Chelsea FC 07/08 Team Lineup

I’m a die-hard Chelsea fan I have been destroyed by the loss of both the Premiership title and (again) the lack of a champions league trophy to add to the trophy cabinet. But I’m far from blaming this on Mourinho. I think I speak for every Chelsea fan when I say he is the ONLY manager for the job. But i believe that Chelsea have to make some serious changes to the playing staff.

I am getting worried about all the speculation about Lamps and Terry leaving because without them I believe that Chelsea would only be scraping a UEFA cup spot. Even if their contracts are tied up in the next few weeks we need to make changes.


Here is a starting line-up that i believe that would win Chelsea the league back and would finally win us that highly coveted Champions League trophy:

GK : Petr Cech (irreplaceable)

RB : Daniel Alves (would reportedly cost 15m but money well spent on a player that would finally end the search for a reliable right back)

CB : John Terry ( always irreplaceable )

CB : Alex ( yes Alex. not Carvalho. this guy is fast, skillful and a complete powerhouse. )

LB : Ashley Cole ( this one was hard because Wayne Bridge pushed him at times but I think that we are going to see the best of this guy next season )

RM : John Obi Mikel (great prospect for the future. Mourinho already admitted we will see a lot more of this guy next season. shone near end of last term. Hes one to watch )

CDM ( if we stick with the diamond midfield) : Micheal Essien ( his power will be essential if we are to win the quadruple next year )

LM : Florent Malouda ( stated he is unhappy and wants to leave Lyon. cheap but an amazing player. Lyon’s top scorer last term. mourinho already said he is interested – sorry Joe Cole; I dont find you in the starting 11 next term but will be an amazing player to bring off the bench).

CAM : Frank Lampard (if he is here if not KAKA )

CF : Didier Drogba ( I have to say i was one of his biggest critics but the wind stopped blowing him over and he has stopped accusing the grass for fouls and has become one of our brightest performers)

CF : This one I really am undecided on but at the moment I am leaning on Tevez but when David Villa arrives i will probably be proved wrong but now we also have the powerful and experienced Claudio Pizzaro who will be a definite goal treat next year. Tevez will be at Chelsea though and Mourinho will impliment a four striker rotation system between them. ( Remember we lose Drogba and Kalou to the African Nations Cup. )

That leaves one more thing who will be leaving us here at Stamford Bridge. I think we have seen the last of the disappointing Khalid Boulahrouz and the useless Geremi. I also believe we have unfortunately seen the last of Arjen Robben. He was the brightest talent in his first season at Chelsea but has become the most injury prone player at the club. And yes you guessed it Andriy Shevchenko. Really he never arrived and at this stage I along with many Chelsea fans have become fed up with his lack of effort against worthwhile opponents.

Thats all I have to say on the matter and a few of you people probably disagree with me on more than a few of the points I made in this piece.

I will be proved right just you wait and see.
