    would be interesting to see how liverpools good years compared to chelseas good year

    False comparison. There are six "big" clubs all challenging today (and Leicester).

    In those far off days, once one got into the European Cup, the odds on winning it were enhanced by the presence of only one German, one Italian and one Spanish side. Today there are multiples plus PSG and other English sides.

    That's what a fucking "project" looks like Corndog...

    Someone asked last night what Sarriball was and so I had to explain that it consisted of passing out from the back, passing among the back five for a while and then booting to a little chap who would then return possession to the other side. And then repeat. 71 minute Barkley for Kovacic and a brief while later swap Pedro and Willian. Usually with ten minutes to go, take off the striker and bring on Giroud. Last night, of course, Sarri surprised everyone by swapping one right full back for another, which is what one usually does in a cup game when trailing by two goals. Heaven forfend that one would take a risk by taking off a defender and bringing on a forward. We could have used Giroud, Willian and Hudson Odoi last night and taken off Azpilicueta Alonso and Kovacic. We might still have lost, we might even have lost 4-0 but we might have had a chance at scoring.

    Sadly Sarri is going nowhere. He can take us out of the Europa on Monday, lose by a massive margin to City’s junior squad on Sunday and again to Spurs next Wednesday but he won’t be fired until April at earliest and, at that time, what would be the point until the end of the season. We will be lucky to qualify for the new European competition at this rate but if we do, we could, at least add a further trophy and become the only club in Europe with all four.

    So let’s be positive.

    A bit of early complacency and they go 1-0 up. 2-2 on aggregate. Away goals in our favour.

    We wake up and are 2-1 up at half time. 4-2.

    60 mins and substitutions.

    85 mins and they win a dodgy penalty. 2-2 (4-3)

    90+2 mins. All up for a corner and the goalie heads one in 2-3 on the day 4-4 on ACG and they go through.

    Chelsea were woeful tonight. Shockingly sloppy. Malmo have the advantage of away goals in the second leg.

    Should have put it to bed tonight and rested players next week. Can’t now.

    That said, I can see us losing 10-0 at Wembley.

    Jonny, we ought to lose to Malmo and beat ManU. The sequence is that we lose away games and win home ones.
