Well Done Scolari Deco for Chelsea

Premier League Chelsea

Just like to say that is a magnificent coup for chelsea. Ronaldo played well for Portugal against Czechs and Deco still made him look average.

Looking forward to seeing his skill light up the Premiership as long as he doesnt rot on the bench like SWP did

Deco would be a great asset for the blues but we must keep Riccy and Lamps

How do you see Chelsea's midfield next season? Choose 4/5 from Deco, Lamps, Ballack, Essien, Joe Cole, SWP, Malouda, Makelele, Mikel. I couldn't. I'd take a stab at 4-1-3-2. With Essien deep and Deco siitng just in front of Lamps and Ballack. But it's tough to leave out Cole and SWP.

The big issue can big Phil control all the ego's including his in that dressing room. you forget the key that is chemistry, you can have all the skill but you need chemistry in order for a team to be successful.

I really hope Lamps stays, with him and Ballack playing either side of Deco our midfield could be awesome. I hope J.Cole keeps his position, and we need a new winger the likes of possibily Ronaldinho. Getting a great new striker could be tricky, seeing as Villa isn't interested, and he's going to have to be super special to achieve what Drogba has done. Also hope Big Phil stays for a good few years, despite the ups and downs that may come along. I'm so excited this is a new blue revolution lads!

Deco is a cultured player, and as a Liverpool supporter I'd be well jealous of Chelsea if they got him. He's good for at least another 3 seasons if he can steer clear of injuries.

While he's got the skill to slip past anyone, he's not a run at defenders midfielder, so he doesn't need pace. He's more like Teddy Sheringham in that respect, and I see him playing top level footy until his late 30s.

He's more likely to skip past one and then play a killer pass. He can score rockets into the postage stamp or cheeky flicks and back heels past the 'keeper.

Whatever team gets him will get a match winner.

Ronaldhino is the other one that someone is going to get for a bargain. One season of injuries doesn't make one of the best players in the world a has been. He's lost his motivation, and all it'll take for him to get to his best is the right coach.

deco has been one of the best midfielders in the world with xavi I think.

However, not sure he will like the prem and will not like the fouls

Hammer fan in peace...

Have you actually bought deco yet. Or is it just talking going on at the moment.

the only thing i can think of is to get rid of SWP He has got to be one of the most over rated players in football history. every time his foot touches the ball it goes no where near the goal. you would be better to cut your losses and sell him to plymouth or exeter.

The only thing drogba was good for was checking the grass and making sure is was all manicured perfectly, i mean have you ever seen some one fall over so much. He's either on his back or catching the ball with his hands and paying off the reffs! A complete disgrace to football, however the hopefull move of deco to chelsea is a great move on there part just as long as the chemistry works.
