  1. quote:Originally posted by Rob HobsonI was always gutted that Desailly never won the CL with us: he would have joined Seedorf as the only men to have won it with 3 different clubs. id="quote"> id="quote">I was too. And the fact that he never won the league either. Who knows - maybe one day he can come back as coach or manager and win both for us!!
  2. Well done JT. Juventus (and their fans) will be gutted. All bar JT being their chosen back five last season! Ha ha!!

He said in an interview that he thinks Terry is the best captain a team could have, but that it is not his place to put pressure on the England coach in any way, so he refused to say more on the topic. id="quote"> id="quote">Ditto Harv's comments. It is neither Benitez's nor Mourinho's place to be making suggestions that their respective club captains should be England captain.

  5. I remember some time ago that Tony Adams said that there wasnt a better man to replace Beckham than JT, as he has all of the attributes required of an England captain. Whilst Gerrard is a good captain I think JT's stature undoubtedly makes him a better option than Gerrard. The fact that it was a former Arsenal and England captain that said that IMO stands JT in the best stead. JT for captain and England for Euro 2008 and World Cup 2010!!
  6. quote:Originally posted by basoleI met someone when I was in Holland in June this year, who happens to be a Feynoord fan and he told me that, Kalou is going to be the best signing for Chelsea. I dont know why he said this but in his opinion, Kalou is going to be a hit and a bargain given what we paid for him. He said that he could be like Henry.(Ofcourse I chose to believe him, because Cryuff & an Basten couldnt have been wrong about him getting Dutch citizenship). Now I dont know much about Kalou apart from the games I have seen him play and he didn't look anywhere near Henry. I however hope he gets a chance so that I can see why some people think he is going to be another world beater. id="quote"> id="quote">Lets hope that they are right. Who was Henry when he was 20? No one. Give him a chance! Henry wasnt exactly setting the world on fire for Juve before Wenger rescued him, and he took ages to settle in London (he was what - 23/24 when he finally started to become the player is today). In three or four years who knows how good Kalou could be! Back to the point of the thread - I cannot wait to see Shev playing, and I am glad that Drogba wont be able to infuriate me week in week out with some of his indifferent performances. I think Drogba will be much much better this season with the competition that there now is up front. Lets sit back and watch them bang them in for fun!!
  7. Of course it has to be Steven Gerrard. He plays for Liverpool. Well done JT. Whilst I think he is the best CB in the world, I dont think he necessarily did himself justice this world cup. A couple of untypical mistakes spring to mind. Still by far the best that England had to offer, and long may it continue. JT for England!!

  8. quote:Originally posted by rangersfc_chelseafcI think Ashley Cole is a great player going FORWARD,sometimes wary of his defensive skills,he linked up well with Joe during world cup at times and that could be an interesting factor.There is not many better than him thats for sure,one of the best in his position simply because the rest are pretty poor,Bobby Carlos over the hill also may I add. I agree with Robben from top thread Grosso looked superb. id="quote"> id="quote">That may be the case but I think - in part - that is the way in which Wenger has nurtured him. Under the guidance of JM, I reckon his defensive game would come on leaps and bounds and we would see him become the best left back in the world.
  9. quote:Originally posted by Red4lifequote:Originally posted by Booglequote:Originally posted by Red4lifeThought A.Cole was s**t the first two games but then I've never really rated him as much as others to be honest Good going forward but suspect defensively id="quote"> id="quote"> So similar to Riise? id="quote"> id="quote"> Until this season yes. I'm not saying Cole's crap defensively but the times I've seen him caught out of position because he's gone forward This last season Riise have improved more than I thought he ever could, and has benefitted from being told he's first choice left back and apart from once or twice, hasn't been asked to play left midfield Hope he continues to improve this coming season with Aurelio arriving should provide more competition for him id="quote"> id="quote">I know what you mean, but I can imagine Mourinho instilling a stronger sense of defensive discipline than Wenger who is more inclined to encourage players to attack! I think we would see Cole develop as a player were he to move to Chelsea (and indeed if you had the money Liverpool).
  10. quote:Originally posted by True-BlueHowdy. I think Ashley Cole would be a great addition to the team, maybe if we play three at the back - Terry, Gallas, Carvalho - and have two wing backs - Cole and ??????, 3 in midfield - Lamps, Ballack, Maka and two up front Sheva/Kalou/Drogs. id="quote"> id="quote">No Joe Cole or Robben? Both are on scinillating form at the moment. If we have wing backs, surely that negates the need for two strikers? I would be pretty scared (as an opponent) if I was facing a midfield of Maka with Lamps and Ballack running the centre of the park and Cole and Robben running up and down the flanks overlapping with their respective full-backs and with Sheva up front. pretty scary prospect.

  12. quote:Originally posted by Hilario Coimbraquote:Originally posted by Droy was my heroCan't ever see Jose buying a defender shorter than 5'10". id="quote"> id="quote"> You must be blind. Asier Del Horno is 5'8". http://www.4thegame.com/club/chelsea-fc/pl...rdel_horno.html As for left-back choices, my preferences would be: 1) Zambrotta 2) Ashley Cole 3) Roberto Carlos 4) Bridge ..... ..... ..... 1948) Chris Sutton ..... ..... ..... 29472) Asier Del Horno id="quote"> id="quote">..... ..... ..... 1890763) Winston Bogarde?? Seeing how the Coles played together last night it would be amazing for both Chelsea and England. Would love to AC here...!! As Arsenal have now had their only stab at winning the Champions League, is there any reason for him to stay on and play at Cashburden Grove?!
  13. Carpe Diem. Thats what we as Chelsea fans have done. Roman arrived and we embraced him as one of our own. If it happens to Liverpool or any other club for that matter, I would urge you to do the same. Its not like the fans of Chelsea football club had any choice as to whether Roman bought the club or not, and so I am pretty happy sitting back and watch the big names roll in and the trophy room fill up.
  14. If Essien can play as well as he did against Betis at SB week in week out, I will be a very happy man - sheer class in that match and unlucky not to score.
  15. quote:Originally posted by Richard RedmondWell, it would be very strange if the best paid player come next September was Ballack, not JT or Lampard. It's unusual for a defender to get top wages, but then JT is no ordinary defender - he's up there with Bobby Moore. However, I earn somewhat less than £30,000 a year in my job. Either I'm crap, footballer wages are utterly and completely obscene or both! id="quote"> id="quote">Its because football wages are so obscene. If fans are willing to pay the prices to see their team play and so long as the TV companies are prepared to pay silly money for TV rights, then clubs can continue to play their players whatever they want. As long as the books balance (which they dont at the momenet at Chelsea), then this trend is set to continue. In fairness to the footballers themselves, they are paid no more than film stars, pop stars, bankers etc. They are very lucky people. JT and Frank deserve to be earning as much - if not more than - Ballack at any rate. We never want to lose either player.
