    Dunno either, we should just start with one of the two up top. Kalou and Anelka on either side.

    I really can't stand Bosingwa anymore. I wish we can start Alex as centreback next time and shift Ivanovic to the right. Bosingwa should have been able to deal with that cross. Despite the diving, Torres is showing signs of improvement. Regarding Evra, I don't mind penalty or freekick as long as he got red. With someone like Fabio playing at leftnack for the 2nd leg would have been so useful. Jesus Christ though, it was weird how Rafael got injured trying to block off Drogba like that. That sucks. Had Torres scored that Bicycle kick when he did that skill and passed to Zhirkov for the return. Would have been quality. And dang. Valencia played better at right than Rafael.
    Totally agreed. Bosingwa's positioning for that goal was a joke...Ivanovic is better, even off form...

    The only way that will work is if you play:


    ...........Torres....Drogba..... ......
    Winger.......................... ..Winger
    ..............Eissen..Raimeres.. ........
    A.Cole.......................... ......Ivanovic
    .............Terry........Luiz.. .............
    ....................Cech........ .............

    You currently have no right wingers and I dont think Malouda or Zhirkov are suited/able to play in such a 4-4-2

    You do realise you have to score..? And ideally you'd score 2.

    Utd have one of the best defences in the country (if not in the world) and they will only commit 3 to 4 players forward at a time (who have enough quality to rip you apart on the counter btw).

    You need to pen them in, nulify the counter and score early.

    Once you've scored (or scored two) the counter would be the best way.

    It's madness.

    Torres has never been able to play with a partner upfront.

    Did Benayoun add some creativity when he came on?
    Yep. Massive improvement on Mikel... actually looked like he wanted to make something happen, and he did... put torres in on goal a couple've times. Looks like the two of them need to play together.

    The entire team was static though. painful stuff.... this must be what it feels like to watch wigan week in week out.

    Benayoun was really help today! Him and Torres really need to play, Torres came close a few times via Benayoun through balls. Think Benayoun and Torres must play wednesday. Off the bench if not starting.

    Either that or not watching the last few games :lolwut:


    -------Cech----------
    Ivanovic--Alex-JT-Cole

    Ramires--Essien--Lampard

    Anelka--Drogba--Zhirkov

    4-3-3 with this team, bit iffy on Alex cause of his fitness, but someone other than Bosingwa has to play at RB >_>

    Ferreira looked good last night

    Guys, what happens when Daniel Sturridge, PvA, Bruma all return from loan? There's MacEacran, Bertrand too

    I mean if we're selling and buying this season, I think we need to start getting Sturridge involved fantastic run of games at Bolton for him. JMac's class.

    Completely agree with that team to start. However, if we get to 60 minutes and things aren't working out I'd like to see Torres and Benayoun in tandem again.

    There's no doubting the task we face tomorrow is huge, but we only need 2 goals at the end of the day. It would be typical if we finally come good, in a season where we've been quite frankly terrible.

    Come on Chels!!

    Think Benayoun should play IMO, your midfield lacks that creative spark IMO and Benayoun's only the real player of providing that spark, very underrated. A 4-3-3 with Torres Anelka Malouda/Zhirkov with Benayoun Lampard and Essien/Mikel/Ramires for me
