    Looking forward to this tonight. I've watched the EDS and u-18's quite a bit this season and think that we have a better chance this year than the last two years.

    Take a wild guess.......
    Trying to get a ticket for the away leg is a joke. I rang City this morning and got told they weren't selling any tickets, cos Chelsea were doing it all. I then rang Chelsea and they said they'd sent City an allocation to sell themselves, so I rang City again and they told me that wasn't the case and that for Youth Team games the home club (ie Chelsea) handled all the sales. I then rang Chelsea again and got told they'd just emailed City with confirmation that they (City) had been sent an allocation. I asked if I could just buy a ticket for the Chelsea section and then just move to the City end on the night (the ground was 3/4 empty last year so it'd be no hardship) and got told 'no', and furthermore they wouldn't sell to anyone without a supporter number, so I've now rung City again, who are still adamant they haven't got any tickets, but are going to look into it and call me back. Farcical

    And City have now rung me back to say they (City) will be selling tickets for the away leg, but they don't have any details yet. The advice was to keep watching the club website for news. With only 8 days left til the game and the bulk of the fans likely to go based in the South, and thereby unable to collect the tickets direct from the ticket office, I just hope they get a shift on!

    Same. The physical difference doesn't seem to be as big an issue as previous years and our team is much better as a unit. If we can defend well and keep the ball, then I've no doubt we can open them up and get goals.

    If Latibeaudiere is playing then we'll have a far better chance.

    I'm not even slightly surprised, but after my experience last year I'd try and get one in the City section, as Neanderthal man (and woman) were in the majority in the home section. I suspect it was made up of a lot of Chelsea supporters who can no longer afford to go, from the local estates, it certainly wasn't a particularly pleasant experience.
