Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Clayton Beerman to look back at an infuriating defeat away to Liverpool and ahead to a chance to redeem themselves against Wolves on Sunday.
In part one we look back at the horrible defeat to Liverpool in midweek. How crucial was the denial of two stone cold penalties to the outcome of the match? That said we were basically awful – outclassed, out thought and out fought and didn’t compete for more than about 15 minutes. The only bright spots were Petrovic again and Nkunku’s goal.
We are so far off it. The recruitment, ownership and players are simply not good enough but Poch is also culpable, but if we get rid of Poch who would we get now? So far has the club fallen, under Clearlake, from the standards at Chelsea we are accustomed to, most probably average English young managers or unknown European managers but no one of the elite level we are used to.
In part two we look ahead to Sunday’s match against Wolves kicking off with JK’s summary of the presser and Chidge’s team selection. But with Broja sent out on loan to Fulham who do we play up front and is it a good decision to reduce our striking options even further?
With Wolves 2 points behind us in 11th, this IS a mid table clash, but we are only 6 points off 6th place – can we begin to make up ground on Brighton, Newcastle, Man Utd and West Ham? After all they are as flakey as Chelsea.
Wolves are in good form but not in London or away from home; Chelsea hava a great track record against Wolves and are unbeaten at home since 1979. As ever it will no doubt depend on which Chelsea turns up? Will we get it right tactically? Will we be up for it? We wrap up the show with how we see it going and our predictions and another round of ‘They Played for Both’.
