Scott Sinclair On Loan?


biru

Recommended Posts


I don't know if we have enough depth in the squad to let him go on loan currently.

We are still regularly playing with two wide men - so it is two out of Malouda, Joe Cole and Kalou. And both Joe Cole and Kalou are carrying niggling injuries at the moment.

Surely Sinclair is the next option if two of these guys weren't available.

Well Sinclair was in the reserves last night whilst Stoch and Di Santo were in Romania. To be honest, having watched him in the reserves a few times, he is nowhere near first team level. He is quick and tricky but he tends to run down a lot of blind alleys and I don't think he would consistently trouble Premiership defences.

Ethical, he's not in the Euro a or b squad due to the guide lines and alos probably down the pecking order...

at the end of the day you dont get games you dont get better... as ive said before, theo was less than impressive when he started at arsnenal... wenger working with him showing faith in him, ironing out the floors that a 19 year old is bound to have and look at him now...

Sell sinclare now and let him get on with his career i say.

I watched Sinclair a few times last season while he was out on loan at Palace and as unfortunate as it is to say, he's just not good enough at this moment in time to force his way into the Chelsea side no matter how many chance's he gets to do so

He deserves his chance, that's for sure, but I do think that he won't make it at CFC and have thought so for a while.

Hope he does get a few games though and proves me wrong, but he won't feel god about the situation at the moment, and I don't blame him.

The reason he is not in the squad is because of his periods out on loan last season means he does not qualify under any of the youth options which Di Santo and Stoch do.

As it's been for many years now we're a buying club not a producing club, the pressure of breaking even has seen to that.

We're a buying club not a producing club. Beautifully put Tim.

And so very, very true.

All top clubs are buying clubs. How many home grown players are there in the Arsenal, Man U or Liverpool squads? Or Aston Villa, Portsmouth, Tottenham, Wigan, Sunderland, Hull, Man City squads?

If you manage to get even one player through then that is quite a bonus. Man U have Neville, Giggs and Scholes still but no-one more recently. We've got Terry. Liverpool Gerrard and Carjacker. Arsenal don't have any.

I'm sure that the club and Scolari would be delighted if any of our reserves/youth were able to force their way in to the first team, but Sinclair is no more homegrown than Fabregas is for Arsenal.

Ok, well let's move away from the oft quoted phrase of "home grown"and look at it another way.

How many of those clubs are happy to give youth/reserves a first team run-out against lesser opponents or in the more minor competitions? United? Yes. Arsenal? Most definately. That's important and, IMO, the right thing to do for several compelling reasons:

1. There is only so much you can learn from watching these youngsters in training and reserve team matches. As I said last week, there has to come a point where the top performers get the chance to prove they can cut it at the highest level.

2. In terms of a learning experience for these youngters, a taste of first team football is invaluable.

3. It gives them a realistic goal to aim for. Therefore, it is a huge motivator.

4. It would prove to the press, (and indeed the football watching public in general), that Chelsea FC don't just pay lip-service to the idea of bringing through youth players. We actually do give them a chance.

5. It would perhaps persuade other highly talented youngsters to bypass other clubs who are touting for their services and plump for us. For example, if we had any kind of track record of giving youngsters an opportunity, maybe Walcott would have choosen us rather than Le Arse

Hmmm, palace fans fell in love with him, although they do also say he had a mare in the play off's but every player had bad games..

and ok he has only ever done it at P'bourough, QPR and palace all three of which he has been adored and ok the stndard isbt prem, that goes with out saying.

but untill he is given outings in a chelsea shirt we will never know.

Ive also mentioned that when he did get games last season, against liverpool and brentford in the cup he was one of the best players on the pitch and the argument that it was only brentford goes down the pan as many where also declaring it as lampards return to form game!

Its all academic any way because malouda has pictures of every manager in the world in comprimising positions and will never be droped!

What a waste of time and a talent. One day he will walk out of the club after 1 loan too many.

but on the flip side he hasnt progressed anywhere enar enough to make the first team. the onus is on the player as much as the club...
