EL NINO#9i think this might be the next season.s chelsea team.i think it will be the team to beat.i also know that their isnt really a defensive mid but i think lampard can very much play that role.also with new signings hazard and marin and hulk closing in i think chelsea will come out in full force next year to win back the champions league and may even win the premier league.what do you guys think?and please try to 'nice' when comment because im new to the football world.
EL NINO#9also this team will be a very fast paced team now that these players are in.
meteormakerWill still play park the bus against Barca. :coffee:
Walters_14_MUFCI'm a Man Utd fan and I doubt that will be the starting line-up. Hazard's already stressed that wherever he goes he wants to play in the number 10 role, just behind the striker.
Thats a good line-up and I can expect Chelsea to be challenging for all of the major tournaments next season.
EL NINO#9@walter_14_mufc hazard did say that but where he wants to play will keep key players on the bench.for example take a look at your line up. no lampard and no place for our possible signing of hulk.
EL NINO#9@meteormaker that was so funny i forgot to laugh!
chicarooneyGood team. Chelsea could win the Premier League next season but I don't think Hulk will sign, too expensive.
chicarooneyI think your team will be this
Ivanovic Cahill Terry Cole
Hazard Mata Marin
Subsitutes- Hilario Luiz Mikel Merieles Chaboalah McEachren Romeu
EL NINO#9thats actually a better side @chicharooney with lampard in and thanks for being a sport because i know your a manchester fan and saying chelsea can win takes true sportsmanship and considering hulk heres a link that makes me believe whether signings may be true to clubs http://www.footballtransferleague.co.uk/football_club.aspx?football_club=Chelsea
chicarooney@EL NINO9 Thanks for the link. :D
chicarooneyI still think your team is better because you have Hulk, i've got Marin.
EL NINO#9your welcome @chicharooney can u give me a feedback on the link also?that would be great :D
EL NINO#9@chicharooney and maybe my team is better but as i said im new to football and i have never seen marin play and hulk i only saw 3 games with him.
chicarooneyI enjoyed reading that, I read Chelsea's rumours and Manchester United's rumours and I was suprised when I seen Cristiano Ronaldo was linked to Chelsea and Manchester United. Once again thanks for the link. By the way Marin is a very talented player great dribbler great crosser great at shooting because I watch alot of German football.
EL NINO#9thanks man and yes i was shocked to and i to enjoy that site alot and your welcome.and he is?well i wouldnt know ive only seen the bayern teams play.
EL NINO#9and btw i think your formations are better as they are 4-2-3-1 and mines is more of a 4-3-3 but id like to see chelsea change their formation to this.
david1993i think chelsea will use the 4-2-3-1 formation as this formation will benefit the huge tacking talents of chelsea.
when torres was on form at Liverpool they used the system 4-2-3-1 and with worked. if Chelsea use this formation ti will benefit Chelsea and torres
Chelsea also needs new right back they should buy gregory van der wiel
my Chelsea team in the system the 3 attacking players will probably swap and given free roles
gregory van der wiel Cahill/luis terry/lusi cole
Mata Hazard Hulk/Marin
EL NINO#9@david1993 cool formation,i really like it but van der wiel?i heard he is not that good as he seem.
nomer_9--- --- --- --- Cech --- --- --- ---
-Ivanovic - Terry - Luiz - Cole-
--- --- Meireles - Lampard --- ---
--- Hulk --- Hazard --- Mata ---
--- --- --- --- Torres --- --- --- --- ---
But if we take DM (ex. M'villa) he should replace Meireles :)
EL NINO#9@nomer_9 another good team but where will Marin fit in?
Blue - 1st XI
White - 2nd XI
Other squad options - Hilario, Hutchinson, Lampard, Meireles, Bamford, MacEchran
Sell: Malouda, Essien, Turnbull, Bosingwa, Ferreira.
Loan out: Courtois, Blackman, Lukaku, Kalas, Bruma, Davila, PVA and Kakuta
While Srna and Modric may not be signed these are the types of players Chelsea need. An aggressive RB and a DLP.
EL NINO#9@gk awesome teams but i would like to see lampard in that squad.
G.K.'Other squad options - Hilario, Hutchinson, Lampard, Meireles, Bamford, MacEchran'
Lampard needs to be phased out in this season.
EL NINO#9yeah i saw that but i think lampard is the best player on chelsea and he needs to be introduce
G.K.Mata and Ramires are both a cut above Lampard.
Lampard is also 33. No room for sentimentality.
JimmyGuitaristLets face it, Chelsea are always gonna be this.
EL NINO#9ahaha @jimmyguitarist you should stick with playing your guitar instead.
BartyBoyI think this is a viable alternative
I know SAF at MU said he was always fond of utilizing 'a passer and a runner' in midfield. It then occured to me that by using this philosophy, whilst employing a 4-3-3 (like Barca's) where you essentially have three diamonds of players, a defensive diamond, midfield and attacking diamond. Luiz and Hazard being the players that are the links between the diamonds. With all that in mind, what do you guys think of this formation in action?
The idea is you can bring out the best in Luiz, by letting him move forwards (Although I'd love to see Romeu grow into the Makalelee role) and you can allow Hazard to play in the hole, Marin out on the left wing and Hulk on the right, all where they are comfortable. Mata is sweet with his passing and movement, so he would compliment the 'runner' Ramires in midfield. He could essentially grow into our Snieider, making those killig passes forward from deep in midfield.
Would love to hear others opinions. Very excited about the new lineup and actually, despite the talk of Hazard and Hulk, and most excited about Marin.
G.K.Not enough defensive prescence in midfield.
BartyBoyThat is what I feared. How would you tweak it to make it work? Maybe replace Mata with Romeu? Or is the problem that there is three attacking players + hazard?
EL NINO#9what about lampard,i know hes old but hes the everything in chelsea,he can play anywhere and he did have the most goals for us last season although that would change.torres this year.
BartyBoyMy hope is that we can transform Lampard into a venturous DMF - very similar to how we used Ballack before he left the club. I always remember being so relieved to see him in that position rather than Mikel as with Ballack we seemed to have that extra attacking edge on the field yet he was still very positionally aware. If Lampard becomes that kind of player then you could remove mata from the above diagram and replace with Lamps.
EL NINO#9maybe but i would like to see mata and lampard and ramires on the field as my 11 said but awesome team though
BartyBoyI noticed in your original diagram you had Hazard on the right and Hulk on the left rotating with Marin. If that works, then I think your team is the answer!
EL NINO#9ahaha it might be,i think it wil be productive for us.
BartyBoyHere's to a great season. I'm looking forward to our team locking horns with City.
chicarooneyHulk, Marin, De Bruyne and Hazard have already signed for Chelsea and it's only been open for 5 days. Chelsea have such a chance to win the league next season.
EL NINO#9@bartyboy guessing your a chelsea fan,cheers.
EL NINO#9@chicharooney thanks,i do believe that we are gonna win alot of trophies next year to.
david1993@BartyBoy are you saying lampard to play instead of mata?
at the moment Mata is a better player than Hulk, Marin and hazard
mata had a excellent season.i dont think Chelsea will drop him and hope they dont
EL NINO#9@david1993 completely agreeing with that statement ,the spanish international was chelsea player of the year and he has the quality and experience to get a start rather than hazard,hulk and marin.i think my formation shown above will be the dominant chelsea team.
david1993Juan Mata is outstanding player i have always liked him from his days at Valencia, and even at chelsea even though i was quite disappointed when he joined chelsea
real madrid lost out on mata leaving go at when they had him in their academy
BartyBoyI agree with both of you, that was a silly suggestion on my part. I also agree that @EL NINO's team at the top is the most likely team.
EL NINO#9@david1993 yes i always loved mata and @bartyboy it wasnt silly it was an opinion and thanks i really feel chelsea can utilize this team. #ktbffh
chicarooney@EL NINO Not a bad prediction for the team so far!!! :D
EL NINO#9@chicarooney,thanks! :D and new additions oscar can fit in,but where in my lineup?
