Rumoured Luke Shaw

Said hes a Chelsea fan on twitter. Don't think hes as good as everyone makes out, overhyped like most young English players, he had a good game against us so another thread... might as well sign Ricky Lambert too then...

He's looked good almost every time I've seen him...and he's 17 and starting in the Premier League. He might not develop, but he's showing a lot at a very young age. I'd take Lambert too. Would be a perfect cheap backup to Ba.

Amazing to see how Shaw is streets ahead of Bertrand and is six years younger...

Quite. Shaw is also blessed with a lot more raw pace than Bertie, which helps immensely.

Not quite. Bertrand is, with Ramires, the fastest in our team. According to Frank, anyway.

On Luke, leave the poor boy alone. He's doing very well at such a young age; no need to bring him here and ruin his career.

i can't imagine Ramires and Bertrand faster than Hazard...

And do you really think that they are faster than Moses?

Yeah, a young inexperienced no mental strength player is exactly what we need now.

It's very rare you find 17 year olds with bags of experience, but I think people who want us to buy this kid are thinking a bit further than this season.

Not sure what you're on about with a lack of mental strength - he's done well at a young age in a tough situation. I'd take him in a heartbeat not just because he's looked very accomplished when I've seen him, but because he's English and he's also a Chelsea supporter. We are going to need a new left-back if Ashley leaves. Personally I'd like to see him stay and get this kid as backup.

No offence to Bertrand but he's going to be 24 before the start of next season and he's still not exactly shown a huge amount in his time here. The best compliment I can give him is that most of the time he looks dependable. Shaw looks exciting.

I think they are mate. Eden has acceleration but not raw pace.

Fair enough, I can see where you're coming from. But at some point we need to start thinking about the present, not the future. Our last 2 season buys have been aimed at only for the future. I have a genuine concern of becoming a chaotic version of Arsenal - once threatening to dominate, then fading away into a team which serves as a platform for players to jump to better places. All we need for that downward spiral to kickstart is miss out on CL for one season and start being content with top 4 finishes season after season. I admit I know nothing about this Shaw guy, but if he is genuinely a talent with good work ethic and mentality and not just another English hype who will fade into obscurity, and if the price is right, then why not get him.

Not sure about Bertrand but Ramires definitely has everyone pipped when it comes to speed. Hazard has the best acceleration though. Mata also has great acceleration, but his speed is nowhere near Hazard.

17? Blah I'm getting older.

I like to see him play for Chelsea one day but he seems pretty set on playing for Soton for a while longer.

Streets ahead? Hyperbole much. He's not at all. IMO if Bertrand was at Southampton he'd probably be their starting left back.

Ryan has barely played left back this season.

I honestly can't see bertrand taking over the role of Cole, it would be a big drop in quality imo, and I can't see him improving that much in the next couple of years. Don't get me wrong, he is/will be a solid defender, and could start in plenty of EPL teams, but I think if Chelsea wants to be world class they will have to have word class or near world class players in every position, so if not Shaw, we need someone for that position.
