Chelsea struggle a lot with CFs, it's quite sad. We're still waiting for the day where we can have 09/10 Drogba up front every season. Even Didier was very inconsistent. You're right, I genuinely can't think of a fully consistent striker in the Roman Era. What a shame.

We have made lots of terrible purchases. Mutu, Crespo, Kezman, Torres, Schevchenko just off the top of my head. 

There is a lot of money in the Premier League but it's all chasing a lot of mediocre players. The real top quality ones go to Madrid/Barcelona/Bayern. Look at the strikers of those teams. They only buy the cream of the cream in terms of talent while we waste our funds on dross. Batshuayi is another pointless signing. 

Other leagues are probably having a laugh at the Premier League teams and the funds their throwing at donkeys. Stones 50m pounds. Martial 60m pounds. And there was a story that Lukaku and Barkley are going to go for 100m pounds combined. The fact that someone can suggest this possibility without being ridiculed shows how crazy things have gotten. 

Summer transfer window is crucial but I hope they don't fuck it up on poor players.

Wouldn't include Martial in there because he has top ability, just being massively wasted at United and Jose the Youth killer. In fact, I'd take him at CFC, would be fantastic with Hazard. But yeah, agree with the rest of your post fully.

Well I don't think any striker out there that we could get will solve this problem. Inconsistencies. 

This is why if we go for lukaku we should not get just him. Lukaku needs a deputy and I can see why morata is being linked because in games like this what was needed a poacher. Morata fits that role. 

Today a llorente or even giroud would be great options to come from the bench. 

Because it's this sort of games where is won by a poachers goal or header type of goal. 

Despite all the shenanigans of Costa for me he is far better then lukaku and would like to build with him in getting someone like morata. 

But if he wants to to China for real then there is nothing we can do and sell him

Let's just hope that if we get lukaku is not just him. Because we will have the same problem we are having right now. Blow hot and cold. We need that deputy to be either our poacher or header specialists ala llorente/giroud. 

i want to understand this. we are mentioning llorente and giroud.

if we compare costa and lukaku who look likely of the two to do what llorente and giroud do. we all know the answer and it isnt costa. he actually doesn't have a head to use in heading balls.

i am asking again can anybody convince themselves that all the crosses that were delivered today, lukaku would not have knocked one in with his head or with is back facing goal . 

i watched his game against greece and he did quite well carring the team to salvage a point and almost take all three in a side without Hazard or KDB

Let's be honest. Lukaku and Belgium struggled against Greece and only got that equalizer because Greece were sent down to 10 men. Apart from that he did not make an impact.

Lukaku is not header specialist strikers like llorente. 

Tight games you need this type of players, it is why we get bail out by defenders a lot of times because that's one of their specialty. 

Wouldn't it be good to have that option from the bench in a striker? Weather is for headers or just a poacher? 

I remember chicharito was a great poacher. Not a player you build your team around but great to have on the bench and come for games like this. 

I see that in morata.

Funny enough we used to have our own super sub in Kalou.

I was re-watching some of our older matches the other week and I can't stress enough how useful it is to have a player that's willing to come off the bench and save or win you points. 

Honestly thought Traore was going to be our next version of Kalou but Abraham probably has a better chance next season. I don't see Bats staying...

Why didn’t it work out at Chelsea?
David Fisher, via Facebook

I had some very difficult personal problems during my time at Chelsea. My family lost two children. Emotionally, it was very, very hard to go through all of that on a personal level. Professionally, it was great. The fans were unbelievable. They sang [he breaks into song] “Hello, hello! Hernan Crespo, Hernan Crespo!” I wanted to give something back as I felt I had their respect. I had fun with Chelsea. The English have great respect for footballers. I loved London. I would run all the way there if I had the chance to go back.

At the risk of going OT, I wouldn't put Crespo in the flop list. Apart from his injuries, he was heavily rotated by Claudio in his first season but he generally did well when he was used.

In Mourinho's 2nd season he was superb in some games( the Liverpool game comes to mind where he got a beauty incorrectly chalked off) but again was good in the majority of games he was used in.

We won the Premier League with him contributing equally with Drog goals-wise, no way he was a terrible purchase.

People refuse to see that he has completely dropped Chelsea and Conte. Doesn't give a fuck anymore. 

If only he had the same mentality like for example Luiz. Cunt.

I don't think he's a Chelsea fan. 

He seems more like a troll that was once banned and came back with a different account.....
