“It is hard not to be excited by Timo Werner for a kick off,”
“He scores in his first outing for the Blues against Brighton and then follows it up with a superb striker’s goal for Germany against Spain.
“He could well start the season on fire. Both he and Kai Havertz could take a little while to settle in, though I doubt it, but when they do the possibility of goals from both is extraordinary.
“Considering the fact that last season I felt we should build the next few years of the club around Christian Pulisic and his potential, we now have three of that standard and that is before you even begin to consider Hakim Ziyech and the quality kids that have come through up front, such as Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
“It is amazing to think we have let Pedro and Willian go and to be honest, is anyone at all worried about the gap being left behind by their absence? They were wonderful players for us and it is not disrespectful in any way, but it does speak volumes for the recruitment policy this summer."
“The possibilities are endless up front, so goodness knows how Frank Lampard fits all these players into the team, and of course he can’t. He will, however, have huge options on the bench to change things this season if plan A in any given match is not working.
“Frank has not been slow in making changes when he has had to, and more importantly, he has an incredible strike rate when it comes to his substitutions having a positive effect.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the start of one of the most exciting periods in the club’s history.”
