Ed002, I know you absolutely refuse to do anything chelsea ATM but you did say a few years ago if you did support a team it would be chelsea.

Is there any chance you could provide us with anything? Targets, what you think is going wrong with us at the moment? Anything? We always appreciate your views (well, most of us)

Standard

{Ed002's Note - Sadly it would be a waste of my time - it has been made very clear on here that my input is not wanted.}


1.) 02 Nov 2017 11:06:50
Alright mate understandable. Hope your keeping well!


2.) 02 Nov 2017 13:24:19
We have our fair share of mindless idiots Ed but I hope you have a change of heart.
The vast majority of Chelsea fans are OK. I promise!


3.) 02 Nov 2017 13:30:31
Sorry you feel that way 002, your insight and opinion was always welcomed and appreciated mate.


4.) 02 Nov 2017 15:52:47
If more of us make it clear that your input is indeed very wanted, does that make a difference?


5.) 02 Nov 2017 22:05:13
My reply didn't get posted. Wasn't profane just an opinion. The reason I don't enjoy your input is because you're rude to some posters that don't kiss you rear. The site needs us and not the other way around. You act like you're doing this massive favour by sharing what is only basic research than anyone really could do if they dug deep enough. I used to enjoy some of the banter but that doesn't even exist anymore.

{Ed002's Note - As I said I have no interest in sharing anything with the Chelsea page. I am sure you can do the basic research and provide far better information than I could ever.}


6.) 02 Nov 2017 22:29:12
TomB, there are no mindless idiots here!


7.) 03 Nov 2017 02:39:35
Da dabliner, I've tried to do basic research to grasp onto what ed2 has said about Lukaku, about shaw a couple years ago bonucci ect, I've found nothing. Nothing that matches what ed has told us. Either ed2 is bullshitting (unlikely, as he's pointed out targets to us a few weeks before its hit the rumour mill) or he generally knows things, which I'm backing the latter.

I haven't always agreed with ed2 and you don't have to either, but one thing for sure is that he is absolutely in the know with world football, something I, and many others, can only dream of.


8.) 03 Nov 2017 09:06:46
In as much as Ed02 has been contributing massively on this site, he doesn't appreciate the fans on here. I believe we need one another to be happy here but he usually play God and address curious fans like charlatans which not everyone can endure hence all the insults he gets. Not taking what you throw at others just because have info that we all appreciate you for all the time.
If Ed02 had made up his mind to stay away, so be it but everybody will as always appreciate his contributions if he can be more sensitive. With him the site of course be better off but without him life on here must go on like it has been since stopped or in those times he used to abandon us when needed most, during transfer windows.


9.) 03 Nov 2017 09:28:09
I appreciate the exclusive info we've gotten from the ed 002 ova the years. Yes there's been a few trolls and fans that irritate but hey, that's why our posts are screened right? Like some of us rightly pointed out, there's no point punishing the entire fans on here because of a few. And yes ed 002 i think really likes 4 people to worship her feet or kiss her butt. This site needs us too.

{Ed002's Note - You can stop whining, there will not be anything from me any more as I have explained.}


10.) 03 Nov 2017 10:12:36
Pretty sad to see this amount of hate coming your way ed2, guess I do understand why you don't wanna contribute I absolutely wouldn't.


11.) 03 Nov 2017 12:32:16
Oh by the way chaps we can give da dubliner as much abuse as we want as he doesn't mind, and will continue to give up his free time to provide us all with the information. You don't have to lick his backside.


12.) 03 Nov 2017 13:04:12
I am not very sure how this website works but if Ed002 doesn't want to provide updates anymore then he shouldn't be pressured, maybe another Ed can assigned to the Chelsea fans.
If the desirable isn't available, it is expedient that the available becomes the desirable.


13.) 03 Nov 2017 13:32:09
I stand by my comment that some people on this site are mindless idiots.
Ed has allways tried his utmost to give us his insight into various situations at our club and for that he has, on occasion, suffered unessacary abuse!
I’m sorry that any of the Ed’s or for that matter any contributor to this site suffers abuse.
Let’s debate our different opinions in a constructive way!


14.) 03 Nov 2017 17:11:25
No wonder ed02 doesn't want anything to do with this site. I don't blame him one little bit after hearing from some of the posters on here, don't forget ed02 does this for free and we don't get to see most of the posts written by arrogant spoilt unappreciative immature knuckleheads.

Anyway as its so easy to get the info that ed02 gets then I suggest da dubliner takes over and answers the questions posed. As he knows all the information is available online and readily available can he let us know who Chelsea are looking at to sign in January. Can he also let me know the situation regarding man city and PSG and Chelsea with regard to FFP. I don't know the answers and can't be bothered to look online, as the answers are obviously there . thanks.


15.) 03 Nov 2017 17:53:05
Well said Sid.
Just so you know, if you go onto other clubs rumour sites you CAN find out some useful info that can on the odd occasion relate to Chelsea!


16.) 04 Nov 2017 13:11:03
There are countless times 002 has nailed it.

And why would you get offended by sarcasm? I actually find him funny.

It's a real shame that some people get sensitive and the rest of us miss out.


17.) 07 Nov 2017 22:27:37
Ed02 needs to stop whining tbh. Yes there are a few idiots on here who’s don't appreciate him and ask the same stupid question all the time but that’s only like 3/ 4 people. The rest of the posters don’t do anything wrong . All the other Ed’s deal with those 3/ 4 so why can’t ed002?

{Ed002's Note - because they don’t get the abuse that I get from the trash. And posts like this are simply going to get the page shut down - it is what the rubbish like you want.}


18.) 08 Nov 2017 09:27:29
For god sake.
Just ask the Eds a question, it they don’t want to answer it, just jog on and leave them alone!
It’s not rocket science and it’s not hard!


 

 

02 Nov 2017 07:01:15
although I love Conte and don't think he's decided he's leaving us just yet, I actually really enjoy the merry go round of managers.

It adds a lot of excitement each year and has given us countless successes + many different experiences of football. We've had possession, high press, counter and all sorts.

I think Conte is homesick, yet undecided on his own future. Though I have enjoyed him I wouldn't be too upset at us bringing back Carlo Ancelotti. We played our best ever attacking football under him and enjoyed a great first season and solid second.

Thoughts?

Standard

1.) 02 Nov 2017 07:51:15
Please stay Antonio!


2.) 02 Nov 2017 07:56:42
It works for short periods but I think players know the manager will go before they do so doesn’t help with consistency and young players, really want conte to stay, think top 4 is priority and get back to being organised and good run of results And he stays,


 

 

15 Sep 2017 09:24:15
Hey ed2 mate or ed1 if he's still on sabbatical

Is chelsea interested in Isco at all? He's a classy player and wouldimprove us so much!

Standard

{Ed001's Note - the Isco that has just signed a new long term contract and is Zidane's pet project? It really doesn't matter, so long as Zidane is there it is very unlikely they will let him go, at least right now. Zidane was the one that convinced Madrid to buy him in the first place when no one else at the club thought he was the right choice. Zidane loves him.}


1.) 15 Sep 2017 19:30:46
Standard, asking for Isco would be asking for much, I just want Mateo Kovacic in Chelsea.


2.) 15 Sep 2017 21:04:33
I just remember him being on the fringes not to long ago and maybe remember strong interest in him but I may be wrong. Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - he was and would have been sold but for Zidane, who fought to keep him.}


3.) 16 Sep 2017 04:56:42
Does Chelsea have a spare, 650 million pounds? I think that's his new buyout clause.


4.) 16 Sep 2017 19:41:45
Didn't they offer a swap for Oscar? Said at the time we were mad to turn it down.


 

 

05 Sep 2017 18:57:08
Ed any chance we go after Emre Can? Quality player who would improve our squad.

Standard

{Ed001's Note - I expect him to agree a deal to join Juventus once his contract runs down mate. That would be before Chelsea could agree a move on a free.}


1.) 06 Sep 2017 07:27:34
Cheers mate, last year of his contract right and can't negotiate with English teams in last 6 months but can with overseas teams if I remember correctly what ed2 said!

Big pick up from Juve if it happens.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate. Juve tried to buy him this summer but Liverpool were asking for too much so no deal was agreed.}


2.) 06 Sep 2017 11:12:55
Average player not actually good at anything that stands out.

{Ed001's Note - you've really not watched him play this season then. I will take Juve's judgement over yours, they were willing to offer him guaranteed first team football.}


3.) 06 Sep 2017 12:00:05
Woow! LocoBakayoko if you are talking about Emre Can, I disagree with you. He a very very very very good midfielder and the good thing about him is that he can still improve. It will be a big loss to Liverpool if he left them.


4.) 06 Sep 2017 14:23:40
Can would run chelseas midfield, in the centre you don't have a Better player, I'm wounded he's probably leaving the lads going to be a steal for someone.


5.) 06 Sep 2017 15:22:39
Certainly wouldn't run our midfield. Very good on his day but not consistent enough and certainly has spells in a season where he seems to go missing.

{Ed001's Note - he is still young mate. The only spell he went missing last season was when he was playing through injury as Liverpool were short in midfield.}


6.) 06 Sep 2017 15:57:17
Better than Kante is he John Barnes LOL! Never impressed me.


7.) 06 Sep 2017 18:25:58
Can is an excellent player and I'd love him at Chelsea. He's a very complete player, contributing in both attack and defense. I really wish we could get him on the cheap in January or on a free next summer, but Juve has great allure as well so it seems most probably he'll end up there.
Pool will be losing a very good player.


8.) 06 Sep 2017 18:49:43
Football is all about opinions and sorry but he's never impressed me what is his actual best position. He doesn't have one standout attribute? He's just decent at everything I wmdefknately wouldn't call him complete. I'm not saying he's a bad player but he's nowhere near Kante or even Bakayoko for me.


9.) 06 Sep 2017 22:16:45
Still young ed, yes I'll give you that but defensively he's nowhere near Kante or Bakayoko, can't pick a pass like fabregas and can't grab a game by the scruff of the neck and change it like Eden hazard can. He'd be a quality squad player at Chelsea but don't think he'd even get in our first team.


10.) 07 Sep 2017 06:17:43
Really?


 

 

24 May 2016 07:30:40
Ed2 are we interested in benatia? Was qaulity at Roma and could sort our defence out.

Standard

{Ed002's Note - No but Bayern Munich are going to make Benatia available and the player has declared an interest in a move to Juventus or Chelsea. The interest right now is from Roma and Juventus will only get involved if a particular player leaves. An approach to his agent by another EPL side was rebuffed but they could yet return for discussions.}


1.) 24 May 2016 13:20:00
Which particular players?

{Ed002's Note - One of teh centre backs - but he is not first choice.}


2.) 24 May 2016 15:11:42
Rugani?


3.) 25 May 2016 13:26:44
The centrehalf in question was bonucci.

Bakayoko does not deserve to start against united and Christensen needs to play.

Midfield 3 should be Ampadu Luiz and Drinkwater. Front three Willian Pedro Hazard and defence Alonso Cahill Christensen and Zappacosta.

Courtois
Zappa Cahill Christensen Alonso
Drinkwater Ampadu Luiz
Pedro Hazard Willian.

Standard

1.) 01 Nov 2017 12:05:40
I wouldn't throw Ampadu into our struggling team right now. The senior players need to step up.


2.) 01 Nov 2017 13:05:03
I pick Kenedy ahead of M. Alonso as a wing back. Alonso is a fullback or a left sided central defender. Zappacosta should play more, with a little fine tuning- he has lots of wing back qualities.


3.) 01 Nov 2017 16:56:34
We won't play 433 for sure against anyone not only MU until Conte is Chelsea manager and hopefully he will remain.
I expect that people involved in our transfer activity to be sacked immediately.


 

 

27 Oct 2017 04:02:47
Hey ed002, I was wondering who your top 3 players are that have played the game? Cheers mate.

Standard

{Ed002's Note - "Top" is a subjective word of course Standard and it is hard to compare the players from different eras (e.g. could you sensibly compare Jimmy Greaves against Diego Costa as centre forwards - or would "Messi" be closer to the top than Beckenbauer?). As such, I could see an argument for Messi, Platini and Di Stefano - but I could equally see an argument for Ronaldinho, Yashin and Garincha, but that would be leaving out Pele, Gullit and Socrates.

So I will plump for Ronaldinho, Garincha and Messi - but if you ask again tomorrow the answer will likely be different.}


1.) 27 Oct 2017 10:44:55
Picking only players I’ve seen play. My three would be Greaves, Messi and Moore!


2.) 28 Oct 2017 01:13:05
I would say Ronaldihno, messi and Pele.


3.) 28 Oct 2017 04:43:09
Cheers ed! Will have to look up a couple of them I don't know. What about you, Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - Maradona without a doubt the best I have ever seen. The other 2 I am in the same position as Ed002 and it could be any of a whole slew of players. Right now I would go with Puskas, after watching what footage I could and reading about what he did researching the article on him, I am in awe. The other would be Ronaldo, the real one from Brazil.}


4.) 28 Oct 2017 10:01:54
Interesting, I did read that article on Puskas and was amazed he had scored so many goals.

Cheers guys.

{Ed001's Note - some record he had. Absolutely amazing.}


 

 

21 Oct 2017 15:52:24
Shoutouts to Pedro, Willian, Luiz and Michy they all won us the game. Zappacosta as well.

Fabregas played well as did Cahill. Bakayoko was again poor who on earth said he was an upgrade on matic?!? Hopefully he'll get there though let's push on to next week ktbffh.

Standard

1.) 21 Oct 2017 16:36:59
Think Cahill played quite badly today, actually.


2.) 21 Oct 2017 16:50:20
ho was supposed to be left centre-back when Watford scored that simple 2nd goal - oh of course, it was Cahill.


3.) 21 Oct 2017 16:56:53
I don't understand understand why Cahill is always the scapegoat. Cahill was clearly covering Bakayoko's error and not tracking back.


4.) 21 Oct 2017 17:11:14
Cahill didn't play well. He was completely out of position for the second goal.

THANK GOD for today's result.


5.) 21 Oct 2017 19:26:22
It wasn't Cahill or any of defenders. Bakayoko have lost the ball 3 times during 8 minutes period on 40 yards away from our goal.


6.) 21 Oct 2017 20:16:04
Yea u are right, Bakayoko lost the ball easily.


7.) 22 Oct 2017 09:22:39
Biggest need? Strengthening both defensive and attacking options in midfield. Is Bakayoko fully fit yet? Anyway, I lost count of his errors yesterday.


 

 

15 Oct 2017 01:06:09
Hey ed1, just wondering if you could do a player profile on iniesta? Cheers.

Standard

{Ed001's Note - that would be a pleasure mate. I did do one on him a long time ago, but it is a fair bit out of date now. He is one of my favourite ever players, so any excuse to watch him play is always welcomed!}


1.) 15 Oct 2017 08:33:55
Although I watch a lot of football it is very rarely outside the premier league so I can not say I've seen a full game of iniesta recently. Is he still class?

Cheers mate!

{Ed001's Note - not the level he was no, his performance level has dipped over the last couple of seasons, though he is looking more like his old self so far this, from the little I have seen. Still quality, just not that incredible quality that made Barca tick that he used to be.}


 

 

24 Sep 2017 06:13:42
Accidentally tapped sent when I wasn't finished I'll continue on this post

Not all bad though, Baka was a force off the ball and is a good passer. Morata was great, Willian was not. Hazard showed today how much of an improvement he is on Willian.

The defense I am not convinced about, namely Alonso, while he is a great defender, his weakness seems to be balls played behind him and city next week will exploit that. If we aren't careful, city will roll us over next week.

Champions win them games though and that's exactly what we did. Here's hoping to improvements throughout the team.

Standard

1.) 24 Sep 2017 09:09:06
Was at the game yesterday and yes Stoke could easily have scored a couple but we could have scored another three.
Alonso had a poor game but generally he has been excellent (Spurs away) for us and he can take a wicked free kick.
Willian is now moving into just being a squad player. His effect on games is minimal and now slows our play down!
Christensen looks like a top player. Good defender with lots of composure.
I've been going on for the last few weeks how Morata reminds me of The King. He could be another legend at our club. His first and second goals were class.
Bakayoko looks like a bargain. Physically strong, got a bit of pace and can see a pass.
Next week will be the first test for City and I think AC will do a job on them and WE WILL WIN.


2.) 24 Sep 2017 16:43:24
That second goal of Morata was pure Osgood, as soon as he got the ball he knew exactly what he was going to do and to slot it in from that angle was a player starting to believe in himself. As mentioned elsewhere, the defence is looking very vulnerable, especially on the left, from ball playing teams that get in behind you and our ability to defend crosses is worrying. Goalkeepers and defenders should attack the ball not wait until it reaches them. I feel sorry for Willian, a real trier who gives it everything for little reward and I can see him being the perennial substitute with Musonda making his breakthrough.

Although it's dissapointing, the issues are deeper. Being in 4 completions playing every 3 days with 15 players is never going to work. Players are fatigued and the signings were underwhelming and poor.

Rudiger has not been an improvement, either was Drinkwater or Morata (although he has the potential too, he was a good signing imo)

Zappacosta was a backup buy, someone we sign if all else fails. He was obviously not good enough yet we did give him a chance and he's proven nothing. We don't have a backup left back, or a third striker.

If chelsea still do wish to be a top team, we need to look at our transfer and incoming players policy.

He's been shocking all year. He's sloppy, can't pass and loses the ball 5 times a game. Can honestly not believe people on here were sayinghes an improvement on matic, he's not even an improvement on Chalobah.
