Chelsea | 4-3-3 - who’s the best front line?

Chelsea | 4-3-3 - who’s the best front line?

With a fee agreed for Belgian wonder-kid Romelu Lukaku, it is apt to look at Chelsea’s strikers and which ones fare best. Anelka, Drogba, Kalou, Sturridge, Lukaku, Torres and maybe even Malouda could be considered as ‘strikers’ or players who can play in a front three which based on Andre Villas Boas’ friendlies is what the manager is going to use week in, week out and as such is what I’m going to base this article on.  What we don’t …
Is McEachran Ready to Make the Leap?

Is McEachran Ready to Make the Leap?

'That's Liam Brady!' yelled Ray Wilkins in excitement after seeing young Josh make a move reminiscent of the footballing great. McEachran, as a 15-year-old, was with the Chelsea side when they competed against Argentinian club side Racing, in an Under-17 encounter. Despite being one of the youngest players on the field that day, it didn't faze the youngster in the slightest.

David Luiz, Alex or both for Chelsea?

Before the start of the season the talk has mainly been about Sneijder, Pastore, Lukaku and the like for Chelsea, attacking players that should plug a lack of creativity that has been evident over the last season however there is one question that has been seemingly forgotten. What’s our best centre back partnership? As John Terry is our captain it’s a safe bet that he is going to be one of the two centre backs and as Branislav Ivanovic is …
The decreasing influence of Lampard

The decreasing influence of Lampard

Frank Lampard over the years has been an ever-present in the Chelsea side, scoring goals consistently and being a main attacking force in the Chelsea attack, however last season with his injury as well as his increasing age his influence has been decreasing for a while, he never really relied on pace and it showed in the previous season when our midfield was pedestrian. As well as being pedestrian there was a lack of creativity in midfield, Frank although an …
Chelsea v Man United | An Analysis

Chelsea v Man United | An Analysis

When looking back at the 2010-2011 season there was only one real stand out match for Chelsea which was positive, the home fixture against Manchester United. This fixture was the start of a small turn-around in the season, a lift that was needed for us to at least challenge for the title, in fact at half time in this fixture we were 18 points adrift of our opposition, the next time we faced them we closed down that deficit to …
