Carroll is going to work on until he’s sent off

That’s the miss of the season, they won’t get a better chance to score than that.

Carrol is a throwback to the 70s/80s where teams just lumped it up to the big doofus up front. Commentators praising him up saying he was unplayable on his day where in truth he is just a big guy up front who can head a ball and rough defenders up. His scoring stats are shocking for a number 9.

Jesus, Dwight Gayle, you have to bury those.

Trying to shoot ourselves in the foot here.

Shite tactics from Bruce. He will be out on his ear once the owners come in and this seasons done.
He's done well. Just as well, if not better than 'master tactician' Benitez.

In hindsight, he'd probably have gone with different tactics in the first half, but they've been a lot better in the second, and if it weren't for Gayle's shithousery, they'd have made the game level.

I only saw the highlights of every FA-Cup match today therefore a question to the Chelsea fans: Were Mount, James and Gilmour so poor or what was the reason?
Yeah them 3 looked a bit off the pace - Leicester were pressing really effectively in the first half and the midfield was overrun. Kovacic more than anyone allowed Chelsea to get a grip on the game.

To be fair, Gilmour was being played more or less as a left sided 8, which doesn't seem to be his best role and he definitely struggled. Of the 3 Mount looked best but a bit leggy, which is understandable.

Thanks for the fast answer.......what was the problem with James?

He was carrying an injury into the break and his recovery has been poor - he looks a bit lost & potentially not fully trusting in his ankle. His cameo vs. Villa was truly atrocious.

Crystal Palace, versus Burnley, behind closed doors - must surely be the least appealing game in PL history tonight. It will probably end 4-3 or something, but it likely won’t be far off a record low in terms of tv audience. I’d rather watch a DIY show about paving driveways or something.

Not when you have Ward and Ayew in your fantasy team.
I'm all over it :lol:

Can someone start a thread about the fact we will play the Europa League after we already know whether we will have gotten top 4, or even top 5 with City dropping out?!!!!
