What a bad week, morata now Kante, in my opinion not a big deal for palace game but after that it will be, things that went for us last year going against us already. Worrying.

Never ideal when players get injured or suspended. I try and look at the positive possibilities. Suspensions have given a opportunity to Christensen and that’s worked out well.
Bats has now got an opportunity with the Morata injury and I believe and hope he proves the doubters wrong.
I except that Kante being out is more problematic because he is such a unique player but it’s up to Conte and the player he chooses to step up to plate.

2.) 08 Oct 2017 09:02:46
can only mean luiz Bakayoko in midfield. or if we play 3 then fab Bakayoko luiz. to me its a no brainer can't play Bakayoko and fab togther.

3.) 08 Oct 2017 14:30:14
Yup, and hamstring issues usually take a while to fully heal. We might be without the both of them for a couple of weeks.

Hopefully Drinkwater is fit again by next week, as Baka-Drinky in midfield should be solid enough most games. And I hope Conte also starts to rotate Bakayoko a bit against easier teams. We need him even more without Kante so can't risk losing him to injury as well.

4.) 08 Oct 2017 18:28:29
Agree Jacks i think with Drinkwater ready we should be covered in Mid. Bats need to step up now. A goal for him in the International will do wonders for his moral. Needs to spill over in Epl.

5.) 09 Oct 2017 20:46:02
I’d actually be excited to see drinkwater baky start a game.

6.) 10 Oct 2017 17:43:25
Agree Matt i think the partnership will be good.

Ox has rejected chance to join Chelsea as doesn't want to play RWB but wants central role.

Matt martin

1.) 30 Aug 2017 04:44:04
I wonder if this is true and if eds have any insight on this?
Hes not going to play much CM at Liverpool is he? I think Coutinho is going so I don't see where he fits in the midfield there?
He certainly will not play CM here. Is this news true eds or is there a chance that report is bs? Its being reported by a few credible sources.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I have just woken up. Only thing I know is that he has made it very clear from the start that he wanted to sign for Liverpool, so it could just be people assuming based on that. It could just as easily be true as well, but no one in the UK that would know is awake to ask right now!}

2.) 30 Aug 2017 05:53:35
If he is scared of competiting with Bakayoko, Kante, Fabregas and Drinkwater, not sure why he thinks he'll fair better with Wijnaldum, Henderson, Can to be honest. Smacks of the Arsenal mentality, demands a lot for little to no work.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 06:16:22
Liverpool have already signed a midfield player who will start next season and an approach for another rejected.
I'm not sure how his supposed positional preferences will be more likely at Anfield.
It's just another example of how difficult it is sometimes to get transfers over the line!

4.) 30 Aug 2017 06:45:38
Haha sorry Eds im from Australia ;-) THe working day is coming to an end here. Thanks for the reply.

{Ed001's Note - no worries mate, it is not even 7am in the UK yet, so it is difficult to get hold of anyone.}

5.) 30 Aug 2017 07:00:22
PS: In my comment above its suppose to stay I don't think Coutinho is going.

{Ed001's Note - Klopp is trying to replace him with Lemar, he wants rid now after initially intending to keep him. It will be Klopp's decision though as the club are 100% backing him and taking their lead from him.}

6.) 30 Aug 2017 07:36:02
The whole situation with Ox is strange. Wants to leave the team with the weakest central midfield in the top 6, for another top 6 team, so that he can play central midfield.

Fair play to him, he knows what he wants, and he's going for that, but I can't see it working out for him. If this mornings stories are true it's definitely one of those spilt milk situations for Chelsea though.

7.) 30 Aug 2017 09:09:21
he'd surely get a chance to rotate. with kanta baka an fabregas in the middle and possobly right wing every now an den. picking liverpool over chelsea ia dumb. he won't get in over can an henderson or man an salah out wide so surprised he picked this liverpool move if it happens. he probably wouldn't be ahead of lalana either in the pecking order 😂.

8.) 30 Aug 2017 09:17:56
'TWO SOURCES close to Ox Chamberlain say he wants to go to Liverpool', according to Skysports' KAVEH SOLHEKOL.
He hasn't come out to declare anything publicly but I guess players don't declare such things publicly.

9.) 30 Aug 2017 09:28:28
Chelsea obviously has better players compared to Arsenal, so I guess the Ox wants first team assurances- to play in a midfield position rather than wingback. I don't even see Liverpool playing him in his desired midfield position. He is wired for wingback position.



28 Aug 2017 17:17:11
Apt reports saying drinkwater also almost done, €30m plus few add ons. busy day if true.

Matt martin



19 Aug 2017 19:12:59
Not sure if my posts are coming on but apparently fee agreed for costa 45m € plus 10m€ in add ons, something positive for you guys.

Matt martin



09 Aug 2017 00:26:59
Tonight's back pages are cancelo and cisse of Valencia and Monaco, ox chamberlain drinkwater, Danny rose, aurier and VVD, obviously not all true etc but does seem club are really trying to get bits done, apart from drinkwater and VVD it seemed quiet. Nothing on winger forward thou.

So eds what strikers are looking / available at right price to leave in January with us surely SURELY after a striker,

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - I have no interest in helping.}

1.) 15 Oct 2017 13:38:53
No worries,

2.) 15 Oct 2017 20:48:34
Why not recall abraham? The lad can definatelly play as a second striker.



09 Oct 2017 21:30:11
Kante rumoured 3 weeks out, small tear apparently, that's s huge 3 weeks.

Matt martin

1.) 10 Oct 2017 00:09:33
N’golo Kante doesn’t get injured he’s just assisting in getting Danny Drinkwater a game for Chelsea. #KanteFacts
From a page on Facebook it's hilarious.

2.) 10 Oct 2017 08:30:47
3 weeks would be decent. Though I'm expecting him to miss quite a bit more. Hamstring problems can really be difficult to overcome.



04 Oct 2017 15:23:09
Do we honestly believe we want Sanchez and Sandro in Jan ( hard enough before season starts ) to keep conte happy,

Matt martin

1.) 04 Oct 2017 16:15:25
Sandro without doubt, Sanchez I am not so sure.

2.) 04 Oct 2017 21:28:26
Would love sanchez on the right, can you imagine morata, hazard, sanchez trio.

3.) 05 Oct 2017 02:54:11
Sanchez will be 29 in December and as much as I'd love him here i can't see Chelsea spending money on a player who's nearly 30. We know how our club is with players once they reach that age and I'm pretty sure he wants to work with Pep again anyway. Sandro i can imagine us trying again in January but it'll be more of the same when we tried in the summer i assume. No doubt both would improve our team massively though.

4.) 05 Oct 2017 07:37:56
Dybala would be unreal although unrealistic.

5.) 06 Oct 2017 23:46:45
With a little bit of good fortune Juve will agree to sell us our prime target.



30 Sep 2017 20:09:59
Pretty certain come January we will be very keen on a big CF who can hold ball up, and and a RW,

Matt martin

1.) 30 Sep 2017 20:31:41
Hazard, Pedro, Willian, Moses are all right wingers. Chelsea needs Abraham back plus 1 more central forward.

2.) 30 Sep 2017 22:59:38
Pedro Hazard LW, Moses now a wing back and willian is none of the above .

3.) 01 Oct 2017 16:50:41
Right footed winger is a right winger naturally ( of course many are played nowdays as counter wingers) . So, all 4 of them started their careers as right wingers (right midfielders) . And you could witness yesterday how does it look like when you play 2 wingers (midfielders by vocation) as strikers (impotent) .

4.) 01 Oct 2017 22:03:09
Ok. we need better wingers except hazard, willian terrible, Pedro very good but not getting younger, mushonda not ready.



30 Sep 2017 19:19:10
I'll tell you what is really pi**ing me off, every time willian loses the ball ( pass or tackles ) he looks around at someone else, bloke offfers nothing. Mad how we haven't addressed RW in last 2/ 3 years.

In my opinion touchel is the complete and utter worse case, and all out attack manager who came in stuck tactically with Dortmund and fell out with there board, imagine him under our board and in prem if your not tactically on point it’s shows, it’s ok in Bundeslig where you have 4/ 5 tough games ( not opponents ) in the league, only manager is like would be Algeri, I’d be gutted if conte walked away. Such a top class manager, feel we couldn of backed him bit more,

That midfield destroyed athletico, our squad depth / options now morata is injured is huge concern, other news. Christensen is phenomenal.

Great idea, I'd only be worried being a selling club. Forces club to identify targets and act quicker,

Our squad depth isn’t comparable, without morata we looked without a plan, they were without aguero and didn’t even make a difference, we bought on willian and they bought on bernado Silva, I mean one is a footballer and other isn’t. says it all,

Rudiger and Christensen there so more than enough cover, was worried bout his red but slipping back to old ways with switching off, also how didn’t we get a pen if they did.
