    Schvchenko keen to come to England

    Wiltord was not a flop. He bagged 50+ goals for us while playing out of position. I still see him in the French league occasionally and he can still hit the ball hard and on target from outside the box. The only reason Shev is presumably coming to the EPL is for a big pay day. When you think of the ridiculous salary offered to Ballack; then I guess everyone wants a slice of the cake. As usual this is the same player who not too long ago said he did want to leave Milan! Arsenal would do well to try to lure a gritty player like Nolan and the bloke who plays on the left wing for Valencia rather than splurging on Shev-realistically I do not think we can afford him anyway. Crespo flopped because he never had the pace to cope in the EPL; but Shev is a different player. He will bag a hatful if he plays for Chelsea. And this cannot be good for us! Drogba was quite simply not worth the price Chelsea paid for him. That's why there was so much expectation placed on him. When you consider that Chelsea paid about 50 million quid to get Essien and Drogba from the French league; I guess there is only one winner in both these trades.
