    Well, it's certainly been an interesting start to the season.

    The positive...the new BPL GOAT, Morata, with a goal and an assist off the bench.

    The negative - loss to fucking Burnley.

    The hopeful outcome - a huge wake-up call to the shittiest board in English football that reinforcements are needed for any chance to repeat or make a run in the champions league.

    Yea, because Chelsea's board and owner are notorious for not spending money and strengthening the squad....

    The board is notorious for ignoring who the manager wants/needs and making their own choices. The board is notorious for thinking they know better what the manager wants/needs than the manager himself (this year is a prime example). The board is notorious for putting business and money above winning. The board is notorious for having mediocre ambition.

    They are also notorious for standing pat and not strengthening despite the manager's request many times (e.g. see Jose's last season...and they have not given Conte anywhere near what he has requested). They've ignored multiple requests by Conte this window...for players to stay and go simply to improve the bottom line.

    Chelsea for the last 2-3 years have been operating at a net spend.

    The problem though is that the board is selling players without Conte's approval. Also, the board isn't trying to build depth for the first team. Winning the champions league changed the focus of the powers that be and it's frustrating to say the least.

    Ugh, this season is going to be hard to watch. Just wanted to stay up but looking like that's improbable

    It's a long season. Ashley needs to splash some cash.

    It's hard to follow but it seems like we've been willing to spend we just can't get the players to come. Maybe that's off and we are throwing out low-ball offers.

    We need Lejuene back healthy and help up top

    Yep we are a joke. Nobody should complain about their board or coaching because it's not as bad as Arsenal's.

    What’s the story on tonight’s game, win and we are in? Sounds like we may be in with a draw as well?

    Just get a positive result and we are in. Goal differential is so big that a draw would be enough

    This is hard to watch and even harder to believe it’s the final game of WC qualifying and we aren’t necessarily safe.
