Gonna be great to see him back at the bridge for a proper send off from us. Such a solid performer and had such pride in what he did. Essien, Lampard, Ballack.... What a tough midfield that was to get through at their peak.

Good to see he is playing again after that bad injury. He provided the stabilty to our midfield, Ironically on here he was criticised for slowing

our play down. Will get a great welcome at the Bridge though.

Dude showed immense determination in every game... that's the main thing I'll remember him for, always gave his all

We really are a pathetic club if we are going to give some great epic standing ovation to someone who was nothing more then a giant paperweight on the pitch most of the time and only seemed useful for marketing ploys for adidas. Great player when he was in Gemrany but was one of the most overhyped and underwhelming performers in a Chelsea shirt.

It wouldn't be so bad if everyone didn't see him as some sort of club legend.

Fantastic signing that Real Madrid, Man Utd, AC Milan all wanted and...... we got him on a free !!

Started slow (bit like Fernando the Wonderhorse), but scored some really vital goals later on -the 2-1 win over Yernited and against Blackbum to get to the FA Cup final spring to mind. Beset with injuries several times led to erratic perception.

Could really do with his physical presence now....

Fuck him.

Racist.

I remember BB you doubted him initially - back in 2006 -fuck me was that 5 years ago?? -then you had to grudgingly admit to me and Esk that he was a top signing. Remember ?

Edit ; thought it was Badboy posting -cant see user name

I agree calling him a legend is a over the top.

But you can't deny his class in a Chelsea shirt? He may not have been how he was in Germany but was certainly important.

Our lack of creativity and quick tempo in the middle since he and deco left suggests otherwise.
