Hey lads, obviously everyone on here knows I don’t have contacts and have never claimed to but like during the bakayoko transfer as I know a good friend of his who told be he’ll be coming to Chelsea and I shared just thought I’d share also that Fekir is thought to be the player we’d be after to replace Eden if he leaves.

Hope Eden stays and we still go for Fekir which could happen too? Just thought I’d share.

Cheers and looking forward to the big game this evening.


1.) 19 Jan 2019 14:52:50
Fekir IMO can play left but is more of attacking midfielder, not an out and out winger, seems odd replacement, insigne would be best hazard replacement.

2.) 19 Jan 2019 15:51:30
Well Mart for our national team Fekir does play wide, but yeah he is more effective in a 10 role and it is his preferred role probably why he isn’t as effective in the national team.

3.) 19 Jan 2019 17:02:43
fekir would have the bit of creativity and magic we need and of course had a few goals in hin.

9 years now that I’ve been on this site and it’s the first time that I’ve seen the focus fixed on who’s Positive and who’s negative and to be honest that’s a stupid approach for a banter page.

If I’m being honest off the top off my head G8 and TomB are the only two posters who are positively constructive with their comments while a whole lot other barely make any sense but are quick to call others out as being negative.

Some comments can be “toxic” yes I use this word cause it’s pure drivel but some really good posters who banter and look at things objectively (not always in support with our beloved blues) but objectively nonetheless are called fake fans and negative and for the good of the site this has to stop. It’s a banter page and though I do agree that “ it is my opinion” is not a good argument nor a constructive defense of ones points, some posters do have constructive criticisms and instead of banter everyone turns on them.

We all live Chelsea a bit too much but what can I say it’s hard not too so how about we stick to banter and stop the personal attacks.

Ps. Jorginho had a good game, but I stick to my point against smaller teams who sit back he just doesn’t have what it takes ala Cesc, Busquet Verrati, Pirlo s etc to make that defense splitting pass. Let’s banter.


1.) 09 Jan 2019 10:14:13
i get your point being a banter page and maybe your right we shouldn't get so worked up an negative a lot of time i just say stuff for a bit of reaction of certain posters i no il get 1 off haha but yeah it is a very toxic place this site at times i always love tom b s insight.

2.) 09 Jan 2019 10:53:28
I never get any shoutouts on here : ( . lol.

3.) 09 Jan 2019 12:51:01
Agreed about Jorghino against teams who play defensively as he offers nothing creatively which we desperately need from at least one of the three CM players.
Additionally not one of them has a record of scoring regularly which heaps a major pressure on the front three.
Luiz has taken over the reponsibility of playing Cescs role leaving Jorghino to pass the ball 15 yds sideways or back.
The whole balance of the team isn't right at the moment but at least we seem defensively more solid.



17 Nov 2018 07:03:32
Apparently Pulisic is coming in, that would be a brilliant signing. Let Willian go and use Pedro and Pulisic on the right flank. All we need now is a striker and we can go on to challenge City properly.


1.) 17 Nov 2018 07:31:13
We can only dream. Please give us info ed1 or ed2.

2.) 17 Nov 2018 08:19:34
Truly we can only dream. Pulisic is something! What a player if we can bring him in.

3.) 17 Nov 2018 08:41:51
We need Willian as Hazard's backup.

4.) 17 Nov 2018 08:52:40
A lot of rumours about pulisic, however they all appear to be spineless, it's the same story being recycled by most the tabloids. Why would Dortmund sell at this stage of the season? I find it hard to believe.

Ed1 do you know anything about the above?


{Ed001's Note - nothing about him moving in January. I know he was considering his options if Dortmund did not show that they could challenge in Europe, but they would not be happy to let him go now and I doubt he would force his way out. It would go against character for him to do that, he is not Dembele and he is very well advised. The summer would be when I expect him to move.}

5.) 17 Nov 2018 09:12:06
Thanks Ed1. I thought the rumours sounded a bit over the top for January.

The summer is a long way away so rumours about a summer deal should be left for then. Anything could happen before the summer, currently he hardly plays, he could get injured, he could lose confidence due to playing time etc. Seems like paper nonsense blowing both January and Summer options. So if they get January wrong they can push for summer.

{Ed001's Note - well you never know, Chelsea might have seen an opportunity and Dortmund need the funds to invest in the team, but it seems unlikely. Sarri does want a right winger though. I just feel it unlikely and have not heard anything regarding them looking to sell, quite the opposite. Last I heard they were trying to push offers away to keep a team together so they can try and win the title and be competitive in Europe.}

6.) 17 Nov 2018 09:52:09
Nice one Ed, appreciated mate.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

7.) 17 Nov 2018 10:07:50
Ed001, the report does say that Pulisic won't extend and Dortmund are looking to sell in 2019. (Which is in line with what Ed002 said earlier)

Could it be possible that we are looking to get this deal done early and pay a little extra? This would ensure less hassle if some other club decided to hijack the deal in the summer. Moreover, with Moses possibly gone in January, we might be left a little short of cover on the wings.

The way I see it, this is a win-win for both the clubs. (And Dortmund already have a lot of attackers from what I have seen)

{Ed001's Note - it is certainly possible mate, like I said I expected him to move next summer, so it might make sense now he is on the fringes. He always said he wanted to move to the Prem but he does want guarantees about game time. Not sure Chelsea would give him them. There is certainly interest there, but the reports do seem to be jumping the gun in the hope of being proven right later, because no one remembers the wrong guesses, just when they get it right early.}

8.) 19 Nov 2018 11:33:25
I have only see Pulisic play 3 or 4 times but I have been underwhelmed - at a reported £70m there are much better options out there.

9.) 20 Nov 2018 12:54:22
Yet another over hyped player whose performances this season have been average at best.
He certainly would not be an improvement on Willian and the transfer fee being mooted is ludicrous for a player unable to command a fist team place in a weaker league.
If we are to spend big money it needs to be on players who will substantially improve our first eleven .

10.) 22 Nov 2018 10:14:53
I think Pulisic is a little better than Jordan Sancho that some group of Chelsea fans seem to prefer. I feel his (Pulisic) not being in Borussia Dortmund starting eleven this season is cos of his refusal to extend his deal with the club. I don't think Pulisic is over hyped- he's a very good player imo maybe not worth £70m at the moment. He can replace Willian in the Chelsea squad.



18 Aug 2018 23:03:35
Was I the only one that thought Kovacic was Hazard at times the way he glided passed players. He’s going to be a steal if he continues like this. I hope the club make his move permanent. Hazard and Kovacic changed the game.


1.) 19 Aug 2018 00:44:02
No mate. I got confused too, couldn't tell the difference.

2.) 19 Aug 2018 01:02:32
Hahaha, I thought the same thing too. The best thing about him asides his skill is his ability to win back the ball.

3.) 19 Aug 2018 01:08:14
He’s quite the complete centre mid. Personally i thought he was a better all round midfielder than Kroos. Kroos is better on the ball but I do think he’s abit lazy and slow.

4.) 19 Aug 2018 07:09:17
KingFrank let's not start comparing players cos Kroos in on another level number.

5.) 19 Aug 2018 10:41:34
Obinna, you complain when people ridicule your opinion. Yet here you are telling someone else off for giving theirs.

6.) 19 Aug 2018 12:05:34
Please KingFrank, I am sorry I apologise, I don't mean it that way. I'm just caught up in the euphoria of the kind (beautiful) of football that Chelsea is playing. Sorry mate.



14 Jul 2018 21:41:05
And for the first time in 6 years I’m certain Hazard won’t be playing Chelsea blue again. It’s been coming, but I have to say it stings a bit yeah we could replace him and go on to win the league build a great side, but boy did I have a soft spot for that guy. Hope we go for two or three top players. Personally I’d go for two or three of the players on this list obviously the money we get for him could well be used to strengthen the squad as a whole:

Direct or similar replacements
Julian Brandt

Other positions to further strengthen the squad
Milinkovic Savic
Saul Ninguez

We go on, look at Liverpool after having lost Coutinho they spent his money wisely by investing in the squad not just a direct replacement.

Two from the first list and one of the three in the second for example would be great.


1.) 14 Jul 2018 21:56:44
Brandt / bailey should be option anyway to cover Pedro, and hazard leaving not few can come in, Asensio be good, maybe Dembele of Barcelona? Dybala, big name has to come in,

2.) 14 Jul 2018 22:24:41
Good post ELI. Eden Hazard is world world class and like you I'm so sad he might go. 1 (in particular) and 1 or more others on here have doubted his class but what do they know? Always negative. Eden, thanks for the memories and hope you stay.

3.) 14 Jul 2018 22:49:57
Also noted maybe signing few of these would want to keep him here?

4.) 14 Jul 2018 23:30:38
Hazard's words doesn't confirm 100% that he's gone - there's still some ifs. Bottom line is that Chelsea has to show more ambition in the transfer window to keep him or succeed without him.
Courtois' instagram response to Lukaku's post sees him call London his home- I wonder what he means by that.
All hope isn't gone, they might still stay or maybe Hazard alone could still stay on at Chelsea. Fingers crossed.

5.) 14 Jul 2018 23:34:14
I think we're pushing it a bit here about Hazard leaving. It's not as simple as Hazard saying or hinting he wants to go and then he gets sold. It's not easy to sign a star player from another club. Sandro, Koulibaly, De Gea, Griezmann etc should be examples.

It won't be easy for Hazard to leave, it's all good and well Hazard hinting many things, however Real Madrid will have to offer something silly for chelsea to even consider selling him, also how will they feel if we say we want cash + Asensio/ Isco It's not going to be easy at all.

We have signed Jorginho and I'm sure many others will arrive and it will be attacking football under Sarri which is what Hazard wants. Surely if Chelsea play hard ball, RM will back off then Hazard signs a new contract or does he risk waiting. Maybe future signings convince him to stay.

6.) 15 Jul 2018 00:35:21
Let’s hope he doesn’t but if he does we need two star wingers. Bailey should be here anyway to replace either Pedro or Willlan. If Bailey does come Griezmann or Martial has to be the other.

{Ed018's Note - pretty sure Griezmann has come out and said he will stay at Atletico}

7.) 15 Jul 2018 09:11:49
Yeah it was coming and I don't blame him. He could do with a new challenge. The key is to replace him wisely.

8.) 15 Jul 2018 09:37:17
Eden Hazard - “We knew already for a while that Sarri was going to become the new manager. If he's a good manager? If he let's me win trophies, yes. Dries Mertens has told me he's a good coach. We'll have to work hard. The Italian way, but we were used to that with Antonio too”

I wonder why the media missed this part out and why everyone is overlooking it!

9.) 15 Jul 2018 10:48:31
I personally think that's Eden saving face for if the move doesn't happen Shak, think we all know where he'll be playing if it's up to him and who can blame him? More money, more exposure and more chance of winning the big one! Although as mentioned there will be stupidly high pressure on him to fill one of the best players of all times boots.

10.) 15 Jul 2018 11:05:32
Gold post, and I agree Hazard will leave. To be fare to him he could have gone 3 years ago but was loyal to the club.
We will let him go but on current pricing he is around £180-200 million. Courtoise has got to be 40-50. Could have been more but isn’t he in his last year.
Club have put down a marker beating city to jorghinio.
App looks like rugani is coming"
Personally a big fan of dybala and they need to claw back some cash’s.
Interesting 2-3 weeks.

11.) 15 Jul 2018 10:37:03
Ed, do you think Chelsea would push to include Asensio in any talks over Eden? Surely Asensio wouldn't like spending another season as a non-starter, and Chelsea would need a top talent to replace Eden.

{Ed018's Note - I feel like it’s been mentioned somewhere on here in the past that Asnesio has been part of the discussions Chelsea and Real Madrid has earlier this summer when discussing Hazard.}

12.) 15 Jul 2018 13:37:16
Could be the compromise, pretty sure they value him at £150m or something but he is bound for great things.

13.) 15 Jul 2018 22:35:29
I think we need to remeber has Ed002 said on few occasion long ago Chelsea is not a club to stand in the way of any player who wishes to move, if the player is happy and the club get a reasonable deal the player is always allowed to go and rightly so no point keeping somone around who’s heart is elsewhere there only humans. It’s his dream to play for Madrid we’ve had 6 very fortunate years andnare going to make an astounding profit I should imagine if he goes now which I think. Most likely I can only wish him and Courtois nothing but the beat.

14.) 15 Jul 2018 22:39:14
Why don't Chelsea show 'that ambition' first by adding Leon Bailey to the squad first as it is now and see how it affects Hazard's decision to leave. Whether he stays or goes we must spend on quality players to be successful. If this is Hazard's way of making the club show more ambition in the transfer market, I am completely with him.

15.) 15 Jul 2018 22:43:54
Yea CFCShak, this quote actually gives us a bit of hope.




ELI's banter posts with other poster's replies to ELI's banter posts


10 Jan 2019 20:51:44
Interesting stuff on Jorginho, as most might know, like Standard and Turvey I find it hard to see what’s so great about our new number 5.

Let’s get things clear, I’m in no way saying he should be sold or saying he should be thrown to the bench all I’m saying is I don’t see why he cost so much, and why a lot of people think he is so effective to the way Sarri wants us to play. He does absolutely nothing that any other player that plays his role in other teams doesn’t do, more so when you look at teams that play possession football, Busquets is a good tackler and then distributes the ball quickly to players that make things happen. Busquets has as many passes as Jorginho but those who are interested in stats I beg you to share how many of his passes are positive passes. He sets the tempo to games, controls the midfield, and the game mind you he is not the quickest but he reads a game so well. How many abilities is that for one player but all you guys say for Jorginho is that he passes the ball and good under pressure ( Which is still debatable as we saw against spurs in the league) .

I’m not even going to judge him by goals cause that’s not his game but how are people going to call Kova out on his goal return when that’s not his game either, Kovacic is easily a better player than him and in my opinion would be better suited to playing Jorginhos role with Kanye and RLC in the cmf roles. I rarely have dogs at our players especially new signings but like Ed001 I don’t think Jorginho is what we needed, he was more suited to the slow tempo of the Italian league than here in England. His reading of the game in front of him is poor, his weight on passes on forward runs is poor. To be honest he has improved with his tackling and he might be adapting to the football in England but for me against teams that sit back especially at the bridge I think he hasn’t shown enough to warrant a spot in midfield.

Ps. I’m not trying to sound like a broken record would like to see what others think.


1.) 10 Jan 2019 21:30:38
ELI I think we should all agree to disagree on Jorginho and move on. We have had so many posts about him recently, the posts about him have all been good, some constructive and others less so. I've enjoyed reading different views on him from fellow Chelsea fans even though I disagree with the criticism of the player but that's my opinion. That doesn't mean I'm right and the critics are wrong. But we have had one too many debates about him.

Nevertheseless it was good to read everyones opinion about him as its kept this place very active which is good but let's be honest our opinions don't matter. The fact of the matter is that Sarri sees him as an integral component to his team and I will support the manager 100% as want him to succeed. Jorginho was fantastic at Napoli and will be the same at Chelsea.

I've been impressed with Chelsea this year and with a few new additions I am positive we will be back competing for the title soon. Hopefully we can sign a striker in January and things will start looking nice again.

2.) 10 Jan 2019 22:02:08
Fair enough Shak. Good banter. How do you see the game against Newcastle playing out?!

3.) 10 Jan 2019 23:18:12
Agreed ELI, I also think we should cut the Jorginho debate and bring it up again later on in the season. I hope to be eating my hat about him by then!

4.) 10 Jan 2019 23:32:57
It's a must win game for us ELI, I don't want to think about any other outcome other than a win lol. However, these days we are struggling to break down defensive units and it will be more of the same with Rafa in charge. I just hope our strikers score to take some of the pressure off Hazard who is marked so heavily in games. But I think it will be the false 9 tactics again which I'm not a massive fan of because Hazard is more dangerous on the left.

Everytime we seem to build a 5 point lead from Arsenal, the very next game we drop points which is a shame. We should have consolidated 4th positiin by now.

What are your thoughts mate?

5.) 11 Jan 2019 00:23:34
Eli we have to win, and that's the only outcome I can see. I do really hope that we play with the striker though and allow hazard CHO play on the wings as newcastle will sit deep in their defense.

Also i thought that we can try to play willian in 3rd midfield position, guy can definatelly shoot, has the work ethic and used to be not a bad passer couple of seasons ago.

6.) 11 Jan 2019 01:06:50
LRD, I’ve been saying that for years. Similar to di Maria at real, he can drive and has exceptional work rate. I’m surprised it hasn’t happened sooner for us.

7.) 11 Jan 2019 08:16:47
Same Shak, I see it being a tight game but think we’ll squeeze all 3 points. Hope Hazard and CHO play with Giroud as a focal point, plus CHO does whip in some brilliant crosses.

I’d like to see Emerson play, think this would be a perfect game to play him think he could also be effective offensively. 3 points is a must as two of our rivals in spurs and united play so we need to capitalize.



31 Dec 2018 13:27:28
I just saw a compilation video on Kovacic and his impact, I have to be honest I think we have to keep him, he’s only going to get better for me he is way better that Jorginho in every aspect of the game, yes every aspect. I think he and RLC and Kante are the three I’d like to see start a game together in midfield. Kovacic sitting in front of the defense. He is underrated yes he doesn’t score but let’s be honest very few players in the world who play that position have very good goal scoring records. Mordicus only had four for Madrid this year.

He is a must keep, get rid of Barkley and let Mount take his place.


1.) 31 Dec 2018 15:11:37
Jorginio isn't going anywhere and him and kovacic are too completely different players.

Kovacic is a great dribbler and can dribble through the midfield linking up to the attack. You can play him in jorginio position but he wouldn't be effective. Especially in the way Sarri wants that deep lying playmaker.

Jorginio is the commander of the midfield, he gets the ball moving from out the back, he invites the press which clears space for people like Kovacic an lotus cheek to exploit.

It's actually quite frustrating to see so many people disregard how important jorginio is for the way Sarri wants us to play. For you to want jorginio out the team, you basically are staying you don't want sarri's long term philosophy implemented into this team.

Just because he doesn't rack up goals and assists people think he's bad, stats like them don't really show how good he is.

2.) 31 Dec 2018 17:13:59
Totally agree with ELI. Kovacic in Jorginhos midfield position would work. He’s a better player by a country mile. Far better on the ball. Better athlete. Better defensively. Totally makes sense to me.
You can all moan as much as you want but Jorginho isn’t fit for purpose, his attributes don’t suit the premier league. You need to be athletic to make it in the premier league and unfortunately he isn’t athletic enough. He can’t play under the press.
Midfield 3 of Kovacic, Kante and RLC is our best midfield going forward.

3.) 31 Dec 2018 17:18:48
Mc1993 very nicely said mate, I agree 100% with your comments. I'm fed up and don't bother with all of these Jorginho haters. It was only a month ago that all of the pundits and fans were raving about him and saying his one of the best.

I mean the comparison here is literally a joke. Two totally different players, asking Kovacic to play deep restrics the players strength. This isn't football manager where you can put Willian as a left back or Morata as central defender.

4.) 31 Dec 2018 17:33:12
i don't agree with all the hate towards jorginho he's a very good player he deserves a bit more credit than he's getting.

5.) 31 Dec 2018 18:16:56
I'm sure I could find a compilation video for Moses which will show his a better player than hazard. YouTube hero.

6.) 31 Dec 2018 18:52:24
Nick he can't play under press? You clearly never watched Napoli under Sarri because that's how jorginio has always played under Sarri.

He's adjusting to a new league and has 10 over players who have never played the way Sarri wants or just aren't good enough.

7.) 31 Dec 2018 19:09:14
Mc1993 just ignore them mate. You won't be able to put your point across.

8.) 31 Dec 2018 19:58:04
i can't believe some1 is actually judging kovacic on a youtube clip/ highlight reel come on man what age are u 10. who judges a player off youtube that's just embarrasing to say he's better dan jorginho in jorginhos position because he looked good on a youtube clip hahahahahhahahahahahhaha. i no its a site were we all have our views and werw entitled to them for sure but u can probably get a video of morata or giroud on youtube an ul probably think guroud in particular is a world beater cause he scored a couple. of screamers.

9.) 31 Dec 2018 20:42:55
Not being funny magic but the way you’ve tried to spell half of that convo I’d think you were the 10 year old lol.

10.) 31 Dec 2018 20:45:10
And if pep got Jorginho you’d be drooling over him.

11.) 31 Dec 2018 21:55:02
Exactly Cretin, worst yet they would be cursing the Chelsea board for missing out on him. The new generation of fans are all about instant success and scout via YouTube.

12.) 01 Jan 2019 03:10:58
Magic, Eli isn’t judging Kovacic off a YouTube video he just stated he saw a compilation.

13.) 01 Jan 2019 10:04:51
ders compilation videos off every player in the league and im sure they all look great . kovacic is a nice player but he never scores he doesn't offer a whole lot for me. better dan cesc yes. better dan drinkwater an bakayoko yess. but wat does he offer?

14.) 01 Jan 2019 10:05:41
pardon the spelling king kante it was new years eve and i had a few coronas haha.

Regarding my post below, I’d like to say Thank you to Standard as you’re the only one that actually read and understood my post, I could have taken the time to reply but this wasnt Banter it’s just a whole bunch who read my post but didn’t understand a thing but all decided to use the word “YouTube in ever sentence, and quite honestly at this point I’m too happy it’s the new year to reply, that said Happy new year Ed001 (Legend) Ed002 ( Hope you’re well Eddy) Ed018 (Hope to see you post more often) you guys rock, wish you the best this year. And Ed’s 033 and 007 as well.

16.) 01 Jan 2019 13:30:17
Happy new year Eli.



19 Dec 2018 07:38:01
Hope we push for Isco, he would be a lovely addition to the team. Perhaps the only problem is where exactly would he fit in? On the right flank perhaps.


1.) 19 Dec 2018 08:54:47
Where kovacic is. City bound unfortunately.

2.) 19 Dec 2018 11:58:37
Why he’s been poor for Madrid? I’ve had enough of signing out of form mentally fragile players. Let’s sign leaders again who are warriors on the pitch not these ones who drop to the floor when they get touched like his best mate Morata.

3.) 19 Dec 2018 12:29:41
Like Scott Parker and noble or Wanyana or fellaini. We were lucky to have players like Lampard Ballack essien makele who were leaders to go with the likes of terry Cole carvalho Drogba, but they don’t make them like anymore, Isco is what Chelsea fans though kovecic was but Isco has the end product . Superb player and big players signing would encourage hazard to stay. maybe?

4.) 19 Dec 2018 13:23:40
Isco would be a brilliant addition to our team. He could play in any attacking position or even take the Kovacic role.

I doubt he is city bound, they have an abundance of star quality rotting on their bench. Silva, B Silva, Gundogen, De Bruyne, Sane, Sterling, Mahrez etc all fighting for positions. He would be taking a risk to go there.

Anyhow I wonder if Madrid will sell him and if he has anything to do with Hazard going the opposite way etc.

5.) 19 Dec 2018 14:26:42
I’d rather Asensio as any part of a Hazard deal. We’ll need another winger, if we manage to get Pulisic and Asensio, we’d be set for the next 5-6 years with pace and raw talent out wide. I like Kovacic, but I think real would need to give us more for Hazard.

6.) 20 Dec 2018 17:18:27
I think Isco would be a massive, massive risk. He is reportedly despised in the Madrid dressing room for his arrogance. Also, it is reported that he was offered to City last summer and Guardiola passed. I wouldn't touch him with a bargepole.

I’d play Kovanin Jorginhos position, he’s better defensively and just as good technically definitely better on the ball in my opinion. Then Kante and RLC in the two cmf rôles Hazard Giroud and Pedro.

Keep RLC, sign Kova and sell Barkley. Who agrees?


1.) 07 Dec 2018 15:31:19
Keep them all please.

2.) 07 Dec 2018 15:31:49
Keep them all. Barkley willing to shoot from distance, and a bigger goal threat than Kovacic.

3.) 07 Dec 2018 16:26:21
depends how much Madrid insist on for kovecic. Is he a £40m + player? Doesn’t score or create but good and tidy ok ball.

4.) 07 Dec 2018 16:36:28
I really like Barkley, for me he is the best option of all 3.

5.) 07 Dec 2018 18:18:56
Keep all three.

6.) 07 Dec 2018 22:18:32
kovacic hasn't impressed much since signing barkley has been better of the 3 so far . didn't see wolves game but rlc scored again so good on him. he always looks so lazy an uninterested do.

Loftus-Cheek’s work rate being questioned baffles me honestly 😂 he saves his energy for the right moments like a lot of top players. Against wolves he was by far our best player and his work rate was top notch.

8.) 08 Dec 2018 17:22:29
RLC was our best player? Apart from deflected goal what has he done?

Well Mart for our national team Fekir does play wide, but yeah he is more effective in a 10 role and it is his preferred role probably why he isn’t as effective in the national team.

Good point on Ericksen as well as Modric a lot of top teams thought he was lightweight before spurs bought him.

Fekir is the closest thing to Hasard the French league has had since Eden became blue. As a parisien and someone that follows the league. Trust me when I say Fekir is going to be a world beater.

Ps. I was glad when he wrecked PSG last season.

That’s actually a very good team plus wouldn’t cost that muc. We don’t need Ndombele however, we have RLC, Jorhinho though I’m not his biggest fan I think he’ll be decent beside the best central midfielder in the world beside him maybe Kovacic beside Kante would be good too.

Other than that, Good shout.

Not yet done G8 mate, hope we get it over the line from the little I saw of him in Roma and the review he’s gotten I think he’ll settle in just fine. Might turn out to be a superb signing and key player for years to come.

Hey Ed001 doesn’t that point more to the fact that it’s not Chelsea supporters. I understand if Ed002 has no interest in giving information on here but if these posters only post to insult Ed doesn’t that point more to the fact that it’s basically trolls and not Chelsea supporters?!


{Ed001's Note - no because a lot of them used to post on here under names I have long forgotten and took the hump after being deleted for being abusive.}

Same Shak, I see it being a tight game but think we’ll squeeze all 3 points. Hope Hazard and CHO play with Giroud as a focal point, plus CHO does whip in some brilliant crosses.

I’d like to see Emerson play, think this would be a perfect game to play him think he could also be effective offensively. 3 points is a must as two of our rivals in spurs and united play so we need to capitalize.

Fair enough Shak. Good banter. How do you see the game against Newcastle playing out?!
