Cech, has to be Cech. Stopped a shocking result being an absolute rout.

Im just waiting for someone to come and say Mikel though...

Why wouldn`t we? The only outfield-player that can leave SB with his head raised, and would ovbiously get my vote behind Cech.

Mikel was adequate, just as he has been for most of the season, bar one or two very good performances.The fawning that goes on over him by some is absurd.

Let me guess, you think he ran the midfield, an old head on young shoulders etc etc, blah, blah f**king blah.

He did make an inch-perfect pass over the top to Anelka in the first half which created a half-chance at a goal, and was lively out there throughout.

Yes, and Ferreira is a usefull fotballer. You lack a hell of a lot when you think Mikel has been adequate this season. Without him there is now way we would be top at the moment. Player of the season so far, and the only one that is remotely close is Cech.

I don't want to have a pop at Mikel today when the whole team was poor.

But I think in recent games, Mikel has been the pick (and I voted him MOTM in the Fulham game), because so many other playuers are under-performing. Lamps has been missing, the strikers haven't been scoring (much) and Malouda's form has dipped a lot. Mikel will always be a 6 / 7 out of 10 as he's not expected to do much attacking wise and when we let in goals it's the defence's fault.

Just hope we get a proper midfield back sooner rather than later.

Im not having a pop at Mikel Nibs, ive said all season he has been better. But not brilliant.

Its just no way he was MOM today. There was only one clear candidate and that is Cech.

Making a point. How would you describe Ferreiras season btw? Adequate aswell?

Should never watch a football-match ever again methinks of you seriously call Mikels season adequate.

He's done ok , so yeah, maybe adequate.

The difference is i dont throw abusive insults the way of Mikel as you have done towards Paulo.

But then im a proper Chelsea fan who will support the team and players through thick and thin (and have done), not a glory hunting cretin.

Clearly correct about Cech.

In terms of Mikel's performance I thought it was very similar to the Liverpool game in that he was the best of the midfield three but as Zhirkov and Ramires were diabolical (Ramires slightly better than Zhirkov) that isn't necessarily saying much. What I would say is that it is pretty hard for the holding midfielder when the two in front of him are so ineffective - just as in the Liverpool game Mikel was swamped by the Sunderland midfield due to the performances of the the other two in the midfield three.

I have always been wary about Zhirkov but have always taken account of the fact he hasn't had enough game time to settle in and prove himself however I do question whether he is going to be with us much longer. The formation we play doesn't suit him one bit as he is hopelessly out of his depth in a midfield three and I am still to be convinced he is a decent wing back.

Essien's bizarre decision to go in for that tackle last week has spanked on the arse today.
