I hope we go with this:

Lehmann

rb Eboue - cb Gallas- cb Senderos - lb Traore (Toure suspended, clichy not quite fit with Djorou and Hoyte injured).
rw Hleb- cm Gilberto - cm - Denilson - rw Walcott (Rosicky, Flamini and Diaby injured. Fabregas exhausted)
ss Baptista - cs Alliadiare (Henry, van Persie injured. Adebayour suspended)

Theo and Poom on the bench. three spare seats.

Fuck.

At least Big Willy looked OK, but I don't understand why Poll still gets trundled out.

Immit. Bad officiating, negative opposition, poor Arsenal midfield, lacklustre movement from forwards, usualy shitty Senderos. :(

Yeah I don't really get why Senderos is there, other than to occasionally clear the ball with his head.
With no Rosicky or Fabregas they looked like empty threats.

That Samba kid sure is a huge fucker.

It wasn't that funny. Shame Big Willy didn't score though.

Yeah, the pussies finally decided to give Bridge a go. I've always thought he was better, but giving him the spot over Cashley because of fear for the fans' reaction stuffed it.

Not playing Drogba was big. Mourinho baffles me.

The decisions ion my view were quite rational and sensible. He has the FA cup final soon and with Manchester United winning the derby on Saturday meant that Mourhino had almost no hope of winning the premiership. Cole at Arsenal would be a risk as the reaction may have an adverse effect on Cole, plus he was slightly injured as was Drogba and it makes sense to rest these players rather than risk further injury with the main prospect of a trophy lingering just around the corner. Add to this both players played 120 minutes against Liverpool recently and are needed in tip-top shape for the final, the rest and recuperation made absolute sense.

I didn't know they were both injured. I only got the typical "Mourinho's selling the fans short with his tactics" rhetoric that spouts from the Sky Sports commentators.

Is winning the Cup Final enough to keep his job?

Bridge has played only a few less games than A. Hole - check out his stats on the fantasy league, he has more points. I rate him too.

Having more Fantasy League points just means he's been fortunate enough to play in more games where Chelsea has kept a clean sheet. If Bridge has scored more bonus points than Cole, then that would have some meaning. They should have tried harder to keep Del Horno.

What I want...

Lehmann betwixt or the new boy if he's good.


Right back - Micah Richards

Centre backs - as they are.

Clichy playing the left flank from deep.

Central defensive midfield held by Golberto, supported by Denilson from the bench.

Central attacking midfield if a 4 in the fore to be played by Cesc. If five needed to thrive, perhaps Rosicky can be pulled from wing to the tip of the arrow.

Right wing I wish to change Eboue, from lacklustre, petulent defender to accomplished winger who wins us free kicks like Bobby Pires and Reyes did by falling over...with Ljungberg supporting from the bench and/or vice versa.

Left wing of a four man midfield would go to the narrow Rosicky but if five is used as said, he should be shunted inside where he a more accomplished player. In that circumstance, there is no natural left winger, but Van Persie, if we opt for a lone striker will do us good right there.

Striker, Henry. Hopefully fighting fit like a mad Irishman denied his ale on giro day, the team would be a contender methinks.

Eboue is much to aggro right now to be convincing at falling over.

Word is that Freddie will be moving on.

Yeah, he's been recalled to the team. A great addition to the subs bench.

"Sometimes when he eats he puts food up his nose, and when he met the Queen at Buckingham Palace he was on the floor playing with her corgi dogs."

But Eboue's finest moment, according to Adebayor, came at the Gunners' Christmas party.

"It was at Gilberto's house. It wasn't even a fancy dress party but there was Eboue dressed as a tiger - with a tail and everything - waiting for me behind the door.

"When I arrived, he made a big noise like a tiger roaring. For a moment I was in a big panic but then I saw him and I thought 'oh it's only Eboue'."

Remember that steak of games where Eboue crossed and Thierry headed home?
Those were good times.

Yeah. I've had a few drinks.

Remember when Henry wasn't sold to Barcelona every week? Looks like it's happening real-4 now.
