Unlikely I know but I still wouldn't bet my life against Sisto joining us. MB is hardly likely to say, "oh yes, what a great idea, I'll try and convince him to come to Brentford" when asked about him on social media/in the public domain. His old FCM manager has left, Rasmus is working for us now, we have a full Danish international in Bjelland... So, I can still dream we'll get this pretty special player!
Could this be a clue as to why the FCM head coach left..? In any case If Sisto came to us. Well, incredible but mceachran's incredible enough for me! :)

EXCLUSIVE: #BrentfordFC - #Chelsea England U21 midfielder Josh McEachran perm 4 yr deal http://bit.ly/McEachranSigns #cfc
Would be an excellent replacement for Pritchard - although he's more similar style of player to Toral, but with lots more experience having played for the Chelsea first team and loan spells in the Championship and Europe

Izzy Brown, highly rated Chelsea striker has started following Brentford on Twitter.

That would be a slightly awesome signing.

The media rave about Bumford, but this guy is well above him.
Totally different players.

Bamford is a tart but scores goals, Josh was seen as the first Chelsea bred super kid who would become a superstar but he never quite fulfilled his massive potential.
I'm excited that we're the ones who could kick start his career.

Boro and Watford fans do not rave about him, backward and sideways passer of the ball
checking his stats 105 app .. 0 goals :eek:

Presumably he is also a stats based signing that marinus gave the nod? Or do we think it was a MD referral?

EXCLUSIVE: #BrentfordFC - #Chelsea England U21 midfielder Josh McEachran perm 4 yr deal http://bit.ly/McEachranSigns #cfc
Quotes from a couple of Watford fans posted elsewhere, they're not hot on him,

"McEachran is a talented player but he's really lightweight. Very slight/small lad, and given that he's a centre mid he found it tough on loan at ourselves and Boro."

"The only thing McEachran can do is pass backwards or occasionally sideways, sh*t player"

"I just think he found playing in this league a bit overwhelming/Intimidating"

"The type of player that gets churned out of academies these days a dime a dozen but often don't have the tools to succeed in the first team professional game as they don't have a rounded game and find first team football overwhelming. McEachran was also overhyped and given a lucrative contract before he'd achieved anything, which would have reduced his hunger/increased the pressure on him. The same thing has happened to Chalobah.

He needs to find a niche at Brentford and get his career back on track after loads of loans that never worked out."

I can certainly see their point. Not overly fussed about him personally, but you just have to admire Mr Benham's desire in making us a force to be reckoned with in the world of football these days.

If he is headed to GP I don't think he'll have been signed as the replacement for big Nick or Tommy Smith. Goals wouldn't be his role.

Thing is we don't know how he was told to play by the,at the time,Watford manager and as far as Boro he probably just watched the ball sail over his head for 90mins :)

Midfielders who have flopped at other clubs but looked superb for us include Adeyemi, Forster and Sav.
This lad was rated better than all of them at Chelsea as a kid and I have faith in MB and system that gets in youngsters who are a good fit and flourish at Brentford so let's just wait and see

Friend of mine is on the Vitesse supporters board and was gutted when I told him we were signing Josh. Worked his way into their team last season and played a big part. So not all loans haven't worked out. When you have the expectation that was once on his shoulders and it doesn't quite happen, I am sure it can weigh very heavily on tyoung shoulders. Those who really have it take that wobble, mature and comeback, the others fall away. So let's wait and see if the promise he showed at the backend of last season is the beginning of Josh's comeback, he has the ability, now it's about the mentality.

35 games in one Championship season for Middlesbrough as a 19 year old. That wouldn't have happened if he was sh*t.

Agreed. He does have potential to get better and know that he is at a club for the next four years, if the transfer goes ahead.

Just had a quick google and 'apparently' his salary in 2014 was £30k a week!

He is on a fortune at Chelsea. Is he taking a big pay cut or is this blowing a hole in our pay structure.

Spot on buddy! Love him or hate him Bamford is a quality striker.
Three years ago (maybe less) the media were talking about Josh as the future of English football.

Agreed, also the fact that he's had a bit of adversity, had to "rough" it a little bit to get a game again, is absolutely the type of scenario that drives players on. I know for a fact that this will have played in his favour with Rasmus Ankersen. I'm no regular reader, but if anyone hasn't read it yet, I urge you to read the Gold Mine Effect, by Mr Ankersen himself - it's absolute quality and he is the real deal.

I can't quite believe the set up we currently have - this is going to be beyond most of our wildest dreams.

Buckle up chaps, this is going to be one hell of a ride!!!!!

It'll be fascinating to see how this wealth of talent will be deployed, both in pre-season and when the season starts. Will there be a slow introduction of the newcomers to get them used to the tempo of the Championship with an initial reliance on those who saw us to 5th place?i Is it safe to assume that Andreas Bjelland will be a guaranteed starter? What of the likes of Andy Gogia? Who's going to fall by the wayside? Who's going to be sold for a fortune? Wow, the dynamics of this club are staggering at the moment. Time for a spot of team forecasting?

Re : Josh McEachran- Chelsea mate tells me he was good enough early on to have his own song..

"Josh McEachrans having a party
Bring the Vodka and the Charlie!"

Before people fret - This wasn't a comment on Josh's lifestyle just a pub song that took off at Marseille away.
Said He said started well but tailed off through lack of opportunity.

Personally I think this signing could be a gem but the only thing that worries me is that he had several unsuccessful loans in England where the general consensus seems to be that he was too lightweight and then goes to vitesse where he shines in a league that isn't particularly physical. He clearly has the talent but just maybe needs to toughen up. Gets my backing though and as is said could be a real gem

Loads of clubs sing that, Southampton sang that about Boruc and was adopted by BMuff when they signed him, crap song
