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.}

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.




30 Dec 2017 19:59:23
Apparently Batshuayi is looking for a loan move in Jan to secure his WC place. Any ideas who you’d want to bring in to replace him? Ideally I’d want us to get Dybala but that’s incredibly unlikely. Or I’d push for Icardi despite his issues. Otherwise I struggle to think of many which would be the required quality. Maybe Celtics Dembele could step up but is a risk.


1.) 30 Dec 2017 20:16:50
Icardi would be the dream, or perhaps we could lure away Lewandowski?

2.) 30 Dec 2017 20:30:12
Lewandowski is a decent shout but probs hellishly expensive given his age.

3.) 30 Dec 2017 20:31:24
We need a premiership ready striker who scores goals. They are few and far between but I would not take a chance on Dembele, could be another Bats. Trouble is these people need game time to establish themselves and we need someone to hit the ground running.
I don’t like him as a person but we could do worse than Giroud. He may as well be our back and win trophies than at Arsenal.

4.) 30 Dec 2017 21:08:17
Icardi is a player who could play alone or with morata, Timo Werner is good player, remember all the fuss about belotti? Seems to be struggling badly since his injury, dzeko is good option maybe?

5.) 30 Dec 2017 21:58:05
My choice would be Vardy.

6.) 30 Dec 2017 22:11:52
Rj28p i have the same feelings would take vardy in the heartbeat.

7.) 30 Dec 2017 23:39:28
Yep, Vardy for me too. Not being cup tied in Europe is a big plus.

8.) 31 Dec 2017 09:05:52
Certainly would not take Giroud as he is painfully slow and we have Morata and Co for the crosses. To hit the ground running with some miles left on their legs, Vardy every time. Quick, reads the through pass very well and knows where the goal is wherever he is standing.

9.) 31 Dec 2017 09:30:36
Batsy is a goalscorer and would of taken both the Morata chances yesterday. He will be another player who leaves and stars for another club. Think Salah etc. I wish Conte would give him a chance.

10.) 31 Dec 2017 11:23:25
G8: We will always disagree on this one. Bats scores goals but is not an out and out goalscorer and is the same age as Kane. Both have served their time and what a difference. Kane is not brilliant but is very good at everything, left and right foot, head, positioning and passing, Bats is none of those and if we could recover our outlay I would be more than happy. Clearly Conte doesn't see anything in him. Happy New Year and here's to locking horns again in 2018.

11.) 31 Dec 2017 11:43:42
He needs game time a loan would be perfect with him, if he plays every game he will score goals. De bruyne wasn't ready for our team and we gave up on him to early. We just need to find a replacement for him who is willing to sit on the bench because it will be impossible to sign some of the players been mentioned in January.



24 Nov 2017 22:24:42
Any idea why the Sharkopods are missing? Can’t seem to find them on YouTube either? Thanks.




01 Nov 2017 04:58:05
I understand the need for rotation but Conte needs to pick a back 3 and stick to it for the next few weeks at least. The constant chopping and changing has definitely been a factor in our sloppiness at the back.




29 Oct 2017 09:22:33
It was a decent game yesterday. Absolutely dominated the first half. The second half was a bit more 50/ 50. We definitely need to start finishing more of our chances in the future to make games more comfortable or we’ll regret it. Given that a few players aren’t 100%, I hope that fluency and domination will come soon.


1.) 29 Oct 2017 12:09:32
I placed a post yesterday that appears under “other posts” on this site.

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.

Although I'll support him if / when he arrives, I'd rather have let him go to Liverpool tbh or just waited and signed him for free next year.

So you would sell 2 players to bring in one, when we're already short on numbers? And the player you want to swap a young striker (who has potential and time on his side) and a very hard working player (who's end product may be lacking but always gives 100%) for, is a striker who's in his 30's and is reliant on his pace to come sit on our bench?
Now if you'd wanted to swap Willian and Batshuayi for Dembele or Dybala or Mbappe, that would make sense but to sell £100m worth of players to bring in a player for £30m makes zero sense at all.

Probs meant €50m which equals £45m.

Actually standard Ed002 has said that Barcelona want rid of Suarez. Whether they’ll find a buyer is another thing but they do want him gone.

It’s probably both the fact that he seems to only want to go to City and his extroadinary wage demands. Granted it’s only newspaper reporting (and we know how accurate they are) but he’s apparently asking for £300,000/ week which would make him our highest paid player. For someone his age whereby an injury could derail his career massively (look at Barcelona wanting rid of Suarez) and the potential upset of players wanting bigger pay bumps, the board have decided it’s probably not worth the hassle of even trying.
Whilst I’m underwhelmed by some of our transfer activity recently, I don’t see the need to upset the already delicate balance within the squad trying for a player that seemingly has his heart set on a different move.

The club generally buy the players with input from Conte (the head coach) . Personally if there is any reticence by the board it would likely be over defensive reinforcements imo. Only because the next coach may wish to play a back 4 which would mean we’d have too many CB’s or any wingbacks we buy might not be great fullbacks etc. Whereas attacking players will generally fit most formations, it would just be whether their qualities/ skills suit the tactics of potential coaches.

Zidane’s done well at Real but no offense to him, he’s not a coach/ tactician. He’s a motivator and simply sends out a team full of world class players and tells em to do whatever they want. I don’t see that working at Chelsea.
