One player unlikely to feature is Danny Drinkwater after he picked up a muscular injury in his calf in training yesterday. Conte says Eden Hazard will be named on the bench again as his recovery continues to be carefully managed.




30 Aug 2017 16:45:31
ed001 any news on potential last day signing?

it seems like Ox wants Liverpool now.
but i wonder why chelsea would bid if they didn't think he wouldn't sign . surely if at all possible they would have discussed it with his agent?


{Ed001's Note - I can't answer why Chelsea bid, he has made no secret of his preference. Unless they were hoping Liverpool were not interested hence no move from them over the weekend?

Only thing that seems likely is Drinkwater.}

1.) 30 Aug 2017 17:29:52
I cannot see us not signing some fullback cover as well as some support for Morata (presumably Llorente)

2.) 30 Aug 2017 17:43:16
players we should be signing - Sandro, Aurier, Sanches and Belloti. Who we're going to end up with - Rafinha, Drinkwater and Llorente. pathetic.

3.) 30 Aug 2017 18:28:53
Aurier is too much trouble hence why PSG want rid. Belotti is so far only really top quality for one season, not worth 100m euros. Sandro has been dealt with at length, Juventus screwed us around a lot and we should remember that for the future. We wanted a loan to buy with Sanches, Bayern wanted a loan with a guarantee of over 40 appearances.

4.) 30 Aug 2017 18:23:11
We pulled it out of the bag last year. Don't loose faith yet!

5.) 30 Aug 2017 18:54:41
sanches is going swansea on loan.

6.) 30 Aug 2017 20:39:17
Emanalo will get blamed again but marina is making us a laughing stock. She is hopeless. Abrahamovich out. He's lost interest.

7.) 30 Aug 2017 20:54:20
abrahamovich out u joker! if it wasnt for him . we wouldn't be where we are today . behave.

8.) 30 Aug 2017 21:21:49
Fonzy are you clinically insane abramovich out
I think that is the stupidest thing anyone has said on this site ever
Even matt martin wouldn't say such a thing.

9.) 30 Aug 2017 21:38:16
It's Fonz's only post. Surprised the eds let it through. Clearly not a chelsea supporter.

10.) 30 Aug 2017 22:39:29
The guy who still goes to every game and loads of youth games? Yeah, clearly lost interest. Try again pal.

11.) 30 Aug 2017 23:27:06
As long as we get a couple of bodies in the only disappointment for me is the players we have let go. I think RLC and Chalobah could have got a lot more game time this season, enough for them to develop and grow with us substantially whilst helping with HG quotas. Hopefully RLC becomes a Thibaut and not a Lukaku!

12.) 31 Aug 2017 00:52:46
I think Belotti is pure, natural, rugged and a quality striker (with quick feet, pace, aerial ability) He has started scoring again this season. He is imo a better goal scorer than Morata. I envy the club that will eventually sign him.
If Mbappe is worth £140mً then Belotti is a bargain for £86m.



14 Aug 2017 14:23:10
Chelsea close in on £35m Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain transfer as Arsene Wenger considers sale according to reports.


1.) 14 Aug 2017 14:31:47
How exciting 😞.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 15:10:05
Would be a good signing in my eyes. Versatile, good engine when fit, pace. Something to prove?

But man I think I need a break from this site. Too much negative crap around because we're not signing Messi, Ronaldo etc. Get a grip lads.

3.) 14 Aug 2017 15:56:36
You're the main one adam.

4.) 14 Aug 2017 16:10:23
What being negative? Where exactly?

5.) 14 Aug 2017 16:17:04
Prem champions signing player who arsenal have let go into last season isn't very exciting. Young English versitile so yeah happy enough for deal but not really exciting. or like a Sandro or van dijk,

6.) 14 Aug 2017 16:22:26
Think you mean Matt Martin is the main one.

I'm not the person getting my knickers in twist because we aren't signing the biggest of names. Or because we lost our first game of the season.

But some people just get depressed over it. It's bloody football at the end of the day.

7.) 14 Aug 2017 16:47:43
how is this rubbish still going round the mill, wenger started him on the weekend and they would rather let his contract run down than sell to us especially at 35 mill, which in this market for a homegrown player is peanuts. If the 'transfer committee' seriously think they have a chance of getting this done then they need to be replaced by someone with tiny bit of logic. Sick of Emmenalo the blokes is clueless.

8.) 14 Aug 2017 18:03:48
CFCAdam. No one on here expects us to be signing Ronaldo or Messi. What we're frustrated about is not signing players (even just squad players) where we clearly need them, especially in midfield. And letting Matic go before we have a replacement (with Bakayoko not yet fit) was just a dumb decision by the club overall. We could have held onto one of our youngsters (loftus cheek, baker) to cover that position until we signed someone at least. That's how I see things anyway.

9.) 14 Aug 2017 18:37:45
35m is far too much for a player in the last year of his contract who will never be anything more than a decent utility player capable of filling in when required.

10.) 14 Aug 2017 18:48:39
Yet we let Petr Cech go to them?

Let's see where AOC is playing football in September.

11.) 14 Aug 2017 19:47:54
The likes of Chamberlain, Drinkwater and Barkley will not make us progress. We'll get torn apart in the champions league with our current wing backs. Desperately need amy two of Cancelo, Aurier, Alex Sandro or Rose. Then maybe we could sign Van Dijk and put Luiz CM.

12.) 14 Aug 2017 20:54:47
Who sells a first team player to a direct rival. That's just pure common sense.

13.) 14 Aug 2017 21:00:36
Didn't Leicester do quite well in the Champs League too and wasn't a certain Danny Drinkwater involved in that run too? Or am i missing the point here?

Barkley - I very much doubt will happen. Ed002 seemed to confirm the same thing.

Chamberlain - Good player in my eyes. Not had a proper run in the Arsenal team with injuries, but when he has played i thought he did ok. Covers a lot of positions too, which is good for us.

Do people expect us to actually challenge for the Champions League? Id be happy to get to the quarters to be honest. Then progress the year after.

Ed002 has already said that we are in talks over Cancelo and Sandro. And club are still confident that something can be agreed with them both.

Why would you put Luiz in the midfield?

14.) 14 Aug 2017 21:22:02
I'm in agreement with bits of all the above posts.
I do think our club could have managed the timing of buying and selling players in a more cohesive way.
Selling players before you have replacements seems niaev but I guess this things don't always happen in a perfect order!
I think Conte can make the Ox a quality wing back in the same way he has with Moses!
I'm not totally convinced we need another CB but if we do go in for one I do like the look of VVD
We do need cover at LWB I would love the lad from Juve but that seems a remote possibility.
Centre Mid is a must have and while I'm not a massive fan of Drinkwater I can see the logic in signing him but I would test PSG and put in a massive bid for Varrati.

{Ed002's Note - Who is this you are talking about? Costa, Matip, Terry, Begovic, Ake?}

15.) 14 Aug 2017 23:04:01
In a perfect transfer world we wouldn't have let Ake go before signing another LWB. We wouldn't have sold Chalaboa and Matic without getting players in the door first albeit Bakayoko was in before Matic left.
The transfer world doesn't work in a perfect for Chelsea way, so we have to work with what we've got in to date!

{Ed002's Note - Ake was not a LWB. Kenedy was and sorted his own exit out. Chalobah insisted he should leave - he was a bit part player who the club wanted to keep but would not give guarantees to.}

16.) 14 Aug 2017 23:14:44
As I say it's not perfect.

17.) 15 Aug 2017 09:37:20
TomB, I agree to your post; From the Community Shield game to the end of the transfer window is atleast 3 EPL fixtures and 1 community shield fixture, 4 games- that's alot.

I know Man-United will wait till the end of the transfer window knowing they will get Matic (just like we might wait to get Ox Chamberlain) cos they don't have much of a choice ( limited good available options in the market) Chelsea could have used Matic (for Arsenal, Burnley, Tottenham and Leceister games) till another midfielder joins before letting him go; OR done it with Chalobah if the coach has certain concerns about Matic not being in his future plans.

I guess we put ourself in a difficult situation and quickly gave ManU the early advantage.


18.) 15 Aug 2017 11:19:54
Fingers crossed obinna!
I find the hyper ventilating of some media sources and in particular the scouser pundits the thing that makes me so angry!
All this Conte sacked, Conte to blame for the Costa situation, Conte has fallen out with the board really dibillatating. I know these guys have a job to do but it is very lazy journalism.

19.) 15 Aug 2017 12:36:08
Haha don't start on me I'm not negative I'm a realist, were in a disaster and conte will be gone soon and transfer window has been embassassing. we are still going to win the champions league 😉.

20.) 15 Aug 2017 14:23:19
No disaster Matt just a slightly muddled transition.
Keep your chins up!

21.) 15 Aug 2017 14:47:27
tomB it's been a disaster, not just with players in or out but also these players are yet to be bought in and work and get used to conte and his style . that's a huge problem, despite Adam ( 🤡) thinking I'm negative and want messi ronaldo blah blah blah it's down to organisation and preparation,

22.) 15 Aug 2017 19:53:07
Who cares if you or anyone else is negative!
Football draws on all the emotions, that's why it's such a fantastic game!
The transfer window isn't perfect and I'm sure the club, if it could, might well have wanted things to work out differently but such is life!
Let's hope for a good result at the weekend.



31 Jul 2017 22:11:08

Chelsea are interested in signing Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater, according to Sky sources.


1.) 31 Jul 2017 22:19:02
LOL never. They got their "sources" from Indykalia from twitter. Its all bull mate. Just like all the negativity on this page at the moment.

2.) 31 Jul 2017 22:29:56
How do people feel about this. I'm gobsmacked.

3.) 31 Jul 2017 22:47:46
Have no idea if there is any substance to the drinkwater rumour but to be fair he's a hard working midfielder. Forced his way into the England squad. Would be a decent squad player IMO.

4.) 31 Jul 2017 22:40:31
Ed please help out. How true is our interest in Drinkwater?

5.) 31 Jul 2017 22:47:46

6.) 31 Jul 2017 23:58:55
Struggled with injuries last season, but was great for Leicester in their title campaign. I don't believe the stories but he'd be a decent enough signing, does everything very well but nothing outstanding.

7.) 01 Aug 2017 01:01:19
sanches all day long as matics replacement.

8.) 01 Aug 2017 02:55:41
Don't think he's good enough at all and would be far too expensive for what he can provide.

9.) 01 Aug 2017 06:19:35
How many more times has people got to say this inc he Ed's buyback a Bakayoko is Matic's replacement. Anybody else coming in replaces Chalobah. This has been said many times before.

10.) 01 Aug 2017 09:52:54
Drinkwater rumour is in all the papers adam. Also you were the one who said sanches was overhyped.

11.) 01 Aug 2017 09:54:19
Why don't Chelsea go in for Thomas Lemar and spend good money on him (it won't be a waste) ; atleast the team becomes more attacking.

12.) 01 Aug 2017 09:54:43
Also adam. Kante and bakayoko can't play every PL game next season let alone CL and domestic cups.

13.) 01 Aug 2017 10:48:45
This strikes me of trying to hit the homegrown quota for your squad - surely no other reason for Chelsea to be in for Drinkwater.

With Chalobah, RLC, Terry and Begovic all homegrown players sold you must be short of the reaching the quota for your squad?

So expect many links to the likes of Drinkwater, AOC and Barkley I think.

14.) 01 Aug 2017 11:20:26
I think Sanches is over hyped so where did I even mention his name in this conversation? Did I say drinkwater was good enough? Nope didn't think I did neither.

15.) 01 Aug 2017 11:34:32
Cfcadam talks sense. Too much negative BS.

Had anyone actually enjoyed being champions?

16.) 01 Aug 2017 12:22:33
Sos to disagree with almost all previous posters - but I think Danny Drinkwater would be a brilliant addition - he has impressed me every time I've seen him play.

17.) 01 Aug 2017 12:24:58
People losing their heads mate. It's pretty obvious that we haven't stopped in the transfer market. Yet all because he media know probably as much as we do, people are going crazy and expecting the club to sign every player going. The media have no idea what's going on and linking us with some absolute trifle all because we do our business behind closed doors.

Matt Martin - I have literally no idea how you get on with life. This is just football. Think we need to pray for Matt. He's going to have a meltdown if we don't sign someone very soon. relegation battlers next season yeah Matt? 😉.

18.) 01 Aug 2017 12:41:25

19.) 01 Aug 2017 12:41:40
Adam check on chelsea page 3. You said "dont see the fuss in sanches he had one good euros then nothing"

20.) 01 Aug 2017 13:01:04
Sanches needs game time, he won't be first choice if he comes to Chelsea. I doubt he'll come.

Ed002 had said that he's been a total flop at Bayern. He was very good against us, but it was a preseason and I think hard to judge on.

He he came I'd be fairly happy, but I'm definitely not losing sleep over it.

We have had clear targets and a plan throughout the summer, have some faith (and some chill)


21.) 01 Aug 2017 13:58:21
Ryan mate. We're talking about Drinkwater here, not Sanches. Others may have mentioned Sanches but not me (on this conversation anyway! ) . I don't see either of them coming. Drinks probably been plucked from a hat. And Sanches was offered to us, as ed002 has already stated.

22.) 01 Aug 2017 14:31:24
No need to pray for me guys, I'm enjoying seeing us not push on, suppose sone of you would be happy if we had another season finishing outside top 4? Hopefully conte doesn't get fed up and leave after 6 months, drinkwater ox llorente 😂😂😂 watch out Madrid Barcelona and Bayern were not finished yet.

23.) 01 aug 2017 17:05:41
guys; after all the analyses, who's chelsea bringing in!?

24.) 01 Aug 2017 17:24:28

Mason Mount has signed a contract until 2021 and joined Vitesse Arnhem on a season-long loan.


1.) 24 Jul 2017 18:40:04
Whilst him signing a new contract is great, I really don't think Vitesse loans have done much for our youth really.

2.) 24 Jul 2017 19:07:30
I think Vitesse is an excellent step for an 18 year old boy that will start his professional career. With Colkett and Mukhtar Ali in midfield they should be able to play some decent stuff.

3.) 24 Jul 2017 20:01:07
Its not good for the players but it gets us extra ffp.

4.) 24 Jul 2017 22:09:57
How is it not good for the player? He's gotten excellent coaching and development at Chelsea and now he gets the chance to start playing professional football.

5.) 25 Jul 2017 10:18:51
Name a few players that have been to vitesse and returned as first teamers then. At best they return to be sold at a profit which helps us buy bigger players.

Shame. He has a bit of class about him!

2.) 28 Sep 2017 20:38:08
Trouble is they are used to being top dogs. They have not moved on, so they lose 3-0 to psg they won't be the only team to lose to psg, but that is an over reaction.
However we didn't treat Carlo too well.

3.) 29 Sep 2017 15:02:34
Since Ancelotti left AC Milan, he's kinda struggled in his second season at every club he's coached. Why's that?

might have lucked out on missing MENDY second injury on his knee now. This one could be lengthy according to reports.
