I want to know EPL and Chelsea fans thoughts. Also HERE (http://home.skysports.com/list.asp?hlid=388289&CPID=8&clid=8&lid=1490&title=Opta:+Would+Carlos+benefit+Blues?) are some quick statistics of last season comparing R.Carlos to Wayne Bridge and Del Horno

those stats rule... roberto carlos is insane.. haha, offiside 9 times?? :D

some managers shouldve put him as a striker :D
i think he would be doing good for chelsea if he join... del horno didnt really play well last season i guess neither did bridge

Anyone of that calibre will ofcourse benefit any team- there will be some benefits for sure but I am wondering if it's worth trading potential and many years of football ahead- for an experienced pretty much legend of the game whom is gradually rolling down from the crest of his career

Del Horno is better. Mourinho must learn how to use him.

Roberto Carlos is a very fun to watch player wich will be loved by fans, but he is not going to fit well in Mourinho 's defensive tactics. Chelsea has a more strict defense then Carlos is used to play and Ariel del Horno, is youger, more efficient in tacklings and still very good in playing offense.
Also the chemistry of the team is going to suffer, by bringing a star which depite it's heavy investments is still based on hard working players.
In my opinion the statistics prove that DelHorno is a better defender right now and has good enough offensive skills, to be a better choice then Carlos.

I dont know why people dont like Del Horno I think hes a terrific defender whether he doesnt score enough goals to Mourinho's liking is somthing else he needs to buy a better winger like Joaquin.

i suppose for a club like chelsea with practically infinite money, putting out a hefty salary for a couple of years for someone who only has 2-3 more years of play in him (but is better than the guys you currently have) can't really hurt.

Del Horno is a good defender bit still hasn't quite settled in. Not being able to communicate well with Terry does not help. He also squandered a few good chances and didn't get many chances to display his free kick skills.
I'd prefer to keep Del Horno and Bridge over Carlos, but if we go that way hopefully Del Horno will take some English lessons and fit in better next season.

i doubt its goals that jm is after from a lb...rumor has it that horny has a bad attitude in training and hasnt bothered to learn english...perhaps being a spanish international at a young age has made him a bit too content...
i would like to see horny get a second chance too, showed some great potential early in the season. just needs to learn to play with more control....and improve his positioning, seems too easy for wingers to get behind him.

If carlos is so good in attacking, why is he playing at left back?

He certainly would benefit Chelsea. The man is a legend and will make Chelsea stronger at the back. I would've thought that Chelsea would've gone for someone younger though, but Ashley Cole isn't available.
