Hi guys, I must warn you this really doesn't promise to be an article per se, but an open thread I'm sure any lover of Chelsea wouldn't mind adding to, though it may not even be an interesting one either.
Right. Our London neighbours over at N5 are said to be sweating over the fitness concerns of their only true striker, Oliver Giroud who is feared may be out for three months or a third of their season as a result of the injury the Frenchman sustained during their hard-fought draw with Everton over the weekend, and are consequently rumoured to be in for a one time target of ours, Loic Remy, yet another French international; yes, we all know Arsene Wenger loves 'em French anyway.
So how does all these concern Chelsea? Well, look no further than the fact that Chelsea, understandably at least one proper striker short, are in the market for, yes you've guessed it, a proper striker.
Enter Loic Remy and Mattia Destro, both available yet talented strikers who can actually strike a football and score goals and actually scored a lot of goals last term, unlike one £50m 'striker' Fernando Torres.
Well to spare you the ramble, the strikers in question are rather cheap with both coming in at a combined sum of £28m; Remy at £8m and Destro, £20m. And dear 'Nando, good heavens, is said to be packing his baggage en route the Italian peninsula as we speak, which makes this all the more feasible, if not sensible!
Yes, I'm realistic enough to know it probably won't happen and is, in fact, more of me thinking wishfully, after all most of you by now already know I belong to the school of thought of Sir Fergie's whereby the theory is that of keeping four strikers who can comfortably prosecute a league campaign and chip in with goals numbering in double figures anyway.
But are there any ideas or surprises why Chelsea haven't won the Barclays Premier League since the good old days of Nicolas Anelka, The King Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou or, heck, Arsenal since, well, aeons?
Any guesses why Manchester City of all clubs have come to mix it up with the big boys??
So there you have it and you can disregard anyway, my own way of shrewdly spending the Lukaku money and, of course, a wise way for Mourinho to gazump his old friend Arsene and his Arsenal, and have them looking elsewhere for firepower.
What do you think if this interests you?
By all means feel free to get those lovely teeth of yours into this. How would you spend £28m?
