CAS appeal to be heard on November 20,

Got excited about Chelsea having interest in Werner as possible Giroud replacement. I'm sure we have other targets and other factors so hopefully nobody takes its as definite or anything but little bit of news on transfer front,

Matt martin

1.) 27 Oct 2019 23:00:50
Agree Matt he’d be a great option. Can push Tammy and can also play out wide.

2.) 28 Oct 2019 10:25:00
Given a choice Werner would be my choice as well and as mentioned for his ability to score goals both centrally and playing in a wider position as Anelka did for us.

3.) 28 Oct 2019 16:36:32
Does excite me tbf, lighting fast, hard worker and presses well, hits the ball so well and is a really good age,



25 Oct 2019 13:09:13
Just saw the sun going with us wanting Callum Wilson and Tini Werner in January, lol as ridiculous as that is, I like the link to Werner, can play as wide forward or 9, I'm sure I reward something about him having medical problems, something with his hearing?

Matt martin

1.) 25 Oct 2019 15:12:16
Think he has to wear earplugs in loud stadiums.

{Ed001's Note - that is correct mate. Loud noises cause him to suffer with vertigo. Could be an interesting excuse if the ref wants to card him for diving. I didn't dive honest, it just suddenly got loud and my legs gave out....}

2.) 25 Oct 2019 15:54:17
Haha won’t be a problem for old Trafford emirates and etihad,

3.) 25 Oct 2019 15:55:49
Knew I was right Ed thanks for confirmation just incase G8 started again 😂 he needs to learn to listen to me.

4.) 26 Oct 2019 00:21:07
Or Stamford bridge Matt can’t be biased 😂 that’s why I only follow away games.

5.) 26 Oct 2019 11:38:52
And Liverpool, YNWA before the game * 90 silence * YNWA at full time,



10 Sep 2019 18:40:35
Youcef atal linked, £35m, from what I read he was really good last season. And would be a top player, But his a RB, Azpi, James and now linked to atal. Not sure this one has legs to be honest imo, other positions need addressing,

Matt martin

1.) 10 Sep 2019 21:17:38
Makes complete sense that we are linked to Atal. Solid player, I would love Atal and James at RB, maybe it's about time Azpilicueta joined a slower league- his performances since last season has being depreciating.

2.) 11 Sep 2019 09:08:32
Football has evolved so much; to have a good defense and attack, I think wing defenders (that is 2s' and 3s') should be able to play as both fullbacks (defend) and wingbacks (attack) on the pitch. Make no mistake, I have complete respect for Azpi and his achievements for Chelsea, but I would rather sell him now that he still has some value and reinvest the cash from his sale in a player like Youcef Atal (that fits the description of a player being a fullback and wingback) ; and if Azpi doesn't want to leave, I think he should be moved to central defense (cos his pace has depreciated for a modern day rightback- who should defend very well and be able to go forward when need be) . A modern day wing defender should be like Emerson or Cancelo.
Besides Atal can play left back too.

3.) 11 Sep 2019 09:27:20
Cracking player. We need quality depth regardless of James and Emerson. Atal and Telles would be great.

4.) 11 Sep 2019 09:29:40
Bring in Atal to compete with Reece for RB and move Azpi to LB. Sell Alonso to make room. Atal can also play on the wings so he'd be a excellent buy for me.

5.) 11 Sep 2019 13:30:09
Emerson’s doing more than good enough at LB, Azpi has become easy to beat and complacent - imagine that’s be even worse out of position. Agree strength in depth just hope it doesn’t affect Reece James.

6.) 11 Sep 2019 14:33:45
I still think Azpi should be moved to CB alongside Rude.

7.) 11 Sep 2019 15:51:23
Azpi is on the decline anyway and Christensen is far better on the ball and in the air. Azpi should be 2nd choice RB or emergency rotation at CB at best. Tbh id even prefer to see Tomori start RB against Wolves.



23 Jul 2019 18:41:57
Callum has apparently signed a 5 year deal. Great news, one for the future and we get to see him grow at Chelsea,

Matt martin

1.) 23 Jul 2019 20:09:46
Matt Law has confirmed that he has agreed a new deal with Chelsea worth over £100,000/ week. Good news.

2.) 23 Jul 2019 23:09:32
Sky saying £180k/ week which is eye watering for an 18 year old imo but then again not my money so the club know better. I just think in a year or two he’ll want another contract or the club will want to extend it which will bump it even higher.

3.) 24 Jul 2019 03:10:11
It’s 100k and no more! Stop spreading false rumours of 180k. I’ve seen enough unnecessary CHO hate on Twitter that’s come from lies people spread. Half of Twitter was telling him to leave last week because they thought he was holding the club to ransom. No one knows the true story.

4.) 24 Jul 2019 10:18:26
Frankie you say it’s 100k and I’m spreading False stories but also say no one knows the true story 😂😂😂.

5.) 24 Jul 2019 13:50:30
Because about 5 different people like Matt Law and Simon Phillips (who both know a lot more than) are reporting it 🤣 so get with it and don’t make up pure rubbish! Who told you 180k a week? The little voice in you’re head? 😂.

6.) 24 Jul 2019 14:20:49
Frankie it is Sky who mentioned the figure of £180k per week.

I personally don’t care what the number is. For me it is just a statement of intent.

7.) 24 Jul 2019 15:06:24
Ah I wouldn’t listen to sky sports tomb much rather listen to carefree youth on twitter who’s very reliable. Sky have gone really downhill. Simon Phillips and Matt law are also very good when it comes to Chelsea news.

8.) 24 Jul 2019 15:43:27
My point is Frankie, it’s NOT the little voice in someone’s head. It’s Sky making out, as usual, it’s got the inside track.

9.) 24 Jul 2019 17:01:26
I even wrote sky in my comment 🙄😂😂😂.

10.) 24 Jul 2019 17:47:04
Sometimes people are a rush to make comments. I’ve done it myself plenty of times.

Onwards and upwards MY MIGHTY BLUES.

Pleased for the win, we were brilliant at times, not sure why we were so relaxed at the back. and the penalty was a disgrace! Exaggerated dive once he saw kepa there, VAR is a joke and not only are decisions not 100% but it's not used correctly, clear and obvious decisions it's for yet refs over ruled at every chance, brilliant save by kepa . great win, so angry about that diving when Callum was booked last week, jorginho out of palace game so hopefully kante back in, up the chelsea, note : kovecic oozed class and would be my MOTM.

Matt martin

1.) 02 Nov 2019 19:32:25
Excellent post Matt.

CHO should not have come on given that defensively he is not the best. Lampard needs to be careful with CHO because at the moment CHO seems to be low in confidence.

2.) 02 Nov 2019 19:33:21
I agree with your MOM choice Matt. I also think Tammy, Jorginho, Willian and Pusilic were excellent. Mount showed lots of energy.

IMO Dave had an average/ poor game.

What a save from Kepa.

3.) 02 Nov 2019 21:58:00
I feel the issue at the moment with Hudson Odoi is that he's still scared of contact cos he's just coming back from a serious injury, I feel he's being careful not to push too much for fear of getting hurt or injured again; it happens to many players when they are just returning from injury. It's a stage and it will pass.
A big round of applause for my guys Jorginho and Kovacic- top top performance.



02 Nov 2019 18:16:30
Azpi giving the ball away on a few occasions. Trying to play to feet but over 30 yards and no pace, Tammy scores that second and games completely different, need to flow aware that it's 1-0, and not keep creeping to far up pitch and allow ourselves to be caught, that jorginho pass was sublime and took everyone except Tammy by surprise, William final pass needs to improve, his ball retention is good but need that end result.

Matt martin

1.) 02 Nov 2019 18:24:21
I’ve noticed that myself. Every time he gets to the final third he gets a nosebleed as well. Surely can’t be long before James is first choice.

2.) 02 Nov 2019 19:24:08
We’ve made real hard work of that some really bad decision making especially when we conceded great to get the 3 points but should’ve had a clean sheet and more goals got to cut that out silly mistakes.



02 Nov 2019 17:25:04
arsenal drew. United lost, must win, huge game, jorginho goal? Tammy back on score sheet?

Matt martin



30 Oct 2019 20:37:34
Only half hour and Michy looks like his only decent of the bench, Alonso passing the ball the players not in space but not sure that should of been a penalty. Front 3 quiet so far, still early,

Matt martin

1.) 30 Oct 2019 20:53:34
Clear penalty stupid tackle no need to do it been doing ok recently but he’s not at the races tonight hopefully come out better in the second half.

2.) 30 Oct 2019 21:01:58
I was thinking the same about Michy, however to be fair to him the whole performance has been a struggle from the whole team. We seem to struggle in breaking down UUtd. Hopefully, we can unlock the door in the 2nd half.

3.) 31 Oct 2019 18:39:15
I thought it was a very soft penalty and similar to the one the same player got against Norwich.

Just an OK performance by us but onwards and upwards.



29 Oct 2019 17:38:57
Hazard talking about wanting to leave Chelsea for Madrid and had meeting with Perez and Perez told him he is wanted, hazard then said last year at chelsea was easier knowing he was going to Madrid, I though I'd miss him and he was very special but he talks too much, and isn't that a bit of tapping up from Perez .

Matt martin

1.) 29 Oct 2019 18:25:23
Matt, I’m not a fan of old players making comments about their previous clubs and I have to admit that I never forgave John Hollins when he left our club as a player.

IMO we just have to move on and try and remember the good times that these players give us. Or, it ends up like a bad divorce, full of acrimony and negativity.

We are Chelsea, we are bigger and better than that. At least that’s what I tell the grandkids.

2.) 29 Oct 2019 18:55:01
The contact was made after the WC and no one can have any complaints how he performed last season.
That showed his respect for the club and the fans despite his disappointment at not joining Madrid earlier.
Nothing he might say now will change the joy he gave me through his incredible talent and the trophies he helped us win.

3.) 29 Oct 2019 21:29:02
Madrid always nudge their players to make similar comments. As others have said, he performed admirably last season regardless of who he wanted to be playing for. He left the club in a good position in an amicable manner and should be appreciated accordingly. That said, the 100m+ that marina procured for him is already looking to be incredible business.

4.) 29 Oct 2019 23:24:50
Agreed Turvey. He was tremendous last season and honestly I thought he was the most enjoyable player I’ve seen play in a long time, at times was effortless. However I’m very happy with how this season is going so I don’t particularly miss him but definitely wish him well in Madrid.

5.) 30 Oct 2019 13:28:36
Anyone remember Gordon Durie demanding to leave Chels because he wanted to move nearer his home in Scotland - and then signing for Spurs?!

6.) 30 Oct 2019 16:53:28
I was once told that us signing Robert Fleck was part of the package that allowed Jukebox to go to Spurs.

I was told Spurs and us both wanted Fleck so a deal over dinner was arranged.

Cheers ed. Atal and Werner, I’d be more than happy.

Zaha would cost ridiculous amount of money and his goals / assists isn’t that of a £80m player or whatever it would take to get him, names I’ve seen are same as before
Atal ake ( Tomori zouma rudiger and probably Christensen all better than him ) sancho and demebele and Ed’s have informed of Werner interest, if Giroud goes we need a striker imo.

Well hopefully Chelsea can get a deal done, thought Werner would of been on Klopps rader, wide forward, fast and presses, seems a match for Liverpool.

The problem with players worth this and that. although I do agree, if we go out with a cap on what we want to spend, we end up with a drinkwater or Bakyoko or Zappacosta. We don’t need squad fillers, the kids have proved there more than that. But some world class players to take us to that next level, ie like Liverpool with vvd then Allison. from almost men to winners ( IMO )

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - You really ahve no grasp about the transfer strategy and what happened Matt. It is embarrassing - KA cost more than Allison}

Hmmm, it’s tricky because jorginho doesn’t deserve to be dropped, but like the Azpilicueta / James situation James playing v zaha was best tactically. And kante kovecic plus a no10 who will press like mad will be important, Mount hasn’t been great last few weeks and but has an engine on him, I’d go for the same line up v palace,
