A question for ED01 if I may. A lot of rumours circulating about Conte losing the dressing room following his treatment of Diego Costa and then David Luiz coupled with his lack of flexibility in training. Do you have any insight into the truth behind the rumours? Thankyou.


{Ed001's Note - there were a few issues with Luiz, where he was banished from the team after he complained about the defensive rotation. However he is not the issue, he is not the type to hold grudges and he does not have the ear of the right people. There has been a longstanding problem at Chelsea with certain players who go behind the manager's back to those above him, complaining about everything, which has done for a few managers now. The problem is that you have one player who has more power than the manager, and that always causes issues as the manager then loses control over the rest. So long as he is happy, everything goes well, but as soon as there is a sticky spell and he is not, you have issues.

This is circle of short term success followed by a need to change manager will continue until players are no longer the most powerful part of the club.}

1.) 05 Feb 2018 13:41:54
Is one of them players hazard?

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

2.) 05 Feb 2018 15:44:44
as evryone on here probably knows im no fan of conte but that is a disgrace that anyone should have to put up with being undermined like that at work
my view no one should be allowed that power at a football club
i have just gone off hazard in 3 seconds flat devastated
i hope we sell him now and he becomes another pawn in a big team like real like bale has become although he probably doesn't warrant it

im no fan of antonios tactics but hazard should take a look at himself
What has he got the cheek to moan about disgusted you know boys football has lost its working class soul
and shak i think your right the board should take a look at themselves leaving a manager out to dry like that is shocking
what gets me is why does know one say anything everything is hush hush even previous managers like jose say something he got you sacked
disgusted if i was there tonight id boo him and i WAS his biggest fan.

3.) 05 Feb 2018 13:48:12
Thanks ED01 for the insight. Makes sense as well and starts to explain quite a lot about what is happening/ has historically happened. Player power.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

4.) 05 Feb 2018 14:29:10
And how do you come to know this Ed please?

5.) 05 Feb 2018 14:48:15
I noticed a situation similar to the one before Mourinho's sacking. I'm very concerned the way our club is managed as some none footballing issues tend to always derail our season. Losing very good coaches to power play. The club must back the coaches and allow them control of their job which is the players.
I will be pissed if we let Conte also go for lack of backing as I feel he would have been a coach to build something for long term. Thought we had seen a Mourinho without his baggage. He's has only ask for he should, quality players but they continue to frustrate. Guardiola is doing well now just because he his desired players and not alternatives as Conte has.

6.) 05 Feb 2018 16:05:45
Ed might be far fetched but would hazard have a say on transfers
I. e if he said no to a certain player would the club think about it.

{Ed001's Note - he doesn't get consulted for that to happen.}

7.) 05 Feb 2018 16:10:44
Thanks for reply ed
What are your opinions on the matter what would you do.

{Ed001's Note - for me I think the key is to back the manager over the players, a bit like when Fergie took over at United. When the players turned on him early on the directors told them he was the manager and sold them, except for Bryan Robson, because Fergie wanted to keep him. They backed the manager totally.

If the club don't feel he is the right manager, then why appoint him in the first place? You certainly don't go listening to players who have their own axe to grind.}

8.) 05 Feb 2018 16:31:36
Thanks ed I agree not a fan of his tactics but what a mess CFC have got into
Be very hard to keep hazard now if they backed a manager but I'm sure he knows that.

{Ed001's Note - the alternative is a new manager every couple of seasons...}

9.) 05 Feb 2018 17:06:34
That's hard to read for any Chelsea fan. How players can be allowed so much power is beyond me. Following on from what has been said before, it's disgraceful that not only are players complaining about management behind the managers back but also taking out frustration on the fans by producing sub par performances. If they aren't happy then leave, the club is far bigger than any player.

10.) 05 Feb 2018 19:56:19
Tbh . the board should really look at themselves in the mirror and ask themselves how they have managed to give a player more power than the coach.

Forget Hazard having a say on transfers ed1, is there any chance that they could make Hazard our next player manager. At this rate they might aswel.

{Ed001's Note - I am sure he wouldn't want that, it is much easier to criticise than to actually do it yourself.}

11.) 05 Feb 2018 22:34:33
If this is the case, why not make a statement and drop these players but that aren't playing for the team and manager? Play Ampadu, Hudson-Odio.

12.) 05 Feb 2018 23:53:31
HES most likely only saying what’ we are all thinkiNG.



01 Jan 2018 08:54:54
Any of the EDS able to confirm that Ross Barkley is on the verge of signing for Chelsea? Any knowledge would be very much appreciated. Thankyou and Happy New Year to all on this site.


{Ed025's Note - he wants out of everton G8 and its a toss up between chelsea and spurs, which one he opts for is very much 50/50 mate..

1.) 01 Jan 2018 12:17:14
Does anyone actually want Barkley at Chelsea? I get he's English and we do need more English players, I for one would much rather go for west hams Antonio.

2.) 01 Jan 2018 11:53:39
Thankyou ED025 Much appreciated.

{Ed025's Note - no probs mate..

3.) 01 Jan 2018 13:00:44
At very least he is a threat from outside the box, a player who shoots from distance, plus for the few approx 10-15m is mega cheap even for a squad player. conte got a lot out of a young pogba maybe could help RB kick on too.

4.) 01 Jan 2018 13:06:00
I agree he’s an okay player who’s barley done anything for the best part of year yet thinks he’s better than Everton and good enough for spurs and Chelsea. I’d love to see him fall flat on his face.

5.) 01 Jan 2018 14:20:16
would be a decent option for a three man midfield

Kante Drinkwater Barkley

Bakayoko Kante Barkley

Kante Barkley Fab ( for lesser teams)

or can play off the forward if needed
he's a player if/ when he has confidence and bit of freedom he can run/ cause problems for defences and chip in with the odd goal.

decent buy and nice to see a English player at the club but my issues is we have a similar player In RLC tho.

6.) 01 Jan 2018 15:46:07
Think every Chelsea fan would be relieved to see him sign for Spurs :-P.

7.) 01 Jan 2018 16:33:07
id take him at that cheap price conte could make a player out of him but let's be honest if he wanted to sign for us he would of done in the summer when we bid for him he's off to spuds.

8.) 01 Jan 2018 16:45:46
I absolutely don't think we need him, and as a non-Englishman, I think he's yet another case of English press over-hyping their own players. In my eyes, at least, he isn't a player that would offer anything we couldn't get from RLC, and I'm more than certain that we would be able to find plenty players that can add some goals from midfield that do not cost 15 million pounds, if they were to get the same freedom a player like Barkley would require to do so.

9.) 01 Jan 2018 17:38:03
He’s young and on his day he brilliant give him ago around better players he be good for us my opinion.

10.) 01 Jan 2018 18:10:55
I wouldn’t spurs getting stronger like I say on his day yes fab just wants time.



08 Dec 2017 19:08:49
Great work by the club in giving Charly Musunda a new 5 year deal. Star in the making.


1.) 09 Dec 2017 17:00:52
I agree.



29 Mar 2017 21:59:04
Transfer gossip bollocks will start soon. So I will get in early, Keep Hazard, Diego, Courtois and the rest. Add 3 or 4 and away we go. My previous posts say who I feel we will sign but I have not mentioned Sanchez as ED02 has not mentioned him being linked with us. must admit it would be nice though. ED02 are we dreaming?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of Chelsea speaking with Arsenal about him.}



02 Mar 2017 09:29:45
I think Djibril Sidibe would be a good signing in the summer, can cover both left and right wingback positions. what do you think ED02?


{Ed002's Note - Djibril Sidibe was wanted last summer by Arsenal and Monaco are aware of interest remaining from Arsenal and interest from Chelsea. There is someone very keen at the club but there is someone else is concerned that he drifts out of position regularly.}

1.) 05 Mar 2017 12:06:08
Thanks ED02.

{Ed002's Note - He is also on the list of players that Manchester City are considering as a left back.}

18 Mar 2018 23:22:45
Well done Boys, another domestic cup semi final this season. A poor season by our high standards, 5th in the league, Last 16 of Champs league, Semi's of league and FA Cup. Lol😁😁😁😁😁😁 Beat Southampton and another final. Love this serial winning even when it is not quite right. Listen to G8 and read positive comments. (or have a quick shank in the shed with Matt Martin and C1955) lol 😁😁😁😁.


1.) 19 Mar 2018 07:26:04
G8: You and Bayakoko have so much in common. Try hard but just not convincing. Should be in the top four, probably second, should have been in the last eight of the CL, should have been in the League Cup final and 'should' be in the FA Cup final; give us a clue whether your comment or mine signifies 'serial winning'? Neither. Conte's tactics have been found wanting, transfers have disappointed, stars have been inconsistent and we face another upheaval before next season. The only stars are the fans who turn out week in, week out.

2.) 19 Mar 2018 11:22:03
Hahaha fingers crossed we get 4th and into the final and win it. Hold the open top parade as we haven’t done anything yet, love the high standards now with celebrating and gloating as were 5th and in a semi final haha.

3.) 19 Mar 2018 11:58:08
You are right of course Matt we have not won anything yet but we are still in the hunt for a trophy despite our overall poor season. My point being, despite all the woes of this season we are still there or thereabouts and a cup final victory would be a good way to close off this season. Twice premier league champions in the past 3 seasons and we shall build again in the summer now knowing what is needed to compete with Man City. 😁😉.

4.) 19 Mar 2018 12:55:31
G8: You got a tick from me for that one. Not so emotional and I agree with you. The worry should be, when will the manager be in situ, what is the transfer arrangements as he will want some in, some out and of course will we retain those we want to keep? Hazard is the big question mark, he is 28 next birthday and if he is determined to go to Spain then he cannot leave it much later.

5.) 19 Mar 2018 13:50:29
What would people prefer FA cup or champ league football next season? I love the fa cup, just feel with semi’s st Wembley too it takes the buzz away, champ league football with its money and attractiion for players?

6.) 21 Mar 2018 18:14:14
CL without a doubt.



05 Mar 2018 22:24:23
You know me, always half full and positive. Long time fan and don't have much time for Johny come lately's. No time for trolls either. Must say though I'm a bit down right now as I guess most real fans are. Roman is a serial winner and will put it right as he tends to do but I must question why this cycle of win the league then struggle then win the league etc. ED01 made a good point in saying we need to find our style, our image. We have a habit of wanting attacking football but employing defensive managers in Jose, Rafa and Conte. I would like Carlo back or a manager who plays on the front foot. The Napoli manager would be decent. Conte must go after yesterday and all his recent moans about transfers. After all, he wanted Morata the donkey. The club wanted to keep Diego. He wanted Bakayoko, we wanted Matic. He hated Batsy, Batsy scores goals. He likes Drinkwater we prefer RLC. He plays Hazard as a 9 . Taxi time. Good thing is though our history tells us we win the league next Season. In ROMAN we thank.


1.) 06 Mar 2018 08:30:19
I agree g8 but I would like a up and coming forward thinking manager with his own style to put his stamp on a team
Like pep klopp or pottchetino give the club a identity going forward build a team that's his and stick to it.



04 Mar 2018 15:53:42
Very sad news about Davide Astori, my thoughts with his family. Football doesn't even matter with such sad news. Forza Chelsea.


1.) 04 Mar 2018 17:33:06
very sad to hear.



28 Jan 2018 22:01:43
I was at the game Today and must say the whole crowd was fully behind Conte. Sung his name throughout and really positive. Was nice to see and hear that.


1.) 28 Jan 2018 22:30:48
Couldn’t think of anything better than the board going to conte and saying. we don’t like your public digs at us it’s not professional but we agree we’ve not done well enough let’s settle this and move forward with new 3yr deal . There’s the dream and the nightmare is luis Enrique next manager,

2.) 28 Jan 2018 22:56:04
Most of the fans at Chelsea games are always behind Conte. It's a minority of people on social media platforms that have been calling for Conte's head. Even when we were at our worst for some time under Mourinho people still sung his name and backed him. If you have a connection with Chelsea fans as a manager they'll back you no matter what 👍.

3.) 29 Jan 2018 00:11:06
I have always said Conte is the most important cog in our team. Yes his tactics have been found out but with new quality players it will be harder to handle us. I have been to a few Chelsea games and have watched all and its obvious how much he is appreciated by the fans.

If he does leave then for me it has to be Maurizo Sarri.

4.) 29 Jan 2018 10:15:59
CFCShak sorry but what a sh*t are you talking. You are the first one of Conte out brigade and now you saying you always thought he is most important cog.

You are chelsea version of Raver.

5.) 29 Jan 2018 19:44:43
My discontent has never been with Conte. Its with the board.



22 Jan 2018 03:40:25
Oh dear CFCShak and you as well gola! Why do you support Chelsea? You both seem so sad and unhappy. Spend all your time slagging the club off. I have been on this site for a number of years as G8 and Jose knows best before that and can remember some great banter with people like Melbourne, Kiwi Pete, Eli and more recently Jackson and others. People who had opinions but didn't just come on here posting one negative post after another. If you feel that bitter about the club go and support someone else and do the rest of us a favour .


1.) 22 Jan 2018 08:15:05
I can see both sides really. I agree with you G8 I try not to be negative, although get a bit carried away whilst the game is on. I do think the club are in a good position at the min of course I would like us to be closer to city. Some of the names we have been linked with are silly so can see some peoples frustration but I do believe most if these rumors are false. let's try to all get on lads we all love the same club and no matter who we sign we will still be supporting Chelsea.

2.) 22 Jan 2018 11:25:43
i support my club to the hilt not a manager who doesn't even want to be here that's the difference. hes been sulking like a spoilt child since the summer and doesn't even deny he's going in the summer.

why do you think the club didn't give him a bigger contract just upped his wages.
i don't see pep sulking because there is players he can't get, sanchez is he now wallowing in a cloud of self pity no.
jose always sulks,nklopp has just lost his best player is he sulking no, he's even more positive.

pocchetino has the tightest budget and board in top six is he walking around sulking , no. even grandad wenger look at the situation he's in is he moaning about it no
if this was a player getting on like this he would be hounded out of the club basically saying im off after this year because i can't get my own way.

i don't like the way we play its so negative and before you say it won us the league last year why with basically the same players is it so crap this year
palace burnley Leicester man city liverpool, brighton, bournemouth, southhampton, everton, roma, west ham have all made us look ordinary this year.

city and liverpool granted but the rest come on we are chelsea, now face Barcelona in the champs league when we should of won the group and be facing shakter
all this talk he's the best thing that's ever happened to chelsea why because he jumps up and down on the touchline.

hoddle, gullit and gianfranco carlo jose roberto have been the best thing that happened to our club in recent years as has tony to some extent to he should be added to that list to but not the best far from it.

i love chelsea but i hate the way we play, at the minute, tactically he's been found out, doesn't want to be here fallen out with board, doesn't care if a only world class player isn't happy or not i rest my case.

in summary i love cfc and the future is very bright i agree and my cuppeth overfloweth at the prospect of what could happen.
my point is i don't like conte anymore and i don't think he is the right manager to take us forward i find it disrespectful to publicly blame the board in when you have known the setup before you enter the job.

i don't want over 30s like bonnucci vidal and sanchez taking mega money at the end of there careers and i agree with the clubs stance on that look what happened to cole lamps terry ivan cech so why go backwards.
my cuppeth overfloweth and cfc adam and G8 love you really its all about individual perspective and cfcshak keep up the good work mate.

3.) 22 Jan 2018 12:18:36
Everybody has different opinions. Not all of us agree with one another but everyone has the right to their opinion about OUR club and nobody should be justyfing why they support Chelsea just because there opinion is different.

I respect your opinion Gola even though I actually do take a liking in Conte. I think his a great manager. I never liked the Jose setup and never will. His tactics won us titles but i would rather watch paint dry than watch Man Utd these days.

4.) 22 Jan 2018 12:18:41
We play negative football? Huh.!?! What the f**k you watching?
Klopp - doesn’t moan? He’s spent the transfer on players HE wants - Big difference to Contes situation.
Wenger - doesn’t moan? Hmm again not sure what you’re on about, he’s always moaning about this and that. And the fact that Sanchez went to United for the money! Oh and guess what. he buys the players he wants too! There’s a pattern emerging here.
Pep - same as above. He said last year that city needs to spend money on players. And guess what. they signed players HE wanted.
Jose - always moan no matter what’s. But is getting the players he wants at United.
Tactically found out? Yet we’re unbeaten in 14/ 15 games. Yes we’ve dropped points to mediocre teams but aren’t all clubs doing that? Didn’t City draw with Palace, didn’t United draw with Southampton? Burnley? Leicester? But nope it’s just Chelsea dropping points apparently. 🙄. I’ll say this again and again and again until it clicks with some of you. if we had a striker yes Morata with full confidence, I am 1000% sure we would be a lot closer to City then united are. But because the team are low on confidence we are not! THAT IS ALL! We’ve kept clean sheet, after clean sheet. We’ve made chance after chance. (Look at he 2-2 draw with Arsenal for the best example! ) but haven’t had the player to put the ball in!

We are playing more games this year, last season. We had nearly a weeks rest between games. That makes a HUGE difference.

We’ve a striker who is slowly getting used to the prem, last year we had Diego - again another massive change! Name me the last striker who hit the ground running and continued it throughout the first season? Wasn’t Diego, Didier, but they came good in the end!

So yes In my eyes we are not having a bad season at all. Still think we can get second place, we can certainly win the Carabao Cup, have a good chance in the FA Cup (you got to be in it, to win it! ) and Champs League - I’m quietly confident we can beat Barcelona. With the way Conte sets us up, we can cope.

Things aren’t as bad as they seem. Think some people just pi**ed because we’re not being linked with the TOP names. But with Antonio off in the summer, it doesn't help shelling out millions for players that the new manager might not want!

5.) 22 Jan 2018 13:13:57
Correction. Diego hit the ground running straight away mate. Don't disrespect the guvnor lol.

6.) 22 Jan 2018 13:29:42
So did Alvaro but has he kept it up? Did Diego keep it up? Nope, that’s what I’m saying!

7.) 22 Jan 2018 14:48:41
since we won at toon in december we have only played arsenal leicester and everton in the top half of the table lost to west ham who were bottom,1 we didn't score against leicester even though they had a man sent off for 30 mins
didn't score against Everton who have been woeful this year and arsenal we drew and there the worst team in top six arguably.

bournemouth had more possession at the bridge in the Caraboa cup than us yes BOURNEMOUTH. we scraped a win against Swansea who were 19th at home and Southhampton two shocking teams. we drew at home to the worst team in our group champs league no other team conceded to them at home in group stage.
we were shocking away at Roma and got lucky at home.

then the two absolute classics against norwich first game we were shocking
second game yes Norwich got lucky but they played every bit as good as us in that game and deserved a draw and we had our best team out for arguably 40 mins in that match and couldn't score.

we played city at home and we got played off the park he didn't even play a striker
Liverpool played off the park got a fluky goal.

if Leicester had a decent finisher they would of been 4 0 up at half time. if Norwich had a decent finisher they would of scored more than 1. if Brighton had a bit of luck they would of had 2 pens a wonder save against them and they hit the post and bossed us for 40 mins.

The striker isn't the issue your basis is on 1 guy missing sitters against arsenal they missed sitters to, and bats confidence is totally shot why because the manager has shown absolutely no faith in him whatsoever.

as you said strikers play on confidence and by not playing him when morata was injured at the beginining of season shows him exactly what conte thought of him
im not saying bats is the answer but the guy scored the goal to win the league then he gets treated like a dog the following season bad man management. we are playing rubbish end of and a chance against Barcelona lol.

our tactics invite teams on to us and Barcelona are arguably the best in world at that when teams press us high up field we get found out i. e Roma city Liverpool we were bang average. everything goes wide to Alonso or Moses our midfield has no influence on the game going forward its left to Moses and Alonso to somehow get it down the wing to hazard to get up the pitch and Kante and Bakayoko to sit tight in front of back 3.

i cannot wait to see barkley i think he's a fine talent but were will he play
i have no doubt chelsea will turn it around adam but i in my humble opinion i believe conte who is leaving isn't the man especially if the players think the same
this isn't personal just my opinion.

we aren't playing well and haven't for some time i don't want to be negative TROLL just airing my views and facts don't lie. we have been bang average for the quality of our players all season and the buck for that sits with the manager.

hazard is amazing. i think Rudiger Christensen have been fantastic and next year after a full season will be formidable. Morata jury is out he falls over to much and yes i read your previous post on that. Alonso, i think is a good squad player along with Moses but they wouldn't be my first choice.

Fabregas Cahill need to move on.
Kante is brilliant and breaking up play.
Bakayoko will in my opinion prove everyone wrong and be a Yaya for us first half against united he was immense.
Willian and Pedro good seasoned pros.
Azpi the most reliable player in the league bar none.

cfc adam and G8 it would be boring if we all agreed wouldn't it?

8.) 22 Jan 2018 15:08:10
Maybe the players conte wants are Carroll crouch Barnes type and the board are not having it? lol.

9.) 22 Jan 2018 17:21:56
Hi guys. I rarely post but this is a great banter you just having. I am on here everyday and I think this is the first time since the last horrible transfer window that I have seen an actual disscussion between yous. I absolutely love it. By the way does anyone still use live page when the game is on? It seems dead. Anyways keep up the good work readers and Ed's.

10.) 22 Jan 2018 18:55:24
Thanks Maat, I go on live chat.

11.) 22 Jan 2018 21:45:50
Its how it should be. No need to get personal. We all Love our Chelsea and want the best for the club. If only Ed002 would come back.

12.) 22 Jan 2018 23:02:30
Agreed Adam that's a first lol

13.) 23 Jan 2018 06:01:26
Agreed gola KTBFFH 😁.

I still can't understand why we let a genuine goalscorer in Batsy go out on loan. Morata is simply not good enough and I think he will be off in the Summer. Got to say Lukaku was the player Conte wanted and a shame we missed out on him. On a brighter note it was great to see Arsenal thrashed in the Cup Final😁😁😁😁.

Thanks for bringing me into your discussion gola and CFC. The reason I put a positive spin on things is due to seeing the bigger picture. As I have mentioned before Chelsea is in pretty good shape both on and off the pitch with lots of recent success and that will continue. I don't buy in to all the rumours about Crouch etc and prefer to wait for the club to announce signings like Ross B, who might prove to be a sensational piece of business. Sadly the only person who could give accurate information was ED02 and when that happened the mood on here was more positive as it gave genuine fans hope of what might be. The BS on twitter and papers like the daily mail just seem to fuel negativity. I do agree Conte seems to have issues with the board and also the board with him and that might be affecting performances but equally it could be fatigue as he only seems to play the same 14 or 15 players. Time will tell. As for spending huge amounts on players like Sanchez even Man City bulked at that! Also, do we know who shall come in? May still be a good window yet, and as I say RB might just be a little gem. Anyway, We all want the best for our club and whether you can put a positive spin on it or not let's agree to disagree and hope we make top 4 and win a cup this season. Best wishes.

You are right of course Matt we have not won anything yet but we are still in the hunt for a trophy despite our overall poor season. My point being, despite all the woes of this season we are still there or thereabouts and a cup final victory would be a good way to close off this season. Twice premier league champions in the past 3 seasons and we shall build again in the summer now knowing what is needed to compete with Man City. 😁😉.

Frank. You will find he is probably our most consistent forward. Does not go missing and would get into most top 6 sides. Aside from the sad time he lost his Mum.

Why on earth would you want a RW player Frank when we have one of the best around in Willian? Agree with you though that a return to a back 4 in a 4-2-3-1 is needed. Azpi at RB, Rudiger and Christensen at CB and Alonso or Emerson at LB. Ampadu or Luiz next to Kante in the 2 with Hazard the 10 behind Batsy or Morata or Giroud. Willian at RW and for me Hudson-Adoi at LW. Give him his chance. Ross B could also play the 10 with Hazard on the left. We are actually quite close to being a very good team.

How bad are Arsenal and have you seen the empty seats? People on here worry about us but that club are in serious decline. Spurs are streets ahead of them now. Don't hear much from Dags anymore either. Always thought he only came on here to gloat but when it went against Arsenal would disappear. Wenger has ruined them. 😁😁.

Lambo, you make the point that the club has not spent huge amounts on the very top players and you may be right (or not of course if you consider what we spent on Morata)! We have bought some dross as well but what club doesn't? The key is buying the right player not always the most expensive! I saw someone describe Ross Barklay as 'middling'! give the guy a chance! Man City were ready to pay huge amounts for him before his injury so we might just of bagged a bargain there as we did with the likes of Azpi etc. The bottom line is in that 4 or 5 year period you talk about we have won the premier league twice! Something I guess anyone under the age of 30 and supporting Liverpool could only dream about lol😁😁.
