Anyone else bricking it?

The loss of Ricky has spooked me big time, and I am very concerned about who will replace him and the knock on effect this may have on the rest of the team selection.

We HAVE to start well, take it to them, silence the self-appointed 'Greatest Fans In The World' and ideally score before half time, or things could be tough. If we are under seige from the word go, I don't fancy our chances and so having a strong combative midfield is key to ensuring Stevie Me and Co can't get up steam, meaning playing the Bison in his rightful place is key. As others have said, Boula was bought for backup, so if he doesn't play now, then what was the point in forking out all that cash??

Nervous, but confident IF we start the game well.

I have to say, though I hate to say it, I have a really bad feeling about this. I feel sick now and just wish it was over and we were through.

You and me both hiding.gif I just hope it won't go into extra time, because I won't be able to handle that on top of 90 minutes.

I'm not worried yet... unless I am going to a game I don't get worried until I see the teams in the tunnel usually...

but right now I think that feeling has been displaced by annoyance over this whole boulahrouz situation... either we use essien in defence or boulahrouz is set to play his first full 90 minutes since... I think some point in december or november maybe.

Come on guys! I don't like the nervous tone coming through on this thread. Let's just say Boula will be fresh and hungry after a long lay off. This is a player who has a lot to prove and he'll have JT alongside him every step of the way, with Essien and Obi (I hope) providing a wall of steel in front of him!

Yep, I'm bricking it big time!

I can handle losing in the CL semi final, I could have handled going out to Valencia in the last round, I could probably even handle losing the final, but no way can I handle losing to Liverpool at Anfield - that would be one step too far. They are unbearable enough as it is - I can't even think about what they would be like if they did turn us over.

Come on boys - defeat is just not an option!

that hits the nail on the head for me...this is more than just a possible Champions League final place being at stake here and effectively our season...it's the scousers and the media who love them, plus the whole country, being against us and ready to give us hell

What really gets me is this crap being spouted about how they can turn us over 2-0 or 3-0. Of course it's possible, but how often do we

a) lose at all

:hiding: lose by more than 1 goal

c) concede 3 goals

(oh, and how often do we fail to score?)

I know we did lose there 2-0 in the league but there were a lot of circumstances surrounding that with injuries and the in fighting going on. I think it is just about the only score that would take Liverpool through. I can't see 3-1 or 4-2. I could see 1-0 and penalties but if it comes to that I will be so far under the sofa that I'll end up in Australia!

not sure how to explain this one, but I will give it a try.

If we win, I will be jumping for joy. If we lose, I will be down for days.

So, which feeling would be closest to the extreme? (are you following?)

If we lost, I dont think any defeat will have hurt as much, however if we win, sure it will be a great victory, but not up there with our best ever (unless it's 4 or 5 nil)

did any of that make sense?

Not that I'm nervous but ..

I was dog-tired last night, couldn't sleep a wink

I can't wait for the game, I'm dreading it

I'm starving bloody hungry, I can't eat a thing

I wish I was going to Anfield, I'm glad I can't.

Bricking it? I'm a f*cking wreck. and there's still over 6 hours to kickoff

so many like minded souls on here and i can only repeat what has been said.

we cant lose to them again. not them, with THOSE fans.

i thought the 4-1 in oct 05 mightve quenched my thirst for revenge for that night. but it hasnt come close.

i want this victory more than any other chelsea victory in my 23 years of being a blue. and as silly as it sounds beating liverpool in the semi will mean just as much to me as winning the whole f**king thing.

i cant tell you what it will do to me if we dont win. its unthinkable.

however, what ever way i look at it. i have to admit i just cant see us in Athens and i dont know why. maybe its a mental thing still drawing over me from 2 years ago.

i hope at 10pm tonight i am the wrongest person in England.
