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!

Eden Hazard, what a player, what a performance, what a goal.
I will be sorry if he ever leaves but I will cherish the memories. I will also wish him lots of luck and welcome him back to the bridge anytime.
Big shouts yesterday for RLC who is turning into a beast of a player. Also Jorginho, we could see yesterday what a player he can be.
The Brighton fans are IMO still the best to attend the Bridge this season. The West Ham fans started fighting each other and then the stewards. They are a strange lot the not so happy hammers.


1.) 09 Apr 2019 16:48:53
Agree with everything. Well said.

2.) 09 Apr 2019 19:04:51
Spot on Tom, I think if Hazard does leave for RM then I will follow Him very closely there and will wish him all the luck.

RLC is the future at Chelsea, with him on board we will have good times ahead. Such a quality player. Jorginho has improved massively too, his had a good few games now.

3.) 10 Apr 2019 07:43:52
Would add the Wolves fans too, they were immense.

4.) 10 Apr 2019 09:50:14
I agree RJ, the Wolves fans were very good but they didn’t make me laugh like the Brighton fans did. Maybe that’s because the game against Wolves wasn’t our finest 90 minutes!

Anyway, the scousers have the pleasure of our company this weekend and that’s always fun. I’m sure Gerrard will not be mentioned, haha.

The Liverpool game at our place earlier in the season was one of the best games I’ve seen for a long time, so let’s hope this game is equally as good.

5.) 10 Apr 2019 16:52:11
Quite agree Tom. That was the most completely brilliant performance over 90 mins that I think I've yet seen from Eden, and right up there with that of any player at the Bridge over the many decades since I first went to see the team as a kid. he alone worth the ticket price to see a game when in anything like this mood. Horrible to think we may lose him, but better to have had him, if we lose him, than never to have had him at all!

Also agree about RLC, when fit and focused he's tremendous, a beast of a player indeed and with great skills. And with Barkley improving (only a cameo last night, but nice assist for EH's second), the talent of COH (though a bit up and down yesterday, understandable from a player his age), Emerson having a good game, and Kante just being Kante there was so much to enjoy last night.

Still wasn't quite sure about Jorginho though on last night's performance though I think you may be right that he can yet show us he's a great player. He certainly covered a great deal of ground, yes, and offers a short ball option for other players over much of the pitch plus is moving the ball on more quickly than at times earlier in the season; ie in combination that is his main role in the team perhaps. But would still hope to see a bit more confidence/ accuracy when he attempts incisive forward/ telling/ defence splitting passing. I think he had this in his locker at Napoli so presumably it can come in time at the Bridge. Higuain also obviously not yet at his Napoli best.

But last night produced many moments to enjoy and celebrate, and we could have had many more than the two goals.



17 Mar 2019 17:19:58
Every player has had a good first half but we haven't got the goal our play deserves.

Usually when a team dominates so much but doesn't score it lives to regret it. Let's hope it doesn't happen today!




16 Mar 2019 17:31:52
I'm told Courtois has been dropped by Zidane.

If true. I love it.




08 Mar 2019 15:32:38
The FIFA decision seems strange to me!

If we are found NOT guilty after an appeal we will have severed a transfer ban while being innocent.

I'm sure if that was the case, Chelsea could take legal action against FIFA for loss of earnings!


1.) 08 Mar 2019 18:12:53
I don't think Fifa are bothered by any legal action. I think they are either trying to stamp their authority but obviously unfairly given that the Spanish clubs were treated differently. CAS need to look at this. Disgusting from Fifa.

2.) 08 Mar 2019 18:27:22
Another way to look at it is that the club gambled with this past January transfer window. Some transfer deals could have been done like we did with Christian Pulisic (sign and leave on loan) rather than wait for a ruling that isn't certain under any FIFA law. When the board decided to take the decision (to sign players in the summer rather than the past winter transfer window) that could put us in a mess, I think they should have thought about the flip side.

3.) 09 Mar 2019 00:17:22
We made a mistake and have to pay for it. We’ve been poor in the window for a number of years and haven’t progressed. Maybe now we’ll sign a real DOF and give the club some direction.

4.) 09 Mar 2019 09:32:46
Maybe something happened in this past winter transfer window that I don't know of, but I feel the club should have utilized it more (esp like we did with Pulisic) .



27 Feb 2019 23:44:26
Just got home and I would like to make a few points.

1) Our fans tonight were fantastic and although the Spurs fans constantly chanted the "Y" word (apparently they are allowed) I didn't hear our fans respond at any stage of the match.

2) Other than goal kicks we are not pressing until teams move towards the halfway line. It is giving us a far more solid look in midfield. Well done Sarri for the tactical change.

3) The players have now put in back to back performances that deserve praise. I will not go overboard with the plaudits as we are Chelsea so will probably slip up against Fulham.

4) I'm sure Pedro will deservedly get the MOM, for me it was Kante again. The bloke is different gravy!

Come on my MIGHTY BLUES.


1.) 28 Feb 2019 03:52:22
Nice mix up compared to the last month, glad you got to enjoy it Tom!

2.) 28 Feb 2019 06:02:10
I thought Kovacic as well Tom was class he covered a lot of ground and was pressing really well.

3.) 28 Feb 2019 07:48:12
Well said Tom. I think Pedro is a good shout for the MOTM, however David Luiz was immense. When Luiz has his head on on a job then he is a world beater. Kante, Kovacic, Rudiger and Azpi were all good. Fair play to Alonso did a job.

4.) 28 Feb 2019 10:01:27
Matt 24. I never really enjoy our games against Spurs for some strange reason!

There were fans around me saying beating Spurs is more important than last weekends final. Us fans, are a strange lot.

Just shows how we all see players differently. I think Redan is average. The best youngster I’ve seen in kids football this year is lad from from Utd. I think his name was Greenwood.

Not for me Danny. As fans we all have a tendency to get carried away with our talented youngsters but I do believe we have a future star in Reece James. Anyway, I think we will be selling Aina in the next window.

I think the players we sign will be viewed as top class and therefore expensive. Selling some loan players will IMO go a long way to paying for the investment.

My outs would be Zappa. Cahill (legend) Drinkwater and Giroud. Lots of loan players, like Aina, Musonda, Kennedy, Moses and plenty more! Just can’t see the value but I guess the club has its reasons.

Very strange game with just a few positives and a lot more negatives.

My guess is there will be a lot more twists and turns over the next couple of weeks.

Very sorry to hear that Odoi’s injury might be a bad one.

Eli, IMO we require 76pts. Tomorrow nights game is a must win situation and I have every faith we will succeed.

I mentioned him in the last summer window and I seem to remember the comment was something like he was a lightweight.

I liked the look of him. Can go both ways and quick.
