That was also my point during the summer, I think I recalled it several times :P

You should have got it trade marked :P

I admit in the summer I did think he was this developed and was saying that he should be loaned back to Wigan. Glad he's proved me wrong.

Everyone called him a Kalou replacement... turned out he wasn't haha!

I was right about him! Knew he'd be a great signing. Tbh I'd prefer him playing over Oscar atm, he has much more to offer in terms of pace, power and tactical awareness. Not bashing Oscar or that but he needs to bulk up a wee bit, hes lightweight but for an attacking midfielder though Oscar's defensive contribution is very good (as is Moses'). Moses has a very good attitude, it seems hes always looking to improve, hopefully Rafa will keep starting him!

Wow! not really watching the same matches as it seems... I expect him to do a lot better in the future to claim a starting spot for chelsea. With his current one-trick pony performances, he will remain a fringe player for a very long time.

Don't get me wrong, he is young enough and can develop, but develop he must.

A one-trick pony? Is he doing that between constantly tracking back, his interchangeability between playing wide and central, driving down the touchline and crossing, or cutting inside and shooting? Or perhaps because he can only score goals with his head, or can only win us half a dozen penalties a season with his burst of speed, strength and skill and his ability to instantly change direction? Is it because he has built up solid partnerships with four different right-backs this season, as well as the Trinity of EH17, O11 and JM10?

One-trick pony indeed. :rolleyes:

Moses had good games where his movement did cause problems for the opponents, but he also had games where he was completely ineffective. As the season unfolds, we will find out what his role is, because right now he *is* a fringe player; good option for second half when fullbacks are tired.

In my opinion, every time Moses has come on/played hes been effective. Either creates chances, gets a goal, draws plenty of fouls in good areas etc. You can't exactly call him a fringe player as he has started every game since Rafa took over except the City one IIRC and looks like he might be in the team for a while yet. Hes more than a fringe player in my eyes anyway.

Surprised to see people saying that Oscar is the fist who needs a break whereas Hazard doesn't put a foot in front of the other since september and Mata is just knackered (I watched the WH game last week, his touches are heavy, he's rusty. Gave the feeling to be a poor man's Andy Reid at times...)

In terms of form right now I was meaning. Obviously Mata and Hazard could do with a good rest but I don't feel that Rafa will start Moses, Oscar and Marin in the 3 behind the useless cunt upfront tbh unless its a shitty friendly game or something like that...

you are entitled to your opinion however misguided it is ,, And I think most people would disagree with you ... He looks like being MUCH more

than a fringe player

So, you've all made up your minds based on a handfull games, some in which he's come off the bench in the second half, but I'm the misguided one?! :rolleyes:

Our attack has been pathetic since Benitez joined and Moses has been part of that (according to the previous poster), so no, I expect far more from him as well as the rest of the team.

I hope you are right and I'm the one missing the greatness you see in him, but I just don't see him providing enough quality to become a starter for Chelsea, at least not yet.

well on a handful of games YOU have decided he will not be more than a fringe player. I dont expect him to be Messi or Zola but he has shown more promise than you give him credit for

Moses has been one of our best players this season. His directness adds variety to our attack and he deserves a place in the team on merit. Great transfer.

Who except Mata has shown more than Moses lately?

Same for every player in world football, Messi and Ronaldo included. On a more local scale you can look at games where Torres and Hazard have done absolutely nothing, but as they are megastars, they avoid all criticisms.

No, we've made our minds up of the 8 starts and seven substitute appearances he's made this season. If we're going by your logic, are we not allowed to have opinions on players if they have only played a few games? If that's the case I ban you from talking about Frank Lampard, Daniel Sturridge and John Terry, because the three of them have played less minutes than Moses has this season.

is he counted as English ? as he doesnt play for England anymore

Yes. The home grown applies to him. I think they have to have trained in England for 3 years before their 21st birthday.
