  1. No player currently plying his trade should have a statue. Not until 2020 should anything happen, which as a coincidence, is about the right time the stadium will open.
  2. I think many of the players who participated in the final would feel aggrieved for not being included. Separate statues of Drogba, Cech, Lampard and Terry would all be welcomed and deserved. The stadium almost feels like a hall of warriors approach. Having those individuals line each side as you walk into the arena would be great.
  3. Without starting another who is and who isn't a legend debate, I think Lampard is far more deserving of a statue than Terry.

  5. Sturridge is playing really well for Liverpool when not injured, but he isn't suited to the current style Chelsea are playing. Carroll is. He'd be a nightmare to deal with up front when we're trying to hold the ball up. Definitely a good impact sub and someone to bring on to control the game if we're winning. Sturridge would fit well into our counter attacking threat but he strikes me as being lazy off the ball.
  6. Terry, Cech, Drogba and Lampard were/are all legends. Cech, Drogba and Lampard were applauded playing against us because of the respect they garnished. Terry should also be afforded the same respect should it ever happen. The only other one within the last 25 years to make it to legendary status is Zola. Di Matteo will obviously always be special but is just outside the margin for me.
  7. On the fence about this decision. He's been off the boil this season along with every other player but it is important to keep an English contingent within the squad, especially one who has won so much and gained vital experience. I wish he was future captain instead of Ivanovic. What we need is to increase the amount of English players within the side. A solid £20million bid for Andy Carroll should be just enough to prise him away from West Ham.
  8. The new builds like Red Bull Stadium and MetLife Stadium are soulless bowls. Open airs like the many college stadiums are huge but largely uninspiring, with as many Americans crammed in as possible. The more interesting ones are the baseball stadiums because of their mish mash appearance reminiscent of cricket stadia in this country, but they're still packed full of advertising and LED's and neons and awful beer. Chelsea have made such a massive effort to incorporate the new stadium within the surroundings, lessen impact on residents, improve public access and stay true to the areas history. The result has been a stadium totally unique and beautiful, providing a link to the past as well as a nod to the future. What has America done?
  9. The USA has zero culture. Everything that happens there is borne off the innovation from the rest of the world. Their stadiums are uninspiring and boring.
  10. Why? It'll be the most innovative and beautiful stadium ever conceived in this country. It's beautiful. A true Colosseum of football. Chelsea will fill 60,000 easily.
  11. If Reus is going to leave Dortmund then surely Liverpool will go all out for him. Then again, he's coming off the back off a bad injury and is only showing glimpses of his previous form, so I fully expect us to put in a huge bid in January. I would love us to focus on one marquee signing and then try and get some squad players in. We can't afford to spend much at all without selling some of our assets like Willian though.
  12. Bendtner is the back up incase Carroll doesn't come in. If we fail to get both then we should go all out to bring in Peter Crouch.
  13. Isco, Pogba, Griezzman, Stones, Mané and Carroll. Dream window.
  14. I think it's a great idea. A Brazilian fire sale including Ramires, Willian and Oscar could potentially bring in just under £100 million for the club. Throw in Piazon as a free. They won't have a choice.
