Any info on Drinkwater? Reckon he could go Fulham until the end of the season.


1.) 15 Nov 2018 22:55:55
Given Fulham’s extensive investment in the summer I don’t really see a place for him in their team. Not to say he isn’t better than any of their midfielders but given the outlay they made on those positions I don’t see them loaning in a player for 6 months to play ahead of them.



25 Oct 2018 03:37:16
Koulibaly Ed’s. please tell me there’s a Chance we get him .?


{Ed001's Note - I have not heard of any interest from him in moving on right now. He is very happy at Napoli at the moment.}

1.) 25 Oct 2018 07:59:31
There're some players that I don't bother asking if they are available cos they love their present club more than anything- Koulibaly is one of them. I don't think he wants to ever leave Napoli.

2.) 25 Oct 2018 13:08:41
Koulibaly is one of the best centre backs around, I’d be surprised if he didn’t join united Barcelona Madrid or Juve though. Cheers ed.

{Ed001's Note - he is excellent.}

3.) 25 Oct 2018 17:08:24
Think we would have signed him two years ago if it wasn’t for De Laurentiis because Conte wanted him. Him and Rudiger would be something else together. Luiz is declining and I’m not sure on Christensen. Very good player just don’t think he has the strength for a premier league CB. And Cahill will be leaving soon too.



24 Oct 2018 03:48:46
Ed’s, any updates on the striker front/ new name should being branded about? Or is it the same suspects of mitrovic, Piatek and co

Feel like Morata should move on, the guy needs a fresh start back in Italy.


{Ed001's Note - I haven't heard anything new, not so sure anything will happen in that respect in January.}

1.) 24 Oct 2018 04:19:05
Who do you think would be best suitable for us Ed?

{Ed001's Note - Sarri likes a big point man to lead the line. In a lot of respects Giroud should be perfect but he is not playing too well. There is no real Drogba-esque player out there, which is the problem as that is what you are looking for. The more I think about it and see of him with Fulham, the more I think Mitrovic might be the best option. Though I would personally like to see a slight change in style and use a different style of striker, either a link man, who can then bring the two widemen into play more by giving them more space to attack or an Icardi/Mertens type, who will attack the space himself. We know Sarri had comparative success with that kind of forward, even if it wasn't his choice to play that way, as he bought Milik to replace Mertens up front.}

2.) 24 Oct 2018 06:43:48
Ed001, I had scouted out a few names. I would love if you could tell us which of these strikers would suit our style.

1) Rodrigo Moreno
2) Mauro Icardi
3) Maximiliano Gomez
4) Piatek
5) Nabil Fekir
6) Anthony Martial
7) Marko Arnautovic
8) Alassane Plea
9) Andre Silva
10) Aleksander Mitrovic
11) Paco Alcacer
12) Timo Werner
13) Luka Jovic
14) Ciro Immobile
15) Michy Batshuayi

Thanks in advance, Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - Fekir is not an out and out striker, he would be excellent for a withdrawn role, similar to Firmino for Liverpool.

Mitrovic is the stand out target man, but Arnautovic is a good shout, he is now playing in a way that would suit Sarriball down to the ground. Batshuayi is an odd one, he should suit but his touch seems to vanish in a Chelsea shirt.

Immobile is an interesting one, he could well fit perfectly, but there are times when he is more of a lamppost than a footballer.}

3.) 24 Oct 2018 18:21:11
Thanks, Ed.
Have a good day!

{Ed001's Note - I just had another look at Andre Silva playing and he is defo not the right man for Chelsea imo. Not for the way Sarri is looking to play, he is far too small to hold up the ball.}

4.) 24 Oct 2018 18:40:23
Off the striker subject Ed but have you seen much of Chiesa? What's your thoughts on him? Looks a great prosepct to me.

{Ed001's Note - I have seen him 3 or 4 times this season, though not 100% concentrating on the games. Personally I really like him, and noticed a couple of times when I was glancing at the games that he stood out.}

5.) 24 Oct 2018 20:50:01
Ed001, the other 9 strikers on the list that you didn't talk about - are they a poor fit for our system or have you not watched enough of them?

{Ed001's Note - sorry I should have made that clear initially. I am undecided on Rodrigo, he certainly has something but I need to watch more of him. The rest are not really at their best holding up the ball and bringing others into play. Werner reminds me of a much better version of Loic Remy, in that he is at his best when running onto the ball and looks uncomfortable when he is asked to get involved in the build up. He wants to just burst in behind from outside to in. He would be better in a wider position for Chelsea from what I have seen.
Jovic is the one I have not watched anything like enough of. In fact I can only remember seeing him play once.}

6.) 24 Oct 2018 20:52:55
Think this summer could see a lot of changes Cesc and Cahill on the last years of there contracts moses, Zappa, Drinkwater maybe Morata Giroud and bats moving on also
What I’d like to happen
Mount for Fàbregas
James for Zappa
Cho for Willian providing he obviously signs a new deal
New cb as Luiz is pushing on although would love Ampadu to get his chance before we go and buy anyone have Christensen but if Cahill goes he’ll need replacing he’s been a brilliant signing for us through the years
Rlc I’m not sure he’s all the ability just not the work rate would love to see him as a box to box like he was when he was in the youth team
Anyone know how Jake Clarke Salter and jay da Silva are getting on in there respective loans
Would love any of the Ed’s input or thoughts on players that would improve the team/ squad.

7.) 25 Oct 2018 08:17:11
Thanks, Ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}



07 Oct 2018 02:32:33
Ed001, do you know his interested in Gary Cahill? I’d assume clubs like Everton, west ham ect.


{Ed001's Note - I don't know off the top of my head sorry. I would also suggest teams like Burnley, Leicester and Fulham would be likely to be interested though. All three were looking for another centre half in the summer and none filled that gap (though Fulham tried with players who have failed).}

1.) 07 Oct 2018 04:47:31
Cheers mate.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

2.) 07 Oct 2018 08:27:54
Ed001, any idea about which of our fringe players are most likely to leave? The list of fringe players would include Caballero, Christensen, Cahill, Zappacosta, Emerson, Fabregas, Drinkwater, RLC and Moses.

{Ed001's Note - difficult one to call as a lot will depend on the loan limits that might be being introduced. If they come in, then that changes everything mate.}

3.) 07 Oct 2018 09:44:10
Thanks Ed. Have a great day ahead!

{Ed001's Note - you too mate.}



04 Aug 2018 14:57:52
Hey Ed001, last you heard was there any interest in Oscar from Chelsea? Cheers mate.


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

1.) 04 Aug 2018 17:46:01
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.

Morata with another terrible open Goal miss this morning. Poor guy.


1.) 19 Nov 2018 10:24:06
And you are surprised?

2.) 19 Nov 2018 21:27:55
A bit unfair - on a par with Kane's miss - does that make Kane a crap player?

3.) 20 Nov 2018 03:56:38
What is really a bit unfair is any form of comparison between Kane and Morata.



06 Nov 2018 03:56:56
Hey ed002 hope you’re doing well mate we miss you on this page.


{Ed002's Note - I am fine thanks, and in Chelsea at the moment oddly enough.}

1.) 06 Nov 2018 12:33:25
You’re living the dream there mate, I hope to be doing something similar to yourself in my future (working within football) . Enjoy your stay.



05 Nov 2018 02:36:01
Man city are an incredible team. Absolutely ruthless. Fair play to giordiola, I’ve never given him credit but boy he deserves it.


1.) 05 Nov 2018 05:30:33
Sure Guardiola is a top manager, I feel Manchester City might not be so strong on two fronts this season - I mean the EPL and UCL; if they do well in one, they might struggle in the other, it's just a thought though I could be wrong.



21 Oct 2018 02:11:34
Anyone else want Sarri to wear a suit? Not a fan of the polo shirt lol.


{Ed0333's Note - I’d love for Sarri to wear a suit mate I think he looks like a scruffy sod with his tracksuit but then again Klopp doesn’t look much better. Let’s face it the coolest cat in the Premiership is Pep with his Dsquared threads.

1.) 21 Oct 2018 15:40:12
My big thing about Sarri is he doesn’t stop picking his nose but as was pointed out by a fellow poster, he can pick what he wants if he keeps on winning!



11 Oct 2018 03:51:52
Hey Ed002, it’s been around year and a half since you’ve contributed to the chelsea site because of abuse. I have seen you take many breaks from page so becuase of abuse but never this long.

You said on the Liverpool page a year ago that they offered the most abuse towards you, yet you still offer them information continuously.

Is the abuse on the chelsea site that bad? I’m not having a go at you at all mate I just think it’s a bit unfair for the loyal posters like me that’s been here for 6 years and now get nothing because of a few non-posters.

Gotta respect your decision though.


{Ed002's Note - Yes it is that bad.}

Funny ed001, I remember you and I having a discussion about suso a couple of years ago, we and a couple overs seemed the only people to rate suso. he’s got his plaudits now after playing for Milan. Great player.


{Ed001's Note - lots of people tend to prefer physical players, ones that look big, strong and fast, rather than players like him who are more technical.}

Truly unbelievable how we managed to waste 75 million on them two midfielders. You can say we were unlucky with Bakayoko.

This year we’ve done wonders, the signings have been perfect let’s hope the committee can continue doing well, m‘aybe ed2 could give us a round up or sharkopod, we need her back.

Always thought Willian should play deeper in a midfield three, similar to di Maria but unless he leaves Chelsea we won’t see that happen. Willian is a decent player but not good enough.

London blues, i apologise as I misunderstood what you said. I was a massive fan of Lukaku and wanted him instead of Morata, shame we took too long to bid for him.
