The Blackburn manager, Sam Allardyce, didn’t have any good words for his team after their 5-0 defeat to Chelsea, and bemoaned the team’s lack of understanding, especially in the second half.
“The second half was pathetic,” said Allardyce. “I didn’t see that coming, I felt we had set our stall out to frustrate Chelsea and it worked very well in the first half.
“Then it went pathetically wrong, all our tactics went out the window when the second goal went in.
“I am bitterly disappointed with the players’ lack of understanding when the goals went in.
“Chelsea took advantage of everything they were given and there were some great goals.”
This result leaves Blackburn just two points above the relegation zone, and having conceded 24 goals in just nine games, Big Sam seriously needs to do something about his defence.
His team have now lost their last seven away games in a row, and with a match coming up against Man Utd next weekend, Blackburn are in serious danger of dropping into the bottom three.
