Heard that he could play really well too in RB position. If I could wish, hopefully Omeruo will be included in squad too. Yes both are very young, but they are quality and could learn from senior players ongoing. They won't play as a regular starter for a team like Chelsea anyway, but could be a useful backup. Then we don't need to sign a high profile CB. Could 'save' the money for someone like Pogba.

A new LB, Ake - Cahill, Terry, Ivan, Omeruo - Azpi and Zouma could do the job. 2 players every position, with Ivan, Azpi and Zouma could play in more than one position, could well cope any injury or suspensions. Also why I wish for Omeruo because Kalas has been loaned out.

Eh? He was fucking class. Two mistakes from a 20 year old in a semi-final; one of which he rectifies and the other his centre-half partner resolves. People must prefer Cahill backing off to Zouma's ag

Trained with the team today.

I don't see why we need to have young players as back up players, they don't play every week where in contrast they could be out on loan playing every week for a club, developing, learning, gaining experience.

Look at Kalas last year, how many games did he start? He didn't even start against Swindon in the Capital One Cup for god sakes, he started 2 games (Liverpool and Cardiff I think), ironically in the last 4 or 5 matches of the season. He would have benefitted from a season on loan with Ivanovic coming in at CB when we had an injury/suspension.

Theres a reason why young players don't make it here, because when we have them in the squad they don't play. McEachran was never going to displace Lampard or Mikel or Ramires or Meireles under AVB on a regular basis, how often were they injured as well? Only Lamps was injured a bit and he was in and out of the team. Kalas was never going to displace Cahill, Terry or Luiz or even Branna if he played at CB. Young players at big clubs are generally better going on loan than sitting in the squad.

There are a few exceptions, maybe Marco will be a regular next year but again did anyone expect him to displace Lampard or Ramires or Mikel regularly for Chelsea? Before we signed Matic, we were light in CM so maybe he would have had more of a chance to play but now we've added Fabregas as well as losing Lampard and everyone thinking we should try and sign Pogba or someone to replace Ramires... so how is he meant to get a game? I think Marco will be used as a rotation player next season to be honest but thats because I think we won't sign any more midfield players and Mikel could possibly not feature as much.

Zouma definitely needs to go on loan, hes only 19, he needs to play every week to keep improving.

That's Kalas case is mainly because he is injured at the start of the season. And after that he is struggle to make it, also because the team are getting solid by the time he is fully fit.

About Zouma, who knows though maybe Jose could do 'Varane' to him. We will see how he perform, and how Jose will use him in the pre season. But I'm also understand some of your point though that Zouma somehow not ready yet, that's why I wish for Omeruo, I think he is 'experienced' enough.

Awesome? They used Carvalho and Abidal there last season and they both renewed their contracts, as well as having young promising players like Borja Gomez, Isimat-Mirin and they also signed Aymen Abdennour permanently, as well as a few other guys as well if I remember rightly. They have too many CBs, theres no point in him going there if he isn't going to play every week.

Abidal gone to olympiacos but i agree with the rest

I have to admit to not following this kid too much. I don't know much about him but from what I've seen from the youtube vids???!!! My Lord! We got a fabulous prospect on our hands! He's HUGE! looks a superior athlete, gets up higher than everyone when contesting aerials and seems to be very combative!

I am intrigued to see what we do with him this year, judging by my limited viewing I wouldn't mind him here as our 3/4 CB, could be the steal of the decade if he reaches the heights I feel he can.

Please dont send him on loan.

I hope this year JM no longer has to rely on pragmatism to win the majority of the games, and if that's the case, we should really be able to play him during the season.

Last year JM rarely rotated the squad, even during the tough Christmas stretch he kept the same player in the line-up.

I'd like to think with a cohesive core and the signings to fix our issues, he has the freedom/confidence to 'do a Varane with Zouma'

If he impresses the boss.

Thats not just with Zouma but with Ake/RLC and any other youngin JM deems fit for 1st team action.

I don't remember when was the last time our player got such an interview then went on loan. Personally I hope he stays with us this season, plenty of chance for him to shine.
