  1. Salomon Kalou

    He will take time to adjust of course, but he is twenty years of age!! I honestly believe he will become a phenomenal player during his time here. As Fentini says "a gem".
  2. Didier Drogba

    Good stuff. I for one believe the big man is going to have a cracking season. Go on Drogs, stay on your feet and do us proud!
  3. Salomon Kalou

    quote:Originally posted by exiledblueGood luck Kalou, I hope come the end of the season a large slice of humble pie comes my way. id="quote"> id="quote">This is good to see, someone willing to have an open mind about a Chelsea player rather than slate him. Let's not forget also, that exiledblue has seen more of Kalou than any of us. Some of us may want to bear this is mind when it comes to Drogba for the start of the new season.
  4. Ashley Cole

    quote:Originally posted by BluEbOy90I beleive (as we all know), we have a slight problem with the left back position at this moment in time. IMO, Ashley would be a fantastic addition to the side, and may dramatically improve the strength of our defense. Providing Willy see's sense and apologizes for his childish actions and hopefully stays, We will have the strongest defense in the country, and possibly in Europe aswell. I rate him and always have rated him highly for his defensive and attacking capabiltites. Shevchenko was a brilliant signing, Ballack was a brilliant capture, and so was the other two younger players. But Cole would be the icing on the cake for me. He will fill in a gap which has been bugging me for a while now. Gallas is a good player, but he's not naturally left sided and finds it hard to play there sometimes. With two naturally left sided (Top Quality) defenders, We have a much stronger side. Also the two Coles will link up well together on the left side if Joe plays there. I can't really explain in much more detail why I think he will be the most important of the lot, but it's just a feeling I have. Maybe it's because I will get to see Cheryl more often. id="quote"> id="quote">I knew it was all because of Cheryl! I see your point, one of his best qualities is the way he links up with other players, especially down the left-side. I just don't see that quality being worth £20m. Whereas, some of Shevchenko's qualities are far more important to the team overall and (in football terms) worth what we paid for him. I believe it is he who will be the most important signing, possibly in our history.
  5. Ashley Cole

    quote:Originally posted by BluEbOy90How much for Cheryl instead? id="quote"> id="quote">I reckon 3 pints and a pie 'n' beans and Cheryl would be mine. Well, maybe now she's best mates with Posh, a wine spritzer and three bits of sweetcorn. On a serious note though BlueBoy90, I noticed in a previous post you said you believed Cole could be our most important signing this summer. I disagree with this but I want to know why you think so? Cheers.
  6. Salomon Kalou

    Agree with aprevost and dooder, he reminds me very much of Eto'o. I don't think we need worry about his strength, he seems like a strong enough kid to me.
  7. Ashley Cole

    I wish this would hurry up and get over and done with. These drawn out sagas are really starting to grate, not just our ones but nowadays nearly every transfer is speculated upon for weeks and then drawn out even further before the inevitable happens. I say I wish it would be over and done with but really I don't want Ashley Cole here. Who is to say he won't turn his back on us one day like he's done to the Arse (the team he supported growing up)? I would much rather see Bridge at left-back because I still love him for THAT goal and he is a very, very good player. Maybe not as good as Cole, but we don't have to have the best player in the world, ie best right-back at right-back, in every single position!! My other concern is that we are giving one of our (most detested) rivals £20m - possibly as much as £30m for a player we don't need! They are obviously a bit stuck for cash (either that or no-one wants to join them) and we want to give them £20m to help boost their title bid. Madness. People say it would be sweet if Cole scores against them to win the game and things like that but aren't we forgetting that our current left-back did that already? Quite simply, we don't need Ashley Cole and the only serious benefit I can see from him signing would be seeing Cheryl Tweedy at the Bridge every week.
  8. Salomon Kalou

    Is anyone else really, really excited about this kid? Yes, most of us have not seen a lot of him and exiledblue (who has more reason to comment than any of us having seen him regularly) is sceptical, but I have a feeling he is going to set our Blue worlds alight. Perhaps not next season, he won't play in as many games as Shevchenko/Drogba (I think he will play more than some anticipate though) but there appears to be a hunger in him that makes me believe he will be a big success here. I think his pace will frighten the life out of many defenders at home and abroad and may well be Mourinho's gem. People are banging on about Liverpool's little'n'large partnership but if Kalou is played alongside Drogs and/or Sheva we may have our own one. Thoughts?
  9. John Terry

    McLaren is too weak to make this kind of judgement, he's just a yes man, an Eriksonn prototype. He'll have a look at a few opinion polls and as very few non-CFC fans will vote Terry For Captain, Gerrard will be the new England captain. Which yes, is a joke.
  10. John Terry

    Perhaps this is a case of 'blue-tinted glasses' but in a conversation with a friend the other day I came to the conclusion that our John Terry is the world's complete player. Granted, he may not have the skills of Ronaldinho, the flair of Henry or even the football brain of Lamps but think about it. Here is a captain who's exploits border on heroic every week, a centre-back with the ability to make last ditch tackles and blocks, play football from the back, play 60-yard passes, beat players, chips in with a fair few goals, some spectacular, some vital, seems invincible, I could go on and on. It just appears that with all FIFA's and the media gushing over Ronaldinho's (albeit sublime) ability they forget about a player who has and gives everything. Sometimes it's nice just to appreciate the players we have here already without worrying about Cannavaro, Zambrotta, Torres etc especially if our players include JOHN Terry.
  11. Salomon Kalou

    I was reading the magazine earlier and was very impressed with his attitude. I don't think he seemed arrogant, he seemed very honest and genuinely pleased to be here to win things and play football for Chelsea. Good on him I say. I hope he does get a chance next season and I think he'll do well here.
  12. New Kits

    I wish they would just show us the f**king strip. I mean, come on. Seriously, show us the strip. 90% of us will buy it even if it's another orange and granite one so just show us it.
  13. John Terry

    Apologies if someone else is posting a similiar thread, I searched and found nothing. Also apologies if this should be in the World Cup Forum but it does involve two CFC players. Big scare for Terry after he suffers injury
  14. Didier Drogba

    Whatever anyone says and I'll admit I've had a go at him in the past, but he is pure class. He has to stay at the Bridge and I reckon he will. Very good luck to the Big Man for the World Cup, I've got money on the Elephants to go through in that group so do your best for me Didi. ;)
  15. Salomon Kalou

    I reckon he might go back on loan to Feyenoord for the work permit and I can't see him playing much next season anyway. Agree that, sadly, it looks like the end for Eidur. Kalou could be a great signing as he will be here for the long-term and can play out on the wing and as a striker. From what I've seen of him he is very quick and a decent finisher similiar to as a couple have already said, Samuel Eto'o. He may well turn out to be the long-term replacement for Shevchenko should we sign him which looks likely :) Good luck Salomon Kalou, hope you do very well at the Bridge.
  16. Gianfranco Zola

    You could talk all day about the Little Magician, Marazola as the Napoli fans called him, God as we did. Still miss him. The free-kick against Barca or that hat-trick against Derby. F**king genius.
  17. Michael Essien

    The Ess had a brilliant start to the season but after the Hamann incedent and his injury he wasn't the same until the last few games. He looked scared to go into tackles in fear of cards and disgraceful media campaigns against him. He is a great player, dunno about £24m but thats the prices we have to pay, great player and I believe he, along with Drogs and Arjen Robben will show people what they can really do. We also need a decent Essien chant.
  18. John Terry

    What more can be said about this man? Too good for words! There were times this season, especially towards the end where JT was pulling the boys over the finish line. Magnificent player, great guy, an absolute legend. Seeing him lift the Premiership trophy again this season...amazing. Cheers JT!!!!
  19. John Terry

    Can't really argue with Henry I suppose, there should be some kind of Phenomenal Consistency Award for JT though.
  20. John Terry

    Brilliant. He will go down as our best ever player.
  21. John Terry

    He will go down in CFC history as our best ever player. What he does for this team is unbelieveable. He deserves every award going, well done John.
  22. Michael Essien

    He is going to be huge. In the first half of the season he was INCREDIBLE.
  23. New Kits

    I really hope that is a fake that truly is horrible. I don't mind so much being absolutely ripped off for a nice top but that?! Maybe it'll look better with the Champions 05/06 badges on it.
  24. Michael Essien

    I totally agree with you. Also the nature of Essien's game (combative, tenacious midfielder who runs ALL day long) he is very susceptible to another injury. You're spot on keep him with Chels until he's recovered he is a very important part of our team. He also has the ability to knock people's teeth out by touching their chest - a true magician. ; - )
