Benrahma derserves a mention.
Yeah I'd probably agree. Thing is he was probably BOG against Burnley last time out, but 0 goals from say 20 odd appearances just isn't good enough.

I think the frustrating thing is, you can see his talent on the ball, but I think he lacks a yard of pace / strength against the better defenders. I would see if Brentford would be interested in a doing swap deal for Toney with him.

When was the last time a signing from the Dutch League actually did well in the Premier League straight away?

Thinking of say the likes of Depay, Bergwijn, Davy Klassen etc. Just seems to be a league where players coming in really struggle with the pace and intensity more than anything.
Robben, Suarez, Eriksen, Vertonghen, Wijnaldum, Tadic all went more than alright.

Havertz has been a victim of being played out of position, injuries and a bout of COVID. It's no surprise it took a while for him to click but he's starting to show his worth. Our most disappointing signing has been Ziyech.

I voted Willian despite the very low expectations, I didn't expect he would be THIS bad.

Yeah because he's quick. Tammy is a crab and Giroud is old.

He's flop of the season for me.
Tammy and Giroud barely play.

Really making clear how much Chelsea you watch.

He has played nearly every game and we're in the top 4 currently, into the Champions League final and the FA Cup final. Would be one hell of a carry job from the ten others if he was as sh*t as you think he is.

That was my point, the other two barely play because they are sh*te. So Werner is your only option and he's quick which helps with the tactics you play.

I dont think he's sh*t either and I reckon next season he's gonna be great but this season he has been a flop.

All the more reason why he is a flop.

He’s probably had more chances than any other player in the league and is nowhere near the top of the goal scoring charts, despite playing plenty at #9.

He went how many games without scoring? He was a running joke at one stage.

Talkback in the UK was months and months of Chelsea fans begging for his removal from the side.

Considering the transfer fee, his reputation, expectations - definitely biggest flop candidate.

Only eclipsed by Havertz and Ziyech really.

I'm sure glad that talk back listeners don't manage the team then.

Maybe watch some Chelsea games 👍

Ive watched every single one of them.

You can’t seriously say with a straight face he hasn’t been very disappointing?

The ratings also agree with me, I guess they don't watch every game as closely as you though?

He's basically all the worst bits of Bamford if you remove 9 goals....

He has been disappointing. But he's not been as bad as everyone wants him to be.

Certainly not flop of the season levels. Ziyech is above him for that and even then there's some worse than him.

Rhian Brewster cost Sheffield, a relegated team, 26m and he's started 12 games. 13 times off the bench.
van de Beek cost 39m and has made 2 starts in the league.
Willian is Willian.

Yeah Werner hasn't been brilliant, but there are more bigger flops than him this season.

I am not sure how people have commented more on Partey to be honest. He was 46m too.

160k I believe.
Partey or Saka?

What's a reliable source of player contracts? The site below came up top of a Google search and says Partey is contracted until 2022-23 on £250,000 a week and Saka is is contracted until 2023-24 £10,000 a week.

I watched Brentford a few times last season. Watkins stood out - a forward with pace, can hold it up, can finish. Benrahma showed some promise with his ball control but at around the same money as Watkins, he was overvalued. A flop but not top of the flops.

I was going off FM tbh.

I don't think Partey is on 250k.
