  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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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 area
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Drogba should form a super group with Zola, Lampard and Di Matteo. Didier has all the charisma of a proper front man. Frank should be on drums, quietly organising from just behind. Franco the magician on lead guitar. Robbie the quiet one on bass laying down some funky moves.
  10. Africa is a continent full of awful teams. They have never and will never challenge the European or South American greats, including England. When you're trying to laud Mikel as an outstanding player, it surely highlights how terrible the standard is.
  11. So a £49 million fine is relatively small, according to you. I'm glad you're not the one providing 'business advice'. The squad is good enough to qualify and do well without Willian. We only won a shed load of trophies without him. I know you can't drag your Neanderthal knuckles off the floor to watch the team, but you'd think that some of the events of the last decade might have made its way into your memory. I said in my post that I knew the 2014 article was a while ago, but you've overlooked that haven't you. Try reading a simple sentence if you want to remain cognisant, 'kiddo'. (Call
  12. It forces the club into contingency planning. Knowing that the CL income is there allows you to place a buffer on your spending and have some in reserve. Missing it won't destroy the club overnight, but it restricts squad improvements, new contract deals etc It can have long lasting repercussions that don't impact straightaway. Generating income through a player sale builds a layer of safety.
  13. Manchester United also spent £140 million that season even though they missed out. Why? Because they can afford to. Chelsea can't.
  14. I'd like to see Mikel take a position further up the field. I'd see how he fares sitting just behind the striker. He's a good player to slide a ball through or hold it up and turn it around for the wingers or the forward. He was always an AM.
