if he hasn't got the bottle to come and play for a big side then we're probably better off without him anyway.

Chelsfan - thanks again for your comment.

We do want players with the determination and stomach to play for a top side. I can't help but think that some players - maybe Wright-Phillips is a good example - haven't made it at Chelsea not necessarily because they weren't good enough but because mentally they were happier being in a smaller pond (that said I don't think SWP was good enough technically, either).

But I think Shelvey is a bit different - reports suggest he's some kind of progidy, and he's young enough to take the long-term career view. And for some reason he didn't choose us...
