This time last season, it's a no brainer. Diego all the way. Goals, movement, confidence and a streak of nastiness that ensured no defender had an easy game. Now, this season, the choice is tougher. At least Fleck and Sutton, limited skill and all, tried hard every game. They came off the field drenched in sweat. Costa does not move; does not try and to be honest it is not clear if he cares or not. He does not want to score, or it seems that way.

Just look at yesterday against Maccabi - there was nothing on show for the £24 odd million spent; and did you see his face when Oscar and Willian scored; it looks like he was pissed off with them for having the audacity to do, what he can no longer do. Jose had every right to scream at Costa at half-time for his lack of anticipation. The number of times in the last few games when Hazard or Willian has crossed the ball into the danger zone, just waiting for a hungry striker to pounce on it  for a tap in; for us to look at the pitch and say, ' where the hell is Costa?' Somewhere out of the action, out of position and hopefully soon out of the team and ultimately out of the club.

Lack of skill, we can deal with - see the afore-mentioned Dave Mitchell, Alan Mayes, Steve Finnieston, - the list is endless; but if there is a will to try, a will to fight for the ball, a will to get in the right position - even if ultimately they miss, I will take that every day of the week, instead of watching Costa, stroll about the field, doing nothing and achieving nothing.

When Ben Haim was sent off, I laughed, because I wanted to kick Costa myself, and for stretches of that game it was not clear which team was down to 10 men; well that's because when Costa is on the field, it is like playing with 10 men anyway. Give me Remy or someone. Hey, what about this young kid knocking them over in the Dutch league - oh yes, Solanke is his name; wish we had someone like him!

Enough is enough. This weekend, we will get to see first hand in Harry Kane, what a center forward should be. Let's hope that on our side, we have someone fired up and ready to kick the ball and not the opponents and to make runs and show a willingness to put the team before personal glory. We desperately need to keep the momentum going and garner three more points; but will it be with the new Dave Mitchell, or the old Diego Costa?

  1. Just anyone who take;s Pride;in putting on the shirt..I like many find it strange,that yet again we are addressing our Lack of Srikers.this has been a problem/position for years now,and it,s still far from sorted,,DC,can,t just be a one/season/wonder,,he had a few years at AM,to prove how good he is,,and it,s why we brought him...so something else going on here,,,which leaves us with a big hole to fill..the media again,putting us in for all/sundry,,even Adebayor can you believe,if it had been J,Defoe,I might have been happier..Come on Chelsea get this position sorted for the next few/years,,,if DC,wants out get rid,asap....

    1. Once more I find I am in agreement with you, Chelsea has been the club where strikers come to lose their goal scoring ability. So Drogba was a notable exception and DC survived a season, but no long term staying power. Just what do we do to them? Look how Lukaku has thrived since leaving. If I was a top striker I would stay away from Chelsea! Surely we can grow our own and not continue to ignore our youngsters.
