Need a massive overhaul within the team. Really make a statement and put out trust in Sarri
Icardi (after Higuain Loan spell)
Fekir/ Isco/ CAM
New cb?


Alonso and Azpi don’t need to be sold but need to be replace or at least rotated. Reece James and Emerson deserve a chance.
Jorginho in my opinion should be sold but that obviously won’t happen. I want 2 defensive midfielders of Kante and Paredes with and attacking midfielder (Fekir/ Isco) begind the striker hit that most likely won’t happen especially as we bought Jorginhos for £57million.
Willian is a liability and Pedro is getting on a bit. Have hazard and Odoi as our wingers with pulisic as a rotation with RLC if we desperately need another winger (or play Fekir/ Isco our wide)
Icardi up top. I don’t care what we pay, we need a quality number 9.


1.) 21 Jan 2019 11:15:28
Outs plus: Moses, Alonso, Hazard, Morata, Giroud, Jorginho, Green, Zouma, Kenedy, Batshuiyi, (and all others 0ver-23 out on-loan) - a complete clear-out of the deadwood (plus Hazard who doesn't want to be here).

2.) 21 Jan 2019 15:34:00
Jorhinho won’t leave I personally do t want him but he won’t even be dropped let alone sold.



20 Jan 2019 22:34:00
4231 would be perfect to resort back to
• new fullbacks or at least rotate James when he’s back and although I do like Alonso I do honestly believe we should give Emerson a chance to try spark something new
• 2 defensive midfielders of Kante and Paredes as Kante is being wasted as a box to box midfielder and I’m getting tired of the commentators mentioning it every game lol
• attacking midfielder is sign Fekir or Isco but both are unlikely. We should aim for someone who is direct and creative to sit behind the striker. Of course Hazard would do the job too but I’d prefer him on the left
• left wing hazard and right Hudson Odoi wig Pulisic rotating with them next season. I love Pedro and how he gives everything and how direct he is but Hudson Odoi is young and offers so much more potential. Willian on the other hand, I dislike very much. Get him out as soon as possible
• finally the striker, I Hope Higuain bangs in some goals as we really lack a no. 9 however next year I’d love to see us make a statement and sign Icardi or someone big although I do fear he may struggle n the prem.
Never the less, we need a change. Sarri is too stubborn to change our formation and change his tactics. Alonso Willian and Jorginho will start every week, Kante will stay upfront, Barkley will replace Kovacic in the 60/ 70th minute. It’s all the same. I hope he changes it.




10 Jan 2019 23:47:19
I would just trigger the release clause for icardi because let’s be honest it’s nkt even that much in today’s game and he will solve our problems straight away.
As for willian, I’d take whatever we can get! If the offer is £50m and Malcom, I’d take it any day and let Pedro contract run out.

Our wingers would be hazard Malcom CHO (hopefully we get CHO on a new contract I still have hope)
Cahill will probably leave and everyone know so would love Koulibaly but very unlikely so I’m not sure to look for.
Barella looks good but if we sign him the surely puts an end to RLC or Ampadus chances?

But if also sell Barkley as he’s only an average player - sign Barella instead
Personally I’d want to look for an attack minded midfielder as our midfield don’t create anything. Isco seems available and if that means not signing Kovacic permanently then so be it (although I really like him)

Finally let Zappa leave and I’d give Reece James the spot and rotate him in Europa and league cups and if he performs well play him against the lower teams in the league although that’ll probably never happen.


1.) 11 Jan 2019 09:04:03
icardi yes please sell willy for 50 and give 40 with that for icardi happy days.

2.) 11 Jan 2019 21:45:23
Icardi will NOT come to the Premiership - he already has offers from Real, Barcelona and PSG - but more than likely his agent is just after a better deal from Inter.



10 Jan 2019 23:42:59
Barella looks good but surely that means the end of RLC or Ampadu unfortunately.


1.) 11 Jan 2019 04:12:47
Barella can play across the entire midfield so i wouldn't think so. It'd likely mean we won't sign Kovacic permanently and maybe we'd look to offload Barkley instead. Personally i would love to see Ampadu in the Midfield and be Jorginho's backup since he's great with the ball under pressure and can pick out a pass. He's also staying since Cahill is of but i don't think Sarri will use him there. He certainly has certain attributes to be a useful player in that position.

2.) 11 Jan 2019 15:06:42
Matt Law is saying that Chelsea have agreed deals in principle for Barella and Parades but the club is considering whom the best replacement for Fabregas will be or if there is any need for a replacement at all. Also the bringing in of Kovacic is also being looked at.



22 Dec 2018 15:51:50
All some of our fans talking about is Wilson or Vardy as short term options. I don’t see why though. Yes they are good players, I’d be happy with Wilson as a second striker, but we should splash out on a big name player for the striker position like icardi not Vardy.


1.) 22 Dec 2018 17:13:03
Came back to bite you second half that. Vardy is a natural scorer he’s a brilliant worker too. I’ve wanted him for years.

2.) 23 Dec 2018 00:18:29
2nd striker to who we haven't got one.

Just read a comment, sorry can't remember who it was from but it said Emerson was good when he came on, he should start ahead of Alonso. I've honestly had enough of everyone hating on Alonso and preferring Emerson. He only played 5 mins! How can you say he deserves to start off that performance.

He didn’t do anything special all I remember was him miss placing an easy pass. I agree we should give Emerson a chance but I'm sticking with Alonso as he has been good all season, a few mistakes by never the less, good. Until his form drops massively and Emerson actually impressed me I’ll always say the same thing.

It seems as though fans just don’t like Alonso and want anyone to start above him. Remember the Liverpool game? Emerson was dreadful, always out of position. Then the next week we played them again with Alonso and he was a lot better.


1.) 27 Dec 2018 20:29:26
Wow. Do you actually rate Alonso as a left back? I think a lot of fans overlook his inability in defence due to his scoring ratio. Let's not forget he wasn't signed to be a striker. Most of times he is in a no.9 position and is constantly out of position.

2.) 27 Dec 2018 21:23:02
Emerson v alonso is one that rumbles on. Emerson does alonso on pace but Emerson dives in. I think Emerson will take over eventually. I don’t think alonso has been consistent this season. However I read he has hit the woodwork more than anyone else this season, 5 times. Funny how fickle we are. Those five go in and suddenly nobody is questioning alonso selection.
Funny how 6 inches makes someone a bad player.

3.) 28 Dec 2018 02:22:05
Not saying he deserves a go after 5 minutes we’re saying for the last few 5/ 6 games alonso has been Terrible end of look at the game play.

4.) 28 Dec 2018 02:59:07
I judge defenders on defending and not goals. Whether he’s hit the post 5 times or so is irrelevant if he can’t defend.

5.) 28 Dec 2018 07:54:15
Omg. Did I just read someone judge on Alonso on posts? Even if he had scored 5 that doesn't cover the cracks in his defending as a left back. Nicely said Kante.

6.) 29 Dec 2018 19:12:09
But he hasn’t been terrible. He’s been decent some games he’s not been great but neither has our whole team. Some games Azpi hasn’t been good but no one wants zappacosta to replace him? Emerson has looked decen. in the Europa league. Calm down everyone. I admit he should have a chance in the prem but if Alonso is playing good football and playing wellagainst the big prem mins why replace him with someone just because they looked good against Vidi.



06 Oct 2018 00:13:49
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.

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.
