After getting this months Chelsea magazine through the post, there's an interview with our 18 year old keeper, Jan Sebek, and after "a run of solid reserve team displays" he's earned himself a squad number and, towards the end of last season, he was third choice keeper.

It's good that we have this young Czech, who's actually been tipped "the next Petr Cech", but what's happening with Rhys Taylor?

All the signs were there in the Reserve games that he would jump the queue (see Lest We Forget thread) - he's a big lad with a big future!

Just to clarify, will he be second choice behind Cech, or third behind Hilario?

I really like Hilario, but I think I'm the only one...

I don't know if Hilario gets contract-renewal. If he do i think he will be 2nd and Sebek 3rd. I like Hilario too but it's the age...

As long as he's the right side of 35 and willing to sit on the bench and stay sharp, it's not really an issue with a keeper, especially if we have this Sebek kid as well as Rhys Taylor getting good.

I think Hilario will be good for at least one more season with one of the youngsters as the third choice. Hilario's done alright when he's played, so I don't see a problem with us going into the new season with him as our back up keeper. Sure, he's no Carlo, but not many teams can afford to have a top keeper like Carlo on the bench.

He also has a STUPIDLY hot wife/girlfriend. Didn't spot her this year at the Blackburn game, but I remember after last season's last game, when all the WAGs came out, there was a lot of talent, but his other half was comfortably the hottest.

Well played sir.

Not that this is a reason to keep him, mind, but i just thought i'd mention it.

Blues poised to land Sebek

Chelsea are set to complete the signing of teenage goalkeeper Jan Sebek, according to the player's agent.

Sebek joined the Blues on trial in 2007 but struggled to adapt to life away from the Czech Republic.

The 18-year-old returned to his homeland but was offered the chance to again impress at Stamford Bridge last year.

Upon his return to West London, Sebek was handed the chance to represent the club's reserve side and he kept a clean sheet versus their Arsenal counterparts.

"I can confirm that Sebek is going to sign a professional contract with Chelsea on 2nd July," Sebek's agent, Pavel Zika, told deniksport.cz.

Sebek said: "It is a dream come true for me. I had been playing football at Tachov until I was 15 and I could not imagine that I would be going elsewhere then.

"After moving to Viktoria Plzen and a first half-year I earned my first international call-up and then the Chelsea offer came."

From Sky Sports

I never knew he was on his 'second trial' at the club last season? Anyway, great news an it seems we wont be investing in silly options like Turnbull who was not even first-choice for the relegated Middlesborough!
