Aria

Recommended Posts

In accordance with new Premier League rules for this season, a squad list has today been submitted. The squad can be up to 25 players and if the full 25 are named, eight must be classed as 'home-grown'. A reduced squad can be submitted if a club does not have eight falling into that category.

A home-grown player is one who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to the Football Association or the Welsh Football Association for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or 36 months prior to his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21).

In addition to the 25-man named squad, clubs can use an unlimited number of players aged 21 or under. An Under 21 player is defined as one who has been born on or after 1 January 1989.

These rules cover league games only.

Chelsea's submitted squad is (19 players)

1. CECH, Petr

2. IVANOVIC, Branislav

3. COLE, Ashley

5. ESSIEN, Michael

7. RAMIRES

8. LAMPARD, Frank

18. ZHIRKOV, Yury

19. FERREIRA, Paulo

21. KALOU, Salomon

22. TURNBULL, Ross

26. TERRY, John

33. ALEX

39. ANELKA, Nicolas

dont be enigmatic say what you think ..

I think our squad is too small to challenge on all 4(!) fronts,in my opinion we'll ultimately regret it.

And Barcelona has won the Champions' League, La Liga with pratically 15 players (or less)....

I maybe hugely biased against the La Liga but the EPL is much harder and requires a better squad than the Spanish league which is basically a two horse race.

I doubt that if this squad is too small for us ... since , we have not enough professional CB right now.. ??carloeyebrow.jpegcarloeyebrow.jpeg

Anyway, look at the bright side. I am glad to see Kakuta and McEachran play in first team... that will be awesomeemo4.gifemo4.gifemo4.gif

PS,, It just keeps bugging me why they keep Bruma in this squad, but not an experienced one like Mancieneexcl.gif

I see what you're saying mate, we were ravaged by injury in 2006/07 and that was with a similar-sized squad. However, I don't think we can be so unlucky again with injuries!

And finished with the double :D

Chances of loosing both goalies in the same game in similar ways...gotta be slim..we hope!

We shouldn't blame luck if something similar happens this season,we're not gooners and this is a calculated risk that we're taking.

people have been complaining for years we werent giving young players a chance ,,,now carlo intends to ,,,,and of course its wrong ...

seems some people are never pleased

I do but I think you can't compare the two situations due to the difference of the leagues and the squads.

Don't see how having a tiny squad is going to help Kakuta's chances in the team.We're not the first team trying to bring through young players and it's certainly possible without handicapping your squad depth.

That is my friend the nature of man ;)

well , it's pretty obvious that our squad lacks depth. you might say that is because we wanna give our youngsters their chances , well three out of those 6 players are forwards (sturridge - kakuta - borini) while we have the same no. of forwards as last year , we lost joe cole but we got benayoun .so i can't see how is this better for them ???

so this will be how it works malouda - Drogba - anelka are starters if anyone of them gets injured kalou will come in if another one is injured then benayoun will be next if our luck is so bad that a third one is injured then sturridge will come in and even if another one is out then zhirkov will come in . so for borini and kakuta who a lot of chelsea fans can't wait to see, will never be favourites to start games even if all of our three forwards are injured !!!!

so most probably they will get the 7 - 10 minutes in the end of matches against weaker teams when we are up 3 - 0 or 4 -0 , the only player i can see benefiting from this realistically is Bruma and may be sturridge but for others i don't see them starting or getting the needed time except hopefully in the carling cup .

i think we should have kept matic and mancienne who imo would have provided much much better cover than ferrera

my point is when you have three promising forwards that you want to give them a chance and you are trying to make your squad thinner so why don't you just let some forwards of or at least don't get new old ones instead of just letting off defenders and midfielders where you don't have the same no. of promising youngsters coming in .

Kakuta is more of a midfielder, not a forward although I recogn he'd be amazing on the wings despite the fact we are better playing without wings lol. Could maybe try it a few times with Anelka and Kakuta out there supplying Drogba lol :)
