Chelsea fans, do you want to rest the majority of the team for Barcelona; or, would you prefer going for the FA Cup since it's more realistic?
We most likely won't be playing CL football next season, so I want us to give it a real go. It also means it is probably the last tie this group of players will play in the CL together. So yes, I want the key players rested so that we can give it a real go in the CL.
Don't care for the FA Cup. We've won 3 of the last 5, so meh.

Agreed that they could have just put both matches on early Saturday though. Especially since they are apparently moving BGT to a later time anyway. Could have easily fit it in around 4pm or so. Even a fixture tonight would have probably suited all parties but I guess they didn't wanna fuck around with Friday prime time TV.
Yeah, they could have easily has both games on Saturday. But the FA seem to want to screw us or something.
Like I said, I don't blame Liverpool. It's not like this is something they just started doing, they've been doing it since the incident occurred.
Ok, that's enough defending Liverpool... It sickens me. C'mon Everton!
