Another Derby Shocker

How very appropriate that the team that fielded two proper strikers scored two goals while the team that played no genuine centre forwards scored no goals. Although Chelsea 'enjoyed' an abundance of possession, they typically looked incapable of scoring a solitary goal against Arsenic. I hate this team right now and the people who are ruining the club with their awful recruitment policy. On the field, Chelsea are clueless in the final third. This is the same club that boasted Flo, Hughes, Vialli, and Zola in the same squad. This is the club that played Gudjohnsen and Hasselbaink in tandem. This is the club that had Anelka and Drogba playing together. However in recent years, the lone striker lark has been a serious drag. We've sought out misfits like Falcao, Pato, Giroud, and sulky Morata. We need to go back to two up top.

Instead we have to suffer a manager who talks baloney about the mentality of his players. Maybe he needs to look at his own mentality. His favourite pet, Jorginho, is an overpaid, glorified John Obi Mikel. He hasn't provided a single assist all season. Kovacic, another Sarri favourite, hasn't scored a single goal. That's two very limited midfielders. The third, Kante, is not a natural scorer. We have a team that looks like frightened little rabbits when they bring the ball forward. They're almost terrified to score. They'd much sooner play the ball along the halfway line to each other for ninety minutes and pocket £100,000 per week for doing so. This team are robbing the club blind. The manager ain't much better. The team isn't free scoring, it's not playing attractive football, it's bypassing young talent yet again, and there are no English players. Sarri and his numpties are just not ticking any boxes. An eventual league position of sixth looks increasingly likely. Oh how I hate how Chelsea Football Club is being ruined on and off the field.
