    Planning for the future - Jordy Brouwer

    LFC has confirmed signing striker Jordy Brouwer, a Dutch U19 international from Ajax. In a year or two there may be no need to spend big in the market as these youngsters come through. Hopefully they are good enough. Add this to Daniele Padelli and Emiliano Insua who were signed during this window. And we have been talking of Carson, Paul Anderson, Nabil El Zhar, Lee Peltier, Craig Lindfield and others. The future may to be bad after all.

    • Its good we've got im

      o and in regards to

      'We don't need to bring in players for the future because we can just buy the best which is why we will always finish above Liverpool and Man U.
      Our dominance will carry on for a long time.

      Jose !'

      Your second, possibly not for long :) When the money goes, so does Chelsea, relegated as all players will have to be sold, to make sure the wage bill doesnt put them into backruptcy. The difference is my friend, that liverpool either buy (very cheaply) or train home grown talents to the bests of their abillities to produce legends like Gerrard, he wasnt signed for millions of pounds, he just found it an honnor to play for a club he loved.

      • A rough diamond is worthless and not eye catching until it is polished and cut. Of course, some may not turn out to be what they supposed to be, but if you hit one in ten, then you will be laughing all the way to the bank!

        Spotting talents is the same. You cast your net as wide as possible, use your experience, check the pedigree, and then take the ultimate risk. Remember, no risk no gain.

        Unfortunately some people only want to mention the success stories but never look at the number of times the selection process sometimes could go very wrong!

        Lastly, to the Chelskis, I would rather pay a decimal of their investment on an unheard of potential then to pay 30m for a diamond that turns out to be a piece of coal in disguise!

    • i agree the future looks good - as long as potential becomes talent

      how many young players look good only to become nothing?

    • Based on last saturdays performance any half decent centre back could get in Chelsea's squad as proved by the fact that even Crouch ripped them to pieces.

    • Well you have got to admire your bare faced cheek when you have just been butt f***ed at anfield and your high priced prima donnas could not even manage to take a free kick properly.
      You would have been a better side without Ballack Cole & Schev.

    • I doubt that unless you count the worthless cup cause you ain't winning the EPL don't stand a chance in the champions league and probably won't make the FA cup final either.

    • We signed Agger at 19, Sissoko at 20, Gonzalez at 20, Riise at 21, Alonso at 22, Reina at 22 and Carra and Gerrard were youth players thats 8 of our regular first team squad wer young players how many do you want?

      Better than signing a 30 year old for 30 million who finally cuts it aginst a league 2 side lol!

    • Mate you cant have more trophies if u win nothing... Liverpool is champions league and Barca are beatable every team is. I hope Spurs or Arsenal beat the livin shite out of ya in the carling cup. coz u wont have a slight chance with anything else.

    • WHY IS IT THAT chelshit seem to attract idiots and fools to their fan base... Sissoko is young,bought from another club and he could walk straight into most top club midfields.All Chelshit do is poach as many players as they can( shaun wright-phillips) comes to mind,so not to let other clubs buy these players and leave to sweat it out on the bench.

    • B4 you come on our message boards to critisise us you might do us (scousers) the curtesy of learning the fucking language first you illiterate chelski chimp!!!!!!!!!!

    • This Dutch kid is going to be another player who we never hear about in 2-3 years time. Ajax released him for a reason: he wasn't good enough! And I'm quite confident that the Ajax coaches and youth team developers can sort out the good 'uns from the bad 'uns.

      How many times have we heard how we'eve signed the next big player: Biscan, Cheyrou, Pongolle, La-Tallec, Diao - all of them rubbish! This Brouwer signing does not excite me at all.....

      Still, could have been worse - we could have signed Lucas Neil on 60k a week....! Ha Ha Ha....West Ham have just been mugged!
