New-look Spurs will kill off Man City’s title challenge for good
Unless you’re a Chelsea fan, there’s a high chance you probably would have gone “Reece who?” after reading the sentence above.
For the uninitiated, James is a 19-year-old right-back who is regarded as one of the brightest prospects at the Blues – which is saying something, considering that the Stamford Bridge outfit has a habit of amassing young talent in their ranks, just so they can send them out on loan and never play them.
James, however, appears to be different from the rest of the wonderkids in Chelsea’s database, with many touting the England U20 international as the natural successor to Cesar Azpilicueta.
Having only just returned to full-training following an ankle injury, James is the focus of our attention this week as we analyse how prepared he is to help Chelsea this season.
FBS says: The sun is finally shining on James and his footballing career again. Knows he needs the backing of brand name sponsors in order to succeed. Explains why his fingers on the left hand are in the shape of a tick.
FBS says: Now that James doesn’t need the crutches, he has no qualms dropping it like a hot potato. Perfect summary of what Chelsea will do to Azpilicueta this season.
FBS says: James looks bemused and puzzled at something he’s seen. Probably spotted Azpilicueta arguing heatedly with manager Frank Lampard over something…
FBS says: James giving the thumbs-up while running. Wants to make sure everyone knows that he’s completely fine despite the picture making it look like his right leg has been amputated.
