Will There Be A Major Overhaul at Chelsea This Summer…

The question regarding whether there will be any summer overhaul at Chelsea this season has been in the minds of all Chelsea fans across the world. Well no one can definitely say anything on it unless you are Roman Abramovich.

But considering this season and what we achieved and rather what we failed to achieve it seems more likely that the answer of the question will be YES. And to be honest this has to happen sooner rather than later.

We offloaded many players at the start of the season and failed to find their replacements and at some point in time we suffered because of it. I am not saying we made a mistake in letting many players go, that was because of financial aspect of club but we made a mistake in NOT bringing in their replacements. The only first team signing we made was Ramires (I know we also signed Benayoun) and that definitely cost us. Well enough of talk about mistakes of this season.

What about next season? Will we make balanced signings? Will it be possible to sign a few good youngsters considering the upcoming fair play rule? Considering when Chelsea is interested in a player his value gets doubled every time, will we be able to strike a bargain deal?

There are many other questions like will Carlo be the manager? If not, then who will be? Will we find a replacement for Ray Wilkins? Who will succeed Frank Arnesen and what will be the new team of scouts as Arnesen will take most of his scouts to Hamburg.

So what we can say is that there are many issues to be taken care of in the summer. Manager, Players, Administration staff.

If you are given a choice then whom will you like to be signed? Which player/s would you like to go out? Would you like to see Carlo next season? Please let us know what you think.

    Chelsea need to make a huge overhaul as the guys have done their part its time for them to move pastures anew. If Ronaldhino had stayed at the Nou Camp will Messi have been World Footballer of the year?No?
    Bold decisions must be made this summer so that we address the ills in problematic departments once and for all.

    Width- Honestly Chelsea has inside forwards rather than wide men and in the absence of Full backs of Marcelo/Alves s mould then real Electric wingers are needed.The young boy Neymar on the Left and Sanchez on the Right.

    mIDFIELD-Fabregas would be the best of the lot because of experience at the highest level. I wouldnt want KAKA his wages are on the high and is injury prone and is now 29. I have watched Parlemo and i think Pastore would fit well with a huge transfer outlay but very reasonable wages. Another option wil be Paulo Henrique Ganso.No KAKA please.

    The following need to be shipped out- Anelka, Malouda, Kalou, Drogba, Bosingwa.

    Chelsea need to sell some players. this includes BOSINGWA, Anelka, Malouda, Ferreira, perhaps Drogba, Turnbull, Kalou, and Zhirkov. They should be replaced by Begovic, Van Der Weil, Hazard, Sanchez, Neymar, and maybe Lukaku, Hamsik would also be a good option.
    so the new line up would be:

    VDW Luiz Terry/Iva Cole
    Sanchez Hamsik Ramires Neymar
    Sturridge Torres

    Alex, Begovic, Hazard, Lukaku, Essien, Lampard, Mikel, McEcharan, Kakuta, Bruma, Van Anholt

    Clear out is very necessary but there has to be quality replacements. Lukaku i dont think we need him he is untested and has not played at the highest level and looks like he is demanding more wages.
    Lets recall Borrini from Swansea (natural goal scorer), include Dani at Bolton.Tevez has a huge wage bill and looks like he is nomadic.Bale is injury prone and has a huge price tag.Hamsik is yet to be tested on the World Stage and also carry a huge buy out clause.

    The area to do with width should be addressed urgently together with the issue of a Playmaker.

    If the funds where available a new enforcer is needed in the Holding Role and if we could get +25million for Essein we could swap him and maybe get
    Fellaini or the Roma super star De Rossi
    or Swansteiger.

    I think Chelsea main problem was our football directors.they made a plan to replace our aging players with the young ones from our academy.The likes of kakuta,mceachran,bruma,boroni and patrick van Aahoit were promoted to replce the likes of ballack,calvalho,belleti,joe cole and deco.The start of the season was very good for Chelsea,but due to lack of form and injury to Chelsea,we are relegated backward.I think we gat to do away with the likes of drogba,anelka,ilario,ferreira,bosingwa,malouda and essien,to clear ways for the likes of aguero,van der weir,sanchez,neymar,lukaku,pastore,nastri,and a very good goal keeper to compete with petr cech.

    Chelsea should sign younger players.

    1. Van der wiel (RB)
    2. Lukaku (CF)
    3. Hazard / Mata(LM)
    4. Neymar / sanchez (RM)
    5. Hugo mallo (From spains segunda division)
    6. Kevin de bryune

    other younger players that chelsea should buy for the future are
    1. Guillherme costa (Brazil u 17)
    2. Zohore (Sweden u17) also drogba’s nephew.
    3. Caberellos (Paraguay u 17)

    Drogba should be wielded the axe too. Cheslea spent 50million pounds on Torres its high time we believe in him and mould the team around El Nino with quick attacking flair. No to Kick and Drab and a pedestrian midfield. We need Jogo Bonito.Thats what makes Torres flourish. His days are numbered maybe he should try going back to French football.How many goals has he scored?Thats not good and his age and wages dont add to him deserving wearing the Blue jersey.

    Chelsea is skilled but slow. We can’t cope with the speed of ManU strikers. Chelsea must sell old stock and buy proven youngsters. Ramires is a good example. It’s possible to keep some old players to assist the transition. Drogba and Terry can do another year but should not be relied on. Chelsea must secure their future now with talent like Neymar, Van De Wiel, and Subotic.

    angelotti needs to go,then do all it takes to get hiddink back!!!! the players loved him as well as the fans theres no passion with the current boss and the players seems not together under him,you can have 12 world class players but if there not together it wont work and thats why chelsea flopped this season. we only need two signings maybe three given drogbas age, we most def need a(rb)as we all know,maybe vdw or daniel alves.the second signing we need is at left wing as we all know malouda is just not good enough so the answer is (bale)but wwith his injury problems is it really worth taking the risk spending(40m)only to get half a season out of him?? so id personly go for hazard instead. then buy neymar to partner torres as i think drogba has past his best but still have him as a squad player. essien in my eyes has had a bad season,he looked lazy and far to reckless and again i think its down to the boss…i mean people say angelotti is a world class manager well i say to them this is england mate not italy,chelsea won the double last year not because we had angelotti the reason we won the league and fa cup was because we had drogba at his best end off…..the players have seen the light under the eyebrow (lotti) and dont like his ways. get hiddink and your see torres shine and the title back to west london… dan essex.
