Chelsea (Away) Sunday November 11th

Recommended Posts

Not anywhere near composed enough in their half. We just keep giving it back to them.

I actually think Gana has been average. Made the tackles/interceptions I would expect but has also been lucky in areas he has been trying to play and just gave away easy possession (not the only one). 

Seamus and Walcott appear to have no understanding at all.

Gana has been one of our better players.

Unfortunately being average means he has been one of our better players. Gomes easily the standout for me. Digne doing well defensively too.

He's got 3 tackles and 2 interceptions already.... wtf are you smoking. 

Digne playing superb but yes stop trying to look for things with gana. Starting to look pretentious

Gomez has made two good passes this game.... other than that he’s been invisible to be fair. Quality when he gets the ball, but not one to take the game on. 

Many players have been above average. Gana, the obvious one. Richarlison has been very good. Holding the ball and turning. Digne has been excellent as well.

Only really Sigurdsson who is struggling.

Another week, another display of inept refereeing.

mina’s challenge won the ball.

jorghino went in 2 footed into Gylfi’s ankle and Alonso went straight through Walcott and only jorghino got a yellow.

Rudiger was embarrassing at the end.

Defensivey we look very strong, we just need to get our passes together into their half.

Nervous that the ref will steal the headlines in this one.

Most of them have been straight forward, picking up balls from mistakes or with others around the ball. More to it than stats. 

That last paragraph is fucking rich coming from you. Im not saying he is playing bad, he is just doing what I expect of him, probably 6 / 10. Some people at the time of my post were suggesting he was playing far better. I would say only Gomes and Digne are ahead of that. The rest are similar with probably the front 4 falling below it.

Can't bare Kevin Friend he's a gung-ho card happy playdoe faced cunt 

We need to settle down in the second half and get our act together in the final third, Bernard isn'tt utilized out on the left he needs to drift into the middle and feed Richarlison 

I'd be tempted to move him inside and pull Sigurdsson for Lookman if he doesn't up his game second half, but we might get over ran physically

Exactly stop jumping on stats and watch the game.

This match is being dictated by how poor the refereeing has been. We’ve had a number of calls that should have gone against us as fouls, but they’ve had a number of calls that should have been cards. Some truly nasty challenges.

I worry that as the game goes on and the refereeing is so one sided that we will suffer a serious injury.

It's about time that our manager did what Pep Guardiola has done and put the focus on the referee before a big game and demand protection for our players in the same way that Hazard gets protected.

Both Sigurdsson and Walcott have been done with some really cynical challenges and the Chelsea players are only going to be encouraged by the refs inaction

Really, Sigurdsson has been everywhere. Epitomising the defend from the front mentality

Gomes is the only reason we are getting up field. He has started every one of our slick moves by taking playersout of the game and then moving the ball on to someone in space. Without him we would be lumping it forward with no control. He is a cut above in that regard.

He has but has not got it right yet in attack. I think its probably only a matter of time. Walcott and Richie have been offside when he has tried to slip them in on a couple of occasions but even then the ball was over/under hit. He isnt far off but if he keeps getting those opportunities he will find a pass eventually.

5 times a olyer has been carded in the first half  this ref wants to be under the spotlight

Probably should have been more cards, to be honest. His inaction for a couple of bad challenges have caused this match to be completely out of control, and, like Paul, I’m seriously worried one of our players will get injured by another reckless challenge unless Friend gets his shit together.

The two tackles where horrible.

the Gylfi one again, is clearly out of frustration and he has no control over it, easy way to break someone’s ankle. 

Sick of this trying to con the ref into getting someone sent off. I really hope Rudiger commits a foul and gets his second yellow, absolutely deserves it for going down like that.

Id still stick as we are. Bernie has done some good work at the back and he has helped Gomes control the ball up the field when the play has been down the left. He isnt making himself enough of a threat but if he is helping us go from back to front. I think we can wait and see how the 2nd half develops before making any changes.

Straight forward?  What's straight forward about tackling hazard as last man?

Gomes???  What has he done.? Explain.

Hence the word "most" and not all. 

I have already said about Gomes in this thread.

Big chance for Walcott. Great ball Siggy. Said he would make one!
