Yep.

Still think for Colwill, who’s only 18 I think, another loan or two on top of this one will be paramount for his development.

Another who like Broja (even with the Lukaku situation), theres absolutely no need to rush him into being a Chelsea player for the sake of it. Another 18 months minimum of regular first team football for him, as a young CB particularly, is more essential than replacing Sarr as a player who sits on the bench/plays once every 4-6 weeks.

Sarr’s still got plenty growth in him too as a player and all in all I think the more he’s played he will come on. Not expecting him to be a world beater but for another 12-18 months, a solid, dependable option. 

Yeah, whilst I don't think he is turning into a world beater, he has the biggest quality you want from someone like him in that CB5 role which is commitment.

It's a shame for us that Premier League football isn't suited to Malang. Somewhere like France or Portugal would see the best of him.

Not sure if it's as much Premier League football as it is simply the style of play Tuchel wants us to play which is playing out from the back and being comfortable and confident in ourselves in possession. There have been a few high profile mistakes recently, but in Sarr's case unfortunately he just isn't at a technical level to play this style of game.

It was ok playing against Spurs and he'll play a role against a team that sits back (albeit he then restricts our ability to attack and move the ball quickly because he has to adjust his position to be able to play the ball with his left foot), but anybody that presses him will force him into mistakes and he will quickly be seen as a weak link when he plays if he's expected to play out from the back. Unfortunately Zouma was exactly the same. He was a good defender and serviceable until we started playing out from the back and then his technical ability became a problem.

Not his fault. The technical level was too high for him to be involved. Why wasn't Chalobah considered? Seemed like Sarr was picked for his left-footedness. Wrong call, especially when the CB who played there all year is right footed.

Luton away was the final straw..just pouring vinegar in the wound every time i see him now. 
Colwill can’t come back fast enough!

Yeah so he can be sold like Tomori and Guehi, to buy more trash like Sarr instead

We did not buy him, we snapped him up on a free.

Tomori is doing good in a pub league. Should always take those stats in Serie A with a pinch of salt, because of Lukaku.

I think its definitely unfair to say that. Your effectively ruling out all players in Serie A based on one guy. 

Tomori has been pretty good for AC Milan since going there, playing consistently. Surprise, he’s been ever present this season for them and they are top of the league with only 31 goals against which is joint best with Inter and Napoli.

For me, one of Frank’s biggest mistakes here was not playing him with Thiago Silva more at any point as I think they’d of made a pretty good partnership and he would of learned a lot too. What he lacked in reading of the game at that stage he would of learned and developed playing with Thiago.

I mean why do people think Rudiger has all of a sudden also kicked on massively since TT come in? Thiago is definitely a help and the other guys will undoubtedly be picking things up off him.

Tomori is on the verge of winning defender of the season. 

Last year was Romero and he has looked solid in the Prem.

It's true enough Serie A isnt what it has been, and some players just fit into some leagues better than others. But we have already seen Tomori do well in the Premier League, certainly a lot better than fucking Sarr has.
