Agreed ST! (What's your name?? I'm forever agreeing with you and I want to stop calling you ST :-p) another tick off on the trophy haul. Won't be easy though, really does depend where we are in the league as to how serious it's taken by 'management'

Would be funny if we meet Atl. Madrid at some point.

 

 

Actually, I hope they are put out at this stage.  They won this competition last year and gave us a right kicking when we played them earlier this season in the Super Cup.

 

I always hope that the stronger teams are put out before us in any cup competitions, which is why I was cheering for Reading against Man U on Monday in the FA Cup

As much as I dislike the FSW, I think we have every chance at winning this with the player's skill and experience.

It looks to be a strange year this time, a lot of the 'big teams' seem to be struggling and the perceived bigger competition could find themselves out tonight.

If the players can get back to playing free flowing footy (may have to ignore the waiter's orders to do this), we have as much, if not more chance than most.

Never watched the 1st leg and sounds like it was a wise decision.

Will watch tonight and hopefully see a great performance and god forbit a Fernando Torres goal...

Luidcrously we have one senior striker avaliable for these Europa games and that striker is Fernando Torres, and at some point against a good team (possibly Ajax) that will cost us.

 

I would be very surprised if we managed to win the trophy, even though the quality is vastly inferior to the CL there are still some strong teams and I have no faith that interim has what it takes to see us past teams like Zenit or Inter over two legs, especially with Torres leading the line. Torres performance last week in Prague was pitiful, his worst in a Chelsea shirt, which is some accolade.

 

I havent really paid too much attention to this competition untill this last week - can someone let me know the stage we are at ? If we win tonight and then beat Ajax are we in the semis or the quarters?

With Hazard, Oscar, Mata, Moses ect it shouldnt be a big deal that we only have Torres.

We have a far better squad than 99% of teams left in this competition.

Moses can play as a striker remember.

I would like for us to win this trophy, and I think we could or at the very least be in the mix. Unfortunately our greatest opponent, and it's no disrespect to the teams in this competition, is the man that is supposed to be steering us to victory...

 

If the FSW could put his love for RM, Spain, and fatty foods aside for a bit then we could have a decent run in this competition and who knows.

 

As it stands now, I don't have a ton of faith. Still, COYB! Let's finish the job tonight.

Id like to see this as an option. Ideally tonight and from then on every game that Demba Ba cannot play in.

I would to but we both know it won't happen unless Torres is injured or suspended in the EL.

Could try a Spain and play with no number 9....
