Well, we have a very good back up in Gael Clichy (he is pretty much a clone!). Cole only has 2 years left. If he refuses to sign new contract then we should sell him for £20million to Chelsea. Really hope he stays but its pointless keeping an unhappy player.

Yeah - agree with ur last statement there Party Boy. Tho they'll probably try and get £30m or sth for him! To really milk it!

Well done Man City for the 0-0 with Chelsea yesterday!! Only 9 points the gap now!

The Chelsea fan thinks it would be best if he lays low for a couple of days. I know I should be greatfull but just a quick whinge, we haven't got another home game for over a month now and that's a Champions League game. That is unless we need a replay with Newcastle!

9 points is not a huge amount, esp when you still have to play Man U away. As an Arsenal fan, we are only 2 points behind Man U. If Man U can be considered still contenders, then surely so can we! Our next 5 games are against teams in lower half of league. IF we can win all those games (we need to), then it will put some pressure on Chelsea. Esp as their next game is away to Everton -tough game.

Agreed. That's looking a tough one for them now. Especially if Robben and Drogba are still both missing.

Who needs those two when Kezman is currently playing in the World Class bracket?

I don't know how difficult Everton's going to be, I can't see them finishing where they are at the moment and they were played off the park by Southampton yesterday.
Chelsea's run in isn't that difficult the Man United game is going to be posponed and by the time Arsenal visit the Bridge the title should be wrapped up. That game will have nothing to trouble us as long as the ref is remotely neutral. All the other games are very winnable.

tarquin, some good points. One thing tho, without Robben, Chelsea do seem to be less fluid and not so much of a threat. Granted, that your defence is amazing. However, it might take one bad result or a couple of draws in a row to set some doubt in.

Maybe its wishful thinking on my part!

MY ideal 11 for England v Holland 2moro nite...

Robinson

Cole
Terry
Brown
G.Neville

Wright-Phillips (Right Wing)
Gerrard
Lampard
Downing (Left Wing)

Rooney
Defoe

Won't happen tho, cos Sven still likes to kiss Beckhams ass and keep him in, even tho he hasn't turned in a good national preformence since the Greece game before the last world cup.
Wright-Phillips should be given a chance in this friendly, as should Downing. Bring on Beckham later in the game, and let John Terry or Gerrard captain the side until then.

I actually think we are missing Drogba more than Robben, Kezman has started 4 Premiership games this season we've won 1 drawn 2 and lost 1. That is awful.
The Robben factor is made worse by the fact that Joe Cole remains incapable of playing a decent final ball and Duffer looks exhausted.

On England let's be open minded and try to avoid Wes Brown going anywhere near the ball.
