Hey Ed001, last you heard was there any interest in Oscar from Chelsea? Cheers mate.


{Ed001's Note - not that I am aware of.}

Is it the Summer of 2012 again? When are we signing Hulk?

2.) 04 Aug 2018 21:33:09
Ah the summer of 2012! What a summer it was celebrating being the CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE and signing the one and only Eden Hazard! Not a bad summer to be a Chelsea fan.



27 Jul 2018 14:28:04
Jordan Pickford our new number 1 transfer target. Hopefully the deal goes through aslong as the price isn’t astronomical. Real good keeper.


1.) 27 Jul 2018 16:34:39
what would u call a fair price, am an everton fan like just wondering from the buying teams point of view what would u expect to pay?

2.) 27 Jul 2018 16:42:03
Everton paid £30 million for him, you would imagine it would take a lot to pursuade them to sell, £60 million? Even then I’m not sure they will sell.

3.) 27 Jul 2018 17:16:17
i think 60 would be a starting point, as u say we paid 30 and he's gone on to improve massively and becoming england no1, as a blue I wouldn't like him gone at all but would hope we held out for closer to 70 knowing u wer willing to part with 65 for Allison, the same Allison who conceded 7 past Liverpool last year.

4.) 27 Jul 2018 19:19:52
Chelsea were not willing to pay 65m for Allison hence why we never made an offer!
Pickford is extremely overrated, he made a few decent saves during the World Cup and the British media have hyped him up into some world beater.
He is of nowhere near the quality to replace a keeper like Courtois . Anything over 40m would be paying well over the odds!

5.) 27 Jul 2018 19:58:52
Agree with superfrank. I’d say he’s worth £40m max but given he’s English you’ll probs have to tag an extra £10m on it.

6.) 27 Jul 2018 20:37:13
Whilst I believe he would be an awesome signing I don't think we should spend more than £40m on him. I understand why Everton wouldn't sell for anything less than £60/ 70m though because that is what he must be worth to them.

7.) 27 Jul 2018 21:30:34
Forget Pickford, after the fiascos of dealing with Everton in the past. I would never deal with them again. Don’t forget the lukaku saga.
Go for Butland stoke will sell and not mess us around.

8.) 27 Jul 2018 21:57:16
I know it's unlikely as Ed often says player swaps don't happen that often in football but I'm sure there are a few of our fringe players that they might consider taking off our hands helping to reduce the price and sweeten the deal. If there's any Everton fans reading this would that be acceptable to you? Possibly players such as Bakayoko, Drinkwater, Zappacosta/ Moses?

9.) 27 Jul 2018 22:56:38
swim, I like what your thinking but not those players . maybe take cash plus michy and maybe RLC on 2 year loan? that would soften the blow and maybe throw a Cahill in to really sweeten the deal haha.

10.) 28 Jul 2018 00:23:26
As far as player swaps go, with tbo wanting to go to Madrid I'm really surprised I haven't seen tbo + cash for oblak explored? Was it and AM weren't interested? Seems the best possible outcome for Chelsea. With the added bonus Madrid then have to go for loris or preferably ddg, everyones a winner!

11.) 28 Jul 2018 07:12:35
Yeah I mentioned that myself before Eden, that would be an awesome deal for us and I'm sure Atleti would be open to it as well as they'd be getting a very good keeper plus money. Shame it doesn't work like that though : (.



05 Jul 2018 07:48:16
So Conte has prepared a preseason and also sent an email to the players letting them know he’s still the boss and that training begins next week.

Good on him. The club is a shambles right now. All the divas can leave I don’t care, it’s so hard to be positive right now.


1.) 05 Jul 2018 08:25:48
If that is the case then all credit to someone who is still acting like a professional should. Whatever the final outcome Conte did well for us under what was clearly difficult circumstances after he asked for a transfer support and did not appear to get what he wanted and now he 'might' see a successor get given exactly that.

2.) 05 Jul 2018 10:27:09
From what I’ve gathered Conte did get quite a few of his targets last year. He wanted Morata and Zappacosta. Granted he’d have rather kept Matic but Matic wanted to leave. The club tried hard to get Alex Sandro and Kouliaby. Drinkwater was added due to his previous partnership with Kante and his HG status. Whilst I understand all of our disappointment in last years transfer window, the club aren’t the complete mess some seem to paint it as.

This summer hasn’t been great but we all expected that Conte would be in demand and would jump straight into another job. The fact that no-one has offered him one or that he’s turned them down has thrown a spanner in the works. Are we slightly behind the ball now in regards to transfers? Maybe but I’m also not going to slate the club when there’s quite a lot to deal with this summer and the window has barely opened.

3.) 05 Jul 2018 10:54:47
I was never convinced that Conte had a say in any player we bought other than he had positions that needed strengthening. Highly unlikely Drinkwater or Barkley and possibly Giroud were on his radar although the latter can prove useful. Given the rumours surrounding his departure he is unlikely to show much interest in any approaches as it will jeopodise any severance him and the team are due; I doubt he will have 'any' trouble finding another top role when this scenario is played out.

4.) 05 Jul 2018 23:38:22
One of the Ed’s mentioned that it was Conte that wanted Morata. I said that it wasn’t likely he chose Drinkwater but then again imo Drinkwater and Barkley were both bought to fill squad places as Conte wanted players but we were restricted in regards to our Home grown quota. Maybe I’m wrong but that’s how I see it.



30 May 2018 23:31:29
Hey ed001,

Icardi? Heard anything?


{Ed001's Note - only that his wife, Wanda, is pushing for a move for him but she is incredibly difficult to deal with. She has been touting him around Europe.}



21 May 2018 00:43:03
Eden Hazard has been the utmost professional for Chelsea and whilst people on here have painted him as the culprit of undermining managers, there has been zero proof this has been the case.

Contrastingly, Willian, who people said was better than hazard a couple months ago, has now in an interview laughed at his relationship with Conte and also put trophies emojis over him to block him out of the fa cup win. Talk about petty, Willian and Diego costa have now both done it.

Embarrassing for Willian, should be sold.


1.) 21 May 2018 07:53:50
Willian has embarrassed himself, and is only trying to get his move to united to play under Jose, id sell him but not to United,

2.) 21 May 2018 11:14:46
Not me, I'm a diehard lover of Eden Hazard any day, anytime, anywhere I love everything about him and everything he does (Sometimes I even see him in my dreams) .
Willian very good but I have my reservations about him. If the club wants to sell Willian and Pedro- to bring in Leon Bailey and N. Fekir, I will be very happy. Hazard for me untouchable (absolutely) . Whoever says that Willian is better than Hazard watches football upside down.

3.) 21 May 2018 16:46:35
the posts were really embarrassing at the time. Willian outperforms hazard for a month and suddenly hazard is ‘never world class, Willian is better ect’

People need to understand systems make players, were seeing Salah thrive in a Liverpool system. He was good at Roma, but at Liverpool it suits him to a t. He’s not made massive strides this year, he’s still the same player, he’s just in a system where he’s world class.

I still strongly believe, you put hazard in an attacking side with a Sandro or Marcelo behind him, you have one of the best players in world football. 100%.

All opinions of course, hopefully I don’t get called ‘the worst type of bias fan’ again lol.

Lukaku has already equaled drogba’s goal tally at the age of 25 . oh my.


1.) 04 Sep 2018 08:13:53
Lukaku is a fantastic player and yes he has the same amount of goals as Drogba but the difference is Drogba was a big game player a lot of his goals came in big big games not to mention a certain night in Munich, fa cup final goals, every time we went to Wembley he seem to score. Yes Lukaku has the same amount of goals but he is no where near the player the great man was.

2.) 04 Sep 2018 14:39:49
I guess that just shows how rubbish statistics can be when comparing players.

Drogba different class to Lukaku in my opinion!

3.) 04 Sep 2018 18:46:35
Think frog has more goals v arsenal than Lukaku does v top 6, missing v spurs then couple v burn out Europa league hungover Burnley. stat paddler, I like him but don’t want him compared to the king, the man who turned up st almost every big game we had.

4.) 05 Sep 2018 09:43:37
Lukaku is an awesome player but comparing his to Drogba? Don't make me laugh!



19 Aug 2018 07:21:06
Ed2 what will it take for you to contribute mate? We’ve had poems, we’ve had conspiracies we’ve had fan pages. What else can we do.


{Ed002's Note - Zero chance again right now. Constant abuse.}

1.) 19 Aug 2018 12:04:12
Awful to hear there's still abuse. Don't blame you for not coming back Ed but I love following your work on the other pages.



18 Aug 2018 18:20:02
For all this fancy football we’re getting we should be 5-2 down. The spaces behind Azpilicueta and Alonso are incredible.




18 Aug 2018 16:57:54
Callum Hudson-Odoi suffering the usual fate, best player of all preseason and then shunned to the side for bigger names.

What do these guys need to do to get a chance. Play them while their confidence is hot.




17 Aug 2018 04:47:06
Right now we’ve got three right backs in Azpilicueta Moses and Zappa, ed1 who do you expect to leave or do you think we’ll keep all three and use Moses in wing more? Cheers mate.


{Ed001's Note - I expect Moses to be used in more forward areas, if at all. Dave is now first choice right back.}

1.) 17 Aug 2018 07:49:26
I do love Moses but the more game time he gets further up the pitch the less Hudson Odoi will be getting. He's shown he can play against Bellerin and Walker who are meant to be bloody good right backs so I hope we can see more against weaker opposition rather than a converted wing back converted back to winger lol.

1. We are building a squad, it doesn’t have to be like Madrid or Barcelona it will be chelsea. The board will asses players who have resale value/ or provide good value for the club on and off.

2. Real Madrid would love to add Hazard but Chelsea Obviously want to keep him. They will do their best.

3. No, you’ll hear if there is.

4. Out currently will Be Drinkwater, Moses, maybe Zappacosta and Cahill. That will change.

5. Can’t help on that one but on WAGNH they have an article about it

6. Again, you’ll hear if their is investors in the stadium. It will be a length process I believe.

Lukaku made some enemies? Since when? Never heard anything of the sort.

The reason he didn’t return was because we didn’t bid for him to try get Everton to take their price down. United bid for him and made him feel wanted and once we matched Their bid it was too late.

since when can they talk to our player and agree terms without agreeing a transfer fee?

Diego costa wanted to leave. Lukaku was the real one we missed on. Sorry to keep bringing it up with the absolute denial from Chelsea fans when we dithered around and he chose united was incredible. We missed out on a top premier league striker and got Morata and Bakayoko which the people on here said were ‘upgrades’ on Clsta and Matic. Incredible.

Eden Hazard finally getting some recognition. He’s a better player than Neymar, maybe the 1’s on here will start to realise.

20 Aug 2018 15:47:46
I think totally I ppposite to you guys, he looks clumsy on the ball but he’s a composed passer and sprays cross field passes well. He’s more composed on the ball than Azpilicueta.

Never seen Fekir, is he an improvement on the wingers we currently have?
