Hey lads, I know a good friend of Bakayoko, anyone that has been on here as long as I have knows I don't do stuff like this for fun so obviously I'm being serious, he gave me some info but I don't think it's my place to go into detail but what I can say is that the deal should go through soon enough; i know it's not saying much but from what he says Bakayoko would be a blue. Have a good weekend guys.


1.) 11 Jun 2017 07:56:54
We've got our very own insider blue! ;-) I trust you to not just post random BS, ELI. Indeed you've been on here for a long time.
I hope you're right, and I think we're lucky that Bakayoko wants to join us.



12 May 2017 05:55:41
Hey Ed, hope you're well? Quick question, are we interested In Bale? Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has not spoken to Madrid about Bale.}

1.) 12 May 2017 23:29:26
Have Real Madrid spoke to Chelsea about Hazard?

2.) 13 May 2017 08:27:05
Look on the Real Madrid page - there was an update re: Hazard there.

3.) 14 May 2017 08:55:45
I'm told RM asked about Hazaard and we told them he is NOT for sale. They asked again last week and we responded with Morata, Isco, Bale plus cash. I just can't see this happening!

{Ed002's Note - Someone is teasing you.}



11 Aug 2016 05:12:38
We're loaning Traore to AJax? Please someone help me understand what's going on at the club, I'm lost.


1.) 11 Aug 2016 06:20:10
I believe the only way Traore would be aloud to leave is that mean that we have agreed a deal to sign another striker. My bet would be on Gabigol or Icardi, fingers crossed.

2.) 11 Aug 2016 06:57:45
But why loan him to Ajax? Why not a team in a more competitive league? Also, Gabigol I really don't see how he offers more than Bertrand anyway, if that were the case (I personally do t think so, but we shall see) .
This has really annoyed me, as it seemed he and Kenedy had broken into the team last year as some of the only positives of our woeful season, and now both of them are seemingly disappearing to the purgatory that is our army of loanees. ) :

3.) 11 Aug 2016 07:07:09
Superfrank I agree. I don't believe he would leave otherwise.
I still believe we might see Remy go.

As long as we get top 4, give some youngsters a chance I'm happy. Hard to say but I don't see us winning the league from the signing Utd have made, I believe they are favourites.
Hopefully I'm proven wrong lol.

Be nice to see a new centre back and a striker.
Remy, Mikel sold and a few loans.

4.) 11 Aug 2016 07:43:29
I agree that someone would probably be coming in to replace Traore. But why? Traore is one of our most talented young attackers, and I don't see what he offers less than Barbosa for example. I'd be really disappointed.
We'll lose him for longer than 1 season if we loan him out now and replace him. Not to mention that it blocks the way for Tammy Abraham, who's on loan now and already got 2 goals in 2 appearances for them.
I sometimes really do not understand what the club are thinking.

5.) 11 Aug 2016 09:05:17
Conte obviously knows what he wants. Shame Traore and Kennedy are going on loan. Get ride of mikel and rely first though!

6.) 11 Aug 2016 10:09:01
Traore's issue is the need to bulk up a bit and Kenedy is not a left back, attacking wing back maybe but I see him as a left winger.

7.) 11 Aug 2016 10:10:43
I rate Solanke highly. I'm hoping we agree a deal with him as I think he could be an England and Chelsea legend.

8.) 11 Aug 2016 10:48:23
has anybody heard his name mentioned once by conte? or has he gone on loan already?

9.) 11 Aug 2016 12:03:28
PSV won the league last year so it's not like it's a walk in the park for Ajax. He needs game time to help him progress. Wasn't going to get that at Chelsea. Odd minutes here and there, so was well worth him going out on loan. Pretty sure that does mean we have someone lined up to come in. Last 20 days of window and think we will be very busy!

10.) 11 Aug 2016 16:27:45
Plus he'll get some champions league experience.



27 Oct 2015 09:38:07
Thanks for the update Ed as usual we appreciate it.

So Looking at that what say you guys? I personally think the name that stands out for me is Griezmann, that would be a signing that sends chills down the opponents spine without him even kicking a ball. if we get him I think we could have some player on our hand. However, Can't help but feel maybe that would be Hazard gone but either way Griezmann would be a great signing just behind the striker. Never heard of Jonathan Calleri, till ed's update so I checked him out, you tube isn't the best way to judge a player but boy at 22 he has scored some beautiful goals. He looks In the mould of Aguero and if Hazard leaves think we should sign him not as a direct replacement but as someone that has the talent to replace Eden plus would have a resale value he is a striker that could also play any where behind another striker. Looking at the back and to be honest I was gunning for Stones but Magical and Jackson now have me leaning towards Marquinhos and even Laporte. With Marquinhos being the main target now I think I'll be definitely be pleased with that. He and Zouma would really compliment each other.

Now the big problem for me is at the center of the park, I really feel we are looking at the wrong places, I for one would love Neves, I think we should do what we can to make sure he joins us but he is in every sense of the word one for the future, Xhaka is a good shout but there is no interest, Tielemans looks like we have a chance and a loan back would be perfect he looks really good but still rough around the edges. But for me, I would love to see Andre Gomes of Valencia. Physicality, vision and technically sound. Top player, surprised we've dropped our interest in Him, thought he was the kind of player Mou would have pushed for.

That said there is still a long way to go and our focus should be on the league and bouncing back as quickly as possible, we do still have a lot of good players and if we could put in a good run till January I think we could still have a season worth while. Again thanks Ed002, really appreciated.


1.) 27 Oct 2015 13:46:28
Griezmann just seems to find ways to score, doesn't he? :-) His technique on the ball isn't as good as Hazard's for example but he's just got that killer instinct. Ideally we'd have both of them in our team. Hazard as a creator, Griezmann as a direct attacking threat.
Marquinhos is obviously a little smaller, but he's not short per se. I think he's around 1m83 or something, so if he's got a decent leap on him then that's more than enough. He's the same height as Thiago Silva and that guy's a beast in the air. But I'd be happy with Stones, Laporte or Süle as well. All of them are already really good and still young enough to become world class. Then after next season (so after 2016-2017) bring back Christensen to perhaps replace Terry. Then we've got Zouma, Cahill, new CB and Christensen as the CB options. That'd look pretty good to me, especially when you consider how rapidly Christensen is developing on loan at Gladbach.
Gomes is one of my favourite players in the world, so I'd run around with a smile on my face for a month if we got him. But with CM as well, there are a lot of fantastic players that we could target. I trust the club to make the right decisions.

2.) 29 Oct 2015 18:44:17
Nice read guys. There's quite a list of players of interest. Who would you like to see moved on from the current squad to accommodate these potential signings?

3.) 30 Oct 2015 10:31:09
I would personally sell Ramires to make space for a new CM. I really like him and he gives his all for the team, a true warrior. But his technique and passing just aren't good enough for us I feel. Mikel I've always liked, and still do. He just brings that calming influence on the pitch, so I'd keep him.
I was never a fan of the Pedro purchase, so if it was possible I'd sell him to bring in Griezmann while still having space then for Kenedy and/or Traore in the squad.
Either Djilo starts playing or we get that new CB and he gets loaned or sold. Then we've got Cahill, Zouma, Terry and new CB next season. After next season maybe Terry goes to MLS or Qatar or wherever (just nog England please, John) and we bring back Christensen if he keeps on developing at Gladbach.

4.) 31 Oct 2015 11:30:50
I agree with your acessment, Ramirez is a warrior and has great work rate. That doesn't outshine those wayward passes and heavy touches. Mikey is awesome squad player an does the job 9/10 when he plays. I don't see why so many fans get on his and want rid. Pedro was a strange buy when Kenedy and Traore can play his position. Griezmann is the dream buy, the past few seasons he has been on fire. Rumours of Costa wanting a return to Spain, may be a swap deal opportunity. CB Christison is currently doing alright at Gladbach, I'd like to see him back. John looks like he's in his last season, so we may see a change in the summer. I'd prefer we to see the youth a chance and not go blowing big money on a CB. We do still have Kalas, not seen much of him this season. He's done ok when given an opportunity. Thanks for taking the time to reply Jackon.

5.) 31 Oct 2015 18:36:34
It's my pleasure, Beedy :-) Happy to share my opinion.



14 Oct 2015 15:14:28
Hey Ed002, hope your doing well quick question if you have the time.

Is the interest in Isco and Koke genuine. And if it is do you think will move for either one of them January or next summer. Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - See previous answer about Isco. In January 2014 Barcelona held talks with Atletico Madrid about Koke and Chelsea also discussed Koke in terms of being part of a possible part exchange deal with a Chelsea player. Atletico wanted to keep him and Barcelona looked to Rakitic instead but interest in Koke still exists from England. After declaring he would not move in the summer of 2014, interest was deferred until next summer. Manchester City see Koke as a possible long-term replacement for Yaya Toure. Chelsea spoke again with Atletico this past summer and made clear they remain interested. Bayern Munich may become interested if he comes up for sale, but again there are other factors that could influence that.}

1.) 14 Oct 2015 17:10:51
Nice one Ed. I'd prefer Isco I don't see Koke leaving personally. I think he's a one club man abit like Gerrard, he loves Atletico.

2.) 15 oct 2015 09:14:13
thanks ed002, agreed magical, i think if we can get neves nd isco i'd be happy with that.

3.) 15 oct 2015 11:32:02
how could you not be happy with isco, eli? :-p he's awesome!

4.) 15 oct 2015 12:41:59
:d, i know jackson i guess it goes without saying, isco would be a fantastic buy. Neves looks a world beater as well.

5.) 15 oct 2015 22:29:14
i can't say i've seen a lot of neves. But he looked very good against us and he's played a lot of games for porto since last season while he was only 17 so there's definitely a lot of promise. Getting him or tielemans would be great for the future.

Hey Ed002, as an old time poster and one that once wrote a song to bring you back to the Chelsea page after you received similar abuse on our page I was just wondering if at all there is anything we regular posters can do to bring you back. I have been on here long enough to no that no matter what there will always be a few people who try to cause chaos and disrupt the community, it’s kind of like our everyday lives on earth, how aa few dent the image of a rather peaceful group or bunch.

Like many on here I come to understand that we must respect your
as we have no idea what sort of insults your getting, luckily we have Ed001 and 018 who also help us a lot. I just want to know if there is a way we posters can help to reduce the trolls from the forum. Again thanks for your hard work over the years.


{Ed002's Note - No, there are plenty of people who want to wreck it for everone else. It is much better that I don't provide anything re to Chelsea and transfers.}

1.) 15 Jan 2018 17:44:08
Hey ed just after a yes or no answer, I know your not going to give us any info regarding names of transfers but is they anyone you no we might sign that we don't no about it? Again only after a yes or no if you don't want to its cool, we are all just in a bit of a rut at them min. Thanks either way.

{Ed002's Note - Not surprisingly I have no why of knowing what you know and what you don't know.}

2.) 15 Jan 2018 17:51:10
As a constant poster on here and as frustrating as it is without your input 002, abuse isn’t right and although we will keep asking most of us understand why you don’t update. Shame some idiots ruin it for rest of us who loved the excitement of being linked to certain players,

3.) 15 Jan 2018 18:23:13
Ed2 do we have anything else in the hat for january barring andy carrol, Benteke and Boyake rumours. Yes or no will do.

{Ed002's Note - I am not interested.}



24 Dec 2017 09:28:49
MERRY Christmas to the Ed’s, fellow blues and every user of these sites. Wishing everyone the best this festive season.


{Ed001's Note - cheers ELI, have a very merry Crimbo to you and all the others that use this site.}

1.) 24 Dec 2017 13:10:46
Merry Xmas and a prosperous new year in advance, i guess our relationship will be better from next year.

2.) 24 Dec 2017 14:01:26
Nice one Eli. Happy Christmas to you and all on here.

3.) 24 Dec 2017 15:10:10
Merry Christmas and best wishes all around!



02 Nov 2017 10:50:42
Am i the only one that doesn’t believe this Contebis going get sacked rumors. I mean please tell me why this is even a topic, fourth in the league still very very likely to get out of our group, quater finals of the cup. The board failed to get the right players in, everyone could see the thin squad we had at the end of the window we settled for quantity over any quality, let’s be honest we didn’t improve our starting eleven not even in one position so please tell me how Contes job is on the line?

Well I got one blame him for certain selections, like Cahill and Willian, would rather Christensen grows and we lose games, same goes for Musonda. Other than that I think the summer we had is to blame. If they as much as think of sacking one of the better managers and en we’ve had in the locker room I’d be devestatee not just as a Chelsea fan but a football fan. His head should not be on the line whoever’s choice it was not to improve the starting eleven should.


1.) 02 Nov 2017 16:32:05
Conte is the best manager that Chelsea had in a long long time. He knows why this and not that player because there are many things that we do not know and they concern fitness, form, health status etc.



14 Oct 2017 16:02:00
Willian is just awful at the moment, he just keeps giving away possession.


1.) 14 Oct 2017 16:29:05
Hes been off form for a while time for musonda to take his place
People saying luiz has been bad why drop christensen i thought he was fantastic against city imo.



02 Oct 2017 22:28:45
Actually Tom Morata is out for six weeks🙄.


1.) 03 Oct 2017 02:40:39
Us fans and Conte have to trust Batman.
No point in fans bemoaning the situation. Its up to the player to prove the doubters wrong!

2.) 03 Oct 2017 11:59:50
I've just been told that JT has agreed a deal with a publisher for a tell all biography!
Not sure if this new info but I'm sure there are plenty of people dreading what he has say! In particular his relationship with the FA!

3.) 03 Oct 2017 13:19:23
This sort of situation was usually peculiar with Arsenal but I guess something might have really changed at Chelsea.
Mediocrity will hug us if we don't worry about situations like this. 🙅

If Conte ain't confident of playing Batshuayi (and we know that Conte is a good coach), the question we should be asking ourselves is WHY?

4.) 03 Oct 2017 14:04:10
im. more worried about possibly losing Conte nezt season if reports are correct tbh.
Morata will be a big miss but we have adapt and play our game.

5.) 03 Oct 2017 14:20:56
For up to 6 weeks, ELI, so could be a little less than that. Guess we'll find out. But even without Morata we should be able to beat Palace and Bournemouth :-)

6.) 03 Oct 2017 14:29:46
I prefer to believe that Batman will step up to the plate and surprise certain pundits and fans!
I also have concerns about Conte's longevity. Not signing a contract extension made me even more concerned.
Conte is a class act and I would be gutted to lose him.

7.) 03 Oct 2017 16:28:51
When I posted a few weeks ago that Conte would be leaving next summer I was attacked mercilessly! I stand by what I said, Conte will be returning to Italy next summer.

8.) 03 Oct 2017 18:33:09
Could be Miss Wood but let's live in hope because as I've already said, I personally will be gutted but I think the club will be the poorer if he leaves!

9.) 03 Oct 2017 20:05:35
I agree we need to trust in Bats, Willian needs to get himself sorted.
The worrying thing re Conte is I don't think he saw England as long term measure. I think he is an honourable man so we may get three years out of him. But I believe that is the best we can get and he will head back to Italy
As for the team, let's stop panicking it's the start of October. It will be fine let's just be patient.

10.) 04 Oct 2017 05:50:10
Could be the return of Ancelotti.

I'm one that owes him an apologythough I don't want him to leave I'm guilty of stones saying he should be a squad player and not in our eleven but like many tines before he has shown his quality. Perhaps he could come into his prime towards the end of the season big player for us .

Feel the same way Ed, I usually eat at half time, haha, it's crazy cause sometimes it's not like I'm not hungry it's just I can't enjoy the meal and the game at the same time.


{Ed001's Note - I literally feel sick just thinking about eating during a game. It is me ma's fault, she passed it on to me. She ended up with ulcers from going to the games as she gets so nervous.}

True Matt but I for one would rather lose 0-3 to Bournemouth blooding in quality youngsters that playing said experience players. Plus Hudson Odoi looks quality, I know we say this way too often but the boy looks really good, body balance, change of pace and doesn'tlook out of place among the regulas hope he gets more opportunities.
