I’ve heard from the person I mentioned before that we fully expect to lose the appeal and are just using it as a way to extend the ban back by as far as possible to allow us to sign players.

Apparently we will get as many in as possible, though I’m told not just for the first team but also to allow us to sign younger players for the youth teams to prevent us having to recall certain players that we don’t want anymore.

I’m hoping that this means we can get a few prospects in and then sell off some of the players currently out on loan, in addition to a few first team players.
What do you guys think?

Roweycfc

1.) 03 Mar 2019 15:06:38
To be honest rowey I’m happy to have a few years of transition I for one believe we definitely have a few younger players on loan that are good enough for our first team and maybe this will be the only way we see them. If we don’t finish top 4 for a year or 2 but see the intergration of some good youth and the building of a new vibrant team I’d be very happy with that.


2.) 04 Mar 2019 15:43:54
There's no reason why we should have to keep outside of the top 4 to do that. You could argue that the likes of Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Kurt Zouma, Reece James are all better than players in the squad already. There's no doubt that bringing in some of these players would bring some character into the team.


3.) 04 Mar 2019 19:27:40
If anyone thinks doing well in the championship I’d close go prem league then there are problems imo, Hanford has proved time and time again his good on championship but no good making the step up. Playing against golf players and then up against seasoned internationals and world class players in most positions is a bit of a leap, if we get a ban and have to use these players on loan then too 4 would be a miracle. It’s tough enough with the team we have with the likes of hazard and kante, players like baker who was another next big thing who can hit the balm with both feet doesn’t get alook in the championship. It’d be the dream to have al these kids be the ones who make it but unfortunately we over hype them, Mount has shown in patches his a good player but not consistent and has gone missing yet we want him up against De Bruyne and pogba etc. Come on.


4.) 04 Mar 2019 20:02:30
Playing and training with better players week in week out Matt could only help and with the right coaching nurturing who’s to say they couldn’t be good enough for the squad
Didn’t dele Alli come from the championship Matt?
Didn’t Harry Kane have loads of loans none of them where he set the world alight?


5.) 04 Mar 2019 20:22:25
Dale Alli, and how many others have come from championship to be established first team players in a top 6 team? We do need to get Reece James and Abraham in and around squad, but a transfer ban and relying on these players and thinking we can compete for too 4 is a stretch, we know full well the win the title you need quality in depth let alone relying on them from the start. The way to do it is by adding 1 or 2 amongst the hazards and kantes etc, like Cho and RLC and Ampadu but a bit more than we are at the moment.


6.) 04 Mar 2019 22:38:29
Yeah that’s a good point Matt.


 

 

28 Jan 2019 21:04:50
So it turns out I might have been working with someone who has friends at the club for weeks...
Apparently we will be signing a young forward from Bristol City with Kalas permanently going the other way.
Posting this here to check the veracity of the rumour, so if it’s a load of rubbish don’t shoot the messenger haha.

Also have been told that the signing of Pulisic has made a lot of the youth staff disillusioned with the academy, questioning the point of it. Not sure whether that is directly linked to CHO or what, it wasn’t made clear to me, but I thought I’d post that too!
Hope this is legit, would be pretty exciting to get the occasional tidbit!

Roweycfc

1.) 28 Jan 2019 21:25:15
Rumour it is Antoine Semenyo of Bristol City.


2.) 28 Jan 2019 21:54:22
Local Bristol press have been reporting Semenyo will sign for us for the past couple of days.


3.) 28 Jan 2019 21:59:49
That rumour regarding Semenyo has been around for a few days now. I hope the kid know what his doing before he signs for the mighty blues.


4.) 28 Jan 2019 22:47:17
Fair enough guys, I’m not sure if the guy had heard this before the papers, I’ll have to try to chat to him more regularly in future to check haha.


5.) 29 Jan 2019 00:42:50
I think the Pulusic signing absolutely could have dissalusioned the youth and the staff. There’s no chance Willian leaves in the summer therefore if no one else leaves that’s hazard Willian Pulusic CHO (in that order), Sarri also barely rotated so I don’t see why he would stay unless hazard/ Willian leave. Cho is possibly just as good as Pulusic possibly better just hasn’t had the chance.

{Ed0333's Note - CHO is not as good as Pulisic mate IMO. I think you’ll be surprised just how good the fella is Standard. He was on fire the season before last in the Bundesliga and if he gets anywhere near that level you’ll have an excellent player.


6.) 29 Jan 2019 15:31:45
I think PULISIC isn't getting in the team because he is leaving. maybe wrong but that what I think.


7.) 29 Jan 2019 15:34:24
Alright mate good to know, I’ve honestly seen Pulusic for about 120 minutes this year so I’m not clued up on it. Reckon he’ll start over Willian next year?


8.) 29 Jan 2019 07:38:45
Ed0333; I wouldn't agree with you completely yet (that Hudson Odoi isn't as good as Pulisic) ; cos this is the English football that we are talking about- a league that you must first- learn before you can make an impact in. Hudson already knows English football, I am positive that Pulisic will be great for us too but I haven't seen him in English football yet, so there's still some uncertainty there in what Pulisic can do in this unpredictable English football. My dream Ed will be seeing both Hudson Odoi and Pulisic play for Chelsea. They are both fantastic players and kudos to the board for buying a player like Pulisic but Hudson Odoi has got to stay long-term (he is the first player that has handed in a transfer request and still stayed at a club longterm for years) .

{Ed0333's Note - mate I absolutely have no doubt both Odoi and Pulisic will be tremendous for you and I hope both of them get the platform to showcase their talents. I’ve seen more of Pulisic than I have Odoi hence my sunjective opinion. You will know better than me about odois abilities. What I will say Pulisic will bring you massive exposure in the USA which is a bonus.


 

 

16 Jan 2019 21:43:55
Is it just me or do you guys agree that after how exciting this window seemed to be going a few weeks ago, we seem to have reeled in quite a bit and slowed down?

Is this an indication that perhaps the transfer ban may not come into effect until after the summer now? I would think if we were facing a ban, a striker younger and/or more in shape than current higuain would be being talked about, unless the club is placing a lot of faith in someone like Tammy Abraham for next season, with Morata seemingly on the way out, that would leave us with two ageing strikers, which I’m not sure would be such a good thing when you also consider the age of our current starting wide players.

Roweycfc

1.) 16 Jan 2019 22:29:52
Can’t see anything happening re ban for a while yet. Ed002 I know you said Chelsea haven’t yet been charged, but do you think they will be?

{Ed002's Note - Of course.}


2.) 16 Jan 2019 23:01:28
wel wev just signed a proven goalscorer so its not all doom and gloom.


3.) 16 Jan 2019 23:13:52
Rowe, it always surprises me that supporters of football clubs expect and desire signings should be done on the first few days of any window.

We certainly got out of the blocks quickly this window with the signi of Pusilic.

Unfortunately we can’t just expect to buy a player from a club without that club having first secured a replacement. Generally our club would behave in a similar way.

I do think that’s we should be selling some of our loan army and also squad players who are not getting games.
These players require no need for us to sign cover. Although, we may, as in the past, regret some of those sales.


4.) 17 Jan 2019 01:11:54
Can someone fill me in? Ed? What are we being banned for? Illegal approaches to younger players and payments to families?

{Ed002's Note - The issue was that Chelsea took a player and used him without registering him.}


5.) 17 Jan 2019 08:09:40
Yeah, that is sort of what I was thinking Tom, a few people like Moses and Cahill I thought would be out now (though I know they are cover and homegrown so not taking up spots), I’m just thinking that if the ban does come down in the summer (not sure how likely Ed thinks this is? ) that this window is our last chance to sign players for an entire season and and we have loaned a 31 year old out of shape Higuain (and admittedly a young, potential star in Pulisic, who excites me! ) .
We lack goals and have an ageing forward line (especially as Morata seems to be onnthe way out, and I would be worried if we didn’t not address this.


6.) 17 Jan 2019 13:48:37
Roweycfc: I agree with your worry about Higuain and because he is not as fit as he could be we certainly need to hang onto Giroud as there is a chance he will only last half a match; we also need to get the crosses in with both players. I have seen Pulisic three times this season and if he's picked next week against Hannover 06 I will see him again. He is only potential, nowhere near the finished article and I prefer him down the middle because he is quick and has a nice touch; less effective on the wing. 'If' we keep hold of Hudson-Odoi and with Pulisic we add so much pace, something we have been lacking recently BUT Bayern friends are adamant they will sign him!


7.) 17 Jan 2019 15:51:11
Thanks Edward2.


8.) 17 Jan 2019 17:12:55
Ed 002
Do you think the ban will start before the next transfer window?
Or would the club be more likely to appeal to give them the chance to sign and sell a few players?
Many thanks.
T.

{Ed002's Note - What ban?}


9.) 17 Jan 2019 18:47:32
Sorry I thought you meant the club would receive a transfer ban for the incident you mentioned.

{Ed002's Note - No, there have to be charges and replies to those charges, etc., etc.}


10.) 17 Jan 2019 18:58:38
Phew!
Thanks Ed 002 .


11.) 18 Jan 2019 10:45:35
Even if the club were to receive a ban I can only imagine that they would then appeal, as with other cases like Barcelona etc. Therefore the ban would come into place in the window after.


 

 

28 Dec 2018 15:51:17
Just wondering if anyone knows if Chelsea will be acting during the January window under the assumption that we have a transfer ban coming? It might mean selling a few more players than we would usually do mid season and perhaps buying a few younger players than we have done for a few years, perhaps loaning them back to their current clubs until the summer?
Thanks!

Roweycfc

1.) 29 Dec 2018 00:19:44
Without Ed002, we are running blind. But the Sharkopod did reveal:
A lot of clubs have spoken to us about multiple players.
Seems RLC will be staying.
Cesc might go to Monaco permanently.
Gladbach approached about Christensen again.
We're on of many clubs interested in Jean Clair-Taibo of Toulouse.
Drinkwater to Fulham seems possible.
This is why people need to respect Ed002 more, the Sharkopod was gold dust.


2.) 29 Dec 2018 02:57:17
Well reportedly personal terms agreed for Pulisic for the summer!


3.) 29 Dec 2018 08:37:17
Thanks for sharing the summary RJ28P

I agree with your comments about Ed002. We are the only losers on this one!


4.) 29 Dec 2018 11:34:32
Thing is, Ed002 could give us a whole lot of info and it could change within a week. He’s also not correct 100% of the time no one is, so just follow BBC sport and Sky sports, they’re the most reliable sites.

We need to move on from the ed2 stuff, he’s not helping end of. We have Ed001 anyway.


5.) 29 Dec 2018 11:57:33
Ha ha bbc sport and sky sport report things just before they happen. Ed02 posts accurate stuff about who we are looking to sign way before anyone else. Need ed02 back as soon as possible . And he posts stuff on the latest position at that time.


6.) 29 Dec 2018 12:52:11
I know sid but he’s not going to help us again we need to move on. Is the abuse on this page really worse than the United and Liverpool pages. I doubt it.


7.) 29 Dec 2018 19:15:16
Sky sports just trawl Twitter and make stuff up for Sky bet. The BBC gossip column is just guff from papers.
If you want proof, Google Liverpool, Sky bet, Franck Ribery.


8.) 29 Dec 2018 23:33:39
Obviously the gossip section is dross, I’m talking about the main page lol. Just wait for real confirmation because even if we’re yold were interested in a player it may never happen.


 

 

20 May 2018 14:26:28
I’m not sure about you guys but the more I think about what some players are saying about defensive football but also needing better players I can’t help but wonder if Conte has said to them, “we are playing the way we are because we don’t have the personnel to match top teams with attacking football” if that is the case, I think he has a point.

I’ve been seeing fans in a lot of places saying we play boring football and have done since the days of Carlo or whatever, but I genuinely thought we were a joy to watch last year.

This year our midfield’s deficiency has meant we have needed an extra body in there to prevent us from being overrun repeatedly, and has meant we have had to change the style of play to be a bit more conservative, but I would not be surprised personally if Conte did stay, we signed a few key players and the football becomes much more like last season to the one just gone again. Watch me proven wrong in 10 minutes when Conte is sacked now haha.

Roweycfc

1.) 20 May 2018 15:16:53
Rowey, if Conte did say anything like that to the players, he might of well have said 'We have to play this way cos you lot are crap'! So, no, I don't think he said that. Also, this is basically the same team minus 2 who romped away with the League last season.

Also, you say that our midfield is deficient but we have the best midfielder in the country in Kante.

Conte's whole history as player and manager is one of defensive football; he played and managed at Juve, with Italy, and now at Chels in exactly the same way. He doesn't know how to attack. And that's the reason that he must go.


2.) 20 May 2018 17:12:44
He said something along the lines of 'the only way CHelsea could have won the FA Cup was by playing defensive because he doesn't have the players otherwise'


3.) 20 May 2018 17:38:29
For me Conte must go, I tend to agree with most of your views on him Miss Darren Wood.

I Can't bare to watch the same defensive dross next year, it's hard to watch. Fair enough we won the FA Cup, but that sort of tactics in this day and age isn't ideal. We have the players to be more expressive regardless of what Conte says that he doesn't have the personnel.

It's clear he has lost the dressing room. Cahill, Fabregas and Hazard said nothing positive lamenting his defensive tactics at the end of the triumph. Willian crossed him out from a picture. Rudiger said the same a month or two ago after the West Ham draw and got dropped. David Luiz experienced the same and has never returned.

A manager is important but unless you buy a defensive players then under Conte they will be unhappy. For me you can replace a defensive coach, but it's harder to replace top players.

Lol who do you replace Conte or a gang of players like Hazard, Tibo, Fabregas, Willian, Luiz, Cahill, Rudiger etc. We let go of Costa because of his issues with Conte and we still ain't replaced him. I wonder what Drinkwater, Barkley, Batshuayi, Emerson etc think of Conte. Have they been given a fair chance? Baka was a different player at Monaco last year, how do we know That Conte's tactics are not suited to him. He was a beast last year in an attacking team. However Conte wants him to be more defence.

Conte out!


4.) 20 May 2018 20:30:45
Punting aside posters views on our so called present style of football, for me it’s about a manager being able to manage.
All players who aren’t picked should be angry. We have players like Willian, Cahil, Pedro and Cesc who have reached an age when they want/ demand to play.
If they want to leave then as far as I’m concerned, so be it. I will be happy to give Kennedy, Hudson Odoi, Mount, RLC and others being given a chance.

We have made some strange signings this season but Conte managed to win a Premiership after we finished mid table. This season we haven’t played well but still managed to win another pot under his management.
So, for me I would rake a period of manergerial stability rather than continued so called player power!


5.) 20 May 2018 21:01:23
We need stability a manager that gets told he’s got time to intergrate the youth loan players and build for the future we have quite a few 30+ players that need moving on for some younger players.


6.) 20 May 2018 21:15:59
Watching Chelsea player of the year awards my word we have some brilliant young players we have got to start using these lads the club really needs stability a manager that’s gunna utilise these boys because we could really have the class of the 90’s like United.


7.) 20 May 2018 21:36:07
I agree and have done for a long time I think I was the first to say it here well before Xmas and got dogs abuse for it
Conte has to go why
Formation
Style
Substitutions weird
Not willing to adapt to lesser teams
Negativity to board
Negativity to transfers
Negativity to players falling out with loads of them
Way he treated Costa if true plus luiz
Enough said.


8.) 20 May 2018 22:20:55
I’ve said I believe Conte should stay and we should look to stability in our management and got slaughtered by some on this site.
I also said Conte would see out this season and got slaughtered.
I was convicted he would be our manager next season but a recent event has given me some doubts.
If Conte is to staying and I still hope he is, then he and the club have to sort out his contractual term asap.


9.) 20 May 2018 23:52:08
I completely forget, his substitutions alone are completely crazy. Amount of games we are trailing and he doesn't use a substitution until 75th minute or so. Even yesterday, we are winning 1-0, players like Fabregas and Giroud were shattered. He doesn't put on any fresh legs and when he does he takes off out best player Eden Hazard. If Man Utd had scored in stoppage time then we practically would have have lost in extra time based on that substitution alone. Yesterday's whole game plan was based on a long ball for a Giroud to flick and hazard to dribble as much as he can and wait for reinforcements.

Tom B, I appreciate your comments regarding stability, however Conte ain't the man for it mate. To much negativety around the man.


10.) 21 May 2018 06:29:17
I agree with some I think Cnte has to go. But I also feel he is working with what he’s got. If the likes of pedro, willian, Beyoncé, drinkwater and others were playing well then yes they should have being played. But pedro in particular is just running around like a headless chicken. Bartley and drinkwater are just a Yard too slow, no pace. We all know willian on his day is a world beater but he doesn’t have regular days like that.
I don’t think at the moment we have the players to go head to head with teams. As for the long ball to Gironde. He’s the first striker we have had in a long time who can challenge for a header.
All in all it’s not been a great season but there will be a lot of comings and goings in the summer let’s see what next season brings.


11.) 21 May 2018 12:29:30
Love the idea of Beyonce playing for us ;)


12.) 22 May 2018 11:41:11
We bemoan the make-up of our midfield, but to read between the lines and make a good guess, it would appear that Luiz has been ignored due to a spat with Conte. I agree that the manager is THE boss, but to ignore a player (who could have slotted in next to Kante, is better that Cesc for defensive duties and is just as capable of playing defence-splitting long balls) just because of personal differences, seems to be a total and childish waste of an available talent.

02 Aug 2017 17:57:27
I totally get that it's a massive fee and completely get that the club maybe just can't compete financially for that type of transfer, but if this Neymar to PSG deal goes through I think that will be the end to any chance of us signing any similar truly world class and highly marketable players like him for the considerable future (not that I was holding my breath anyway) as all players in that bracket will have similar fees demanded for them.

Not being negative as I still think we can get quality players and compete for top honours, but seeing someone like him moving to the French league shows that there really is only one thing that some players really care about. At least it's not China and we can still see him play against top teams in the CL.

Roweycfc

1.) 02 Aug 2017 18:33:23
Im not joking and I know we've spent big on morata but that's due to fee's being over board but the Torres deal I think has made us so much more cautious when going for players, we done £50m and he was a flop. ( some might say )


2.) 02 Aug 2017 19:33:46
I've said this before but nowadays I feel we go for the good players and don't get me wrong, Kante, Luiz etc are very very good players. But the top top players we don't look to anymore, whether that's the actual case I don't know but from the outside that's how it looks. We used to be linked with all these top players (neymar, bale and so on) . Since the Torres signing things seem to have changed with the way we target players.


3.) 02 Aug 2017 21:59:56
I feel Hazard, Costa and Kante when we signed them were all truly top players, so I'd have to disagree with you there bobby, but players worth much more we don't even get linked to really anymore, I'll agree there.


4.) 02 Aug 2017 22:07:05
The year before Utd signed Pogba, we pushed really hard for him and I believe we got quite close but Juve didn't want to sell. Last year we pushed hard for Griezmann but his behaviour put us off. A couple years before that we were interested in Reus (before his injuries) but his issues put us off. And we also held talks about signing Messi a few years ago but in the end he didn't want to leave.

Whilst the fact that we didn't sign any of the above may be disappointing, the club has indeed tried to sign the sort of superstar players you're talking about. And it's mostly been down to either personal issues or the fact that the clubs/ players changed their minds and decided to stay.
I wouldn't fault the club for it. The fact that we're seemingly willing to spend nearly £60m on a Left back, should indicate that the club will pay world record fees for top tier players.


5.) 03 Aug 2017 12:07:41
We've registered our interest in Mbappe and Verratti - the problem is not that we don't try for them but that, if either Barcelona or Real are interested, the player wants to go to them (can't really say I blame them! ) .


 

 

02 Jun 2017 10:58:35
Is it looking like Chelsea will have any deals sorted before the window opens (the 10th of June, right? )? I always like when we get deals done early, it really seems to signal intent.

Thanks.

Roweycfc

1.) 02 Jun 2017 12:02:15
Yeah signals intent and also helps if the manager can have a full preseason with the players, signing players after the league starts is tough on the players and is a tad desperate.


2.) 02 Jun 2017 14:22:51
And chelsea seems to like delaying deals.


3.) 02 Jun 2017 20:19:32
I just hope they listen to Conte's needs and not what someone else thinks is a 'good buy' like Cuadrado, Rahman, Saleh, Hector and Co.


4.) 02 Jun 2017 20:23:23
Delays could be down to other teams/ players/ agents/ matches/ etc. Why does it mean Chelsea are delaying deals? Would make no sense.

Also, the Nike deal hasn't kicked in yet, so why would they want a new player to parade around in an Adidas shirt that we won't be wearing? All little things add up.


5.) 02 Jun 2017 22:22:03
Much more concerned with the ideal player rather than the ideal timing.


 

 

31 Mar 2017 15:49:50
Hey fellow Chelsea fans!
I've been thinking for the past month or so, since we were drawn against united in the quarter finals how much I actually want us to lift the FA cup come May.

I obviously want us to win everything available every year, but this year especially it's been too long since we won the FA cup in my opinion, and with no european distractions this season it seems the ideal time to hopefully secure another one.

I'm fondly remembering the late 2000's when we seemed to win it every other year, and I'd love a return to those days!

What are your thoughts on the competition?

Roweycfc

 

 

11 Jan 2017 12:37:21
I think of all the players Ed mentioned in the Sharkopod the one I'm most excited by us having interest in is Bernadaschi (or however that is spelled haha) seen him play only once or twice ill admit, but he seems to be ideal for that right forward position. Would be great to have an attacking player with a good left foot, and his definitely fits the bill from what I've seen. Seems to have a good shot on him. Really struggling to think of the last one we had. There mush have been someone since Robben, but I'm struggling to recall one.

Anyone seen any more of him than I have that could add to my observations?

Roweycfc

1.) 11 Jan 2017 14:04:24
Bertrand Traore is a left footed attacker with a good shot actually. So I'd prefer giving him a shot.
I haven't seen Bernardeschi play though, and Youtube comps are worthless in assessing a player's level.


2.) 11 Jan 2017 15:13:25
I understand what your saying but I think our approach should be 1st team 11 only now. We have squad depth in every position (Aina, Zouma, Ake, Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek, Fabregas, Willian, Boga, Musonda, Bats, Abrahams etc) .

If we want a WB it should be Alaba/ Aurier, CB Van Dijk, CM Verratti or Bakayoko, Wing Dembele or Greizmann and ST Dybala.

We have a lot of fringe players leaving and being sold in the next 6 months i. e. : Ivanovic, Mikel, Oscar, Terry, Van Ginkle etc we will have the funds to be in for the class of player mentioned above.


3.) 12 Jan 2017 02:54:00
Gotta be honest Jackson, I'm embarrassed to admit, I forgot BT. He's at Ajax this year, right? I haven't really heard much about him, hope he's doing well.

The issue I have with the players that you listed, Zouma, is that none of them are left footed, which other than Bertie, I don't think any of our young forwards who are nearing the age where they may realistically begin getting significant minutes are. That's why I think Bernadeschi could be great. Plus, Griezemann and Dybala going from things ed has said aren't worth holding our breath over, and apart from those guys I'm really struggling to think of a left footed player who is of a level significantly better than what I saw in my (admittedly brief) view of Bernadeschi.


4.) 12 Jan 2017 14:11:36
I agree with Zouma89 on this. We've good depth and great potential in our squad. If we are going to add to it then we should be looking for players at the top of the game.

Great result today! got to be honest I was a little worried for our attacking prospects this season after no real first 11 signings further up the pitch than Kante (who I also didn't realise was so good going forward too! (Also think Bats will come class in a few years, so not complaining about that signing) ), but this change in approach gives us so many options in attack.
We have players everywhere and width I've not seen at Chelsea since Damien Duff. I'm loving it, great to watch!
My only criticism is that the bloody international break has to come now 😂.

Agree the international break has come at the wrong time.

Came at the wrong time last time too, right after 3 wins on the bounce and then we go 3 without a win.

Would the club look to invest the Hazard money in a player in a different position (not asking for names or even position)? I feel like in most of our advertisements he is one of the main players involved in that. Is marketability something the club consider? Sorry if this is not something you want to answer, just curious what sort of thought go into signings. For instance, would the club look to replace Hazard’s marketability (If that’s the right term), if he were to leave with a similar profile player?

Apologies for the boring questions!

Excellent, thanks Ed!

If Hazard does leave would the club look to sign a replacement player in the same position? Or would they they look to Willian, Pulisic and Hudson-Odoi?

{Ed002's Note - The club would like to use Hudson-Odoi but with a bit of luck he will be sold to shut everyone up here.}

Hey Ed, the player to replace Pedro you mentioned is that Pulisic?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

Well hopefully he could force his way in. I love him to bits but Dave has definitely had his worst season with us this year to my mind.

The club is hoping to be able to appeal to CAS to delay the ban?

{Ed002's Note - What?}

Can’t register any new players regardless of their current club is what I (perhaps wrongly) understand.

I’m thinking Hector, Clarke-Salter, possibly Zouma seem more likely. Hopefully not Christensen or Ampadu!

Absolutely disgusted by our so called fans this season booing our own team. If I could make it to the stadium as much as I would like I would definitely do my best to arrange a large banner or something visible for those who seem to be worse affected, just to let them know that most of the fans are still behind them and that we aren’t all such entitled children.

While your (admittedly hilarious) joke was hilarious, Ed, getting the ball hasn’t really been our problem, our issue lies with actually doing something with the thing.

Roweycfc

{Ed0333's Note - 38% possession against Chelsea doesn’t seem like that much mate. But I hear you you’ve had 73% possession overhaul in home games this season.
