Ed002 with napoli looking like getting conte, reports that he wants lukaku, is there a deal will will look to be done with lukaku in A deal for Osimhen?

{Ed002's Note - Napoli are keen to keep the deals separate.}

Ed002 - are they interested in Lukaku? :)

Read between the lines Emil!

Okay RBD!

Agree0 0Disagree

28 May 2024 17:01:07
Ed002 so something like £90m for Osimhen and £35m for Lukakau? And would we still be as keen on osimhen with maresca joining? Or does it not matter who the manager is, osimhen is the major striker target?

{Ed002's Note - ignore the numbers. Nothing changes because of the coach.}

Poch likely to go United, rumours of Gallagher and chalobah going United will be off the charts.

A nightmate scenario for me at least if it happens Matt.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2024 12:29:04
Ed002 looks like from reports it is going to be maresca and we are going to talk to leicester now, is that what your hearing and what is your opinion on him?

{Ed002's Note - Enzo Maresca (C) Heas rejected an opportunity to join Seville. Chelsea and Manchester City have spoken to his agent who has told Chelsea that EM would be open to joining the club. Chelsea have asked Leicester if they can speak with him. He already knows he was not first choice for Chelsea and knows he won't be for Manchester City when the time comes.}

Seems a gamble but I guess the club is probs thinking along the same lines of Arteta as one of Peps prodigy’s being very successful.

I hope it works out and I can eat my words although I am not overly confident as feel that any manager would have won the league with that Leicester side.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Guardiola or Arteta.}

Agree1 0Disagree

27 May 2024 15:40:39
Ed 002 may I ask what your opinion is on him?

{Ed002's Note - I have never met him I am afraid.}

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2024 21:21:53
I might have phrased my question incorrectly, because you just answered my question on the banter-page answering one of Standard's questions :)

Thanks for all the replies in recent days. Greatly appreciated!

Agree0 0Disagree

More likely easy gossip, but a story from this evening is our board / directors really like maresca but egbahli has taken a shinning to de zerbi and wants him,

IF this is true then he is a massive problem for this club, boehly always came across well in interviews and nothing he said or spoke about has been the case for Chelsea, maybe it's egbhali who is the ego getting what he wants?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

27 May 2024 00:39:09
Think Boehly would of kept Poch, from what I have read it looks like Egbhali is pulling the stings either way it would be much better if it was one guy with the call on the next manager.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2024 01:17:24
I'm more concerned about whoever the 'advisors' are and how they still have a job. Shambles after shambles after shambles.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2024 06:37:14
As long as it’s a constructive discussion and they all walk away excepting the collective decision, I can’t see it being a problem it’s generally how board of directors work.

It would be nice to think that who your manager is becomes successful but of course there are no guarantees.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2024 08:02:10
Just wish there were consequences for all who make bad decisions Tom. If parting ways with Poch means getting a coach. can't call him manager any more perhaps. who doesn't get us Top 4 then whoever wanted him out should leave or be sidelined in the 'structure' decision making. But obviously I'm being naive.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2024 08:09:25
Would admit that I don't know who is best to replace Poch but de Zerbi at least more EPL experienced and has worked with Caicedo, Colwill and Mudryk. Brighton season far worse than previous one but could be down in part surely to loss of key players. Maresca only won 6 of last 14 games as Leicester manager.

Still if we don't do well this season it will doubtless be the coach fired again.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2024 09:39:57
TBH, the more I think about it I have to say I don’t have a great deal of confidence in the reported candidates, they all have question marks for me. Just like Poch last season. I’m not sure why we are in such a rush to make an appointment and why we haven’t spread the net a bit wider.

{Ed002's Note - It is not rush but a desire to add the right person.}

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2024 10:16:53
If we don’t get off to a good start next season things are going to turn toxic extremely quickly.

I agree JBS if a new coach comes in and we finish 10th let's say its time to part ways with the advisors/ decision makers.

Our squad if fully fit is easily good enough for top 4.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 May 2024 16:51:24
According to the bookmakers we pretty much have a new manage. RDZ is now 4/ 7.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

26 May 2024 17:11:03
Lets wait and see Tom, a few, days ago Mourhino was nailed on.

I will say that if RDZ takes ov3r he will be gone in 6 months. He is the poorest choice possible, sooner have Gladys the tea lady than him.

The question is will the fans even take to him.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2024 17:22:54
Bill, do you know Gladys? She lives down the North End Road and has worked for the club for 50 years. A lovely lady and big Jose fan.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2024 20:29:05
Annoyingly Tom he is the one I particularly didn’t want. Think he is definitely a B Tech Graham Potter.

Current owners have clearly not learnt from their previous mistakes. How are the sporting directors at the club still in a job? Their performance has been apalling and each year they surely have fallen short of their targets.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2024 21:20:11
RDZ is favourite to be Man City next manager as well.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2024 21:38:00
Whitey, I agree. I would prefer the Leicester or Ipswich manager out of the three likely candidates left in the running, with slight preference for McKenna.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2024 00:43:17
Same order as me Tom would have Thomas Franck above all three of them, not really sure why apart from the fact a young inexperienced squad needs a more experienced manager.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 May 2024 10:17:44
Moresca and Thomas Frank now favourites it is changing every day now.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2024 14:30:58
Hi Ed, are you able to share who was/ is our first choice is for the manger position? Based on various reports it seems like the list consists of Mckenna, Maresca, Frank and De Zerbi.

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant as he is not moving to Chelsea. I would likely discount McKenna from your list and there are other options.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

26 May 2024 16:07:20
There's so much media reports, I don't have a clue who it could be. I only assumed are first choice was either kompany, or motta or stuttgart manager, as Ed said, he won't be coming to Chelsea. Mckenna seems a no now. So according to reports its maresca, frank, rdz and possibly amorin. Hopefully it will be sorted this week and we can get behind the manager, look forward to signings and style of play.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2024 16:08:28
De Zerbi is the chosen one according to the most of the twitter.

Are there any other options?

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2024 17:12:18
Omirin, Frank much better options than RDZ.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2024 18:51:12
Thanks Ed, appreciate the update. Such a crazy domino effect with managers at the moment. I'd have loved either Hoeneß or Flick, but would also be happy with Amorim or Xavi but neither seen to be in the running. Tuchel would've also been nice, but understand that ship has well and truly sailed.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2024 18:22:05
Alonso was apparently the choice but his staying at Leverkusen then possibly Madrid.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2024 10:05:57
Ed002 rumors that we are going to try for olise again? Any truth and are you still of the opinion he will move elesewhere or do we have a chance? Thankd Seems overkill with how many rw/ ams we already have and have comiing in.

{Ed002's Note - Michael Olise (RW/AM) PSG and Manchester City want him as cover although the departure of Mahrez last summer will mean more opportunities now, but the RW position is effectively Foden's. If de Bruyne or Silva were to depart, he becomes an option again. Crystal Palace has no real interest in selling but know that Chelsea want to take Olise back to Stamford Bridge and Olise has made clear that one day he wants to be playing with his brother. Down the list of AM players Chelsea want but they will again perhaps push for him. His representative has said no other clubs have made any formal approach for Olise. Arsenal and Manchester United have also regularly sent scouts and he may end up first choice for one of them. Liverpool can be discounted. Will be available in the summer when a significant release clause will need to be met.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

26 May 2024 10:23:09
If we signed Olise think we’d have to move Sterling, Madueke and Angelo on. Maybe even Hutchinson with Paez and Estebao eventually joining. I love Olise but think we need a quality CB and a striker before other areas.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 May 2024 12:14:50
Reported £60m released clause,

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2024 23:20:46
Ed's I know the report on Jose that you gave just wondering if he's in the running at all, I don't mind one of these new young managers but the ones in line am not really impressed with the Leicester manager is linked with us due to his background with Pepe and doing half ok with Leicester City but I would love him home.

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold any hope for it. The club cannot get their first choice and are trying to cut down the short list further, but right now he is not on it and heading elsewhere.}

Believable2 0Unbelievable

24 May 2024 23:57:55
Has the first choice gone / going elsewhere?

{Ed002's Note - Not available.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2024 00:12:47
Was McKenna the 1st choice Ed?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree1 0Disagree

25 May 2024 13:54:05
Thomas Frank - why is this chewing gum addict even on the list?

Will we be adding some new names to the list? The list is not looking that great at this moment in time.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2024 11:46:18
Thank You.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2024 12:39:24
First choice was likely Sebastian Hoeneß (Stuttgart) .

Agree0 0Disagree

25 May 2024 11:54:42
Shak, it's going to be Maresca!

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2024 13:31:12
Odds on Mourihno for next Chelsea manager has gone from 40/ 1 to 3/ 1 is there something we don't know?!

Believable0 0Unbelievable

24 May 2024 13:57:10
Yes, it is a good example why there are no poor bookies.

Agree1 0Disagree

24 May 2024 14:15:43
Gone back out to 10/ 1. The new fav is the Leicester bloke.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2024 13:59:38
Really good young manager with regressive tactics. Just the coach the club are looking for, not.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2024 16:51:22
Agree Bill1955. Unlike CFC. Leicester - although ending up champions by one point from Ipswich - had a very up and down end to their season winning only 6 of their last 14 league games (and losing to us in the FA Cup of course) .

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2024 20:42:59
Couldn’t agree more Bill please avoid him and De Zerbi like the plague!

Agree0 0Disagree

23 May 2024 16:07:45
Ed002 with our sporting talks and how we wanted him before, do you see us going for amorim? hasn't been reported that he is on the list but we seem to of liked him before? Thanks so much.

{Ed002's Note - An option but not at the top and probably not top 3.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

23 May 2024 17:00:35
Ed

With his experience, what's happened to drop him down the list of candidates?

{Ed002's Note - It is the club taking advice and refining the short list.}

Agree0 0Disagree

23 May 2024 17:21:46
Thank youbED, much appreciated.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 May 2024 22:22:14
I could be wrong, but there’s a lot of smoke that he’s the unknown 4th choice. It would make sense as Sporting are playing Porto Sunday in the Portuguese cup final so might not want it coming out.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2024 08:38:40
De zerbi will be our next manager.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 May 2024 08:59:05
Goodness, I hope mot hw is too confrontational, he will be fighting with the owners within a short space of time.

Why did Brighton not put up a fight to keep him.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 May 2024 08:30:22
Hi Ed, is McKenna a real possibility or is this media speculation?

{Ed002's Note - He is on the list of options.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

23 May 2024 16:44:51
Reports are that his the front runner for the Job. Do you reckon he will be a good fit at Chelsea Ed?

{Ed002's Note - He is by all accounts he is well liked but I don’t know him so can’t really comment.}
