Ed002 any truth we are interested in aurelien Tchouamen thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Aurelien Tchouameni (DM/CM) Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea have all declared an interest in the player who would be more affordable than their preferred choices, but Monaco are not looking to sell this summer. Rennes will also look to him if Eduardo Camavinga leaves. Borussia Dortmund are interested in upgrading Axel Witsel and have looked at him as have other. If the season in France is cancelled then there is a chance that he could be available.

He is simply a player on a long list of players being looked at and considered by these clubs.}

Ed, is your report a bit dated? Since you talked about Ligue 1 getting cancelled which happened last season.

{Ed002's Note - No, it is bang up to date.}

a question for ed02, whilst i've given up hope of seeing van ginkel play for chelsea he was always a player i wanted to see do well and having seen he managed to get onto the pitch for 5 minutes recently, is he likely to remain with psv beyond this season?

{Ed002's Note - PSV would very much like him to and it will be discussed towards the end of the season.}

Ed002 ang truth Barcelona want marcos alonso to replace firpo if he goes milan thanks.

{Ed002's Note - There have been discussions with Inter and Atletico over Alonso but no offers. I am not aware of an approach by Barcelona yet but they have been interested in the past and there is agreement over Firpo and just paperwork to do.}

Any other out goings other than Tomori ed?

{Ed002's Note - Three others have already gone and discussions are continuing in regards to other players.}

Other than his pace I never thought alonso was that bad he was really good under conte.

Any incomings you expect, Ed? At the youth level?

{Ed002's Note - Not much will happen in January.}

I’d have been happy enough with alonso if I couldn’t outpace him.

I still maintain Frank will be gone in first week of February said this a few weeks ago
The problem I have is 1 his stubbornness to play 433 it's clear we haven't the players for this formation and trying different players in those positions just for the sake of it does seem like a lack of ideas going forward
We are short in midfield with this system so why play it
Havertz clearly isn't a 8 he's a 10
Rudiger over zouma just for the sake of it Frank adhered to this in his interview
Nearly every poster on here said werner has to play this game to stretch there defence with the ball over the top
Yet he played Abraham who is clearly not cfc standard Frank and never will be that's why we got rid of batshuyi same qualityi and you finished with giroud last year
Im all for bringing in youth if there good enough and Mount James cho are the only 3 who are going to make it jury is out on gilmour my only problem with mount is I don't think they have the right players to play him to his strengths at the minute he likes to press hi up the pitch and is easily bypassed not his fault all the time but others need to sit and they don't I don't think he knows his best position could be 10 8 or 6 imo stick to 1 and become a legend of the club as his heart is clearly with Chelsea and that's ffing great
Reece James up until yesterday was my player of the season but he looked so disinterested and lacking belief in the system this might have something to do with cho ahead of him he has no desire to track back and help leaving James very exposed something sarri said because he isn't hazard yet we're you can make excuses because he's so good going forward cho is in my eyes still potential and nothing more
Gilmour haven't seen enough of him just glimpses against Liverpool last year he was superb but yet to see it again but hasn't played much size and lack of pace is a worry
Havertz is such a talent at the 10 role he could be world class if given the right position and support but forcing him to play number 8 to fit a system is criminal and a massive lack of respect for a players talents or complete arrogance and stubbornness in your system
Werner is clearly a player who is suited to ball over top or a counter attack type player not a procession based cf who will hold it up that's giroud so why play him in a team that plays procession football out of position and in a team that doesn't suit his style what's that going to do to his confidence
Pulisic and ziyech are special talents who are out of form with injuries fitness and confidence just haven't clicked I'd say this is 50% lbad luck and 50% bad management because chopping and changing there place in the team builds lack of confidence and lack of understanding with the players around them as they also change every match to so no cohesion in front four or back 6
There doesn't seem to be a team playing together just 11 players running around coz there getting paid
Arteta klopp pep rodgers and many others
are managers who are building or built a great team and a great spirit we're the manager believes in the players 100%and the players believe in the manager 100% we have neither which isn't good for a top team
Silva last 2 games looks like what am I doing here expression on his face so frustrated and bemused at what is going on around him
We have a world class cb
World class midfielder
World class ten
World class striker in werner and even giroud World Cup winner
Are you telling me these players aren't capable of beating a top 10 side with top talent around them in James chillwell mount zouma Dave ziyech
Come on its ridiculous
We have a surplus of great cbs play a system that suits that even play christensen in a two midfield with kante play on counter attack
Play 3 at back with kante as protection
Play 41 41 442 352 anything that's suits the players at your disposal and adapt
Rather than be stubborn to your system at the detriment of such great talent just because you want declan rice
Smell the nescafe Frank before it's to late
And your in lockdown with the rest of us watching it on telly.

Interesting post and I agree something has to change.

I would also and obviously prefer it sooner rather than later but change means different things to so many people.

Take my view about Rudiger. I think he is a total liability and if other players are fit he should never start but last night with Zouma with injured and Christensen coming back from injury, the options were limited. This is just my view and I fully appreciate other people’s views will be totally different from mine.

A change in manager doesn’t guarantee success no more than selecting James or Christensen in midfield would guarantee a cure fo our problems.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jan 2021 14:02:35
Yes rudiger is a liability which strengthens my point then play 3 with Azpi if there is a weakness in team then protect it that's just basic stuff
Yes I agree Tom change doesn't mean instant success but it's been very clear for a year this isn't a work progress this is just wrong man wrong time
Wrong decision simple am I sad I'm gutted big Frank hasn't been up to it one of the greats of the club struggling is sad to see but I support Chelsea football club not a dream scenario Roy of the rovers ending
gutted absolutely 100%
But realistic to
Ktbffh chaps we will be back soon sadly not under this current setup I fear I'm not even confident of beating Luton haha chins up.

The introduction of young talent to a squad in Lamps first season and achieved what most people said was unlikely, Champions League Football

His second season is almost a reverse of his first season as he is introducing new players to young players and a few players who have been with the club for a prolonged period.

Both in their own way created problems and I definitely thought the process this season would have gone a lot better but I say again there is NO guarantee a change of manager would improve the results.

I want change but primarily I want a change in performance and results. Change guarantees nothing.

As a club we have some good and not so good examples of Change.

It there was a plan and think there was I hope our club sees it to a conclusion. I hope Lamps is at the helm to see it through but I do NOT want the plan to change.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jan 2021 14:38:35
Wondering why the first week in Feb rather than the last week in Jan?

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jan 2021 14:54:14
Change is as good as a rest as they say
And if there was a plan I hope they stick to it but not to the detriment of the club and if there was a plan who's plan or project was it Romans or franks or both as Ed01 said tuchel talks a good game maybe Frank did
Some plans get changed for the better no shame in it
Maybe the plan would work better with a different guy or women or them or they for the pc crowd at the helm
The point is and will be Frank has been given all the tools and has yet after 18 months or if your picky 19 games known how to use them
No other manager in top half has got the tools and resources Frank has been handed and still hasn't a clue on how to get the best out of his team.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jan 2021 15:25:10
If buts and maybes don’t cut it for me!

Thera are NO guarantees that any potential new manager would carry on or be willing to carry out the existing plan if there is such a plan.

No one can say things will absolutely get better and as a club we know change doesn’t always bring success.

As I mentioned much earlier today. I think an announcement could well be imminent. So this will probably be all academic.

Do you really think that Tom I think anther 2 prem games but if it's sooner its sooner if it's later it's later but I don't think hell be given another season even if by some miracle he gets top 4.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jan 2021 16:04:38
Christiansen is not the answer in dm. When playing centre back he is too weak, as shown by the goal vs aston villa.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jan 2021 16:06:28
Like everyone else I haven’t got a clue if Lamps will be our manager today, tomorrow, next month or next year.

I am pretty sure something will happen very soon.

If Lamps manages Top 4 this season I would extremely confident about him our manager next season.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jan 2021 04:42:39
Gola I agree with I has to be sooner than later sto save our season ton change doesn't gaurrantee success but neither this embarrassing continuity. u would like manager like Henites whivjniws the club and the leagueaneirbw lwelllast timhe as given think eeim Cha g vwuth young layers of Oscar, hazard and mata I e werepenetrating defenf c e lwuth fluidity . he really understand splayers strengths unlike naive to ank continue to play them out of positions. rwfa please.

I personally believe that Lampard will get it right, if he gets given the time. I think that this is the type of season, most people thought we would of had last year and unfortunately Lampard is a victim of his own success.

The football world is very reactionary, whilst its obvious that the string of results and performances over the past month are not up to standard, the month prior to that we were in a run of 16 games unbeaten, which shows he can manage this team along with all the achievements of last season.

Being 5 points off the top 4 is not a cause for this amount of unrest.

In my opinion, trust the process, trust Frank, KTBFFH!

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jan 2021 12:22:26
Ed002 has hinted at changes in Feb - but I can't imagine that would be sacking Frank - you surely wouldn't plan to sack your manager in a month's time!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jan 2021 21:01:17
I don't think there planning it mdw
With our next three league games it could be inevitable or not depending on the results.

I agree MDW. If help for Lamps does come in it would be bizzare to then sack him.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 14:06:26
I'd love theses Haaland rumours to come true! What a signing that will be!

{Ed0666's Note - let’s hope Frank’s not around to play him on the left of midfield.

18 Jan 2021 14:09:16
Ha sorry for laughing but I have to agree with Ed. Spent 220 million this summer and our best signing has been Thiago Silva and he was free. I’m a big fan of Chilwell though and he’s been the best of the rest for me.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 14:24:21
Let’s hope is around because that will mean we have been successful.

Your post made me laugh Graham.

Not for long I’m afraid Graham but I have to say my spirits have been lifted by some of the posts on this site and that can’t be a bad thing!

18 Jan 2021 15:26:11
It's bizzare not wanting Lamps there with this amazing young team, leading them to glory.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 15:33:18
Shame as it’s a toxic place at the moment. I do admit I don’t think Frank is the man for the job but I will continue to support him. But if he does go he hasn’t helped himself. We should not be level with the likes of Southampton and West Ham. I also think the way he’s treated Havertz, CHO and Tomori has been really poor.

That’s why I wouldn’t even be excited for Haaland under Frank’s management. I hope we can turn it around tomorrow but I don’t think we’ll come away from Leicester with anything more than a draw .

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 15:41:20
Haaland. big strong fast, frank will have to accommodate around mount but would be a good DM.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 15:57:26
I think he is a Mendy replacement or maybe Dave who’s obviously past his sell buy date.

Anyway, when it happens in the summer it will be a good thing to worry about.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 19:30:59
Maybe he's the advisor to the coaching staff Ed002 was talking about
I also remember 1 of the Eds saying don't hold your breath on haaland going to chelsea.

Hello Ed002, the Athletic are linking us with Haaland.

Is he one of the strikers on Chelsea's list?

{Ed002's Note - Yes but it is very complicated.}

Believable1 0Unbelievable

18 Jan 2021 12:13:32
As always, you were right Ed002.
As per reports, Chelsea are looking at a:

Striker (like Haaland)
CB (like Simakan)
GK (like Donnarumma)
DM (like Rice)

Guess I'll just take your word for it when you say one of Bondswell (if we sign him) or Maatsen will deputise for Chilwell.

{Ed002's Note - RBL have made it pretty clear that they will not look to selling Bondswell who it seems has settled well in Germany.}

Also Simakan is going to RBL. He is replacing Upamecano which is leaving in the summer.

18 Jan 2021 13:32:17
No way we beat other top clubs you his signature.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 14:54:00
Start again!

Rice, Haaland and Upamecano all done and dusted.

Looking forward to them playing in our Champions League side next season.

That would be dream but one I shall wish for until otherwise notified.

The same Athletic that told us that Tuchel will have replaced Frank by the Fulham game!

If Tuchel gets anywhere near our club I will be bitterly disappointed. IMO he is completely overrated.

Agree Tom mate for once.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 21:15:42
Ed002, any other young LB we have taken an interest in? I heard Alejandro Balde's name being mentioned once.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea need to move three left backs on before anything else.}

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 21:37:05
Alonso, Emerson and Baba?

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 21:42:36
Almost forgot we still got Baba.

18 Jan 2021 11:10:08
Simon Johnson of The Athletic reports that Chelsea will launch a bid for Haaland this summer.

Any truth in it Ed002?

I assume if this happens, it would be the end for Tammy.

{Ed002's Note - There has been a discussion already but there is interest from elsewhere and the money involved will be huge.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

18 Jan 2021 13:32:10
Thanks ed002.
The report stated that we are willing to make him our biggest transfer, so I assume there will be a huge bid.

Any info on Tammy's future?

{Ed002's Note - I would not make any assumptions. There is nothing related TA.}

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 15:25:23
Thanks Ed002.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jan 2021 10:13:52
According to sources

AC Milan are close to agreeing a deal to sign Chelsea centre-back Fikayo Tomori on loan with a £25m option to buy.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

18 Jan 2021 10:44:46
It's done. Romano confirmed it.

Chelsea are willing to break their transfer record to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund in the summer, according to The Athletic.
