Tell Us Who Our Best Player Was At Chelsea – Ashley Must Buy Before Wednesday


We didn’t really expect to win at Chelsea, and we didn’t.

Newcastle played decent football in the first half, and we were well organized, but a second Batshuayi goal one minute before halftime was game over for Newcastle.

They were two quick breakaways goals by the Blues, and in the second half Chelsea completely controlled the game and added to their score with a brilliant free kick from Alonzo.

That’s what a player who cost £24M in the transfer market 18 months ago can do.

Michy Batshuayi – scores against Newcastle today

The highest valued player in our team today was Shelvey who cost us £12M two years ago.

It’s too obvious that Newcastle just don’t have the necessary class up front, so hopefully on-loan Chelsea winger Kenedy will offer some of that.

And we hope Newcastle can sign a striker before Wednesday, but we’ve been saying that now for the four weeks since the January transfer window has been open.

Failure to sign a class striker by Wednesday could make it very difficult for Rafa to save us from a second relegation in three years – it’s that serious.

    Blackley – “Tsunki, I’ve not only called this game from the start. But also what will happen in the transfer market. And on the “takeover””

    Well done Blackley, only you, the world and his dog.

    Thats because the 5 mil player is pure class and the 15 mil player is rubbish. So rubbish he is scared to sell him to a relegation rival.
    Rafa please explain.

    Mitro has only just returned to running a week or so back. He has also said he wants to leave the club. He also doesn’t fit into Rafa’s system of working hard and defending from the front. Clear why Rafa is not playing him (said it many times that although he is useless I would start him to give us a goal threat).

    Darlow had a decent game, saved it from being a cricket score. Decent first half from our lads but really went down hill..
    Not one shot on goal by our striker’s, says something.
    We get up the pitch then fizzle out time and time again.

    I think as fans we all felt the hiring of Rafa signified a change of club policy. We were wrong and Rafa has been treated as bad as all managers under thrashley. He’ll be gone in the summer.

    Might as well sell Gayle to Fulham. He offers nothing at this level. Can see why he failed at Palace now.

    Tin man I agree but we do need a replacement to come in if so.

    lol Blackie I forgot to mention the point on his aggression/discipline which is probably one of the biggest contributors.

    Its not a new manger we need, it’s a (wait for it) a new owner. Yes a new owner that support the club/manger with enough funding to buy decent players and get the youth academy pumping out fresh talent. Not other clubs offcasts where passion just does not come with them. Did you you see Hayden walking off at half time laughing and carrying on? That for me is an absolute pi##take and if I was one of those travelling fans I would of boo’d the c’#t for the rest of the game. This is taking it’s toll on my health I tell you. When the fun stops.

    Mitro may well be better than Gayle, Josalu and Perez but if his attitude stinks and Benitez let’s him get away with that then he might as well walk out the door. I expect this to be the case (although not certain) as I cannot see any other reason.
