At least my seat was good
will never happen, FA cup is the only trophy >we can win and hiddink will play the strongest team possible then sub on matic for mikel in the 80th minute if we have a 6 goal lead
should be more than enough to get through the game, strong defensive unit and very experimental further forward
will be interesting to see who starts up top as Costa shouldn't play this game, Remy is always injured and probably wants away in january, Falcao news has just been announced that Monaco don't want to take him back, but he's probably still "injured"
then there's Traore and Bamford, the latter tricky as i he's in the squad here he's not allowed to be loaned to another team this season iirc
>bamford getting a single minute outside of injury time time wasting
mikel is going to be the starting striker
Nordfeldt, Shephard, Amat, Bartley, Tabanou, Cork, Grimes, Shelvey, Emnes, Montero, Gomis.
Kyle Bartley is Swansea captain today...
Remember when we thought Tabanou would be a good signing for swansea? I think I had him in my fantasy team up until like 2 days before the first round
Fuck sake, they're resting a good few players then yeah? We're playing them mid-week. Tell Matic to do us a favour and knack Gomis for us? I'll be your friend.
United fan here. Who will we sign?
Really curious who the club will buy in January. And I have a feeling they'll spunk 300m in summer too, trying to chase "muh world class" (neymar/bale) and other squad fillers.
Playing the boys and backups today lads, we literally could not give one shit about this game.
RDL - Benny - Wasil - Chilwell
Dyer - Inler - King - Gray
----- Panayiotou - Kramaric -----
Don't bother watching.
Scheduled Vardy's operation just so he could miss this.
Mahrez will be on bench, Marc Albrighton could start, he did in the League Cup games.
Morgan has been in top form but is in need of a rest.
I will only be satisfied if Ranieri starts Hamer over Schwarzer today, Schwarzer lost us the game in the League Cup vs Hull.
youre having a laugh pal, Ranieri said it will be a blend of players who deserve some time to play and 'the same mentality'
Panayiotou and Hamer deffo wont start, Benny and Dyer probably wont and Inler might not.
Every so often he or another youth gets a chance. Chilwell will 100% start today though, need to get him starting so he'll sign his long term contract.
I fully expect Wasilewski to throw some elbows and tactically place his foot in challenges, especially if Kane or Erickson are playing. Wasilewki is perfect at fucking oppositionup.
>being outplayed by a team managed by the product of Paul Whitehouse and an ape
The Kassam has to be one of the worst stadiums ever because of that.
Apparently it was supposed to have four stands but only three were built.
They're meant to be having the fourth built at some point: http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/news/12870467.Kassam_looks_at_finishing_stadium_with_fourth_side_but_with_260_homes_on_car_park/
This Paki learns a little English, comes to 4chan to pick on grammar
he looks up to the Germans, he was born a year after WWII, wants be called Mr. Fahrenheit because he wants to be like Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit
nothing to do with the units really
British TV weather forecasts started using centigrade in 1962, but there followed a long period in which both systems were used side by side because older generations still thought in Fahrenheit. I remember on TV just 10-20 years ago weathermen on the TV would quote temperatures using both measures. I don't think they do that any more though.
Oxford United are actually playing well, wouldn't be surprised if they took this to a replay or even won
Begovic; Ivanovic (c), Zouma, Cahill, Azpilicueta; Ramires, Fabregas; Willian, Oscar, Pedro; Diego Costa.
Chelsea subs: Courtois, Terry, Baba Rahman, Mikel, Loftus-Cheek, Kenedy, Traore.
sad.. and what's worse is that it's going to be 2-1 until like 80' when oscar goes off for mikel
nothing has changed

>no one posted the best one
>just give us a goal and then we'll ruin them 4-0 at home
so much this, i'm just saying lads we'll play a proper squad at home and we'll keep an easy clean sheet, we've literally got two youth full backs and Kyle fucking bartlet
here mate, I'll babysit your wife's daughter if you want to go watch the game
>not using headphones
enjoy your shit sound quality & inevitable tinnitus Panjeet
also I wouldn't do any of that, I'd just make a thread on here afterwards saying how I kicked his paki ass
no supporting the team i love till the end don't give a shit mayt
we should've played a reall fucking defense desu.
hate kevin friend the welsh hating twat
he's no friend of mine
Sennheiser HD-25, had mine for 5 years, amazing quality, I've set them on fire by accident once and they still work as good as they did day 1.
I'm never buying anything else. In fact I'm considering buying an extra pair in case they get discontinued (which they won't, been around since the fucking 80's)
you do realise this is the only way to save chelsea's season?
they're out of the capital one cuck
and they're never going to win the champions league, so the fa cup is the only thing they have left
>not downloading lossless
you're right though, doesn't matter what headphones you have if you listen to shitty mp3 files
he could play on better teams than Chelsea tbf

HAHAHAHA GET FUCKED YOU UGLY GINGER CUNT FUCK YOU! OXFORD OXFORD OXFORD OXFORD!
THREE STANDS AND A GARDEN FENCE THREE STANDS AND A GARDEN FENCE~~~~~!
You say premier league team, yet they had a reserve or the reserve team out.
Meaning a shit team that plays together week after week, played kids and shit reserves who rarely play together.
Oxford also had to dive to get a goal.
Chelsea are singing about us again lads. We must be massive...
so much this
>shepard 0 pl apps
>tabanou 0 pl appls
>amat 0 pl apps this season (to my knowledge)
>nordfeldt 0 pl apps
>emnes 0 pl apps this season
now you realise how shit the team was, not even mentioning kyle fucking bartley who is apparently a pl quality player
If Oxford don't get promoted (and going off past seasons, they won't) he'll probably got for £100k+. Ryan Taylor needs to go too, what a terrible signing he was. Slecombe (GK not the midfielder with a very similar name in the team) will probably go too, he's too good for L2. Buchel is an international level GK (don't look up which nation he plays for thou, pls). The main problem is Oxford has been fucked by shitty chairmen for about 20 years. First Kassam built the 'entertainment' area where a 4th stand of the stadium would go, meaning the stadium can't be extended that way any more unless he gives up the parking lot. He never invested money into the club. Despite making good sales off players like Dean Windass, it wasn't invested wisely and just lined his pockets. Then he left and another dude came in, didn't do anything either. He then left and a consortium took over last year, they've done nothing as well.
>League 2 side
>HUR DUR Y U BRAGGIN???
Shut up Sharp Facial Features man, you got #rekt by a shitty League 2 side.
City. It's amazing if you're a chink or a nip, because, "muh education". But it's expensive as fuck, only London is more expensive than Oxford(shire), it's got a shitty layout in the centre, they delay investments due to shitty county councils and if it wasn't for the university (or universities, since Brookes is also in Oxford) we'd be a literally who and our only claim to fame would be "We were the Parliament Forces Capitol during English Civil War" - Lot of good that did, fuck Cromwell, he ruined so much shit.
>all these self proclaimed oxford united fans appearing out of the woodwork
fuck off man, not heard of you all year you shit cunts, go back to arselicking /arse/ or shiterpool you plastics
>Not really a city, but because of history it gets a special badge.
Oxford and St Davids have cathedrals. They are actual cities.
Sunderland is an example of the city you're describing.
I support Oxford as they're my home team, talking about it on /sp/ would be stupid, as, you know what? They're a League 2 side and the chances are nobody would be there to talk to about them. Besides, there are other places to talk to about them, like real life mates.. outside. I know you can't fit through a doorway due to being the size of an xbox, but some people have lives m8.
And? It's still 3 leagues above L2. I'd be celebrating whomever it was, the fact it's an EPL side makes it all the better. I celebrated when they scored against Arsenal (thou it was ruled offside) several years ago in FA Cup despite Arsenal being my "relevant" team to support.
Cities are Cities if they have a Cathedral. Christ Church is a Cathedral, therefore it's a city.
I've been to Oxford lad, it's not that big a city, but I guess, technically, you should call it a city.
>if it wasn't for the university (or universities, since Brookes is also in Oxford) we'd be a literally who
there you go
still, there are nice spots in oxford
yeah and I supported Swansea in a worse position than where Newport are now. I'm entitled to a sense of superiority in consideration to all these fucking maggot plastics
why don't you gas yourself you bloated greasy tripcunt
