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

KTBFFH!

Blue_Nose

{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.}


1.) 03 Dec 2018 04:04:46
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.}


2.) 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.


3.) 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.


4.) 03 Dec 2018 16:38:40
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.

KTBFFH!

{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.}


5.) 03 Dec 2018 18:57:05
By Lazio, you mean Immobile, Ed?

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


6.) 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.


7.) 04 Dec 2018 00:19:39
Thanks again Ed001. Top Man.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

Hey Ed001,

Do You know if any of the media speculation concerning Jorginho really wanting Man City has any truth to it.

I can't see a situation where a player is forced into joining a side He doesn't wish to so it all sounds like saving face from Man City to Me.

If however there is any truth to this, could We see an embarressing Mikel Obi situation from when it appeared Man. Utd had secured His services only for Him to wind up at Chelsea?

Thanks in advance.

Blue_Nose

{Ed001's Note - he does favour a move to City, but it is not a case of being forced to go elsewhere. He loves working with Sarri.}


1.) 14 Jul 2018 13:51:05
Cheers Ed001,

Thank for the clarification Mate.

Appreciated.

{Ed001's Note - to be honest, I don't know if he would have favoured Citeh had Sarri been in place initially. When he was instructing his reps about the move he wanted, Sarri was still Napoli manager.}


 

 

31 May 2018 13:49:07
I don't know how legitimate any of this really is and if I had read this from another Member I would have serious doubts about it's validity, so please take with a liberal pinch of salt.

I have been told by someone who works in the sports law field that Roman is looking for either investment or a buyer for Chelsea but dosn't want to leave the Club to just anyone / consortium.

There has been varying degrees of interest but only one has been deemed in the best interests of the Club and that is supposedly from Chinese Billionaire Jack Ma.

If any posters in the know or the Ed's can shed any light on this either way I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

KTBFFH!

Jack my is founder of Alibaba (those of u who run a business on Amazon will know ) and worth 42 billion dollars.


2.) 31 May 2018 14:24:21
i can see this happening.


3.) 31 May 2018 15:03:35

be great if him an roman had a stake each we could finally challenge again transfer wise.


 

 

29 Apr 2018 18:35:19
Can any of the Ed's please confirm one way or the other if Luis Enrique will be offered the Chelsea Job at the Seasons end.

I'm sick of the Club making short term appointments and Enrique will be just that plus do a lot of damage along the way. I don't want to keep My ST if He's coming in as it's too costly.

Some info would be greatly appreciated.

Blue_Nose

{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware no decision has yet been made as to what will happen then.}


1.) 29 Apr 2018 20:55:51
You would give up a Season Ticket on the back of a managerial appointment? Beggars belief mate. The waiting list is long and I'm sure a lot of fans would love to take it off you.


2.) 29 Apr 2018 23:53:21
Hey G8,

To be honest I've been having a terrible few days and I saw some articles linking Us strongly with Enrique and I just lost My sh*t.

I know how hard it is to get a ST and how many folks would give their right nutsack to get one but they are not cheap and I just felt really disillusioned with the thought of Luis Enrique taking charge.

The truth is I would prob never give up My ST lightly and it was just an over reaction but I hope and pray Enrique doesn't wind up at the Bridge.


3.) 29 Apr 2018 21:12:33
Cheers Mate, I appreciate You getting back so quickly.

I'm just really not feeling Enrique getting the role lol.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, I can understand that but I am not sure you have the players to make any long term appointment work anyway. The group above him are the important factor to maintain stability.}


4.) 30 Apr 2018 07:30:51
No worries Blue-nose, we all get frustrated at times. I actually have a feeling he is off to Arsenal as their new manager anyway.


5.) 30 Apr 2018 11:33:48
No way would Arsenal be stupid enough to appoint Enrique as manager. The Arse will be looking for a sensible, long-term appointment - unlike us!


 

 

08 Mar 2018 20:50:37
Hey Ed001,

Do You know if there is any truth to the rumours linking Luis Campos of Lille with a move to Chelsea in a Sporting Director role.

I remember reading We were linked with Him after Michael Emanalo left and the rumours seem to have resurfaced in some papers in the last day or so.

If there is any tuth to it, could You shed any light on His qualities for the role other than what I've already read and could there be any relation to a potential move for Leonardo Jardim as Head Coach in the Summer.

Thank You in advance.

Blue_Nose

{Ed001's Note - I don't know if you are still interested in him sorry. I know he was targeted when Emenalo left. All I know of him is that he is a scout, or rather was, who was highly regarded in terms of spotting young talent. He is given a lot of the credit for Monaco's recruitment in recent years, but it is difficult to be sure how much was actually down to him.}


1.) 09 Mar 2018 11:59:46
Thanks Ed, much appreciated.

Yeah pretty much what I had read and heard Myself regarding His previous role particularly at Monaco.

I think it's essential to have Football People as a sounding board between Coach and the Board but whether He's the rite person who knows.

Thanks again Mate.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know either, he is highly regarded as a scout.}

If no Striker is signed between now and the close of the Transfer Window, We absolutely must start the Season with Batshuayi up top and persist with Him.

I was in favour of signing Morata but there is definately something not rite there and He's been around long enough to form a fairly decent opinion on Him.

Whilst Michy's game is limited outside the 18 yard box, He does no where the back of the net is and imo is a far more natural finisher than either Morata or Giroud.

I think We'll play some lovely stuff to watch this Season and I look forward to seeing Us develop but I can't help but think a genuine lack of goals will ultimately be Our downfall. Therefore a Striker who will bag a few goals provided there is good service is an absolute must.

Lets hope Batsman can be that Guy.

KTBFFH!

Blue_Nose

1.) 02 Aug 2018 13:29:46
I think Morata will come good mate. I like the fact that his getting the Chances which means his very clever with his runs and positioning. Hopefully the finishing happens sooner rather than later. Yes the 2nd part of last year was bad but I doubt we we would consider selling him without giving him another chance. His been in for a lot of stick here lately but let's give the guy a chance. We are only in pre-season mode. His not deadwood and nor is Willian. Ridiculous comment by a previous poster. Barca, Real and Madrid after Willan and his been called deadwood, what a joke.


2.) 02 Aug 2018 15:01:11
Not everyone notice something at the same time but it later became clear to all. I see Torres in Morata everytime I watched him. He's also too fragile and will not recover his confidence on time at Chelsea. The further we keep the lower his value.
We need an effective striker to make Sarriball productive or else we might just be as inconsistent as Wenger Arsenal.


3.) 02 Aug 2018 15:14:17
Morata started great last season and then he got injured. I believe that Chelsea has amazing options for striker. All 3 are really good players plus we have Abraham.


 

 

01 Aug 2018 15:52:43
I know it's all just random musings but what if Chelsea and United did some sort of swap deal for Willian and Martial. Willian gets reunited with a Manager He loves and loves Him, Martial moves to a Club where He might get the nod to play in His favoured forward role.
And both Clubs get shot of players who don't really want to be there anymore.

Then what if Chelsea offer palace Moses, Drinkwater and a nice sack of Cash to aquire Zaha whilst they bring in Max Meyer to replace Zaha within the Squad.

I know it's unrealistic and far more complex than that but what if. lol.

KTBFFH!

Hey Folks,

I know it's not the rite time to ask as there are still a few more days of the Transfer Window to do business with both Ins and Outs, however if the Window was to close now, where do You think Chelsea would finish in the Prem.

I ask this question of the Ed's to, just for a bit of fun.

Blue_Nose

1.) 28 Jul 2018 14:56:22
Top four should be the aim, but I do think it will take time for the players to adjust to the way Sarri likes his teams to play . I think we will have to be quite patient in the first few months of the season .
I would settle for top four and hopefully Hudson-Odoi and Loftus-Cheek breaking into the first team, with the view of building again for a title push the following season playing the Sarri way.


2.) 28 Jul 2018 15:06:54
Forgot to add Ampadou to the youngsters being integrated into the first team.


3.) 28 Jul 2018 15:08:38
Hey Superfrank,

I think You're spot on with it taking a while before We start to see the fuits of Sarri's traing ground labour. I hope both the Fans and Roman keep patience if We don't come out of the traps at break neck speed.

I think it's too early to give a proper opinion but I think We'll miss out on Top 4 again unfortunately. I just don't think the squad is good or been freshened up enough.

I hope We have Fun watching Us again though and We can see real progress being made.

KTBFFH!


4.) 28 Jul 2018 15:13:22
I think with the current squad we should be aiming for top 3. Can't see United doing well this season with such a bad atmosphere surrounding the club and their team is very unbalanced. Still think we're better than Spurs as well and Arsenal are a bit of an unknown this coming season. City and Liverpool both look very strong however and I would expect them to be top two. Never ever write us off though, we should know that by now.


5.) 28 Jul 2018 15:22:48
I think because My expectations are fairly low I might be pleasantly surprised. The last time I had poor expectations We Won the league and made the FA Cup Final so You never know I guess.

I think if We can keep Our Better players and get them signed up to new contracts and genuinely commited plus add a few more quality players We could get Ourselves into the Top 3 but I just don't see much business being done now, particularly significant business but stranger things have happened.


6.) 28 Jul 2018 15:25:39
I'm just looking forward to hopefully enjoying watching Chelsea play again. I know we have won trophys but our football has been very defensive and slow the last few seasons.
If Sarri can get us playing the way he got Napoli playing then I will be over the moon.
I'm sure we will have many highs and lows ( hopefully more highs) over the season but if Sarri can get his message across I'm sure it will be an exciting year for Chelsea.


7.) 28 Jul 2018 15:41:21
I totally agree, I want to enjoy the style of Our play regardless of Who We are playing and the result.

I am eternally grateful for the Players We have signed, Coaches We have employed and ofcourse the trophies We have Won in the Abramovich Era. It has really been incredible and I hope it continues without end.

Having said all that, I never assume it will just continue or that We are somehow entitled to be successful. I look at Man City and Man Utd and it's nigh on impossible for Chelsea to compete financially with either and nor do I expect them to. Also there are the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juve and PSG in Europe who are wealthier than Us.

So My thinking is We need to do things smarter and We need to be more entertaining. I would rather finish 4th being a joy to watch rather than 3rd and a chore.

If You are not Winning trophies You need to atleast be a pleasure to watch lol.


8.) 28 Jul 2018 15:58:38
Great shout super frank then the dream the following season sterling, mount and da silva coming into the fold
If Zappa goes I’d like to see Aina as back up tv.


9.) 28 Jul 2018 18:07:28
I think Moses will be back up right back mate with Azpi starting.


10.) 28 Jul 2018 19:44:04
Also don't forget the Europa league lads . Lots of games to blood some youngsters and a champions league place up for grabs!


 

 

14 Jul 2018 13:27:07
Thirdly Sarri's ideas and coaching is likely to take some time to really work. If We don't get off to a flyer how long before the Fans, Media, Players and Owner start to panic and start longing for Sufferball again.

I hope everything works out though, I really do.

KTBFFH!

Blue_Nose

1.) 14 Jul 2018 14:31:17
Good point
Everybody should show patience for once. It took Guadiola couple of seasons to show his magic. It may take longer for Sarri to show us what’ he’s all about. I too wonder how long are we prepared to wait for his transformation and success. Maybe if he doesn’t win anything at his first season. will stay. Coz if you win big trophiy in your first season at CHELSEA? You’re a Gonna.


 

 

14 Jul 2018 13:24:31
Secondly whilst Sarri supposedly isn't one for making demands to the Club over signings and gets on with what He has You don't want to be shackling Him before He starts by losing Courtois, Kante and Hazard before a ball is kicked in anger.

Our success this Season depends as much on Our better players commiting and staying as Sarri's Tactics and work on the training ground.

Thirdly.

Hey BlueisthecolourSW6,

It's unusual that the Newspaper have gone as far as naming names, however it's a newspaper (I use the term news lightly) and considering the newspaper in question I'm calling BS.

It's a story that will get people talking, particularly under the current Political Climate so it's good for business.

There are already Chelsea Fans getting excited about the prospect of an even wealthier person taking over the Club and some of these same people will be kicking off if and when Roman doesn't bankroll Us to the tune of hundreds of millions in the Summer Window. Citing Roman has lost His ambition, He's holding Us back etc etc, blah blah blah.

Anyway onwards and upwards as always.

KTBFFH!

Lets be honest, it doesn't matter how much We recieve if Hazard should be sold We will not be able to replace Him directly.

Football is about opinions ofcourse but I believe there are only a small handful of players as good as or better than Hazard. I would say Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar and Bale.

Of those Ronaldo has just moved to Juve and is more of a Striker these days, Messi will be impossible to pry away from Barca, Neymar would cost the GDP of a medium sized country and wouldn't entertain the Prem and Bale I couldn't see coming to Chelsea if He did return to England plus His injury record is a major concern.

Beyond these Guys, everyone else are inferior to Hazard imo.

Still no use crying over spilt milk and if He does go We'll just have to get on with it.

KTBFFH!

Thanks again Ed.

That is basically My point, if the Club no longer wish or are capable of blowing the other Clubs out of the water when it comes to signing players this is absolutely understandable and completely fine but the Club have to realise that it will become harder to Win the real Top Trophies, not impossible but tougher and therefore their patience with Head Coaches needs to improve as they are allowed to implement a Vision and Plan for the Squad moving forward.

I personaly would like to see Us play a more adventurous, aggressive, attacking style of play in general so would actually be in favour of someone less pragmatic (not suicidal football ofcourse) .

I look at Our 7 league defeats this Season and they were all games really We should have been getting something from with the exception of City who taught Us a bit of a footballing lesson on the day. And here's the thing that irks Me the most about it, is people say We have a better defence than the likes of Liverpool yet We still lost them not purely because of poor defending but because We didn't dominate Our opponents, put fear into them and score the goals that make the defending less crucial.

Even a side that rarely concedes has to create chances and score goals to Win Matches which We don't do enough of.
