Sixer’s Sevens: post Mourinho Chelsea quickest out of the blocks

Malcolm Dawson writes…my fear, shared I am sure by many others of a red and white persuasion, was that following Jose Mourinho’s departure from Stamford Bridge the current Champions would begin to play with a freedom of expression that had seemed to be lacking from the start of the season. He may be a successful manager but he can’t be the easiest of people to work under. Take him out of the equation and would this see his former squad start to show the talent for which the are highly paid. It would seem so and they were hard to live with in the opening skirmishes today. Here is where you normally get Pete Sixsmith‘s seven word summing up or occasionally, as today, those of his substitute. M Salut, otherwise known as Colin Randall was at The Bridge and it is his words that follow.

Dec 19 2015 Chelsea 3 (2) SAFC 1 (0) * Fought like tigers. Undone by woeful start

Dec 12 2015 SAFC 0 (0) Watford (1) 1 * Disappointingly insipid and cannot complain about result

Dec 5 2015 *Arsenal (1) 3 SAFC (1) 1: Deserved better but couldn’t take our chances

Nov 28 2015 SAFC (0) 2 Stoke City (0) 0 Totally unrecognisable from the last home game

Nov 23 2015 *Crystal Palace (0) 0 Sunderland (0) 1: Winning ugly but winning. Sam’s the Man*

Nov 7 2015: SAFC (0) 0 Southampton (0) 1 A truly dismal display that heralds relegation

Nov 1 2015: Everton (2) 6 SAFC (1) 2 The usual post-derby anti-climax knocks us flat or Quite clear why Advocaat decamped to Holland or The defending was like Halloween: absolutely frightening

Oct 25 2015: SAFC (1) 3 Newcastle United (0) 0 West Bromwich Albion Nothing better than the joy of six

Oct 17 2015: West Bromwich Albion (0) 1 SAFC (0) 0 * At least the pies were good quality to which Sixer adds Another Pantilimon error means still no win

Oct 3 2015: SAFC (2) 2 West Ham United (1) 2 Dick can be proud of his (?) players

September 26 2015: Manchester United (1) 3 SAFC (0) 0 Routine for United thanks to defensive errors

September 22 2015: League Cup: SAFC (0) 1 Manchester City (4) City’s brilliance aided by pathetic Sunderland defending or Defence horribly exposed by a rampant City or Not on the same planet as City

September 19 2015: AFC Bournemouth (2) 2 SAFC (0) 0 Couldn’t recover from a truly abysmal start

September 13 2015: SAFC (0) 0 Tottenham Hotpsur (0) 1 Vastly improved performance not reflected by result

August 29 2015: Aston Villa (2) 2 SAFC (1) 2 * M’Vila and Lens snatch a shaky point

August 25 2015: League Cup 2nd round: SAFC (3) 6 Exeter City (3) 3 Young hearts run free in second half

August 22 2015: SAFC (0) 1 Swansea City (1) 1 Gloom lifting after a more determined performance

August 15 2015: SAFC (0) 1 Norwich City (2) 3 I’ve seen some shockers in my time …

  1. No disgrace in losing to Arsenal and Chelsea away but losing to Watford at home will send us down . We had chances in all three games but the scores are what they are while the points total is zero .
