So Cech said that club still believes in him and that nobody is writing him off. 

Kepa will stay and fight for his place with new GK.

Cech wasn't going to come out and say Kepa is shit and is up for sale in the public, was he? 

Yeah but he would not say we hope he has big future here. It is clear now he is staying, it is up to him for how long... Nobody is saying same thing about Michy, Emerson... Because they are 100% leaving.

Really bad from the club if Kepa is not moved, whether it's loan or sale. He is absolutely not the goalkeeper to have at this club going forward, his mentality is shot, his ability as a goalkeeper is rank poor and if we are to stick with him and he continues like he has been we deserve all the flack we get. He is absolute middle of the road, and if we are continuing to move forward with buys like Havertz, Werner and Ziyech and we keep him then I am sorry our improvement will be stagnated.

Get fucking rid.

Exactly our issue last season was letting in a ridiculous amount of goals..and the goals we let in some were also stupid. That isn't going to change unless the goal keeper has changed. For his sake also his confidence was shot. Players could tell weren't happy...

Aslong as we have a new keeper it should be win win (unless the new one turns out bad, not worth thinking about).

If he's up against Frank's choice of keeper he's going to have to do ridiculously well to even get a sniff.

Different circumstances no? One is the most expensive player in his position while the others aren't in theirs. There is also currently a market for the likes of Batshuayi, Emerson etc while there is not an obvious one for Kepa at this moment. So, it is not surprise Cech is making sure we do not leave ourselves exposed by making us look desperate to get rid of him.

If we can't find a landing spot he will have to stay and fight for his place and I hope he does do that (if he stays) as at least then he may work harder to be better. But Frank clearly doesn't have faith in him so it will be a hard task. But if he can fight and wins the job back then cool. He can't be worse than last year

Plus from a finance point of view I think the club is gonna need more appearances (hopefully better or some improvement) before they'll be able to at least get half of what we paid back.

Who wants to spend 40 mil or whatever on the keeper with the worse save percentage in the history of the prem

This window has been great so far and will probably get better, but if we are keeping Kepa and and actually continuing to go with him week in and week out then we are seriously undoing some of the great work.

Back 4 once again a complete nervous wreck and vice versa

Yeah, seeing Kepa coming out to claim an aerial ball and flapping badly for another season would suck. I don't doubt that a fresh start in a new season can see him regain his shot stopping form that we saw under Sarri, but you can't fix being short and physically soft.

Every team we play will gameplan specifically around winning as many free kicks and corners as possible to exploit Kepa's softness.

Spain's Kepa Arrizabalaga, 25, is prepared to stay and fight for his Chelsea place, even if the club are successful in signing a new goalkeeper. (Telegraph)

Thats quite depressing:(

So all of you are acting like there is absolutely no chance that Kepa turns out good in the future?

The same people who praised him to heaven just 18 months ago (after watching him every week for 6 months) are now calling him worst GK in the world and worst Chelsea buy in history?

No one said we need new GK after his 1st season here, yes he was shit last season but it is due to confidence and mentality. Now people are upset if he stays as backup?

Same for others... Again for RLC... He is judged for last couple of games after horrific injury... Like there is no chance we see again Ruben we saw under Sarri?
