15 herculean efforts by our players and manager tonight.

Pressure surely ramps up onto Lampard going out so early in a cup to a side so decimated by the FA

Pretty lousy goal to concede with Emerson in no man's land. Would be nice if we could go 90 minutes without a serious lapse in defence.

Was bizarre. Backed himself to get the interception, whiffed completely and Lamela has a tap in.

Just get goal-side.
Defensive duties should always come first when one goal up with 5 mins to play. Baffling what goes on back there.

You just have a particular laser beam focus on Chelsea's defence and keeper, often just being negative for the sake of it.

It's a bit weird man.
Because they didn't upgrade the defence enough and it's showing? They also lumped money on an unproven keeper. They deserve to be criticised

" Lampard goes to Werner, who is getting treatment for cramp, to ask if he wants to/can take a penalty. He says no. " James Olley

Not good when one of your better pen takers says no but probably right if he was cramping

Cramping or intimidated by the 17,000 empty white wall confronting him

Will be interesting to see him against sides like Burnley. He is young, but seemed very suspect in the air even before we had 6 foot attacker on the pitch
He's 28? I've seen a bit of his repertoire and he can save a ball, but he tends to punch back to the danger area.
