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.

Other than most wingers he can cross but he still lacks a lot. ONly marginal contributions today. Not quite the level Hazard hat before he joined us. was lucky not to get sent off but unlucky not to score with a freekick.

You won't find many wingers ever at the level Hazard was prior to coming here. He was a truly special talent. Neymar and Mbappe are the only ones that compare in recent times.

I have to disagree. Bailey is much younger than either and plays in a better league. He is faster than both and probably physically more robust. Even when he has an unlucky game like yesterday he will still try and impose himself upon the game, whilst the other two usually disappear from games when they have an off-day (I admit i have not seen that much of fekir so i could be wrong in his case). Sure fekir and maybe even lemar are the more accomplished players but I see way higher potential in Bailey. He reminds me of young Salah but stronger and more composed than Salah was at this age. I told you it was a mistake to sell Salah, now by buying Bailey we have the chance to make it undone.

I cant shake feeling Bailey would be such typical Chelsea signing like Tibo, Salah, KDB,..were. Less hyped, but very talented player that will probably end up super player.

He made big leap since december though and there came lot of interest and price went double, so maybe he doesnt belong in that ''less known'' category anymore, but we were interested long before.

Would love to get him, Iit would be nice to buy a young player with genuine high potential.

Haven't seen him play.  but his name comes up on this article:

https://statsbomb.com/2018/02/taking-em-on-digging-deeper-with-dribbles/

Digging deeper in to dribble statistics.  He's 3rd on the list of Passes + shots after a dribble takes them in to the box.

Take a guess at who 1 an 2 are.

Well, #1 is so far ahead of the field, and probably not a surprise.

Such a fantastic talent. Obviously keep a huge eye on him because I am Jamaican myself. If he keeps level headed can see him surpassing Sterling and being a really top, top player. He is bloody electric and has everything. Pace, power/strength, dribbling and his technique is brilliant as evident by video above. He is capable of scoring long range screamers.

do you think he's a bit like Robben what some Germans are saying?

If he's to be compared to players, Robben looks a fine comparison, but Ronaldo's probably more accurate; from 3/4 seasons ago. Difference being Ronaldo & Bailey seem to offer far more power in their shots and far less close ball control.

Robben as godly as he can be, I'd never expect to carry a team. Bailey probably has more chance of being that player who inspires consistently, like Hazard.

Regardless who he's most like, these aren't bad names to be compared with.
