Ed002 do you know which players will or could possibly stay from the loan players from last season, hoping loftus cheek stays.

{Ed002's Note - RLC may well do but the decision has been taken on some but not others.}

Guessing gallagher loan to palace, broja stays, sarr or ampadu stay for lcb.

Agree0 0Disagree

Assuming Kounde deal happens, then I think Zouma will leave (either to Sevilla or in a separate move elsewhere) . Taking that into account, we'd have following CB options:

Silva, Rudiger, Christensen, Kounde, with Azpi also an option for the 3 at the back formations.

That's 4 natural CBs, and 1 extra player for CB if we go 3 at the back, making it 5 in that case. That's plenty. A 6th depth option should be someone like Mbuyamba probably. Sarr and Ampadu can't just stay and wait for minutes being 6th choice. They need more than that.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Jul 2021 22:14:12
Depending on what happens Ampadu could cover cdm too. there would still be little playing time though too.

What’s the point he’s not good enough or fit enough just don’t get it.

Hi is there any chance of tammy signing a new contract and staying at Chelsea
And is there even one on the table
More to the point.

{Ed002's Note - Tammy Abraham (S) Was asked to sign a contract extension but is being a bit of a prima donna and a bitch which the club won't tolerate so the club will let him leave in the summer if an acceptable offer is made. Potential option for Wolves and Aston Villa but both have preferred options. West Ham have a huge list of potential striker options and have repeatedly failed to resolve their issue - they may come in to play. Borussia Dortmund asked Chelsea about his availability but it seems unlikely even though they have missed out on their preferred option. Newcastle, Arsenal and Milan may provide a wildcard options but Milan has preferred targets. Is being offered around.}

Thanks for your swift reply and comprehensive answer its a shame he won't knuckle down and sign the contract and see what happens he is either going to end up at a middle to lower end prem side or a back up striker at a top 6 club.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Jul 2021 11:19:44
Hi Ed002, who was the player that Borussia Dortmund missed out on?

{Ed002's Note - Martin Satriano.}

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 13:58:20
Ed002, lot's of reports today that we're in talks with Sevilla for Kounde. Any truth? Thanks as always!

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

Never has a "yes" ever felt so good. Thanks for the reply Ed002.

27 Jul 2021 15:25:55
Good player and two footed. Yes please.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 15:55:34
Ed002
Would you expect one of our CB to leave and if so which one?

{Ed002's Note - Zouma.}

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 16:26:38
I think 2 feet is essential tomb.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 16:59:02
And so is a football brain and he’s got that as well.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 17:08:28
Jules Kounde is a good player but I really don’t know if I should excited about him cos I remember reading earlier that Real Madrid do have an in him; and could possibly push for him now that they’ve sold Varane.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 17:16:04
I watched him closely when we played Sevilla.

So objectively (at the time) I thought he looked like a class act.

Young also.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 17:20:52
Nathswindon, I’ve still got a recording of that match, I will have to have a closer look at what he was like against the Champions of Europe.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 16:08:21
Thanks Ed002
I thought so he doesn't fit into a back three very well and isn't too comfortable on the ball.
Tremendous character though who will do very well at another club in a back four.

{Ed002's Note - Zouma is a good player, reliable and gets on with everyone. There will be many at the club who will be sad to see him leave.}

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 16:20:15
Ed, do you still expect Christensen and Rudiger to get new contracts?

{Ed002's Note - I am not interested in contracts.}

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 16:24:01
Is there any clubs with firm interest in Zouma Ed? I’d imagine there would be as were overstocked with centre backs right now and that’s not including James who can play RCB.

{Ed002's Note - Kurt Zouma (CB) Will be available in the summer but the interest of Spurs went with Mr Mourinho. Maybe Roma will be interest or perhaps there is still interest from Everton.}

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 17:13:38
The pros out weigh the clubs concerns he is too small? Only seen bits, seems really decent, only really seen his highlights on ball farther than defending lol cheers Ed for updates.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 19:01:36
Really short for a CB though.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 19:03:17
I'll probably also watch again.

Will be interested to hear your thoughts.

I remember that he was said to be a little 'lightweight' but I thought he looked strong and very comfortable coming out with the ball.

I'm delighted that this is looking likely.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 20:01:35
Doesn't surprise me at all regarding Zouma. I'll be really sad to see him leave if it happens. He's been my favorite player for years now.

Always seems to be happy, backing his teammates on the pitch and seems to love playing for Chelsea. I'll miss him a lot, truly. Hope he doesn't join a PL rival though if he goes.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 20:43:22
Can I just say lads, Sarr has looked more than useful tonight.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Jul 2021 00:31:16
Zoumas run around so many players can't remember the opposition but it would of been best cb goal ever and he fluffed his shot but such a good memory of such a likeable guy.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Jul 2021 06:35:16
Good bit of business if we get Kounde, he is a decent player.
But it is also sad that we are selling Zouma and Guehi before that. It probably means Ampadu will leave as well.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 13:52:53
Chelsea have opened talks for the transfer of Jules Kounde of Sevilla apparently, who is open to the move.

{Ed002's Note - It has been going on a while.}

Believable1 0Unbelievable

27 Jul 2021 14:11:21
Thanks Ed002.

27 Jul 2021 14:54:36
Haha love it Ed.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 19:11:54
Ed002 . Do u think JK will do well in the premiere league.
He is shorter than your average CB here in the PL.

What do ED001, what do u make of the player. Your insights into how he will adapt to the PL and to the Chelsea team and TT tactics?

{Ed002's Note - In a three it will be fine. In a two I would think there would be concerns. Ask the question of Ed001 separately.}

Agree1 0Disagree

28 Jul 2021 14:43:07
Could it be that Kounde is considered as a future Jorghino? A move into the midfield?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2021 11:37:39
Ed002 reports that we are in contact with sauls agent and interested, anything new? Could we go for him with other midfield targets looking difficult or is tchouameni or camavinga still possible thanks.

{Ed002's Note - He is being offered around.

Saul Niguez (CM) Nobody will pay his release clause, but Atletico could look to a very high fee for a player who has a contract that runs for years in order to get his €300k weekly wage off the books. Bayern Munich's first choice to add for midfield and his agent has spoken with several sides as Atletico want to make very significant savings on salaries and could be forced into a corner by the player and his agent. But Bayern see his cash price at €60M (or €75M on terms) and wages of €300k as too high and will want to negotiate - they will almost certainly turn elsewhere. He is being offered to the usual suspects who have money – Barcelona (who would need to include players in a deal), Manchester United (who would need to offload Pogba), Juventus, Manchester City, PSG, Chelsea as a potential Kovacic replacement - many of which are looking to add a player in his position, but his wages are a major issue for most. Atletico have effectively signed his replacement in de Paul but may make other midfield changes as well. I am not aware of any bid from Liverpool to Atletico at this time, but he would be an excellent choice, but a lot more expensive than other options. Atletico have said that there has been a discussion with Barcelona. Atletico would prefer the cash to having any players involved in a deal. Other clubs could become involved if players are sold, Pogba for instance.}

27 Jul 2021 11:58:30
Would atletico be i nerested in kovacic? Maybe a deal could be done there.

{Ed002's Note - What?}

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2021 19:09:44
Eds . What are Chelsea going to do with Drinkwater, he surely has no future at Chelsea and can't have that long on his contract .

{Ed002's Note - Danny Drinkwater (CM) ideally sell him but may need to drop to the Championship if he stays in England. Else he will be loaned for the final year of his contract or released if the club can agree a deal with him.}

Believable1 0Unbelievable

24 Jul 2021 19:22:08
Thanks Ed. I think a move to the Championship would be good for him. Whatever our opinions about him as a player, it is probably good for his self- esteem to be playing regularly. That said, I won’t shed too many tears given what has happened to people over that last 16 months; he won’t have to worry about how he can pay his mortgage etc.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Jul 2021 10:14:26
Jimbo the plan with Drinkwater is to share as many pics on social media to show that his serious about being a footballer and fit. The ultimate goal is for Arsenal to make a bid.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Jul 2021 10:20:17
Shame it didn't work out but it was very predictable how it turned out unfortunately.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2021 11:25:54
Ed002, is there any truth that we're looking to bring Eden Hazard back to the bridge? Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - Eden Hazard (LW/RW) Real Madrid have problems one way or another with all of their wingers and there is no guarantee any will be at the club next season. He will be another that Real Madrid listen to offers for and they have already approached Chelsea. There is someone senior at Chelsea advocating his return to the club which I understand would suit the player - but the club are already making efforts to sign another - so don't expect anything to happen.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

22 Jul 2021 12:31:53
The thing about Hazard is that although he might be a squad upgrade on a player like Ziyech, since moving to Spain he has been hit with injuries and he is not going to be the same again.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2021 12:47:50
celeryking, I agree. Even if we do bring Hazard back, he's just not going to be the same player anymore.

With full confidence and injury free Hazard can obviously still be a very good and creative player, just nowhere near what we saw a few years ago in his prime at the bridge. That burst of acceleration just looks like it's gone, and once it's gone it's not coming back.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Jul 2021 15:38:13
Can I ask which player the club is making an effort to sign?
I understand if you do not wish to tell!

{Ed002's Note - Unimportant.}

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2021 17:19:09
Hazard maybe injured but class is permanent and I believe he only needs little time to regain shape and fitness and the rest is history. i will bring him back imo.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Jul 2021 17:26:51
EmilSC, my guess is Kingsley Coman.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2021 04:47:42
Hasn’t Ed and pretty much every media outlet in the world made it clear that the player were trying to sign is Haaland….

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jul 2021 09:23:31
Well yes, but EH and EH don’t really have many similarities? I reckon Ed means that we're after another winger.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jul 2021 23:50:52
Rumours of Tammy going to Arsenal done for 40m loan with obligation to buy is there any truth in this?

Surely would mean we're close to signing a forward.

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement and there is nothing “close”.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

21 Jul 2021 06:55:02
The thing with Tammy is he's not clinical, he's not a striker who will get one shot a game and put it away. And for his height he's pretty poor in the air and at holding the ball up. Hence why we so often turned to Giroud and not Abraham.

Obviously Abraham is still fairly young and can vastly improve, but I'd take the reported 40m for him all day long. Especially if it helps towards Haaland etc!

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 08:25:37
Abraham scored the same number of goals as Werner. So please drop the bs.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 08:51:47
Bobby never said Werner was clinical. Chill.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 09:13:23
I disagree about Tammy being clinical. He’s probably the player in the squad I would back the most to finish a chance. His overall game just isn’t good enough to start for us. His passing and link up play is poor as is his dribbling and his heading is nowhere near what it should be for someone his height.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 09:45:33
TBH I heva watched Haaland. Absolutely over rated. Levandowski invented football for Haaland.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 09:51:26
Overrated you can’t be serious he is 20 years old and destroying Bundesliga defences, yes he’s still a raw talent compared to lewandoski who is at the other end of his career playing in a better side a seasoned pro and scored 7 more in-all competitions whether haaland joins us or not that comment is ridiculous a 20 year old getting 41/ 41 games and he’s overrated lol.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 10:00:53
* Inside the box, Abraham can finish, outside the box, he needs to improve.
* Werner stats shockingly better than most attacking players in the EPL last season (for a player that had his first season, better times ahead for him)

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 10:38:04
Overrated. 🤣🤣 the guy is class. he scoring record at 20 is insane. I think we only have chance to sign him this year. if we don't he will move else where Madrid etc.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 10:57:15
Overrated? 🤦‍♂️.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 11:01:00
Haaland is not overrated: he proved he’s a goal at RB Salzburg (Austria) and he has proven it again in the Bundesliga at just the age of 21- his numbers are mind blowing.
ASIDE: legs gave us the UCL trophy last season, I strongly advocate we go for players with legs.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 11:06:26
antibot. I never said Werner was clinical, none of our current or recent strikers are clinical and that's the problem.

When Tammy was playing regularly for us, he'd get chance after chance and miss. Surely people can remember this, we were moaning week in and week out at how many chances he missed and how we needed someone more clinical.

I'm not saying Tammy can't score, as he can given enough chances. But he's simply not good enough overall imo.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 15:02:24
Can we sign mo farah then if we’re going for players with legs?

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 17:31:36
😂 TheOracle91; I know you are being funny but ‘with legs’, I mean youthful, quick and enduring like Werner, Kai, Reece, Chilwell, Pulisic, Kante etc. I just don’t want us signing players that are relatively slow.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Jul 2021 21:20:48
Ha obinna I was only having a joke mate 😂 as good as legs are I think we have enough of them with the likes of Kante, Mount and Werner providing energy. We do lack a clinical edge though.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Jul 2021 00:29:42
I like Tammy, but he’s a bit, well, Danny Welbeck.

Agree0 0Disagree
