Interesting thought, that. Then again, most of us support the big four, and it's highly unlikely that the FA Cup won't go to one of them. So says the recent FA Cup record.
Sure, but you would have thought at least one person would put down a different club to their own.

I get the feeling that the desire to win it > the rational (unbiased) choice...for a few people anyway. Particularly interesting because Prem teams don't enter the FA Cup for a weeks yet.

Could be a variation on the 'double-pivot' system :p:

Anyway, I would classify Essien as being 'box-to-box' and Fabregas as a CM.

I'd agree with that.

Well, I'm more hoping that I'd win the CL and the title. Despite trailing Man Utd I still believe Chelsea will overhaul them when the packed schedule comes to play along with injuries and suspensions. As they say, it's the squad which wins you the title not your first eleven. As with the CL, it is common for teams who win the CL to have had heart-break a few times before. And currently topping the toughest group in the competition, and for disposing Barcelona at home (despite their lack of clinical finishing, which, if better would have demoralised Barcelona on the score line) there are signs that this could be their year.

It's true; by rough rule of thumb a top European team needs five years on the go in the Champions League before being a proper contender.

I suppose I would trade a league title for the CL but it would be nice to join the elite of a few teams who have won it three times in a row, or win it again once more to be the elite of one (IIRC). :eek:

Hehe.

It'd shut a few people up if you won them both I suppose, which would certainly be a good thing..

And if we did the quad, all the Utd fans would be in tears. And I suppose Mourinho would get an honoury knighthood too.

Realistically Everton aren't in a position to challenge yourselves, Arsenal or United when you put a full team out. Therefore, all silverware is probably out of the question this season.

We are building a team, and hopefully can aim to win stuff in the coming years. This season is the first time all of the players we have have been brought in by Moyes.

If we're not gonna win stuff, you might as well do so and piss a few people off!
