So which Chelsea players are going to rot on the bench and fail to develop for a year or two?

Recommended Posts

Ala 2003?

Currently they have Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Marko Marin, have just bid 19m for Internacional Oscar, they have Josh McEchran, aswell as Ramires, Lampard, Malouda, Meireles

They're currently pretty much without an established second/first choice striker, so unless they plan to instantly start giving Lukaku first team games I imagine another striker, possible two will be coming (Hulk?)

They seem to be investing in a lot of younger players as the clubs second major overhaul/spending spree is taking place since the older crop are getting on

Most of these players are good enough to be playing week in week out but somehow I can't see it working out for all of them and all of them being happy with rotating, I can see one or two careers being stalled, especially if they continue to add to their squad

Imo Hazard will undoubtable be a success so it won't be him, but some of the other players, Oscar, McEchran, Marin Lukaku are going to be in danger of being the victims of a big clubs spending spree and not getting the devlopment they need had they gone elsewhere

It all of course depends on what lineup and formaiton Di Matteo uses

Sturridge's days seem numbered unless he's earmarked for a ST position or RDM changes formation

Marin should be okay considering how packed their fixture list will be (club world cup/super cup)

Unless one of Essien/Mereleis leave McEchran looks pissed

If they do get a new right winger it'll be interestin what happens to Ramires

Think Lukaku will suffer again, guy looks raw, moved too soon

Would love us to make a bid for McEachran, always been impressed by him and he has next to no chance of getting near there starting line up.

Essien's heart doesn't look like it's there anymore IMO.

Reminds me of when Rosicky returned. Just playing in the hope of not getting injured.

essien is 43 tbf

RDM said chelsea have three strikers going into the season..... Torres, Sturridge and Lukaku ?

Mata left side....Hazard central and Oscar right side.... if they sign him...maybe ramires there in the big games

Marin will be a rotation option and im sure he knows what he signed up for

if they cant sell malouda he will be used off the bench too

Dont think McChecran is good enough

I fucking hope not.

 

Think Essien will just be used to fit in as cover when needed.
