If Ballack Joins Chelsea? Who's Benched

if michael ballack should join chelsea next season. who sits on the bench.

lampard , makalele or essien or joe cole

or will mourinho bench robben on the wing. i think all this spontaenous buying of top quality players will destroy Chelsea's morale.

Talk of tropies and trophy wives!

Ballack is about to say" I do" and become a trophy wife at the end of the season.

Any way its fame he is out for cos in Bayern or Bundesliga we dont pay much attention to.

I dont care who will be benched even if its my only Didier so long as he will be in Chelsea and getting his huge cheque

No single player can dictate to Jose.

Did you remember a former Nigerian player called Friday Elaho?

@ Akolawole,

none of those players you mentioned is as accomplished or experienced as Ballack. It's like asking Zizou to play defensive midfield. He will play but be very unhappy and will not give you his best.

There is nothing like fancy, its about what the Coach wants. Lauren has never play as a defender before he joined Arsena, Essien is attacking midfielder at Lyon while Alan Smith is a Striker is formerly a Leeds Striker.

@NightRider

He's destroying Phillips career!

Did you know what you are talking about?

Its a norm that when you come to a star-studed team , you must perform.

Even if they give 10mins, he must prove himself first then goodies will follow.

I somehow doubt Ballack will fancy the idea of playing as Striker or support striker. He almost definitely feels the AM position is his.

Did you see the role Jose bringing Essien to now (just few minutea ago, match agaist Man City)? thats is, to tell you Cole is not gonna be benched, cant wait to see Lampard, Ballack and Essien in the mid-field, lets see who is gonna break that middle thru! buhhahaha! Love my Chelsea

ballack is an attacking midfielder, so i think the competition is between him, lampard and jole cole.

i see joe cole benched and thats sad cuz he's one of my best players at chelsea.

That's true Pie

But Ballack is flexible, can be used as Striker or supporting striker.

If Ballack moves to Chelsea, the Ideal thing would be to bench Lampard, seeing as they are both attacking midfeilders and Ballack is far better. Unless Jose decides to play the two attacking midfeilders with Maka or Essien as a holding midefilder, I see Lampard getting less playing time.

And by the way, a move to Barca would not be a step in the right direction, because I don't see who Barca will drop in the midfeild to accomodate him. He is a very good midfeilder, no doubt. But for his position, Barca have got Deco, Xavi, Motta and Van Bommel, who I think will be ahead of him in the pecking order.

It doen't help matters that he's not very flexible either.

@RichOlly

Which story?

Rumourrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Anybody that knows Chelsea very well will know that Frank Lampard will be the last player to leave Chelsea.

Do you know how much he earns in Chelsea?

Ballack on the wing? or as a striker?? men!! i tire for you oh!!!

from stories emanating from BBC, its like Lampard is on his way out which is where Ballack comes in. Its possible Frank moves to Barca. If he doesn't move, then its likely ageing Makelele suffers for it.

Who mentioned Mikel's name?? that boy needs flogging

He may not play in the midfield, he may bench Crespo or Didier.
