Possible debate, ed001 id like your and other eds' opinions. 01 said that Sarri likes a big target man, was wondering what sort striker you think Chelsea need, we have a target man in Giroud, who links up play but doesn't score enough, morata. I don't know what sort striker he is anymore, at Napoli he had Insigne Mertens and callerjon, and preciously Higuaín who is your number 9, links and gets in box, I wasn't sure what path he would go down if he would like hazard and 2 wide forwards to interchange like last season or and icardi / immobile who come alive around 18 yard but won't be holding ball up and getting others to build up with them, or Mitrovic who would hold ball up then try get into the area who could come on leaps and bounds like Higuaín did, I like the icardi immobile types but if we have got the creative players they could go without any service and go missing,

{Ed001's Note - Sarri had those players but the one he went out and bought was Milik, but he had injury problems which kept him out. So that is the kind of player you have to look at, big but mobile, like a Dzeko type of player.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Nice one cheers ed, surprising as the 3 small quick technical players done so well under him. As long as we get the right, right forward, who would you thinks best suited.

{Ed001's Note - I know, I don't understand some of Sarri's thinking, but his ideas do seem to work. Personally I think the more fluid, smaller forward is better suited, but I would have to say someone like Mitrovic would suit his chosen system well.}

Any chance of Lewandowski actually moving on this summer Ed? He has talked a lot about leaving before.

{Ed001's Note - always a chance as Bayern need a rebuild and will likely have to sacrifice some players to do so.}

Hi Ed001; thinking the same thing about Mitrovic. He can be a good player in a team like Chelsea- he can hold up play very well and bring others into play, very good aerially, can score goals if you give him the supply.

{Ed001's Note - still young enough to improve as well.}

What about that Polish striker from Genoa? Still has an incredible goals per game ratio playing for mid-table (relegation) team in Italy.

{Ed001's Note - I have only seen highlights of him, so no idea if he is actually any good or just on a hot streak of luck.}

Yea Ed001; you seem to know and analyse Chelsea very well. Cheers and have a good day.

{Ed001's Note - thank you mate. I appreciate that.}

We were following Mitrovic before he came to Newcastle - why didn't we buy him then at a fraction of the price that we would have to pay now!?
