Ed002, Mario Pasalic only has a year left on his contract so was wondering if there was any discussions to offer him a new deal or are the club looking to sell him on now? Thanks =].


{Ed002's Note - Pasalic signed a new contract and has gone to Spartak on loan.}

1.) 11 Aug 2017 15:08:31
I must've missed him Joining Spartak on loan. Seems an odd move after 2 successful years at significantly bigger clubs in more competitive leagues.

{Ed002's Note - It was complicated.}

2.) 11 Aug 2017 16:22:50
I won't ask but cheers for the update and new sharkopod, legend.



08 Jun 2017 01:31:13
Ed002, you said Matic is a maybe to leave, so I was just wondering what clubs were interested in him? Thanks =].


{Ed002's Note - Juventus and don't rule out Manchester United.}

1.) 09 Jun 2017 00:43:11
Ed could we possibly use matic in a potential deal for sandro?
Or bonucci

{Ed002's Note - Try not to complicate everything.}

I'm pretty happy with he business done in the January window as we moved on a few players and recouped a nice amount of money. Whilst the summer transfer window is far away, I'm expecting it to be very busy and Conte will have a massive job on his hands imo trying to balance integrating returning loan players whilst replacing and potentially upgrading a few positions.

Definite outs: Costa, Terry.


1.) 02 Feb 2017 08:26:54
I agree with that, not sure costa is definite just yet.

what do you think of musonda?
I think he is very talented but not nearly ready and I don't think we will see him unless we win the league a few matches before the season ends.
kenedy will provide cover and potentially get the chance to impress in the cup imo.
still cannot decide if ake becomes a starter or not

2.) 02 Feb 2017 18:59:33
I pressed post without finishing so just left it there. I haven't seen enough of musonda to know whether he's ready. I don't see him, Ake or kenedy or even Batshuayi getting a game unless we win the league with 3-4 games to spare.

Come the summer though we'll need to try and figure out whether we want to sign a new CB to replace Cahill in the starting 11 or whether Zouma/ Ake/ Christensen will take his spot. And then whether Cahill will want to stay or move on.
We'll probably need a versatile WB preferably RWB.
A new back-up GK to replace Begovic and perhaps a starting GK if Real Madrid come in for Courtois.

CM I feel we're okay but it'll depend on whether Fabregas will want to stay as a bit part player and whether Conte believes he needs someone with a bit more magic than Matic.

Forwards: think we'll see Costa leave so we should target someone versatile who can play either up front or on the wings in the mould of Dybala or Griezmann or failing that i'd go for Aubameyang. Failing that I'd stick with Batshuayi and bring in a backup/ promote a youth player.



10 Dec 2016 02:21:34
Any interest in Ben Gibson or Michael Keane ed002? Thanks =].


{Ed002's Note - Both have been looked at.}

1.) 10 Dec 2016 23:22:44
Is there any chance of christensen of Ake coming back next season as Terry's replacement?



13 Jul 2016 19:19:07
Seen that Jonas Hector's agent approached Chelsea. Any interest from our end ed002? Thanks =].


{Ed002's Note - None.}

I know statistics don’t paint the whole picture but was reading an article on Slysports about Karius and Courtois’ statistics are rather average overall. IF Real cough up enough money and if we could get either Oblak or Alisson, I personally wouldn’t mind letting Courtois go.


1.) 15 Feb 2018 06:32:16
I've said this a few times but i personally don't think he's ever really improved from his Athletico days. He's class on his day but in others he just looks ordinary and concedes easy goals. I wouldn't be too upset to see him leave but i fear we would end up getting someone like Hart as a replacement and really downgrade. Someone like Butland or Oblak as a replacement and i wouldn't mind him leaving. We all know he's going back to spain sooner or later with his family living there so if we can sell him for big money i wouldn't really be against it.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 08:15:47
After his loan spell where there many who actually felt he 'wanted' to return to Chelsea? Throw in a wife and children living elsewhere and communicating via Facetime and telephone is not the life many would want and I cannot see him remaining. He is an excellent keeper but to me not as good as some believe he is and his infuriating play from defence where he causes more issues than we should have is both dangerous and unnecessary. In his prime Cech was better in my opinion.

3.) 15 Feb 2018 10:02:37
Cech was different class. I don’t feel great about Courtois anyway I don’t love him the way I love Hazard. Hazard is Chelsea! But we do need to get Oblak I’m not keen on Butland.

4.) 15 Feb 2018 17:26:00
You guys really underrate Courtouis, he is definatelly a top keeper. Anyway if he was to leave I would take oblak in a heartbeat.

5.) 15 Feb 2018 20:58:02
I thought the PSG keeper last night look decent.

6.) 16 Feb 2018 16:25:07
What about the Milan guy donnamurra.



12 Feb 2018 19:24:43
Is Alonso injured?


1.) 12 Feb 2018 19:44:19
I have suspicions that he may have questioned Conte's tactics lol.

2.) 12 Feb 2018 20:01:16
Come on boys
Fab in midfield 2 bit nervous lol.

3.) 12 Feb 2018 21:14:37
Alonso twisted his ankle in training.



28 Jan 2018 19:48:51
Quick question for one of the Ed’s? Baba Rahman seems to be going on an 18month loan which would see him to the end of his contract so was wondering if there’s a buy clause in the loan deal or something? Surely we’d be able to sell him for some amount of money rather than allow him to rub down his contract? Thanks.


{Ed001's Note - usually that means that the player signs a new contract first.}



17 Jan 2018 23:05:46
We didn’t play well. The subs were bizarre. We’re going to be without Morata and Pedro for a few games but the biggest thing I took from the game was that VAR is beyond a joke. The FA will be shaking their heads after what had been a promising start for VAR up until now.
Slightly unrelated note if any of the Ed’s know: would Chelsea be able to contest Morata’s first yellow? Not that they will but was wondering if it’d be possible?


1.) 17 Jan 2018 23:14:14
Can’t contest a yellow card.

2.) 17 Jan 2018 23:14:37
You can't contest a yellow card. Don't think they is anything anyone can do about it.

3.) 18 Jan 2018 08:28:03
I am a big fan of Morata but his confidence is shot but more importantly he is complaining after every tackle and hitting the ground needlessly and at the moment I see signs of Torres. He is clerly not used to defenders on him straight away and he will either have to adjust or he is going to get less game time if we spend in the summer. Norwich played well albeit we let them and our performance was shocking with many of the first team shown by Amapadu who, who looked very mature for a young kid. Matt Martin summed up Willian nicely, he has everything we need and everything we do not, the downside being he slows play down at the wrong time and has no end product, goals.



07 Jan 2018 13:42:37
Granted it was a poor game and having an extra game is an unneeded distraction but it hardly matters as we’ll likely play the exact same team which will hardly play in the interim. Whilst I don’t wish to bash the players or even Conte but yesterday’s game goes to show what happens when you throw together a bunch of players which have had limited time on the pitch themselves and virtually none together. Yes they’ve been rotated in for a couple games here and there and done alright but that was just one or two playing with the core players. It was hardly unexpected.

Ironic a Liverpool fan finding valuations hilarious when most fans on your page seem to think Salah (if sold in the summer) would be more than £200m 😂😂😂

Depending on the fee we’d get for Courtois, i could see us getting oblak or if not we’d try for Alisson.

Actually he has Italian citizenship now so it shouldn’t be an issue.

I believe it would likely still be an issue as he hasn’t played an internationals since then. However a large transfer fee could bypass it I believe?

Whilst I don’t doubt Real want 2 keepers, I doubt a Kepa would be happy being second choice and I doubt Courtois would be happy being relegated to bench and cup matches after a year or two. So imo it’s one or the other.

Real seem to reluctantly be open to selling Asensio, we should definitely try to get him if we can.

King Frank you have Willian on your bench and as an outgoing player.
In an ideal world:
Ins: With Oblak/ Alisson, Cancelo, Verratti, Asensio/ Bailey/ Pulisic/ Malcolm, Lewandowski/ Dybala/ Icardi
Outs: Courtois, Luiz/ Cahill, Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Willian, Pedro, Morata.
I’d be open to using Batshuayi to get Pulisic.
Apparently Barcelona are willing to let Dembele go out on loan so if we weren’t able to get any of the wingers mentioned or if we lost Hazard I’d be open to getting him.

Plus with Fabregas in a 2 man midfield too. It’s not looking good imo. It would seem like conte wants us to outbarca Barcelona 😂 which could go horrendously wrong if our passing isn’t great (which it has been at times this season)

Apparently Asensio is set to leave so I’d definitely be in for him if we could. Isco would depend on whether Real can get their targets but mostly down to whether Zidane is still in charge imo. Ideally if Hazard were to go we’d get both.

What I don’t understand is last season when we were losing a game, Conte would switch to 4 at the back in order to chase the game. This season as far as I’m aware he hasn’t done so. Instead he’s done pretty much like for like substitutions with perhaps the most attacking sub being Pedro as WB.

We’ve not had a 3rd striker in years. I don’t see the board going for one now of all times xx.
