I would sell him to juventus now. He might be better off in the seria A as he's not developed enough as expected and like Ed once said he may never stay fit long enough to make impact for us.
He wasn't up to it when given opportunity when injuries were ravaging our midfield. He's taking up a place in the squad. Not all the academy players will make it with us, unfortunately he has failed to live up to the expectation. The club has been exceptionally patient with him ever since.
I would throw him into any negotiation for chiesa without delay . Availability is a skill in football.

Funny you mention Chiesa right after "availability is a skill in football". Chiesa just recently suffered an unfortunate long term knee injury. He'll be out for a while.

Chiesa, while a good player, is also living off the Euros tournament hype. I'm really not sure he'd be an improvement for us.

Ah come on jacskon chiesa is a top top player he's certainly shown a lot better form than our wingers have over the past 2 seasons.

Our wingers shouldn't really be a reference point since apparently the club wouldn't mind moving them on. Clearly they think they're not good enough.

Chiesa got hyped to the heavens due to his play at the Euros, which was admittedly good. But international football is a night and day difference to club football. Especially with Italy since Mancini was one of the few coaches to get his country playing a bit of decent football. A lot of international sides defend and play on the counter because developing patterns and quick interplay between players who don't play alongside each other for much of the season isn't easy.

This season before his injury Chiesa had only 2 goals in about 900 minutes in Serie A. Now he also had 3 assists, but it's mainly goals we're lacking. He had 8 goals last season for Juve, which is decent enough. But not the "saviour" type of amount we need from a winger. By the time he returns from injury he'll probably already be 25, which of course isn't old, but it's not as if he's some young talent that will still develop a whole lot. And he's only got 1 season in his career where he's scored over 10 league goals in a season. For like 30 mio, maybe he's worth it. But for the sums Juve would ask, should be an easy pass.

Michael Olise at Palace should be one we keep an eye on. I wanted us to get him over the summer, but he probably did the smart thing by joining Palace. He'd be our best winger if we had him right now.

Jackson he's a failure to us given the amount of patience shown to him by the club. Spent more than 2 years on injury yet couldn't help we needed him. I'm disappointed and would grab any transfer requests for him.
He's taking g up a position for a player who can help the team. Obviously he's not good enough after his recent performance when we were short in his position but couldn't fill it.

Putting Salah aside maybe Bowen from West Ham.

He can score a goal and works his socks off.

Jackson I used to enjoy your insights here but this reeck hypocrisy typical of English fans. yoy dare say a player is hyped . Remove the log in your eyes firstsaying any player is hyped when almost all English players live off hype. 6⁶.

Blue blood, not all English players are hyped but a lot are. Some people think ever academy player is going to be top class which, of course, is ridiculous Some blame foreign players as a matter of course, apart from Chilwell and James all the English players have been poor or average including Mount.

You're welcome to your opinion on my views. I don't really get what other players have to do with my thoughts on Chiesa. I mentioned Olise, who is very much not hyped.
So feel free to further elaborate on your post, as I don't understand. If not, also good.

No need to feel attacked by the fact I don't rate Chiesa the way you do. Football fans' views differ, it's hardly a shock.

jackson am i right in thinking olise was on our books as a youngster?
i think bowen is a great shout not seen anything of the kiddie at porto to pass comment.

He was in the academy until he was maybe 14 or 15? Not sure how long exactly. His brother Richard Olise still plays for Chelsea's academy.
