Ben Chilwell: A possible star in the making

Recommended Posts

Still got plenty of work to do to live up to this profile. End product from his marauding and improving his defending in particular but he won't learn unless he has a long run in the team and we can forgive him for the  odd lapse in view of his age. He is already a valuable asset and you can only see him accumulating value as he develops. His attitude and maturity are commendable and will stand him in good stead.

Think he will break through properly this season- seems to fit Puel's system, Fuchs is getting on a bit and he's hit the ground running.

 

Hopefully see him in the England set up before long!

His got time to develop, look a different player already this season.

 

People forget he has only play 40 games as a professional, in one of the toughest leagues in the world.

Drove me mad at times last season with his positioning. He'll definitely improve and there's a brilliant player in there, just a bit raw at the moment.

I really rate him. Won't ever get the hate for him. 

 

He has already improved a lot in my eyes and will continue now we have Puel and footballers moving about coming for a pass. A lot of trouble came from Chilwell making a run and everyone just standing still or not running into the box for a cross. He has a great engine too. 

But Yer Da still reckons Fuchs is better, he has a one syllable chant.

His style fits in perfectly with Puel's attacking intent, and you feel that will only improve his attacking ability, especially as his main two friends at the club are a winger and attacking midfielder, but it's only if he improves his defending and defensive decision making that'll make him one of our best players. At 21, with a supportive manager and first team football, it's looking promising.

It looks like Chilwell has a higher ceiling than Leighton Baines

He has improved since becoming a regular which is great to see and looks like he will have a great career. Needs to practice his crossing though.

definitely getting better. but he’s spent two years playing a couple of good games and following it up spending the next month looking like he’s never seen a football pitch before in his life. if he can regularly play how we know he can actually play then he’ll be quality. hope so.

I love Ben Chilwell....just wish he could learn to kick with his right-foot.  Never seen a more one-footed player playing at such a high level

Lol funny reading a post on Chillwell with everyone in it praising him and biging him up. 3 months ago was a very different story just shows what a fickle bunch we are.

Or maybe the fact that he has had a decent pre-season and looks to be improving?  The brand of football we are playing suits him and its good that the fans are now starting to see that he is improving.

Did you ever see Arjen Robben play?

The biggiest down fall to Bens game is his light passing style to other players

and his direct passing. He puts little to no pace on the ball. floppy passing

He's great carrying the ball forward and looks great in games like United where the opposition rarely attack. 

 

He's not become a great defender over night and has a lot of work to do in that area. 

 

Good wing back, still a suspect defender. His good understanding with Gray and Maddison could make our left extremely effective going forward though.

Things are all coming together quite nicely for us down the left.

 

Chilwell is now undeniably our first choice, so he'll be getting the run of games that he needs to work on his weak points. There's plenty of talent there, just needs refining.

 

Gray is in almost the exact same situation. Shown flashes of brilliance in the past, but never really had that consistent run of games to establish himself. With Mahrez out of the picture he'll only improve.

 

Maddison needs no further explanation. Clearly a fantastic talent.

 

 

3 close mates with great potential playing in adjacent positions and who are all coming into prominence at the same time. It's exciting stuff. It's a big if, but if they all keep progressing as expected (and Vardy keeps going), we could genuinely end up with 4/5 England players over the next few years..
