Ruben Loftus Cheek

Again he showed nothing to justified his selection base on last game, like many games before can't remember when he had a good game which could gives us some hope that he will make it. Not sure why some ppl saying something about his talent etc..., clearly he isn't up to Chelsea standard and sooner we cash on him the better. He got enough chances tbh. What you think about his chances in our club? He can't play on wings, neither in midfield where you need someone who is clearly more dynamic type of player so once our injured players are back he should be sell, not even reason to keep him on bench.

He's massively overrated. Ghosts through too many games for my liking.

If only he attended too many games in the first place

Yeah this comment struck out as very weird. I doubt he’s had 5 games in a row and I doubt he’s started 20 games for us.

Neville's comments were out of touch and out of line
Never took into account that he's just comeback from one of the most severe injuries. Fail.

Don't think people grasp how debilitating and serious of an injury Achilles is (mentally & physically) to an explosive player (or maybe just ignorant), potentially career-ending injury.
Achilles injury is one of the highest grade injuries and shouldn't be taken lightly.
Overlooking that is nothing short of stupid, hes not the only one (so-called fans slandering him).

Thankfully we've got a level-headed manager that understands it is going to take time and is not expecting miracles displays straight away.
Acceleration should reappear over time.

Journey will not be easy for him.
Going to be tough, should be afforded patience...although his injury record is very concerning (can do without any more setbacks).

O don't doubt his ability but I do worry about his fitness. He reminds me of Jamie Redknapp, a good player but injury prone.

I get why people get frustrated with him but I don't think enough context is put on the fact he must be the most inexperienced,nearly, 25 year old in the PL.

It wasn't his fault that he didn't get regular football until he was nearly 22 and twelve injury ravaged months haven't done him any favours.

I reckon you probably won't see the best of him until he's had 2 or 3 months injury free 1st team football under his belt. Unfortunately at our club he's unlikely to get a run like that!

I really don't know what ability he has...honestly

It's all well and good saying he should be cut some slack because of bad injuries, but he's been injured for what feels like half of his top flight career so far.

Yes, he deserves sympathy and it's not easy to recover from such setbacks. But the point is there's a chance he's not good enough to play for Chelsea as a result of those setbacks. They may have done permanent damage ala Essien.

At some point you need to accept the harsh reality of the situation. If he can't be trusted to stay fit for a prolonged period of time and reach the levels we thought he was going to reach, then he should probably be sold next summer.

Were you referring to me in that 1st sentence CSTP?

We all find it tragic and disappointing that a player with so much promise has made so little progress. Imagine how gutted he must feel with the way his career has gone.

Gotta feel for him.

Here's hoping the man gets a break this season... probably his last chance, as the consensus here predicts.

Sounds like at least Frank has faith in him!

Good to hear from the manager!

Probably not. If he continues to bring him on while he underperforms then it will hurt us eventually. Not to mention other players who deserve to play ahead of him based on performance.
