other clubs routinely buy players and use them the next day. Chelsea, especially under conte waited far too long, to the detriment of the team

There is actually pretty little risk. If he doesnt work out,he is gone in the summer. If it work out, we have a good striker at least for 6 months. 

The risk ,mmm  i think without a striker to get us goals , we will not get top 4 or win anything this season.

This. I don't understand why people keep saying that there is no risk involved in Higuain's deal. Yeah, from a financial point of view, there is no actual risk, but we still have to play football and reach our minimum goals for this season.

If Higuain fails to make an impact for any reason, then we are fucked big time. I can see Sarri playing Eden as a false 9 for the rest of the season and we all know that in this case, it won't end well for us.

Asked - in Italian - what Higuain can bring to Chelsea, Sarri says the striker is capable of scoring goals and can contribute with his all-round play as well. Sarri also says he believes the player can rediscover his best form.

Asked, again in Italian, about Higuain not succeeding on loan at AC Milan from Juventus, Sarri says the Argentine is a winner and suggests playing in a poor side has affected him. He also suggests Higuain has not yet been formally signed so is not ineligible to play against Tottenham.

Sarri on Higuain helping him: "I hope so, I think that the club agrees with me when I told them my opinion about the team. So January market is very difficult especially for a striker, it is difficult to find one of the most important strikers in the world."

Good move considering the circumstances. If he does well, Chels have a striker for 6-18 months. If he doesn’t do well, he goes back.

I think a lot of people overrate Chelsea’s pulling power. It’s fun to fantasise about top talents and players joining the club but most of it is unrealistic. Chels can’t do much better than this in a winter window. That’s reality.

I still think Lacazette is the among the most ideal strikers for this system. I wish the club would go for him but no noise sadly.

I hope a fullback is added to squad as well. This team is in desperate need for new fullbacks on both flanks.

This is why I'm not excited...Higuain hasn't been scoring goals...

I don't want this to end up a Torres MKIII. Crossing fingers he isn't.

He doesn't have to be pacey, we just need someone who knows where the back of the net is.

Agreed. We have players who can pass and move. We just need someone who can be in the right spot and kick the ball into the goal!

There is no chance Arsenal is selling to us now he is a regular for Arsenal. A new starter calibre fullback will be terrific but I know they will not come this window. 

Hopefully Higuain can get in form and bring goal threat and some nastiness to our front line.

I'll be surprised if he is ready for spurs. It is almost impossible to sign and be ready the next day especially coming from different league. 

Hopefully he can start or come off the bench against sheffield. This should help me get adjusted to physical nature of English football.

Well I was crossing my fingers...

Still, can you blame me for thinking like this? What good player that we signed made a huge impact since Kante.

It's just I get really excited when we are trying to do summet good. I know the majority of the time we dont let go and end up all frustrated but it's really hard not to when you have passion for something.

I think I'm just like a soppy old Labrador, bouncing around,slobbering everywhere and humping peeps legs! Very loyal tho!

 

As for putting him on - why not. He knows Sarri well and Jorgi. Just be looking to give him thru balls. Even if its last half hour. He's match fit.

I don't understand. Do you prefer betting on sulking Morata or Higuain?

I didn't say or imply that I want people to not get excited for Higuain.

I just have my doubts, and they are pretty valid. If Higuain erases those doubts (aka banging goals that we desperately need) then I'll jump on the wagon.

It come down to this. Sulking Morata, Hazard as no 9 or Higuain. 

No one in here is jumping for joy or super excited. Higuain is 31, he is not the solution for our striking problem but we can't continue playing without any goal threat from our no 9

what a let down it turned out to be, all of us expecting Liverpool hot form Torres, but instead we got a washed up one

No, not all of us. I was depressed and the knowledge that all the people who had questioned my sanity, when I told them the truth about Nando, would soon be apologising to me didn't help at all.

Agreed, the warning signs were there with Torres for at least 12 months before Chelsea brought him. 

Liverpool buying Suarez in the same window and City buying Aguero the following summer for significantly lower fees makes the signing that much worse too.
