    yeh you forget the 7-2 against Sunderland. they've all been very promising results.

    i think we can try out a 4-4-2 this saturday to see how it works out. anything but the diamond...it renders j.cole and malouda useless.

    Cech
    Ivanovic Carvalho Terry A.Cole
    J.Cole Ballack Lampard Malouda
    Anelka Drogba
    Yeah Sunderland another one I forgot, they were even poorer opposition than Preston and Birmingham though, on a similar level to Watford.

    We won't go for a flat out 4-4-2, it'll be a diamond or christmas tree formation. We've done well this January, but we haven't come across any very tough opposition.

    Chelsea duo Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou have also returned from Angola but will not be considered until the trip to Hull on Tuesday.

    no idea tbh. he was recently called up as a first team substitute for our FA cup game against Preston, so he must be decent?

    Interesting that. I think you'll find he's excellent going forward, has a very good cross on him but is slightly suspect defensively. Then again, what young full backs aren't? Also quite versatile, main position is LB but can play in midfield or CB too. Impressed at Coventry and they wanted to keep him, although I think we recalled him back to get him more involved in the first team. When one of the top Championship sides comes after him though it's good news, excellent loan deal for him and I hope he does very well.

    I thought he was going to as well, he's certainly available, perhaps Ancelotti doesn't want to rush him back with fitness and everything. Don't worry though, Arsenal are up next after Hull. Guranteed points.

    Well I wouldve stuck with Anelka until after the gameweek otherwise.. Bet he scores loads now
    Lampard captain it is!

    A solid 2, unless he's captained of course. 4 points :coma:

    Don't expect anything other than a very difficult game. We won't lay down for you like every other team seems to.

    Gallas to score the only goal, an own goal, in the 95th minute after the fourth official indicated a minimum of two minutes of added time?!

    Nah.

    Hmmm should be a good game to watch tbh. :holmes:

    I expect Arsenal to get a result against Chelsea. Now Overs won't see this as it's Chelsea and not in Arsenal. :cool:

    I think if Arsenal beat United, they'll definitely take points from Chelsea...

    In any case, I'm thinking we beat United 3-1 and draw 1-1 with your lot.

    I'd prefer Arsenal to draw to Utd, lose to us, and beat Liverbundle.

    I do not want to see Ancelotti blow another lead again. His Juventus stint was bad enough, let alone AC Milan. No more mozerella crumbles please. I prefer pizza.

    Had the dream last night. The pre-match, but not about United... it was just about Chelsea.

    Chelsea 1 - 3 Arsenal.

    We were 3 - 0 up as well when my dream tuned in to the game.

    You enjoyed being right with your prediction, as I remember, Aaron

    A stream will be up somewhere.

    Both are excellent options, wouldn't like to say one or the other.

    Ivanovic, inconsistent, what games have you been watching recently wtf?

    He's been more consistent than Didier or Anelka. Best three players this season.
