edd any idea is the move for fekir if we do move at all does that have any nearing on wether bakayoko goes to milan or not. as in if bakayoko moves to milan will that make us go all out for fekir?


{Ed001's Note - I don't believe there is any connection.}

1.) 09 Aug 2018 08:27:45
Magicandshurley - I think Bakayoko is now going on loan to AC Milan with a view to buy as a consequence of us bringing in Kovacic on loan from Real.

That being said, I really hope we can do something for Feki before the end of the window.



07 Aug 2018 20:47:49
is the fekir rumours rubbish or is it a deal we can pull off edd i no u stated he wanted lfc move but im sure if we came calling hed be up for it. hed definetly add quality we don't have in the cm position.


{Ed001's Note - I honestly don't know.}



19 Jul 2018 23:53:40
im not being funny but who in their right mind would want to sign bakayoko or morata after last season? really thought morata was the business. first 2 or 3 months then went to absolute rubbish and looked like torres more and more by the week maybe not pl suited we'll see diego is the ultimate number 9 should of never been sold.


1.) 20 Jul 2018 00:12:34
Diego costa wanted to leave. Lukaku was the real one we missed on. Sorry to keep bringing it up with the absolute denial from Chelsea fans when we dithered around and he chose united was incredible. We missed out on a top premier league striker and got Morata and Bakayoko which the people on here said were ‘upgrades’ on Clsta and Matic. Incredible.

2.) 20 Jul 2018 08:34:06
Costa wanted out and I am sure he would have continued to be belligerent if we tried to keep him. I have always said that Bayakoko was one of our biggest waste of money and I felt for Drinkwater who was never given a run in the team as he did. If Morata had continued as he started nobody would mention Costa and as much as I think he is unsuited to the physical side of the EPL something went wrong. Whether he was carrying a back injury, whether he he had issues with Conte or whether as he said a number of times, he found London difficult to settle in, maybe if he stays it will come good again. Lukkaku left behind some enemies within the club so returning was always going to be difficult.

3.) 20 Jul 2018 08:45:02
I still by my feelings from the start, Lukaku ain't the striker for us. I see his first touch let's him down, it's not like his had an exceptional season. I think he only scored 1 goal vs top teams and that was us.

4.) 20 Jul 2018 08:45:22
Both players aren't bad players, and they haven't just turned into bad players overnight.

Taking Morata first, he hit the ground running (Barring the pen miss in the Charity Shield) 10 goals up to the end of December, and we all said we had something special. A back injury, which he chose to play through obviously affected him. He didn't look the same player at all. 11 league goals and 6 assists in a season when an injury played a part is a very good return imo. Moving Morata on "cos he's crap" is not an option. If Sarri says he doesn't fit, that's a different story.

It's harder to make a case of Bakayoko, of course. Based on his last season with Monaco, he should have everything to suit the Premier League, yet he showed very little to prove this. He's looks strong and powerful but didn't stamp himself on the game last season. There's a case to be made that Contes system didn't suit/ he wasn't being used to his strengths. With Jorginho and Kante behind him, is there a case to be made for allowing Baka just to focus on driving forward?

In regards to losing Costa and Matic, it's public knowledge that both players tried to leave Chelsea before we won the league in Contes 1st season. In Costas case, he's been looking for that move for longer. Everyone focuses on Contes text to Costa, but it's reported that "Costa replied in a jokey way" to an enjoy the holidays text. Costa is a B*stard, we loved the way everyone else hated him, but "jokey way", I don't believe that. Costa and Conte definitely didn't see eye to eye.

5.) 20 Jul 2018 08:55:36
I still think Bakayoko will come good, he deserves a chance and a season without everyone jumping on his back. His physicality is impressive and if he gets his head screwed on then he will become good, people forget how he played for Monaco in their title winning season and run to the CL semis. Morata I'm less convinced, I hate his antics and his attitude.

6.) 20 Jul 2018 09:12:36
Lukaku made some enemies? Since when? Never heard anything of the sort.

The reason he didn’t return was because we didn’t bid for him to try get Everton to take their price down. United bid for him and made him feel wanted and once we matched Their bid it was too late.

7.) 20 Jul 2018 10:26:01
Good summary dihanio, I agree totally with what you said.

8.) 20 Jul 2018 13:50:02
Ed002 said numerous times that Lukaku had burnt his bridges with many people higher up at Chelsea and many people were against resigning him, whilst one person tried to convince the club to take another chance on him. Not sure if I'm making this up or if I actually remember correctly but I believe this person was Eddie Newton, maybe someone can confirm though.

9.) 20 Jul 2018 14:07:38
dihanio: Very sensible assessment and shows how we all view things differently. I had an issue with Bayakoko all season often referring to him as an athlete trying to play football. As we have him I would like to think there is more to him than he showed but to me he is not Sarri's type of player.



19 Jul 2018 17:53:40
fekir to chelsea the latest rumour doing the rounds seems like liverpool won't go back in for him after splashing out on alisson becker. id take him with open arms and get rid of an average pedro or fabregas. what's yours thoughts guys? me personally we should snap him up wev old ish inconsitant players in fabregas pedro drinkwater we shoulf get rid of all 3.


1.) 19 Jul 2018 18:18:01
Don't really watch the French league and I'd be concerned as to why Liverpool pulled out when everything was agreed. I do agree we need to move some players on though. I think we can afford to lose Drinkwater, Pedro and one of our strikers. Out of the three strikers I would sell Morata to be honest, can hopefully get most of the money we paid for him back as he just isn't suited to the prem and in all honesty I hate his antics, falling over st every opportunity. Giroud and Bats have a lot to offer us in my opinion.

2.) 19 Jul 2018 18:37:32
Didn’t they pull out over an injury concern? If so I’d be surprised if we don’t pull out over the same issue.

3.) 19 Jul 2018 19:01:47
Rather go all in for Isco Thiago alcantara. If Morata wants to go then I think we need a younger striker than Higuain. I think he could do well but in a year or two after spending £60m on him we will be on the lookout again for a top striker. i would like us to take a chance on bellotti.

4.) 19 Jul 2018 19:57:57
Drinkwater, Pedro and Morata along with a few of the youngsters are on the Australia trip. Although repeatedly reported that Morata wants to leave both Isco and Asensio said last season that Morata was trying to encourage one of them to join him at Chelsea so maybe!

5.) 19 Jul 2018 23:11:18
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.

6.) 19 Jul 2018 23:22:13
dont know much about belotti id take a chance on him and fekir and donneruma all day long do. fabregas drinkwater and pedro are not good enough for me i also don't think alonso or moses will have a future in our new system if sarri does go 4 at d back.

7.) 19 Jul 2018 22:14:54
Just a question for the Ed’s what’s your opinions on Rugani is he any good I’ve never seen him play he doesn’t get much game time for Juve does he? Is he an upgrade on what we have thanks in advance.

{Ed018's Note - I’ve never seen him play and I’m guessing most the Ed’s on here have seen very little if any of him.}

8.) 20 Jul 2018 00:10:01
Ok mate that’s fair enough thankyou for getting back to me though.

{Ed018's Note - no problem. There must certainly be some potential there and I trust the scouts have done their job. I’d guess he wouldn’t be first choice right away but would hopefully work his way into a partnership with Christensen. That’d be the ideal outcome}

9.) 20 Jul 2018 07:43:27
I’m wondering were that would leave Rudiger as I thought he had a very good first season.

10.) 20 Jul 2018 08:50:35
I don't get this Fekir chasing!

Liverpool pulled out of a deal cos they found an underlying knee problem. Why would we want to spend money on a player when it's known there's a chance of a potential career ending injury?

Makes no sense to me at all. We say Bale is injury prone when we are linked, but this case is different? I don't get it!

11.) 20 Jul 2018 09:08:31
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.

12.) 20 Jul 2018 06:11:15
Thanks for the info ed 018 so where would that leave Rudiger as I thought he was class last year vying for rb with Azpilicueta? Looking forward to seeing more of Emerson this year and I think Barkley if he gets his head down could be really good this year. I know it’s in the past but I thought stones had a good wc and he would of been a Sarri style player for sure although that may well of hindered Christensen thinking about it.

{Ed018's Note - it’s impossible to say for sure how it would all shake out. I’d think Rüdiger will definitely start the season starting at CB.}

13.) 20 Jul 2018 13:31:11
Yeah me too thanks for the response mate.



15 Jul 2018 23:01:55
if we sell hazard we have to push for assensio or some1 in exchange for me. also sell tibo before he runs down his contract. sing pickford. if hazard goes we have to get a huge talent like dybala to replace him not fat higuian.


1.) 16 Jul 2018 08:59:38
I’m still very much hoping he stays but if he is leaving then let’s get it over with ASAP.
Same with Willian and Courtois. If there going let’s pull the trigger and get on with the rebuild.

conte to madrid is music to my ears it really limits the chance of hazard leaving now hopefully hel continue to start peaking now for chelsea rather dan madrid.




09 Aug 2018 14:07:42
any more likely ins today edd or are we done and looking to offload now.


{Ed001's Note - looks done on ins.}

1.) 09 Aug 2018 15:38:50
cheers edd roll on the season then and all the excitement of pl football.

{Ed001's Note - looks a great season in prospect, even the promoted teams look good this time around.}



09 Aug 2018 13:39:25
looks like we won't be making any big signing now ah well at least we replaced tibo. fekir would of been sweet do.


1.) 09 Aug 2018 14:01:22
we haven't made any big signings?

. I'm pretty sure chelsea have just signed the world most expensive keeper. 71mill not enough? :/ .

2.) 09 Aug 2018 14:06:50
sorry i meant on deadline day pal😂.



05 Aug 2018 16:24:33
what were learning today. david luiz is still a terrible centre back always was always will be fantastic on the ball not so much marking players. pedro fabregas barkley drinkwater morata absoloute rubbish . looking forward to seen kanta jorginho an who ever in a 3 man midfield.
1 big point here is how did we manage to sign jorginho over city😂 he is an amazing footballer hed the only 1 standing out today for us.


1.) 05 Aug 2018 16:34:31
Few agree but I would put Luiz in midfield with Jorghino and Kante which gives us everything we need, Fabregas and so far, Barkley are poor, the latter looks woefully short of fitness. Pedro doesn't last 90 minutes so why not take him off and leave Hudson-Odoi on, our only serious threat. We have some pace in the team but today they look as if they have lead boots on.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 16:45:55
luiz isn't quick enough for. midfield or intelligent enough hed let too many players run off him.

{Ed018's Note - I wouldn’t put Luiz anywhere near that midfield. They’d be running past him at will}

3.) 05 Aug 2018 16:46:16
hope kante hazard improves us.

4.) 05 Aug 2018 17:14:31
Pathetic performance. City could have scored 3 or 4 near the end. We have so many players who aren't up to the required standard.

5.) 05 Aug 2018 18:51:45
thats due to the board buying players who aren't good enough to save money.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 11:31:48
We got Jorginho because he wouldn’t get in the City team and he wants to play football. I’ve got high hopes for him but let’s not get it twisted, he’s not THAT good.



31 Jul 2018 00:32:44
may i ask who is vecino? 3 goals last season for inter how many more non goal scoring midfielders does a club need? is he any sort of improvement on our current midfield.
