Well where do you start?, what can you say?. As the final whistle blew on Monday night at the Emirates and after the initial feelings to what I had just witnessed, my thoughts turned to tonight and Bolton at home couldn't come at a worse time for Chelsea.

Bolton are flying and you have to hold your hands up and state that some people were surprised when Owen Coyle left Burnley after what he had achieved half way through the season to go to Bolton. What he has done there has been fantastic, got the best out of the players and they deservedly sit sixth in the League just two points behind us!. The fact that if they beat Chelsea they move above us in the League is such an incentive for their side, they will be giving it their all tonight and you have to say they always give us a hard game.

The fact that we now sit fifth in the League and Bolton can overtake us if they beat us tonight just goes to show the state that we find ourselves in, and that's no disrespect to Bolton at all.

Chelsea have been dire, shocking, laboured and have lost games without a fight which is the most disappointing thing for me. If we get beat by putting up a fight and playing at our best then fair enough, but we have been rubbish and Arsenal on Monday night proved it.

Knowing we have just two days before tonight's game could be a blessing in disguise or it could be a hindrance. Carlo has spoken of Chelsea needing a wake up immediately and with that Chelsea need a drastic change of mentality tonight.

This really is no easy game. Bolton will work hard, make life difficult and pressurise the player on the ball. They have two players up front in form in Davies, who always plays well against Chelsea and the Swede Elmander who has impressed me this season. Anything played up to Davies will need to be dealt with, we have to win the first AND SECOND ball tonight.

Chelsea need to impose ourselves tonight on Bolton. Expect a change in formation and expect Essien to play the holding role in place of Mikel tonight who picked up a knock at Arsenal. Now Carlo has a choice of what to do as Anelka is also back tonight. He can either bring in Ramires to battle in midfield for the ball and stick Anelka in for Kalou who played like an idiot other night and next to Drogba and Malouda, or keep Kalou in the side and move Malouda backwards in the midfield next to Lampard.

I predict Kalou will be benched and too bloody right if you ask me. He was useless and should be dropped altogether. Lampard maybe heavy legged tonight after his first 90 minutes on Monday for three months so remember not to expect too much from Frank.

It's not about individuals tonight, it's not about tactics or anything like that, its about the TEAM tonight. Let's see a Chelsea side work hard ALL GAME, play for each other, talk to each other and pass the ball to each other tonight for once rather than give the bloody thing away!.

Chelsea need to match Bolton's work ethic tonight first and foremost, then once we have done that we need to play our football. I can sit here and talk of the threat's we have all over the pitch like I have done week in, week out but I am getting sick and tired of building us up in recent weeks to watch the shower of shit we have seen.

Chelsea after recent weeks are now faced with a crisis. The manager's future is being called into question, players futures are being called into question and our title hopes are being questioned.

It's up to you the players to get out there and do something about it, for the team, for the manager and for us fans. It's alright coming out in the press and talking up a good game, you lot have been doing that for weeks but when it comes to the game itself we have fallen apart.

It's simple, if we don't play well Bolton WILL beat us!. Chelsea must play well. Show us pride in wearing the shirt tonight, show us what you can do and get a result. Anything else will be a disaster!.
