Romelu Lukaku and Demba Ba


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!

    It’s a possibility, but I can’t see how you can fit Lukaku, Ba and Mazacar into the same team. Maybe if Oscar is converted to a DLP it could work but I still just want Neymar. A pivot of Oscar and Luiz, Neymar left, Hazard central, Mata right and THE KRAKEN up front…

    after drogba left, i really hope torres could be the spearhead of our team. but once again he disappointed me. so with ba on our side and lukaku is going back i really hope both of them to be our main spearhead.

    I think that combination wil work,torres out

  4. Vaibhav Kumble says

    How many goals and assists does Torres have this season?? More than Lukaku m sure. And more assists than Ba m sure. So u see he gives a something way different than Ba and Lukaku. M not degrading our other strikers but degrading Torres is stupid.

    1. drogba says

      y cuantos minutos no lleva torres? muchos y solo hace algo cuando el equipo golea

  5. Isaac says

    I think that Torres deserves a site in Chelsea’s atack he’s scoring and assisting as Drogba said: Fernando Torres is the future of Chelsea

    You delivered a good article but at the end, you showed that hatred. You virtually mentioned all the Chelsea squad, you even added a defender without pointing Mikel. Look at what he is doing in AFCON, Look at the way he humiliated Yaya Toure and Sissoko at the heart of midfield, look at all his assists in that tournament. Since January he left, how have the defence looked like? How many matches has Chelsea won? How many goals has Chelsea conceived? Check the statistics. You in particular has never writing anything good about him. Any way, i never liked the new contract he extended with Chelsea because you (fans) hate him.

    1. Vaibhav Kumble says

      Good point. Mikel has not been consistent but he is highly under rated.

    Fernando may not be contributing as much to the team as most Chelsea supporters would have liked him to but you can’t say he hasn’t tried. 50 mil was spent on the spaniard so I get why most are stating to lose patience and why some have jus given up on Fernando. But I’ve come to wonder if the up front role is really where he belongs now, how would he cope if he was converted to a winger of some sort or maybe switch his trade to be the supporting striker.. Would he not be more of a threat there where the attention would be off him and he’ll be allowed to roam… If he adopted the philosophy of a false #9 but wit a true #9 as Demba to be the spearhead… This is jus my opinion though and if push comes to shove I’m all in with el Nino being put on the first bus out of chelsea… On another topic, the special/the only one would be great to have back but Learnado, director at PSG, is also a great manager and has hinted he wants to lead a team in the Premier League I’m sure he’d be great at chelsea..

      this is ridiculous im sorry to say..just because torres has assists this season, it doesnt mean he can play as a false9..have u forgotten he cant dribble and loses the ball most of the time

    2. kaycee says

      nice gesture,think he wuld fit in as a right winger.

  8. Gideon Anyona says

    Time has come to call a spade a spade and not a Big spoon!Torres in front,he has failed and Ba should take the mantle.I think Rafa thinks he secure his contract by playing Torres regularly but to remind him,thats not soccer,soccer is about goals thats why fans miss DMT and the special one,because according to them only the best will take the mantle.
