    Sancho has just won the best player of his age from UEFA. He was always gonna be a star

    Edward was an impact sub for England so not in the same league according to his international manager

    We tried everything to get Sancho. Everything. If you start ransoming players then the dressing room can turn (remember many are mates)...

    If you roll back time a little way, youll note that most comment was that they were very similar players of very similar potential/ability.

    Mainly by spurs fans though
    In the youth fan base which I follow online (never been to a game myself) sancho was the star and Edwards was one of a few others very talented players

    Even so, my point still stands.

    Promising youth player, club refused to deal, we took a sizeable sum instead.

    Its worked out such that those who said "we should get Sancho" get to say "I told you so" but even then I dont think it makes it a bad deal at the time.

    Walker paid for Sanchez + half of Aurier. That's the way to think of that deal.

    Interesting to see that the signing of Pulisic instantly signals to certain segments of the media that Chelsea will soon lose Hazard to Real. Hard to imagine that Pulisic even comes close to replacing Hazard.

    But shirt sales next summer in America? Phwoarrr!

    I remember the sea of Bobby Convey Reading shirts at NRA rallies and Nascar the length and breadth of the country.

    Wouldn't be suprised if we did some ground work on this deal, and chelsea came in and wacked 10m on the fees. Pulisic would have been good, but with Lamela and Moura not getting games, we have other priorities.

    If he ends up succeeding, Chelsea will likely make huge inroads into the American market. If he doesn't, it will be typical Chelsea with young players.

    I can't tell if he is going to replace Willian or Hazard (hopefully).

    How could you miss a whole sea?

    They sing tributes to Pulisic at the start of every race. Bright and early Sunday mornings, the devoted gather to regale us with 'Onward Christian's Soldiers'.
