Frei has not started a game all season so makes sense. Think it will be a 451 moving to 433.

I expect it to be the same formation as against Stoke. 4-4-1-1. With either Rodders or Berba up top and the other in the hole. Karagounis on the left again. A waste of his talents.

pretty sure it will be:
           Schwarzer
Riether   Senderos   Hughes   Riise

           Sidwell    Diarra

Duff         Karagounis      Rodallega

               Berbatov

Bring Dejagah on for Duff and Baird for Kara! Later bring Frei on for Rod or Sidwell (who keeps losing the ball), injuries allowing of course!

I knowww. But the quality just isn't there. Karagounis just runs around but can't spot a pass. Sidwell gets the ball turns round and passes it back. Duffs doing nothing on the wing. Rodellega is working hard but doing nothing. It just reaks of average.

On a different note, fair play to our defence so far. Good showing.

Fair enough, and on second look there was a tiny bit of contact. But not nearly enough if you ask me to go down. To go down after a couple of seconds, too.

If that had been given against us I'd have been furious, so I don't think it was a penalty.

After 2 defeats we'd have taken a point and a clean sheet in normal circumstances, however we haven't won in a while and Chelsea didn't looks special. Overall sense of m'eh for some reason. Jol has raised the expectations...
Title: Re: Chelsea V Fulham Match Thread - Team In
Post by: BillNRoc on November 28, 2012, 09:42:48 PM
A good point from a poor game. What does Rodallega do to justify his playing time - blackmail the manager?

Sidwell showed up big time tonight, Berba seemed a little off his game, hardly knew Duff was on the pitch. We had so little offensive thrust or imagination, it's fortunate Chelsea were no better despite having pacier attackers. Spurs will see nothing in this match tape to make them fret.

Yes, I assume they were the orders, but there's always a chance to score from a corner. I've not seen a corner turned into wasting time at 0-0 before. At least not for some time.

Grandad he has not had much match time, hopefully on the back of this cameo he will get more time and have an impact on Saturday
Fair play to all of the lads in particular Hughes and Sidwell both had ' stormers' in my opinion

Have to agree with comments about Rodallega - nearly screwed the pooch for us a few times.
I'll take the point from the scum...the fans leaving early - now that was priceless!  064.gif 064.gif 064.gif

Post by: Enter the Frei on November 28, 2012, 09:58:59 PM
Fulham manager Martin Jol: "It is pretty decent to get a point, but I feel we should l have nicked it in the second half. Our shape was good, they had a lot of pressure but we have three or four good chances - nine times out of ten we would have broken them. John Arne Riise's miss was disappointing. I told him that he should have shot across the goalkeeper and into the bottom corner. He covered 80 or 90 yards and not to score was disappointing. We had a lot of players coming back; Mahamadou Diarra was playing his first game, Gorgios Karagounis was lacking a bit of rhythm, and we leave here thinking we could have nicked it."

The man sums it up very wel. A good performance overall and to come away from Stamford Bridge with the feeling you could of nicked it is nice.

Bring Dejagah on for Duff and Baird for Kara! Later bring Frei on for Rod or Sidwell (who keeps losing the ball), injuries allowing of course!
The above is what I stated before half time and stick with it. God knows what some of you have been watching? Sidwell, Kara, Duff, Rodellega were poor tonight! The defence were excellent including Senderos, who most seem to blame for everything! Berba did very well holding the ball and even defending when req. Reither was possibly motm and it was great to see Diarra back who looked good, even though not fully fit. Hughes was solid and Riise was ok. Schwartz looked ok but still cannot kick the ball up the pitch to anywhere near a Fulham player! I was right about Frei.

"God knows what some of you have been watching?"  BestofBrede asked that above concerning Sidwell's performance tonight. 
What a brilliant insight into the loneliness of a viewpoint when the Man of the Match survey and the vast majority of comments on this board saw Sidwell in a completely different light. 
One has to admire the view that the rest of the world is blind and only one person sees everything clearly.
