I think this is our biggest test yet this season, even though we aren't far into it. I think this is where wer'e gonna get an idea where wer'e gonna finish up this season.

I don't see why we can't come away with all three points. But, having said that, is it often Chelsea get beat, and even if they get beat they never get beat the game after, they'll come back fighting, if Pedersen can be arsed I think we'll get at them on wings.

I reckon if we win 1- 0 to us, but overall I reckon 1-1. :-D

I think people are getting a bit carried away! Chelsea will be desperate to get back to winning ways, we'll be lucky to get a draw. Yes we've had a good start but we've only played four Premiership games. If we were in mid-November unbeaten then I would say we stand a great chance of getting something but I can only see defeat in this match.

Chelsea hold the record now for unbeaten home game which is about 67 or around that figure,so they prove that they are the ultimate home team to play against. All the great teams in the history of english football cant compare with Chelsea's currunt run, but you never know.

Runs are there to be broken!

Fingers crossed brad plays one of his best ever games for us and we can smash and grab, santa on nil.

Yeh, I agree, Chelsea haven't been beaten twice on the bounce or at home since as far as I can remember, but it's about time eh?

From BBC website:- Chelsea lost 2-0 at Aston Villa last time out, but have not suffered back-to-back defeats in 43 Premier League outings since the end of the season before last on 2 and 7 May 2006, away to Blackburn and Newcastle respectively.

We were involved the last time it happened so why not now! Although last time they had already won the title and were a bit more relaxed in their approach to us i think.

Setanta or not, any pub that can get the foreign broadcasts will probably have it.

Aye, I'm definitely getting carried away. I can't help it. I just feel stupidly hopeful, what with all Chelsea's injuries. If we lose, I'm going to be absolutely gutted.

Chelsea have no Bridge,Drogba,Lampard,Carvalho and Pizzaro is a major doubt.
Rovers will check McCarthy,Satanta Cruz,Mokoena for fitness.

I think weve got as good chance of any team winning down there, its going to be hard and tight but cmon Rovers we can do it!!! we are in great form and weve got a great team who are capable of beating anyone on there day.

Happy :-D :-D :-D :dancin:

I'd imagine they did exactly what Hughes told them to do, go out and stifle Chelsea. I just hope Samba is okay. :cry:

Defence and Brad were awesome today, but we looked toothless in attack. In the first 15/20 we looked good and were the dominant side, but then we just started to sit back and let them come at us.

Happy about not gettin beat, but just felt we could have gone at them a bit more. IF we'd have kept possession better and passed it around more, rather then hoofing it forward and not using Bentley or Pedersen, we could have got more from the game.
