By now it's probably sunk in that Chelsea have won the Champions League title, and are the CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE. Can you hear the angels sing when you read that? I can.
But now that the club football season is over, we've got some other matters to discuss. I'm sure we all agree that we need some fresh faces, especially considering that some of our squad players are leaving (Kalouless and The Unibrow). There's a few problems we have now, such as the Old Guard of Terry/Cole/Cech/Lampard being, well, old; the Up'n'Coming being too young/inexperienced; the strike force (Torres and Sturridge) being slightly bad; a lack of depth at right-back; a lack of proper out-and-out wingers; a lack of history, etc. etc.
Now, we can fix this. Uncle Roman and the Russian Oil Mafia have oodles of cash, and I'm sure if we ask nicely enough, he'll be willing to splash the cash for his club. The only problem is, who do we buy? Now, I'm sure we all have our own opinions on the matter, so let's just line up all nice and orderly like, and we'll do this with a poll.
Now, call me crazy, but for the last month or so, I've been writing down every name mentioned as a possible (and hopefully realistic) transfer target. The names you guys mentioned. I might have missed one or two, but I've still ended up with a long list of 54+ possible targets. I didn't want to put that all in one poll, so I'm going to split this up into 3 categories.
- Forwards (i.e. Strikers, Centre Forwards and Wingers)
- Midfielders (Defensive, Attacking, in-the-hole
/ outside-the-hole / around-the-hole)
- Defenders (Right/Left-Back and Central)
The flavour of the day is: FORWARDS! Let the voting begin! Pick your favourite forward!
Remember, there are still 2 more categories left, so don't be too upset if you don't see your favourite target's name on this list! I haven't forgotten people like Lucas Moura, Nuri Sahin, or Mario Götze! They're on the next list!
