    Utter nonsense. It’s been 3 games since Forest, did he really expect to start against City and Madrid?

  2. Boga and Dembele do not have the same level of talent. Implying they're interchangeable is crazy. Just because you played alongside another player at a relative age doesn't mean both players could have had the same career. I'm on the Musonda train too. However he isn't good enough to start ahead of Willian and Pedro just yet. By the end of the season he could be and frankly he should be content with a squad role on a championship team given his lack of experience and resume compared to the other 3 players who play his position. I thought things were going well for him so far

    It staggering how many people seem to think Musonda should be a instant first choice because he had a half decent (and no more) game against Nottingham Forest. Im not denying that Willian isnt playing well (he isnt) but it reminds me of when Katuka came on an played well for 20 mins when we were 4:0 against someone years ago. People on here demanded he be an instant first team player ahead of more established, experienced players. Its just unrealistic. At this stage of the season Musonda would do well to keep working hard and keep his head down. If its still the same come May, then sure,

    I can understand his frustrations. But there is a way to conduct yourself. If he (or anyone else) thought he was suddenly going to become a instant first XI player after a half decent display and a goal against a poor Championship outfit then more fool him.

  5. Sorry, but imo he hasn't done anything yet to warrant a first team start ahead of willian, pedro or hazard. And posting a social media post like that is quite poor as a sporting professional.

    The same powers that be who hired a coach that delivered a leage title that no-one was expecting in his first season ? A coach who sees the players day in day out in traning and know a lot more about his development and attitude than a few lads on the internet, thats for sure.

  8. We can't keep blaming our youngsters for their supposed bad attitude or lack of hardwork or whatever the new narrative is with each new kid. At this point, Musonda deserves to be ahead of Willian in the pecking order without a shadow of doubt. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and trust these youngsters whatever the outcome might be. Apart from players like Messi or young Rooney, you'll hardly find ready made youngsters whom you'll have no doubts about when you throw them in the fire. Personally think it's utterly disgusting how we treat them and at this point, I hope Charly finds a g

  9. Giving playing time to a player on the fringes who has recently outperformed another player getting inconsistent first team minutes. I think that is how progressive management works actually.

    and how bad was willian against city? this club needs to be a meritocracy, if you play badly you get benched. Musonda's last performance was better than Willian's last performance, therefore he should be ahead in the pecking order. I don't agree with him speaking out publicly but the fact is Willian should not be ahead of him in the pecking order after a terrible performance against city.

    Hmmm - a goal and a half-decent performance against a piss-poor Forest side in the league cup means the lad is ready for Barcelona? yeah right!

    Random Rumours

    On the same day that Conte is being linked to a return to manage the Italian national team, Andrea Pirlo has said that he will finish his playing career in the MLS this season and it is rumoured he will join Conte's backroom staff at Chelsea! Poxy papers won't leave us alone. I prefer to believe the second rumour as Pirlo knows Conte very well and would be an ideal replacement for Steve Holland.

    No one has disputed anything you have just said 'lad'. We clearly hire managers to deliver in the short term not build a squad for 5 years down the line. Conte will be gone within the next two years and Musonda will likely be shining like KdB at another top team. His talent is evident, we're just bound to waste it like so many before him.

    To be honest, this post might be actually a little bit right because the way we use our youngsters is wrong. But what he did is not going to change the situation, can become only worse. If he is looking to work hard for his place, then he has to do it by himself, he doesn't need the public for this. Wasn't a smart action by him, doesn't matter if he was talking about Belguim or Chelsea. Also posting it just before Crystal Palace game is stupid, this game actually can be for him. It's not easy to be a youngster Chelsea, in my opinion, we have one of the best prospects from our academy tha

  22. The academy is nothing more than a revenue stream. The powers that be have no interest in bringing through youngsters, regardless of how good they can become. Being so short sighted helps us win in the short term, but you have to wonder how good our team could be a year or so down the line if we actually tried to bring these players through. Real shame about Charly as his talent and drive will take him right to the top.

    strange timing, maybe a disagreement over his contract, or possibly they want him to go out on loan again. I don't buy the argument that we have never made a mistake with an academy/youth product on the basis that none have particularly bitten on the arse so to speak. I came through academies and school of excellence centres myself, and getting the right breaks at the right times, is big part of turning potential into quality. We don't give players the breaks they need at important times in their careers in order to maximise their potential. Christiensen is starting to

    How many times does the club have to f**k up before our fans will stop blaming young players? The reaction on reddit has been disgraceful blaming Charly himself. Let me ask you this, when was the last time a Chelsea player cried when he scored a goal for us?

    Using Kane as an example is akin to saying manager's should get more time because of Ferguson, he is an exception to the rule. For the most part the direction a player is going in is clear at 21. All Chalobah has done is found his natural level. Andreas has had his chances with us, took them and is a fully trusted squad member now, and i don't believe he is better option than even an out of form Willian, that's typical overrate the youngster and undervalue the first teamer syndrome. The same argument was made for Josh when Lamps and co were off form in 2010.

    Is his brother implying he could hit the level of Ronaldo and Messi? The reality is, Charly's talent is undeniable, but he has been nowhere near productive enough on loan at Betis or even his app for us vs Forest despite a well taken goal.

  30. Of course you can also blame him. First line of defence is your attack, he’s just as accountable as everyone else when the throw away decent leads. Also guilty of being a part of an attack that doesn’t convert chances often enough when dominating games/possession.

    Willian

    Mahrez hasnt been getting in the leicester team all the time over the last few months so i would say he is a squad player at present, but if Kante went back to Leicester he would be first name on their team sheet. I just don't see how Mahrez would be an upgrade on a proven chelsea player and proven trophy winner like Willian, I appreciate he is not at his best at the moment, but I think we need to give him a little loyalty, which some on this site don't seem to.

    Our New Stadium

    A small compact stadium is always more of a fortress than a big one. Ours would have the potential to be the most intimidating stadium in Europe (before you add the fans and atmosphere).

  35. What I liked about Damien was, not only his skill and pace, but that he walked off the pitch at the end of the game knowing he'd given his all. Now, we need someone like him now, don't you think?
