Chill Winston!!! GLC will get his chance and Jose has said over Xmas he will get opportunities. Hopefully means we can shove Eriksen in the reserves until he fucks off.

Jose is a pretty straight forward manager, show your willing to work for him or you wont play for him. If Dele stops performing for a game or 3 he will be dropped.

From Football London when asked about Foyth:

"He claims that opportunities may come this month, : “There are other players that I like very, very much and I try to give some stability to the team and there is no space for everyone, so we look to other boys. Ryan Sessegnon, Lo Celso, Walker-Peters, we have other players with potential to play that they didn’t have yet the opportunity to play. I would say let’s wait for the end of December for the accumulation of matches and for sure opportunities will come.”

Encouraging.

Foyth isn't going to get much game time unfortunately, we just have to be realistic, Mourinho may talk like he's gonna give everyone a chance but these players need to play consistently and some of them won't have the chance to, it's just how it is.

He also name checks him in with the other centrebacks so he obviously sees him in that position.

Criminal if that happens. I see GLC as more of a CM than an AM, and I don't think Mourinho really likes the traditional 10 type player. He relied on Lampard for goals at Chelsea and probably expected the same from Pogba at Utd.. He didn't waste any time binning Mkhitaryan from Utd either and never really gave Mata too much of a shot at either Chelsea or Utd. Hoping GLC gets his chance in CM.
yet Ozil and sneijder smashed it under him

Jose also played Oscar and Cesc at Chelsea (often in the same team).

Edit: and Deco at Porto

We'll sign him on January. It's a cheap price, and Levy knows it
If it doesn't work at the end, we can still sell him at a high price, maybe higher

We’re in December and he has a total of 267 minutes played. What can he possibly have done in that amount of time.
I agree he hasn’t had enough time but even in the short cameos I’m just not sure what he’s going to offer.

Just don’t think he fits in

I think he will get more meaningful minutes eventually, it won't take too long for coaching staff to realize that Moura is better off the bench or that Winks and Sissoko can't play in midfield two. If Sanchez keeps up like that Foyth could get some minutes too. It will be hardest for Sessegnon I think.
