I thought City's players were being a bit twatty at the weekend.

I can't really remember the game as I don't think I paid much attention. I don't particularly enjoy watching City.

I bought a Wrexham shirt for Louis Capaldi back in June. True story.

I think this needs to be expanded on.

Ha. The club shop staff looked at me like I had 4 heads.

Yeah I don`t think the top league in Scotland can afford it so not expecting it at our games anytime soon.

You ( Wrexham ) have just drawn Ayr in the Tunnocks Cup :)

Dates tbc so might clash with International games I`m already going to.

My friend knows a Wrexham director who has said we are playing the reserves, so you won't be missing much!

I'd defo rather watch a Wrexham game than Louis Capaldi again. 

I live 5 minutes from their stadium but can’t think of nothing worse than watching them, at least Capaldi is a laugh.

He was distinctly unfunny a few weeks ago.

Proper game of football this. End to end for most the game

Can’t decide who wants it more to be fair.

Joe Cole, hands down the worst signing Liverpool ever made. There have been worse players but the combination of the money we paid him (£90k a week in 2010), the hype and the appalling performances, I despise the little shit.

I personally think they should move that game to pre-season and scrap extra time; it was a decent game for a neutral but ultimately one both teams could do without with the league at the weekend!

I'm still undecided on VAR, early days and plenty of opportunity to tweak it but the one thing I can't stand is not flagging offside straight away (I know this is not going to apply in the Premier League). A few of them tonight were obvious, no need to let play go on.

Disappointed to have lost the game but plenty of positives. We were much better than against United. Far more compact and organised. I think we are probably better with three men in the middle. Kante was world class last night and he makes a huge difference when in the team. I thought Jorginho, Pulisic and Emerson all played well too. Unlucky. Tammy will have to pick himself up. A goal in the next game would help. Hopefully we're fit and ready for Sunday to get our first win.

I reckon they're going to be an awesome team before the end of the season, much better than people were expecting. 

They might take a month or two before it properly clicks.

As you say, it will take a while to gel. Hopefully we can get the results in the meantime. Still lots of players to return from injury. If we can get the centre forward scoring goals I'm confident we'll do alright.

it's the back line I'd be most worried about. The front & middle will come together OK in time.

Liverpool were well off their best last night yet they got in loads of times, far more than their normal against one of the better teams.

Maybe. I think it was just an open game. There is room for improvement but LFC's front three is still one of the best, so. When Rudiger is fit he will tighten things up a bit.

Personally I'd say striker is your main issue. I'm not sure Abraham is ready to be Chelsea's main man. His movement was poor at times and he wasn't very clinical (it could have just been an off day). Giroud also not good enough to start regularly, although he is a decent option. 

I was very impressed with Pulisic though. He was always playing with purpose. I was surprised when he came off to be honest but maybe Lampard was just conscious of his fitness.

What did Joe Cole say?

Insinuated that maybe VAR didn't overrule the pen as it was a big night for the ref.

 Agreed. I want Tammy to do well but out of all the youngsters he's the one I worry most about. It's unforgiving upfront. You have to score.

I think Mason Mount has huge potential @jyoung, even in his cameo last night. Kante is a monster of a player too. I have a friend who supports Derby who really rates Tomori too but I haven't seen anything of him. I thought Chelsea were the better team yesterday, much better than against United.

Mount is the one who looks most comfortable already. We won't have to wait around for him to develop as the standard is already reasonably high. Tomori looked at ease when he came on yesterday and I'm looking forward to seeing more of him.
