With the news that has broken the hearts of the West Brom fans this week is that their beloved “Fridge” will be returning back to the blues at end of the season. If you’re wondering who “Fridge” is well it’s Romelu Lukaku! The Belgian international revealed that although he’s loving his time with the baggies and relishing first team football he was eager to return to the Bridge! He also stated that he hope’s to be a legend at Chelsea. Did you know Lukaku has been a fan of CFC for a long while, he visited the Bridge with his school 2 years before putting pen to paper on his contract in 2011.
As many of you know he’s really hit the ground running this season bagging 9 goals and 2 assists to his name. His physical presence has been a big factor to West Brom’s menacing attacks, with him getting on the end of crosses being floated and drilled into the box! The young star has many attributes which really adds a threatening and physical edge to Steve Clarke’s dangerous attack. He has kept big name players such as Odemwinge,Long and Rosenberg out of the team and he has made 26apps in all this season.
So with Lukaku making a big impact at WBA and gaining premier league experience I turn your attention to next season. Having so far been a very disappointing season for us fans I have been looking at our chances of a successful season next year. With the Ba deal clinched early in January it was a real statement of intent by Chelsea showing Torres that he’s not going to have everything his own way. But yet again Torres play’s the majority of games under Rafa, with Ba beneath him in the pecking order. There were some reports that Rafa didn’t want Ba in the first place and he’s certainly not eager to play him. On a positive note Rafa will be gone in May and with wide spread reports linking The Special one back to the Bridge we might witness ” A new Chelsea”. Jose has always been a fan of a physical striker and he showed us the first glimpse’s of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba. So I was thinking to myself why not create a partnership between Lukaku and Ba?
Think about it. Our attack isn’t that threatening at the moment and Azpilicueta has revealed teams aren’t scared of us at the moment. I’m pretty sure there’s no way better to re-ignite that fear than to introduce a lethal partnership. Without a doubt it will strike fear into the hearts of the defenders and I’m sure it we will boost our whole squad with confidence (except for Fernando Torres). The service the two will be getting will be incredible! And with Jose leading the team imagine the impact it will have.
Combined the strikers have already netted 23 goals with half of the season still to go! So just imagine what it will be like with likes of Mata, Hazard, Moses, Oscar, Lampard and Luiz pumping ball’s up to them! Team’s will fear us once again and it will be very similar to the Drogba Anelka partnership which was a huge factor in Chelsea’s double wining campaign in 09/10 under Carlo!
Do let me know what you all think! KTBFFH!
