Bates: Taiwo got it wrong with Chelsea move

Leeds United chairman Ken Bates says Tom Taiwo's family was wrong to take their son to Chelsea.

He told the Telegraph: "So many players are poached bybig clubs and disappear. The parents have a heavy responsibility tothink about their son's long-term career ahead of short-term gains. TomTaiwo [taken from Leeds by Chelsea] is on loan at Carlisle. No disrespect to Carlisle but it is not quite what he thought he would get when he signed for Chelsea.

"Frank Arnesen [Chelsea's sporting director] is supposed to have spent over £30 million and not one has come through. The problem is that in Chelsea's position they need the instant finished article, so they go out and buy.''

Not one has come through hey Batesy? Erm, look again pal. Michael Mancienne has made a name for himself and has come through our ranks. Sam Hutchinson has come through, . As has Fabio Borini and Jeffrey Bruma,

Wish people would think before they speak.

No player has come through as a starter for Chelsea. And if Borini and Bruma count as players who have "come through" - then Arsenal have had 20+ players coming through in the past few seasons.
