Another performance I'd soon like to forget. I was never happy with us playing 3 at the back, it helps against certain teams, but against teams like today it just feels like we are a man down half the time. Felt like we needed to suffocate them high up in their half, but I don't think we have the right personnel in the midfield to combat the counter. I also don't think we have much inventivness in the final third, we get to that position a lot and we just pass it sideways until we lose possession. Is that down to the players, the coaching staff or somewhere in-between? Praying we can get everyone back fit and find some form into the last part of the season.

I want Lamps to stay but he needs some experienced help IMO.

Tom my opinion on Lampard has changed mate. Last 16 games have been stressful. Surely we have the better squad then most of these mid table teams and yet we constantly drop points.

I would be surprised if he stays on as coach unless he can turn this around and it seems unlikely atm.

Things can change very quickly Shak by it is very worrying.

give him a chance. It's not his team . we were carried by Hazard and kante past few seasons, apart from those 2 we haven't recruited any world class players. let him build his team, the youngsters will improve, and for heavens sake be patient and stop calling for his sacking. All teams go through rebuilding, just be patient and accept because we are "chelsea" we have no god given right to be successful every year.

Sid, I think I would be considered as one of the more calm posters and I agree losing a player like Hazard would hurt any team but let’s also remember Conte got pelters by fans and posters and he won trophies. Sarri got trashed by posters and fans when we finished 3rd and won a trophy.

I also except our problems with the last two transfer windows but for me our performance against a good Bayern side was not good enough.

Today we didn’t play badly but nothing looks like changing. We still haven’t worked out best shape, we still haven’t worked out our best centre halves and the midfield changes almost every week.

Yes, we’ve been unlucky with injuries and NO I don’t want Lamps sacked but something has to change.

Lamps is learning all the time Tom. Think we need a coach for the defence in the summer, maybe a certain JT would be available. If lamps is struggling, then I hope he is not stubborn or arrogant enough to admit he also needs help from an older and more experienced head. ( not talking about JT obviously) .

Sid I'd like to ask you a quick question if I may?

Do we need Eden Hazard, Kante and additional world class recruits to beat teams that are in the relegation zone such as the ones we have dropped points to in the past 16 games? I'm just curious.

As Tom says, we still haven’t worked out our best shape, we still haven’t worked out our best centre halves and the midfield changes almost every week.

To build a team you need a identity and unfortunately its not Frank's fault that he was bought into chelsea whilst he was trying to build his own identity at Derby. Does he have the time at Chelsea to experiment? Results are paramount for the club.

Also your right we have no right to be successful every season, however as a big club we should beat mid table teams to lower end teams comfortably.

{Ed018's Note - this team needs to bring in some talent this summer if they want to push forward. Yes they should beat teams like Bournemouth with the squad they have but they can’t compete with Liverpool or City as it stands. If other teams like United, Arsenal, Spurs improve over the summer and Chelsea don’t, they won’t have a sniff at top 4}

01 Mar 2020 02:14:24
That's my point Ed18 that we should beat teams like Bournemouth with our current squad. We seem to repeatedly drop points to these teams and it will hurt us massively unless Frank can address this decline. I'm not sure what the issue is with our defence, we seem to concede everytime the opposition attack.

I understand we are nowhere near the levels of Liverpool or Man City (miles off) .

{Ed018's Note - I went off on a rant on another one of your posts. We all want what’s best}

01 Mar 2020 02:33:23
That's it Ed18. We just what's best for the club.

I look at yesterday's team and think who would have got into a chelsea team of a few years ago, not one of them. We have a mixture of older players getting pass their sell by date, and youngsters who are gaining experience and are far from the finished article. Frank has over achieved this year, based on players at his disposal and taking into account injuries. I do think, however as I said before, he needs help on the defensive side of things. An experienced defensive coach to work with the defence and goalkeepers.
Based on the 2 teams put out yesterday, are our players really any better than the Bournemouth players.
