Hi all, I'd just like to get your opinions on our possible January transfers. It look like we'll push to Callum Wilson and possibly for Pulisic (to arrive in the summer? )

What do you all think of this? I think Wilson's pace and genuine strength will be incredibly effective in our system. Pulisic would be interesting. I'm from the states, and while he is far and away our best player, I'm not sure that he will do well with Chelsea.

What do you think, and what other rumors have you heard about?


1.) 18 Dec 2018 16:10:47
Calum Wilson is the perfect January transfer. Fast strong and knows were the goal is, and come summer if we got a big name he would be brilliant back up, 24 and home grown. knows the league, Abraham 3rd choice next year?

2.) 18 Dec 2018 16:20:49
I believe that he is 26, but I still think he is plenty young enough! Do you have an idea of what "big name" you think would come in during the summer? I've been hoping for Icardi for the last few years, but I'm not sure that will ever happen!

3.) 18 Dec 2018 17:53:27
I think we have needs at LB, RW and CF.

Like many others on here i think that Ben Chilwell would be the ideal signing at LB, but I don't thing Leicester will sell him for anything other than a ridiculous price. To be fair, with his new deal, the club seem pretty content with Alonso so we probably won't see much movement here till the summer. I've mentioned him before, and I will mention him again, but Jay Da Silva is having a fantastic season.

Pusilic seems like a fair shout for the RW spot, I'd also like to see a move for Thorgan Hazard who is having a very good season in Germany.

I agree that Wilson would be the ideal signing for the CF position. Could even have the type of season that would eliminate the need for a "big name" signing.

4.) 18 Dec 2018 19:00:05
I’m not sure to be ho eat, I personally like icardi but he isn’t a Sarri type player of Sarri likes the target man who gets in the score sheet. Oscar did won’t be in the game for 75 min but 2 chances could bogey two goals, morata in theory is his type to link play and technically good but mentally he is so weak you have to feel for him. Mitrovic would be another one similar to Wilson for me. Good option but will only upgrade in summer, I honestly don’t know what strikers are about who are top class, the Cavani type except Harry Kane?

5.) 18 Dec 2018 19:22:34
I tend to disagree with your Icardi statement, I think he does well holding the ball up. IMO he's able to be more than a target man, his movement is very good, he's strong and has pace. I think Icardi would not only bring goals, but he would bring a similar scrappy attitude like Costa's, which I think we've been missing.

Remember that Sarri used Mertens and Hazard, who are smaller players, as a #9. But I do remember that he wanted a reunion with Higuain, so maybe he does prefer a big man. Only time will tell!

6.) 18 Dec 2018 19:53:19
J don’t know which Jay Da Silva you’ve been watching but he’s only played less than half their games. He can’t even get in the side ahead of Lloyd Kelly. We need to cut his loan short and send him somewhere else. I like Wilson but the price is a joke why not Vardy? A short term option who’s homegrown until we can find a world class striker. Vardy is a leader too he’s horrible but he’s what we need I’d try for him and Chilwell in a double deal very unlikely but it’s what I’d like to see.

7.) 20 Dec 2018 01:36:04
vardy a good shout fast agressive an finish good player.

8.) 20 Dec 2018 17:09:38
Vardy is 31!



09 Nov 2018 18:01:15
Seeing that we are interested in Denis Suarez from Barca. Does anyone know if this is true or not? Can’t see us having space for another midfielder honestly.


1.) 11 Nov 2018 05:23:27
I read somewhere that Sarri likes him and went for him on more than two occasions when he was at Napoli.



07 Jan 2018 18:31:34
Saw a rumor today about possibly bringing back Thorgan Hazard over the summer. I don't watch much of the German league, has anyone paid attention to his development? Would he be an upgrade to Pedro or Willian?


1.) 07 Jan 2018 20:25:52
This is me just speculating but it might be something that Eden has "demanded" before he signs a new contract

Again, that's me speculating.



27 Dec 2017 18:31:53
Hi eds, hope you're enjoying the holidays. Is there any hint on which teams are most interested in Hazard? Madrid is the obvious, but are there other teams monitoring him? Cheers!


{Ed002's Note - Can't help, sorry.}

1.) 27 Dec 2017 19:44:26
Ed002 any chance you could provide us with some transfer updates. But for a few trolls our page seems to have gone so dull without transfer input. Fair play to the other posters who kept things moving here of late. Tbh the trolls probably ain't even chelsea fans and are probably loving the fact that we get nothing here anymore. Any chance ed2?

{Ed002's Note - Zero chance. Even on Christmas Day I was getting foul abuse.}

2.) 27 Dec 2017 20:09:31
I know u won't say who they are ed02, but are the brain dead morons regular posters on this site, or other lowlife who don't usually post banter about Chelsea, but just take pleasure in writing cowardly abuse at u,

3.) 27 Dec 2017 20:10:50
Hopefully you can block The dickheads that ruin it for The rest of us, but understandable that you don't want to help under these circumstances.

4.) 27 Dec 2017 20:36:18
No worries Ed. Appreciate the quick reply. It would be good if you could somehow get these idiots banned. Because of them dickheads we are not able to maximise our use of the site which is obviously fantastic.

5.) 27 Dec 2017 23:41:05
I think banning has been suggested and maybe even tried before but it’s always going to be ineffective when they can create a new account in about a minute. It baffles me as to why anyone would abuse the Ed’s when they spend time giving us information we couldn’t get elsewhere for free.

6.) 28 Dec 2017 00:34:40
Ed002, let me preface this by saying that the abuse you're on the receiving end of is unneeded, and quite frankly, cowardly. but I don't feel that punishing everyone just because of a select few is the way to go about things. Because of some people's actions, us real supporters who enjoy reading your input are void of any information. Tarring everyone with the same brush is exactly what these abusers want, and they'll continue to abuse, and as such, us genuine supporters are feeling the effects of it. Introducing bans would be quite helpful, and easier for you.

7.) 28 Dec 2017 08:55:26
That's a real shame.



28 Aug 2017 17:45:37
Apparently we have agreed $45 million for Costa to athletico, and loaning him to Everton until January.


1.) 29 Aug 2017 08:34:33
£30 mil. a joke in current market; when willing (! ) he is one of the top five strikers in world and we are weaker without his physical presence up front.

Always felt sorry for Dave, seems like he never got a fair shot in the spainish national team.


1.) 18 May 2019 16:30:13
Not as good as Carvajal in terms of an all round better RB in fairness, great defensively but not going forward.



13 May 2019 16:30:30
Does anyone know if Pulisic will be at the friendly this week?


{Ed002's Note - He won't be.}

1.) 13 May 2019 16:49:50
The German league hasn't finished yet.

2.) 13 May 2019 17:33:28
Thanks for letting me know, I forgot that the German league is still on going!

3.) 13 May 2019 18:52:39
Ed I was wondering when it's normal for players to return from their loans? I've seen that for instance Reece James has returned and is training with the team already. I thought the players were loaned until June 30th and would train with that respective team until? Or will they simply return, when the club they've been loaned to has played their last competitive match? :)

{Ed001's Note - the usual is after the last competitive match unless they are sent back early.}

4.) 13 May 2019 21:20:15
Okay thanks a lot for your reply! Have a nice evening! :)

{Ed001's Note - welcome take care mate, it is way past evening here now!}

5.) 14 May 2019 16:39:47
Is he going to be with us pre season does anyone know?



06 May 2019 00:09:17
Wonderful 2nd half. I'm happy that we started the contract renewal process for RLC, he was one of our best players tonight and for the second half of the season.

Feel for N'golo, hopefully he'll be fit for the final if we get there. Jorginho has put in a string of good performances. let's finish strong the next few weeks and give Eden a proper send off.


1.) 06 May 2019 09:45:36
Not sure from my perspective that Jorginho has more than quite a short string of good performances together, but he has had a few this season and was significantly better than usual against Frankfurt, indeed a stand out player that night, and deserves a shout out for that. In many previous games his backwards and sideways passes slowed us down at times, his covering defence a bit suspect, and he misdirected many ambitious/ penetrative passes. But he was a formidable presence around the park in Frankfurt, and perhaps this is the player he can be for us more often. I did not see yesterday's game, but perhaps he carried that Frankfurt performance into it. We all know how important confidence is to a player, and if Jorginho's is increasing and performances with it that can only be very good news indeed for us.

2.) 06 May 2019 10:08:00
Having slated him for a lot of the season (deservedly so), I am pleased to say that Jorginho was excellent in Frankfurt and played well again yesterday - Long may it continue.

3.) 06 May 2019 15:43:20
I absolutely like Mourinho's words of praise for Jorginho. I think Jorginho has done very well for a player that's having his debut season in a difficult league like the EPL; didn't have a back up for almost the entire season (played almost all EPL games this season and still racked up some record breaking stats) . Thumbs up to Jorginho, I think he has done very well.

4.) 06 May 2019 23:25:54
If you watch him off the ball he actually runs the team.



02 May 2019 04:31:20
Excited to see Jovic go against us. Hopefully Sarri gets a really good look at him 😉.


1.) 02 May 2019 08:58:33
I hope he doesn't get a sniff and looks absolutely awful against us.



10 Apr 2019 17:32:02
Best of luck to the lawyers representing Chelsea in the transfer appeal, let's hope we can get the ban lifted until the end of the investigation.


1.) 10 Apr 2019 20:43:59
I'm not so sure - I have a feeling that we will be better off in the long run by having the ban upheld and having to bring our young loanees into the squad.

2.) 10 Apr 2019 21:34:34
Completely agree mdw could well be a blessing in disguise.

3.) 10 Apr 2019 23:01:29
Exactly what I said when the ban was first revealed.

4.) 11 Apr 2019 00:43:15
Completely agree. Spurs didn’t sign a player for two years and they’ve been consistently third and making UCL with there own.

If they can, why can’t we. We literally have two full squads out on loan.

5.) 11 Apr 2019 15:52:50
I'm more concerned on FIFA treating us like they did their Spanish darlings. I agree that the eventual ban can be a blessing in disguise!

6.) 11 Apr 2019 23:41:38
amen to that mdw.

Looks like he'll be back before the end of the season! Not as serious as was first thought.
