Going into the 07/08 season, who has the better attack now. Barca or Chelsea?

(or to look at it another way, would you rather we had their strikers than our own?)

Drogba is the only reason such a poll like this exists... Otherwise comparing the two would be laughable icon_rolleyes.gif

Messi, Ronaldinho, Eto'o, Henry & Eidur... W.o.w.

Hopefully Sheva will shine for us next season, and if Robben can reproduce the form he did in his first season then maybe the gap can be closed 128.gif also signing Messi would help 247.gif and Eidur.

It cant really be touched, as gem pointed out, based on the season gone drogba is the only one that makes it even worth thinking about...

But (also pointed out by gem) just for one moment imagine sheva recaptures the form that made him the most danegrouse stirker in europe.. robben doesnt get injured for a whole season and then add a fully fit joe cole in to the mix... ok we'r still lagging behind them but not by that much...

The thing is all that aside i think they key to our season next year will be having Essien in the middle!! not shifting him all over the place... the guy is a monster of a player and if we do go up against barca next season at some point i think it will be him that will be the difference as opposed to all the star attractions on show

Is this a real Poll or simply Brian making a point? A valid one, I might add.

If a poll exists in cyberspace, and nobody sees or hears it, does it still make a sound... icon_wink.gif

I totally agree, Gem. 'Wow' is the only word for it.

Eidur will leave now though. I only hope he goes to Italy and not to Manure as has been suggested. But even without Eidur their front line is staggeringly good. I think without a doubt the best in Europe with the addition of Henry.

And boy will they be Q.U.I.C.K on the counter attack...yikes! icon_eek.gif

To compete with them as a team we really need to get a great right back and a right winger. I think our back line (right side notwithstanding) and depth in midfield (right winger notwithstanding) is pretty amazing. And Barca can't just buy in that 'fighting spirit' Chelsea have under JM, so I don't think we need to fear them if (when!) we get drawn against them next season in the CL. Though with a front line like they've got, we're certainly going to have to respect them.

Messi, Ronaldinho, Eto'o, Henry & Eidur.

I would be very surprised if all of those started the season at Barca. Im sure Guddy will be off.

I also just cant see how you can play Henry and Eto'o in the same team.

Am I the only person that believes Henry is in the same situation as Shevchenko before he moved?

New league, coming back off injury...the only difference was Shevchenko scored 28 goals before he moved.

The thing is, Henry has pace. Maybe not as much as he had 1-2 seasons ago but still more Pace than Sheva could ever wish to have and that makes a big difference.

well you could but... you'd have to lose either deco or xavi, and that wouldn't necessarily improve barca.... or you could move xavi deeper and into a defensive role, but that would undo rijkaards good work in moving away from the defensive side...

possibly a 352... but then you'd lose messi... it could well be disruptive... henry isn't needed by barca. signing say, vieira and dan alves would have been better. I think they have got yaya toure though.
