Any of the Ed's can I ask, I've just read that roman has invested £165m into chelsea, how does this work exactly as FFP, though rich owners couldn't just stick there own money into a club and had to be self sufficient, or does he just wipe / pay of debt to himself? And also your opinion on roman as an owner?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea where that amount comes from.}

More like £1.65bn Matt.

Jake Cohen who writes about club finances and misconceptions etc etc said roman injected another £165m into the club without taking a single penny out. Went sure how it worked. Never mind, opinion on him as an owner ed?

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea who he is, what he is referring to, what period was involved nor what the money was used for. So I would discard what he says without explanation - and certainly any monies have not been related to any potential FFP related issues. Mr Abramovich has been an exceptionally good owner after more than 16 years with the club - an ownership period longer than most leading sides in Europe. He supported the purchase of players in the early days based on good advice to suit the needs of coaches and has continued to be involved on a regular basis with coaches, board members and some players. He has rarely got involved in any matters involving the likes of FIFA and UEFA but has been key in ensuring racism is being addressed. He has put money in to the leading UK academy and supported younger players. And it goes on.}

After that blistering start when we could, and should, have put the game to bed expect we all thought we ended up fortunate to get a point.

Given the 120 mins in Instanbul in mid-week, our cause might have been helped by earlier substitutions - at half time or soon after, when from dominating midfield/ out wide we lost control. Several players, including Pedro, Pulisic and Mount who were all excellent early on with high press, seemed understandably perhaps to run out of steam a bit. Dave was up and down, has certainly dropped off in early games from stellar defender of a couple of seasons ago, but perhaps will bounce back. Zouma better, Jorginho and Kante had another good game (Kante better not get injured, he almost single- handedly kept us in it at time in 2nd half! )

Anyway, as said after the United game, my expectations for this season were modest. Has to be mainly about being patient and supporting Lamps and the team in what will be a tough period. Focus has to be largely on building for the future, gradual improvement perhaps along lines of LFC over 3 seasons under Klopp (though would of course be great if it happens sooner! ) .

Just home from the match and I usually give my views after I've had time to reflect with some degree of balance but my early thoughts are as follows:-

a) We could and should have scored three or maybe four goals in the first 25mins.

b) I thought Emerson, Zouma, Christensen, Jorginho and Kante were good. Mount was ok but his influence got less and less as the game progressed.

c) I was disappointed with the teams shape and I was also disappointed Lamps took so long to make changes.

d) Willian is a total mystery to me! He came on to give us a lift and not for the first time looked lethargic at best. How is ever allowed to take a corner is beyond comprehension.

e) Tammy is a much better player for us than Giroud.

Sorry posters and one more!

f) I’m not a fan of Zonal marking!

19 Aug 2019 11:02:24
Agree and disagree, TomB. Zonal marking / no one on the posts - I hate it - it allows opponents to get a run on you (see Leicester's goal) . But, once again, I have to disagree about Jorginho. In the 2nd half we were overrun - the space and time that Leicester had in front of our back 4 was unbelievable - and this is down to Jorginho not being able to defend. Once again, we are playing the best defensive midfielder in the World out of position simply to accommodate Jorginho because a 60 million pound player can only play in 1 position! Lamps has to bite the bullet, move Kante to his best position, and drop Jorginho.
Ps thought Zouma was immense and agree that Tammy will come good.

19 Aug 2019 14:58:00
Jorginho has been one of our best players this season and except for a few games last season he was amazing!

20 Aug 2019 09:50:01
TomB, does the 'B' stand for Brother as in Jorginho's brother?!

20 Aug 2019 10:39:46
As always just saying it as I see it. Some people just don’t like certain players and it never matters how that player performs.

The B stands for my very Italian family name!

I'll be at the Norwich game next week, hope we get a result there.! Never ever thought I'd be say that. I think Pukki will be looking forward to our defence but theirs could actually be a little poorer than ours.
I think a season like this is what Chelsea need to reset and start again. We lacked good young player investment and didn't bring our youth through.
This season will be good for everyone, the club and the fans.

Had the pleasure of going to The Fat Cat and Canary near Carrow Road. Well worth a visit PT1970.

As a Norwich resident I know the place well. I will probably be one of the only Norwich residents wanting a Chelsea win that day, fingers crossed we will get one.

18 Aug 2019 18:22:06
Could of gone in at half time 4-0 up. Finished with it luckily only conceding the one,

Game of two halves, should’ve killed the game off first half but couldn’t. Second half we were poor and Willian and Kovacic were awful when they came on, so sloppy. Promising signs but we need to start getting results.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just wanted to say emerson is a very good left back, improving game by game, jorginho looks like a different player under Frank, the play we though we was getting.

The young boys aswell bringing a freshness on the pitch we haven't had for a long time.
