Chelsea suffered defeat at the hands of Porto on Matchday two of the Champions League and it's yet another demonstration of how un-organised Chelsea have become without John Terry. Enough is enough, we MUST put him straight back into the side on Saturday!

Let's not try and smooth things over here as I have really had enough of our defensive displays this season. We are a shower of shit at the back and a total shambles and it's embarrassing. 

There are no voices on the pitch, just as there never seemed to be tonight, there is no natural leader out there organising things and getting on a people to lift themselves and someone who can provide inspiration to the others on the pitch with him. 

Yes, Chelsea were unlucky with Diego Costa first hitting the crossbar, then to have a BLATANT handball not given in injury time which the replays confirmed, but to be in a position to whinge and moan about that just to come away with a point simply isn't good enough. 

You have to hand it to Porto, they played well and caused Chelsea plenty of problems. Once again we have Azmir Begovic to thank for keeping us in the game at key moments. 

However, we should be going on there tonight, with all our experience of the Champions League games and big away games such as these, knowing exactly what it's going to take to get the job done. To start compact, to dig in and frustrate the home side and look to hit them on the counter attack. 

Were we compact? Did we frustrate Porto at any stage in the game? Did we hit them on the counter and get in behind their back four? There my friends was the problem tonight. 

I did not agree with Jose Mourinho's team selection. How on earth the likes of Matic, Oscar and Hazard were all dropped and Branislav Ivanovic who has been our worst defender by far all season; remains on the pitch as our Captain is beyond me, it really is!

Mikel was brought into the team to provide cover next to Cesc Fabregas in front of our back four but time and time again Porto caused us problems by moving the ball out wide. Ramires was brought in for Eden Hazard and didn't have the same impact on the game as he did against Newcastle, then Hazard was then brought on too late by the Manager. 

I never thought I would ever say this but watching the BT Sport coverage of the game last night, I agreed 100% with Rio Ferdinand when he talked of Jose Mourinho's Chelsea always being full of leaders, full of integral players who everyone else looked towards for inspiration on nights like tonight and the voice on the pitch to organise. He stated that he looks at us now and it simply isn't there - you can't really argue with him can you? 

Even in attack we look laboured and too many times want to try poxy flicks and tricks to play people in through on goal or just in behind the opposition defence. We aren't quick enough to capitalise on opportunities when we win possession in our high block and have turned defence into attack with our opponents having players caught out of position. Our choices are bad at the moment compared to last season when we were clinical. 

There isn't alot right with what we are doing at the moment and it's costing us big time. Jose Mourinho can talk about last night being a better performance but it's still not good enough as we want excellent performances week in, week out. 

If you disagree with me here then fair enough but I implore you to watch the match again, look at the players arguing with each other, look at the frustration on their faces and just look at Diego Costa throw his arms into the air as Ivanovic wastes yet another good chance to swing the ball into the box. 

Something needs to be done and quickly and for me right now, I would remove Ivanovic and Zouma out of our back line for the next two games at least and bring in Rahman at left back, Azpilicueta over to right back and to bring back John Terry as Captain next to Gary Cahill. 

We need stability, we need organisation, we need a voice and most importantly of all if we are to pull ourselves out of this mess, we need a Leader!
