Pochettino’s mention of ‘process’ post-Boro defeat won’t sit well with Chelsea fans

It appears that many more Chelsea fans are losing patience with their manager as the days go by.

Losing against midtable Championship opposition last night seems to be the final straw for some fans, and many have wanted him gone for weeks.

In the view of balance we have to say that not all Chelsea fans want Pochettino gone, but the number that do is building up.

In his post-match press conference, Pochettino mentioned the ‘process’ once again, and this is becoming a bit of a trigger word for many Chelsea fans and I sense that this will not go down well once again.

We all know it’s a process, but after losing to a team a whole division below you, the last thing you want to hear about is the process of building a team, and the amount of injuries we have. Middlesbrough were also struck with injuries, more than us in fact. There’s no taking of responsibility and admitting how poor we are.

In words cited by Football London, Pochettino said: “I am disappointed because I think we deserve another result. Sometimes you play well and win. Sometimes we play well and we are not clinical enough. That is the process. Always in a process when you are building a team is tough.

“Today we made few mistakes and concede a goal that we should not concede and then we were not clinical enough.

“Bad luck because some injuries you cannot manage. It;s not about training, or capacity in all of the areas. That sometimes is the profile. Difficult answer because we are suffering too many injuries. I don;’t want to say bad luck as it is an easy way to justify. So bad luck, look Nkunku, Fofana, Lavia, Reece James, too many. Difficult when you don’t have all of the squad fit. Always every single week is about finding the right balance. I don’t like to be a victim but it is true it si really tough. Now we have the second leg and we need to be positive.

“We don’t know if we will recover players in time for Fulham. Now we need to provide trust and confidence in our players and recover as soon as possible to play Saturday.”
