    Hmm. I'm mulling over what a team without Terry, Lamps and Drogba would look like... and Mikel and Essien... due to injuries/suspensions or whatever.

    Malouda - Torres - Sturridge/Anelka

    Zhirkov/McEachran - Ramires - Benayoun

    A. Cole - Alex - Luiz - Ivanovic

    Hmm. Could work. Feels lightweight in midfield though.
    Move David Luiz in to midfield with Benayoun/McEachran and Ramires, Luiz has played DM before and he's got some power and strength. Then we can play Rajkovic or Bosingwa/Ferreira comes in at RB and Ivanovic moves in to the middle :P.

    Malouda/Zhirkov - Torres - Sturridge/Anelka

    McEachran/Benayoun - Luiz - Ramires

    A.Cole - Alex - Ivanovic/Rajkovic - Bosingwa/Ferreira/Ivanovic.

    We'd move Luiz not Alex since Luiz has actually played DM.

    Apparently we're loosing Zhirkov this week to Anzhi in Russia. Could this entice AVB to dive in to the market? Cause of his versitility to be able to play; LB, LW, CM

    zhirkov wasnt any good. i think we have enough players for the season. maybe get modric, but 40m is too much. 30 should be the price.

    Hmm.. I think for CM we have plently of players. LB we have Bertrand, Cole and Van Aanholt, for LW we got Malouda, Sturridge and Kalou(?). But I would welcome an addition to the squad

    aahh, I had high hopes for Zhirkov. Too bad.

    I guess this means the money will fund a move for another player.

    Such a shame about Zhirkov. He could have done great things but sadly never had the opportunity to shine, not with Ashley Cole and Malouda playing so well in his positions. In fact he deserves to be a starter not a sub, so in that way i'm happy that he'll have the opportunity to do that at another club. And £15m for him isn't a bad deal, we're only making a £3m loss. I'm very intrigued by who AVB will bring in now.

    He'll always be the greatest left winger in the game for us

    haha, I think I jinxed him tbh. Resisting the temptation to post a new one of McEachran/Luiz.

    Man, I'm really worried that Luiz wont start as often this season... AVB has hardly seen him this preseason.

    Surely this was down to having a rest post Copa America - Ramires has hardly played either

    I always start him in FM over Malouda xD. His replacement will be interesting though.

    Don't talk about McEachran and Luiz we need them on song xD.

    That's the first thing I was worried about with AVB not having seen Luiz this pre season , Rajkovic has more of a chance to start than Luiz and same with Ramires. I hope we start with Luiz though lol. Is it me or did Alex get less minutes this pre season and apparently Juventus are coming in with a £6 million offer for him too. From the looks of things, we could be seeing, Bosingwa - Ivanovic - Terry - Cole as our back 4?

    Ramires played every game for Brazil but Luiz was on the bench for every game, so he's still "fresh" though.

    Ramires has played often in the copa america, so he's probably match fit. Although he's taken a bit of a break now. Luiz just sat on the bench, which is why I'm worried.

    In other news, looks like the pato transfer 'saga' will continue. highly highly doubt this will happen.

    Sturridge/Malouda - Torres/Drogba - Pato would be unreal though.

    i doubt that the pato deal will happen but it would be nice if it did. At least we are looking to the future these days and not just buying players passed there prime (shevchenko). In pre season we have used the youngsters a lot more and have signed two young players so i'm happy with the club outlook atm. On another point how do people feel about us vs rangers

    Can't wait for this week's game against Rangers and even more interested to see who AVB uses for his starting 11 against Stoke.

    Do we need anymore strikers? But we will be offloading Anelka or Kalou in the process..
