Recommended Posts

The squad list for the group stage of this season's Champions League has been announced.

Clubs are allowed to submit an A List and a B List, both equally eligible for selection for games. Regulations mean the A List consists of the majority of the first team squad while young players who have been at Chelsea for a period of time make up List B.

The squad lists are:

A List

Petr Cech

Branislav Ivanovic

Ashley Cole

Michael Essien

Ramires

Frank Lampard

Yossi Benayoun

Didier Drogba

John Mikel Obi

Florent Malouda

José Bosingwa

Yury Zhirkov

Paulo Ferreira

Salomon Kalou

Ross Turnbull

Daniel Sturridge

John Terry

Alex

Nicolas Anelka

Henrique Hilario

B List

Patrick van Aanholt

Jeffrey Bruma

Gael Kakuta

Fabio Borini

Josh McEachran

No club may have more than 25 players on List A during the season. Eight places on List A are reserved for 'locally trained players'.

A 'locally trained player' is either a 'club-trained player' or an 'association-trained player' and no club may have more than four 'association-trained players' listed among the eight.

A 'club-trained player' is a player who, between the age of 15 and 21, and irrespective of his nationality and age, has been registered with his current club for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or of 36 months.

In the case of Chelsea, an 'association-trained player' is a player who, between the age of 15 and 21 and irrespective of his nationality and age, has been registered with another club affiliated to the FA for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons or of 36 months.

These regulations mean Chelsea's A List will contain 20 players for this season's group stage.

A player may be registered on List B if he is born on or after 1 January 1989 and has been eligible to play for Chelsea for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday.

Following the submission of these lists, a club may register up to three new eligible players for the remaining matches, such registration completed by February 1.

I feel like every move made this summer was solely to prepare us for the CL. We didnt pick up any significant strikers because this year, were doing a triple. Theres no room for new players to adjust at this time. Ramires is an exception because he has plenty of support on the pitch from his position, and can adjust much better throughout the season playing alongside Essien. But a new striker would not benefit us in CL. Anelka and Drogba have one or 2 more runs left in them for a CL title, until we NEED a replacement, we wont be singing one.
