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.


 

 

24 Jul 2017 16:24:28
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. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ 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. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ 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.

CFCAdam

 

 

05 Jul 2017 19:39:40
Costa's gone very soon then?

CFCAdam

1.) 05 Jul 2017 21:13:11
Hopefully.


2.) 05 Jul 2017 22:41:51
Looks like chalobah too of all the squad players he looked the most useful.


3.) 05 Jul 2017 22:42:26
Why hopefully? A world class striker and you want shot of him? I'd rather have Costa on my team then against any day of the week. Be a tough ask to replace him. And what he brings. It's a shame it ended like this, but deep down I think we all knew he'd kick up some sort of fuss to go back to Madrid.


4.) 06 Jul 2017 08:49:30
I meant hopefully because with him still at the club, we are seem to be holding back on buying lukaku or a new striker. We all know he's going to leave so it's best t happens sooner rather the later.


5.) 06 Jul 2017 09:49:50
and the Main FACTOR reason . HE doesn't WANT TO BE AT CHELSEA any more!

ed002. please come back!

30 Aug 2017 17:46:44
When will our board learn? Everyone and his dog can see the areas we need filling, yet we **** around with players that are unavaliable or don't want to play for us all summer long. Yes we've bought in some quality replacements but feel that we've badly messed up yet again. especially more so now that we have the Champions League to play with also. Very disappointed again in the board. Thought we had learnt our lessons after the Jose fiasco.

CFCAdam

1.) 30 Aug 2017 18:13:08
If by 11pm tomorrow night we haven't made 2-3 signings, we have to hope and pray no one gets injured on international duty. Last year we were lucky with injuries. A few injuries will deplete our squad this season especially being back in the Champions League.

Still holding out hope for a few surprise signings on deadline day just like last year with Alonso and Luiz.

Right now though I'd seriously take Drinkwater, Rafinha and Llorente. Just to add a bit of depth to our squad.


2.) 30 Aug 2017 18:47:12
Don't know why people are disagreeing with me. It's the truth. left short in wing back roles. Striker role, midfield too.

Struggling to sign squad players and cannot shift Costa. πŸ‘πŸ‘. Well done CHELS.


3.) 30 Aug 2017 19:21:54
Adam people are entitled to disagree with other posters!
Let's wait and see what other players we have signed when the window has shut.
The latest news on Costa is that a broad agreement with AM on a fee has been agreed.


4.) 30 Aug 2017 19:21:59
People are on denial mate. The two responsible need to be sucked.


5.) 30 Aug 2017 19:24:00
I agree Bobby23 we need some depth and those 3 will do fine. I still think we going to have a cracker of a season. Go Blues!


6.) 30 Aug 2017 19:24:52
We don't always agree on our comments but CFCAdam is correct. I will take Drinkwater and Llorente as back-up but Conte made it clear what the team needed almost at season end and with one day to go we are seriously lacking when we have numerous competitions to face not least the PL and Europe and we are either going to a) pull a couple of last day strokes of magic or b) endure the "Djilobodji" syndrome all over again. The question the club needs to ask itself is why players are not desperate to join Chelsea as they are with other equally big clubs.


7.) 30 Aug 2017 19:32:16
It seems that Baba Rahman will cover LWM position. CM position is exposed if we don't sign Drinkwater or Barkley. RWM position is well covered so we need either RWM or one more CB since Azpilicueta and RΓΌdiger are both able to play RWM. Llorente would provide decent cover as a thrid striker.
P. S. Don't forget that Drinkwater was perfect partner to Kante at Leicester.


8.) 30 Aug 2017 19:53:41
Rudiger is not a wing back or sutible cover for that position, Cesar isn't the answer there either, we shouldn't settle for "that'll do" for cover, we are Chelsea and the champions,
I personally think it's laughable we haven't got players in who specialize in the rwb/ lwb roles.


9.) 30 Aug 2017 19:57:17
I suggested a few days ago that we might consider keeping Baba for season to cover the left side but I'm concerned he won't be fit for a few more months and can't defend for toffee. Up to Conte to do his magic on him!
We have already signed what appear to be three quality players plus we have the introduction of Christensen. So, the club is able to sign top players in what is now a very compatible transfer market.
I remain optimistic that the club willl sign three more players before the window shuts!


10.) 30 Aug 2017 20:12:43
Matt that's why it's called providing the cover. Moses is the first choice. Personally I believe that Kennedy can provide decent cover for Alonso as well.


11.) 30 Aug 2017 20:27:02
No matter what everyone says it has been a farcical end of the window. All talk, unrealistic targets and pulling wool over Conte's face pretending we will be signing 3 or 4 players when it was obvious we wouldn't. Dream on.


12.) 30 Aug 2017 20:41:54
I'm happy. After all, we are the Champions of England. We have a fantastic manager, at least four world class players, an owner that has put the club on the football map and Champions league football again at the bridge!
As far as I know the Chelsea board are the same people who were in charge last season when we walked away with the league. So I'm not sure how any of them deserve to be given the tin tack!


13.) 30 Aug 2017 20:46:50
Let's imagine that Conte does magic with LWM, RWM even with ST improvising with Pedro. BUT THERE'S NO WAY THAT WE CAN DEFEND THE TITLE WITHOUT ONE MORE CENTRAL MIDFIELDER! NO WAY!
We should have never sold Matic especially to bloody MU be CB before we didn't sign CM.


14.) 30 Aug 2017 21:07:30
I have to disagree with opinion that Drinkwater would be squad player.I was Bakayoko or Fabregas I would not be so confident about being starter in front of Drinkwater. Do not forget chemistry between Kante and Drinkwater in 2 men midfield at Leicester.


15.) 30 Aug 2017 21:07:40
The club told Matic he was surplus to requirements at the end of the season, hence he was training on his own or with the Kids.
The club had a fee in mind and the club that hit the fee was unfortunately Utd.
Matic was average last year and total crap the year before plus he is 29 and we got young Bakayoko to take his place!


16.) 30 Aug 2017 21:11:24
Ed002 has already confirmed that Chelsea do not see Baba in the squad this season. Whether that's changed has not I don't know. But we still don't have a out and out replacement if Alonso gets injured.

Kenedy is off to newcastle. Doubt he'll ever play for us again after the China fiasco.


17.) 30 Aug 2017 21:28:59
I agree about Kennedy Adam but Baba could be a needs must sort of player!
The Champs league first stage will be over by the time he is fit but subject to us still being in all comps I can see Baba playing a squad role for the rest of the season.
You never know if he plays well we might keep him or sell him for a higher price!
It's only me thinking out loud!


18.) 30 Aug 2017 22:03:00
Antibot don't patronize me. Playing centrebacks as wing backs isn't cover you fool its putting square pegs in round holes. 2 players for every position also creates competition for places not the comfort zone.


19.) 30 Aug 2017 22:57:39
We've signed 3 top quality players that will likely be first choices and hopefully be improvements on who they've replaced. And Christensen seems to be staying who I believe if given the chances this year will push Cahill out of the team before the season is out.
Yes we could do with a few more bodies to beef up the squad but the prices this summer have sky rocketed astronomically. Β£35m for an extremely average AOC (with one year left on his contract) when a few years ago we bought Hazard for that much.
At this point in time we have a very strong first 15 players, and most of our current targets know that they're only being bought to fill in for injuries/ league cup games. It's pretty hard to convince someone to come and sit on the bench for the whole season especially players who would be able to play week in week out at a team a tier below ours.
Last season we managed to survive with just 2 strikers in 3 competitions and Batshuayi only played a tiny amount of minutes overall. So whilst not ideal I'm sure we'd survive an extra 6 games with just two strikers. We definitely do need another CM and ideally another LWB but other than that I personally feel we're well enough covered for the season.
I honestly don't see the need for panic that other posters seem to have. Especially the desire to bring in players like Belotti, as who's going to sit on the bench then out of Belotti and Morata? And if we play two up top, then I guess Hazard, Willian and Pedro all get benched?
The same with Van Dijk: He's very similar to Luiz in style so I'd personally worry if they both played together, which means we're replacing Luiz (who had a stand out year last year) for a defender who's likely going to cost Β£70m and isn't much of an upgrade on Luiz imo. He's certainly shouldn't be replacing Azpi imo, which would leave replacing Cahill. Now I'm not necessarily Cahills biggest fan, but he was just made our captain this year and does it make any sense to name him captain and then buy a player who's going to take his place in the starting line up 9times out of 10?
AOC, he's had a fairly injury ravaged career so far and apart from the last 6-10 games last season has been completely uninspiring and inconsistent throughout his time at Arsenal to date. A lot of people have said he'll be a better attacking option to Moses but I read the other day that he has something like 15 assists and around 10 goals in roughly 130 premier league appearances for Arsenal. Hardly a great upgrade πŸ˜‚ Not to mention the fact that he's averaged around 20 games a season, so with those stats he'd end up with around 2 assists and a goal for us and that's who you're sad we've missed out on?!?


20.) 30 Aug 2017 23:17:12
The transfer market has changed probably forever. We now have clubs that are owned by countries and clubs that don't have to sell.
We can no longer boss the transfer market and while the owner, club and fans remain ambitious we all have to wake up and smell the coffee.
We have the best manager in the world and some fantastic players and I think we will win the league this season!


21.) 30 Aug 2017 23:41:20
Fuser, you are taking a lot of sense. Fantastic post.


 

 

29 Aug 2017 19:26:56
Ed002, any chance of a late window update please pal? Would be great for your insight. Thank muchly.

CFCAdam

1.) 29 Aug 2017 21:46:23
Guess we aren't as fortunate as other pages that Ed still updates especially these last few days. Doesn't matter to be honest, if you look at it this way, whoever we sign at the end of the day remains whether Ed tells us or not we just have to suck it up and wait for an official announcement from the club or maybe little info on other pages.

I know most us on here have to suffer but I guess it's our cross to bare, hopefully we find a solution to the trolls on here cause more often than not it's only our page that Ed002 refuses to help. 2 days to go, we'll survive.


2.) 29 Aug 2017 21:54:55
Couldn't agree more ELI.
Come back the Eds!


3.) 29 Aug 2017 21:55:04
In the last few days of the window an update would be pointless tbh. We know the players we have an interest in but everything is all up in the air in terms of who we'll actually get in. Anything can happen in an instant without anybody knowing which makes the last few days of the window too unpredictable. Nobody saw Luiz or Alonso coming until the last day last year.


4.) 29 Aug 2017 21:55:07
Good posts Eli. Just frustrating that's all.


5.) 29 Aug 2017 22:05:08
Exactly that LondonBlue. Just maybe a small insight into what's going on. We know we still want Sandro, but is that completely dead? Also Sanches, with Liverpool dropping out, just wondered if we were still interested? So many questions.


6.) 29 Aug 2017 22:29:59
Strangely if the Eds had been giving us their unique insight into the transfer market it might well have stopped some of the ridiculous and negative comments on the site!
If only there was a way to stop these trolls!


7.) 29 Aug 2017 23:54:03
Maybe it was the constant questions from some users. I can think of 1 or 2 myself. But that's for another day. Maybe there's just the slimmest of chances that Ed002 will rear their head and give us some info!


 

 

29 Aug 2017 08:01:44
I still think that there will be a shock signing for us before Thursday's deadline. Not sure who though.

CFCAdam

1.) 29 Aug 2017 09:02:49
I think so too- may be a big name. It's just a feeling though; May be Alex Sandro, a Real Madrid player or A. Belotti.


2.) 29 Aug 2017 13:48:50
I agree. I have felt we will pull something out of the hat and fancied it would be Sandro as it appears to be a discussion that has quietly slipped under the radar. However, if they force Asensio on us I suppose we would just have to live with it!


 

 

16 Aug 2017 23:00:48
Evening Ed002, any updates on any movement for players? I've read Cancelo is off to Inter in a swap deal with Kondogbia?

Thanks Ed.

Appreciate any input.
