    Finally started last night!!

    Right I think this could be our best XI, but with Torres/Anelka.

    Maybe Ivanovic at RB to make slightly more defensive when needed?
    wasn't his best game tbh, his mistake with the back heel almost drew them level in the first half. just need to start him for a few games in a row...

    dno why we can't play 4-3-3 with that line up, let zhirkov play in his natural role. i'd like to see us try this one;

    Cech
    Ivanovic Luiz Terry A.Cole
    Essien
    Ramires Lampard
    Anelka Torres Zhirkov

    With Malouda, Kalou and Drogba as potential subs for the front three and Bosingwa for Ivanovic depending on the opposition's defence.

    Three less than Shevchenko in his first four PL games.

    He'll be a different player next season though with a season off to recharge his batteries.

    Predictions for the game then guys? Apparently Torres dropped to the bench, lets see he might score when the Copenhagen players are tired?

    Can't see Copenhagen doing anything at all tbf. Should be a walkover, hoping it's a half decent game/performance though.

    lol. He's fitted in well to this 4-4-2 imo. Zhirkov's been awesome :coma:

    Only just switched on. Copenhagen away kit is utterly delicious, hoping to find it at a reasonable price somewhere online :sogood:

    Was an okay game. Shame no goals though.

    Seriously though, this is our year. Bring on Barca next.

    Edit:

    @ Irush. Damng, the kid looks like Kaka too.

    As far as I can see, being a Chelsea fan these days seems to consist purely of watching Fernando Torres not score. :facepalm2:

    I fell asleep during the latter stages of last night's game. Hardly a thriller. But at least we're through...

    Missed half of yesterday's game cos of footy, but saw that Copenhagen nearly scored off the post.

    Brilliant news on the new lad coming to the Blues, hope he turns out to be the new star in the Premier League.

    Ah, I just hope Fernando scores real soon, he's been getting closer to a goal with every game he plays. Fingers crossed that he scores it sooner rather than later :P
