So the latest reports;

Marseille are closing in on signing Giroud in January;

Valencia are looking to come to an agreement with Chelsea in terminating Batshuayi's loan agreement;

So maybe in January we sign a striker alongside a attacking right winger. Hopefully a striker that can literally relegate Morata to the bench if he continues to blow hot and cold permanently.


1.) 13 Nov 2018 21:12:30
Morata will never be what we want of a striker no matter how much you love and support him. Not hating on him mates, just my observations. The earlier the better.


2.) 16 Nov 2018 08:34:28
Morata is beginning to look and sound confident in my opinion- which is what I think he needs.


 

 

09 Oct 2018 10:09:45
So these are names being mentioned that we will be chasing for transfers in January.

Romagnoli
F. Chiesa
Rabiot

Personally with Gary Cahill most likely going, we should try ti sign Romagnoli as he could really push David Luiz. Maybe next year he becomes a fulltime fixture in the team. I can't see Christensen make it at Chelsea, his been given his chances and he hasn't taken them. His moaning about playing time now and I can't see Sarri change his plans because of his moaning.

Chiesa is a good player, but is he what we need? Will he settle in ENGLAND? A lot of Italians have failed to settle here.

Rabiot is probably an option due to contractual issues at Paris. However, he will have many suiters but does he make it in our midfield which is a tough ask?

ED1 what are your thoughts? Who do you think Chelsea should be after in January to further strengthen and mount a serious title challenge?

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't buy a defender, I would look to give Ampadu some game time if there is a gap.

I still think you should have bought Allan from Napoli, rather than Jorginho. I would still look to him.

Icardi is a complete knob, but I think he is the striker you need, in terms of on the pitch. Just not sure about his baggage, particularly Wanda! That leaves a player such as Werner as a decent option.}


1.) 09 Oct 2018 11:24:43
Thanks for your reply ed1, you mentioned Ampadu and your right he should be given game time. With him there, maybe we don't need another CB if we simply put our trust in him. However, the club always looks at it differntly.

You mentioned Allan who I have to admit is very good, But the problem you have is Napoli. Icardi is baggage, wasted talent at Inter, could have had a career at the highest level. What do you think of piatek.

{Ed001's Note - I have not seen Piatek play to be honest mate.}


2.) 09 Oct 2018 11:40:01
I'll back whatever Sarri says. Especially when it comes to buys from Italy.

Icardi isn't coming to Chelsea.


3.) 09 Oct 2018 11:52:03
Ed001, personally I think neither Icardi, nor Werner suits our style.

{Ed001's Note - nor do I but there is no one who does, those two can both play off Giroud or Morata though, as well as provide cover up front. They would replace Willian I was thinking.}


4.) 09 Oct 2018 12:47:14
Hi Ed, i see Napoli's game almost every week, I feel Allan is very good too and he's quite similar to Kante (quick, combative and closing everyone down), I get what you mean when you say, 'we should have gotten Allan instead'; but Jorginho on the other hand is like a loop that brings every one beautifully into the game, the guy just doesn't get tired of passing and distributing the ball. I would say that our central midfield is looking very good but it doesn't mean that we shouldn't take Rabiot or Allan if we can get him (cos everyone wants more) .
The team though is at that point where a little patience with players in certain positions will do the club a lot of good (at least till the end of the season) :
* Christensen and Cahill can hold till the end of the season, so maybe I don't see any need for Romagnoli in January unless maybe he becomes available and someone decides to leave.
* I want the club to bring in a very good right winger (AM) but it's looking like Pedro and Willian can hold that spot till next summer.
* A top striker is one position that we clearly need to bring in if Morata and Giroud don't start delivering the goods before January (but it's quite difficult to get a top striker in January) . So I pray Morata starts scoring very well.
* The deal that we must complete is by summer is Kovacic.


5.) 09 Oct 2018 13:01:54
Ed001, what do you think of Maximiliano Gomez? Will he be an upgrade on Morata and Giroud?

{Ed001's Note - possibly. Potentially he is, right now he isn't though.}


 

 

07 Aug 2018 17:00:48
Ed1 hope you are alright mate. Any news on Kepa? A lot of sources reporting that Chelsea will pay release clause and the player wants to sign. Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - he is the chosen replacement for Courtois I believe.}


1.) 07 Aug 2018 17:38:09
I think his fantastic.


2.) 07 Aug 2018 17:37:30
What's your thoughts on him?

{Ed001's Note - seems the best possible option left, other than maybe Oblak.}


3.) 07 Aug 2018 18:10:46
I thought they wanted Butland, didn't expect Chelsea to pay so much for gk.


4.) 07 Aug 2018 18:16:42
Surprised we left it this late though. Did we think we could convince Courtois to stay? . Considering we also could've gotten Alisson cheaper than Kepa as well. Unless he was only interested in Liverpool. Happy with Kepa though, couldn't care about the price. With Courtois going for £35-40m it isn't that bad imo.


5.) 07 Aug 2018 18:43:04
i haven't seen much of kepa been honest but id take any1 otger than flappy butland.


6.) 07 Aug 2018 18:51:31
One for the present and future. He will be excellent. Kovacic is another ideal signing, hopefully we get the option to buy at the end of the loan. All off a sudden things are looking good.


7.) 07 Aug 2018 19:10:57
I’m not complaining if we sign kepa as I don’t know anything about him but why did we not just sign alisson for less. From what I have read alisson is more experienced and suits sarri way of being able to distribute the ball well. I can only guess tito Courtois never communicated with Chelsea until after Liverpool had already signed him and maybe he club were confident he would stay. It just seems strange yet again that the club has been backed into a corner and is forced to throw money at players this late in the window. As a fan it’s exciting but these big deals should of been done weeks ago.


8.) 07 Aug 2018 21:49:11
This may seem crazy to you NWBLUE but perhaps Alisson wanted to join Liverpool, I know Real were his first option but not every player would automatically join Chelsea over Liverpool.


9.) 07 Aug 2018 22:18:21
Maybe but 9 times out of 10 money talks.


 

 

24 Jul 2018 00:17:10
Stepping aside from the transfer rumours and concentrating on what we have in Jorginho.

What a player we have signed, it's been ages since we've had a passer like him, his so quick with his passes, its almost like his telepathic with his passes and that is mainly down to his fast and footballing brain. He was the engine in the first half today, brilliant.


I can see why Sarri wants Rugani. He will play the high line better than Luiz and be high up closer to the midefielders. Our defenders dropped deep in the 2nd half. Rugani will keep Sarri's tempo going for 90 minutes as will Jorginho.


1.) 24 Jul 2018 08:25:46
CFCShak, you took the words out of my mouth mate. If Sarri wants Rugani, give him Rugani before Juventus change their mind. If Jorginho performed this well adding Rugani (who will be like another Jorginho in defence) will be something. I saw the game last night (Jorginho is something) .


2.) 24 Jul 2018 09:19:59
Christensen is elite passer, maybe he wants 2 ball players but AC had high % pass accuracy last year.


3.) 24 Jul 2018 09:25:13
The better for us.


4.) 24 Jul 2018 10:41:48
Christensen an elite passer? Really, didn’t he give the ball away last year against barcelona which they went in to score, just as an example.

Not having a pop at you Matt, but people are hooked on numbers and statistics nowadays. Really don’t know why.

These are professional players they ALL should be elite passers of the ball. I’m not talking everyone playing 40/ 50/ 60 yard balls, but simple 5/ 10 yard passes. They shouldn’t be going astray. That’s what makes Jorginho so good, he plays it simple.


5.) 24 Jul 2018 11:58:34
Anyone know where to watch the friendliest?


6.) 24 Jul 2018 12:30:24
CTV or the pub at the ground.


7.) 24 Jul 2018 13:25:48
CFCAdam I have to agree with you mate. Christensen isn't yet an elite passer just yet but he will be one in the future. He needs to battle the mental side of the game, since the Barcelona error he hasn't been the same. Personally Rugani replaces Christensen if he comes. Rudiger for me has to play.


8.) 24 Jul 2018 13:48:07
You lot do realise Rugani has yet to establish himself as a first team regular at Juve?
He has less experience that Andreas and no experience of the PL clearly and you think he's ready become a first team regular in a much tougher league?
He is a promising youngster but no more as things stand and the figures being quoted are ridiculous.
The danger is he will get priority of Andreas due to the fee and I can't see the sense of playing two kids in such a key position.
We should be targetting one top experienced CB rather than a kid and consider letting either Cahill or Luiz go.


9.) 24 Jul 2018 18:18:26
Sarri knows him better then any of us as he managed him at Empoli if I read correctly. If he wants him, then who are we to argue?


10.) 24 Jul 2018 19:22:30
Again agree Adam. Turvey, you need to question Sarri mate.


11.) 24 Jul 2018 21:05:50
Rugani is not only a good passer but also quick passer like a Jorginho in our defense . He's a defender that wins the ball very well high up the pitch with great ease. He's stronger than Christensen in the challenge (whom is easily pushed off the ball most times) . Don't get me wrong Christensen stays as he could easily become a better version of Rugani as time goes on.

If there's a chance that Rugani is like a Jorginho in defense then we must take that chance. I strongly believe that whatever makes Sarri's philosophy sink in fast- the club should do it.


12.) 24 Jul 2018 23:08:06
I would question Sarri on the basis of my comments given a chance and likewise about Higuain who is another poor choice.
Jorghino looks interesting and a good buy in terms of his age and talent.
Hopefully the club don't follow up the interest in Rugani and Higuain.


 

 

18 Jul 2018 13:18:14
Alisson closer to Liverpool now €75m, just finalising add ons and fees. Deal close (@FabrizioRomano) .

Chelsea consider Donnaruma as a potential replacement for Courtois. This will drag on, looks like Courtois will be here for a little while longer.


1.) 18 Jul 2018 16:14:57
I never actually believed we would sign alisson I reckon cech most likely now.


2.) 18 Jul 2018 18:55:47
Don't trust most of what I read online, however Ed002's comments on the Liverpool site confirm it for me. He says in a very mysterious way that over a phone call somebody told somebody else that no one will likely match the fee that is being touted about that Liverpool has offered for Alisson. So, moving on, could anyone tell me about Donnarumma in terms of his strengths and weaknesses?


3.) 18 Jul 2018 18:58:03
Only reason why i'm a little upset about this is the fact that Alisson would be great in a Sarri system. However spending €75m on a keeper who has had one good season is absurd. Way too overpriced for me. Credit to Liverpool for spending what ever it takes to improve their team but i'll happily look at other targets and spend the money elsewhere.

Rudiger - "There was a game on last night that's maybe important to us. But we failed to do our own job. If we don't win these kind of games, we don't need to look at City and Liverpool. Do we need to improve on getting three draws at home out of four? That's clear".

This man is a true leader and my captain. His passion to win is undisputed, he is critical when he needs to be and that is how it should be, dropping points hurts and that's how it should be. 3 draws out of 4 at home is a poor stat. Not good enough.

Unlike other players he speaks his heart. We should have closed out the Liverpool game and we should have beaten both Everton and West Ham but as usual very wasteful in front of goal, no excuses. Too many inconsistent performers in the squad.

At the moment that is the difference between us and Man City/ Liverpool. City have drew against Wolves which was the only negative. Liverpool have drew against City, Chelsea and Arsenal. Moral of the story the other teams are usually gobbled up.


1.) 13 Nov 2018 10:17:47
he also rolls round on the floor having sly looks at the ref when a midget squared up to his chest hahaha.


2.) 13 Nov 2018 10:50:01
The midget should not have dived.

By the way the midgets attempt at goal was the Worst attempt in history but that's what happens when you come with negative tactics, you forget the art of shooting lol.


3.) 13 Nov 2018 11:07:10
CFC shak, i agree that Man City is on another level. But come on, stop believing this rubbish Hype from pundits about Liverpool. They are no where near as good this season as everyone is raving, they got few lucky results and are not playing similarly to what they did last season.


4.) 13 Nov 2018 12:02:47
not negative to defend well against a top team mate, we had six attempts at goal away from home against an unbeaten team not exactly 11 men behind the ball parking the bus is it? and let's not get into dives, bernard went down easy but good god what was rudiger playing at hahahaha.


5.) 13 Nov 2018 19:36:35
ChelseaLRD, I hate to admit this but Liverpool look strong mate. I think VVD and Alison have improved their squad massively. Their defence which used to be wobbly is now on current form up with the best. Credit where it's due. They have drawn against top teams and are blowing away the rest. Even when they are playing poorly they manage to scrape a win which is brilliant. Man City look dangerous and I won't bother talking about them.

However, we need to improve massively. There is no excuse for us not beating West Ham and Everton. Morata is blowing hot and cold. Unless he starts scoring then it's clear we will struggle. We are too reliant on Hazard and his goals. We need other players like Willian, Pedro, Barkley to really stat chipping in with goals.

{Ed025's Note - the reason chelsea never beat everton shak is 1..everton played very well, and 2...morata is about as much use as a chocolate fire guard mate..


 

 

11 Nov 2018 16:20:46
Very dissapointed with the draw and worst yet it occurs before the international break which means we could be 4 points off the top, more suffering.

Decisive moment in the game for me was when Willian was put through on goal. He should have slipped the ball through to Morata for a guaranteed goal, however his poor decision making cost us dear there. These are moments that matter.


 

 

05 Nov 2018 23:41:43
Thanks for the kind messages guys, operation went successful. Recovery phase now. Hopefully it won't take too long before I'm pain free again.

Great result over the weekend given that it was a difficult fixture and one that we have lost more than we have won in recent times.

I'm happy for Alvaro Morata. His been showing glympses of what he can do for us recently. His a confidence player and I'm happy to see him battle the mental issues head on. His movement is so much better and more importantly his finishing his chances. His still got a long way to go but he is on 5 goals 2 behind the league's top scorers. Also Pedro is a class act in Sarri's formation. He compliments the formation, unlike Willian he is more direct and does not slow down our attacks.

Azpi is being targeted by a lot of fans lately. I can see why though, he isn't as fluid in the attacking phase, he isn't as comfortable on the ball maybe. However, he still can do a job regardless. What are your thoughts Ed1? Do you think his time is coming to an end?

{Ed001's Note - glad to know you are ok and it went well mate. Fingers crossed for a quick and full recovery.

I think you need Azpilicueta to provide balance. If he rushed forward and tried to play centre forward like Alonso does, you would leave huge gaps at the back all game. He very rarely gets caught up field, which allows the other players to just cover across when Alonso does. Also, I think he has shown signs of getting back into his game at full-back, it just takes time.}


1.) 06 Nov 2018 08:32:35
Thanks Ed1, appreciate it boss. Hopefully recover sooner than later.

I see where your coming from with Azpi, it makes complete sense. I don't know why his being targeted by some fans but it seems silly given that his been quality for so long. Of course he has to re-adjust again too.

{Ed001's Note - judging by the sites on here, fans just like to have someone to scapegoat. On the Liverpool site it was Henderson, no matter how well he played he got abuse. On Arsenal it is Ozil, no matter how much ground he covers or how many chances he creates, he is still not doing enough for some people. Seems you now have Azpilicueta as the whipping boy. To be fair though, he suffers partially because he has set such incredibly high standards in the past that he is always going to struggle to live up to them now.}


 

 

03 Nov 2018 09:49:46
Right lads I won't probably comment on any of the football on here over the weekend. Hopefully Chelsea win to keep the momentum going.

I'm due an operation today at the hospital. Anyway keep the banter going, ciao for now and see you all soon.


1.) 03 Nov 2018 12:22:58
Good luck with the operation! Hope it isn't too serious and that everything goes well!


2.) 03 Nov 2018 13:41:56
All the best mate! I hope the operation according to plan, and I wish you a speedy recovery.


3.) 04 Nov 2018 06:38:43
Good luck with the op mate hope all goes well.


4.) 04 Nov 2018 15:46:10
Good luck mate hope all goes well.


5.) 05 Nov 2018 06:46:08
Speedy recovery man. God's speed.


 

 

28 Oct 2018 14:16:59
Morata could have had a first half hatrick.


1.) 28 Oct 2018 14:22:58
His been brilliant though. We need a 2nd goal in second half as soon as possible.


2.) 28 Oct 2018 14:21:56
I would like to know why he got yellow card though?

He was literally attacked by two defenders and still was carded :D.


3.) 28 Oct 2018 15:09:34
Because the BPL has the worst referees going. Reason why none were at the world cup, absolutely shocking.


4.) 28 Oct 2018 17:08:18
I’m a big fan of Morata and today’s booking was a joke.

I also agree that the standard of refereeing in our leagues is so very poor but I also think Morata has bought some of these poor decisions upon himself with his antics early in his premiership career.

For me, along with Barkley he was our MOM today.


5.) 28 Oct 2018 18:53:27
Tom B, all team played really well today. Azpi and Kante showed the critics why they are so good.

Kante did some amazing passes, and Azpi defended well in his side.


6.) 28 Oct 2018 19:06:34
I agree ChelseaLRD, fantastic performance by the whole team.

It’s coming home lads!

Thanks Ed1. I thought the rumours sounded a bit over the top for January.

The summer is a long way away so rumours about a summer deal should be left for then. Anything could happen before the summer, currently he hardly plays, he could get injured, he could lose confidence due to playing time etc. Seems like paper nonsense blowing both January and Summer options. So if they get January wrong they can push for summer.

{Ed001's Note - well you never know, Chelsea might have seen an opportunity and Dortmund need the funds to invest in the team, but it seems unlikely. Sarri does want a right winger though. I just feel it unlikely and have not heard anything regarding them looking to sell, quite the opposite. Last I heard they were trying to push offers away to keep a team together so they can try and win the title and be competitive in Europe.}

A lot of rumours about pulisic, however they all appear to be spineless, it's the same story being recycled by most the tabloids. Why would Dortmund sell at this stage of the season? I find it hard to believe.

Ed1 do you know anything about the above?

Thanks.

{Ed001's Note - nothing about him moving in January. I know he was considering his options if Dortmund did not show that they could challenge in Europe, but they would not be happy to let him go now and I doubt he would force his way out. It would go against character for him to do that, he is not Dembele and he is very well advised. The summer would be when I expect him to move.}

His father is a joke. Non stop threats when talking to the media. His son on current form ain't good enough to start for Chelsea. Sarri has Cahill ahead of him at the moment and therefore he needs to stop sulking and knuckle down. He has so much potential but I think he won't be showing us his potential at Chelsea. It's not everyday of the week that somebody gets the chance to play for Chelsea.
