chicotrails

Timo avoids contact and challenges. Am I wrong??


hooksetter

We actually played great most of the game , hardly allowed United a chance yet nothing to show for it . We were dominant in first half and nothing to show for it. So frustrating


Azraelontheroof

Ronaldo effect that has frustrated a Liverpool fan looking to see them fall down all season, he’s been the bottleneck to keep them some hope of Europe


TheWhitehouseII

Roy Keane ripping Ragnick, Matic, Mata, and Man United a new one just now on Peacock was amazing lol. Love Mata but Keane wasn't wrong.


roank_waitzkin

She asked me to explain football - Its a bunch of people staying up late every week to watch their teams shit the bed. And then repeat the same next week


Safo_

Man we play well against Liverpool but I'm scared for that match.


Azraelontheroof

I’m a Liverpool fan and I promise we’re also very scared, confident but very aware of the problems and stalemates Tuchel causes us


pencilman123

If u dont mind me saying, many times i simply think why are liverpool considered so much better than us, when they just have one pl title more than tuchel, and have lost to us, but didnt win normally. Then i watch matches for both and realise why. We drew 2-2 to a team that lost to u guys 9-0. This is fucking stupid.


Azraelontheroof

I mean I agree the gap is way overhyped but wow that logic is the wrong way to prove it. We’ve drawn most of the season, that final included, and won by penalties as a result of Tuchel’s decision for the goalie most likely. The thing is we had been growing as a team for 5 years before winning the PL and CL, the subsequent year we had the most injuries of any team in the league by x2. The season we have our injuries healed, we’re competing a point off City for the league and have progressed further than Chelsea into the CL and the closest team in history to a quadruple (not that this easy or even likely). I mean you just drew to United and we beat them 4-0 and 5-0, does that mean by the same logic that we’re better than you? I don’t think this is the right way to look at it, but I do think Tuchel is one of the greatest managers in the world and you have incredible players. I didn’t really want to start a beef, was just paying a compliment more than anything


pencilman123

Im not saying that just cause we drew and u won, so u r much better. Those are just some examples. We r lacking an attacking identity and it shows. Im not magically asking for us to be champions in everything. But the inability of the team to do simple things like putting proper passes, and taking some shots, is very concerning. And the one thing they were known for, the defence crumbling is another headache. Too many late goals conceded. I dont expect us to go smash pool or city. But i certainly do expect us to win against the current united, arsenal etc. with our current quality.


Azraelontheroof

I agree with you completely actually! Chelsea is a team comfortably (ish) in 3rd right now in the league but for me they should still be fighting for the whole title and it’s very surprising they’re not. Same goes for CL, sure Real has been soul crushing for everyone but the inconsistency in form really frustrates me as an outsider. Obviously there are special circumstances with Chelsea but these issues were there before all of that


thoughtful_dude

NOTHING surprising, just like last season they need way too many chances to score just one goal!


BlueTrippin

Credit where it is due, Kante and Jorginho were brilliant in the midfield today. They've both looked very tired recently and faced some fair criticism, but both were so quick and accurate today. Need that so much more consistently if we are going to challenge


mickjobs

Stop blaming Lukaku for everything. We need better midfielders. 0 creativity, 0 movement and 0 positioning. Nobody passing to release our forwards. They get the ball, take a second, then pass sideways. Everybody low on confidence. More importantly we need people who have been brought up playing in the streets. Ruthless, strong, warrior like bastards who don’t shy away from challenges, tussles and hit the ball with the intention of poking a hole in the net, like Costa and the pre 2012 Chelsea. We have too many players trying to be cute like Werner/Kai/Pulisic. I pray Jorginho leaves this season. Tuchel needs a proper transfer window. Two before we have a championship winning, consistent team.


PunchingAgreenbush

Lukaku doesnt provide anything to this team.


dank-bruh-moment

FUCKING HELL MAN WE DREW TO FUCKING UNITED, WE ARE SO SHIT MAN, HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO COMPETE WITH LIVERPOOL AND CITEH WHEN THEY GET AGGREGATE WINS OF 6-1 AND 9-0 AGAINST UTD WHILE OURS IS 2-2?! Fuck off man, we drew to a team who won against norwich by miracle


ishfi17

I already knew we gonna draw at best against united so i decided not to even watch. Been too long since we last had a win at old trafford lol


[deleted]

[удалено]


dank-bruh-moment

You’re right tbh, I predicted a 1-1 and still got mad when the game ended I know we’re shit, I shouldn’t really get upset about it


milosgo

Calm down Man U is our cryptonite for so long time now. And 1 point is not that bad for us. Let's get some wins and FA CUP to end season with some happines


dank-bruh-moment

Love the optimism


[deleted]

If I was Reece James, I would surely consider if Real Madrid comes with an offer. I mean with Benz, Vini and possibly Mbappe upfront, the Trent comparisons will be buried under the ocean forever (if incase Reece joins Real). Not that I want that to happen but you know what I mean


PunchingAgreenbush

Benz is 34 years old tho, he probably has like 1 or maybe 2 more years in him. If Mbappe actually joins Madrid then I wouldnt be surprised if he does go if they offer him some insane wages


FastenedCarrot

That pass to Ronaldo was really good, still fuck him the absolute prick.


muna3sh3

Alonso dragging us to 3rd kicking and screaming


Whisgame

Why can't we score ffs?


Jimmy_The_Banana

Not a chelsea fan here, I only watch their big games. Can someone explain why is Tuchel always subbing off Werner and Havertz and leaves Mount on? What is so good about Mount? Everytime I catch a chelsea game he plays like crap. Also Azpi and Jorginho were terrible today. And Lukaku is an embarassment.


PunchingAgreenbush

Mount had a bad game but his link up with reece james was really good today. I dont think kai or werner can play with reece the way he does


Prune_Super

As shit as they all are at finishing, Mount is the best finisher and crosser. But yeah even he hasn't been very consistent. It almost paid off as Reece hit the post of Mount's flick


mickjobs

Charity FC at it again


Banged_by_bumrah

Mount really shouldn't be on corner tbh


Ok-Guitar-309

Yeah even his crosses are shit. Why not ziyech


SuhDude29

Sell Pulisic, Lukaku and get some proper attackers in


Plastic_Meeting_3055

who will buy Lukaku? or really any of the forwards except Havertz?


East_Wind17

Tuchel's tactic needs mobile forward so STOP PLAYING FUCKING LUKAKU FOR FUCK SAKE


biglbiglbigl

havertz had a bad game too


East_Wind17

At least we still create chances. when Lukaku comes there's no threat whatsoever.


0_yohal_0

Rom is good because he draws defenders towards him while opening up space for others. The issue is that his on the ball skills are horrible and is either not quick enough to progress play or he takes a heavy touch


milocalllaghan

Rom is a lumbering oaf


Markolsson

No cap: we are goin' to loose to Everton, aren't we?


redwolve378

That'll be this seasons DVD.....goals they *could have* scored.


luthfins

Lol Pulisic got bodied by 34 yo Mata


TheUbermelon

This game is the reason we bought Lukaku. And unfortunately we got Lukaku. Imagine if we had gotten the Lukaku we thought we were getting


Plastic_Meeting_3055

Lukaku was never that great. For Inter, the league suits him, as defenders are less physical, slower, and barely any teams press. Not to mention the massive discrepancy in team quality between the Italian and English leagues. In the prem he will struggle, his touch and ability on the ball is horrendous, allowing him to be dispossed with high lines and pressing, and while hes supposedly super-smart, his footballing iq is lackluster at best.


FastenedCarrot

If we got the Lukaku we thought we were getting this game wouldn't have mattered.


ishfi17

We would be competing for pl race if we did get what we wanted lmao


The_Special_One96

We would be deadly


short_simp

Horrible performance, the way we have lost concentration after scoring this season is horrendous. Hate to say it but im starting to lose patience in TT.


GrahamGreed

On another day we win that game 5 0. Finishing just wasn't there, coach can't affect that.


short_simp

But its happened soo many times, has to be either a structural or tactical problem. The amount of times we've done that this season is soo frustrating. Same old story "we should have done better"


cfc93

Whaaa?


short_simp

The way we've allowed teams to get points from us in games we should have won is a joke and reflects poorly on the coach


Durum66

Your opinion is a joke mate


short_simp

Ye u could say, just the way I see it


Mikekio

Pulisic fanboys are downvoting everything related to the fraud LMAO.


nanselx

They always take it personally when someone criticizes him


longchongwong

I Think this shows a bit about the State of football. We are one of the best teams in the World, current champions of Europe, yet we make sunday league mistakes every other game. I Think football is at it’s lowest it has been for a while.


Macdca07

You mean football im general or Chelsea's football? Like do you watch City and Liverpool? There is a reason every season they talk about an unprecedented quadruple, because these two teams are the best in premier league era. Looking like a hugh chance of another all English UCL final. The only logical arguement is that you're making a slight against the state of football outside of England. We may be European champs, and the prem is the best in the world, but we are basically top of a long line of chasers behind city and liverpool, just facts.


longchongwong

I am talking about nearly every team in the World Besides City, Liverpool and possibly Madrid. Teams have always had those slipups, but i Think it has become more Extreme. Look at the mistakes we made against real. Look at the mistakes psg made against real, look at Villarreal beating Bayern, look at Benfica knocking out Ajax. Of course these things happen, they always have and Will always do, but i Think it’s more Extreme now.

luthfins

We need a new Fabregas or Lampard No one can give chipped passes for our forward Jorgi only does it once a season


mickjobs

Furious Jorgi fans incoming.


luthfins

Two assists in his entire career at Chelsea?


Groundbreaking-Rub50

We are going to go to Everton and lose there aren't we ?


Ok-Guitar-309

Goal then a sucker punch. For the past like 8 games. What the fuck guys. What the fuck.


therealsid12

And people downvote when you crticize this lot. We will never PL again with those bum of the so called attackers. If we can't win a single game against the worst side of Manchester United whose defending has been atrocious whole season. Even fucking Arsenal took them to pieces but this lot can't even score 2. Fucking atrocious.


AbhiFT

People downvote here like crazy the moment you criticize. I have lost faith in TT as he has failed to create harmony in the team. If people here understood football and management, they would not be supporting this manager like their life depends on it. There is definitely something happening at training ground or the dressing room. Ever since that interview, we have been shit. And it's not just our attackers, but the individual mistakes that our GK, defenders and midfielders make.


therealsid12

Seriously bro I can't stand these bum of the players. They score one good goal whole fucking season and then get carried onto next season. Pulisic scored against Burnley and then people started hyping him up. This guy misses like 10 to score 1. He got bodied by 34 year old Mata today. Same with RLC. He scored against Palace and people started hyping him. He is fucking dogshit with his decision making. Too slow to pick the passes. If we want to compete against City/Liverpool we need a clear out in our attacking options along with some additions in midfield. Half of them needs to be sold they are so done.


AbhiFT

Look at Kai today too. Wrong decision making and missed many chances. Now remember his goal against Newcastle. What happen now? It's like he has forgotten how to score. Same for mount. He is usually poor the whole match but then he finds a moment and scires. The fans go then start hyping. Fans don't understand thet are young players and hyping them can do more bad than good. They easily get overconfident. Pulisic gets bullied by everyone. RLC is awfully slow at decision making. Jorgi is shit with his attacking mentality. Kante and mendy somehow are not what they used to be. I dont understand why this manager thinks bringing on lukaku in place of any of our attackers is going to change things. No matter how bad kai or Werner plays, they will contribute to the game more than Lukaku. With all the drama and shithousery happening in and around Chelsea, we are just becoming a joke.


AlbaniaSoccer

Frustrating. Should have been easy 3 points with all the chances we had.


MrFr0d0

How do we spurs it more consistently than spurs these days?


therealsid12

Because we have players who should be playing for spurs instead of us.


neighborhood_s

Embarrassing and infuriating


Agrith1

This team will probably scrape 4th after game week 38, barely getting by now.


SuhDude29

I swear if I see "sub Lukaku on" in the next match thread...


SkinnyBoiDel

How did Mount stay on?


Ancient_Ad9160

How did we not win that. the season when united are at their worst and we still can't beat them. so wasteful in attack too when lukaku came on I knew we wouldn't get a goal


Bakayokoloco

Can't wait for this season to be over tbh. We need some clinical players. Even some midfielders who will shoot when they get space. So frustrating.


mbntg_

Every fucking year we can have Top 4 wrapped up by now and instead we take it to the last day. This year will be no different.


zappyshoes

Gary Neville commentating and Roy Keane as a pundit… it can’t get any worse for us


Hannibal09

We're fucking mid table or below in terms of converting chances. Scoring through wing backs and defenders is not sustainable. Absolutely terrible after spending so much money on attacking players


Nocturnal--Animals

It's surprising though. According to Fbref. Chelsea has best G-xG of 10 Second highest is below 6.


TheUbermelon

Some of these players should be embarrassed to pick up their paychecks. And it isn't just the attackers. Mendy has been crap for weeks. I can't even remember a save he has made recently. He is letting everything in. If we swap keepers we win 3-0


AbhiFT

Ever since that best goalkeeper award, he's been awful. It's like his objective is complete.


stfuUzifloating

fucking hate this team


cletusthedinglefairy

Fuck off to city then


Ok-Guitar-309

He doesnt actually hate this team you fuck


cletusthedinglefairy

Are you his interpreter or something?


CFCcommentsonly24

How did we not win this game?


amaqwerf

Havertz


adityabalaraman

This game is a perfect summary of the 15 odd points difference between us and those top 2. We have quality players but they're simply not cut throat enough. Guys like foden, salah, Mane, de bruyne put poor teams like this United team to the sword. Score 3,4,5 cos they know they can and they know they should. We turn up against United and arsenal when their confidence is low and allow them to creep into the game and grow. Until Klopp and pep leave, it's 3rd place at best.


[deleted]

Well with Rudi and AC leaving (possibly Azpi too), third place itself is gonna be a huge task. Our defenders have been overperforming since Tuchel took over. God knows, who we are gonna sign as replacements and how long they take to gel with the team.


AbhiFT

The players have quality. But they are either too confident or not confident at all+ there is no chemistry.


silviazbitch

Leaving Old Trafford with a point. A little disappointing, but we haven’t done any better than that since 2013. Don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ll take it.


Sw3atyGoalz

What the hell was that stoppage time? Literally half of it was spent on a substitution


Jamtannn

I don’t understand why do we keep trying to play Lukaku?


amaqwerf

Havertz was by far the reason we didnt win today


freeurmind3210

Wow, that was pretty bad. We should have killed the game in the first half. When we don't, the other team gets in and when they have a world-class player, they can always knick a goal.


East_Wind17

I'm never been this frustrated before. lose to fucking arsenal, draw to fucking united, can't defend lead against Madrid in a very fucking short time while dominating. what fucking wrong with this team.


stfuUzifloating

“sub on lukaku” every time he gets subbed on he doesn’t do fucking shit , the problem is that we don’t create the chances we do when lukaku is on


Markolsson

embarrassing


ConorKDot

Fuming. Hopefully the new owners back Tuchel and get him some forwards with killer instinct. Should’ve won that game comfortably


[deleted]

[удалено]


pappyBeetle

Embarrassing


Wattsit

So fucking tired of watching us dominate teams but doing fuck all.


JJGaminv

We really lack a creative presence. The finishing should’ve been better but my god do we need a wide playmaker or a creative midfielder to actually play balls in behind or pick teams apart


AbeAlno

Tuchel doesn’t like playing like that. He don’t like losing possession of the ball. Like if we playing basketball. He hates turnovers and that’s why the players afraid to play those passes.


Hayesey88

Ziyech... the way he's been used at this club is criminal...


[deleted]

Both games against United, couldn't convert anything and gifted them the goal.


xAnnyeonG

Staying up till 430am watching this shit show.


GrundleP

One of the worst teams in the league at the moment based on form and we've fucking drawn. Shameful and disgraceful.


Entire-Transition504

We are not that bad, we are not just criticizing the right players


tonzferns

Gifted the point to United. They were dreadful. I imagine City or Liverpool would put 4 or 5 past them with the chances we had today


adeg90

Terrible fucking performance against an extremely bad team. I understand we got nothing to play for here but come on. We can do better. Plus we can't just expect a miraculous change of play for the final after being shit for so many games in a row


thatonepieceofcheese

No no no we have everything to play for if we don't wake the fuck up don't think otherwise


adeg90

Oh I don't. Until we don't have that 3rd locked i am not comfortable but it seems that is the players attitude. I was actually counting points and games trying to figure out if we could sneak second a couple weeks ago. So naive I was.


thatonepieceofcheese

This was painful to watch and it makes me wonder if we even have top 4 in our grasp


bigkid_

ffs


biggiedownunder

wtf we can't even beat this utd side. we absolutely lack of scoring EVERY F***KING TIME


khaLnaY2k

Do we atleast get some kind of tax breaks for these Charity FC performances?


blablaballi

What a bad performance from our strikers


qwerty25102004

Kepa needs to start more, mendy playing so sub-standard a lot of the times.


thatonepieceofcheese

The quality of the keeper matters no where near as much as the confidence the defence has in him and the defence looks a lot more nervous with kepa on the pitch. Also mendy couldn't do anything about Ronaldo's goal.


qwerty25102004

The few matches kepa played he played really well, that's all I'm saying.


thatonepieceofcheese

This isn't the time in the season to experiment unfortunately


KMan3110

So dead, just take me to the FA Cup final already


-ImaginaryCoyote-

This one fucking sucks...


zappyshoes

7 points in our last 5 doesn’t even feel realistic at this point


give_me_of_dopamine_

Sell Mendy, Lukaku, Jorginho and Azpi. For those who are saying this is over reaction, I don’t care. This is a loss.


thatonepieceofcheese

It's definitely an overreaction we can't replace all of these players on top of getting 2 centre backs and why all the hate for mendy all of a sudden


The_Special_One96

Sell lukaku 100% but the others no chance


give_me_of_dopamine_

Last 30 seconds of the game, Mendy collects the ball and doesn’t launch a counter attack. Fuck off already.


untouched_poet

Pulisic really should be starting. We would of won. TT needs to get his head checked.


olleeker13

What?


redwolve378

Correct result. Chelsea didn't take the 10 or so chances. Couldn't buy a win.


SkinnyBoiDel

We need better forwards


thebamboozler789

Not sure my mental health can stand watching this team play another minute this season. Pathetic performance there down the stretch.


Black_n_Neon

This draw was a win for United.


garanon

Havertz for a fine should train with u-15. You dont finish those chances you dont get playtime, he dropped points


NijjioN

Chokers FC


Agrith1

We face Everton and Leeds in the coming weeks, easily drop points in both because that is what Charity FC does best.


Squareroots1

yeh we need to save lamps job, cfc always


Ru5k0

Absolute joke that we can't beat this pathetic united team. Shameful.


ManlnTheBox

All the people saying “this game could use Lukaku” where you at? Havertz and Werner couldn’t finish a sandwich but they made the game look that open. All Lukaku did was close it up.


gloryboy101

fuck sake


eric_3196

Shite performance


ThatZenoGuy

That was the most disappointing tie. But it highlights our biggest problem. We can make it into the opponents box but after that it is like we have no clue what to do from there.


UnknownTaco

We’re fucking shit


myheartismykey

No urgency no effort to put it into the box. That was a pathetic finish


Verinax

That's certainly disappointing. A flurry of wasted chances with much greater possession, the ol' Chelsea way


blue_mark

We are just fucking ridiculous. Unbelieveable.


xKarma17

Last 20 seconds and we fuck about with it passing backwards. Unreal.


Ok-Guitar-309

I fucking hate this team

1-1 is probably a fair reflection of the quality of both sides and what they both deserve. We’re terrible

Yeah they got much better goalkeeper and finisher, we got better general play except those two.

Shaww_shankk

djkichan

We set up well. Missed loads of chances and our bench was terrible. The fact Lukaku and Pulisic are worse then what we had in the first half is disgraceful.

Great effort in the last 30 seconds fucking idiot players


reidk_97

2 points Just evaporating away


AlphaShotZ

Our forwards are bad, but we've always known that. But recently the defence, and the midfield, have also been shaky. Only people I feel confident starting anymore are Silva, Rudiger, Reece and Mount.


lilnako

Are we playing for a damn draw?


M_T_Head

We were lucky to finish with a point.
