People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
Lukaku or Torres? Both wont start games over Costa. But I think lukaku offers more coming from the bench.
Is Drogba still good?
#DareToDoubtDrogba?
Please. The King is ready.
Not like he was of course. But still have that clasa and experience as well as the affection with the fqns. Old but Gold #LegensIsBack
Class is permanent my friend, though age is not on his side, but at least he can still send Arsenal fans to oblivion state.
Javier Zanetti won CL with Mourinho at the age of 37 with a steady performances.
I wish both Cech and Courtois stays... rotate in FA cups/COC/Ucl would be nice
The problem of rotating GK is that might disturb their forms, hence you do not see many teams do it. In saying that, Chelsea is competing in 4 fronts, so maybe it might work. It is all down to how will both keepers take it when being place on the bench.
that's what we did in 2004-05 season with cudicini and Cech. Calm down guys
Mou's thoughts about the coming season and the new signings:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-2706032/Jose-Mourinho-relishing-new-season-HIS-Chelsea-team-wants-Premier-League-title.html

Some key parts -

(on Costa) "It is easy to see a big, strong guy using his body, attacking spaces, holding up the ball and pressing people,’ he says. ‘But, with proper football eyes, the guy is much more than that. The movement is incredible, the intelligence is amazing, the choices he makes in terms of movement are fantastic. The guy is a real top striker. I can say that because I’ve known him for a long time"

"Fabregas is a player of control, he’s a player that wants the ball, a player that needs the ball. In these matches away, we will have much more control of the game and much more initiative than before"

I am still curious about their decision on Lukaku, i don't want a situation whereby we will make a wrong resolution and later regret it in the future. As a matter of fact, i will rather loose Torres than loosing a young promising whining lad
Everybody would rather loose Torres mate.
+3
I wouldn't wanna loose Torres
Well you're one in a million kid! Congrats :)

Here's a cupcake!

Welcome back Didier!!! Always have respect for this guy. I know part of me hate Chelsea for whatever reason(some of you would know that), but with the return of Didier and Mou (love both of them). A small part of me will be cheering you guys on and hopefully you can snatch the title if we cannot win it! Best of luck this season!

4 strikers, 1 spot. Last season we had 3 strikers, only Torres + Eto had a consistent run in.

1 will leave. And as suckish as it sounds, Lukaku seemed the most probable to leave.

Torres, our messiah, our angel, our best striker who gives consistently good performances without having an eyesore, will stay. Plus, torres hinted earlier he will stay. With his friend Cesc coming in, he seem more and more likely to stay
As I said before, Lukaku counts as homegrown and him staying would solve a big issue ATM for Chelsea with the quota of 8 HG players required on the squad list of 25 men. Lukaku hasn't even been given a shot at Chelsea's first team and despite having an over-active mouth in regards to the press deserves at least a full year at the club he signed for 3 years ago.

Abramovich has an app he uses when scouting players. Apparently, no player is considered unless they score higher than 85% (whatever that means). He should put Torres' numbers over the last 3 1/2 years into that app. I'm pretty sure he'd be below that margin of pass or fail.

Lukaku, even though he hasn't played in Europe is miles better than Torres, and has a very big upside. I don't see how under any circumstance Torres could possibly be rated higher than Big Rom in any category strikers are rated.

-EDIT- Except big game experience. That said, if a player after 3 1/2 years has nothing new to offer the team, maybe it's time to move on. Strikers are highly over-valued and do not in most cases have a long shelf life. There are exceptions, Torres is not going to get better the more he plays.

So if Lukaku goes, we still have one more HG player to include in the squad. Moses or Bertrand or a youth player or a new signing, take your pick?
+1
No, this is Chelsea's plan on how to utilize them:

Everton continue talks with Chelsea striker, Lukaku - Guardian


so are both Cech and Courtois staying or is Cech going to leave :/
Cech said, he will fight for his place
He's a true legend. None of this, "put me in the team or else," bulls#!t
At the moment Chelsea have 19 players for 17 non-HG spots.

2 people have to leave - most likely out of Torres, Mikel, Romeu, Cech, Courtois.
Mikel and Torres please.....I wish Ramires was in the list too, but im sure its not going to happen :(
+2
I can see Mikel leaving Romeu just signed a new deal didn't he?
Yeah him signing a new deal means he won't be sold, but he could be sent on loan again. Although tbf he's done well when he's played for Chelsea, probably a better option than Mikel.
I think you meant non-homegrown players @Theo. Considering Lamps and Cole left we need 1 more HG player to fill the quota because Cesc is HG. Moses? Or a player from the youth team?
Lukaku counts as homegrown! Seems like it would make alot of sense to keep him around. To me, what makes no sense at all, is keeping Torres. Hopefully Mou and Roman see the sense in this and force Cupcake to leave. Even if it means paying half his wages for the next 2 years. The whole Torres saga deserves an epic facepalm!
So... This is what I would do, Torres to Athletico (whatever it takes), Lukaku stays, counts as HG and Torres gone means one less international spot. Sell Mikel, Moses, Marin. Buy Pogba or Khedira and we're set for the year.
Yeah I meant non HG. You're also right about Lukaku.
