    Today Jose Mourinho has said that he wants 21 outfield players. Assuming Petr Cech and Cudicini will be the goalies, who will these 21 be?...



    Likely To Leave

    Neil Sullivan
    Winston Bogarde
    Celestine Babayaro
    Mario Melchiot
    Marcel Desailly
    Claude Makelele
    Mario Stanic
    Juan Sebastian Veron
    Emmanuel Petit
    Alexei Smertin
    Jesper Gronkjaer
    Boudjeuwin Zenden
    Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

    TOTAL = 12

    [Possible Loan / Reserve Team
    Alexis Nicolas
    Filipe Oliveira
    Robert Huth
    Alexei Smertin

    Coming (Likely/Possibles)

    Paulo Ferreira
    Roberto Carlos
    Jorge Andrade
    Costinha
    Joaquin
    Arjen Robben (Already Signed)
    David Trezequet
    Fernando Morientes

    TOTAL = 7

    TOTAL Staying + Coming = 19 !?

    ________________

    COuld be a strange ass looking team next season. The Mail reckon a 4-3-2-1 is likely with the following players:

    Cech

    Ferreira
    Terry
    Andrade
    Bridge

    Costinha
    Lampard
    Robben

    Morientes
    Joaquin

    Trezequet

    Slightly worrying. The main worry is that players such as Scott Parker, Eidur Gudjohnsen and Wayne Bridge may all almost be forgotten amidst the young Europeans.
    Who knows? It will definately be an interesting summer.

  3. Be a very interesting summer at Chelsea. Jose will see them alright though, don't worry about that.

    I have heard down the grapevine that he's not a Gallas fan at all though.

    To be honest Gallas isn't going to be missed too much. He is the fastest player Chelsea have, and a solid defender but he is a complete muppet with the ball and he shouldn't be allowed into the opponent's box. Should just have JT on his own in the box for corners, goal every time.
     
  5. Chelsea's players are in for a hard pre season.

    Jose is going to flog them to whip them into shape.

    Yup. First pre season training day is the day after Euro 2004 ends. that will be fun for everyone. I suspect he will pick the side purely based on what he sees at the trials as well, not past form.

    Paulo Ferreira has confiremed he is coming to Chelsea for £13 million and Mario Muppet Melchiot has confirmed that he is going. Two good bits of news.

    At least Mourinho is going to have a major say in new signings unlike Claudio so that's something at least.

    yup. Mourinho ain't going to take any bullshit from Abramovich. He'll probably get sacked if he doesnt' want some of Abramovich's players which he has seen on TV and thought, 'mmm he's good, i want him'.
     
  10. In that case, I hope Jose gets sacked this week.

    You can have Benitez. [​IMG]
     
  11. How far have things come on since this???
