I agree with you excalibur - 25/04/2004 06:10:26 PM

So I’ll stick up for my side.

Chelsea have spent, approximately, £125 Million on around 12 new players.

Glen Johnson: £6m

Wayne Bridge: £7m

Damien Duff: £17m

Geremi: £7m

Juan Sebastian Veron: £15m

Joe Cole: £6.6m

Adrian Mutu £15.8m

Alexei Smertin: £3.45m

Hernan Crespo: £16.8m

Neil Sullivan: £500,000

Claude Makelele: £16m

Scott Parker: £10m

Total to date: £121 million.

However, what everyone seems to forget is that Mancheser United spent simply *ridiculous* amounts of money on Veron (£28.1m), Van Nistelroy (£19m), Rio Ferdinand (£30) and Ronaldo (£12.24m).

I mean, that’s £89.34 m on just 4 players.

I think you have made some excellent purchases with the exception of Makelele who you paid way over the odds for. Not only that but you have bought a lot of English / home based players. All credit to Chelsea for that.

Have you heard all the latest talk of Chelsea bidding for Beckham and Ronaldo? That ain't gonna' be cheap...

I have. It could be a very good purchase though. Particularly Ronaldo - you seem to lack a striker to regularly put the ball in the back of the net.

Word on Lampard; he's our best player. In fact, I consider our "main" players to be Lampard and Terry - both English.

I completely agree. Lampard has been excellent all season. Not to mention Terry. Wayne Bridge has come on leaps and bounds too.
