Is he good in the air and with his back to goal? He'd better be
He's OK'ish with his back to goal, his hold up play has improved, but he's obviously not the finished article yet. He's good in the air when clearing corners and generally defending in his own box. He isn't particularly great with using his height advantage in an attacking sense. He's scores goals at a pretty good rate though.

Yet we can't get a bid for Lingard. It doesn't make sense.

His headers for goals can go absolutely anywhere. His headers on defense are nice.

Honestly, Lingard pissed away this window thinking he could start for Man Utd. If was onboard early, he would have started the season for someone else.

Don't think 34m is that bad a price.

He's still early 20s, pretty experienced already with all his loans and generally scored goals at whatever level he's played at. Scored a few in CL last two seasons before he fell out of favour under Tuchel.

Amazed no one in prem went for him at that price. You'd have thought Everton, West Ham and even Leicester would've been decent moves for him and Mourinho going for him shows he'd have probably been of interest if he'd stayed at Spurs.

Very interested how he does in Serie A.

Despite the fact that I thought it was right for him to move and find a team that believes in him, it's sad to see him go. I'm sure he'll kill it out there. I guess I'm going to have to start watching Roma games now.

Basically he is west Brom version of Lukaku with less pace. Very good poacher but need to improve his back to goal game, heading ability,improve reaction time,learn to use his height and timing his movements.

The mentioned traits for good striker he is not useless on those but have a lot of room to improve. Sadly he can't improve at chelsea with limited game time. Goodluck Tammy.

Strangely I thought he got worse as an all rounder as time went on. What impressed me the most when he first returned to the team was his overall play, which was shown the most in his winner at Norwich and goal to clinch the hatrick at Wolves.

As time went on we just simply didn't see that type of instinctive moments of brilliance for him.

I'm starting to wonder if someone at your club has a hoarding mentality.

That's the only reasonable explanation for why Jones (contract extension in 2019) and Mata (contract extension recently) are still with you, your big list of keepers aswell.

Probably won’t settle and will be back in England in a season or two. Wouldn’t even be surprised if he get’s loaned back to a club in the EPL next season.

How the feck do Chelsea manage to get that kind of money for their out of favor players? Is it wages?

34 mil for an England striker in his early 20s is not that high really. Ben shitting White cost 50!


Even if he's shit they'd make their money back from a mid table prem side. If he's good then they make a fortune.

Getting 34m from an Italian side is harder than selling Ben White for 50m.

Italian clubs are skint and love doing loan deals with no obligation to buy.

The payment is vastly deferred to the 23-24 season though. They are only paying 5m right now and they have Jose as their manager who will throw fits if he doesn't get his players.

We definitely do although Mata is a weird one to bring up to support that. He only keeps getting extended because he's an experienced figure in the dressing room that doesn't demand game time (although the wages we give him are far too high for that role). He's taking his coaching badges right now so this is probably his last contract before he moves into coaching either with us or with another club.

Jones, Bailly and Pereira are all great examples of players who should've been sold ages ago but who we resigned in a desperately misguided attempt to 'preserve value'.

The board is to be blamed too isn't it? He would have tried to secure a move away as early as possible if someone told him that he wasn't in the plans.

That's pretty similar to how Juventus are paying for Lucatelli as well. It's how the Italians clubs do their transfers. They're not splashing out more than 40m for players like the English teams are doing nowadays because they're all broke.

Actually quite interested and intrigued to see how he gets on. Always find it exciting when English players go abroad, it was so rare for so long.
Agreed, it seems they've all seen what Sancho did and really broke the mold there. I think it can only be better for English players too.

He will probably score a bucket load out there.

Be interesting to see how Mourinho copes with him. By all accounts hes a difficult personality to deal with. When it comes to Mourinho and difficult personalities, either they get on really well with Jose and he gets the best out of them or it goes spectacularly wrong.

Zaniolo and Abraham could be a really interesting pairing ... though as you say with Jose it could go either way

Gut feel they will start really well then by the end of the season he will have fallen out with at least one of them - probably have fallen out with both and been sacked just in time to pick up a load of money for being a pundit at the world cup before rocking up in the MLS or managing Portugal

"By all accounts"? I don't think I've ever heard anything about that. Please link a few of them, i'd be interested to see all the managers, coaches or players who said he is difficult to work with.

they also do co ownership. You’ll never ever see that in the premier league

Not short on confidence. He has been having a go at team mates on several occasions.

Managed to earn a free kick which got the keeper sent off. Was very harsh what was minimal contact

That second goal is 100% offside. Fantastic debut from Tammy!
