I may be being a little cheeky here, but after one of the highs of the season after a good result against everton, any chance of a list of potential transfer targets for chelsea and potential outgoings?


{Ed002's Note - It is really not worth the grief.}

For all of those interested in transfer dealings. Ed02 has given a very full summary of the potential transfer interests for many clubs on the Man Utd site.

Have a good one lads and looking forward to catching up soon.

So, could we get Europa league, which would be a disappointing season BUT, with a young team that would be a good competition for a lot of them, but some serially tough games to see season out. Plus a semi v city and the final

Arsenal A

Villa A

Tottenham H

West Ham H

Forrest A

Brighton A

Bournemouth H.

I think we could win 5-6 out of the last 7 games.

What a performance that was Cole Palmer is signing of the season and for me I think he is the best player i've seen in a Chelsea shirt since Eden Hazard. Everytime he gets the ball you feel something is going to happen. I love his air of confidence and his swagger.

Caceido and Gallagher both superb tonight, that was Caceido's best performance of the season so far. I don't think he lost a dual and bossed the game. We look so much better without Enzo Fernandes.

Buzzin for Alfie Gilchrist as well getting his first goal. Loved his interview their where they asked him about the penalty incident and he brushed it to one side.

Now to the penalty. Jackson and Mudeke both need to grow up their actions their was pathetic. However Im happy to see Gallagher growing into his captains roll and learning from previous mistakes and handing the ball to GOAT of penalties.

Hopefully we will have a big push till the end of the season and get sixth. Bring on Man City next weekend. Up The Chels!

Just home from the match.

My negatives from the game. 1) Mudryk continually losing the ball left Cucarella exposed far too often. 2) The penalty fiasco has been dealt with by Poch. 3) Poch could have made some substitutions much earlier.

Obviously Palmer MOM. What a class player this lad is. The bloke next to said he has now scored more Chelsea goals than Havertz.

Jackson was a real handful throughout the game. Two assists and a goal and he gave the Everton CH's a torrid time.

CG gave a very assured and disciplined performance as a DM.

Noni was always willing to take on his man and caused them all sorts of problems.

I don't see Everton often (thankfully) but I have read suggestions that we should to sign Onana. Well tonight Caicedo had him totally in his pocket and it was no surprise that he was hooked at HT. For me it was Caicedo's best performance in a Chelsea shirt.

So pleased with the result and performance and I can now have my treatment with a smile on my face.

Caicedo immense. Regarding havertz, never wanted to say it like this cuz he was a chelsea player but he was absolutely rubbish for chelsea. lol.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2024 22:25:26
Enzo doesn't get in for me now the further defensive Gallagher is the better he is. I would have subbed the two off for the penalty embarrassment I get noni thinking he may of won the penalty and Parmer had the hatrick but the other one, what right! He's only netted 1 in 9 hasn't he on the other hand he did play ok.
Still looked a little disjointed at times defending but a lot better all round I really think there's a player In mudryk.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2024 22:36:27
Agree with Mudryk a top player in there.

Regards the penalty Deli on sky made a good point they weren't fighting over it in the 97th minute against Man Utd

Not convinced by Noni at all.

Caicaido had a great game tonight.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2024 23:24:20
I thought it was a very average performance by Mudryk who constantly left Cucarella exposed by losing the ball or just not being strong in the challenge.

Yeah I would have hooked the both of them immediately. I don’t mind either of them taking the penalty given we were 4-0 up but would expect them to talk it out respectfully etc and not be throwing handbags over it.

Think pretty much all of the starting 11 had a really solid game. Caicedo looked so much better overall, good in the tackle and recycled the ball well imo.

Was really impressed by the amount of second balls we won when we punted it upfield. Almost every game I’ve seen the opposition defence have won the header and then we’ve been nowhere near the knockdown to challenge for it but today we seemed to be on every ball.

One thing I still don’t understand though is the goal kicks. I get playing out from the back but it truly baffles me having both CB’s in the 6 yard box for the kick. Seems to bring so much unwanted pressure imo.
Also granted we were 2-0 up and we didn’t need to be full out attacking, but there were times where we’d regain the ball off Everton (due to the player slipping or w/ e) and instead of trying to counter in any way, our player just stands there with the ball for 10-15 seconds til Everton are back in their shape.

Great performance from caicedo and Gallagher in the midfeild. Enzo needs to pull a finger out and start performing otherwise I agree I don't think he'll get back in.

Standard I disagree on enzo, he will easily displace cg to reclaim his position. I think he's played many games and looking a little tired atimes. In some ways Everton made it easier for us though. The guys did very well but enzo will reclaim his position regardless.

Agree1 0Disagree

That win ruined but idiots trying to take the ball off palmer, Jackson and noni, selfish idiots, palmer takes pens, why add more pressure to him, poch needs to tell them, idiots. It's a TEAM game, really dampened a phenomenal performance .

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2024 22:02:47
Game was won Poch probably didn't want to make it a bigger issue but should of taken Jackson and Noni off instantly.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Apr 2024 22:13:02
Had thought the same seymns Poch needed to assert some authority.

But at last a game when we take almost all of our goid chances and CP truly outstanding with Caicedo with one of his best performances, Jackson excellent except his silly penalty childishness and Madueke almost ditto.

Both Jackson and Caicedo on 9 yellows now get reservations 0.

So quite sine might for celebrations even if we still looked shakey in defence at times or careless with some passes. But going forward we were really exciting almost always.

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Apr 2024 22:24:11
Agreed, that was a great performance that was needed after a couple of shaky teams against the sides as good as down. I really don’t understand what happened with the penalty and what worries me is this isn’t the first time this has happened, Madueke has tried to take one off Palmer at least once before this. How has Poch not made it absolutely clear that Palmer is the penalty taker?

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2024 22:26:01
Missed the game because it was a 5am game for me but will watch the extended highlights soon.

I have seen the madueke and Jackson incident. Absolutely embarrassing. Poch shoukd have taken them both off instantly. They appear to have a bad attitude problem.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2024 23:12:30
Embarrassing from Jackson and Madueke, both of them were selfish and petulant, it’s good that they want to score but you can’t behave like that.

Great performance other than that, Palmer superb as usual, level with Haaland for the golden boot with 6 games to go, incredible signing.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2024 23:22:10
Poch in his press conference said the players know who takes the penalties and it’s Palmer. He was very angry about a situation that was agreed pre match. He expressed his anger in the dressing room post match.

Hope that is the last time that happens.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2024 23:51:25
At 4-0 I don’t mind another player taking the penalty in that situation, opposite of Sterling taking it in the cup when we were 1-0 up. But if players are going to throw handbags about it then it’s best that it’s 100% palmer 100% of the time, even if another player is on a hattrick.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Apr 2024 09:21:34
It’s a shame that a good performance has been somewhat overshadowed by the penalty incident. Someone said Poch has dealt with it, well let’s hope he has but it shouldn’t have happened again. His weak, waffling response to the previous penalty incident has probably contributed to what happened last night. IMO, the designated penalty taker should always take it whatever the situation. If the penalty was awarded it a tight game, that sort of behaviour could unnerve the penalty taker. That said, in that scenario the players involved would probably be walking away quickly from the penalty spot. One or two suggestions that Enzo shouldn’t be starting; that’s worrying considering how much we paid for him and that he is reportedly about to get a contract extension.

Thank god Gallagher stepped in this time.

I'm fully convinced we will concede from a set piece, likely back post, that won't stop me being extremely angry about it,

Wrong again lol.

I now wish I hadn't started this. Apparently it's too early for the West Ham game tickets to go on the resale site.

The spurs tickets on now on sale.

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2024 12:36:53
Lads I'm so sorry, my son will be putting bothe the Spurs and West Ham tickets up for sale in the next few mins.
