The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern haven’t had the best few weeks. The Blues are struggling at present, with their Premier League ambitions now dashed despite optimism earlier in the campaign.
Indeed, now even a top-four finish is looking extremely unlikely, and it’s fair to say that that simply isn’t good enough.
There are more than a few reasons that can be given for Chelsea’s poor form. Dissapointing managerial performances certainly can’t be ignored, but what have got our resident Blues even more frustrated are the poor individual performances. Despite having some of Europe’s best in the squad, Chelsea’s key men simply haven’t been up to par lately.
Thibaut Courtois, who is rated at £45 million by Transfer Markt, is included in that. The Belgian, though unstoppable on his day, hasn’t had the same effect as someone like David De Gea on Chelsea’s season so far.
This is something that Chelsea fans seemingly aren’t happy about, because they’ve taken a moment to slam the Belgian on Twitter after a video posted on Chelsea’s official page showed Pedro scoring a deft chip over the goalkeeper.
Whilst many are praising Pedro for the goal, for many, it seems the onus falls on Courtois for not saving it – and it’s fair to say that fans aren’t very happy. A few are even calling for him to lose his place in the Blues’ first team.
Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
Omg..Thibauit is not good enough

Courtois, Pedro and Alonso shouldn’t play against Barcelona. Please This 3-4-3 formation isn’t working anymore. A 4-1-4-1 formation would do wonders with the type of players that the team has.

Courtois on his bum again. Lets hope we play with some attack minded players this week

What was that from Courtois?

This is how you know Courtois' heart is no longer at Chelsea. His heart is elsewhere. See him been beaten by such a cheeky goal.
Replace him with Willy Caballero

Yes he can only score our useless keeper that goal
