Chelsea in a recall?

I read Chelsea were thinking of bringing back Hernan Crespo. That would be a mistake.

To begin with, the club dumped Crespo off in pre-season after a few workouts. Generally, with that kind of signal, a player doesn’t come back. Crespo knows that. I know that. Chelsea know that.

Chelsea can’t seem to buy a striker they really want. They are obsessed with a superstar and are ignoring the bidding on players like Benjani from Auxerre in France, Robinho, and a host of other supertalent-yet-not-superstar strikers. They have a championship in hand and money and a healthy dose of confidence. So why not go galactico?

Problem is nobody wants to do a deal. And Kezman looks to be leaving for Atletico Madrid.

So now Chelsea are pondering whether to bring back Crespo. The Crespo-Kakha Kaladze switch failed to materialize and Chelsea have now bought at Kaladze’s position in Athletic Bilbao left back Asier del Horno.

Second, Crespo wants to stay in Milan. Milan know that. I know that. Chelsea know that.

Chelsea should take a risk and buy someone else, not bring back Crespo. Anything can happen, but the chances are it would end a train wreck.

When a player is dumped off (and Crespo deserved it) they should not come back. Its bad business, like bringing back an employee that is not up to the job because another employee quit. You know you’re not wanted, you’re just filling a gap -so you work that way.

I really think Chelsea won't go far wrong from bringing Owen to the Bridge. I would say quite a natural swap of Kezman

Michael Owen would be great.
