    Thoughts for the line up tomorrow? I'd like to see the following:


    Cech
    Ivanovic Carvalho Terry A.Cole
    Mikel
    Essien-----------Malouda
    Lampard
    Anelka--Drogba


    Choices based on recent performances really. I don't think Deco or J.Cole have been particularly impressive, whereas Malouda has done alright.

    I really don't trust Mikel enough for him to play in the big games - he was terrible at times against Arsenal.

    And yes, the away kit is cursed..purely 'cos it's so bloody ugly.

    but Essien is so much more effective in a central role. who else can play DM? Ballack?

    He wasn't much worse than Essien. And what's this about not trusting Mikel in big matches? Both FA Cup finals against United and Everton he was fantastic.

    Ballack + Essien likely to start tomorrow though. Joey or Deco? Or neither?

    Mikel is an underrated player if ever there was one. He's one of those players that allows others to thrive.....

    i'm a huge fan of Mikel. he's only like 22 too, he needs to be nurtured and given as much game time as possible. i hate using Essien as a DM, such a waste of his talent.

    Well it's his best position in the diamond...

    Mikel's arguably a waste of talent too when playing in defensive midfield.

    Mikel just is too lazy on the ball, seems to get caught in possession quite a lot - in the Arsenal game he was very frustrating in that respect. I'm just never filled with confidence whenever I see him playing - admittedly he does have games where he's brilliant but often I just think he's a little too lax..

    As for the game, I think we'll scrape a narrow win.

    Very poor first half from us. Apart from the goal we've done very little. Slow on and off the ball. No urgency. Trying to stroll around players.

    Really need to up the game in the second half or I could see us conceding 1-2 more quite easily.

    Deco off for Joey Cole at half time I think. He's usually crap Deco, and Joe Cole can add a bit more pace and flair to the game.

    It's not like he could get out of the way of it, it shouldn't be classed as a handball. As much as I dislike to concede goals, it was the correct decision.

    mate did you see it? he saw the ball and drew both his hands up. if he wanted to avoid it all he had to do was move his legs, not his arms. even the commentators agreed it was handball.
