Leon Bailey

He's a tremendous player and I think he's a Chelsea fan. . He was playing as a wingback at the beginning of the season but thankfully he's been reverted back to his original position as a winger.

 We have to pull out all the stops to try and sign him. Not like I trust this club to do so but he's one of the absolute best young players in the world.

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.

A couple of things he would bring which I think we severely lack (along with a controlling presence in the midfield to dictate the game but I'll leave that for other topics) is raw pace and a direct nature running at players. Hazard and Willian give us it, but in my opinion we need far more of it and some youthful energy in our attack would certainly not be a bad thing.

If Hazard goes in the summer (and I would like to hope that he doesn't) then I would much rather us use his money to buy 2 or 3 players like this then try to go after a direct replacement in their prime. I could see us overpaying vastly for somebody like Mahrez or Zaha and they won't have a chance coming in as a direct replacement for Hazard. At least with a couple of younger players I think the fans would give them a lot more time to adjust and develop over a season or two when you can see the huge potential that they have.

When you talk of these such players you have to keep in mind exactly our potential standing at where we could be come May. The CL is going to be a massive struggle now, our form suggest we wont get close to it, yet we are talking of players like Fekir, Bailey and keeping Hazard....The harsh reality is, it will be more Drinkwater and Emerson's than these so called potential elite players we talk about.

We are falling from grace quickly, it gets noted and watched upon by these players. Couple that with the mentality and outlook of the board to save money every single window your in dreamland if you think we can attract the players mentioned here.

IMO, the board invests enough. But spending 95-100m on yoko, drinkwater and zappacosta makes all the money spent useless.  Could easily buy half the players for double the price and have much better results.

More and more I see this guy I think we need to sign him. Get it done this summer, regardless of manager, regardless of Hazard/Courtois, regardless of FFP, regardless of fucking anything. He has real lightening pace, a hell of a left foot and can play as a left or right winger, something we've been crying out for god knows how long.

Do Chelsea sign superstars or budding ones anymore?

Thought we just sold them and kept one: Christensen.

Well if you listen to some we have an academy full and some on the loan list who are all 'potential' superstars that should all be starters in our 1st team.

Yeah and lets hope the rumours that he is a Chelsea fan might swing it , tho that really counts for much in modern footie now 2bh , but i'd grasp of any tiny hope at this point

Because he was heavy linked to Bayern:

 

The most reliable journo for Bayern.

And from what I read, a lot of Bayern fans thought before he reported this, Leverkuzen won't sell to Bayern. Don't know what is the story there tbh.

is this a old picture or new picture? 

And where is it taken?

The scout might have just been stalking him and begged him for a picture? aaaf122d9e2b2ec4bfc8fcbfde4e13f3.gif
