I promise to stay off football for a few days after this article. It is Chelsea’s turn today. Back in the day they were called them United Nations due to the amount of different Nationals they assembled.
They have had fine players in the past and these current crop have a long way to go. With the way football is going some clubs would probably not have future legends as players move from club to club before seeing half of their contracts through.
My best 10 players to have played for Chelsea are:
1. Frank Lampard (English)
2. Didier Drogba (Ivorian)
3. John Terry (English)
4. Gianfranco Zola (Italian)
5. Dennis Wise (English)
6. Claude Makelele (French)
7. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (Dutch)
8. Tore Andre Flo (Norwegian)
9. Michael Ballack (German)
10. Ricardo Carvalho (Portuguese)
Andre Flo makes the cut based on sentiments I can’t explain, lol.
