Am I the only one who thought our display on Wednesday was incredibly naive. It was like watching Tooting and Mitcham, drawn away at Manchester City in the Cup, and deciding to have a go but in the full knowledge that they would inevitably lose in the end.
The tactics have player-power written all over them; in all his years of management, Conte has never set out a team this way and I don't think he ever would. After Man City it was obvious that a few players were disgruntled with the defensive tactics; but to throw the baby out with the bathwater and go gung-ho against Barcelona was never going to work - Messi couldn't believe his luck and the space that our tactics afforded him.
Once again, we seem to have a team that is being controlled by the players and not the manager.

MDW I agree, people complain about pragmatic football, but without a balanced approach is pointless. Look at PSG, they've a fantastic squad, but will never win the ucl until they add some discipline.

what are you guys are even talking about? maybe we had a safe plan but it had to be thrown out after we conceded a goal in 3rd minute.

We had to score, we tried. I can even say we outplayed Barcelona on their own pitch.

We lost not because of our tactics bit because of silly mistakes, all 3 goals could have been avoided easily.

I'm sorry, LRDit, but I disagree. At 1-0 down we only needed 1 goal to draw level and take it to extra time and penalties if need be. For some reason we went gung-ho and allowed them to play on the break - and, being Messi and Barca, they took full advantage. Naive, naive, naive.

Having read the above post, would not say our performance was naive. I think we imposed our game on them. We conceded four goals over two games, all came from mistakes. Barcelona barely created a chance in the first game and only created chances after we were two down and chasing the game.
After the city game which was an absolutely disgaceful performance. And that was the managers tactics.
As I said at the time I would prefer to go and give it a go and try and win and lose 3-0 than not try and lose 1-0.
So let’s get the season over, sell courtoise and a couple of others. Then no doubt change of manager.
Let’s see what new season brings.

Their only chances came from individual errors, not tactics, we created more had the ball more, it was gifting mistakes to a player like Messi that cost that game, and daft we have zero end product and that decisive final ball.

Fabregas needs to go.

Agree5 1Disagree

15 Mar 2018 17:31:34
agree . fab has been a brilliant player over the years but his legs have gone.
if he does or goes to another club I believe he has to play in a midfield three.

Hopefully cesc goes to Italy, will boss it there, slower game and he could dictate games.

Quick mention to the best player in our squad and probably only world class player we have, N'golo Kante was superb tonight, what a player, feels for him.

Courtois is overrated and doesn't deserve Chelsea making him the highest paid goalkeeper.

Christensen is good but needs to be stronger (or heavier) cos he easily pushed off the ball and not strong on the challenge.

can be world's best if he shoots at the goal a bit more and reduce setting up the goals for players which he is better than. He lacks fighting spirit.

Chelsea should be looking for another young central midfielder with Fabregas' qualities that will replace Fabregas (I think his legs are almost gone) but the vision and creativity is still there.

Kante is very good as always. M. Alonso and Rudiger is good too.

Why isn’t Willian getting any love, easily the best player along side Kante last night.

Agree5 0Disagree

Kiss kiss to Willian, he's lovely. Played with his heart and fought really hard till the end.

Courtois' situation is particularly annoying cos there's another lovely goalkeeper at Chelsea (Caballero) whom has proven himself and made better saves. If I was Conte that is certain to go at the end of the season, I will bench Courtois and give Caballero more games.
The club should take a at the goalkeeping situation; maybe its best to let Courtois go to his family in Madrid and bring in another goalkeeper.

We tried but we are out so now our only real focus should be 4th place, the FA Cup as much as it is a trophy, needs to be secondary. Get into Europe and it will assist with manager and players. Conte will not be around so let's hope we have someone in place with a full summer at his disposal and regardless of what any of us think of the players, there has to be casualties, the team is just not functioning. Back in the day we had Terry as captain and do we miss him, but also Lampard managing midfield and the front, currently we are absolutely rudderless and that has to be addressed. Transfers may well be an issue yet again although looking at our bench last night someone needs to have a good think about our spending, £100m on the bench, something is wrong. Everyone will have a list of who should go and who should stay but I am only going to pick on Morata because I was a huge fan and over the moon we got him but lately his performances and behaviour have been shocking for a professional footballer and sadly, at this moment I would be happy to see the back of him. Any player that keeps hinting they want away or 'x' club are interested should be sent packing also.
