A few days ago, I made out a right-back poll where I showed some stats about four players that had been linked with Chelsea; and revealed that this was going to be a funny poll result; and it indeed is. You can find the results after the jump.
So let's start. Here are the results:
Well. It's obvious Player 4 is the best pick. He looked defensively sound, and was decent in attack. Player 3 was preferred more for better attack. Both are decent; but Player 4 looked the real deal. Now to reveal the names :
Ivanovic? Isn't he at Chelsea. Yes he is. So most people prefer Ivanovic; and I think that's proof enough that whoever is our right-back should be a back-up rightback mostly, as Ivanovic looks the best there is. That; and the fact I was liking to troll you people. However, I think ending this here is purely wrong. So, after Ivanovic, it looks like Maicon is the best preferred, but I would like a second poll on this. My basis of the earlier post was too prove that Ivanovic is a first-teamer. His attacking statistics were also a little flawed because he played as a centre-back. However, I have replaced Ivanovic with Jose Bosingwa now as a bench-mark and seeing from the stats below, Our Bossy isn't bad according to the stats. Over to the defensive statistics now :
Now to the attacking statistics :
What it shows is stats can only take you so far. However, I am asking in the poll below on who would you prefer at right-back out of these three. I apologise for not getting Gregory Van Der Wiel's stats; but there isn't much about the Eredivisie in terms of good stats. For now I am going to link you with a few articles to help in your choice; namely Kevin's article on what Chelsea need in a Right-back, Karan's great article on rightbacks (we weren't linked much with Maicon or Debuchy back then), Stephen's article on Cesar and Stephen's article on Maicon. I couldn't find anything on Debuchy at WAGNH but since he was least voted; I don't think anything on him is much needed. Keeping all the stats; the articles and the benchmark Bossy set in mind, vote in the poll below.
EDIT : Cesar leading strangely, still 6 days to go. Cast the votes in.
