    Cool Stick with Vs Go for?

    Hello amigos!

    "I went for Chelsea back in August so I guess I will stick with them but really, it could be any one of three for the title."
    Do they have the same meaning in the sentence above? What verbs could be used in place of them?
    Thanks,
    Sam

    do they have the same meaning in the sentence above? no, "went for" indicates a choice. "stick with" means 'stay with'.

    what verbs could be used in place of them?
    i (chose)(picked) chelsea back in august, so i guess i will stay with them.
