We can take Chelsea. This is a demoralized team that has just blown its chance of catching Manchester United. What would have been a huge motivation to beat us has become enormous pressure to beat us, which is very different. Some of their players have one eye on staying fit for the semi-final and hopefully, final of the Champions League.
They may even rest some key men. What we need is to take the game to them, be physically intimidating and not try to defend deep or look to hit them on the break. If Yakubu or Johnson are played up front on their own, we will lose. If we attack Chelsea from the get go we can win.

We may be modelling next years kit however. The one with the bloody great yellow streak down the back.

Cant see anything other than a comfortable Chelsea win as Moyes will do his usual against the top teams and give them the ball and camp 10 players just outside our penalty box.

Just got that, to be fair I only glanced at the comment as I am full of cold and my head feels like there is a yeti living in it!
I thought it was too early to be advertising the new kit!

Bit of calm is needed. We panic we?ll loose. Stick to a game plan, frustrate them - should get something out of it.

Maybe the biggest offender is Jags but I watched him carefully and, though unsuccessful, I noticed he was trying to do a Beckham. Trouble is, he hasn’t thew same skill level!

We haven?t played like that recently but we have played like that at times this year when we have had our key creative players. If we had our squad at full strength I?m sure Peter?s hopes would be fulfilled.
