I sit in the Shed Upper and the banter is always something I enjoy but the type of the banter is also I observe.

Last night I had my usual halftime argument with the same guy who wanted Conte, Sari and now Lamps sacked. He also "hates" Willian and over a season will dislike just about every player in the squad. Last night there were a few supporters agreeing with him that Lamps was out of his depth and him and Jodie should get the tin tac.

I don't agree. I think would should stay with Lamps and Jodie for another season or two. It's supposed to be a project but then so was the Sari appointment.

I do think we need to do one or two more pre-window deals because I'm not sure we will be in Champs League next season.

The feeling at Stamford Bridge is changing from positivity to negatively. I heard a chorus of boos at halftime and fulltime.

Maybe Lampard is out of his depth, our recent form would definitely suggest so which is massively concerning. The rotten form we are on spans to 14 games and there is no signs of this being addressed. Yes we are a few transfers short, however, the current crop of players are good enough to have got2.

Most of the boos were mainly due to the ball bouncing off Michy because of his overall build up play which is never going to improve. Giroud needs to be starting from now on. I’d actually go back to 3-4-3 with James and Alonso crossing to Giroud as our focal point. Best plan of attack right now with the injuries we have.

I would like Lampard to be given the start of next year, I know a few would disagree (given Poch's availability) but given that we started this path we may aswel give him some tools to succeed and see what happens. Lampard is in charge of his own destiny and if this poor form continues then I'm sure we won't finish in the top 10 let alone top 5 and that pretty much would force the boards hand.

There is no excuses, the current crop of players are definitely good enough to have got more points than the 15/ 42. Yes you can argue we have played a lot of youngsters but was that necessary? Players like Barkley, Pedro, Giroud, Alonso, Emerson etc should have featured more as they offer experience. Somenof these players are a shell of themselves due to inactivity. Pulisic had to earn his place in the team over Mount who Lamps preferred despite being out of position.

Lamps says yesterday we deserved a lot more. He said the same in the first game vs Utd too. However, over two games we are 6-0 down on aggregate. Add the cup game and its 8_1. Luck is important but we still have to be a lot better than what we are witnessing and not just yesterday. Over the last 14 games we deserve 15 points.

Finally, a question to everyone. If Poch was interested in taking over at Chelsea who would take him?

This may sound bad but I'd like to think Poch is different class.

My guess is Pochettino is available an no thanks!

I’m not sure what foot Michy prefers but as I’ve said before the balance leaves a lot to be desired. No natural left footed players in the starting lineup can’t be right.

Ziyech is a Lampard signing, the club aren't going to sack him.

What were expectations at the start of the season? Seems like people have got carried away with a position in the league that's mainly down to the inconsistency of other teams.

I remember Klopp saying that he shouldn't be judged during his first year at Liverpool as it takes a year to turn a team to his image. Lampard took over in a unique situation, he deserves the summer and a fair chunk of next season.

how can people call for his head he didn't sign a single player other than kovacic since he signed an he's been 1 of the better players dis season. ziyech will add a lot of quality to our squad when he comes in and if we sign a top winger or striker for the left were back in buisness. i think wel end up with onana aswell for some reason and a top left back and who knows if zouma or christensen head off out the gap we could also be in line for a new cb overall we all no what palyers aren't good enough and who needs out and what areas needs to be improved . give them time. they deserve a chamce to build der own team. look at the state of the current squad that line up last nite was dreadfull it shows how limited we are i reckon wel be beaten comfortably against spurs an bayern and within the next 4 weeks i predict wel be 6 points outside top 4.

My view is that Lampards gets given the summer transfer window to re-build and then the start of next season to see how things go. This is despite the fact that Poch is a different class manager.

J our expectations at the start of the season were not great (solid 5th IMO) but that's not the best way to look at it mate because it doesn't give the full story of what's happened during the season so far.

Did we expect expect Man Utd, Arsenal or Spurs to be this poor? I certainly didn't think so. Did we expect Poch to get sacked? Did we expect Jose to come in? Did I expect Sheffield to be 2 points off Chelsea? . Prior to Ancelotti arriving at Everton they were in the relegation zone, however they are now 5 points off Chelsea? We shouldn't be using our expectations at the start of the season to pepper of the cracks.

Here's a fact, any previous managers that have been sacked would have ran away with the top 4 position by now. If you told me at the start of the season that we will go through 14 games and drop points in 10 then I'd think you are having a laugh. We are currently in the bottom 4 in last 14 games on form? I didn't expect that. now unless that changes we are sliding down further.

I am hopeful something clicks soon.

I get what your saying Shak, we had low expectations but at the point where we were clear of the chasing pack there was then an expectation of maintaining the gap.

But it's no coincidence that our overall drop in form has come at at time when Abraham has stopped scoring, Mount isn't as impactive, Pulisic has had knocks and gone off the boil etc. These are all young lads with big roles in the side, the early expectations of where we'd finish were partly down to our reliance on young players who would be inconsistent and suffer knocks.

Peter was a ranieri signing but didn’t meet till after 10 year.

Is Lampard 'out of his depth'? No signings yet so it is hard to say. Nobody available in January that we could get. Sarri ball had deeper issues. Frank can at least change tactics a little. Although Sarri would still be at Chels but he was offered the top job in Italy and so he left. We needed a manager and with no transfers available which manager could we have realistically brought in anyways? Frank played the youth and we all applauded. My only issue with Frank really is that he has persisted with Michy and left Giroud out in the cold. Giroud offer us more.
