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)
Definitely looks like it will be hell raising at both ends

Not sure of what to make of this.

While he won't fix problems in defense, he will most certainly improve it in other ways.

It would be almost like us having Marcel Desaiily back in the 2000's, when he had strong influence on the growth of JT as a defender. Could really help out some of our younger defenders, in terms of mentality.

The question is,...is that what Frank really wants for next season?

We don't have much of a choice, do we? There is no market for a CB right now and even Rice, Lampard's no.1 target, will cost a fortune. We don't have a bottomless pit of cash.

"Chelsea are paying an initial £50 million, with further money believed to be due on installments."

Just because you an advantage doesn't mean you need to throw money at every average Joe like Chilwell. If anything I feel his signature killed a lot of our advantage, could've bought someone else for the 30-40 million and get Reguilon.

Why are people so concerned about price? City spent more on Cancelo and Mendy and they are not even starters. 

And now they go again with Ake, Koulibaly... 

that is true. 50m seems to be the standard price for an average but young, up and coming full back. Cancelo, Mendy are not even much better than Chilwell now.

Price is important because Barcelona overpaid for many players and now do not have any money left.

The telegraph link said 50m is only the initial payment with add ons. 60m+ is a ripoff.

I rate him at 40m. Nothing more. 50m I can live with given City fucked the market up. If we paid 60m+ (which is ridiculous) then we have wasted money whilst we have 2-3 other roles to fill

It is not the same when you pay 50m or 25m for a full back or when you spend +100m for three players. Not to mention salaries. Griezmann have 800k ffs.

If there is any transfer purchase that is wasteful, it is Havertz...
