Chelsea match today….and more!

A post after a long time…lol 😀



Anyway, today, Chelsea play Fulham at Craven Cottage. Not much of a derby (a local derby it’s been called) but Ancelotti’s got his first semi-major fixture. Hope he doesn’t disappoint 😀


He has finally realised that Lampard plays best in centre midfield, so I think the one change we’ll see in the line up is Lampard taking Essien’s place and Deco playing behind the 2 strikers, a position he originally played in at Porto (and is very well known for). We wont be able to see Belletti or Zhirkhov anytime soon, while Joe Cole and Ferrera will again sit out.

The defence is finding it hard to get used to the narrow diamond formation, thus remaining asleep for most of the first half in the matches so far. We’ve conceded twice already, though we came back from behind to win. Something I’ve seen during Mourinho’s days and in Guus’s stint is that never-say-die spirit, something which was totally lost during Scholari’s management and seems to have been reborn in Ancelotti’s first matches. So hope today’s match will be a cracker 😀

Meanwhile at Fulham, we might see our old winger Damien Duff find a place in the starting line-up. Last I heard, Davies and Andrew Johnson may not feature in the line up.

In other news, I’ve been twittering a lot lately, thus finding out about Megadeth’s new album (which will release in about a month) and that most on twitter are stupid spam bots. 😐

Nice artwork, though I lost it at the monks 😐

So, see you after the game, and follow me! 😉
