    Yeah, same.  Here's a link showing Broja has joined Vitesse (and I think scored in their first pre season game).

    All I can see on Anjorin is him signing for the club on a new 5 year deal back in June.  No mention of a loan

    Those top speed stats are nonsense... but... as a Leicester fan I can put this "slow" stuff to bed. He's not, he's clearly one of the quickest in our team and not a single Leicester fan has ever accused him of being slow or his pace being an issue.

    To the first bolded point: price should only be an issue for us fans if it directly impacts the team by restricting our spending elsewhere, which with Chilwell, it’s obviously not. We’re still spending at least 150m in addition to the fee for him.
    To the second bolded point: that is literally all you’ve done for weeks, written him off before he’s even officially signed for Chelsea, let alone had a minute on the pitch.

    Firstly, I would point out that there is far more to a player's pace than their top speed - even more so when you're only taking into account one instance. It's pretty much a statistical irrelevance. I have vague memories of Arsenal fans jokingly claiming that Dennis Bergkamp was the fastest player in the league based on a similar list produced years ago. It was plain to see he wasn't even the fastest player in the Arsenal front line!
    Secondly, this is a very good signing. It fills an obvious hole in the squad, and while there may be questions around his decision-making at times (mainly in the final third), he is clearly a far superior all-round left back than the options we currently have.
    He's young, he's good, and he's an obvious starter in a position in which we've had problems since Ivanovic left. Plus he's English, so he's used to playing with idiots, which is a bonus for us.

    The negativity around this signing is ridiculous, and lets call a spade a spade, its all down to him not being a shiny new twitter favourite foreigner with some certain "fans".

    My thoughts on Ben Chillwell
    Is Chelsea better with him in the squad?
    Yes
    Does the price tag prohibit us from making other moves?
    Evidently Not
    Sounds like a good move for us then

    Bloody hell he's not that bad, he's not even bad. 
    He was a part of a team with the 5th best defence in the league and a team that finished 5th (would have been better but for injuries and Rodgers negativity), he was an important part of it also and we missed him when he was out. He's got a lot of positives about his game, my one major issues being a poor decision or a poor cross when in a great position, but honestly that's something that can be worked on and with a better set of players around him, he'll have far more options, and the pressure won't be on to find a perfect ball to one person in the box. 
    I think I saw a few people saying he's not quick enough, I don't know what planet they are on. He's one of our quicker players and pace has never, ever been an issue for anyone here. He's able to get past players with ease and can run all day. 
    When he first broke into the team he made some silly errors and would play dangerous balls across the box and stuff like that. But he's cut that out and seems to learn from his mistakes. 
    He's a good player that I think we'll miss as an individual. But the money can probably be used to strengthen several areas and improve the team, just like the Maguire and Mahrez money did. 
    Put it this way... is he better than the left backs at Arsenal, Man U, Man City, Spurs. Yes he is.

    I still think that if you put Kepa in front of a decent defence, he’ll do ok. He was ok under Sarri. I know he can improve in certain areas but our defence offers him no protection.

    I think the point is how many times do you need to post Rugulion is better and you prefer him?  I'm pretty sure now you're know as the guy who prefers Regulion, we get it.

    So let me get this straight...
    We're signing a highly rated LB, who is only 23 and will improve, who improves our first 11, who fits into our style of play, who was also the managers first choice and we've managed to knock 20-30 million of the asking price
    The amount of negativity in this thread is embarrassing
