Couple of thoughts on ins/ outs managers etc. Regarding manager I would be happy with sarri. I think abramovich has long wanted us to play exciting football and that's certainly what Napoli have done last season. Half of our problem has been the quick success under Jose by playing with big physical players that just basically bullied whoever we come up against. Since winning the champions league we have still had that mindset but the players we have been bringing in have not been of that type (physical) . We have bought in players who are better on the ball but we never adapted as a club/ team to play that pressing quick football even though the players have played this way at previous clubs. I'm not sure if I'm getting my point across as well in words as I'd like but I'm sure you get the idea.
Now to ins and possible outs:
For the football possibly under sarri I'd like Alex telles or Alex Sandro to replace alonso. Christensen and rudiger I'd be happy with at centre back with azipilicueta at right back. Midfield of Kante, David Luiz and loftus cheek. Would to see milinkivic Savic from lazio in there for Luiz but can't see it happening. Front three of hazard, bailey and icardi would be the dream.
Long post but haven't posted for a while so appreciate the feedback and other options.

we just paid 30 odd million for emerson who looked really decent when played left back isn't a position we need to waist money on. evrey man amd his dog can see we need an out an out winger a partner for kante in midfield maybe a more attacking midfielder an a tlisman up front. don't under stand all this nonsense of bringing in left backs an centre halfs when they aren't pur weakest positions.

19 Jun 2018 06:42:34
Emerson palmeiri is our best left back.

19 Jun 2018 12:34:09
Why are none of you putting forward the idea that Luiz could partner Kante in midfield - save us a bucket-ooad of transfer budget.

19 Jun 2018 20:00:39
I’d lobe to see Luiz back in midfield with Ruben and Kante. I would like Milinkovic-Savic but he looks Juve bound.

19 Jun 2018 21:36:34
Luiz is not a midfielder, other than a short period for us and a couple of other single games or subs appearances filling in for injuries etc, he has always been a centre half. When he is driven and happy he has proven to be a very good centre half, one of the best in the league.

A club of our standard should not be looking to fit square shapes into circle holes. Playing Luiz in midfield is doing just that.

21 Jun 2018 09:57:05
Emerson is awful don’t try and say he’s good just because we paid 30 million and he had one decent game.

18 Jun 2018 10:43:12
What do we think Ed's, manager announcement in next 48hrs.

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea on timings mate.}

No worries, was clutching at straws asking anyway. But the idea of Zola being director of football or assist, what would ya thoughts be on that. assistant, yeah, knows the league and club legend and can relate to players. DOF . not sure about that at all, what experience has he got that role? If there’s any truth that is.

{Ed001's Note - as assistant manager I think he would be excellent. He is a very good foil between the manager and players. He is very well liked, trusted and has experience of both roles to help him act as a go between. He is also a very good coach.

As a DoF? There I would have my doubts. It is a totally different role and I think the same things that make him struggle as a manager would hold him back there.}

18 Jun 2018 19:32:06
Are there any names discussed for the DoF position, Ed? It seems to have died down recently, with the only named banded about being Zola and Ballack.

{Ed001's Note - I actually thought it was going to be Ballack. That was my understanding.}

18 Jun 2018 19:32:10
Agree mate, any truth in those Zola rumours, was reported he has been allowed to leave media duties and return to England Wednesday.

{Ed001's Note - I do know that the story has supposedly come from friends at BeIn Sports that he told he was needing to drop out of some work for them as he was talking over a role at Chelsea. Difficult to track that back from here though to find out if it is true. Qatar (where BeIn is based) are not exactly on good terms with the UAE, so it can be difficult to trace anything back.}

Hey Eds, I read about the charity match for the nurses. sounds like it was a lot of fun. Well done to the winners and awesome support that you guys received. Im in a different country, but if i was there i would have played or donated. Stay blessed brothers.

18 Jun 2018 09:30:54
Can't remember last time there was this much excitement for England in a tournament, dunno if it's as no teams have looked great or what but I'm buzzing. Think a 3-0 with sterling and kane getting the goals, kane 2.

matt and others.
england will be the next world champions.

18 Jun 2018 18:21:35
I think semi’s and the pressure will be our down fall. Kane and sterling will be the stars for us, good young team. Attacking wise good, maybe lack of experience Southgate ( who I wasn’t keen on ) so far done superb job and kept everyone grounded and always says right thing will help.

19 Jun 2018 00:24:12
semis😂😂 based on tonights performance ye have a lot of work to do and southgate needs to learn how to change a game every time henderson wa sin possesion ali lingard sterling all ran away up in a line with kane instead of coming to henderson really poor performance . thoughy loftus cheek gave a good acount of himself and i felt sorry for walker he's clearly better dan trippier in my books he should be yer wing back . id probably play cahil for experience over stones aswell.

19 Jun 2018 12:39:40
Yeah opinions have changed a little after that, was loads of excitement and second half disappointed, lol thought it was strange he waited so long to take Alli off who was struggling from 20 min. And he was going to bring delph on but changed his mind luckily? Think I’ll take it one game st a time now lol.

• Chelsea will buy Maurizio Sarri out of his contract for €5m.

• Sarri has been told the deal should be resolved on Tuesday.

• Agreement not to activate clauses for Zielinski, Hysaj or Albiol.

(Sportitalia, Corriere del Mezzogiorno and others)

The Telegraph, The Guardian and The Independent all reporting similar and that they expect deal to be concluded next week.

Sorry, not CFC related, but could someone please explain the basics of when a player retreats from an offside position, when does he then become onside? I'm thining about Ronaldo's 2nd goal when he was half a mile offside but came back 'on' to continue the move and score.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Jun 2018 06:36:11
Once back in an onside position you can become legally active for another phase of play, such as another pass or cross. I think that's basically it.

17 Jun 2018 11:21:25
I think once in an onside position (from an offside position), u have to stay some seconds again before you can become legal again to get the ball. I am not sure but I think its between 3-5 seconds.

17 Jun 2018 12:46:42
Thanks to you both.

18 Jun 2018 00:35:52
If someone thinks that I am wrong, please correct me.

I’m Danish and very much consider going. Haven’t seen any tickets on sale though - Where do you find them?

16 Jun 2018 15:35:00
60 euros for a friendly bit steep
I would of gone only live an HR away
But can't justify that.

16 Jun 2018 22:58:38
hi EmilSC they are on ticketmaster. ie if you are looking for them not sure how many are left do. if your travelling to ireland from denmark dublin is expensive to stay in.

16 Jun 2018 22:40:11
i paid 200 for 2 tickets well my wife did😂 but i agree loco its a bit steep but sure how often do u get too see d boys in action in ireland so i think id have paid the money either way. last pl game i went too was 150 for 2 tickets in euro.

15 Jun 2018 19:36:13
That goal, which he created out of nowhere, can only make you miss Diego. What a player he is, and despite the many bad things, one simply cannot hate him as Chelsea fan IMO.
We could really use that powerful, goalscoring presence up front.

only drogba is better than him great player missed him this year.

16 Jun 2018 11:30:54
Diego won us so many points in tight matches - when on song, combined skill with all round strength to extent that he could be unstoppable.

16 Jun 2018 15:33:04
Diego, Diego, Diego. im 29 in july and i think i had a man crush on Diego during the title winning season under conte first year.
