    In two days, we'll be making a short trip to the Stamford Public Library to play the Roman Abramovich All-Stars. We'll go in with some momentum after that dramatic draw at Charlton (thanks Qu3!), while CSKA might be reeling a bit after losing John Terry to injury and settling for a draw at home against Reading.

    That said, I think Coleman might favor a more defensive formation against a still-stronger team. The best I'm hoping for is a draw, or a 0-1 win on a counter if lucky.

    RE: Fulham vs CSKA London

    I will be watching on FSC Saturday morning with my [at Fog's request] unlaundered McBride jersey. Wish I could be as positive as krhimself, but The Poo were going to be tough enough during normal times. After two sub-standard outings in a row, they're going to be loaded for bear, wolf, aardvark, and gnu. My greatest hope is that we don't add to our injury list. COYW; stay out of Emergency Ward 10!

    Same lineup as against Charlton except Claus starts instead of HH. No score prediction.

    Good call on the line-up, Don. Claus floats to the front anywho, so kind of a mid-striker. I think the squad will be ramped up in one for the ages.

    Bench:
    John
    Zakuani
    Runstrom
    Omozusi
    Latsuvka

    Final: Chelscum 1-1 Fulham

    RE: Fulham vs CSKA London

    For any hattrick players we have here, its clear to me that Fulham has PIC'd the last two matches, and with the team spirit up we are ready to MOTS this Saturday. It will be nice to have Claus' set piece abilities back, as that has been clearly missed in the past couple weeks

    Niemi
    Rosenior Christanval Boca Qu3
    Routledge Brown Jensen Radzinski
    McBride John

    Bench:
    Volz
    Runstrom
    Zakuani
    Omozusi
    Lastuvka

    Final: 2-2, goals by Tomasz "White Ronaldinho" Radzinski and Cyborg McBride. Drogba falls down at least twice.

    That Charlton game was heartening in that they battled back to get something out of what seemed to be a sure loss. It was disheartening as the Fulham defense was as thick as a wet t-shirt and provided just as much coverage, leading to a botched lead and requiring a miracle to get any points.

    Fulham NEEDS to be on top form against Chelsea. They have battled back from nearly a sure loss/tie against Wigan to win it late. Fulham has to play full bore for 90 minutes. That means no resting, no sloppy passing (so many potential scoring opportunities/attacks were blown due to an errant pass in the Charlton, it made me sick), AND IF A LONG BALL IS GOING TO THE KEEPER ONE OF THE DEFENDERS SHOULD CLEAR IT OUT. Sorry on the caps, the Bent goal still infuriates me.

    Anyway, let's try a diamond 4-4-2. Or a regular 4-4-2 with these roles:
    GK: Niemi
    D: Rosenior Christanval Volz Quedurue
    DM: Brown
    M: Routledge Radzinski
    AM: Jensen
    F: McBride Helgueson

    Bench: Lastuvka, Omozusi, Runstrom, Bocanegra, John (who stays far the hell away from the pitch - offsides calls don't win games, Cookie)

    Well, losing Claus sucks big wazoo, but if we can keep John onside this might be a great chance for him to showcase his undoubted talent.

    Op? FFC? Gonna be in the Chatroom tomorrow? I'll be there cursing at FSC and tapping away on the laptop.

    COYW!

    The 3,200

    Fulham fans have sold out their allotment of tickets so we'll be bringing 3,200 supporters. We will probably get hammered but its all about making Chelsea realize that Fulham is a real football team with real supporters.

    RE: The 3,200

    Good news for the superstitious crowd - I'm going to have to go into work for a few hours tomorrow morning. I'll miss the game, but Fulham has taken at least a point in every league game this season played while I was at work.

    Thanks for the kind words, PCB. Just pinch hitting for ChiTom.

    Hmmm; kinda makes you want to run right out and buy my book, don't it? :3d smile:

    Well I'm really pretty pesimistic about this one. With our injuries it'll be real tough. If were to be competitive we have to step it up big time from the last match.

    Despite my negative outlook I'm really excited to go to the match. I learned a new song the other night that goes somthing along the lines of

    "black and white you'll never pass; shove the blue flag up your ass"

    It'll sound great with 3,200 hundred singing it :D

    Let's take it to the Chelsea bastards. I cringe at the very mention of the Blue Poo and I'm a long ways away from England. I can't imagine if I lived there...probably would have been in a fight or two :).

    The Times Online has a preview of the game, looking at both teams We're going to see John and McBride up top. Here's the key section relevant to the game:

    I love that quote so much, I bolded it. I also hope John causes problems for the blueshi(r)ts moreso than the good guys. I also hope I don't hurt my head banging it against the wall for the eventual offsides calls.

    as someone wrote earlier (too lazy to quote them), i also am really excited for this match...although i feel it will be a total demolition. nevertheless, if we can shut drogba down, things may be interesting. i think he's scored like 99% of their goals the past few matches. i know its an obvious/impossible thing to ask, but its a starting point.

    come on fulham!

    My goodness, we've just taken the lead at the Library. :shock: Can it last? We'll have to see.


    EDIT: Almost half-way through the match, all I hear on the live stream are Fulham fans. Let's keep that going!
