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
