Chelsea board receive message after Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth

Chelsea lost 1-0 to Bournemouth on Saturday at Stamford Bridge, our fourth loss in five Premier League games.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jermaine Jenas has urged the Chelsea board to resist going on a spending spree in January despite the loss to Bournemouth.

“Chelsea need to decide what they want to be now for the next few years,” Jenas told BT Sport.

“They’re a team that has won titles and always chased for titles but they’ve got a team full of very good young players who need a year or two to develop into a team that challenges again.

“Do you throw all of that away and just buy stars? There’s no point. Stick with it. Don’t buy players, wait until the summer.

“Frank needs to keep this core group of players and let them develop and then eventually they will challenge. There’s no point in panicking. It’s ridiculous.”

Do you agree with Jenas?

  1. Chelsea should buy players

  2. I support this 💯
    Lampard is a fantastic manager who needs to prove himself ♥️

  3. I agree with this …… let’s focus on developing the young players we have coz they’re the best

  4. jenas and all the rest of them love Chelsea when we’re down and hate us when we’re up so their opinion isn’t worth shit — we need what we have lacked for 3 seasons: physicality and on field leadership not of the talking kind but of the doing kind.
    Ever since we sold diago ( I blame conte) we’ve lacked a bit of bully and without it we never win shit no matter how many years we wait –so lets just get on with it now

    I think Chelsea need to add a forward who is more experienced and who can score for out the box

  6. I agree 100%, though I have one challenge with our, I feel players or the team rather isn’t psyched to have a winning all mentality. There is no agency for goals in the team even when they have the capacity to score more goals.

  7. The Blues have always been fantastic regardless of how low sometimes our game is, it’s time Lampard made the right move. Too much talk is toxic!

    There should also be more goals coming from set pieces,that’s the back line putting there self about to score.

  9. Present Chelsea FC team lack what they are known for over the years-shot from outside the box, scoring from the corners as well as the indirect kicks. We’ve lost all the big teams we have already played this season with the big EPL teams just because of the reason above.

    Need 3 More players of experience. No.10,3,and 5

    There’s no harm concentrating on the core of young talent we have but it would be good to buy and strengthen some areas where we’re weak and need competition.

  12. we still need matured players to support the young players

  13. James Ireland : We need to get better with our set pieces at corners and free kicks .At Bourthmouth we had a lot corners and no real threat at goal not good enough ,we need to be more clinical in front of goal..I like the idea of given young player a chance but we need at least 3 new signing to strenting our team for champion league.

    I agree that we need to spend more time developing the youngsters and recognising this season at least is a rebuilding season. I always thought top 10 would be a good achievement for the season, but also 1 or 2 more experienced players to assist the youngsters may help, someone who plays in the style of De Bruyne, Mata or David Silva, someone who can pass quickly between the lines of two double decker buses or over the top to on running Pulisic/Hudson Odoi.

  15. Mature players they demand a starting line up, which will discourage the young onces.

    He doesn’t know what he is analyzing because the team wil not l a full relegation that what we for seeing;however, the team needs to bring in quality players with more confidence to reengineering the attack for more goals that what is lacking. moreover, the club is big for Lampard experience because he allowing some players more games time and playing with unconfident which putting pressure on the defense.

    I feel that they have to sell zouma. He has been allowing some sort of cheap goals.

  18. Christensen back with rudiger, azip out, James in, Emerson in kante deep 6 kovacik, mount, pulusic Abraham and batisyuwayi both play it gonna solve the problem of chelsea.

  19. This is the Premier League, there’s no room for development and improvement and waiting patiently for flowers to grow, this league keeps getting better and better, and if you can’t keep up, you will loose to teams like Bournemouth. I’m all for youth and want to see them succeed but if they want to play 1st team then they will have to bring their A game all the time… If not they can play more games in the academy, for now we need to buy more players with quality to improve the squad, let’s start by finding a proper GK.

    Jena’s is talking shit. We need stars in this team so our youth can adapt and learn from them. Players like cavani,donnarumma,savic,Sancho, zaha,niguez should be in this team. Jena’s wants us to fail but it won’t happen bro.

  21. Mikailu Makera | December 17, 2019 at 5:44 pm |

    Agreed 100% but we need a Big Strong Keeper.

  22. Andiega Brasio | December 17, 2019 at 8:21 pm |

    We need some mature players to support the young ones otherwise if they keep loosing even matches they are supposed to win, they will loose morale.

  23. Morris Tamba | December 18, 2019 at 4:37 pm |

    Yes, I believe Lampard’s style of developing young players is very welcoming. All Lampard needs now is timing, knowing when and where to make changes, ex. Abraham and Bethuwaiyee, in attack, Kovacic and Jorginho in midfield, etc. Only buying should be a goal keeper. Reason? Kepa does not support the defence or any player in case of error. The end is a goal against the team.
