Joel just wants to BUY THE LEAGUE.

Knows his team can't develop their youngsters like we can.

Sturridge isn't that bad, tbh. He hasn't even had an opportunity to play centrally this season. At least give him a chance to prove himself when he's not asked to play on a wing. Hopefully Moses and Marin can fill that role and Sturridge can be used as the main striker in less important matches.

We do need another backup, though.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

If it comes down to it we can just recall back lukaku

im guessing we included a buyback option

and in the case of drogba, he was awesome, he was a proven scorer, but the fact is, even in his prime, chelsea has never been much of a striker team. even in the days of Jose when we first won the title in a double, we werent too big on the whole strikers deal

for fucks sake, our top scorer in 2004 to 2006 when we won the premier league TWICE was Frank Lampard! The fact is, we've always been a team that more or less scored through a combined team, not just a single striker. What I will miss from Drogba is his ability to score HUGE goals when needed, but its almost impossible to be on the look in the market for a guy with the description "Enjoys scoring in Champions league finals and FA cup finals"

Honestly, even looking at our first few games this year and the games last season, very few of our goals came from strikers. Our defence wont stop scoring for some reason. Drogba was damn near shit in the league near the end

I'll miss the crap out of that guy, but honestly, it was time to let go. And by next year Lukaku will come good (remember it took drogba a while to settle into the premier league too), and we will have our new bigtime striker. For now, i think our team can put the ball in the net and Sturridge and Torres are pretty good

Falcao will cost around 35 to 40 mill and after our last couple of strikers, i dont think we're so crazy on the whole 'dropping stupid money on strikers' deal

If I remember correctly, Atletico bought Falcao for 40 million.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Redead, the last time we won the league Drogba banged in 29 (league) goals for us. The game has evolved a lot more since 2004-2006. A lot of teams are better than they were back then. And we don't have Mourinho in charge anymore. We need a striker who is going to get us over 20 league goals if we want to challenege.

Edit: LOOOOOOOL. Spurs have bascially agreed a deal to become Madrid's feeder club after the Modric sale. Small time club.

same, was surprised Lyon would sign him but a 1 year contract is not a really biggie and a good back up player
