    • I hope he's just saying that and it's not his current mindset.
    • Haaland does seem like a pure Chelsea signing. Top player most fans want Chelsea just bang the buck down and get. Mbappe is just out of everyone's league except the super rich clubs. 
    • I think two incredible, but highly intense (in terms of continued effort on the pitch) seasons is taking its toll. I also agree that stadiums without fans has dulled our instinct and intensity to some degree and made football less enjoyable for both fans and players alike.   For me, the slight decline in performance started after the March lockdown, the players knew they had run away with the league and after all that effort over the previous two or three seasons they had reached the pinnacle, achieved their destiny. For me it was inevitable there would be some kind of drop off.   Signing Jota masked that as he arrived with amazing enthusiasm and hit the ground running, scoring goals and generally looking a brilliant signing. He inspired the team to reach some of the peaks we had in the previous seasons, but for some of the players the performances were already starting to become a little inconsistent. Losing Van Dijk and Thiago so early was bad and we have been hit by further injuries and poor officiating which has now probably now also taken it's toll on the players. It feels like there is a little negativity around the club and no fans to challenge the players to move beyond it.   This run of games was going to happen and we are comparing the team to the amazing heights they have reached in previous seasons, understandable as we know what they have been capable of, but perhaps a little unfair given how much they have put out there on the pitch for 2/3 years. Every squad needs to be freshened up regularly and we did that to some extent. If we hadn't lost so many players early on (including the new players we brought in), and who knows what effect covid might have had on some of the players (in terms of overall fitness/energy), then perhaps we would be in a better position right now. However, we are in a bit of a rut and the front three are definitely struggling for form. I have been getting very frustrated with our slow attacking and often toothless play and yearn for the quick, incisive interchanges in the final third that we know they are capable of producing. I am sure it will return and we have shown it in patches like the Palace game, but I am half expecting this inconsistent run to continue for a bit longer. I hope I am wrong as, as you rightly say, it's no fun watching this on the telly.
    • We haven’t scored in 361 minutes of football. Against some sides that there’s no excuse not too and we haven’t been testing opposition keepers with shots either.
        The last few games we have fell off a cliff it’s why we’ve gone from being top to 4th with Everton able to overtake us with a win.
