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.



03 Jan 2018 10:52:48
On the SSN Transfer Talk podcast (02/ 01/ 18) there's a good explanation of both the Cortois and Hazard situations.

Chelsea have offered a big contract to Cortois, it's complicated by his family issues but optimistic for Chelsea.

Hazard not yet discussed contract, there's some miscommunication regarding an extention, but Real may not even move for him.

It's worth a listen for full details.


1.) 04 Jan 2018 10:40:50
Thanks for then heads up on this!



12 Oct 2017 18:04:31
On the Totally Football podcast this week, Rafa Honigstein said that Conte will probaly move on in the Summer and that we've had early talks with Thomas Tuchel.

He's a decent journo but hopefully wrong on this occasion (albeit Tuchel would be a decent option if 'The Hammer' left. )


1.) 12 Oct 2017 18:40:22
In my opinion touchel is the complete and utter worse case, and all out attack manager who came in stuck tactically with Dortmund and fell out with there board, imagine him under our board and in prem if your not tactically on point it’s shows, it’s ok in Bundeslig where you have 4/ 5 tough games ( not opponents ) in the league, only manager is like would be Algeri, I’d be gutted if conte walked away. Such a top class manager, feel we couldn of backed him bit more,

2.) 12 Oct 2017 21:42:42
I really don't think Tuchel would be first choice if Conte did go. But they need to plan for succession.

3.) 12 Oct 2017 22:43:12
I never really pay any attention to the media nowadays but personally I'd be surprised if he did indeed stay. We're a club that likes to go through manager to manager whenever things go south not matter how highly rated you are or much you're loved by fans (Mourinho, Ancelotti) . If we fail to win anything this year or we fall far behind in the league he'll be gone as hard as it is to say. I remember reading a while ago as well that he wanted more control and to be seen as an actual manager rather than a "Head coach". Club is bigger than anyone so if he does go we'll move on as always, but this one would hurt more than any other.

4.) 13 Oct 2017 20:38:40
Big Sam anybody?

5.) 13 Oct 2017 22:50:02
My guess is that every football fan believes that the media/ press desperately try to undermine/ sensationalise all aspects of their club.
Chelsea as the best team in the world understandably attract a much wider media commentary than any other team.
The unfortunate thing is that most of the comments made by nearly all of the various forms of media are total rubbish!

6.) 16 Oct 2017 08:53:39
I'm with Matt on this. I don't like Tuchel, at all. He's an all out gungho attack manager, and unless you've got ridiculously talented attackers like City, that's not going to work. If Conte were to move on I would actually like us to maybe get Sarri. Brilliant coach, though it's doubtful he'd leave Napoli with them doing so well.

7.) 16 Oct 2017 11:18:01
I'd go with Sarri too, although he's equally as gungho.

29 Mar 2018 12:59:27
So everyone is convinced Conte is off, but where?

Just my opinion but.

PSG: cannot see him and Neymar happening.

Madrid: more interested in Poch.

Italy: been there since that.

Milan: very dodgy situation, no chance.

Bayern: dark horses but there's a plethora of young German coaches and dealing with their hierarchy will present some similar issues to Marina and Co.

Arsenal: ha ha ha ha ha ha. No.

Inter are happy enough, Allegri will stay put.

I'm confused.


1.) 29 Mar 2018 19:17:24
Neymar wants out of psg anyway so whoever is there won’t make difference, his style would suit psg because even he can play attacking football in the league and still walk it but in Europe although his record isn’t great he will be hard to beat,



15 Jan 2017 11:04:10
A moment for Alonso please.

I've seen him take a load of flack. I have no idea why?

He had a wand of a left foot, works like a horse, and adds height to our team.

Absolute class. A brilliant signing.


1.) 15 Jan 2017 18:26:54
Wand of a left foot? I agree with the other points but despite scoring 2 yesterday his shooting is pretty awful on the whole, he's missed a lot of chances. The first goal was with his right foot too!

2.) 15 Jan 2017 18:45:53
Stick him in a back four and he's probably awful but credit where it's due, he fits the formation really well and having a left footed player on the left side brings so much balance to our play.

3.) 15 Jan 2017 18:55:16
I'll stand by that, check out his free kicks and his long passes / crosses. He finds his man far more than most.

4.) 15 Jan 2017 21:39:21
Well said Nathswindon, the guy is class, his record in our side speaks for itself. How could anyone doubt him? 1 defeat at Spurs and won every other game he has played in! Ake is now good cover for him as well. We probably need a bit of cover on the other side though, Antonio of west ham would be nice to cover or compete with Moses.



30 Nov 2016 07:13:17
Is Niklas Sule one of the centre half we're looking at?

His highlights reel looks the business.


1.) 30 Nov 2016 08:24:39
I listened to Ed002's Everton podcast, and if I recall correctly Ed stated that we indeed hold an interest in Sule. However, Ed also said that Sule is happy at Hoffenheim and will stay there for another couple of years in all probability.
It's a shame, because he looks really good for a young defender.
Imagine a future back 3 of Zouma, Christensen and Sule. It's the stuff of dreams.

2.) 30 Nov 2016 10:35:40
Nice work Jackson.

3.) 30 Nov 2016 18:24:59
Zouma and Sule aren't the greatest on the ball think there's only room for one of them. If we are going for a CB it should be Romagnoli. Good on the ball and it'd be nice to have a left footer on his natural side.

4.) 30 Nov 2016 18:49:13
He might not be left footed, but Sule is really good on the ball actually.

5.) 30 Nov 2016 20:58:48
Looks great in possession to me. Agree with the point in general.

{Ed002's Note - Sule is of interest to Chelsea but does not want to be bench fodder elsewhere. He is well respected in Germany and is seen as a potential first team centre back at Chelsea, but the club will not give game time commitments to players. So it will be a hard sell but the club will look to do something if they can.}

6.) 30 Nov 2016 22:12:16
He looks like he knows what he is doing. Zouma/ Azpi Luiz and Sule?

7.) 01 Dec 2016 03:04:52
Is Christensen not a ball playing back? He looks better than Cahill on the ball, but I have not seen enough of him to say that for sure.

8.) 01 Dec 2016 08:00:29
Sule should be realistic. He might not play 100% of the games, but he's got to be confident of beating out Cahill as competition for a place. And hopefully we'll have some European football next season which would give us plenty of games to rotate and give everyone a good amount of time on the pitch.



28 Aug 2016 08:49:52
Is there any truth in the Brozovic rumours? (Apparently Chelsea and Arsenal are interested)

He's a nice player, could mean Matic or Fabregas would move on perhaps?


1.) 28 Aug 2016 13:05:42
Do you really think that Conte would give up world class player for good promising CM? Newspaper have to write something so they are writing all kind of BS(latest is about Fabregas). You are free to believe in Santa if you want, but try to think more realistic. Conte changed Chelsea significantly in tactical order(IMO on better).He wants to play with 3 CMs and 4141 is closest to his type of 352. IHO Oscar is fitting better than Fabregas but he probably has in mind that Fabregas has clinical pass and Oscar doesn't. So I believe that he will rotate those 2 players.
If we really sign Marcelo Brozovic(btw I like the player)all I can see is another loan for Chalobah. ATM we need left back and if there is any possibility left footed central back.

2.) 28 Aug 2016 15:52:26
Antibot. You just nailed it.

3.) 28 Aug 2016 15:53:15
I think when we have the 3 centre backs on, Ie return of Zouma and a new signing, cesc will start a lot more. We will see how we start doing over the next month here on, we've had a good start but against weaker teams. We're going to need a creater against the likes of Liverpool, Spurs and arsenal. I think we'll struggle without his influence.

4.) 28 Aug 2016 20:18:12
Well argued points one and all.

For what it's worth I don't believe in Santa, and I figured (given where the reports came from) it was just Brozovic's agent drumming up interest.

Regardless, I'm not convinced Conte will see Cesc as a starter and that may make him a restless player.

I think Matic will stay and play a lot this season.

5.) 28 Aug 2016 22:39:38
Great then we all agree about something. 😉.



21 Feb 2016 16:02:54
Had anyone been looking closely at Kante? Would he be of any interest to Chelsea?


{Ed002's Note - Try the Leicester page.}

1.) 21 Feb 2016 19:25:31
He has been mentioned on here and on most of the so called top teams sites. Been Leicesters best player this year along with mahrez.

I'd stick with Morata all day long.

Tibo is overrated.

Golovin is very different to Drinkwater / Barklay. He'd be a good signing

Rugani looks great in highlights, but I've not seen a great deal.

Obinna, Manolas is fine but an in form Luiz is far better. Plus Manolas would cost a fair amount and Luiz wouldn't fetch much in return.

Of course, but it's not as if Sarri will consider him essential.
