Fulham vs Chelsea (PREM) 17/04/2013. 20:00 BST


Recommended Posts


Iva - Luiz - JT - Bertrand

-----Lamps - Rami

Moses - Mata - Hazard



Hopefully the lads will be out for blood after today, 2-0 Chels.

I like that side for this game.


Not for Rafa, it isn't. He's got Basel to prepare the team for.


I fully expect him to start Marin, Benayoun, Ferreira and Ake against Fulham.

Think that will be Liverpool. The first choice players would have a whole week to rest after Fulham, no reason to rest them here.

May as well throw the 2 strikers in, get a 2 goals lead after 60, then put on Mikel to see the game out. Let's put the best team for the game, win this, then worry about Liverscum and Europa. However, god knows what to expect when Rafa put on his rotation hat on Wednesday.

Every league game is a must win but I just don't

see Fatty managing to get this team on a streak

reckon Chelsea's top 4 chance is reliant upon Spurs or Arse dropping points not on CFC getting them

As for Fulham always a tricky fixture at CC. Need to play the strongest team in every prem game but Fatty will continue his rotation and blame something or someone if Chels choke as usual.

I would go with
















Oscar needs a good break, i would keep him back for the games coming up against Liverpool, Basel 1st and 2nd leg, Tottenham, Man United and Everton. The rest of the games i would play Lampard in his position, get Lampard back playing a more advanced role, the deeper role clearly doesn't work for him.

This game seemingly has a draw written all over it.....the lads will be disappointed with the loss Sunday and Fulham will be well up for this game, hopefully Frank will grab one or two but defensively we have been sloppy....this game, Swansea and Villa together with Liverpool are the potential banana skins which just might be the nail in the fat f**k's coffin and he walks away with f**k all to put on his CV.

Oscar and Azpilicueta are in dire need of rest.  I'd play Lampard and rotate as much as possible without weakening ourselves too much.  One of Mata or Hazard needs to start at least.  I'd go with Ba since Torres has to play against Basel so he'll get his rest there.  This season is like the Bataan death march.

Fulham enjoy playing us.....Little brother v big brother scenario...We know that fulhams mentality will be well up for this. Its always a worrying game at the cottage....we SHOULD get 3 points , but against the so called "lesser" teams we flounder...I hope this is not the case this week and that the players can really give this 4th spot a serious thought....Right now i believe that if we lose to fulham the 4th spot will be gone for good So we need our players to play their hearts n souls out for this....There shouldnt be any rafa this rafa that....We should , with our talent be able to beat this lot with no manager at all...Just pure players instinct...

Ferriera Terry Ivanovic Bertrand

Mikel Lampard

Yossi Moses Marin



Liverpool away on sunday, they are game raisers 4 points from 6 is a must draw wednesday but with a team like that better defensively could nick one from a set piece would give us freshness for sunday which is massive win and close to top 4 and LFC stand no chance of europa next season :)

Chelsea Fulham is historically the dullest fixture of the season. It should be a fierce, exciting London derby but it NEVER is. At least, not for the past couple of seasons.


Just go 4-4-2 with Ba and Torres together and let's smash them the f**k to pieces.

I think it's about time Torres and Ba played together. Oscar has been disappointing lately, he could be sacrificed for the system.


Then again, that's just my opinion. There are positives and negatives to be had.

I would be in favour of a 4-1-2-1-2 formation.




--Ivan-- ---Luiz - JT - Bertrand










This could also help Lampard get forward more often and get those 3 more goals.
