Several days ago we ran a poll asking you all to rank our need in several different areas of the pitch. I gave you 10 different positions and asked you to rank how urgently you felt Chelsea needed to address these particular areas on a scale of 1-10. 1325 of you responded, and this afternoon I tallied the results of the poll. After the jump you can find the graph detailing exactly how you all thought we should address the roster.
Anybody surprised? As a community, we're clearly a bit concerned about finding additional depth at right back. Outside of that, we all seem to be very comfortable with Chelsea's roster in both defense and in net. After that we all seem to feel that the front line of the attack is a need, with central midfielders falling in right behind those positions.
With such a large sample in hand, it seems we should have a fairly decent idea about the views of the community as a whole. A few of us feel strongly about one particular need or another, and there has been a very vocal few pushing for help in the central midfield. Oddly though, that need didn't really show through as our most pressing when this poll ran for a few days. I'm sure you all have thoughts, so feel free to share them in the comments section below.
