[quote]Costa, Torres, and Lukaku[/quote]
Hopefully we stick with this and make them fight for their place. Won't be hard beating out Torres but at least it wouldn't be giving Lukaku regular playing time without proving it in training. And if there is injury we aren't totally screwed. ...

Anyone who says he isn't having a great world cup is correct and shouldn't be ridiculed.

If I'm being honest I can't be too confident. But, the excitement of this group is through the roof. I remember how improbable the results felt in 2002 and think this year could be even better. So if we do go and play well and get the results it will be badass from a fan perspective....

| Soccer Board|| re: Yes Hazard really said it - nickhole5 on 5/1/14 at 8:59 am|
I’m talking about the tactics not how great some Real Madrid players are. If Chelsea had 31% of the ball, scored 2 set piece goals and 2 on a ruthless counter all the talk about be about parking the bus. But, the reality is their strategy vs Bayern was no different than Chelsea when they defend firs...

Why is it when Real Madrid play defensive/counter attacking football against Bayern it's brilliant but anytime Chelsea are involved we have to talk about a bus and in Brendan Rodger's case 2 buses?...
| Soccer Board|| re: Chelsea 2013/14 Season Long Thread - nickhole5 on 3/17/14 at 5:12 pm|
I guess it would come down to what Lukaku wanted. I would try to use him a lot and feature a super star. Most of the top teams have multiple strikers and are able to keep both relatively happy (United, Liverpool, City). Now running the 4-2-3-1 would make that tough but there has to be a way to give ...
| Soccer Board|| re: Chelsea 2013/14 Season Long Thread - nickhole5 on 3/17/14 at 1:48 pm|
While Lukaku is better than the options we have now I don't think he can be counted on to be the ruthless world class striker Chelsea wants. So I say go big for someone I'm just not sure who is a realistic option....

Greene will have the better legacy because of a SEC title and bringing a new level of success to UGA. I think Murray is a better QB and as previously mentioned would have an SEC title (or more) if he had better defenses.
