I don't think it's an arrogance at all, More surprising that Chelsea have spent £63m on Cucurella, They bought Chilwell for around the £50m mark too. It's funny though because when we do it we are ruining football and it shouldn't be allowed happen, When Chelsea do it "It's good business".I thing there is a bit of arrogance in some of our fans reactions to Chelsea's acquisitions. There is nothing scattergun about what they are doing. Chelsea, like any top club should have it's sights set in winning the league. And to that effect, doing whatever is needed to bridge the perceived gap between them and those ahead of the.. which in this case is City and Pool.
The plan is to upgrade weak positions. And that can't be that hard. Seeing as they have weaknesses all over. Forward who don't score, wingers who aren't effective. Aging CMs and Departed defenders.
It is no surprise they are making lots of additions
Sterling upgrades their winger position. Ziyech, Pulicic, and Werner. So it's a no brainer.
Koulibally is an upgrade on anyone they had. Not to mention the lost 3 CBs and are down to a 37 year old as the only true CB.
Cucurella is an upgrade on Chilwell (perhaps) and definitely an upgrade on Alonzo... Who by the way is trying to leave.
DeJong and Aubamayeng will be upgrades on Werner and Jorghino. And Fifana simply replaces Christiansen.
They are gunning for us. And their best chance of success involves retooling the squad. So far they seem to be buying players everyone rates.
What's not to like?
If Abramovic was in charge It's a given that that identify 3 or 4 players in a window and go out and get them and get it done early never any fucking about.
This new owener has come on and they are making bids for literally anybody, Kimpembe, Kounde, Raphina, Ake ect It seems like the time Sheikh had just taken over and we were bidding for everyone to make a statement doesn't matter who we get as long as we sign players. Chelsea should be long long past that stage.
