    Big game tonight. Djourou really needs to start ahead of Koscielny but I don't see it. Either way, Squillaci looked like he was scared ****less by Drogba the last time they played. Exactly the type of game to get Chelsea going again.

    Really need Cesc to get into it tonight too.

    Yeah, goes without saying really that we can't afford any passengers tonight.
    What's the news on Fabianski/Chesney?

    Dislike the existence of this thread. Will kill the footy thread .

    For all the mocking I'd rather people were talking about Arsenal in there than not posting at all..

    Tonight's game:

    First 15-20 minutes: Arsenal will start the brighter of the two, and will look more likely to make things happen without actually creating many clear cut chances. Drogba will score on Chelsea's first serious foray into Arsenal territory, probably bullying about 8 Arsenal players in the process.

    Next 20 minutes: Arsenal will respond well and will create a couple of half chances. With 5-10 minutes to go until half time, one of the commentators will pass comment on how well Arsenal have responded to going a goal down and that they need to make this period count. Within 60 seconds of such a comment, Drogba will have scored again completely against the run of play, probably as a result of some inexplicable defending by Gael Clichy.

    Second half: Denilson will get substituted after doing nothing. Arsenal will continue to see more of the ball, but Chelsea will repel all attacks with consumate ease, and while they'll probably surrender the majority of possession and territory, will not look remotely like conceding a goal. Chelsea will then ruthlessly counter attack with about 15 minutes to go and grab a third goal after more shambolic defending. Bendtner and Walcott will get thrown on, the two will combine for a consolation goal. Arsenal will miss a sitter to make it 3-2 with 7 or 8 minutes left and lose all momentum after that. Arsenal's bottle will be questioned after the game, with Wenger claiming in his post match interview that the brightness of the floodlights/colour of Drogba's studs/referee's shorts/depth of the goal nets weren't condusive to playing good football.

    Really praying he doesn't start Diaby today. Need Jack's tenacity in there and need Song to actually defend again. Can't carry a lazy at best of times guy playing his first game back in weeks. Already resigned to Drogba being involved in 2 goals today so hope Nasri and Arshavin have a goal each in them or something.

    Chelsea/Terry seem to have spent the festive break playing rugby.

    Nasri is ****ing class but has been frozen out of our attack too much. Need to sick him on Ferreira more often.

    It is bizarre, he's got the beating of Ferreira every time, so they keep giving it to Walcott who's not got the beating of Cole.
