I'd much rather have Willian than Pedro, his work rate is awesome. Doubt they'll get anything like that from Pedro.

Pedro is a finisher, Willian is everything but. He will add a goal threat to the right of their attack, personally I'm skeptical how well he'll adapt, but it makes a lot of sense on paper.

Pad - Your boy Adam Armstrong scored again last night, he is miles ahead of league1 so shouldn't be too far from the reckoning of getting in the Prem squad (hope he stays with Cov for the full 6 months, unlikely though).

Pedro's intelligent, tekked out, can finish, has delivered at every level. The only way he can fail imo is if Mourinho wants him playing negative football and tracking back to save Ivanovic for 90mins, but sadly that could very well happen.

Undoubtedly, but a lack of goals has not really been a problem for this Chelsea team.

Not saying he aint good, just not really addressing their most pressing concerns.

Looks like Bolasie might be off to spurs afterall. Pardew more or less holding the door open for him with his comments today. Mixed feelings on this one. Only cost us 400k and £20mill (if the reports are true) would be an absolute steal. What I like about him is he's got skills and strength and is an entertainer (just like zaha) who have been drawing a new generation of young fans to Selhurst Park. Some games however he plays like he believes his own hype and gets nothing right. When he went to Africa Cup of Nations we didn't actually miss him and went on a bit of a winning run.

Always had a blinder against Brighton though Sticking out tongue

There is honestly no chance Levy will pay £20m for Bolasie
