Everyone is saying we should replace Hazard (if he leaves) with Griezmann. Griezmann earns £350,000/ week after tax so. I don’t think the club would match that.
I understand the desire of posters wanting to replace players they feel aren’t up to par but the expectations of some are ridiculous.


1.) 21 Jan 2019 08:31:58
Greizman a striker / CF, hazard a winger, if hazard goes we need a winger / wide forward,

2.) 21 Jan 2019 11:08:55
And why would Griezmann come to Chelsea - a team sinking into mid-table obscurity?

3.) 21 Jan 2019 11:40:58
Don’t see us mid-table! Very strange “supporter” aren’t you MDW?

4.) 21 Jan 2019 15:00:22
CFCAdam, unlike some, I deal in reality - would you seriously consider us 'on the up'? We're losing Hazard and CHO seems determined to leave which leaves us with an ageing side; we are replacing Morata with Higuain - a massive gamble in playing terms and financially; we have seen little real investment in the team since Fabregas and Costa; we have employed an ageing manager who has never won anything in football and who plays our 2 best players out of position. Would any of this entice Griezmann to join us?

5.) 21 Jan 2019 15:26:00
mid table hahahaha.

6.) 21 Jan 2019 16:27:03
in reality. really?!

4th in the league, still in all comps. Not bad in my eyes. Mid-Table finish - Never. Top 4 - yep, united will have a blip. Arsenal too inconsistent to finish top 4.

No investment - Whattt! We spent £57m on Jorginho - who may still be a success. £71m on a potentially world class Keeper. Yet no investment? We've offered Hazard THE biggest contract in the history of the club, not our fault if he wants to go elsewhere. We've (supposedly) offered CHO the biggest contract for an 18 year old, who let's be honest hasn't yet achieved anything in football, but we've offered it to him. We've tied Kante down to a new contract. that's investment too. We've just signed one of the most up and coming talents in Europe in Pulisic, but stupidly let him stay at Dortmund.

Sarri will come good if the players back him, i think the club will and cannot see him going anywhere for 2 years at least. I think you forget that no other club in Italy won anything apart from a very good Juventus side, but his Napoli side pushed them hard.

Formation is down to Sarri yes, that i agree with and hopefully he's not too stubborn to change it. But only a few weeks back we beat City at home, where has that passion gone as the tactics where the same! Also, Kante scored that night and again against Palace and people weren't moaning then. We should have beat Spurs last week but due to lack of a striker - we spent big on Morata, who turns out is a bit of a wimp and not suited to Prem - hardly Sarri's fault. Higuain could be the man we need, scored goals wherever he's gone. The Milan side he's currently in is a poor attacking side, not his fault in the lack of goals.

Have faith man, everyone was raving at start of season, with how we had started etc. Just a dip in form, like we have every season.

Keep the faith.

7.) 21 Jan 2019 16:37:39
Good points Adam.

8.) 21 Jan 2019 22:38:38
Mdw, there's no coming back from Adams post well said adam.

9.) 22 Jan 2019 12:57:22
i don't see higuian missong all the chances morata has in last 12 months and i also don't see him getting disposessed every time he has possession cause he's strong an sturdy and not a big baby like morata throwing himself to the ground every oppertunity an moaning to the refs and let's be honest just looking like an absoloute ejit. shame it didn't work out i liked him bit he's just not mentally strong for pl or physically for that matter.

10.) 22 Jan 2019 20:31:43
gg, oh yes there is a 'coming back' - it's called going to games and seeing how we are declining week on week. We are a demotivated, ageing team that is very obviously not happy with so-called 'Sarriball'. We had a fortunate start to the season (anyone remember the sitters that Arsenal missed against us at home? ) - but since the end of our unbeaten start we have been getting worse and worse (allowing for 1 good performance against City) .

Man United and Arsenal are both on our tails and will overtake us sooner rather than later - which will leave us in 6th - not exactly mid-table perhaps but only because every other team below 6th is ordinary. As for cups, we are in the semi-final of a cup that nobody could give a toss about and we haven't played any team worth mentioning yet in the other 2. But you lot continue along happy, clappy way that I can only attribute to a vast intake of mood altering drugs!

11.) 22 Jan 2019 22:06:34
Ever thought of working for the Samaritans MDW, I am sure u would be an asset.

12.) 23 Jan 2019 09:02:06
mdw u really have a way with words haha.



11 Aug 2017 14:05:31
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.}



02 Feb 2017 00:27:31
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?

We can all clearly see that it’s not been working in recent weeks but yet at the start of the season it was. Now is the change in results a consequence of other teams figuring us out, players being out of form or just them fed up of Sarri’s tactics already. It’s hard to tell from the outside. Sarri definitely needs to start dropping under performing players though.
It does seems like some players have given up on Sarri-ball already though as we’ve never capitulated so badly under other managers before. A clear out of any player that doesn’t buy into the philosophy is required as we need to finally back a manager over players.


{Ed0333's Note - I don’t know about ‘sarri-ball’ Chelsea need to ‘get the ball’ first....I’m available for weddings and bahmitvahs for bookings please call my agent on 0208...

1.) 13 Feb 2019 14:09:34
While your (admittedly hilarious) joke was hilarious, Ed, getting the ball hasn’t really been our problem, our issue lies with actually doing something with the thing.

{Ed0333's Note - 38% possession against Chelsea doesn’t seem like that much mate. But I hear you you’ve had 73% possession overhaul in home games this season.



23 Dec 2018 09:05:03
I’m assuming all the Manchester City fans want Pep Guardiola to be sacked after they lost to Crystal Palace, we should go for him 🤪😂.


1.) 23 Dec 2018 09:44:18
It's the same old negative fans that are over the moon with one win under sarri hyping sarri ball and then call for the sack of the manager after one loss. Don't you guys get fed up of chopping and changing. We have only had Benitez, Mourinho, Hiddink, Conte and Sarri as our manager in the last few years. Give the manager a chance.

There is a lot more to this than sacking the manager. Man City should sack pep now that he has lost 2 games in 3.

2.) 23 Dec 2018 10:03:43
How can Sarri be blamed for the missed opportunities yesterday?

Hazard hit the post when he should have scored?

Alonso hit the post when he should scored?

Hazard missed another chance but that was a decent save from Kasper?

Rudiger missed a bread and butter header from the corner kick?

Willian missed a chance at the start?

Do we blame Sarri for the above? 9n another day it could and should have been 3 or 4 easy.

3.) 23 Dec 2018 10:40:31
Exactly, Shak - we played quite decently and were very unlucky to concede that goal. I do think, however, that a lot of fans - including me - are frustrated with Sarri constantly using players that are having rough patches. However, just because one is frustrated, one has to see the greater picture, and I believe we've been playing more entertainingly than under recent managers and that Sarri simply needs time and perhaps a few more quality players. We should be happy, that for once the club seems more keen to back Sarri with players that he actually wants, so we might be in for a treat in the seasons to come!

4.) 23 Dec 2018 12:44:19
Some posters and fans don’t understand that we have no divine right to win every game.

Can I also add, that the atmosphere in the ground yesterday was not for the first time, ’total rubbish.

I think Sarri will have done very well to win one trophy this season and if we can squeeze into a Champions League spot I will be very happy.

5.) 23 Dec 2018 16:44:38
i love your posts tom u are honest an mature unlike other fans comin on during a game if were losing calling for 16 players to be sold its not fiffa these a real life people who have familys kids etc. its not easy to just say sell um all and buy 16 new players.

6.) 23 Dec 2018 17:34:55
I bet most of the fans that have slated Sarri after yesterday's result didn't even watch the full match. They probably seen the score on final result and decided to slate Sarri and have him sacked.

I can't think of any other reasonable explanation because we actually played well and should have scored 3-4 goals. We can't blame Sarri for missing chances.

7.) 24 Dec 2018 16:18:08
We can blame Sarri for continuously picking the players who miss most of the chances.



19 Sep 2018 17:19:47
Really surprised that Emerson hasn’t travelled with the squad for Europa. I’d have thought this would have been the ideal game to rest Alonso. On the plus side Luiz hasn’t travelled so hopefully Christiansen will get to start, not Cahill. Callum should get some minutes too as Hazard hasn’t travelled either.


1.) 19 Sep 2018 21:36:07
I’m hoping Christiansen ’Cahill and Hudson adoi all start.

2.) 19 Sep 2018 22:26:56
Emerson is apparently injured. When talking about injuries possibly cardiff/ Bournemouth game he said only injuries are Cesc and Emerson,

3.) 20 Sep 2018 00:18:31
He really does seem to suffer with injuries unfortunately.



09 Aug 2018 12:53:01
Moses on the move ed?


{Ed001's Note - possibly yes.}

1.) 09 Aug 2018 14:03:57
Any chance of a replacement, or just going to see a youth step up?

{Ed001's Note - you have changed system, not sure you need to replace him when he has not got a place.}



26 Jul 2018 00:55:18
Apparently Leon Bailey has turned down a move to an English side this summer and will likely stay this year.

PSG have financial constraints, given that it’s reported that Allan is valued at around £80m according to some newspapers, it doesn’t seem likely.

I’d imagine Mason would come in next year and replace RLC as he’ll likely want to leave as he’s way down the pecking order. I don’t really see the need to replace Drinkwater as he’s barely played at all. Can only imagine we’d get both Paredes and Barella if Kovacic wasn’t being signed.

Pulisic plays RW for the most part although he is capable of playing across the front 3.

I’m not saying Bakayoko would do well if he were to come back, but pretty much no one played well last year under Conte and I don’t think used him well as it didn’t seem like he particularly wanted him.

The sticking to the same out of form players is one of his biggest downfalls but the substitutions are a joke. Like for like just won't change a game unless you have a squad like City’s where they can bring on De Bruyne or one of the Silvas etc. Bringing on Barkley or Willian just isn’t going to have the same impact. And I’m sorry but subbing Azpi for Zappacosta is a laughable. Unless Azpi was injured I really don’t see why it was done as Zappacosta hasn’t shown any ability to cross or score goals bar the one or two flukes.

I don’t see Sarri changing formation just to get through the season. It’ll be counterproductive and just confuse the players and they’ll just have to start over again in the summer. I do think he does need a plan B though as simply changing the players but keeping the same system when we’re chasing a game isn’t working.

I still think young players will come to our academy but if they don’t get chances in the team we’ll start to see a lot of CHO situations where they run down their contracts. We have a very successful academy that’s starting to produce very good talents (not all Chelsea standard) but definitley good enough to make a very good career. So youth will still come to build their skill and technique, we just need to push them into the first team.

I’m sure we would have paid the £34m. PSG just likely won the race. It’s not as if a choice between Chelsea and PasG would mean that Paredes would definitely choose Chelsea.
