Hi Ed’s

I am a after a bit of info. We were linked with a double deal with Roma for dzeko and Palmiere. Now it appears the dzeko deal looks dead, but since that came out there has been no talk of Palmiere. I thought he was keen and that the hold up was dzeko.
Can you throw any light on the matter.
Thanks in anticipation.


{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware that deal will go through, probably during the week. I think it is just medical and dotting i's and crossing t's.}

1.) 26 Jan 2018 21:49:53
Thanks for info much appreciated.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

2.) 27 Jan 2018 00:39:09
Ed1 any idea why it takes Chelsea a lot longer than other clubs to close out a deal? Is it case where our club tries to negotiate the lowest fee possible. Or are there other reasons.

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't. Some deals are just harder to work out details on than others. It took Liverpool about 5 months to sign van Dijk!}

3.) 27 Jan 2018 13:30:25
Yeah Ed001, thanks for the info- you are lovely.
Dzeko's agent just confirmed that the deal will go through, "He has one foot in London"

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

what's gets me why are spending 20mill odd on a left that hasn't played for various of reasons and injurys and not spending the money of the potential on Sessongon Fulhams left back who has just scored his 11th goal today.

5.) 27 Jan 2018 20:28:35
Or why not use Rahman as back up and reevaluate the situation in the summer.



20 Jan 2015 21:43:09
Well satisfied with a draw as we set up not to lose.
However I am assuming it was Moses scored the equalizer as the defence opened up straight down the middle like the Red Sea. This is not the first time this season that has happened and its a bit worrying.
By the way do you know if Niall Quinn has sent us hate mail as well as slating us all the way through the commentary. I had to turn the sound off as I found his totally anti chelsea voice irritating.
Thought we weren't great but did a job.


1.) Anfield has got its atmosphere, playing in the semi is not same as playing in the league. Although there were lot of individual mistakes. I don't know while Cahil and John Terry likes running parallel with an attackers. Cahill has got lots of defensive mistakes since December and should have blocked the shoot or what is the need for running if you can't make an attacker to lose his balance or block his shot? Sterling will still try his luck and run at our defense at Stamford bridge. As post man never ring twice, hope our DM will keep him quiet.

2.) 21 Jan 2015 09:45:54
I totally agree about the commentary - I actually thought during the game that the the commentator must be a Liverpool fan. Maybe worth a complaint to Sky.

3.) 21 Jan 2015 21:53:04
It was so incredibly biased. Everytime the was a foul against us etc, he was saying that we were cheating/diving or it was a soft decision blah blah blah. Was beyond annoying.



25 Jun 2014 19:35:56
Hi ed
Just seen lavezzi again, he is exceptional and wouldn't be expensive in the overall scheme of things, maybe 12 million. I know he is 29 but if we get 2-3 years that would be great.
Is there serious interest or just another name touted about.
Thanks in anticipation


{Ed002's Note - I have explained that there is interest.}

1.) 25 Jun 2014 22:26:58
I know lavezzi is a great player, but surely with hazard, schurrle, Willian and salah we don need a winger. I'd rather these younger players get a chance ten loseing one of them. We need to concentrate on a left back, and another central mid, and a couple of strikers.

2.) Lavezzi can also play striker, and I like his guile, in contrast to Costa warhorse style. But would hope we would also have looked at Sanchez, now linked be some newspapers to LFC and would be frightening if playing alongside Suarez (specially if Suarez taught Sanchez how to sing his teeth into defenders!)

3.) VBS, I wouldn't worry bout Sanchez lining up next to Suarez. Sanchez would only be heading to Pool as a replacement for Suarez if at all.

Hi ed

Lots of speculation about hazard and psg. It also appears he is making hints he may wish to go. My question is do you think that there may be a deal to be done with cavani coming in. If so I assume it would be straight exchange or us receiving plus cavani.
My personal view is I don't want to lose him, but it is no good keeping players who want to leave. If it does happen then make them pay.


{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what you are talking about, sorry.}

1.) I mean how strong is this story or is it just paper talk

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea what you are talking about. And "strong"?}

2.) This is the exact reason I put the question to Ed002, not one week ago. Seems like its always going to be an uphill battle on this ppage.

3.) Eds already said it was a tongue and cheek comment he made and let's be honest he wants to be one of the best as it stands he is with the best coach in the world in the best league in the world on good money on the other hand players will always come and go were a team to offer a ridiculous sum of money the club would obviously consider it football is not only a sport but a business I personally thing he will be at Chelsea a couple more season possibly more then may head off to real madrid I can't see him leaving this year unless a record bid was made.

4.) We wouldn't sell him end of.



05 Jan 2014 20:46:20
Hi ed
Can you tell me if there is any interest in someone taking luiz off our hands. I've heard of interest from barca and bayern but they apparently they won't look till summer. Just wondered if we could get rid before. Sorry to sound off hand but thought he was again very average and lazy with his passing. I hate to think what his pass completion percentage was today.


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anyone looking to make an offer for him in January.}

1.) I heard that barca were looking at him now and we're going to bid in jan?

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea are not going to bid on their own players? Are you a Liverpool fan?}

Just read that courtoise has been quoted as saying his heart is in Madrid. More paper twisting of comments. Of course his heart is in Madrid his children are there. But that does not mean he wants to leave.
However as a “ what if”. What if he does want to go who do we go for.
I think we need to go English, either Pickford or Heston. Both are poss future England keepers. I prefer Pickford he’s young and could be here for several years. The problem was loaning out courtoise to athletico. If he’d have stayed this would not be an issue.
I think he will go as Madrid will rebuild in the summer starting with the keeper.


1.) 06 Feb 2018 22:10:10
for him its personal reasons more dan wanting to leave chelsea his family are in madrid so it would be hard for him to turn them down if the oppertunity arises.

2.) 06 Feb 2018 21:54:33
What about butland?



06 Jan 2018 17:58:28
This has got defeat written all over it unless. Someone shoes some effort and picks up the pace.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 19:25:28
this is exactly why barkley is a good signing energetic. why did we even bother waisting our time starting kenedy every1 knows he's not good enough an has no future with us should of started sterling.



06 Jan 2018 17:52:31
Already first 20 minutes, Bats, Kennedy. Not good enough to play for Chelsea. Bakayoko not ready to play.
We have not created a chance. The worry is only experience on bench is Morata, nothing in midfield to get a grip.


1.) 06 Jan 2018 18:12:20
everyone has been poor . but Kenndy is at least giving it ago. trying to run at people. there is no options all. over the park.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 18:52:46
Morata for bats
Musonda for Pedro
Ampadu for Bakayoko.

3.) 06 Jan 2018 18:57:59
Why’s he not changing it we’ve been awful all game.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 19:27:13
guys people wanna keep bats still he looks hopeless sorry for negativity . should of given sterling a start full back zapacosta looked solid very poor do. barkley will be the energy we need in midfield baka drinkwater kante all similar style defensively an not great going forward barkley adds a bit of sparl we don't have.



28 Dec 2017 21:10:06
Sitting watching Palace v Arsenal match. RLC is playing, I think. This is the exact reason he won’t play for Chelsea. He’s clueless re positioning and he’s LAZY.


1.) 28 Dec 2017 21:30:41
He's also not a winger and never will be. His best games have been when he has played centrally.

2.) 29 Dec 2017 09:15:34
I prefer to have Loftus Cheek to Willian (big name that produces nothing) in my own team.

3.) 29 Dec 2017 13:26:55
I see someone say he’s not a winger, he’s a professional footballer he was ambling round doing not a lot. As for preferring him to Willian, willian in form is way out in front of RLC. RLC is still a young player he needs to work harder, I don’t know if it is mindset or he is just not fit.



09 Dec 2017 14:05:04
Best team winning don’t know how we are so poor. Movement slow and ponderous. We look totally out of sorts. No urgency. I think we can kiss this goodbye. Let’s concentrate top four and cups. Just not strong enough, losing to two out of bottom three not good.

Totally agree about Courtoise, thought clearly to blame for first goal. Also thought his positioning for for second and third were poor.
I have always thought that if you have a great keeper the team may have a poor day but the keeper keeps you in those games. I have never felt he was like that. Lately every mistake the team makes we end up conceding.
So sell him and get in for butland or the burnley keeper pope.

Well put TomB, we regularly win trophies. We have the odd blip in between but overall the last 14 years have been pretty damn good. We need to forget about blaming people. Everyone wants to slate Bakayoko but he is young and clearly is suffering a lack of confidence. Funny enough we sold three players who didn’t perform when given the chance and no doubt those moaners were moaning about those three and wanted them sold, De Bruena, Lukarku and Salah. So perhaps rush decisions don’t necessarily pay off. So how about we support him and perhaps he becomes a future legend.

Matt right on both counts, matic should have been booked for constant fouls on hazard, then should have gone for elbow on morata. Second half hazard disappeared.
We deserved at least a draw but that sums up season.

I think we would probably get £100m plus asensio for hazard. courtoise probably £40m and I prefer Pickford as an option. Ironically we only have ourselves to blame for him wanting Madrid. If we had never loaned him it never happens. But I think he’s def gone in summer. I also believe hazard will go.
We have to remember we won plenty before hazard rocked up. We also need to be a team, at the moment we are a one man team.
So if they are going let’s get top dollar and do our business early to replace them.

Having read the above post, would not say our performance was naive. I think we imposed our game on them. We conceded four goals over two games, all came from mistakes. Barcelona barely created a chance in the first game and only created chances after we were two down and chasing the game.
After the city game which was an absolutely disgaceful performance. And that was the managers tactics.
As I said at the time I would prefer to go and give it a go and try and win and lose 3-0 than not try and lose 1-0.
So let’s get the season over, sell courtoise and a couple of others. Then no doubt change of manager.
Let’s see what new season brings.

I agree not overly excited by his performance, doubt he will stay in China long past the world cup.

Not sure about that, I think we went to sleep defensively. Hazard was taken off because as happens with him in the big games he goes missing. He was good first half but disappeared second half. We still should of had draw.
But that sums up season we haven’t always got what we deserved.

Confidence breeds confidence, namely game time and belief breeds goals. Good luck Michy.

Trouble was he has poor positional sense, never challenges for the ball in the air and poor first touch.
Now whether is down to nerves when he was selected to play. Also the fact if he read the papers that the manager didn’t want him. He’s gone to Dortmund he was wanted by them and has played as first choice so his confidence is probably high.
This was the problem of spending 30m plus on back up young strikers they don’t get game time and they only gain confidence with game time.
Now the first three lines were my observation on Bats time at CFC. It’s sad as I wanted him to succeed and he’s a likeable player.
