Thing is if his next performance is as poor ...when will somebody who is obvs week mentally start letting it get to him ...if he read Conte's but in the paper he could already be full of doubts .
Time will tell

Id still have him in our midfield any day of the week
Simply simply lovely

Yeah I agree with that. Bit early to write him off tho imo

Perhaps but it is a bit of history repeating itself. It's the old story, there's always an excuse for him. I think it'll be a bad move for him, it was a transfer that barely caused a ripple for the one time future of English football and certainly didn't inspire Chelsea fans. He got a bit of grief from a minority of Everton fans but that will be nothing compared to what the Chelsea fans will give him, injury or not, time is not on his side and if they turn quickly on him his confidence will be shot and we've all seen what he's like when his head drops.

At the end of the day he's played 150 Premier League games and been in and around the league for 6 or 7 years now, he's no longer an inexperienced kid finding his way in the game. I can't help think we'll still be having these conversations when he's 29 and people will still be claiming that the next season is a big season for him or saying he's still got potential.

I doubt theres many who think this is a good move for him but it's been and gone now

He's been all potential with a few flashes of brilliance here and there. Perhaps as he matures he may get close to being the player we expected. This is the worst move he could have made from a footballing perspective. I expect him to eventually become one of Leicester's greatest players.

With his poor mental game, a few bad games and benchings and he could be on a slippery slope to running down his massive contract on the bench.

From that article

"He whirled around a lot, finding pockets of pointless space."   

Haha  just how I remember him playing for us.

He has been out for 6-8 months though so Im not really surprised he had a stinker of a debut. Im sure he will improve but not enough to meet Chelsea standards. I imagine he will spend a season there being a useful sub and then get sold on to West Ham or some other uninteresting team.

Mahrez will end up in the same boat at City and he's a way better player.
