Chelsea have rejected a £10m bid from Brighton for England Under-20 defender Reece James, 19, who has also been linked with Crystal Palace. (Sun)

we need to keep Reece here at all costs.

As long ago as October 2011 I predicted that Romelu Lukaku's attributes would make him able to contribute to a team, but that the manager of any top club who employed him would soon be on the look out for an upgrade because of Rom's technical limitations. The first time I saw Tammy play for the 18s he was used wide right to accomadate Dom Solanke, who was preferred at CF. Tammy did well with his long strides, pace & power but I placed him in a similar category to Rom. A good lad with desireable attributes but lacking the finesse to match the requirements of top clubs. Tammy could be a squad member for us, a replacement Giroud, but I suspect that role wouldn't satisfy him at this stage of his career.

I'd also take Rom as a backup by the way, but he'd cost too much, and need to be paid way, way too much to give value for money in that role. For our starter I want a player with elite talents. Easily said, but not so easily achieved I agree.

And Rom criticized AVB for wanting him to play RW to improve his technical attributes and now look at him, as we say in Scotland, has a first touch like a rapist.

I think Reece will be in the squad next year, possibly as an Azpi and Kante back up. Has huge potential in both roles.

If he plays as a BU for Azpi and Kante, he will get 10 matches under Sarri, who does not like to rotate his players. It would be way better to loan him out to a PL team, who really need a RB.

I think he's already the best fullback at Chelsea

Would say theres hoping for him to do well and then putting far too expectation on him, this guy hasnt played a PL game. He looks ready to be a member of the squad for me yes but that comment is ludicrous, no offence mate.

The rest is up to him ultimately. 

Will he put in the work off the pitch? Gym sessions to meet the physical demands of the premier league. Technical sessions to improve his ability on the ball. All that's left for him is to have the right mentality. That is what separates him from being #1 on the team sheet next season.

Darmian is going to Inter for £10m or so

just rejected a 4 year extension at Manure

heard on a podcast last week he does not like OGS

its the EPL

it is crazy hard league for really good players of a certain type of very tactical player to succeed in

especially Manure

look at Daley Blind

has been a monster now for Ajax (and it isnt just against weaker Dutch sides, he has been very very good in the CL)

EPL is like ice hockey versus other leagues' lacrosse

It might be ludicrous, or it might be right. I think it's right, but I accept we don't agree about that. If I tone it done a bit and say that he's one of the best, who should be a member of the squad next season, then maybe we can agree about that.

From Latics Speyk

Reece, even at just 19 years old, is fully deserving of the armband. He's a very very special talent, the like of which only gets seen a handful of times in a generation. We'll never see him back at Latics. That's just life, and as much as I'm gutted about it, it's just reality. Hate to say it, but Reece James is better than Wigan Athletic, and I say that advisedly after 20 plus years supporting the club. Frankly, it's been a privilege and an honour to see him play for us this season. He's not just a future England player, but a future England captain, without a shadow of a doubt. His talent is beyond question, but his attitude, his mentality, his temperament... Second to none. 

Reece James is a football icon in the making, and I honestly feel honoured to have had the privilege of seeing him play this season.

I'm hoping he has the Trent impact, we need some pace in our defence 

Pace is not one of Reece's better attributes. He has pretty much everything else but not that. If you want pace at right back then Tariq Lamptey is your man. Tariq is technically excellent and absolutely lightening. Promlem is he's tiny. So tiny, he makes Jay Dasilva look tall. Whereas Jay is muscular however, Tariq is a feather.

Between natural growth, the protein diet he's no doubt following, and the gym work they must be putting him through, Tariq will beef up but his basic frame is what it is. For that reason, I fear Chelsea managers might hesitate to use him at full back. Maybe wing back would suit him better. Whatever happens, the kid can fly and he can dance past people. I feel sure he'll get a gig somewhere on the pitch, at some level of the professional game.

In the linked video, watch out for my favourite Chelsea goal of 2017/2018. Tariq intercepts well inside his own half, plays a ball up to the centre forward, puts on the burners to collect a return pass inside their area and bangs it in from just outside the six yard box. As the commentator says, "Wonderful goal."

I don’t think James is slow at all but not lightning quick, similar to TAA although James seems better at carrying the ball.

I agree. I didn't mean to make it appear that Reece is slow, just that he's not a speedster.

Marco van Ginkel (on a 1 year loan, after being there for 5 months before, it was his second loan spell there) was the PSV Eindhoven captain for the whole 2017-18 season. He led them to the 2017–18 Eredivisie title, and would have been sold to them perm (still may be) last summer had he not ripped up his knee.
