Who we should buy/sell this summer

Chelsea

comment on the article

Firstly, I'm delighted by the appointment of Luiz Felipe Scolari. His record speaks for itself and I'm excited to see how well he does for us. However, I think signing Deco was a big mistake. He's been a good player, but I'm worried he'll be another Drogba. Though considering Scolari knows Deco, I suppose it may not be too bad a signing. If available, we should've gone for Kaka, but if not, then Van Der Vaart or Diego would've been better signings. Also in a way, I'm disappointed by the signing of Bosingwa, seeing that we could've gone for Daniel Alves instead. We could've afforded him, but now he's at Barca. He wasn't Big Phil's signing, so no blame for him there.

Anyway, I think we should keep the likes of Carvalho, Lampard, Joe Cole, Essien and Drogba, and i don't know whats going on with Branislav Ivanovic and why hasn't played a game for us, but keep to see what he's like, and get rid of Ferreira, Belletti, Ben Haim, Sidwell, Makelele (getting too old now), Wright-Phillips, Malouda, Anelka (misses too many chances and could end up being another kezman), Pizarro and Shevchenko. Then I think we should buy Barzagli, Micah Richards (if Ivanovic goes. if not Richards, then keep Belletti), Cambiasso or Xabi Alonso or Nigel De Jong, Gareth Barry (if Lampard goes), David Silva, Ronaldinho (link up well with Deco), Quaresma, Robinho, Eto'o, David Villa (if not, then keep Anelka) and Berbatov (if Drogba goes).

That's who I think we should buy/sell this summer. I think these transfers will help us become the best team in the world

I honeslty cannot see how any one can support this team, All thy do is buy new players year in year out, There are no academy and English national players there, All these players have been bought, the stadium is less than impressive and a new manager every season what is going on! Its all just money money money no entertainment.

I think Malouda & SWP should move on, which will mean we'll need a new winger. Someone like Quaresma would be awesome, but I do get the feeling that Chelsea would be turning into the portugese national team, so maybe someone like David Bentley.




Erm, David Bentley is English?

Tannakaobi, i accept what you are saying, and i accept Roman has put all his money where his mouth is and invested large sums ..... all very well and good but what i am saying is his meddling is increasing e.g Jose going! And he wants Sheva in the starting line up (i mean SHEVA???!!)

I just fear for the future sometimes, will he soon be picking the team? If he doesn't/hasn't already!!

Roman Deserves trophies, simple as, he puts money in to Football as a hole not to mention English clubs, we have paid some very over priced ammounts for players just because who RA is, all of that money helping other clubs not so fortunate as ourselfs build better facilities and but better players to help build there own clubs!

------------------------

Typical Chelsea fan! You deserve trophies because youve spent money!

No one deserves trophies because of the money they spend, they deserve it becaue of the football they play!
-------------------------

You have taken what I said compleatly out of context.

I'm not suggesting that he deserves success BECAUSE he puts money in,
the simple fact is he has provided Chelsea with a great team, a successfull team, and he deserves the success he gets, Chelsea were good before he came, due to Good managers attrackting good players such as Vially, Zola ect.. something that is very hard to do now because of the Lure od CL football. (Barry/Liverpool)
RA has taken a good team on the verge of finachial breakdown and made them exceptional, and NO ONE!!! has lost out, other teams have made a lot of money from us, and the title is a one horse race no longer, in fact the quality of the prem, is a lot better now and it's starting to attract some of the BEST players in the world, such as Ronaldiniho, who would not have come 5 years ago!

One of the first things RA did was biuld a youth accadamy, no the fruit hasn't come yet but it's only been five years and it won't be long now.

we buy to many players do we? er.. unlike Man United, Newcastle, Man City.... er!!!

as for Managers in and out! what compered to Newcastle or Leicester City????
Jose was a breakdown in a relationship, Grant was just pathetic! He did well but had no style, was never going to be a replacement for Jose! It is a shame the way RA treated him, but it was Grants fault that Jose and RA fell out in the first place!

As for a stadium! Well what are we suppost to do? Build a new one? In London? get real RA may be made of money but he isn't stupid! Chelsea simply do not have the fan base to fill a bigger one therefore no point! And if you look at Arsenal, the very reason they can't afford to pay there players the wages that other teams can is because of that Stadium!

Do you come from the stone age?

"All thy do is buy new players year in year out"

Which club doesn't do this? Your club does it quite a lot.

"There are no academy and English national players there"

Obviousy we're not an academy we're a football club you plum. No English internationals? So Terry, Lampard, A.Cole, Bridge, J.Cole and SWP don't count? Were you born on the moon?

"All these players have been bought"

Terry is home grown, TBH, Sidwell and Pizarro were all free agents. Try doing some background checks you lazy person.

"the stadium is less than impressive"

What's wrong with it? It's probably your eye sight.

"a new manager every season what is going on"

Wrong. Try keeping up with the news instead of sitting your lardiness on the seat typing up rubbish all day long.

Lukas Podolski and Bastian Schweinsteiger should be targets,they're relitively young and are only gonna get even better than they are now.

if lampard goes you'd have schweinsteiger who plays well with ballack for germany. and podolski is a proven goalscorer what more do you need

Theoretically Abramovich can spend one billion and buy Kaka, Van der Saar, Ronaldo, Villa, Torres, Ronaldiniyo, Messi, Sneider, Arshavin and everybody else. It will be a national team of the world, or whatever name you can find for it. UN team? I know who will be able to beat it: a team from another galaxy whose players have five legs and four eyes each, and whose coach has two brains. After the game, Chelsey will buy them, too. All of them, including two-brained coach. Modern transfer policies are absurd.
