The Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are very excited about this youngster…
Much has been made in the Football Transfer Tavern of Chelsea’s failure to develop young players in recent years.
Constant chopping and changing of managers has given the Chelsea brass a short-term view of proceedings – meaning that very little attention has been placed on developing players for the long-term.
There have been calls in recent years from the Chelsea fans in the Tavern to place more attention on the promotion of young players – and there is one player that Antonio Conte might not be able to ignore.
Tammy Abraham was not a particularly well known name amongst the Chelsea faithful, with Chelsea’s near 40-strong loan army reducing each player to a statistic rather than a prospect. But that is definitely not the case now…
The Chelsea man was sent on loan to Bristol City ahead of this season, and he has taken no time at all to settle in to life in the Football League.
He has been absolutely prolific for the club, as seen in the below tweet…
Tammy Abraham's 7 shots for Bristol City this season:

He has already scored a hugely impressive six goals so far this season – enough to rival any striker in the entire Football League.
Perhaps more impressive is his conversion rate – he has scored those 6 goals from just 7 shots!
Our landlord thinks Chelsea might have finally found the player to make it through the club’s youth system…
One Chelsea fan leaning against the bar has been talking up the pairing of Costa and Abraham…a mouth watering prospect.
The Bristol City fans have been celebrating his goals in the Football Transfer Tavern over the last few weeks – could the Chelsea fans follow suit next season?
Chelsea fans – we want to hear from you! Are you excited about Abraham? Will he ever get a chance?
