The balance of us being successful next season is a very fine margin, there is a lot of uncertainty around our club, with the manager and a few key players, it could really affect us next season if conte leaves or plays down his last year, same if courtois leaves or don't sign, and hazard also, but there is a massive boost, feel good factor if we sorted hazard and courtois's contract, as well as conte signing an extension, and get the transfers done early, get zouma, Rlc, Abraham all back for squad depth, and 2/3 world class players, it will be a massive buz if the players and manager signed, im not sure on conte i think if the board back him to the hilt so he is on level field with city i think he will stay fingers crossed.

I wouldn't mind a swap between Courtois and Oblak. Hazard will stay for next season even if he doesn't extend his contract. Conte? It seems to depend on how well his family settles (which is fair enough) . Not sure about taking Zouma back.


2.) 22 Dec 2017 16:06:11
I can consider Oblak + Griezmann (or Saul Niguez) and Β£30m for Courtois.


3.) 22 Dec 2017 17:30:41
I believe Courtois will go, due to his family in Spain. I think Hazard May go, it’s been muted for 2-3 years I think this is his last year. If we sell then it is what we do with 150 plus million. If spent well then we move on. You have to remember every time someone has left and they say we are finished we bounce back and win the league.
Remember Trust in Roman.


4.) 22 Dec 2017 19:44:12
I'd ve very suprised if both were to go during the summer but could see one of them going. I'd be more happy to see Courtois go than Hazard and this may be an unpopular opinion to a lot of fans but as good as Courtois is, for me he hasn't improved a lot since his Athletico days. The only thing i can see keeping Hazard here is the price tag we'll HOPEFULLY put on him. In this market he's worth Β£160+ million easily and Real Madrid may find it hard to pay it up. And as Andrew said we'll bounce back, the player is never bigger than the club so if they don't want to be here i trust the board will do the right thing.


5.) 23 Dec 2017 10:05:02
I think us selling Hazard unless he made it clear he wanted out would be Chelsea as a club showing they're no longer interested in being the best. He is a genuine superstar and probably the reason behind so many younger fans choosing to support chelsea, he's one of the most entertaining footballers I've had the pleasure of watching live and seems like a really decent person. Courtois on the other hand has been good for us but wouldn't say anything special, if he doesn't want to be here I would get rid of him because there are plenty of good goalkeepers around. Ideally we'd keep both though as they are definitely 2 of our most important players.

just read and seen photos that both conte and morata are in sardinia at the same time staying 2 miles apart from each other on there summer holidays, looks like they should talk to each other and get a deal done.

Cat

1.) 07 Jul 2017 18:29:12
Sky new claimed he's fuming chelsea didn't get lukaku.


2.) 07 Jul 2017 19:33:04
Morata is not coming to Chelsea, he will stay at Madrid most probably. Even Bakayoko transfer might not happen as well.


3.) 07 Jul 2017 20:54:23
Antibot don't be silly.


4.) 07 Jul 2017 23:41:39
the pics are suppose to be the past 48 hours and it shows conte on the beach with his family, playing football on a 5 aside pitch, he looks like a typical happy guy on holidays with his family and friends, he doesn't look fuming that's for sure,


5.) 07 Jul 2017 23:46:02
Alvaro Morata is Mourinho bound player. Mourinho was the first manager who gave a chance to Morata. The player moved to Juventus during Ancheloti spell at Madrid.
There is nothing silly. There is also quite possible that he will stay at Madrid.


6.) 08 Jul 2017 07:46:10
Very good inteligent striker id play him over bemzema all day long. for the money he's been throwing around at to clubs no 1 will buy him der pricing him out of a move because they need cash for mbappe madrid are not the power house they once were by looks of it united seem to be the king pins now when it comes to money.


 

 

06 Jun 2017 18:09:27
eds is it a case of Bakyoko or tolisso? or will we try and sign both players? cheers.

Cat

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any formal offer but Tolisso is an alternative to Bakayoko - in the same way Kessie was.}


 

 

10 May 2017 14:39:08
Any eds, last January window we was severely linked to celtic dembelle, do you think we will go back in for him in the summer window?, it seems to me that we will buy more than 1 striker this summer, as Costa seems almost certain to leave, and rumours Batshuyai will leave also, am I right in thinking it will be morata or lukaku plus 1 more?

Cat

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea made an acceptable offer for the player in January but he wants guaranteed playing time and Chelsea would not give it - as such he turned down the offer. The interest remains but Chelsea will not give in to his demands so he would need to adapt accordingly.}


1.) 10 May 2017 14:52:27
Demanding playing time is ridiculous. you get a chance and you grab it with both hands!


2.) 10 May 2017 16:42:37
Well he stay at Celtic for the rest of his career then.

{Ed002's Note - He has to change his standpoint - and, for information, some clubs are happy to give commitments.}


3.) 10 May 2017 17:43:52
I got no problem with players asking for playing time assurances, he's prob looked at Costa playing almost every minute of every game and michy who hasn't really got a look in, in alll fairness we have been winning 4-0 against Utd at home with 20 minutes left and still Costa plays, it's happend alll season Costa has been dreadful since Christmas up until a few games ago, his touch was poor he couldn't pass his shooting was off he was dreadful and still no michy, we recently played Middlesbrough at home 2nd bottom in the league 2-0 up at half time and again no michy, so I can see why he would want playing demands it could of been in the case that if Costa don't score for 7 matches and plays bad, can he at least have a run of 3-5 matches to prove himself, football isn't always black and white.


 

 

14 Apr 2017 10:07:11
Apparently moratas girlfriend Alice Campello, has bought a house in London, a couple of days after morata was interviewed saying sooner or later he will play for conte and he expects his next move will be to the premiership, is this a full drawn conclusion? Or just paper crap?

Cat

1.) 14 Apr 2017 14:27:46
Probably paper rubbish as usual.

who doubted morata?, so far in the league, 2 goals, 2 assists, off side goal, i have no doubt that he will be an upgrade on costa over a full season, he may not push and foul people but he will out score out assist and link up better than costa.

Cat

1.) 27 Aug 2017 18:11:01
Ummmm, hope you're right - shouldn't judge him until he's played a few games with Eden.


2.) 27 Aug 2017 19:17:54
Morata started very well but to have realistic opinion it will take at least the whole season. Fingers crossed that he will become what we are expecting.


3.) 27 Aug 2017 20:02:36
I have really enjoyed watchin Morata play so far this season. He seems to glide about the pitch effortlessly. Great hold up play and his ability to bring others into play has been quality. His movement on and off the ball has been something we have been missing for a while as well his areal presence ( something we have lacked since Drogba) . Costa was a great goalscorer but I think in Morata we have the full package, 2 goals and 2 assists in his first 3 games speaks volumes to how well he has done so far. Can't wait to see him linking up with Hazard. Exciting times ahead!


4.) 28 Aug 2017 06:44:20
Is it just me or have we all got used to seeing Diego Costa . yesterday Williams was bashing Morata, no doubt Morata given his superior movement.


5.) 28 Aug 2017 14:59:37
i don't get the costa is a better goal scorer comments i may be wrong but over the last 3 seasons costa scored 20 league goals in his first season,12 in his second, and 20 last season, and 2 goals in 2 seasons of champions league, to me that's just ok not great, in a time when all the top strikers in the world are scoring between 30-50 goals, and costa at nearly 29 years old has had 3 20 goal a season, seasons, morata at 21 years old played and scored in a champions league final, and if you compared both players only up until the age of 24 then morata is much much better, in terms of the teams played for, morata- juventus, real madrid, chelsea, spain, and the goals, finals played, i have no doubt that morata can and will out score costa, in the same amount of games and will take our attack to the next level, with his link up and movement, and he has room for improvement over the next 5-7 seasons to become 1 of if not the best striker in the world, similar to lewandowski.


 

 

08 Jul 2017 10:32:55
if you watched lukaku last season and you watched chelsea you could clearly see he's all wrong for us, he scored 26 goals for everton last season and 6 of them were from crosses, as it happens chelsea last season crossed the ball into the box the least in the league, he played on the shoulder of the last man last season, when costa would drop deep and play with hazard and co.

he would also press from the front, and when he dropped deep hazard and pedro would run in behind it worked perfect for us, if we sign lukaku our whole game would change, we don't suit him and he don't suit us, regardless of if we all rate him or not, its a bad choice, morata is similar to costa in his pressing, running the channels and dropping, so our title winning system would be the same, if you didn't watch a lot of chelsea or lukaku last season then i wouldn't expect you to know this, costa scored 22 goals for chelsea last season in all comps 20 in the league, morata scored 20 in all comps in half the playing time how many would he score playing 45 full matches.

Cat

1.) 08 Jul 2017 11:52:18
But you expect the opposition not to have figures that out and now change tactics to play against us? Constantly changing tactics leaves the opposition always guessing. Could always mix it up. Could have been Lukaku up top on his own, or play him alongside Batschuayi. With whoever comes in they have to adjust to the speed and physicality of the premiership. Not an easy thing to do. Didier was a master at it. Big strong striker, Costa the same. Morata isn't, neither is Belotti, so out formation would have to change regardless of who comes in!


2.) 08 Jul 2017 13:39:50
Lukaku is a better striker than Morata for sure.
But Morata is better all round player than Lukaku.
If Morata joins Hazard and Pedro will benefit more.


3.) 08 Jul 2017 14:15:17
adam, when we had drogba, we played with more traditional wingers who would put more balls into the box, we gave lampard a free role basically to arive in the box to link with drogba become the second striker at times, our team now years after drogba lampard ect, is much different we play with 2 number 10s hazard and pedro/ willian that's why we don't cross much we are always trying to play through teams defence, with our full backs giving width.

this was a polar opposite to years ago as our full backs wasn't allowed to attack in them days, 2 very different teams and styles, instead of changing 10 other players to adjust to the new strikers style who can't link up. who plays on the shoulder so will restrict hazard and co going in behind him, so makes all the sense in the world to get a like for like aka morata he drops deep, presses, runs the channels and can link the play very very similar to costa.

Anyone wanting lukaku even if they rate him as the best striker just isn't a fit for us. im very happy we won't sign lukrapu, it may have just won us the league again as we will now bring in a better suited striker.


4.) 08 Jul 2017 22:49:28
Well thought out and put Cat. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘. I liked that mate and yes maybe you're right. We can't change the way we play just for 1 player.


 

 

07 Jul 2017 19:39:51
out of the 48 strikers to play in the premier league last season guess who ran the least amount of km, yep that was lukaku. out of the 48 he also came 42nd for sprints per game, its official he's lazy, that combined with his famous first touch and he is rubbish.

at a big club you can't stand in the box and let your team run for you while throwing your hands up and down, then tap in someone else's good cross, this deal alone may have just won us the league again, if he goes to utd im happy and confident we will win the league.

Cat

1.) 07 Jul 2017 20:58:53
Confident we will win the league if united sign lukaku. Guess we don't have to spend a penny then!

Come on in fairness, we can pull all the stats out the bag to say he is rubbish but his primary job, as a striker, is to put the ball in the back of the net and he does that pretty well.

With the Costa situation we have to buy a first choice striker. Granted there isn't many available out there but there's plenty of time to find one.


2.) 07 Jul 2017 23:54:31
if you watched lukaku last season and you watched chelsea you could clearly see he's all wrong for us, he scored 26 goals for everton last season and 6 of them were from crosses, as it happens chelsea last season crossed the ball into the box the least in the league, he played on the shoulder of the last man last season, when costa would drop deep and play with hazard and co.

07 Jul 2017 14:37:42
if we have missed out on lukaku, sometimes in football things happen for a reason i remember a few situations in the past, i remember barcalona wanted david beckham but he went to madrid so Barcelona signed ronaldinho instead, i remember us buying torres who was our first choice transfer target, and liverpool signed suarez, we would have been better off missing out on torres and signing suarez for 23 million from ajax, there 10 other strikers in world football who i would prefer over lukaku, i think its a blessing plain and clear blessing.

06 Jul 2017 11:40:15
nooo i just seen chelsea still in for lukaku, and no utd deal i really really want morata.

Cat

1.) 06 Jul 2017 12:46:29
I hear ya i reckon united will sign him this seems like a cute move to spark a bidding war lst jose have him morata will suit us a lot morw i reckon conte will be a lot happier with morata.

It depends how you want to see it, there are other, websites that say his napoli team play the best football in the world and its all his doing, different articles different opinions, i guess we got a choice the negative article or the positive one, i've personally chosen the positive version.

As soon as a player or manager signs on the dotted line for chelsea, he then should have our full support, we should cheer for him, will him, give him the benefit of the doubt, and welcome them to the blue family, its like we can't choose our family, as fans we have zero input, to who chelsea sign, if you support chelsea, the you should support the players and manager, if not are we really supporters? Or just people who watch.

i agree the squad has improved, but the starting 11 hasn't, i would of preferred if we signed 2 players of high quality who would walk into our starting 11 and push the other 2 on the bench, i think we are all getting carried away with the fact that we only spent 40 million, in reality 2 of the players had serious injuries and the other will be 32 next September, hence the price of the players are reflected, i'm hearing that Emerson is amazing and all that, but he's only played half a game for Roma this season and nobody knows if he has recovered fully from his horrific injury, or how he will settle in a new league country, language etc.

i always think the best way to improve a squad is to not buy squad players to full a squad, i think the best way is to buy players who are going to seriously improve the starting 11 and the players whose place they take go on the bench, so win win the squad and starting 11 both improve, its dangerous buying second rate squad players because if the first team starters get injured then then the gap in quality is huge.
