Hey Ed002,

With Michael Emanalo recently leaving His role at Chelsea FC as Director of Football.

I was wondering who, if anyone are The Club looking at as a replacement?

Thank You in advance.


{Ed002's Note - The club have held talks with the person they would like. But I am not the one to provide details to this page.}

1.) 27 Nov 2017 09:55:56
Thanks for the reply Ed002, much appreciated.

2.) 27 Nov 2017 13:06:18
Perhaps one of the trolls would like to provide us with the details. Obviously if ed02 knows then they will also be able to provide the information. Come on gents we are waiting.

3.) 27 Nov 2017 13:57:31
Sid, you beat me to it.

So, I've googled it, and is either Frank or Didier.

Must be true! *sarcasm*.

4.) 27 Nov 2017 14:13:25
I reckon there a a good chance it's lamps, can't see it being drogba personally but you never know.

5.) 27 Nov 2017 14:15:15
I’m so old, I will now have to google the meaning of “troll” in posting terminology!

6.) 27 Nov 2017 14:15:20
It'll be interesting to see hypothetically whether Lamps would get the same levels of abuse Emenalo did if transfer windows don't go perfectly. I think not!

7.) 27 Nov 2017 16:20:05
I wanted the ex Monaco Man, had some brilliant young players come in while he was there.

8.) 27 Nov 2017 16:47:22
Emenalo is at Monaco, good rebuilding project for him after their summer exodus.

Hey Folks,

I know most Chelsea Supporters would like the Club to add to the Squad in January and whilst there are no guarantees and it's not usually the best time to do business I am curious to know which areas of the squad and the players they would look to sign in Jan.

I personaly was surprised We didn't sign another Striker in the Summer, someone older with Prem experience who could hold the ball up and give Us a physical presence up top. I would look to that role again if possible although I can't think of who I would look to now that Llorente has wound up at Spurs.

I also would like Us to look into signing a Winger/ Wide Forward to add to Our creativity and Goal threat. Whilst He wouldn't come cheap I think We could do a lot worse than Riyad Mahrez whose showing some good form in a struggling side this Season.

I also think We need to be looking at a Left Back/ Wing Back especially if We persist with the 3-4-3 system as they are argurably the most crucial players in such a system although I think this is more likely to be addressed next Summer.

I look forward to reading Your thoughts on this Guys and Gals.



1.) 23 Oct 2017 07:24:35
I think we might sign one player in the next window and only then if the club think it’s the right player or good value.
I’m not sure but haven’t we sold more players than we’ve bought in the winter window?

2.) 24 Oct 2017 17:23:37
I wonder if we will try to use Baba Rahman when he comes back from injury as cover on the left side, or if we will loan him out (maybe Schalke are still interested) to build match fitness.

3.) 24 Oct 2017 18:48:21
Good point. Will be interesting to see what happens to Baba!

4.) 24 Oct 2017 21:14:10
They could maybe get another player in, but where we have had several injuries over the last few weeks. Some of them will not be back for a month. That in itself will be like having new signings and also they will be fresh. This will hopefully give us a boost.



25 Aug 2017 13:44:09
I might be very wide of the mark but if Oxlaide-Chamberlain is really looking for a move away from Arsenal, with Chelsea and Liverpool the 2 Clubs interested, isn't it more likely He would favour a move to Merseyside than West London.

If Chamberlain allegedly wanting a more settled Midfield role is true and a cause of frustration for Him then I would think Anfield is more likely to consistently offer that.

I personaly would welcome the signing of Chamberlain in part because of His versatility but isn't that part of His problem at Arsenal?

I really don't see this deal coming off, assuming there have been any.


1.) 25 Aug 2017 14:08:24
offers actually made by the Club.


2.) 25 Aug 2017 14:11:32
I don't actually know if Oxlade-Chamberlain has a problem with which position he's played in at arsenal. I believe it's more his ambition to win trophies, compete for the league and play in the Champions League that he wants. Arsenal cannot offer him that (especially now Wenger is there for another few seasons) .

Oxlade-Chamberlains ambition is bigger than Arsenals and that's why he wants a move. If he moves to Liverpool that's just a sideways step, if he wants to achieve things in his career he should join us.

3.) 25 Aug 2017 22:54:25
The only reason Liverpool are interested is that they've found out Ox used to play for Southampton!

4.) 26 Aug 2017 11:17:11
will he play cm for liverpool with can henderson der probably not so makes no difference hel get more game time at chelsea between roatating with cms and moses.



19 Mar 2017 19:33:02
Is Antonio Conte not keen on Batshuayi or doesn't trust him because he's found his game time hugely limited this Season even when Diego Costa has been unavailable?

Are Chelsea looking to loan or move Batshuayi on?




26 Aug 2014 16:22:47
Hey Ed002,

Any updates on the possibility of Fernando Torres moving on as there is quite a bit of speculation in the Media linking Him with potential moves to Italy?

And if He is to move on, any information on who Chelsea FC would like to bring to the Club?

Thanking You in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Chelsea hope to complete the signing of Destro and Torres has the option of a move to Milan he can think about.}

1.) WelcoMe back ed002.

Thanks for the info

Is there any.other news regarding players like khedira, rabiot and even carvalho


{Ed002's Note - That was just to stop people worrying if anything was going on or not. I really have no interest in contributing at this time.}

2.) Good to see ya back ED

3.) Thank you ed002 this is great news

4.) Thanks for your input ed002, it is great to see a post from you. I appreciate your information as I and probably most chelsea fans are very interested in the future of torres and possible replacement. Hope we see some more input from you in the days running upto the end of the window. Any morsel of information is as always much appreciated.

5.) Can you stop me worrying about whether or not Torres is likely to be tempted with this offer?

6.) When will any of you learn? Ed has made it crystal clear that he does not want to add anything else.Now stop bombarding him with questions.

7.) Thank You Ed002.

Much appreciated.

8.) Appreciate the news ed002

9.) Get out of his backside Battersea, there's nothing wrong with asking a question. Whether or not it's answered is another matter, but if nobody asks questions, this particular page becomes even more pointless than it has over the last month or two.

Rest in Peace Dernot Drummy.


1.) 28 Nov 2017 08:55:00
RIP Dermot Drummy. Our club and several players owe you a debt of gratitude that deserves to be remembered.
I had the pleasure of meeting him several times and he was a really nice man.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all of his family and friends.

2.) 28 Nov 2017 11:14:08
Couldn't believe the news this morning. He did some absolutely incredible work for our youth teams and players like Ake, RLC, Chalobah all making their names in the PL wouldn't be the same without this man. Such sad news.

3.) 28 Nov 2017 18:59:08
Such sad news, Dermot did a fantastic job at Chelsea and will be sadly missed and hopefully tomorrow night he will be suitably remembered.
RIP Dermot.



29 Aug 2017 17:05:42
Hi can any of the Ed's please confirm which players We are actually working on signing. With only 2 days remaining of the window We must be completing deals now.

Are We actually signing Oxlaide-Chamberlain or not?

Are We actially signing Drinkwater or not?

Are We actually signing anyone else or not?

Thanks in advance.





30 Jul 2017 03:57:42
Hi Ed002,

Given that Chelsea are a more successful Club, have a larger Fanbase, more favourable Location, generate bigger Revenues (excluding questionable income streams) and have a Profitable Academy/ Loanee system.

Why is it Manchester City spend more than Us regularly in the Transfer Windows?

Do they not care about FFP, have their questionable income streams.


{Ed002's Note - I don't understand your question nor why you are asking on the Chelsea page. Are you suggesting that you think Chelsea should be replacing players for no apparent reason - just to spend more money? That would just be stupid.}

1.) 30 Jul 2017 11:38:09
Hi Ed002,

I hit the send button before finishing the piece hence why it makes little sense.

Anyway Thanks for the reply.



17 Jul 2017 13:20:27
I don't believe the Rumours concerning Aubameyang, Belotti or Morata. We are no longer a side that throws money around and all of these players will command huge fees and big contracts.

The Aguero rumours are either a slow news day or Chelsea leaking rumours to get the Fans a buzz like Arsenal do pretty much every Summer knowing full well it cannot happen.

I think We will end up making a late offer for Benteke who won't come cheap but cheaper than the others We've been linked to and on a significantly lower conteact which will seal the deal.

It won't be as exciting as Aubameyang but He's a solid Striker and We could fo worse.



1.) 17 Jul 2017 14:15:53
If we don't sign a top class striker (aubameyang, belotti, morata) we can forget about having much success this season. In my opinion we need a top striker (one of above) and another back up, be that Benteke, Llorente or someone in that tier. As I've said before in my opinion Michy has to stay. So come September I'd be happy with one of Aubameyang, Belotti, Morata. With Michy and Llorente/ Benteke as the back ups.

2.) 17 Jul 2017 14:35:59
Bobby I agree, When replacing Diego Costa We ideally need to be going for a proven high quality Forward that's why Aubameyang would be My choice. I'm not concerned about how His sell on value will decrease etc.

But I'm not convinced Chelsea are even considering Him let alone about to make an offer, I think the same applies to Belotti and whilst I think Chelsea have some interest in Morata, I don't think it's anything more at the Fee Madrid will demand.

Benteke certainly won't make Us stronger but it's just who I think We'll wind up with.

3.) 17 Jul 2017 14:45:52
Why is it that, for the 2nd summer in a row, we are left scrambling around looking for players when other clubs seem to do their business early!? I know that we have to take what the media says (especially about Chels) with a very large pinch of salt but if there is any truth that we are haggling over £3mil with Real for Danilo, then someone on the transfer committee needs shooting!

4.) 17 Jul 2017 14:47:55
You put it rightly 'I think we will end up'. So it basically is your guess based on nothing mate.

5.) 17 Jul 2017 15:15:44
Absolutely LRDlt, it is only My opinion. I have that opinion based on various factors but I don't profess to know anything about Our Transfer Dealings.

It's just a hunch and one which I hope is wrong.

6.) 17 Jul 2017 15:55:30

I totally agree with you on the Aubameyang front. If he costs 70m with little re-sale value so be it. We need a striker who is going to bang in 20-30 goals a season, and that could and be the difference between ending the season with or without silverware.

7.) 17 Jul 2017 16:04:24
That's how I see things Bobby.

When Chelsea sign players other than really Young Kids I am thinking about the impact they can have in the First Team in the next few Seasons. I'm not thinking about how much We'll get if We sell them or what happens if they flop etc.
I appreciate these are genuine concerns for the Club though.

Aubameyang appears in footballing terms to be the most accomplished striker that appears to be available rite now and He would be My personal preferance.

8.) 17 Jul 2017 17:10:28
Morata and Belotti are not top strikers. This summer there were only 2 top strikers PEA and Lukaku. Belotti will end up at AC Milan for 30-40 m€ max. Morata will stay as a backup striker in Madrid.

9.) 17 Jul 2017 22:13:25
Morata could be a top striker if given the game time and his scoring record to minutes played is very good plus he is versatile, with PEA we would find ourselves without our striker during the African Cup. Sadly there does not appear much enthusiasm from Morata to join us which leaves us with Bats for the friendlies coming up and unless we pull our finger out, the start of the season. We do not need Benteke, Llorente would be ideal as cover if we fail to sign any of our main targets but just who were those 'main' targets? Given the early decision with Costa Conte must have indicated who he wanted but to me we are srabbling around for someone.



12 Jul 2017 00:19:07
Question for the Ed's. Are Chelsea currently involved in any official talks with other Clubs concerning signing a Striker?


1.) 12 Jul 2017 01:40:50
As of now no.
Hopefully we will be holding soon.

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.

Hey Antibot, a number of Our Players are capable of playing a number of roles/ positions within the Team so having a Squad of 25 is probably unlikely.

Rudiger can play CB or RB.
Azpilicueta can play CB, RB, LB.
Alonso can play LB or CB.
Pedro WF or ST.

I'm not saying they are equally as strong in each position but can do a job there.

This means a slightly smaller squad is workable and players are more likely to get Game Time which should help for a Happier Squad.

I think 2 players for each position let alone 2 equally strong players for each position is unrealistic.

GK: Preferably an experienced Home Grown understudy to Courtois if as expected Begovic moves on.

CB: Van Dijk, a proven premier league player with all the attributes to be one of the best.

WB: Mendy or Sidibe. As Aina or Azpi can cover either side at a push if needs be.

CM: Naingollan, complete player with and the Drive Energy and Passion in the Game. Great shot from range to.

AM/ WF: Sanchez, ticks every box (including ticking off the gooners)

CF: (If Costa leaves) Belotti, I really really believe He's going to blow up and would do really well here.
(If Costa stays) Dembele as a useable talented alternative.

These are My ideals I don't expect them to all come off if any.

Hey Ed002,

Not being funny but that seems a gross generalisation that "there is a player that is unhappy because the (Fans) want Him out". Who are these Fans that You talk of and who is this overly precious Player?

I don't think it's likely that Conte goes after a potential defeat to Watford but it's an opinion and I highly doubt Conte is going to be under any more pressure because of an opinion on this site.

If I have offended You in some way, that wasn't My intention and You can see from My comment there is nothing offensive about it.

Anyway keep up the good work and KTBFFH!


{Ed002's Note - There is a new breed of what are clearly rubbish fans. The return of the knuckle draggers. This site has become unuseable because of people like them. No one is interested in what the club are doing about transfers.}

Hey Bobby,

I would love to think that Conte is fully committed to Chelsea and that Roman and Co were going to spend big like City and United to compete with the Manc Clubs domestically and the likes of Barca, Bayern, Madrid and PSG in Europe but the reality is clearly different.

We don't generate the income of Barca, Madrid and United and We don't have the private wealth of City's and PSG's Owners.

We have spent big money since Conte has been at Chelsea but have brought in huge money to snd whilst We have signed some good players We have let good players move on to, so the squad is at best as good as it was but certainly no better.

This isn't a complaint, just an observation but I think We as fans have to temper Our expectations.

We Won the Prem last Season and clearly deserved it but We had no European Football which clearly helped with recovery and preperation, aswell as having just 1 competition to focus on and I felt Our rivals also underachieved massively with the exception of Spurs.

I would say realisticaly We are a Top 4 side with outside ambitions of challenging for the Prem but We are not at the same level as City and United.

I want to Win every game as all Fans do, I'm disappointed when We don't as all Fans are but I have come to accept that the days of spending huge without selling big first are long gone and Roman is no longer the biggest fish in the pool. Therefore I don't expect the same success as before.

We're more than capable of challenging for the Title with the Squad We have but considering the toll of european football and the fixtures following Our Champions League group fixtures I think We'll finish 3rd as things stand.

I think You and Me are singing straight from the same hymn sheet Jackson.

I think Batshuayi has His weaknesses but He has the attributes to make a very good striker and at the end of the day when You shell out £30+ Million on a player, You have to trust Your investment.

City have clearly improved in the fullback positions which they needed, so fair play to them for that but their best defender is a walking injury waiting to happen and there is little protection in front of an already questionable back line.

I agree UTD are favourites as they have the strongest squad througout overall, they have players that can both play and dig in when required, they have a very good Manager that will have properly evaluated the squad and in Lukaku I think they have a flat track bully to help turn those frustrating draws into more wins.

I know lots of people are frustrated at players allegedly rejecting Us but I feel that word is misleading and thrown out there to cause controversy.

I think the only player You could argue rejected Chelsea if reports are to be believed is Oxlaide-Chamberlain because We submitted an offer but He prefered another option and let's be honest if He did join whilst He gives good versatility, where does He play?

Everyone will have their own views on the state of the squad, who should start and who should make the bench but let's say for arguments sake We go into the Arsenal Match with:

GK: Courtois
CB: Rüdiger
CB: Luiz
CB: Azpilicueta
LWB: Alonso
CM: Bakayoko
CM: Kante
RWB: Moses
AM/ WF: Hazard
AM/ WF: Pedro
CF: Morata



Can anyone say that's a poor matchday squad, really?

I for one am very excited for the Season ahead.

Jackson, that is probably the best post I've ever read on this site and there have been some good'uns over the years. Completely sums Our situation up perfectly in terms of the Clubs transfer window.

I've looked at Our teansfer dealings in comparison with the other top 6 sides and I actually think We have done aswell if not better than any of them in terms of what the Club actually needed. Ofcourse We could have added a few more but Our squad is very adaptable with players more than capable of playing a number of different roles to a good standard.

My only gripe would be not signing another option up top, I am concerned that Batshuayi is not the Man to hang Our hat on should Morata suffer an injury or serious loss of form but We spent good money on Him so have to put Our faith in Him regardless. Still another body as an option would have made this a very good transfer window for Me.
