Patrick Bamford

I have no problem with buying up a bunch of youth and loaning them out. What I do have a problem with is not buying the young talents that have already established themselves when we had a chance to in the summer and again in this window. We have been way to passive and we might miss out on CL next year because of it.

Whoever thought Mata and Meireles would solve all our problems is not too bright...

Me neither, what frustrates me is their is work to do on the squad to qualify for champs league again. Yes we have been winning, but we are playing awful predictable football.

Heard Graham Hunter, on TalkSport, say Jose wants to come back to Chelsea for unfinished business (IE the Champs League). Do you think AVB wouldn't mind being a well paid scout again?

Mata has been good, I didn't say he wasn't but him alone as the plan to challenge for the title plus Meireles who was a desperation buy after our big plans for Modric fell through, was a very weak and ill-conceived plan.

I like Mata as a player for sure, he's clever, can pick out a pass, has a great first touch and a good passer but lets not get carried away. Mata is not a do it on his own player or a big time goal scorer. Mata is a link up player that uses passing and movement off the ball to make things happen. He's not Bale, he's not Walcott, he's not Robben. And thats ok, but for Chelsea to think that getting Mata and sticking him into a team with players who don't share his style of play was going to work is short-sighted.

1920: I told you at 1830 it was one to watch out for, and it appears I was right. BBC Radio Nottingham understands that Chelsea are set to sign 18-year-old striker Patrick Bamford from Nottingham Forest for about £1.5m. Bamford has only played two first-team games but has been in prolific form in the FA Youth Cup this season, and Chelsea were one of a number of clubs to take note.

funny because AVB in his post game press interview said no more new players in the window, but the the club sign this kid for 1.5 mill then send him off to the youth set up,

nice to see the 1st team manager in the loop, feel bad for AVB must be frustrating dealing with CFC board and rest of the cronies and hangers on (agents included)

He is going straight into the youth team, as we have loaned a few of our lads out. He is also top scorer in the FAYC. If he is signed for the youth team, then would AVB know about him coming?

Welcome

Also, this should now be in the General, or Youth Team section?

Dalglish said they werent signing anyone, then they signed a youth keeper. Fergie said they werent signing anyone, then they signed some young Swiss player from City. I suppose they arent in the loop either.

Knowing them two, they were probably drunk.

Connor Wickham went to Sunderland for 7m and Oxlade-Chamberlain cost Arsenal at least 12m, maybe up to 15. Obviously Bamford might not develop at the same rate as those two since he will be playing reserve football instead of every day in the Championship, but 1.5m seems like a steal for a highly rated English youngster.

Hope he progresses well and forms a nice partnership with Feruz.

Have to admit I feel bad for Forest, having to sell a promisng youngster for very little money.

I wouldn't worry. We'll probably sell him back for half the price in three years.
