So mark Clattenberg has commented about Poch telling our players to "be a bit naughty" he is intimating that the battle of the bridge could be re-run at Wembley.
Well I still stand by the fact that if he had booked the three Chelsea players in the first half as he should have then the "battle of the bridge " would never have happened.
He is hiding behind the "I wanted to keep eleven a side on the pitch" when in fact his lack of action in the first half caused indirectly the mayhem in the second half.Wanker

The battle of the bridge was one of my favourite games ever - top five for me. Not because of the result but because of how filthy and dirty we were... loved it. Shame about the result though

I want six goals for us this evening. Im just a tad worried Chelsea will do to us what we did to Arsenal i.e. won the league game and revenge is returned

Its a funny one, because even a narrow defeat tonight wouldn't stop me believing that we would still go through. We just that good away from home.

Not for me mate. Lose this tonight and I don’t think we are going through. Get a comfortable win tonight and we can afford to grab a draw at Stamford bridge. All rests on tonight’s game for me.

It’s all about tactics.

In the league game they wanted 3 points.

Tonight, they want to avoid worse than a 1-0 defeat... park the bus and counter... but what do I know... they might anticipate that Poch will anticipate that and try to attack relentlessly.

They will be up for this methinks. Need a positive result to take to their cess pit. Without Sonny then and if we don't do the business tonight I don't know if we'll have enough in our locker to get through. So, basically COYS

How strict are Wembley at the minute on this A4 bag policy? will slightly larger than A4 get me in trouble?

It might, especially as tonight is likely to be particularly high security. I've definitely seen them take out the bag-measuring things and turn people away, although others have got away with it.

It always annoys me that a ref sometimes turns a blind eye to a poor/bad challenge early on yet come the second half, and something similar happens, he will not hesitate to get his card out. In the Wolves game one of their players blatantly obstructed/pulled back to prevent an early counter-attack and got away with it, yet Eriksen for a similar offence was immediately shown a card later in the game.

Remember the days when the CBs used to go right through the back of the striker in the first few minutes to “let them know that they are there” and always got away with it, namely Adams and Bould

You're out-Poching Poch, mate. He said tactics are only secondary.
