Chelsea are signing players just for the sake of it. It will result in player potential not being fulfilled and trouble in the dressing room. How are they going to fit all these young eager to play players in their team. They will sign Moses to and that will be another added to the list.

How is signing Hazard and Oscar "signing players just for the sake of it" ? They are quality players.

I am not talking about them two. I am talking about the likes of Moses and Marin and Piazon and De Bruyne.

He will need a couple of years to adjust and "bulk up". He will get kicked all over the pitch.

I think Kagawa is going to be a decent signing, if he can score goals like this:

Does Mata, Silva, Nasri, Suarez, Walcott, Lennon, Modric, Aguero, Ben Arfa, Bale, Nani or Modric get "kicked all over the pitch" ? Did most of the above need "a couple of years" to settle into the EPL? So what makes you think Oscar won't set the EPL alight straight away?

And John, Chelsea are signing quality players I would worry about who Liverpool have bought and are being linked to if I was you! Dembele, Borini, Allen, Scott Sinclair etc, hardly world class or top 4 material.

Chelsea are buying players for the sake of it which is not healthy for the dressing room. They are buying all these young guys who cost a lot and who have massive ego's and will want to play every week but the truth is that they all cant.

Liverpool have signed one player so I dont think your point makes sense. There is a difference being linked with someone and actually buying someone. We are also linked with Gaston Ramirez who is a very good young player who is good enough to get us back into the top 4. Borini is a young lad who can either be top class or totally **** but we cannot say until we see him play for Liverpool. He was great at Swansea so I am happy with that signing.

Well we will just have to wait and see, I think Hazard and Oscar are gonna be great in the EPL.

With all respect, playing good for Swansea doesn't amount to being a top class player.
