Jeremie Boga....

Why is everyone getting so excited over this kid? He performed well against a half-arsed Arsenal but he was bang average for a whole season with Granada.

Remember Aina and Chalobah looked like world beaters last pre-season...

I have watched Boga perform in some matches for Granada and I thought he played very good. He was their only offensive minded player in most of the matches. When Boga got the ball, he always managed to dribble past 2 or 3 players and than passed the ball to his teammates,who always lost the ball. It was not his fault that Granada are not playing his type of football. Furthermore, Granada played a lot of long balls forward and Boga  is not the kind of player who can show his best abilities when his team is not playing possession type of football.

Look at this from the Chelsea Youth twitter page. Something I have been stressing for a long while:

I read @chelseayouth's ouput avidly. As I've said before, it's must read for me but....

He does tend to be a little too supportive and optimistic about the lads. I love Jed's talent; everybody does, but he flatters to deceive. He produces some nice eye catching runs but not enough genuine end product of standard professional efficiency. I think there's a lot of overestimating going on about what we saw from Jed on Saturday and today.

What overestimation do you see from some? I don't think anyone is tipping him to be a future star or anything, most comments allude he can play at this level and could be fourth choice after Hazard, Pedro, and Willian. I think more or less that is fair, he can do a job when called upon sparingly.

Playing with world class players will help him improve his overall game. Iwobi for instance was prob not even known by majority of people before Wenger brought him through. He certainly was not better than Boga was at youth level but playing with world class stars has helped him up his game. Boga is still only 20 and has a lot of time to add to his game. His decision making needs to improve but for a player who has not really impressed on loan and to have the confidence he did was refreshing to see. He was constantly looking for the ball against Arsenal, making dribbles and they were fouling him god knows how many times. I thought, bar his productivity in final third, he was brilliant on Saturday. The amount of friends I had (some Arse) who were giving him rave reviews. Today, not as good as Saturday, but still one of our better players.

Big reason behind Iwobi getting a chance is because of who his Uncle is. I don't see Boga ever being offered the chance to play a handful of games and underperform like Iwobi did at times.

I  personally see him as a useful option and nothing more right now.

Boga's vision in the final third has me wanting. It's not good enough at all as of yet. At the top level you rarely get afforded time to think. He doesn't release the ball at the right times to turn a very good run into a goal scoring chance for others, or even for himself. He seems to dribble his way out of trouble well but rarely makes it count. He's a flashy player for sure, but this is the aspect of his game that he needs to improve massively if he is to have a proper future here.

Wenger didn't put him in the Arsenal team because of Okocha. He got their because of belief and Wenger had enough faith to put him in the team. But, yeah Boga won't get that same chance. Iwobi tailed off but when he came on to the scene, was very impressive. I remember they played Barca and thought he was their best player then followed it up by another MOTM performance against Everton and ever since that he has been a big part of their team/squad.

He's definitely come along due to an extended run in a team that finished fifth.

We really can't be comparing the two when youngsters are involved. They have to hit the ground running before they have any hope of a starting berth in the long run. One game left to make a notable impression.

He broke in to the team season before that. That is my point but at youth level was no better than Boga. But he was given a chance by Wenger. He got a chance is that second leg against Barca and Wenger kept faith with him.

And won nothing and got humiliated in CL. Never take Arsenal as an example in anything.

They played Barca tbf and he was actually impressive and then put in a MOTM performance against Everton when they won 2-0. A game a lot of pundits and other people were expecting them to stumble in. My point is if we use Boga same way, he could turn out to be as impressive.

BREAKING NEWS: @AS_Monaco have found an agreement with @OfficialSSLazio for Keita Balde for €30M + bonuses. (@MarioGiunta)
 

 

As far as I know, Lazio agreed on fee with quite a few clubs, but Keita was willing to go only to juve...maybe he accepts Monaco tho.

And Jovetic also signed for Monaco too.
