Why can’t we give youth a chance now? He is good enough to be on the pitch, If Lampard, Ramieres, Mikel can start so can Josh.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
The boy is not just for the future, he is for the now. His youth and game will wake up the veterans in the field. Ozil and Wilshere are not better than Josh, they’ve just been given the opportunity and confidence to start games with the big boys.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
Let’s not allow our young with potential to waste away while we drop points, if this boy starts seven straight matches then he could turn into a Messi or Ronaldo. He is that good and I am not English, so please don’t think I’m prejudiced.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
I am still mourning over the sale of Miroslav Stoch; he left because he knew he wasn’t going to play.
Josh won’t leave but he has to play. He may not have the pedigree but he has the potential to play for our first team, we must leave out sentiment and put out the best on the pitch. Anyone who doesn’t want to sit on the bench should prove it in training and on the pitch.                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
For now though Josh has a place in my Chelsea first team, but I am not the coach, or am I?

  1. I'm sorry but i almost called this article stupid, but i wont. This is the problem with you writers e.t.c. You make all these comments and it start getting to the very young players' head.
    How many times have you seen him training where you saw him perfoming better than Ramires, Mikel and Lampard? I know if he was the one that made that wonderful run into the box, you guys wouldn't let anyone rest since its coming from a teenager. But bcos its Ramires, then its nothing!
    Last season when our midfielders were out and we brought in the youngsters, pls how many matches did we win with them? So he's that good that he's not considered for England senior squad like Wilshere, Cleverley, Gibbs e.t.c Even Sturridge with the hype has not earned a call up!
    Pls let these kids grow!!!! In fact Josh himself said Wilshere is ahead of him.
    dont get me wrong though, i LOVE Josh, and that is why i want him to mature into the team and not rush him! Up chelsea

  2. josh should play in starting 11..beleive him..he is very very good midfield with modern vision and style of play..please AVB..give josh chance..he will be 'chelsea luka modric' for you…
