I'm not singling you out here and in no way is this directed at you but its just a great time to say it. So Tottenham can rotate their 6 players in their midfield just fine but Chelsea can't. Just saying


YOU TRYIN' TO START SOMETHIN BRAH?

On point: There is a difference between fitting in 30-50 million pound players and trying to fit in 10-25 million pound players. All of your wingers are first choice wingers but clearly you can't start all six of them. And I don't think anyone mocks Chelsea's depth. My points have been why get Willian for 30 million pounds when you have a pretty big hole at your holding midfielder position? Or finding another striker (E'to is a nice addition).

Depth is a good thing but too many big players looking for their minutes can cause problems (see Real Madrid: Robben, Sneijder, VDV, Diarra², etc). It's rare to find that exceptional player who is willing to take a backseat, it's why I think City were so willing to hold on to Dzeko.

Fair points. I think we'll all be able to give them time though. I'll also admit even though I love Willian as a player and he's definitely going to improve our team it's just freakin silly to sign him with the lack of talent we have deeper in the midfield.

That's the bigger issue I have with it. And it's not about giving them time, Chelsea have too many matches, getting into a rhyme getting them into the matches they want is a tall tale of micro management.

Holy cow, if this is accurate and we complete the transfer, then this will be a steal.

Man, if he can return to his old form/promise. Wow what a deal, Levy and Baldini are a match made in heaven.

Spurs are going to have to field 2 teams with all the players they are signing

Cannot keep them all happy with playing time for sure

I still expect Siggy, Ade, BAE and possibly the likes of Lennon to be leaving the club. With maybe a few going out on loan. We do have some immense squad depth, though. I think AVB will field very strong teams in all competitions this season.

I actually think Eriksen is the best signing including Lamela, Chadli etc.... 12 million is very cheap for that guy.

He could well be a very good signing. Time will tell. I think Capoue will be the biggest steal though. For £8 million the guy has looked fantastic.
