Hello Ed's. Hope you're both in great spirits.

Is there any sort of update on our hunt for a potential director or has attention turned elsewhere for the time being? It was a hot topic over the summer, yet it seems that all talk has since disappeared. Strange considering it's a high-profile position at a high-profile club.

{Ed001's Note - sorry mate I don't know, it is not my area at all. I would be sure they will still be working on it.}

Thank you for the response, Ed001. Just to pick your brain, who are the two, three names you’d recommend the club push forward for, for that particular position?

{Ed001's Note - I honestly don't know, it is not really my area at all. I would want to do my research before I put forward any names, not just into potential people but also into exactly what the role entails.}

Afternoon, Ed001 and Ed002. Hope all is well with you two. I enjoy the input that you consistently give on the matters behind the scenes at United, so mind me if I ask about two much-publicised matters regarding Chelsea FC.

First question; is there any update on the Eden Hazard contract situation? I understand he's been talking to the media, and has been honest and upfront. What is the feeling behind the scenes regarding him? Is he just as likely to sign as he is to leave?

Second question; any updates in regards to the sale of the club? There's been plenty of rumours floating about potential buyers, with the two most popular coming in the form of Jim Ratcliffe and Paul Allen. What is the feeling at the club regarding this matter?

Thank you!

RyRyLloyd

{Ed001's Note - impossible to answer the first one as it is a personal choice for him to make.

As far as I am aware there is no intention to sell the club right now.}

Just a quick query for you both, Ed001, and Ed002.

Jose Mourinho. Yes, I am aware he's recently signed a new contract, or at least close to signing a new contract at Manchester United. but from what I can gather, he is still living at the Lowry Hotel, and his wife and children are still living at Chelsea, or close to Chelsea.

Would Mourinho be interested in returning? Would Roman ever be interested in bringing Jose back? I read that Mourinho and Roman shared a meal and a drink after the home fixture this season, so that goes to show that their relationship is in a pretty decent state.

RyRyLloyd

{Ed001's Note - yes and not with the players that are there.}

Interesting. Truth be told, these current crop of player are nothing but poisonous. Their on again, off again mentality to football is nothing short of horrid, I’ll be honest in saying that as soon as the window opens, both Hazard and Courtois are out of the door. Both footballlers who despite being older, still reply on their supposed potential. Both are dubbed to have world class ability, my pale white arse, they aren’t world class. They turn up when they want to and I’m sick of seeing them dragging this club through the dirt.

Ed001, question based on opinion more so than anything else. Do you see Mourinho managing Chelsea for a third term?

{Ed001's Note - in time, probably. The area has become the family's home so it would make sense to him.}


2.) 19 Apr 2018 05:02:06
It would be quite fitting for Mourinho to be Chelsea’s manager in the first game at the revamped Stamford Bridge, whenever that may be.


3.) 19 Apr 2018 20:45:57
Look it’s ended badly twice. I think enough is enough. Why don’t as I saw suggested we go with an up and coming manager and given a brief to build a young team. Aimed at the future. Then we can have a base of 5-6 players and then build round that.


4.) 20 Apr 2018 09:43:38
If Conte is replace, we need to promote Jody Morris potentially to number 2 or along those lines. He has worked wonders with our Youth.

JT, Lamps and Drogba coming back in some form wouldn't go a miss either!

Hello, Ed002. Hope all is well.

You mentioned on the Manchester United page that clubs have spoken with Chelsea regarding Antonio Conte. Care to enlighten us in regards to who these clubs are?


Thank you.

RyRyLloyd

{Ed002's Note - No, I can't help on the Chelsea page.}

Ed001, this isn't a transfer related question per say. a quick question that I'm sure the vast majority of the Chelsea supporters would like to know.

What has changed? This club, in particularly at board level, has changed. We were clear, and concise not too long ago. We knew what we wanted to do and how to go about doing it. why does it seem that a number of people at board level are inept?

RyRyLloyd

{Ed001's Note - they aren't mate, they are simply trying to work within budget limitations that the likes of City don't have to worry about. It is the difference between running as a business which could dip into Roman's pocket to boost it and a business which is having to be self-sustaining.}

Ed002 will probably not respond to us mere mortals on here, so Ed001 mate, do you have any of these 'special treats' for us folks on here that the Arsenal and Liverpool supporters have been receiving? It would be greatly appreciated by us all.

RyRyLloyd

{Ed001's Note - no sorry nothing at the moment.}

Catalan newspaper, Sport, have stated that Luis Enrique is very close to joining Chelsea.

What an utterly miserable appointment this will/ would be. People will point towards his treble winning success with Barca, but truth be told, he had one of the greatest front three to have ever graced the game leading the line for him. The side would have won the treble even with my grandmother in charge.

Opinions on Luis Enrique, ED001, or even Ed002? I can't help but think we'll be looking for a new gaffer this time next year.

RyRyLloyd

{Ed001's Note - I was only talking about him yesterday on Arsenal's site. I am not a fan at all. I was in Spain for 6 months while he was in charge of Barca and so got stuck watching a fair bit of them and his press conferences etc. He did not impress me at all. Maybe he would be in the short term to appease those players who are not with Conte, but longer term he is going to end up the same way. His press conferences were bizarre as well. Head scratching, that would be a good description for them. It just seems an odd choice as he was just another coach benefitting from having a great team gifted to him, rather than a great coach who benefits a team.}


1.) 26 Apr 2018 23:03:34
I doubt very much that we would appoint Enrique and would be disappointed if we did.


 

 

12 Apr 2018 13:52:38
Ed001, or Ed002. What are your thoughts on Luis Enrique as a manager? I can't see how him coming to us is a positive in any way, shape or form.

RyRyLloyd

{Ed001's Note - I found him extremely bizarre when in charge of Barca. He seemed to be holding the players back, and the team winning in spite of his presence, rather than because of him.}


1.) 12 Apr 2018 17:12:21
Thanks for your response, Ed001. Where do you see him ending up? There have been rumours/ reports that we're interested, as well as the likes of PSG, Bayern Munich and Arsenal.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, he has certainly been trying to get a job and getting his name thrown into a few hats. Doesn't seem to be much interest in him from Italy or Spain, so it does seem likely it will England. Depends on who gets sacked in the next few weeks though really!}


2.) 12 Apr 2018 19:14:28
From what I've read and heard, his wage demands are incredibly over the top so can't see anyone below us or Arsenal wanting to pay a massive amount for him. Looking at sides from England and managers who could be let go, the only ones I can think of are Everton and West Ham, also Newcastle if Benitez decides to walk.

{Ed001's Note - only Everton would pay his wages.}

He’s literally just signed a new contract. Not happening.

Appointing a manager just to keep a single player is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read.

Thank you for your response, Ed. The media have really been pushing for the likes of Tuchel, Sarri and Jardim and they could potentially be wrong on all three.

I really, really hope it’s not Enrique. Him, Emery, Blanc, Rodgers etc. are all some very disappointing names.

RyRyLloyd

{Ed001's Note - from what I have seen of Enrique talking, I would not think he would interview well. His comments tend to be extremely bizarre.}

Who are we looking at besides Luis Enrique? Has anyone of interest been in talks with the club?

RyRyLloyd

{Ed001's Note - I don't believe there is any interest in Sarri because of his issues. He has made a number of comments of a racist and sexist nature that would not be tolerated. I should have worded that better, I know he was ruled out and I believe that those issues are why. I hope that makes more sense. Apologies I am very tired and struggling a bit to think clearly.

Allegri was certainly one of the main choices, I believe Ancelotti was ruled out as well as Jardim. I am sorry mate my mind has gone completely blank I know there are others but I can't think who. I was trying to find a quick list of current working managers in Europe to jog my memory but for some reason I can't find one other than ones working in England and I don't know of any working in the English game currently under consideration.}

I'm assuming you're implying that Leciester will soon get rid of Puel, Ed002? I've noticed that you're a massive advocate of Puel over the years. Don't know what to make of him, to be honest. Clearly a very decent manager, what he done with Southampton was great, and Leicester look solid, but something about him really puts me off.

Are there any names discussed for the DoF position, Ed? It seems to have died down recently, with the only named banded about being Zola and Ballack.

RyRyLloyd

{Ed001's Note - I actually thought it was going to be Ballack. That was my understanding.}

If they're going to aim to appoint Sarri through what's legal, and illegal, then we'll be waiting a little while longer yet. and in all probability if we go that route, Sarri won't be in charge by the time the first game of the season rolls around.

People tend to forget that Sarri's targets will more than likely be concentrating solely on the World Cup. Time is running out. and fast.
