That does suck
but the only one I had a crazy issue with is KDB tho, Lukaku and Mata were good deals for the money.
So, I don't know much about Chelsea's youth players, Chelsea's season is over (liked we talked about) so embrace the suck
(your a Knicks fan too so you can deal with a bad season, we've dealt with many!). So now that their isn't much to lose, I think Jose will now start playing some these guys..
But who are the young bucks? I've seen Kennedy in action couple times, he's shown promise (he was playing midfielder tho). But who are the rest, who are you looking forward to?
I'm actually excited to see, Chelsea always have a ton of young guys plus I've never seen Mourinho have the opportunity to expirement and see what he has in the youth ranks, he's always been fighting for titles, this could be a humbling and good experience for him.
Bruh Chelsea has an ASSORTMENT of young guys. The ones currently on hand are Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Bertrand Traore, and Kenedy.
RLC is believed to be the next guy to break through and Mourinho has actually said in the past that its time he get consistent first team chances but so far he's played sparingly. From the little I've seen he's the man with the most potential out of all the current guys on hand. He should've easily been playing next to Matic a few times this season, he can provide protection for the back four and actually has some vision so he knows how to pick out the right passes. He gets caught out of position at times and Mou has gotten on him for playing without a sense of urgency so that might be the main reason he doesn't get as much time as he should.
Kenedy actually seems to be Mourinho's favorite and the plan is to actually convert him to LB. I'm actually kinda shocked at how many times Mou has given him a chance, at various spots on the pitch. He started out on the wing, he definitely has the speed for it but he's not really technically stunning, completely straight-line runner from what I've seen but the kid plays with heart and tracks back religiously. Aggressive on the offensive end also, constantly making runs towards goal and make the appropriate passes. Talent wise I don't think he's on par with RLC or Traore but he definitely plays the hardest of all three.
Traore is an out and out striker. Makes timely runs, can attack with the ball at his feet, links up decently with others and constantly looks to score. He started out on the wing but he's better up top, he's not scared to take risks. He's pretty lightweight though but I wouldn't call him soft. I've seen him the least out of the three but he made a lasting impression against Stoke and should've been given more of a chance this season with Costa being a no show and Radamel being washed.
Hopefully they start getting meaningful appearances, every time they are out there they show promise and cause positive changes. We look so much better offensively and they are all over the pitch when focused. We got about 25+ guys on loan, someone provided a link for the whole run down of prospects.
