Our resident Chelsea supporters here in the Football Transfer Tavern are counting down the days right now but counting down the days until what I hear you cry?
Well, they’re counting down the days until the time in which this Chelsea squad grow a pair as a few of our hardened Blues fans have quoted while turning it around and forgetting this dreadful start to the campaign altogether.
So far this term, Jose Mourinho’s men have only achieved victories over West Bromwich Albion, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Arsenal and Walsall while losing to Manchester City, Crystal Palace, Everton and FC Porto.
In what is very much uncharted territory for Mourinho who himself has admitted other fans will be laughing at his and the Blues’ predicament right now, the signs are that Chelsea’s squad aren’t responding with this dreadful run continuing on in to October.
With Southampton visiting Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening, that won’t be the easiest fixture for the Blues to navigate also with Ronald Koeman continuing to get the best out of a relatively small squad on the south coast so it’s fair to say our Chelsea fans are a little bit anxious right now.
For many, the performance away at Porto on Tuesday evening was anything but horrendous but unfortunately it was marred by a lack of concentration on two occasions where Andre Andre and Maicon struck the Portuguese side’s goals.
With Mourinho having claimed prior to the game that there’s no longer any “untouchables” in his squad, this is one of the rare times in which the Blues boss hasn’t opted to protect his players.
With this theme in mind, we’ve today devised a list of who we believe to be the five most disappointing Chelsea players so far this 2015/16 campaign.
