How in the flying fuck are we 4th

Bet your house on Everton winning lol

grrmjkr

so like last season


Aggravating_Meme

I'd say last year was worse. The football that was played then was a crime against humanity


Sw3atyGoalz

The teams were also better and couldn’t really use injuries as an excuse


BigReeceJames

It's no different this year. I think the clearest evidence of it is the abysmal showing in the champions league from the premier league teams this year.


jugol

> maybe even 3rd To be honest Leicester have been in the choke party since the turn of the year


mrchuan

Best of the rest!


HugeVampireSquid

It’s hysterical really, just loads of flawed inconsistent teams giving flashes of hope then...BAM!


EnergetikNA

we had such a big lead over United/Spurs and now we're all within 4 points (with both United/Spurs yet to play)


ZonedV2

Yeah if you lose and we win we go 4th on goal difference, so you know Everton are going to beat us tomorrow


EnergetikNA

Everton under Ancelotti are pretty scary. Away game too, gonna be tough for sure. Tottenham have Wolves too, we could get lucky as usual lol


[deleted]

[удалено]


hooskies

Absolutely right. We’ve seen how poorly they’ve done in Europe the past few years


TheNarrator23

As soon as Leicester dropped points, I knew we would as well. It's like we don't want to catch up to them. They have 12 points in 12 games and we're still 6 points behind them. We should worry about even getting in the EL at this point, if we keep bottling games like this.


pappabrun

You guys dropping points also means that United wont win tomorrow


petertel123

Premier League is horrible this year.


ryanedwards0101

Rest of Europe should honestly be ashamed that all 7 of us got out the groups lol


EnergetikNA

I mean, two of them are Liverpool/City, Tottenham did well in groups, we had an evenly matched group and we did decently well to get out. Europa usually has fairly easy groups.


petertel123

3 were Europa League so its pretty easy to go through. Man City had a piss easy group and Liverpool is Liverpool. Tottenham and Chelsea actually did quite good by going through though.


IGuessIRanOutOfChara

> Europa League so its pretty easy to go through *Mikel Arteta dislikes this.*


frostwolf011

> 3 were Europa League so its pretty easy to go through. Then why did you fail to go through if it is so easy?


petertel123

Because we suck absolute ass.

IntellegentIdiot

Or maybe it's amazing?


freakedmind

Manager bounce in the first half of the season?


EnergetikNA

somehow snuck in last year too lol


IntellegentIdiot

Great start to the season. Since Mourinho joined Spurs Chelsea have had relegation form.


EvenGandhiHatesLVG

Except against spurs


IntellegentIdiot

Raised their game against us and then went back to normal


CodifiedRadian

Chelsea have been doing a West Ham for a while. Your lot properly hate Spurs. I think Spurs players hate Chelsea too, but Chelsea players like Willian and Jorginho are properly frothing at the mouth with hatred.


BlurEyes

Because no one wants it, and I guess it's now sinking into Lampard's Chelsea the same


PM_ME_WHAT_Y0U_G0T

You were playing well whilst everyone else was really shit, but now it would appear that you've lost form whilst everyone is getting better


rudolph10

Literally due to Tammy being on form for the first half of the season.


keloka4

no one else wants it, hot potato hot potato.


hirobaymax45

We weren’t so injured, same can be said for Spurs and United though. Weird injury plagued season.


Yellowtoblerone

well 5th are getting champo aren’t they?


[deleted]

That’s reserved for Tottenham, who will clinch 5th but miss out when City’s ban is overturned, in the most Tottenham of occurrences


ElephantsGerald_

Jesus I hadn’t even thought of this. Feels almost inevitable now.


Ralakhala

Sounds about right


Ralakhala

I wouldn’t rely on that until it’s guaranteed after the appeal


redent_it

Does anyone actually believe it's going to happen? Surely any punishment would be not be felt earlier than next year, with appeals and whatnot.


Ralakhala

Until I hear a statement from UEFA or CAS that says the appeal has been upheld I’m not believing it


twalterss

Europe is lava


AdvancedIndependent

Chelsea and losing to Bournemouth. Name a more iconic duo


Brendy25

Chelsea and conceding from corners


_ThatIrishGuy_

Chelsea and conceding*


kappa23

Frank needs to get a specialized corners coach/analyst I guess. Its not like Chelsea don't have the physicality.


BigReeceJames

I think it's much more simple than that if I'm honest. We just don't have any goalkeeping presence. We so often concede from set pieces because our opponents put it into the area that's most dangerous, but normally a waste of a ball because the keeper will come out and claim it. There's more chance of Jorginho running faster than a referee than that happening.


kappa23

Ah that too. It’s a massive part of corners But that can be helped with performance analysis


BigReeceJames

Would also help if your starting keeper wasn't 38, short (for a keeper) and was deemed not good enough to be a second keeper in the premier league by City 2? years ago and is now starting for Chelsea. We're horribly short in a few areas, but having big Willy as your starting keeper, with Kepa "no hands" Arizabalaga as your other option, is definitely the area we're shortest in. (And that's saying a lot, when you consider our second choice LB has scored more goals this calendar year than all three of our strikers combined...)


imtomyyy

london and corners


[deleted]

Chelsea and losing second half. \*9/10 PL managers recommends playing against Chelsea. >!\*Except Mou.!<


HeungMinSwan

Us and losing after Chelsea drop points..


EnergetikNA

Genuinely top 3 in my least favourite teams to play. They could have 36 losses and I'd be confident in their only 2 wins of the season being against us. Still time in this game though...hopefully can pull something out of our ass


0014A8

Not today


404randomguy404

Bournemouth fucking hates Chelsea lmao


fap4jesus

Same

Thank you Bournemouth, very cool


TheAlmightyKrot

Man United legend.


Ralakhala

And we aren’t even paying his wages. Top quality move from Woodward


hennny

Our best signing since Bruno Fernandes.


StalkingDwarf

Actual bogeyteam. They could've been up by like 2 more as well.


aacod15

How that was their 3rd shot on target. We could have been up by 3


teetly_

Billing missed 2 sitters


Viggorous

Awful Tomori, just awful.


zenneos

As much as I like our youth players Frank shouldn't be sentimental about them. I would rather us buy Ake who at least has a bit of leadership quality to him and a good defender than have our academy grads like Tomori making mistakes after mistakes and getting a pass as they are our academy kids. There are too many average players in the team and other players are leaving it would be interesting what Frank would do. Willian ( whoever offered him a 2 year contract should be sacked) Barkley(should be sold), GK (kepa sh$t), Batshuayi, Willy, Giroud, Pedro, Giroud, Palmieri will all be either leaving or sold.Thats 8 players


crookedhell

imagine thinking we'll do Bayern a 4-0 at their home ground lol


Chiswell123

Who thought that?


fap4jesus

Who thinks that?, show me one non twitter user who said that


Myoenat

Literally no one thinks that


armyvet22

It's from a FIFA19 Commentator


ryanedwards0101

I actually cannot imagine that


JuanMataCFC

i mean to be fair, 3-0 *is* the most dangerous lead.

At this point I could do better and I'm 5 ft 6 inches.


Chiswell123

I mean look how slow he reacts.. looks like he’s moving in slo-mo


fma891

Lol there was nothing he could do. Caballero looks silly but that’s because he hasn’t played competitively in so long. Most keepers wouldn’t even move. There was no way to save that.

Nope. All bad. Dont need to watch em

I swear to God that the last time i've saw Chelsea do a clean sheet their left back was Ashley Cole.

Chelsea's defence is so bad

Fucking hell, you could drive a bus through Chelsea's defence, there are so many fucking gaps.


CrimsonKing123

Lampard cannot organise a defence


Dormant_Genius

How many fucking goals do we concede between 45-60mins. Its ridiculous.

Shambolic defending

My stream froze and it's 2-1 lol

Does everyone linked with united suddenly become good?

Nobody has played well today. Even reliable Kovacic has been utter shit today. When Giroud missed that chance off the cross from Alonso, I knew this would happen

Welp angryrantman it is! Will be waiting for his reaction


idkwhoIam23

Still anyone think defense shouldn't be a priority? We definitely aren't 4th this season. Best we can hope for is 5th place and qualification for UCL.


Sharcbait

Not related to this goal but I was hoping a Bournemouth supporter could answer for me. What happened to David Brooks? I remember he was electric last year but hasn't played this year at all. Did he pick up a really serious injury or is it just a lot of small injuries that are keeping him out?


WheelmanGames12

Bad long term injury.


Sharcbait

That is a shame, hope he comes back as good as he was. Last season I think he was your most exciting player personally.


WheelmanGames12

As a welshman, I want nothing more than for him to light up the league when he returns. All my relatives in Wales who watch him say he's a cracking talent, hopefully I can see it for myself soon!


Nuri__Sahin

Forgot to bet Bournemouth ML given their love of playing Chelsea. Smh. What odds were they to win?

Surely Chelsea's officially Bournemouths Bi*ch

fma891

Tomori what the fuck are you doing. You left a massive hole behind you by trying to attack the ball there.


HedonisticVibrations

Luton fans getting deja vu with this goal ha! Last season it seemed like Stacey was setting up this exact goal every game! Great to see him contributing at the top level.


Dajo05

Reading fans reminded how much of an idiot Jaap Stam was for letting him go.


Vernon-T-Waldrip
