if Chelsea want to offload any of Tammy, Barkley, Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Udoi we shoud be trying to buy or loan to buy as many as possible. All good young players better than we have.

They have David Moyes as manager. The most grim, grey, never won anything boring as fuck manager from a period long gone you can ever imagine. And they brought him back after firing him. The porn twats deserve all of the failure coming their way.

Not sure it's been mentioned elsewhere in the thread, but premier league rules mean we can only loan two players at any one time, and only 1 from any other premier league club.

So if we're interested in Barkely and Loftus-Cheek, we're only going to be able to loan one of them - and then a loan for Tammy is definitely off the table.

We could of course just buy all three and be done with it.

It's a good year to be approaching English fringe players at the top clubs, given the Euros are at the end of the season.  Jack's broken into the squad ahead of people like Barkley and RLC, so there's definitely a selling point that playing regularly - and well - for us, gets you a place in the England squad.

I reckon Barkley is worried that Jack will make him look shite in comparison if he joined us.

I am not a big fan of Barkley. The other three are quality and at the right age.

Don't like Barkley. A rubbish run of the mill midfielder. A Southgate type of player. No.

Loftus Cheek, yes!

Ross Barklay is just what we need imo. He will allow McGinn, Luiz and the front line to play their natural games.  Would love him here.

I'm not sure what you mean by saying it would allow McGinn and Luiz to play their natural game.

Luiz can sit and McGinn can go chasing the ball knowing a quality midfielder is beside them.  I like Conor but not sure he has the same effect on the team in open play.

Not sure it’s nothing to see. Losing Jota and Doherty is a blow for them, yes. But they’d already got podence and neto in last season, both who look decent.
They’ve then gone and bought one of the most highly rated youngsters in Europe in silva and Barcelona’s right back. Irrespective of whether they think he’s surplus to requirements, he played 30-40 games last year for one of the biggest clubs on the planet.
Now I don’t think we’re q there yet and they have the Mendes factor but they are definitely statement signings.

But why then are one of the biggest clubs on the planet getting shot of him and replacing him with a promising kid that has had one season of top flight football?

Teams like Barcelona don't generally give up players they rate, they don't get their arms twisted by the likes of Wulvz. The deal suits them and suits Mendes, and may well suit Wulvz, but the priorities are in that order.

And the boy wonder may well be that, but 18 is very young to adapt to another culture and style of play. Good luck to him, if it doesn't work out for him he could make a career as a Harpo Marx-a-like.

I was going to comment on the Harpo Marx reference but I couldn't find my bulbhorn.

I would, and give them some cash too. I like McGinn but he has shown nothing like the quality Barkley has at this level and is in terrible form following two injuries.

I think that's a terrible idea personally.
