Any news on Odoi regarding contract signature?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

22 Mar 2019 09:32:40
I would imagine that he will wait until the summer to decide whether to sign or not depending on Hazard / Pedro / Manager departures and any new signings (for example, if we were to sign Pepe I think CHO would leave) .

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 10:50:08
Pepe has been linked with Bayern rather than us recently.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 23:49:47
Well if he his worried about his development at Chelsea, then getting into the England team at such a young age proves his club might be doing the right thing.

Ed002, were Chelsea looking to sign a right-back in the summer before the transfer ban?

{Ed002's Note - No, not since Florenzi. The plan was to replace Zappacosta with Ola Aina but I expect both to leave, so Reece James may provide cover.}

Thanks again for your continued replies ed, really excited by the possible prospect of Reece James getting some game time.

{Ed002's Note - He would be cover - to replace Zappacosta.)

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 05:08:07
So, going by what Ed002 and the media have said, I think we were/ are looking to sign 1 CF, 1 winger to replace Hazard, 2 midfielders and 1 CB.

Ed002, amongst our older players (Higuain, Giroud, Willian, Pedro, Luiz, Cahill, Caballero, Green), do you think any of them are going to be receiving contract extensions?

{Ed002's Note - Higuain is on a loan and it depends on other matters; There is interest in Giroud and he may well opt to leave; Caballero and Green will be offered new contracts; Willian and Luiz will stay; Cahill will leave and Pedro is expected to leave.}

Well hopefully he could force his way in. I love him to bits but Dave has definitely had his worst season with us this year to my mind.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 09:46:56
Thanks a ton, Ed002.

It feels truly great to have you back!
Have a great day ahead!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 10:22:28
Ahh it’s so refreshing to have Ed002 back. Some great info there are. Thanks.

Thanks a lot dor info ed, what about odoi? If he doesn't sign contract in the summer, will chelsea look to sell or keep him and try to convince him again in january?

Also what is his issue for not signing?

{Ed002's Note - His issue is he wants to be a first pick for every game whereas he is just a child and is still learning the game. If he keeps whining like a little bitch and refuses to sign a contract Chelsea will sell him, but they would rather not.}

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 13:15:16
Surprised to see Pedro likely to leave and Willian likely to stay. Honestly think that the way Pedro's been playing compared to Willian the last three seasons would suggest that Pedro is the better option. At least that's my opinion. It's got to be recognised however, that so many managers seem to rate Willian very highly!

Sorry if you'd consider this an unrelated question, but if Hazard were to leave, would that change the fact that Pedro is considered likely to leave? :)

{Ed002's Note - I cannot comment on your view but Hazard leaving has no impact on Pedro staying or going. The club has a replacement and that is where they are.}

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 15:14:57
Thanks Ed002; your info does make a lot of sense although, I am guessing that your info could change if eventually the club gets the permission to register new players in the summer?

{Ed002's Note - This is based on the assumption the summer will be as normal.}

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 21:27:54
Thumbs up Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 00:19:30
Keen for Hudson-Odoi to prove you wrong Ed002 mate. Hudson-Odoi is a quality player and although he shouldn’t strt every game that isn’t what he’s looking for. If he continues getting the game time he’s been getting recently he’ll stay. He just doesn’t want to be shelved for more experienced players who can do nothing for two months yet still get picked.

He’s a quality player ed.

{Ed002's Note - You have no idea what I think of him.}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 06:48:30
Of course I don’t. I was referring to our previous comments on Him being a child and not ready. I hope he proves you wrong in that regard.

What is your opinion on him?

{Ed002's Note - He is a child and has school exams to do. He is learning the game which sadly none of you can see. Hopefully he will be sold and you can all get your wish for someone else to come in.}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 09:44:48
Callum Hudson-Odoi will tonight become one of the youngest England players ever. He has taken some part in 19 first team competitive matches this season. He was only 18 in November, 4 months ago. He will start a lot more games next season. He is still only 'potential' (Walcott played for England at 17 and everyone was raving about him being the next superstar! ) . Whoever is advising him needs a kick upside their head.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 11:07:40
Like I said ed I think you misunderstand us regarding Hudson-Odoi.

{Ed002's Note - No I don't.}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 11:21:01
Hey Ed, the player to replace Pedro you mentioned is that Pulisic?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 11:53:04
Hll I thought Pulisic was a replacement for Willian. Didn't expect Pedro to leave this summer to be honest.

Can't wait for Pulisic though! Seems like a guy with a great attitude.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 15:06:01
If Hudson Odoi signs a new deal ( guessing- with some level of guarantee), I see no reason why Chelsea will want to sell him; I don't think any wise club would want to sell a player with immense potential at that age (esp when he's already beginning to live up to expectation) . Besides there are not many young players (at his age) that's better than him out there. If he gets the game time that some of his mates out there gets, I think he could be one of the best. For instance, Sancho isn't miles ahead of him.
Let's pray Hudson continues learning 'and playing' and sign an extension cos I don't want him to go.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 13:15:42
I'm guessing that if Hazard stays, Willian might go (if a good offer comes in) . Although, I have to confess Ed002, I wouldn't be surprised if I learnt that you actively work at Chelsea football club (cos your responses are so much like you've really got something vested at the club or you are actively part of the club) . Please, I mean no offence.

{Ed002's Note - I don’t work for the club but their intention is to keep Willian and it is unrelated to Hazard.}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 13:27:46
Excellent, thanks Ed!

If Hazard does leave would the club look to sign a replacement player in the same position? Or would they they look to Willian, Pulisic and Hudson-Odoi?

{Ed002's Note - The club would like to use Hudson-Odoi but with a bit of luck he will be sold to shut everyone up here.}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 18:10:50
Thankyou Ed; a lot is clearer now. Please we want Hudson Odoi to stay.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 18:26:07
Ed002; my emphasis is on your phrase- 'with a bit of luck'. What would that mean? Could it mean that Chelsea is looking to sell Hudson Odoi to a club that isn't Bayern Munich (with a buyback clause)? I am just trying to analyse your statement.

{Ed002's Note - You need to get rid of these odd diorama running around in your head.}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 18:44:27
Hahahaha.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Mar 2019 18:44:41
Good night.

22 Mar 2019 19:34:16
Would the club look to invest the Hazard money in a player in a different position (not asking for names or even position)? I feel like in most of our advertisements he is one of the main players involved in that. Is marketability something the club consider? Sorry if this is not something you want to answer, just curious what sort of thought go into signings. For instance, would the club look to replace Hazard’s marketability (If that’s the right term), if he were to leave with a similar profile player?

Apologies for the boring questions!

Agree0 0Disagree

A few reports in the British press this morning that Jim Ratcliffe is talking to Roman Abramovich again about purchasing the club.

Ratcliffe has recently, through his company, agreed the purchase of cycling outfit Team Sky. I thought the new rumours linking him to Chelsea were just re-hashed old stories brought up again because he is in the press about Team Sky.

Ed002 could you possibly provide a couple players chelsea would be interested in if the transfer ban is upheld? No worries if you’re still on hiatus! Cheers.

{Ed002's Note - I would offer up Antoine Semenyo and Nicolo Zaniolo.}

Believable2 0Unbelievable

19 Mar 2019 04:15:55
Both youngsters, thank you mate.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Mar 2019 15:04:28
Ed002, is there any chance Semenyo was being thought of as a player for the first team?
Or was the plan to send him on loan?

{Ed002's Note - He would have gone in to the youth or reserve side and tehn a loan.}

Agree0 0Disagree

Like most I assumed that Zidane returning to Madrid was a certain catalyst for Hazard definitely going to Madrid in the summer.

There's an assumption that Zidane would have returned on the condition of Madrid signing Hazard, amongst over. But maybe Zidane returned despite Madrid offering no guarantee of following up their interest in Hazard.

If I'm honest, I can't see Madrid weighing out the sort of money we want for Hazard. Not when he turns 29 in the next twelve months. It is not how they have characteristically operated.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

16 Mar 2019 17:35:14
I guess I’m like a few fans J, bored with the whole Hazard saga!

Agree5 0Disagree

17 Mar 2019 04:53:44
He'll go. We can't ask for much given the circumstances and after everything he's done for the club, we should just let him leave. Hopefully if our ban isn't frozen and he still leaves the fans don't think any less of him. He shouldn't feel forced to stay because of the clubs mistakes.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Mar 2019 08:13:15
The thing that is overlooked is that Hazard's family (wife Natacha and 3 sons) are settled and happy in the UK. The oldest boy is 9 this year and has grown up in England and has a friendship group established in London. The second boy has just started school. Hazard may well leave for Madrid but the decision will be based on family rather than Hazard's childhood adoration of Zidane.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Mar 2019 09:34:57
Is Ed02's return to the Chelsea page when we enter a transfer ban the ultimate act of irony? It's too well timed not to be.

If so, I have nothing but respect.

{Ed002's Note - It is no problem for me not to bother if it is all about to start again.}

Believable1 0Unbelievable

16 Mar 2019 12:19:21
Don’t think he meant any harm Ed002! Nath has usually been a respectable poster!

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Mar 2019 13:35:23
Sorry Ed, it was a well intentioned joke nothing more.

Agree0 0Disagree

14 Mar 2019 08:32:03
Eds, if our transfer ban remains, can we buy players and loan them out until our ban is over?

{Ed002's Note - No, Chelsea cannot register any new players that are not already notified on the FIFA TMS.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

15 Mar 2019 11:53:03
Could we do what (If I remember correctly) Athleti did with costa and buy someone but not register them and just have them train with the club then? Just our of interest. Also is the registering that we cannot do different from the registering for competitions then? Sorry for the stupid question Ed, just curious.

{Ed002's Note - The "registering" is notification of the transfer to FIFA via the TMS. Chelsea, if banned, cannot register new players for the duration of the ban - it is really, really simple to understand and I am surprised folks are struggling to understand this.}

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Mar 2019 16:18:10
Ok, thanks Ed. Was just curious if we had any sort of workarounds that we could be following to be honest. Was hoping it wasn’t as simple as it sounded haha.
Cheers for clarifying.

{Ed002's Note - It is not complicated. Things may well change before the summer is out though.}

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Mar 2019 21:08:18
The club is hoping to be able to appeal to CAS to delay the ban?

{Ed002's Note - What?}

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Mar 2019 09:27:25
Court of Arbitration for Sport - CAS.

{Ed002's Note - I think it best you all just ignore this matter for now.}

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 17:23:50
ed002 is it true were interested in pepe, jovic and Maxi Gomez thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get in to your giant lists of random players.}

Believable1 0Unbelievable

12 Mar 2019 18:28:51
sorry ed can i ask about one player then, if were interested at all in pepe.

{Ed002's Note - No, Pepe will be moving elsewhere.}

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 22:17:12
Hopefully Bayern then. So Callum sees sense and signs an extension here lol.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 22:46:33
Which Pepe is that though Ed? 😏.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Mar 2019 06:38:17
In the nearest future, I get the feeling that we will wish we signed Pepe. Unless the club is interested in someone better.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 08:30:22
Hazard's idol, Zidane is back at Madrid. Eds please can you tell us if Hazard will get his request to move to Madrid next summer.
Please who do Chelsea look at for the replacement? Cheers!

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with his childhood idol, but nothing has changed and he is one of the players they are keen on.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

12 Mar 2019 15:24:04
Does it even matter who we’re looking at as a replacement given we can’t sign anyone till summer 2020 at this rate? The biggest signing we could make this season would be keeping hold of him but that’s only going to be remotely possible if we secure champions league football.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Mar 2019 23:47:07
Zidane back at Madrid! I wonder if he's asked them to sign Hazard yet. Enjoy watching him play for us for the rest of this season people.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

12 Mar 2019 02:58:47
Yep he’s gone.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 07:26:37
And yet Chelsea will remain.

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 11:52:35
Maybe it would help us to become a team that doesn't have to constantly rely on one player.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Mar 2019 18:34:52
BruCeFC we coped in the past and we will cope in the future. It may make others step up to the mark instead of standing in the back ground. I think he will go. So we will find out next season.
