What We Learned from The QPR Match : 15/9

What We Learned from The QPR Match : 15/9

Today, Chelsea met with West London rivals Queens Park Rangers. With most of the attention being on Ferdinand and John Terry, the game certainly lived up to its expectations. A feisty encounter resulted in a 0-0 draw between the two sides. This result, in my mind, is unacceptable.

There are many things we can take away from this match and use to continue our league success :

1. Torres – No ego is bigger than the club.
2. Moses – Better than Ramires
3. Ramires – Not a RW
4. Terry and Cole – Consistent under criticism
5. RDM – Poor tactics
6. Lampard and Mikel pairing – Horrible
7. Sturridge – Should start as a winger or up top
8. Bertrand – Not a LW
9. David Luiz – Calmer than before, but not as good as Cahill.
10. Romeu and Oscar deserve playing time

1. Torres: Not everything revolves around you, Nando. Storming off the pitch as 28 year old is unacceptable. You cannot do that, I don’t care if you’re John Terry or Patrick Bamford, you don’t storm off the pitch. You’re a great player, but just because times aren’t the best or tactics aren’t fitting you that doesn’t mean going straight to the locker room is acceptable. You made some great runs and had a few goes, but you were below par. You should be benched for the next game due to this action.
2. Moses – Our best RW at the moment. Played for 20-30 minutes or so and was sensational. Never made a mistake and was very crisp with his touches and movement. Released a great shot that was saved by Cesar and a wonderful cross to Hazard, who blasted it over. Moses is a great signing and has shown that he deserves a spot in the team.

3. Ramires: Not a RW, he’s a midfielder and his stats showed that he is one. He played as a RW a few times last year and was impressive, but he is still not a RW like Moses or Sturridge. We must play him in a more central position.

4. John Terry and Cole: Good performances from our Captain and Left back. Showed that no matter what they’re dealing with off the field, they bring their best game on the field. Praise for these men should be at a high.

5. RDM: Too defensively minded and too narrow. Poor lineup as Moses was left out and Mata wasn’t even on the bench. Cahill deserved a spot in the lineup and Sturridge should have been brought in earlier.

6. Lampard and Mikel pairing: Horrendous pair, it was like “watching a tragedy movie for 90 mins” (quote from Twitter) and the user is right. They are not the pair we should use. They both either attack together or defend together. One should sit back while one attacks, always. Romeu-Lamps, Meireles-Lamps, Oscar-Lamps, Essien-Lamps would be great pairings, but 2 of those can’t be achieved. Need a better pair there.

7. Sturridge: Danny deserves a spot in the XI or at least more playing time. He was much better than Torres, today and played in his natural CF position. He certainly can perform as a winger, too.

8. Bertrand: Strictly a left back, RDM’s obsession with making him a LW is a poor one and he should keep Ryan as a back-up to Cole.

9. David Luiz: Calmer than ever and playing great in the back, but Gary Cahill is still the better of the two and has a better relationship with JT. Cahill and JT work perfectly together and both know their place. Luiz is calm, but still makes those mistakes that cost us.

10. Romeu and Oscar: Should get more playing time. They both are eager to play and are full of skill and talent. Failing to play them is a bad way to do things at the Bridge. Both are composed and mellow with the ball. They don’t make many errors and could replace Mikel.

This is what I think we can draw from the QPR match. Do let me know what you think about the match and all these issues! Thanks!
