Lampard in.

That is all.

Hoping nothing changes and he’s given a good deal of time. We went on a 16 match unbeaten run only a month before. Players look tired, city had over nearly 10 days off. We didn’t. We’ll get there, let’s hope the board see that too.

Up the Chels and stay safe people!

If city had time off and we have had a busy schedule, why were we pressing them so much while they knocked it about us, I’d of liked to have been compact and solid and counter attack, not press high up then cross to werner, in that unbeaten run we drew to united and spurs and Sevilla, other games in there were draws to Southampton West Brom Rennes trasnador and wind v Barnsley Burnley Sheffield United Newcastle, all bottom half teams, I wasnn by pleased we were back to basics and looked solid, we’ve gone backwards,

I too want him to stay and turn it around, but he has to start helping himself with his team selections.

I have no clue why Werner keeps on starting. Clearly he's in a rough patch and is giving Lampard very little on the pitch. Callum has been our best winger yet gets benched the moment Ziyech is fit. Tammy as well, he's been our best striker this season yet Werner is preferred up front.

Lampard needs to play the guys that are performing, not the guys that cost the most in transfer fees.

Yesterday was a horrible first half, with a disaster class from both Kovacic and Kante. The players also need to take responsibility at this point, especially the experienced ones. All of them have to be better, coaches and players. The good part is, I'm convinced they all can be better. Title challenge is out the window, but top 4 is still attainable if they get their act together.

Also, DM like Soumare or recalling Ampadu in January would improve us a lot (though I realize recalling Ampadu might not be an option in the agreement)

As one of the Ed’s mentioned before, I don’t think Kante works in this team anymore. Or something along those
Lines. And it’s true, struggles under pressure with simple 5-10 yard passes. I agree on CHO playing, Ziyech - Giroud should be the duo either starting together or coming on together. Pumping balls into the box with a 5ft 11 Werner won’t work, unless he’s arriving late at the back from the wing.

Regarding pressuring - that’s what we’ve always done against City and it’s worked, shuttle for 10-15mins, have a break and defend tightly - that’s what didn’t happen. Then means we have to press more.

Think you need to calm down and lower your expectations Matt. Top 4 minimum is all that is needed for this season again and to blood in the new signings. What you think we should be beating everyone because we spent so much money in the summer? Really. 😳🙄🤦🏼‍♂️ Football doesn’t work like that I’m afraid. We are still a team in transition, no where near the finished product.

We’ve hit a bump in the road. and? We were top in December if I remember correctly, this season is all over the place, with teams dropping points everywhere, look where Arsenal where, United where, a few wins, a bit of confidence back and bang. They kick on again. It will happen with us too. Still a long way to go.

Hoping nothing changes lol says it all.

04 Jan 2021 14:34:58
I don’t think expecting us to be better than last season after having a full season and £220m investment in better players is high expectations, I’d say it’s a bare minimum.

04 Jan 2021 14:57:52
Jackson - if Tammy is our best striker we’re doomed.

04 Jan 2021 15:18:37
Agree Jimbo. Thank god we have an ambitious owner.

04 Jan 2021 15:21:55
Yep nothing needs changing. What a surprise you want changes and big ones.

Stick to playing fifa mate where everything works instantly. Jeez, some people have been so spoilt with the success we’ve been accustomed too.

Some of us had to wait years for a decent side, and I for one would be more then willing to give this manager and this set of exciting young players ample time to deliver.

{Ed047's Note - just had to edit your post a little Adam. Stay chilled mate. 🙂

04 Jan 2021 15:41:07
Fair enough. Cheers Ed047. Just so difficult sometimes. 👍🏼.

{Ed047's Note - I know mate and no probs.

04 Jan 2021 15:41:50
I think we’re exciting now, especially when we work ball out wide and cross to our shortest player, or when we get thumped at home against city, not as if pep changes things up a lot.

Not as if we all know cities losses come from being compact and counter attacked, exciting watch arsenal play there way back into confidence, but it’s frank first season so we should see how it pans out, not as if we’re worse than last year and have a worst squad, not like werners confidence is rock bottom and been hauled of at half time and frank JR mount plays every game and every minute despite performance, frank in, results aside we play some beautiful football.

04 Jan 2021 16:34:46
Ahh time from a break here too. Jeez, social media is sooo draining. Take care Eds, Posters.

{Ed047's Note - and you Adam, hope to see you back soon mate.

Never played fifa in my life and supported cfc since 1978 so I think I have been patient.
