all a bit familiar, couple of good games then drop points while dominating game.

After those years of winning silverware who’d be a Chelsea fan? Today’s result must be a new low ebb. 😂
They are of course about to play in a Champions League quarter final against Real Madrid, and we respectively are excited about playing a team from the fourth division in the FA Cup. They also won the competition in 2021, whereas the biggest competition we’ve ever won was the England Supercup in the 1910/11 season.

Not meaning to piss on your cornflakes but a sense of perspective is needed here…

They were OK today. I watched the whole game. But they pass the ball around too slowly. With 'inferior' players we look a whole lot more spicy, even salty.

Which is why we are above them in the league, perhaps :shrug:

I will never forget where I was and what I was doing when our win against Plymouth was announced as getting us promoted in 2001. I remember thinking how supporters of the "big" clubs could ever get the level of joy I was experiencing following our promotion from the 4th tier, after everything we had been through. Everything is relative, supporting teams like Chelsea is easy.

PS I still love Micky Adams!

Ditto how I felt as a 15 year old on 26 April 1965, when we beat Darlington 3-1 in front of 31,000 at the Goldstone to win Div 4.

We haven't spent half a billion on players in the last 2 transfer Windows. Its all relative.

I think our view of other clubs is influenced by the era in which we were youngsters/teenagers. On that basis (late 70s/early 80s) I still see Chelsea as a distinctly average club as prone to be in div 2 as div 1. Not helped by Stamford Bridge which is an average ground that was a lot more impressive when it was a dump with a running track.

The press only chose to look at the last 15-16 games of his career with us, describing his whole tenure as fantastic and what a great job he had done. A win percentage of 31% doesn't suggest this. He was wildly inconsistent. One minute looking like world beaters, next minute didn't know where and when the next point or goal was coming from.
See this attitude annoyed me at the time and it annoys me now. Sure his first seasons in charge (looking purely at the points earned and goals scored) was not much different to CH, but that is where the comparison ended. From the very start we looked like a team who wanted to win, who could win, who belonged in the division rather than a bunch of squatters desperately defending their tenure. TB saw it pretty much straight away which is why he extended the contract after a few games. It takes time to change and rebuild a squad and he did this on a small budget in what I feel was a bloody short amount of time. So I thank him for his work, have disdain for how he left, and am really glad RDZ was scouted and hired and has been able to build on what he inherited.

Don’t you just like a Chelsea fan?
My point was them getting another poor home result against a team of donkeys. I’m sure their fans are over the moon and relishing a hammering from Madrid.

I had some patronising Man Utd fan telling me in supercilious tones that 'it was good to see you small clubs doing well' the other day. I told him that he may have seen glory days of winning things, and 'disaster' to him may be not winning something that year - but I had Hereford and everything that led up to it, and that I pitied him because that was a far more important and meaningful experience than anything he and his club had ever, or would ever go through.

I e had similar discussions with people who can't understand that for clubs like ours or any club for that matter it's not just about trophies and not winning the league regularly isn't an issue

You can see how uncomfortable he is. Defensive body language, Folded arms, rubbing his nose. He knows he’s full of shit.
He's had a rough ride for sure. At one stage I was feeling a tad sorry for him but the recent video clips show he has really sold his soul (which fits in fine at a club like Chelsea). Real will beat them easily and then I can't see their league form picking up thereafter. Would love to finish above them just to rub it in further.
