Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard as Chelsea manager on 26/01/2021.
The next night, was his first Premiership match.
He dropped Mason Mount, Rhys James, Tammy Abraham, Billy Gilmour and Andreas Christensen.
All of whom were in good form.
All of whom had come through our Academy.
Tammy was even a hat-trick hero in the previous game!
We trudged to a dreary goalless draw at home to Wolves.
The last 10 minutes we actually started to see some pace and variety injected and chances created – because Mason Mount had been introduced. (He had even been made captain in what was Frank’s last game).
However, being a typical football fan…….
IF Tuchel repents, sees the error of his ways, and brings success with a base layer of Academy acolytes, then we’ll support him ever more! 😉
Frank Lampard’s place in our hearts is ever assured…
