Equally worried about our inability to keep the ball after that.

4 years with no pace. No one learns.

Got an Ipswich fan telling me how poor we are. Painful.

You mean our complete lack of tactics other than "stick everyone behind the ball and hope for a replay, and in the replay we will stick everyone behind the ball and hope for penalties"?

Would have liked to see Reach out left and FF up front with Fletcher and Matias on the right ... oh wait that’s players being played where they should be ...seems only Bullen does

that.

Not only are we physically slow but we also move the ball at a snails pace it doesn't matter whether we are playing Chelsea or Burton the majority of the time we need 4 or 5 touches before we are able to pick a pass.

Very true this...the Chelsea players ability to move the ball quickly...even from foot to foot of the same player was drawing fouls from our slow players eg the penalty incident. We are so slow it’s untrue...they all need to sharpen up in the knife drawer before we meetBilly Blunt and his mates.:picnic:

Should have started with Joao. 

 

Fletcher is wasted on nights like tonight

We where very poor tonight imo. Pace has been an issue for years. However all that matters for me is how we do against Ipswich. Realistically we where never going to get anything from tonight’s game. However the performance was a let down.

Gulf in class was there to see tonight. Chelsea training must be entirely one touch football...we probably haven’t graduated to two touch yet. That goal of Willian’s was a prime example...to casually stroke that into the corner off the top of the bounce, can you see Boyd, Fox, or Reach doing that ? Row Z at the very least! :Pelupessy:

Bruce sides usually have pace, so hopefully it won't be long before we'll see some but this current side/squad is so one paced it's unbelievable.

When i think of pace, i don't believe the above offers that .. they are fairly quick .. but when we talk of pace then the likes of JJ, Antonio and Helen recently spring to mind .. its that type of pace we miss and have done since the Hull final .. how many years later and this still hasn't been addressed.
