Why Do Chelsea Need to Spend?
Nicolas Anelka has left, Alex will leave and Paulo Ferreira, Florent Malouda and Salomon Kalou are on the outer looking in.
Assuming something catastrophic doesn't happen tonight against Manchester City, André Villas-Boas will still have a job and will (should) be given a chance to overhaul the squad in January.
Which Position Needs the Most Reinforcement?
David Luiz isn't good enough, and Branislav Ivanović is a better right back than centre back.
Plus, I would rather the Serbian play at right back than José Bosingwa.
Who Is a Realistic Buy?
Borussia Mönchengladbach's no-nonsense centre back, Dante.
He's a beast of a defender, he's going to come cheap, he's tailor made for the Premier League and he could motivate Luiz to become a better defender (I know I'm stretching a bit with this reason).
I envision Luiz as a defensive midfielder, because he lacks the positional sense to play at centre back.
