CL Group A: Chelsea FC vs. FC Barcelona [P+R]

Siawash

Senior Squad
Meh, made a thread. Cech is out, Cudicini is very doubtful, and Cole's are both doubtfull. Hilario will likely start. 4-3-3 or maybe 4-4-2.

Probable teams
Chelsea: Hilário; Paulo Ferreira, John Terry, Ricardo Carvalho, Ashley Cole; Michael Essien, Michael Ballack, Frank Lampard, Arjen Robben; Andriy Shevchenko, Didier Drogba.

Barcelona: Víctor Valdés; Gianluca Zambrotta, Carles Puyol, Rafael Márquez, Giovanni van Bronckhorst; Xavi Hernández, Edmílson, Deco; Lionel Messi, Eidur Gudjohnsen, Ronaldinho.

Eidur will probably start.

Reserve GK Makalumbay or whatever his name his will be on sub's bench.

Hahaha. Reminds me of a great Simpsons quote:

Homer: Who do you like in the afternoon games?
Lisa: Well, I like the 49ers because they're pure of heart, Seattle because they've got something to prove, and the Raiders because they always cheat.

Commentator: (later) And in extremely suspicious play, the Raiders win!


But in all seriousness, I see Barcelona winning 2-0, goals from Iniesta and Eidur, Chelsea to blame the goalkeeping situation.

Well hopefully this will the time for the blues. But efter reading those comments from some of you guys about Hilario... I'm too sure about this. I gues we'll find out tomorrow. Anyway at least this time they can afford to lose even both matches.

I have a feeling of a Chelsea win, no matter how much I dislike them. Well at least Arsenal lost so you can't win them all.

Chelsea 2-1 ... not too sure on scorers.

Well, again, 3rd time Barça and Chelsea plays, but this time is rarely strange. First of all to all Chelsea fans, im sure that Hilario will do it fine, this is the minus important problem that could have Chelsea, there´s other things more important to take a look. And i hope that also Peter aswell Cuduccini will be totally recovered of their injuries, i saw the macth against Reading, and,,,,pfff,,,it was really scary. I saw totally intention on Hunt to kick with his knee to Peter, for me is a red card, but well, referees sucks on al leagues, as always.

So for our part, Eto´o is out this year, let´s see what will happend with Guddy and Saviola on the second half. Sure, i hope a victory from Barça, this year the team is inmaculated, really a very good team, like last year but with more reinforcements. It will be a hard battle on the middle of the field, this year Chelsea plays different due Ballack position, like a more midfield game, and not so often using the counter-atack. Barça plays a lot on the midfield....so, for this reason, i think that the key will be on a good game on this position (Iniesta, Xavi, Deco...sounds great to me).

This time seems that the picth is ok, and it will be good for made that the game looks better, more fluid, etc.....

So, i will expect a great macth with this SUPER teams. For me, today, both, best teams in the world, almost for now.

Pede!!! where are you man?? you see, this time is totally diferent, not words battle?? hehehe...just joking. I repeat, i hope a great macth.

Take care

chelsea to win 2-0.
shevchenko-21st
drogba-90th

I hope its a game at will be at a really fast pace and with a lot of flying, hard and crunshing tackles made by chelsea, making barca really tried and weary that they will not be able to stand up after 90 minutes.
