    Torres, Shevchenko, Falcao....names to whet the appetite with a goal record to match. Not being facetious but I do believe a Higuain signing would mimic their respective tenures more than a Costa or Drogba. But then again it's all about opinions. FWIW I'd still take my chances with Belotti should Sarri (if he ever gets here) dip into the Italian market.

    Higuain isn't the answer to our Morata woes... Neither cut the mustard. Giroud more effective than either.

    Very touching tribute to a club legend. Proud.

    Pretty sure, operating under this structure, we would have found a way to f*** this scenario up as well. By the same token, had Conte been operating with the same freedom that Pep has enjoyed at City, we might be realistically defending our title. The structure must change. Till then, it doesn't matter who we bring in to manage, we're building castles on quicksand

    Legend. Gentleman. Chelsea. One of his favorite phrases which he bellowed out at The Bridge to his defenders was 'stay on your feet!!!' Ray, you'll be getting a well deserved standing ovation, as your fans in the ground will be on their feet in appreciation. It resonates like the loss of a close friend. Such an beloved figure. Thank you Butch. You are Chelsea

    RIP Butch. Absolutely brokenhearted.

    Exactly. Any team in world football would be weakened with losing a player like Diego Costa and to a lesser extent, Matic. Bakayako and Drinkwater aren't of the same Calibre and expecting a superhuman first season from Morata placed tremendous weight upon young and adjusting shoulders. I am however extremely heartened by the Giroud signing, and together with Morata I see us growing in menace and guile upfront again. A force to be reckoned with? It's a good start. We simply must keep Eden though - at his best he's genuine world class and I look forward to his role in developing our front two with relish.

    A desperately needed physical presence upfront. Let's hope he produces the goods and welcome him with open arms.

    Delighted with the purchase of Giroud.

    ...or would Troy McClure be a more suitable fit 😜

    Troy Deeney anyone?

    If he scores/contributes to a couple of vital goals, no-one will care about his age. As I said, not the answer but a short term contract has merit. We need to get over this Crouchiphobia. Because at the moment are playing like robots. May as well have the originator in the mix. But again it's disgraceful and embarrassing once again we're left scrambling for players while our rivals further strengthen.

    Crouch as an option, not as a solution. Think he'd flourish with Azpi's assists but Dzeko and/or Giroud make more sense as backup/competition for a shaky Morata, post Batshuayi. Still Crouch as third choice has merit. But in itself does it answer our striker problem? No
