bosingwa---terry---alex---cole

mikel

essien---zhirkov

lamps

drogba---anelka

subs: ivanovic, sheva, mancienne

i could see Chelsea putting 4 up today. Maybe anelka getting a brace early and hopefully sheva gets his goal today.

mm, i thought maybe Chelsea would flog club america, but they have beaten both Inter and AC, Inter via Penalties and 2-1 over Milan..

So i cant see us thrashing them, But Big Drogs is in form, and Club to play a odd style of play.

I expect this to be the biggest challenge thus far in the preseason.

maybe i am a little over confident (and maybe disregarding club america some), but i don't understand how this could be the biggest challenge thus far? sure, they beat inter and ac milan, but do you really feel both of those teams were taking the respective matches seriously, or at least as seriously as the matches against Chelsea? i feel the club america matches were taken as warm ups essentially to practice tactics...just my opinion.

that being said, because of the depth of Chelsea (and since there's a new coach), i feel players will be out to prove their worth (see malouda, deco, sheva, etc.) and should play as if first team football (and essentially a place on the Chelsea side) are in jeopardy. i still see Chelsea in a rout.

It's not that I think they're going to be more talented, I just expect them to put forward a stronger effort than either of the Milans. Also I expect the squad to be their first team squad. Lastly Mexican squads have a lot of pace and skill so we'll see. I just don't think this one's a given. I expect Drogba to be dominant though because I doubt Club America has any real size at the back.
