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.

Well, he hasn't yet "played" technically. He would be if/when he does play for us. However he is NOT the first Colombian player to ever sign for Chelsea as that would be the currently on loan Joao Rodriguez.

Cuadrado is the first player to join the first team though. Academy players come and go, I don't think they count.

Also, Joao is not on loan anymore, he returned from Bastia.

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!

Hmm Willian 2.0? Phenomenal work rate, just doesn't have a finish

Well, he was the first Colombian player to sign a professional contract with Chelsea which technically makes him the first ever Colombian Chelsea player.

Yeah, it seems he did return from Bastia last month. Why we're loaning out a 17yo is beyond me, though.

Brilliant, another Willian. There's nothing we needed more desperately than another attacking player unable to score goals.

Also, #74 has to be up there with the aesthetically most horrible numbers, smh. Should take #39 if he wants to wear a "special" number.

He'll score more goals than Willian, but he ain't the WC RWF some people were crying out for.

Sounds just like Willian. I just hope this guys is at least better than Willian... If not, it's a waste and we should've kept Shirley temple

74 doesn't look too bad. Yeah, it's an uncommon choice, but it's not a big deal. It'll stick out the first time, then everyone is going to forget about it.

Balotelli also wears some ridiculous number, I noticed it the first time and it never bothered me again.
