I do not read too much into today's game. James I thought was ok in the main though, that said I think this season will have James as RB2 with Dave as RB1 but that was to be expected. Further, I predict Mount to start quite a lot of games alongside Harvetz.

Kounde for me is the most future center-back in world football. He is only 22 years old and has been playing in the elite since he was 17. He started as a right-back but went on to play as a center-ba

Disagree, too risky to sign him based on a months form.

But ultimately we don't know how much his performances are due to the momentum and/or surprise package. Coming to Chelsea as a number 1 is a different ball game to his run in the Arsenal side where he could only have won.

Arsenal fans do not want him out. Look at Twitter. Some are furious that Arsenal are willing to sell him. Leno came in for 25 million Euros and is a bigger name than Martinez.
Martinez wants to leave because he wants to be no. 1 and he has shown his insane potential in PL. Not Eredivisie, not Ligue 1 He showed it in Pl. I do not see any real worrying weakness.

Its the game sample thats too small.

Onana had 10/10 season in eredivisie last year, but only about 7/10 this year.

Maybe Martinez is top GK, maybe it was just a run.

I have far more doubts over Martinez than some seem to on here. 

There has to be question marks that three managers at Arsenal have now considered him nothing better than a backup, and it's hardly like he's gone out on loan and been successful either. He's just about to turn 28 and he's barely played 50 games in his career. In a top flight that number drops to about 20. 

We're talking about a seriously untested player here. He had a good end of season at Arsenal, but any player can hit a purple patch. Even Kepa looked half decent for stretches in his first season. 

For me though he has to play more games to be considered.

I normally agree that it is too early to judge as he has not been no.1 for long, but he literally looks real deal. Another fantastic game today. He catches everything too and reminds me of Neuer. Completely commands the goal and is huge. Makes himself big. I think after today, Arteta definitely will not be selling him and will make him no.1 choice. Was so commanding and that was a big call which paid off. Martinez has everything. Leno is a good shot stopper but error prone.

I think this could backfire badly. 2/3rds of squad brand new, plenty of cash spent and we will never hear again about Tomori, Tammy, Odoi, RLC, Mount; at least not in as starting players...

RLC is done as a top level player. His injury wrecked him. Tammy never was starting material. Mount and CHO (who also looks done rn but at least has age on his side) will start plenty of games. Tomori remains to be see . We only bought types of players we need and we also have here was a lot of outflux so I don’t mind at all. And the last thing this match was is and indication for the success of our transfer business

If any of the youth is good enough they will play. Even as backups they could establish themselves as players here.

But we are Chelsea ffs, we are not happy to finish top4 every season.

I rate James and CHO but if they perform like today how long we would need to wait for them? Azpi is still better than James.

Tammy is what he is and that is not good enough. I do not see much place for improvements either. Same with Mount, he is not going to become suddenly some creative force.

So no point in overplaying youth just for the sake of it.

Is this realy bs people believe?

Was Sancho good enough? Because he looks pretty damn good to me. Yet City decided to buy Mahrez and Silva instead of giving chance to Sancho.

Yea he would play sure. Maybe a game every 100 years. But he wouldnt develop like he did in Bvb. 

This crap about if he is good he will play is worlds biggest load of crap. Lets say Odoi plays well. Will Ziyech be benched? Kai? Puli? Never. It would take Odoi to play 10-20 games in row to leave any sort of mark. One game wont change shit. And only if someone gets injured, he will get those 10+ games. Sancho at the time wasnt "good enough" to play so Pep didnt play him. But you dont judge them on now, but on 1,2, 5 years from now. Can Odoi be great player then? Yes. What does he need to achieve? Faith and playtime as in first 11, week in and out. Will we do that? No because we forked 200m on others.

So no, playtime here and there with side role isnt gonna make CHO or anyone else here a worldbeater.

The difference between CHO and Sancho is that CHO is part of the first team squad, getting game time and now is arguably next in line on either flank behind Pulisic and Ziyech. He'll get opportunities throughout the season and he has to step up and take them. He isn't going to be simply handed them because he has a good reputation at youth level. The top clubs just won't do that. It's difficult to come in and out and try to make an impression but that is what he has to do, and then either gets the fortune of a run of games due to injuries or forces his way into the team. 

Sancho wasn't even getting a sniff at City, and was well out of the picture.

Wasnt Sancho just 17 when he left? Odoi at 17 wasnt playing for us either.

Its more like Foden situation now. Silva left. So everyone expects Foden to step up. Is he great player? No. But could be. City could still throw a bag of money and sign established midfielder. Which puts Foden back to not just the bench, but guaranteed place on bench with game here and there. See the difference?

Odoi is same. Pedro and Willian left. Odoi could step up. But instead, we signed Ziyech who will keep him out. Lets not kid ourselves. Even a couple bad games from Ziy and couple good from Odoi wont make Odoi a starter here. Just like when Rudiger came back, Tomori was warming the bench. Sure Tomori wasnt great when he came on but thats the thing. You dont play for long periods, sure you will be rusty. Then next game the star will already start the game. And you will get chance later, rusty again. Rinse and repeat.

Same is with Mount. If Kai gets here, Mount wont be a starter. Maybe he will get game on wings, and another deeper, but he is AM. Will certainly not develop like he would playing every game as AM. 

Its like when we brought Lamps, we also brought Zidane and tell Lamps he will get the chance. Never. 

Sad thing is that players like Odoi, Mount at one point in future would bleed for the club being ours. Kai and others might be world stars, but I doubt they will. Times when foreigners like Drogba gave 120% are long gone with the new spoiled generation. Also Kai could decide to move to Real in few years. Mount even if he became star wouldnt. We would have to pay yes, but they would stay for the club. Foreigners are more likely to dream of Real and Barca etc.

He was really young when he left. So young that he played in the U17 World Cup after joining BVB. Also, to be fair, City had a more powerful squad then than we have now. In other words, a more difficult squad for a youngster to force his way into.

You've destroyed your own argument mentioning Lamps. He had a world cup winning CM sign the very same summer as him and two years later Makelele and Veron.

If they're destined to be great player's they'll embrace the competition like their manager did.

He will have more than enough minutes for a 19 year old. There's more ways to develop a player than starting them every game god sends,for example, at the same age CHO is now, Xavi was on less first team appearances while Pedro, Puyol and Busquets were still awaiting their debut, they turned out ok.

Infact, foreign teams do tend to by inlarge take a more staggered approach (Dortmund aside), the desperation to make teenagers bonafide starters immediately is more an English (club) thing, that's why everyone freaked out and couldn't properly grasp the context when Sarri said it will take a few years until Callum is fully ready to start week in week out.

In hindsight, Sarri was bang on the money although if it wasn't for that injury, I truly believe Odoi had that special aura and ability about him to go full steam into stardom. I'm literally praying to the footballing Gods that this version of Odoi we are currently witnessing is down to confidence rather than an apparent loss of pace and acceleration.

Honestly I think his "fall" has been wildly exaggerated personally.

He had a nightmare today but has recently faced the two best teams in Europe and didn't look out of place, infact I thought he was great at Anfield, went a bit under the radar because of Pulisic though.

Yea, he had a decent game against them tbf.. it's just that loss of acceleration and the fearlessness to take players on isn't there at the moment. The momentum of his growth has completely stalled and understandably so. Just annoying as fuck man.

Was it Petit? He wasnt even in same position. Neither were Makelele or Veron being creative midfileders. So no, this wasnt Lamps direct competition. Lamps was at the time our main choice.

He was brought as THE signing. In case of Odoi or Mount; Kai and Ziyech are the signings who will start. 

I mean what do people think? Are you trying to believe this is gonna work and our youth will flourish?

Mount played almost all games last season and he was good. The CLUB then decided we need to spend 100m in his position. And 40m on RW where Odoi could easily play. And 60m where Tammy could play. 

Its clear arent youth isnt trusted enough if the board went and splashed 200m on new arrivals.

Kai is biggest AM talent in the world. But yes sure, the club believes in Mount so much, he will definately play ahead if he is good enough😄

The only way our youth will play isnt if they play well, but if these new stars flop. 

Liverpool could splash millions on new RB but they stuck with Trent. If they bought expensive RB who would perform, it wouldnt matter if Trent was good in cup game here and there. Big game and that new reliable expensive RB will get picked 9/10 times.

What are you people smoking...we had good go with the youth, but its over. We will be better team now for sure. Kai is better than Mount. Werner over Tammy etc. But we wont have youth core. These players wont be big players for us. They will be good rotation options, but never key players.

That is unless new signings flop or get injury prone.
