Ed002 I beg for your help lol I've never been so bored stuck at home with 3 kids and no sport even to pass the time I do love my kids by the way
Could you give us an update on Chelsea targets and players leaving when all this crap ends
Have mercy ed on a lot of bored men reaching out to your charitable side
LOL stay safe any news would be great.

gianfranco gola

{Ed002's Note - I will explain where the club is with the goalkeeping situation.

Kepa Arrizabalaga (G) no decision yet but Chelsea has a list of possible replacements that they have had two people take a look at – right now don’t expect him to leave but there is a tiny bit of interest in him.

Gianluigi Donnarumma (G) not expected to be available (a) if he signs a new deal, AND (b) Milan avoid a financial crisis - in which case Juventus could pounce - interest from elsewhere which could possibly include Inter, but I think that would be too difficult. PSG and Juventus are viable options and Real Madrid cannot be discounted. An approach has been made to an Chelsea side but there is a significant levy being put on wages.
Juan Musso (G) has been watched on several occasions since arriving in Italy. Inter has an interest as well and price could prove to be an issue.
Thomas Strakosha (G) several sides have shown an interest including Liverpool and Spurs but a discussion Chelsea had with Lazio regarding another player led to it being stated that the player will not be sold and they are looking at agreeing a new contract.
Alex Meret (G) lots of clubs have been looking - Inter are keen with Juventus interest dropping away.
Andre Onana (G) has been looked at by Spurs as a potential Lloris replacement, Chelsea if they decide to part ways with Arrizabalaga and Barcelona who expect ter Stegan to look for a move might be interested.
Mike Maignan (G) has been scouted on a number of occasions.
Ugrucan Cakir (G) Trabzonspor want €30M to ease financial issues and are happy for Eddie Newton to aid a move to Chelsea. Lots of interest from elsewhere.
Brad Young (G) Several Premier League sides and Middlesbrough have sent scouts to Billingham Town to watch young loanee Brad Young of whom much is expected. Chelsea have already agreed a transfer with Hartlepool (who ironically have two ex Chelsea goalkeepers at the club and an ex Chelsea goalkeeper as a coach) and initially agreed to take him to London to show him the ground and to Surrey to show him the training facilities. All agreed that he will move to Chelsea after he turns 18 in the summer. }

Brilliant Ed thanks very much
Enjoy your tiffin and margaritas
Stay safe.

{Ed002's Note - And you.}

2.) 05 Apr 2020 00:06:55
Thanks for the update Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.)

3.) 05 Apr 2020 19:21:29
Ed002, is the other Lazio player one amongst Acerbi and Milinkovic-Savic?

{Ed002's Note - No. It doesn’t matter now.}

4.) 05 Apr 2020 21:40:19
Ok. Is it possible for you to tell us who's interested in Kepa?

{Ed002's Note - It would not be appreciated.}

5.) 06 Apr 2020 18:50:33
Thank you so much for the update ed! Much appreciated!

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}



24 Mar 2020 00:18:55
Ed with everything up in the sir do you think the transfer window could change dates and times
With seasons basically postponed or over do you think they might bring it forward.

gianfranco gola

{Ed002's Note - The intention remains that the season will be completed if possible. As such if it runs through June you would then see a shorter transfer window. They will certainly not be bringing it forward.}

1.) 24 Mar 2020 08:24:33
OK thanks for reply stay safe mate were ever you are.

Apparently gilmour is peps main target according to guardian

1.) 06 Mar 2020 16:46:23
Who got it from a Spanish tabloid. Non-story.

2.) 06 Mar 2020 19:48:59
Pep pushes for Gilmour (meanwhile he's actually targeting/ more interested in Jorginho) which makes Chelsea to reject any move for Gilmour leading to Chelsea valuing Gilmour even more; which could result to more game time for Gilmour and which he (Pep) believes Chelsea will consequently interpret as less game time for Jorginho; which could open the door to Jorginho being felling unsettled even more at the club; which gives him (Pep) an easier route to snapping up Jorginho.
Sorry Pep, you ain't getting any of our midfielders.

3.) 06 Mar 2020 21:35:31
You're some story teller obinna, I'll give you that!

4.) 07 Mar 2020 09:16:20
I'd let him have Jorgi if he wants to be honest. I'd prefer us to use a bit more combative midfielders.

5.) 07 Mar 2020 10:24:30
Hi Jackson, I am one of Jorginho's biggest fans and I feel we aren't utilising his ability maximally maybe cos of our brand of football or cos we don't have the kind of attacking players that will can connect better with him; but even if he (Jorginho) eventually leaves Chelsea, I will never sell him another premier league club esp Manchester City or Liverpool. If for whatever reason, Jorginho gets to Manchester City, I can swear to you that Man city will dominate both English and world football for the next 3-4 years cos Pep's brand of football will make explode right to the top.

6.) 07 Mar 2020 18:11:55
This reminds me of when Jack Wiltshire has a good game v Barcelona and was linked.

7.) 08 Mar 2020 10:26:53
If Pep wants Jorginho I'll drive Jorginho to Manchester myself for free.

Beneteke is the new Hulk!



07 Dec 2019 10:35:36
Ed any news on Loftus cheeks return.

gianfranco gola

{Ed001's Note - Lampard has just said, about 3 days ago, that he is nowhere near a return yet and it is not healing as expected. Sorry mate, you might not get him back this season by the sound of it. Even if it heals, it is going to take a while to get fit again and then find his sharpness. Such a long time out is going to take a while to get back.}

1.) 07 Dec 2019 11:12:47
Thanks Ed for quick reply shame really I think he will be our Darren Anderton hope not good player.

{Ed001's Note - with all the improvements to the understanding of nutrition and fitness coaching, he should hopefully be safe from that. Fingers crossed.}

2.) 07 Dec 2019 11:22:10
Have a good weekend mate.

{Ed001's Note - you too mate.}

3.) 07 Dec 2019 11:32:16
It's a shame he as suffered an injury of this nature by playing in such uneven playing conditions in a friendly. But it is what it and Chelsea will just need to get on it. He was just to have returned by now so clearly things are not going well.

{Ed001's Note - this is what Lampard said: "He has had a few setbacks over the last two months. He hasn't had a new one but it is not flying along as much as we would want. At the moment we are no closer to him being fit." On the 4th, so just 3 days ago.}

4.) 07 Dec 2019 13:32:46
Thanks Ed1. Appreciate it mate.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}

Eds do you think the league will get cancelled with this corona virus it all seems to be getting worse
For the safety of everyone football ain't that important
Would just like to say hope everyone is OK over the coming months and we can all chat next season.

gianfranco gola

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any plans to cancel the league although you may find games being played without fans in the stadium very soon.}

1.) 12 Mar 2020 10:33:19
Football without fans just won't be the same.

{Ed002's Note - The fans will simply have to suck ut up and get on with it for the time being.}

2.) 12 Mar 2020 12:35:19
Pretty sure the pandemic is more important than the games right now.

3.) 12 Mar 2020 12:41:12
I see Real Madrid have gone into quarantine, Daniel Rugani has tested positive and European Leagues suspended. In other sport the Six Nations has been delayed, NBA suspended and McLaren have just had to pull out of the Australian GP.

There seems to be a sense of inevitability that this will impact the Premier League more than playing within empty stadiums. It's a case of when, not if, that happens.



10 Mar 2020 20:02:33
Uefa ban handshakes but let's all slide about in each others spit
Why do footballers spit constantly it's weird.

26 Feb 2020 09:16:18
I thought we played like 80s Wimbledon last night long hoof up to big man up front
Players didn't seem to know what the man next to him was doing
Why did giroud come off for tammy what was that going to change 2 0 down at home
Why not play both
Why didn't willIan start this game was crying out for pace and mount and barkley have none
Bayern are a very good team but I think our negative setup from first minute basically handed them the iniative
Im going to say it if 2 years ago we appointed a head coach from a championship side with 1 years experience instead of sarri we would of thought the board had lost there marbles
Because its Frank we all go give him time
No manager in roman era has been rewarded with time so why Frank
If allegri pochettino were available at the beginning of this year I think Frank would still be at derby.

gianfranco gola

1.) 26 Feb 2020 09:45:58
You forgot that we had 2 window transfer ban which didn't help us with attracting top manager.

2.) 26 Feb 2020 16:40:57
Agree Gola. I don't get it myself.



25 Feb 2020 23:28:10
Ed have Chelsea any interest in Davies.

Really Gola?! Haha πŸ˜‚.

2.) 26 Feb 2020 08:15:07
It was a joke rowey Tom asked how long it would b4 someone asked lol.



20 Feb 2020 16:04:41
With current performances do you see big Frank as manager next season are the club hierarchy happy with the direction he is taking the team?

This time last year it was obvious sarri was under sever pressure and the club wouldn't stand in his way if he chose to leave
Conte the same the year before and Jose we all know what happened there
Just curious as to whether they are happy with what's happening on the pitch.

gianfranco gola

1.) 20 Feb 2020 17:11:59
Yes, the club knew this was a transition year. They are already actively signing Lampard targets (Ziyech) .

2.) 20 Feb 2020 17:37:52
I can't imagine they are happy about our appalling form in the last three months.
If things don't improve and for example we finish 7th you can forget the rhetoric about this being a transition season.
The only thing that might sway the club is identifying a replacement who would be prepared to continue developing the younger players.

3.) 20 Feb 2020 21:55:10
Why can we forget that rhetoric Turvey? We had a better squad in Jose's final season, no Hazard for most the year and finished 10th. Any kind of European football for Frank is a massive success.

4.) 20 Feb 2020 22:58:06
You know that the squad was at odds with Jose in a major way and he had lost the dressing room.
I don't see the club watching any further meltdown this season without considering the future of the manager.
They have a track record for taking these decisions and I don't see that changing.
