On Goes the Belgian Revolution

On Goes the Belgian Revolution

So it appears we've signed three more Belgian players.

Tika, Lamisha and, most excitingly, Charly Musonda.

The three brothers are set to sign from Anderlecht for an unknown fee. It appears that Arsenal and Man City were after them with Arsenal in the latter stages of talks when Roman and his crew stepped in to ruin the signing and steal them for us.

Tika, 18, is a defensive midfielder with good prospects, I suspect with the right training he could come good.

Meanwhile, Lamisha, 20, is a central midfielder, who in 3 appearances at the U-21 Euro Championships managed to gain 1 assist. Again with the right training he could come good, although he is reaching an age at which you'd hope he'd already be quite strong.

But the most exciting prospect is Charly Jr. (his father is also Charly Musonda, and also played for Anderlecht), 15, touted to be following the path of Eden Hazard with a similar style of play and a very high level of potential.

He plays as a quite attacking midfielder, with the ability to play pretty much anywhere within the midfield. Being only 15 however, I had a tough job finding any footage of him so the best I could do is this:

It appears we truly are playing the long game, this is another youth team signing and another bit of brotherly love after the many young players signed in recent times (including the 3 MK Dons brothers, Patrick Bamford and I guess we can include Lucas Piazon in it too, although, that wasn't quite so recent).

It appears that they may take our William Gallas, but they'll never take, our Belgiannns (said in Braveheart style)... Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Nonetheless it seems we have a new era forming which will be littered with Belgian and South American stars. (especially with rumours ripe about the possible signing of either Marouane Fellaini or Moussa Dembele.

How'd you feel about that?

Would you rather we be chasing Spanish or English youngsters?

I'm getting fed up with this policy. And to be honest, Kakuta at 15 looked like an even so good prospect, although Charly looks more like a team player than him. Oh well...we shall see.

Honestly we should have gotten only Charly, the other two are kinda old.
10/06/2012 12:56:00
@FrLamp, as in you'd rather us be getting players ready for success now? Or you'd rather us stop buying the "next Messi's" who often end up not fulfilling their potential?

I think it depends on the young lads, no matter how talented you are if you are not hardworking you might not become a great footballer, CR7 was talented and very hardworking,DD was always training hard and trying to improve his skills, Betrand is talented and i heard he trains really hard and wants to become the best, Piazon and Chalobah are also very hardworking they work on their skills and want to get better. Kakuta is talented but his body language on the pitch is poor. The board is trying to give these guys the oppurtunity to be world class players and i think they are doing the right thing, but they need to take it slow and focus more on the first team for now as we have more than enough talents in the Academy for now.

SameX.... 18 and 20 are hardly old.
10/06/2012 13:10:00
All these brilliant youngsters signed, and still only Bertrand and Sturridge have been given chances. We got a transfer ban because of Kakuta and he isn't even being given a proper chance.

Why do we even bother when we all know they‘ll be loaned, loaned some more, loaned again then replaced with 32million pound Munain,33mill pound Brazilian Oscar and 30mill pound Ross Barkely.
10/06/2012 13:14:00
I don't see the problem with this, at the very least they will improve and have a higher re-sale value...
10/06/2012 13:29:00
Enough already! We want these talents in our first team. Jeez,! At this rate we will become a feeder club.
10/06/2012 13:36:00
Waste of time and resources!
10/06/2012 13:54:00
What's the need when 18yr old Piazon is yet to get 1min Playing time with first team. Jeremie Boga was same age as Musonda when he signed, he
10/06/2012 14:00:00
..plays same style of football as well.
10/06/2012 14:01:00
Let the coach form a good team among this youngsters and allow them to be the team that we will feature in the carling cup games and F.A cup,with that they'l gain experience and 4-5 can really make the 1st team cut
10/06/2012 14:13:00
looks like charly is the one we really want. the other two were thrown into the deal as a sweetner.
10/06/2012 14:19:00
Dont care for now! Maybe in 5 years! I think we now should finalise this hulk deal in the coming week...and then lOok for a midfielder and a rb---
10/06/2012 14:55:00
ALL OF YOU NEED TO LOOK AHEAD! At one point or another, Roman is going to leave us, and we may not be fortunate enough to buy the biggest players in world football, like we can now. BUYING THESE PLAYERS IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. Just look at Piazon, Feruz and Todd Kane. Remember these names...they'll soon be stars for us. Charly is a good buy.

looks like all the youngsters have choose the wrong path coming suspecting that piazon also feel the same once after we sign marin and then hazard and probably hulk maybe walcott and bla bla the end of the day, they will realise that they need to move on and go to other clubs that gives them a proper chance. if i were one of them, i will never come to chelsea..yes i know that chelsea academy is one of the best in the world but our graduate will never get a proper whats the point? want to become a feeder club?
10/06/2012 15:47:00
great signing hoping young brazilians and argentines should be more and the spanish.
10/06/2012 20:35:00
Yat,chelsea is like an arena where gladiators fight,its where only excellent,lucky,hardworking and determined players make it...JT have no rival at his position... We breed the best...Mceachran would make it and so many others...But they need to be determined
