Pundit remains unconvinced of Chelsea’s form despite a win due to appalling performance
Frank Leboeuf is the kind of pundit we like when it comes to Chelsea, because he watches every game.
Some of the big names just tune in to watch our Super Sunday matches or the occasional derby. Frank watches every game and sees what we see – a team that looks no better or more cohesive than it did in August.
He slated the Blues on ESPN after a narrow win over Fulham on Saturday that was only secured by a Cole Palmer penalty. His assessment of our play is hard to argue with:
“Really, that was again an appalling, for me, performance. Only Palmer gives me hope that something good can come out from a player.
“But otherwise, again, it’s predictable, it’s nothing special, they don’t create anything, they don’t change the pace.”
It’s a tough one. We’ve won a few games, we’re doing miles better than last year, we’re in a cup semi final and we’ve played some good matches this year. We don’t want to be more negative than necessary.
But do we agree with pretty much everything Leboeuf says? Do we think we’ve won most of these games despite being terrible rather than because we’re improving? Sadly yes to that too.
