    Do you guys think J.Cole will sign a new contract?
    yes he wants to stay (albeit for higher wages), but the club are not willing to offer him a new contract. i'd be annoyed to let him go on a free transfer.

    Everyone knows Drogba will start [if fit] before we even enter that debate.
    He was fit and didn't start against Utd. I win.

    He missed a few days of training last week said Ancelotti... so not 100% fit. Ancelotti said Didier was going to start too, so it was very very surprising. Think we all win!

    he's actually been playing with a hernia or something. although i think his omission was more to do with going with the side that thrashed Villa, rather than him being fit or not.

    I'd say if we were desperate for a striker he would have started... We've got the luxury of having a very good second striker in Anelka though, so if he wasn't 100% fit Ancelotti doesn't have to start him. We don't need to rush any players back early from injury... unlike a couple other clubs round us may be forced to do.

    Hernia? :lolwut: Ex-colleague of mine got that, fairly old fella. Was attributed to his poor lifting technique or something. Stupid goon left it until it got out of the control. Ended up with Christmas off on full pay but it meant I was doing the early shifts so yeah. :cool:

    Think Stoke City at home could actually be the hardest game we have left in terms of wanting to win every fixture.

    Every other side will want to WIN the game... Stoke don't have as much to play for, so will come, shut up shop and be pretty content to play out for a draw.

    You have 3 banker home wins left, you'll win or lose the league away at Spurs and Liverpool.

    If you do manage to crumble points away to Stoke, Bolton or Wigan at home i'll be amazed

    Yup, we've got to win those three. Stoke and Bolton won't be easy though, and if we need a victory against Wigan final day of the season, we'll do it. Can't see anything more than 2-3 points altogether away to Spurs and Liverpool. Just have to hope United **** up away to Citeh and Blackburn/Sunderland.

    You know Fergie said last season that our squad was too old? Our side on Saturday was younger than theirs by two years. :teehee:

    We had 4 players on the pitch that are over 35. So its a little skewed. Overall your squad is older than ours.

    Ancelotti is the nicest manager to manage a Top 4 team since...ever. I mean the guy came in was given a squad of players. He did not buy anyone. His back room staff were picked for him. He has never complained about bad decisions and has taken defeat with grace. This is what a manager should be like. If only he did not manage Chelsea I'd say good luck in the title run in. But I hope you guys crash and burn. :yep:

    Ranieri was fine. What about Hiddink?

    You can always wish Wolves luck. Mick McCarthy is probably my favourite manager outside of Chelsea right now. Before that it used to be Nigel Worthington for Norwich.

    anyone can get them, even if you're fit. the abdominal wall may already have been weak at birth, or can weaken over time from strenuous activities (like weight lifting) or injury.
