Better give Hudson-Odoi a run of games. At 17 years old he's head and shoulders ahead of Pedro as a footballer. First player I'd sell in the summer would be Pedro. Offers nothing. If Conte can't see it then he's in the wrong sport. Same can be said for "running in treacle" Fabregas. Unless he's got his passing game on (which isn't very often nowadays) he's an absolute passenger. There's still an hour to get Mahrez haha.

1.) 31 Jan 2018 21:47:12
Doesn’t matter if conte see’s It he will be gone soon himself so won’t care who stays or goes.

Hi Ed,
Nobody has mentioned Vergil Van Dijk of late. There's a lot of talk around the media at the moment that he's going to go. Do you think this might be to Chelsea rather than Liverpool, as Southampton would rather sell to us than them apparently?
I think if a player of his calibre is available you sign them, I was slightly disappointed in the Rudiger signing knowing that VVD was going to be available. Not saying Rudiger isn't a good player and I'll obviously get behind him if he plays, but Van Dijk is a top top centre back!
Thoughts Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Southampton are aware if he is available there is interest from Chelsea and probably Arsenal still.}

1.) 05 Aug 2017 12:51:56
Do you know Ed if they will still do bussiness with Liverpool for VVD, they seemed to be favourites until the whole tapping up scenario. I don't expect you to know but i find it hard to believe they ended their interest in him. Thank you for all of the updates recently! .

{Ed018's Note - look through the Liverpool page. You will probably find your answer there}

2.) 05 Aug 2017 13:06:07
Vvd won't get first team football. that's why zouma went out on loan.

3.) 05 Aug 2017 13:22:42
Yeah there's a whole thread on the Pool page where Ed002 gave answers regarding Pool's dealings. Quite an interesting read.

4.) 05 Aug 2017 13:30:51
if he joins cfc . yes he will.
i don't think he will join tho.

5.) 05 Aug 2017 13:34:09
wht date and time Jackson?

6.) 05 Aug 2017 14:27:39
Date and time? Do you mean the thread on the Pool page? I think it was from yesterday on their Rumors page. Time stamp of the original post: "04 Aug 2017 10:15:05"

Ok will do, appreciate the reply.

Hey Eds. First time I've been on this year so Happy New Year to you and everyone else on the site! Just a quickie, used the search bar but didn't see anything so thought I'd ask. There's a lot of rumours regarding Nicolas N'Koulou leaving Marseille this month as his contract runs out on the summer. Any truth that we're front runners. He's a decent signing for a small transfer fee which could mean we spend more elsewhere on other players!
He's the sort of player who would probably do well in the prem, but I'll be honest I'm still praying for Stones as unlikely as that transfer is haha.

{Ed002's Note - Happy NY Nick. N'koulou was looked at by a number of sides including Arsenal, Lyon, Norwich, West Ham and Napoli with a view to a summer move. Marseille did expect interest from Lyon to lead to an offer but they may well be hedging their bets to pick him up when his contract runs out in the summer. Three clubs have held discussions with Marseille that could lead to an offer being made in January to take the player. Roma are very keen on adding another centre back in January, Chelsea who have been having on-going discussions over two other matters and Lazio. Lazio have told Marseille that they are looking for a pre-contract agreement to take the player when he is out of contract in the summer - but Marseille has explained he would be available for a small fee now if they are interested - and selling is clearly the preference of the club. Norwich and Arsenal have watched the player again this season and it is not out of the question that either could step in and make an offer.}



31 May 2014 17:30:47
Hey Ed,
I tried the search but couldn't find a recent answer from yourself. I've seen on ssn that Fabregas will almost certainly be leaving Barca this summer, and he has a £30m release clause. Do you think Chelsea May bid as a cheaper option to Pogba? I think he'd be amazing next to Matic!

{Ed018's Note - I'm pretty certain last time Ed002 mentioned it there was no interest in Fabregas from Chelsea. I believe it was mentioned that City were interested in him}



12 May 2014 21:39:41
Looks like we're getting Costa! Few agreed for £32m. Made my day!

1.) Where is this coming from? I would not expect anything serious until after his season is over surely?

2.) Ssn have been covering it for the last 2 hours. A £32m fee has been agreed, with the signing to be formally announced at the beginning of June, after the Champions League final and before the World Cup. Looks like we're sorting things out quickly, he's the missing piece and we've got him so I'm pleased as punch!

There's a big decision to be made at the club. One that will define what tier of football we want to be playing. To me it looks like sadly it has already been made.
It needs to be determined whether Chelsea plan to stay in the top tier of world football or whether they're happy as a club to sit in the next tier down. Gone are the days we buy premium players. I can't remember the last time we signed a real marquee player, probably Kanté but the board were keen due to the price.
Our rivals are spending and spending in what seems to be a fashion that wouldn't meet FFP but nobody seems to care. City and United constantly trying to improve, every player they seem to buy improves their starting 11. For too long now we've been buying squad players. We should have been in for Sánchez. We should be in for Aubameyang. We should have been in for VVD. Those players strengthen your starting 11. The only business we've done is Barkley, who let's be honest isn't leaps and bounds ahead of RLC. We're about to buy a LB in Palmieri, who is most likely going to be rubbish if he's anything like the last wing back we bought from Italy. As for Dzeko, he's a quality player but we should be aiming for the next tier up of striker.
Let's face it Hazard is going in the summer. The board needs to start sorting a replacement out for him now, preferably Dybala! Otherwise we're well and truly screwed!
Conte will also go as we all know.
Time to decide what you want to be Chelsea. You're alright taking money off the fans but it's about time you start using it properly and buying players people actually want to see pull on the shirt rather than cut price panic buys!

{Ed0333's Note - So you think Chelsea are screwed if you don’t replace Hazard with Dybala? Did you really just say that. I respect and appreciate your passion and partisanship for your team but Chelsea football club won’t be doomed if you don’t sign one player. Come on Nick get a grip mate.

1.) 25 Jan 2018 07:16:15
Morata was not a marquee signing at £70m Or did I miss that? We’ve spent the second highest amount on players in the prem last few seasons. Just we haven’t bought well. We haven’t bought well at all.

We haven’t the finances anymore to compete with the likes of United/ City/ PSG anymore. They are owned by countries mate, United is down to years and years of good commercial business. We are relatively new on that scene (since Roman came anyway) . And playing catch up on the others. There’s no way we could offer £400,000 to ONE player a week mate. I don’t understand how anyone can, I thought FFP was there to cap this obscene amounts but it hasn’t!

I said earlier this week, this club has 2 avenues to go down. 1 being BUY BUY BUY and try and stay with the richest of clubs or 2. Use the academy more and accept we won’t be challenging for the CL or the prem every year. That’s the cold hard truth mate.

2.) 25 Jan 2018 07:52:16
What do people see in RLC that I don’t? I don’t think he’ll ever be good enough for Chelsea and think he’s found his level tab Palace. The few games I’ve watched him in, he looked lost. Barkley is better then him, no doubting that. Just that injuries have played a massive part of him missing lots of game time. You can’t judge him on his performance yesterday. He’s so not up to speed yet, but with more and more minutes that will come.

Didn’t we say the same thing about Alonso being rubbish? What we really needed to do is gone all out for Sandro. 26 years old, he could have made the LWB his role for 4-5 years. It’s shame that Juve mucked us around.

Dzeko is a panic buy. No doubt, I’m not sure Conte is that keen on him. I think the board have taken this decision and remembered what Didier was like and hoping that we can knock balls up to him to win the aerial duels. 🙄

Personally and I really do think this. That Tibo and Eden will sign new contracts and then be sold for mega money next summer. That’s my personal view.

Agree about just squad fillers, I remember when we had 11 top class players on the pitch and then 7 on the bench. And none were moaning about not playing etc.

Going to be an interesting end to the season. And said it last summer and will say it again, we need to restart a transition period and either promote within or sell the mediocre players and buy better and WISER!

3.) 25 Jan 2018 08:33:25
Excellent, non-hysterical look at what is happening at Chelsea.

4.) 25 Jan 2018 15:22:02
It takes a lot for us to agree on things but your view of rlc is spot on not good enough
I believe Tammy isn't either to be honest.



22 Oct 2017 11:20:54
Not really sure why Bakayoko is getting so much abuse and negativity? You all realise he does 2 men's running every single game when he plays next to Fabregas? Let's face facts, Fabregas should not be starting in a 2 man midfield. Only way he can play is if we play a midfield 3 with Kante and Bakayoko, Cesc is effectively a luxury player, good on the ball but a liability when we don't have it. I think you'll see a better input from Bakayoko when he isn't required to cover Fabregas's running too, it probably explains why he looks so tired!

1.) 22 Oct 2017 11:34:59
Agree with this to some degree but he was also have the ball away and giving sloppy fouls away. But agree when he has right partner ( Kante ) and someone else depending on formation he will then show his qualities,

2.) 22 Oct 2017 12:32:25
I agree that Fabregas is a luxury player, a nice luxury to have but he should only play where we can dominate and at the moment that is debatable who that might be against. Superb passer of the ball but when he is not doing that pressure is brought to bear on others. I have said before that Bayakoko needs a year in the Premiership to come to terms with the pressure which is causing him to waste energy. If he could slow himself down, pick his passing better and think about his tackles; he is a bit 'bull in a china shop' at the moment.

3.) 22 Oct 2017 15:15:05
Bakayoko was getting too much positivities without any reason. Chelsea supporters should wake up and realize reality. Talented player who might or might not get to expected level in the future. The problem is that many took him for granted. He is 23 and it will take time for him to reach expected level. Take of the pink glasses and try to see things the way thay really are.

4.) 22 Oct 2017 22:06:34
Let’s not try to judge players after just nine games in the premiership!



12 Aug 2017 19:24:28
Big decisions to be made this week by the club. Either back Conte or face no champions league football again next season. Sold off all the squad players, loaned out younger players who were ready to be squad players and options this season, basically left ourselves with nothing on the bench.
We currently have 3 central midfielders in the squad, one is excellent, the other is injured, and the final one is perhaps the best passer in Europe but has the mobility of a pensioner. How have the management team let this situation happen? The club went over Conte's head with the Matic sale and don't look like they're going to replace him with anyone significant.
We need 4 players minimum, and by the middle of the week ready for Spurs!
This result today is not even shocking to be honest. I've been saying for a good while that Cahill is a liability. Fair enough it may not have been a red but what an awful touch in the first place. The bloke got himself off the hook so many times last season by scoring important goals after making awful mistakes. Van Dijk is available, go and buy him now! We need 2 full backs. We need at least 1 central midfielder, and I mean a proper one too, not talking Danny Drinkwater here!
So frustrating that we win the league and weaken the squad rather than strengthen it - we do this EVERYTIME we win the league and it can't continue! Get rid of the transfer team, we know who they are and it's time for them to go. It's time the club pulled its finger out their backsides and backed the bloke who won us the league last season! In Conte we trust, but the bloke can't work miracles when the club are doing him over! Changes are needed desperately, and quickly, otherwise it could be a good hiding next week against Spurs!

1.) 12 Aug 2017 20:36:28
Mourinho stole the proper one and board was extremely unsuccessful to keep him.
Danny Drinkwater was fantastic partner to Kante (so he would be my choice) .
Chelsea needs left wide player. I would rather sign 1 more striker than right wide.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 21:17:05
No antibot.



07 Aug 2017 01:45:14
Can't work out why we're still chasing Alex Sandro. The bloke isn't for sale! How many bids do Juve have to reject alongside their manager repeatedly saying he's not for sale because they've already lost Alves. Let's just move on and buy someone different, there's more than one left full back in the world!
I say go for Ryan Bertrand and VVD double deal from the Saints. If not then someone like Aaron Creswell, I want an English player! Get Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain to compete with Moses at RWB, another central midfielder (not Danny Drinkwater though) and an attacking presence and we'll be fine.
I must say, all these rumours around Gareth Bale - if the guy is available you buy him! We need to add depth to the squad as we're low in numbers, but at the end of the day when Hazard doesn't play we look poor. Bale is world class, fair enough he gets injured a bit but I'd go for him!

1.) 07 Aug 2017 07:53:29
If he isn't for sale why hasn't he signed his contract? Think there's a reason for that. regardless of Allegri saying he's not for sale. Said exactly the same about Pogba, Alves, Bonucci 🤔🤔.

Danny Drinkwater bossed the midfield with him and Kante in the middle in Leicesters title winning season, now has champs league experience under his belt and also an England cap. If he's under £30m, I'd say that I wouldn't mind thrashing out a deal for him.

Gareth Bale - wouldn't go anywhere near him. Constantly injured, imagine playing back in the premiership and constantly getting kicked, he's not like Ronaldo with his toughness, he'll be always on the injury table. No from me thanks.

Ryan Bertrand - I'd take him back in a heart beat. Loved the player.

VVD - another towering CB. Wouldn't mind signing this bloke neither, likes to play out from the back, composed and with Liverpool now apparently pulling out the race, I'm hoping we can sort a deal out with the Saints. Will be a tough buy though, as really don't think they want to sell.

Oxlaide-Chamberlain - another one i would take too. Can play a variety of positions and can offer us pace and some sort of defensive cover too. Just not sure if he's an upgrade on Moses.

Cresswell - like him as a player, but for us? I'm not convinced.

Hopefully the transfers kick on this week and can get a few done. Not holding my breath though.

2.) 07 Aug 2017 10:01:56
Drinkwater- No, VVD-No, Bertrand-No, Bale-No, AOC-No. Cresswell-No. all of them are £15-20m players and not an improvement on what we have.

3.) 07 Aug 2017 13:49:02
in what world is Gareth Bale a 15-20 million pound player some people have seriously short memories. as for VVD he's in the handful of best defenders in our league and would be a useful signing would mean moving Christensen on but a price worth paying I believe.

As for Betrand he's a excellent premiership left back and although not at the level of sandro would clearly improve the left side of our defence coupled with the fact he's English for the quota requirements he would be an excellent alternative to sandro.

4.) 07 Aug 2017 13:52:47
I assume you aren't including Bale in the 15-20m price bracket.

5.) 07 Aug 2017 18:59:56
Bale is not an improvement on Willian or Pedro.



05 Jun 2017 00:48:46
Hazard out for 2 months minimum with a fractured ankle! Just what we need ahead of the new season!

{Ed002's Note - It is the summer and he will likely return soon enough.}

1.) 05 Jun 2017 07:26:29
Yup it's some really bad news. Now he won't be able to participate fully in the preparations for the new season. Bad start to the summer for Chelsea.

2.) 05 Jun 2017 10:09:11
He got a bit of bad luck den for talking up a move to madrid poor eden hope he recovers for pre season.

3.) 05 Jun 2017 10:24:00
On the plus side it may put Madrid off bidding for him and causing us a problem.

4.) 05 Jun 2017 11:40:29
I agree.

5.) 05 Jun 2017 14:44:46
If Real decides to go for him 2 months injury won't stop them.

6.) 05 Jun 2017 15:19:58
Maybe not but hed need to pass a medical and chelsea would surely not want to sell der prized asset we are not a selling club to be fair roman wouldn't fancy been bullied by anyone amd im sire hed tell real hazard simply won't be sold as he did with costa in january to china.

7.) 06 Jun 2017 10:51:59
Chelsea will not sell Hazard, and he is out for 3 months so he won't possibly pass a medical even if they tried!

8.) 07 Jun 2017 10:33:24
Yes i agree.

What is wrong with people? We get a player who looks like he can have an impact on the first team and everyone wants him to go out on loan! That’s the problem we have right now with the club! We already look stupid for loaning our Loftus-Cheek!

Who is Sergej? You’ve named them alongside some of the best players in the world but I have absolutely no idea who Sergej is?

{Ed001's Note - Milinkovic-Savic, top class midfielder who can play as a holding mid, central mid or attacking mid. He is very reminiscent of Matic at his best but turned up to 11.}

To be honest I'm starting to wonder what the club are playing at! What's the point in ploughing money in to a youth academy if you're just going to sell every kid who comes through showing signs he could actually get in the team. I mean let's be honest, he can't be much worse than Matic was last season, the guy can barely run. We're going to regret not giving Solanke a chance, he'll be top scorer for Liverpool next season. Chalobah is a massive loss. If we're being genuinely serious, Loftus-Cheek could have the season of his life next year, win the PFA player of the year (that's a joke by the way) and Chelsea would still sell him, just because that's what we do! I've had enough it's pathetic. If I were Mason Mount I'd start fishing for clubs now. We're becoming a joke!

What I think will happen:
GK - Caballero or Stockdale
CB - Van Dijk
WB: Not sure why we need Alex Sandro when we have Alonso? Surely it's the RWB that's in question, not the left? They may still get Alves
CM - Bakayoko or Verratti
Forward - Lukaku (it's done)

I think we'll be going for pure quality this summer, I don't think Conte will mess about.

Matt Martin you are so pessimistic it's crazy! I don't even like reading your comments anymore. Pretty sure you don't like / rate any of the current Chelsea squad. You're piping up about Neymar, I'm not sure whether you know or not but we own a player called Eden Hazard, probably the same level as the guy you're obsessing over. We've signed a player who was in the Champions League squad of the year and a guy who's potentially going to be one of the best strikers in the world in the next couple of years! Calm down, you're doing everyones head in!
