It has been a strange week for Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern who on Monday had to put up with taunts from Arsenal fans who were of course celebrating the capture of Petr Cech from the Blues.
In what is undoubtedly a fantastic capture for Arsene Wenger and the Gunners, this type of signing could push Chelsea’s London rivals a lot closer to them by the time the end of the 2015/16 campaign comes around.
That said, a few days have passed and Blues fans will now have to grow used to seeing their now former goalkeeper adorn red instead of blue and our Chelsea fanatics are willing the signing of Stoke City’s Asmir Begovic on to lessen the pain somewhat.
The Potters’ Bosnian international stopper is expected to be trading the Britannia Stadium for Stamford Bridge and all of our Chelsea regulars are in agreement that he is a fine number two to have at Jose Mourinho’s disposal.
Some of our Chelsea supporting punters are boldly claiming they’re not so upset at Cech moving at all, simply born out of the fact that they boast arguably the best goalkeeper in world football right now, Manuel Neuer aside in Thibaut Courtois.
The Belgian international took to his first season in English football last term like a duck to water and there is no doubt that he will continue to impress for however long Chelsea wish to keep him in West London.
But what about the rest of Jose Mourinho’s starting eleven that last year looked something near perfection?
We’ve asked our Chelsea regulars to devise a dream starting eleven that they could field next season. Do you agree with their choices?
