Franco DiSanto and Branislav Ivanovic

Franco's been good for the reserves but what about this Ivanovic guy..He played for Serbia last night. Anyone saw it? Was he any good?

Is Franco close on breaking in the bench of the first team? To do it he needs to be picked ahead of Shevchenko and Pizarro...

He is known as the future Diego Maradona by some Argentinians,though differed by height while comparison. Di Santo has looked a class act in the Chelsea reserve team since joining.

He sounds promising. Would like to see him in action soon. I think Argentinians know their football but they have given the Maradona-monkey to many players to carry with disappointing results.

di santo needs time, he is only 18 so don't expect to see him anywhere near the first team for a while yet...but he has got off to a good start...as for ivanovic, neil barnett explained on chelsea tv last week that he was out injured for six weeks not long after he joined and having not played since november in the first place (cos of end of russian season), he's basically doing pre-season training now...let's face it we're not going to throw him in now unless we have an injury crisis...in saying that we've been fairly blessed for a few weeks so expect him to be playing against fenerbahce!

Franco di Santo has a great deal going for him in terms of height and hustle, but most of all he is gaining experience at a rare old rate for someone of his age. You also have to admire the kid for travelling halfway round the world to join us when it would have been easier to learn his trade a lot nearer home. From what I’ve seen of him he has genuine pace for someone so tall, but is more Crespo-like than Maradona. The thought of having a player with Hernan’s touch, plus a bit of added speed, has to be a very pleasing one.

But he was one hell of a player, his family hated it in England, but I think he really enjoyed playing in the Prem. It looked as if he was torn about not being able to play. He was a great striker, and had such incredible skill, I am sad that we never really got the best out of him. But what he showed in his time here was inspiring.

It also made AC Milan losing to the scoucers even harder. Crespo looked so thrilled when he scored in the final...and then he lost....to the scoucers!!!!!!
