If we bought Cech back as back-up and mentor to Butland we could have us a very good deal. Allison has greater experience in International football and playing for a major Italian team BUT is he a better keeper than Butland technically, I personally don't think so and Butland has got stuck with poor players in front of him most of his career and of course he adds to the English contingent.

butland better than allison? dreaming there mate.

Fact or fiction I have no idea but one of the papers is apparently reporting that Abramovich is prepared to invest in new players but nine current players are to be offered for sale; Luiz, Drinkwater, Pedro, Batshuayi, Zouma, Kenedy, Van Ginkel and Piazon and probably Hazard. Any thoughts if true?


1.) 01 May 2018 20:16:00
Just a typical rag comment in my opinion C1955.
If you chuck enough darts some will hit the target.

2.) 01 May 2018 20:36:15
Similar generation TomB. What would your reaction be if true? If we sold them for the suggested amounts then I would not be unhappy if RA topped it up and we bought wisely as the team needs a real freshen up.

3.) 01 May 2018 20:54:49
Our is owned by a man I treat, for obvious reasons, with virtual reverence.
So whatever he does, I’m sorry to say, I’m going to be pretty subservient.
I have already renewed my OAP season ticket.
Under the ownership of RA I think our ticket prices have only gone up once. Which is remarkable.
So, he can sell whoever he likes and buy whoever he wants, I’m just another sucker supporter that so many clubs rely upon but few pay any heed too.
Sorry C1955 for being such a miserable old twat but I’m not having a good year!

id tack of list of cahil luiz fabregas pedro drinkwater maybe van ginkel but kenedy zouma etc no.

Reports appearing everywhere that we are interested in Palmieri of Roma for £20m. Anyone guess why we are after a player for that money who has been on loan most of his career, played one game this season for Roma and we 'might' pay £20m? We obviously have someone who likes Brazilian born players and few work out in the EPL.


1.) 17 Jan 2018 12:13:11
His equivalent to to Andy Carrol but in the left wing back position.

This lad was loaned out from Santos to Palermo and was playing as a back up to their first team player. He was then loaned out to AS Roma and was playing as a back up to Digne. He was then bought for a small fee. He also got injured seriously. This lad has hardly played enough football, if he can't make the first team of Palermo or be ahead of Kolarov in Roma then how is ever going to be good for us as a back up? I would rather throw in Kennedy and give him games. This is the story of our transfers nowadays.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 15:47:53
Palmieri isn't the finished product yet but he does have potential.

3.) 17 Jan 2018 16:23:39
We don’t need potential we need quality. Proven quality,

4.) 17 Jan 2018 17:16:35
Exactly. Had it with word 'potential'. For the last 5 years we have had potentials in our academy. We need quality now.

5.) 17 Jan 2018 17:53:33
Then let's pray that our beloved club repents and starts spending money again.

6.) 17 Jan 2018 18:37:46
Lol Obinna. I think the Torres transfwr broke camels back.

7.) 17 Jan 2018 18:53:07
£20m for Carroll, £20m for Palmieri, £40m for squad fillers. That £40 would go a long way to get someone that actually compliments the team. Come the end of the season and we lose Conte plus the transfer fiasco we have and the likes of Hazard, Courtois, Azi and even Morata would think "this club has lost its ambition". Actually, Batkley is looking a steal at £15m!

8.) 17 Jan 2018 21:36:43
Emerson had a fantastic season for Roma last season, before getting injured in May. He only returned last month for them, and has played one or two games since then.

For under 25m he'd be a fantastic buy in my opinion. We can't compete with PSG if they're going for Sandro. Emerson would be a very good alternative, if his health isn't an issue of course.

9.) 17 Jan 2018 22:53:31
CFCShak - and Aubameyang isn’t quality no? 21 goals on 23 games this season.

10.) 18 Jan 2018 11:38:12
TruBlu . Auba is more than quality. Why you reffering to a player we are not linked with?

For the older supporters, a mention for Ken Shellito our former right back, who sadly died on the 31st October. A great defender and master of the sliding tackle who had a potentially, illustrious career cut short by a knee injury at the age of 25 in 1965. Fond memories.


1.) 04 Nov 2018 14:07:14
My dad always said that if Shellito had not suffered his injury, he would have been England's right-back at the 1966 World Cup.

2.) 04 Nov 2018 15:29:55
Miss Darren wood, my old man spoke so highly of him. Said he was one of the best to play for Chelsea, but his injury cut short his career.



28 Oct 2018 15:50:52
Barkley looked fully fit, oozing confidence and enjoying his football. Not the strongest opposition but his best game to date. I thought there was a little bit of Lampard about him today.


1.) 28 Oct 2018 17:37:46
Physical team. Top performance against a team that is hard to beat at turf moor.

2.) 28 Oct 2018 19:01:44
Barkley was excellent. Great to have some real competition for the midfield spots. Willian clearly looks soo much more comfortable on the left being able to cut in on his right foot. Unfortunate that Hazard has that position on lock, unless Sarri tries Hazard at CF at some point. Morata was very good and should've had a couple more. Maybe our best performance of the season so far and it was without our best player! . Constantly improving under Sarri with every game, lovely stuff. And what a player Jorginho is, soo good watching him in this system.

3.) 28 Oct 2018 20:16:07
I thought that was an absolutely stunning performance - the best Sarriball exhibition to date. Ok, Burnley are not in good form but they finished 7th last season but, today, I don't think it would have made any difference because we just didn't allow them to get the ball. I am so excited about this team development under Sarri.



16 Sep 2018 09:05:18
Pedro and Willian both had excellent games yesterday and maybe the secret of getting the best is to rotate them as Pedro does not last 90 mins and at times nor does Willian. Giroud showed us how useful he is and clearly Hazard has tuned into what he might do laying the ball off. Morata is now finding the spotlight firmly on him. The defence still looks shaky and either the format is wrong or we have the wrong players for the right format, certainly Luiz looks uncomfortable. I know we paid a lot of money for Kepa but we cannot use inexperience as an excuse, to me he looks decidedly shaky, punching when he should catch and a distinct lack of authority in his area.


1.) 16 Sep 2018 11:03:12
C1955, I agree totally about Luiz looking shaky yesterday but I think with the amount of games coming up other defenders will be given a chance and they have to stake their claim.
I’m with you on Kepa as well but I guess it’s to soon to be sure about his quality. When we signed him I did the usual thing and searched all the platforms that showed his performances.
The problem I found was that nearly all the sites seemed to show him making wonder saves. With none showing his week points.
My view is, he is a fantastic shot stopper and very quick to recover his position, he is good coming off his line with one in ones and he is comfortable with both feet. He generally stays on his line for crosses and nearly always punches rather than catches.
The lad has big boots to fill with our last few keepers all being top class.



12 Sep 2018 21:41:04
I thought it was a great opportunity for Loftus-Cheek to showcase his ability and what did he do, very little and as always ambled his way through a match. I would not be surprised if he was sold in January as he is not showing any signs of developing.


1.) 13 Sep 2018 09:05:22
He will get his chance in Europa league but I’ve said it before his not good enough. All those matches for place and you hear nothing. then he’d have a great game and be praised and spoke about his chance at Chelsea. then go another 4/ 5 games ( if not injured ) as a bystander, i don’t know if his a CM, or CAM doesn’t do either well enough,



10 Aug 2018 20:03:19
Now the wait begins. The forum has a dozen differing opinions on any given subject therefore what do you think our starting line-up and subs will be Saturday?


1.) 10 Aug 2018 20:21:27
My squad would be


However I think it will be
Alonso at the expense of Emerson. Barkley at the expense of Kovacic as the former has had a full pre season.

2.) 10 Aug 2018 21:27:31
Given the way Sarri wants to play I also think he will go with Emerson and certainly play Kovacic. I am sure Hudson-Odoi will be on the bench and get on, Morata has to start for confidence although I feel it is more than that with him. However, Sarri might play Hazard through the middle with Hudson-Odoi and Willian either side.

3.) 10 Aug 2018 22:55:04
I like Ampadu to replace Luiz.

4.) 11 Aug 2018 09:09:14
I think Hudson Odoi might start instead of Hazard for this match and I also think Pedro will play instead of Willian.

I’ve also got a funny feeling that Cahil isn’t as finished as some people think. Not today but I think he might play a lot of games on the right side next to Rudiger as he did with JT.

Anyway, who cares what the team is as long as we get three points!

Come on my mighty BLUES.

5.) 11 Aug 2018 09:55:18
id like to see Christensen instead of Luiz. won't happen tho. if start Willian Hazard and Hudson Odoi up top.

I thought the same, Kante's new role as it appears is leaving holes in our break up play which he is a master at and with Kovacic a likely starter from now we cannot rely on Jorghino as that is not his game. Barkley looked better but he does not rack back and is still fading too quickly. It was clear from Sarri's comments that he expects a lot of tracking back when required which 'one or two' do not like doing. Luiz looks lost and it cannot be going unnoticed by Sarri and in his preseason Ampadu looked very good, I am not convinced that Sarri is taken by Christensen. Anyone else worried by Willian and this constant slowing play and then disappearing.?

He has had major reconstructive ACL surgery. You have to feel sorry for the guy, fought his way back from surgery after surgery to fulfill some of his potential last season and this happens.

Any truth that Lyon upped the price to £72m 15 minutes before the deadline?


{Ed001's Note - no that was Tuesday they did that, hence why it took until now for Chelsea to agree. Obviously a case of time and options run out so they said yes.}

Remember as long as they get their sale sheet by 5.00pm they have a further two hours to complete everything.

You are correct KingFrank. We now have a midfield that could be extremely efficient but they are not goal scoring midfielders so once again the onus will be on Hazard. If we are trying to get Fekir it will be as a forward and his goal scoring record is good but it will mean whoever plays out of him, Morata, willian and Giroud must look to get at least 10 or more goals apiece or we will struggle again.

Ken Shellito head and shoulders above all the others. What a tragedy it was when his career was cut short. Him and Eddie McReadie, masters of the well timed, sliding tackle.

A non-vital game is no excuse. They were representing the club and given an opportunity to show what they can do. Ampadu always catches my eye, calm and never bothered about the own goal; he is going to be very important to us down the line. Loftus-Cheek had another opportunity to grasp his chance and was OK but sloppy and until he improves he will remain a bit player. The other one under the spotlight was Hudson-Odoi and again he showed that he will be another star for us but in a years time. His inexperience shows at times as he tries to impress too hard and I think he tires over a hard 90 minutes.

Unless we can get some firepower we will have more games like this. Possession is one thing but you have to convert it into goals. Too many weaknesses at present to do anything but battle for the elusive fourth spot.

obinna123: Both your comments highlight the Jorghino/ Kante issue mentioned earlier in the season. When we are under pressure the top teams run right through Jorghino whereas Kante is a different proposition; as we found out with Fabregas, you cannot have a midfielder with no ball winning ability against the top teams.

EdOO1: Good answer. He was injured and at just 18 (September) he is too young to rush whilst he is still growing. Sarri likes him and for an eighteen year old he has such a mature head on him and not afraid to raise his voice to older players that need guidance. I think he is one of the best youngsters I have seen for a long time and providing nobody turns his head he will be a star of the future for us but tragically he decided to play for Wales!


{Ed001's Note - Wales got very lucky there.}
