Well done hun. So is that how it goes??!!! Chelsea play well and it has a karma affect on you??!!!
Ey, up - what's this about? No Chelsea or Liverpool mentioned in about 5 posts? What's this place coming to..
(league cup game!)
no. i'm just remembering what happened last season when i got my hopes up
(league cup game!)
or the league game near the end of the season
don't remember that one
They fear the result on the 6th of November. Mind you, if they get a result they'd probably come out of the woodwork alright.
We lost a game we should not have lost against West Brom on Saturday. I feel our side played with a team spirit showing some great quality, but the overall thing is that we were punished for a lack of experience and maturity.
We did not take advantage of the chances we created and we gave goals away for fun. That is why we were not rewarded.
We took the lead through Philippe Senderos and with a bit more experience we could have avoided conceding their first goal. Maybe we would have won the game if we had gone in at half time 1-0 up.
We had plenty of chances to win the game and there was plenty of quality in the side, but the overall balance of experience and youth was not right.
Once again we came up against an inspired goalkeeper. Chris Kirkland had a great game because West Brom were very, very subdued I feel.
They didn't create a lot and did not have the ambition to come out in the second half. It was as if they were happy with 1-1 but we couldn't take advantage of this and in every department we lacked a bit of what makes the difference.
We now trail Chelsea by 14 points but at the moment I don't look at the gap because we have other worries.
We have eight or nine players out and most of them will miss the Sparta Prague game on Tuesday. Sol Campbell will not be back and Freddie Ljungberg will be out for three weeks with a hamstring injury.
On a more positive note, Gilberto will be back I hope and Robin van Persie might be available too.
Thanks for your support KuZ (Your the greatest).
Makes me weep! Truely does!
Thank you for making the suggestions prior to half time in the Bolton game which won us the match. We shall be contacting you shortly regarding your future managerial career at Chelsea.
In the mean time all the best,
