Which is weird as the draw is much better for us than them. Chelsea play a high line , we need to start strong , feel like we have enough to pull off a win

Souness questioning Martial's "love for the game" because he doesnt smile ear-to-ear all the time?

punditry standards in this country are so low.

Any manager worth his salt will tell his big centre forward to get on Lindelof. Sam Allardyce basically did it from minute one and reaped the rewards. The best headers of the ball we've had at this club haven't been about athletic prowess or being 6ft 5. It's all about technique. Heading the ball is every bit a skill as much as anything else in the game. Steve Bruce, Vidic ... all won headers because they made the ball theirs, they werent afraid to get smashed in the face while doing it either.

Unfortunately we've got a back 5 (GK included) who all wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight. Placid, quiet as mice without a bad bone in their body. Very nice guys but I wouldn't want any of them next to me in a trench.

Having said that, it's stamford bridge our record there in the last 30 years is horrific and anything better than our usual 1-0 routine defeat there is a bonus.

Whereas you were a real happy go lucky guy on the pitch right, Graeme?

Maguire is decent in the air generally deals well with balls slung into the box, but Lindelof is a concern. And DDG. Him setting up a sleeping bag on his line doesnít help either.

Could really do with rashers not giving the ball away so cheaply like that
