    Don't mind if they just keep producing the players

    am i the only person who thinks this would be a compelte waste of money. the guys release clause is somewhere in the region of 83 million. firstly we already have players like lukaku and kakuta and laukavic and piazon that could be used mlore if we have a clearout in the summer. we also have de buyne and macherhon to develop and they would be good for the team as mata could play behind the striker more often. shevchenko cost 30 million and torres cost 50 million. i don't want to see us spend a vast amount of money on a player that is supposed to be brilliant but then could be a flop for us. AGAIN. also like shevchenko he would be untested in the premier league. in summary would be a waste of money imo

    Ashley Cole is just out of form, he is still one of the best LB in the world.

    Definitely not, I'm with you. That kind of money could be better spent elsewhere.

    Say...a creative midfielder or a left winger?

    ..or, for that kind of money, why not BOTH? :awesome:

    As Unwise said, tell AVB to stop tempting us

    Guys, reports coming in today from the same interview that AVB fears the axe at the end of the season. What do you think's happened cause he says I've felt the confidence but I could be fired tomorrow or in 2 years.

    I really really hope we stick with him, I like him, think he can take us places but as we've said he doesn't have the players. Am really looking forward too next season when people like Malouda and Kalou go and he replaces them with Hulk etc, players he wants and knows and ones who can play the way he wants.

    Valdes is, together with Atletico's Courtois, the goalkeeper with most clean sheets (12) this Liga season
    Possible replacement for Cech in a year or two?

    Should play Mata off him, like the Gerrard-Torres partnership at Liverpool. Then they should buy a left winger (Hazard) and a right winger (Hulk). Chelsea can afford these signings because of Roman. However, I think AVB will stick with the 4-3-3 and Chelsea will end up finishing outside the top four because the strategy isn't suited to the player's strengths.

    No. Essien would be stranded.

    He needs Mata playing off him. He's the only player creative enough in the Chelsea squad tbh. Torres thrived because he had a wonderful player in Gerrard at his peak supplying the balls through the middle and creating room for him.

    His pace has gone, but he should still have that clinical instinct infront of goal that he had for us. I'm baffled by his fall from grace. Is he a sulk on the pitch?

    He doesn't have that clinical instinct atm, his confidence is zero. Some of the misses I've seen from him this season have been ridiculous. I can remember maybe 5 off the top of my head.

    Hulk will be difficult to get from Porto. I don't think we'll end up getting him because they'll want stupid money, and frankly he's overrated anyway.

    It is a pity McEachran has disappeared. He looked like he could have added a lot of creativity to the team like Mata has, together they would really make us a hard team to defend against.

    McEachran next season will be crazy good
