Hey Ed001,

Apologies if this has already been answered elsewhere but would You know if Chelsea will be in for a Striker in January. I appreciate Jan is a particularly difficult time to aquire talent but I think We will be playing with the handbrake on if We don't bring someone in.

Looking forward to Your reply Mate and Thanks in advance


{Ed001's Note - Sarri would certainly like to bring someone in, he is not happy with either option available to him and is not willing to place his faith in a youngster.}

Not even Tammy?
I somehow think that Tammy is our best striker.
And this is coming from someone who is not even as pro-youth as most other Chelsea fans.

{Ed001's Note - he is out on loan and Sarri is not happy with either Giroud or Morata as options, so needs to bring in replacements for them. Abraham's best hope is as the 3rd choice for next season.}

03 Dec 2018 04:49:59
Giroud is very limited and morata can’t score in an empty net. A striker is the absolute priority.

Though Abraham’s having a good season from what’s i at, he’s not an improvement on MORATa or giroud.

I feel like we missed a trick not signing Aubemeyang.

03 Dec 2018 16:21:09
Completely agree we missed out by not signing Aubameyang, something I and others) had written hoping would happen quite a long time before his move to AFC when Costa on way out. He was then apparently offered to us, and we didn't take him. He seemed so obviously what we needed, hugely better proven track record of scoring than Morata. Of course there were rumours of Aubameyang having a 'difficult personality' but many confident strikers do - eg Costa - have something of an attitude. It's often part of ego/ self-belief required in the job. The problem with Morata is that he doesn't seem to have enough of this, nor quite the physical strength needed for EPL, though he has displayed plenty of skill at times, and it all looked very promising to begin with.

Thank for the reply Ed001, much appreciated.

Would You know if the Club are on board with Sarri's desire to bring another forward in and if so would this likely mean one going out in some capacity?

Also would You know of any potential targets. I've read rumours linking Us with Immobile but can't see Us concluding that if true and definately not in Jan.

Thanks again for the reply and I look forward to hearing any more info You might have lol.


{Ed001's Note - I don't have the contacts within the club Ed002 has, so I have no idea for sure what the club are thinking. I do know there has been a number of forwards scouted, according to people who should know. The problem is that this is due to scouts being at games and there is no guarantee that they are scouting the player it is believed they are scouting. Or that they actually recommend the player looked at. Lazio have been watched and the assumption is it is him. Icardi seems to be under the impression he is a target as well. So it can only be inferred from those two beliefs that the club are targeting a striker. However it is not concrete I am afraid.}

03 Dec 2018 18:57:05
By Lazio, you mean Immobile, Ed?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, sorry, I should have made that clearer.}

03 Dec 2018 23:04:28
Maybe we should go back in for Crouch as a big man? We were linked last year, might be another option.

04 Dec 2018 00:19:39
Thanks again Ed001. Top Man.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

02 Dec 2018 17:44:24
Might be an unpopular opinion as I also would love to see us rotate our youth but I just can't see it happening.

On the basis that Derby get promoted I'd like to loan our top talented youth to then if they would like. Players such as Ampadu CHO Abraham Reece Hames and Mount again as I know Frank would love then as he rates them highly and I think he'd regularly use them to improve his team in the prem.

Obviously not all of them will go to the same team and not all will nail starting positions but it's just a thought as it would get the good regular premier league experience under a good manager.

Agree2 0Disagree

03 Dec 2018 04:51:32
I agree with loaning out the other players you mentioned but we shouldn’t loan out Ampadu or Hudson-Odoi. Both of them need to Be intergrated.

02 Dec 2018 17:43:57
My ins and outs for next season:
New backup GK
Koulibaly (unlikely)
Icardi (again unlikely now)
Pulisic/ Bailey
Kovacic (he’s been good so far but if we secure Isco or another Cm then I’d opt to not sign him)
Chilwell (might be one for the future and good currently)

Luiz (liability)
RLC (only if he wants)

I’d also like to see ya rotate Hudson Odoi and Ampadu along with mount and Reece James.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Dec 2018 19:21:33
Good shout those 4 you’ve mentioned with the right mentality and tutoring could save us a fair few quid in the transfer market.

02 Dec 2018 20:20:58
CFC boy what about jay da Silva I believe he has the potential to play for us in the future.

04 Dec 2018 13:56:09
CFC Boy, you are 100% right to state D. Luiz- a liability, indeed he is. Please I plead with Sarri not offer him a new deal, let him go. There's a season in Fabregas but not D. Luiz. The coach and club should borrow a leaf from Mancity and bring in and build with top young players.
L. Cheek should stay and continue with the club.

01 Dec 2018 23:43:42
Just want to say hope anyone going tomorrow gives Andre Schurrle and Claudio Ranieri a good reception. Former is a genuine Chelsea fan and deserved better treatment here and latter is one of the best blokes in football- had the pleasure of talking to him after Leicester's title win and could not believe how humble he was.

Agree5 0Disagree

Only Europa league but heres my points:

• Giroud brings loads to this team he should start.
• Emerson has pace can overlap and get back, should also start.
• Loftus-Cheek is a tank. He deserves a run over Barkley and Kovacic.
• Hudson-Odoi has end product. Brilliant on the right too so why not chuck him in. His pressing impressed me too.

Agree2 0Disagree

30 Nov 2018 05:09:39
Good points KingKante, I am very much in support of your points although Kovacic and Barkley too are v. good and important players. Man! This Hudson Odoi is something, truly he can do a job in the first team, his got the energy level to press for 120mins. Please whatever the case is- with this kid (Hudson Odoi) and his contract should be sorted out, the boy has got a lot in his bag.

30 Nov 2018 07:51:12
Lol obinna didn’t you say Hudson-Odoi should not see the field until he signs a new contract like 2 weeks ago? But of a backflip there mate .

30 Nov 2018 08:37:17
Standard, I guess if you use the search engine you will see my comments on Hudson Odoi (besides are you stalking me? ) I don't remember saying that but even if I did, I don't owe you any explanation man.

30 Nov 2018 10:34:01
I have to disagree about RLC - I thought last night showed exactly why RLC should NOT be playing and why he will probably never be good enough for Chels; against a weak team reduced to 10 players, RLC should have dominated that game - instead, I only remember his 1 surging run in the 2nd half - apart from that he was anonymous.

But I do agree about CHO - even if he starts but only plays for an hour per game, surely he will be at least as productive as Willian and Pedro - if he's good enough, he's old enough. If CHO is another who leaves because of lack of game time, I will never forgive Sarri. Ps and DO NOT send him out on loan - PLAY CHO!

30 Nov 2018 11:32:53
I do apologise obinna, someone made that comment and I thought it was you. Sorry mate.

30 Nov 2018 16:02:22
I'm really sorry Standard, I overreacted, truly sorry.

30 Nov 2018 18:12:58
I think people are forgetting we were playing a poor time and most of game 10 men. So you cannot judge on this. I don’t disagree on Gironde. I like Emerson but defensively he is poor. Odious is good bu
T if we just throw him in it could destroy him. As for long running RLC debate he’s good going forward but poor in defence. He just not work hard enough.
I can’t believe nobody has made a big thing of how poor Willian was again. He should not be starting ahead of pedro.

01 Dec 2018 11:23:58
Willian and D. Luiz are good players but letting them leave in the summer; and bringing in capable replacements seems a no brainer.

29 Nov 2018 11:08:10
Linked to Isco today, . I mean. that's a dream move, Isco in a midfield to add that spark, completely out of our pride range because if any truth. city would be all over him.

Agree2 0Disagree

29 Nov 2018 21:55:23
It would have been perfect. If only!

30 Nov 2018 10:36:19
I'm not so sure - a great talent but I'd be concerned about the rumours of how disliked he is by the other Madrid players because of his big-headedness.

25 Nov 2018 12:40:31
We need a more attack minded midfielder like a de Bruyne or an eriksen.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Nov 2018 11:46:34
de Bruyne? Didn't we used to have a player just like him? lol. Mason Mount hopefully will fit the bill.

24 Nov 2018 14:15:16
Ed any truth in rumours we want skriinar.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know of any truth in it, but Inter might well have to sell him to raise funds to invest in the squad.}

Agree0 0Disagree

24 nov 2018 13:01:40
Top clubs want callum hudson-odoi, even big clubs.

i really don't understand what Chelsea is trying to do with this 18 year old, homegrown, talented and world class prospect.

Agree2 0Disagree

24 Nov 2018 13:00:00
For next season, unrealistic yet still realistic if you know what I mean.

Pulisic/ Bailey
New backup GK
Kovacic permanently

RLC (if he wants)

Get hazard on a new contract and it’ll be a great season.

Agree1 0Disagree
