Can't say I'm overjoyed at this news.

Can't say I'm overjoyed at this news.

I have my concerns- his recent injuries, relatively poor form over the last six months, the lack of demonstrable goal scoring pedigree over his career as a whole, the ref-baiting behaviour ... But really I think (poor me!) that expensive star strikers have just been ruined for me, no matter who they are. Don't think the signing of one will ever elicit any feeling other than dread ever again.

I sincerely hope Costa has me laughing at myself in six months.

Big weight on his shoulders.

True. He has to carry Torres on them.

Suffice to say, my expectations are not massive.

I'm really pleased. I think even on a bad day he'll give CBs a tough 90 minutes and allow our best players like Oscar and Hazard more room to play.

Plenty of concerns with this signing. I'll reserve judgement until I've seen him over a season in blue. Hopefully he proves me wrong. Welcome to Chelsea Diego Costa!
