Chelsea fan here - Hmmm, obviously this guy was interviewed before you bought Aguero (shrewd purchase by the way). In a 4-2-3-1 formation I would say Hart in goal, a back four of Richards-Kompany-Lescott-Kolarov, 2 defensive midfielders (Toure, De Jong), then Johnson on the right, Milner on the left, David Silva through the middle. For the lone striker role... Who would you choose? Gamble on Aguero as it will be his first competitive and important game with City? Hmmm, no, I would say Tevez or Dzeko and then introduce Aguero as a second half substitute, in the 60-65th minute or so. Someone's with me? And please, kick their arses.

Aguero's not likely to start, I'd say a 15-20min cameo at the end if anything. I'd go with what you've said FrLamp except I'd have Balotelli instead of Johnson out wide and Dzeko leading the line.

Tudor. You might be being optimistic claiming Wembley will be packed to the rafters. It looks as though only one half will be packed and it is that of the wrong colour!!

true on that ped, seems some city fans are not bothered about the Charity shield, But it's against the rags and a cup after 90 minutes,so if you can afford it, get a ticket, they are on open sale now.....i just fancy us to DO em again,and on to bigger things come May..

Would love to go and can actually afford it at the moment, but therre is not a cat's chance of me being able to take the time off work at the moment - it's 7 days a week for me during the summer. Might even have to listen to it on the radio rather than watching it in the pub if I haven't finished my current job. What a fair-weather fan! LOL
