“The Definition of Madness” Chelsea FanCast #869

Stamford Chidge and Jonathan Kydd are joined by Dayne Whittle and Sam Inkersole from Football.London to look back at the 1-0 defeat away to Man City and ahead to Tuesday night's match against Brighton.

On the show tonight, in part one, we look at Tuchel’s questionable team selection where the defence worked but we struggled up front with poor performances from Pulisic and Ziyech.

In part two we look at the good and bad of Romelu Lukaku who had a poor game on Saturday, before drilling down on the systemic issues with Chelsea’s failure to get their strikers firing. And while we say auf wiedersehen to the Premier League title, we explain why it’s not all gloom and doom after a 1-0 loss to City away.

In part three we have a chat with Dylan Polk from Carefree Louisiana who will be telling us about the Mardi Gras weekend they are planning which just happens to coincide with the Club World Cup in February. And following that we have the results of this week’s Fannies for the City match; some Discord questions and loads of emails to read out.

In part four we round up the show with our preview of the Brighton v Chelsea match on Tuesday night.
