Who really deserves to stay at Chelsea next season?

New, comments

We lose to Swansea for the first time in the Premier League. @LondonBluePod takes a look at the remainder of the season, how we deploy the youth for the best success, and who should be sent packing this summer.

@LondonBluePod is Brandon Busbee (@bbbusbee), Dan Dormer (@dandormer), and Nick Verlaney (@nickverlaney), three diehard Chelsea fans that meet weekly to discuss the happenings of all things Blue.

This week's episode reviews our match against Swansea City and marks the second match of Chelsea's extended pre-season campaign. We also look ahead to our next match friendly versus Manchester City. We also revive our "keep or sell" list after some questionable performances and the announcement of Antiono Conte as our new First Team Head Coach.

Housekeeping:
This week's topics:
  • Why did Pato start ahead of Traore?
  • Why give minutes to Falcao versus youth talent that will be present at Chelsea beyond May?
  • Was it harsh to pull Miazga for his mistake to replace him with...  John Obi CB?
  • Is seventh place, and Europa League, now out of the question with this loss?
