question for the edds or any1 who has been watching derby this year im interested how mason mount is progressing and generally just wondering if he's ready for the step up or another loan to derby next season is the likely option hopefully with them been a pl team im sure liverpool would also like if derby got promoted to see how harry wilson would also fair out. anyway what's the overall opinion on mount.

{Ed001's Note - from what I have seen he has not impressed at all, but I have only seen them a few times. They are heavily reliant on Wilson, but Mount seems a bit on the periphery far too much. From the little I have seen, he is far from ready to step up just yet.}

Agree0 Disagree0

cheers edd apreciate the response interesting output as i haven't heard much about him. what's your thought on tammy is he a championship player considering he seems to score goals down there but failed miserably with the swans last year or was he just unluvky to be playing in a poor team. will ruben loftus cheek ever make it at stamford bridge? what's the future hold for cristensen and ampadu.

{Ed001's Note - Abraham needs a chance with a team creating chances before he can be judged. He is defo too good for the Championship.

Not sure about Loftus-Cheek, comes down to having a manager believe in him and play him regularly. He is getting close to make or break time though.

As for Christensen, I expect he will end up leaving but Ampadu I think will eventually be a first choice.}

ampadu looks top class edd doesn't ghe he's calmness on the pitch is refreshing what pressure eh haha.
would love to see some of these lads come through an take spots in starting 11 i think its what we lack. these boys are chelsea through an through came through the youths etc i no we signed ampadu but he still forced his way up d ranks after we signed him. interesting ta see if sarri will trust any of these boys. i think mysekf ed kova and barkley have been awfull why not give rlc that lcm spot or even a 10 role an sit kante an jorginho behind him for protection to allow hin to express himself im sure higuan an hazard an willian would enjoy his presence.

{Ed001's Note - sometimes you have to take a chance on youngsters, even if it is just to give the experienced players a kick up the arse.}

12 Feb 2019 17:08:30
ya i agree edd in what your saying.

{Ed001's Note - cheers.}

Mount is inconsistent, sometimes he looks brilliant and other times whole games will pass him by. He’s got the quality to potentially make it but it’s far too early for him to get into our side.

Since we are talking about youngsters, I have two questions:

1) What do you think of Reece James' progress?

2) Which of our academy players both past and present did you think was the most talented?

{Ed001's Note - Reece James looks ready for regular first team football to me. He has been excellent this season at Championship level.

Depends on how far back you go like! I mean Jimmy Greaves would be in with a shout if you go back far enough I would think. However, of the ones I have seen, on pure talent I would say Hudson-Odoi. He has something that boy.}

12 Feb 2019 21:30:58
Haha, should have mentioned till the Abramovich era only. Personally, even I think CHO is the best we have produced.

I think we both will agree that Reece and Tammy are worthy of being a part of the squad next season, Ed.

{Ed001's Note - definitely. If these players don't stay and train with the squad, and play the odd game or have the odd sub appearance, they will not build up an understanding with their team-mates. Then they really struggle to impress when they do get a chance and they become a liability to the team. It is possible to feed them in and them to become a plus, but it is much more difficult if they barely even know their team-mates because they are away on loans elsewhere.}

12 Feb 2019 21:39:31
he sure does edd but i don't see sarri giving him much game meaning hel more dan likely head off to munich in the summer . i don't think the arrival of pulisic will make him feel any further away from the team as he is now. i mean if u can give the boy a go now over a bamg average pedro and an inconsistant willian how will that change next year if he stays which is why i believe he's off.

{Ed001's Note - I don't understand why he has not had more chances this season. It doesn't matter how young he is, that is just an excuse to hide behind. Chelsea can't keep losing young starlets because they are 'too young' to play, it is not sustainable. How many more De Bruynes can be given away before the club starts taking a chance on them?}

12 Feb 2019 22:02:34
ya but it keeps happening an these young players seem to almost no there certain to never get a proper chance in the team. i mean hudson odoi has impressed every single time he's played a game for us an he still doesn't get a sniff more often dan not on a weekly basis. what's the betting he starts pedro and willian again thursday yawn.

{Ed001's Note - if it keeps happening the most promising youngsters will look elsewhere. There are plenty of options in London for them to pick between.}

12 Feb 2019 22:35:04
Looking at the talent of some of our youngsters, I am pretty sure they will be getting offers from outside England, let alone London.

Just today I read from a Nigerian source that PSG and Dortmund are interested in Anjorin. Kid's not even 18 yet and there is already interest in one of our best upcoming youngsters. Luckily, his contract runs till 2021.

Something needs to change, Ed.

12 Feb 2019 22:37:42
i agree but you can't blame these kids for looking elsewhere.

13 Feb 2019 02:07:19
I still think young players will come to our academy but if they don’t get chances in the team we’ll start to see a lot of CHO situations where they run down their contracts. We have a very successful academy that’s starting to produce very good talents (not all Chelsea standard) but definitley good enough to make a very good career. So youth will still come to build their skill and technique, we just need to push them into the first team.
