    Lukaku was fine. He got absolutely no service today though. Kalou and Malouda are the biggest waste of space there is. Only good thing they did all night was score their penalties. Our strikers must be gagging to play with mata.

    McEachran should've stayed on too... Kalou should've been subbed off. Glad we won the penalty shootout though.

    Luiz. :coma:

    Agreed. Kalou is terrible, Not quite sure whether malouda was even aiming at the goal. I think our back four did a good job tonight, and so did turnbull. Luiz is awesome in every game. If only he wasnt CB, as i do worry he'll do something crazy each time he gets the ball.

    Good job bringing lamps and JT on.

    I was there tonight, Lukaku showed promise but badly lacked fitness, even late in the second half he looked really really knackered. I was worried he'd try to take a penalty and struggle with the run-up!

    Luiz and Romeu were our best players imo

    We need to convert Luiz in to some sort of attacking midfielder cause of flair and bossness.

    i think it might have been due to his muscle cramp rather than lack of fitness.

    He's more brazillian than ramires lol. This guy and mata have been our best buys in recent seasons.

    Was speaking to my old man the other day and he said that Lukaku had the exact body shape as Drogba when he first started at Chelsea. I reckon Chelsea will make him a bit more trim, but he will learn from this experience that his fitness has to improve.

    Ah, I love the chelsea tv clips on youtube with brief glimpses into the players training. AVB looks like he has the perfect backroom staff. I wonder who that short, slightly tubby coach is with the medium-length curly hair. Looks like he's quite close to the players.

    I expect Mata, Anelka and Torres will be playing up front for us.

    I loved David Luiz jumping up and down after Didier's goal xD

    I think it's him who your on about.

    Yeah with Sturridge out for the game those 3 look likely with Drogba to come off the bench at some point. Interesting to see who gets picked in midfield cause apparently Oriol Romeu has impressed to be given a start. Expecting a Ramires - Lampard - Mikel or a Ramires - Mikel - Meireles tbh

    From watching the man united match I think we needed someone to sit back and break down the play like we usually do. I can see romeu starting, since we're facing swansea, then using lampard and ramires, lampard should play since we don't really need pace as much since chelsea are more technically able than swansea and will probably get us a goal. Torres will start if fit, mata and anelka too, I don't see kalou playing yet, he'll probably play later in the season or something when we pick up proper momentum like man united have.
    My prediction, 3-0 chelsea lampard, torres and mata/random defender from a set piece.

    I can't see Kalou playing anything but the FA and Carling Cup and maybe the premier league around New Years which again won't be possible cause he'll be with the Ivory Coast.

    Kalou had his chances in the Fulham game and before Sturridge returned from his ban.. He just isn't taking his chances.

    Lampard dropped, there was talk about that before the game. Mikel will hold which is a good thing. Torres, Mata and Anelka upfront. Now this is a team with pace, creativity and can hold themsleves at the back especially with Mikel in there.

    Lampard did play 70 mins with 10 men though just on Wednesday, where as Mikel, Ramires and Meireles were all rested so will all be much fresher.

    McEachran needs to be playing at least one half for me. Also think Romeu played very well Wednesday.

    I have a feeling McEachran will get at least 25-30 minutes in the second half, especially if the game is already wrapped up then as it should be.
