Hey ed2 mate or ed1 if he's still on sabbatical

Is chelsea interested in Isco at all? He's a classy player and wouldimprove us so much!

{Ed001's Note - the Isco that has just signed a new long term contract and is Zidane's pet project? It really doesn't matter, so long as Zidane is there it is very unlikely they will let him go, at least right now. Zidane was the one that convinced Madrid to buy him in the first place when no one else at the club thought he was the right choice. Zidane loves him.}

Standard, asking for Isco would be asking for much, I just want Mateo Kovacic in Chelsea.

I just remember him being on the fringes not to long ago and maybe remember strong interest in him but I may be wrong. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - he was and would have been sold but for Zidane, who fought to keep him.}

Does Chelsea have a spare, 650 million pounds? I think that's his new buyout clause.

Didn't they offer a swap for Oscar? Said at the time we were mad to turn it down.

Absolutely gutted Musonda wasn't even involved for this game, i understand not wanting to take risks but not even putting him on the bench is harsh. Qarabag was maybe one of the worst teams we've played in Europe, it could've been a perfect opportunity to play him in the 2nd half and let him show what he is capable of without any pressure. Hope he starts against Forest in the cup, he deserves the chance and has waited long enough for it. Can't afford to let this lad slip away, really think he'll be a special player in a few years if given the chance.

Couldn't agree more, desperate to see him play.

It's fine saying they are the worst team. But until the game starts you can't make any assumptions.
Musonda will get a chance prob against Forest.
So let's be glad we won and let's get ready for Arsenal.

Musonda is a good young player and he will get his chance.
Its not always easy for a young player to break into the first team squad of a big team like Chelsea. Let's be patient with the coach's decision on Musonda (remember his preseason was a bit sketchy) .
I strongly believe that Musonda, Loftus Cheek (if he stays fit) and A. Christensen (if he extends his deal) will make it at Chelsea.

Agree0 0Disagree

Courtois, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill (c), Zappacosta, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso, Willian, Batshuayi, Pedro.

One player unlikely to feature is Danny Drinkwater after he picked up a muscular injury in his calf in training yesterday. Conte says Eden Hazard will be named on the bench again as his recovery continues to be carefully managed.

Gotta say I knew nothing about bako before he came (apart from the Monaco CL matches) but he was out muscling everyone today. One or two mistakes but if he can shoot anywhere near Lamps ability he will be a bargain!

If he stays free from injury- I can only imagine the impact he will make in Chelsea. He's a very good midfielder and looks the complete thing.

Very disappointed to realise CFC were one of the clubs to agree to the Transfer Window being shut three weeks before the rest of Europe. I believe this will mean English clubs paying over the odds for players who otherwise might be tempted to wait until the rest of Europe closes. What do you guys think about this?

I love Conte's response as regards this issue.
I also like it when our transfer businesses are concluded on time (on or before the club's preseason tour) .

Great idea, I'd only be worried being a selling club. Forces club to identify targets and act quicker,

Good afternoon Eds; I guess your day is fine?
Any need to get our hopes up about Atakan Akkaynak?
Thanks for your response.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry, but it is a bit early to know, January is a long way away and lots changes before the window opens.}

Ed any chance we go after Emre Can? Quality player who would improve our squad.

{Ed001's Note - I expect him to agree a deal to join Juventus once his contract runs down mate. That would be before Chelsea could agree a move on a free.}

Believable0 3Unbelievable

06 Sep 2017 07:27:34
Cheers mate, last year of his contract right and can't negotiate with English teams in last 6 months but can with overseas teams if I remember correctly what ed2 said!

Big pick up from Juve if it happens.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate. Juve tried to buy him this summer but Liverpool were asking for too much so no deal was agreed.}

Agree0 3Disagree

06 Sep 2017 11:12:55
Average player not actually good at anything that stands out.

{Ed001's Note - you've really not watched him play this season then. I will take Juve's judgement over yours, they were willing to offer him guaranteed first team football.}

Agree3 1Disagree

06 Sep 2017 12:00:05
Woow! LocoBakayoko if you are talking about Emre Can, I disagree with you. He a very very very very good midfielder and the good thing about him is that he can still improve. It will be a big loss to Liverpool if he left them.

Agree1 4Disagree

06 Sep 2017 14:23:40
Can would run chelseas midfield, in the centre you don't have a Better player, I'm wounded he's probably leaving the lads going to be a steal for someone.

Agree1 5Disagree

06 Sep 2017 15:22:39
Certainly wouldn't run our midfield. Very good on his day but not consistent enough and certainly has spells in a season where he seems to go missing.

{Ed001's Note - he is still young mate. The only spell he went missing last season was when he was playing through injury as Liverpool were short in midfield.}

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Sep 2017 15:57:17
Better than Kante is he John Barnes LOL! Never impressed me.

Agree4 0Disagree

06 Sep 2017 18:25:58
Can is an excellent player and I'd love him at Chelsea. He's a very complete player, contributing in both attack and defense. I really wish we could get him on the cheap in January or on a free next summer, but Juve has great allure as well so it seems most probably he'll end up there.
Pool will be losing a very good player.

Agree0 3Disagree

06 Sep 2017 18:49:43
Football is all about opinions and sorry but he's never impressed me what is his actual best position. He doesn't have one standout attribute? He's just decent at everything I wmdefknately wouldn't call him complete. I'm not saying he's a bad player but he's nowhere near Kante or even Bakayoko for me.

Agree2 0Disagree

06 Sep 2017 22:16:45
Still young ed, yes I'll give you that but defensively he's nowhere near Kante or Bakayoko, can't pick a pass like fabregas and can't grab a game by the scruff of the neck and change it like Eden hazard can. He'd be a quality squad player at Chelsea but don't think he'd even get in our first team.

Well, thank god that's all over!

I think we got what we needed in the end. Drinkwater is a proven premier league player, we all saw how he performed with Kante. should fit in well and he's English. Zappacosta, I haven't really seen him play other than for Italy. Could turn out to be a shrewd but of business and adds competition for Moses.

Im happy Barkley, Mahrez and Ox didn't sign, it means Musonda has a chance to fulfill his potential with us, instead of another loan. I'd be interested in seeing what Baba will be like once Conte has had time to work with him.

The Ox and Barkley are not right in the head. Immature and they think they are better than what they are are. I hope we stay away from Barkeley.

Agree3 3Disagree

02 Sep 2017 09:37:10
I understand what they were thinking with World Cup coming up. And glad ox isn't near our team his just a kick and run merchant, Barkley on other hand under conte with drinkwater cesc bakyoko and Kante would learn so much to his game, postionally and technically and has he physical attributes already, big mistake by him. Would of played a lot in my opinion,

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Sep 2017 10:34:15
Totally agree that Barkley could be come a good player for us, but he wouldn't have played a lot for us before January.

Waiting till January, or even summer 2018, makes the most sense for him (and his wallet) . It also allows us, or maybe Spurs, to properly assess the injury he's been out with. I think it was a mutual decision from all involved, except Everton, to wait.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Sep 2017 17:04:54
We wait til January which is be happy to do so now the faces are out spurs will come in and imo be his first choice,

Agree0 1Disagree

03 Sep 2017 13:26:56
To be honest I think with both Barkley and the Ox the alarm bells are ringing already - possibly less so with Barkley to be fair - but I think it shows a distinct lack of ambition on their part and a degree of fear. Fear that they wouldn't be able to compete with our current squad and a lack of hunger to test themselves. Ultimately I think at this level that strength of character is what gets you over the line even more so than technical skill - we want hungry competitors who will get their head down and fight for the club a la Marcus Alonso and Dave. Not primadonnas that only care about what position they get to play in.

Agree0 1Disagree

03 Sep 2017 15:39:52
As mentioned before the Barkley situation has all the hallmarks of a Levy intervention. We know Barkley wants to go to Spurs, so we offer a good price now and Eveton willingly accept, as a - out of contract next year and b- the club and most supporters want to get rid. Levy is hoping no one bids for Him in the summer because he is injured and Spurs know they can get him for a lot less in the January window. But because we bid Levy has to make contact to Barkley or his agent to say Spurs want him and will buy him in January. Barkley then pulls out of the deal to sign for Chelsea, making out he doesn't want to sign for anyone while injured.

Agree1 0Disagree

01 Sep 2017 09:54:59
Barkley Most likely rejected the move in fear of being a bench player a year before a world cup. Let's be honest here, as frustrating as a window it's been it really was no suprise that Barkley and Ox rejected the move here. I'm suprised Barkley left it soo late but didn't expect him to join nether the less.

Ox wasn't joining as he doesn't want a Rwb role, he wasn't exactly getting into our midfield was he. Don't know what happened with Llorente as it didn't seem we tried to match anything. We got cover with rwb/ lwb and Cm with Drinkwater (hopefully) and Zappacosta which was needed the most.

Our starting 11 won us the league last year so why change it soo quickly? We needed depth and we got some with the two players. Obviously a couple of injuries and it's fair to say we'll be in trouble, especially at ST. My only issue is why it was left soo late to do anything.

Why didn't we know Ox wouldn't join us if he was going to play him at Rwb ages ago? Why did we never end up bidding for Llorente? No doubt it seems our boars lacks a sense of urgency to get deals done and it has cost us to some degree but we have a starting 11 that can match any team in the Bpl and there's always the January window if things go south.

LondonBlues90, U are right about the their fear of sitting on the bench at Chelsea. We don't need to sweat their loss cos they aren't good enough for Chelsea's first team. Ox Chamberlain is a Jack of all trade and master of none while Barkley can't displace any of our Chelsea midfielders.

May be they also need to play too (so that they can make the World cup squad) might have influenced their decision.
I like the players we bought, i think they will do very well.
