Janne HYesterday we saw good performance from our team. We had Bertrand-Luiz-Cahill-Ivanovic in defensive line and we saw solid performance from these lads. In middfield we saw Mikel and Meireles in DM roles and i have to say that we saw like we have saw many times a bit slow passing from Mikel and a bit dubious Meireles. I wished to see Meireles to be solid and creative but something was missing from my view. One thing i wanted to see from him was to be effective. 60min was played and it was beautifull goal and play from Ivanovic, Cahill, Ramirez and Meireles. His strike was a top highlight of the game. I think we also saw a positive display from Torres. I also believe that Di Matteo wanted to use this formation to light up Torres play and i have to say that he did succeed in his plan. Torres was energetic and he was always active when there was huzzle in front of opponents goal. I wished that we had seen him to take that penalty and i heard that crowd was also singing his name. Overall the performance from our team was good, we defended well and we conrolled the game from the start till the end. We looked dangerous and had many good scoring changes. Most important thing was our WIN and clean sheet. I believe this game will lift our team spirit. What feelings this game left to you? Do you think that we should continue with this formation and what would be your starting XI against Stoke next weekend? Feel free to share your view! KTBFFH!
