According to DiMarzio we have contacted Real asking about the availability of Kovacic. Personally I would much rather him over Golovin or Seri as I think he's built for the prem. He's more like a younger version of Modric than what Golovin is. It looks like maybe we will sign two midfielders and we would like two of these three mentioned. I would just like Kovacic because signing two would block Mount's path to the first team. A midfield three of RLC, Kante and Kovacic would have everything.


1.) 04 Jul 2018 07:47:57
I fear if it was public knowledge he was available (we agree a tansfer fee) a club with CL football on offer may come along and pinch him.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 22:03:02
Through Courtois in the mix.



09 May 2018 22:07:36
So predictable! Willian and Pedro are so inconsistent it's about time we got that quality RW in who can do damage. Mahrez and Bailey needed with Hudson-Odoi used as Hazards back up.




06 May 2018 12:41:36
Any truth in these Martial rumours? Quality player but I would prefer Bailey we desperately need a left footed winger.


1.) 06 May 2018 14:04:29
I'd love us to get Martial, but for 40m + Willian seems a bit of a joke.

Willian is easily of the same value as Martial, Martial maybe slightly higher because of his age.

But 40m + willian would be a terrible bit of business in my opinion.

2.) 06 May 2018 14:18:38
I’ve jumped on willian and said I’d like martial, . But that’s not a good deal. I’ve said willian lacks consistency but is a great squad player at the very least, 35m should get martial a player who hasn’t performed really in last 2 years and wants out,

3.) 06 May 2018 20:41:33
Let’s be honest do we want to sell Willian to utd. No I don’t think so, as for Martial he is a good young player. But has his value increased since he went to utd, no definitely not. He would be a risk as he is in and out with form. Sound like someone else, oh yes Willian., def no trade
Yes buy martial but not too much money maybe 35-40m.

4.) 07 May 2018 15:38:50
I would absolutely not want us to sell Willian, as would be clear from my postings over many moons now. IMHO, unless he has been nursing a slight injury, he should have had considerably more game time and in fact started most mjaor matches. Could not believe Bakayoko preferred to him so often, though yesterday was not Bakayoko's worst performance by any means (competition stiff re worst performance - but his dreadful cameo v Watford? Stopped by being sent off. Possibly cost us the match and top four place with it. Might get better, but Willian is proven quality, albeit form dipped last season when mother died/ not picked; has been better than Hazard at times recently and deserves a manager who believes in him - hopefully it will be a CFC manager, Conte or.

5.) 07 May 2018 18:38:33
Jobs I think realistically the games that will cost us losing to Spurs when leading but worse still was draw with West Ham. That is the game that will cost us.

6.) 07 May 2018 19:01:37
Fair point 7052andrew that there are many ther games that lost us top four, will concede this - but that Watford first half was up there with worst all season (and I was at the Burnley game, first half, first game of season) . But yes if we'd beaten Spurs.



16 Apr 2018 10:41:43
Here's an easy way to claw back money we've wasted this summer. Sell Drinkwater and Baka and being back Loftus-Cheek and Van Ginkel. Both are better players and are not one dimensional like the other two who shouldn't have been bought anyway.

And can people finally get off the Fabregas bandwagon now. I've been saying for two years when his passing games not on scratch it's like playing with ten men. We should be all over Kovacic as he's not starting games for Madrid with Kroos and Modric begins first choice. He's a proper box to box an might just be the next Modric.


1.) 16 Apr 2018 11:37:26
Assuming we go down the much publicesed route of yet again changing our managing and therefore probably our team shape.
The next manager may well want to keep and play Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Michy, Emerson, RLC, Kennedy, Barkley and maybe even Cesc.
I can only see a period of change and upheaval ahead.

2.) 16 Apr 2018 13:42:50
Van Ginkel has done well in Holland . hardly comparable to prem league, loftus cheek I’m not sure as shining in a palace team and shining in a team going for titles, bakyoko id like another season to see how he gets on, has attributes to be top player and was at Monaco. wrong type of player to partner Kante but will see, Kovacic would be a superb signing, savic of lazio also. A midfield 3 of savic Kovacic and Kante covering would be unreal.

3.) 16 Apr 2018 15:29:19
We will need to thin out our squad to realise some money and probably lose one or both of Courtois and Hazard; I have said before, Hazard's style of play is suited best to the EPL not the Spanish League and I think he will make a huge mistake going there. We all have a list of players we want out and probably a list of who we want in but as we know Chelsea will not listen to any of us but if someone internally points out their transfer failings they should listen as they cannot keep forking out £15m to £30m on players that are not going to play. In an ideal world Van Ginkel is the sort of player we need alongside Kante but he has only played 60 (ish) games in six seasons and we need to see how he stands up next season to league and CL games. He looked very fragile after he joined us wherever he went so we should watch. If we are shrewd and buy just under the radar the Kovacic, Savic type players and up and coming players from the German league we could put a strong team together. We have to strengthen the midfield and we must inject pace into our game and have a target man who is good in the air and most of all stop slowing the game down and tippy tap passing in front of packed defences, it is getting us nowhere.



10 Apr 2018 23:33:59
There is no reason why Hudson-Odoi should not start every premier league game till the end of the season. That kid is absolutely class., I'd also make sure Sterling and Emerson play all too. Gutted about Ampadu being injured I think he looks a real leader.


1.) 11 Apr 2018 10:25:11
It's chelsea though, even when there's nothing to play for the players who let the fans down will play. Always happens, just like good old 'academy day'

2.) 11 Apr 2018 13:22:58
Remember, the youth players are in the FA Youth Cup Final and the European Youth Cup Final so I doubt they/ he will want to risk missing either.

3.) 11 Apr 2018 20:01:26
Wonder why the disagrees are? 🤔.

4.) 11 Apr 2018 22:04:53
C1955 makes a great point. I don't want to see Pedro come on and underperform any more this season but I think winning FA Youth Cup and Euro Youth Cup will be more important for him than a couple of meaningless EPL games.

Stands a great chance to show he's one of the best at his age in Europe.

5.) 12 Apr 2018 01:55:32
But surely the exact point of being shouts player is to transition to the first team? And now is the best time.

6.) 12 Apr 2018 09:42:48
I understand KingFrank's comment because I also think Hudson-Odoi is one of a handful that 'could' break through from youth football but given Chelsea's senior performance the club would very much like to win the two most prestigious youth tournaments and they are not going to jeopodise that just so he gets experience, the finals will be big match experience in themselves. The frustration is we are re-cycling the same players week in week out who do the same things, we do not have a game changer.

7.) 12 Apr 2018 19:43:44
The other factor is that in order to qualify for next seasons Youth European Cup our kids will likely have to win it this season. He's our best, most influential, player at that level so he will definitely be kept fresh for that. I'd keep him for the youth cups and maybe FA Cup semi.

My only hope is that he doesn't get a pointless loan next season.

8.) 13 Apr 2018 10:03:20
I feel Emerson and Ampadu can play in first team and sub role but H. Odoi and D. Sterling needs more experience (can go on loan) .

9.) 13 Apr 2018 10:11:31
We bought Emerson to play in the first team but something is amiss as he is getting no game time. Ampadu I like a lot but he is a cornerstone of the youth team so, like Hudson-Odoi he is going to be focused there; I don't see Ampadu anymore experienced than either H-O or Sterling apart from a few fist team games and loaning them 'could' ruin them, just look at Musonda who is going backwards.

10.) 13 Apr 2018 11:00:10
Would you rather have Richarlison/ Leon Bailey or H. Odoi/ Musonda for the up coming season if you were to replace Pedro.

11.) 13 Apr 2018 16:31:19
Personally, Leon Bailey with Hudson-Odoi in the squad. There is something about Richarlison but his fading makes me think our days of taking chances have passed. Musonda I like but this loan spell has not done him any good and sometimes we loan players once too often and that is often the sign they will not make it with us.

12.) 13 Apr 2018 16:35:26
Ampadu's game is more matured for the first team than Odoi and Sterling.

13.) 13 Apr 2018 16:57:15
Our four attackers should be Hazard, Bailey, Willian and Odoi for next season.

14.) 13 Apr 2018 17:33:03
I would like Bailey, Willian, Hazard and Richarlison.
I believe Richarlison is a young man that has played too many games for his age and needs a bit of rest.
For Chelsea squad next season, I pick Richarlison over H. Odoi. Odoi is good with so much potential but for a an ambitious club like Chelsea that needs to hit the ground running next season, Odoi and Musonda needs more playing time elsewhere for their development.

15.) 14 Apr 2018 07:48:45
Buying Richarlison over the promotion of Hudson-Odoi! The club don't need to hit the ground running next season, the club need to start building solid foundations for the next ten seasons. Hudson-Odoi will be a massive part of that, and he is very much ready.

Richarlison has faded away this season and is hardly the finished article.

16.) 14 Apr 2018 09:19:22
I am guessing that you don't care if Chelsea doesn't qualify for the champions league next cos we will certainly be gambling our qualification if we go into the new season banking on players like Odoi (not cos he isn't good but cos he isn't proven) . I feel we can achieve all 3 goals of:
* building solid foundations for next ten seasons
* hitting the ground running
* Developing the player even more by-
-Sending Odoi out on loan for regular football for his development and bringing in a more experienced player (that must not be Richarlison) . If Odoi good we all claim, then he will take his chance wherever he is to on loan. Please guys consider the opponents you come against in the EPL top six.

Icardi is the type of signing that makes Hazard stay. What a player. He's a natural goal scorer too. Sell Morata and get him with Giroud off the bench.

Hudson-Odoi/ Bailey, Icardi and Hazard next season under Sarri would be 😳🔥.


1.) 18 Sep 2018 20:58:37
Please please can posters not mention Icardi again - it really winds me up - Icardi will not be leaving Italy any time soon - and if and when he does, he won't be coming to the Prem - so stop it!

2.) 18 Sep 2018 21:16:17
What makes you think that Mr Know it all?

3.) 18 Sep 2018 21:26:23
Was a good goal but we can’t sign all of the players supporters want.

I might be wrong but at the moment I think we’ve got the biggest squad I can remember and we unbeaten in five.

We also have lots of players out on loan who may well have good season with their respective clubs and will therefore deserve a chance.

For me, ’the time for dreaming is not now. Let’s at least wait until the next window is upon us!

4.) 19 Sep 2018 10:40:06
Great news Ampadu signing now for Callum to follow suit.



17 Sep 2018 19:59:54
Really hope Sarri unleashes Ampadu and Hudson-Odoi in these 6 Europa league games as well as the cup game against Anfield I'm sure they will smash it. Hope Loftus-Cheek is back next week as well he deserves all them games too.


1.) 17 Sep 2018 21:09:51
Yeah be interesting to see how much he changes it Emerson Christensen Barkley Zappacosta Cahill could all do with minutes.



16 Sep 2018 23:34:53
We've been linked with Thauvin a few times has anyone watched him much for Marseille? It looks as though he's been outstanding for them and scores goals too. Maybe an option for RW along with Bailey and Zaha.

I don't know what went on with him at Newcastle but he's been prolific since. Maybe it could be like another Salah situation after leaving us.


1.) 17 Sep 2018 15:18:36
Bakayoko was outstanding for Monaco, Kezman was outstanding for Eindhoven - look how those two turned out.



13 Sep 2018 23:31:30
My XI vs PAOK:


Zappacosta Ampadu Luiz Emerson

RLC Fabregas Barkley

Willian Morata Hudson-Odoi

Baring in mind I've not put Christensen in because I want him to start in the league alongside Rudiger same with Morata dropped for Giroud. Moses, Cahill, Green and Drinkwater could be good rotational subs in the Europa.


1.) 14 Sep 2018 12:34:25
Drinkwater isn’t in the squad I don’t think mate.



07 Sep 2018 01:57:30
Proud to be welsh after seeing Ampadu play tonight. Lads a rolls Royce and being a Chelsea fan makes it even sweeter. I wouldn't mind seeing him play CB with Rudiger. At 17 he's already a leader. With him and Hudson-Odoi we are sorted. We can't play Cahill or Moses in Europa it's a perfect platform for our two youngsters.


1.) 07 Sep 2018 09:11:47
Agreed mate every time I watch him he looks class, always so composed and reads the game so well. We really do need him and CHO getting games this season, they have the potential to be players st the top of the game.

2.) 07 Sep 2018 09:31:35
The guy is good.

3.) 07 Sep 2018 12:18:34
I really want Sarri to prove Aureiio DeLaurentes wrong by giving Ampadu and Hudson Odoi more opportunities this season. Sarri should be bold and play them cos they are both class. Whatever be the reason why Odoi isn't in the team all this while, I pray it can be sorted out quickly too.

4.) 10 Sep 2018 08:48:57
"Whatever be the reason why Odoi isn't in the team all this while, I pray it can be sorted out quickly too. "

I would say, Hazard is the simple answer there.

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.

Hazard has never had as many class players around him as Neymar or played under attacking coaches. Neymar has been playing with Mbappe and Cavani while Hazard has had Morata and Willian.

15 Sep 2018 17:33:13
We’ve been saying for years add class players around him but we never seem to. We’ve strengthened midfield massively this summer with Kovacic and Jorginho. ST and RW are still massive issues. Giroud was fantastic today but we need a Kane who can do it all. Pedro played well also he wasn’t scared to have a shot he would be a great impact sub. Bailey should come into replace Willian or maybe Hudson-Odoi can show us what he’s capable of in the Europa.

Never included Christensen because for me he should be starting next to Rudiger in the league Luiz should partner Ampadu in the Europa league as experience.
