But he isn't a scout, so does he identify talent? We don't know what exactly he does. Maybe he has last say on talent coming? Plenty of clubs were looking at Hazard along with us, but because we won the CL he chose us (apparently) so not really anything special by Emenalo in that situation. 

His position includes being head of the scouting department, so yes, he got a very big say in the scouting of players. This can be read even from Chelsea's official site.

We beat Mourinho. Emenalo leaves Chelsea.

This is the best 2 days in CFC in a long while.

This should have happened a long time ago. The board sucked hardcore.

His exact job is really vague. No one really knows.I think you are correct in the sense that he has final say in signing talented players...I do not like when managers are given too much power...They select players according to their style eventually leave with players who do not suit for successive managers ...It is very important to have overall vision and to define a chelsea style or philosophy..Hope this board cares about that

Well fuck knows what Emenalo's vision was.

 

His vision was a 3 man defense of Hector, Matt Miazga and Papy. It would be bad, but quite possibly the most entertaining defense in the premier league of all time.

Say this man's name. The greatest footballing mind + most consistent figure we've had at our club, maybe ever. Rejoice in what we have in him and give him his fucking credit.

How greedy is Marina, she fuckes up each summer deals but doesn't even have the dignity to resign.

Yet Arsensen got Ronaldo to fucking PSV. That was a huge scoop, even if he was well known by the point, clearly no big clubs thought he was quite as good as it turned out, and he sold him for a world breaking amount at the time. That is good scouting, even if he didn't come from out of nowhere.

Nothing is as crazy as these repeated posts in multiple places that Emenalo 'discovered' Hazard, the most hyped player at the time, that he discovered De Bruyne, who was literally, straight up, no other words to say it, 'discovered' by Piet de Visser, as well as Courtois. I don't know who 'discovered' Lukaku, the hottest thing perhaps in Belgian League history at the time, but I'd presume Piet de Visser knew of those exploits before Emenalo, considering he's the one who's been knee-deep in Belgium for 10 years. He found Musonda too. So stop this lie, and stop robbing a genuine man of credit.

Erase Piet de Visser's incredible Belgian work, and the 'discoveries' we've made amount to Oscar. 

Edit: And Miazga, Papy, Kenedy, Piazon....:lol:No manager of ours signed van Ginkel, either. I really wanted van Ginkel, but what was i, 15 years old or something? I knew nothing. He should have. He didn't.

Oh and Marko Marin :lol::lol:I wonder if he 'found' Azpilicueta though, because we were going through a shaky period then, so surely he was in charge of transfers. If he chose him, for whatever reason, some credit goes to him.

I agree with your overall point. But just think not giving Arnesen credit for bringing such a talent as Ronaldo to PSV, is a bit silly. That was an incredible signing for PSV and although he was well known and not discovered by Arsensen, he was the one who thought highly enough of him to sign him at that young age. 

On Lukaku obviously every scout and their mother knew about him, by the time he played for Anderlects youth team and many probably before that as well. But it was Ariel Jacobs who gave him the chance and believed in him even at a very young age. Still think Emenalo should get credit for signing so many of these huge talents, it's not just about being the first to know about them, but also thinking they could be worth the money. Hazard however it's hard to give much credit for, lots of clubs were more than willing to pay the money. We can thank Drogba, RDM and some heroic defending in Munich for that more than Emenalo.

Best news in a while! 

Next up is Marina. 

Although she might stay there for another season. 

Just get someone like Drogba in there! 

Like Juventus did by bringing Nedvěd in
