    When was the last time we conceded 4.

    Played some excellent football today and still taking a hiding. **** this Wembley stadium


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,515 ✭✭✭ Glebee


    Sign of a good team. Play bad and still win


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 21,778 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kiith


    This is nothing to do with Wembley. Chelsea were more clinical, and in the end they deserved to win. We don't have anywhere near the strength of depth that they have on our bench, and it showed once Hazard and Costa came on.

    Sick as a parrot! I f***ing hate Chelsea

    Great game, played well, lost to a very good team. I'm guessing not all will agree with me..


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,515 ✭✭✭ Glebee


    As long as arsenal don't win tomorrow now.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,865 ✭✭✭ Snake Plisken


    See how long it is before their scummy fans like Gav come in here and start trouble. No class and scummy fans!

    Am I right that they had one corner and scored? Whereas we had about eleven? We just could not break them down at times.

    The way Chelsea played reminded me of Leicester last season.

    Gutted. Kante committed 6 fouls yet only gets booked in garbage time. Luiz should have been in yellow earlier too. Moses cheats and not one commentator calls it for what it is. We played well we just lack magic. They were as they have been all season very lucky.


  • Registered Users Posts: 455 ✭✭ Dave11


    Good game of football and Chelsea were more clinical in front of goal today.

    One thing I've learned today is the BBC pundits are idiots!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,835 ✭✭✭ Deise Vu


    You live and, hopefully, you learn. Lloris should have trusted his wall, Son, I have no words, and I do not know how nobody got a block on the Hazard shot. Small things with big consequences. Idiots will come on here and talk about bottlers and Chelsea Class as if conceding 11 corners demonstrates control. Make no mistake, the better team lost and I hope they demonstrate it in the next few weeks.

    Another valuable lesson hope was learned is that top teams can foul far more frequently and get away with it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 262 ✭✭ Jack_K


    I think Spurs are strong enough to not let this affect them mentally resulting in a poor last few league games.

    In the end its only the FA Cup.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 21,778 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kiith


    Palace next week is massively important for us. We need to show that a loss like this doesn't cause us to lose our focus, and we can keep the pressure on Chelsea.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,123 ✭✭✭ Charliebull


    Disappointed but the one light is this is a team which will win something very soon

    Agree re the commentators not even calling moses out on it, but Son left himself totally exposed. And Hugo, such an amateur mistake for their 1st.

    And they continually fouled and got away with it, it's frustrating but this team has no god given right to win anything, they have to go out and do it.

    Proud to hear the fans still singing at the end. Tough on Eriksen, what a footballer, Glenn would have been proud of that pass.

    I hate the expression it's only the FA cup, it was a big chance for us to win something and lay down a marker.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,296 ✭✭✭ positivenote


    They bring on Costa and Hazard, Poch looks to a bench with Jansen and Sissoco (sic) ... here lies the problem. Levy needs to get his purse out but he aint going to change a habit of a life time. So sick today


  • Hosted Moderators Posts: 5,395 Hatch99


    Awful call to play son ahead of Davies, Davies has been excellent in Rose's absence. And then trippier goes to the left WTF.

    Anyway, let's try get second now

    :pac:

    Ye were very good, theres a trophy in that Spurs side but not this season, IMO.

    I love the calling of fans scum though and then saying theyve no class.

    The irony isnt lost on me.

    Good luck in Wembley next year too.

    Horrible club. Horrible plastic fans. Horrible club captain.

    Close the door on the way out.

    Horrible club - ah its not really, we're not Millwall thankfully.

    Horrible fans - see above.

    Horrible captain- What has Azpilicueta ever done to you?

    On one of the Spurs podcasts they decribed Davies as the most irreplacable player on the team with Rise injured.So it has proven. Wimmer and Vertonghen too slow to play left side together in a four or five. Son/N'Koudou no defensive instincts.
    Trippier and Walker , one on the left might have been the best solution. Our wingbacks were too high up the pitch for the first goal, and the second was a winger playing full-back.
    We owned the first hour and were 2-2 after it. Fair play to Chelsea for the rest- butI hate Hazard and Fabregas, I can't deny it.
    Kante is like three players, and Martin Atkinson let a lot go, which didn't suit us as the team on the front foot all day.
    In 2010 we lost a cup semi-final, then beat Arsenal, Chelsea, and Man City to reach the Champions League.
    Six wins please, and maybe Southampton will do Poch a favour. A Gabbiadini special or two. Then it's up to us at Palace. we are on the cusp of greatness, and if we play that well at Wembley next year, we wil win a lot of matches.

    I still don't understand how your a C Mod you should be demoted as your not fit to mod with the amount of trolling you do!
    As for Chelscum your alliance with Millwall and Rangers FC is basically why your a horrible club with horrible fans!
