Yeah, KDB seems like he'll be a central midfielder in the future. Good for us. Could be bad for McEachran though.

We have Ramires too. Hopefully Di Matteo will realise he is probably our best option for the 2. Which surprises me. Thought it wouldn't suit him.

Either that or we have to play Mata alongside Grandpa Frank, thus completely negating his ability.

Sucks to talk about Lamps like that, cause the guy really is a club legend. Premier League legend even with his goal scoring exploits. But with the style we're trying to play now and the way we are trying to move the ball around, he's just not going to cut it.

He's my favourite football player ever. But it's just not working, to be honest I don't even think it's an issue so much of "1 year too long" I just don't think he is adapting to the deeper role as well as I thought he would. He never relied at all on physical attributes anyway.

If he was content enough to spend more time on the bench and help transition into the new generation there wouldn't be any issues. If we actually bought some decent centre mids he could play further up the field where he's at his best.

Yeah very true. Lampard is a legend, but doesn't suit our new system.

We could do with a new centre midfielder. I think Jao Moutinho and/or Vidal would be good signings for us. I reckon we can get them for 20 million-30 million each.

Hmmm Valencia and Vidic announced injured on the same day.

Vidal would be amazing. Quality, quality player in my view. Trying to deal with a Vidal/Ramires combination would be horrendous for the opposing team. Two box to box midfielders, if the tactics were done properly you could have it where one would go forward, the other drop back. Could be great.

re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (Winning at home is overrated anyways)

Personally I'd like to see old school CAM Frank Lampard. Making late runs into the box and awesome shots. As an impact sub or used more sporadically, he can be very useful

Unfortunately, he wants to play as many games as possible, as long as possible, and CM is the role. And I believe he can play CM, because hes quite good at defending and attacking, but he lacks the vision, quick passing and he cant go 90 minutes twice a week.

I'd love him in the Giggs role, because as Joel said, Lampard is a true club legend. Terry, Cech, Lampard, Cole and Drogba were the most influential chelsea players of the last 10 years.

Honestly, I believe the one thing our team is missing right now is a CM. Either someone who can control a game or someone Felliani or Yaya style or can just overwhelm the midfield.

Im not too worried about Striker because hopefully by the end of the season, Drogba Jr will be ready
