I don't understand why some fans think this season is going to be anything other than a disaster. Our best player has gone and we can't replace him, and we're about to probably appoint someone with one year of good but hardly exceptional managerial experience. The idea that Lampard is going to galvanise a dressing room full of mercenaries who have downed tools for better managers in the past doesn't wash with me. Despite it making complete sense, this won't be viewed as a free pass season with the board, so if Lampard finishes 8th, he's probably still going to get fired. 

That issue of this season not being a free pass negates the idea that we'll just integrate 5 youth players next season and it will all be hunky-dory. Even if we do, it isn't Football Manager, and putting in a bunch of prospects who have never played against bigger opposition than 2018/19 Villa while attempting to finish 4th seems completely unrealistic. We also can't sign anyone on the planet apart from Matteo Kovacic and two of the brightest young stars who have already been integrated (RLC and CHO) have had terrible injuries. Our forwards blow and we're relying on Tammy Abraham being ready to lead the line at Champions League level. Maybe some of this will pan out, perhaps Reece James is Philip Lahm mk2 and Frank Lampard is Guardiola mk2, but I think we finish 6th-7th, Lampard gets fired for Allegri next year and we go back to pissing money up the wall haphazardly. 

This post hasn't aged well.

I dunno, i can still see them sacking Lampard, appointing Allegri and spunking money. It'd be a shame because it's the most interesting Chelsea team since Mourinho's first go round.

It was mental in the Summer how so many people had us, not just behind Arsenal and (lol) Moyeskjaer's United, but unable to even dream of competing with them! I have no idea what squads they were looking at? I was very sceptical about our firepower, especially after Tammy took the #9, which is normally tantamount to spending your pre-season training on an Indian burial ground, but beyond that we clearly had at worst a well functioning team. I think the last few months of Sarri's system (that needed Hazard, CHO and RLC to brute-force chances to create anything) unfairly influenced people.

I still fucking hate Chelsea (Fucking hate Chelsea fucking hate Chelseeeeaaaa), but it’s subsided so much that I quite enjoy watching them these days and last nights game was pure BANTZ and I was quite pleased they clawed that back.

Still a bunch of slags though.

I said a thousand times that the Chelsea job this season is fascinating and that they'd do a lot better than people are expecting. It must be exciting as a fan seeing a club legend at the helm, playing decent football and giving countless opportunities to young players. Not that you deserve good things, though. 

Meanwhile, we made 500+ passes against some Portuguese farmers today and only one of them was into their area. EMERYBALL~

So great to see Son bounce back with two goals tonight after his traumatic visit to Goodison on Sunday and what a thrill it'll be seeing him play this weekend getting over it further, meanwhile that nasty Andre Gomes will have to make do with sitting at home with his ankle in a cast thinking about how much he upset the guy last weekend

Football would be brilliant if it wasn't for the supporters.

Nothing of significance happened during the black out that we need to talk about. 

Really, I thought this week in football had been quite a 'Special One'?

But you have SO much in common.

I'm loving living the life of a 1990's United fan. Kloppage time indeed! Still think we'll unravel a bit in December.

OGS seems to be doing just enough to keep him in a job without ever really threatening to be good. They need to be ruthless and get Poch before he ends up abroad or at Everton, who are fucked.

I love football.

I love how Mourinho has turned full baby face, which should lead to about 12 months of fun before a heel turn around Christmas 2020.

Man, last week was eventful wasn't it? Imagine sacking one of the best young progressive managers in European football and replacing him with that poisonous prick. He's obviously going to help them finish higher than they currently are (I think top 4 will still be a tall order), but Jose and Levy is a recipe for disaster. He's going to bully a couple of their youngsters into depression on the way to leaving the club in flames a couple of years down the line. 

Meanwhile, Unai Emery still has a fucking job.
