I hope Fergie has enough sense to not put Young in the middle.

What the fuck was going on with that ref??

2 out of the 3 were clear penalties.

Anyways, expecting United to run riot now. Watch, a 4:0 coming up.

No real clear cut chances. Long range and tame efforts to the keeper.

Only bright side for me. Torres

Yeah, let's judge a manager on his first game against a very difficult to beat team.

Chelski should have gotten at least one penalty. Bad refreeing for me.

They just need an attacking playmaker and they will be set for the season.

BTW, Alex is such a beast defender. He's awesome in the air plus pretty decent tackler as well. Very underrated defender.

You're judging him on one game. It's fine having an opinion, just make sure it's not a ridiculous one.

Doesnt matter if u watch one second or the full 90 minutes, you cant judge a manager after one match. Chelsea played away from home against a tough side. Not to mention most of the top sides drop points at the start of the season. Arsenal draw, Liverpool draw, wouldnt be surprised if United draw.

I think they're badly in need of a proper winger as well. They'll get nowhere unless they add someone who can make an interesting pass and someone who can beat his man.

Chelsea simply does not have the players to run AVB's system right now. And to be honest, AVB will likely run two squads out there to win the UCL. They are flush with strikers are have a dearth of true wingers.

They NEED Modric, quite badly if I might add. I think that 25 M and a loan of Sturridge would probably get it done, if Mr. Levy isn't being a gargantuan twat still.

I actually like the idea of Sturridge on the right wing for Chelsea. He had a pretty good preseason but your right, they are in need of a player like Modric but also a player like Hulk/Ribery/Johnson etc.

As Calum mentioned:

True, I think they need to sign Modric and get rid of their dead wood in attack, Hulk would be great for them.
