This is the wrong way approach Chelsea has taken toward these players. Even, if they are deemed surplus to the squard, they should let go on a cut price, instill of sending them to the youth team. This is highly disrespectful. I fully understand and see the trench Chelsea is taken for the future, but you don't just banished you senior automatically at the expense of the new and young players you are bringing in. At least, let's them stay for this season, then next year, you let them go. That would show respect and honour for the sevices they have given to the club over the years. Roberto Di Matteo has to be very careful of the decision he continues to take. Essien is out on loan; Meirelles is sold out to a Turkish club; now, it's Florent and Paulo. I am pretty sure he will do the same to Lampard, Terry, Cole, and Halarios. They Champions League is coming, and these guys understand what is takes to play in such league. The new players must sit or be blended with few of the senior players whenever bigger team like ManUtd, City, Juva, Shatax, etc are coming to the Bridge.
