Andriy Shevchenko – should he stay or should he go?

73757653.jpgHe’s gone from the country’s most expensive signing to a misfiring misfit who’s struggling to command a transfer fee, but Andriy Shevchenko still has his admirers.
There’s been rumours that his former club and Ukrainian champions, Dynamo Kiev, want him to return home – as long as it’s on loan.
Dynamo president, Igor Surkis, made remarks reported on the club’s website.
“I’m ready to pay his salary instead of the Chelsea board but I’m not ready to reimburse 45 million dollars (£22.5million) to Abramovich for him,” he said.


It’s a similar stance taken by another of his more fondly remembered clubs, AC Milan, who were willing to take him back for a fraction of the fee they extorted from Chelsea.
We kept waiting for him to come good last season, but it never happened – so should Shevchenko be offered one more drink at the Last Chance Chelsea Saloon, or is it time to call last orders?

    Most strikers take a season to settle in, how do we know he wont do a Drogba and start smacking them in when/if he gets a game.
    Lets face it Chavski have not got an overdose of forwards have they?

  2. Flo says:

    I agree that we should probably see what one more season brings…but then I wouldn’t be heartbroken to see him move on either.
    You don’t miss what you’ve not had, and we’ve never really had the Shevchenko of old anyway.

  3. John says:

    Yes he’s been pretty transparent for his first session in what is the best league in the world. But I honestly think a fit Shevi with plenty more miles left on the clock firing on all cylinders would be will worth the wait. Right him off at your peril!!

    Paging Alexi Lalas… Alexi Lalas to the Head Office.

  5. Kate says:

    We should give him one more season at Chelsea. His last chance to prove that he really worths all the millions Chelsea paid for him.

  6. bdr says:

    Lalas is seconds from being fired. Or should be.
    But yes, LA seems inevitable, if not sooner than a pretty fast later.

  7. Mike says:

    Yes, Kate and Flo, one more season for Shevchenko to see what he can do….but what can he do if The Portuguese/”the special one” won’t play him….I’ll bet Mourinho will play him sparingly and not even give him a chance to really show what he can do!

  8. Mike says:

    Hey, Flo and Kate,one more year would be great for Shevchenko if only the “Special One ” would play him…the coach doesn’t like the player…it’s obvious.

    Let me just start by saying thats what Mourinho gets for being on Pizzaros and Kalous balls, horrible loss to a crappy team in Villa, what the hell did Drogba do? Mourinho needs to take his head out of his ass and play Shevchenko, hopefully this loss will bring him down to earth after Abromovich goes of at him a little bit, he sure didint look happy leaving the stadium before the game ended.
