Champions League 20th & 21st Nov Topic

Gotta say I'm jealous of United.

I wish we had literally pointless games where we could field some fringe players - Guidetti deserves some time, he was excellent for Feyenoord and Razak is looking promising too. He's been on the bench for a few this season.

I don't know if that lineup is true but I think it said Torres and. Sturridge on the bench.

Fernando Torres is on the bench and with no Daniel Sturridge due to injury, Eden Hazard will play the striker role.

Branislav Ivanovic is right-back and ahead of him in a new role is Cesar Azpilicueta. Juan Mata and Oscar, both rested from the starting 11 on Saturday are both back in the starting line up.
Chelsea are expected to line up in the following 4-2-3-1 formation:

1 Petr Cech (c)2 Branislav Ivanovic24 Gary Cahill4 David Luiz3 Ashley Cole7 Ramires12 John Mikel Obi28 Cesar AXpilicueta11 Oscar10 Juan Mata17 Eden Hazard

Substitutes: 22 Ross Turnbull, 34 Ryan Bertrand, 6 Oriol Romeu, 21 Marko Marin, 35 Lucas Piazon, 13 Victor Moses, 9 Fernando Torres.


The hell?

Well.. I wasn't expecting that formation. So we're playing without an actual striker. We're is Azpi playing exactly? I imagine that he'd be ahead of Ivanovic but then where is Mata playing? I guess he's being moved to the left like he played much of last season.. I'm not sure how I feel about all this. I feel bad for Sturridge though.. I thought this would be his big opportunity to take the spot as a first XI striker.

Plastic Barcelona fan, would rather see Real Madrid win than Man City.


Me picking Madrid over City is purely out of love for Spanish football and dislike for English football, nothing more.


Why do you dislike English football?

Weirdo.


I don't like the way the English play as opposed to the Spanish. I much prefer Spain's technical style over England's physical style.

Fox soccer thinks it's a 5-4-1 with Osca on the wing? That doesn't make sense at all.


In RDM we trust.
