Summer Transfers - The Ones I Fancy


the wes

Recommended Posts

It`s been an open secret that this summer Avram Grant will be given significant amounts of cash in order to lay his mark on the squad that he has inherited from Jose Mourinho.

Therefore, we should be expecting a lot of speculation and long dragging transfer sagas that could become as boring as waiting for a youngster to get into our first team (see how I`ve developed Soulja`s skill in bringing up another topic into the one discussed).

To cut a long story short, I`ve listed my most preferable transfer ins and outs that if would happen, can make me proudly say that we have the strongest squad in the world (as well as making me jump over my couch in joy).

* These transfers are based on the assumption that Didier Drogba has found out that neither Barca nor AC Milan were seriously interested in him and hence admitted that he has never said that he wanted to leave, but was in act 'misquoted`.

OUTs: - (A little bit unexpected)

Tal Ben Haim - never looked confident when he played. The only fans who were pleased with his signing were the opposition fans because they know how good he`s at peacefully inviting others to get pass him. Even as a free transfer, he`s still a bad deal because we should have got paid for taking such a player.

Paulo Ferreira - one person who will definitely not be pleased with that is Mrs. Merlin, but I feel he has nothing more to offer although whenever he was asked to fill in he did a decent job (but, decent isn`t enough).

Steve Sidwell - he was a good player at Reading and one who I thought would be a decent buy given that he was a free transfer, but he failed to shine and one reason for that is his attitude on the pitch. He just hides away from his team mates whenever they are looking to pass the ball. He has been greatly intimated by our "big players".

Florent Malouda - a player who I didn`t want to come in the first place and one who hasn`t been able to show his best form. He had a promising start but then faded away. He`s not at the top of my outs list as I feel there is more to come from him, but at the age of 27 (28 in June) I`m not so willing to give him time.

Claudio Pizarro - another free transfer that was allowed to Jose. Well, he`s not Chelsea material. Some of you might argue that he wasn`t given enough chances, but we can`t give time to players approaching their 30s. He doesn`t possess any certain qualities. I can`t see him succeeding in the Premier League.

Andriy Shevchenko - considered by many as the biggest big-signing flop of all time. He came with a reputation of a world class striker, but never found his feet in the Premier League. He`s 31 and therefore, time isn`t on his side. Although I admire his character and how he strives on succeeding here at Chelsea, he`ll never recapture his old form. (Still, I could see him staying)

INS: -

Daniel Alves - I know I might annoy some of you when I keep on mentioning his name, but I still think that he can make us far more stronger. I appreciate what Belletti did, but he`s nearly 32 and Alves is nearly 25. He`s the best right wingback in the world and if some matches need a more defensive right back, then we can play Ivanovic. Maybe Paulo or Boulahrouz could be included in a player + cash deal.

Ricardo Quaresma - a skillful two-footed winger who provides great crosses and manages to score great goals. He`s a nightmare for any defender with his electric pace and tricks. He does have a bad attitude (from what I read) but maybe that guy who works at our club can fix it (No, not Grant - I meant Tan Cate, he`ll straight him up). Again, Paulo or Boulahrouz could be included in a player + cash deal.

Luka Modric - a creative attacking midfielder who`s only 22 and can provide that attacking flair that we are supposedly missing. Another option could be Rafael van der Vaart, but I`m more inclined towards Modric because of his age.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar - a target man whose goal scoring record at every level is amazing. At the age of 25, he could do an excellent job for us for years to come. He has said that he wants to leave Ajax at the end of the season. Another target could be Kenwyne Jones.

That`s my dream team. I even tried it on PES and we were playing the best attacking football you can imagine whether in a 4-4-2 or a 4-3-3 formation. Although it`s slightly childish to base my assumptions on video games, I feel that this transfer activity would do us a lot of good. We would have 2 balanced teams. In a 4-4-2 (for MrDax to be pleased) 1st: Cech, Alves, Ricky, Terry, Cole, Essien, Lampard, J.Cole, Quaresma, Anelka and Drogba. 2nd: Cudicini, Belletti, Alex, Ivanovic, Bridge, Mikel, Ballack, SWP, Modric, Kalou and Huntelaar. That will leave us with Maka, Hilario and Sinclair (he won`t get in any of them unless we bring in Wenger) as surplus and we won`t have to sell Lamps and Ballack Mr(It`s time to sell Lamps and Ballack) Dax I`m not suggesting playing 2 different teams, but I`m in fact stressing the fact that we will have 2 quality players in each position in a 4-4-2 formation.

The best part is that we can get Tuby Rafa in the summer to rotate those 2 teams without having to pay a penny because he`ll be sacked soon.

Please express your opinions.

Huntellar is from my country, and i have been biggin him up for a long time. The fact is he would die in the prem !

no pace no strength he is not a target man he is a goal hanger.

Luca modric is a good player, but their is a brazilian who is better at the age of 19 and his name is celsinho.

Ricardo what ever is shite, he is to similar to j.cole in style but not as good and no he is not fast at all.

Dani alves is a good player a very good player but he would cost too much.

Alves and Modric would be good. I reckon a clear out of a few ditherers who dont want to be here might be good, and get fresh blood in.

Ruud played in a team who gave him all the chances in the box. They had ronney feeding him

through balls as a second striker, ronaldo and giggs crossing the ball in neville too.

If klass jan came to us, we would not play the 4-3-3 formation because you either need a player who can hold up the ball like drogba or a player who can run in behind like anelka.

Klass jan is a clinical finisher with nothing more to his game, he cant hold the ball up and he

has no pace plus he is lazy.

Outs:

Sidwell - either on loan or in a permanent deal, he wasn't good enough when we needed him to play bar a few solid games and he won't be good enough when we have Essien and Mikel back and playing regular football.

Ferreira - I don't want him to go as he has done a good job ever since he arrived, but since 06/07 he has not quite been good enough. I think this is a confidence issue because he was statistically the best full-back in Europe in 2005 and the best right-back in the EPL the following season.

Pizarro - I can see him going to another PL club such as Wigan or Blackburn, where he will get a good run and probably net a dozen goals a season. Good luck to him

Sinclair, Stoch, Sahar, di Santo - I can see these four as prime candidates to go away on loan at various points in the season, possibly to lower-region EPL clubs.

INs

Karim Benzema - no introduction necessary.

Daniel Alves - the missing piece in our puzzle and at the moment the only player in Europe I would swap Belletti for. Problem is is that Jules is getting old and has only a couple moe seasons left in him, I think.

David Villa - I can see him coming to Chelsea whether or not we need him to. Bbut I wouldn't complain rotating between Shevchenko, Drogba, Anelka, Benzema and Villa.

Sounds like a lot of sense to me Badboy, I'd say you were right there.

And One Bar, that was mighty random. I guess you don't like it when people give out their opinion like other people care, but I think people do care what this blogger has to say (and no it wasn't the wes and it was blatant that it wasn't his writing, seeing as he gave a source at the bottom).

I agree, but Joe Cole is top top class. And Kalou is on his way to being top class too. He is the only one who will run at players with pace and try to beat them, which is what we need in our wingers.
