17 Places....who will make the cut??

Why Talk about 25 when you have competition for 17!!!



With the transfer window shutting down fast, too many fans of their respective clubs have been talking about the crucial 25 man squad...I for one at Chelsea believe more than the 25 we must look at the 17 players who will make it to matchday squads. This is more crucial as it is one of these players that end up being the difference on d-day. Well our starting XI is more or less settled This is how i see it to be: Cech-Ivanovic-Alex-JT-A.cole-Ramires-Lampard-Essien-malouda-Anelka-Drogba. This is probably the best side we can put out. The most important thing is who are gonna fill up the rest 6.

1. Hilario and Turnbull
2. Defense: Ferreira, Bruma, Mancienne, Van Aaholt, Zhirkov.
3. Midfield:Obi Mikel, Benayoun, Kakuta,
4. Forwards: Kalou, Sturridge and Borini.
Mar 16, 2010 - London, England, United Kingdom - Chelsea's coach CARLO ANCELOTTI at the UEFA Champions League match between FC Chelsea and Inter Milan. Milan won 1-0 advancing to the quarter final.

The above apart form considering Hutchison, Matic, Bosingwa.

We need one GK so that place would go to Hilario. Obi Mikel, Kalou and Benayoun looks to make the cut for their experience and they typically will come good. 4 down. the last two places seem interesting We have Zhirkov who is a senior player but has really not produced the form for us. Ferreira is getting too old and I would seriously advise selling him off. We need to get Bruma in the first team. Also I highly believe Kakuta must make the cut because he is highly talented and if we dont give him opportunities he is gonna leave us soon.Sturridge also looks good with his displays in the community shield.

For the last two places we have sturridge, kakuta, Zhirkov and Bruma. The others i am sorry to say must lose out though van aaholt and Zhirkov have been in teh game the last two matches. I don't understand why two subs as left backs. Zhirkov will come Ahead and so will Sturridge because Carlo really likes him. Now for Kakuta and Bruma. They are real good and I would look to include Bruma because he can cover for a CB or as a RB. I agree that i am a bit partial towards Kakuta. The business with Yossi is useless. He is a bad buy. An eternal super sub, WIth the intention of developing our youngsters he only stands in the way. So based on our game i.e defense or offense we will get to see Kakuta/Yossi play.

The above has been considered without counting Bosingwa who will take his place at RB when fit which would put ivanovic on the bench. Also if we buy Neymar then he would stake a place too. Surely Carlo would have to sell one or two big names. We will look shaky with youngsters but thats the belief you have on them.
