Payet rumours gathering pace, apparently between us and Marsellie now. Personally, I don't think he's what we need, so I hope these rumours aren't true. Any further updates eds?


{Ed002's Note - No.}

1.) 13 Jan 2017 17:22:42
I hope upon hope we never sign the likes of Payet. Not because of his ability, but any player refusing to play for there club should slung into the stand and fined his wages each week, so he would be sitting there for nothing. Certainly let him rot till the summer if not beyond. It may sound extreme but loyalty to your supporters if not your employer is important.
So no thank you

2.) 13 Jan 2017 19:31:18
So what's your opinion on Costa Andrew?

3.) 13 Jan 2017 19:42:53
Makelele supposedly did similar at Real Madrid prior to joining Chelsea.

4.) 13 Jan 2017 22:01:38
To be honest 11skelljcfc I didn't see the Costa story until about an hour ago. I have given my opinion on Costa above, and to be honest it is much the same. No player is bigger than the club.

5.) 13 Jan 2017 22:54:00
Fair enough.



22 Jun 2016 22:50:42
Guillem Balague seems to think we're willing to sell azpilicueta for around £14m, I don't know a great deal about how prices are determined but that seems incredibly low. He's invaluable to this team and shouldn't really be for sale at any price. I hope he's talking a load of rubbish, wouldn't be the first time.


1.) 23 Jun 2016 00:14:33
Considering how much Luke shaw was worth and Danilo when he moved to real (both fullbacks over 30m) selling azpilicuelta for less than 25m or at all is criminal.

2.) 23 Jun 2016 00:14:39
It's madness. How can youngsters who have never played for a first team be worth more the Dave.
He has been solid for outstanding for us since he has joined and to the think that he could be sold for 14mill.

3.) 23 Jun 2016 01:07:17
Plus he's brilliant at both sides, surely there's no way Chelsea would sell for that little? Plus he's still a good age.

4.) 23 Jun 2016 01:13:45
Rumour is Conte is looking at playing three at the back and doesn't see Dave as a proper wing back because too be honest although great defensively he's not fantastic going forward is he? I'd still like to see him on the right no matter what formation but we have to trust the manager.

5.) 23 Jun 2016 07:41:24
I wouldn't believe him, he said Ronaldo was going back to Utd last year.

6.) 23 Jun 2016 11:23:16
Off course we are not going sell any player to Man. Utd.

7.) 23 Jun 2016 12:16:52
It would be absoloutely criminal to sell azpilicueta to anyone never mind mourinhos United we would really show a lack of power allowing him to join United or any rival.

8.) 23 Jun 2016 17:10:43
I don't know what makes you think that we won't sell to Man Utd?

Juan Mata?

9.) 23 Jun 2016 18:13:35
We've sold too many good players in last few years, Mourinho didn't care about Mata and they've offered much more than any other club.
And they won't even try to sign any of our players.
There are only 2 important Chelsea players who might want to leave Costa and Willian. Reasons Madrid and money. Pedro might be pushed out by the time.

10.) 23 Jun 2016 19:22:04
I've lost count of how many times Ed002 has said if a player wants to leave and another club makes an acceptable offer Chelsea would sell.

11.) 24 Jun 2016 03:15:22
Yes we all no that redrosie were just sharing our views on the situation selling azpilicueta would be madness in my opinion. Antibot don't forget about courtois wither remember balague reported a while back if Madrid don't get de gea then courtois is der back up or no 2 plan I think he would leave personally if Madrid put in an offer and Chelsea accepted . I'd be quiet confident aswell that Costa will be back at athletico next season don't think he wants to stay that's the impression u get time will tell.

12.) 24 Jun 2016 08:35:04
I still think Dave is our next captain in waiting and will not be sold. His value to our club is"in my opnion" immeasurable. He is to Chelsea what Lham is to BM, and players of this ilk should be just as highly valued as the so called "superstars" as they perform at their very best, every time, in any position. He can't do what a Hazard does but at a level only slightly below, he does what he does week in, week out.

13.) 26 Jun 2016 02:35:35
Why do you all keep saying we won't sell a player to Man Utd? Don't you remember a certain ex Chelsea player of the year called a Juan Mata?



04 Sep 2015 08:50:52

Will John stones remain a Chelsea target despite Everton telling us that he isn't for sale? Do you think we will bid for him in either January or next summer? I like him as a player and would love him as a long term partner with zouma. Everton seemed pretty sure in the fact he isn't for sale but his transfer request surely suggests that long term he would rather join a bigger club.



{Ed002's Note - Chelsea will not overpay for him. Right now the club has moved on. If he were to be available at a reasonable price in the future, possibly.}

1.) 04 Sep 2015 13:22:36
Everton need a rain check if they think John Stones is going to retire their.
Stones will move on eventually and I reckon it will be next summer, its the question what club are going to pay a silly price for him.
Stones will want a move to a club that plays champions league football, it's very footballers dream.

2.) 04 Sep 2015 15:28:34
Cheers for the reply ed.

3.) 04 Sep 2015 20:25:44
Ay wheely, a rain check?? That saying has absolutely nothing to do with what u r saying, I think u mean a reality check, yano like Chelsea got when they thought they could buy stones even though he wasn't for sale haha?

4.) 05 Sep 2015 11:01:54
Yeah that's the one mate haha



20 Aug 2015 23:20:06
My brother has just told me ( I don't know the source and he tends to be unreliable haha ), that we've offered £50m plus Cuadrado for Pogba. Apparently Juventus have said they'll consider it if we change the player to willian or Ramires. If true I would snap their hand off and take Pogba for £50m plus Pogba! Sadly the story seems unbelievable and incredibly specific unless something has been leaked. Fingers crossed but I personally can't see the deal happening


1.) 21 Aug 2015 07:07:00
Instead of ramires and 50m could we give them ramires, mikel and 60m?

2.) 21 Aug 2015 09:53:54
Instead of Ramires, Mikel and £60m could we give them Ramires, Mikel, Cuadrado, Ivanovic, Willian, Cahill and £110m?



04 Jun 2015 19:44:56
ssn claiming sampdoria president has said he will sign zouma. Seems unlikely as he's played well in the few appearances he made last season and seems a natural Terry or Cahill long term replacement

Really struggled to create anything today, very frustrating. Felt like we did enough to win but couldn’t get through. Morata is so annoying to watch, goes down so easily and always offside.

Needed to bring on Pedro, Giroud and Barkley with half an hour to go because it was clearly not working.

Man Utd win best for us next so fingers crossed.


1.) 11 Nov 2018 17:05:47
Yeap. Morata very annoying. He focuses on complaining than getting a goal. He may have to go really. Not the player to take us to next level. Costa started like that but he was intelligent enough to figure it out.

2.) 11 Nov 2018 17:18:46
I thought everyone from our midfield to striker were below part (minus kante of course who as always was covering so much ground)

3.) 11 Nov 2018 17:20:59
Barkley was terrible when he came on! Don’t get me wrong I want him to do well but today and against Liverpool he gave the ball away cheaply and didn’t allow us to build pressure.

4.) 11 Nov 2018 20:31:23
I am loathe to criticise any Chelsea player and was hoping that Morata would improve . but he hasn't and he has got to go - he is just awful. What does Morata give us that Tammy Abraham couldn't = nothing; what does Tammy Abraham give us that Morata doesn't = I don't know but I'm betting it wouldn't be less!

5.) 11 Nov 2018 22:38:05
Didn’t get very long though, Jorginho was awful, so sloppy. Kovacic did ok but didn’t offer any attacking threat and Kante did pretty well defensively but again nothing going forward. At least Barkley will make a run and have a shot, that’s what we needed.

6.) 11 Nov 2018 23:29:09
Barkley gave the ball away constantly and was very sloppy in possession. Kovacic was allowing us to build pressure and pulling the Everton midfielders and defenders out of position. As soon as Barkley was introduced we seemed unable to build any meaningful attack.

7.) 12 Nov 2018 10:52:38
We didn’t build a meaningful attack without him either, Jorginho spent all game giving the ball away.

8.) 12 Nov 2018 11:21:46
I think the problem is that we have no goal threat from midfield when kovavic, kante and jorginhnk plays.

I do believe that kovavic should rotate with Kante, but for me Kante is too good to be changed therefore there is really no place in starting eleven for kivavic atm.

9.) 12 Nov 2018 12:04:01
Agreed, Barkley can be sloppy there’s no doubt but he also scores goals which is something we are still struggling with at times. Jorginho, Kante and Kovacic might get 5 between them all season.



04 Nov 2018 17:52:57
Weren’t great today but got the result which is the main thing. Good to see Morata back in the goals and 2 good ones too.

Palace looked very dangerous on the break and I think that was one of Daves worst ever games, so sloppy. I hope that was just a one off.

Played some good stuff when hazard came on which despite the Burnley game shows we are still very much reliant on him.

2nd in the league now and just 2 points off top, long may this form continue. COYB.


1.) 04 Nov 2018 18:13:35
We probably have watched 2 different games, palace only had one clear chance and it was their goal. They basically kept 10 players defending all the time with only Zaha being up front but isolated.

We controlled the game and deserved victory, well played to the boys!

2.) 04 Nov 2018 19:03:11
Every time they broke, which I didn't say was often, they looked like they could hurt us. Still not convinced with Luiz at the back but we know what we're getting with him. We were far from our best today and won well in the end which can only be a good thing.



10 Aug 2018 16:03:06
Michy loan as good as done by the looks of it. Very frustrating, even if Morata does get back to his best it’s still a long season with Europa and I’d prefer Michy over Giroud as second choice.




05 Aug 2018 12:23:44
Off to the game today, might be a friendly but Wembley fixtures are always exciting and it would be nice for Sarri to win his first bit of silverware. I’m most excited about seeing Hudson-Odoi and even Barkley properly in the flesh, expecting big things this season!


1.) 05 Aug 2018 13:39:35
dont expect much from barkley i watched him wednesday v arsenal in the aviva he was truly awfull especially trackimg back our midfield looked non existant at times . fabregas an barkley aren't good enough. im also excited for hudson hope he shines today he looks an amazing talent.

2.) 05 Aug 2018 14:19:24
I’m trying to stay optimistic about Barkley, he’s still young enough to come through but this season will probably be make or break. With Jorginho and Kante he should get some freedom to go forward and do his best work.

3.) 05 Aug 2018 16:33:13
dont honestly he's dreadfull. mate so is fabregas and drinkwater we are getting absoloutely embarrased out there.



14 Jul 2018 15:31:46
Has Zola been confirmed as assistant? I haven’t seen anything about it.


1.) 14 Jul 2018 21:55:00
Hope so!

I have the exact same problem! Doesn’t help he wears Hazards old number either.


{Ed001's Note - I thought I was the only one who struggled with those two! They move so similarly and I usually use a player's movement to tell them apart when they look similar. It is incredible how often I have mixed those two up and had to correct myself.}

I’m a bit surprised Cahill didn’t go anywhere, was it just a case of no teams showing interest?

Wow did not expect that ed, if we get this done I’ll be in shock. We don’t have long to agree personal terms and sort a medical though so I’m not getting my hopes up just yet.

For the sake of being different I’ll say Morata and Bakayoko were the ones that I thought would be great for us and really disappointed. Oscar as well I thought looked great and really thought he’d be with us for years but then he left before his prime.

For the one that surprised me I’ll go with Marcos Alonso. Remembering him at Sunderland and Bolton, I did not have high hopes at all but that first season under Conte especially, he was immense.

It’s a tough question that because I feel most players did get the credit they deserved at the time but maybe not so much after they left. Mad to say but at times it honestly feels like people forget just how crucial Cech was for us, especially since he went to arsenal. Deco as well was unplayable at times and played a decent role in us winning the double but got a bit unlucky with injuries and is seen as a flop by most people.
