Just as Chelsea supporters here in the Football Transfer Tavern thought the Blues were starting to turn it around this season after a good mini run in November, then came AFC Bournemouth.
Performing a famous 0-1 smash and grab victory at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening, a lot of our Blues fans are saying it’s rock bottom right now with Chelsea still just TWO points off the Premier League relegation zone with only 15 points accumulated from 15 games so far.
It’s been an absolute disaster of a Premier League campaign for Jose Mourinho’s team who will play in the Champions League tomorrow knowing that a home win (or draw depending on Dynamo Kiev’s result) against FC Porto will see them through to the knock-out round.
But despite going better in Europe, it’s their repeated failures in the Premier League that are starting to really annoy Chelsea supporters with their players not looking like they know what to do to get themselves out of the mire.
Questions have to be raised about just how motivated these players are to get themselves up and away from 14th place with the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard and Diego Costa far used to clawing back points within the Premier League’s top four.
With this current situation being uncharted territory for not only Jose Mourinho but several of Chelsea’s playing staff, it appears the Blues aren’t coping well at all and may continue to struggle as the winter rumbles on.
With that in mind, we’ve devised a list of FIVE Chelsea players who Blues supporters need to bid goodbye to in the January transfer window with their contributions being close to non-existent at the moment.
