Salah and de Bruyn 2 of the best players in the world, talent that doesn't come along very often. Our scouting system and management spotted them, they wanted to come and they both joined.
What went wrong? Did they expect to play all the time because they knew how good they were? Did the management at the time not see how good they were? Did we get rid of exceptional talent because of someone's ego or the ability of someone to recognise such talent or both. They don't appear to have had any problems at other clubs.
Maybe they upset Vera the cleaner by not raising the toilet seat when having a pee, so we got rid.

What went wrong? One word, Jose: hseems to have no patience and no desire to invest in players, particularly those that need an arm round them. We are seeing his wonderful man management skills at United now and it is baffling. You also had Lukaku who he let go and has now paid £75M for. I know he won you some titles and his record is right up there but seeing Jose close up isn't filling me with confidence.

His ego has certainly escalated in recent years and his bizarre after match interviews were getting embarrassing for us although he was suffering the 'transfer' syndrome that seems to beset us every year and has had an impact on Conte. At the moment I would not have too much confidence in the Alexis Sanchez bit of business, 'can' win you a game but can equally be completely missing in others.

Not just Jose - we lost Chalobah last summer - we need to play our youngsters.

18 Mar 2018 16:25:05
When you put very high short term goals/ expectations on the coaches we hire, they tend to play the players that are experienced that will give them quick results- which will mean less or no time for young players (which results in negative development for young players) .

18 Mar 2018 19:35:56
Such a fine line here, it’s not a case of just playing youngsters when they may have talent but lack big game experience, I think the loaning of players works as long as once they have that game time we give them a chance, KDB was superb in Germany salah was great in Italy yet we never got them back to chelsea, Lukaku also showed at Everton quality, but he I think wanted assurances of playing time. With all the players we khave loaned there would always be ones who slip away, loftus looks good in spells but injured a lot, mushonda can’t get game at Celtic, Baker has hardy played, yet fans call for them to be at chelsea?

Am I the only one who thought our display on Wednesday was incredibly naive. It was like watching Tooting and Mitcham, drawn away at Manchester City in the Cup, and deciding to have a go but in the full knowledge that they would inevitably lose in the end.
The tactics have player-power written all over them; in all his years of management, Conte has never set out a team this way and I don't think he ever would. After Man City it was obvious that a few players were disgruntled with the defensive tactics; but to throw the baby out with the bathwater and go gung-ho against Barcelona was never going to work - Messi couldn't believe his luck and the space that our tactics afforded him.
Once again, we seem to have a team that is being controlled by the players and not the manager.

MDW I agree, people complain about pragmatic football, but without a balanced approach is pointless. Look at PSG, they've a fantastic squad, but will never win the ucl until they add some discipline.

16 Mar 2018 22:52:57
what are you guys are even talking about? maybe we had a safe plan but it had to be thrown out after we conceded a goal in 3rd minute.

We had to score, we tried. I can even say we outplayed Barcelona on their own pitch.

We lost not because of our tactics bit because of silly mistakes, all 3 goals could have been avoided easily.

17 Mar 2018 11:01:02
I'm sorry, LRDit, but I disagree. At 1-0 down we only needed 1 goal to draw level and take it to extra time and penalties if need be. For some reason we went gung-ho and allowed them to play on the break - and, being Messi and Barca, they took full advantage. Naive, naive, naive.

17 Mar 2018 11:45:04
Having read the above post, would not say our performance was naive. I think we imposed our game on them. We conceded four goals over two games, all came from mistakes. Barcelona barely created a chance in the first game and only created chances after we were two down and chasing the game.
After the city game which was an absolutely disgaceful performance. And that was the managers tactics.
As I said at the time I would prefer to go and give it a go and try and win and lose 3-0 than not try and lose 1-0.
So let’s get the season over, sell courtoise and a couple of others. Then no doubt change of manager.
Let’s see what new season brings.

17 Mar 2018 12:35:58
Their only chances came from individual errors, not tactics, we created more had the ball more, it was gifting mistakes to a player like Messi that cost that game, and daft we have zero end product and that decisive final ball.

William CM instead of FAB . fact! can break with pace. has vision. will work . like when we tried luiz DM.

Fabregas needs to go.

15 Mar 2018 17:31:34
agree . fab has been a brilliant player over the years but his legs have gone.
if he does or goes to another club I believe he has to play in a midfield three.

15 Mar 2018 18:44:30
Hopefully cesc goes to Italy, will boss it there, slower game and he could dictate games.

15 Mar 2018 09:41:29
Quick mention to the best player in our squad and probably only world class player we have, N'golo Kante was superb tonight, what a player, feels for him.

Agree6 0Disagree

Courtois is overrated and doesn't deserve Chelsea making him the highest paid goalkeeper.

Christensen is good but needs to be stronger (or heavier) cos he easily pushed off the ball and not strong on the challenge.

can be world's best if he shoots at the goal a bit more and reduce setting up the goals for players which he is better than. He lacks fighting spirit.

Chelsea should be looking for another young central midfielder with Fabregas' qualities that will replace Fabregas (I think his legs are almost gone) but the vision and creativity is still there.

Kante is very good as always. M. Alonso and Rudiger is good too.

15 Mar 2018 11:39:53
Why isn’t Willian getting any love, easily the best player along side Kante last night.

15 Mar 2018 12:56:57
Kiss kiss to Willian, he's lovely. Played with his heart and fought really hard till the end.

15 Mar 2018 13:15:20
Courtois' situation is particularly annoying cos there's another lovely goalkeeper at Chelsea (Caballero) whom has proven himself and made better saves. If I was Conte that is certain to go at the end of the season, I will bench Courtois and give Caballero more games.
The club should take a at the goalkeeping situation; maybe its best to let Courtois go to his family in Madrid and bring in another goalkeeper.
