Which is fair. No one should be guaranteed playing time. I’m happy to be honest. Huge ego, huge wages and a player that thinks he is better than what he is in my opinion.

Spot on appraisal!

The rumour is that we lost out on this one as Roy wouldn't guarantee him playing time

How did that conversation go?

Batshuayi "I'm looking to leave Chelsea as I want to play week in/week out in order to get into the Belgium team"

Roy "Unfortunately, I've got two strikers who are almost always injured and when fit they have consistently failed to score. I'm afraid I'm going to have to stay loyal to them. If I keep doing exactly the same thing that's not been working for 18 months then I'm sure there will be a huge turnaround in Benteke's fortunes soon. However, if they are both injured and I don't have Wilf, Andros, or the guy I loaned from relegated Swansea available you might just get a chance."

Well get you on the books for half a season but if you are as ineffective as you have been elsewhere don't expect anything more than impact sub

You forgot ....... and as you've scored 1 league goal in 15 apearences for Valencia, I'll guarantee you play every week...

This. I was just thinking the same thing and wondering whether to post. How could he not guarantee him playing time? I think all managers say that to players when they really want them. Something like "I'm counting on you so you will get plenty of time". This is basic strategy for convincing a player

Just hope we get in someone on top! Benteke/Connor does not fill me with goals en masse. Watched the Everton game last nite - this Lookman and Brook (Bournemouth) are both awesome. Why we not (at least) try some more Academy players - it can not be any worse when it comes to goal scoring!

Both were not nurtured at Everton and Bournemouth. Lookman played 45 games for Charlton and Brooks 30 games for Sheff Utd. However they do show that players from the Champs and League 1 can make the step up. Can't recall us ever buying a player from either leagues who had never previously played in the PL in 6 seasons.

"Thanks for the update Roy. Can I have two or three seconds to decide as it's a very difficult decision for me. $hitehole Park in January or Monaco? Er um ..."

Agreed its a tough call. Sun sexy women all the glamour of a Hollywood lifestyle or he could go to Monaco instead. Mind you I think tax free wages might just have swung it.

I don't agree, how can you guarantee playing time to any player, let alone a striker who can loose form at any time, and with his present scoring record, it seems he already has.

if the bloke said 'will you guarantee me a start' every week, then our answer would have to have been 'no'. Not more complicated than that.

he could easily be a dud, and we'd have to play him. would be insane and be dreadful for the dressing room.
