    Fair bet, they've picked up a bit and our defence is still a work in not much progress. Doidge is getting a goal a game though so we might nick a draw.

    bromley ...isn't as good as Lewisham.

    Rules are quite simple. Premier league clubs do what they want, lower league clubs get fined if they don't play enough first teamers! :D

    I'm gutted that we're still in it.:(

    we were , to be polite woeful against West Ham. No zip, terrible passing, lacked combativety in midfield and the few chances we did have were squandered. Utd lost, Liverpool drew and we managed to lose three points. Inept.

    A lot of huffing and puffing against what was a well organised defensive display from Brighton but we broke the deadlock. We are still missing chances and too reliant on Hazard for my liking.However it's going to be a good battle for second place .

    Used to be the case that you always expected a difficult game against Stoke .Under Pullis they were physically hard, uncompromising and you dreaded their set pieces.Under Hughes the last two years they had some particularly good attackers that when on form were a real threat.Today they were a half hearted shambles with Hughes looking as though he had seen it all before and had given up. First casuality of 2018 me thinks.

    Hughesy definitely gave up on today's game even before it started with his team selection. You can't really blame him with a more realistic winnable game on Monday against Newcastle coming up. What if they don't win that one though ??

    Enough about the Potters, we got Arsenal on Wed but I ain't sure if their season ends at the start or the end of every January? We shall see.

    Drinkwater had a good game, William seems to have hit better form and Rudiger looked good. Hazard and Fab rested today so we fingers crossed. Utd are in the doldrums and we are now second our highest position this season.Hopeful that we do some business in the transfer window.

    Two good results for us today with City and Arsenal dropping points. Add to that Utds slump due to "financial difficulties" (pmsl) and it's been a good end of year.

    Happy New Year Everyone

    That was painful. It was like watching us a couple of years back when only Willian was trying. Kenedy is way below par and an idiot to boot. Get rid of him.

    Only good points were a spark of life from Musonda and Sterling towards the end and Conte being proved right about sideshows
    reliability.

    I thought that young Norwich player looked good tho, Murphy. Sharp, intelligent, committed. Hope you were watching Roman.

    Nah long way off that from the fans at least. I think Conte will be in a stronger position now to argue about squad depth.

    As we're on the subject I'm not overly convinced about the Barkley signing but hope to be proved wrong. Having said that I'm still waiting to be convinced that Bakayoko was vfm :hmm:

    The brief contributions of Masunda and Sterling were the only highlights in the game for me.The rest were far too tentative and halhearted.I liked Kennedy when he first arrived he was more active fearless and would take on players hes more disciplined now but doesnt do much.

    Charly Musonda scored twice for Chelsea Academy as they beat Portsmouth 2-1 to reach the quarter-finals of the Checkatrade Trophy.

    Great game in the end shame it got soured by a bit of bad refereeing even with VAR to help him.
    I just looked at a survey (BBC I think) and it was equal 29% for 'Not sure about VAR " and 'waste of time".

    If you asked me before the pens I would have screamed waste of time. After the pens I'm a bit more " Not sure" at the moment. I can't see VAR stopping "show" refs and inept refs such as Clattenberg and Mariner from ruining games. Graham Scott last night was definitely in the inept group.

    Pleased about Kenedy though, he finally showed a bit of maturity and commitment. Dunno about him getting motm tho, for me Willian, as always, looked head and shoulders above everyone on the field. Norwich too had a couple of decent players out there last night, Murphy and Madison in particular.

    A nice welcome for Rafa awaits.
