Is Chelsea still interested in signing Bakayoko and Sandro or the personal terms and transfer fees are not agreed yet?
Ed please throw some light.


{Ed018's Note - yes they would still like to sign both. I'm not sure about any terms being agreed at this moment. I know Chelsea met with Juventus this past Monday about Sandro but it sounds like it might drag on for a bit. I still think Bakayoko will get done here at some point}

1.) 09 Jul 2017 21:25:57
Undoubtedly Sandro is world class. I am surprised that we are looking for a major recruitment in that dept as Alonso did a fantastic job. Granted his lack of pace is a concern but still it wouldn't be a major desaster if Alonso was first choice again next year.

2.) 09 Jul 2017 22:16:58
This allows Alonso to move into the Left handed centre back role. Where he sometimes played for Fiorentina.

3.) 09 Jul 2017 22:21:34
The problem is united still want a player like Bakayoko, he is an easier and cheaper target than Eric Dier or matic. We have been pussy footing about for weeks again, I can honestly see united coming in and signing him.

4.) 09 Jul 2017 22:46:05
Well let's look at it like this. If you united swoop in and buy bakayoko then at least we know the problem lies with chelsea and how we recruite players.

5.) 10 Jul 2017 00:34:51
i don't understand how the club doesn't see the advantage having Bakayoko gives above other clubs. This isn't a transfer that should even be deliberated upon. WHAT A PLAYER BAKAYOKO IS (just 22-23yrs) . For those that think Chalobah should be given a chance as against having Bakayoko, please they should think again. He has the ability to outplay Kante even. Pls not this one.

6.) 10 Jul 2017 07:36:03
The problem with buying Bakayoko now, is, that we haven't a buyer lined up for Matic.

If United were still interested/ Chelsea were willing to sell to them, it might get done quicker.

That's just my thoughts on it.

7.) 10 Jul 2017 09:56:41
I doubt if we 'won't' sell Matic to Man U for petty reasons. It is far more likely that Matic will sign for United as soon as Bakayoko signs for us - which will be this week.

Thanks Ed018 for the reply.

Top four finish is difficult now. Liverpool and Spurs have easy fixtures. Then again this is Chelsea. U never know.


1.) 25 Feb 2018 19:31:26
Could all hinge on our two home games against Spurs and Liverpool.

2.) 25 Feb 2018 20:01:39
just need to win all remaining games and we will be fine.

3.) 25 Feb 2018 23:20:58
It's the season after winning the league, so by a new founded tradition we take a break from Europe next year and win the league again.

4.) 26 Feb 2018 10:07:00
Love it Sid.

5.) 26 Feb 2018 13:36:00
With Liverpool at home to Newcastle and Spurs at home to Huddersfield while while we're away at Man City, it may well be all over for us by next weekend.

6.) 26 Feb 2018 16:10:03
Some may say a dose of realism but I would say say a
dose of pesamisem.

7.) 26 Feb 2018 18:02:04
It's reality. we are simply not good enough to fight against city.
But after this game We have to all remaining games to give us a chance.

8.) 26 Feb 2018 21:04:08
I’m happy ish if we win the league every other season!

9.) 27 Feb 2018 10:22:11
The problem TomB is that our present team cannot compete with City (nobody can) - we need 4 top signings to get anywhere near them.

10.) 27 Feb 2018 11:25:50
Very true Miss Darren Wood. We never looked at what our main rivals were doing.

11.) 27 Feb 2018 12:19:42
Every fan has a different view on what and who would a top 4 signing and it’s the same with our club.
Our club looks to have a Business Plan that is different from a lot of clubs and I’m only guessing but the club may well have taken a view that it will not compete with the likes of City, PSG or maybe even Utd.

12.) 27 Feb 2018 13:31:18
It's real for a man to invest £1 and get £100 but it stupid and criminal for a man to invest £1 and expect to get £1,000,000 when your competitors are as good as you or even better.



25 Feb 2018 14:54:10
Morata seems unfit and uninterested. Giroud should be on in the second half.


1.) 25 Feb 2018 15:42:49
He is proving somewhat of a disappointment at the moment. Not looking sharp at all.

2.) 25 Feb 2018 15:27:41
Morata is really strong until he thinks his done enough to win a foul then goes down, needs to talking to drogba hot when he had all the theatrics, changed his game hugely,

3.) 25 Feb 2018 15:53:46
The whole team looks jaded, tired. Maybe Barcelona game took out the intensity.



20 Feb 2018 21:48:16
I will take the result. All to play for in the second leg. Not having a target man has affected the Chelsea play. Although we could reasonably argue that Conte was going for the pacy counter attacking system.

Gutted to concede a soft goal. But overall fair result.


1.) 20 Feb 2018 21:56:08
Fair result would have been a Chelsea win in my opinion.

2.) 20 Feb 2018 22:13:04
Sometimes we have to give credit where it's due. We were playing against a team who is top of the league and is having a 24 games unbeaten run.
Barring from the one defensive mishap which leads to Messi goal, we were solid in defence. We can defeat Barcelona in camp Nou. All to play for.



14 Feb 2018 21:46:24
Pace of this Madrid vs PSG game is scary. Lovely display of attacking football! End to end stuff.
Wonder how our game will be.


{Ed0333's Note - the mind boggles



12 Feb 2018 21:58:09
We were clinical. Not back to our best but that will do. Atleast player's showed some determination.
Giroud is good for the way we play. Missed that focal point since Costa's departure.

Yes the past comments are vile and disgusting but every man does deserve a second chance at redemption atleast.

Would our dear posters apply the same criteria at the case of John Terry's racial abuse to Anton ferdinand and other issues. Do you not idolise our captain, leader and legend despite all that.

We must judge Sarri for footballing reasons not on past comments.

We fans are simply divided on this matter. Appointing Sarri will be a bold risk, that Chelsea will have to take at this juncture. I would love to watch attacking, free flowing football for once at chelsea instead of this so called tactical managers. Pragmatic/ CV managers i. e. Conte and Mourinho are good for winning the trophies but when that does not happen, you are left with dour, long ball punting football.

To give this club a identity and footballing culture I think this appointment is vital. In order to have this we can ignore the earlier remarks of the incoming head coach. Football is important at this moment not political correctness.

Cahill always plays like a fan. His heart is in it but his playing style has its limitations.

Typical English defender . great blocking shots but poor in passing, pace and tactical discipline.

Conte is a Genius but like every genius he is a bit mad- Pirlo

Conte is great at building teams and winning titles but when things don't go his ways he becomes bit eccentric.
This has always been his problem in the past. In Juventus he famously quoted " you can't dine in $100 restaurant wearing $10 suit". This was said criticising juventus 's lack of spending. Two days after he parted ways.

Now similar story is playing out at Chelsea. He is disgruntled with mediocre buying of the board. Having said that we all know the spending power of Chelsea is greatly reduced by this so called financial Prudence. The club now clearly want to buy young players cheap and sell on a profit. Hence the bakayoko, Barkley, Emerson etc.

I am following Chelsea since 1999 and can't comment on the era before that. But this Chelsea side is used to winning and I can't fathom the lackluster attitude of players. Losing is fine but not trying to win is .

Squad needs rejuvenation and motivation. I am not sure Conte can do that but if he turns this around then I am sure we will achieve something great this season. A champions league perhaps😀 hey a fan can always wish.

Sorry for the long post.

PS: I am not a troll😂.

No. Still don't like his approach. He wanted to minimise the damage not win. Game was lost before it started. What's the point of having creative players when we play with 10 defenders.

A long Ball to opposition area serves no one as there's no one to hold the ball and allow others to move forward. This is where Drogba and Costa was important.
Alas, Conte's who is greater than Costa. Now even Tbo can understand that long Ball to Hazard in the false nine position is not the way out. Ball will be won by opposition and Hazard will cut a sorry figure haplessly ambling around. This is precisely what happened last night. When you have Giroud and Morata, playing hazard as false nine idiotic and pathetic. Conte is asking for the sack knowingly and eyeing that fat Severance check. Shameless.

And how exactly will Tbo play out. A long Ball to Hazard. Oh I am sorry he is not a target man and Giroud/ Morata is warming the bench. pathetic.

How will you when you r that ultra defensive. Italian Tony Pulis.

Even a novice fan like me can see that our team is not set up to play a false nine system. Hazard was isolated the whole match. Also as if the whole team is lethargic and don't believe in Conte.
To be fair I didn't expect this ultra defensive setup. Conte is asking the board to sack him. No acknowledgement between Hazard and Conte after substitution. Worrying times. Both could go in the summer. Conte perhaps earlier.
