Might be an unpopular opinion as I also would love to see us rotate our youth but I just can't see it happening.

On the basis that Derby get promoted I'd like to loan our top talented youth to then if they would like. Players such as Ampadu CHO Abraham Reece Hames and Mount again as I know Frank would love then as he rates them highly and I think he'd regularly use them to improve his team in the prem.

Obviously not all of them will go to the same team and not all will nail starting positions but it's just a thought as it would get the good regular premier league experience under a good manager.


1.) 03 Dec 2018 04:51:32
I agree with loaning out the other players you mentioned but we shouldn’t loan out Ampadu or Hudson-Odoi. Both of them need to Be intergrated.



02 Dec 2018 17:43:57
My ins and outs for next season:
New backup GK
Koulibaly (unlikely)
Icardi (again unlikely now)
Pulisic/ Bailey
Kovacic (he’s been good so far but if we secure Isco or another Cm then I’d opt to not sign him)
Chilwell (might be one for the future and good currently)

Luiz (liability)
RLC (only if he wants)

I’d also like to see ya rotate Hudson Odoi and Ampadu along with mount and Reece James.


1.) 02 Dec 2018 19:21:33
Good shout those 4 you’ve mentioned with the right mentality and tutoring could save us a fair few quid in the transfer market.

2.) 02 Dec 2018 20:20:58
CFC boy what about jay da Silva I believe he has the potential to play for us in the future.

3.) 04 Dec 2018 13:56:09
CFC Boy, you are 100% right to state D. Luiz- a liability, indeed he is. Please I plead with Sarri not offer him a new deal, let him go. There's a season in Fabregas but not D. Luiz. The coach and club should borrow a leaf from Mancity and bring in and build with top young players.
L. Cheek should stay and continue with the club.



25 Nov 2018 12:40:31
We need a more attack minded midfielder like a de Bruyne or an eriksen.


1.) 26 Nov 2018 11:46:34
de Bruyne? Didn't we used to have a player just like him? lol. Mason Mount hopefully will fit the bill.



24 Nov 2018 13:00:00
For next season, unrealistic yet still realistic if you know what I mean.

Pulisic/ Bailey
New backup GK
Kovacic permanently

RLC (if he wants)

Get hazard on a new contract and it’ll be a great season.




03 Nov 2018 17:21:14
Read news that we are not looking to sign Kovacic permanently next year. Not thinking to much of this as it’s very early but wanted to get your opinions
Do we sign him or not?
He’s been excellent so far and he’s still very young so I’d love for him to stay
However with Barkley and RLC performing like this at the moment it’s hard and especially next year when it’s RLC real season to either stay or go as well as Mason Mount coming back, what do u think we should do?


1.) 03 Nov 2018 18:03:15
I agree I love Kovacic as a player but I think he’d be better doing Kante’s job. And Kante is too important to get dropped. He would definitely be worth about 50 million in today’s market but I’d rather not sign him and see that out towards a striker like Icardi and a right winger like a Suso or Fekir.

2.) 03 Nov 2018 21:56:05
Unless there's a big reason that we don't know about, if not so, it's a bad news for me if we aren't looking to sign him permanently next year. Look at what he brings to the team this year. Next year for me would be more difficult cos we will be playing champions league football so we need to add to the team even if we sign him permanently next year.
If we don't sign him permanently next year, I bet you another EPL team will quickly push to sign for that £50m.
For me Kovacic is better and more experienced than RLC and Ross Barkley.
Kovacic easily adapted to Sarri ball than Kante.
Besides we haven't seen the best of Kovacic yet.

3.) 04 Nov 2018 09:39:40
Kovacic is an excellent player, but Barkley and RLC have goals in them. That’s the one thing Kovacic appears to lack.

4.) 04 Nov 2018 14:04:35
This a ridiculous fake news story - why would Chelsea make a statement now that might destabilize the player?!

5.) 04 Nov 2018 19:47:38
kovacic is a far better player dan rlc an barkley creative wise do barkley or rlc don't look as lively in possesion as kovacic.

6.) 04 Nov 2018 21:57:57
Mason Mount is still very much a very young player and still has much to learn. I feel he still has 2-3years of good development before he's ready for Chelsea.

My opinion on the game Thursday night.
Kepa - is showing us that he is worth the money and the investment, what a keeper.

Zappacosta and Emerson - dreadful defenders not even that goo going forward.
Cahill - I thought he was quite solid but he still needs to go.
Christensen - once again had a good game, need to start over Luiz.
Fabregas - played well, never going to start in the prem though.

Kovacic - proving he is a very good Cm and we need to sing permanently.
RLC - I thought he was one of the best players on the pitch.
Barkley - looked confident, needs to add more quality in the final third.
Pedro - average game but I prefer him to Willian.


1.) 06 Oct 2018 07:13:57
I felt that Emerson was quite good.

2.) 06 Oct 2018 10:24:09
Christensen needs to start over Luiz. AC got mistakes in him all the time? Did you watch the two Liverpool games. Your answer is there mate. AC gave the ball away numerous times and even set up Sturridge like he did a few times last year. Luiz was composed and had Liverpool in his pocket.

I'm glad Sarri is the manager, at least he knows what he sees in training and it's evident.

3.) 06 Oct 2018 13:16:35
I feel Christensen is obviously very good on the ball as is David Luiz, but my biggest concern about Christensen is that he's not very strong on the challenge yet like D. Luiz is (he's easily pushed off the ball which isn't good for central defender) . A David Luiz whose head is in the game is a bit better than him; also Luiz's experience speaks volumes too. Christensen can become better if he grows in strength.

4.) 07 Oct 2018 11:35:05
I'm be honest, I think AC does not have a future at Chelsea. Come next year you will see the club trying to sign Rugani or Ramagnoli or both. Zouma looks decent again and will need a chance.



21 Sep 2018 18:27:23
This is going to be very controversial but Jorginho. As much as I like him and appreciate he has had ana amazing stsrt to the season, he’s not as good as everyone says he is. Don’t get me wrong I think he’s currently one of the best in the league and without him we’d be a lot worse however I just can’t agree with the fact that he doesn’t ever make mistakes and he’s the key to our team. He’s consistent but nothing special like Kante. He’s very good at what he does but he does make mistakes when passing, he can’t run that fast and his attacking play isn’t very good. Not criticising him at all as I haven’t mentioned his multiple positives but I’m just saying what I think.


1.) 21 Sep 2018 19:09:34
Everyone’s opinion should be treated with respect and without doubt Jorginho has started well but like all new players, he will have to cofirm his start with a strong seasons performance.

Let’s hpoe it ends with a trophy or two!

2.) 21 Sep 2018 19:43:08
Some of the best central midfielders are not so quick, they play more with their head and precision and I think Jorginho has both. I do not agree with you CFCboy.

3.) 21 Sep 2018 20:30:14
I don’t agree either. Jorginho is vital to Sarriball. No he’s not fast but like the above poster said you don’t need to be as a CM. Pirlo wasn’t neither was Xavi or Iniesta and he’s got too players either side in Kante and Kovacic who will help him out.

4.) 22 Sep 2018 02:03:14
Have to agree with the original post. Don't get me wrong obviously he makes mistakes, almost everyone does. But he is one of the smartest players on the hall we've had in reason times, everything he does is with purpose. I think his pace isn't the best but his positioning is good. Passing exceptional and awareness reminds me of Cesc on a good day.

5.) 22 Sep 2018 07:56:46
Players like Jorghino usually get credit when something has been achieved because they go about their work quietly and are rarely eye catching. He thinks quickly, passes beautifully and reads the game well and a comparison with Kante is unfair as they are completely different players. Kante is eye catching because he is something of a 'Billy Whizz', here, there and everywhere. He breaks up attacks, drives forward and covers the whole pitch during a match so becomes more noticeable. Personally I do not like to see Kante push as far forward as he has done this season as it is putting greater pressure on Kovacic and Jorghino.

6.) 22 Sep 2018 12:19:50
Not that I’m coriticismg him I’m just not agreeing with everyone saying he’s amazing. Everyone on hear is right in what they said how you don’t need to be fast and he is a very good CM and I agree. But during the game the over night the commentators were praising him how he’s the best in the league at the moment and how he hasn’t made a single mistake but I can see a few mistakes he amde.

7.) 22 Sep 2018 14:58:26
The problem I have with Jorghino is that Kante has had to move into a position that doesn't suit him.

8.) 22 Sep 2018 21:44:18
Yea Miss Darren Wood, you are correct about Kante and Jorginho, and cos of that I sometimes feel that Chelsea's ideal midfield shape should be this-🔼 rather than this-🔽 (considering Jorginho's inability to win the ball: where Kante gets to partner Jorginho as one of the two deep playmakers) .



29 Aug 2018 11:38:14
People discussing what chelsea need to strengthen our squad and it baffles me how some people say David Luiz can become good in that role. He’s awful. Clumsy on the ball, not quick enough, always out of position and apart from his passing he can’t really do much. Add that to the fact that he’s in his 30s he needs to go.

We need to sign a CB either in January or next year to replace Luiz and partner Rudiger, rotate Christensen and give Ampadu chances

Full backs is a sticky situation because I love Alonso and Azpi but I’m this formation they aren’t quick enough to press and join the attack and then get back in defence. I don’t really know what full backs are out there on the market so I can’t say who we should look at.

Our midfield is excellent at the moment. All I’d say is rotate RLC more and give him chances, Sell Fàbregas and Drinkwater as they are just blocking his way to the team. Also next ear make Kovacic permanent.

Wingers; if we can tie Hazard down to a new contract it would be amazing but I’m not so sure as I think this may be his last year. Regardless we need another proven goal scorer on the wing, someone who can take players on and finish to take the pressure of hazard/ replace him if he goes. There aren’t many that can do that but I’d go for Bailey next year. Pulisic and Zaha are good options but my personal favourite would be Bailey. So next year sell Willian to find a move for Bailey and sell Pedro as he’s getting old and we have Hudson-Odoi who can easily take his place.

Finally striker, Morata has started the season well but I’m still not sure about him. Give him more time, till January and then we can make a final decision. As for Giroud, I love him but this has to be his final year, he’s a great sub but as we haven’t loaned out Abraham, he should be out second striker or at least get some game time in the prem. Michy coming back next year, I’m not sure about well just have to wait and see.


1.) 29 Aug 2018 18:20:04
If Azpilicueta and Alonso aren’t quick enough to press as full backs then RLC is quick enough or fit enough to press in midfield, Pulisic / bailey / Zaha would be brilliant, anyone although I imagine Zaha would cost a lot more, luiz is a liability and I think once Europa league games come and Christensen takes his chance home will push luiz out.

2.) 30 Aug 2018 03:26:02
We’ve got so many players that need moving on. Drinkwater, Cahill, Willian, Zappacosta, and Moses for definable. If we can bring in Bailey or Zaha Willian should be good as gone. I’d sell Cesc now if we could so we could still get a good fee. His legs have gone for this league even with a sub role. Kovacic and Jorginho are creative enough too and have better all round games.

My targets would be:

ST: Icardi, Lewandowski, Kane (Dreaming there, imagine that eh? Sell Giroud, loan Tammy.

RW: Bailey or Zaha - Bailey for me as we don’t have a left footer but happy with either. Willian out.

LB: Ghoulam or Grimaldo - Love Ghoulam but hard dealing with Napoli, maybe give them Cesc or Willian as a sweetener.

RB: I’m struggling to find one that fits Sarri’s style which is the most important. Hate to say it but Azpi isn’t the player there for me. Look at what Walker and Mendy give City.

3.) 30 Aug 2018 15:33:22
We need maguire. Luiz and cahill past it. Zouma not good enough.

4.) 30 Aug 2018 22:51:25
RLC might be physically fit enough to press in midfield, but is he mentally right? We have all seen how lazy he can appear and not looking like he's willing to put in a shift - perhaps that's why managers haven't given him too much game time, yet. I would love him to be our answer, but I'm not too sure at present.

5.) 30 Aug 2018 23:23:32
Would keep cesc. No one has his ability to pick out a pass, whether u use him as a sub to change a game or start him against certain opposition .

6.) 31 Aug 2018 17:23:40
No cesc needs to go, he’s getting older and yes he can pass but he can’t do anything else, can’t run, shoot, defend, press, nothing. He’s also blocking. RLc chances in the long run.

I would love Icardi, I’ve said it for months but I cannot see that happening so I honestly have no mice who we should target as a striker.



08 Aug 2018 22:04:08
I’m happy with today’s news.


1.) 08 Aug 2018 22:16:24
me to mate up the chels.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 23:06:44
Assuming we keep Hazard, it's been a good window.

Fekir would be an outstanding one.



26 Jul 2018 11:58:33
I don’t know whether the panic or be relaxed haha. Because right now we have only signed 1 player (excluding Rob Green) and there’s only 2 weeks left. But I feel as though we will wrap up the Rugani transfer, possibly Higuain and hopefully add another quality player like Milinkovic Savic or Bailey. But the main focus is keeping hazard.
As I said I don’t know if I should be worried or not because at the moment hazard and courtois are still here but we’re cutting time short to find a replacement if they go.


1.) 26 Jul 2018 12:32:11
I have a feeling Hazard will be staying with us although this isn't anything but guess work. I feel like if he were leaving we would've replaced him already. Maybe they've agreed that they will sell him next season at a cut price when perhaps some of our targets will be more attainable, like Bailey for example.

2.) 26 Jul 2018 13:14:36
I’m all for hazard staying but if he does not sign a new deal before the window shuts then the club should sell him £150m plus. The club is bigger than any player and if we are in the same position next year then your looking at £100m less. So for me it’s sign a new deal, £300k P/ W or sell him and get Bailey or Isco as part of the deal.

3.) 26 Jul 2018 13:19:20
Hazard ain't going anywhere!

4.) 26 Jul 2018 13:32:42
I'd prefer a season with Hazard playing Sarri football and trying to convince him to commit than sell him this summer. I don't even care if he walks on a free in 2020 he's that important to us. If Hazard goes I can't see us getting back in the CL.

5.) 26 Jul 2018 13:54:41
Fully agree with you on that Saim ;-)

No Hazard no Top4, I can’t see another player out there that we could realistically sign in the current climate that would give us what he does. People talk about his goals/ assists but his chances created for the team is probably top3 in Europe. Now if we had a striker that could finish them.

6.) 26 Jul 2018 15:56:37
I don't believe our top 4 hopes will go with Harzard. He's influential in the team but that doesn't mean end of CFC. It all depends on what players we bring in and how the coach adapts the team.
Many of us thought same with JT, Lampard and Drogba but here we are winning the title.
Again some of us may never appreciate some qualities in team until a shift is made. You may be surprised Chelsea turned down 55+ for Willian but he's that good. I believe he's not well used at Chelsea but a certain coach can do a Conte-Moses with him and the rest is history. We only need to address the striker/ attacking positions and we are good to go.

Pedro Drinkwater zappacosta, then Luiz and maybe Cahill depending on who we bring in, followed by Fabregas and Willian if he wants to leave and then Morata if we find a replacement.

They both had 90 minutes which means Kovacic will most likely start against Fulham.

We shouldn’t be happy wrh 4tg place, every year we should be title contenders and although city and Liverpool are better and stronger and more favourites we should still be aiming for it, at least 3rd.

Icardi has been my choice for a good few years, Koulibaly as well however he signed a new contract and doubt we’d get him especially from Napoli. Skriniar or whoever u say his name is a very good shout, he just seemed to appear out of nowhere and become good. Lastly I would love Leon Bailey and think we have a very good chance of signing him next year.
