Usual defensive howlers, not convinced we have the CB personnel to say that any 2 are better than the other 3.
Redmond looks good but fades still. Lemina has so much skill but doesn't seem to do very much that is effective. Can't expect Ings to score every game and we can't defend a one-nil anyway.
Prettier than last year but we are heading for the same trouble unless we can start getting some points on the board.

20 MATCHES WITH THIS MANAGER & WHERE ARE WE GOING JUST AS WELL KEPT THE LAST MANAGER HE NEVER TOLD LIES
1ST HALF FORWARDS ALL DEFENDING
PHB LOOSES THE BALL JUST OUTSIDE THE BOX RESULT A GOAL & EVEN BEFORE THE BALL HITS THE NET HE PUTS HIS HAND ON HIS HEAD KNOWING WHAT HE HAS DONE
2ND HALF PUSHES THE SAME PRAT ON THE LEFT WING & THEN PUSHES LIMEY ON THE RIGHT WING LEAVING ORIAL CENTRE MIDFIELD WHO BY THE WAY IS THE ONLY MIDFIELDER WE HAVE THAT CAN PASS THE BALL FORWARD & FINE OUR PLAYERS
FOR CHELSEA JUST A TRAINING SESSION
ITS AS BAD AS ITS EVER BEEN FACT

There were some positives:
- we created chances, and should have scored two goals
- Gabbi was effective
I suspect there will be the same debates about Hoedt and Redmond.
Hoedt looked better than usual, but probably should've had a penalty awarded against him in the first half and, arguably, didn't give PEH the best ball to deal with for Chelsea's first goal.
Redmond did his usual thing of running well with the ball, and then failing to make any decision with the pass.

Today we started with three at the back - with Bedfnarek, the only one playing without making a mistake, gets taken off at half time. Yoshida had his usual lapses (not punished, but two horrendous mistakes) and Hoedt... Putting PEH under pressure with the pass was okay for me, a midfielder should be able to cope with that. The real error was him not getting back into his Position but attacking the ball, which wasn't his Job, so Hazard was as free as he ever could be with Hoedt completely out of position. And the third showed that this can't be the partnership for us. But... I fear we still haven't got one on our books.
Hughes... The german commentators summed it up this way: "Southampton managed to stay in the league, but not thanks to Hughes or great Performances or making many points, but by Swansea imploding. Hughes managed just over a Point per game and for that Performance he was rewarded with a three years contract. It seems you don't have to do a lot to get such a contract there."

Ings & Bertrand should be shot for missing sitters, in fact Bertrand was a liability all day, all over the place and nowhere to be seen when the second goal was set up from his position but with the man totally unmarked
