    I would suggest bringing in an older player for a couple of seasons has benefits. It all really depends on who is coming up through the ranks and how close to holding down a starting spot they are. Also some positions there aren't always going to be young players coming up through the ranks with the talent required. An older player can provide for the needs of the team now and allow our youth players to grow into squad members with less pressure. Of course it doesn't always work out that way, but in theory there's not anything wrong with buying older players. It's all about getting the balance of the squad correct.
  2. Andreas Christensen

    I just think this sends the wrong message. There are plenty of other players that could or should be sold to raise money before we think of selling one of our better prospects.
  3. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    To be fair, without Overbo it's Chelsea-United 2 CL finals in a row there.
  4. The Conte Thread

    Best of luck. Hopefully the groundwork has been laid for the summer and we can hit the ground running after he's finished with Italy this summer.
  5. Juan Cuadrado

    I thought he had a pretty good game. Saying that I'm not sure it won't be more of the same from him if he doesn't get stronger on the ball. He still seems to go down far too easily to be successful in the premier league. I have hope though.
  6. Frank Lampard

    He's a legend. Of course. Do I feel the same way about him right now? No. Will I get over it and accept it. Yes. It's an unfortunate situation.

    For the right money he could and should be definitely moved on. For me the latest reported offer from Barca is not the right money needed to justify moving him on. He isn't first choice at any position at the moment but he does provide quality depth and value to the squad.
  8. Post-season review - Chelsea 2013/14

    I guess it depends on what the expectations were at the beginning of the season. If someone really thought at the beginning of the season Chelsea was going to win the league or the CL then I guess the season is a failure. It has certainly been an improvement on last season and at least to what my expectation at the start of the season a success. Has the ending been disappointing? Yes it has, but that disappointment has been increased because we were in with a chance of winning a trophy. For those claiming last year was more successful because of winning the Europa you're missing a key point. We were only in Europa with a chance to win it last year because we couldn't make it out of the group stages of the CL. I'm glad we won it last year but I hope we aren't in a position to compete for that trophy again for a long while. In my opinion it's much better to advance to the knock out stages of the CL, in this case within a game of the final then win the Europa. Winning the Europa is a sign that you failed big time when you started in the season in the CL.
  9. General Transfer Talk

    Sign Shaw and let him backup Ashley next year. If given decent rotation he should be get enough appearances that keeping him doesn't hold him back. This might also allow Ashley another year and let Shaw take over from there in a natural progression.
