WTF...Champions league semis final and 5 posts..????
We appologize for not having a plastic army of supporters. :rollani:
Participate in the discussion of football or go away to talk about Ronaldo's hair.

Im taking the afternoon off to watch the match. Lets see a good result!
Why Malouda and not Kalou?

Maybe Grant chose to have a better player in backtracking or fitness issues?

What do you guys say.

Malouda is more traditional and has more big game experience, I kind of like this against Liverpool. Kalou is too young and would play off his best at a hostile setting like Anfield. Not to say he won't play well as a sub, I bet he'll be a good spark for us in the 2nd half
Malouda is a more physical player no? I think that might be one of the reasons.
1-0 liverpool. top class clown defending from fat lampard :thumbsup:
Mistake from Lampard and then MAkelele that led to pool's goal. Pool were fortunate from that MAscherano miskick... and prior to that... the freekick.

Drogba should have been awarded a penalty from that Carragher tackle.

Lampard did have a couple of nice passes that almost led to goals.

Ashley Cole is holding the ball too long with Kuyt harrassing... he got to play it safe, probably that was what Grant told him at the side.

Interesting Half.
makelele also shares the blame for such clown clearing up .......

we should do more with our possesion...why is molouda started everytime, ineffective then taken off? is grant this ignorant? send kalou in for gods sake...

drogba should stop taking freekicks for gods sake....

anyway even 1-0 down i would feel okayish about...but we should give this much much more of a go than this...
and carragher aint that covincing against drogba, and at least a freekick should have been given...

Come on, in Anfield football is being played under different rules. ;)
It's quite obvious both Drogba and Lampard should leave Chelsea. Their hearts lie somewhere else obviously.
our tactics are disgraceful, long ball to drogba who has no chelsea player at least 20 yards near him.......we are showing too much respect and playin like sitting ducks....

send kalou and anelka.....
OMG Lampard! out of shape and sharpness big time....
haha own goal
RIIIIIIIIIIISSSSSSEEEEEE!!!! lovely finish lol. seriously though - it was a real get out of jail card. you escaped with liverpool's luck from the previous rounds. Cech's quality kept you in the game and allowed the slight chance of an equaliser.
1-1, sexy result, funny watching that fat **** on the side line asking for the chelsea players to be booked. :thumbsup: I don't think we played well on the night, defense was bad throughout. However, about the 1-0 result I wasn't worried that much, but 1-1 is just superb.
WOW what can you say.... Risse is :eek:

Fitness was low it seems. Or the fighting spirit seem to be lacking a bit....

Anyway 1-1 is a fantastic result to take :D
