Zaha would be so good. could play that wide man and back up striker and runs in behind, stretches teams and is direct. Signed s deal so would be mega money,

Matt martin

1.) 16 Sep 2018 03:16:09
Zaha or Bailey to replace Willian and were sorted for RW.

2.) 16 Sep 2018 10:25:11

3.) 16 Sep 2018 10:36:31
Dybala would be special and that’s the sort of name that hazard wants around him I reckon.

4.) 16 Sep 2018 11:18:47
Lads, I’ve only just got over the stress and tension of the last transfer window. I can’t handle the the January window just yet!

I’m happy to rejoice in our wonderful start to the season and seeing Hazard playing with such freedom is just our joy!

Can I also say how impressed I always am with the global football knowledge of my fellow Chelsea fans and football fans in general.!

5.) 16 Sep 2018 17:15:54
Dybala is class but he’s not rapid for a winger.



07 Aug 2018 10:39:01
Kepa / Oblak
These are strong rumours for last few days. Csnt see too much truth in some but I can guarantee that we won't be able to get more than 2 If we're lucky in next few days unless we're really close to someone now, plus getting dead wood out and spending near on £200m. never going to happen.

Matt martin

1.) 07 Aug 2018 11:38:59
I'll be happy if we get Kepa, Kovacic and Zaha.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 11:48:00
Me too TruBlu.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 11:55:03
Kovacic on loan with option to buy
is that soon to be finalised?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know. I know Real Madrid are trying to sell him. I know he was offered around, but only team I knew of with an interest was Inter.}



03 Aug 2018 23:18:58
Sarri saying we need to fill one more position maybe. I'd say winger? But we were in for Rugani quite publicly so who knows.

Matt martin

1.) 04 Aug 2018 03:17:11
I think if just 1 was to come in for me I would want a lb tbh right now I think Kennedy would have been a good option.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 05:12:26
Might be more than one.

3.) 04 Aug 2018 08:53:35
He was specific, "a midfielder with different characteristics" to what we have. I guess he wants a more mobile goal scoring attacking midfielder.

4.) 04 Aug 2018 08:53:37
It has to be a GK surely, unless we intend letting Courtois run down his contract.

5.) 04 Aug 2018 08:56:37
I expect the hold up on signing players right now is because we haven't sold the players who don't have a future with the club. For example, we can't sign anymore CMs whilst Drinkwater remains and in CB we're pretty stocked up too whilst Zouma and Cahill are still with us. I guess a RW is dependant on whether or not Willian leaves us.

6.) 04 Aug 2018 09:39:54
I think that is spot on Saim. If we can’t shift players we can’t keep adding to wage bill, so the wait goes on.

7.) 04 Aug 2018 09:40:13
You are probably right Saim.

8.) 04 Aug 2018 09:49:55
I think Chelsea will definitely bring in the midfielder like Sarri said but others will depend on outgoings like you said Saim; maybe a goal keeper might come in if Courtois leaves, another deal that could happen is Martial for Willian.

9.) 04 Aug 2018 09:59:01
Wouldn’t believe a word Sarri says about transfers. According to Simon Phillips, we still want Kasper, Butland or Pickford. Also want Vecini from Inter (but with vidal going to Barca, can’t see that happening) .

We’ve still players to move on also. Think we’ll know more after CS.

10.) 04 Aug 2018 10:55:02
CFCAdam, so you know Simon Phillips? He's cream de la cream; I mean I know he can be trusted.

11.) 04 Aug 2018 13:45:30
He’s one of the better so called reporters mate. He only types what he hears or reads etc.

12.) 04 Aug 2018 14:42:05
I understand why Courtois wants to go to Madrid to be with his family, but his agent pleading with Chelsea to let him go completely misses the point we need a quality replacement. There doesn't seem to be any great goalkeepers available. Perhaps a swap Navos for Courtois?
As a fan I was aware of this situation some time ago so difficult to understand why the club hasn't acted sooner. We could have had Pickford from Sunderland.

13.) 04 Aug 2018 22:05:48
Because Courtais was at some stage keen on signing a new deal as Madrid wanted De gea. He’s lead Chelsea on, thinking they have a chance of renewing his contract. But really we didn’t have a chance and now the player wins in every situation. Leaves now, get his wish and a pay rise. Leaves in 12 months and can get a better signing on fee as it will be a free transfer. Win/ win is his eyes.

I won’t miss him truth be told. Never really taken to him.

Sooner we get rid, the better.



28 Jul 2018 21:28:38
Only pre season and only second game, few signs of great play but final result. Sarri must know he needs that spark from wings. Callum Hudson Odoi looking ready for his spot, can / will cause havoc in Europa league. Alonso seems bit lost in this style.

Bakyoko, drinkwater, Piazon, kalas will be be moving on. Piazon to Fulham I reckon. Drinkwater to West Ham, Bakyoko to Sevilla when nzonzi goes and kalas to boro again. Some of our football is so refreshing and once hazard back in and few attaching additions we will be putting teams away early. jorginho could come in and be captain, he's so vocal and such a player. Sarri ball will take some time though.

Matt martin

1.) 28 Jul 2018 23:15:57
Morata showing good signs but Sarri says, 'we want to keep our best players but not at all costs'. Does this raise a question mark about Morata's future? Time will tell. I see no reason why a good player wouldn't want to play under a manager like Sarri. I want Morata to stay cos he will develop massively under Sarri.
I see why Sarri wants Rugani and Vecino- indeed Bakayoko and Drinkwater should be moved on.
Good signs all over really. Jorginho is too good- natural leader.

2.) 28 Jul 2018 23:29:51
I thought Morata was quite poor apart from first 20
Mins. It showed he isn’t suitable to this type of football when Barkley broke from midfield and has the inter defence ahead of him. Morata was just standing there as he surged past him. If that was me and remember he had the summer off, I’d be busting a gut to get into
Position. Pre season or not. But he didn’t. He just stood there. Disappointing and wouldn’t care if he left.

3.) 28 Jul 2018 23:52:18
SARRI WORDS ABOUT MORATA, "I'm still waiting for the best #Morata, In the first match Morata did not play very well, in Australia. But tonight, especially in the first 30 minutes, he improved a lot . I am satisfied and I am very confident in him for the future."

4.) 29 Jul 2018 00:59:19
It really looked as if Morata didn’t have the legs to make runs after the first 25 minutes or so. Pedro I thought looked lively. I do like what I’ve seen so far, get our other World Cup players back and in training in this system and I think we’ll be set up well. Would like another wide player and midfielder also.

5.) 29 Jul 2018 02:57:06
CFCAdam and Matt be patient with Morata, this is the first time Morata has got to press a defense line that much since I've being watching him as a footballer. It's not easy to do what he did today considering the fact that he doesn't play like that before now, he will grow into that role and build more stamina as he plays more. He can only improve cos he's got good technical ability and speed. Morata will adapt and I think he will peak again.

6.) 29 Jul 2018 14:15:30
Have Patience? Mate. This is his second season, he spent the majority of last season on his arse. He should have plenty of energy levels, yet couldn’t care that Barkley had broken ahead of him and left him with no options. He had a full summers rest too.

7.) 29 Jul 2018 17:16:12
CFCAdam, I see your point and you are right but let's believe Morata will improve and stay away from injury (as do Barkley) . What I won't stand for is to replace Morata with Higuain or a striker that isn't young. The only striker that I will give Morata for at the moment is Icardi or Mbappe. I want us to have a young squad.

8.) 29 Jul 2018 21:28:37
Yep I don't want Higuain either! But just don't think Morata, Tammy or Bats is the answer neither!



25 Jul 2018 15:40:26
Lots of Savic rumours but if United were scared of because of the fee then not sure we are going to be hanging around, Ed's any truth in this one.,

Matt martin

{Ed001's Note - last I heard the fee was a problem for everyone who showed interest.}

Make him captain and add a few world class players to that team to make him happy and compete with the cities and Madrid's etc because hazard In this form is just too much. Adding goals and being bit more greedy is what we want. 2nd start this season, 5 goals and few assists. lovely stuff, get that contract sorted Chelsea.

Matt martin

1.) 15 Sep 2018 16:59:44
One can dream.

2.) 15 Sep 2018 17:33:13
We’ve been saying for years add class players around him but we never seem to. We’ve strengthened midfield massively this summer with Kovacic and Jorginho. ST and RW are still massive issues. Giroud was fantastic today but we need a Kane who can do it all. Pedro played well also he wasn’t scared to have a shot he would be a great impact sub. Bailey should come into replace Willian or maybe Hudson-Odoi can show us what he’s capable of in the Europa.

3.) 15 Sep 2018 18:32:20
I wonder what sort of striker Sarri would like then. I think harry Kane would be the type. can hold it up and score and has the movement etc etc but he won’t be available so who is there. is Icardi that type? I like him but I just don’t know, Giroud seems to be the man at moment as his link up play is superb.

4.) 16 Sep 2018 00:56:52
Eden Hazard finally getting some recognition. He’s a better player than Neymar, maybe the 1’s on here will start to realise.

5.) 16 Sep 2018 03:17:55
Hazard has never had as many class players around him as Neymar or played under attacking coaches. Neymar has been playing with Mbappe and Cavani while Hazard has had Morata and Willian.



15 Sep 2018 14:14:13
Morata dropped for Giroud which most can agree is right cal but it'll just knock his confidence even more. need a fighter as no1,

Matt martin

1.) 16 Sep 2018 12:16:11
Matt, Kane is a top player but I’m not sure he is the type of centre forward that Sarri likes but I’m also not sure Morata is either.
Giroud looks like a Sarri type of player and that’s why I’ve already stated Tammy could have got some games for us this year.
I can't see Michy ever working under Sarri.



15 Sep 2018 10:32:55
Sarri says he is trying to stress the importance of this match and that CARDIFF won't be easy and not to be relaxed, which is problem we had last year losing or dropping points to teams we should of been winning comfortably.

Matt martin



10 Sep 2018 21:35:50
This international week has been terrible, wanting to see us as each week getting better, wanted to say I'm also excited about Europa league to see those boys. Willy Emerson Ampadu Christensen Zappa
Loftus-Cheek Cesc Barkley CHO Giroud willian, think it's a team that could take chances and show Sarri he can rely on them. Cesc will be heartbeat if the team like Jorginho is for us, Cahill could be used for better more experienced spine and also bulka has been impressive,

Matt martin



02 Sep 2018 11:23:38
Michy would do well or at least a chance under Sarri instead wasted at Valencia, terrible loan move so far.

Matt martin

1.) 02 Sep 2018 11:30:11
Matt on what do you base your reasoning?

2.) 02 Sep 2018 15:26:52
with sarri coming in I would have thought michy would have been banker to start look at goals got at Dortmund when playing and attacking style.

3.) 02 Sep 2018 15:38:10
Michy general play isn’t the greatest but he comes alive in the box. we now we have a lot more possession in final 3rd, and so far at Valencia he isn’t starting and is at best 3rd choice.

4.) 02 Sep 2018 16:19:15
I agree with you, Matt - he certainly couldn't be any worse than Morata.

5.) 02 Sep 2018 17:46:29
Sorry lads I just don’t see Michy doing any better under Sarri than Morata.

I hope Michy has a very successful loan season but at the moment I just don’t see how his style of play would work and as I’ve already posted, I think Tammy may well have been a better alternative.

It’s all about opinions!

Yeah that’s the big question loko, Savic got a lot of goals from midfield or lazio, fekir more winger type gets goals, but I’m not a scout so can’t think of many that’d be available, but looking at city they had goals from KDB silva sane sterling. same for Liverpool with mane salah coutinho When he was there and Mahrez at Leicester gets goals, just other outlets than just striker,

Jorginho is what’s known as a deep lying playmaker. Sets the tempo and starts moves, same as pjanic, kante will be the ball winner and isn’t as bad on the ball as some believe, but we need that 3rd to get goals or assists. I bet Cesc plays there if we don’t sign anyone,

Go on a website called TWICKETS, all tickets are face value or less so you won’t get over charged. It’s brilliant site, and can pay using pay pal, I got 4 tickets if there recently no problems at all.

He will get his chance in Europa league but I’ve said it before his not good enough. All those matches for place and you hear nothing. then he’d have a great game and be praised and spoke about his chance at Chelsea. then go another 4/ 5 games ( if not injured ) as a bystander, i don’t know if his a CM, or CAM doesn’t do either well enough,

Definite legend, played with an injury and was superb in CL final, 2 Prem titles and Europa league and FA and league cups. Scored some vital vital goals. same class as is novice to me. Both had there faults towards end of there Chelsea tenure but legends who gave it all.
