He'd get more game time, but I can't imagine Chelsea wanting rid of him, because, to use the cliche, he's a "super-sub". He always help them from coming off the bench, never complains either. But say he was at a mid-table team I can imagine him being average. He's not really a profilic goalscorer, but he's also not a midfielder, so I don't imagine a mid table team would want him. I think he fits in perfectly at Chelsea as he can come off the bench for the last 20, do something special, but positional sense doesnt really matter.collin wrote:honestly i think he would do better at another club, i can see him being a good player at a mid-table english premiere league team, maybe Bolton, Blackburn, or Newcastle There is to much competition to get into chelsea starting 11
I have to disagree with this, even though I only see highlights of EPL teams play. I think Kalou is a deadly finisher, and from what I've seen can definitely get past a man, and has great speed. Correct me if I'm wrong, becasue again I only get to see highlight reels, but thats my opinion.even though he's not the fastest, the best dribbler, the most clinical finisher
Kalou is indeed fast i dont know so many people write him off as having no speed , he has decent pace and speed but the major factor that lets kalou down is his final ball or finshing if he could work hard on them and improve them then he can surely be making his way in Chelseas XI , im sure he'll play an important role next season because he'll play more games due to the fact that drogba is 33 anelka is 30 something and then you have Torres and Sturridge the other 2 strikers.desire10 wrote:I have to disagree with this, even though I only see highlights of EPL teams play.

What do you mean by this? I don't watch Barcelona enough to understand. Explain?Met wrote:I think he should have his own competition and stick him there every game like Pinto for Barcelona. And if he plays well there, give him the next game in EPL.
I'm a SAFC fan and that would be extremely delicious! What I meant was, the reason i'm such a fan is because he does it with relatively little time, he always does the job with 10-20 minutes to go, and I think he relicishous that role, he likes coming off the bench when Chelsea are piling on the pressure on the opposite team, when all the play is in the opposite half, and he can roam around and do a bit of magic, however at a team like Sunderland or Blackburn I can imagine him being average, because clubs will either expect him to score every game (he does miss a lot of easy chances) or as a midfielder expect him to be box to box, which i'm not sure he would enjoy. He is brilliant, but like you Desire said, he has great chemistry with Drogba, and sort of relies on him. If he was at a worse team, and he was the main man, i'm not sure if it would work. I dunno.i don't know how you guys can say he wouldnt do that good at a mid-table team. Look at Sturridge and Wellbeck they are bothing doing good from what i saw. By the way he would do good at Sunderland, Gyan, Kalou, Wellbeck up top that is dangerous!

Haha, that Pinto started and played every copa del rey game, that being "his own competition", and he suggests that Kalou be given the same treatment, and if he plays well in the fa/carling cup start him on the next premier league match. thats a good idea...
i think kalou is a super-sub.. he's deadly, quick, fast and strong, and as minutes pass and stamina decreases his quickness and acceleration becomes a deciding factor for other teams that have worn down after chasing players for 70 minutes or more.. he's exellent when defenders are tired, to play him on the right side have him cut and shots, his acceleration and power make him real deadly...
in fifa, when i use chelsea he always changes the game, just running with the ball and crossing it virtually uncatchable and really skilled, just like in real life..
