    Falcao, Sterling and Oxlade would be an amazing summer of transfers for us. I don't think the latter two will happen but, here's hoping!

    He squandered a hat full, has worse ball control than demba ba but, I guess he is good on Fifa. Glad we got Remy after seeing this.

    I agree that Dave hasn't put a foot wrong but we all know that more can be offered at left back - just as Ivan is at the moment on the right.
  4. Everton 3 Chelsea 6

    almost agree - would have to put Costa in there too.
  5. Everton 3 Chelsea 6

    Everton played a dirty game there thought we played great to overcome them.. The midfield 3 of matic, Ramires and fabregas complemented each other brilliantly. Costa was great and done well not to retaliate too much.. The defending was good apart from 3 moments of switching off!!! Think it was just one of those games though. Good spirit, good performance great result.

    You can't deny lebeouf and luiz were very similar scenarios. Both were idolised to start with and then moaned at towards the end because their play was deemed to extravagant.. For the book I rated them both throughout - I still prefer luiz over Silva.. Point is we have a player that could still offer something. Spain national side believes so and so do I. Sorry I don't agree with you all on this. If Torres plays for us again he has my support.

    Not at first he wasn't but, towards the end our support definitely turned on him! He was definitely a Luiz type of player! Actually almost the exact same scenario - a number of fans(probably the majority) believing the media hype over what the player actually done on the pitch. I'm glad you carried on supporting him to the end too.

    I just find myself supporting the unlikeable players that play for us.. Don't know what it is really, was the same with Kalou, Malouda, LeBeouf, Mikel etc I probably need to stop wearing the blue tinted specs and realise that anything wearing a blue shirt isn't always great! You know that song "john Obi Mikel he'll score when he wants" - yep I was singing that for years in the shed lower each time he missed before everyone started singing it when he did actually score.

    No it's not - if the club and the fans back Torres he would still do a job for us (I know it won't happen but I do believe that). We are playing with a midfield that would suit him a lot more now. Torres is better than Ba by a country mile but, some would prefer to have him here... Spain's attacking options are Costa and Torres - I'd settle for our attacking options being Costa, Torres and Drogba. The grass isn't always greener - I think Torres has demonstrated that to a lot of you! Torres isn't a terrible player - in patches he really started to look like he was going to hit top form but then would get an injury. He has been dropping too deep - we can all see that but with a run of games I think he could get the confidence back and go on a good run of form. Ultimately, Torres was wrong signing here because he was never going to be as good as he was in his prime, you could see that after the injury he hadn't performed to the same level for Liverpool, he was competing against Drogba, plastic chelsea fans took to him immediately, he was sold for a record 50million and it was from Liverpool to us! He didn't handle the pressure well but, I still think he has the potential to give us a few good seasons.

    We have a perfectly good enough striker to start in Torres.
  11. Transfer Talk Topic

    When Torres came in and everyone wanted him playing instead of Drogba I carried on supporting Drogba as the number 1. When Torres played I supported him and I'll carry on supporting him. Support the badge not a player and especially not a player in a different shirt

    People seem to have formed an even stronger opinion about Torres over the summer where in the world cup he looked good when he came on and also in pre-season. Seems to me that people just watched his smash over the bar in pre-season and base all their opinions on that. Torres is an emotional confidence driven player - fickle - if he had the support (fans) behind him I'm sure he'd be banging them in. Costa will do well because he is horrible just like Drogba - horrible is a compliment by the way when it comes to being a striker - just as selfish is for a striker. They don't need the crowd because it's all about them and when it goes wrong it's never their fault. When Torres played alongside costa they linked up really well and I think he could be the perfect joint-2nd option but only if we as Chelsea fans support him.

    Agreed! He looked brilliant pre season apart from that one blip.
  14. Transfer Talk Topic

    I agree. He has been up and down in pre-season.. In some games he looked like the only goal threat. People have to realize that players that are happy to play mainly from the bench are important to the squad just as Kalou used to be..
  15. Werder Bremen 3 Chelsea 0

    I thought there were some positives:1. Luis looked solid again 2. As did Costa 3. Courtois looked like he wanted to be there. 4. We dominated possession 5. Zouma seems to be improving and has now put on two good performances 6. I forgot Drogba ever left There were some negatives: 1. The build up play was slow (but it was a friendly) and we seemed to lack attacking ideas 2. Cesc seems to be off match sharpness 3. Players look like they're trying to understand the new reigeme but that's what pre season is for.. 4. Costa hit out again
