Taken from the european pages.

Kai Havertz (AM) Bayern Munich will move for KH if the option on Philippe Coutinho not taken up - which it won't be. However, Bayern value the player at €50M less than the original €130M asking price - which has dropped to a still significant €100M minimum with no guarantee that Bayer Leverkusen will sell at all. In terms of interest from elsewhere, Barcelona were keen assuming Coutinho leaves, but have other prioritiues and financial issues. Manchester City viewed him as a David Silva replacement but have moved on. KH was first choice for Juventus but interest has moved on to others - and they are looking to horse trade. Interest of Milan will not go anywhere. Dortmund and PSG have both certainly spoken with his agent but neither seem keen enough at the asking price and will press ahead with other preferences. Manchester United opting for Bruno Fernandes will likely take them out of the picture and they need to resolve the issue with Pogba and replacing him and getting Sanchez off the books - and it won't be Havertz or Sancho - so they could end up having to make several very high end purchases - but they remain keen and need to prioritorise. Even with Chelsea opting for Ziyech, they have spoken with Bayer Leverkusen and will return with an interesting proposal after losing out on another target. Real Madrid have other priorities and have signed an alternative already - it is unlikely their funds will stretch to KH this summer so they propose a deal like Nobby Keita where the transfer is agreed for next summer at a fixed fee with a deposit paid now and the player staying another year in Germany - but the deposit might well be in the form of a player or two and that may not satisfy Bayer Leverkusen. Whether Liverpool wish to throw their hat in to the ring is another matter but they are not going to be able to fund a move this summer without a major sale. There may be a real push for him to spend one more year at BL regardless of all of the strong interest, as they have already signed a replacement to the club, but he is still inexperienced and learning. That would suit Bayern Munich - but they expect to be pressed in to making the signing this summer which does not ideally suit them with Sane still being thrashed out.

Thanks Ed02.

cheers for the copy&paste - assume the one we've missed out on is Sancho?

{Ed002's Note - No. RTP.}

2.) 11 Jun 2020 14:54:07
Reinier Jesus.



16 Mar 2019 09:34:57
Is Ed02's return to the Chelsea page when we enter a transfer ban the ultimate act of irony? It's too well timed not to be.

If so, I have nothing but respect.


{Ed002's Note - It is no problem for me not to bother if it is all about to start again.}

1.) 16 Mar 2019 12:19:21
Don’t think he meant any harm Ed002! Nath has usually been a respectable poster!

2.) 16 Mar 2019 13:35:23
Sorry Ed, it was a well intentioned joke nothing more.



23 Jul 2018 12:20:09
Can any of the eds firm up the Martial to Chelsea gossip?

It sounds like lazy journalism but I like the idea at least.


{Ed001's Note - he has been offered around, I don't know of any interest in him at the price being asked.}

1.) 23 Jul 2018 16:32:45
strange that united apparently blocking a move to Chelsea.

2.) 23 Jul 2018 16:33:03
especially the fact we sold them to mata an matic.

3.) 23 Jul 2018 20:10:52
Thanks ed.

I would be concerned by his attitude anyway.



06 Feb 2018 08:58:18
This site is becoming too poisonous, the team weren't good last night, but the sending off was harsh and everything else was as a result.

Conte needs to be more of a positive influence, and he'll probably go at the end of the season but that's not a reason to slag off all the players, many of whom have been stand up for seasons.


{Ed002's Note - It is the ignorance of the modern day fan Nath. The majority who do nothing but abuse players, the coach and the board know nothing whatsoever about the club or what is going on. It is absolutely laughable and getting more and more embarrassing. They are happy to drag the site down and will go elsewhere after they have been removed from here.}

1.) 06 Feb 2018 09:10:56
Ed02 I agree, albeit your return in the summer might change the emphasis of this site? It used to be excellent. Any chance?

{Ed002's Note - It is not worth it Nath. My explaining what has been going on and what is still going on regarding transfers will simply result in abuse.}

2.) 06 Feb 2018 09:17:39
Okay ed, for what it's worth there's still plenty on the other rumours sites to enjoy.

{Ed002's Note - Good.}

3.) 06 Feb 2018 09:31:01
Nath, I agree that no supporter should be slagging off players (or Ed002) unless that player is obviously not trying. But I don't think the sending off dramatically changed the game last night - we were being overrun by Watford anyway and didn't look as if we had any idea as how to counter them. Babayoko needs to be sidelined for his own sake - his confidence is so obviously shattered that to play him is just extending his nightmare - Bakayoko's evening consisted of 7 touches, 7 times lost possession, and 2 bookings (both harsh by the way but that's Mike Dean for you) .

4.) 06 Feb 2018 09:34:35
Ed002 what is going on at our club

I know you don't want to divulge in transfers but why are we so clueless as to what's going on
Why not tell us is there something major going on or not
I don't want to be rude but you have attacked us on here a couple of times now in the last week
Why not give us mere mortals some insight to what's going on and shut us all up
The site works both ways and could make us more insightful and less negative with snippets of info t.

{Ed002's Note - I have zero interest in explaining what is going on with the club or any other transfer information. The Chelsea page has been completely consumed by the vegetables now, as was evidenced from the trash filling the pages last night - and most of it was actually deleted rather than posted.}

5.) 06 Feb 2018 09:50:20
Fair dos.

6.) 06 Feb 2018 11:39:32
I think as fans we all tend to overreact when results are poor, however I cannot understand why so many fans want Conte out, remember how both Mourinho and Guardiola did last season in the league and how well they are both doing now. That comes from sticking with your managers when things are hard. Football works in cycles and you have to have faith that things will get better. They usually do.

7.) 06 Feb 2018 13:09:56
With all due respect Ed002 and I stand corrected; I feel that fans will continue to be ignorant of what happens at the club but like the board and the coach, fans also want good results. It's not right for any fan to talk bad of the coach or the board when the club is in a situation- but like the coach or board will try to remedy a bad situation at the club: A fan feels he can change the situation by talking (which can sometimes end up hurting the coach or the board) .

The coach, the board and the fans are all trying to protect their happiness but their approach are all different. So I won't blame the fans completely cos all the marathon is to entertain them and when you scratch a man where he doesn't feel itchy, most times they react.

{Ed002's Note - And that may be true but it is not like that on these pages - all of the toxic ignorant morons do no more than troll the site.}

8.) 06 Feb 2018 13:14:18
MDW I tend to agree with you on most things and yes Baka could benefit from a rest. He was poor last night.

But slating Cahill etc is shameful and pointless.

We'll be back, we're still top four and there will be a plan in place.

9.) 06 Feb 2018 14:39:23
Well said Nath and I fully agree about this site being trolled and made toxic. It is obvious who the trolls are as well. Real shame.

10.) 06 Feb 2018 18:12:54
I have read above, however I feel some of the players last night were very poor. Not only in there play but attitude. That being the case we as supporters should be able to be critical
The trouble is people post in anger ie having just watched what can be called an abysmal performance. So they react and maybe go over the top with there posts. But some of the performances last night were nothing short of awful.
Suffice to say players need to look at themselves and possibly have a team meeting and sort it.
The problem is there isn’t a JT or Frank to take hold of them, I think that is part of the problem. They would not have tolerated the last two performances.

11.) 06 Feb 2018 18:13:27
Do we know how long Christianson is out for.

12.) 06 Feb 2018 20:59:40
As frustrated as I was last night and in a lot of performances this season and conte seeming to take dogs at everyone at club. if players knew hat he is staying and they would be cashed in then maybe . maybe things would be better, it’s the cycle of the club and will happen to the next manager and one after.

13.) 07 Feb 2018 02:58:24
Conte is a Genius but like every genius he is a bit mad- Pirlo

Conte is great at building teams and winning titles but when things don't go his ways he becomes bit eccentric.
This has always been his problem in the past. In Juventus he famously quoted " you can't dine in $100 restaurant wearing $10 suit". This was said criticising juventus 's lack of spending. Two days after he parted ways.

Now similar story is playing out at Chelsea. He is disgruntled with mediocre buying of the board. Having said that we all know the spending power of Chelsea is greatly reduced by this so called financial Prudence. The club now clearly want to buy young players cheap and sell on a profit. Hence the bakayoko, Barkley, Emerson etc.

I am following Chelsea since 1999 and can't comment on the era before that. But this Chelsea side is used to winning and I can't fathom the lackluster attitude of players. Losing is fine but not trying to win is .

Squad needs rejuvenation and motivation. I am not sure Conte can do that but if he turns this around then I am sure we will achieve something great this season. A champions league perhaps😀 hey a fan can always wish.

Sorry for the long post.

PS: I am not a troll😂.

14.) 07 Feb 2018 17:56:29
Am I the only one who thinks that Chelsea's January spending was an incredible achievement - to get Barkley, Emerson (who I think we'll all be amazed that he was so cheap) and Giroud for an outlay of approx £40 mill - wow!

15.) 07 Feb 2018 21:10:10
MDW, I totally agree.



30 Jan 2018 19:07:44
Any chance of a sharkopod on the last day? (not Chelsea)


{Ed002's Note - Chances are slim.}

1.) 31 Jan 2018 06:03:01
Okay, thanks anyway.

Enjoying the David Alaba rumours.

Unlikely that there's any truth, but it would work for Chelsea IMO.


1.) 28 Jun 2020 14:25:48
It would be wonderful, but very much doubt that his present club would let it happen!

2.) 28 Jun 2020 17:39:06
Don't know, they've got probably the best young lb in Europe and Alaba's contract is up in a year.

3.) 28 Jun 2020 18:35:53
That's what I was thinking J.

4.) 28 Jun 2020 21:57:16
Selling Alaba makes all the sense in the world for Bayern. Davies is a stud at LB. Alaba has one year left on his contract and they would still be able to command a decent price which they could use in other more necessary holes.



01 Apr 2020 09:16:23
The Tifo Football Podcast (youtube) has a very good episode on Chelsea that was released this week.

It covers lots from Abramovich to the stdium devlopment and transfers.

Well worth a listen if you have time.

(If you enjoy that one, 'Straight Outta Cobham' is also very good)


1.) 01 Apr 2020 11:09:32
The Tifo football one was a very good listen.



23 Jan 2020 08:49:58
According to gossip mongering journo's Luka Jovic is available to buy.

I imagine he carries a hefty price tag but I'd love to think that there's a chance of Chelsea going for him.




12 Dec 2019 10:06:58
I want Juve in the next round!

Any takers?


1.) 12 Dec 2019 12:53:58
No; I don't have a death wish, I want the weakest team maybe RB Leipzig.

2.) 12 Dec 2019 21:00:15
RB would be good.

But I think that the team would be motivated above it's self against Juve.

3.) 12 Dec 2019 22:41:36
RBL or Bayern for me.



06 Dec 2019 14:50:43
Gents (and Ladies)

Can we all try to not p*ss off the EDs.

Now the ban is lifted and ED002 is back it would be nice to keep it that way for a window.



1.) 06 Dec 2019 15:33:26
Very reasonable post. Plus reading stupid transfer rumours on here does take the mic.

Standard got it right.

The price over 5 years plus becomes a good one.

I don't think you can compare him with an 'import' like Tsimikas.

Lanpard is doing somewhat better than Klopp did at this point.

I thought he'd nailed the tactics, we drew them out and they really created little. Leaving space to exploit.

Liverpool are class and we were clearly worried about the ball in behind, again Lampard was correct on that.

Two weeks in with no real preseason, bedding in New players.

I saw enough to be confident.

Completely different.

RLC is a different role completely.
