    How much did you pay him per week?

    25,000 a week is 250,000 after 10 weeks and 1.25m after 50.

    Not quite the profit you predicted. lol

    lets assume it was 25,000 a week.

    We've had him about 50 weeks actually, did you look that up?

    5.5m - 1.25m = 4.25m profit. Bang Bang.

    I'm just glad that we've helped another young English talent to develop his game

    Maybe Villa can revive his career, let that be a lesson to these footballers who think they will move to Chelski & become a big name.

    15 appearances for Chelsea did more for him than 100 for Reading.

    Look at all the other players we've helped along the way:

    Scott Parker
    Glen Johnson
    Shaun Wright Phillips

    + more

    We're gonna have to disagree on Scott Parker.

    You pinched him from Newcastle and did fuck all for him. Its his own fault for seeing the green dollar bills, or the Russian money as the case may be, but as for 'developing' him- hardly.

    Wright Phillips is debateable as you finally started to use him, but with another change of manager who knows now, your apparently after Quaresma to replace him.

    lol i wasn't actually being serious about Scott Parker, i was joking about Sidwell aswell but I should have been clearer.

    I realise that Chelsea do buy players and hamper their development at times but people go over the top.

    I honestly think Sidwell gained something from being at Chelsea that he couldn't have got somewhere else.

    Arsenal turned him down after all.

    I'll agree that we ruined Scott Parker but he didn't have much potential in the first place.

    He's like Liam Miller, everyone still thinks he's young and improving but he's never got any better and he's not even young

    Shaun Wright Phillips we did improve though, and Glen Johnson could have pushed for a first team place
    if he didn't have a bad attitude

    EDIT: I'm gonna stick up for Chelsea whatever, like Alex does for United. This leads to saying stuff other people obviously don't agree with. Even if I know it's wrong I'm gonna stick with it.

    Cliffs:

    Was joking, but serious to a point.
    We ruied Scott Parker
    SWP has developed

    it's the players' own faults when they go for the green rather than the glory

    tbh if i was a footballer i'd do the same shit!

    I'll give you that. I don't think his gains were those of footballing skill, but mainly those of mentaility. It's the reason he left Arsenal in the first place - he wasn't prepared to wait and compete.

    Agree to disagree on Scott Parker. I though with the right development, he could have been an England squad member.

    I don't think SWP has developed at Chelsea, in actual fact I think he's very behind where he should be, had he been playing and continuing the upward curve he was on just before he left Man City.

    I think Chelsea ruins player's careers because its likely if you dont break into the first team you hardly get any appearances. They have players like Alex, Bridge, Shevchenko, Cudicini, Obi Mikel and others all sitting on the bench wasting away.
