Creating a free flowing football side


Hi, long time reader, but this is my first post. Now this all hinges around the managerial situation, but given that he's the club's first choice, I will operate under the assumption that Pep will be our manager. (a large assumption i know) The question than becomes how to implement his system at Chelsea. I for one feel with the addition of Hazard, we almost have all the pieces we need. I think we would switch back to a loose 4-3-3. We have Hazard, Torres, Marin to operate as Messi, Alexi, and Pedro. In defence I can see Cole, Terry, Cahill, and i'd assume we bring in Cesar Azpilicueta as he's another young spaniard who would idolize Pep. The real challenge then becomes replicating the Barca midfield. I personally would like to see Mata deployed in an advanced position in the middle. We should then throw our summer budget at Barca in an attempt to prize away Thiago who can operate along side him similar to how they did for the Spanish U-21's. I know we were linked in the past and I know he signed a new deal, but he is just fantastic. Why would he leave? I feel there are a multitude of reasons. One, he knows Pep and his system. Two, Money. Three, he's trapped behind Xavi, Iniesta, and Fabregas at Barca where as he could be a star at Chelsea. Fourth, joining Chelsea would allow him to link up with 4 other Spanish teamates, 3 of whom he's played with in the Spanish youth teams. And finally we're European Champions! You may be concerned about our defence, but this is the real catch. As our holding midfielder, I suggest none other than our own David Luiz.. His distribution is great. His vision and ability to intercept passes is immaculate and it would give him a chance to join the attack more. I think he would be the best holding mid in the premier league right now. With Pep at the helm, I would have great hope for our youngsters coming through and getting playing time all while having the outstanding Ramires, Lampard, and Ivanovic as huge difference makers who will play as super subs or rotationally in a number of different ways. Thanks for reading, sorry it was so long and I apologize if this has been covered before. (I've thought about it a lot as im sure you all have too.)
