This is a question to the Chelsea fans, is it true that Chelsea only plays with one striker and uses wingers on the left and right to support the striker? have you guys ever tried the 4-4-2 formation and has it made the team better? (just a random question if there's a problem I can move this question to the chelsea thread)

Fair enough question. The start of last year saw Chelsea start with a 4-4-2 in the game, strangely enough, against Man United at the bridge

Looking back at the video I have it was a formation of
-------Maka
--Geremi--Smertin
------Lampard
--Guddy---Drogba

But at the time, Duff and Cole didnt really figure in Jose's plans, and Robben was injured. When he finally got the latter back, and realized the usefulness and adaptability of the former, as well as the fact that we were struggling with 2 up top, he switched it, and then after the blackburn game, hes never looked back.

All that said, I would like to see things switched up from time to time. I know Rob is a proponent of wanting to see Guddy and Crespo paired, but I think Drogba along with either of the two would be awesome. Anyway, were scoring too much this year to change things now. Even with the current slump, I doubt Jose will change his plans, and now we have bought players to fit this system, so...

I cant watch the game tonight. I cannot get up at 3am considering I have my most important exam in my life a few hours later, sleep is a must and this must take priority.

I never have the willpower to do it, but you should protect the result and then get the torrent of the match afterward...or just watch it when it replays

So I guess no admin-ing for you if you stick to that plan...good luck though. Plenty of (C) might help

I think Lampard will score today... infact, its pretty much inevitable, hes the Premierships top scorer so he has to net a few. I think it should be a good game today and Ill be keeping my eye on that.

1-0 United

Keane coming out of nowhere with a steel chair on Fergie and Carlos Queery. Leading the United team to a 135 unbeaten run afterwards . . .

i can't watch the game either. the game live at 3am here :(
The game starts at 12:00 mid-night here in Hong Kong. I have school tmr but I will still watch that. Comparing with the CL games (Kickoff at 3:45am), this game is early enough for me. :p I watch almost all the CL games though.

OK, I would like to see this...

VDS
Brown Rio Silvestre O'Shea/Bardsley Brown Rio Silvestre
Park Scholes Smith
Rooney Ruud Ronaldo

Park can really help us in the midfield battles and I think Fletcher's current form is not good enough to play in this hard game.

1-0 United
Park

And I hope our injured players like Solskjaer, Fortune, Heinze, Gary, Saha will go to the stadium to watch this game. I havent seen Solskjaer watching on the stand in our home games since he was injured... is it only the cameraman didnt get him?

Solskjaer has been on a few games watching since his injury,but i rather have him in the gym training!

i feel manchester united are no longer the dominant force they were in the 1990's when the dominated english football and i believe chelsea will be too strong for them. i believe it will be a convincing 2-0 win for chelsea with goals from frank lampard and arjen robben.

lampards goal will come in the 55th minute from around 20 yards. with robbens in the 86th minute running past a helpless rio ferdinand and slotting to van der saars far post, he will then run behind the goals then towards the chelsea fans and slide on his knees.

wayne rooney will then be sent off in the 90th minute for a second bookable offense, a late tackle on michael essien. with the 1st booking coming just 7 minutes earlier after a dive in the chelsea penalty box.
