Cause it's cheaper. The England U20s had several Chelsea lads in the squad. They may make the grade, they may not. Just like us. John Bostock agrees...
Balls, replying to myself makes me look schizophrenic.

It also helps with the Home grown quota requirements.

Yeh but they don't need them, the last long term academy product was Terry at Chelsea, we have a bunch coming through and we might use them.

Fair point.

Wasn't Sturridge a Man City youth player? And Ihenacho (sp)
Yeh Sturridge was both City and Chelsea but only at Liverpool did he develop. If we had billions maybe we would have gone down the same route, personally I am glad we value young English players, make a good connection, imagine selling Kane because we had Aguero.

I'm glad too. I like our youth policy. But Sessignon doesn't really fit it - he's already too well known.

Anyway, sorry A&C for wandering (well, more running hell for leather) off topic.

FML!

You're supposed to apply a pinch of salt to the ITK, not take a handful of sand and shove it down your knickers.

More sandy vaginas in here than Bondai beach.

What do you guys think will happen with N'Koudou?
Wouldn't give up on him just yet.

Don't think he played too badly when he got his chance on the field last year. It's a shame that he just couldn't make it past Eriksen, Alli and Son. That's tough to do. With Son possibly being out for the start of the season he could be a real difference-maker. Of course that all depends on if the Club stands pat in the forward positions at the start of the season.

I just basically want us to sign a whole boat load of sexy foreigners. Don't care who, or what position they play, or how much they cost, or whether we need them or not. Just want the craic to be honest. Lots of sexy foreigners please, Daniel.

I have a couple of theories about what might happen to your post given the thread we are in.
Bah! Just curious as if he couldn't get a sniff last season I'm struggling to see how he fits in the coming campaign with possible signings + Lamela.

I have to agree with one of the posters above that the way we've handled N'Koudou and N'Jie has been a waste of resources and time.

Some people are taking this transfer window/ITK lark way to seriously.

Look, in years gone by we've spent big and bought sexy, and all we had to show for it was a couple or so 5th place finishes and the odd flirtation with the champions league.

Compare that with the way we've spent, sold and (gasp!) recruited over the last year or two.
Unspectacular in terms of a spectator sport in a thread like this, ill grant you. But, on the field of play (where it counts, by the way), well, you've seen the results for yourselves.

I know which of the two strategies I'm preferring at present. And it ain't the former.
