Its easy to love chelsea when we buy special talents like david luiz, oscar, mata and hazard but there's no denying there's a big problem that we dont trust our youth enough. did we give borini enough chances? and when would we give josh mceachran his run in the 1st team.
it was sad to see borini banging goals for roma (i would even feel worse now that he is in Liverpool) while torres who we bought for 50 mill made us the laughing stock of the premiership, it left me thinking what if we agreed to pay borini somewhere near the so-called ridiculous wages he was asking for at the time and integrated him into our 1st team.
Now we have another special talent in josh mceachran who every Chelsea fan who has followed him closely like i've tried to would know is by far better than cleverly and ramsey and probably at par with wilshere of arsenal but his problem is he has found playing time hard to come by. Our best preseason game was our 1st when josh started as the deep-lying play maker along side mikel and behind hazard giving two assists (3 if you count the Seattle goal as well), all the next games he didn't start Chelsea lacked creativity from the middle which to me is saying something.
sturridge is another who we fans are guilty of overlooking, we have a talented striker who set the world alight playing for lowly bolton as a striker but we cant trust him enough to be a deputy to torres even though the Olympics has proved he is still an exellent striker. most clubs have 4 strikers but being that chelsea have played predominantly with 1 striker for the last 6 years i see no reason to have more than 3 at most.
josh mceachran was supposed to be mentored by lampard to take over when he retires but now we have oscar being mentioned as the heir to lamps throne which is good for chelsea but bad for josh who is chelsea true and true, has similar potential as oscar if properly nurtured. We clearly wasted the potential of kakuta by derailing his progress in the last 2 years, and nw we have a new set of upcoming special talent like josh, piazon, chalobah, feruz, bruma,courtois. So what plans do we have to take advantage of them, hw many of the hazards,oscars, will we continue buying while wasting our very own talent that are almost as good.
