Cahill - Don`t Rule Us Out!

When we, sometime in the future, look back on the season 2012/2013, we`ll forever wonder why it all went pear-shaped.

Of course we`ll throw into the equation the usual managerial upheaval, but we`ll forever ponder over how a team that could play so fluently, leading the pack, stutter so many times and slip way off the pace set by the two Manchester sides.

But amidst all the fog, is there a chance that that fluent football could return and prove to be our salvation?

Gary Cahill, ahead of the trip to play Swansea in the Capital One Cup semi-final second leg, believes that if we can string a run of results together, something remarkable could happen, with the centre-back remarking,

"We possess the players and class to massively hurt teams. But we haven`t been doing that on a regular basis and consistency is now the key to everything."

"We still look at what Manchester City and United are doing in the league because there have been so many times this season when we`ve almost got ourselves back in there and let it slip."

"But we are more than capable of winning 9 out of 10 games and let`s see where it takes us."


That`s, in our current position, what`s needed, a positive attitude.

And as for the venture into a foreign land, tomorrow evening, Cahill added, in the media,

"Swansea will probably have enjoyed watching us having to work so hard against Arsenal on Sunday, but they will also have seen what we are capable of."

"It`s one of the biggest games of the season for us and, though it`s going to be tough to turn things around, it`s not beyond us."


It certainly isn`t but it`ll take one hell of a performance to get us out of this mess and, as the pundits are so fond of saying, the next goal will be crucial!

Well we can win if rafa pull on his thinking cap and not start torres, he should have understand by now that we are redundant when he is playing, if we start our strongest line up and are clinical in front of goal, we can suprise them, but seriously, I am not convinced about rafa's tactical nous, as far as I am concerned it is non existent, I really hope he proves me wrong come may

If there ever was a match for Rafa to start Ba and Torres together this is it. We need to get two goals and fast...even if he does not start El Nino with Ba if by first half end we are not two goals up he better deploy both of the two strikers we have into the game. That being said this will still be a big ask..Swansea has lost very few games at the liberty stadium this season and none if my memory serves me well by 2 or more goals.If we can pull this is of it will be a major confidence boost...i am not holding my breath on that happening though.

I doubt that will ever happen GabeU. Rafa's not the type to show flexiblility in terms of formation. I know for sure we will start with Ba,but it will be the same 4-2-3-1. As much as I think tactics and formation might play a role in this one,character and hunger to win plays a bigger role...I'm going to try and be at my optimistic best,even though the realist in me thinks otherwise.

I thought Torres does not like playing with another forward. As for the game itself I just hope we take the confidence from winning on Sunday into South Wales.

@Elbows...who cares what Torres likes?...he plays for cfc and not the other way round...the coach will do what he thinks is best for the team...and I am afraid torres has no choice than to obey...hopfully we'll be free of both come summer....I mean FSW and FT9.

winning this game will require a turnaround of Napoli proportions from last season, the difference is that this game is to be played at their home ground whereas Napoli was at SB. All they need is one goal to make things very difficult for us...My expectations around this are thus low, but this is footie and stranger things have happened...Lets GO
