Davis not even on a 7 man bench. Harry must be angry with him, or is he injured?
pompeyyong
they say he's injured... but he's frozen solid isnt he...
pompeyrug
kaboul will offer an extra shield to the backline in a midfield role wont he... or are we going 5 at the back with johnson and hermann as wingbacks?
pompeyrug
from skysports, it was four at the back, with 3 in middle, and kranjcar just ahead, and then crouchy and defoe upfront
Gleams
well here we go guys, im sticking with my 2-1 pompey :-)
pompeyrug
butterflys are rumbling, mixture of excitement, dread, and my minds still on the harry hammers swap
Gleams
Come on Kaboul!
ChrisW
his chance to shine isnt it... and i reckon he will today, as will we...
pompeyrug
deco could have picked up a yellow for that foul on diarra couldnt he...
pompeyrug
nice move!
ChrisW
COME ON POMPEY!! Couldnt stand skysports news, billy davies, ''pourts-mouth''! and chelsea this chelsea that, RADIO FIVE LIVE......Defoeeeeeeee
Gleams
Sound as if were playing pretty decent. aslong as we hold it till the later stages, then a debut goal for thomas
Gleams
weve started brightly...
pompeyrug
Jamo!! solid as a diamond rock?!
Gleams
nice Crouchie
ChrisW
just have to think that if kranjcar was going, he wouldnt of started, since weve got thomas has cover.
Gleams
keep fat frank out - he always scores against us - and we can do this!
pompeyrug
richest payed player in europe, disgraceful!!
Gleams
kaboul looks like a defender playing in midfield at the mo... very heavy touch.
pompeyrug
worried about diarra's knee after that foul by deco...
pompeyrug
Kaboul looks energetic, if a little wooden.
ChrisW
I hope hes not the longterm option there.
Gleams
***** sake, ******** chelsea
Gleams
good run and ball, but where was the defence... early days, early goal isnt ideal but we can still do it!
pompeyrug
Optimism is slipping away from me rug, I wish I had your hope!.
Gleams
we look ok apart from Diop and Kaboul...
ChrisW
is diop playing lol! kaboul doesnt look comfortable on the ball at all...
pompeyrug
spot on Rug -
ChrisW
nice volley diop!!
Gleams
well done jamo!
pompeyrug
Jamo!!
ChrisW
come on, kaboul is useless at teh moment, keep it down till 1-0 until half time
Gleams
englands number one, england, englands number one...
pompeyrug
looks like he might be trying alittle too hard...
pompeyrug
Lampard is a fat chancer
ChrisW
good analysis Chris. : )
Gleams
we can still get something here... keep it tight and bring on some width in the 2nd half and who knows!
pompeyrug
what the ***** was that...
pompeyrug
anelka the sulking *****. hernan needs to step up.
Gleams
shocking defending and jamo went for a wonder when he might not have needed it...
pompeyrug
Can't see Harry - is he on the line or the bench?
ChrisW
Worst ******** week every, ***** sake, im sick of chelsea. Anyone can win the league if you pay plays 151,000 a week, go home abramovich
Gleams
HR is on the bench.
pompeyrug
not a bad effort from kaboul, power no placement... reckon we should take a chance at half time and get thomas on for diop or kaboul...
pompeyrug
almost caught out again - by a long ball!
pompeyrug
all this talk of good football, they just punt it past us.
Gleams
Diarra could posisbly be the best player on the pitch
ChrisW
chelski are playing well, diarra needs more help tho - namely some width and an outlet...
pompeyrug
we look like a team that's already played in Europe this week
ChrisW
bring on thomas at the break, or utaka - at least give the option of some width... we keep wanting to go out wide right but have no one there!
pompeyrug
omg
ChrisW
4-3, were gonna win 4-3...
pompeyrug
Utaka for Diop at half time? What about Mvuema on for Krancjar
UKTony
I thought Kranjcar started to get his act together in the last 10 minutes.
ChrisW
I can't think of a positive thing to say after that first half. We were totally ripped apart over and over. Shocking!
sneakay
Don't think it's that bad Sneakay. It shouldn't have been a pen and the Chelsea boys are playing to impress the new gaffer.
ChrisW
Im sure FA will have a field day if the scoreline stays the same : )
Gleams
Have we actually managed to link more than 3 passes together though Chris? Does the midfield know what they are doing? Kaboul and Diop look completely out of place and so far Nikko has been a waste of space. Thankfully as always Diarra is pulling his weight. Crouch and Defoe look unsupported and the defence are not with it. What positives are you seeing?
sneakay
I think we all realise that we have serious mid-field issues - just a shame we played the best home team in the country on day #1 before we had a chance to sort it out..
ChrisW
not trying to make excuses - or sound like HR - but we must remember it is chelski we are playing... weve been ok, some welll below par... with some width we might have caused problems, get diop off!
pompeyrug
Agreed Sneakey - it's not good but as I said above it wasn't unexpected. It's not just that we are missing Muntari and Mendes either - the team is ill equipped to play 4-4-2. Positives. Well - Defoe looks lively -
ChrisW
only positive i see is we're only 45 mins from the end of our torture. top 6 not on what i've seen today.
Steve C
square pegs in round holes - that our problem, bring on utaka and/or thomas...
pompeyrug
Wondering if Jamie Redknapp might get a game..
ChrisW
i'll come out of retirement to give them an option :-)
pompeyrug
At least Diop is fighting for it.
ChrisW
diop has been good this half, credit where due...
pompeyrug
WHY WASN'T THAT A ******** PENALTY THEN!!!
pompeyrug
looking better -
ChrisW
lets get some pride from this now.
pompeyrug
A good 10 minutes at last. Looks like they finally want to play in this game. Hoorah. 3 goals in 25 minutes maybe?
sneakay
I'll be happy with 1 tbh
ChrisW
Diarra injured?
ChrisW
You would think that its only our fans in the ground! Well sung boys!
sneakay
3-0 away to chelsea, not lost in 82 games, new manager, and all. bad start, harsh on the penalty, it all adds up. I dont think you can judge how good we are on this game.
Gleams
come on thomas, 20 minute cameo!
pompeyrug
at the moment were 20th in the table. : (
Gleams
could be worse, we could be nothern b*stards
ChrisW
haha, or spurs supporters
Gleams
did you see Scolari explaining the rules to SWP?
ChrisW
SWP = 10 minutes a game. every week. well done shaun.
Gleams
Second half performance leaves room for optimism
ChrisW
*****
Gleams
Oh great! 4-0 ~ *******
Et_tu_Pompeii
Down to Earth with a BIG crash.
sneakay
im no keeper but i reckon jamo went with the wrong hand...
pompeyrug
chelsea are good, we were poor. a RW, and from the looks of things another CM. and sol needs to put his boots up
Gleams
So, not missing Muntari and Mendes, than?
Et_tu_Pompeii
Am I the only one thinking Steve Claridge is a tit?
Et_tu_Pompeii
And we even missed our only chance
sneakay
I think we need a clearout, we must get some money. even if it cost us in the long run, were not a balanced team.
Gleams
And I was only yesterday, gloating at The Scum's league position
Et_tu_Pompeii
Jamo at fault probably for 2 goals and a harsh penalty, bring on Utd.
sneakay
one game guys, chelski are no mugs - we were poor in most areas, but it was chelski... this is one game, we were poor we will get better...
pompeyrug
hopefully this sparks harry to do something about the money situation. perhaps a ultimateum?
Gleams
mate if we have no money there is little we can do, if he isnt going to get any money if he threatens to go if he doesnt get it then sasha will say go... as above, one game against a top class side! we were poor, but we dust ourselves down and show were better than this...
pompeyrug
we should do better for united, hopefully.
Gleams
were at home, so yep we will do better against manyoo - at old trafford we would have got stuffed!
pompeyrug
Chelsea were different class, started to look a little better in second half then bang what a kick in the teeth. agreed Jamo at fault for 2 & unfortunate penalty, then we did not get ours.On the plus the blue socks set that kit off nicely. Sorry!
pompeyyong
pompey..you lot have been deco-ed...hard luck boys..do the mancs for us will you!!
essientric
Well I'm really depressed after that - I expected us to lose, it being Scolari's first game and at the Bridge and all, but not like that - we were awful and Jamo had a mare in front of Fabio - I'm glad the 4th goal wasn't in an England shirt, he'd have been crucified. I was confident about the manyoo game, but not anymore. It didn't help that I watched in a pub sat behind a table full of Chelski ***'s as well.
tracyc
I get no satisfaction from forcasting the correct score.
007
3 defenders on the bench says a lot of players not available?
storagematt
Don't be so depressed, pompers. But do thrash those Mancs for us will you, Uncle 'arry always gets the better of him, well atleast sometimes.
raaid
First game in a long season. All the best for the rest of the season.
