Sorry peeps, Players not good enough, Tactics are mediocre and we are not top 4 material. I have already written off this season. I do hope to see Parrott soon. I see no harm playing him, all the nonsense about not being ready is pure bs to me in my opinion.
The more games we go without scoring Jose will surely have to take the 'gamble'

Winks can't pass
He is a squad player and should never be starting 11. People will disagree massively with me, but he isn't a DM at all and is a decent CM who can come on when players are tired and drive us forward but if he lined up against us i wouldn't be scared one bit and actually look forward to us dominating him.

Mourinho deserves the summer but fuck me I reckon a majority of the managers in the league would get a better tune out of our squad than he is in terms of performances
I really like his mentality, thus far, but I just can't get on board with his tactics. At all. I hope he fixes things second half.

Tues: ‘Alli is crap, needs to be dropped’
Sat: ‘see, it’s not Alli’s fault’.

Tues: ‘Ndombele has to start after that good 10 mins’
Sat: ‘Ndombele unfit, needs to come off’

Tues: ‘Aurier a liability’
Sat: ‘see, its not Auriers fault’

Poor defending by Toby.

Need to get Lo Celso into the game more & Winks not playing well either, plus apart from his efforts on goal Moura has been his usual self in giving the ball away virtually every time he gets it.

I just dont believe missing Kane and Son justify regressing into total negativity tactically (and lets be honest it wasnt particularly better when they werent injured).

There is nothing stopping us still trying to press, still trying to maintain possession and move the opponent around, still playing some tidy football. We have some good footballers on the pitch, many teams manage to play decent football with much weaker playing resources.

So much whining.

We have Tanganga and Davies at FB, an aging CB pairing, our main midfielder Sissoko out and have our best 2 forwards out, YET we create some big chances and contain Chelsea pretty well.

I'm pleased with how we look so far.
I'm all for more positivity and less rancid bitterness in match threads but... really?

pointless if the team is instructed to lump it constantly.
Have we though? Movement off the ball when the back five have had it has been shite. If the central mid ball players don't show then what else do you do? Keep tapping it around at the back? The fucking excuses people will make for certain players on here and not others is hilarious.

I would put lamela for davies or verts. What's the fckg point in playing a 541 anymore when we're losing?

You can actually see ndombele, winks, lo celso n bergwijn able to do the short intricate passes amongst themselves, so i wont take any of these 4 out yet

You see the difference between a team with and without a striker.

Chelsea can press knowing any forward ball a Spurs midfielder makes will be won by the defenders. Knowing how to time runs and holding the ball up is a massive difference between the teams.

Our players should be attacking the ball instead of waiting for it. Their players are more geed up than ours are.

Everytime we play Chelsea their players play like mad-men
We have a game plan? Is this the game plan?
Our game plan these days seems to be, play s*** for 70 minutes, invite pressure (even though we can't defend well), give the ball to the opposition as often as possible, concede, then 'spring into action' for a 15 minute period where, we hope we can score several goals.

We only seem to attack with 3 players. We need to defend with 5 and attack with 5. We have wingbacks that havent crossed half in open play bar twice. We are playing like a league one side with a back 5 and then 4 infront
