Cole Palmer’s best week as a footballer so far, but he’ll be calm – Talk Chelsea

Just like the media will beat a person when they are down, they will also give them the world when they are up. The media will media.

This week, during another boring international break through a domestic football season, all I am seeing is massive praise for Cole Palmer, which of course is great.

But you can bet your bottom dollar that if Palmer has a bad game or two, the narrative will soon change to the complete opposite end of the scale and they would be entirely on his back.

And guess what? Palmer, a 21-year-old player who has only just got his first ever senior international callup, will have bad games. It’s important as a fanbase that we remember this and try and stay a little bit grounded.

I’ve never had a doubt about Palmer’s ability and I was a huge advocate of signing him the minute I broke the exclusive news of our interest in him. I knew he is a top player and can easily become world class. I knew the ceiling he has and the quality he he comes with. I knew he would make an instant impact at our club and I will continue to have no doubt at all about his ability and what he can become with us, even if he has a bad game or two. I truly believe in Palmer as a player and as a person.

It’s great to celebrate success though, and what a week/few months this guy has had at our club. He scored against his former club to earn us a more than deserved draw on Sunday, and then the next day he was on the phone to Gareth Southgate who was telling him to pack his bags to head to the England squad. That’s a deserved testament to the impact he has made since arriving at Chelsea for a bargain fee in the summer.

Will City regret selling him? Yes, I have no doubt about that, despite the immense quality they have. But they will also know that he had to leave at that time. He already grew his wings, and he was ready to fly. Pep knew that, Palmer knew that, and thankfully, Joe Shields and Chelsea knew that.

He is exactly what we needed at Chelsea and he has…
