Anyone seen Lofty?

Latest I hear we want Rueben Loftus Cheek on loan in January. Chelsea though are not interested in letting him go now, despite no reassurance of game time. Personally I think this young man has the potential to be the biggest star in English football from a home grown point of view. Notwithstanding Harry Kane. If we could land him that would be a major feather in our cap and for the midfield. Even if it is until the end of the season.

Dicks is the man's picture

should've bought him instead of wheelchair.

I think he would great for us and his England career would flourish in claret and blue rather than a bit part player with the rent boys!

That's the annoying thing about the so called bigger clubs. Any home grown talent that's come up through the age groups. Goes out on loan, in this case Loftus Cheek to Palace. Then comes back to the parent club, barely sees any game time, but is not for sale.

the logic is if you're a 'big' club then buy every one you can get your hands on so that they can't play for one of your big rivals!

Now Chelsea are doing it. They have 29 players mainly in their early 20's out on loan but not for sale.

It's a sad state of affairs Dicksy, but I feel you are right.

But Nasri seems like a priority, as he is undergoing a Medical and will be offered a 80,000 Pounds a week deal. Fredericks is now out with an injury, and goodness knows if Nasri can stay fit!!
