‘Brain Fog On the Tyne’ Chelsea FanCast #1085

Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Marco Worrall to look back at a disappointing 4:1 defeat away to Newcastle on Saturday.

We start proceedings with a tribute to former Chelsea player, Terry Venables, who sadly passed away at the age of 80 on Sunday.

Atrocious defending and poor discipline cost us up at St. James' Park on Saturday, with three of the goals avoidable and many of the yellow cards. But is Silva past his sell by date or do we have short memories? Did we miss Moises bite in midfield? How much of an impact did the International Break have on a lacklustre and dozy performance?

In part two, was Poch's criticism of the players justified and how much should he shoulder the blame? Jackson offered nothing again, how much do we need a new striker in January or do we pray that Nkunku is the bollocks? How much of Chelsea's malaise is down to the players, or Poch or Clearlake for not buying a striker and experienced players? How far off it are Chelsea – Europe? Mid-table? How long to put it right and how? And finally, how secure is Poch?
