Ben Chilwell

I think the key thing to note with chillwell despite his flaws. We know he's not the best left back in the world. But... The upgrade from what we have be it azpi playing left back or marcos alonso is a big jump even if he puts in solid above average performances which I'd say is something he can do. Which makes it different from the other signings which turned out to be busts. Of course you could argue we could buy xyz for cheaper at left back but it's not as easy as that. And a young player who can still improve will hold his value seems ideal to me. Plus it weakens a team who's been a rival in recent years.

Of course if its actually 80 mil then that does change things but I think 50 is a fair price

The same FL who has developed Mason Mount for the last few seasons, why can't he do it with Chilwell? Or are we just just writing him off already....damn I'm asking the wrong certain group of fans here aren't I?

Think he'll do well for us tbh

It sounds like Lampard is the one who is playing FM more than us, everyone with two eyes can tell he isn't so good, we've been here before with Drinkwater and Bakayoko. Hope I'm wrong though.
Hes not drinkwater level lol. Hes a defensive liability in my eyes, I think hes about as good as alonso defensively. In fact, when we are sitting deep and there's little space to get burnt in race, Alonso is pretty decent even against the top 6. Chilwell Will improve on alonso where the game is stretched, hes quite the athlete.

His speed Will help with stopping counter attacks and hes a better dribbler. Its the consistent day dreaming to look out for

Remember, even the very best fullbacks in world football look shaky at times against great attackers. That's just a fact of modern football. Robertson, TAA, Kyle Walker. All can be got at defensively. Look at that CL semi between Bayern and Barca. Some of the world's best fullbacks on display and both teams were wide fucking open in the wide defensive areas.

So any opposition fans saying Chilwell is a joke defensively can pipe down. He's average defensively just like every class fullback.

It's not defensively i'm really worried about him, as you say very few FB's are rock solid these days it's more going forward, he often lacks the aggression, movement and quality decision making you see from the likes Robertson, Telles, Grimaldo, pre injury Mendy or even Tierney.

Well done!!! Best transfer window in the history!

Only GK left.

Second or third, I still think Mourinho Mark 1 was the best ever.

Makes me proud of Azpi

Excellent price, the only concern is how fast he will be back in form following his injury. 

There is nothing indicating that Reguilon, Tagliafico, Gosens or Telles would have been a better signing. Furthermore, the board is never going to spend 50m+ on a player just because Frank fancies him, there is certainly a lot more belief in the player than from one person. 

We should be happy to be honest. The worst outcome is when you have a coach with a specific idea of how to play, but then go and buy players who don't necessarily fit (Gosens or Tagliafico for example). 50m is also not a fortune in this day and age for an English national player who also has a long contract at a rival team.

Much better than a window where we don't at least try to address our problems.
Big sign that the club is backing FL (if these are his guys which it would appear so at least in part).

Going forward is gonna be exciting. May take a few years off your life defensively but damn we will have some exciting games next season (hopefully)
