'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Five Year Deal for Ghanaian!

Speculation had linked us with signing the Ghana international, Christian Atsu.

Now unless I`ve missed something I`m not sure he actually put pen-to-paper.

Well it appears he has done so now signing a five year contract and talking about doing so has commented,

'When Chelsea came for me, I saw a good opportunity to work with a massive club and a great coach.'

It`s great to have you on board young man.

^^What a 'vital' comment by a 'genius'. Talk of constructive criticism. Comment of the day! Hurray!!! Lol *claps for crazy, spits out*
HGH Magic
Well merlin, except I'm missing something myself, Christian signed on 31st August, about four days ago and was immediately farmed out to our friends @Vitesse. He's way more direct and pacier than Victor Moses and gifted with more guile and technique, and pretty much hugs the line better than the Nigerian. Safe to say he brings Barca's Christian Tello and Sporting's Bruma [or, pardon the premature stretch, ManUre's Nani] to mind. Fingers crossed how he turns out for the Eredivisie outfit though.
HGH Magic
thanks for the update, much appreciated
merlin
Not getting my hopes high on this one,i see another negotiation tool in him
Ken4CFC
You're welcome merlin ;) That's a pretty safe stance to take Ken4, and trust me it's perfectly understandable - but why not look up the brighter side pal? Lad is just 21, has a decade ahead of him, and if you will, can take it to the bank that he is no Alan Smith, Charmakh, Gervinho, Andy Carroll, Bebe, Stewart Downing, Obertan or, heck, no Franco Di Santo, Michael Manciene nor Steve Sidwell...if you catch my drift ;)
HGH Magic
HGH Magic..stoch,matic,borini,bruma,sinclair e.t.c all had decades on their side,but you know how far their chelsea dream went,dont you??
Ken4CFC
Willian(25),mata(24),hazard(22),schurrle(22),kdb(21 or 22),oscar(21),moses(22),notable mentions-kakuta(??),piazon and thorgan,so we are overstocked for the future in atsu's position..it would take a miracle for the ghanian to make the cut here.
Ken4CFC
Marin also.

@hgh i've really been following this guy at porto and the ghanaian national team,and i can bet i've watched him more times than you have.And i think you're a bit over-exaggerating.He's got some mad pace,mad energy and physicality but he's poor technically.I can tell or ask a ghanaian fan,he isnt among the top two wingers in the ghanaian national team at the moment.He's young with potentials and can only improve though.Wish him the best and hopefully he'll be good enough for chelsea in the future.

A certain Mubarak wakaso 22yrs of ghana and espanyol is overall a better winger than atsu and commands a starting place ahead of atsu in the ghanaian national team.
blueozone
Really @HGH Magic??can i have a taste of what you are smoking pls?With all due respect to Atsu, he's not fit to lace Victor Moses' boots.Below average player!
obimikelisdbest
Well said @blueozone.
obimikelisdbest
HGH Magic- another personal attack? I have watched his videos and there is absolutely nothing that makes me think he is any better than even Moses. And 21 is not 16, he is not even at the level when Kalou arrived here as 21. Its safe to say he will never make it to CFC first team unless something miraculous happens. But what can we say, 3 million is like a Change for Roman, picking up roadside bargains and hoping they will hit Jackpot some day!
crazyforchelsea
Welcome to Chelsea. Good luck on loan. Hope you prove your doubters wrong.
StamfordDLion
Am still waiting for a certain kakuta to prove doubters wrong
Ken4CFC
there's a better player than Moses?? Really?? When did it happen??
@Mq
^^^and I'd love to hear what "Professor" thinks about this :)
@Mq
Watch out @obimikel before you disagree with @HGH and call his favourite below average- unless you love low level personal vitriol aimed at you!
crazyforchelsea
Lol@crazy..he might need a vitriol-proof
Ken4CFC
Lol @Mq.
blueozone
@blackzone. Wakaso better than Atsu? No no. Wakaso is, raw, direct, pacy but Atsu has the same qualities plus a little bit of 'Mata'. And also has a very calm finish. Give him the ball and he will make something out of nothing. And this is a Ghanaian who has watched enough matches of the two saying so. Though I'm afraid he might get the chance to prove his worth. I hope I'm proven wrong. Mazarca, Kdb and co will only get better which will make it even more difficult for him to break in by the year.
emperorzert12
he might 'NOT'
emperorzert12
Well i aint ghanaian but from what i've watched,atsu may be better but i prefer that wakaso guy because though he's as pacy and energetic as atsu,he has the edge over atsu in deliveries and final balls which is important.But from his last season's porto performance,atsu is talented but there are a lot of poor sides to his game.And also he managed only 9 starts for porto last season.But like i said,he's young and can only improve but certainly cant be compared to victor moses at the moment,even with moses's poor final balls.
blueozone
But one thing im sure of is his final balls and deliveries cant be as bad of that of moses.
blueozone
........Bad as that of moses.
blueozone
Lol @crazyforchelsea.@Mq Surely,nobody is better than you at trolling.the world will be a better place when you stop trolling on this site.
obimikelisdbest
Wats is goin on about Betrand Traore?is he goin to sign fr chelsea or we sud forget him.
Nobleblue
@Nobleblue we can't forget a super talent like bertrand traore.Club is waiting for him to clock 18 yrs so that he can sign a professional contract.the lad is superb.
obimikelisdbest
Lol,@Hgh is a proud nigerian and i guess he is trying to be non-sentimental,unlike most nigerians that tend to hide from the fact when it concerns their players.And im impressed by that.But even an indian or an eskimo that have really watched atsu wouldnt compare him with marin at his best or even moses.
blueozone
Due to too much talents available in our squad at the moment,I had already forgotten about Bertrand traore.Too many great talents on stand-by but unfortunately not all might have a future with the club. Some players on loan would definately be sold for profit,but i really want this bertrand traore to have a future with us.So many years ahead though.
blueozone
@Bluezone, With game time under his belt at Vitesse we'll see the difference
