Post Match Rant Box: Reading 2, Chelsea 2

Sorry for the lack of posts this week; it has been an extremely hectic last five or so days. Anyway.

Chelsea netted twice in the final five minutes to salvage a 2-2 draw with Reading at the Madjeski on Saturday afternoon. Kalou bagged the first -- I know, shocking -- with an own goal, set up by the towering Alex, providing the late-game theatrics in added time.

I did not get to see the match but, from what I've read, it was far from an ideal display -- though we seemed to improve somewhat during the second half.

Lineups
Chelsea (4-4-2 diamond): Cech (Turnbull 76); Ivanovic (Bosingwa h-t), Carvalho (Alex h-t), Terry (c), A Cole; Mikel, Essien (Belletti 63), Deco (Malouda h-t), Lampard; Anelka (Sturridge 63), Drogba (Kalou 63).

Reading(4-3-3): Federici; Rosenior, Pearce (c), Cisse, Bertrand; Gunnarsson (Bikey h-t), Tabb (Harper 55), Davies (Mooney 63); Robson-Kanu (N Hunt h-t), Long (Church 55), Kebe (Henry 78).

As always, discuss the match right here. If you were there or saw it on the tele, let me know what you thought. Is the 4-4-2 the future -- or should it already be the past? Let me know, people.
