When it was announced that FIFA had handed Chelsea a two-transfer window ban, the news was greeted in either of two fashions.

There were those that thought it’d see the end of Chelsea as a top-six team, at least until the ban was served and there were those that saw it as a blessing in disguise and a chance, at long last, for Chelsea to give the youngsters that have come through the system the chance to shine at Chelsea as opposed to going out on loan.

At this stage of the season, it really does seem as if the two-window transfer ban was a blessing in disguise.

There’s something about Chelsea this season, a togetherness, something that has been missing in recent times.

The youngsters, having been given their chance, are shining, a fact demonstrated that Gareth Southgate’s latest England squad contains FIVE of them.

But there is a dilemma looming large on the horizon.

With the Court of Arbitration for Sport set to discuss the severity of our ban, it could well be lifted in time for the January transfer window.

One source, Talksport, is of the opinion that Chelsea, guided by Frank Lampard, will not if the ban is lifted, necessarily make any signings, such is the impact the youngsters have made.

Besides, would it not be better to wait until the summer when you take into account the old adage about January buys being panic buys.

If you were in charge, what would you do if the ban were to be lifted?

Would it be a case of buy or don’t buy?

If The Ban Is Lifted Before January, Should Lampard Buy?

Yes!

Yes!

No!

No!

Please feel free to drop your viewpoint into the comment facility beneath this article and we’ll see what the consensus of opinion among the Vital Chelsea fraternity is.

  • As opined by different schools of thought! Chelsea need players in some department that make the club more competitive in it’s pursuits for excellence,especially in the defence and attack. Take emotions away, Oliver geroud,Alonso should be shown the way out. Pedro and William should stay to guide the young lad in the smooth transition. The Old Guys had paid their dues and Should continue their careers elsewhere.

  • I would urge Chelsea not to buy in January, allow the current squad to gel even more, to underline how good the team is, Lampard is already having selection headache with the likes of Ruben loftus, Rudiger yet to return ..that way this young players would form the crust of a very formidable team.. Wait till the summer to effectively evaluate the team hence determine the kind of players we would be looking for plus the likes of Pedro, drink water, Victor moses, Bakayoko on Co could be sold or used as make weight.. We’re seeing the barça of England in the making

  • we don’t need any new signings in Jan,, our young stars have progressively continued to blend in well with each other,,

    let the coach give them enough time to proof themselves & I’m sure they are capable of delivering,,,

    my opinion is that the baseless &_useless ban shouldn’t b lifted but rather should be extended,,,

    it was & its still a blessing to us at Chelsea,,, forever the blues,,,,,,

  • I think that it would the best for “Super” Frank Lampard to continue with the blind of youth and experience for the remaining of the season. Already Frank believe in the team now and the team is really doing good. There is no need for one or two signings.

  • We really don’t need to buy, it’s a good thing happening in the club now and then lads have shown they are equal to the task…no need to buy now, let’s see how summer would be

  • For me, there is no need to any new player. The team as presently constituted are very good. There is high level of cohesion and and understanding among them. Introducing new players could bring unnecessary division among them. Moreover the way they are now, they are a team for the future.

  • I think Lampard is good to go with this youngsters.
    He should keep his tab on them and make them a great players, just like himself and JT

  • Sell Abraham, Willian and bring Moses Victor back. Chelsea will carry the league.
    Well Chelsea should look into it’s defend. It’s not wisdom to be pouring water into a basket and you expect a full container. It will be bad the day an opponent’s defence will be impregnable.

  • The team is presently playing with the desired style and energy and we are always getting the desired result, so opinion is no buy,good luck.

  • I feel we should sign a left back.because that is our weakness and we don’t have any academy graduate coming out from the left back position since emerson is out and alonso is a write off.

  • Chelsea club should develop on the youngsters at its disposal for now because the young guys are doing excellent well. The club should make out to train together properly and focus more on the defence of the team. The youngsters are absolutely impressive this season and so they just need encouragements and perhaps inculcate more discipline and love into the team. Chelsea club should forget about buying new players for now.

  • No need 4 Chelsea to buy any player this January. Let give the young boys enough chance to prove themselves pls.. Rudiger nd loftus cheek are lyk new signing. At least after this season,then we will be sure of the areas to reinforce. More Grace to frank, more grace to the squad. Chelsea even in my text world.

  • Chelsea club should develop on the youngsters at its disposal for now because the young guys are doing excellent well.
