That's just not a way you should go about judging talent...

Yeah... I wonder if you would say the same about Sterling who happened to be born in Jamaica

Decent?  That would be massive.

Leon Bailey has revealed that he rejected the chance to move to Chelsea because he did not want to rush his career, according to a report on the Liverpool Echo

14 games, 1 goal, crazy drama with JA national team. Yep, his career at BayArena is looking sparkling.

His output so far this season is making Willian look Salah 2017-18 like. Huge disappointment so far. Leverkusen would be in relegation battle if not for Kai Havertz. Still may be. I think their manager is shit, given the insane young talent that squad has.

I would not be shocked to see Heiko Herrlich get the sacking by the holidays if he keeps up the turgid pace. He has crazy talent at his disposal and yet sits in 13th place in an 18 team league.

Bayer Leverkusen bring in Peter Bosz to replace Heiko Herrlich

The links we have to some players last longer than some TV series!

We've been linked with Bailey getting on 2 years now - and victimpool.

Just one of many that we wont sign but still be linked to the next year!

Think if we sell CHO we might go for Bailey?! 

Chelsea favourites to agree deal for pacy Bundesliga forward

With Willian still here he will still be on the bench most of his time.

Bailey is a left-footed inverted RW, CHO is clearly better on the LW.

With Eden clearly leaving so it seems its a replacement we should be looking for NOW.

ATM prefer Hirving Lozano at LW, unless Bailey comes as backup RW (instead of Malcom) at a fair price. Bailey would struggle at LW IMHO.

My big 'get it done' post had

LW Pulisic

LW Lozano

RW Suso (due to Nicolas Pepe crazy price of £72m set by Lille)

RW Malcom 

Malcom plus cash deal for Willian looks dead, so in my actual true wish list (assuming Eden and CHO leave)

I would love our wingers to end up after summer as

LW Pulisic

LW Lozano

RW Nicolas Pepe (get Lille to come to £55 to £60m)

RW Leon Bailey

RW/LW backup  Pedro 

Add in Jovic and Piątek both (or just Icardi)

Tammy as 3rd striker (if just Icardi comes then I guess keep Giroud and let him battle it out with Tammy)

that would be a wicked front attacking 3, stronger than we have now, even with Eden and CHO leaving.

Well you know I'm all in on all that lot. I THINK too that Loz MIGHT be the better starter too but I'm happy with Pully.

I agree.  As long as we have an actual plan for how we are going to fit him in.  

A good start woukd be to decrease the influence his cadre of Jamaican clingers-on and the dodgy part of his family has on the lad. They have not served him well.

Whichever one is better atm gets the start in my book. That would entirely be up to Sarri.

Chelsea Eyeing A Move For This Bundesliga Winger: What Will He Add To Sarri’s Team?

https://the4thofficial.net/2019/01/chelsea-eyeing-a-move-for-this-bundesliga-winger-what-will-he-add-to-sarris-team/

According to a recent report by the Mirror, Chelsea have enquired about the availability of Bayer 04 Leverkusen wide man Leon Bailey. In a recent interview with SportBild, as translated by the Mirror, the Jamaican’s step-father Craig Butler, who is also his agent, shed some light on the player’s future and said, “I am very happy that this change has come about. Leon did not develop under Heiko Herrlich,” 

“For Leon it is very important that he enjoys football, he lives alone in Germany, the family is in Jamaica, and if Leon does not have fun, it kills him.

“Top clubs have come forward, Real and Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Roma, and in recent months they have been surprised that Leon plays so seldom, wondering why a top league player like him is suddenly sitting on the bench.”

I rather sign Bailey than Pulisic

I doubt either are going to happen, Willian sure sounds like he is staying.

Pulisic and Bailey, who would have thought. 

Time to buy him this summer. Or even if we want now!
