‘Playing The Penalty’ Chelsea FanCast #1113

Stamford Chidge, Jonathan Kydd & Dean Mears look back at a miserable Carabao Cup final defeat to Liverpool.


In part one we discuss massive frustration and massive disappointment as Chelsea have now lost 6 of their last 6 Wembley finals – a horrid record, but it pre-dates Clearlake. A nervy start didn’t help and too many players making basic errors. Was Sterling’s goal offiside? Should Van Dijk’s goal have been disallowed? But Chelsea had more than enough chances to win it. Was it a case of poor finishing or good goalkeeping? Chelsea were the better side in the second half but what happened in Extra Time? Was it the subs? The players settling for pens or a lack of belief?


In part two we ask how much of this is on Poch and how much on the players? Will Poch win us a trophy? Does Poch have a future at Chelsea? Was it really a horrible atmosphere? And we discuss the fallacious Scouse Youth argument and Liverpool love in and Gary Neville’s Blue Bottle Jobs remark. And whilst it was a good day out, with no expectationa, is that really enough?


In part three we preview Chelsea v Leeds in wednesday's FA Cup match. We kick off with JK’s Presser Summary and Chidge’s team selection. But it's Dirty Leeds, History. The atmosphere will be febrile. The Bamford factor, Georginio and Piroe are decent and Leeds recent form is decent.


Strangely the last FA Cup match between the two sides was the infamous 1970 FA Cup final.  If we lose our season is over. Can they pick themselves up? We wrap up by discussing how’s it going to go and our predictions. And finally another round of 'They Played for Both'.
