Lampard achieved basically nothing by this whole Kepa benching nonsense. Not a good decision imo.

Oh the irony of Caballero's "save" for Bournemouth's equalizer...

he achieved that kepa now knows he's droppable if he plays like shit and will train more to get back for the starters place. or not. either way we will know where are we with kepa for the future.

Fuck. I really hoped we are going to sign decent backup who will push Kepa. 

But now like we already saw in this season even if he is in bad form he is still our best GK. 

Willian is next... Especially after Mertens stood up Lampard and CHO going Adam Johnson route.

the team may be the exact same, except with Ziyech swapped for CHO

and almost ALL the dregs not sold who are on loan

ffs

I think Willy not long back signalled clear intention to leave at the end of the season, so hopefully this is done purely because the season is going to go past June then we let him go.

Maybe, maybe not. With so much uncertainty right now, players may have been forced to reconsider their plans. For Caballero, signing an extension means at least he'll have the security of wages, still being involved in football etc while for the club, at least we have a backup secured for another season. If there is an opportunity to buy a new GK, maybe we would sell Caballero and buy a new GK. Otherwise, we would just stick with him for now.

Yeah he can still leave. Eduardo spent his last year at Chelsea on loan after contract extension.

it is rubbish if we go into the season with only his soon to be 39yo arse and then the oh-so-iffy Kepa as our only real keeper options (Cumming is nowhere near ready to play a string of games, and TBH, I doubt he ever is going to be a top keeper, at least for years)

it is courting disaster

Hahaha wants to remain number one :lol:

He conceded 21 goals in 14 games. Kepa have better record.

Indeed. He should really be our GK3 for next season. Obviously with the disaster that is Kepa, that isn't going to happen but that is where he is currently at for a team that wants top 4 and do well in the cups.

Frank Lampard shares that Chelsea goalkeeper Willy Caballero trains brilliantly

https://www.thechelseachronicle.com/club-news/frank-lampard-shares-that-chelsea-goalkeeper-willy-caballero-trains-brilliantly/

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has revealed that goalkeeper Willy Caballero is brilliant in training, as well as confirming that he’ll start on Wednesday night against Barnsley.

The Blues host Championship opposition Barnsley in the third round of the Carabao Cup and it’s a chance to try regain some confidence after the weekends 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League.

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga made another high-profile mistake against Liverpool, as the pressure continues to grow on the 25-year-old Spaniard and supporters remain frustrated with him.

Lampard has confirmed (official website) that Rennes’ 28-year-old goalkeeper Edouard Mendy is having a medical ahead of his move to Stamford Bridge, which now looks on the verge of completing.

But it’s veteran Caballero that will get his opportunity to try impress in midweek against Barnsley and he did play 14 first-team games last season.

The 38-year-old is a senior figure in the dressing room at Stamford Bridge and still has plenty to offer on the pitch as well.

Lampard had previously stated that the Argentine shot-stopper was in line to start against Barnsley, but has now added he has throughly earned the opportunity to play due to the fact he’s an excellent trainer.

“The decision on Willy Caballero [to start] was made before Liverpool and it was a decision I made a lot in cup competitions last year. Willy trains brilliantly throughout the year and deserves these opportunities,” Lampard said, as quoted by the club’s official website.

Caballero is a real professional that will be doing what he can to lift the spirits of Kepa, plus he’s likely to help imminent signing Mendy when he arrives too.

It seems unlikely that the veteran goalkeeper will get too many minutes this season, so should enjoy the Barnsley fixture and hope for a good run in the League Cup.

Willy did well. If Kepa was in goal, we concede 2 or more goals today, I guarantee you that.

I remember people defended Lampards decision of starting Kepa against the Scouse cunts. How stupid do they feel now? Caballero at this age is 10x the keeper Kepa is.
