David ornstein ( reliable regarding arsenal ) said If we can sign players we're interested in zaha and Ryan sessegnon.

Matt martin

1.) 14 May 2019 22:14:46
Sessegnon will go to Sours so not that reliable.


2.) 14 May 2019 23:26:28
If the ban stands then Chelsea will trigger the extension in Giroud's contract and look to recall Batshuayi or Abraham.

If the ban is lifted then we are likely to find out in July leaving it bang in the middle of the transfer window.

Chelsea are very much interested in Coutinho as a potential Hazard replacement. Asensio and Zaha are aalso mentioned.

There is also interest in Cavani for the striker position. PSG looking to sell him due to his recent fall out with Neymar.

Personally I would settle for Coutinho and Cavani. Coutinho is a proven player, he is still young and on form is world class. He is the ideal haaard replacement for me.


3.) 14 May 2019 23:47:20
David Ornstein is of BBC so the source could be reliable but Ryan Sessegnon's interest doesn't make sense.


4.) 15 May 2019 02:21:58
Cavani would go into sane bracket as shevchenko falcao patio and Higuaín, a once world class striker wring end of career,


5.) 15 May 2019 05:49:34
Agree with you Matt, cavani and Coutinho are not the answers,
we have to think long term as well.

And will need a strong defender as priority.
I don't think christensen is there yet and needs more time. Zouma also needs another season on loan, im still not convinced.

would pick costa over cavani
zaha is a good candidate but still raw

hazards replacement will be hard to find . we should work on getting the whole team stronger rathere than look for one player who can make the difference.

RLC will have a next season where we will know if he can be a Lampard for us.

What we need is a Leader . i still can't see a strong candidate in our team at the moment.


6.) 15 May 2019 11:52:40
Coutinho is best as a number 10 we don’t play that so it’s a waste of money. Sabe, Ziyech or Pepe should be our marquee if it’s frozen along with Jovic. Zaha is selfish and not a team player.


7.) 15 May 2019 11:53:01
Cavani is a massive no. Coutinho is in poor form and suits a system mainly as a #10 so a big no. We need young hungry players. Zaha is selfish and all himself.

Jovic, Sane or Pepe for RW, Romagnoli (A Leader for CB) and Chilwell for LB would be my options.


8.) 15 May 2019 17:04:43
Agree, coutinho is a 10 and if we were to change and get a ten why spend double the money that we could get fekir for, we need a player who can play wide and score, Pepe Ziyeck sane, but also a striker, we all want jovic. then a midfielder who can play in a 3 but score goals, Bruno Fernandes, Kai havertz, Van De Beek, someone like that.


9.) 15 May 2019 19:29:26
Unpopular opinion here, but I would actually think Zaha would be a wonderful signing. got to say that I haven't seen Cavani so much the last year, but I really love him as a striker, and really he can't be worse than any of what we've got. Also, I think Coutinho might be a decent signing. None of us really know if Pepe would make it in the PL, but Coutinho has proven so much here.


10.) 15 May 2019 19:56:26
I also think that Zaha would fit really well. He'd have to work hard in the press mind.


11.) 15 May 2019 23:11:20
When talking about a 'lack of leader', can someone answer why David Luiz is never mentioned as a possible. Yes, he can be a bit hot-headed, but he is passionate, committed and, unlike Azpi, is not afraid to voice his concerns on the pitch.


 

 

13 May 2019 20:02:26
" lots of different but very reliable sources are all claiming after Europa league hazard will be announced as fee of around £100m agreee ".

Matt martin

1.) 13 May 2019 22:07:54
I wanted him to stay but I’m now so bored with the whole situation I just want it all over and done with asap!


2.) 14 May 2019 08:17:28
Said that a year ago Tom mate just say your going everyone knows all this cloak and dagger stuff is tedious
Even if they haven't agreed terms if hazard just said I would love to go to real but waiting on clubs agreeing I'd be happy enough with that
But all this I will decide after europa league final I have told Chelsea of my decision and I will let fans know then bore off.


3.) 14 May 2019 08:20:45
Nothing will be announced anyway till after EL final.

But indeed, I want the situation to be clear as soon as possible as well. The club need to know where it stands and which players are needed.

Just praying we don't actually buy Coutinho to replace him.


4.) 14 May 2019 09:37:41
It his not for him to say what he wants just because we are asking him to . many factors need to be considered and it has to be in agreement with the us (his current club) and his futyre club.


I think the club knew Hazard's decision last summer window and we asked him to stay another year, which he did.
Fair play . he is chelsea thru n thru and am happy for his services for us and wish him well in Madrid.

Thank you Hazard. KTBFFH.


5.) 14 May 2019 11:27:20
If he was Chelsea thru and thru he wouldn't be leaving.


6.) 14 May 2019 11:56:15
I know he's only got 1 year left on his deal but £100m still seems like not very much given the likes of Dembele and Coutinho went for a fair bit more.


7.) 14 May 2019 12:10:00
Just to be clear Matt, I read €100m not £100m- which is it?


8.) 14 May 2019 13:28:13
All of this seems a bit silly - it is obvious he is going or he would have signed a new contract by now. And good luck to him - he has done us proud.

I have heard 100m euros (£86m) - about right with only a year left on contract.

Jackson, I totally agree about Coutinho - please no. James Rodriquez at £35m or Coutinho at £100m? No contest.


9.) 14 May 2019 15:49:27
Probably € mate rather than pounds, €100 - I’d put that on no more than a 2 players, buy class not squad fillers, have loanees for that who are capable, morata and Bakyoko money in I’d imagine €80 for pair? Willian possibly too, Zappacosta? Moses fee? Drinkwater Cahill leaving. We could have income of region of £220m ish - plus back in champions league, Sarri says 1/ 2 players but I bet be more like 3/ 4 plus 2 loanees back, possibly 6 additions to a a team is a lot, ore season and early business ( CAS APPEAL ) is vital.


10.) 14 May 2019 17:25:25
I don't think Coutinho and Hazard are the same kind of player (in terms of their role on the pitch) but Leroy Sane (if he was to be available) is more similar in role to Hazard than Coutinho. But I will honestly want to have Coutinho in the squad if Hazard leaves. So if CAS were to rule in Chelsea's favour, I will rather spend Hazard's cash and cash from another sale (which is a left sided midfielder) on a midfielder with goals (like Bruno Fernandes or Coutinho) and Leroy Sane (whom is a winger/ attacking midfielder)
If a midfielder like Bruno Fernandes or Coutinho was to come in, that could mean Ross Barkley will have to go; cos I think Sarri will prefer to play such midfielder on the left side of midfield- where Loftus Cheek and Barkley plays (in that case, I preferably will want Ross Barkley gone in such a situation) .
In conclusion, I will sell Hazard and Barkley and replace both of them with Leroy Sane (if Mancity would sell) and Bruno Fernandes (or Coutinho) .


11.) 14 May 2019 20:56:07
Ppl make me laugh everyone shouting for Hudson odoi to play now asking for sane.
I would really like to see odoi given the no 10 and just let him play.
Pocket the 100mil euro or pound which ever it is and buy a top top class striker.

Let the midfield be loftus cheek kante jorginho, subs Barkley and mount.


12.) 15 May 2019 00:09:27
Hazard's shoe is so big- that it can swallow a Hudson Odoi, besides Odoi's injury at the moment is quite serious and many players don't come back from it the same (he has to be recovered gradually and getting him back to top form could take a while) .
Besides, I have never seen Hudson Odoi as a replacement for Hazard cos if we must advance after the sale of a great player like Hazard, we need someone that is proven, young and has room for improvement which is a Leroy Sane (that is if CAS favours us and Mancity is willing to sell) . A good example is replacing Courtois with good player like Kepa.
Hudson Odoi will have to be at his best for 3 years to be able to replace Hazard; at the moment, I think Hudson Odoi can replace Pedro or Willian.
Pocket Hazard's money without any capable replacement lined up will mean setting yourself up to fail.


13.) 15 May 2019 08:01:51
If its possible my midfield (in Sarri's 4-3-3 formation) for next season is Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Loftus Cheek, Bruno Fernandes (or Coutinho) . I will sell Ross Barkley.


14.) 15 May 2019 21:00:10
You say he will have to be at his best for 3 years lmfao but you won't play him thank God you ain't our manager.
Give the boy a chance to become a man if it doesn't work then look else where.
Just does my head in people shouting for odoi then not wanting to give him a chance.


15.) 16 May 2019 08:03:25
None of us here is the manager, all we do comment, wish and hope. I don't and can't decide Hudson Odoi's future (and offcourse every right thinking Chelsea fan wants Hudson Odoi to stay at Chelsea and get a chance) .
I have never said that Hudson Odoi shouldn't be given a chance at Chelsea; Is Hudson Odoi good enough to be one of our wingers at the club? I think 100% YES, but I don't think his ability and experience level at the moment can replace Hazard's. Presently, he isn't as good as Hazard- when Hazard joined the club some years back from Lille and he still isn't as good as Hazard at the moment, so why should I see him as being able to replace Hazard? I think the club needs a bigger and better player than Hudson Odoi to replace Hazard if we must be a better team- (post Hazard's departure) .


 

 

02 May 2019 11:07:24
Just rumour from But Alfredo pedulla ( got a few right in the past ) saying if ban is lifted Sarri / Chelsea very keen on luka jovic and will make him a priority.
I think Ed has said in past not happening so I imagine his future is decided .

Matt martin

1.) 02 May 2019 14:05:58
Pedula is a massive fraud. It’s a shame Ed002 has left the building again.


2.) 02 May 2019 14:25:36
I think if the ban is lifted, Chelsea has got to be all over such a striker (as it's clear we need reinforcements in that area) .


3.) 03 May 2019 06:17:27
Agree Obinna.
for rest of the positions, the loanees can fulfil but need a proper goal scoring striker.


4.) 04 May 2019 10:19:22
He’s going to Madrid. We have no hope!


5.) 05 May 2019 12:00:52
2 words, Mauro Icardi.


6.) 06 May 2019 19:56:30
Good player is Icardi but the baggage he comes with. No thanks. I hear a rumour that’s dybala is on the market. I’d take him in a heartbeat.

{Ed002's Note - Dybala is a bit of a luxury player - not a goalscoring striker - and a player who positionally many clubs would need to adapt to.}


7.) 07 May 2019 07:25:20
That’s true Ed002, maybe more suited to Real Madrid, but they are worried about issues arising from the move, from your outstanding review on their page. Could answer one Question though please. Does Higuain have a future at Chelsea or will he be sent back to juve? Thanks again Ed.

{Ed002's Note - It is pointless my answering questions about Chelsea. It will simply lead to abuse and the vegetables whining.}


8.) 07 May 2019 09:42:06
Interesting comment on Dybala ed.002 and thanks for it. Dybala perhaps not the right striker for CFC.


 

 

06 Mar 2019 15:30:36
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.


 

 

16 Feb 2019 21:02:32
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.}

Ed not sure if any these Sarri / Lampard / Allegri rumours are true but can you help clear up anything, is Sarri walking away or being pushed out / mans surely we are not looking to Lampard with 8 months of managerial experience?

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - I really don't want to comment on this. I have explained that the club has no intention of sacking him because that is what the fans want, and they have higher priorities right now.}


1.) 21 May 2019 13:45:11
Glad to here that, I imagine Sarri may want Juve job as big club in Italy, and like u have previously said fans haven’t been great towards him. I don’t think it’s ever been noted how much we missed Steve Holland when he left, would love him back to work with Sarri.


2.) 21 May 2019 14:30:57
I don't think Sarri would fit Juve at the moment. they're in 'win now' mode (especially with ronaldo likely to move on some time soon) and I think they'll be after a 'Man manager' rather than a 'Systems manager' like Sarri.

Actually I think Poch would suit them, and by all accounts his family are largely Juve fans (Marcotti) .


 

 

19 May 2019 18:51:17
Anyone see bale / Zidane situation, as saying if he had a 4th sub he still wouldn't of put bale on, apparently had a row and has said they will try to move him on, Ronaldo / bale / Ramos have ZZ a managerial career when he copied rafa's set up but had backing of players, bale with huge goals to win champ league and cops Del Rey v Barca, hazard. take note the jeered Ronaldo, bale, tbo, stay where your loved, also, . Who'd take bale, personally wouldn't, huge wages and injury prone, ages against him,

Matt martin

1.) 19 May 2019 19:06:11
I think he is only 29 Matt but I’m sure I would take him.


2.) 19 May 2019 19:18:25
Oh right. I did think he was other side of 30, a lot of injuries. Huge wages too. Scored some big goals, shoots from distance which we miss.


3.) 19 May 2019 19:39:17
I appear to have missed out the word “NOT” in my post. Sorry if any confusion.


4.) 19 May 2019 20:19:12
Bale needs to stay away from Chelsea.


5.) 20 May 2019 19:10:37
For his wages I wouldn’t take him. He’s too old and injured too much. Maybe just maybe on a free but otherwise o don’t see the worth. For the 60-80m he’d cost you could get a Pepe or someone similar who don’t have injury issues and are younger.


 

 

19 May 2019 09:17:09
Excited to see Pulisic, hit some form towards end of season. Hard worker, will suit pressing and has that bit end product we miss,

Matt martin

 

 

17 May 2019 17:11:09
Apparently we will be signing kovecic permanently, personally don't think his done near enough to warrant signing. No goals and couple assists, wonder what the fee is,

Matt martin

1.) 17 May 2019 17:52:26
I completely support that we sign him- the guy's versatility in our midfield is awesome. Besides adding goals and assists to his game is something he can work and improve on.


2.) 18 May 2019 09:29:53
obinna, 'besides adding goals and assists to his game' - Sarcasm?


3.) 18 May 2019 10:15:09
Sorry Miss Darren Wood, I don't understand your comment but my point is that-Besides the fact that he's the available choice (cos of the transfer ban), it would make complete sense (to both Sarri and the Board) ; and help the team a lot- to have a midfielder that can play Kante (RM), Jorginho (DM) and Loftus cheek/ Barkley role (LM) in the team; has good box to box runs which he hasn't been doing at Chelsea yet. I also think he's one guy in the team that can play in two or three man central midfield formation (so I think he will do well whether its Sarri or another manager that's in charge of the squad)

I said he can work and improve on adding goals and assists to his game cos- before now, Kovacic played attacking midfielder (during time at Inter-Milan) . Personally, I haven't seen some attributes of his game which I know before now (so I think he will improve or has room for improvement) . His sitting on the bench before now at Real Madrid also did some damage but I think it can be fixed.


4.) 18 May 2019 10:20:18
Yes Matt, he's fee shouldn't be high.


5.) 18 May 2019 16:31:52
40 million for a versatile squad player. Wow squad and fans are really going downhill. Be better off keeping Pasalic after all he is our player.


 

 

17 May 2019 13:49:41
I can see the rumours already. Roma / Milan / Juve / inter Offer Sarri escape and and Allegri Romans' first choice zzz.

Matt martin

1.) 17 May 2019 15:31:20
I would prefer to let Sarri continue the work that he's doing at Chelsea than sign Alegri at the moment. Let's give him a chance for two years.

Piatek fitted that. Mobile and hold up and jovic too, why we got Higuain when he was clearly available didn’t make sense, and jovic seems Madrid bound, Milik maybe as injury free this season and scoring and Sarri signing st Napoli, I like Werner, wide forward type and can play down middle, but if teams just sat deep he wouldn’t be suited as much, list of strikers possible. Maxi Gomez, zapata, Werner, milik, Cutrone ( not for me personally ) lukaku ( doubtful as history and certain person at club doesn’t want him ) Bertrand Traore, eds. who’s the next aguero / tevez type striker, fiery fast goalscorers from South America?

Oh god, it was pretty obvious he didn’t want to be here, the man look miserable and more time on the floor and lacked effort at end. Also told Simone he would join him at athletico as soon as he could, do you think he wants to come back then?
