Ed's, any information on players possibly leaving this window,

Matt martin

{Ed001's Note - not at the moment no sorry.}


1.) 09 Jul 2018 21:54:22
Any news on the managerial situation?
Please.

{Ed001's Note - only that Napoli are being difficult to deal with even with Roman's involvement.}


2.) 10 Jul 2018 06:58:51
Well if it doesn’t happen we need to add there name to Everton’s who we should never deal with again. They string us along with no intention of dealing.

{Ed001's Note - Everton?}


3.) 10 Jul 2018 11:59:26
I think Andrew is on about the ordeal with John Stones years ago ed001?

{Ed001's Note - no idea what he is on about sorry.}

Golovin looking super little player and under Sarri could shine, like Mertens and insigne, has pace, tricky and end product. Also seri, has that hard working mentality and also keeps ball well and has bit of end product. Possible problems with these targets and fekir and bailey too if interested is we'd have a small squad. not much height in the team. Malcom I don't know anything about but him and martial physically good, Sarri likes teams that really press and keep the ball, don't think martial is pressing type, bit of excitement back.

Matt martin

1.) 20 Jun 2018 01:13:20
I agree, however we have a fairly tall backline and Giroud. I'm not sure having a tall side offensively is really that nessacary, our problem is ball movement, it has stagnated over the last 2 years. We need that flair and creativity and pressure to create goals. That's what I think.


2.) 20 Jun 2018 02:12:05
Would personally prefer Golovin over Seri as he's younger and seems to have more of an end product imo. As for our targets, if you believe what you read then we're interested in Seri, Golovin, Bailey, Malcom, Lewandowski, Martial, ndombele, Rugani, Manolas, Higuain and Vecino. Obviously these are just rumours and there may be more but it does seem like Martial, Bailey, Seri, Golovin and another CB is the main priority atm. One thing that we have going our way is that nearly all of our targets are not at the world cup so we don't need to rush things.

And when you consider the amount of players the board may look to move along it will take time. As for Sarri's play style Martial will suit it more than what the other strikers we've been linked with will. May not be a pressing type but under Sarri playing the number 9 role he'll likely adapt to it.

That goes for Hazard and RLC aswell since they're not the pressing type either. I also wouldn't expect things to go a lot quicker in the transfer market either once/ if Sarri is appointed. Players like Martial and Bailey may go on right until the end of the window.


3.) 20 Jun 2018 09:50:41
Golovin and Seri don't have the same role on the pitch.


4.) 20 Jun 2018 09:55:29
I think Zielinski will fit right into our midfield if you consider what we need and lack in our central midfield department. He's game is similar to DeBruyne's. He's attacking, plays central well and can combat. Good linkup play, he's quick with good pace/ can startup counter attacks, good shot, eye for a pass, can dribble, creative and is at a young age.

I prefer we got him to Seri or Golovin. I don't know if we can pull him out of Napoli if these reports about not signing Napoli players is true but Zielinski is one player I think can replace Fabregas and Drinkwater at once and free up room for Loftus Cheek in the squad (crazy huh? )

I think, with Sarri's brand of football, Bakayoko can easily readapt to be like Seri cos you can see those flashes in Bakayoko's game.

Ed's anything on manager front, few papers saying it'll be announced in coming days, I'm still hoping Chelsea / Napoli come to agreement,

Matt martin

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate sorry, not heard anything new.}


1.) 04 Jun 2018 09:44:59
No worries, what’s your take on blanc as his been linked?

{Ed001's Note - he did not really impress me but he was only learning at the time he was managing. If he has learnt the right things from his time, he might go on to be great. I have to say though, he never seemed like he was a good coach to me.}

Di Marizio has said that Chelsea and Courtois have stopped negotiating over contract and looking to sell ASAP or risk losing on Bosman in 2019, Allison Becker our number one target, and Sarri can buy out contract for £1.5m which Chelsea will cover but my guess that'll make any future dealings with Napoli already hard even harder.

Matt martin

1.) 31 May 2018 00:04:11
How reliable is it that Sarri can buy out from his contract for 1.5m.


2.) 31 May 2018 01:25:06
Well that's what Napoli are paying sarri pa I think. Assuming they don't agree to release him then they will have to continue to pay him 1.5 m a year in addition to Carlos wage. Off course if this is true the why didn't Napoli accept our offer (if it's true off course) . Either we have not offered £4 m to release sarri and waiting to cover the 1.5 m or the 1.5 m release buyout is not correct and sarri will have to stay another year with Napoli paying his wage,
No logic in Napoli not accepting our offer If there is a 1.5 m release figure. So we obviously don't know the true situation.


3.) 31 May 2018 02:26:29
Read post by TOMB, think from today it’s negotiable?


4.) 31 May 2018 08:31:10
I really don't know about this 1.5m buyout. It's hard to say what his contract stipulates, however it is a disgrace of Napoli to charge a release fee of 8m for a manager that has been replaced and has zero responsibilities.

In the other hand Chelsea need a manager asap, I heard they had a discussion in Milan yesterday with Sarri and his reps so I am assuming this will continue today. Hopefully there is some sort of agreement. Either Sarri threatens to resigns And Napoli lowers fee or Chelsea pay the 8m. After today, it will Be virtually ridiculous to get Sarri as Napoli will want more.


5.) 31 May 2018 08:46:29
3 options

Don’t wait and just pay the release clause. Cost to Chelsea: €8m. Simple, clean-ish, most expensive. Deal gets done promptly, enabling the club to move forward with the rest of the summer’s plans.

Don’t wait, but negotiate a lower release clause. ADL may be playing hardball, but he surely doesn’t want to be stuck paying two head coaches for too long. Some reports in Italy claim that an agreement could possibly be found at €4m. Cost to Chelsea just €4m, and the deal still gets done promptly. (A previous version of this rumor included throwing in David Luiz instead of cash as the transfer fee. )
Wait and see what happens, to see what the next move is in this “complicated chess game”.

The release clause expires May 31. At that point, Sarri can resign, and leave ADL with nothing. It’s unclear if Sarri himself (or Chelsea, by proxy) would have to pay a penalty or simply just forgo any compensation (which, if he takes another job, would be academic anyway) . It’s also unclear if Sarri can even “just resign”, as previous reports made it clear the Napoli would have to “accept” the resignation. Sarri could certainly walk off the job, but it’s doubtful that the regulatory powers that be would look upon that too kindly. Getting rung up for a breach of contract is not a good way to start a new life in England. None of that may be a valid way to do business, either, but who has time to challenge such things? Either way, Chelsea’s summer plans would be significantly delayed, and time’s already ticking away. Plus, you never know what sort of Jedi mind tricks De Laurentiis will think of in the meantime. Are the few millions saved really that important? Is the precedent it might set that dangerous? ADL certainly appears to be making his play for these free bonus stacks of cash.

Fred to United is really good deal, a younger Fernandinho, would of done well at us, can do all the jobs in midfield. Need this manager and director of football mess sorted ASAP before others start shopping n we still doing interviews.

Matt martin

1.) 25 May 2018 11:57:19
I don't see anything he can do that MvG or RLC can't.


2.) 25 May 2018 12:02:02
I am thinking the same thing too. Other clubs would have cherry picked all the good players before we get our manager and Director of football issues sorted.
Eg. Arsenal serious for Seri
- Liverpool serious for N. Fekir etc.


3.) 25 May 2018 12:19:29
RJ28P, are you being serious?


4.) 25 May 2018 13:13:50
Our club will sell players and buy players but I hope they leave places open for likes of RLC, Odoi and Mount.
Van Ginkel is interesting as I’m sure he would be a better option than Drinkwater.


5.) 25 May 2018 13:19:21
Sarri's £7m release clause is due to expire at the end of this month, so maybe we might need to wait until month-end for any serious activity (that is if Chelsea will be announcing Sarri as its next coach) ; but its looking like Chelsea's going to pay Conte off cos there's no club looking to take him off our hands at the moment.


6.) 25 May 2018 14:09:29
obinna, Sarri is currently unemployed so his release clause is the grand sum of ZERO.

The guy is a free agent.


7.) 25 May 2018 15:30:29
dihanio, someone else told me otherwise and he's often right, let's wait and see.


8.) 25 May 2018 17:56:07
As far as I'm aware Sarri is still employed but to zero capacity so I think there is a release clause there.

15 Jul 2018 13:45:05
The Higuain rumours are most baffling, what are we going going for soon to be 31 year old striker who's best days are slowing behind him. Icardi is the one.

Matt martin

1.) 15 Jul 2018 13:53:07
I agree Matt I won't be happy if he comes in as his best days are behi d him I would rather go with bats and morata this year rather than waste money on him with sarri coming in it may change their fortunes for us next year look at Moses before conte came nobody would have imagined him in our first 11 but because of the style played under conte he was suited to it so with the more attacking football morata and bats could be very good for us.


2.) 15 Jul 2018 17:11:46
Loads of posters on here mention Icardi as though it's a viable option. Icardi will not be leaving Italy for England.


3.) 15 Jul 2018 19:26:29
how many trophies has icardi won at inter they are not the top side in Italy so why would a move to Chelsea not be possible we are a team that wins trophies point me to a team in England in last decade that delivers trophys more consistently in England the prem leauge not to mention his wages being greatly improved especially if hazard leaves.


4.) 15 Jul 2018 22:12:21
36, 24, 16, Higuains last 3 years, blokes on massive decline and coming to harder league is ridiculous for us to genuinely be interested, Icardi is in an inter side that’s not blessed with lots of creativity like Juve but Icardi scores goals, I have read him and his missus are trouble thou. Sarri likes his striker to press to, Morata could do that and more creativeness around him would do better, plus Michy feeds off wingers and his movement in,


 

 

14 Jul 2018 20:09:45
I was in such a good mood until Hazard confirms our worst fear, anybody wants to leave for Madrid I understand. and Barca. Biggest in the world. But who do we replace him with, mahrez should of been ours, that's the concern. £150m + but who is there to get.

Matt martin

1.) 14 Jul 2018 20:18:57
Spot on Matt. Only one player better in the World Cup for me and he would never join us.
I want the player at the club not the money but if he goes I would think £200mil minimum.


2.) 14 Jul 2018 20:39:56
If Hazard and Willian go what are the options? Malcom, Bailey, Brandt and Zaha all would be decent options for me. None are Eden Hazard though.


3.) 14 Jul 2018 21:07:08
I love him but if he goes he goes nothing we will be able to do.


4.) 14 Jul 2018 21:19:04
Him going isn’t the problem it’s replaceing him. Zaha hasn’t the consistency or end product, Malcom is unproven, Bailey the same, some these people not ready to start at a big club let alone fill hazards boots, asesnsio / bale, Dybala? Need a to be big name otherwise we are on the decline, Ed’s can I ask you who would be good replacement, not who were linked to but in an ideal world,

{Ed001's Note - Bailey would be excellent, I like Malcom as well. Asensio is probably the ideal though.}


5.) 14 Jul 2018 21:19:27
People may not agree but I think we need to get back to basics and maybe not a player with the flair of hazard but heung min son, already proven in prem and gets a decent amount of goals.
Having said this I wouldn’t complain if Isco was part of a deal but I really hope hazard stays but we cannot have the same situation at the end of every season. This is where the club needs to come back in and either spend big on quality players to keep him or sell him now for a kings ransom.


6.) 14 Jul 2018 21:46:48
Lets be honest, it doesn't matter how much We recieve if Hazard should be sold We will not be able to replace Him directly.

Football is about opinions ofcourse but I believe there are only a small handful of players as good as or better than Hazard. I would say Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar and Bale.

Of those Ronaldo has just moved to Juve and is more of a Striker these days, Messi will be impossible to pry away from Barca, Neymar would cost the GDP of a medium sized country and wouldn't entertain the Prem and Bale I couldn't see coming to Chelsea if He did return to England plus His injury record is a major concern.

Beyond these Guys, everyone else are inferior to Hazard imo.

Still no use crying over spilt milk and if He does go We'll just have to get on with it.

KTBFFH!


7.) 14 Jul 2018 21:50:18
I agree with Ed001, Asensio would be ideal. If you think about it, signing Asensio at 22 would be the same as signing Eden at 21. Boatloads of talent, very young and ready to prove their talent. It won’t happen, but I’d love it!


8.) 14 Jul 2018 22:12:56

Great to see you happy for a change Matt.


 

 

14 Jul 2018 09:24:30
Sarri in with lack of winning experience, plays great football and players really take to him. Add in Zola and cudicini to his staff ( Steve Holland and Terry in would be immense ) and there's that connection to our club prem league knowledge, Europa league silver lining is players like mount Hudson-Odoi Ampadu will get time and be amongst first team OR they will get a loan to derby where lamps and Morris know them and will get beer out them, Jorginho almost done apparently, linked strongly to few others, Higuain in I just don't get, for a striker that age I'd go Cavani but Sarri knows Higuain, pre season has started players willl be back in few weeks, now I'm excited again about our Chelsea, hopefully linked to some inside forwards / wingers that suit Sarri and run behind, Guedes Bailey etc.

Pavard would be such a good upgrade on Moses, Pacey and has and engine, Good World Cup will no doubt put price up but his young and would be worth it,

Matt martin

{Ed001's Note - Pavard is a centre back playing out of position at full back for France.}


1.) 13 Jul 2018 21:00:49
Ha ha World Cup fever.


2.) 13 Jul 2018 22:56:17
Haha yeah defiantly World Cup fever, his looked so good and going forward looked good, didn’t realise he was naturally a CB,


3.) 14 Jul 2018 10:19:38
We all see players we would like during the World Cup that is the great bit about it.
For me tho there is one player.
Loftus-Cheek I am a big admirer of him. People think he is lazy but that is just the way he carries himself much the same as Yaya.
Now we have Sarri I hope he gives him the chance I can’t wait for the season.
COME ON CHELS!

Brandt / bailey should be option anyway to cover Pedro, and hazard leaving not few can come in, Asensio be good, maybe Dembele of Barcelona? Dybala, big name has to come in,

Yeah it’s june and World Cup year. but we knew the situation 4 months ago. should of acted before World Cup, and Sarri could ( maybe still does ) have an input / opinion on any players he could see feature, how many weeks til start of season. 6? Pre season. Players in and out. going to be hectic and expensivegettinf targets ( IMO )
