Hi guys so as international break finaly passed I thoiggt i would spice the things up on the banter page with my question.

Name 2 chelsea players which:

Were signed with high expectations but have let you down and one which was signed but you didn't expect him to be anything special but complete surprised you.



My intake would be that biggest downfall signing was shevchenko (sorry if spelt wrong) I really thought he will be extremely succesfull but it seemed yo be otherwise. Secondly the player who really surprised me was Alonso (closely beating Azplicueta) as even though we paid for him quite a sum, there was loads of talks by the fans/ media that he probably will be a flop but look how he turned out to be one of most important/ steady players in our team.

I think the obvious ones are Torres, Shevchenko and perhaps Falcao as these were all very established players before joining us and, especially Torres and Shevchenko were both quite expensive. I'd like to say Cuadrado, however, as I must admit I really thought he would be a great player for us.
On players that've surprised me positively, I think both Alonso, Azpilicueta and Cahill. However, I think the player that surprised me the most was Courtois, as I never expected him to be anything special when we bought him.

For the sake of being different I’ll say Morata and Bakayoko were the ones that I thought would be great for us and really disappointed. Oscar as well I thought looked great and really thought he’d be with us for years but then he left before his prime.

For the one that surprised me I’ll go with Marcos Alonso. Remembering him at Sunderland and Bolton, I did not have high hopes at all but that first season under Conte especially, he was immense.

Morata with another terrible open Goal miss this morning. Poor guy.

A bit unfair - on a par with Kane's miss - does that make Kane a crap player?

What is really a bit unfair is any form of comparison between Kane and Morata.

The January transfer window is really not that far away now and, with things going better than most anticipated, the club have some decisions to make. Here's a few thoughts I have on where some of these decisions should land.

Ampadu either needs to added to the 'loan army' or replace the possibly outgoing Cahill. With qualification from our group secured he is one of a few who should see significant mins in out last Europa League group games, but, in my opinion he is the most advanced and pro-ready of our young players and he needs more mins on the pitch. I think a club like Brighton would be a positive place for a loan.

Hudson-Odoi, whilst also at the top of the quality chart for our young players, should stay with the squad and learn in training. A season behind Ampadu in his progression and still having so much to learn from training with Hazard etc. let's get him to the point where he is comfortable with his role in the team before unleashing him next season. Him, Hazard, Pusilic and Pedro (for experience) would be a potent attacking group to pick from!

As far as incomings are concerned, I really do hope there is some truth to the Pusilic rumours. It would be ideal from him to join in January and learn now for a solid start to next season. The only other thing we need right now is a striker, but I would expect the club to hold out until the summer before addressing this - although I think Wilson could be a nice addition.

In other news - how good did Jay DaSilva look for the u21's the other night. There is no reason this boy can't replace Emerson for next season. I can see him and Reece James as our future full-backs for years to come.

Aina was our future right-back for years to come only a short while ago!

Having a very good season at Torino right now, but I don't think there was really a natural situation for him to break into the side -our fullbacks were far too strong at that time.

I also think James and DaCosta are better players than he was at their age.

I watched the England under 21s earlier. Very impressed with jay Desilva, Tomori and Abraham. All looked really good.
Just wonder how long before they are given a shot at CFC. Especially Desilva and Tomori.

I would have thought that Tammy Abraham would meet our most immediate needs.
