14. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

I know today was Loftus-Cheek's first game in months but he doesn't seem to have the stamina to go the distance. Always seems to fade away in games.

Sorry - he didn't convince me. He needs time away with regular games.

There are three remaining days before the transfer window close, we should not waste time and sell him... And when it is done, we shall bring him and his agent to the Court because he is stealing £60k per week.

Does he even want to play football ? I mean he looks like a ten years-old kid who is forced by his parents to play a sport he does not like. There is no dynamism, no will, no spirit, no effort, no commitment... One can indeed question his will to play football. In anyway, even the referee has more dynamism in him !

It is pretty clear that this *kid* has nothing to do in top level football, I truly hope that the board finally comes to realization because we have spent too much time and money on him these last three seasons or so ; and he is blocking the path for youngsters who are clearly better than him — for instance, it would have been more gainful if it were Musonda that was granted this crucial playing time.

He ain't going anywhere right now.

I'm not his biggest supporter, but I thought he was really good today. Made excellent probing runs, for Fabregas to pass the ball, and involved in a lot of goal scoring opportunities. Not going to complain too much about his 'selfish' shots at goal, especially when we're 2-0 up against lower league opposition at home.

I agree, he is useful in attack, but has no clear position. so he won't be used much

Borussia Monchengladbach general manager Max Eberl has revealed his transfer plan for the upcoming summer, hoping to sign Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan in connection with Andreas Christensen’s imminent return to Stamford Bridge, according to German media outlet SportBild (via SportWitness).

Germany is the best place to send our players simply. You have to work just as hard to get points over there as you do here. No 1 player carries a team, they all pitch in. And then on top of that, no other league is as good for prepping you for the athletic demands our league requires. But that said, i just don't care for RLC. There's been players like him in the Bundesliga, all big with little technique & no pace, but at least they have determination. (I'm thinking Goretzka; very similar profile, yet miles ahead, despite still not even being quite good enough for Schalke.)

I think we played the whole RLC thing completely wrong. We hyped him to the hilt making him out to be the begining of our future coming from the academy, we pushed him at all the press coverage we could find and paid him far too much money for a kid thats as useful to us as Bambi on ice skates.

The follow on to this has now given our other non used 1st team academy kids seemingly the right to withold his signature on a new contract till he also gets his £60k a week.

But IF Conte insists this kids staying with us (maybe purely for HG status cause we are desperatly short) then I hope this is right. MAYBE we shall see today eh

Might as well keep around him around. Give him the Wenger treatment and wait and see if he'll ever become valuable. If he were to go out on loan, I don't feel Loftus-Cheek would make much of an impact wherever you send him. We've seen it time and time again with former youth loanees.

Same goes for Chalobah. And even Baker (who's done pretty well but Vitesse and Chelsea are so far apart it's not even funny). They'll most likely end up playing for a Championship side or enjoy a squad role on some bottom PL team. I don't know but I'd rather stay at Chelsea for a few years. Experience big club life, train with top level players and be a part of title winning teams.

Keep the English lads brought up at Chelsea in the squad for the next few years.

Well it better be in the Musonda role, i.e. not on the bench, because having one of the top 5 worst midfielders in the league* being a bench mainstay is not acceptable. Especially when there are better players already in the club.

*Which is generous, because the only other midfielder down on this level is Cattermole. All of the teams bar Sunderland in or near relegation have far superior players than RLC who instead of wasting our time via 'development', would actually offer us experience. I'd sooner accept a Jack Cork, Yacob, Kouyate or Behrami coming off the bench. Equal or less wages too. :drunk:

good option coming off the bench vs tired legs. I imagine he'd do well vs city late on, they have toure, silva and kdb infront off a defence that can't run

Sorry but Im still not feeling him.

I do think hes looking a little less like Bambi on ice skates but dont see any reason why he shouldn't be out on loan learning how to do it week in week out.

Tho as we are in dire need of HG players he will probably end up keeping the bench warm again unless he wants out come summer.

Maybe we will loan RLC out and bring Baker in for HG player in the summer
