Chelsea have confirmed the signing of Xavier Mbuyamba on a contract until 2023. He will join the development squad. Good prospect in fairness.

1.) 20 Aug 2020 19:28:04
Really looking forward to seeing him play with the development squad. Hope he'll feature in a couple of cup games too unless he goes out on loan.

2.) 22 Aug 2020 21:50:54
I look forward to seeing him play too could be an exciting prospect.

Chelsea in talks for Dries Mertens according to DiMarzio. not sure if there is any truth to it though.

1.) 29 Jan 2020 14:42:55
Would you have time to comment on our interest in Mertens and if it has a chance of being concluded?

{Ed002's Note - Dries Mertens is a player that Chelsea have considered but only want him to the summer and have been told the asking price - which for a player who is 32 and out of contract in the summer is ridiculous and it makes no sense for the player to move now rather than negotiate a lucrative pre-contract.}

2.) 29 Jan 2020 19:47:44
Lovely stuff. Cheers Ed002 for cutting through the bull being posted on social media today. Much appreciated.

3.) 29 Jan 2020 22:46:51
Ed any other names of strikers we could go for.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing beyond what has been said as far as I know at the moment.}

4.) 29 Jan 2020 22:53:43
Many thanks for cutting through the nonsense again ED002 always appreciated.

5.) 30 Jan 2020 09:33:27
I take this as a positive . i feel that we already have a clear target for the summer window and don't want someone to come in beyond that period.

Dries Mertens / Cavani would have been perfect till summer but if we can't get either then its not worth spending this window.

6.) 30 Jan 2020 09:49:10
Mertens would be good buy, can cover either Wing or Striker Position.



30 Jul 2017 19:33:47

Would a club generally negotiate for there number one target in a certain position then move to the next if uncussesful or would they negotiate simultaneously for targets in the same position? Forgive me if that makes no sense! I quite enjoy your insite into how transfers actually work, it's fascinating actually.

{Ed002's Note - You don't try to negotiate to buy players for the same position at the same time but you do establish if it is a viable opportunity or not. Once that is established you figure out some sort of plan.}



30 Jul 2017 15:12:39
Matic deal completed.

1.) 30 Jul 2017 15:41:32
For the reported fee it's a good deal. Read a while ago that Conte was told he needs to sell to buy, don't buy into that but it would make sense with our slow dealings in the market. Not trying to come of as a moaner but our squad is soo thin and with even Conte taking digs at Chelsea about our transfer business and our last two games despite being pre-season games, the team needs improving. Aren't many realistic options out their that improve our starting 11 anymore. Just hope Conte gets good enough players, his words of late haven't gotten many Chelsea fans hopeful for the new season.

2.) 30 Jul 2017 16:26:43
There's nothing good about it. He brought dominance to Chelsea's midfield.

3.) 30 Jul 2017 17:04:22
Yes, Matic appeared to be getting back to best last season - though several on here think that he is past his best and too slow - and that we have sold him to United hurts. I am hanging on to ed 002's advice not to worry, that more deals will be done, but right now our squad seems even thinner than last year and we have the ECL as well as EPL this season.

{Ed018's Note - Kante did a lot of covering for Matic. He's still a solid player but he can't be counted on to cover much ground. He will be good in a 3 man midfield playing the holding role. He will struggle a little bit in a 2 man midfield}

4.) 30 Jul 2017 17:18:37
CM is down to just 2 fit players now. And we have Spurs and Everton in August. We could be in trouble.

{Ed018's Note - and those are matches, especially the one against Spurs that Fabregas will struggle in}

5.) 30 Jul 2017 17:21:36
Ed018 can we have little update on transfers, tried searching posts and really don't want to pester 002,

{Ed018's Note - nothing has changed at the moment to the best of my knowledge}

6.) 30 Jul 2017 17:28:39
Thanks for comments Ed018, appreciated.

7.) 30 Jul 2017 18:19:37
Sounds like we'll be after another cm.

Matic was great, but not complete. Bakayoko is an upgrade.

Renato Sanchez is feeling like a possibility and weren't we in for a young Russian that was recommended by Leonard Slutzky?

{Ed002's Note - Golorov.}

8.) 30 Jul 2017 18:30:29
Thought that was Golovin?

{Ed002's Note - His sister.}

9.) 30 Jul 2017 18:01:42
Exactly, Ed018. Fabregas will struggle with the bigger teams giving him no space and constantly pressing the midfield. Kante struggles with that as well. Plus Kante gets massively exposed because Fab can't cover people in any way.

Holy hell, it's going to be tough.

10.) 30 Jul 2017 19:19:35
Plenty of time to go. Selling Matic is good business. That's money I'm sure will be reinvested in the squad. Now is not the time to worry. We still have plenty of time to bring body's in. I think we have bought well so far. Bar Costa we so far have a stronger squad that what won the league last season (granted a bit thin now we have more games) The positive thing also is that we are still looking to bring in 3-4 players. If we can get another CM and cover/ starters for the WB positions we will be laughing.

11.) 30 Jul 2017 19:31:59
With a month to go we need players bedded in and the longer we take the more teams will hold out for top money. My biggest worry is our vulnerability to pace in defence. I know we are training and other teams were ahead of us but we looked like cart horses against Bayern and Inter and several teams exposed us last year.

12.) 30 Jul 2017 19:39:11
If we go get Alex Sandro and AOC, that should address the lack of pace in our back line.

13.) 30 Jul 2017 20:56:38
WE can only hope that selling Matic means that suitable cover on its way. Of course the problem with saying this sale is a good deal (even if to Man Utd? ) is whether the money brought in can be used to buy addition/ s of sufficient quality.

14.) 30 Jul 2017 22:06:35
Matic still a CFC player as i type this i think.

{Ed018's Note - he's as good as gone}

15.) 30 Jul 2017 22:33:55
Confusing to see how many think we're stronger than last season. Morata suits our system more but he is no way better than costa imo. Bakayoko may be slightly better than Matic but Matic has gotten a lot of unnecessary stick from our fan base and is not as bad of a player as many say. All that's happened is we've lost depth. I know we'll get that back this window i just hope it's the right depth and some improvements to our starting 11.

16.) 31 Jul 2017 07:27:11
God help Chelsea if Matic leaves a someone doesn't come in.

Ed please any good from anywhere- no matter how small.



19 Jul 2017 12:54:17
Also Di Marzio saying deal done between city and Madrid for Danilo.

1.) 19 Jul 2017 13:05:37
That just makes me think we are definitely getting Danilo.

2.) 19 Jul 2017 13:46:10
Why would Danilo go there though? City have just spent a world record amount on Walker, so it's extremely unlikely imo that he's going to start in front of Walker. Which in that case I'd rather be second choice in Madrid than second choice at City. With us it's very different. Moses isn't a RWB despite the fact that he played very well there last season (and I expect him to continue in that role) and we didn't spend an extortionate amount of money on him. So the challenge of usurping the starting berth from Moses is a lot easier task.

3.) 19 Jul 2017 13:49:02
Danilo wants his place back in the Brazil team. He's not going to get that on the bench at Citeh.

4.) 19 Jul 2017 14:21:52
Haven't a clue lads I'm just telling you what he said. Hopefully he has some sense and doesn't go but money talks I guess.

5.) 19 Jul 2017 15:37:29
In current market £30m if fantastic value for a player of his quality. One of the best full backs in the world and would fit perfectly into wing back role. I hope we can still get this over the line.

6.) 19 Jul 2017 15:41:12
Never really rated Danilo but would've liked to see if Conte could've gotten him back to his best. Don't know what other targets we have available at the RB position, Aurier would be a good shout or Ricardo Periera? . Danilo is still possible i guess but with our squad soo thin atm we're really desperate to get new players in.

7.) 19 Jul 2017 16:14:21
Sky now reporting that a deal has been reached. I'm honestly surprised. guess the pay rise is worth swapping a place on the bench at Real for one at City.

8.) 19 Jul 2017 17:06:27
Danilo to Chelsea is more feasible. If we can bag both Danilo and Morata, then may be the EPL trophy is in site.

9.) 19 Jul 2017 17:10:06
going from reals bench to city is pointless what a waste for the lad he's obviously only money driven. wpuld love if chelsea matched the offer to see what he would do.

10.) 19 Jul 2017 17:31:56
I would suspect Danilo may be used as LWB aswell as back up for walker.

Other than him I can't think of anyone we have been linked to?

{Ed002's Note - No, they are buying a LB or two as well.}

11.) 19 Jul 2017 18:17:14
We should Hijack the mendy deal!

12.) 19 Jul 2017 20:29:40
JCFC, City are likely to get Mendy as far as I'm aware, so even if he's utilised as a LB/ LWB, he's still going to be riding the bench a lot.

13.) 19 Jul 2017 18:13:36
Thanks Ed.
They are really serious.

14.) 19 Jul 2017 18:22:26
Thanks for the clarification ED. You know your rich when you can spend roughly 80 million on 2 RB's. I'm sure we have other targets in mind other than Danilo.

20 Sep 2020 19:32:21
Can anyone tell me about Mendy as I've never seen him play? What type of keeper is he? Is he better than Kepa (mistakes aside) are we upgrading or is he a stop gap?

Thanks in advance, oh and please no Kepa hate. I'm sure he's beating himself up enough and doesn't need us doing it.

{Ed0666's Note - if Kepa tried beating himself up he’d miss his face when punching himself.
Mendy is commands the area wonderfully well, is a very good shot stopper and is super comfortable with the ball at his feet. I’d say he’s a definite upgrade and will clearly be you’re main keeper.

1.) 20 Sep 2020 19:53:50
Good win today 0666, won’t go into all the negatives, but will mention werner, 93rd minute and he was still running non stop, created a pen out of nothing, seems to have such a good attitude. I’m excited to see him with pulisic and ziyech and havertz running into the spade he leaves going wide,

{Ed0666's Note - there’s no doubt Werner is a baller and will cause havoc him when played through the center with Pulisic and Ziyech on either side. Oh and Hudson Odoi when he starts realizing he’s a footballer. I just can’t help wondering we did the right thing not going for Werner I’m not sure he was right for us. But yes exciting times ahead for you mate ay not be you’re year this year but next season I feel you’ll be formidable.



26 aug 2020 17:35:06

1.) 26 Aug 2020 17:57:27
Fantastic signing. I'm glad we have managed to get the best LB available to us. Welcome Chilly 🥶.

2.) 26 Aug 2020 18:32:22
Reminds me of the first Roman year!

{Ed001's Note - Christ Tom I knew you were old but I didn't know you remembered back to when Rome occupied England!}

3.) 26 Aug 2020 18:50:41
Haha Ed but yes, I am old.

{Ed001's Note - at least your memory is intact though. I can't remember anything from this morning, let alone a few years ago.}

4.) 26 Aug 2020 19:19:31
It’s about the only thing that works nowadays Ed.

{Ed001's Note - I know that feeling!}

5.) 26 Aug 2020 21:50:06
lucky u Tom. I can't remember what I did yesterday. The number of times I go to another room to do something, then forget what I was going to do.

6.) 26 Aug 2020 22:01:28
It’s when you forget why you’ve gone to the men’s room you’ve got a big problem Sid.



26 Jul 2020 21:20:00
Anyone see Bayern Leverkusens latest tweet?

"Do you want to see Kai Haverts in blue? "

Definitely expecting them to put up a picture of him in a random blue shirt or somthing 😂.

1.) 26 Jul 2020 21:36:22
I think it’s probably been all but done for quite a while.

Very happy to have him. He looks some player!



06 Feb 2020 18:17:33
Spot on with the change of the summer transfer deadline back to falling in line with other European leagues Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - it was a dumb thing to do originally and naive to think everyone would adapt to the English season.}



01 Feb 2020 19:23:30
All we need now is city to beat spurs and we've got out of jail again for another week.

1.) 01 Feb 2020 19:30:54
I wonder how many times we will get a bail out of jail before we start serving the long sentence for our recent form.

2.) 01 Feb 2020 20:34:38
a point today is still a good result regardless.

3.) 02 Feb 2020 12:00:24
Nicely put CFCShak!

I'd hope we do back kepa, there is a decent keeper in there somewhere. He's lacked confidence and had been made a scapegoat for our whole defence this year. Sure some rubbishs are down to him but what keeper hasn't Ben at fault. Look at de gea, probably been the best keeper in the world the last few years and he is a shadow of his former self this year. Let's get behind him and give him a chance.

And rightly so Ed002. We've been spoilt this window with the incomings. One thing about Marina and Co is they are absolutely brilliant and getting the best prices possible for our outgoing players.

We where beat by the better team. No sense in denying it. I'd feel worse it if was against Burnley or Leeds etc. Easy to be negative but in reality where in a great position. We have recruited brilliantly and have the majority of our signings to come in. Not to mention the little American bloke who isn't half bad either. These things take time, we have a lot to look forward to.

I really don't go in for this whole net spend malarkey. Its just a way to justify/ disguise how much a club spends.

Our clubs are run differently, and that's OK. We have both enjoyed success under our respective models. Debating money will get us know where. Now a decent debate would be who you would prefer up top ed0666. Werner or fermino?

You still have the advantage over us let's be honest. Just a shame the game has come this early when where not up to full fitness and missing players.

{Ed0666's Note - no debate mate, Bobby all day long. He is a magician mate.
