Ed002 says on Everton page we are planning to sell Tomori- my bet is Burnley to replace Tarkowski or Aston Villa.

We also have Clarke-Salter and Guehi at CB so plenty of good players coming through!

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Jul 2019 17:01:41
Clarke Salter is nowhere near good enough and never will be. Personally I’d like us to keep Tomori especially as Lampard knows him well. I think he’s got potential.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jul 2019 18:34:43
After Lamps has evaluated the entire squad it maybe the right time to thin out our loan army.

If it’s Zouma, Tamori or Salter, I just hope it’s Lamps and his team who make the final decision.

I’m more interested in how Lamps will set up his side and how flexible he will be from match to match and during matches!

{Ed002's Note - I am not so sure you understand how things work. Over the past three weeks there have been numerous meetings with other clubs including Twente, Atletico, Metz, Atalanta, Bayern Munich, Torino, PSG, Cercle Brugge, Real Madrid, Hoffenheim and others as the club has already sold or released 26 players.}

We can't keep them all hoping that they will someday be good enuf for us . Sometimes we have to take a call and let them achieve their potential elsewhere.

I never felt Salah was made for us . Ever . don't feel it now either.

Just my opinion.

Ktbffh.

Good luck to the 26 players who have left. I hope you all have successful careers and I’m sure that one or two will come back to haunt us!

Agree1 0Disagree

Did Ed002 mean a sale or a loan though for Tomori?

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.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

06 Jul 2019 19:34:15
And Loftus Cheek has signed, up Chelsea! Hudson Odoi next- hopefully.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2019 19:14:57
Ruben Loftus Cheek has agreed a new long term deal at Chelsea. Signs of good things to come.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

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

Agree0 0Disagree

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!

Roweycfc; that's football of nowadays.

Agree0 0Disagree

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.

Agree0 0Disagree

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.

Agree0 0Disagree

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

Agree0 0Disagree

01 Jul 2019 17:13:51
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.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

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.

Looking forward to the pre-season games.

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

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Jun 2019 11:30:45
Looks like Lampard will be announced tomorrow. Apparently Derby have been close to their FFP limits recently, their financial year starts on the 1st July and the compensation will assist them for the year ahead.

I would think you are right. I think its nailed on now.

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.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

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.

Agree0 0Disagree

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.

Agree1 0Disagree

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.

Agree0 0Disagree

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

Agree1 0Disagree

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,

Agree0 0Disagree

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) .

Agree0 0Disagree

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,

Agree0 0Disagree

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.

Agree0 0Disagree

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.

Agree0 0Disagree

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.

Agree0 0Disagree

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.

Agree0 0Disagree

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,

Agree0 0Disagree

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.

Agree0 0Disagree

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

Agree0 0Disagree

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.

Agree0 0Disagree

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

27 Jun 2019 16:12:19
Interesting couple of days for Chelsea!. Lampard to be announced soon, Jay Dasilva moving to Bristol city, Juan Castillo with a U turn and may sign a new contract and now we're close to signing Kovacic. I expect Castillo's decision would likely be due to Lampard and Morris's arrival and the new supposed direction we're going in. Would like him to be involved next season, ideally i wanted Dasilva but i don't blame him for leaving and no doubt Castillo has bags of potential.

Excited to see him during pre-season if he does sign the contract. Emerson and Castillo as our fullback options sounds pretty good to me. As for Kovacic i like the move, i know a lot of people don't rate him but personally i think he's a solid player. Plus we're playing a lot of games next season and for £44m which includes the bonuses is a fair price. Also seems like Reece James didn't need surgery on his ankle and his recovery's going well, music to my ears that.

As always great post LB90. Things are looking optimistic.

Agree3 0Disagree

27 Jun 2019 21:47:03
That they are. This season has got me excited already. Think we will finally see our youth players get the chance they deserve. Plus, Lampard and Morris (though not the most experienced) is one of the most exciting appointments in the Roman era.

Agree3 0Disagree

28 Jun 2019 14:22:53
Yep, could be a good week.

Lampard and Morris in.

Hudson-Odoi and Castillo (by all accounts Alonso wants out so Castillo could get an opportunity) sign long term contracts and Kovacic signs permanently.

All of a sudden we have a squad jam packed with young talent (Ampadu, James, Castillo, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Abraham etc. ) and there's a clear path to the first team squad for those in the youth set up and out on loan.

Agree2 0Disagree

26 Jun 2019 21:14:26
Good luck to jay da Silva after making his move permanent to Bristol city.

Yep, I would like to add my best wishes to the lad. I’m sure he will have a very successful career.

27 Jun 2019 16:13:05
Bit disappointed to see him leave if I'm honest, hope he does well at Bristol City.

Agree2 0Disagree

27 Jun 2019 16:14:57
A strange decision - I can only think that Chels are confident that Castillo will sign a new contract.

25 Jun 2019 12:50:25
Derby give Chelsea permission to speak with Lampard. Should all be sorted out, officially, soon now.

Onwards and upwards now “J”.

Winning the Premiership will be easy!

As I’ve said before this is the time of year we can all have dreams and be super confident.

COME on MY MIGHTY BLUES.

TomB, it looks like you are our Captain America on the site: Fearless, never backs down and can fight all day. Your optimism is really infectious (and that's very good) .

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Jun 2019 14:59:54
Haha Obinna, this is the time of year when even Spurs, Arsenal or West Ham Supporters can dream. Or, in there case totally deluded.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Jun 2019 15:10:10
Not that I want to trample all over your dreams Tom but (spoiler warning - I'm going to) I don't see us challenging for the title this season.

I think a healthy dose of reality is going to be needed, both on the terraces and in the boardroom. It'll be a massive suprise if 2019/ 20 is anything but a tough, hard slog of a season.

Top six, whilst challenging for the top four throughout, would be a decent start to a rebuilding project as far as the league is concerned. I don't expect United, Spurs or Arsenal to be much better than us but top six will be tight again. Lampard shouldn't have the sack hanging over him if we miss out on top four in year 1. Getting to the knockout stages of the Champions League and doing well in one of the other cups would also be good.

Real progress this season will see Hudson-Odoi becoming a focal point of the attack and signing a new contract. Loftus-Cheek becoming a. consistenr performer in midfield whilst Abraham, James and Mount break into the first team.

I'd imagine a lot will want silverware in the cabinet more than youth team players on the pitch. But in the long run there's no reason we can't have both. It might just mean a season or two of them developing to the required level. It's time for the machine that is the Chelsea Youth system.

Agree2 0Disagree

25 Jun 2019 15:37:08
J, at this time of year it’s safe to have dreams.

All opinions should be valued and evaluated but my dreams will remain intact, at least until October!

Agree2 0Disagree

25 Jun 2019 21:02:48
Let's hope the match day supporters have a sense of reality this season.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 Jun 2019 07:53:32
It's good to have a balance between optimism and reality. I hope we do really well this season.

It's not beyond a miracle that we do really well this season given that the Lampard appointment will boost the playing squad and more importantly the fans. If we can get some momentum going then who knows what can happen. We still have a very good squad and who knows we may have a few young gems I. e. mount, ampadu etc who perform fantastically. Also Lampard may have a positive influence on Barkley. 1 thing for sure without Hazard we will see a unit come out to play every weekend and not look for the big man in every game.

However, there is always the thought that Lampard is still a rookie. Petr Cech who will be the link with the playing staff and board is inexperienced and will he be able to put aside friendship . I hope so.

I am more inclined to believe that we will have a great season.

Frank Lampard to Chelsea confirmed! He will sign a deal until 2022!

- @NicoSchira

I trust this source FYI.





This was tweet by Simon Phillips who he says he trusts this guy. Either way, it's clearly happening. Just a matter of time.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

It hasn't been reported anywhere else. but you're right, I expect Frank to be our Gaffer by the end of the week.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2019 13:34:53
Harry Redknapp is a pretty good source. I think that's more than enough to confirm it's very very very likely.
