    FSC! Yippee! :D

    Should be a win here, but they'll be up for this game and it won't be easy. I predict 2-0 to us, goals right on either side of halftime.

    First thought about this game: Throw the captaincy to Riccy. Even if Ballack makes a return I cant think of a more fitting at the moment to wear the armband. Make it so, Undertaker!


    Edit: And for the love of God and all that is holy, Sinclair at least on the bench!

    However much i love J.cole, i wouldnt want him as the captain. Maka or carvalho anyday. On a side note, when is captain courageous returning ?

    I don't see another match thread. Is see a thread asking about away supporters and how many tickets Chelsea gets?

    I'm delaying/skipping my Saturday morning run for this one, which is a pretty big step for me. Come on Chelsea!

    with malouda and SWP still in recovery and the fact we are playing wigan, there is no reason why grant shouldnt pair sinclair with anelka because i am just dying to see them together

    ---------cech---------
    bell---alex---rick---cole
    MB------maka----bridge
    cole----anelka---sinclair

    or, although i seriously doubt grant will do this

    ---------cech----------
    bell---alex----rick---cole
    cole--maka---MB--sinclair
    -----sahar---anelka-----

    i would love to see this squad, the chemistry here would be stellar
    the back solid as usual

    while ballack and maka would guide the younger hitters through their experience, kind of like scholes and giggs do at united (please don't post angry quote replies about me comparing us to manure)

    Yaroni - Grant said Ballack's probably not playing.



    I have lots to do today - pop into work, out to town (sadly I can't watch my local side on the telly cos I'm just too busy), back home for 5, BBC One here we go!

    Indeed...I'm pretty pumped for this game. Looking for a nice win here. :)

    I hope Anelka will get one today.

    Glad SWP is fit. That's a relief.

    I remember when this lot drew us 2-2 and we had to go to their place for the return leg where we hammered them 5-0.

    sitting by the radio eh? Fecking smart arse. :D
