Can't believe people are berating someone who's clearly very happy to be here. He's genuinely ecstatic about it. Excited for him. 

Could be just the tonic we need,hope he has some luck and hits the ground running.

Haha it's really hard not to like the guy on a fan level - He'll probably be a hit around SB like Ramires was.

Enthusiasm like that can have a positive effect on the game mentality of that player too, so hey good luck kid.

Kinda puzzling comment to be honest....  Is there anyone here who wants Pato do fail?! I truly hope people can tell the difference between what one wants versus what he believes will take place.

Because all comments have pretty much only shown what the reality is - exclusively based on his recent, and not so recent, poor performances.

BTW, I for one did not know that being happy, and wanting to join chelsea, were the only requirements really... :) If so, we might as well widen the rage of players we consider in a very dangerous way... pub players here we come! Just be happy! Hey the tens of thousands of dollars you gonna earn weekly might do the trick anyway... :)

Decent article on him. Please don't worry, I know it's Bleacher Report but it's quite a well written piece.

That was indeed really good! Thanks!

I've grown up supporting gremio, blues from the south of Brazil . A cold (er than the rest of Brazil) region and a club which historically plays a more pragmatic style - prob from German influence. Ah yeah Pato is originally from gremio's arch rivals internacional.

with that out of that out of the way, as soon as I laid eyes on Pato I thought he was a Romario, a Ronaldo9 something like. At that moment I began rooting for him to truly achieve his potential, because frankly I just wanted to see what he would do on the pitch. Then the injuries came and the rest is history.

I no longer believe that he has that same high ceiling From a Chelsea POV it may still be a win-win situation. But that potential genius is gone.

It may be difficult for someone like me, who has glimpsed greatness in Pato, to aim lower and expect him to potentially become "only" a good player. Perhaps my expectations remain too high and I should just accept that that ship has sailed.

I feel exactly the same. That hope will always be there.
