Ed001, if Chelsea need 1-2 HG signings in the summer, which of these do you think are good enough well-suited for our style of football?

1. Jadon Sancho
2. Harry Maguire
3. Ryan Sessegnon
4. Declan Rice
5. James Maddison
6. Michael Keane
7. Ben Chilwell
8. Aaron-Wan Bissaka
9. Callum Wilson
10. Lewis Cook.

{Ed001's Note - 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 and maybe 9. Wan-Bissaka in particular, he has the ability to be the best right back in the world.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, would you prefer if we integrate Reece James who we already have, or should we go all out for Bissaka if we get the chance?

{Ed001's Note - I think clubs should always try to use their youth players rather than buying. I mean Wan-Bissaka only got a chance because all of Palace's right backs were injured and they needed someone in a training game, so he got seconded. He was actually a winger. He was so good one-on-one in the training game that they decided to keep him there and gave him a shot in a match. Now he is arguably the best player they have. Who knows how good James would be given the chance to train with the first team and play alongside them? All this loaning them out is utter cack from people who have no idea about youth development. It works in such a small proportion of cases that it is clearly not the answer. They have to train with the best players and coaches possible, which they are not going to find in the lower leagues, to really reach their potential. It is not like the old days when players played in the streets to refine their techniques.}

Thanks for the insight, Ed.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

Roman i am surprised you have included maguire on this list. I don't know why is he so hyped about?

I live in Leicester and go to watch quite a few kf their games and believe me he by no means is a top 6 material. I actually even believe that Leicester have better defenders than him in their own team.

07 Mar 2019 19:12:07
Really agree with your assessment Ed spot on as usual
I’d love to see us throw our youth in it’s truly the only way we’d know if they’re good enough like you say otherwise all that’s going to happen is we’re going to loose them.

{Ed001's Note - the problem is that, in the short term, a mistake by a youngster could cost a result and managers are in the results game, not in the building a club for the long term game.}

07 Mar 2019 19:19:45
No exactly mate but in the same regard first team players still make mistakes and surely you see someone’s character after they’ve made one I know it’s not ideal but it’s a good way of seeing someone’s character
Was hoping to see Cho get a game tonight do you honestly think Sarri trusts him Ed01?

{Ed001's Note - he clearly thinks he is still a bit raw to be trusted. Understandable as the lad is very raw, but he will only lose that rawness by gaining experience.}

07 Mar 2019 19:27:31
Yeah completely agreed just hope him not playing him isn’t going to push him away from the club
Do you think he’ll leave Ed?

{Ed001's Note - difficult to say as it is a personal choice, but I would if I was him yes.}

07 Mar 2019 19:34:09
Yeah of course mate I hope he stays because I think he’s got unbelievable potential and with Pedro and Willian the wrong side of 30 I feel he needs to just bide his time.
Thankyou very much for your input Ed really appreciated mate.

{Ed001's Note - I would like to see him stay, I want to see the best players playing in the league.}

07 Mar 2019 19:38:18
Yeah him and James are definitely the stand outs from the youth for me think we need some playing get a bit of identity back in the team.

07 Mar 2019 20:34:54
No idea how Willian sees every game, play Hudson-Odoi a few games and make Willian work for the position not have it handed to him. Our handling of youth is nothing short of awful.

07 Mar 2019 21:37:12
I do agree standard the way we handle youth is terrible these are the games tonight we could afford to play one or two youngsters.

08 Mar 2019 07:45:59
So glad you said that about wan bissaka Ed I said it to my son about 6 weeks ago he's brilliant player.

{Ed001's Note - I think he is an outstanding player. Without doubt, imo, the best right-back in the Prem right now.}

08 Mar 2019 13:19:22
Does anyone hold an interest are palace likely to sell if price is right.

{Ed001's Note - Palace do not sell and he has shown no inclination of wanting to leave yet.}
