Danny Drinkwater

When England played Germany as the national anthems were played they got to Drinkwater and all you could hear in the pub was '' Who the fuck is that?''. The sort of uninspiring cloggers English football always produces.

I'm gonna go to the Megastore and ask for 'Drinkwater' on the back of my shirt. I know for a fact Danny is waiting in a backroom for the time to announce he's a 'Chelsea player now'

All right people, let's use our heads a bit.

Were Drinkwater to come here, he wouldnt replace Matic, Bakayoko is his replacement as our starter, he would actually replace Chalobah as a squad player, and you cant tell me that he is not a better player than Chalobah, so it wouldnt be the worst deal in the world, assuming that the price is good

Tbf, there's a lot worse squad players around, a lot worse. Whether he is an upgrade on Matic is highly questionable but my word he is a huge, huge upgrade on Chalobah.

Am I the only one who thinks he's not that bad? :lol:

Could well do a job in midfield as 4th choice CM and fills the HG quota too. At the moment the club have just 3 HG and 14 non-HG players so room for just three non-homegrown players left, which is why I think we're seeing the club being linked with the likes of Ox, Barkley and now Drinkwater too.

In the 3-4-3 this 4th midfielder won't play a role too essential so I think the club could do a lot worse than Drinkwater. For those saying he's not better than Matic, that maybe true but Nemanja wasn't willing to stick around after Bakayoko nicked his place in the first choice starting XI so it's not like Conte could keep him against his will. Selling Matic to Man Utd was of course slightly questionable but let's not hold that against Drinkwater.

Also for a while I've been thinking the transfer targets for this season are leaning the team towards a Juventus style 3-5-2 formation. Morata-Hazard up front with Bakayoko-Cesc-Kante in midfield and two strong attacking wing-backs (the likes of Alex Sandro and Candreva been linked) providing support from the wings. For such formation obviously the new wing-backs are a top priority but also two new CM signings would be needed for squad depth too. Baker could cover for Fabregas but Bakayoko and Kante have no backups, so maybe if two new players are signed Drinkwater could fill one of those needs and someone like Renato Sanches the other one (if he's still available).

For the right price I say why not. Having signed a new contract last summer I don't see Leicester letting him go on the cheap though, so that's a problem.

While i understand people being unimpressed with this keep in mind that we're looking for a fourth choice CM. It's difficult finding a top midfielder who'd be willing to sit on the bench for the majority of the season. 

Like some people have said, he'd be Chalobah's replacement not Matic's.

This is exactly why I questioned Matić's departure. Not glad that I was probably right.

Maybe we will not eventually get this guy, but our targets are clear - no one from them is better than Matić.

As stated above, he will be replacing Nate, Matic has already been replaced.

Well, I don't agree with this. It's not like Baka MUST be his replacement. Baka and Matić could rotate too, even Kante. I think we could've pulled this: Bakayoko, Kante, Cesc, Matić. 4 competitions, Cesc can play upfront sometimes. But it is what it is now...
