  Damien Duff - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Duff completed his move to West London in July (the transfer fee of £17m was at the time a club record), and there were high hopes for the Irishman.
Duff is now one of the most feared wingers in Europe with pace, accurate crossing and impressive finishing combined with his much improved versatility, such as an ability to play on the right-wing, as a second striker or at left-back.
Duff proved to be a pivotal player for Chelsea in 2004/2005 but the 2005/2006 season was largely disappointing for Duff as he failed to recapture his form from the previous season.
