Ed with reports bakayoko had a good season in Milan could you see him playing for Chelsea next season.

gianfranco gola

{Ed002's Note - No, that is not the plan.}

1.) 21 May 2019 16:47:12
What if Sarri is the one that decides to leave, What does that make him?



23 Jan 2019 16:35:42
has the barella transfer fallen through as the rumours seemed to have died ed and do you expect anymore signings this month higuin i suppose.

gianfranco gola

{Ed002's Note - I would doubt Barella will be moving this month but there will be further incomings and outgoings this month. Later today or perhaps tomorrow the club will confirm another outgoing.}

1.) 23 Jan 2019 17:18:55
Thanks for the insight ed!

2.) 23 Jan 2019 17:42:00
Its been long ed2, nice seeing you reply. Hope you are well mate.

{Ed002's Note - I worry when people tell me how "long" it is.}

3.) 23 Jan 2019 17:42:33
Always nice to see you reply ed,

4.) 23 Jan 2019 17:49:30
Eeedd002.Your the man! Thank you.

5.) 23 Jan 2019 17:54:40
Sweet, thanks Ed002. Moses by any chance?

{Ed002's Note - As a special treat, Moses is gone subject to paperwork. Itr is a bit of a pity and I hope he returns to the English game - the worst ever childhood and what a nice and humble guy. And he is always there to help and support others.}

6.) 23 Jan 2019 17:59:08
edd on a personal view i hope your input can be given more again without being abused by a certain few idiots and hope u are well mate great to see you posting input here again i mean that honestpy.

{Ed002's Note - There is no plan to do that right now Shirley. Right now there are bigger issues. The train is out of gin. It is a two part new wobbly leaning train connecting two 5 car trains. I have suggested they stop in the Wiltshire countryside and the gin porter runs back down the track to the second half of the train to replenish. Or perhaps an unscheduled stop at Frome or somewhere to replenish.}

7.) 23 Jan 2019 18:00:39
Was a revelation under Conte, just a pity that Sarri came in and changed formation. Always came across as a nice bloke.

8.) 23 Jan 2019 18:07:24
Ed002 i have always rated him. Gutted that he is leaving England. He always performed good with teams he was loaned to. Im from South Africa and always supportplayers from my continant. Besides Drogba who do you think would top your list of all time African players.

{Ed002's Note - You would need to look at the likes of Yaya, Eto'o, Weah, Pele and Drogba - but perhaps Salif Keita would top the list for me.}

9.) 23 Jan 2019 18:11:28
Gin and tonic?

10.) 23 Jan 2019 18:27:35
Hoping that one day there will be another South African player in the Prem. I must be honest that I have been a rugby lover and supporter all my live untill 11 years ago when i saw my first full 90 min Football (Soccer) match and fell inlove. Sites like this and the guys on here plus the games everyweek makes it so much more injoyable. Thx foe all the hard work All the Eds put in to this site. I sneak a peek on here everynight for updates and rumours and banter. Bit when there is a tranfer window and the Eds start giving clues and info. man that just makes my day. Awesome keep it up.

{Ed0333's Note - we all pray for another Lucas radebe mate.

11.) 23 Jan 2019 18:29:06
i do wish moses all the best an absoloutely fantastic servant under conte the most hard working guy u could come across never gave up on himself even after all his loan spells etc. all the best victor 4ever a fan favourite after the fantastic campaign on the pl title under conte.

12.) 23 Jan 2019 20:05:41
roger milla must get a mention just for the italia 90 matches.

13.) 23 Jan 2019 20:30:35
Talking of SA players, there was also the highly likeable Phil Masinga (Leeds and SA in the 1990s) who died very recently. RIP Phil.

14.) 23 Jan 2019 19:29:32
Yes we do but it was so long ago already.

15.) 23 Jan 2019 20:02:11
thanks for reply ed most grateful and its been to long for a while now haha good to see you taking the time to give us a bit of insight on the chelsea page
good luck victor mate whereever you maybe.

16.) 23 Jan 2019 21:32:12
Agree 100% on Moses, seemed a really decent bloke, bided his time and was a revelation for one season. Best of luck to him.

17.) 24 Jan 2019 00:30:33
There was Quinton fortune back in the day when I first started watching football. Another South African here 🙌🏻.

18.) 23 Jan 2019 22:54:29
Are you a fan of Selif Keita Ed002?
One of my favourite African strikers!

{Ed002's Note - I am not a fan of any footballer.}

19.) 23 Jan 2019 23:51:07
Good to see all the love for Ed002, hopefully there hasn’t been any abuse on this post.

20.) 24 Jan 2019 00:34:56
Forgive me for asking Ed, but is Moses heading to Fenerbache?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

21.) 24 Jan 2019 01:52:18
ed when you said further outgoings, did you mean in addition to Higuain? thanks a lot and thanks for answering again 😁.

{Ed002's Note - What?}

22.) 24 Jan 2019 12:41:20
Dazz. Higuain has only just arrived!

23.) 24 Jan 2019 16:46:56
ed will there be more incoming after higuain?

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get involved.}



22 Jan 2019 20:42:00
on a lighter note i cannot wait to see higuain in a chelsea shirt. haven't been this happy over a signing since matt miazaga no jokes aside i really am glad i think he will fit our style perfectly and i see him becoming a bit hit
come on gonzo bend one in from outside the box.

gianfranco gola

1.) 22 Jan 2019 23:17:56
And me one thing I’m positive about. Just hoping for a triple H front three.

2.) 23 Jan 2019 09:00:26
we all are king kante mate would be awesome.

3.) 23 Jan 2019 15:42:21
Shame it wasn't completed in time for the Spurs game.

4.) 23 Jan 2019 19:03:52
ya but the fa cup game will be a perfect game to settle him in.



27 Dec 2018 13:14:16
With Bakayoko playing really well in Milan in a midfield three is there plans to bring him back to club after his loan or has he had his chance and blown it I think he could be a great player in the right system.

gianfranco gola

1.) 27 Dec 2018 14:09:43
It's unlikely that Bakayoko will be back.

2.) 27 Dec 2018 14:25:05
bakayoko please don't ever want to see him in a chelsea shirt again he was a shambles.

3.) 28 Dec 2018 01:23:24
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.



17 Feb 2018 20:38:15
Hi eds are Chelsea interested in sessengon of Fulham or is he earmarked by someone else.

gianfranco gola

{Ed001's Note - yes you are, as are Spurs and Liverpool, plus a few European teams, in particular Dortmund. I know he is seen by Spurs as the potential first choice replacement for Danny Rose.}

1.) 17 Feb 2018 21:09:25
Cheers ed.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

2.) 17 Feb 2018 21:44:13
What do you think of him as a player Ed? Personally haven’t seen much of him.

{Ed001's Note - brilliant little player mate, going to be a huge star if he makes the progress he should. Can play anywhere on the left side and play it very well. He reminds me a lot of Bale, but better than Bale was at his age, though he is nowhere near the level Bale actually reached. He is that good though.}

3.) 19 Feb 2018 22:11:57
If you were to take an educated guess Ed001 where do you think he’ll end up?

{Ed001's Note - Spurs. If it hadn't been that he wanted first team football and knew he would get it at Fulham, that he didn't join them last summer.}

4.) 20 Feb 2018 14:38:09
Fair enough that makes sense thank you for the reply mate.

{Ed001's Note - welcome Danny.}

Champions league next year
Could finish 3rd
League Cup final got beat on pens by best team in league at the minute
Could be heading to a europa league final all with a mish mash team for the manager
All you doubters out there who's sarri now
Well done mate I would of taken that at beginning of the season.

gianfranco gola

1.) 07 May 2019 08:48:09

This is close to the perfect post.

Well done.

I would add that I like the style of football (or at least what it could be with an actual preseason)

2.) 07 May 2019 22:35:20
Salute you sir.



08 Apr 2019 08:51:56
Hi Ed if Chelsea won europa league and utd or spurs won the champions league but failed to get in top 4 does that mean there would be 6 English teams in champions league next year.

gianfranco gola

{Ed002's Note - No, five is the maximum. 4th place would lose out.}

1.) 08 Apr 2019 21:16:42
OK thanks ed.



27 Mar 2019 07:07:37
Quick question lads
If you had the choice of keeping hazard or huson odoi next season which one would you keep.

gianfranco gola

1.) 27 Mar 2019 07:40:12
Hudson Odoi every time. Has years ahead of him, unlimited potential. If we can get close to £100m for hazard even better.

2.) 27 Mar 2019 07:45:23
It’s a tricky one, I guess most people would say hazard imo I would say CHO he's young and hungry he’s capable of being as good as Rashford and sterling and he’s English. Hazard has been our best player for a number of years now I would be over the moon if he was to stay but really can’t see it now he’s said he’s made up his mind surely that means he’s going overwise he would of signed by now, hopefully I’m wrong tho. I’m excited to see CHO and Pulisic play next season as our wingers. So to answer your question. CALLUM HUDSON-ODOI.

3.) 27 Mar 2019 08:14:13
Don't forget we would probably be able to get at least 35 mil for CHO. I know that he's got 6 less months of his contract in the summer, but he's also played two international matches! And the statistics quite clearly show how reliant we are on Eden. If we could get him to extend and have his full concentration on us, then keeping Eden would be fantastic.

4.) 27 Mar 2019 08:53:09

5.) 27 Mar 2019 10:20:35
Callum, Eden always talks about leaving whereas CHO just wants to play. Sell Eden and Willian and invest that money in a top young striker and a young LW. For me Jovic and someone like Chiesa or Bailey. The replacement for Hazard doesn’t have to be direct then we’d have 3 young wingers in CHO, Pulisic and Chiesa/ Bailey.

6.) 27 Mar 2019 12:21:45
Very difficult and tricky question to answer. If you asked me to sell one and replace him with another good player out there, I will sell Hudson Odoi and replace him with another top quality young player out there (that is if Hazard is willing to sign an extension) .

7.) 27 Mar 2019 19:06:04
Has to be Callum. We need home grown players making it to the first team and CHO could be a star for another 15 years!



24 Mar 2019 08:53:48
Ed could you possibly put us out of our Misery
Papers saying hazard has agreed to go to real
Has anything changed or just media spouting old news.

gianfranco gola

{Ed002's Note - As I understand it Hazard has not agreed to any move at this time.}

1.) 24 Mar 2019 09:31:14
Thanks Ed for quick reply can enjoy my Sunday roast now have a good day.

{Ed002's Note - Enjoy your meal.}

2.) 24 Mar 2019 10:06:34
Would he even be allowed to? Surely Hazard is still under contract and can't be approached by Real?

3.) 24 Mar 2019 11:52:43
Welcome back 002, hopefully here to stay. Enjoying the input.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

4.) 24 Mar 2019 12:45:50
Real Madrid can talk to his agent. I don't want Hazard to leave Chelsea but if he ends up signing an extension, I will be very surprised.



18 Mar 2019 19:55:19
alonso was bad yesterday he seems to have gotten his new contract and thought that will do
who knows what's going on in there personal lives but he just seems like he ain't bothered since he signed a new deal.

gianfranco gola

1.) 18 Mar 2019 20:40:54
He is just not playing well. Bringing any issues they may or may not be happening in his personal life is irrelevant and bonkers IMO.

Why must there be a reason fo poor form? It happens to all players!

2.) 18 Mar 2019 21:20:09
it was just a comment tom sometimes no one knows why players form drops and believe it or not it could be something nor related to football just personal circumstances it wasnt a justification just there humans like the rest of us and also if there crap there crap
i remember my uncle always took me to palace matches for years even though i support chelsea
there was a player called andy gray a really good midfielder for a few years and when his mum died he was pants for the rest of his career.
im going through a really tough time at minute and couldn't give to s1hits about my work go in and do bare minimum to survive
these players aren't machines they have lives outside football that's all i meant sorry may have put it wrong.

3.) 18 Mar 2019 21:27:10
He is just playing crap like a lot of other players, not worth speculating on why?

4.) 18 Mar 2019 21:46:03
ok because no one speculates on here i was speaking out of turn sorry.

5.) 18 Mar 2019 22:23:55
No problems with speculation Franco.

Hope your issues work out for you. Keep your chin up mate!

6.) 19 Mar 2019 08:29:10
He’s just not good enough defensively against the smaller teams he normally plays well attack wise but as soon as Everton pushed there wing backs on us we struggled for me Emerson has to play especially in them tougher games, he played against spuds and we was defensively sound. Sarri seems to be playing them the other way round. I get why CHO is not starting every week he needs time to develop but Loftus-cheek needs to be starting games now. The Kante position has been talked about time and again we all no he needs to be in his normal position and IMO Jorghino is out of position too he literally the slowest player we have, I think he should be in a more Eriksen like position and let Kante do the running.

Said that a year ago Tom mate just say your going everyone knows all this cloak and dagger stuff is tedious
Even if they haven't agreed terms if hazard just said I would love to go to real but waiting on clubs agreeing I'd be happy enough with that
But all this I will decide after europa league final I have told Chelsea of my decision and I will let fans know then bore off.
