Chelsea's best ever


waldron

Recommended Posts


My front line would be Ossie, Zola and Dixon.

Sure Drogba has had a great season but that is only one good season he has had so far, not enough for me to put him in a Chelsea best ever. Kerry delivered time and time again for us.

I think I'd have to pick Greavsie over Kerry Dixon. Before my time, but look back at the impact he made while he was at the Bridge, and imagine what might have been if he hadn't buggered off to Italy and gone to that tip in North London.

We've seen some great players at Chelsea over the years, making it very difficult to pick a best ever XI - so I've been looking at a few alternatives.

I can imagine fans queuing up to throw themselves off the top of the East Stand after hearing this team announced: -

Worst ever Chelsea XI?

Mark Bosnich

Gareth Hall - John Sitton - Micky Nutton - Winston Bogarde

Roy Wegerle - Slavisa Jokanovic - Juan Veron - Bolo Zenden

Robert Fleck - Mark Falco

subs - Dennis Rofe, Kevin Hales, Alan Dickens, Enrique De Lucas, Gabriele Ambrosetti, Johnny Sissons, Trevor Aylott, Dave Mitchell, Alan Mayes

Most underrated Chelsea XI?

John Phillips

Paddy Mulligan - Erland Johnsen - Colin Pates - Clive Wilson

Jesper Gronkjaer - Sam Dalla Bona - Eamonn Bannon - Peter Houseman

Steve Finnieston - Kenny Swain

subs - John Sparrow, Alexei Smertin, Laurent Charvet, Craig Burley, Jon Harley, Danny Granville, Bjarne Goldbaek

The 'Take No Prisoners' Chelsea XI

Petar Borota

David Webb - Micky Droy - Doug Rougvie - Joey Jones

Johnny Boyle - Graham Roberts - Ron Harris - Mickey Thomas

Mick Harford - David Speedie

My apologies to the players mentioned, it's only a bit of fun - honest! icon_lol.gif

(before someone jumps in, yes I know he played more than 5 games)

My old man is (obviously) a fair bit older than me and I asked him about this a couple of weeks ago. Like many of you old gits on here he's alway's harping on about the good old days when player's were players etc. But he reckons that although he prefered most of the players way back when, than those currently wearing the blue, the only one outside of the last 10 years that would get in the current team is Ossie - he even tempered that with "but you'd have to choose either him or Zola". So based purely on ability would any of you change your teams.

Mine:

Cech

Clarke JT Elliott Bridge

Gullit Wise Lamps Nevin

Zola Dixon

Subs; bloody loads.

That would be some dressing room. Wecould have Wisey and a certain Vincent Jones as subs!

But Speedo would be banned from celebrating goals by showing his arse! icon_lol.gif

I am fully aware, but I really loved the guy, and when he was on (although never really for us) he was a great striker

I just thought that Fleck, Falco, Mitchell, Aylott & Mayes were all a lot worse than Chris Sutton icon_lol.gif

I would certainly have Beasant ahead of Bosnich

Beasant played really well when he first came to the Bridge - it was only later on that he showed what a complete w*nker he was, with the Norwich home game being his all time low point nervous.gif

To be honest, there have been worse keepers than Bosnich at Chelsea over the years. Tommy Hughes comes readily to mind......I just didn't think anyone would remember him icon_lol.gif

You know, BB, 'A lot worse than Sutton' is just not a sentence I ever expected to read on the CSR! icon_eek.gif
