Jorginho is a big waste of money, he can't run for shit!! I could run faster than that with my pants round my ankles.

Jorginho couldn't make a successful pass if he was the only man in a room of 100 women.

What a waste of money the Jorginho signing has been, well out of his depth at level.

I stand by what I said about Jorginho, that money would have been better spent on someone with talent

Jorgino never helps out defensively when we need it most, I have seen asthmatic ants with heavy shopping move quicker than he does

Why we signed Jorginho I will never know??? fucking clueless in all areas of the pitch, better off getting rid!! I don't want a player like that at our club.

You can probably dig out some posts of mine saying similar things and I still stand by them, great on his day, with a skill set that can be useful for any top club no doubt but overall he isn't consistent enough. He's benefited from roles in two good systems this year, with us and Italy which allow him a lot of protection. I think him being in contention for the Ballon d'Or says more about the competition he's had and more notably the emphasis that gets put on collective trophies, rather than individual performances. Overall, he's had a positive year no doubt, I appreciate his role in the squad but he probably isn't as good as some of the recognition he's been getting this year.

I wondered who you was talking about?

Yeah, its the biggest slap in the face to the other Chelsea players as their all season passenger picks up a gong for very little. I guess if France had won the Euro's or Croatia, Kante & Kovacic would have taken the UEFA gong. Maybe your boy would have got it if England had managed to fall over the line. Makes you wonder if Emerson Palmieri had made 10 more Chelsea appearances last season his name would already be engraved on the Ballon d'or.

In his favor Jorginho is a better player today because of his time in the Premier League. Think back to his refusing to run back when losing the ball & pussy footed attitude to tackling when he first turned up. Both have improved and by all accounts he is well liked by the other players. For me he above all benefited from Co-vid ban on fans attending. Before the ban he was getting alot of stick both home and away. When we return he is holding the CL and shaking hands receiving a UEFA gong.

The knowledge of those who don't attend games.

Spurs Away

Game of two halves with the manager being praised for his change of formation at half time when replacing the under performing Mount with a Third Holding midfielder. Of course if you are one of us you know this is the 2nd manager of Chelsea to use this formation to beat Spurs. Conte did exactly the same from the start at Wembley to win in a league game. Thomas says he wanted a higher tempo more energy. Spurs looked to have tired in the 2nd half which helped our dominance to steam roll them.

I think we can all agree our performance in the first half was below average, but Spurs have to be praised for the effort they put in pressing our defenders in Keeper as we attempted to play out from the back. On the whole we kept the ball well and never looked in trouble. Alas being kept in our own half for so long kinda highlighted the Mount breakaway he fucked up with a pass behind Lukaku and then unable to finish off Lukaku's ball back to him with a miss hit shot.

Many had Silva as MOTM. Not for me, I felt Alonso was most deserving of that and on another day he could\should have scored at least a brace. Kepa kept a clean sheet, but still has most of us on tender hooks when he is called into action.

Lastly, I don't get to watch many of the games on TV, especially on Sky as I find their coverage terrible. This match I watched at a Golf club and without access to the remote control was forced to endure Sky's output and their chosen pundits & commentary team. I pity anyone who pays Sky to watch their EPL offerings.

Credit to Tuchel for pulling Mount at the weekend, one of my favourite in game changes I can think of in recent years. Don't accept mediocrity, players have to be in the team based on merit and nobody's place in the team is given.

I'm singling out Mount but the likes of Havertz, Ziyech and Pulisic haven't been much better and you could say worse. The Mount change though, given his status and performances in the team the last two years, makes a strong statement.

Aston Villa Home LC

Not much to say other than we looked a little like Franks time by not being able to kill off a game. Everybody who took part looked to have put a shift in. Alas one or two had me raising an eyebrow suspecting their ability. Rather than name drop them, feel safe I don't expect to see them very often this season.

Villa look to have one or two young players who will have a career in the Premier League. I have seen Villa twice with most of their squad gaining airtime. They should be fine this season.

Back to London this weekend with the biggest match of the weekend being slotted into the lunchtime kick off. Kinda sums up how TV has helped create a monster at the detriment of its watching public.

I was doubtful about how good he was when he joined and always saw him as a bit overrated.

Proved me wrong, absolute don.

IMO Thiago is a generational defender. Probably the best brazilian CB I've ever seen.

I was afraid that this move to England at such a late stage of his carrer would ruin his reputation and I'm glad the opposite happened. 

The move to Chelsea took his legacy to another level.
