"Chelsea defence is a mess"
"'They lack leaders "
"Too many individual mistakes"
"Collectively not good enough "

* Chelsea want John stones

Survey this is a non starter. I mean he is literally and English luiz, good on the ball, has a mistake in him almost every game,
We need a leader, not someone who is a child but can't play ahead of two holding midfielders in defence.

{Ed0666's Note - Even I wouldn’t wish John Stones on you lot and I can’t tolerate Chelsea at the best of times

1.) 10 Aug 2020 08:33:13
Seeing headlines like stones to fix Chelsea’s leaking defence, nearly fell over. These people get paid to write about football too,

2.) 10 Aug 2020 09:57:20
Honestly, I share your pain- if truly the headlines like ‘Chelsea linked with John Stones’ is authentic, it gives me the feeling that nothing has changed (and we will still struggle to get results) .
The way I see it, if the club wants to raise cash for their transfer budget exclusively by players sale alone from this window then it will take the team 4 to 5 years to correct the problems in the team that is if the good players in the team don’t loose patience and decides to leave and if the other teams don’t continue investing into their squad. Let’s have it at the back of our minds that good players like Kai, Werner, Ziyech, Pulisic etc will be hungry for trophies and if they can’t get those trophies- will look to leave; consequently, that means investing in good players will ultimately mean the club has to keep investing in good players to make the team better (which means money) or risk loosing the ones that have already been acquired.
I feel that if the club wants to get it right quickly, the club has got to take some losses on certain players and invest heavily on their replacements, i pray though that the club finds a way around it.

{Ed002's Note - You misunderstand about players sales - the club had raised in excess of £175M already. You would do best to ignore the finances.}

3.) 10 Aug 2020 11:00:04
If you feel to put us out of our misery and please give us an update on the GK Defence . i / we woud immensely appreciate it


{Ed002's Note - Why would I do that - you know what will happen.}

4.) 10 Aug 2020 11:53:56
I am only surprised you haven't been getting stick about Midfield and the Forward positions as well Ed002!



04 Aug 2020 17:19:47
Ed on european page when asked about van de Beek, you mentioned Chelsea were approached about the player, was there anymore to that, or would he be an option to havertz if that didn't go ahead or just nothing in it.

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - No, there is zero interest.}

1.) 04 Aug 2020 17:52:59
Cheers for response Ed, hope your well and nice and busy,



20 Jul 2020 16:33:16
I think all of us, myself included got ahead of ourselves with today's rumours, basically saying Chelsea and Bayer now have to come to an agreement Over the price, surely that's no different than two weeks ago?

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - I have no desire to start trying to give blow by blow updates - you will all do better to continue to use Twitter.}

1.) 20 Jul 2020 17:31:35
Fee isn't agreed but the talks are positive and may mean BL are willing to compromise on what they initially wanted for KH.

It’s up to Chelsea with Leverkusen. He’d like to join Chelsea but as Timo did with Liverpool, if another club comes with money, pay for you and want you. 🤷🏻‍♂️ it’s up to the club not just to the player. Kai is ready to leave Bundesliga, he wants to move - Fabrizo Ramano.

2.) 20 Jul 2020 17:36:26
I'm just quoting journalists that all guys. Take it with a pinch of salt if you want.

3.) 20 Jul 2020 18:06:02
I just mean ed from what you said a while back these new rumours haven’t really changed and it’s still chelsea need to agree a few with Bayer,

{Ed002's Note - Stuff is going on in the background with players leaving and players joining - but I am not going to try and give constant updates which everyone is getting from their chums on Twitter. It is not over until the omnipotent dog sings.}

4.) 20 Jul 2020 18:57:51
#wonderdogsparky if you know you know. Ed002 do you think Sparky will be singing with regards to this transfer 👀?!

Anyways, hope you don’t mind us so much, guess we are just really excited, the club is doing some good business and in general the path they are taking with Lamps and the younger player is one most of us have wanted so forgive us if we get too carried away. Thanks as always for your time.

{Ed002's Note - Sparky sings Holy Modal Rounders and Fugs songs when in the shower.}

5.) 21 Jul 2020 10:46:29
ED002, If chelsea do not manage to get KH, do we have a plan B.
can you tell us who is/ are the other option


{Ed002's Note - There is no point going down that road at the moment.}

6.) 21 Jul 2020 21:12:08
KH transfer Sounds optimistic Ed. Do you reckon he will do well should he arrive? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, I think he will do very well.}

7.) 21 Jul 2020 21:38:18
Brilliant Ed. I know we don't ask you much about players but your views are well appreciated as you are very knowledgeable.

Let's hope we get this transfer over the line.



08 Jul 2020 11:38:54
Apparently havertz has or will tell Bayer he wants to leave, his agent has been talking to Chelsea, but for all the and rumours they all finish with Chelsea to pay what Bayer want, so not much of an update but thought I'd share.

Matt martin

1.) 08 Jul 2020 14:10:17
Surprised how all this information comes out to the open when my understanding was that KH or his agent wouldn't be involved unless BL give Chelsea the permission to speak to their player.

Ed002, helps if you'd shed some light on the progress here with the KH deal?

{Ed002's Note - Your understanding is incorrect. The original post is also incorrect.}

2.) 08 Jul 2020 14:44:53
No Dareryk, from what I understand from my time on here clubs can talk to agents but not the player unless they get permission from the players club to talk to the player :) .

3.) 08 Jul 2020 19:42:51
Thanks ed and Eli for clarifying.
So hard to cut thru the bs and know the real story. Happy we have ed :)



03 Jul 2020 23:37:47
Bayern CEO Said they will not be bidding for havertz this year,
This doesn't mean its a done deal for us as Ed's said others are interested, Madrid being one, and situation remains the same. We will have to pay what BL want, maybe Michy can go other way to help deal, 2 birds one stone,

Matt martin

1.) 04 Jul 2020 08:57:51
I see the Leverkusen Chief has said Havertz can leave if “certain conditions are met”. Money, in terms of what they think he is worth will obviously be one of those conditions but I worry that another condition may be to allow Havertz to play out the Europa league campaign, which I hope isn’t a stumbling block for us.

2.) 04 Jul 2020 09:27:28
Does Bayer Leverkusen want Michy?
I think Rudi Voller has given the full green light to any club pushing for Havertz (from his comments as posted by Nizaar Kinsella’s article) - I am guessing with a condition that the interested club pays his valuation or he (Havertz) stays another year at Bayer Leverkusen. I think Havertz might join Chelsea but BL valuation needs to come down a bit (that’s if Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won’t decide against Pushing for him this summer) .

3.) 04 Jul 2020 09:38:20
Ed did say he will be leaving BL this summer.

Ed did always says that Bayern would be keen to agree a deal for next summer so I wouldn't discount them yet.

Has anything changed or still the same as per before ed?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed in terms of Havertz at this time.}

4.) 04 Jul 2020 15:42:33
Cup final v Bayern today, after today I imagine talks between him and club and us maybe start back up, doesn’t sound like Bayer will budge on asking price, could I ask ed if Bayer are interested in any players of ours or we willing to use anyone,

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know where you are getting all of these talks from Matt and the comment about the money. They have an interest in a player but he will not form part of any agreement.}

5.) 04 Jul 2020 16:45:32
Just thought that not having a fee agreed and still being interested we would still try to come to a agreement between clubs and thought that as BL still had an important game and talks with the player would of been on hold til seasons over,

{Ed002's Note - OK.}

6.) 04 Jul 2020 21:02:55
Please tell me it's Rudiger Ed002.

7.) 04 Jul 2020 22:34:55
Ed do you reckon we should be hopeful of an agreement? Is it likely in your opinion or will it be difficult. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It would not be unreasonable to expect that something can be completed.}

8.) 04 Jul 2020 23:39:30
Thanks Ed2, that sounds rather promising and gives us good hope. Thanks.

I would take Martinez from arsenal as goalkeeper,

Matt martin

1.) 10 Aug 2020 15:39:08
I know he's looked decent in the few games he's played for Arsenal. But over the course of a season is he really going to be that great?

That's the big question mark I have over him, any keeper can have a run of a few good games. I'd just much rather we go for a Pope or even Onana, they've proven themselves over full seasons for a few years now.

Oblak is obviously our dream signing, but I just can't realistically see that happening.

Ed's, any updates to the keeper situation?

2.) 10 Aug 2020 16:47:49
Over the course rod a season his an improvement on what we have, would cost a lot less, knows the league, short term fix admittedly.

3.) 10 Aug 2020 18:05:38
Matt Martin; Ian Wright echoed the same thing about Chelsea taking Martinez from Arsenal.



08 Aug 2020 23:33:21
Bar a few very good performances this season, playing v Bayern who have been in incredible form since flick took over does unfortunately show how far away we are, tonight showed how badly we need to add a gk and a Cb and lb. but overall, season was a success, I said start of season top four would be impressive and had doubts along the way and to be honest I'm confident we will address problems at the back, if it's clear for us to see them frank and Jody will see it. Just hope we can love on the players we need to get in the ones want, good season in total. Rest recover and next season top 4, quarter finals of champions league at least and league cup!

Matt martin



08 Aug 2020 21:47:08
Have we had a red card? Wondering why there's huge gaps in defence and players with nobody close them,?

Matt martin



08 Aug 2020 20:11:29
The sort of start you hope for in a big game,

Matt martin

1.) 08 Aug 2020 20:26:24
The gulf is class is a genuine worry, we just to give a good account of ourselves, being humiliated.

2.) 08 Aug 2020 20:56:42
The humiliation took place at the Bridge Matt.

Kovacic not playing well and that’s a shame given the good season he has had.

Kante looks understandably, off the pace.

I’m happy for James’s and CHO.

Tammy has been OK, shame about him being offside would have been a cracking goal.

Christensen has just about been OK as has Emerson.

Zouma, has also been ok and is showing if we are selling a CH it shouldn’t be him.

We are playing a quality side and I hope the lessons will be learned and that applies to Frank as well.



06 Aug 2020 16:10:07
Anyone seen anelka documentary . Such a good player. Think he was one we didn't appreciate until he left.

Matt martin

1.) 06 Aug 2020 17:07:58
I haven’t seen the documentary yet Matt but I agree he wasn’t always appreciated. Top player.

2.) 06 Aug 2020 18:23:17
One of my all time favorite players, and my mother's all time favorite by quite some margin! Criminally underrated in my opinion :)

3.) 06 Aug 2020 19:53:11
He was a player that once he was in you knew he would score, finishing was so good, always seemed to have a chip on his shoulder, had a good partnership with drogba,

4.) 07 Aug 2020 11:31:31
I think he may have missed a penalty once which hurt the way some people of a blue persuasion remember him (I forget, it’s like my mind has repressed the night! ) but yeah he’s a great, as people have said his partnership with Drogba was amazing, and I think that without meddling and the signing of a certain 50 million pound Spaniard we could have got a few more great years out of him. Was a very good player.

Kante struggled with injuries early on as Sarri played him all the time when he wasn’t fit, half for for a final. akimg injuries worse, and kante isn’t only world class in a two, his world class and would get into almost every team, the fact his world class in a two should be more reason to build around him, get him a partner who can cover ground and contribute rather than slow Jorginho and kovecic, non of whom Other anything With the ball and all play in that position,

Brilliant that it’s happening, but not surprised as Ed’s said it should happen, more surprised as I though foden was the David silva replacement.

It’s a sellers market, I remember last year arguing with a season ticket friend of mine at palace saying zaha isn’t worth £70, he said he is worth thst to palace if he keeps them up, Bayer haven’t got to sell so they will push a price up knowing if he stays or goes it’s fine with them, also clubs will know we’ve had a nan and not spent / champions league last year and this / sold hazard / morata so will push there luck . How much is it worth to us to add a goalscorer from midfield for the next 5-10 years?
