Re: Official Premier League ~ FA Cup ~ Carling Cup ~ Discussion Thread 07/08 Season

Chelsea's signings have all been questionable, none have exactly made me go wow or feel even slightly jealous.

One things for sure, teams won't be scared of facing Chelsea anymore, because as you said they got lucky so many times last year late into games, Wigan and Watford naming just two games.

What's the situation with Alex? If they get him, they are looking very strong in the centre back area.

Yeah they've got him, he's got his permit and everything sorted now. He'll fit in very well, although I can see him being suspended several times in the season because he's so dirty.

There's no way I'd sign for them.



Bad joke



And yeah RM, I agree with you on that. In the past, some Chelsea signings have made me feel worried that they'd perform better than us. Sheva did that alone last season.

......that was bad.

Alex is a monster of a player.

They have quite easily the best centre back strength in the league, in Terry, Carvalho and Alex.

I wouldn't want any of Chelsea's new signings tbh, unless you count Alex as he's good, but too much of a cheat for my liking.

I'd want Alex, and maybe Pizarro, that's all.

I'd be hopeful of seeing such great scenes as this at the end of the season:

Watching John Terry cry every two years when we beat them in the Champions League Semi Final is good enough for me.

Re: Official Premier League ~ FA Cup ~ Carling Cup ~ Discussion Thread 07/08 Season

The best thread on this forum returns.

My predictions:

What I'd like to see:

1.) Manchester United
2.) Liverpool
3.) Chelsea
4.) Tottenham

This is only because I'd wanna see Chelsea finish third, Liverpool finally do better then third and to see Tottenham do well again.

What I think will happen:

1.) Manchester United
2.) Chelsea
3.) Liverpool
4.) Arsenal

Yes, that's rather dull and predictable. But I just can't see that top four (in that order) being altered yet.
