Squad taken on Tour


Recommended Posts

Joe Cole underwent minor surgery yesterday (Wednesday) to correct a small tear in his meniscus. In light of his previous surgery, excellent rehab and recent return to full training, this is only a minor setback and we expect Joe to return to full training in approximately one month.

As a result, Joe has not joined the party for the tour of America, which is listed below.

Petr Cech

Hilario

Ross Turnbull

Branislav Ivanovic

Ashley Cole

Michael Essien

Ricardo Carvalho

Andriy Shevchenko

Frank Lampard

Franco Di Santo

Didier Drogba

John Mikel Obi

Michael Ballack

Claudio Pizarro

Florent Malouda

Scott Sinclair

Jose Bosingwa

Deco

Salomon Kalou

Daniel Sturridge

John Terry

Alex

Juliano Belletti

Nicolas Anelka

Michael Mancienne

Sam Hutchinson

New signing Yuri Zhirkov will be joining the tour in progress.

So only Sam Hutchinson really going on the tour as a youngster! Mancienne and Sinclair were expected to go really. Bit of a blow for Ryan Bertrand and Jack Cork though, they need a loan at as big of a club as possible.

Not good news for Joe Cole either.....

Going on the tour doesn't mean that certain players will 100% be staying. It is just that our pre season training is continuing in America. I would be suprised to see either Pizarro or Shevchenko still here when the transfer window closes.

True but thats pretty much waste of tickets. Sheva and Pizzaro wont be here next season, why take them...? Why not take Bertand/Cork or Kakuta instead....?

Seriously, I dont blame Nouble, We actually take two loaned players in place of two talented youngsters... :rolleyes:

I think Ancelotti would probably want to have a look at all his players before he decides who can go, that is why Sheva and Pizzaro are on tour, remember Pizzaro had a great season with Bremen and maybe Ancelotti feels he could use him

Sheva played pre season for us last year and i swear he never touched the ball. SWP even played well in pre season and he went too, so did bridgey in fact, he missed the pen against lokomotiv. I'm happy Sheva and Pizarro are going, just be cool if they score, Pizarro was good last season by the way for a shit bremen team. He might play with some confidence and hit it off (well maybe not).

Lets just see what happens.
