If Madrid have other targets ( Neymar mbappe etc ) would the arrival of Jose bring interest in hazard?

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - As you should know, Madrid already has an interest in Hazard.}


1.) 06 Mar 2019 17:37:35
Sorry I mean, would he be a priority, move up the pecking order or is he behind other targets.


2.) 06 Mar 2019 23:21:56
What do think Hazard was meant when he recently said that he's open to playing for Mourinho again? If you ask me- I think Hazard might have guessed that Mourinho might end up at Real Madrid and he (Hazard) wants to make sure that the bridge between them is amended.

Piatek looking an absolute bargain ( and long term ) for Milan, Higuain looks ok so far but we will need to replace before we know it.

Matt martin

1.) 16 Feb 2019 22:47:02
Would be very happy to have Jovic and Higuain as our ST options next season. Need quality depth to be competitive in every competition. Hopefully us getting Champions league football next season isn't crucial for us getting him since he's still very young.


2.) 16 Feb 2019 23:06:31
Jovic I think we should go for. Like Piatek but he’s only just joined. If there’s one player we need to take from Milan it’s Romagnoli. He’s brilliant, a leader and perfect for the LCB role.


3.) 17 Feb 2019 11:53:01
Piatek will only be at Milan long term if they can sort out their FFP.


4.) 20 Feb 2019 03:05:59
Ed001, what about Blanc and Lopetegui? Do you rate them?

{Ed001's Note - not as anything outstanding, no. Solid managers but no more.}

High profile players have told there agents to look for moves away after having enough with Sarri tactics and managing . finally some good news. Hopefully there agents can get them a move, I only want player who want to be here, and backing Sarri and and overhaul of the squad is needed. Jose knee it, conte said it, apparently pep said he didn't want Chelsea job because one of reasons was how many changes to squad were needed, and all the fans can see it, now there not performing ( like last year ) are calling for a new manager and one to be sacked after 20 odd games. Good riddance.

Matt martin

1.) 12 Feb 2019 20:00:06
Pep Guardiola had a difficult first season at Man City. He got criticism from all directions. Anyhow, rather than wielding the axe the Man City board backed the manager and overhauled the squad and got him a new gk, new defence and other additions. We know what pep acheieved the following season. Man City is being run brilliantly since the massive spending spree.

Now rather than backing the players and sacking the manager, the board need to make the right decision here. As fans we are all are getting bored and frustrated with the same situation occuring over and over again. The players ain't good enough and a few are aging, in general they are very inconsistent. We have finished 1st, 10th, 1st and 5th in the last 4 seasons which sums up the inconsistency.

It is obvious the manager needs to be backed here. A new manager will bring a new lease of life temporarily, however how long before it happens to the new manager? History says maybe 2 year before the cycle restarts?

I'm not saying Sarri is a blessing from god as he has faults. He needs to learn quick and fast. He needs to give younger players a chance, he needs to be brave and make decisions like dropping Alonso, Willian etc when they underperform and give CHO, RLC, AC and Emerson more of a chance. Obviously he needs to be less predictable with his substitutions etc and be proactive and look to change the team shape during matches when we are struggling.

Sarri still has my backing!


2.) 12 Feb 2019 20:18:42
He has mine too, he is being stubborn and needs to maybe “ tweak” a few things, but these players, driving me mad, Jose. was too much and players had enough. Conte tough training and intense. Sarri, too tactical and don’t understand what he wants, such s big change needed. And I think a DOF who has some sort of philosophy will be ideal, buy world class 11 and add a couple decent subs and fill 3/ 4 of subs with academy. We’re Chelseafc and have 2 world class players, we need more and we need patience.


3.) 12 Feb 2019 21:39:29
Sarri needs to stay. We cannot just keep sacking managers. Us fans can clearly see the team is not good enough but the board keep finding it easier to sack the manager instead of pumping the cash in to buy quality players. My main concern though regarding the manager is his determination to keep playing Jorginho. It’s common sense to play kante next to Jorginho to do the defensive side of the game allowing Jorginho then to have more space when we have the ball. I think if sarri doesn’t implement this simple change then he’s making it easy for the Board to let him go. Not only would this change help the players in question but the defence would benefit from the extra cover and maybe give us a better threat going forward by having Pedro, hazard and Willian playing behind Higuain.


4.) 12 Feb 2019 21:47:40
but we will we r a businesses.


5.) 12 Feb 2019 21:49:07
Matt,! i don’t think some our players need to talk to their agents for a move there performances on the field means they are toast anyway!

As I’ve already said Pep finished 4th in his first season and then with the backing of his board got new players in.

Klopp, I think has managed 8th, 4th and 4th and it’s only now you can see Liverpool looking like the finished article.

The board and fans were told this was a project and Sarri made it very clear his methods would take time to get a across to the team.

I do think his substitutions are boring and lack imagination. I also think he has been to loyal to certain players.


6.) 12 Feb 2019 22:53:03
Seriously haven't you people woken up and smelt the coffee yet?
Sarris nonsense will not work in the PL and his disciple is the biggest waste of money to ever have played for the club and I have been supporting Chelsea since the mid 60's .
The damage he is doing to our club is significant and can only get worse.
Do Juve/ Bayern/ Barca/ Real/ Athletico/ Dortmund/ Benfica etc etc lose 0-4 and 0-6?
No it's a disgrace and unacceptable so quit making excuses.


7.) 13 Feb 2019 06:44:32
Turvey i don't think you are seeing the bugger picture and your opinion is that of a instant successfan. I do appreciate your input but i think if Sarri was brought in to be the long term futureplan for our club then maybe we need more time with the correct players.


8.) 13 Feb 2019 07:52:30
Turvey I'm sorry to say but unfortunately being an instant success fan won't be beneficial for you at this time. Success won't happen anytime soon. Its clear that we need massive investment and also one that a DOF should oversee.

Anyway you need to think about the future direction of the club. Today's papers are linking us to Zidane. Obviously its rumours but if anthing like that did happen then I will officially say that our board are lost, you can't plan a massive style change and give it a few months only and expect to be the finished article! You can't keep chopping and changing managers and crave Klopp's style of football, Pep's style of football and Poch's style of football. It took years of sweat and determination and massive investment for others to get the success. Zidane goes against the whole saga of appointing Sarri in the first place, different managers.

Anyway I am confident that the board will do the right thing. I am more confident that the team will overcome come this and turn it around. 6-0 is a massive wakeup for Sarri.


9.) 13 Feb 2019 09:55:02
Sarri nonsense, conte nonsene, Jose’s nonsene, Turvey. What you think of Roy hodgson, knows the league, steady in a job. Has few youngsters playing doesn’t really come with a lot of nonsense, be ideal would be?


10.) 13 Feb 2019 09:55:36
Or maybe your Emperor Sarri's got new clothes
!?


11.) 13 Feb 2019 12:55:45
Mrs Costa, I never wanted Sarri as our manager, I wanted Conte to satay and the players who were moaning sold.

Some posters gave me pelters saying Sarri was different gravy and he MUST be our manager. These posters also criothe board for the delay in hiring him.

So, I’m asking the board and fans, just for once, let’s see a project through.


12.) 13 Feb 2019 15:17:31
Instant success fan that really is funny. Where were you in the 1980's when we were at a low ebb to say the least.
Which big club do you know lost the last two away games 0-10?
Sarri and his 'conductor' (he would do alright on the buses) are not cut our for the PL.
Its just too simple for some to grasp.


13.) 13 Feb 2019 18:24:10
Mrs Costa, lol, Sarri's in the altogether, a perfect analogy for Sarri-ball.

"Look at Sarri! Look at Sarri! Look at Sarri, Sarri, Sarri!
Sarri is in the altogether, but altogether, the altogether
He's altogether as naked as the day that he was born
Sarri is in the altogether, but altogether, the altogether
It's altogether the very least Sarri has ever worn"

Summon the court physician! Call an intermission!
Sarri is wide open to ridicule and scorn.

Sarri is in the altogether, but all together, the altogether,
He's altogether as naked as the day that he was born
And it's altogether too chilly a morn!


14.) 13 Feb 2019 19:37:53
MDW, I think you might have to much time on your hands!

Did make me chuckle!


15.) 14 Feb 2019 00:34:25
Lets see through the worst manager the club has appointed since AVB?
Infact the worst full time manager appointed under Roman. AVB had won something at least in his early thirties.


16.) 14 Feb 2019 12:13:27
All very well saying 'stick with Sarri' and I hate the merry-go-round that we have with managers as much as anyone but we are being suckered by the press and 'Sarri-ball', you never heard 'Ferguson ball, Guardiola ball etc' it is just football management and coaching and he seems to have a fixed vision only and to tell the world he is not changing when that vision has not produced any silver ware is rather naive. He looks awful on the touchline, picks the same selection of players week in, week out regardless of performance, has a 'pet' that looks out of his depth, tactically and sub wise he looks lost. I don't want to see another manager with his version of the future but Sarri has to be on borrowed time if he doesn't change.


 

 

05 Feb 2019 18:47:49
Come on Ed's, hazard? New deal or leaving?

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}


1.) 05 Feb 2019 20:28:47
Thanks Ed002, guess if Madrid come for him he’ll d’avoir it if not he’d sign.

Still his decision would be made at the end of the season.


2.) 05 Feb 2019 20:59:19
I read today that he will make an announcement tommorow maybe that's wrong.


3.) 05 Feb 2019 22:00:34
The statement about his made his mind up was from 2 months ago and for an upcoming documentary, I’m sure the club know either way. Or at least I hope so.


4.) 05 Feb 2019 22:45:33
He was always going to leave, he’s always said that he wanted to play for Madrid, and considering his age, it seems like it’s now or never. He’s one of the best in the world, so we should get a large amount for him, maybe a player (Isco) plus money. Pepe should be the main player to go for, though Chiesa would also be a decent addition.


5.) 06 Feb 2019 15:41:06
Hazard says he’s made a decision but is it his to make? He’s not going to come cheap so the ball is in Real Madrid’s court, not his. We’ve known all along if they made an offer he’d want to go so this is meaningless to me unless his decision is he wants to commit his future to us.


 

 

29 Jan 2019 10:41:19
Where have these Christian eriksen rumours come from. Surely levy wouldn't sell to us or united. Ed's?

Matt martin

{Ed001's Note - Levy has said there was an enquiry from someone in the Prem, that is all I know. From what he has said privately if enough was offered they would have to sell, but publicly I am sure he will say that he is not for sale.}


1.) 29 Jan 2019 11:30:47
Eriksen Jorginho kante would be a pretty special midfield.


2.) 29 Jan 2019 11:43:21
eriksen trialled at the club twice when he was young and was rejected as too small / slight for prem league.


3.) 29 Jan 2019 11:50:44
He's THE player that completes the team. Perfect no 10.


4.) 29 Jan 2019 13:21:50
I think RLC needs a proper chance. He could be the closest thing to Lampard for us.


5.) 29 Jan 2019 14:14:24
I adore Eriksen. Scores goals, gets assists and has a deadly set piece. Plus it would be a hammerblow to Spurs fanbase. Would make Son, Alli and Kane consider their futures too. If he was available under £70m, I would snap him up in a heartbeat.


6.) 29 Jan 2019 14:25:00
I thought Rriksen wasn’t looking to ever play for us as we rejected him twice. Honestly, can’t see him signing.


7.) 29 Jan 2019 15:53:01
Absolutely no chance - or about as much chance of Hazard joining Spurs!


8.) 29 Jan 2019 17:31:38
the only comparison of Lampard and RLC is the both English. Lampard passing range was top quality, he was tough and could tackle, wa never injured, and obviously he had the best football brain in getting into the box late and scored for fun, knew when to shoot and is up there with assists, RLC is still young so will learn but his passesing isn’t close, his shooting isn’t close, holds on to ball to long. And doesn’t get stuck in or work half as hard as Lampard would. RLC goes past players and has quick feet, but that is it, completely different types of players.

Obviously nothing in stone and we don't know either way Romans' thinking but I'd be sad for him to sell us but also excited at what new buyer would be like, few of our problems have come from above, I don't know if a new buyer or a good director of footballs what's needed,

Go 4231 now and get willian Cho and cheek on. We have been boring this game.

Matt martin

1.) 17 Mar 2019 17:51:28
Such a boring performance.
RLC should be playing. I don't understand what barkley brings to the team.


2.) 17 Mar 2019 17:56:03
Disagree Matt. I don’t think we have been boring. We bossed the game totally in the first half and should have scored three or four.

I agree Everton are average but if you don’t punish teams when you are top you generally pay the consequences!


3.) 17 Mar 2019 17:58:08
Agree, it’s just how predictable we are, thought Sarri has turned a corner a bit but now back to this, Alonso is so slow and can not get up and down pitch near enough, Pedro is so the egos or terrible, no in between,


4.) 17 Mar 2019 18:02:34
Great save Kepa no one following up crap defending Alonso he’s been terrible today goal came down his side now cost us a penalty I know Sarri doesn’t have a great choice at lb but Emerson had been improving after a run of consecutive games.


5.) 17 Mar 2019 18:06:34
To be fair, I think Barkley played decently today. That being said, I don't think he brought anything that RLC wouldn't have brought.
Overall what a rubbishty perfomance, once again against a team that sits deep. We really don't know how to take our chances or deal with pressure. Hope Sarri sorts it out soon.
Europe League has got to be our hope now.


6.) 17 Mar 2019 18:12:29
We’ve got to keep Cho his pace and driving at the opposition has given us a completely different dimension since his introduction.


7.) 17 Mar 2019 18:13:05
The second half we have been SOFT as usual.

Alonso has had a poor second half along with Pedro who has been anonymous!

I’m fed up with saying “we didn’t deserve to lose” but it has one if those games again.

I fully expect pundits, papers and posters to start the chorus of Sarri out.


8.) 17 Mar 2019 18:21:06
The frustrating thing is Cho and Ruben were both very good midweek so why not start them Tom b
Alonso was great at wing back but he’s not good enough for full back simple so with a transfer ban looming I’d be tempted to give Aina a shot at lb.


9.) 17 Mar 2019 18:29:12
Come on Tom, we had a good 8 min in first half then it went back to sideways passes and overplaying, create so little, another weekend ruined by the football. We had huge chance to go to 3rd and with two games we’ve removed any hope of 4th not because of the points gap as it’s only 3 points but because we will keep slipping up. I’ve been supportive of Sarri but it’s one step forward and two back, Torn apart at times by this Everton side, who were ripped apart by Newcastle less than a week ago. Everton not beat top 6 side in 2 years. comfortable 85min for them, Sarri will be replaced and now I’m ok about it. Bournemouth Watford wolves x2 Everton x2, scrape past Fulham, we play with zero energy, no zip, and no cutting edge.


10.) 17 Mar 2019 18:30:12
I agree Danny but we played so well in the first half Sarri’s team selection seamed valid.

What price Jamie Redknapp coming out with his usual tosh in the pundit summary?


11.) 17 Mar 2019 18:40:11
Danny, I think Aina has all but been sold mate.

Reece James will be IMO the first choice right back next season.


12.) 17 Mar 2019 18:49:04
Really I was thinking playing Aina at lb mate.


13.) 17 Mar 2019 18:52:00
I don’t expect anything to change for the remainder of this season.

I will remain optimistic but I am bored with the team selection and generally the substitutions.

I want Odoi, RLC, Christensen and Emerson to start the remaining league games but I’m not confident it will happen.


14.) 17 Mar 2019 18:56:28
No I completely agree if we can all see this why can’t sarri it’s so obvious those 4 are better than what we’ve got all that’s going to happen is us loosing all 4 over playing time.


15.) 17 Mar 2019 18:57:06
And come the semi’s and maybe even the Prague game he will go for his idea of strongest 11, so it’ll be back to Cho RLC Emerson etc on bench.


16.) 17 Mar 2019 19:12:04
That’s my point Matt. Give the four of them more league minutes for the remaining league fixtures and we will then see if they are ready to start the final, if we get to it.


17.) 17 Mar 2019 19:12:52
That I don’t agree with Matt if you’re only playing certain players cup games you should stick with them throughout imo if we win doing that he’ll be lauded if we loose he’ll be slated can’t really win tbf mate.


18.) 18 Mar 2019 08:02:04
I agree Tom I thought we should be a couple up but it’s when we don’t take them we need to be more resolute and I don’t think Alonso gives us that but not just him tbf but 2 weeks off now to reflect and try and regroup for the big push until the end of the season it’s going to be a very interesting summer if the ban doesn’t get lifted
Do you think Sarri is the man to take us into next season developing what we’ve got in regards to younger players if we can’t buy anyone?


 

 

17 Mar 2019 17:38:54
disaster second half, absolutely horrendous, couldn't break them down and now they have a lead to protect. We really are blowing every chance we have to get into top 4, I really don't think this is a good Everton team either.

Matt martin

1.) 17 Mar 2019 18:01:44
We’re seriously going to be screwed next season.


2.) 17 Mar 2019 18:44:48
TruBlu, why? Kepa James Rudi Christensen Emerson Mount Kante RLC Pulisic Abraham CHO - win or lose, I would love to see that happen.


3.) 17 Mar 2019 18:57:17
Completely agree mdw.


 

 

14 Mar 2019 17:13:27
€50m for militao of Porto is great business for Madrid, made me laugh reading that Zidane been there only a few days and a signed top player like it all happened by him and not the club before he arrived, what I've seen of him looks good player, hoped we were linked, hopefully linked to Marquinhos.

Matt martin

1.) 14 Mar 2019 18:38:17
They’re going to have a massive summer they reckon Marcelo will stay now too he was going to Juve. I expect Hazard and Icardi to both join.


2.) 15 Mar 2019 00:03:53
And Eriksen.


3.) 15 Mar 2019 10:07:06
It looks like all the best players are available at the moment when we have a transfer ban. Today I am hearing that Umtiti could be available in the summer too.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has no interest in these players.}


 

 

10 Mar 2019 14:59:54
Wolves happy to have 9 behind the ball. Yet Chelsea will be labelled boring.

Matt martin

1.) 10 Mar 2019 15:27:21
But wolves go ahead,


2.) 10 Mar 2019 15:52:07
Just terible mate. Hazard is the only one who tries to do anything.

We are just so static, when we have a vall no midfield player was running to the box. I don't know why we needed kovavic for this game and why he wasn't substitued after half time.



Can moan here whole day as we were rubbish.


3.) 10 Mar 2019 15:58:16
It’s a funny old game but typical Chelsea.

Come on my MIGHTY BLUES.


4.) 10 Mar 2019 16:10:57
Like a stuck record but it’s goals from midfield, kovecic offers nothing going forward and is a no6 not no8 kante is all action engine, 3rd position in midfield needs to have goals in them, RLC takes too long in front of goal, does everything until time to pull the trigger, Barkley is “ meh “ and kov is deeper player who hasn’t scored in over 100 games lol.

What’s he like? Dazza / ed / anybody?

Matt martin

{Ed001's Note - I have added him to the list for a profile but a quick precis is that he is a bit of a tank but does not really score enough goals, from the little I have seen of him. By tank, I mean he just bludgeons through defences, rather than being an ultra skilful forward.}

Dale Alli, and how many others have come from championship to be established first team players in a top 6 team? We do need to get Reece James and Abraham in and around squad, but a transfer ban and relying on these players and thinking we can compete for too 4 is a stretch, we know full well the win the title you need quality in depth let alone relying on them from the start. The way to do it is by adding 1 or 2 amongst the hazards and kantes etc, like Cho and RLC and Ampadu but a bit more than we are at the moment.

If anyone thinks doing well in the championship I’d close go prem league then there are problems imo, Hanford has proved time and time again his good on championship but no good making the step up. Playing against golf players and then up against seasoned internationals and world class players in most positions is a bit of a leap, if we get a ban and have to use these players on loan then too 4 would be a miracle. It’s tough enough with the team we have with the likes of hazard and kante, players like baker who was another next big thing who can hit the balm with both feet doesn’t get alook in the championship. It’d be the dream to have al these kids be the ones who make it but unfortunately we over hype them, Mount has shown in patches his a good player but not consistent and has gone missing yet we want him up against De Bruyne and pogba etc. Come on.

We’ve always had big names at the club and match winners, in this current team there’s no names that jump out other than hazard, who else will get 15 odd goals and 15 odd assists? Look st Liverpool for example, salah not in great form but mane steps up. when hazards off who steps up?
