Your damn right it does, perfect example of that....We have just sent out a bloke on loan to Dortmund who is actually better at social media than he as at football.

Social media only rules in the wrong hands.

Marcos Alonso to Hudson-Odoi: “Bayern Munich? We are Chelsea, another great team, the Premier League is the most competitive league in the world, I don’t know why someone would go to Bayern Munich” Ha

Callum Hudson-Odoi has more assists in 59 minutes than Willian has since October.

At last a manager speaking clearly, straight and not dodging questions.

Have to admit it is annoying with all the attention whoring. Glad I've managed to stay away from it and have no active social media accounts.

It wouldn't be an over exaggeration to say that Hudson-Odoi is currently more effective than any other winger we have based on his cameo role against Bournemouth.

 

His pace is electriying. Ball control is second to none and seems to have an intelligent footballing brain. The future is very bright for this young man.

Sell one of Pedro or Willian and give the spot to one of our youngsters. Hudson, Musonda, Boga.. whoever, can't keep ignoring the talents. There is no point in signing average semi-established players to block them, waste of money unless the signing is of far superior quality. Throw one in the deep end and see what sticks, we have never actually tried that, but in these times it makes more sense than ever.

Hudson-Odoi was exciting, a breath of fresh air, we need that. I think he had the first shot on goal for us, two in quick succession even. Nobody yesterday showed that kind of drive that he injected, and we had Hazard on the pitch. Something to think about... I'm tired of signing middle of the road players that don't elevate us and couldn't give less shit about the club. At least our boys would play their hearts out.

Having a very good game against Lincoln City for Chelsea U21's. On sky Sports 1 now.

I'll say it time and time again, he is the real deal.

Yeah thought he was excellent. Hopefully he can get in squad again V West Brom.

He has something we sorely lack within our squad. Raw pace. It scares defenders (just ask Cahill) and pushes teams back and pins them in. Recently teams haven't been scared to press us high because we haven't got enough pace and directness getting in behind.

He certainly deserves to be within the first team squad and an option from the bench. He offers a 3rd choice striker option which should be far more effective than Hazard and one of the deeper or wider options too.

Hudson-Odi as a striker could actually work although I think his talents are best suited to the wing. This guy actually has amazing footwork. I haven't been this hyped about a player since I first saw Ronaldo. You can just see when somebody is special, it oozes out of them. I love watching them perform even if they don't play for us.

I agree. Certainly in his formative years, he is better placed playing deeper as opposed to the pressure of playing as the lone striker but I think he could develop to play that position also.

In the current situation though with Morata out, he should definitely be first choice backup for the striker spot behind Giroud.

Unfortunately that kind of logical thinking is a rare sighting at Stamford Bridge.

That could change with attacking minded manager who could recognize attacking potential in those youngsters. Just look at Conte tactics - 7 defensive minded players and hoping that Hazard can produce something. There is no place for young attacking players in this system...

I feel exactly the same. It is crazy that this guy has just turned 17 in November. What we have seen from him is not too special compared to cameos of other academy products but you have to put it in perspective that usually our academy graduates first start for us when they are their early 20ies.But Hudson Odoi looks just as comfortable on the ball, confident on the field and particularly in his body than talents 4,5 years older than him. Usually 17 year olds no matte rhow quick or talented are lanky lads still moving a bit awkward. Even Ronaldo at 17 was a scrawny kid appearing to fall over with every stepover. Hudson-Odoi looks like he has been playing pro football for years already. I only hope he does not grow even bigger which might affect his agility. I really hoep we for once do not fuck this up.

Him and Ampadu are a level above what we have seen from the youth that have gotten debuts without loans.
