More questions than answers right now Slav

There were many big questions that need answering this evening but let’s just take two of them: 1/ Why was Michail Antonio taken out of the right back position and shoved on the left wing? 2/ Why did players – eight of whom had not played at the weekend look so knackered and out of […]

In Slav we trust …but he’s got this wrong!

Let’s get something straight! We deserved nothing last night but the simple truth is Diego Costa should not have been on the pitch to score Chelsea’s winner.

How we rated the Irons against Chelsea

ClaretandHugh’s Niall McDonald rates the Irons Adrian: Two very sharp saves which kept us in the game before Costa’s winner 6 Antonio: Do we blame the player for a clumsy foul which led to the penalty – or manager for once again playing him there?
