Chelski v Rovers

Post by mrblackbat » Mon Sep 03, 2007 10:59 am

Can we get anything out of this one? Stamford Bridge is a bit of a fortress these days, and with the current spate of bad refereeing going our way, it might negate any of the great football we've been playing.

If we get a draw, it'll be a great result.

I'm being optomistic and saying we'll get a 2-1 win. :-)

More than a little optimistic, I think.

8-0 to us with 15 macarthy bicycle kicks.

i think we could get a draw though... depends on a couple of chelsea absentees but they are looking a little toothless.

I think they're for the taking away from Stamford Bridge. But they still have that formidable record there, and it counts for something.

Chelski are a hard side to beat...jeez.

Even yesterday they should have really got something out of the game?

That tangle in the box with SWP and Laursen was comical and illustrates the gulf in consistency between referees considering Tugays second yellow..

As I was driving home and listening to the Villa game, Graham Taylor and Greeny were saying how Clattenberg was letting a lot of tackles go and trying to allow the game to flow.

I bet a pound to a pinch of shit that he doesn't do that when he next referees us :o

Yup, we'll most certainly get harsh treatment over every tackle. The stats for yesterday's game regarding freekicks were comical.

I reckon we'll kick the shit out of them and the Chelsea fans will then say what good football we played.

That is not as absurd as it sounds as our good football is being interpreted as XI serial killers at the moment :doh:

Hehe. Sadly, I think not to be.

Mourinho and Roman will be looking for a response from the Chelsea side and while we are unbeaten in 14 i expect a 1-1 or a defeat we just got to do what we did in the fa cup.

What? Lose 2-1 in extra time?? ;)

This is going to be a tough game, hardest one so far. I don't expect we will come away with anything, but I hope I'm wrong.

Stamford Bridge used to be a happy hunting ground for us.
I'd be happy with a point, but i'm optimistic that we might get something more. I think the week break is a bit of bad mews though, as now they have a bit of a chance to regroup, and possibly get some of their injured stars back.
