    you've got sooooo many players now

    feel sorry for the likes of Parker, Joe Cole and Johnson who all signed and will really struggle to play now
    To be fair...despite makin quite a few signings this summer....we've actually got rid of a fair few as well. Plus..Mourinho now has his squad of 24 players...which means that players like Cole and Parker probably will play a fair bit...though less so with Johnson as it looks as though he's been pushed into 2nd choice...and if what i stated previously happens with Gallas...he may even become 3rd choice.

    Btw- I think Duff is more of a threat in scoring goals than Robben.

    i think he's more of a threat in general- that's why i would put him ahead

    OMG, Chelsea are absolutely going to rag the Premiership this coming season. It's going to be hilarious; just look at their squad, and now their manager.

    All over Man U, that's it! The end is near!
    Hehehe.....should be intersting!!

    Agreed..as long as his fitness keeps. Ah..wouldn't it be wonderful if both Duff and Robben could play on the right wing as well...imagine...Duff and Robben in attack......AMAZING!

    I think so...and Robben is going to get better and better. One thing that confused me initially...he's built like a brick wall....you'd never had him pegged for a winger would you?! Lol

    i haven't been paying too much attention to him, tbh.....all i know is he is very quick and skillful, which are good qualities for a winger

    Yeah..he is quick...although i think Duff is just slightly faster...but both can put crosses in with pinpoint accuracy....the future's bright....the future's blue

    R4's 7-30 sport coverage this morning. The entire bulletin (apart from the racing tips) was taken up with Sven's sex life. How much further can this soccer obsession go? It's the close season, and England beat the Windies the day before. There must also have been stories from the cricket tote sport leaguge and Wigan Rugby League had announced a major signing. None of this got a mention. Soccer soccer soccer. Why bother pretending it's a sports bulletin at all?

    To cap it all there are now three threads running on here about Patrick Viera <yawn>!

    Robben will be converted into a striker before too long. Well, I say converted, but seeing as though he's played there most of his life anyway, including most times the season before last when Kezman was injured and his season in the youth team when he scored 50 goals. The problem he had in Holland will be the same problem he has here, only it will make him look even worse. Pace. Or probably more accurately, acceleration. He's got quick feet and he's extremely skillful with one hell of a left foot, but he relies too much on skill to beat a man, rather than pace, which will be his downfall in the Premiership, in my opinion, unless of course, he plays upfront (which he should, because it's his best position).

    What I can't believe is Chelsea have spent all this money (including 20M for Carvalho! They could have got Nesta for that (Real got Samuel for less)) and they haven't bought a player in the position they need the most - right wing. As in, a right winger, not a right midfielder. Someone like Joaquin would have been perfect. Anyway.....

    ......................Cech (Cuducini's better atm but Cech's potential is such I'd throw him in now)
    ....Ferreira Carvalho Terry Bridge
    Geremi.....Lampard Parker.......Duff
    .......................Robben
    ..............Kezman

    Agreed...i couldn't think of a really good player we have for the right wing....but i suppose most of the players we have can fill in adequately there.

    You'd leave gallas out?

    I know, I know. £20M on a player who is a carbon copy (sort of) of Gallss just a tincey wincey bit bettter. Waste of money in my opinion. But as you've probably guessed from that, I think Carvalho is slightly better than Gallas. Only just mind.

    I'd be tempted to put Gallas at right back instead of Ferreira mind.
