  1. Ah goody, an English journeyman 3rd keeper ... following on in the fine traditions of Lennie Pidgeley, Ross Turnbull and Rob Green 🙂
  2. From the Dortmund perspective, surely they'd have to be insane to wait until 2022 to get half the fee they can get in 2021 ?
  3. I think they are both attacking LOL. Certainly wouldn't see either as a centre back, especially Lamptey. Can't ever recall any pro team with a 5'5" CB 🙂
  4. Probably just down to the lack of midfielders in the travelling party !
  5. We've released/sold plenty of academy graduates who all had their fan champions over the years ... Not an exhaustive list, but 5 minutes on Google and I came up with this lot : Carlton Cole, Ben Sahar, Michael Woods, Scott Sinclair, Franco di Santo, Josh McEachran, Nathaniel Chalobah, Ryan Bertrand, Michael Mancienne, Miroslav Stoch, Jacob Mellis, Patrick Van Aanholt, Jeffrey Bruma, Gael Kakuta, Fabio Borini, Jacopo Sala, John Swift, George Savile, Nathan Ake, Luca Piazon, Tomas Kalas. Kasey Palmer, Charlie Colkett, Izzy Brown, Ola Aina, Kyle Scott, Marcin Bulka, Fikayo Tomori, Tariq Lamptey, Declan Rice, and Marc Guehi. None of these guys were considered the right stuff for the Chelsea first team, and very very few have gone on to prove that original decision wrong (I'd argue Ryan Bertrand has had a decent career at top level, Declan Rice at West Ham/England, probably also include Scott Sinclair, although a lot of it was in Scotland, and Nathan Ake, albeit now warming the Man City bench rather than playing). Tomori, Lamptey and possibly Guehi would be a good bet to make the grade .. we shall see over the next few seasons. The bar is very high to break into the first team at a club like Chelsea, and rightly so.
  6. Livramento to Brighton must mean they are selling Lamptey, as otherwise it doesn't make much sense 🙂
  7. I read that the squad TT has taken to Ireland training camp is the following : Goalkeepers: Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalga, Jamie Cumming, Lucas Bergstrom Defenders: Dujon Sterling, Davide Zappacosta, Trevoh Chalobah, Jake Clarke-Salter, Malang Sarr, Matt Miazga, Marcos Alonso, Baba Rahman Midfielders: Ross Barkley, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Conor Gallagher, Lewis Baker Wingers: Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Charly Musonda, Hakim Ziyech Forwards: Tammy Abraham, Ike Ugbo, Armando Broja Given that only 5 of the 19 outfield players were in the first team squad last season, it will be very interesting to see how many silk purses TT can come up with in a squad of (perceived) sow's ears from the loan army ...
  8. Apart from maybe Declan Rice, I can't think of one academy player that has left and gone on to look decent either for a top club or a top international side ... who have I missed ?
  9. Best of luck to him in Italy ! I loved every minute of his association with CFC, as clearly did he ! 🙂
  10. Now that Giroud has left for Milan, our leading scorer at the club is Tammy Abraham with 30 career CFC goals ... ahead of Marcos Alonso and Michy Batshuayi who both have 24 ... 🙂
  11. Atletico certainly have a huge weakness for re-signing ageing players who were previously successful at the club ... Torres and Costa immediately spring to mind ...
  12. Good luck to him at Palace, except when he plays us LOL
  13. Since Tuchel arrived : And that's with all the forwards mis-firing ... if Tuchel had had the pre-season and the full season then I'd wager we'd have been above City. We did beat them in the FA Cup and CL after all 🙂
  14. Apparently that guy is an Arsenal supporter ... which explains everything quite nicely ... 🙂
