    everyone but Romeu is available with the ACN players back and Ba (Euro tied) and Luiz (Euro yellow cards) back in as well

    putting it simply for me- if Ba starts we win

    Have to agree, but with one caveat. He needs to play the full 90. If Torres, starts he gets 90 minutes and doesn't impress over the 90. If Ba starts, he gets 65 minutes and scores a goal but is subbed off for Torres.

    My point is that we to do well in this cup, which is why we need Ba to start. He'd have 20 league goals this season if he was given the opportunity to play regular minutes.

    Start Ba and if we're up by two or more bring Torres on and play both up front. Try something different and see how it goes.

    Although, I doubt our ability to get two goals under the current manager. It feels like a lottery with what performance we'll see from the team.

    Last season I would have said the same. This season, no way. He's been given ever opportunity to succeed here, and the fact is that he hasn't.

    What I got from the comments is that the guy has mental issues and is never going to be the same.

    Just wanted to clear up that I was referring to the comment section at the bottom of the article moreso than Benayoun's comments. Not that I agree with Yossi... at all.

    Yossi said Torres is not handling the pressure of the transfer price which seems ......fair ..

    was that a striker on the back post?

    surely not. :D

    Ivan heads back across goal but too high for Ba.

    I like the line up and we are playing pretty decent atm.

    Ba probably should have done better there

    The Yossi comments rather miss the point that his poor form continued from the end at pool. Even if it hadn't, I can`t see how he`s been poorly handled. He`s just been largely useless. That`s nobody`s fault but his.

    I have been impressed with the pressing of Brentford

    forcing us to play long over the top

    Moses getting lots of change (and kicks) down his side

    cuts it back to Lamps, who scuffs it, and the follow up from Oscar is blocked over the top

    better

    "Chelsea seem more comfortable playing away from home without the hostility of the fans"

    the biggest lie being perpetuated by the media atm.

    I am sure it has nothing to do with the hosting team not parking the bus in front of their fans and actually attacking us which plays into what little strength we have as an attacking team.
