No one could have seen willians awful drop in form. He was a consistent performer for Chelsea and you knew what you were getting from him every game. Here he’s just fallen off a cliff.Every club does it of course. My concern is that we don't seem to have learned our lesson from the last time.
The likes of Mustafi and Sokratis we've rightfully wiped the slate clean with but have replaced them with Willian, Cedric and Mari who we'll face the same situation with over the next 2-3 seasons. There was absolutely no need to give any of those guys the wages they're currently claiming. That's not the players fault either obviously.
Unfortunately it happens, you can’t blame the club for bringing him in. The guy has massive experience in big games & the PL. The only thing you can criticise the club for is giving him a 3 year deal. 2+ the option of a 3rd is what should have been on the table. But then Willian wouldn’t have joined.
