    We should be good enough to get through but we need to score 4 if they get 1 which could be a very big ask. On the plus side we won't set up as if its Barca we're playing in the home leg, shocking that we only brought on an out and out forward for the last 8 minutes. Should be close to a sell out so if we come out the traps and get an early goal then I reckon we should be fine. Can see a very tense, nervy last 10 minutes though.

    Not sure if Arsenal were good or if Fenerbache are that bad.

    A lot more than that! £93 million was what I've heard, if that's the exchange rate then my holiday budget is nearly halved! About $145 million. Quite a bit for a one footed, cheating, diving bastard (Yes I'm still bitter about the Wales v Scotland game) but I suppose he'll compliment Ronaldo nicely.

    i disagree with sinking ship, i think spurs did a good job retooling with that money even before they sold him. maybe you were being facetious tho...

    Only question is where does Willian fit, so many midfielders!! Would chelsea really sell Mata to Man U? Also known as on of the russian billionaire's favorite players? Oscar is diabolical in the middle.

    they signed like 10 guys... i was being a smart arse. most say they 'won' the transfer window... though Chelsea stealing Willian may change/alter some of those perceptions. --word is maybe they pull bale back now.
    Its not like Bale is going to purgatory mind you, but I personally will see a lot fewer of his games.

    if Mata goes to man u it is in a rooney deal imho.
    i REALLLLLLY hope Chelsea doesn't do that.
    i think rooney is a shell of his former self and Mata has been the best player at Chelsea for a couple of other coaches.

    IF they keep Mata and forget adding a striker; well, they'll be playing Spain ball with 5 attacking midfielders before we know it....

    No true #9(Torres, Ba or Lukaku) in the starting 11. And no Mata starting. It really is looking as if Mata will be gone and he is a player I really like. Wayne Rooney will be starting for Man U.

    Chelsea lacked some creativity around the box today. They could not find any good final passes or shots. A tie is still a good result on the road. I think it will get interesting this final week of the transfer window for a few teams.

    All I have to say is NBC is on top of their Premier League game!

    NBC Sports is awesome.

    Played with no striker first half. Both teams were not able to create offensively, but mostly Chelsea. No confidence in Ba, Lukaku and Torres??
