Summer Buys?

Summer Buys?

Saber goes all mystic on us!

This is for the benefit of those who asked me to take a punt on transfers like the one where I called Hazard coming in and Hulk not coming at a time where every media outlet went nuts about Hulk to Chelsea.

Here is my punt on next seasons squad-

• No Fellaini.
• No Falcao.
• No Cavani.
• No Benat.
• No Isco.

Sorry guys, but here`s what I`m putting my money on-

Goalkeepers - Cech, Turnbull, Butland

Defenders - Cole, Bertrand, Terry, Cahill, Ivanovic, Luiz, Azpilicueta, Wallace

Midfield - Mikel, Essien, Ramires, Moutinho, Tiote, Hazard, Oscar, Mata, Marin, Moses, Willian. (not sure about Willian, could be another winger)

Strikers - Schurrle, Ba, Torres...

Manager - Jose Mourinho

And if you are a betting man, you might want to put a dime or two on Chelsea winning the FA Cup this year.

It`s the only silverware well win this time even though it`s Tubby leading the charge (guess its a bigger miracle than last year).

I hope I`m wrong because I really like Falcao, Benat and Fellaini... Cheers....

not too far off from my team but i'd have a couple of changes in midfield and attack. Defence - same as yours Midfield - same except for Tiote, Marin, Moutinho & Willain ( instead i'd have Fellaini, Isco, Benat & De Bruyne) Strikers - Same except for Torres, (Torres leaves in summer & i'd replace him with Jovetic)

Im sorry but Moutinho and Tiote are far off. KDB will be back as well and Torres leaves which allows for another striker. Mourinho isnt going to buy Schurrle IMO.

Saber waves his mystical wand! Lol. Not a fan of transfers so ill be fine with whoever comes in as long as its what we need and the right position. CM(a regista,someone that directs play confidently) top priority.
28/01/2013 17:19:00
Need 1 world class strikers along with Ba and lukaku (Falcow) .... if we need to complete with the likes of Mancs !!!! need a proper winger along with moses (some one with pace to burn, KDB) !!! need a good backup keeper (butland) along with a proper manager (mourihno) who will be given time !!!! Outs: torres, marin, lamps, mikel,

1) Isco: He extended his contract today and has a release clause > 30m now but I agree with Saber Isco will be really difficult we would have to pay around about 35m to get him and will have to beat competition from other big clubs. 2) Benat: Same as Isco there will be a big auction for his signature what I mean is Man City will also bid for BOTH of these players. 3) Falcao: Will chicken out of EPL, he knows that he might find it difficult here. 4) Cavani: Will join Man City. 5) Fellaini: Will go to ManU. 6) Willian & Moutinho: Will go to Spurs. 7) Paulinho: Will join Inter or Man City.

Not sure how to respond on this one. I appreciate that you didn't include a bunch of ridiculous and unlikely names, though if you had written this a year ago I'd have said the same of our signings this past summer. With Roman, you truly can never know. Personally, I think it would be crazy not to recall some of our loaned players. I want De Bruyne at the club, and we'll have a gap to fill assuming that Lamps goes. This is an important time for Josh--will he ever make it at CFC? We've got to find out soon enough. What about Bruma? The list could go on and on.
28/01/2013 17:56:00
Nice 1 but I don't see a moutinho and a willian,willian is a hulk kind of deal that won't happen,instead I see james rodriguez coming in as the winger,you left romeu out of your squad but I see him in the squad instead of essien and one of either falcao or cavani also marin will leave and KDB will be used to replace him.....chelsea will sign butland but he will be out on loan because chelsea won't have any intention to start rotating goalkeepers that's risky you know
28/01/2013 18:00:00
@B2k420 loooool so who do chelsea get? Scott Sinclair back from City? honestly lmao
28/01/2013 18:02:00
ill be happy just for Mourinho to return with on loan players coming back like Thaibut, KDB, Piazon, Lukaku, Josh

@Radio...: 1) I am sorry to tell you but IMO, Josh will never make it at Chelsea, he might play against week oppositions when we are winning 3-0 and same goes for Berty. 2) De Bruyne: His first touch was so bad in the preseason, I said to my mates that he should be loaned out in EPL but Chelsea board had some agreement with Bremen as they didn't sell Marin to Spurs and so he ended up at Bremen. IMO Chelsea will sell De Bruyne & Bruma.>>>Only players who will or can make at Chelsea are who force their way into the first team straight away, going on loan is a dead end.
28/01/2013 18:09:00
@JohnnyOz: I thought the same thing after my post who is left for us, lol, it is the mystic in me. On a serious note it might be the FFP that is why Chelsea are being careful. >>>@Blue Bezerkas: IMO out of all those players on loan ONLY Thibaut Courtois I see playing for us (as a 2nd goalie) i.e. unless we sell him and make some dosh/profit.>>>It might all change if we get a coach who likes to develop young players not someone like Mourinho.
28/01/2013 18:16:00
Hmmm, Everton are set to sign Leroy Fer, a Dutch midfielder nicknamed "The Bouncer" because of his size and strength. Sound like a Fellani replacement at all?!
28/01/2013 18:29:00
For the record, I don't see Josh ever making it at Chelsea either RD. Pity, the kid I saw come on and totally change that League Cup game against Newcastle a couple of years ago (although we still lost) gave me great hope. He's still yuong though, so you never know and we live in hope, that's what football fans do!
28/01/2013 18:31:00
B2K420 - seeing how as you mentioned FFP, how the Hell are Galatasaray going to meet that if they go splashing the cash on wages for the likes of Sneijder and Drogba?!
28/01/2013 18:33:00
Saber, I really hope u are wrong about this because this players are a bit mediocre except ofcourse fellaini and willian, I see chelsea to be like this next season, cech,courtois (hopefully), jamal blackman, cole,pva,betrand*,terry,luiz,cahill,iva,kalas,cesar,chalobah,kdb,mata,oscar,moses, willian or isco(one will come), mikel, ba, schurlle and one out of the blue buy
28/01/2013 18:44:00
Manager? Mourinho? Or perhaps laudrup?
28/01/2013 18:46:00
If it's going to be Jose, just do it now! Madrid don't want their Manager and we do. We don't want our Manager and for some inexplicable reason, they do, so just swap and let us all get on with our lives!
28/01/2013 19:09:00
Spot on , but moutihno? I have him in my fifa career mode chelsea squad but I think considering how porto sell for , he won't join us. Good squad , doesn't seem to lack depth either.
28/01/2013 19:28:00
hmm....its a tough thing I wanta say is that I have been watching tiote at afcon (I really used to like him)...but I think his tackles have been totally horrific...if he was playing in the BPL, he would have been red carded in both matches... very good player but his discliplinary record is terrible and it looks like its gointa get worse...not sure I want him here any longer...but this is saber we are talking about here so lets wait and see....
