Naah, it still belongs to City. We're yet to see how Jorginho and Golovin manage to adapt and how good they are here.

I’m optimistic if we get him of course. 

City have only attacking midfielders  and one  DM (Fernandinho ,33yrs) 

we have more balanced squad but ok  we must prove it .

Hopefully it's true and hopefully he's in ASAP. He and Jorginho getting a full preseason would be huge and will allow us to have a settled midfield almost immedietly.

Cant believe Chelsea could even think of resting Ngolo now. Great start to the window.

Just thinking of a midfield that allows me to watch Chelsea dominate possession and consistently take the game to our opponents (even in the big matches, hopefully!) makes me smile. Not going into every match just praying we don't allow some shit team to bully Fabregas or have Bakayoko get sent off for a couple of idiotic tackles or surrender possession in our half.

If we sign Golovin, though, obviously RLC is off on loan and almost surely permanently next summer. Ruben needs to be playing every game and won't if Golovin is here.

Sounds like it's about done this, really good bit of business. I liked his energy in the WC, he looked like a real live and hungry player, really put himself about and never let the oppo rest.

This transfer window is starting to heat up now. I still think Willian will go, if he does, we need to address that position and quickly.

I agree with your first paragraph 100%. Golovin/Kante/Jorginho is a wonderfully balanced midfield, something we havent had in forever. I try to be an optimist but for some reason I have a feeling in my gut Barkley & Bakayoko will surprise us this year, maybe its just because the bar is so low for expectations but regardless I have a sneaky feeling they will produce.

My quoting you is in regards to the never ending RLC Conundrum. I am right there with you, I think he will be gone and I flip flop every day seemingly on him. I see the potential and dream but many coaches have seen him and play him in positions that dont seem to maximize his talent. What could we be missing? Half the people here rate him, the other dont. That seems like the book on him in the professional world as well. So confusing. I'd thought he would be in the first team fighting for minutes this season, sadly I think if he does go out on Loan he won't play for us again and I don't know if im upset about that or not!

even if Golovin starts out as our 4th choice CM he could start around 35 games his first season as he could play either of the 3 roles. the more often Kante,Jorginho and Golovin start tho the more probable teams revert back to long ball football against us because they aint gonna boss between the boxes on that trio.

Quite happy with this, if it happens. Not really seen much aside from the World Cup and a few CSKA games in European competitions but at €25M it's a low risk transfer either way and if he succeeds it will be a real bargain.

Aside from midfield I could see him being played out wide in Willian's position too, great work rate and got the vision to make magic happen.

He is also equally ineffective in front of goal as Willian but also a scorer of great goals.

True, but at 22 he can still improve on that whereas the Willian we've seen is as good as he'll ever be.

Expect Golovin to mostly play in midfield, but being versatile enough to also play at LW/RW is a bonus.

More creation we have in midfield, more we can focus on getting goalscoring winger. It's rare that winger is creative AND good goalscorer. With Jorginho and Golovin, right-winger must be some goal-scoring machine, more like Bale-Salah-Sanchez-primePedro-Robben type of player than Hazard-Reus-Ribery type. Someone who attacks the space with great runs and know how to score, mainly.


For the record Jorginho isn’t exactly creative, he’s more of tempo and rhythm guy.

I highly doubt we loan Ruben, you guys are forgetting the homegrown player allocation.

I think that midfield of Kante, Jorginho, Golovin, Bakayoko, Barkley and RLC would be a very good midfield in terms of quality and depth. 

Both RLC and Barkley also able to play some minutes on the wing.

Why does RLC needs to go on loan? He is better option than Barkley, Drinkwater, and Mehyoko.

RLC is not going to play in every game at the club, no youth will ever make at any big club with that entitlement mentality. He needs to come in with the same mentality as Christensen, earn his playing time. And that is the only way you will ever make it at Chelsea, and that goes for every youth. 

I strongly believe in Golovin, but at the end of the day he is coming from the Russian league. RLC has experience in the league, if he believes he belongs at a club like Chelsea than he should have no qualms with competing.
