A one-time top Chelsea prospect might perhaps come back to haunt the Blues eventually. Is Newcastle United’s Lewis Hall good enough to cause damage to commanding teams, or prevent imperious opposition sides from creating? Meanwhile an unofficial release clause for forgotten CFC striker and Roma loanee Romelu Lukaku is explained by The Pride of London.
Lewis Hall really impressed me as a young, up-and-coming Chelsea player. He could play in a number of roles very well; we are all aware that versatility is becoming more than coveted, even essential in the elite modern game. Naming Hall’s best or most likely eventual position on the pitch isn’t easy. Although, flexibility is ironically partly what made him such an appealing and promising footballer: the sheer quality to play in a number of capacities successfully in the Premier League. At such a tender age, having English top-flight composure is admirable and eye-catching. And he only featured on a few EPL occasions for the Blues.
If I had to name the area you’ll see the 19-year-old grow into and make his own in time, I would designate left-wingback. Yet his accomplished passing and vision would suffice for to a place in the middle of a competitive park. Newcastle are depleted at present with a fitness plague ravaging the Magpies. Therefore Eddie Howe would love to involve Hall against his old club, but the Slough-born man is ineligible because his transfer was classed as a loan with options. Chels’ fans will hope that Hall doesn’t pop up to score or run games versus them in the near future. My choice would have been retaining him at Stamford Bridge.
What is going on with Romelu Lukaku and will he leave Chelsea with a cut-price transfer?
Ties are finally expected to be permanently cut between CFC and Lukaku in 2024. Blues bosses will allow him to leave for a lower fee due to a reported ‘gentleman’s agreement‘.
