I think the most disappointing bit was the clearances, they hoofed it up field on a number of occasions, giving it straight back to FCK, I think the weather and wet pitch was responsible for the overhit passes in the first half. Zabaleta looks like he wants to score another. Robinho was gutted to miss out on scoring, but tracked back and played well, can he do it away from home?

We have to play to our strengths. And when you have no strong aerial forwards in the team it makes sense to play forward from defence on the ground. Also playing crosses to SWP when he's up against someone a foot taller is aking a bit much. We do need a target man. Hopefully Adriano and not Santa Cruz...
