If AVB doesn't go all out in this game (As in keep Torres, Bosingwa and Mikel the strawberry float away from it), we're so screwed. If we get a decent result then great. If not, maybe AVB will be sacked and we'll get someone a bit less stubborn. I really don't understand why he continues to play Torres centrally when he can't perform there and Sturridge clearly can. When you have Studge saying he much prefers playing centrally, and Torres is getting decent assists from the wing, surely giving them a game or two set up in this way is a good idea?
Interesting point about Torres on the wing... Hadn't even thought of that. Long-term he has to play centrally. I like Studge playing on the right.
Thee main problem is that AVB wants to play 4-3-3 when Chelsea don't have a left winger. Mata isn't a winger and Malouda is too gooseberry fool and too slow.
In the summer I want Chelsea to being in a to quality winger or two (Hazard...? Di Maria?..... Robben??
) and another striker when Didier goes.
I don't mind going for damage limitation this season. Go all out for CL next season and see how Chelsea do in Europe. Don't strawberry floating sack Boas though as it's obvious the team isn't there. Give him time.
As an aside, apparently Lampard had a massive row with AVB after the Everton game.
