thanks riise and kalou pif we dont lost tonight we will go through i think......
if we score first then we are in a great position, coz losing 2-1 would still mean we can go thru winning 1-0 at home....
the key question is how we react if they score first, and am sure they will score today, do you remain caution and lose 1-0 or attack and risk going 2-0 down which means its over...very tricky situation for the players and needs mental toughness....
so far its 1-1 and 0-0 against them this season so both teams have no fear.....
Are your lot going to give Grant some credit for his substitution of Kalou for Cole? It was his cross that caused the own goal. Very good cross too.
Kalou should not start an away match against a team such as Liverpool. Away at Liverpool, he's not the kind of player you need out there. But as a sub he makes a huge impact. Great tactical approach to the game by Grant. 2nd Leg should see Kalou start
Only when some players go, like Lampard or Drogba, we can improve our football. Replace Drogba with a striker with ability like Berbatov and Lampard with a midfielder with pace and skills like Modric or Van der Vaart, and Chelsea never will play as today anymore.
Agree with footyfan. Bringing on Kalou at a late stage in the game rather than starting him was a good move by Grant in this match.
yes an emphatic 1-1 win for us last nite...and whats Roman has to do with this molouda v kalou discussion? we were in the semi with ranieri, with mourihno, and with grant, moaning about the fact we had 1 shot at goal and were saved by a 95th minute own goal is a valid reason for such a strong team, yesterday was probably our WORST performance of the season compared to say the game against arsenal...You're def the only men who that can cry about getting an ugly 1-1 away at anfield in the champions league semi final.
Some of your fans don't deserve this team.. maybe when Roman leaves and he leaves you with your willy in your hands, then you'll miss those ugly wins in the semis insted of the fighting for uefa position qualify.
Nothing can make you happy, even your own team winning, just because your darling manager was sacked.
