AVB – Drop Bosingwa, Sign Gary Cahill & Play Romeu

When a top team scores three goals at home they are expected to win the points. Any team that concedes five goals at home means that something is dreadfully wrong!

When a top team scores three goals at home they are expected to win the points. Any team that concedes five goals at home means that something is dreadfully wrong!

Chelsea haven’t been able to keep a clean sheet all season and their defence doesn’t look capable of doing so any time soon. Virtually every Chelsea fan knows it already, but Branislav Ivanovic is a far better right back than Jose Bosingwa – and a far better right back than he is a centre back!

Not wishing a knee jerk reaction from a fabulous game of football (for anyone who isn’t a Chelsea fans) point of view, but this poor area of our game is now ‘out there’ for every other team to see, explore and take advantage of.

We can all argue that the Arsenal keeper should have been sent off, that Flo Malouda should not have given JT a suicide back pass etc etc. The fact remains that Chelsea’s defence is shaky and looks like conceding every time when faced with good movement and numbers by the opposition.

It’s time that AVB stopped messing around with Bosingwa and installed Ivanovich as his first choice right back until January, when we can bring in another central defender (maybe England’s Gary Cahill), he should use Alex or Luiz depending on the opposition. Chelsea’s problems aren’t in midfield or up front, with the percentage of play we are forcing or the amount of chances that we are creating, it’s simply in defence.

Playing with ‘freedom’ and for the ‘collective’ is all well and good AVB, but however Chelsea’s defence is currently shocking and it’s costing the team games, titles, cups and competitions and something positive needs to be done about it.

Drop Bosingwa for Ivanovich NOW, make sure we are ready to sign a world class central defender in January and put Romeu ahead of Mikel in the pecking order. The honeymoon is now over and it’s high time this dreadful defence is sorted out, even if it means dropping 4-3- 3 against certain opposition.

    AVB needs to make Ivanovic his right back, while Luiz should pair Terry and atimes Luiz and Alex would be better.Romeu ahead of Lmapard,Mikel as the defensive midfeilder.

      Romeu ahead of Lampard? Lampard, who is playing every bit as well as he ever has?

    we need to do away with the following players for the. Jose botsingwa. anelka. Paulo F. 1 more season for kalou and DD.

    • Rabbi

      October 31, 2011 at 3:15 pm

      No more season for DD. He should be offloaded this winter. There is nothing left in him anymore. These players should be offloaded to give room for new and young ones. When they are there, it seems we have players where as we have nothing but empty cans. They are; Didier, Nicolas, Salomon, Florent, Paulo, Henrique and Ross JOHNBULL. The earlier the better.

    nice suggestion,bosingwa should not only be droped but should be sold out,he isn’t a word class.and i believe he is always scared to face his opponent….ivanovic should be the one to take is position cos he is more better than bosingwa…

    Nobody dares to say it, but John Terry has been terrible covering quick moves through the middle of the defense all season long. JT is a legend, but right now he is a liability against better opponents. People will say he may have been distracted by off-pitch matters, but the facts speak for themselves – no clean sheets since the opening game of the season. Time to get more help in central defense. We are looking at the end of both JT and Drogba, who has lacked effort and interest in his last 2 appearances before bombing out with the clumsy red card challenge

    Pls Avb play ivanovic ahead of bosingba and play luiz wit terry and our golden boy micheran ahead of lampard pls

  7. Adeleke zero.5

    October 31, 2011 at 3:50 pm

    My advice to Avb is that, he shld drop jose bosingwa as our right back defender, he shld welcome ivanovic bck as our right defender. And david luiz and alex bck to the 6 defence. God help chelsea.

    If chelsea want to survive, the following players should be allowed to leave the club. Maluda, drogba, bosigua, kalou, fereral, anelka. Mikel must go to the beach, he is too slow, no desire to improve on his game. Ashly cole is old. He needs a replacement now. Sturadge is not qualified to be a starter for chelsea. Oh how’re the mighty falling. U mean sturadge now starts for chelsea. Chelsea or abramovich pls get us two quality wide players. Take us to the days of roben and duff. Dat is chelsea problem, and that is lampards greatest strenght. Quality Wide men.

      What would sending Mikel to the BEACH do? Is that some new age management tactic?

  9. solenzo

    October 31, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    Yes, Bosingwa should be replaced at the right back. Pls sell Drogba now. He has nothing more to offer. Sturridge and Mikel should be relegated to the bench. Give this young lad, Romeu enough playing time.

    We need to just drop Bosingwa. He was at fault for at least 2 goals on Saturday. Too many times he leaves too much space at the back. terrible passer, terrible defender. Why AVB stays with him I don’t know! But I have faith in AVB, but the defence seriously needs organising properly. Its embarassing to concede 5 at home. Romeu for Mikel, Iva for Bos and Luiz in CB. We need to play a deeper line against teams like Arsenal, City, Liverpool and United. Even Spurs now! Still confident we’ll bounce back

    Pls fans lets not jump in to conclution but bosingwa isnt the cost we lost the match i think almost all the goals was scored btw ivanovic and terry. We level up three three before john terry and rauls mistakes . We dont have a special seven to help bosinwa and i think it also effected paulo feriela to

  12. Liam

    October 31, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    Ivanovic is a disaster.He was at fault for the first and third goals.He can’t play full back because he can’t run,he’s got no pace.Bosingwa was drawn in to mark Gervinho and Sturrage fell asleep and left Santos free for the second goal.

  13. mallo

    October 31, 2011 at 6:44 pm

    yeah,bosingwa &sturridge most be drop & bring back ivanovic to the righ back far better than bosingwa,luiz&jt,avb let go back to 442 against top team to keep our midfild stronger.

  14. okolie kingsley

    October 31, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    i have been saying it and i will continue to say it, since bosingwa came out from injury, he lost form, i think is high time we should sell him and search for better right back in his favour

  15. Da Silva Ibrahim

    October 31, 2011 at 7:39 pm

    I did not watch the match 90min but the defense structure we use was the worst ever in our history, that same defense cost us against Man.United 3-0 before half time and now 4 goals in second half. I believe AVB but he must be very cautions with the decision of rotating the squad. That same defense cost our home and away defeat in Champions league to Man.utd, David luiz is best defender ever in our history he should be use in big games instead or we keep losing and also we have adopt to performance not squad rotation or AVB will fail for the season.

  16. Da Silva Ibrahim

    October 31, 2011 at 7:51 pm

    Bosingwa,Kalou,Drogba,mikel,malouda and Hilario has done lot for Chelsea but have cost the team more than what they did for us. Its time for them to leave or sticking to this kind of players would be a very big threat for AVB future. Playing bosigwa right back,Ivanovic central back and mikel defensive mildfield in same game is a bad omen for chelsea. AVB must wake up or this players would let him down.

    Sturadge I hve 2 start with him, he is not good player he just scores lucky goals, I dnt think he would be good, I think Anelka is far better than Sturadge, so pls AVB pls do somthing about that, also Mikel will bring ur downfall in chelsea u should note that he is 2 slow and not a good player I think u can use they young ones or david luiz,but 4 the better chelsea we should stop playing Sturadge and Mikel Obi 4 now

    I have said it before and I will still say it again that if Avb doesn;t stop its Portugal collection it will affect his job, Bosingwa is empty he should stick to Ivanovic and not Sturrige against big Team we;ve played two big games and loose, he should remember Scolari that said Anelka is his main man later on he left both Anelka and Drogba. if he doesn;t drop Bosingwa he will end up like Scolari and Sturrige is not sriker he caused us yesterdayand he is selfish and he use to play a secondary school ball.wasting many chances ,common pass error all is Goal is fluq,Experience first before young blood

  23. Tosin

    Sincerely fans, in my opinion, sturdge still need to be given more playing time b’cos, he’s young & ready 2 learn, as 4 jose, really, he has failed, mikel on d otherhand has also refused 2 up his game, so, 2 d bench mikel, a 4-5-1 play, is always d best opinion, choking d middle wit vibrant & skillful players who would b ready 2 support d man upfront also protecting d defence line.

  24. Bayo

    October 31, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    AVB will be obstacles for himself&his job,cos of his negative policy.everybody is talkin abt bosingwa,why can’t we talk abt that useless sturridge,cos he killin chelsea gradually.cos i dnt the reason why a coach wil prefer a player like studrige 2 the likes of anelka & co,cos if he has converted all d opportunity he misuse,we wont be complainin abt bosignwa

  25. Noris

    October 31, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    We need a player like cahil to support Terry, convert luis to defensive midfilder. Ivanovic should play right back, sturridge should be coming in as substitude cos he lacks experience. Give Romeo and our gifted midfieder Josh a chance to prove their worth. Drogba, bosingwa, paulo, malouda, turnbull, henrique should give way. Kalou will still be of value when he plays along his fellow youth, Anelka should be given a year cos of his experience. We need players like Neymar, Tevez, Van der wiel, Hazzard, De Bruye, Modric or Ganso

    Is better for AVB to drop anelka,Drogba, malouda, kalou, ferreira and hillario, if you want to last as CFC Manager.

  27. Dike Steven

    November 1, 2011 at 1:03 am

    Pls Avb play ivanovic ahead of bosingba and play luiz wit terry and our golden boy micheran ahead of lampard pls, Mikel is good, stop using lampard and Bosingwa, AVB drop anelka,Drogba, malouda, bosingwa and hillario.

    AVB enough of the Politics, Favoritism for Country man in your Squad. If you want to succeed in Stamford Bridge and not be shown exit door prematurely like others. Then u have to face the situation as it is. Every sane Coach would know BOSINGWA is ZERO. Not just dropped, Sell him. In the meantime Ivanovic is a better replacement. Others to sell/dropped. Ferreira, Drogba, Malouda, Anelka, Thurnbull. Non Starter: Mikel, Sturridge and Lampard. Think Think Think and Be Wise Mr. AVB

    u fans are talking about bosingwa alone what about ashley cole? He plays nonsense 4 us 4 d last 3 season. We need replacement 4 him 2, player like baines of everton…bosingwa,drogba,malouda,kalou,turnbul nd hilario sud b release. Avb pls act fast.l

    OK, all us Chelsea supporters are talking about getting rid of players that have served this great club with passion over the years. Yes, the time has come for most of the old guard to move on from the team. And by team i mean starting 11. there is no replacement for experience, likes of Lamps, Terry, Drogs, Nico and Essien could be crucial in grooming of Josh, Romeu, Lukaku and Sturrige. Saying all that, i think likes of Bosingwa, Ferriera, Hilario, Turnbull, Nico and Alex should be moved on now. Bosingwa is not good enough, Paolo takes up a spot for foreign players, nico and Alex want to go with Turnbull and Hilario r just not good enough. But more likely it seems as if end is near for the drog to. but more importantly…need to back AVB in the transfer market as well as bringing through our youth players. he will take us fwd with proper support
