Ed is there any truth in reports that we are interested in mohamed ihattaren thanks.

{Ed002's Note - About a year ago a number of sides were invited to go and watch the player - Chelsea were one of those sides.}

I would really love Chelsea to acquire a left footed attacking midfielder/ winger as Mohammed is left footed.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 04:37:49
A list of quality left-footed wingers:

1) Mikel Oyarzabal
2) Leon Bailey
3) Cengiz Under
4) David Neres
5) Florian Thauvin
6) Suso
7) Hakim Ziyech
8) Malcom
9) Samuel Chukwueze
10) Domenico Berardi.

Ed002, would you be kind enough to tell us about Michy's future at the club?
And if possible, kindly give us an outgoing list for Chelsea (unless that will not be decided till November like the incoming targets) .

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has been decided about the future of MB. It would not be out of the question to see Giroud go in January as he has a viable option. Michael Hector is leaving in January and you won't see anything of him at all before then.}

12 Oct 2019 14:55:41
Is Giroud a option Lyon Ed? I heard they’ve been interested in the past.

{Ed002's Note - They could look to him if Moussa Dembélé were to move in January.}

Agree0 0Disagree

ed a lot of reports recently that chelsea have an interest in chilwell and will move for him when the ban goes, is there any truth and do we have any interest? thanks alot.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath unless Emerson’s dn Alonso were both to leave.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

11 Oct 2019 13:30:22
Ed is there a chance that emerson will leave? And if just alonso left, would we buy a Lb, or use Maatsen as cover? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Obviously there is a "chance" all of the players will leave. Try and avoid weird questions.}

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Oct 2019 14:25:49
Fair enough, thanks for answering ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Oct 2019 02:27:55
I like Chilwell but not at the asking price Leicester will ask for anyway, they’ll be after 60 million or plus and he’s not even world class.

I’ve seen Alex Telles has like a €40m buyout clause we should be all over that in January. Alonso has been playing better but he’s not the answer long term.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Oct 2019 18:25:51
I am loving the new Alonso (and Willian) under Lampard so far as something has clearly improved in their game; and if Emerson continue with his good performance and none of them (ie Alonso and Emerson) pushes to leave, I see no need for Ben Chilwell (then we can then wait for Maasten to develop) .

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Oct 2019 18:52:14
Nice to see another one Is fooled by willian’s purple patch. He’ll be awful again very soon.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Oct 2019 22:31:25
I feel it's not a 'purple patch' cos there are some things that he (Willian) is doing at the moment (in the field of play) that he wasn't doing before now; I think this can only mean that there's been a major shift in his head or Lampard has showed him a better, which he's clearly taking. I think if Willian keeps doing what he does the way he's doing it at the moment, he might surprise you too.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Oct 2019 12:08:03
I’ve thought about him surprising me for 4 years and he hasn’t stayed consistent.

Wouldn't bother believing that rubbish, same with the Neymar links too. I do think it's clear that we may try and get an experienced forward for the starting 11 in the summer though. Would personally rather get Sancho, don't know whether we have any interest in him but it makes soo much sense to go for him. Hopefully we are and we see the rumours intensify once we get near January🤞.

when Chelsea's ban is either lifted or completed in your opinion what positions are in need of strengthening first through the transfer market. I believe CB would be one. i appreciate your thoughts.

Canadian Chelsea fan.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea are keen on a number of youngsters but no decision has been taken at this time about who they will look to add. Much will depend on who is leaving. The club will sit down, with advisors and members of the scouting and coaching staff to make decisions - perhaps in November.}

Thanks Ed appreciate your response.

30 Sep 2019 22:35:53
Canadian, i have said I don’t think we will sign any players in the January window.

IMO given our current performances I don’t think a centre half is going to be a priority.

I think there will be decisions to make about certain players. Pedro and Willian are two that spring to mind.

If we do let one or both of them go I think the winger from Ajax could be our target.

Agree0 0Disagree

01 Oct 2019 00:41:59
Thanks Tom i appreciate your imput. i say CB simply because i worry about Rudiger's injury.

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Sep 2019 23:05:06
ed any chance of any names of younger players we are keen on? thanks alot.

{Ed002's Note -
Youcef Atal (RB/RM and a hat trick at LW) but not really ready for the step up

Mohamed Akandji (CB) Stoke kiddie for U20s and loan
Benoit Badiashile (CB) interest in taking him in the future but also interest from elsewhere - may drop interest

Bruno Guimaraes (DM/CM) Shakhtar Donetsk have been in discussions with the representative of the player (who they have a close relationship to) and Athletico Paranaense but the asking price is proving to be a major stumbling block. Napoli, Chelsea, Marseille (as a Gustavo replacement) and Kashima Antlers (who are competely out of the picture) have also a declared interest. Chelsea have discussed taking the player in 2020 with his club.} Giuliano Bertolucci is his rep.

Ben Chrisene (M) also wanted by Southampton and Liverpool have watched him but the club are planning on integrating Conor Gallagher (CM) in to the first team when he returns from loan at Charlton.
Romario Baro (RM)

Giovanni (AM) Santos kiddie wanted by Braga and Ajax - maybe one for 2020

Isaac Lihadji (RW) kiddie from Marseille who is attracting interest of several leading sides with Barcelona constantly pushing the lady from Marseille about the player - unlikely
Raphinha (RW) Chelsea, Leicester and Fiorentina have been looking at the Sporting player but he will join Rennes and will be watched further - unlikely.
Florinel Coman (LW/F) plays for FCSB in Romania - WP situation unclear

Emrehan Gedikli (S) Chelsea wanted the kid (16) in exchange for another player but BL said no - he would stay in Germany until 2021 - will be watched
There are two other German kiddies the club would not want named
Joe Gelhardt (F) Wigan kiddie}

02 Oct 2019 00:29:23
Ed002, thanks for the super interesting information as usual and good to see Frank and co. already planning to integrate people like Gallagher who can be real assets. On the topic of younger players, I think you said at one point Reinier Jesus had been a target for us, City, Real Madrid and most of Europe- safe to assume interest in him has faded? And also interest in Leon Bailey is now gone?

{Ed002's Note - Forget both.}

Hi Ed001 / Ed002,

Long time no post.

Do Chelsea have an interest in Sancho?

Do Chelsea have interest in Rice?

Thanks for your time.

{Ed002's Note - Have you been playing on Twitter again to come up with these random names? There would be about zero chance that Rice would move to Chelsea and there is of course no interest in wither.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

29 Sep 2019 16:07:45
Good I don’t want Rice here anyway.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Sep 2019 22:58:18
No I don’t use twitter. I just thought they might be two players that Chelsea would be interested in. I thought Rice would be unlikely but then he would be the third English midfielder to move to Chelsea from West Ham in recent times, so it wouldn’t be unprecedented.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Sep 2019 23:40:30
But you want Sancho here 'anyway'? 😜.

Can we have a little transfer news ed and or update on transfer ban, if any.

{Ed002's Note - The only update on the transfer ban is that the CAS hearing has not been scheduled in the latest list. There has been some background discussion but there is nothing from that which can be published. there are a bunch of younger players the club are keen on but they also have a bunch of their own already. There will be a get together at some point to identify where efforts will focus from the names that they have. As for January, typically clubs do not plan to buy, choice is limited as clubs don't want to sell and it can be disruptive.}

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Sep 2019 15:36:20
Our January signings haven’t been overly successful anyway and I don’t want us to panic buy. The likes of Sancho and Koulibaly won’t be available then but we could strike an agreement for the summer. What I’d like is to see us get another quality full back in which could be achievable. Alex Telles or Youcef Atal won’t be playing champions league so I’d target one of them and get rid of Alonso.

Agree0 0Disagree

Ed002 don't want to jump the gun but are things getting better on Chelsea page or are you still getting greif.

{Ed002's Note - There is no grief because the discussion centres around the games rather than transfers gianfranco (if that is your real name). Whilst that continues I can safely sneak out a little information.}

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Sep 2019 23:38:23
Thank you, Ed!

ed001 is there truth that we are inteested in atal and will bid once we are able to sign players thanks.

{Ed001's Note - interest is there yes, but I can't say if there will be a bid.}

13 Sep 2019 14:13:28
Won't it be weird if we sold Azpi, Ed? If Willian, Giroud, Azpi, Alonso all leave, Pedro, Jorginho, Kante and Caballero will be the only senior players left.

{Ed001's Note - I wouldn't expect him to be sold just yet, but clubs can always buy senior players.}

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Sep 2019 14:19:45
Aah I see. Personally, I think we will try for a winger, a LB, a CB and a Striker + Sancho if he is available.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Sep 2019 17:01:30
LB/ LWB- Gaya; RB/ RWB- Atal; CF- Icardi/ Mousa Dembele; LW/ RW- Bailey/ Neres/ Sancho (left footer preferable) ; CB- Ruben Dias/ Upacameco; DM/ CM- Bruno Guimaraes/ Florentino Luis - won't be a bad addition to any squad.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Sep 2019 17:19:00
You won't win anything with this squad.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Sep 2019 17:28:12
Save money and keep Emerson. been brilliant so far. And use Maatsen as understudy. bailey / Neres haven’t kicked on really and Neres is a show pony and would get folded up in the prem league. Icardi is trouble and his wife’s trouble from all accounts, Dias / upcameco would be brilliant, DM I don’t know about this Brazilian kid or read anything. Ruben neves is still very young and is close to cesc with long passes, or the future star aouar would be probably as expensive as neves buying from a rival team, sancho is the must buy. the hazard replacement. not as quick as people make out but 1v1 is world class and end product to match, young English and would no doubt adapt well with Mount RLC CHO James etc, striker is dembele all day long, and team of
Atal ( James )
Rudiger ( Zouma )
Upcameco ( Christensen )
Emerson ( Maatsen )

Kante ( Ampadu )
Aouar ( neves )



Add to that mount / RLC / Tammy to attacking options or 3 midfielders or whatever would compete, plus Steve Holland back or someone in back room to really work on defence side of things. Young team and exciting, but £££,

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Sep 2019 20:11:51
My ins:



Willian (Keep Pedro as 4th choice for cup games.
Van Ginkel

Senior or not I’d sell Azpi if we can be ruthless and get a good fee for him. Sell the rest of the loan players too and get them off the books for good. It’s good to have quality players in each position.

My XI:


Atal Rudiger Romagnoli Emerson

Kante Jorginho Loftus-Cheek

Sancho Dembele Hudson-Odoi

The new "squad" suggestion above pretty much undoes all the hard work currently being done by lamps and Morris to blood these youngsters in.

do you really think if any of them start making the first 11 then get bumped down into the subs bench for young foreigners is the way we should go? we've got youngsters proving their worth here, which is what most fans including myself have wanted for sometime and already you're dismantling it.

Tomori Geuhi Zouma at CB. i think we are good for a while, Rudiger can more than mentor these lads in defence. Unless any of them decline seriously like Christensen has. We need monsters at the back at to me he comes across too nice.

Reece James is Azpi's successor that's clear as day and he's going to be some player. yet you've put him on the bench. Azpi can still do a job at centre back so there is even more experienced cover there.

I'd love Chillwell at Chelsea personally for LB and i think that move might happen just hope the fee isn't too daft. Emerson has been great. I expected Alonso to move on in the summer but im certain he won't be here next season.

The hardest decision is the central midfield. we have players now abundance and with RLC still to come back which i think will be the end of Barkley. I don't think Kante will be with us much longer (season or two left if that) .

Pulisic is and will continue to really struggle with us. super cup final i thought he was great but he's fizzled somewhat and I'm conscious that his eagerness to return early has played its part in that - i don't know.

You've also demoted Abraham at the moment he's scoring goals, yes he's missed a few chances but he's scored 7 goals, one shy of aguero and I'm not suggesting that he is of his level - but to have an opinion like that (which you are entitled to of course) after only 6 games into the season i feel is ridiculous.

Batsuayhi i feel has always been unlucky with us, he knows where the goal is and he does score goals when given the opportunity.

Giround i expect to move on at the end of the season.

the post above suggests a complete overhaul and i really think you're over thinking it. we just need a few additions unless of course someone leaves. There's already been massive changes, let's just see how this season pans out first, aye?
