I don't think there's any hard and fast rule in football? I'm sure rugby is three weeks but obviously there's a greater chance of getting another serious knock in rugby.

Hope Naismith remembers how good he was when he came on as thats exactly what we want from him every game!

Must be confusing enough for him as it is the way he goes from scapegoat to saviour on a weekly basis!
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

hope we can get our general mentality sorted for this one, we looked inches from calamity far too often v Swansea and if we were playing Chelsea we'd have lost for sure

the positive probably is that they will be too bothered about playing their football to bother focusing on pressing

One big game can change momentum. At the moment it's hard to see us in our current form winning the game but if we could find a way to do it it would give us a much needed boost in confidence that could make a huge difference in the run in.

Is it too much to hope for a couple of games against Chelsea where they can't find a way to score?
against city they were not very impressive ,should beat them 0-1

Hope I'm not talking too soon, but the way Mourinho sets up his teams is not the way that is likely to tear teams apart.  I can't recall them hammering us for many a year.

They beat us 3-0 there a couple of years ago under AVB

3-1 I think. Vellios scored.

We got beat 1-4 in the cup and 0-3 in the league in 05/06.

Since then we've drawn 5 and lost (the last) 2 in the league. We've also lost the 1st leg of the LC semi 1-2 but won on pens in the FA Cup.

Correct - I was there - He scored shortly after coming on - and they didn't hammer us.

It'll be interesting to see how we approach this.

As you say Mourinho will be happy to concede possession but then look to spring forward with Hazard etc

I thought this was a Sunday fixture, and I was already pissed about it not being on TV (and DVRable, since I have a Sunday brunch date).  Then I saw this thread, and am overjoyed at needing to set my alarm to get up early on Saturday.

There will be no further debate whether 4th is still even a remote possibility, after this result.  Win = yes, Loss/tie = no.

and them, Mourinho has done that but he's also a tactician and I'm sure it won't have escaped him that we've had trouble against high pressing teams

last time we won here I believe was with a Paul Rideout goal in a 1-0 victory.  Later that season we won the FA cup final against a Manchester Club with the same player scoring and us winning by the same scoreline. Lets hope Steven Naismith bags a winner at Stamford Bridge and then repeats the feat in the FA cup final!
