Brady slams Chelsea transfer policy

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has taken a pop at Chelsea’s transfer policy.

Brady has slammed Chelsea for letting go Mohamed Salah, Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku.

“Name three of the outstanding half-dozen players in the league and surely Mo Salah, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku would be among them,” Brady wrote for her Sun column.

“Each of them was tried and inaccurately tested as promising professionals by Chelsea. Sold for a combined total of £58million, currently the lot would be worth around £400m at today’s ludicrous prices.It seems to me Chelsea’s system of signing the best talent and lending it out to all points of the compass is bound by its very voraciousness to have serious weaknesses.To fail to recognise one future great is unfortunate, to do so three times is shocking and has weakened Roman Abramovich’s club by default. With that trio in Conte’s side, he or any half-decent manager would be embracing glory rather than fifth place in the league.”

  1. Seriously, who cares what that fraud Brady thinks – about anything TBH.

  2. Yeah, and our policy is top notch!

  3. Such remarkable insight. Just as one would expect coming from the de facto CEO of a club with perhaps the best transfer policy in the PL.

    Or maybe not.

  4. Yeh , dead right , westhammer . In fact a bit of a silly thing to write ahead of this game away to Chelsea . Given Thier history with Ray Wilkins ( RIP respected player ) and what that will bring to the bridge come the game . She really needs to look at West Ham’s history of selling players . If she doesn’t know how to write constructively she should stop .

  5. At least they have the scouting system to sign them in the first place, look at our shambles.
    The other laughable thing is it’s like we haven’t ever sold anyone, our club sells every single player who has any sign of looking half decent.

    Anther piece of Brady rubbish which will make Chelsea say we won’t deal with her if we try to sign anyone.
    Surprising Sullivan hasn’t said they are all injury prone or too old anyway.

  6. This woman is a serious embarrassment to our club.

  7. It would be nice if she got transfers correct at West Ham before having a go at Chelsea is she in a dream world that she thinks West Ham’s transfer windows are great also has she seen Chelsea’s training centre they put money back into club does she know how that works why do West Ham have to put up with her ? What does she do apart from getting us home less and renting a running track

  8. As mentioned by others look at our record the last two seasons, Arnautovic aside we have been lacking in genuine quality investment, Jaoa Mario looks quality to me anyway but he is a loan, we need to be spending £30m plus on players, in defence and probably in goal.aswell as a genuine defensive midfielder..

  9. Judging her purely on the comments made about Chelsea’s transfer policy – she is 100% correct.
