I agree , too many good players are warming benches too often at Chelski, SWP, Malouda, Anelka, Shevchenko, Cudicini, Sidwell, Alex and Bridge. These players would be first team regulars in most other teams
I am sure they would. But then, if you need a squad big enough for sixty high pressure matches a season, injury cover, Africa tournament cover, and the rest, then you need so many good players that many of them won't always get in the team. Isn't this the curse of the biggest clubs?
It's not just Chelsea. Crouch can't get in the Liverpool team and you lot only turn up for one trophy a season.
