I wouldn't worry about Ballack...his playing style doesn't require him to run. He might not score as much but he's a passer/crosser anyways, he's got more longetivity than Lampard anyways.


I don't tjhink we'll be a 'build for the future as well Arsenal squad' anytime soon so don't rule out an older signing over a younger one with potential.

Yep, I think its too soon to be looking for young budding players in the market, to replace any existing players. Once our academy players begin to step up, then will be the time. Probably a couple of seasons down the line I would think. Until then Chelsea need to concentrate on consollidating their position in the grand scheme of things. Our older players have a good 2-3 years left in them at least, so I would think we will be relying on their experience for a few seasons yet.

I certainly would not want to go down the Arsenal route of introducing a whole team of young players who are still learning their trade. I've witnessed more than enough seasons that have finished empty handed in my Chelsea lifetime, to wanna go through 3 seasons of non-achievement as Arsenal have done.

The time will come though to introduce new blood, and it has to be done with care and planning, and not the wholesale method employed by Wenger.

Az, good points mate. I agree with all that.

When I first saw Arshavin playing for Zenit, I thought he was about 17/18 y.o. Man, he still looks like a kid.

Well as long as it gets done Zakov, then thats the main thing. I trust yer man if you wanna do it, or you can wait a bit to see if Az wants to do it. Whatever, its fine with me.:D

If you want me, too, sure. I don't think I ever updated it with new transfers or stuff, but, sure. Although, Zakov, if you wanna do it, go right ahead.
