    If we hadn't made the signings we have I would say we were in trouble for this match, but I think Torres, Mata and Meireles give us the edge we need to beat them. I don't think the majority of our players will be fazed by the hostile atmosphere tonight either.

    I think we would still win with our old team and ancelotti tbh, but since we have a new manager with a faster tempo and attacking philosophy we need more flair with our players, hence why we bought mata and meireles. Soldado looks dangerous though, scored 5 goals in la liga this season, I thought their attack was finished after selling villa, mata and silva but looks like I was wrong. Pablo Hernandez and soldado are pretty good. They'll be 3rd in la liga this year again.

    Torres has been pitiful.

    Crap game. Just get the feeling both sides are happy settling for a point. At times Chelsea have been in promising positions but haven't committed enough men going forward to capitalize. Very cautious.

    hostile? Not particularly. Like a morgue at Old Trafford last night and it doesn't sound much louder at Valencia tonight.

    The Valencia stadium looks half empty.

    Conclusions from first half:

    Canales is a very good little player, his movement is so difficult to pick up.

    Luiz is mental.

    Lampard's having a tough time.

    Ramires is superb.

    You guys should sack AVB, he has already exceeded expectations by surviving for more than 5 games at Chelsea.

    Thank you, I think we should have subbed anelka for malouda tbh, besides the build up to the goal he was pretty dire, bosingwa had a good game though, in a seasons time people will be saying he's the best RB in the league.
    Sell kalou. That is all I can say, what does he have to his game that our other strikers/wingers do not have and more?

    You guys did well up until that Pen, should have won... but what happened at the end? The ref blows for free kick, and then blows for the end of the game? seriously. But your players shouldn't have argued...
