I was chatting to a Chelsea fan and this is his verdict on our new signing-Huth ;
I dunno if you know too much about Robert Huth, but I can assure you Charlie, you have got one hell of a good player.
He was always a firm favourite with the Chelsea fans.
His biggest asset is his free kicks.
There is not a player in world football today who can kick a ball as hard as Robert Huth.
He is famous at Chelsea for kicking a free kick from outside of the box against West Ham with such ferocity, that it went in and out so fast, that the ref and the linesman did not see it. It was only when it was showed in (very) slow motion, you actually saw the ball go in and out in a flash.
Jimmy Flloyd Hasselbaink has a hard shot on him, but trust me, it is weak compared to Huth. He scored a few goals for Chelsea and also for Germany. He is great in the air at set pieces as well.
We will all miss him at Chelsea, so look after him for us.
The Berlin Wall has arrived at the Boro!
Dont get your hopes up yet! I've heard through the grape vine from a friend in germany that he's been approached by Shalke and Bayern Munich so that could possibly put a spanner in the works. I hope he does come as what i've seen of him is impressive. He would be a very good partner for Chris Riggot who for me was as important for us as George Boateng.
