    Exactly!

    I can't imagine anyone watching that video and legitimately thinking 'yeah, he was creative!'.

    He hit some hopeful long balls in which the defender/keeper was favourite 95% of the time or the person on the end of it had a crappy angle to deal with. Ok on one or two situations the attacker should do better but to consistently get assists you need to be putting the forward in situations where the odds favour him, Jorginho hasn't done that at all with those passes. They're hard to take down and get a shot off.

    Blaming Chelsea's attackers is very convenient, but falls apart a bit when his midfield partners (not all of whom are creative at all) all out assisted him, despite the fact he played most of their games.

    Chelsea fans should be very excited about next season. They've a genuine chance of bedding in RlC, CHO, Mason Mount, Zouma, Reece James in the first team along with Ampadu and perhaps Tammy Abraham. I'm not convinced about Tammy but I'm sure the rest of the players will become quality players in the future. Lampard is a gamble but it's good to see them try this approach and perhaps use their academy for one.

    What ever happened to Matt Miazga? He was on loan twice wasn't he and he is touted as a very good CB form the U.S.

    Agree but I dont see them improving to the point of challenging City and Liverpool. I think battling it out with Spurs, us and Arsenal for third and fourth.

    Petr Cech announced as Technical Advisor. Based on the club description he's incharge of integrating youth and creating a link with them and the senior team, will also advise Marina/Board on player and performance matters he also overseas all support departments. So not a director of football like at Juve or Ajax but our business side(Marina) now has an experience ex-player advising her on all footballing stuff.

    Cech is an Abramovich favourite, hence him sanctioning his Arsenal move over the head and against the will of Mourinho... Seems like a sensible decision to me and he could be a very good team with Marina.

    Rumours of Makalele coming back in some sort of non-coaching role as well.

    Cech in, Lampard and Makelele possible. Seems like Chelsea are getting the band back together.

    Cech always felt like a Chelsea player on loan at Arsenal. He's back in his natural habitat

    There’s 38 games to go, we lost our best player, we lost our manager, we have a transfer ban and we’re wearing sunglasses.

    Hit it!

    It's pretty liberating. I've got zero expectations.

    Same here, it should be good fun. It’s nice not to have title pressure sometimes.
