Looks like we might all love Mino Raiola again in the nearest future, maybe I might start confessing my own love for him now. I think Mino is indeed rep some good players, I have to confess I like Donnaruma and Erling Haaland. Hi Mino🖐🏾.

I thought we were the better side but Utd always looked dangerous on the break.

Ziyech improved slightly in the second half but that wasn't hard. He looks a shadow of the player he was for Ajax. He also looks unfit and unable to cope with the physicality of the Premiership. Strength work needed IMO.

I'm not a fan of Rudiger but he played well again.

Christensen is just oozing class.

Chilwell good at both ends of the pitch. Good choice by TT.

James excellent when he came on.

Kante and Kovacic both very good

Mount just works his socks off and creates so much space for others.

This wasn't a game for Giroud. I'm assuming Tammy was injured as he would have made the two Utd CH's drop a bit deeper as they did when Werner came on.

I guess my MOM was Kante.

Ummm, I thought that Kante was off the pace in the 1st half but improved massively in the 2nd.

Christensen continues to amaze - he is looking top class every game and is becoming undroppable.

My MoM = Kova.

My heart stops every time that Mendy has the ball at his feet.

28 Feb 2021 18:54:42
Tammy not injured. TT just left him out of the squad.

No point being clever with the benefit of hindsight.

28 Feb 2021 18:58:48
Tom I thought the defenders did well not as convinced as you about Chilwell. I like Mount but I’m not sure about where he should play to make the most of him. I worry about CHO he didn’t play that badly but he isn’t a game changer his decision-making is poor. I am also:worried about all our forwards ; none of them seem capable of taking a game by the scruff of the neck. Maybe time for a change of formation and/ or personnel . Top four is going to be difficult but we must keep going .

28 Feb 2021 19:08:19
Just like me when I was younger, I used play left back- left back in the dressing room😊.

28 Feb 2021 19:12:38
Christiansen looking nuch better and nore confident, a back 3 realky suits him. Akso agree that Rudiger generalky v good today except one moment when he passed straight to a United pkayer deep in our half. But ptherwise he pkayed with energy and some creativity. Not a game for OG and inability of other attacking pkayers to score of late a real concern in yerms of getting a top 4 place.

Just thinking about Alonso's foul throw yesterday; coincidentally I think it was on MOTD at the weekend the pundits were laughing about an obvious foul throw that wasn't given. Have EPL referees forgotten about the rule? Talking about throw-ins, Ian Hutchinson's long throws would be useful at times.

{Ed077's Note - not many people care to look at throws-ins that much until someone gets caught a few times like Bellerin for example. And then everybody starts paying more attention to that player. Even one of the Leicester goals against Villa this past weekend(2nd goal) started from a foul throw in by a Leicester player(Castagne I think) that went unpunished and unnoticed. It happens far too many times without getting noticed.}

Historically I've been pretty damning of him, but in all fairness Christensen is playing himself into saving Chelsea a hell of a lot of money in the summer!

Personally, I still have question marks over his suitability in a back four. But, in the middle of a three, he's looked excellent.

I think the club should give Thiago Silva another year and review the CB position in the summer of 2022. Hopefully Sarr and other youngsters would have had opportunities to develop by then and we'll know what we need. But at the moment, certainly when playing a back three, Christensen looks like a player whom we can build a long term defence around.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Feb 2021 12:19:15
Christensen has been one of the big improvers under TT that’s for sure “J”.

Playing in the centre of a three seems to play to his strengths.

I’m not sure about the terms of Sarr’s loan but in the back of my my mind I thought it was for two years? If that is the case it could well be that mutual break clauses exist.

{Ed002's Note - Sarr is due to return in the summer.}

24 Feb 2021 12:59:44
No doubt Christensen has been excellent recently but I worry about him in a back four. I don’t rate Zouma or Rudiger. Centre backs are something we need to look at in the summer. I would like Silva to stay for next season. We have some promising CBs, Sarr, Guehi and that big beast whose name I have forgotten in the under 23s. It may be too soon for all of them though: so we probably need to buy in the summer.

24 Feb 2021 13:11:24
We a post conversation about this very subject last week Jimbo.

I think two CH’s will probably leave this summer but that doesn’t mean we will splash the cash on replacements. A lot will depend on how our coaches access the the performance of our loan players.

I’ve only read reports and seen very small snippets of Guehi at Swansea and only got information from fellow posters about Sarr but I’m hoping at least one of them will be in our squad for next season.

24 Feb 2021 13:31:13
It would be good if one of our young CBs could step up to the plate and, of course, there is Tomori, if he comes back from Milan.

24 Feb 2021 13:39:54
Tom I have watched some videos of Sarr he looks very good ; solid in the air, very quick and can pass the ball. I accept that these videos aren’t going to show mistakes and I suppose you could edit a video to make Alsonso look good.

{Ed077's Note - Ed001 seems to think he is a good player with potential and I agree with his views about Sarr. Also Sarr can play as a CB or LB so his versatility can be very useful as well.}

24 Feb 2021 14:02:26
Thanks for the information Jimbo and Ed.

A CH who is naturally left foot would IMO would be a big help. Also any defender who can play in more than one position is also useful.

I will try and find a site to look at some of his games.

{Ed077's Note - Welcome TomB}

24 Feb 2021 12:52:51
Thanks for the clarification Ed. Much appreciated.

24 Feb 2021 14:47:18
Tom there is definitely a video of Sarr on “ ScoutNation”.

24 Feb 2021 14:51:26
Thanks again Jimbo.

24 Feb 2021 16:52:27
We've got an embarrassment of riches at CB within the youth setup, and out on loan with Guehi and Sarr, it's probably our strongest area at the moment. Obviously all won't make it at the club, but the cream will rise to the top and there enough talent there that I'm 100% sure some will make it.

Having said all that, I'm still scratching my head about Tomori.

24 Feb 2021 17:17:51
As long as it’s your head “J”.

24 Feb 2021 17:53:34
I have a feeling Sarr will make it. Tomori, who knows what happened- he was on the bench for the Milan derby last Sunday, mind you ACM lost 3-0.

24 Feb 2021 18:43:29
The Milan fans weren't happy about him being on the bench for that game, certainly not when they went three down.

25 Feb 2021 00:33:55
Brilliant Tom had me in stitches.

23 Feb 2021 23:27:34
Couldn't fault anybody, Worked from front to back, Cho showed great attitude, werner was an outlet, jorginho and kov very good, again didn't create but very good win.

24 Feb 2021 09:23:43
Matt I agree it was a real team performance and I didn’t really think about who was man of the match and nobody was poor. TT is definitely having an impact. If we could just find that cutting edge in the last third we would be flying and my nerves wouldn’t be in tatters.

24 Feb 2021 09:42:25
Agree matt mate good to watch us play well again
Good ol giroud never let's us down and such a good goal
Shame Mount and jorgi got booked but I'm sure Tommy tuchs will sort something out
Good to see the boys really playing for the new manager
Looking forward to rest of season now shame Boris is starting to lift restrictions means il have to go back to work b4 season finishes bloody cheek.

Wrote a whole post about the game, which was deleted I guess.

But to sum it up: the problems in the current Chelsea team runs so much deeper than who is coaching the team and it was evident yet again against a slightly better team (albeit they didn't haven many first team players in the game) .

Buying players just because you can doesn't work and it might cause even more problems.

Today was a prime example of how our approach is wrong and how we should be taking a very different route going forward.

Timo yet again flat and inspiring.
HZ probably not suited for PL.
Pulisic always out injured.
Alonso too slow and doesn't offer anything.
Kovacic too inconsistent.
Kante isn't a 6 and you just can't play him and Kova in a pivot.
James not bad but could have been a lot better.
Our back 3 not bad but could have done better on the goal and they are not the ones to play in a back 3 which I have a big problem with personally.
Tammy didn't have many chances but wasn't good overall.
CHO uninspiring.
Only player that showed any signs of effort and tried to create was Mason Mount.

We were lucky to come away with a draw which was again possible by a penalty.
That's 4 points short for TT I guess.
Also his subs today were really awful.

Let's see what we do against Atlético.

Interesting post Ashk. I agree with a lot of your points.

As you say the AM game will be an interesting test.

I think TT will be our manager for some time and I hope he is successful but IMO today’s game wasn’t his finest hour.

20 Feb 2021 21:01:31
Whilst Mount may develop into one heck of a player, he needs to vastly improve his decision-making in the final third, and PLEASE will someone explain the offside rule to Tammy - so frustrating!

20 Feb 2021 21:26:51
I can see no reason why Mount shouldn’t go on improving.

If he does, he will become one hell of a player.

20 Feb 2021 22:24:47
Ashk not clear what your point is all I can glean from it was that we shouldn’t buy any players and you are unhappy with everything. Your usual answer to everything is to play academy players. What do you what Chelsea to do to make you happy?

21 Feb 2021 00:07:09
I don’t understand the criticism of Havertz given he’s injured and probs still not over C.V. 100%? He’s nit been available since TT took over so he could be playing every second of every match when he’s back? Honestly confuses me.

22 Feb 2021 12:20:09
its not criticism of havertz its criticism of fans seemingly having amnesia and forgetting how off the pace he looked even before his challenge/ injury problems. he's a long way off starting for a top 4 side which is what we want to be.

23 Feb 2021 07:38:58
Ashk121, i disagree on an lot of points there.

we buy players knowing that they are world class and with that kind of talent, one should be able to make it in most systems. The PL is a lot more physical and a faster than other leagues but that doesn't mean the palyer is not suited to the PL.

every team / coach has a method to his madness and it takes some time to click. case and point Mahrez . he looked poor in a city team in the PL while looked immense at LC. give it time. I get the criticism but some players need time . what i think we could have done better is not bring in many players too quickly but i guess we had a small window to get them and we had to act or lose the opportunity.

dont get me wrong, not all players youve mentioned will come good but players are developing all the time and chnage their game to the needs of the league and the team tactics. I feel TT is a much better manager than FL (who needs time n experience) .

I hope we do a number on AM but i doubt we'd go too far in the CL this season and work on consolidating the top4 position and give it a go next season.

Keep the thoughts coming . love to hear what you all think.
KTBFFH.

20 Feb 2021 14:42:17
What confused me. was CHO sub . did he. pick. up a injury?

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Feb 2021 14:45:28
Wasn't doing what TT wanted him to do apparently. Wasn't happy with his energy, counter pressing etc. Embarrassing moment for CHO and we will see how he responds.

20 Feb 2021 14:45:37
No Wheely TT subbed him for lack of effort.

20 Feb 2021 15:00:25
i thought he done OK tbh. Never mind. shows TT won't take lazy players.

20 Feb 2021 15:00:42
HZ is screwed then 🤣.

20 Feb 2021 14:34:18
Hugely disappointing result 2 points dropped against a side that has had vast number scored against them recently and confidence woyld have been rock bottom we just have to find tgat creativity we have all seen lacking in recent games. Pulusic back fit and in form could be key to this.
