Nizaar Kinsella is saying that Hudson Odoi is close to signing a new deal after having words with Frank Lampard. That will be good news if it comes to pass.

And Loftus Cheek has signed, up Chelsea! Hudson Odoi next- hopefully.

Ruben Loftus Cheek has agreed a new long term deal at Chelsea. Signs of good things to come.

obinna 123

1.) 02 Jul 2019 20:24:46
Hopefully CHO does the same.


2.) 03 Jul 2019 07:40:03
Not my money I know, but am I the only one who thinks the reported wages are very risky for someone with essentially half a good season for us? I really like the player and think he will go on to be great, but we can’t deny he has injury issues, and will be coming off an Achilles injury next year.

I hope I’m three years time we aren’t looking at that wage as something stopping us from signing a top player that we badly need to replace him as his body just doesn’t let him perform. Still, got to be happy that the contract means they see him as close to an undisputed starter, as it’s a lot to pay a rotational option, right? Get fit and make it seem like a bargain Ruben!


3.) 03 Jul 2019 10:37:01
Roweycfc; that's football of nowadays.


4.) 03 Jul 2019 11:30:07
Nizaar Kinsella is saying that it's £120,000/ week; Matt Law is saying it's close to £150,000/ week- whichever it is, I am sure the club knows what it's doing.
As an aside: Loftus Cheek is a very good player, though I must confess that sometimes I wish that he played street football in Nigeria or West Africa, we would have thought him a little bit of how to use that massive viscera of a body that he's got (esp to shield the ball without getting injured) - I think he can watch a bit of Yaya Toure, Mikel and Essien in that respect.


5.) 03 Jul 2019 11:31:44
Rowey, look at it this way. If we didn't offer it, some other club would, he'd want to leave, and the board would be slated.


6.) 03 Jul 2019 17:25:42
True I suppose, and someone earlier told me Rashfords new wage, so suddenly Rubes looks positively cheap!

Chelsea has confirmed the signing of Mateo Kovacic on a five-year deal for £40m. Lampard talks continuing today and tomorrow according to Sky sports.

obinna 123

1.) 01 Jul 2019 18:45:18
Our transfer activities for this summer have been concluded gents. Pulisic and Kovacic. Not bad given that we are banned.


2.) 01 Jul 2019 19:31:55
Looking forward to the pre-season games.


3.) 02 Jul 2019 09:33:14
Will be definitely able to see them play Bohs, and possibly even the St Pats game.


 

 

28 Jun 2019 23:38:10
Matt Law confirms that Kovacic deal is done; and says that Chelsea has told Athletico Madrid to sign Morata outright (for £50m) or recall him back to Chelsea. I remember that Lampard made some good comments about Morata and sees him as a player that can be very good for Chelsea in the UEFA champions league.

obinna 123

1.) 29 Jun 2019 13:02:21
I personally would really like to see Morata back at the club assuming the transfer ban is upheld. He’s said some things since leaving that aren’t great but I have zero question he’s the best striker we have on our books. Giroud is good at what he does but his game is very limited and he’s not getting any younger.

Batshuayi has yet to show any indication that he’s capable of leading the line and the fact that Palace aren’t angling to resign him (ala Zouma at Everton) should say it all. Abraham isn’t ready and I’d be worried that if he was kept around the unrealistic expectations would impair his development and he’d be better served continuing his development on loan.


2.) 29 Jun 2019 14:58:35
Morata has everything to be a top top striker apart from the mentality, mentally weak, Cavani aguero Kane etc will miss chance after chance but that’ doesn’t change anything in there play, they know there game and stick to it, morata buckled and seemed unhappy in London, why have a striker / player who doesn’t want to be here? His literally said he will do everything in his power to stay in Madrid, i.


3.) 29 Jun 2019 15:29:15
I think we’re using this as an empty threat, as Atletico is going to be pocketing large sums of money from selling players (Rodri, Antoine) . I believe that the quoted amount for Morata would just about recoup the fee that we originally paid for him.


4.) 29 Jun 2019 16:36:39
I think the stance that Chelsea is taking on the Morata issue is the wise move.


5.) 29 Jun 2019 20:15:20
It’s wise if they buy, selling Griezmann / costa / Rodri but paying out €126 felix. If we force there hand and he returns, then what. A £50m man who has said he doesn’t want to be at Chelsea,


6.) 29 Jun 2019 21:00:15
Tbh, Morata shouldn't have made some of those wrong comments about Chelsea. I think that if Morata returns and doesn't want to play cos he's unhappy, then he sits on the bench and miss out on going to the Euros next year- which I know he wouldn't want to miss out on; or he can come back to Chelsea and play for Frank Lampard, which ever way, I don't think Chelsea has got anything to lose if they take that step. Another scenario is that- there might be other teams that might be interested in him (other than Athletico Madrid) .


7.) 29 Jun 2019 22:31:34
Keeping a player who is unhappy possibly sitting on the bench. Missing out on regular football. Getting a year older would lose so much resale value, so it’s a risk, plus as I believe Chelsea have never like managers kept someone who doesn’t want to be there,


8.) 29 Jun 2019 23:44:16
Then he goes to Athletico Madrid's management and push them to sign him permanently (from Chelsea) cos it takes someone that's sure of Athletico Madrid's loyalty (to sign him permanently) to make some of the comments that he made.


9.) 30 Jun 2019 08:35:49
Another question is: Why this sudden request from Chelsea to Athletico Madrid for Morata at this time (cos before now it was looking like Athletico was going to take him on another loan)? Maybe Lampard really rates him and maybe wants him back playing for Chelsea.


10.) 30 Jun 2019 11:24:06
I don't want morata back. He's got the wrong attitude. Tammy is ready and knows where the net is.


11.) 30 Jun 2019 11:54:45
No, no, no - we must only have players who really want to play for Chelsea. Morata has made it very obvious that he doesn't want to be here.


12.) 30 Jun 2019 12:55:37
Tammy knows were the net is, in the championship; let’s not get carried away. Quite a gulf in quality between the leagues,


13.) 30 Jun 2019 23:31:58
I don’t feel Tammy is ready for the pressure that comes with leading the line for our club. He did fill it up in the championship but teams aren’t tripping over themselves to sign him and he didn’t even start for the U21’s. I think Morata would have enough motivation considering the Euro’s are at the end of the year and if he wants to make the squad he’ll need to perform.


14.) 30 Jun 2019 23:32:12
Vardy knew where the net was non league.


15.) 01 Jul 2019 09:16:48
Vardy has explosive pace and thrives in a counter attacking team, Tammy doesn’t have explosive pace and his strengths of being tall, strong and alive in and around 6 yard box are also 90% of the defenders strengths in Orem league.


16.) 03 Jul 2019 14:24:47
Good point TK; same point that I was making in comment above.

Sky in Italy says that Juventus have reached an agreement with Chelsea for Sarri.

obinna 123

1.) 14 Jun 2019 07:38:48
Good luck to him! Hopefully we can get lampard now. Iv wanted him since last season, to the people that say he shouldn’t be our manager he’s a legend and should stay that way, what a load of old cobblers! People who wouldn’t class him as a legend if he failed as the manger should go back to support Utd! We have all been crying out for youth to be giving a chance lampard and Jody Morris would 100% do that. For the first time in years they wouldn’t be to much pressure on the manger with our transfer ban, lampard is the only man I would want managing us, I think he’s earned a shot.


2.) 14 Jun 2019 10:19:27
I, like you, would like us to appoint Lamps if possible, I'd like us to give him time to work with the team and do his job, within reason, regardless of results, clearly if we lose all of our games we may need to rethink. One point is though that we all seem to be saying that appointing Lamps and Jody will mean we give youth a chance. is that guaranteed? If he does come in I don't see him suddenly throwing in 6 or 7 youngsters. Regardless of who takes over, due to the ban, we will need to integrate more of youth/ fringe players. I guess what I'm trying to say is let's just get behind whoever the next manager is and whatever team he picks, everyone's an expert and could do a better job, having a different opinion is everyone's right, abusing a manager or player is never acceptable. Let's get behind whoever, whenever. Come on the Chels.


3.) 14 Jun 2019 16:37:12
Spizzy, I don’t think there should be any guarantees.

My guess is we will have fresh players (CHO, RLC, Rudi and James) ready to play towards the end of September. They have to win their place back in the team by impressing in training and when given a chance there performances.

We will win the League comfortably!

COME on MY MIGHTY BLUES.

Professionalism without character is tantamount to nothing. I can't imagine how the mighty Diego Costa who was respected in Stanford Bridge and seen as one of best strikers in the world (some few seasons back) now looks like low striker (considering the clubs that are linked to him) . Funny, this is a player that Chelsea carried like an egg and was ready to give the world.

Seen a lot of articles on PSG, Manchester United and Arsenal's interest in Bakayoko. I see him as one of those players that the club has got to give a second chance cos it looks like he wants to prove something this season At least give him till next season.

obinna 123

1.) 09 Jul 2019 01:33:56
He did do well 2nd half of the season at Milan but let’s not forget he was abysmal here. If PSG came in with a 30 million bid it’s too hard to turn down for a player who’s struggled to adapt to the premier league. I think we should cash in and add it to a mega transfer kitty next summer.


2.) 09 Jul 2019 09:41:51
Surely we'll keep him as a backup for Kante?


3.) 09 Jul 2019 10:54:56
I really think Chelsea should keep Bakayoko; besides making the team stronger by adding more depth and options to our midfield (in this season that the club will be playing so many big games cos of the UCL), I feel he wants to play for Chelsea, fight for his place and does want to prove something.
Most players (with great potential) that Chelsea have bought tend to start actualising their potential- one or two seasons after we loan or sell them out (that's in cases where these players didn't do well in their debut season) for instance, Lukaku, K. De Bruyne, M. Salah etc. I think the club should do something about that pattern by giving him another chance at least till season cos if Arsenal, Manchester United, PSG sees something, then maybe he deserves one more shot (after his improvement at AC Milan) . It's a risk but I feel it's worth taking.


4.) 09 Jul 2019 14:34:24
I’d sell Jorginho for big money and bring back Bakayoko.

Midfield of Kante, Loftus-Cheek, Kovacic, Bakayoko and Barkley. In order of most important.


5.) 09 Jul 2019 19:53:03
Wow standard.


6.) 10 Jul 2019 08:58:27
Because I think we should sell Jorginho? I don’t think he had the greatest season honestly, he wasn’t too impressive.

Though I think he’s a good player, he’s much more suited to the slower league being Italy. He was an absolute defensive liability last year and I think we’d fetch big money for Sarri’s boy.


7.) 10 Jul 2019 09:54:00
I think we forget he was rushed back from injury in his year at the club and never seemed to settle with any form of confidence. I don’t feel we have another player in the squad like him who does what he does in sitting deep and breaking up the play and he therefore could be a very useful piece of a squad. Kante breaks up play but doesn’t sit deep, while Jorginho sits deep but doesn’t break up play.


8.) 10 Jul 2019 12:52:46
You will see the best of Jorginho now that Chelsea wants to play a quick passing possession football (like Lampard said) . I strongly do not second the idea of selling Jorginho. He is a top quality midfielder.


9.) 11 Jul 2019 21:15:57
Standard you do know what man city. would prob bite your hand off for him that's how bad jorginho is.


 

 

05 Jul 2019 18:24:17
I don't know the details of my home boy- Kenneth Omeruo's loan to Leganes (if it was with an option to buy) and the plan that Chelsea have got for him but I feel the club should take another close look at him before any sale is sanctioned cos from what I have seen of him lately- he has improved a lot, he's strong and good on the ball too.

Those of us that really want to see more of the academy players with the first team players might be getting their wish getting their wish with Lampard in charge. Looks like Lamps really wants to believe and work with the kids.

Please Eds, do you know if Reece James had surgery on his ankle injury or was he treated without surgery? There wasn't any confirmation news from anywhere that he had the surgery or not. In other words, are we seeing him play at the pre-seasons? Thanks for your reply.

obinna 123

{Ed001's Note - he didn't need surgery and is in rehab now, so he should make the pre-season unless there is a setback.}


1.) 30 Jun 2019 21:48:20
Thankyou Ed. It's really good to actually know for sure that he didn't go under the knife.

{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed he will suffer no setbacks.}

Top players want to play for top teams in their countries (esp in the elite league countries) .
No German player will turn down Bayern Munich to come to Chelsea or ManCity; or Spanish player turn down Barcelona or Real Madrid to come Chelsea or ManCity etc. I wonder why Hudson Odoi isn't looking convinced with Chelsea's advances.

I think Ampadu should be perfect playing Centre half; besides, I agree that going on a two-year loan with option to recall will be perfect for him.

Or could it be that he wants to be fully fit from injury, have a run of games, see how that pans out and maybe sign or refuse the contract. Most players don't like making transfer moves to other clubs or extend their deals when they are not fit.
Dharmesh Seth of Sky Sports said (in their News room yesterday at 7:00pm said that, there are mixed reports concerning Hudson Odoi's contract extension story at Chelsea; he said that, 'Bayern Munich are not giving up their chase for Hudson Odoi but there are reports that he's close to extending his deal with Chelsea; and there are also reports of Chelsea been wide apart in any agreement with Hudson Odoi's camp; He also said that, after talks between Hudson Odoi and Frank Lampard, all camps (which includes: Chelsea, Hudson Odoi camp and Frank Lampard) still needs to sit together and iron out a head way. It really has to be that Hudson Odoi wants assurances which I think Chelsea shouldn't give him, if he's not confident that he can win a place in this team, I think Chelsea should sell him if a good offer comes in.
