    Robben joins Chelsea

    Arjen Robben has joined Chelsea from PSV. Robben was going to join Manure, but it fell through with all the dramas going on there.

    So far he and goalkeeper Petr Chech have been the only other signings for next season.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    dammit. we are buying too many players. i'm getting a bit annoyed with it all. they should have made some kind of 3 season plan. but all this in half a season is just lame.

    Well I would get rid of: Neil Sullevin (not a good goalkeeper), Robert Huth, Winston Bogarde (football's biggest bludger), Jesper Gronkjaer, JFH/Eiduar Gudjohnsen.

    I would loan Sullevin out to Dunferlime.

    Players like Damien Duff & Joe Cole are starting to find out the joys of playing at a club who wants to have all the good players.

    This is why teams like Real Madrid & Chelsea will never be exceptional teams because players get annoyed too easily with team selection & transfers.

    Ah but Real Madrid has won more CL's then anybody else.

    Give Chelsea time and once they all learn English (or Spanish or Italian) they will be good.

    Real Madrid are an exceptional team, best in the World probably.

    Nobody there gets annoyed, they fight to regain their place - which is why they're so good.

    Sullivan is a good back-up to have, but probably will go.
    Huth is a good player - should stay.
    It's not Bogarde's fault the club offered him all that money, but his contract is up, so he won't go.
    Gronkjaer probably will go now Robben's in.
    As for the 2 strikers, why ell if they're scoring goals?

    JFH or Eiduar, probably one will go. They might be looking at Trezuquet or Vieri. If Vieri stays fit, I'm pretty sure he will score a lot of goals. They missed a trick in not getting Adriano, before Inter got him from Parma. He would costed quite a bit of money (over 20m) as he was owned by Inter and Parma. And now he has settled in.

    Bograde will stay if he gets offered another contract, I doubt it.

    Sullivan should look go back to Scotland and try his luck with Dunfermilne as they will need two new goal keepers. It might help him get back into the Scotland squad.

    They need another defender, and striker to be honest.

    I hope Carlo Cudicini keeps his place once Cech arrives because he's a great keeper (& pretty gorgeous too ).

    COME ON YOU BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm guessing the latter comes to the fore and the former comes after the aforementioned latter.

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(
