Sounds like we are close to signing Carroll lads. oh dear oh dear oh dear.

CFCAdam

 

 

29 Aug 2017 19:59:15
To sign.

Oxlaide-Chamberlain
Drinkwater,
Barkley
Llorente.

CFCAdam

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


2.) 29 Aug 2017 20:17:03
Thought Llorente was injured, but might be wrong.


3.) 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.


4.) 29 Aug 2017 20:27:42
Looking very likely and they would all add great squad depth.


5.) 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.


6.) 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.


7.) 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!


8.) 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.


9.) 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.


10.) 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.

Ed002, are Chelsea interested in Sergi Roberto?

CFCAdam

{Ed002's Note - No idea. He was long ago.}


1.) 24 Jul 2017 16:45:16
His profile suits what Chelsea needs. I really wish we can get him.

But Ed; Even if Chelsea were to be interested, how feasible do you think a deal for him would be? I know u aren't a prophet though.

{Ed002's Note - It depends on the price - which I suspect would be high.}


2.) 24 Jul 2017 17:16:39
Thanks Ed (s) ; i have really learnt a lot from you guy (s) in terms of football. People in my neighbourhood seem to consult me these as regards transfer. Thanks all of you- A LOT.


3.) 24 Jul 2017 20:25:19
nwanne obinna biko nwanyo nwanyo. I never read your coment finish b4 i begin suspect say na 9ja.

{Ed002's Note - You should meet up - you are both in the same city and I am not hip to the Yarobu (?) or Igbo (?) languages beyond inital recognition. It would be cool if you guys could get together.}


 

 

21 Jul 2017 20:49:46
Ed002. reports now surfacing that Chelsea are looking at signing Sarr from Nice. The player you've mentioned all year. 👏👏👏👍🏼👍🏼 Great info as per.

CFCAdam

1.) 21 Jul 2017 21:53:36
Also Ed002, are we after Oxlaide-Chamberlain? Can't see it myself but maybe an alternative to Danilo. If you don't wanna answer Ed002, any chance of the other Eds answering?


2.) 21 Jul 2017 22:03:58
Would be Malang Sarr?


3.) 21 Jul 2017 22:12:52
That's the one. Ed002 been saying we've been looking at him all season.


4.) 21 Jul 2017 22:26:05
Just saw that Real Madrid, Barcelona and Arsenal are all in for him.


5.) 21 Jul 2017 22:36:57
With the french players we have, I think we have a great chance of signing him if it's true.


6.) 22 Jul 2017 11:56:29
What french players? Kante remy and boga?


7.) 22 Jul 2017 17:02:32
Kante, Bakayoko, Zouma, Cesar and Michy played out in france. All links mate.


8.) 22 Jul 2017 18:44:51
I don't know why you thing grown men on massive wages need to "settle" these are not children. For a player to come to chelsea he wants to play and win. Forget holding hands.


9.) 22 Jul 2017 19:14:15
Theres a lot of eastern europeans at my work but when i started there i went on my own. I didn't need British hgv drivers to come with me to "help me settle in"


10.) 22 Jul 2017 19:16:43
Ok i take your point. Maybe get teddy over.


11.) 22 Jul 2017 20:06:16
He's 18. Still a young lad. 👏👏👏 well done on settling down on your own. Your parents should be very proud!


12.) 22 Jul 2017 20:58:42
We could get him a rubiks cube.


13.) 22 Jul 2017 21:14:32
We could. Or we could get the players to look after each other. With the culture difference etc, would certainly help the new players settle in. Not every one settles in another country.


 

 

19 Jul 2017 22:09:30
Anyone know what's going on with Danilo? Reports now conflicting that we are still in with a chance if signing him.

If the stadium is put on hold, does that potentially mean more money to spend on players?

CFCAdam

1.) 31 May 2018 17:19:16
We will only spend what the Business model allows.

The club is being understandably run as a business now has it has been for last few years.

We just have to except the BP. So, my guess is no extra money!


 

 

02 Feb 2018 10:11:15
Morning all,

I have a question for you.

Are our expectations of this squad too high and should we actually be happy with how we are performing? I say this because last season we had a very good striker in Costa and we had ample time to re-energise between games. This season is not the complete opposite as I do believe we still have a very good striker in Morata (just needs to get used to the pace and physical side of things in this league), but we are playing a lot more games.

Looking at the squad we have, let’s be totally honest, it’s not a championship winning nor Champions League winning one is it? Yes you can point to Leicester but that was a freak season and 1 I doubt we’ll ever see again. I mean, we have 3 world class players in Courtais, Kante and Hazard and that’s it. We have very good players in Azpi, Willian, Morata, Christensen (not yet world class) . The rest you could say are good players. We don’t have the squads of United/ City with world class or at least very good players in each position and even in depth. I just think that maybe we do need to sit back and actually examine what we have and how well Conte is doing within this squad. Yes we’ve had some terrible results and performances as of late, but isn’t that just down to lack of confidence? We cannot say that the tactics aren’t working because they are/ were. We only lacked a striker who could put the ball in the net. We were definsively sound up until a few games ago with 6 clean sheets in 7 games. I don’t like Contes constant rotation of the back 3, we found the players working well together we should have left it. But is there reasons why he’s rotating them? He gets to see them every day, we don’t know how they are feeling or what knocks they may be carrying.

I just feel sacking Conte when to be honest he is doing a very good job in keeping us in the top 4 with the squad he has isn’t the answer. Neither will it be in the summer. With the World Cup on the horizon the pre season will be a short one. Won’t help a new manager coming in.

If you remember when Chelsea were looking at appointing Guardiola, he said we would need 10 players and let’s be honest, it’s the truth. We need upgrades all over the park. Cahill, Moses, Zappacosta, Fabregas, Pedro just to name a few. As I said a few weeks back we can go in 1 or 2 directions. Install the youth, maybe miss out on CL for a few years and progress with them, or shift out the players who no longer cut it and buy BETTER players not just squad players which we have been doing. We’ve wasted £200m so far since we won the league and not one of those players signed has made the starting 11 better.

CFCAdam

1.) 02 Feb 2018 10:35:45
Here’s my squad in MY OPINION:

Tibo - World Class
Willy C - good back up.
Eduardo - good 3rd choice - but could a youth take this?

Cesar - very good/ World Class.
Moses - good but good enough for CFC - No.
Zappacosta - good but same as Moses.
Christensen Very good - potential to be World Class.
Luiz - very good on his day.
Cahill - good but not good enough for CFC anymore.
Rudiger - good with potential to be Very good.
Alonso - good. Defensively suspect.
Emerson - unsure.

Kante - World Class.
Bakayoko - good - next season will tell us more.
Fabregas - good. But now too slow for CFC counter attacking.
Drinkwater - good, but good enough for CFC - not for me.

Hazard - World Class.
Willian - good/ very good on days when he can produce. Under-rated in my eyes.
Pedro - good, but lacks that something.
Barkley - unsure.

Morata - very good but needs to get stronger and get used to the prem.
Giroud - unsure but another squad filler.

So this is what I mean re squad capable to challenging for the major titles. Let’s be honest it’s not good enough. This is why I think Conte deserves more credit. We could have Jose, Guardiola, Enrique, Ancelotti etc as our manager and I still think we’d be in this position.

We were spoilt last season and need to realise that how good a manager Conte actually is. I still believe we will finish in the top 4. We won’t get past Barcelona but that could be a blessing in disguise by freeing up some resting time.


2.) 02 Feb 2018 12:15:20
For the want of being controversial I do not think with have any world class players. Tibo is very, very good but his throwing and kicking are poor and I always felt Cech was a better shot stopper. Kante has had two excellent seasons and works his socks off but I think his limitations have come to the fore this year, passing and shot could improve as could his tackling, however his anticipation of what is going on around him is top rate. Now to Hazard, he is not in the Messi or Ronaldo class although exceptional. Far too inconsistent and does not score as many as his possession warrants and never really made an impact on the world stage. I personally think his style is best suited to the EPL than any other league because here defenders commit and he can use his low centre of gravity to get past them and across ready for the tap tackle; in International football and Spanish league they do not commit as much nullifying his impact and he is quick off the mark, not fast.


3.) 02 Feb 2018 12:26:14
I think our squad is generally good enough to be in the top 3 nut not good enough to win title anymore.

The only problem we have is how the issues between the board and Conte affects the players. Conte needs to learn how to handle the media which is his biggest flaw. All these constant digs etc have pretty much confirmed his commitment to us and the players. His made it ao onvious.

If only the issues were kept away from the media, fans and the players then maybe it would have been different.


4.) 02 Feb 2018 12:50:36
Well thought out process c1955 👏.

Even though Hazard is very inconsistent is that because too much is placed on his shoulders? Seems to me when he’s playing he’s the constant outlet for the back 5. And he goes “missing” for some games due to this? I do agree the Prem is the best place for him, but I’m not Hazard and nor his advisor!

Tibo - on his day he’s one of the best, cannot deny that. Cech was fantastic up until he had his injury. He changed after that. His aerial ability wasn’t as good as it use to be. I do agree about his distribution, it is poor but is that because he’s only 1 footed? His throwing i haven’t really noticed mainly because of the way we play out from the back.

Kante - I get your points but feel he’s doing 2 people’s job all the time. Fabregas’s defensive work and to an extent Bakayoko too. I’m still not 100% what Bakas role is. Kante is our own Makalele. I think Conte tried changing his passing vision when he should be just getting the ball back and laying it off. Keeping it simple.


5.) 02 Feb 2018 14:38:09
Read lots of reports about sacking Conte. I don’t think this will come about, Unless we sack him before the end of the season. I think at the end of the season he will walk.
Also read the breakdown of team by cfcadam, on the whole I agree. I would like to see Ampedo and Hudson-odoi get some game time both very exciting prospects.
I think we are just playing a watching game, as although we want some of the young players to come through. The experienced old guard close ranks and resist those changes and that is I believe where performances against Bournemouth come from.


6.) 02 Feb 2018 18:47:44
Man utd haven't got a better squad than us
Wake up Adam mate you should of been a agent for Conte or his spin doctor
He has been found out his Italia 90 style is boring predictable and dated end of
Pogba for Baka is about the only swap for like to like positions
And we won't beat Barcelona now lol.

We need a rest what for - Top 4 are playing same amount of matches as us do you hear city spurs, Liverpool, united moaning? no, you don't and there squads are lighter than ours bar city. Spurs have played the same team all year as have liverpool and there flying at minute.

We are lowest morale ever worst tactics ever and a manager who doesn't even want to be here so stop sticking up for a guy who is on his way out.


7.) 02 Feb 2018 19:21:46
in my opinion morata isn't struggling with the league he's struggling with finishing with his feet that's nothing to do with pace of league or physical side of it his finishing has just been woefully bad. as for the squad fabregas isn't good enough nor is drinkwater zapacosta pedro etc. bakayoko deserves time pogba proved at united u need time he was poor his first season an turned it around second season so he deserves time. we should replace pedro an fabregas at least with 2 top players 1 winger 1 playmaker pjanic leon bailey probably realistic targets.


8.) 02 Feb 2018 23:30:28
I think many fans have wild expectations these days. At the start of the season I felt like if we made top 4, a semifinal in a domestic cup and the quarters of the champions league, I'd call it a solid season.

Returning to champions league was always going to put a lot of strain on our relatively small squad, and we had a lot of players to move on and replace (matic/ costa/ terry etc) . People underestimate how difficult it can be to integrate new players, for every one that hits the ground running, many more need time to adjust to a new team's play style.

The only thing concerning me now is top four- I'd like a little more room over 5th place, but I feel pretty confident we can outperform at least one of pool, spurs, or manu between now and the end of the year. We're through the mayhem of the winter schedule, so I expect our injuries to clear up, which will help a lot.


 

 

30 Jan 2018 18:35:47
Ed’s are there any other under the radar transfers for Chelsea that the club may be working on? I can’t see us just bringing in Giroud and then releasing Michy. I thought AC wanted 3 strikers?

CFCAdam

1.) 30 Jan 2018 18:55:11
Maybe a few years ago.

Ed002, I know you don’t want to add anything on this page, but please can you shed any light on what’s happening at chelsea at the moment. Regarding Contes position and transfers? Please. anything. Thank you!

CFCAdam

{Ed002's Note - I am not interested in providing anything at all Adam.}


1.) 25 Jan 2018 13:52:17
Ok no worries. Just thought it was worth an ask as this page seems to be thriving at the minute and even tho we all have different opinions we aren’t reverting to it getting personal! Thanks anyway.


2.) 25 Jan 2018 14:22:09
I really hope Conte staya but it seems that he is going.


 

 

24 Jan 2018 22:37:16
My take on tonight’s game,
Cesar Moses and Alonso looked shattered.
Moses is not good enough going forward or defending.
Cesar starting to look sluggish, even passing a simple ball.
We looked good until Willian went off. Hazard looks totally confident with willian and pedro on the pitch the pitch.
Why is Alonso not taking corners and them?

Worrying for the fans? Think you speak for yourself mate. Worried? About a football club? Never, the only time I worry is if I can't pay the mortgage or put food in my kids bellies.

Its football for heavens sake, get a grip.

In spells. short spells. How many one on ones did he have throughout the season and miss? He would be another Torres. Flog him back to Juve, Milan and get someone else in.

Conte burnt his bridges with Roman and the board. That has been very clear since last summer. As much as I rate him, he’s better off out of Chelsea. With Conte, it’s his way or no way. David Luiz shouldn’t be treated like he has, dropping Rudiger (our best defender) because of his remarks shows what type of manager Conte is. Doesn’t like to be criticised and if he is, they get dropped or left out.

What’s disappointing about it? The fact the player hasn’t settled into life at Chelsea, dislikes London, misses Italy and Madrid. Spoke about returning to Madrid very soon after joining Chelsea.

Or the fact that he’s only good when playing against less physical teams? He gets knocked off the ball far too easy, jumps under a header when he could hold it up. His first touch is as good as Lukaku’s. Goes down like he’s been shot and then moans about not getting a foul and proceeds to get a fellow card.

Where’s the disappointment in that? If he wants to go, then let him. He won’t be a big loss. Not exactly world class.

Dempsey. 100% mate. This season has been his worst. Silly 5-10 yard passes going astray. Losing his man, being caught out of position at times. Lack of communication (can go for ALL the defence inc GK) . He started well with the Morata link up, but that’s all gone. A new RWB needed, Emerson needs to play more - why hasn’t he? Hazard needs to be dropped. Poor all over. Willian was crap y’day. We looked scared to have a shot outside the box. Trying to constantly walk the ball in. Moses - less said the better!

We didn’t penny pinch at all. We spent £200m on crap players. Simple really. Bakayoko - never got going, Morata - if he stays I’m sure of a better season next one. Just needs to toughen up. Rudiger - not bad.
