So you're comparing a striker making a mis-timed tackle in order to stop an attack with Eto'o taking Suarez out off the ball when there was absolutely no need to? He gave away a stonewall penalty for NO REASON and we're lucky Webb didn't give it.

The bloke is a fan of the player, not of the team, so thats not surprising at all.

Not winning at Southampton would cancel all our effort on Sunday.

they pick up 5 points out of the last 21 on offer, only won one in there last 7 with 2 draws.

we need to go into this like we did against Liverpool

Hazard Oscar Willian need to start again

Guess Drogba was an idiot as well against Barcelona, with that penalty-gift to Barcelona, no?

Or, again Drogba, he made a stupid foul that cost his team a penalty against Senegal during 2014 WC qualifying; two times idiot, don't you think?

The truth is that when a striker comes back to help defending is always a display of commitment: Oscar negligently lost the ball and Eto'o made all the pitch in reverse in order to help defending; also, Suarez had already lost possession way before the contact, so how can it be a penalty without a ball...

Eto'o gave everything on the pitch and came out with cramps; the only real stupid thing he did has been the foul of the Liverpool's goal: dangerous, useless and totally uncalled for.

Finally, Eto'o performance is rated 7.2 out of 10 on WhoScored: yeah, really PATHETIC.

Oh yes, his beautiful run against an injured defender endend with a pass to the keeper. Wow.

I've come to understand that there are a few people on this board who come here just to defend the opinion they formulated in the past. They watch the game and criticize the players they either don't like or who is playing in the place of the guy they do like.

Very few people here can watch the game objectively and without some personal bias.... I have a Chelsea bais, so when a player comes on and does his job i.e a striker scores the match winner I tend side with the opinion that he had a good game.

Eto'o should start Southampton, he was poor against Swansea but made amends yesterday with a huge goal. If we're not going back into the window for a striker we need some consistency. You get consistency through repetition and Eto'o needs more of that to find a rhythm

I don't think Jose will have many selection headaches. The team practically selects its self with Luiz suspension, Lampard and Bertrand (and Iva?) injuries and all the running that Willian Oscar did against Liverpool.

Honestly I'm not too worried about Southampton, not because they're not an excellent side because they are, but their style of play allows us to play our game. Plus, Jose seemed to have them figured out in the game at the Bridge. They didn't have a single shot after the first minute. Hopefully we can repeat that performance, minus the Essien howler, of course! :lol:

Just hope that the bit of euphoria that follows the result yesterday doesn't effect the effort and application the team put into Thursday's match.

We were outplayed there in the league game last season and I hope that Jose has them ready. We've three away games on the bounce now, all in their own way very tough games.

City and Arsenal aren't dropping many points at the moment so we need to get the wins necessary to cement our top 4 title fighting position, keep pressure on our rivals and our title hopes alive.

Fixed ;)

Oscar, Willian and Hazard must play. They can be rested during the FA cup week. Also Id start Eto'o, after the goal against Liverpool he might have something more to give.

remember last year we're punch 2-1 by Soton??? it's not gonna be easy game. but Mou must rotation his team,, rest Oscar & Willian and play Schurrle Mata...

we absolutely need this 3 point,,just give them more posession and play counter attack more and more...

Eto'o scores today and yet you want Torres to play the next match! How can our strikers become good or consistent if their reward for scoring goals means being dropped in the next match.

he got a toe on the ball u mean? and was shocking the rest of the game , Gave away the free kick for their goal? and could easily have cost us a stupid penalty? I'd be happy if he never plays again

won us the city game..practically won us the europa league , won the corner in the champions league final , scored to ease the tension in the nou camp....Torres has done a load for the club , Eto'o could have lost us that game in the first 5 mins when he should have been sent off , then again when they should have had a penalty!

Schurrle Oscar Hazard

Torres

I'd go with the same.

I don't think this match is that much fitting for Mata as I see him in some lineups. I think if we won't play Willian we can't afford not to play Oscar and I guess Willian is tired after too many minutes lately (in consecutive matches, including 120 against Sunderland). I also think it's fitting for Schürrle to play against them because of his pace. So for me it's either what you suggested or Willian - Mata - Hazard. I'd take your suggestion though, but I guess Jose will repeat Will-Oscar-Eden
