Summer Speculation 2012

0 posts in this topic

We should be looking towards summer. This season is realistically all but over, the only competition we have a shot at is Fa Cup. Even AVB is more and more trying to justify his stay by talking about ''next year's project'' more than often. Maybe that's the reason for reported player's revolt against the manager, who knows....but anyway this is a discussion for another topic, here I want to ask fans, not so much about who they want ''in'' in the summer, but who should go ''out''.

My ''necessary picks'': Bosingwa, Malouda, Kalou, Meireless, Drogba.

other who I wouldn't mind so much if they stayed but if the club got a sensible offer and found a good replacement: Torres, Lampard, Cole, Essien(he isn't getting any younger, the injuries must have taken their toll, club must have learned by now that Chelsea FC is not a charity organization), Cech(obviously there is Courtois, but I think he will spent another year on loan, and then be our long-term no.1. In this case, I must compliment our transfer policy, I think this was a tremendous deal!).

I am definitely for a big revamp in the summer, 2-3 players out just won't do. We missed our chance to squeeze out the old-guard gradually during the previous windows when we should have done so. So a bare minimum of 5 players out(let's don't forget also Hilario and Ferreira who are in last year of their contracts, so besides those two, another 5).

What do you think?

I think for a start Cech should be removed from the "could possibly be sold if we get a nice offer" list forthwith.

Hahaha good thread !

But too early to speak about summer 2012...

We don't even know if we'll qualify for next year Champion's league. The players we'll looking for depend on our potential CL qualification.

You can't tempt players like Hazard, Lucas, Gotze, Hulk with Europa League...

So close this thread and open it up after the last Premier League match

Edit :

But the players out for me are : Bosingwa, Cole, Lampard, Drogba, Kalou, Malouda, Torres, Obi Mikel, Ferreira

After this clear out, we will need 7-8 young and hungry players...

So, Lampard, Cech, Cole, Torres, Drogba, Malouda and Essien. Why not throw in Terry? And Mata, while we're at it.

I mean, if you want to sell ALL of our star players. Let's go all out.

And preferably replace them with all the expensive, unproven players, like the ones you listed. Lovely.

I bet you always win the championship on footy manager. Because you're friggin' genius.

We can't get quality players in if we don't qualify fr the Champions League people, no way.

How did Liverpool manage to get Suarez, how did Spurs manage to get Modric... Torres signed for us, right, so did Luiz, known talents with many admirers.

Was our UCL qualification definite at that point?

I'm not talking about all squad, just about players who are past it and on the wrong side of the 30's...

We can't keep them on silly wages looking how they are underperforming...

They were good players, many of them can be useful in the future, but will not be automatic starters...

We need to buy players who are young, hungry and pushing for a first team spot, CFC is not a nursing home...

Modric was unproven player at the time Spuds signed him, just a good Dynamo Zagreb player

Suarez was a good bet and like us for Torres, Liverpool had a clear run on him as nobody was interested in him for winter market.

The problem is all players we are interested in are also tracked by other clubs too...

The UCL qualification definite that a player we would like to sign will choose another club playing CL other us...

Or we can pay silly wages (like City at the begining) to make those wanted players forget that we are not in the CL...

malouda, Kalou, bosingwa. the first 2 barely get games and the third just annoys me because he plays stupid.

the other contenders are mikel, meireles and Drogba, I would like all to stay but mikel is struggling for games, meireles I think doesnt know what role he has each game since he is played all over the place(we dont need a jack of all trades midfielder, either play him defensive or in attack he is no good as an actual CM), Drogba I think has contract running out so its partly up to him.

in terms of who we get in, bring mata centrally for games means left wing is open. get a left winger, good luck, barely any good ones out there. RB is again important, I would be tempted to place Essien as the back up to iva personally and get another midfielder with passing game. next either trust bertrand properly or sell him and buy a left back. finally give sturridge games as CF and get a right winger.

honestly unless you spend big or aim for random unknown stuff chances of getting decent players is slim

Agree! I think we should send all the key players from Mourinho. They still want to play with him and it is the biggest obstacle against us for a long time.

We can replace Cech. We have 2 talented young keepers.

Lampard can be replace with Modric, Essien can be replaced with Banega, Maluda can be replaced with Kevin, Drogba will be replaced with Lukaku. Terry cannot be replaced easily but we can find some players.

I also do not want to see Torres with us next year. We can use him to swap someone.

We really do not need superstars. We need quality hardworker players

vademoo, the one's post you quoted is sarcastic. He actually disagrees with you. Those ''stars'' you mentioned Chelsea'Til_IDie, they're just names, nothing else. Exactly this kind of thinking brought Chelsea in the trouble we are now. ''OOh, we have stars, we should be ok''. Everyone is forgeting stars don't last forever.

Cech has been at fault for many this year's goals. Maybe he will be a no.1 for next season, but then you can count on that Courtois will take his place. You think Courtois was messing around when he said that Chelsea is worried about Cech. Someone inside the club must have told him that, don't you think....
