Name the Starting Eleven - Brentford (a)

Name the Starting Eleven - Brentford (a)

It`s the magic of the cup this weekend with the small matter of a trip, down the road, to Griffin Park.

It`s a tie fraught with danger, a tie where Goliath comes face-to-face with David.

With a hectic fixture schedule ahead of us, will Rafa Benitez risk playing a weakened team or with yet another trophy having passed us by (the Capital One Cup) will Rafa look to blow The Bees away?

Purely for fun, but we hope also slightly addictive, we`re asking you, the Vital Chelsea membership, to select the starting eleven you think Rafa will opt for.

Take it away folks!

cech , azpi , ivanovich , terry , bertrand , lampard , ramires , mata , oscar , marin , ba . we lack so much in depth ... we are even worse than last season our first 11 is great , but injuries and offloading players without replacing them is proving costly .. who did we get replace the departing , miereles , essien , ballack , makalele ??? ,... we havent bought in a natural defensive midfielder since maka left ...

4-2-2-2... Cech- Azpi-Cahill-Terry-Ryan [Rami-Oscar] Marin-Boga Ba-T9. Mata and Lamps must rest.

We can't go far with rafa, why turn our players to average players all of a sudden? Most PL teams have dipped into the transfer and the premierleague will be tougher than before so we need to preserve our players, hilario, betrand, cahill,terry,todd kane,ake,rammy,baker,marin,feruz,kiwomya, rest our mata,oscar,lamps,cech,iva,cesar, cole, ba for our next PL games

just bring up someone from the U-21 or U-18 team to play CM in the pivot. Anyone competent to pass the ball...DO NOT MAKE THE SAME STUPID MISTAKE by playing Lampard/Ramires in the pivot..two box to box players that are neither creative playmakers passers. These two should NEVER play together and should only play in a 4-3-3 formation...What say you RAFA? you going to make the same DUMB ASS mistake again? PARK THE BUS anyone?
