Chelsea (Away) Sunday August 27th

Recommended Posts

Koemans fault. Not working. Not learning.

Not good enough.

 

And people say he's in line to take control of Barca one day. Laughable, at times he very questionable.

 

We need a change right now not at half time. The game could be over by then.

To be fair Chelsea look very lively, bustling, passing and moving, urgency. We just look like we don't know what were doing and can't be fucked.

That's because that's what decent teams do.

 

What's worse is that last week Chelsea were absolutely dominated by Spurs (but carried a threat).

Davies has been shite today. I wonder if he has been told to just sit back, because he is making no effort to break even into a jog today, either to mark up or to find a bit of space to receive the ball.

I am actually laughing my head off at the thought of anyone saying we can challenge for the top 4. Not a fucking chance. We've spent a lot of money but we're still absolutely nowhere near any of the top sides. We don't have a drop of creativity in our side and I cannot believe that we have still not signed a playmaker.

 

Our manager isn't helping either setting us up to fail right from the start. Burnley got the win here because they attacked, we haven't even tried.

The defence is so deep that the midfield either had to drop in and leave the forwards isolated or push up and leave holes at the back.

 

The back 3 leaves so much space. Go with a flat back 4, tell the full backs to hold the defensive line, use 5 midfielders and put wingers on to provide width.

Pretty sure he has been asked to sit back and play the Schneiderlin role alongside Gana. When he has been on the ball he has looked up and tried to move us forward but Siggy and Rooney are offering us nothing and Sandro needs to start trying to get in behind as well as coming short.

excuses excuses he's been shit, a pile of it today. hospital ball passes, walking about, no press, you bitch about the rest of the team and yet give him a pass. no from me.

Yep it was exactly the same last year, caught in no man's land. People were having a pop at Rom and Ross last season in big games but as I said last year, it's shite tactics and our forwards are isolated from our midfield.

this year rarely i have seen links between midfield and attack... at most the defensive wingers are linking with attack...

This about sums it up for me. Lost count of how many times we've passes the ball slowly across the backline, passed it into davies who's passed it onto another player who just gets two chelsea men on him straight away and has to pass it miles back or is robbed. Every other player stationary making no attempt to find a pocket of space or given an option to the ball holder. Surely this is one of the most basic things to do in football?

Did I say he was playing well? The whole team is shite, no-one is covering themselves in glory and both him and Gana are having too many players to try and cover and then have no options ahead of them. I judge people on the situation they are in and they are all lost and at sea and I don't see why a 18 year old lady should be the one kicking the can.

 

Untwist your knickers pal.

It IS shite tactics.

 

Koeman is fully to blame for our lacklustre performances against the big teams. He packs the defense out and surrenders possession but we have no threat on the counter attack and Premier League teams are too good to fall for it.

 

If you can't pass through them, which we absolutely fucking can't, then our only route to goal is going to be from set pieces and we haven't even been able to force a corner.

Oh and Gana has been directly linked with both goals and could have been sent off but yep blame the young lad.

I'm genuinely worried right now. I know we need time, it's virtually a new team. However, there is such precious LITTLE creativity that I feel like we are down the wrong road right now. I don't know the answer, but we're not far off from the Martinez era aside from a slightly tighter defence.

This hasn't surprised me one bit. Recent history, hot day, lots of travel this week, lack of creativity & setup meant only one result today.

 

 

However, I always live in hope of a miracle
