    100%. It’s about the 5th-7th best squad in the league, yet the way some talk it’s like we’d be lucky to avoid relegation! Embarrassing

    Because Leicester is a much worse team, that gave us a lot more time. Chelsea play much much quicker, and have the players to be able to play that quickly. We don't, and either do Leicester. In fact our players are better than what Leicester have.

    The owners don't want to challenge for anything. If they had we would've beaten Leicester to the title and Liverpool to the Champions League. Just 2 or 3 more top class players in those seasons and it would've happened. Instead they either didn't spend at all or if they did, it was on more medicre players which means we consistently finish runner-up to everything. ENIC are perfectly happy finishing in 5th/6th/7th and maybe there's the odd cup run, mostly to pre-final stages where it inevitably ends to a well resourced opponent.

    Talking about corners, yet again we are abject at corners. Yet their corner delivery, movement and attacking the ball were spot on. Will we ever learn?

    At home, yes. We beat most teams at home. Different story away.

    What else have we learnt today?

    1. Bergwijn can't play centre forward.
    2. Dougherty is still useless
    3. Sess looks lost
    4. Our midfield isn't good enough
    5. Conte is not a master tactician

    Yeah, I agree, but I did not mean to imply that I think our entire squad is useless - it really isn't. We're just not at Chelsea's level at the moment, and will need the likes of Romero, a new midfielder, a new right back and a partner to Kane to begin to get anywhere in that regards.

    None of these things are surprising in the least. I'd argue they are all things we knew before this match. Hell, most we knew before this season started.

    Yet commentators thought we should have been 1-0 up at HT? The merest of hands on a defender the sole reason we weren't winning at the break. Fine margins between congratulating Conte on a perfect plan no? Second half, we let in two because Tanganga and Doherty were not able to handle Hudson. Conte changed it, but too late. With a day less rest, and all the hoopla over the Lecister win, the only way we were getting a result today was if we kept a clean sheet. So Conte's broad idea was correct for me, just takes some blame for not bringing on Moura and moving Doherty back a little quicker. Hidsight makes this easy to say.

    we're always scared going there. A pathetic victim mentality. You see it in these pages too with fans going on and on about referees and VAR having it in for us, etc, etc. The losing mindset has become imprinted deep into the DNA of the club and its fans. A winner like Conte can change it over time, but not unlless he is given the right tools to help him in that pursuit.

    I wish I shared your confidence.

    One of the most important things we could do this window is get him out. He’s now nothing more than a clown.

    we do go there thinking we will lose, but the refs do have it in for us, twice Chelsea players knocked us to the ground with higher force than Kanes “push” on Silva, only one was given as a FK

    But we didn't have the greatest squad under Poch. No one would have looked at that squad before Poch took hold of them and said title contenders. Easy to say they were in hindsight. Conte needs to do more than whinge. He's never going to get the great players he thinks he needs, neither is he going to be here years. Needs to get on with it. 3 games against Chelsea with no goals is not acceptable imho. He needs to shoulder some responsibility for that.
