Whats peoples thoughts on the Courtois situation in the media. He came up with a story of Marina breaking a verbal agreeement which Chelsea have denied and are angry about!


1.) 04 Feb 2019 21:01:43
I think Mr Courtois might have a selective memory complex.

Mind you I wasn’t at the meetings but I would prefer to believe the club.


2.) 04 Feb 2019 21:03:29
He was paid by Chelsea under contract, if his agreement wasn’t honoured that’s not fair but to go on strike and let down fans and talk about a dream move away at every chance is not on and hope the madridista’s turn on him, plus his now talking about hazard moving over there with him, can’t stick the bloke, I do get how these questions are leading for players but don’t keep talking about our club/ players, worry about your front post and keeping those legs closed.


3.) 04 Feb 2019 21:51:41
Strange how footballers are all about contracts, contracts and "my contract says" etc and he accepts a verbal agreement! Probably lashing out because his season has come undone.


4.) 04 Feb 2019 22:02:56
He needs to focus on Real Madrid, his happiness could be short lived if he carrys on performing poorly. His too focused on Chelsea despite leaving.

Best case scenario for us here at Chelsea would be if Kepa continues to perform at a high level. Real Madrid would regret not taking Kepa when they had the chance.


5.) 05 Feb 2019 07:53:47
As a person, Courtois is taller than his sense of loyalty and talks too much. I think he should shut up and concentrate on the keeping clean sheets cos at the moment he's swallowing goals like aspirin.


6.) 05 Feb 2019 13:00:24
From what I read on courtois he didn’t even want to leave athletico. We let probably our best ever keeper in Cech go for courtois to take his place and not reach anywhere near Cech standard. He was so over hyped it’s unbelievable. Yes I agree he is a good goalkeeper but not a great goalkeeper. When the team played well and he only only had to make one or two saves he looked good but when the team had problems that’s when his true ability was there for all to see. I will use David de gea as an example, Utd playing bad yet David de gea is keeping them in games and earning his team upto 20 points a season over the past few years. Courtois doesn’t have the mentality to be a world beater and I’m glad he’s gone.


7.) 05 Feb 2019 14:23:41
U didn't add that he's very slow in reacting with his legs, I am guessing that cos of his height, it takes a very long time for information to go from his Central Nervous System (Brain and Spinal cord) to his effectors (hence poor reaction with his legs) .


8.) 05 Feb 2019 14:35:14
NWBLUE you have hit the nail on the head with the comparison to De Gea. Look no further than what De Gea did against Spurs and Arsenal. Countless saves. When the team played badly so did Courtois.


9.) 05 Feb 2019 18:55:28
four words "he is a clown! "


10.) 05 Feb 2019 22:22:18
Kepa every time.


11.) 05 Feb 2019 23:34:20
Agree Nibby. Kepa all day long for me too. Courtois was a bad bad mistake. He should never have replaced Cech.


 

 

23 Jan 2019 18:48:33
Looks like PSG have taken a march on us and are on the verge of signing Parades, a player we wanted but maybe had 2nd thoughts on.


1.) 23 Jan 2019 19:02:34
who cares i never even heard of him at a cost of 40 million. go and spend 80 or 90 and actually buy a top class player and make a statement not some average joe soap from the russian league. golovin or golokvin wat ever his name was apparently was d star of the league an he's strugglin big time at monaco aren't we glad we signed him.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe the issue is your lack of knowledge?}


2.) 23 Jan 2019 19:17:03
maybe either way wel still survive without him.


3.) 23 Jan 2019 20:03:52
he could still sign for us magic mate then you have shot yourself in the foot mate haha keep the faith.


4.) 23 Jan 2019 20:27:26
Survival is one thing, but we should want to flourish! To make top 4 we need strengthening this window beyond Higuain. Fact that PSG want to hijack (perhaps already have hijacked) CFC attempt at deal for Parades suggests to me that he's someone who has been scouted by a number of top teams and might have been just want we needed in terms of improving our midfield and offering competition/ alternative to Jorginho.


5.) 23 Jan 2019 20:29:00
Parades is a good player magic. There is no need to say anything else otherwise. His done well at Roma and Zenit. We have scouted him for a while.


6.) 23 Jan 2019 20:45:23
just saying in general i don't no who he is so not bothered either way im sure if he signs for a big club he must he decent but wel survive with or without him and if its with i hope he's a good player.


7.) 23 Jan 2019 21:30:29
If Barcelona paid £75m for De Jong, I think Chelsea might have to pay top money if the club wants Leandro Parades, there's no way around this one besides there's no arguing that Leandro Parades is a good player (that is if the club wants him and if PSG haven't taken the player? ) .


8.) 23 Jan 2019 21:45:25
I thought PSG had dropped out and now going for Allan of Napoli?


9.) 24 Jan 2019 00:27:46
PSG have financial constraints, given that it’s reported that Allan is valued at around £80m according to some newspapers, it doesn’t seem likely.


10.) 24 Jan 2019 01:53:36
ed donwe have another midfielder in mind if paredes goes PSG?

{Ed002's Note - I am not interested.}


 

 

21 Jan 2019 20:31:49
All three domino deals will become official tomorrow! #Higuain #Morata #Piatek.

Im excited with the arrival of Higuain. I really hope we sign Parades too. These two players are loyal servants of Sarri who have played under him at Napoli and Empoli respectively.

Sarri needs more loyalty on the pitch from his players. I suspect we have bad eggs in the team and these transfers will go along way in eradicating the issue. They should be able to promote his tactics and hopefully it rubs off on the others too. Something needs to change for the good of the club though.

Its no coincidence Sarri's predecessors suffered from player power too which led to their downfall.

But with new signings i think we will be fine. I am glad the club are backing sarri and making the requested transfers. I don't think the others in the squad will demotivate big players. I don't agree with Sarri there his obviously frustrated.

Any guess at the bad eggs in the team guys?


1.) 21 Jan 2019 20:59:51
I think Willian and Alonso definitely. Hazard and Luiz maybe. Rüdiger, Azpi, Kanté and Pedro all seem proper professionals in my eyes but could be wrong. Kepa has a very good attitude also he’s like a breath of fresh air compared to Courtois.


2.) 21 Jan 2019 21:07:35
As I’ve said in a previous post, we have now had three managers saying similar things, maybe its best to look at the players who have played under those three managers!

This is only a theory!


3.) 22 Jan 2019 00:14:53
He's been a great player for us, but all three times, this "player power" appears when Hazard gets frustrated. JM values result over his fitness and demands defensive work, Conte plays him false 9, Sarri plays him false 9.

I'm not suggesting, if player power exists here, that it's only him, but it could be a very good place to start.


4.) 22 Jan 2019 07:53:15
I have to agree with the suggestions, Hazard, Willian and Alonso seem to be the ones for me. Courtois was a major player in this all in the past.

I love Hazard for what he does on the pitch but my patience with him is running so thin when he speaks to the press. let's be honest, his been at the club for the past 6-7 years and you would expect professionalism when he opens his mouth but his calling out Madrid each time indirectly. He needs to be patient and stop talking and let nature take its course. If Madrid want him then they will have him for the right price. Its simple.

Personally, Hazard has been great for us and the premier league but if he leaves at the end of the season then that isn't the end of Chelsea. It will be a blow of course. However, the club is bigger than each individual and it will give the platform for other younger players to shine. Plus it would mean the end of another era. The board have tried and continue to do so with him but they have been good in all of this so credit where uts due. If he doesn't want to sign a new contract then we should look to move on quickly though and look for his replacement.


5.) 22 Jan 2019 08:31:16
I’m not sure it is in any way relevant but I think there are four players who have been at Chelsea with the last three managers. Willian, Pedro, Azpilicueta and Hazard.


6.) 22 Jan 2019 10:22:28
I can't imagine Azpi not playing well for any manager. He's too professional and constant.


7.) 22 Jan 2019 12:59:16
Totally agree re player power. It’s important we back the right manager to deal with this. Hopefully Sarri is the man. If not we’re buggared 😅.


 

 

19 jan 2019 21:57:05
Have faith guys. We will turn this around. Need a good transfer window now. It is very important.

Its clear the players ain't playing to Sarri's philosophy yet. He was shouting at them to press but obviously they weren't doing it.

Stay positive.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 23:21:27
He needs to find a way to add some spine into the team. Without RLC, I don't know where that comes from? Barkley instead of Kovacic? CHO instead of Pedro / Willian? Ampadu in midfield?

At the moment, the only two players with some Welly are Luiz and Rudi. Even Hazard just looks frustrated, but he's not yelling at team mates and leading.

Hopefully Higuain can help the cause, even if it's just his experience and winner's mentality.


2.) 20 Jan 2019 00:09:16
Press what to Kepa we only go in reverse slow boring football don’t think Sarri knows what to do been the same tempo slow football for weeks.


3.) 20 Jan 2019 06:56:08
Thank goodness, besides Sarri being so predictable, Sarri himself has started seeing that the players are difficult to motivate (which is his fault- not the players) . If I may ask why will the players go out of their skin to play when they know Sarri will stick with them even when they aren't putting in good performances- my point is Alonso will keep playing like rubbish cos Sarri will never start Emerson; Jorginho feels he doesn't have a replacement and clearly has no room for improvement; Willian knows he will definitely start no matter of how bad he plays (meanwhile there's a Hudson Odoi that could be more productive in some days) . Sarri's way of sticking with one player forever even when their back-ups are doing better makes no sense. There's no competition in the team.


4.) 20 Jan 2019 08:31:50
It will all change guys, patience needed even though its gone and wearing thin with many on here. Sarri is obviously frustrated and so are many fans are too.

However, new additions will help the spine of the team because these are all sarri's requests. The board are backing the manager which is great.

I think its fair to criticise the manager with his team selection and late substitutions yestersay but wanting him out so soon is overkill. He needs a proper chance with new signings. If he wanted the team to play like they did yesterday then he doesn't get so angry after the match. Even duting the match he was exploding at our players not pressing.

The players we have are very hard to motivate and i do agree with him here. Afterall these players have a tendency perform when they want. Look at our stats, we finish 1st, then 10th, then 1st, then 5th and now 4th after starting so brilliantly. Same core of players who are aging too. Also remember we don't have a proper striker.

Yes i agree i with frustrations of CHO and Emerson not playing but obviously Sarri doesn't seem to trust them. RLC is being missed so much.

Sarri is a quality manager, he has proven that at Napoli. I have faith that with new addtions we will see the Chelsea that we all want to, attcaking and fluid. However, if we don't after sometime and a fair chance then yes its fair to want a change. But calling for sack now is silly, we are known as the club who don't back their manager and that stigma must go if we are to fix the mentalities of the players.


5.) 20 Jan 2019 11:55:25
CFCShak, I really do respect your opinion a a lot but Sarri is so stubborn, stereotyped and predictable; these are undesirable and unproductive traits in the EPL. The is the league that doesn't give gifts, the league where the best managers are reduced to nothing. At the moment all we can do is pray cos one can't bank on Higuain.
Besides all the Sarri talk, the Chelsea board should strengthened themselves to spend big cos a lot of our players are past their good days esp if the club wants to win laurels.


6.) 20 Jan 2019 22:33:03
If sarris sticks with 1 player for every position how do you the others are playing better makes no sense.


7.) 21 Jan 2019 08:01:31
ADL said same thing about Sarri- not wanting to rotate and sticking with one player for one position (ignoring backups), and I think he was right. I feel it wouldn't have been much of a problem if Sarri is sticking with an exceptional group of players that are young like in Liverpool or Mancity. My point is what will our fate (future) be like as Pedro and Willian (who are in their 30s) are the ones Sarri's decided to stick with, then think of how good they will be next season in a fast league like the EPL as their age increases? Now imagine how good Mancity or liverpool's core players like Sane, Sterling, Salah (in their early 20s) etc will be next season as they grow into their prime- This is part of the reason why the club needs to start thinking of spending on younger exceptional players (or start giving players like Hudson Odoi and Ampadu a big chance to play) . At this rate, I pray it doesn't take us another 3 years before we win the league again.


 

 

09 Jan 2019 20:32:25
Just continuing a previous discussion that some posters were having about our options for signing a striker.

Anyway 50m for Wilson?!? Surely we aren't looking to pay that sort of money for a striker that we will most likely replace in the summer and also given his dodgy knees its a massive risk for an investment. If we do make that alleged offer then that would indicate that the board also feel that they are in a desperate position in terms of strikers otherwise they would never consider such offers. Bournemouth would be silly to reject a 50m offer.

Higuain would have been ideal on a short term basis, however it's very complicated. Milan are paying 16m for the loan and then have to buy for 32m obligatory. Of course Juventus would want a similar deal with us which includes an obligation to buy otherwise they lose out. They would be mad not to accept 48m in total from Milan who have agreed to the condition and instead give us a short term loan and then have Higuain back in their books come the summer. For a starter no one would spend 48m or close to that fee for a 31 year old unless China come calling. This one is very complicated and probably won't happen despite the player and Sarri being desperate to work with each other. Maybe if Milan allowed Higuain to leave on a short term basis and Chelsea agreeing to pay half the loan fee then maybe it works. But obviously I think Milan don't want to buy Higuain outright in the summer.

Vardy won't happen, very unlikely.

Given the fees that are being thrown about for the linked strikers, maybe we should just trigger Icardi's release clause.

Obviously easier said than done. It makes more sense to me to pay close to 90m and buy a striker which covers you a very long time who is prolific than say pay Wilson (50m) and then another maybe another striker for 40-50m in the summer.


1.) 09 Jan 2019 21:00:56
Ed2 your the guru when it comes to transfers, any chance of a teaser?

{Ed002's Note - It would be cruel to suggest Icardi might get a League Cup medal this year.}


2.) 09 Jan 2019 21:15:05
Lol Ed2. Just being wishful. His probably Madrid bound.


3.) 09 Jan 2019 22:09:32
Probably at man city.


4.) 10 Jan 2019 01:01:57
Oh were we knocked out of Europa?


5.) 10 Jan 2019 08:11:48
Lol ed, can we get more teasers in the future 😂.


6.) 09 Jan 2019 22:41:46
What about a league cup medal next season Ed002 ;)


7.) 10 Jan 2019 11:38:12
i agree go all out buy icardi. don't see wilson or higuian as the answer icardi could be our aguero. who ever we get il support the decision and player and hope they succeed as i always do.


8.) 10 Jan 2019 11:49:52
Pat Nevin suggesting that a lot of the names being mentioned are very likely to be a cover for our real targets.
He thinks we are more likely to be looking at Piatek at Genoa, but then so are Madrid apparently.
Hes the right age profile but always a risk signing a young player from another league obviously as we have discovered with Batman.


9.) 10 Jan 2019 17:14:13
Ed002- Surely you don't think Burton can turn it around!?!

Perfect away performance to win at Kiev. Kudos to Sarri for the way Hudson Odoi is developing. Before the season, he was on the fringes of the first team football (I. e similar to Ampadu) and now he is firmly established. Only an 18 year old and is pretty much nailed on first team player.


1.) 14 Mar 2019 20:45:37
And RLC mate thought he was brilliant today.


2.) 14 Mar 2019 21:08:29
He’s so similar to Mbappe for me it’s unreal. Obviously not as far along yet but his pace and running in behind is brilliant. It’s been years since we’ve had a natural winger. If Hazard leaves he needs to play on the left. Him and Ruben are going to develop and cause havoc together.


3.) 14 Mar 2019 21:59:33
RLC is my main man at Chelsea. He will be be one of the best players in the world very soon. I'm glad Sarri can see it now, he gave him really good praise saying he could be one of the best in Europe. The guy is just immense.


4.) 15 Mar 2019 00:27:25
He has all the tools for it. I’m just hoping his back stays well enough for us to see it.


5.) 15 Mar 2019 06:53:13
I think the fact that Sarri is using Odoi so much is the media and Germany with there transfer pressure. If it wasnt for that i don't he would have Maybe the club doesn't want to lose him now and told Sarri to use him more. I do like him as a player but he needs to keep on playing the way that he is to develop.


 

 

14 Mar 2019 13:32:24
Right some great stats on Jorginho on Skysports. Not surprised to see his 'expected assist' total only bettered by Hazard and Willian. Better than KDB and Mane etc.

As I said so many times our attackers have let him down. Had they finished half his assists than he doesn't get slated by his own fans.


1.) 14 Mar 2019 14:57:20
Passing it to hazard side ways at the half way line then hazard taking 6 on and missing shouldn’t be put down as an assist.


2.) 14 Mar 2019 15:12:00
‘Expected assist’ what is that? I Iike Jorginho and he’s been better recently.


3.) 14 Mar 2019 15:39:13
Nibby your comment is childish. Watch Chelsea games before you make comments.

Expected assist as in an assist was provided but the finishing wasn't done. Have a look at the skysports article.


4.) 14 Mar 2019 16:40:28
* chance creation.


5.) 14 Mar 2019 17:10:04
For me Jorginho is a very good player.


6.) 14 Mar 2019 20:07:29
Banter just banter.


7.) 14 Mar 2019 23:28:38
Okay Shak fair enough. I still think he hasn’t had a great season but like I said he’s improving. Does need to work on his final ball however.


8.) 15 Mar 2019 13:31:03
CFCShak, once again you accuse other posters of not watching the game as you have with me. I am a season ticket holder. You can see far more of the game at the game rather than from the comfort of an armchair - you can see movement or lack of it (Jorginho) ; pace or lack of it (Jorginho) ; defensive competence or lack of it (Jorginho) . Try going to a game before criticising others.


 

 

10 Mar 2019 23:10:19
A draw was the minimum we deserved. What a resilent defensive performance by Wolves. 11 men behind the ball, blocking everything. Tough tough game. Great subs by Sarri. 1 point is better than nothing.


 

 

09 Mar 2019 09:38:26
It appears we have turned the corner as the team is once again playing great football, creating numerous chances in games and being able to break down defensive units. Defensively solid too. More than enough rotation of the team which is great to see. During this busy fixture period we have rested a few key players and we have still won. Dynamo Kiev is a strong team but they way we dismantled them sad pleasing.

Well done to Sarri. Confidence installed.


1.) 09 Mar 2019 10:21:07
If CAS don't freeze the transfer ban until the appeal is heard then that would be bad of course but it will not be the end of the world.

I'm sure they will make a fair decision based on the evidence avaialble to hand. If the evidence is damning and if they know an appeal is likely to fail 100% then I can see the reasons behind not freezing the ban until the appeal takes place. It is almost playing the system to sign a load of players to compensate for when the ban is enforced. For Fifa to deny the freezing of the ban says to me that they have damning evidence against us which is a shame if its true. But obviously the evidence must be damning enough to warrant banning of two windows. If that is reduced at appeal then the decision to deny freeze is unfair.

Obviously the Spanish clubs had their bans frozen until the appeal but maybe their situation was different. Maybe the evidence to hand wasn't as strong as here. We can't compare the cases until we know more about what we have done here. Either way if we have breached massively then we have to pay For it.

If the same scenario occured to Man City or any other rival club and if they were appealing to freeze the ban so that they could mass recruit players then I would be against it. Obviously the evidence to hand must be 100% damning so that the decision to ban two windows is not overturned even at appeal stage.

Either way it's a shame

What are your thoughts Ed.

{Ed001's Note - as I mentioned in the news review, it is unjust and totally against the rule of law as it stands in Europe. Chelsea have a right to be considered innocent, no matter how damning the evidence, until after they have exhausted all avenues of appeal. FIFA are setting themselves up for a big fall. You may be against it if it was anyone else, but you would be talking from bias, which is what must be set aside in a legal case. The punishment should only be enacted at the end of the trial and any appeals process.}


2.) 09 Mar 2019 11:38:57
Hopefully CAS see it the same way and freeze the ban until appeal. It seems like Fifa want to put a point across but are being very blunt about it. Thanks for replying and putting some sense to it mate.

{Ed001's Note - there should not be any point to put across. If the punishment can be worked around, then they need to take a look at them, not act like judge, jury and executioner.}


3.) 09 Mar 2019 17:59:40
100% Ed001. Funny how quickly FIFA have been with this decision, but still not finished investigating the Qatar World Cup- 5 years after the investigation started!

{Ed001's Note - they are two totally different things to be fair and they have also punished the FA, which suggests there is much more to this. The World Cup will not be allowed to be questioned until afterwards, there is too much money at stake.}


4.) 09 Mar 2019 20:52:37
You can’t even appeal to CAS until after this appeal is finalised by which time the summer transfer window may already be closed. I’m surprised they have tried to change how they deal with this kind of thing after a president has been set.


5.) 09 Mar 2019 18:18:07
Fair enough Ed001. Would love an article on your views on Qatar 2022.

{Ed001's Note - I have added it to the to do list, I will have to try and remember to move it up the list a bit or I will only get round to it in about 2025 with the length of the list!}


 

 

06 Mar 2019 22:40:06
Jose Mourinho is apparently 100% certain to manage Real Madrid next season. It looks like another former club of his who is in a dire state has made the SOS call. For his career it will be the right move. let's be honest, he won't win another premier league with his tactics, it will be extremely difficult but he has a huge chance to continue winning in an easier Spanish league.

Hazard obviously had a bit of falling out with Jose regardless of what they both say now. I think Hazard will push for the move but does he really want to play under Jose again?

Who cares shak mate build the team around kante by far and away our best player.

Lol Mrs Costa your intelligence is beyond belief haha. You must have direct sources within the board room to have come out with that level of garbage. If that was to be the case then the board would just manage the playing squad.

Give the manager credit, the tactics he employed yesterday worked when we won 2-0 earlier on in the season. So he simply reverted back to them. It's not rocket science.

Turvey I'm sorry to say but unfortunately being an instant success fan won't be beneficial for you at this time. Success won't happen anytime soon. Its clear that we need massive investment and also one that a DOF should oversee.

Anyway you need to think about the future direction of the club. Today's papers are linking us to Zidane. Obviously its rumours but if anthing like that did happen then I will officially say that our board are lost, you can't plan a massive style change and give it a few months only and expect to be the finished article! You can't keep chopping and changing managers and crave Klopp's style of football, Pep's style of football and Poch's style of football. It took years of sweat and determination and massive investment for others to get the success. Zidane goes against the whole saga of appointing Sarri in the first place, different managers.

Anyway I am confident that the board will do the right thing. I am more confident that the team will overcome come this and turn it around. 6-0 is a massive wakeup for Sarri.

Pep Guardiola had a difficult first season at Man City. He got criticism from all directions. Anyhow, rather than wielding the axe the Man City board backed the manager and overhauled the squad and got him a new gk, new defence and other additions. We know what pep acheieved the following season. Man City is being run brilliantly since the massive spending spree.

Now rather than backing the players and sacking the manager, the board need to make the right decision here. As fans we are all are getting bored and frustrated with the same situation occuring over and over again. The players ain't good enough and a few are aging, in general they are very inconsistent. We have finished 1st, 10th, 1st and 5th in the last 4 seasons which sums up the inconsistency.

It is obvious the manager needs to be backed here. A new manager will bring a new lease of life temporarily, however how long before it happens to the new manager? History says maybe 2 year before the cycle restarts?

I'm not saying Sarri is a blessing from god as he has faults. He needs to learn quick and fast. He needs to give younger players a chance, he needs to be brave and make decisions like dropping Alonso, Willian etc when they underperform and give CHO, RLC, AC and Emerson more of a chance. Obviously he needs to be less predictable with his substitutions etc and be proactive and look to change the team shape during matches when we are struggling.

Sarri still has my backing!

Wheely get a poch and sack him within a year like we normally do?

Poch isn't stupid enough to leave Spurs and come to Chelsea. We can pay him whatever money he wants and he still won't come to a club where 3 or 4 bad results in a row means fans like you and there are plenty like you get on his back for him to get sacked.

Just to let you know poch struggled massively at spurs at the start, he hasn't won anything yet. Im sure you would call for his head to be sacked with those stats. Same with Klopp and same with Pep. No doubt they are all class managers. However, at chelsea i think all 3 would have been sacked because they would have all failed in their 1st season and instant success winning fans would want them sacked.

I feel the same vs West Ham and all the other teams that fall in the same bracket. We simply can't finish teams off and we are desperately prone to any sort of counter attack. Every loss has been so predictable. Also why does conceding 1 goal break the back? What's happened to the fight?

I agree the current team simply cannot adjust to his tactics. As a manager he should be more inventive and change things and the fact that he doesn't will cost him his job in the end. Same old story every weekend.

I'm bang in the middle with Sarri. I know there are a lot of people that want him out and some that want him in. However, his stubbornness is slowly killing me as a fan. His substitutions beg to differ.

Out ticket to success this season is the Europa League. We just have to hope that we don't fact Napoli or Arsenal somehow.

RLC is my main man at Chelsea. He will be be one of the best players in the world very soon. I'm glad Sarri can see it now, he gave him really good praise saying he could be one of the best in Europe. The guy is just immense.

Nibby your comment is childish. Watch Chelsea games before you make comments.

Expected assist as in an assist was provided but the finishing wasn't done. Have a look at the skysports article.

Hopefully CAS see it the same way and freeze the ban until appeal. It seems like Fifa want to put a point across but are being very blunt about it. Thanks for replying and putting some sense to it mate.

{Ed001's Note - there should not be any point to put across. If the punishment can be worked around, then they need to take a look at them, not act like judge, jury and executioner.}

If CAS don't freeze the transfer ban until the appeal is heard then that would be bad of course but it will not be the end of the world.

I'm sure they will make a fair decision based on the evidence avaialble to hand. If the evidence is damning and if they know an appeal is likely to fail 100% then I can see the reasons behind not freezing the ban until the appeal takes place. It is almost playing the system to sign a load of players to compensate for when the ban is enforced. For Fifa to deny the freezing of the ban says to me that they have damning evidence against us which is a shame if its true. But obviously the evidence must be damning enough to warrant banning of two windows. If that is reduced at appeal then the decision to deny freeze is unfair.

Obviously the Spanish clubs had their bans frozen until the appeal but maybe their situation was different. Maybe the evidence to hand wasn't as strong as here. We can't compare the cases until we know more about what we have done here. Either way if we have breached massively then we have to pay For it.

If the same scenario occured to Man City or any other rival club and if they were appealing to freeze the ban so that they could mass recruit players then I would be against it. Obviously the evidence to hand must be 100% damning so that the decision to ban two windows is not overturned even at appeal stage.

Either way it's a shame

What are your thoughts Ed.

{Ed001's Note - as I mentioned in the news review, it is unjust and totally against the rule of law as it stands in Europe. Chelsea have a right to be considered innocent, no matter how damning the evidence, until after they have exhausted all avenues of appeal. FIFA are setting themselves up for a big fall. You may be against it if it was anyone else, but you would be talking from bias, which is what must be set aside in a legal case. The punishment should only be enacted at the end of the trial and any appeals process.}
