As Roma director has said that Roma signing piatek from Genoa is difficult with the 70m asking price and possibly going to Chelsea? I think there was a mis translation but something along those lines, that's good news. Along with Barcelona wanting Willian, player plus cash apparently, Malcom the name mentioned ( I'd personally do for dembele or coutinho and give them some money plus player, fekir rumours gone completely quiet, Higuain rumours are that Sarri wants him but Chelsea don't ( still ) nothing new on Wilson except the rumoured £50m ( £30m was steep ) and rumours of roman wanting icardi but think those rumours are because his wife has gone public with comments trying to get a better deal or bidding war I imagine, nothing new on Paredes or Barella,

Telegraph reporting we have rejected the Barcelona offer.

2.) 11 Jan 2019 08:11:57
I’m just (completely unsurprised) but sad that the one Dybala rumour I heard last week seems to have not picked up any momentum : (.



05 Jan 2019 10:43:30
£45m bid for Barella, and inquiry about Cavani, that's rumours from Italy today. Cesc last game, Wilson still on our list, CHO agreed terms with Bayern and asked Chelsea to let him leave. Few of today's rumours.

Matt martin

1.) 05 Jan 2019 11:41:59
cavani be a decent signing.

2.) 05 Jan 2019 17:00:44
If we lose CHO oh my.



04 Jan 2019 17:20:18
The Lazano rumours didn't last long, raiola put them to bed, not going anywhere til summer ( like ed. Said )

Matt martin

1.) 04 Jan 2019 19:14:00
I remember Mino Raiola saying the same thing (about not moving in a particular window) in Pogba's case only for him to end up at Manchester United some days later. I guess there's still time before we run a rule on this one.



04 Jan 2019 15:35:22
Solanke in at Bournemouth. Wilson out.

Matt martin

1.) 04 Jan 2019 15:56:58
defoe out solanke in id imagine.

2.) 04 Jan 2019 15:59:41
And people were up in arms when Solanke left LOL.

3.) 04 Jan 2019 16:23:13
Forgot Defoe had left.

4.) 04 Jan 2019 17:05:30
solanke might go kick on now he has a bit of a chance at bournmouth.

5.) 04 Jan 2019 18:56:48
Do we have any sell on clause with Solanke does anyone know.

{Ed002's Note - Of course not.}

6.) 04 Jan 2019 19:19:20
Ok thankyou for the reply Ed.



24 Dec 2018 13:56:36
As January not usually the time to spend mega money, wonder if any truth in buy back clauses, Thorgan Hazard and Bertrand traore, ? Just a though.

Matt martin

1.) 24 Dec 2018 15:16:52
i wouldn't take either der not an upgrade on what we have.

2.) 24 Dec 2018 16:16:20
would love to have Troare back - never understood why we sold him.

3.) 24 Dec 2018 16:52:25
sold him because he's not a top class player.

4.) 24 Dec 2018 21:20:19
Thorgan hazard is definitely better than what we have right now. You haven't watched him much this season so far I guess.

5.) 24 Dec 2018 21:32:24
Well Thorgan Hazard is better than Willian. As for Bertrand Traore, there’s a reason we sold him.

6.) 24 Dec 2018 21:47:15
There was a reason we sold de bryne, it doesn't mean the reason was valid. It's also worth mentioning that Lyons attack force this season is very good and traore is a big part of that. Would I want traore on the right instead of Willian? Absolutely.

7.) 25 Dec 2018 10:03:04
Mc what was the reason? The guy was quality even at Chelsea but was shelved from the squad.

8.) 25 Dec 2018 14:45:30
Are we talking about December bryne or traore? Merry Christmas btw.

9.) 25 Dec 2018 22:56:42
De Bruyne was sold because he made demands relating to game time that we couldn’t guarantee wasn’t he? We received a good offer and he wanted to leave and the club were happy to sell.

10.) 25 Dec 2018 23:54:00
We had an idiot who decided Oscar was better than De Bruyne. That’s why he left. Quite right to ask for a transfer away from the club. Should have been given the playing time at the end of the day.

11.) 26 Dec 2018 11:13:39
For de Bruyne read Callum Hudson-O'Doi - are we destined to continually make the same mistakes!

12.) 26 Dec 2018 12:51:39
Not sure the two are comparable MDW but yes, Chelsea like all clubs will make mistakes the transfer market.

13.) 26 Dec 2018 23:21:35
Nick, correct. He played quality and then got dropped for no apparent reason and was told to wait on the sidelines for three months before an opportunity arises. Was the right decision for him to leave and the wrong decision for us to sell.

Well, morata seems to be a athletico player, he has/ had almost everything to be a star at Chelsea. Age, speed skill technique Ariel ability, size, but mentally he just wasn't ready for a club like ours, he suited the bench at Madrid, if he comes one and scores then great but if he didn't he was only the back up option. Won lots without contributing to Madrid and when it come to being the number one and having the pressure and responsibility he folded, makes you realise that players like Ronaldo Messi benzema Cavani Suarez Higuain etc and there careers that the never let there head drop and keep going, I really do hope he does well athletico and loved the goals he did get whilst here,

Ferland Mendy rudiger Christensen Azpi
Ndombele kante
Hazard fekir CHO / Pulisic

4231, midfielders who can play out and break forward but will be tough and hard to get by. Fekir as the 10, creative and scores and could swap with hazard and Pulisic, Ferland Mendy good LB, going for a young French connection, realistic and affordable, also could have Reece james cover, Loftus-Cheek could be used in the no10 role ( not my choice but a fan favourite ) linked to coutinho but high price but either one would suit the role,

Matt martin

1.) 20 Jan 2019 17:09:29
That’s actually a very good team plus wouldn’t cost that muc. We don’t need Ndombele however, we have RLC, Jorhinho though I’m not his biggest fan I think he’ll be decent beside the best central midfielder in the world beside him maybe Kovacic beside Kante would be good too.

Other than that, Good shout.

2.) 20 Jan 2019 17:33:32
Azpilicueta isn’t the answer going forward he can’t attack. Reece James deserves a shot. N’Dombele is class but I actually think Ampadu should play next to Kanté the lads a young leader which we lack. I agree about the rest though with Hazard back to the left and someone like Fekir in we’d be playing to our best players strengths again.

3.) 20 Jan 2019 17:36:22
I also doubt Lyon will let us sign 3 of there most important players 🙄 Fekir would be great for now.

4.) 20 Jan 2019 21:24:16
If hazard did leave I’d invest the whole lot into Insigne, brilliant player. And good goalscorer.

5.) 20 Jan 2019 21:31:13
He’s a great shout just think we have that too many right footers that’s why we’re predictable going forward always passing to the left. It’s be Griezmann or more realistically Pepe for me.

6.) 20 Jan 2019 22:02:19
Pepe should be a target now but think he plays on right, and we have CHO Pulisic For next year, Memphis depay? Sticking with my theme of taking over Lyon? Lol.

7.) 20 Jan 2019 23:17:29
Yeah he does play on right but we could move CHO to the left where he’s best. Then we’d probably have next year CHO and Pedro for the LW and Pepe and Pulisic for the RW. Really need a left footed winger I think.



20 Jan 2019 00:31:15
What do people think of Sarri's Comments after the game, he was fuming. I though he was spot on, he isn't happy and not are we, he wants me and so do we, but it's not usually a good idea to slate the players, especially the likes of hazard who has never like a tough manger, could end in disaster, love Sarri passion thou. Maybe drop Jorginho and Alonso and Willian and see what spark that brings,

Matt martin

{Ed0333's Note - I feel Sarri was justified in his mood and choice of words. Clearly he’s no nonsense and won’t stand for any bollox.

1.) 20 Jan 2019 01:27:53
I can’t take him seriously when he picks the same XI and plays our best player out of position. The majority of the blame is his.

2.) 20 Jan 2019 03:30:55
It’s a worry that Alonso and Willian have had such a run when offer so little. And Sarri said other day how jorginho struggled.



19 Jan 2019 18:11:19
Well, 2-0 down, defensively we are a shambles, maybe it's best when teams just sit deep, what is going on, who is meant to create in this team? Hazard not in game at all, will get frustrated, only chance was from a Long ball, Sarri ball not being used today it seems.

Matt martin

1.) 19 jan 2019 21:54:32
Sarri ball is not being used because it's so easy to counter - Arsenal have employed Ramsey to sit on Jorginho - end of Sarri ball / end of Chelsea.



19 Jan 2019 14:40:44
Fàbregas replacement. Rúben neves? Some vision and those long accurate passes are deadly.

Matt martin

1.) 19 Jan 2019 16:41:00
Was hoping Hudson-Odoi started but after there goals against Newcastle it’s no surprise Willian an Pedro start need a win today massively come on the blues.

Greizman a striker / CF, hazard a winger, if hazard goes we need a winger / wide forward,

Fekir IMO can play left but is more of attacking midfielder, not an out and out winger, seems odd replacement, insigne would be best hazard replacement.

Mr negative here, . But ake is the typical Chelsea youth product, loved by fans and overhyped because we want the next JT or youth player to make it. He is half the player Christensen is, nowhere near good enough, few good games highlighted and the over below average games going unmentioned. not good enough and Bournemouth paid is what his value would be. £40m buyback lol.

Malcom hasn’t impressed and there’s trying to move him on after only a few months, if any truth we should go for a better player from them. If any truth at all that is.

Simply compare pep and Klopps first seasons and I think 4th on the last day with that city squad and Klopp I think was 7th or 8th, I agree he needs time, and his players. On the other hand. Emerson could get a chance, it’s good his shown faith in a struggling player but gone on long enough and also will he except that jorginho isn’t cut out for this league? He needs a few windows and we can judge him, Sao notes everything he said was bang on yesterday, but will need to take some responsibility, that arsenal side conceded 5 to Liverpool, lost to West Ham and we had 1 shot on target,

That’s the problem, nobody in the LCM position has made it there own, all had the chances there and nobody stamped there authority, which is why I think in the summer that will be a big priority, as I think we can do a lot better than the 3 options we have at the moment, I’d like nothing more than for RLC to prove me wrong, but it’s only my opinion,
