    A fraud is a manager that has achieved lots by luck and is now being found out.
    Frank is still a learning manager, and is yet to achieve something.
    Hopefully Chelsea give him at least this season to show progress and character, and with any luck stick with him.

    City have been really good today. Just unlucky for Chelsea that all 3 goals came from small errors that City punished. Chelsea were playing quite well up to the first goal.

    Easy to say in hindsight but I find some of Chelsea’s summer signings really strange, given who they already had at the club.

    Yeah, I don’t think you can draw many conclusions about Chelsea from today alone. City are a top side when they decide to turn up. What would concern me is the fantasy football transfer policy combined with some concerning in game management decisions in other fixtures so far this season.

    That's not how the football business works and rightly so, no room for sentiment in football ownership managers not doing good enough you get rid before they do more damage. Lampard just like Southgate is a lower end championship manager that got the job for reasons other than their football management ability. He's not terrible but he's not a good enough manager for Chelsea, he was just about good enough for us (Derby) and I could see tactically at championship level he was inept at times he's a school boy compared to the likes of Klopp and Mouriniho.
  • The defense is shocking, veteran Azpi at right back and Thiago Silva ain't it. And the Sarr signing situation is another lel

    Silva has actually been one of our better players. Also if you bothered to watch us you’d realise Azpi is not a starter anymore and is playing due to injuries and fitness issues.

    I mean sure slate us as we deserve it but do it with some knowledge :joy:

    To be fair, Thiago has looked really good so far this season. He’s had a bad few moments today though. He’s playing today how I would expect a 36 yr old defender to play haha

    Think a big problem that Chelsea has is that none of Mendy, Zouma and Thiago are particularly good ball players, so Kante or Kovacic need to drop alongside them to get the ball moving. This is letting City push up a lot easier on the press.

    Maybe this is too much detail for online footy discussion :D . Frank sucks boys mirite.

    I never said that. So that’s another thing you didn’t bother paying attention to.

    I don't get where the "Fat Frank" thing comes from.
    He doesn't look particularly out of shape. :D

    West Ham fans called him it for years while he was playing.
