Looks like Higuaín will soon be signing and should be available for the Arsenal game.


1.) 17 Jan 2019 17:36:34
Would be good to have him on the bench. Think we'll start with a false 9 either way.

2.) 17 Jan 2019 19:09:55

CHO Pedro and HAZARD.

3.) 17 Jan 2019 20:19:37
weely if he won't sign a new contract why would sarri bother having any time for him? cho.

4.) 17 Jan 2019 21:16:49
Pedro, Hazard and CHO would form our best attack, but think Sarri will favour Willian. Especially as both he and Pedro scored last game. Here is to hoping that Higuain brings back the best of Hazard - we need him scoring like he was at the beginning of the season.



13 Jan 2019 13:23:19
It looks like Michy is going on loan to Monaco until the end of the season.

Hope it goes well Michy.


1.) 14 Jan 2019 10:58:52
Like the guy. Hope he does well.



12 Jan 2019 23:09:52
Looks like Higuain is on his way, according to Sky.

My views are well known but I hope I'm wrong.

Welcome to the Mighty Blues Higuain.




08 Jan 2019 22:55:11
Big and maybe some people will say good news just around the corner lads.

Our squad will look so, so different in the next few days!


1.) 08 Jan 2019 23:13:56
eh? what's that tom? don't leave us hanging like that.

2.) 08 Jan 2019 23:15:31
You just being hopeful or.?

3.) 08 Jan 2019 23:22:45
what u heard?

4.) 08 Jan 2019 23:33:55
Spoke to the guy that told me minimum three out and minimum two big signings this window.

He tells me the two in could now be four.

He told me that Sarri is going to be very happy, so I assume one of them is Higuain. I’m not happy because I want Us to keep Morata.

My only concern is the same guy told me JT was going to sign an extension to his contract.

Don’t shoot the messenger lads.

5.) 08 Jan 2019 23:49:39
I hope you’re referring to Icardi, that’d make any manager happy ;)

I’m looking forward to the coming weeks, thanks for the update Tom!

6.) 09 Jan 2019 00:25:38
I think your guy could be right Tim. Some big transfers are around the corner.

Higuain will make a difference. His clearly disinterested at Milan.

7.) 09 Jan 2019 00:44:05
I agree about Morata, I have no doubt he will turn out to be a great striker, such a confidence player . He makes it look easy scoring with his head . He has the natural goal scorers ability to be in the right place to score goals, but has such a lack of confidence in finishing. I would preserver but he obviously wants out, and maybe not a sarri type player. No doubt another one we will have let go too early .
Going by tonight's reports then I assume it will be Higuain, I suppose he will do a better job in the short term, but long term, someone else in the summer .

8.) 09 Jan 2019 07:53:59
I just don't feel Morata could cut it out at a big club due to his fragile mental state. He is so based on confidence and that is probably because of his lack of game time in his career. As a striker you need to sometimes make something happen out of nothing, the amount of times Costa bailed us out when we won the league under Conte is the benchmark in terms of confidence for a top striker. Confidence is massive.

Morata will probably come good at an average team somewhere in the world where there is no pressure or little of it. Obviously at Chelsea you will headline every week. Everyone want to compare you to Drogba or Torres. I am actually confident that he will come good but he don't have the confidence for a big club and his almost 27 soon. I say he will come good because his career at Chelsea started brilliantly. His movement, headers and scoring with his feet were ok. Surely you can't go from being a hero to zero in terms of goals, he has ability.

Good luck to him for the future. Hope it works out for him whoever he plays for and hopefully we can recoup as much money back as possible.

9.) 09 Jan 2019 08:56:17
no not hopefull tom b but wondering wat news you might have pal.



02 Jan 2019 13:04:59
Not sure about this supposed TA transfer.

If he is leaving, I wish him well in his career.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 14:24:59
Who is TA?

2.) 02 Jan 2019 14:54:11
Tammy Abraham i suppose.

3.) 02 Jan 2019 14:57:26

4.) 02 Jan 2019 15:12:58
Never thought he was Chelsea level think he’ll be a very good striker at a lower premier league club or upper championship level.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 15:32:59
Best of luck to him, I do like him but don’t think he’s quite good enough for a top team.

6.) 02 Jan 2019 16:00:11
Tammy Abraham?

7.) 02 Jan 2019 22:33:53
This has got to be a nonsense post - why would we sell for £18m? Why would we sell at all? Nonsense.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 22:34:24
Also, I thought players could only play for 2 teams in a season - he has played for Chels and Villa? Nonsense.

9.) 02 Jan 2019 22:35:35
We’ll never find out now will we as unfortunately we don’t play people who warrant a chance. Instead we play strikers who can’t hit a cows arse with a banjo. Tammy has scored goals consistently and you’re either born a goal scorer or not.
We’re becoming a laughing stock of a club now. I see Juve also want CHO now, meanwhile we’ve signed an American who won’t end up being anywhere near the level of CHO when they both hit their peaks.

I’m writing this whilst watching the game, and yet again Sarriball continues to be boring and non-productive in the attacking phase. I’ll be honest I’m nowhere near impressed as what I thought I would be with Sarri. If plan A doesn’t work he’s got no back up plan. Changes needed at the club!

10.) 02 Jan 2019 23:08:57
I understand the frustrations of posters but let’s keep the faith, look at the positives and hope the second half of the season produces positive results!

Welcome Home Lamps.

You are a legend and I'm sure with everyone's support you will be successful as our manager.



1.) 18 Jun 2019 21:39:20
Where have you seen that confirmed Tom?

2.) 18 Jun 2019 22:09:01
Erm. TomB. don't do that! Tell us.

3.) 20 Jun 2019 10:10:46
I did respond to your post earlier in the week Spizzy. I think it will happen in the next few days.



11 Jun 2019 08:44:03
Gutted that Aina isn't staying with us but I guess it's understandable.

All the best for your future career.


1.) 11 Jun 2019 11:12:11
Also, I will be equally gutted if this Rafa as our manager rumours are true!

2.) 11 Jun 2019 11:54:23
Today’s rumours are Jose keen on return or open to return, Rafa has the job, lamps is clear favourite, Allegri turned us down and Allegri has been taking English lessons and Sarri won’t be confirmed until chelsea find there new man and according to Matt law Chelsea HAVENT requested ban to be frozen as yet.

3.) 11 Jun 2019 11:52:43
I have also seen Mourinho mentioned but who will you prefer between Jose and Rafa Tom?

4.) 11 Jun 2019 12:02:24
Sarri Freeborn.

People who moan about Sarri being predictable should think about how boring and predictable Rafa was.

Jose will always be fondly remembered but he became embarrassing.

So, neither for me thanks.

5.) 11 Jun 2019 13:18:47
At the moment, I will prefer Benitez. Mourinho will always be a serial winner and I respect his achievements at Chelsea but I am guessing that if he's given this team, it will be his normal way of winning winning winning but what happens to the team after 2 seasons? Don't get me wrong, I want a manager that wins but how the team plays matters very much to me. I will prefer a manager (more) that will work with the board (esp at this point when the club has a lot of projects like the stadium), incorporate young players and keep the free flowing football. I also want a manager that plays the 4-3-3 formation (and I believe Benitez does can do the 4-3-3 formation; whereas Mourinho favours the 4-2-3-1 formation) . I really want the free flowing football to continue cos I was really happy with the way Chelsea played against Arsenal (in the Europa league final) .

6.) 11 Jun 2019 14:07:25
Matt law confirming that there's no truth to the Benitez link. Eric Ten Haag os my ideal candidate but who knows. Whoever it will be should be done quickly before the preseason. I think part of the reason why Sarri struggled a bit was cos he never had a proper preseason with the squad.

7.) 11 Jun 2019 14:28:45
If we get Rafa the trolls get what they deserve.

8.) 11 Jun 2019 14:29:51
No rafa no mourinho. Ancelotti is the only manager I would want back. Get lamps and Terry in now and stick with them.

9.) 11 Jun 2019 15:34:08
Mourinho is chelsea through and through id take him back in a heartbeat you could see how much it hurt him the second time we sacked him i would say we are always close to his heart i just want a manager who gives a damn about the club and not their career so for me frank or Jose.

10.) 12 Jun 2019 09:23:10
If Jose is willing to come back knowing that we have a 2 period transfer ban and that we are going to have to play a few youngsters, then I'd welcome him.

11.) 12 Jun 2019 14:54:41
Be interesting to see what mourinho can do with no money. But you know what happens with him. Toys go out the pram and he needs another big pay off. But maybe now hazard has gone it might work out. As much as you lot lived hazard he was a trouble maker. I reckon we will do better without him. And also he wasn't a defender which annoyed boring football jose.



07 Jun 2019 21:42:34
Good luck to Eden. Top player and true professional. Thanks for the memories.

I'm gutted that Reece James appears to have got a bad ankle injury. We are not having much luck with our young stars at the moment but I'm sure they will come back stronger.


1.) 07 Jun 2019 23:08:31
He‘s carried this squad for years.

We’ve had some of his best years.

For me, his a legend!

2.) 08 Jun 2019 00:06:14
Legend alright know one like him for years gutted but all the best Eden you up there with the best.

3.) 08 Jun 2019 00:06:46
Commiserations to RJ, another top talent bites the dust. Hopefully he comes back stronger. m such a shame.



24 May 2019 13:48:53
Over many season I have posted my concerns and anger about our clubs very poor performance and attitude in communicating with our fans.

Today, I would like to applaud The Chelsea Supporters Trust for its statement criticising our clubs lack of communication and help for any fan wishing to travel to next weeks final.

IMO our fans deserve a lot better.


{Ed002's Note - The fans are largely not deserving of anything. It seems someone is whining that the club has not fail to issue a statement of sympathy with the fans - who reasons best known to themselves seem to find organising a little travel as overly difficult.}

1.) 24 May 2019 14:24:47
I think the fans of any club are deserving of consideration and it can’t hurt the club to communicate with its fans.

{Ed002's Note - The club communicate perfectly well, this whining from the little bitches is because Chelsea has not made a statement of sympathy with those pathetic enough not to make their way to the game. Did they whine like this the last time Chelsea or Arsenal played there? No. You are just jumping on the bandwagon to whine more about the club.}

2.) 24 May 2019 14:42:54
No bandwagon for me to jump on. I’ve been complaining about our clubs lack of communication for a long time.

I’m pleased the CST have come out at long last and also criticised the club.

The term “whining little bitches” is something that’s not necessary but we are all entitled to an opinion!

{Ed002's Note - The fans are pathetic and embarrassing with such requests.}

3.) 24 May 2019 14:57:44
An interesting opinion!

4.) 24 May 2019 15:01:14
Ed2 you may not like Chelsea fans hence your decision not to provide info on our page but it is unfair to say they don't deserve effective communication from the club. There are so many uncertainties surrounding our club which IMO is the reason we continuously fall over to you for some info but unfortunately our crime to you is already unforgivable.

{Ed002's Note - The club owe the fans who have abused the coach, the players and the owner absolutely nothing. The fans on this page have spent the season spewing ignorant bile about things they simply don't understand. I don't give any information due the the abuse I get from the vegetables.}

5.) 24 May 2019 16:10:38
Ed2 I understand that some of the fans have abused the coach, players and owner this season which in my opinion is unacceptable. There is no denying that we have a fan base that craves instant success which is comical. We have been spoilt as fans in recent years due to our clubs success.

However, there still remains a very large quantity of fans who are not in the above category and should not be marginalised. Tom is a respected poster on here and I don't think some of your replies to him are completely justified. Anyway have a good day mate.

{Ed002's Note - Pitiful.}

6.) 24 May 2019 16:19:29
Perhaps due to the saying, 'A GOOD PRODUCT SELLS ITSELF', the product that the trader MR. CHELSEA sells is so good that he doesn't need to inform his customers when there's being an upgrade or downgrade to the product.

7.) 24 May 2019 16:20:07
Shak, thanks for your comments.

I’m not affronted or in anyway concerned by the Ed response. It’s just someone’s opinion and they are perfectly entitled to it.

8.) 24 May 2019 17:35:57
Thank God for ed002.

9.) 24 May 2019 19:29:14
Ed02 u sound like a politician making comments about the public when u think your mic is turned off. Any thoughts about taking over from Mrs May, the country could do with some straight talking and actually saying how it is.

{Ed002's Note - Except the Chelsea fans - and I am not a British citizen just yet.}

10.) 25 May 2019 12:19:36
Mr Abramovich, is that you?

11.) 25 May 2019 13:25:45
Kramer. Love it.

12.) 26 May 2019 14:03:56
If Ed002 was an ordinary poster he'd get slated for his negative comments about us fans. My bet he is either a jealous Spurs or Liverpool supporter seething about never having won the Premiership.



21 May 2019 09:20:15
The rumours surrounding Sarri with Lampard replacing him are now so loud I guess there must be an element of truth to them.

The latest one is the club will take the Transfer ban on the chin so as to allow Lampard to integrate some loan players without pressure.

Big Pete as technical director.

Winning the Premiership will be easy!

As I’ve said before this is the time of year we can all have dreams and be super confident.

This is the time of the year when I hope every Chelsea supporter, like you and me Matt, truly believe we win next seasons Premiership.

I also believe, we have to except that it’s unlikely we will ask for the ban to be postponed. If we do that, we are left with opportunities for some of our better loan players being given a chance to stake a claim for first team football.

I think adding them to our current squad and with a better work ethic from every player we will win the Premiership comfortably.
