I mean the players out there have to do a job but when you sit by far your two most important players then you are asking for something like this to happen. Inexcusable to approach a game this way. Not that we had much chance to catch United anyway but to piss it away at home to freaking QPR is unacceptable.

Despite Rafa's poor decision of team selection that doesn't excuse the poor play on the pitch. We need to stick with Rafa at least for the rest of the season. QPR defended well and Chelsea had a miserable time breaking them down. We had a couple of close chances that would have changed the outcome. Torres to me is the reason this team is in the place it's in NOT Rafa. Hopefully, Demba Ba will start putting some balls in the back of the net. The play yesterday starts and stops with the players on the pitch. No excuses not to beat that QPR side with the quality we have.

I agree with you 100%... you will have to get used to the fact that Rafa uses squad rotation a good bit and against a team like QPR, that team should have won. I'm sure he wanted to get a look at some of those other players and figured this was a lay up... not saying he's perfect and his moves are always right, but after watching the replay, the team had their chances...Ivanovic alone could/should have won it...

He brings that on himself when he lets a Make-A-Wish kid select his lineup. Our play has been better, that's obvious. The sad part is that it seemed as if Chelsea fans were starting to go easier on him and then yesterday happens. Is he just trolling them?
