Mahrez low odds to join chelsea? Anyone heard anything?

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Aug 2017 10:58:14
Rumours from North Africa is that we've signed Marhrez. fingers crossed.

Agree5 1Disagree

31 Aug 2017 11:07:25
I'd take that!

31 Aug 2017 11:19:09
He's in London and staying South of the river.

31 Aug 2017 11:47:06
Antibot will have him as Lwb cover!

31 Aug 2017 11:54:49
Leicester have said they haven't spoke to Chelsea 😩.

31 Aug 2017 12:05:23
He could actually replace Hazard if he leaves to Madrid today.
And Chelsea doesn't play with winger backs, Chelsea plays with with winger midfielders.

31 Aug 2017 12:30:32
I feel like you fail to grasp the concept of a wing back if you don't believe that Chelsea use them in their system.

31 Aug 2017 12:43:27
Rowey Chelsea plays 3421 not 541.Concept is different. And yes Moses and Alonso are used as outer midfielders.

31 Aug 2017 12:58:55
Moses and Alonso are wing backs! When Azpilicueta replaces moses it's at wing back. We use wing backs!

31 Aug 2017 13:06:53
We use wing backs, role of wing back is in possession they are midfield when not in possession they are defenders.

31 Aug 2017 13:30:42
Mahrez will go Barca.

31 Aug 2017 13:36:24
not much happening on the transfer front so far today
any news on VVD, or cedric?

31 Aug 2017 13:40:30
Signing for Barcelona. He was plan B to Countinho.

31 Aug 2017 14:03:25
When it comes to tactics read books instead of reading yellow press. Even wiki is far better than yellow crap.

31 Aug 2017 16:43:41
When it comes to tactics watch the game, play the game .

31 Aug 2017 08:01:55
Hi Eds,

Do you know if we are putting a block on the Kennedy to Newcastle loan?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know about Newcastle, but his leaving on loan was contingent on reinforcements arriving.}

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Aug 2017 08:16:49
i read somewhere that he won't be leaving if Chelsea doesn't get another LWB.

31 Aug 2017 08:17:57
Thanks for the clarification Ed. Keeping him would be better than making a panic buy!

{Ed001's Note - exactly and you are not exactly blessed with a massive squad with lots of spare parts to fill in.}

31 Aug 2017 02:58:15
Looks like the only signing that'll make our fans happy that's realistic and possible now is Mahrez. Would love him here with a front 3 of Hazard Morata and Mahrez but it doesn't seem like we've made a bid nor have shown any concrete interest. He's definitely moving tomorow so we'll soon see where to.

Agree3 1Disagree

31 Aug 2017 04:11:20
I wonder if Contes going to be forced to convert one of Pedro or Willian into a wb seeing as we haven't managed to sign a single one whilst so many have switched clubs this window. I guess that's the only way I see us going in for Mahrez.

Damn it two weeks ago I was in the No Ross Barkley corner now I just hope anyone signs. Even Barkley.

31 Aug 2017 06:39:21
I think Wilian would make an excellent wing back with his work ethic. As a forward as good as he is the end result let's him down but he always gets good reviews for the shift he puts in, much of it tracking back.

31 Aug 2017 07:11:49
Mahrez talking with Barca, Algerian fa have confirmed,

{Ed001's Note - no they have not, they have just said he has been allowed to leave their training camp to complete a deal to join a club. They refused to name or confirm a name of the team he is talking to.}

31 Aug 2017 07:47:44
Willian is a jibber when it comes to tackles though.

31 Aug 2017 11:26:50
Apologises 001, read about leaving Algeria and reports about Barcelona 2 and 2 and got to 5, cheers for responses from everyone today appreciated.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate.}

31 Aug 2017 11:36:09
Just do t see why we would need Mahrez? The wing is the one position that I feel confident that we have covered (other than CB/ GK, but let me exaggerate! )

30 Aug 2017 16:45:31
ed001 any news on potential last day signing?

it seems like Ox wants Liverpool now.
but i wonder why chelsea would bid if they didn't think he wouldn't sign . surely if at all possible they would have discussed it with his agent?

{Ed001's Note - I can't answer why Chelsea bid, he has made no secret of his preference. Unless they were hoping Liverpool were not interested hence no move from them over the weekend?

Only thing that seems likely is Drinkwater.}

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Aug 2017 17:29:52
I cannot see us not signing some fullback cover as well as some support for Morata (presumably Llorente)

30 Aug 2017 17:43:16
players we should be signing - Sandro, Aurier, Sanches and Belloti. Who we're going to end up with - Rafinha, Drinkwater and Llorente. pathetic.

30 Aug 2017 18:28:53
Aurier is too much trouble hence why PSG want rid. Belotti is so far only really top quality for one season, not worth 100m euros. Sandro has been dealt with at length, Juventus screwed us around a lot and we should remember that for the future. We wanted a loan to buy with Sanches, Bayern wanted a loan with a guarantee of over 40 appearances.

30 Aug 2017 18:23:11
We pulled it out of the bag last year. Don't loose faith yet!

30 Aug 2017 18:54:41
sanches is going swansea on loan.

30 Aug 2017 20:39:17
Emanalo will get blamed again but marina is making us a laughing stock. She is hopeless. Abrahamovich out. He's lost interest.

30 Aug 2017 20:54:20
abrahamovich out u joker! if it wasnt for him . we wouldn't be where we are today . behave.

30 Aug 2017 21:21:49
Fonzy are you clinically insane abramovich out
I think that is the stupidest thing anyone has said on this site ever
Even matt martin wouldn't say such a thing.

30 Aug 2017 21:38:16
It's Fonz's only post. Surprised the eds let it through. Clearly not a chelsea supporter.

30 Aug 2017 22:39:29
The guy who still goes to every game and loads of youth games? Yeah, clearly lost interest. Try again pal.

30 Aug 2017 23:27:06
As long as we get a couple of bodies in the only disappointment for me is the players we have let go. I think RLC and Chalobah could have got a lot more game time this season, enough for them to develop and grow with us substantially whilst helping with HG quotas. Hopefully RLC becomes a Thibaut and not a Lukaku!

31 Aug 2017 00:52:46
I think Belotti is pure, natural, rugged and a quality striker (with quick feet, pace, aerial ability) He has started scoring again this season. He is imo a better goal scorer than Morata. I envy the club that will eventually sign him.
If Mbappe is worth £140mً then Belotti is a bargain for £86m.

30 Aug 2017 11:45:41
Goodmorning Eds;

Are we making a late push for Rafinha?

{Ed001's Note - I believe it is a possibility now.}

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Aug 2017 13:58:47
oh dear. Scraping the barrel now aren't we?

30 Aug 2017 15:33:20
Absolute garbage signing if it happens. We desperately desperately need at the very least a versatile player that can play either LWB or RWB but ideally 2 wingbacks for either side would be better.

I would rather play with 10 men than Rafinha, absolute clown of the lowest order. If We're not being paid to take Him of Bayerns wage bill then this Club is more incompetent than Arsenal.



30 Aug 2017 15:37:46
If that is true then it is a monumental error and waste. A 31 year old, slowcoach when we have and had young players more than capable of covering. Also Bakayoko said this morning that we are short in midfield for the campaign we have ahead so I hope there is something going on behind the scenes as most people on here have raised the subject.

30 Aug 2017 10:07:55
Chelsea have made a £25million bid for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley despite the England international being out injured until December, reports the Daily Mail.

The paper also says the Premier League champions are offering £35m for Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater and £15m for Swansea striker Fernando Llorente.

Agree0 2Disagree

30 Aug 2017 12:16:40
if kante gets injured i don't think bakayoko has the discipline yet to play along side fabregas in a 2 as he is still young, drinkwater is perfect for us, also in the big games when we want someone to sit infront of the back 3 instead of being dragged out of position looking to win the ball back like Kante does sometimes he will be invaluable. Remember how bad giacherinni was at sunderland then in the euros under conte he was different class.

30 Aug 2017 09:12:09
So Ox seemed to have turned down Chelsea for a possible move to Liverpool. Would be gutted about this but since it's due to him only wanting to play Cm and not Rwb I'm not too bothered. How he thinks he'd have a chance getting into their current midfield is beyond me. A shame though, really think Conte could've made him into a special wing back.

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Aug 2017 09:36:30
There's a good chance that Ox Chamberlain will end up at Chelsea.

30 Aug 2017 00:44:46
Ox has rejected chance to join Chelsea as doesn't want to play RWB but wants central role.

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Aug 2017 04:44:04
I wonder if this is true and if eds have any insight on this?
Hes not going to play much CM at Liverpool is he? I think Coutinho is going so I don't see where he fits in the midfield there?
He certainly will not play CM here. Is this news true eds or is there a chance that report is bs? Its being reported by a few credible sources.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I have just woken up. Only thing I know is that he has made it very clear from the start that he wanted to sign for Liverpool, so it could just be people assuming based on that. It could just as easily be true as well, but no one in the UK that would know is awake to ask right now!}

30 Aug 2017 05:53:35
If he is scared of competiting with Bakayoko, Kante, Fabregas and Drinkwater, not sure why he thinks he'll fair better with Wijnaldum, Henderson, Can to be honest. Smacks of the Arsenal mentality, demands a lot for little to no work.

30 Aug 2017 06:16:22
Liverpool have already signed a midfield player who will start next season and an approach for another rejected.
I'm not sure how his supposed positional preferences will be more likely at Anfield.
It's just another example of how difficult it is sometimes to get transfers over the line!

30 Aug 2017 06:45:38
Haha sorry Eds im from Australia ;-) THe working day is coming to an end here. Thanks for the reply.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, it is not even 7am in the UK yet, so it is difficult to get hold of anyone.}

30 Aug 2017 07:00:22
PS: In my comment above its suppose to stay I don't think Coutinho is going.

{Ed001's Note - Klopp is trying to replace him with Lemar, he wants rid now after initially intending to keep him. It will be Klopp's decision though as the club are 100% backing him and taking their lead from him.}

30 Aug 2017 07:36:02
The whole situation with Ox is strange. Wants to leave the team with the weakest central midfield in the top 6, for another top 6 team, so that he can play central midfield.

Fair play to him, he knows what he wants, and he's going for that, but I can't see it working out for him. If this mornings stories are true it's definitely one of those spilt milk situations for Chelsea though.

30 Aug 2017 09:09:21
he'd surely get a chance to rotate. with kanta baka an fabregas in the middle and possobly right wing every now an den. picking liverpool over chelsea ia dumb. he won't get in over can an henderson or man an salah out wide so surprised he picked this liverpool move if it happens. he probably wouldn't be ahead of lalana either in the pecking order 😂.

30 Aug 2017 09:17:56
'TWO SOURCES close to Ox Chamberlain say he wants to go to Liverpool', according to Skysports' KAVEH SOLHEKOL.
He hasn't come out to declare anything publicly but I guess players don't declare such things publicly.

30 Aug 2017 09:28:28
Chelsea obviously has better players compared to Arsenal, so I guess the Ox wants first team assurances- to play in a midfield position rather than wingback. I don't even see Liverpool playing him in his desired midfield position. He is wired for wingback position.

29 Aug 2017 19:59:15
To sign.


Agree1 1Disagree

29 Aug 2017 20:07:08
Way to improve the 1st team. Rubbish transfers.

29 Aug 2017 20:17:03
Thought Llorente was injured, but might be wrong.

29 Aug 2017 20:27:17
I do think that any signings made now will be an improvement. As long as the new signings put pressure for a starting posision then those players will perform better to keep there spots. We also need some depth in a few places.

29 Aug 2017 20:27:42
Looking very likely and they would all add great squad depth.

29 Aug 2017 20:29:50
Not excited one bit I'm sorry to be negative. I normally try to be positive but them transfers don't help, they're quantity instead of quality.

29 Aug 2017 20:41:44
Squad fillers. Home quota. Pleased with them if they all come off. But STILL think we have something big up our sleeves.

29 Aug 2017 21:17:18
We can never be are if they will all come off but I trust Conte to get the best out of them.
We've seen Dave and the Ox play on the left side but as it doesn't look like we are going to sign a natural left sided player I wonder if Baba might be staying for the whole season even though he won't be able to play for another three months.
From what we've seen of Baba in the prem he can't defend for toffee but I'm sure AC can work another Moses miracle!

29 Aug 2017 22:59:59
Our starting 11 last year was never an issue our depth was, now we're adding quality depth apparently that's seen as a negative. Barkley is a young talent who's Bpl proven and Drinkwater as a Bpl winner, Llorente who adds something different and Ox who's an exciting young talent who covers a lot of areas we're short in. How that's seen as a negative is beyond me.

It's not like we haven't tried to improve either with Sandro, Van Dijk and now Mahrez. Like Conte said a while ago it's a long project, you're not going to get all your targets in one window and sometimes it's out of your hands. We're not a club like PSG ot City anymore who'll offer stupid wages and money for players to join and a lot of our fans need to realise that.

29 Aug 2017 23:15:30
Ox Chamberlain would prefer move to Liverpool from Arsenal but time is running out on a move to Liverpool cos of no Liverpool bid - yet.

30 Aug 2017 09:08:39
Mate that's Sky trying to run with a nothing story. They try and get people to place money on their Sky bets by saying all kinds of crap. Don't believe for a second that he'll end up at anywhere else then chelsea. Don't buy their interest at all.
