I am asking the question here because of our poor defensive displays of late. In my previous post where I have asked you to give your opinions on what you believe is our strongest back four, and this follows on from that.

We all know Roman wants to see attacking football and being honest AVB has delivered fantastic football at Chelsea. Everything going forward is so much better than last season and no one can deny it is.

The question remains about our philosophy and our balance in defensive areas. It sure is entertaining to see eight goals in a game of football but that's when you win the game. OK, you may have a worry or two about conceding the three goals but scoring five and taking three points is huge WHEN YOU WIN THE GAME. When you are on the receiving end of things you have to take notice and begin to find out what went wrong.

The problem here isn't just a one off though is it. We let in three at Old Trafford and haven't kept a clean sheet since Stoke away on the opening day of the season!.

Like I have said, everything going forward through midfield to our forward line has been great and for me I wouldn't change anything. I love the interplay between our players, the freedom to move about the pitch to create their own space and to express and enjoy themselves.

There comes a time however, where we need to make a decision about our back four. If you have an opinion on who is our strongest defence then please post your thoughts on my last post on here. What I am asking is whether or not we need our right back to push forward in addition to Cole down the left hand side or if we need to stick to a solid base.

Ever since I have been playing and watching the game of football there has always been a belief that if you are to be a successful side you need a solid defensive base to build from. Nobody wins anything if you continue to concede goals.

So I am asking you another question today Chelsea fans and again, I would love to hear from as many of you as possible:

Should AVB now set up his defence to defend first and leave the midfield and forward line to get forward to create and score goals?
