Come and name what you believe is Chelsea's strongest eleven.


Listen there is plenty of debate at the moment about our players, team selection and substitutions etc. Again last night's was surprising and the fall out afterwards prompted me to have yet another rant at our club!.

What I want people to do right now is look at our squad and the players we have, forget form and favouritism, reported player power at the club and tell me what you personally believe to be our strongest eleven and the side that YOU believe can turn things round for us in the League and in the second leg against Napoli.

At the same time I need you to be realistic because right now, we need our strongest side playing week in, week out because at the moment we look a shadow of our former selves don't we.

I will give you an example, the Napoli players were talking of this being the biggest game for them of recent times and that they are underdogs, the whole town was looking forward to the game and why? Because Chelsea ARE feared around Europe for being a strong side, tough to break down and dangerous in attack. Chelsea have world class players.

They must have thought to themselves after the first ten mins or so, "This is not Chelsea!" and that lies our problem.

We need to get a general consensus of opinion here from YOU the fans on this and if it is dramatically different to the side AVB is picking over the last few weeks then obviously there is a problem.

So just to remind you, I want you to look at our squad, forget individual preferences and form because with playing games people will improve and name the side that WILL get Chelsea out of this mess. It's not about putting people in positions now to see how they will do, name THE strongest eleven we have at AVB's disposal right now (bearing in mind JT is out for six weeks!).

I will start:

Cech, Luiz, Ivanovic, Cahill, Cole, Essien, Lampard, Ramires, Mata, Drogba, Sturridge.

Bench: Hilario, Bertrand, Meireles, Mikel, Kalou, Malouda, Torres.

Cech(though he is totally out of form), cole, cahil, terry, luiz(4),essien(1), lampard, ramires(2), mata(1), sturidge, drogba/torres(2). I would personally go with drogba owing to torres's poor form.

ED a week or so ago u posted an article saying AVB should bring back Romeu, now looking at ur starting eleven and ur bench he doesn't even make ur squad. What's that about? Also one minute ur saying AVB is the problem and then the next he's not and it's the players. U contradict urself all the time. I havent been using this site for long but u just go by what the media say and what u think ppl want to hear.

I think we should play 4-2-1-3 and I know what I'm saying, people.
Cech
Ivanovic - Cahill - Terry - David Luiz
Essien - Meireles
Mata
Ramires - Drogba - Sturridge
Yes, David Luiz at left-back.
Yes, Ramires on the right flank.
Yes, Sturridge on the left flank.

does no-one out there agree that we should be trying to put luiz in the holding
position? he is such a strong
player it's just he can be over
confident at the back
sometimes. prone to mistakes.
cech
bosingwa brana Cahill cole
lampard luiz rami
mata drogba sturridge
