This the best Chelsea team you ever seen ?
It's gotta be very close.
I think Fabregas and Diego Costa were obviously excellent buys this summer. It's a shame that someone as good as Fabregas had some of the prime years of his career in the shadow of Xavi and Iniesta as he would be the first player on the team sheet of most European clubs. I knew he was gonna be great and was very excited we signed him.
I was a bit more reserved about Costa - wasn't sure how he'd take to the prem etc but obviously after his first two or three games those concerns were completely forgotten.
Glad we got rid of Torres, who was given just far far far too long. Likewise Luiz isn't a Mourinho player and to get 50 mil for him was amazing.
I still follow Chelsea and love them and football but it's harder being in Asia with the timezone differences and never following anything in the media about teams and players to keep up the level of interest I had when I was in England.
My favourite Chelsea team will always be the team I went and watched week in week out when I was a season ticket holder. Desailly, Leboeuf, Le saux, Petrescu, Dennis Wise, Poyet, Zola, Flo etc etc. Loved those days and watching Zola was special.
