    The sad thing about this is at that precise moment his future stellar career with Chelsea and England flashed before his eyes. Trophies, individual awards and adulation everywhere.

    Little did he know that 6 years later his career would be finished.

    So despite him reportedly missing in action he turns up on the bench last night

  3. Is he going to play a part in our run in, lets hope he is back to more like his old form.

    If he is it will be like having a new quality signing :cool:

    Well yes, but that was because Cleverley, Quina, Pereyra were all injured. The fact he didn't come on even when the three central midfielders had run themselves into the ground as part of the 10 man effort shows how far down the pecking order he really is.

    The day before the game he posted an Instagram story with his leg in some sort of big rehab boot.

    He's obviously still f**ked!

    Very surprised but really pleased to see him make it onto the pitch on Saturday. Hopefully he can get some minutes under his belt tonight as well. I can't help thinking what he really needs is a proper crunching tackle to show himself that he's ok. It must be a mental hurdle as much as physical

    Was he wearing the rehab boot ? If so, did it affect his mobility ?

    Clearly this season is a write off, with a full pre-season under his belt, I expect him to be back next season particularly if Doucs goes.

    Would give a shot like the proverbial traction engine.

    Quite a silver lining!

    Same old hopes. He’s been out for nearly 2 years. His career is toast.

    Excellent that Javi got him on on Saturday.

    How much of it now is psychological?

    Hasn't had a good season anywhere since he was a 17 year old with us in 2012/13.

    Noticed he wasn't on the bench on Saturday - Cleverley replace him.

    Is that a sign of things to come for Chalobah?

    Not being part of that squad is a massive credit to him.

  17. You have to wonder if he is not going to fully recover and get back to the player he was before the injury?

    From what I have seen of him recently, I don't think it is so much his physical condition that has not fully recovered, it looks more like his mental condition to me. IMO he quite often seems hesitant going into tackles and sometimes seems to even shy away from them.

    Is it just my imagination or do any of you agree?

    Hopefully though with a good pre-season under his belt he might get back his Mo-Jo. Then he can step into the Doucoure role should he leaves us, otherwise I think we might have to consider off loading him, possibly as early as January

    He's got up until the end of the first half of the first match of the new season to prove himself to me. If he's still bottling tackles and not getting stuck in I'm going to boo the living daylights out of him until he leaves the club.

    I will accept no excuses.
