lets see how Rafa fecks this one up
well... considering stokes set peice game, were gonna need him to defend corners
seriously though, if azpi is at RB instead of Ivano we could pay, i think DL is gonna have to step back into CB for this one, stick ramires in beside lamps please and thank you.
No other TV coverage?
If it is on ESPN deportes, it should be on ESPN or atleast ESPN3 i guess.
no ESPN but ESPN3
Stoke away will be a hard nut to crack. Formidable side without a loss at home yet.
We're playing so inconsistent right now I can't really give a prediction what will happen tomorrow.
Oye, what a fooking joke. ESPN Deportes?
JT in the squad and should be on the bench
Cech possibly in the team as well
who's feeling good about this one?
guess I'm watching this one in spanish
at least you got it on tv at all!
Not in the least mate. Stoke is always tough. Stoke is doubly tough with Rafa.
Well at least FSW had enough sense to start Ba
Cech and Lampard starting as well
JT and Torres on the bench

I'm trying to think here, so if anyone can assist me, that would be great, but have we won a match this season with a "defensive winger" in the first XI? I don't believe I remember it, but I could be mistaken.
Thanks fern. Must have posted near the same time. Bertrand out wide here. Hmm...
I believe the opener vs Wigan with Bertrand to contain Moses
a couple of other games as well IIRC
I think so- just wanted to give you a quick heads up in case you were still looking for the first XI
Luiz back at CD. Glad to see it- just a little nervy that is against Stoke which whom he has had a few problems in the past.
Gary Cahill is not in the Chelsea squad today because his partner went into labour this morning. He is now the proud father of a baby boy. Congratulations to the Cahill family.
from the beeb. Congrats Gaz.
(cue the JT jokes)
Oye, he better make sure it's his!
Congrats Gaz! Happy for the lad. Have to say that he is one of my favorite players. He's got a good head on his shoulders and is a really good defender.
