    Ivanovic and Zhirkov are no Maicon and Zanetti. Man for man we hold our own and anyone who has even a casual appreciation of our results in 2010 will see our team spirit is immense.
    Zanetti got any pace in him? He'll need it when Nico Anelka's going around him.

    3-4-3 innit?

    Cech

    Carvalho - Terry - Ivanovic

    Joe Cole - Ballack - Lampard - Malouda

    Sturridge - Drogba - Anelka

    **** Kalou.

    We've got six possible left backs:

    A.Cole - Injured
    Hutchinson - Injured
    Bosingwa - Injured
    Zhirkov - We'll see...
    Belleti - Injured
    Ferreira - Not in squad

    With two other natural ones out on loan. :/

    Just our luck. Let's just hope Zhirkov is fit, will be his most important game for us so far. Otherwise it'd have to be Malouda/JT/Riccy.

    Playing without a left-back is suicide with Maicon playing. Even a makeshift LB would be much better.

    Lampard will do a solid job on Maicon tbh.

    I was joking, haha.

    Maicon = :coma:. I'm hoping to see Balotelli too, tbh. I rate the prick.

    He's surprising fit for a 36 year old.

    This was just a couple of weeks ago:

    Well he rarely plays these days and you can see why. His last appearance was in the Coppa Italia match against Juve and he almost single handedly gifted Juve the game.

    What's the chance of Van Aarnholts loan being extended. Useful player. Needs to work on some of his positioning though

    Not seen the match but sometimes goalkeepers get too much slack for making a mistake. A goalkeeper makes a howler and there's no mercy and a striker makes a howler and people just think "*FFS*". I've seen some criminal misses by strikers both professionally and when I play (not by me I hasten to add :p:).

    Hmm, well it's official - no Zhirkov.

    Has Ivanovic ever played at left back? He's pretty versatile, would probably do a job. Either him or Belletti will start there, that's for sure... a prospect I'm a little bit scared about :unsure:

    It'll probably be Belletti. Dodgy times indeed.

    3-4-3 might not be so bad then. Mourinho's probably having a joygasm now.

    Ergh.

    Perhaps play Carvalho there? He's got a bit of pace and is an all round solid defender - having Alex at CB.

    Do you think we'll play the 4 - 3 - 3 if that's the case, considering Mourinho pretty much invented us playing like that? Although I guess in a way it'll be good to crowd out a potentially threatening Inter midfield - Sneijder has apparently been in top form and is a player I rate very highly.

    Eto'o always bloody scores against us too...
