Harvey Elliot goes down in pain after an absolutely shite challenge. Not even a free kick. He's back on though, if a little ginger.

Have to say that Chelsea are pretty much wandering through us at will here. We're really not at the races today.

Are Chelsea significantly older than us? Not that it should matter

Not sure but their team look HUGE. At this level that's quite the advantage. A lot of these big lads look really good in these games because of the physical advantage but that disappears when they get to the adult game and some fade away. Having said that a lot of this Chelsea team look pretty fancy.

I should also say that we've looked very out of sorts.

And as I say that Chelsea wander up and score again, sending two of our defenders out for pie and chips before slotting home into the corner. Poor old Kelleher. 3-0.

Outside rudiger and batshuayi, no

Think you're underselling btheir over technical quality and general coaching behind them.

Don't think so, although Rudiger and Batshuayi are playing. Apart from them I think the age profile is pretty similar. They are probably one of the two best academies in the country though and while ours is good, it's not that good. That's the impression I have anyway, although I may be wrong.

"pretty fancy" was as far as I was prepared to go. This is Chelsea after all.

It ends 3-0 to Chelsea who were in comfortable control throughout really. Quite like the look of Harvey Elliott though. Kelleher did well - bit unlucky that his one mistake led to their first goal.

You're right. About 30-or so Reds.

Quality goal form Michy Batshuayi as I type.

I was there and most of them appeared to be connected to Brewster. He pissed the coaching staff off by spending a good 10/15 minutes with them after the game, Critchley had to send someone out to get him and Dixon-Bonner back in.

We were woeful. Chelsea's game intelligence, movement off the ball and on the ball ability was levels above ours - especially in midfield.

Just clocked Chelsea had a played called Nii Lamptey, prompted me to google the original....fucking hell that poor bloke must have broken about 80 mirrors!
I believe the average spend will go up £5 ahead and thatís being very conservative. So thatís £185k. Then you have a new 25k who will spend £10 a head thatís £250k. This is without the massively enhanced hospitality areas.
