Those Days are Numbered!

Those Days are Numbered!

The increasing gossip, relating to the future of Daniel Sturridge, infers that his time at Chelsea Football Club is definitely coming to an end.

The inference being that although we`re seriously lacking in the strikers department, Sturridge will be off in the January transfer window.

The latest reports infer that both Liverpool and Tottenham are willing to stump up the reported fee of £12 million but these same reports go on to infer that Sturridge has already decreed that Anfield will be his destination and it is there that he will get his wish to play as a central striker.

Here at Vital Chelsea, we`d be very surprised if Daniel was to feature much in a Benitez starting eleven between now and the window opening, just in case an injury would stall a move that, we believe, is designed to raise funds to be put into the pot for us to obtain a world class striker to assist Fernando Torres!

I quite agree, if chelsea is willing to sell sturridge to have started negotiation with his suitors so early then that means we need the money from his sale to supplement the budget to sign a big replacement.

With this news of sturridge departure, the likelihood of falcao's arrival is getting brighter. He didnt feature in any of atlectico madrid's europa league matches. They are very willing to sell so they can have money to settle their tax problems. Falcao's replacement in the matches that he has missed have also done very well for them in his absence. The only obstacle would be real madrid's interest which i think is getting serious by the day.

byes sturidge...i am sure I will be alone on this one...but he never really convinced me...might become world class if he cuts the bullox off his play..but will he?...only time will tell....12m sounds like a fair lets a striker who truly knows when to be selfish and when to play for the team...chelsea is way bigger than individuals ..carefree!

Madrid aint buying Falcao. And Falcao's arrival doesnt necessarily mean we are gonna be playing better with TUBBY in charge!!! Tubby lost against Corinthians!!!!!! Crap face!!!
19/12/2012 17:16:00
roll on the falcao deal....
19/12/2012 17:18:00
Take note of Benitez' title...INTERIM MANAGER ....
19/12/2012 17:19:00
Youre right Blue_mel. The sooner May comes,the better. Cant stand him at all.
19/12/2012 17:26:00
hope danny becomes a hit at liverpool he is good player who never got his chance...hope he shows his worth there..and about falcoa he is another flop going to happen at chelsea....let roman burn his finger once more...he likes to do it again and again...the way he is managing chelsea now the bad days has already started and the worst day will be comming soon...
19/12/2012 17:37:00
walcott will replace sturridge. we r sellin sturridge but not torres how is that fair? i hope he becomes a worldclass player and comes bak to haunt us
19/12/2012 17:43:00
hey guys let rafa finish his term and the board will decide.good managers are shunning our club.plz stop the blame, players are the one to put a finger at.
19/12/2012 17:45:00
3nity,get over it,that face will be around atleast till summer. If Torres was half decent a striker in that match,the story would have been different. Didnt you notice he was fed very well in that game,but as a saying goes,'you can take a horse to the river....' The choice is yours, you can continue hating on Rafa or pray we get a capable striker to do the damages and see us finish the season well.
19/12/2012 17:52:00
Am on the opinion that danny should stay.if we'v been pantient with torres,then we should be patient with danny.but this is chelsea where democracy means less(wish of majority does not hold.)
19/12/2012 18:02:00
Sturridge could be superb.He's got pace,trickery,great left foot,great on the turn,sharp but just lacks one thing.He hasn't got a football brain.
19/12/2012 18:15:00
@thebreeze....looooooool.....isn't that a bit on the harsh side.?...its touch and go really...honestly he could turn out to be world class eventually (i have serious doubts though just because of what you said above)....its ok when you are playing like danny at 23yrs...but when you are 26-28yrs and still making terrible decisions..then it becomes a huge problem....and i think thats what happens when the footy brain aint reaaly there...LMAO...

This is very sad and one of the reason I find supporting Chelsea frustrating. The guy has proven time and time why he deserves a spot in the starting line up. First by forcing a loan move to bolton where he scored 8 in 12 (0.75 goal a game) and then scoring 13 goals and assisting 7 in the first half of the season, more than torres and drogba (and that was from being played out of position; he never complained and got on with it).

The whole breaking into the first team is a myth at Chelsea because nowadays unless you are bought for a huge some of money (in which case your place in the starting line up is a given) there is no chance of you making it at Chelsea. I fear for players like McEachran, Piazon and Chalobah.

*first half of last season
19/12/2012 18:59:00
Competition for places my ass..... doesn't exist at Chelsea!
19/12/2012 19:05:00
Unless you're bought for large sums of money you have no place at Chelsea....Even if you do end up loosing us games, competitions, trophies. Its the price tag that matters here not the performance.
19/12/2012 19:05:00
*cough cough Torres and Hazard!
19/12/2012 19:08:00
Torres is loosing us games and trophies...Yet its sturridge being shipped out.. Chelsea are clueless!
