Ed 002
Would I be right in thinking that Real Madrid are yet to agree a fee with Chelsea for the transfer of Eden Hazard?
Thanks.
T.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - I am not interested in providing blow-by-blow updates - but there was no agreement as of yesterday lunchtime.}


1.) 15 May 2019 09:08:22
Tks so much for the update Ed!


2.) 15 May 2019 20:50:19
Thanks Ed002 much appreciated.

Ed 002
A few questions which I would appreciate your thoughts on.

1.Do you expect Sarri to be the manager next season.
2.Do you think Roman will sell the club this year?
Many thanks.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - The opinion here is I know nothing, get everything I have ever said from Twitter and cause all of the problems with the vegetables. There is zero point in me saying anything.}


1.) 17 Apr 2019 23:00:57
ed please don't stop answering here, you are appreciated by many here and your info is helping us a lot and we thankyou for everything, hope idiots don't ruin it for the ones who enjoy and want to hear what you have to say and info you give 👏.

{Ed002's Note - We can try again next year.}


2.) 17 Apr 2019 23:27:57
Sorry that people think this way Ed, can say for the majority of the users here we really appreciate your efforts and input into the page, frustrating some people keep trying to ruin it for everyone else again. Would be shame to lose you mate but if i had to keep deleting posts everyday i'd lose interest as well.


3.) 18 Apr 2019 02:52:16
The Chelsea page misses out once again. Final post for a bit.


4.) 18 Apr 2019 08:18:49
Yup we're missing out. Shame, as on the United page you can see another great overview of their targets and players looking to leave etc.

But it is what it is. We'll have to wait for stuff to actually happen to know what's going on. Either that or we can believe idiots like Duncan Castles etc But I'd rather not know than believe journalists like him.

Shame, Ed. But hope you're doing well :)


5.) 18 Apr 2019 13:23:51
Well whose doing it then? Surely it’s not the regular posters on this page is it?


6.) 18 Apr 2019 14:54:57
Doesn't make a difference if it's regulars or not. The fact the MODs have to read it, is enough.

If it was me, I'd be doing the same, keeping the info to myself to save from having to read crap.


7.) 18 Apr 2019 19:21:45
I don't even get to see these abusive posts and I'm sick of them. Getting me bored of this page too. I'm sorry for the abuse you receive ed. No one should have to deal with any.

Ed 002
Would you know if the club intend appointing a new Sporting Director any time soon?
Thanks.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer about timescales but they have continued to consider three (realistically two) good options.}


1.) 05 Mar 2019 14:06:44
Would it be possible to say who they are Ed 002?
I am also puzzled why it has taken so long to replace Emenalo do you have any insight into this?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get in to that, particularly when one is employed by another side - it will lead to the Chelsea fans trashing people they know nothing about again. It has taken a long time as the club want the right person and the first person offered the job was not interested.}


2.) 05 Mar 2019 14:26:10
Thanks Ed 002
I am just delighted that they are being so diligent .
But the sooner we have a senior football person involved in our transfer policy the better .


3.) 05 Mar 2019 17:45:28
Good day Ed002.Do you think that the candidates are good ones and how do you think once one is appointed will this affect the club.

{Ed002's Note - 2 are certainly. The other not. I would not expect to see any significant change.}


4.) 05 Mar 2019 18:31:56
Thank you Ed.


5.) 05 Mar 2019 21:44:47
Would ballack be 1 of the 2 ed.


6.) 06 Mar 2019 02:12:46
I’d assume Monchi and Ocampos would be two hopefully I’d like it to be Ballack though.

Eds
A few italian outlets are claiming we are interested in Milans Suso maybe in the New Year which seems a bit unlikely.
Any idea if this is true and do you think he has improved sufficiently since his time at Liverpool to cut it in the PL?
Many thanks.

Turvey

{Ed001's Note - the actual facts are that there has been scouts from Chelsea at a couple of Milan games and the Italian press have decided it was for Suso. I don't know how true it is but Sarri does like him and he plays on the right side, so it would make sense.

As for improving to cut it in the PL, he was good enough, it was Rodgers that was an idiot and ignored him. He has a lovely left peg on him and loved to get stuck in while at Liverpool, not sure how that has changed in Italy but he didn't need to improve, he just needed a manager that gave him a chance. Personally I think he should never have been let go and should have been given more chances. I really liked him at Liverpool, he was incredibly poorly managed.}


1.) 01 Nov 2018 14:28:32
Thanks for that insightful reply Ed 001 much appreciated.
If the £34m euro buy out clause is correct it sounds like a sensible target.

{Ed001's Note - if true he would be a bargain in the current climate. A good manager like Sarri would have him ripping up the Prem with his delivery. His problem was always his size counted against him - he is short and so he was not the typical Prem player. I am not sure about the clauses though, or if it would even be a buyout.}


2.) 01 Nov 2018 14:45:46
Very different these days with the Silvas proving able to cope at City.
The style of play does help them considerably however .
I am delighted to see Sarri improving the younger players like Barclay and RLC .

{Ed001's Note - the problem was Rodgers looked at him as small and weak because he was small. The kid would run around getting stuck in and winning tackles and still Rodgers would rule him out for being small. It was ridiculous.}


3.) 01 Nov 2018 17:05:52
Ed001; you really do rate Suso- He constantly attacks and can press quite a lot too. The player that I want to ask you about is Pulisic, Is Borussia Dortmund looking to sell him in the winter or come next summer? And is Chelsea interested in him?

{Ed001's Note - I like Suso, he was a really nice lad at Liverpool. Pulisic is not one Dortmund are looking to sell right now, though they could probably be tempted by a huge fee or if the lad decides it is time for him to move on.}


4.) 01 Nov 2018 18:00:07
Thanks for the reply.

{Ed001's Note - welcome and Ed002 tells me Suso's release clause has expired during the summer so Milan are likely to look for big money for him as they have a lot of rebuilding they intend to do.}


5.) 01 Nov 2018 18:54:22
I get feeling that they might not get more £45m for him. Thanks to Ed002 too.


6.) 01 Nov 2018 18:58:10
From little I’ve seen I like Suso. insigne, depay Pulisic Suso Zaha asensio, anyone really with the instinct to give and go and run in behind, We need movement and that end product, with Sarri front 3 theere more RF then RW ( imo )


7.) 01 Nov 2018 22:50:52
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.}


8.) 02 Nov 2018 16:44:45
And that notion has lead to a lot of teams missing out on good players whom they- earlier in their careers thought was lightweight.


 

 

25 May 2018 20:34:11
I am hoping the news about Sarri is media nonsense but it appears more and more outlets are going with the narrative.

Turvey

1.) 26 May 2018 00:12:48
It seems true. Rather being negative about it get behind the team.


2.) 26 May 2018 09:11:47
Getting behind the club and team isn’t an issue for me and I’m sure that’s the case with ALL Chelsea supporters.
I feel objective criticism of a players performance, the clubs executive or manager are all, on occasions, valid.


3.) 26 May 2018 15:32:00
I don't think having an opinion about the next manager is negative anymore than questioning the philosophy of those running the club or for that matter commenting on the performance a player as long as it is balanced.
In the case of Sarri one of the Eds has already pointed out a serious downside to the man and he has never won a trophy in his career and he isn't exactly a young manager.

ED 002
Reports in Italy are claiming that Juve are interested in Sarri.
Do you think Sarri will remain at Chelsea next season?
Thanks
T.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - Obviously Sarri would have options if he decides to get away from the awful fan base that has abused him all season.}


1.) 19 May 2019 08:47:44
Agreed ed.


2.) 19 May 2019 08:57:54
Sadly I have to agree with Ed here. The fans have been awful to him. I wouldn't blame him if he wants to go back to Italy.

But I hope he stays. I think it's clear that he's a good coach, and he'd probably do much better in his 2nd season. We'll see what happens, but I fear we'll lose him. And we'll largely have the match-going fans to blame for that.

{Ed002's Note - He is a very good coach as you say.}


3.) 19 May 2019 13:51:59
Do you think the club will cave to the fans' booing so to speak? I imagine the club themselves would prefer to keep him after doing so much work to get him.

I honestly really hope we keep him. Surely common sense will prevail?

{Ed002's Note - The club have no interest in kowtowing to the fans.}


4.) 19 May 2019 14:04:45
Well that's a relief. Truly, it is. Thanks for that, Ed. Fans are fickle, so it'd be dumb to kowtow (that's a new word I learnt) to them.

Much appreciated!


5.) 19 May 2019 14:37:22
I have always had the opinion over the last 10 years that Chelsea fans can be very fickle and quick to judge, but we have always backed our team and manager whilst the game is on. However since Rafa Benitez came I feel that the fans have felt we are too good for certain managers and players. The amount of times I hear “deadwood” on this forum. yet can you imagine them saying that about Dennis wise, or tore Andre Flo. No:. coz talent isn’t everything. Workrate, options from the bench. they are just as important. But some of our fans just want us to spend big money on players, and then immediately when they hit some poor form they want them gone and replaced by a youth player. Until we don’t win the league and then we want a big name player again.

The atmosphere at the bridge hasn’t been very good for midweek games for a few years but now the atmosphere at the league games has got even worse. Against Watford the fans didn’t sing a song until the second half.

It’s such a shame coz I love my club win or lose! We just don’t seem to have respect for ourselves or other teams.


6.) 19 May 2019 14:51:42
Very accurate observations Dave.


7.) 19 May 2019 15:40:01
Well Dave I seem to remember Conte receiving a good level of support even when things were going pear shaped in the 2nd season.
Chelsea has been known for having charasmatic managers for a long while now and Sarri certainly isn't that .
He and for that matter Zola have made zero effort to engage with the fans either home or away.
Its part of the job and by the way does he really need to look and behave like a tramp on the sidelines?

{Ed002's Note - He has been abused verally at games - he is hardly going to "engage" with the vegetables at the games.}


8.) 19 May 2019 15:45:09
Ed2 I couldn't agree more. Sarri is a good coach and the abuse he has received from his own set of fans has been an embarrassment for the rest of us to witness.


9.) 19 May 2019 15:46:29
Dave I 2nd your comments. I was really baffled at the flat at atmosphere at the bridge vs Watford.


10.) 19 May 2019 17:19:36
Turvey, who cares about his personal dress code.

I didn’t want him as our manager but he is and I will support him.

If he leaves I wouldn’t blame him but my guess is some morons will consider him leaving as a victory!


11.) 19 May 2019 18:10:20
I don't get it, majority of our fans were crying to see some attacking football at Chelsea to move away from this defensive dross. As soon as we get a manager and ask him to implement attacking football we moan, we boo him and effectively boot him out because it isn't working out. Nothing working straight away. Klopp, Poch, Pep etc all had time to work with the squad. Obviously the core of fans at the clubs and their difference is huge. Surely Chelsea won't sack Sarri because of the fans. That would be silly.

Where the F is the patience these days? Rome wasn't built in one day. We have some real bunch of Instant success winning fans at the bridge.


12.) 19 May 2019 18:37:07
I agree Shak, the guy has done what was asked of him and that with a completely different style of play and virtually NO pre-season.

He has started playing some of our home grown players and I’m sure their could be more in the squad next season.

We also have fans referring to our players as “deadwood”. It’s all very sad, unpleasant and unnecessary.


13.) 19 May 2019 20:09:51
I'm not a massive Sarri fan but I haven't abused him, or anyone associated with Chelsea, at a game.

Last game I went to was vs. Frankfurt, and the general feel of the ground was very negative towards Sarri. When RLC was subbed, and Sarri was booed, he desperately tried to get the crowed up and stop booing - to absolutely no success.

Why would Sarri do a lap of a appreciation when he's not appreciated by what is realistically 75% of the ground? To be the bigger person? There's not as much pride in that as people let on!


14.) 19 May 2019 20:29:59
Exactly Tom, in my opinion he has had a fantastic season. Not only has he got us 3rd and into the champions league, he has also got us into two cup finals and more importantly he has changed our style of football in doing so. He hashad a great seasonal and rightfully so he won't be short of admirers in Italy from massive clubs.

Chelsea are known for bad press when it comes to sacking managers and this will be another that will create bad press for us. He finishes ahead of Poch and gets two finals and gets chop. It would be terrible.


15.) 20 May 2019 19:11:24
i was at burnley game crap atmosphere booed at full time whistle an d fans abuswd david luiz every time he touched a ball and they did d same the year conte won d league i was at the hull game were ryan mason ended his career every time luiz was on d ball fans abused him strange.

Ed 002
I wondered what you thought of UEFA plans for a revamped CL in 2024 that Agnelli talked about recently .
It sounds more like a league than cup competition that would affect domestic competitions significantly.
Thanks
T.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - It is yet another attempt to placate the "elite" sides who are interested in a breakaway league. There will be further options proposed - FIFA wanting to get involved and extend the Club World Cup - that can bring in some of those nice Chinese Yen. There are also options from the US still being discussed.}

{Ed002's Note - Fine thanks. Nice warm day here.}


2.) 03 Mar 2019 13:34:55
Interesting reply ed2. We look forward in seeing how the rest of the season shapes out.


3.) 03 Mar 2019 15:00:11
Where you at currently?

{Ed002's Note - Tel Aviv.}


4.) 03 Mar 2019 16:45:44
Supposedly to be amazing there Ed 😁 hope you’re having a good time
Don’t suppose you feel like sharing the other issue 😜.

{Ed002's Note - I am here roughly half my time for a couple of years.}


5.) 03 Mar 2019 17:31:16
Hi Ed002; guess you are having a good time in Tel Aviv? travelling around the world and seeing lots of cities must be fun indeed, I envy you on that one. Cheers man.

{Ed002's Note - I am here because of work.}


6.) 03 Mar 2019 18:50:22

22 Feb 2019 10:07:24
ED 002
We will presumably be appealing the ban and if that is the case would we still be able to sign any players this summer?
Thanks.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - Yes it was always planned to appeal.}


1.) 22 Feb 2019 10:30:10
I think we should embrace the positives of the 2 window transfer ban - still allow players to leave but replace them with our homegrown youth: Aina, Abraham, Tomori, Dasilva, CHO, James, Palmer, Lewis-Baker, Mount, Brown, even Bakayoko.

Yes, we might struggle to make top 4 - and the difference to this season or last season is .?


2.) 22 Feb 2019 10:32:39
Do you think an appeal would stand any realistic chance of being upheld Ed002?
Seems a lot of cases for one to have not contravened the regulations at least.
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I knew of one major issue but am told there are two - the rest is noise and generally an FA issue that could hit numerous sides. The appeal will be to push any ban back a few months.}


3.) 22 Feb 2019 10:43:06
Yeah that’s the dream but there not all good enough . Imagine these players up against the best in Europe, sterling aguero salahs vvd, appeal the ban have the sumner to invest and interstate youth more now ready for the ban.


4.) 22 Feb 2019 20:35:05
MattM, the thing is we won't know whether they're good enough until we give them an extended run in the team. I do agree that it may be a bit early for some (Mount, Dasilva, Palmer) but I think CHO, Aina, James, Tomori and Abraham are ready to step up (and I think we should be giving Bakayoko another chance) .


 

 

16 Feb 2019 16:59:19
Ed 001
I am wondering what your opinion of Sarri and Jorghino is currently?
For the record I think its clear he can't or won't adapt his approach to the PL and is prepared to play Jorghino as a matter of priciple rather than form.

Turvey

{Ed001's Note - unless he is prepared to compromise he will fail. Both Pep and Klopp have had to do so. Every league is unique, to succeed you have to adapt to its unique demands and, so far, Sarri is showing no signs of doing so. It is all up to him now. He will succeed or fail by his choices.}


1.) 16 Feb 2019 21:12:53
Ed001, that's the most sensible assessment that I've read.

{Ed001's Note - thank you Mrs D.}


2.) 17 Feb 2019 01:22:42
Failed he should of already worked out the problems if people like us know what the problem is and he hasn’t he’s not good enough and am dreading Monday night and I thought I would never say that about united this season how time moves on.

{Ed001's Note - but you have probably spent more time thinking about it than him, as you will have had years closely watching the Prem, while Sarri has been busy working in Serie A.}


3.) 17 Feb 2019 10:49:44
Nibby, you're spot-on about dreading Monday - moi aussi. We might raise our game as we did against Man City at home but that will be just papering over the cracks. I'm even more concerned about how embarrassing next weekend's Final could be.

SON.


4.) 17 Feb 2019 11:47:24
I’m looking forward to the Utd and City games and I fully expect us to win both.


5.) 17 Feb 2019 15:49:40
TomB, thanks for brightening up my Sunday - I needed that belly-laugh!


6.) 17 Feb 2019 17:46:00
Anything to oblige the prophets of doom.


7.) 17 Feb 2019 19:58:42
Mrs Drogba, are you actually a Chelsea fan? Just scrolled through this page and every time I see your name its about sacking the manager or laughing at another fans optimism about winning games.

Why not try and be positive for a change? Might help you get through your days.


8.) 17 Feb 2019 20:40:46
Blue, we all see things in different ways and I guess that’s what makes a good banter site.

Mrs Costa is not alone. Some supporters refer to our players as “deadwood” or worse. One poster insists that Sarri’s supposed shortcomings are to do with his age.

I will remain a happy supporter of our MIGHTY BLUES. I will always remember the dark pre-Roman days, so every season we have when are competitive at the very least is a bonus I cherish.


9.) 17 Feb 2019 22:44:11
I am extremely positive every time that I read / hear that we are going after Zidane to replace Sarri. As for upcoming games, I really haven't seen anything to be optimistic about since CHO in the pre-season friendlies.

{Ed002's Note - Seen coming out of Fulham Broadway station 3 weeks ago.}


10.) 18 Feb 2019 11:35:51
Ed haha.


11.) 18 Feb 2019 13:27:26
Klopp seen in the West End of London supposedly having an estimate for teeth cleaning, could be a lot of money!

I think it’s cover for the Chelsea job. NOT.

The trick with Morata is to play to his strengths which Simeone is smart enough to do unlike our current manager .
