Patrick Bamford - Another player with massive potential being sold without ever playing for Chelsea.

Patrick Bamford is expected to sign for Middlesborough for a fee of around £6m rising to £10m having not played a single game for Chelsea since he joined in 2012.

There is always arguments for and against Chelsea's loan policy over the years and with Bamford in particular, it will cause debate amongst the Chelsea faithful. Having signed for Chelsea four years ago from Nottingham Forest for a fee of £1.5m, the player leaves four years on after being farmed off out on loan a massive SIX times during that period.

Milton Keynes Dons, Derby County, Middlesborough, Crystal Palace, Norwich and Burnley are the clubs that Bamford has been loaned out to and he finally gets a chance to become settled for life in the Premier League where he made the biggest impact - Middlesborough having won the Championship Player of the Year under Aitor Karanka a couple of seasons ago.

From a business point of view as far as Chelsea Football Club is concerned, Bamford would be considered a success having made a profit of £3.5m to begin with, possibly increasing to £10m with the various add-ons the club would insist upon with any deal being finalised.

However, there are those amongst us that will bemoan the situation and become frustrated that yet another natural talent has come and gone at Stamford Bridge without being given a chance.

I understand that Bamford has made little or virtually no impact in the Premier League in his time at various clubs on loan and that is for a number of reasons. People will immediately look at his stats, his lack of playing time and subsequent goals and come to the opinion that he is not of Premier League standard. I ask the question "How on earth are you supposed to know unless they are given a real chance?"

Look at Harry Kane at Tottenham for example, another natural goalscorer. His potential was there for all to see and Tottenham had no problems with putting him into the team and look at what has happened. All it takes is a chance and playing time. People like Bamford will never lose the goalscorers instinct that players like him are born with, it's just being given the time to adjust to the pace and power of our game, to play on regular basis and to be given the chances to make a name for himself.

I have little doubt that Bamford will become a success story at Middlesborough in the Premier League. It's just a shame that once again, it couldn't be here!

  1. It's all fine. If he turns into something special we'll just buy him back for £60m, Emanalo will be rewarded for his unique negotiating skills and Conte blamed for letting him go in the first place. No worries.

  2. I maybe could see something in what you say cd,but I ve always had the opinion that come what may if the talent is there it will come/out,no doubt to get in any club set/up you have to be of a good/standard,but that alone will only get you so far,having seen him play Banmford I m afraid along with many others I feel, falls short of what standard CFC now require their players to be at,,that,s not to say he/they won,t make it as a pro/footballer,butthe bar at Chelsea is set that high/now,I thought I was a good/player,but I had a really good/friend who put not just me,but the rest of his schoolteam in their place,just to say he went on to play with QPR and then England,the difference was like black@white,we might lose a few prospect,s along the way ie Debruyne for one,but as Norman says we can always buy them back if we feel the need.

    1. Marsh or Bowles?.

      I also thought I was a good player and, like you, had a friend who put me and the rest of our school team to shame. He went on to play for The Rothbury Arms public house until they realised he was no good either!

No I,m originally from ;Sarf London; Norman as was my good friend,who was not just a great/footballer but was a great all/round Athlete,but he was part of that team,he sadly saw less of his friends once his Football Career took/off big time,we just used to bump into one another now and again,when he had the nerve to re-visit ;sarf/london; my lips are sealed,I Know Nothink.
