Chelsea (A) 20/9/20 - Premier League

Recommended Posts

This will be a tough test because chelsea's new boys will all want to impress their new manager and fans. If Virgil and co are not on their game at the back, it will be a hard slog and I hope we're not going back to 'we'll score 1 more than you' type of football.

 

Hoping for the win but I think this will be a draw.

Last season's fixture took place pretty much a year to the day since this game. Some shite featuring Ed Sheeran was No1 in the charts. He could spend 30 seconds just farting into a mic, and blerts up and down the land would still buy it and stream it to get it to No1. Anyway, we won 2-1 thanks to Trent's peach of a free kick (see above) and Bobby's bullet header from a free kick.

 

Like ourselves, Chelsea have been ever-presents in the top flight since the Premier League era (or football itself, if you believe Sky propaganda) began. Stamford Bridge was not a happy hunting ground. It took 12 attempts to register our first win there, on January 7th 2004. It was the start of Cheyrou's purple patch, and probably the moment Abramovich realised that all the millions he'd spent on transfers after arriving the previous summer were wasted while he had Ranieri in charge. The Italian got them a second-place finish in the league, 11 points behind unbeaten Arsenal, and the semi-finals of the Champions League where they were beaten by eventual runners-up Monaco.

 

When Cheyrou found a bit of form, Michael Andrews and Gary Jules were top of the charts with their cover of Tears For Fears' 'Mad World'. It was a mad world indeed when Cheyrou briefly morphed from hide-in-the-corner-afraid-of-his-own-shadow flyweight into a cross between Zidane and Papin.

 

 

We need to get to grips with the defensive side of our game sharpish. We've been flaky for months now, and it was also in evidence in the reverse fixture at the tail end of last season. It might be entertaining for the neutral but on balance I prefer the mentality monster approach of getting the job done with minimum fuss. A return to defensive organisation and concentration would be most welcome in this game.

3pts pls. Put money on Salah and Werner scoring though.

Giroud is the bet......scores against us every time. He'll get on and score.

I’ve noticed an increased sense of pessimism and knicker wetting across the forum because we appear to be doing it on the cheap and wringing another season out of the same players. Be that as it may we finished 33 points ahead of these cunts last season. They lost 12 games as well. I’m sure the new signings will improve them and it’s never easy going to their place but I still think we’ll beat them.

The Cheyrou game, we win but I felt ashamed, we played like a bottom team, typically Houllier !

Pulisic is back in training too and we don't do well with quick skilful types running at our right hand side especially. Their defence is still pretty bad however. We either press high and force mistakes or we hit them on the counter. Decisions decisions

If we defend like we did on Saturday this won't end well . Fully expect a massive improvement at the back and a narrow win. 


If we defend like we did Saturday and Chelsea play like they did today it will end 8-4 to us.

This is the game that the team need IMO. They know against Chelsea they cant afford to be so sloppy as they have the players to punish us. 4 points from the next two games would be par IMO. Btw, Reece James is class. Interesting that they moved him to centre midfield in the second half.
