-----------------Cech--------------------

----Diarra----Ricci--JT--------Bridge---

-------------Essien----Mikel-------------

-----------------Lampard----------------

--------------Drogs-Shevchenko-------

Thats the line-up IF Robben is still injured. If not he comes in for Mikel and goes to the left wing.

Boro is a game that worries me. Downing vs Diarra is a worry, Bridgey missing the game is a worry, and Yakubu and Viduka vs Carvalho and either Essien (as great as he is) or JT after 6 weeks out is a worry. The mid-week internationals are also a worry given our track record this season with injuries...

...you may have gathered, I'm worried! icon_wink.gif

Just saw the last fifteen minutes of Portugal vs Brazil friendly and Paulo seems to have played on the left side of the defence. In the worst case scenario we could use him as leftback.

By the way, Ricky Carvalho scored a screamer, i'll try to find and post it.

Paolo is bad to the right, worse in the centre; I don't even want to think about him to the left icon_rolleyes.gif

mikel is injured too. Expected to be out for a coulpe of weeks with a thigh strain!

So said the club however he miraculously played all 90 minutes for Nigeria last night (and allegedly he asked to only play 45)

Oh please, dont be ridiculous.

Paulo is a top right back, i wouldnt swap him for any..- actually , sorry but i just cant do this again....

If Bridgey doesnt play , im sure Paulo will be the left back. He has played there before a few times for us and i just cant see Jose picking anyone else.

Anyone who thinks it will be Elmer is living in cloud cuckoo land!

So the team:

-------------------Cech

Diarra-----Riccy--------JT-------Ferriera

-----------------Maka

-------Essien--------------Frank

---------------Ballack

----------Sheva--------Drogs

The main problem here being that Paulo will not give us the attacking width that Bridgy does. That's quite a problem in that formation.

It looks like Bridge will be out for 2 weeks!

source?

Bridge bolloxed for two weeks - The Times

"Chelsea?s squad has been severely tested by injuries this season, particularly at the back, with Petr Cech, Carlo Cudicini, John Terry, Khalid Boulahrouz and Cole spending long periods on the sidelines. Such problems have been exacerbated by Mourinho?s decision last summer to rely on a small, close-knit squad and with midfield players filling in, the champions have won only three of their past six league matches, allowing Manchester United to build up a six-point lead at the top."

This is a man responsible for our poor perfomance this season. All people must know it. Sh*te!!!!

By the way maybe Boula will be back and will take his place on a left flank???

Well we just disagree on this. I don't think Ferreira is good as RB now. In his first season he was great but lately he's been quite bad.

I also heard Ballack "limped off". I suspect that some of these guys are more focussed on the premiership right now than the national team. I think we need Ballack right now.

borough will be quite tough opposition, woodgate seems to have stiffened their defence up heaps

Indeed ballack has injured himself, might be out for 2 to 3 weeks with a, yip you guesed it, a thigh strain! However, according to physioroom, I read that Robben and Boulah are meant to be back this week. Although I doubt they will be comming back to first team play straight away

For me it could be that we line up like this

..........................cech

diarra........terry.........carvs.....Paulo

......................maka

...essien..............................lamps

.......sheva....................kalou

.......................drogba

Either that, or you resort to the diamond with kalou at its tip behind sheva and drogs
