Now that Mourinho is 100% confirmed I honestly think we'll sign Eto'o. Jose has had a hard-on for Eto'o for two years.

Eto'o will lead the attack with either of RQ/Hleb behind him and Zlatan as a second forward.

Queresma - Ibrahimovic
Eto'o​

Or

Hleb - Ibrahimovic
Eto'o​

Thoughts?

IMO either one would quite possibly be the best attacking trident in the world.

He always makes a point of avoiding Prima Donna type players.

If anything either Drogba is coming, or Mourinho will give Adriano a chance
to show him what he can do.

Furthermore, Mourinho is not a rigid manager and doesn’t have one particular
formation he favours. Chelsea played 4-3-3 and Porto was 4-4-2.

After assessing the squad, he will play whatever formation that suits the
team he will have at his disposal.

Balls,I think Mou will line up a duo of Drogba and Etoo with Ibrahimovic behind them.**** man,that would be some trio.The physicality,passing and shooting they would have is mind-fazing.

Honestly, it's Drogba or Eto'o...c'mon.

I'd rather see no forwards purchased, and Essien and Quaresma added. No more, no less.


Quaresma ---- Ibrahimovic
------Balotelli/Adriano

Yup, which is why an Eto'o - Ibrahimovic - Queresma trio IMO is so useful. Easily play a 4-3-3 with those players or simply drop into a 4-4-2 with Eto'o - Ibra upfront and Queresma on the wing.

Also, not sure why you think Mourinho would never sign Eto'o considering Eto'o had been linked to Mourinho in the past and he wanted him at Chelsea.

either eto or drogba.

Whoever said we dont need FW are kiddin' themselves. Cruz and crespo are done, as simple as that. Ibra can't go on the entire season by himself and Adriano is 50-50. We dont know if he can be back as before but even if he could, he might collapse in midseason.

Balotelli should play a major role as well. But to rely solely on ibra adri and balo for 60+ games a season is ridiculous. A fourth Striker or FW is needed and everyone should be in rotation with ibra playing the majority of the games and balo, adri splitting the rest

we look horrendous everytime ibra has a dip in his game or he's out for an injury.

Hleb has agreed terms with Barcelona

as for Eto'o

surely Mourinho will take Drogba in preference

and I see ACM are the favourites to sign Drogba now according to goal.com

there is about a 1% chance of Drogba choosing ACM if it comes down to a choice between them and us

You pick the strangest arguments at times! :neutral:

Drogba was a model professional under Mourinho in Chelsea, in terms
of his commitment, work rate etc... he gave it his all week in and
week out in a league that’s renowned for its physical play.

In the months since Jose was sacked, the relationship between club
and player has not been the same, nevertheless he still gave it his
all and took them to a CL final.

I don’t know what budget Inter has for the summer, but I'm pretty
certain a striker wont be the first thing on Jose's mind.

Red said in another thread, that Mourinho wont be able to help
Adriano rediscover his old form, well if Mourinho (One of the best
if not the best man manager/motivator around) cant, then this
means you think Adriano is finished as a top level footballer.

Since no one can help him. :neutral:

Considering how much his contract is worth, mancio's financial
compensation, the acquisition of Quaresma and another midfielder
he might not have a huge budget to blow on Drogba or Eto'o in
the end, and I personally think he shouldn't.
