It's war in the geezer household with the missus being a devoted Watford fan. Got a text message from a guy at work who types up and edits the Watford programme notes guaranteeing me and the missus tickets in the Watford end however if the games on the Saturday we won't be able to make it. If it's on the Sunday it's game on with me sitting on my hands for the whole game.

In case anyone hadn't noticed this game is the 1730 kick off on the 14th. Absolute bloody nightmare for me as I have to pick up the good lady wife from work at 1700 and drive to Glasgow as we are out for a birthday/valentine dinner (yes she was born on Valentine's day meaning I get away with one meal!) and trying to wangle seeing the game is going to be about as possible as driving past three ladies without glimpsing in the wing mirror.

Come on Loz, put the foot down.

It's Chelsea, it's Watford and its the FA Cup 5th round FFS

Next Saturday's game against Watford is going to be difficult one for Chelsea. Watford always give Chelsea a tough game and I expect it to be the same next weekend. Chelsea should be good enough to beat a Watford side that is fighting to stay in the Championship. Below is the team that I would play:

Cech, Bosingwa, Terry, Alex, A.Cole, Quaresma, Ballack, Lampard, Kalou, Drogba, Di Santo

Formation: 4-4-2

Bloody women, there's just no appeasing them sometimes. Two guaranteed tickets in the Watford end to keep her happy then:

"Oh it's a 5:30 kick off is it? No that'll be too late"

"What do you mean it'll be too late?".

"Well it's Valentines night, I don't want to be at a football match for Valentine's night"

"Well I'm not taking you to Tesco's for dinner again like last year!".

"No I want something more upmarket this year"

"Well how about a burger from the stall near the Watford ground?"

"" (no words needed, the look said it all)

"If you think I'm taking you to Morrisons for dinner you've no chance, that bloody Alan Hansen advertises for them"

"Stop being silly. Surprise me then"

"BOO"

"Be serious for once. Surprise me"

So - two tickets for the match it is then - that'll surprise her.

We all know who should be playing, but Big Phil will just pick whoever he wants , unless they are all broken. Therefore I expect to see maximum 3 changes from the Hull match, make it 4 if Cech is fit. It would be disgraceful if we get knocked out, but would I be shocked by it? Not at all, unfortunately.
