The Mail Bag

Today's Team

Comments (64)

This is the team I would put out today with the FA cup round the corner:

Howard
Neville, Yobo, Lescott, Baines.
Osman, Castillo, Rodwell, Pienaar.
Jo & Vaughan.

I'd play Jo playing in the hole with Vaughan leading the line... Cahill, Saha & Fellaini ready on the bench.

And Downing’s calf muscle has just snapped.

I do feel sorry for Southgate at times.

Back to the game - Osman is trying at least. More than Saha.

Quite a good game to watch so far. We’re passing it around nicely, just need a little more urgency around their area. And I’m watching it on iraq goals with Italian commentary, don’t understand most of it but it’s better than listening to the usual crap.

To many players out today with the F A Cup in mind. Half hearted tackles and looking disinterested. Understandable really but terrible to watch. Still, they went 1-0 up at Upton Park and we won 1-3.

We are playing dodge. Saha is dodge and don't get me started on Osman. Crikey, my mrs would have more of an effect on the game. Feel sorry for Jacobsen with him in front.

Good opportunity to go 5th probably today. We are limping a bit to the end of the season but you can understand a bit or reticence not to get injured like Jags and miss the Cup Final. Lets hope we pull it off today anyway, now they have ten men. And come on Boro!

We need a right midfielder desperately! Osman cannot play outwide. He drifts in too much, and it forces us to go down the left too often.
Right-midfielder please Mr Moyes!
One that can cross!

"Saha playing really well this half, obviously putting in the effort to start in the final. COYB! "

I think he is playing for his career mate. Can't see us keeping him unless he performs well in next two games. Doing just that so far today. :-)

Peanut did brilliantly there.... 2nd half of season he has been awesome and really stepped up when Mikel was injured. As typing, more great football ? Louis one-on-one, keeper saved then an awful header by Cahill missed a pretty much open goal! Keep this up, Blues/

All-in-all a decent performance, and we had a couple of extra chances that could have made it look even more like a battering. But then we could have been punished by a couple of bits of sloppy play. Also glad players came through unscathed. Final fever is building.

Slightly different note, I’ve just seen Shearer moaning about their disallowed goal saying Nolan’s fouling in the lead up to Taylor’s goal had been highlighted all week meaning the ref was looking for it today. Tast of your own Match of the Day medicine Shearer after all that shite with Fellaini’s elbows.
