From reports it seems that Begovic is indeed close to a move to Bournemouth.
I think we all knew about this potential move last January but only when that replacement was signed so is their any news as to who that is going to be?


1.) 30 May 2017 14:16:18
I'd take Joe Hart but doubt he'll sit on the bench. Shay Given has recently become a freebie. But I suppose we have Eduardo for the old mans job of 3rd in line.

2.) 30 May 2017 17:45:16
If Cech is not guaranteed a start at Arsenal then we should bring him home as our 2nd goalie.

3.) 30 May 2017 20:03:21
Would think we may go for stockdale off of Brighton think his contract is up now and would add to the home grown quota
Tierney or if possible danny rose for the lwb position put azpi rwb then move cahill to rcb and put ake at lcb with zouma and christensen thrown in the mix
Add baker, musonda and maybe kennedy to the squad with a couple of big name signings veratti my ideal midfielder
Will bale become available do you think eds?

4.) 31 May 2017 08:08:19
you a celtic fan or something? Tierney would go straight to vitesse if we bought him.

5.) 31 May 2017 10:18:40
Hahaha no im not remember pat nevin doing an article as well stating what a good player he was.

6.) 31 May 2017 13:03:51
he is very good. id expect if he went to bottom half of the premier league he would start for say, Newcastle or Bournemouth by the end of the season. got wiped out last weekend, worth checking out. big elbow in the face, think I few teeth got knocked in!

Ed 002

Are you hearing anything about potential deals for target number 1 being Benteke and then target 2 being Kane?

Wa advised by a long time Villa employee that They are looking to sale and he wants to leave. also Chelsea have been asking questions of Kane and whilst Spurs are determined to keep Kane should Spurs fail to progress next season then there is a real possibility that they will sale.


{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has no interest in either.}

1.) 28 Mar 2015 19:47:26
I am afraid we can't afford Kane.



23 Apr 2013 08:00:03

Are you hearing anything about Sam Hutchinson getting a permanent deal at Notts Forest? I admire how he has come back but doubt he will ever break into the first team at Chelsea {Ed002's Note - No.}

We have had exchanges about the possible implications of the Webster ruling on the transfer market and whilst there hasn't been much said in the press I noticed that there is mention of Ya Ya buying himself out of his Man City contract.

I realise that you may well have many other demands on your time but are you able to share your views and or understanding of what the rules are regarding players buying themselves out of their contracts.

Thanks {Ed002's Note - A few players have taken the opportunity to move under the Webster ruling, but it is a very small number. I am aware of two players, and there are probably more, that have used the ruling as part of their negotiations for new contracts but neither would have gone as far as invoking it and potentially entering in to a protracted legal case which could see them sitting in limbo.}

Inside the ground yesterday it was quite noticeable that very little abuse directed at RB (did it come over that way on TV?) The players were magnificent at times and other than the ball in the air West Ham United didn't really hurt us at all

Other than one song from West Ham United supporters suggetsing they wanted Rafa to stay I didn't hear anything not even on 16 minutes

What was iteresting is that RB again rotated the squad and despite the game midweek the players seemed fairly fresh whereas Spuds it seem gave the impression that they were running out of steam and makes me wonder if their lack of depth will be their un doing

But hey top 4 is a must for us any thing else this season will be a bonus


1.) I'm no fan of Rafa, but I"m glad the boo boys are beginning to quieten down a bit.

It's no coincidence that the boos stop when we actually get some decent results. We don't like him, but if he had actually made some improvements to the competitiveness of the team earlier, the boos would have stopped earlier.

Whatever the reason though, I'm glad they seem to be stopping.

Jake Clarke Salter

In mid dish August it didn't seem that there was any news on him going out on loan has that changed?




08 May 2014 21:15:23
Ed 002

Are any clubs showing an interest in Kenneth Omeruo?


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware of.}



18 Jan 2014 09:12:48
Letting any player run down his contract is a dangerous game when that player(Rooney) has value in excess of £20 million and it is something that a club like Manchester United and in particular their owners would have risked had they not just appointed a new manager.
Rooney now holds the whip hand in that he is entering the stage where he can in effect give notice and walk away from his contract for about a£10-£15 million player paid compensation. A great bargaining chip even if you don't need to play it
So Ed :002 My question is where there any rumours that RVPs transfer to Man U was forced through by the player serving notice under article 17 (Webster ruling)?


{Ed002's Note - No. Ignore the Webster ruling please.}

1.) Quite happy to ignore and know that's a view you have taken in the past so is there some sort of agreement in place that clubs won't sign players who have exercised this option?

{Ed002's Note - Only a handful of players have sought to use the Webster Ruling an- just ignore it.}



10 Jan 2014 11:39:30

Are there restrictions in La Liga around how long a player can remain at a Spanish club on loan?

I caught a snippet elsewhere that there may well be a 3 year restriction and if that's the case Courtois would not be able to remain, on loan, at A. Madrid past this seasons end


{Ed002's Note - Each loan is stand-alone with a one window minimum and a two window maximum.}



11 Jun 2013 15:05:09

A few weeks ago it was reported that Chelsea had taken steps to enforce the outstanding monies owed in the Mutu case.
Have you heard anything as to the outcome or when the findings will be published? {Ed002's Note - There is nothing related to transfers. Why would anything be published?}

Bit of chatter in today’s press that Chelsea are putting feelers out in respect of transfers for January, in other words some are suggesting the ban will be reduced to one window.
If, and a big if that is the case, I would not be at all surprised if there were to be one probably two incomings but to facilitate that several would leave likewise leave.

As for the players listed in the OP.
Sancho. Time will tell but I personally believe if CHO can be tied down and regains fitness he has as much potential as Sancho.
Chillwell is interesting and has the benefit of being HG. I personally like him as a player .
Neres. Don’t know a lot about him but not too sure the sort of position and indeed the type of player he is said to be is an area where we need to be looking at as a priority.
Dembelle. Yes please.

Kepa does indeed look to be both developing and indeed settling well.
It’s easy to forget that he has had 13 clean sheets in the PL this season which even for an experienced keeper is no mean feat.
I don’t know if one of the Ed’s can answer something that has had me scratching my head.
We know that Kepa had to buy himself out of his contract and that supposedly was around £70+ million. As I understand that sum isn’t the same as a transfer fee and has to come from the player and I doubt he had that sort of cash under the matteress
If that’s correct then its the player would be getting the money from Chelsea to compensate so no amortised fees etc in the accounts but would that money be paid by way of annual sum or more likely a one off signing on fee which if that’s correct surely would see a massive jump in the clubs declared wage bill.


{Ed002's Note - The "buy out clause" is legally binding between a club and a player. The "buy out" is effectively what it says - a means for the player to buy himself out of the contract. As an example, if a player wishes to buy himself out of a contract, he pays the applicable FA (on behalf of the club) the amount of the "buy out" clause effectively becoming a free agent. The problem is that in most cases a player would need to obtain that money from the buying club - and this is fraught with issues regarding "tapping up" and, of course, taxation (as it can be seen as income for the player and would therefore be subject to income tax). There was a test case about the taxation issue in Spain about five years ago which is why they have an exception. All players in Spain and Portugal have a clause that allows the player to buy himself out of his contract without tax implications. This was to address a ruling from around 30 years ago allowing players a way out of their contracts. The other notable point about Spain and Portugal is that the clauses if invoked by a non Iberian club need to be paid in full by the player (there are local rules that stop tax being due) but by needing to put up 100% of the money upfront would end many transfers then and there. It works differently in Iberia to elsewhere as the tax implications do not make such clauses viable. All players in Iberia must have a figure set and agreed with the club. So "buy out" clauses are very rare. Related to this is the Webster Ruling but I don't intend to go in to that now.}

It's quite amusing reading Liverpool supporters comments regarding tapping up and how quick they are to justify the clubs behaviour citing Ashley Cole to Chelsea, for which there is no defence.
However Liverpool have been accused or caught out quite a few times.
Anyone remember Ziege? Or what about Gareth Barry or how about Robbie Keane?
I am far from sure that we have heard the last of the Solanke to Liverpool saga as the timelines just don't fit.
Well done ed 2 for calling it as it is.

Roll on when the Nike deal kicks in. Because no photo shots or big announcements doesn't mean that work isn't going on in the background the trouble is far too many expect things to happen with just a click of the fingers. Be patient.

Very little business has been done or perhaps should I say announced yet. Don't forget that most of the top quality players were away on national duty till the last few days.

For me alarm bells started ringing when we were drip fed the news that his rehabilitation was going to take longer than first thought
Iverymuch doubt that he would be afforded the opportunity to get up to speed playing first team football at Chelsea and playing under 23 football would only be a first step.
As for blaming the board they wouldn't be anywhere near these sort of decisions it would be suggested, evaluated and either agreed or dismissed by the football and medical professionals.
Far too many are thinking short term for if he is unable to play when passed both physically and indeed mentally fit then there could be a long term impact in terms of the levels he will reach for its far from certain that he will ever return to the levels of the past or indeed improve.

With the exception of Zouma none of those players who were out on loan last season have yet been given a squad number and that includes Romeu who as we know has just signed a new contract.
Jose is no doubt working through his options and when he has decided that the player will be included in the squad they are allocated a squad number

Sorry but I am completely lost as to just what you are trying to say, it seems to change a little each time, so perhaps its best that we leave it there.

When you register your CL squads you send in two lists

The A list is your over 21 players max of 25 etc etc

On the B list you can register as many under 21 year olds as you like as long as they have been at the club for 2 years between the ages of 15 & 21.

Players like Van Ginkel qualified as under 21 for the PL but didn't for the CL. Hence the reason they are in the CL squad but are registered as under 21 in the PL squad. Its nothing to do with meeting the HG criteria quite simply there are slightly different rules

Yep that's what I thought but the wording says registered with a club affiliated to either the English or Welsh FAs
And all our under 21 players out on loan appear in our Premier League squad as being club registered with us but of course by virtue of them being on loan are competition registered with other clubs.
I used to think it was very straight forward but I keep coming back to the point namely how could we shown them in our squad list if they aren't registered with us!
