    He is one of my fave prospects for the future. He's getting better game after game.

    Hoping Carlo uses him quite a bit this season, he deserves his chance.

    We've played him out of position when he has gotten the chance, and Carlo seems to be favouring Josh McEachran right now. Gael Kakuta's evidently the most talented attacking youngster in the Premiership, but we should be thinking about playing him just behind Drogba and just in front of Mikel and Essien. Let him work his magic in the middle. He's done well when he has played and was brilliant at the recent U19 Euro's, about time we threw him in the deep end and see how he copes.

    what i enjoy is that his work-ethic and off-the-ball is magnificent.

    mmm,cant see him working behnidthe striker in the 4-3-3 formation,he must adapt to the right wing unless Carlo brings back the diamond

    What position does he play for? It's refreshing for Chelsea to have a good youngster coming through.

    Refreshing?...Well, that's one way to look at it...Don't forget, this is the Lens youth player that was controversially bought by Chelsea a couple of years ago.

    He's an undeniable talent though
    Paolo Maldini - "In my opinion, Messi should win the Ballon D'Or each year. He's an unbelievable player."

    We got three - Gael Kakuta, Josh McEachran and Jeffrey Bruma. Speaking of Bruma, he's FAR superior to John Terry at the same age. Speaks volumes about his potential. In fact, i'm tempted to say he's the brightest future of all three.

    Him or McEachran will be captain, and the other the vice captain I reckon. Good stuff.

    Can't forget van Aanholt too, the successor to Cole.
