Werner - chelsea

It's a bit mad with Chelsea at the minute. Last year they bring in Lampard to bring through the young players because of the transfer ban, their best players are Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount, everyone's raving about Billy Gilmour and Loftus-Cheek, they turn down 80 million from Bayern for Odoi. The young players get them into the Champions League despite a ropey defence.

As soon as the transfer ban lifts they bin them all off and bring in 200 million worth of attacking players and old Thiago Silva.

If I was Abraham, Mount or Odoi I'd be livid. Even last year with Pulisic, Odoi, Kovacic and Barkley it felt like they had one midfielder too many. Now they've got another four.
When you've got a relatively young defence who have made a few mistakes, bringing in someone like Thiago Silva for the training ground alone would be worth his weight in gold.
I agree that they're stacked up in midfield now, with good options up front and with rotation/cup games etc...they look in good shape.

Yeah true. Thiago Silva and David Luiz playing in the same league again just gives me flashbacks to Germany scoring a casual 7 first half goals in a WC semi final. Fantastic defender in his day like, one of the best in the world.

They look in great shape. Just not sure how they keep everyone happy. Chelsea have always been the worst for collecting players and having 25+ guys out on loan each season but binning off the young players who were developing so well last season seems... bold, to say the least.

I think Silva is a great signing for Chelsea, their defence was all over the place last season. He missed that 7-1 thrashing by Germany so can’t have any blame for that.
