    While in public i would blame the VAR inconsistency. in private i have to admit that our players had been naive in trying to play short passess in our own box. it was a stupid idea at best. i have to say, we need to pray Kante to return on time since Jorginho will be out. that Penalty had been in his mind when he was given that yellow.

    Another masterstroke signing in kovacic which i never saw coming. when we signed him, i was in the camp that thought it was pointless in sining him him. now he is justify every penny of that £40m that was said that we have paid. or say €40m that some news outlets were reporting at the time. the way he was driving our midfield today was out of this world. he even earned Frank’s praise.

    Frank Lampard singles out ‘nightmare’ Mateo Kovacic for special praise after Watford win

    Foster was MOM imo without him it could have been 5 or 6.

    Agree with you CM we bought the penalty if it was a penalty 😊 on ourselves with all that silly short passing in the penalty area. Frank needs to have a word as you rightly say CM Kovacic was £40m well spent.

    3rd place now we’ll be getting a nose bleed soon.😊

    Shame we couldn’t have got a bit closer to the top 2.

    That Kepa he’s rubbish!Lol.😊

    Silly booking for Jorginho but on the positive side at least he’s available for the City game.

    You guys know I have limited knowledge of Chelsea. It does sound though like Sarri held you lads back. It sounds like he might even have held back the one player who he kinda based his football on. You lads are starting to change your minds about players. I’ll tell you, that’s a great sign for a manager. I remember seeing many pliverpool players stepping up a level and keeping it, under Klopp. Before Lallana got injured, he was absolutely amazing under Klopp. This is a kinda controversial statement with some who never rated him but they are wrong.

    What you have witnessed is the most successful transfer windows ye’ve had in over 5 years.

    CM Kovacic is a good player and yes he is playing well that’s why he was at the biggest club in the world Real Madrid, why then did they let him go? It’s obvious he still has no finish to his game, shooting or a killer assist. Maybe he will get that at some point but when?

    That Jorginho booking was contrived to clear the deck and be on board for City. Watch the last 10 minutes again and, in particular, Jorginho. It was a case of if at first you don’t succeed then try, try again.

    CM if Kante and Jorginho are available then Kovacic will be a permanent sub except for the odd game

    At this minute, Kovacic is there to stay. while it will be strange to say this. but i don’t think if Kante will walk back straight in to the team. Kovacic has been playing level not seen before. personally i don’t give monkeys whether he scores or not. but as long as wins the midfield battle, i’m content with his performances so far and he is the main reason why Jorginho isn’t exposed so far this season, and why our attacking players are thriving so much, because of his runs from the deep and his pace, he compliments Jorginho very well and has a good understanding with him.

    I said at the start of the season Chelsea were my Smokey to go well this season & even after a slowish sort of a start I thought they’d come good. Must say it’s still only relatively early but I didn’t expect them to be going so well this early but I always had a gut feeling they’d get top 4. If they are going this well with a pretty young side imagine how they’ll go when they can but again, with money @ a good young squad I expect them to be right up there in the coming seasons.

    oz… Trouble is adding to the squad… its going to take some scouting to get it right. the team emerging has played very well minus a headless defence at times, or poor decision making as seen in the last ten yesterday… Cant will aid that, ruddier too, the Crown Jewels to our current set up is Ruben Loftus cheek who could become a titan if he stays fit. Experience from this campaign will add up into next… there are currently few sides with the buzzing ability of CFC at present. Sadly, this team has come too late for Willian who arrived five years to soon on the planet. Reckon he’s going to have a good twilight to his CFC career. its a team of absolute ballers emerging.

    If you look at my prediction for where Chelsea would finish this season, you’d see that as things stand, I was way off. I’m actually glad to be wrong (so far) as I’d like Lampard to be a managerial success. The guy is a class act.

    I think many are not giving the credit he deserves, but Zouma has been outstanding in the last few weeks. and should he sustain this form and the partnership he has formed with Tomori. i think it will be difficult for Rudiger and Christensen to regain their positions. and i can’t believe that i would say this, given that Rudiger in particular has been our best defender also. also credit to Azpilicueta who has turned the corner in his season. he has returned to form. but part of that stems from the fact that Willian who tracks back is now giving him the protected he lacked at the start of the season.
