  1. 21. Davide Zappacosta

    We invested a lot of money in for him. No point loaning him out with option to buy. He is not quality, but I don't mind him as a back up. He has had some decent matches for us. Looks more of a threat tbh when coming on as a sub as he is very direct. Regarding the two academy lads mentioned. We know the chances of that are nil. Sterling looks set to joining Viveash at Coventry this season. A bit annoyed at that as think he should be playing a level higher in the Championship.

    http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11668/11410997/chelseas-davide-zappacosta-in-talks-with-inter-milan None of this loan with option to buy rubbish please. We either sell or make sure it is an obligation to buy for a set amount. I actually think he is a good squad player so if they aren't willing to buy him, then ideally we should keep him along. Would suit Sarri's style of play too.
  3. 7. N'Golo Kante

    He was not poor but he was not exactly outstanding. His passes were mainly to the player next to him and there was not many crucial tackles he made. Nothing worrying, just not a game where people need to start raving over him again as he was not exactly special. Pogba and Tolisso were more undermining though, agreed.
  4. 7. N'Golo Kante

    TBH, he was not really that good despite what the stats show. The whole France team were poor and looked laboured.
  5. Anthony Martial

    He does look the real deal however if you threw him in the first team against top opposition, it would be a lot more difficult for him. That is why I say I suggested your getting too ahead of yourself. If you put Martial in an U23 game he would destroy it completely.
  6. Anthony Martial

    I am a huge fan of Calum but you're exaggerating a bit too much by claiming he is better than Martial. Hudson-Odoi has not even started a full senior game yet. He has played glimpses for the first team in cup and league games and the others have been youth and U23 games. Martial is a very talented player who imo needs a new manager to thrive under as I still think he has so much potential to be a top, top player. Despite regressing over past couple seasons, Martial still got into double figures last season and I am sure under a more flair-minded manager, he would excel. Now if your saying you have no interest in signing him because you want the club to develop Calum then I could understand but to state he is better than Martial is way OTT as there is not much base.
  7. 10. Eden Hazard

    More concerning though is that he limped off with a thigh injury. Hopefully it is nothing serious and it is just a little knock and he can be fit for the WC opener.
  8. 70. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    He will wants to have his own ideas however I am sure him choosing Morris as an assistant will mean he will take a lot of ideas from Morris. Especially as he has had so much success with the youth players. A lot fans would want to see Hudson-Odoi with the first team and so would I but if he goes to a Championship team that can develop him well, would not be a bad loan. Mount looks very probably as although he has a brilliant season with Vitesse, I still think he will go out on loan due to the amount of CM we have.
  9. Allison Becker

    Alisson is 25 and tbh 25/26 is young for a keeper as they can play on a lot longer. I guess why he is being hyped up because he is kind of a late bloomer. Not much people knew of him before he joined Roma and tbh even the season before this one finished, I doubt much people knew who he was then too during his first spell at Roma.
  10. 70. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    With Lampard becoming manager at Derby and Jody Morris joining him as assistant manager, this may be a perfect loan opportunity for Hudson-Odoi. Pretty sure Derby will line up 4-3-3 and with Morris managing Hudson-Odoi through his development stages and knowing how good he is, you would think this is a move that should happen and would be a brilliant loan opportunity for Hudson-Odoi too. Maybe Mason Mount too. Lampard's and Morris appointment at Derby should hopefully see some of our exciting talents getting a loan opportunity there.
  11. 24. Gary Cahill

    He has had the disadvantage of playing on the LCB side a lot this season. That is playing on his weaker side and with him not blessed with pace, he will ne naturally more exposed. However when he came into the centre of our back three, you saw how much his performances improved.
  12. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Who says he isn't though?
  13. 28. César Azpilicueta

    7 actually in all competitions. 6 in the league and 1 in the FA Cup. The one for Morata against Southampton
  14. Jeremie Boga

    Boga for me was an exceptional talent when I saw him in the youth teams. He was on another level compared to some of his team mates and opponents. He had skill, close ball control, excellent balance, dribbling. Was just so exciting to watch. He obviously right now is not better than Willian or Pedro but he has potential that if we allowed him to play in the team, he could easily surpass those two. I mean look at Maitland-Niles. He went to Ipswich on loan a couple of seasons ago and did set the world alight. He goes back to Arsenal and they eventually integrate him in the team and he is being talked of as a real talent. FWIW, I thought he was the best player on the pitch when they played United at OT few weeks ago. But he mainly has got to excel because he is playing with top players rather than very average ones like he was playing in the Championship. I am a huge fan of youth football and I don't exaggerate when I say Boga is one of the best players I have seen in the youth set up. Has so much talent. I genuinely believe if he was at Ajax or someone, he would be linked with top clubs. Look at Justin Kluivert. Our U19 played Ajax U19 a few seasons ago in the UYL and Kluivert was a sub and was no way considered at that time better than our players who were playing. Yes, he was a sub for their U19 but he has been trusted to play for Ajax first team and now is linked with the likes of United and Barca. At that time of playing them, Kluivert was no way better than Boga. But one is playing for Chelsea and the other is playing for a team who gives majority of youngsters a chance. I still remain the same view. You will only see the best of Boga if we give him a chance but I highly doubt it which is a shame.
