Right being honest, I had to work this weekend and have record the WHOLE game on Chelsea TV last night against Swansea and for the life of me, I cannot understand some of the over reaction from some Chelsea fans to the result!.

I have read allsorts of crap going around the net and ON HERE about the performance and the usual criticism that is aimed at Fernando Torres and John Mikel Obi and it's just ridiculous to be honest and some of you should be ashamed of yourselves!

For God sake! Swansea will win more games this season at home than they lose and they are a good side under Michael Laudrup. In saying that, apart from their goal and a cross come shot from Dyer, tell me when they forced Petr Cech into making a notable save in the game!?

Swansea set out playing in the same formation as Chelsea so it was always going to be an open game with Chelsea's three attacking midfielders up against their two in the middle and the same with Swansea's against ours.

Michu the bloke they are all raving about did hardly anything in the game and Danny Graham and the other bloke who came on hardly got a look in either.

The Swansea goal was well taken and looking at the replay from behind the goal. Cech has three defenders within his line of sight and because of that reacts too late to stop the ball from going in the net. If anything you need to hold your hands up and give credit where credit is due and to say it was well placed and a great finish!.

We could be critical about the fact that he had time and space to shoot from there but we were back defending when men behind the ball and when the ball came out to him on the edge of the box, we couldn't get anyone near him quick enough.

Like I said, apart from that, we had defended well in the game and Cech never really looked under pressure at all. So why are we so negative? There was no Ivanovic at right back, No JT there to organise and no David Luiz and we DID well!.

As for the crap I am reading once again about Torres, do me a favour people please! He had one chance on goal with a header that he never had a chance to get underneath properly but that was about it. He had no other service to give him an opportunity to score.

His work rate and link up play once again was good and he continued right to the end. I would understand all the people that want him sold if he was being given the right service and being put through one on one with the keeper and missing every single chance - but some of you people are going way over the top!

Then there is the abuse of Mikel and the continued negativity about him being part of the team. I want to tell you people this. In my eyes, Mikel is an integral part of our midfield and has the natural ability to always find himself in the right areas to break up possession and play.

Can someone tell me what Mikel did wrong on Saturday and I am talking about people who were at the game or watched THE WHOLE game?

Listen, let's just have some perspective here on where we find ourselves at the moment. We all know why we lost against United last week so that doesn't count. We had a dodgy display at QPR and dropped two points and Swansea away, especially after having to travel to the Ukraine and having to play two amazing games against United including TWO HOURS last Wednesday night, was always going to be hard so a point is not a bad result.

I agree it is disappointing to throw away the three points after being a goal up but I cannot complain about their goal because we couldn't do alot about it.

As for RDM's substitutions, he made them because of fatigue and to counter the fact that as soon as we scored, Swansea switched to 4-4-2 and Sturridge and Bertrand came on for their pace out wide to protect our full backs.

Let just accept the point, the fact that it was NOT as bad as people are making out, get off Torres and Mikel's back and get behind the lads for a big, big game on Wednesday!

Call yourselves Chelsea fans!

Carefree & KTBFFH!
