Apparently Bernard has agreed to join us on a free after leaving Shakhtar - apparently.

J.

1.) 26 Jul 2018 22:30:03
is he any good?


2.) 26 Jul 2018 23:36:38
A squad filler - although it would seem a fair few teams were interested.


 

 

09 Jul 2018 23:38:42
BIG NEWS! Jorginho's mum / possible mum / someone who says they're his mum on Instagram / someone who say's she's his mum on Instagram AND who he follows / a hacker who has set up an account got Jorginho to follow them and is now claiming to be his mum - has followed Chelsea on Instagram.

Hope that cleared up the Jorginho story for you!

Obviously he is singing for Chelsea.

J.

{Ed033's Note - Which song is Jorginho singing? :)


1.) 09 Jul 2018 23:59:43
"Mama Liked the Roses" by Elvis Presley.


2.) 10 Jul 2018 08:58:35
It is his mum and his sister's official accounts which can only mean one thing. Good signings for the ladies team I think!


3.) 10 Jul 2018 11:25:11
It doesn't add up that Chelsea's looking to bring in Jorginho, Seri and Golovin into the same squad. Unless something has changed or something's missing.


4.) 10 Jul 2018 11:49:25
Mama we're all crazy now.


5.) 10 Jul 2018 13:23:00
Well Seri looks to have gone to Fulham. Maybe the Jorginho rumours have substance. However, I feel we will settle for Golovin in the end only.


6.) 10 Jul 2018 15:31:28
Tying Jorginho into a financial package with Sarri allows Abramovich not to lose face - so I think this rumour may have legs.


7.) 10 Jul 2018 16:38:07
Been a while Miss Darren Wood, how are you? Good to see you.


8.) 10 Jul 2018 16:44:26
DiMarizio stating that Seri is heading to Fulham. That would mean that Jorginho deal might happen.


9.) 10 Jul 2018 22:50:14
Good work J. Funny post.


 

 

10 Dec 2017 10:34:13
After only a handful of games Bakayoko is being written off and unfairly compared to Matic.

Matic wanted to go, he was going wether we signed Bakayoko or not. The press, and pundits, seem to think we signed Bakayoko and then decided we didn't need Matic anymore. Bakayoko has struggled in some games but not many players hit the ground running during their first Premier League season, certainally not when their as young as he is.

J.

1.) 11 Dec 2017 19:59:45
Very good shout J. The problem with Bakayoko seems partly down to concentration also the fact he has come from the French league which is nowhere near the pace and intensity of the premiership. He has shown some quality and a lot of strength. So I think play Drinkwater who is premiership ready and feed Bakayoko in.


 

 

16 Jul 2017 13:13:39
Don Balon in Spain are reporting that we are looking to sign Yannick Carrasco from Atletico Madrid.

Would be a signing that I'd love to see but can't see it happening, what with their transfer ban.

J.

1.) 16 Jul 2017 13:42:56
Old news pal.


2.) 16 Jul 2017 16:04:38
Ed- how credible is the news of Chelsea looking to sign Y. Carrasco?

{Ed018's Note - I'm unaware of any interest in Carrasco from Chelsea. Seems like about the last position we need to worry about strengthening at this point}


3.) 16 Jul 2017 17:27:08
Thanks Ed.


4.) 16 Jul 2017 18:27:46
Ed018 he can play through the middle too can't he? Signing him along with someone like (my personal preferred striker option) Belotti would add a lot to out attacking options.


 

 

13 Jun 2017 09:23:31
Fresh links to Insigne, apparently as a replacement for Hazard - should he join Real Madrid.

I wouldn't want him at the expense of Hazard but I do really like Insigne - real live wire of a player with great touch and movement. Adding him and/ or Bernardeschi to our attacking options would be a lovely bit of business.

Having said that everything points towards Insigne, and thankfully Hazard, staying put this summer.

J.

1.) 13 Jun 2017 10:31:23
Don't really rate Insigne myself.


2.) 13 Jun 2017 10:43:23
If Hazard leaves we will go for Douglas Costa.


3.) 13 Jun 2017 12:50:15
Bernardeschi for me should be a top target, we have to accept Hazard could go this year and if not now then it is probable he will leave next season, for me Bernardeschi has a lot on his locker and is an ideal replacement he is young and apparently Florentina need money and the guy has 2 years left on his contract in today's market getting this guy for £35-45 million would be extremely smart business.

Ed do you no if we have spoken to Florentina in regards to Bernardeschi? they probably wouldn't want to sell but would be a nice addition.

{Ed002's Note - Bernardeschi is in talks with another side.}


4.) 13 Jun 2017 20:38:28
Is it Juve that is in talks with Bernardeschi, Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


5.) 13 Jun 2017 22:06:11
Thanks for the reply ED002, real shame you can see why there interested though looks a good player.


6.) 14 Jun 2017 08:04:33
Thanks for that, Ed. Juve will get Orsolini and Schick already, do they really need every flippin Serie A player? Disappointing if we lose out to them : (.


7.) 16 Jun 2017 05:09:56
So Juve are going for Costa and Bernadeschi after already finalising Cuadrado. Are we any chance at all for Sanchez?

Some observations after two games.

It's natural that the press will be all over Kepa because of his price tag, as they were after Arsenal's first goal, but his seven year deal is a clear indication that a fair part of the record fee was based on potential. He will make mistakes.

David Luiz is too unreliable to play in a back two, Ampadou and Christensen are the future - and I'm not talking the distant future.

Forget England, our midfield has the potential to be the best in Europe. Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic as a starting three is balanced and has a bit of everything other than maybe the amount for goals you'd like to see. Barkley and RLC are great offensive options to have on the bench - this midfield looks great and will get better.

Speaking of RLC. I know Sarri said after the Arsenal game that he wanted two wingers on the bench, and would want two midfielders in other games, but RLC can play there. He's a better option there than Moses - surely Moses won't keep him out of the matchday squads much longer?

Morata scored! I really would like to see him prove me, and his other doubters, wrong and bang in 20+ goals this season - I'm fully behind him as a supporter. But the jury is still out.

Hazard is going to tear up trees this season. Resting him these first two games was the right move by Sarri. Looking forward to seeing him from the start soon, most probably with the captains armband.

J.

1.) 19 Aug 2018 10:38:56
It’s clear for me that Loftus Cheek just isn’t as good as we want him to be. barkley gets ahead of him and his not on bench. plus Cesc will be back so probably Barkley and Loftus left out, Barkley covered a lot of ground and pressed well. would Loftus do that. is it his game to press like that, I’d have kante Jorginho Kovacic as mid and bench would be Barkley and CHO instead of Moses., but remember there a lot of Europa games so Kepa will get more time. and personally I think he may of done better for first goal but I would blame him and his passing and composure was brilliant, Ampadu Christensen Loftus CHO Giroud Cesc Zappa will get playing time and league cup and early FA Cup so they will get time. What I will say and it’s not a negative about too 4 but the Europa league would be on par with top 4, think we really need to win that. So much competition and no easy games in league, morata will be firing now and will put little bet on that he gets a brace v Newcastle never Sunday.


2.) 19 Aug 2018 11:43:59
I’m not sure how I will feel if this happens this week but both Tammy and RLC could be sent out on loan.
Also Drinkwater but If I’m honest, I’m not fussed what happens to him.


3.) 19 Aug 2018 17:05:04
Drinkwater really needs to go, for himself as much as anything. Letting the other two go would leave us very short of a couple injuries happen.


4.) 19 Aug 2018 18:20:07
I agree J but I just can’t see Tammy or RLC getting many mins.

It’s too late really for RLC to go out on loan to Premiership team but I guess he could go to a European side but that’s probably doubtful.

Hudson Odoi call also strugg le to get games as things stand as well.

If we keep on winning it becomes harder to give these players Premiership playing time but I guess they can play all the cup games!


 

 

10 Aug 2018 16:28:07
I agree Batshuayi could have been our best chance at goals this season. But let's try and see a silver lining on his leaving - if, and it's still a big if, Tammy Abraham is ever going to make it at Chelsea then this isn't he year he'll do it.

Make the most of his opportunities, score goals in cup matches and force the hand of the manager.

J.

1.) 10 Aug 2018 16:52:38
*is the year he'll do it.


2.) 10 Aug 2018 17:11:02
Possible that hazard may play the striker / advanced role this season?

just a thought.


3.) 10 Aug 2018 17:37:19
It's not out of the question, but he has stated in the past that he doesn't like the role.


 

 

08 Aug 2018 22:17:37
Arrizabalaga and Kovacic coming in will probably be it for this window. But there is a fair bit of business to be done heading out of the door.

I would expect both Zouma (Everton) and Drinkwater (Leicester) to both be out of the door by the time the window closes tomorrow.

I also expect Bakayoko (AC Milan) to head out the door pretty soon. But a few others such as Zappacosta (somewhere in Italy) might well be gone before the end of the European window.

Giroud and Batshuayi can wait until a few games into the season to see how many mins they get before moving to a European club on loan if they, and the club, choose to.

I'm super excited about this season and the type of football we could be seeing at the Bridge, just have to be patient for the first few weeks.

J.

1.) 08 Aug 2018 22:29:05
possibly fekir also if that's true could be a late one.


2.) 08 Aug 2018 22:44:36
Ed said on another page that Chelsea had a lot of business left to do but had to sort GK situation out first before other business, does that mean with Kepa and Kovacic we still have maybe one deal to make? Fekir maybe?


3.) 09 Aug 2018 01:08:41
What site is the other new one Matt?


 

 

08 Aug 2018 17:29:04
Bakayoko was a Conte signing, now of to AC Milan to whom Conte remains linked - coincidence?

J.

 

 

03 Aug 2018 08:17:43
Re. a few posts about Kante and Jorginho playing in the same side.

If we play the same type of system as Napoli did under Sarri then we won't be playing with a defensive midfielder in the traditional sense. Jorginho will be a deep lying playmaker, he will have defensive responsibilities, almost like a sweeper for the midfield, but his main role will be to dictate the pace of our game. Kante will not be playing in his traditional defensive role either, he will be more of a disruptor pressing the opposition deeper and breaking their lines with gut-busting runs forward - this is a role where he, with his energy levels, could really excel.

I think Vecino will, if signed, be very much a squad player, mostly used to pack out the midfield when needed and see out games. This is a role I thought Bakayoko would fill but he is completely shot of confidence and really needs a loan back to France or Italy where he'll have more time in games to re-build his confidence.

J.

1.) 03 Aug 2018 10:08:43
Nice post mate, agree with it all.


2.) 03 Aug 2018 10:23:41
Bakayoko will be the backup of the backup- I guess, just can't explain what's happening to Bakayoko. Honestly before now I saw him as a player that can potentially replace Kante. He looks like he has given up and doesn't want to fight. I feel for him.


3.) 03 Aug 2018 11:43:42
The key issue is who will be the third midfield player because if it's Cesc we will have two players who don't track counter attacks.
I have hardly seen Jorghino make a tackle in three games something he will need to improve drastically .
I think we are going to have problems with no proven goalscorer and a weaker defensive unit than last season.


4.) 03 Aug 2018 12:38:12
Totally agree Turvey, it will be down to Barkley and Loftus-Cheek to step up, and into, the more advanced role.

I have been impressed with Barkley so far in pre season and he definitely has the edge at the moment, but needs to get match fit and I can see Loftus-Cheek coming more. and more into the team. If Loftus-Cheek applies himself he could be absolutely amazing in this team.

Overall I think we can expect a season not that dissimilar to Peps first year at Man City. W.


5.) 03 Aug 2018 12:55:15
I watched arsenal game at times we looked electric for me worries are. Midfield if Barckley can step up. The poor form of Bakayoko. Defensively I worry about luis. For most of the game he’s on it and fine. But he switches off then we have problems. Also very disappointed with Emerson thought he was particularly poor. I expected him to step up this year.
As for Morata he’s started how he finished last year. Lots of effort and no end product. He’s scores pen or any of the other 3 good chances we have and it’s game over.
So imo we need another striker, trouble is all talk is of bats and Gironde being sold. I don’t think Abraham’s is ready yet a bit to lightweight.


6.) 03 Aug 2018 15:11:34
I would agree with your example of a similar season to Peps first at City J. BUT they had Aguero scoring 20 in the league and 33 in all.
Despite that and all the other attacking talent they finished 3rd.


7.) 03 Aug 2018 19:06:22
Fantastic post J and not for the first time.
I obviously want us to be crowned Champions again but am viewing it as a translation season, so I will be happy ish with a top four finish!

The stories have all come from something the secret footballer put on Twitter. He's saying that the club will be sold to Jim Radcliffe for £2bn - the papers reported that a similar offer from Jim Radcliffe had been rejected around the time when the visa rejection had taken place.

He's also stated that Roman's taken residency in Jersey, making a £30m offer to buy a house there to relocate after the sale.

First off this Secret Footballer is a snitching rat who shouldn't be trusted, secondly it's on Twitter and when a story originates from Twitter it's fair to say that it'll be trash.

Oh, he said Pusilic to Chelsea is nine tenths a done deal too - on twitter.

I don't think the knee injury was seen as being that bad. Liverpool still wanted to do the deal but at a lower price due to the potential risk, Lyon wouldn't re-negotiate the price and they both walked away.

I suppose we'd be negotiating with that knowledge, be in a slightly stronger position.

I'd definitely rather stick with Morata and Batshuayi than sign Higuain.

His name keeps coming up, I don't think there's a proverbial snowballs chance in hell the we'll sign him, but the absolute best option for us, if we adopt the same system as Napoli, is Dybala.

Play him in a similar role as Mertens and he'd be amazing.

Higuain declined last year at Juventus, and he'll be thirty one in December. He has been a great striker, but he's not the striker we need right now.

"You guys that live in the UK told me that the Mirror is not to be trusted. That story emanated from the Mirror".

Oh yeah Obinna, don't believe it for a second, but I do think he would be a very good signing. Palace's record with and without him last season speaks for itself - to such a degree that I wouldn't see them accepting anything below £70m for him.
