Are we back?
It's been so long since I have written about Chelsea and sports In general and with good reason too. I can still remember very vividly my last sports post ( Is Potter no better than Tuchel?) where I talked about our loss to Arsenal and how bad we've been this season. It's been a long time since then and It's safe to say not much has changed in the Chelsea camp. Just before all through to after the world cup we have been shambolic. Since that post, we've only won 3 games out of 15. We drew 6 and lost 8. Losing to the likes of Southampton along the way. The amount of pain I got when watching their matches was getting unhealthy. They could barely string one or two good passes together, one would think they just met each other and haven't been training together for at least a few weeks to a month.
As a Chelsea fan, it's been a very tough season. When Graham Potter was appointed I thought he had what it takes, but so far it has looked far from it. The team seems to lack chemistry, the players look like shadows of their former selves, and he's made a lot of questionable tactical changes and selections. We have also had the XG curse, whereby we have high expected goals but fail to convert. I know this is not something that should be the coach's fault, but it's a bit suspicious that the same issue his team was having at Brighton is the same one we are having now.
But despite this horrible run that has seen us all the way down to 10th on the premier league log, and knocked out of the FA cup we managed to win our last two games and surprisingly one of them was a comeback victory against Dortmund to secure a space in the champions league quarterfinal. Now the thing is there were rumors that the last two games were a last chance for Potter and that if we'd lost them he would have been sacked. I wanted him sacked, so it's a bit of a bittersweet victory for me.
Signs of improvement are not so obvious and it just looks like the same thing every match. Either we play well and miss so many chances, or we play absolutely shit. We have been labeling the missed chances as unlucky and in the last two games we finally got goals and won.
It is really hard to see what comes next from here for Chelsea. Teams often start a good run of form after winning consecutively, but you never really know with Chelsea and with this new manager. Winning this last two matches hasn't automatically saved him his job. He still has a lot of winning to do if he's going to prove to majority of the fanbase that he actually has what it takes to take this team to the glory days once more.
Chelsea's chance of playing in the champions league next season is all but gone. The only way they can do it is if some magic happens and the likes of Tottenham, Liverpool,Newcastle, and all the other teams on top them just continously drop points and they keep winning or they win the champions league. The odds on any of those happening are very very small. But I would say if any was more likely to happen it'll be them winning the champions league. Do I think they can win it? No. Will that stop me from wishing they do it? No. A man can dream.
Anyway, I'm really hoping Chelsea's last two wins can spark a run of form so we can at least finish this shambolic season on a good note.
~THANKS FOR READING~
Oh...it's sport blog
Nice...I know how much you love sport talks as well... and as for Chelsea, can anything good come from them? Lol
They are bunch of disappointments..lol
Anyways, I wish them well
Am very very surprised to see you here but it's alright.
Chelsea is actually the best club, the prides of London..
We are just suffering from managerial issue currently
You are now the engagement king
MTN, everywhere I go 😄😄😄
Who Chelsea help
Better leave that dead team
Hahaha, just for the moment 😂
I would have argued more but I'll give you headache if I do 😂
No room for arguments bro
U are just doing well
I will love to be like you when I grow
Eweee... Wetin I never hear😂
Dey play 😂
lolz, I knew I'd find you here.
See this one saying can anything good come from Chelsea. Don't you remember that just recently Chelsea beat you, people, on the most important match of your history (champions league final)
I like man city oo, but I love chelsea more. Man city always flops outside of their home (england). They are the definition of local champion
Thanks for showing up Nkem. Love and light 😘
You are totally wrong about man city
See bos oo
Just dey play 😂
Lolz, have man city won any trophy outside England? No. So they are local champions.
they've been bottling champs for years now. They don't have even one in their entire history. What do you call that one?
It's been a very poor season with the players we've had at our disposal. Hopefully we can make a good run of the Champions League. It might be a catch-22 if we won it because what would happen with Potter?
hehe, It'll be one of those " when we get to the bridge we'll cross it" type of situations.
Just after two consecutive wins and you guys are already buzzing around. It’s one thing I don’t like about Chelsea club and their fans, they tend to make too much noise. I pray you guys don’t come back to any good form for now 😂. It’s always nice making fun and laughing at Chelsea fans. 😅
haha, see this first-class hater. From my post, it's clear that I'm not buzzing, just hoping that we can at least finish this horrible season on a high.
By the way, what club do you support?
I wasn’t talking about you though, I have friends who are Chelsea fans and they have started with their buzzing I just hope next season you guys play conference league 😂
By the way I support the biggest team in the world, Manchester United
Its very likely we play conference league oo. Unless we win champs which is very slim. Sha if we play we better win it. Atleast we can be the first club to have won the European treble 😂 (champions league, Europa league, and Conference league).
Dey play, just dey play
I never for once was in support of the appointment.
It's really something I still don't understand even until now... Why was Tuchel sacked🤧
If I'm been very realistic and honest with you, I would tell you that Chelsea I know, I will say isn't back yet because I don't trust Potter.
His substitution choices are always so so Wrong that I will say we got off those two wins by luck.. he doesn't look quite prepared for Chelsea or perhaps, he can't manage the club well
I completely agree with you. His decisions are always questionable, and his tactics are not so clear. I want him gone too, but if only there's a way it could be done without us losing lol.
We've lost enough abeg😂😂

It's a Shambolic season Indeed but I have confidence in myself that Chelsea will make us proud at the end. Don't you believe in magic.
hehe, I believe in magic oo, but this one is hard. sha if there's any magic that can happen Harry Potter has to turn up.
