Or even swapping Oscar with Willian. Can you imagine the pace and skill there with Cuadrado - Willian - Hazard? Insane.

I was going to swap it that way but the idea in principle is correct. Can't fucking wait.

Different clubs have different rules on squad numbers that is simple I was explaining the difference in Serie A and PL if you can't see that then you really are just a wind up merchant

I really struggle sometimes with figuring out whether Term-X is the greatest troll in TalkChelsea history or if he's just being plain ridiculous. :lol:

Can see us shipping him out in a season or 2 just hope we can recoup as much as possible because IMO this guy is average and not a upgrade on Schurrle or even De Bruyne who we sold last year

74 is stupid, but you can't blame him if the club allows it.

More importantly, congrats and best of luck to him. Hope he can find the consistency that Schurrle could not and that can cement him in the first team.

So I was speaking to a close friend who is a Fiorentina supporter and he said we have a real gem on our hands but don't get too excited about his shooting, as it is one of the worst in the Serie A in terms of percentage per shots on goal. That said, he is a real work horse and will always track back and defend, exactly what Jose likes in a player!

Tweet before the deal :lol:

Cuadrado deal only being held up by a #CFC marketing department staffer deciding which Instagram filter to use over contract signing photo.

I don't mind it, but actually we have decent numbers available like 14,15,17 and 9

It isn't based on facts it's based on you presuming there is a set of social rules that apply to players concerning their squad number. You haven't produced any shred of evidence outside of your anecdotes.

There is clearly a system clubs in English football and beyond use, it's just a case of connecting the dots. Oh, and don't get hung up on semantics.

It annoys me because it promotes the advertisement of players over the whole club and individualism over team spirit. Because it should be "just a number" it annoys me that the club allows players to pick such unconventional numbers that allows them to stick out.

Another effect of football turning into a money oriented business....but that does not hang on this case so it's not that important. Was just making an observation about the principle.

Quick question guys and gals. Is Cuadrado the first Colombian to ever play for Chelsea? I can't think of any other right now.

Yes he is. We have Joao Rodriguez in the reserves though.
