Ed 001,
Is the Fekir deal unlikely now?


{Ed001's Note - very unlikely now.}

1.) 09 Aug 2018 14:41:43
Chelsea ha hecho una oferta de último momento de 60M€ + variables al #Lyon por el mediocampista francés Nabil Fekir (25). Es muy difícil que suceda, pero hay posibilidades.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 15:07:51
A Journalist stating that Chelsea placed a bid €60m + bonuses. He stated that it would be difficult to get the deal done at this late stage, but if Chelsea have placed such a sizeable offer, we can’t rule anything out.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 15:00:42
I read that too but still will go with ed001 over some south America report.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 15:59:22
ah well i didn't expect it to happen anyway so.

5.) 09 Aug 2018 16:26:44
Remember as long as they get their sale sheet by 5.00pm they have a further two hours to complete everything.

6.) 09 Aug 2018 16:36:51
I still even at this time have a feeling we’ve got a signing to announce 😉 #Robinhomoment.



10 Aug 2017 11:17:34
Ed002, Can you let us know what strikers are we looking to add to our squad this window.


{Ed002's Note - Right now there is little or no efforts being made in terms of an out and out striker as Morata has arrived. Efforts are going elsewhere and we will see what happens with Costa.}

1.) 10 Aug 2017 12:02:30
will costa 100% never play for Chelsea again?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot possibly answer questions like that.}

2.) 10 Aug 2017 12:49:12
prob not @ Aberdeenblue.

3.) 10 Aug 2017 13:22:12
Thank you Ed for your response - as always much appreciated.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 14:33:43
I hope that Costa stays till January.

5.) 10 Aug 2017 15:00:13
sod that. if doesn't want to be at chelsea. give someone a chance who does.

6.) 10 Aug 2017 15:38:40
Agree but if Morata can pick up a few pointers and Costa helping us a bit till Athleti come knocking in January so why not. His attitude stinks but if he can put in a good 6 months.

7.) 10 Aug 2017 22:22:22
Given Contes approach to this situation you see no way back for Acosta however going into the start of the season with only two FWDs doesn't seem sensible either. If genuinely no way back for costs then I would of thought a 3rd FWD would be being lined up.

8.) 10 Aug 2017 22:30:33
What made costa top draw was nothing that can be taught, it was his hunger and character, his strengths were also his weakness,

9.) 11 Aug 2017 01:36:35
i think morata is a completely different player to costa give him time once marata is match fit hel be brilliant linking up with our wingers and midfielders i also think bakayoko will be a power house in midfield with kante. an arsenal fan posted on facebook recently a friend of mine actually asking whos the worse signing morata or lukaku an insane post considering neither have played a league game yet an morata hasn't even started a game for chelsea i hope they both score more than lacazate just so i can ram that post back at him come may next year.



30 Jul 2017 14:30:37
Ed002, Do chelsea have a plan B if hazard was to go next season. Any player / Players in particular we would see as a replacement for Hazard

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot talk about what will happen in a year.}

1.) 30 Jul 2017 14:47:32
Don't fear, mate. We won't sell Eden. Never!

2.) 30 Jul 2017 15:30:04
Dembele (the good one) was mentioned before as a possible replacement.

3.) 30 Jul 2017 18:20:59
Dembelle would be unreal but he's likely to end up at Barcelona.



31 May 2017 09:09:08
Ed002, Any update on the players going out this transfer window.

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - Something like:
Kenneth Omeruo
Marco van Ginkel
Baba Rahman (if fit)
Cesc Fabregas
Juan Cuadrado (gone)
John Terry
Andreas Christensen (complicated and will need a commitment from the club to stay)
Asmir Begovic
Ruben Loftus Cheek (loan)
Dominic Solanke (out of contract)
Mario Pasalic (Milan want him)
Kurt Zouma - cound be on the move on loan or sale
Diego Costa
Christian Atsu
Willian (unlikely)
Michy Batshuayi (possible loan)
Matt Miazga (loan)
Nemanja Matic (maybe)

1.) 31 May 2017 17:40:35
Thank you Ed002,

As always - much appreciated


2.) 31 May 2017 18:08:55
Without putting words into your mouth, Ed: seeing a large number of first team players on that list has me thinking that at least 3 or 4 outfield first team players will be brought in. Is this true?

3.) 31 May 2017 20:34:28
Losing both Zouma and Christensen would be really incredibly stupid in my opinion. Both are some of the best young CBs in the world right now, and they're on our books. If we'd try to buy similar talents from other clubs they'd charge us at least 40 million or something for them.

Hopefully RLC gets a good loan where he'll actually be able to consistently play. And maybe Musonda to get a chance as part of the first team? Here's to hoping.

4.) 31 May 2017 20:41:28
Ed do you think chelsea will start putting buyback clauses on some of the loanees wensell

{Ed025's Note - very much so dazza..

5.) 31 May 2017 21:41:21
Ed what's gunna happen with baker.

{Ed002's Note - No idea.}

6.) 31 May 2017 21:45:24
Hi Ed, I notice you put Costa and Fabregas without any notes - does that mean they're pretty much certain to be going? I knew Cesc was likely but Costa's recent comments seem to suggest he'd only leave to Atletico - is that your expectation?

{Ed002's Note - No, there are no secret messages.}

7.) 01 Jun 2017 02:09:23
possible loan, maybe etc. doesn't mean that any of mentioned players will leave. Personally I don't expect many players to leave especially players who where starters this season.

8.) 01 Jun 2017 05:25:30
From their body language and their interviews I don't think either one of Fabregas or Costa will leave Chelsea.

9.) 01 Jun 2017 18:54:07
Absoloute joke conte isn't planing on integrating crsc to a starting spot. Building the team around him. We're gunna be so flat next year!



01 Feb 2017 08:46:23
Ed, Did Iva make his move to Zenit? and did we try signing dembele


{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

15 Oct 2018 03:57:33
Ed, can you share some light on the bakayoko situation at Milan . Can they terminate the contract based on lack of whatever they say he lacks . and what's you opinion



{Ed002's Note - No, I really have no interest in discussing such matters here.}

1.) 15 Oct 2018 10:30:12
I really respect Bakayoko's exploits at Monaco and Makalele's impact in his Monaco's career; maybe now would also be a good time to give Makalele a call again. I feel Bakayoko can still improve and become the player that everyone expects him to be.

2.) 15 Oct 2018 13:28:01
I think the Milan move has killed off any confidence he had. The club and manager have been very vocal about his poor showings which isn't the best way to help a player. Gattuso is an inexperienced manager and his poor man management is showing, you do not grill a player lacking confidence in public repeated times.



01 Aug 2018 12:35:12
Is there a reason that Chelsea FC wait till the last day to make a move for some of their targets.
is it a strategy which has clubs cornered to make a quick decision rather than make more demands (monetary or otherwise)

i always feel that we wait and wait and wait and then move very close to deadline day which then makes it hard for other clubs to put in a counter bid

fellow posters - what do u guys think?


{Ed018's Note - I have no idea. It drives me nuts}

1.) 01 Aug 2018 22:43:06
Its because we cannot get into a bidding war with other clubs. We simply don't have the resources to get into a bidding war with the likes of City, United, Liverpool, Madrid etc. (I read that somewhere, but cannot for the life of me, remember where! )

2.) 02 Aug 2018 03:06:40
Risky this season with the sellers not needing to sell by our deadline, our deadline being earlier could be very favourable for clubs in other leagues.

3.) 02 Aug 2018 10:19:21
good point there, I was thinking the same

this strategy would leave us in a bit of a bother, i suspect.
7 days to go, we will know soon enuf

CHO is like a new signing for us and hope he can kick off from here.
RLC has to put in a shift or else he would not ever be good enuf for us
RB will be a my pick for this year for Chelsea amongst the usuals.



28 Jul 2018 05:32:01
Ed018, can you confirm the players who could be on the move out of Chelsea

Pedro bakayoko hazard tho willian morata batsuayi Giroud Cahill zouma and if any others.


{Ed018's Note - I can’t confirm, but from that list I’d guess Zouma, maybe Cahill, and maybe either Giroud or Bats.}

1.) 28 Jul 2018 17:09:53
If Zouma leaves it has to be a loan. He's way too talented to give up on already.



21 Jul 2018 05:04:23
Hello ed,
Are Chelsea looking to secure a deal for pogba



{Ed018's Note - he’s been offered to Chelsea but I can’t imagine Chelsea are ready to pay I’m sure the outrageous transfer fee, wages, and agent fees that will come with any deal for Pogba}

1.) 21 Jul 2018 13:53:07
No thanks to that one. I thought he was a waste of money when they bought him. He was someone who Jose desperately wanted. IMO he’s not suited to the premier league. He’s suited to a slower moving game.
We just need to remember what they have palmed us off with in the past, Veron and Falcon to name but two.

2.) 21 Jul 2018 15:41:42
tbh I could see it happen if hazard was to go they will want a big name to replace him and nobody in a Utd shirt really performed well last season.

3.) 21 Jul 2018 16:23:30
Thank you ed for the update.
Agree with Doug, with hazard set to leave, a trio of jorginho Kante and pogba with golovin bakayoko and Barkley as backup would be just amazing. SarriBall is something I'm looking forward to, would be interesting to see who we add and sell this window.


4.) 21 Jul 2018 16:53:11
Surely players get fed up with agents getting in the way of deals and trying to make themselves so much Lindy when your hires to get your client the best deal, I read pjanic agents trying to get him a move yet pjanic wants to stay at Juve. miss players like scholes and Adams who never had agents and would deal with stuff themselves, that said Pogba would be immense next to jorginho and kante. pogba in, hazard captain. Willian and Pedro out, bailey and fekir in, Giroud Athletico and Higuain ( reluctantly ) with Morata and Michy and Courtois out and Donnarumma and cech ( mentor ) in, Drinkwater Bakayoko and Zouma out Rugani in, Loftus Cheek and Barkley to add competition with Cesc for midfield with Europa league and cups, luiz kept around as Sarri will like his style, Cahill I dunno about, that's THE DREAM ANYWAY,

5.) 21 Jul 2018 18:28:34
Don't ask for much do you Matt! Although that would be awesome.

6.) 21 Jul 2018 18:43:48
Haha problem is mate it’s the hope that kills you lol but in all honestly the talk of our midfield and Jorginho and kante. the 3rd person in that needs to be prolific in scoring or assisting. We need goals from midfield which we seriously lacked last year, is Loftus Cheek a goal scorer or Barkley up to it. big question is that final place.

7.) 21 Jul 2018 18:45:35
any idea what's going on with willian? does he want to go. do we want to sell? . he's been extremely professional about it all has willian credit to him.

8.) 21 Jul 2018 19:25:30
Willian - professional. remember that Fa cup win and he covered conte in emoji so he wasn’t in photo,

9.) 22 Jul 2018 06:37:54
Matt - yes we need someone prolific in scoring, maybe Toni Kroos fits the bill.
we all can cut Willian some slack, he has been professional for most parts, hard to be when emotions run high.



03 Jul 2018 04:45:34
Ed, Do Chelsea plan on announcing Saari as our new manager this week, Do u know what the hold up is?
Also, have we reached an agreement with Conte for his departure?
Can you please share as per your knowledge the out goings this summer from our squad



1.) 04 Jul 2018 00:21:26
Honestly mate the only people that know what's going on is Chelsea's board and Napoli's. And even then i don't think they know entirely what's happening. Seems to be problems with Chelsea trying to pay off Conte since they hate him and don't want to give him his money. Seems like they clearly waited to see if another team would take Conte off their hands so they didn't have to pay but obviously Conte wouldn't agree to that. Also don't know why we didn't pay Sarri's release clause to begin with as now it seems things have become a lot more complicated now that ADL can have a say. Personally if i was to guess it'd point to the board always wanting to save money. They knew they'd lose a chunk of money sacking Conte and getting Sarri so they've been trying to find other ways of getting them both sorted without paying all of what's required and in doing so it seems to have backfired massively. But that's just my guess. The only thing that i think will help us is that Napoli have already replaced Sarri so they have no need for him. Obviously they aren't going to let him go for free but hopefully they'll be more flexible in negotiations as i'd expect them to want him out of the club sooner or later and get something from it rather than nothing and keeping him at the club whilst paying his wages to do nothing. I just pray we have this whole managerial position sorted out before pre-season training.

2.) 04 Jul 2018 10:23:13
U are right, your theory is feasible. I read a news article online where Napoli's lawyer said that the only way out is for Chelsea to reach an agreement with Aurelio De laurentis. I think this theory of Napoli not wanting Chelsea to snap up some of their players with release clauses does make sense.

Just my read on the current spending at Chelsea, does the fact that we have canned the plan to build the stadium mean that we have more funds at our disposal . for us to use for contract negotiations or use to get the right players in?

Fellow posters, please share what u make of our transfer business this window, especially.

RLC goes missing during games . is lazy too.
Id put my money on Ross Barkley than RLC at this time.

Think Sarri will give both a hell of a chance to make it big.
Ross to grab his chance

Regarding new signings . Fekir / striker / defender
i think we already look pretty strong

Go Chelsea
