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.
