Just because he was head and shoulders above everyone at our academy when he was 15 does not guarantee he will turn into a worldie footballer. He was a wonder kid that’s all. What Premiership teams would he get into seriously? Let alone Chelsea who are willing to spend £80m on the likes of Fafana.I think he needs Potter to be in the job come next summer to be in with a chance of the first team.
I'm desperate for him to make it at Chelsea, and I think he would have done if given more time in and around the squad the past 2 years. He is a product of the Chelsea system, where players like De Bruyne leave looking worse than they are because the managers have to play the players the owners wasted sh*tloads on instead.
To suggest he is championship level is laughable IMO. He was head and shoulders above anyone else we've produced in our academy, including current championship standard Jordan Storey for comparison. Ollie has worked so hard since leaving us to get where he is, but Amps had that natural talent I've not seen from anyone else.
