Hi ED02 and hope you are well.
Quick question but fully appreciate if you don't wish to answer. With Tchouameni looking likely to move to Real Madrid and Rice possibly staying at West Ham who do you think, if any, Chelsea will look to bring in if any of the current midfielders like Kante or Jorghi were to leave?
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Rice? Yes, Chelsea will replace players leaving through others in the squad, returning to the squad or purchases.}

I'd like to see Chelsea line up next season (hopefully not. Fifa head)

Kounde Silva Gvardiol
James Rice Kova Chilwell
Nkunku Mount

obviously Gallagher being used in rotation

integrat Colwill

Players like Perisic for free
Radiot on a small fee be a decent signing.

Wheely not a bad team but I think Rice will be at WHU next season. I don’t fancy Perisic or Radiot but it’s just my opinion. Who would you have as backup forJames and Chilwell given their injury issues last season. Kepa is likely to go: not a fan of Mendy any ideas for back up?

24 May 2022 22:48:25
If kepa leaves Baxer has had two good seasons . possible if he doesn't mind being 2nd choice.

Integrat a few youngsters, this is a re build I wouldn't expect two much next year. Will take time.

Looks like Tchouameni isn't happening, same as Rice. Neves and Kessie off elsewhere. Frenkie De Jong seems unlikely. Midfield is a critical area for us to fix but sanctions and indecision have stopped us getting early deals. Really hope we don't fork out silly money on a player similar to what happened with Drinkwater. But options do appear very thin based on who we are reported to have interest in.

It doesn’t look great. If we can’t sign Rice or Tchouameni this window maybe keep Jorginho for another season and extend his contract whilst bringing Ampadu back who’s done really well.

Just concentrate on getting quality players for other positions needed instead of panic buying. Stick with what we’ve got until the right one is available. Rive next year sounds more promising. Get a couple of quality defenders and a couple of wingers maybe.

23 May 2022 19:52:53
Jorginho needs to go this summer. We are so slow and pedestrian whenever he plays.

23 May 2022 20:20:42
I’m not a fan but if we can’t sign the profile we want don’t waste money on someone who’s isn’t that.

Completely agree that we must now rebuild from a combo of existing players, including hopefully some more coming through from the academy, and (only) quality purchases who TT likes and believes will suuceed in EPL (and he now has the experience here of course) in the transfer market.

It may take several seasons to build title challenging/ winning team. We need to be patient as with Man City and pep, Liverpool and Klopp. I said the same when Frank Lampard was appointed and reckoned it would be a 3 season project. He may not have been the manager to take us there though, and anyway this is irrelevant now.

Am now surely hoping TT is. I can't myself think of any better alternative who is available, and TT has impressed me with his calmness and confidence, even if have been critical at times, e. g. in terms of his use of substitutes. He has won trophies already and am sure has support of most of players, if not all of them.

But I hadn't considered that our attacking signings would so underperform, problem of all the large number of injuries to key players plus RA sanctions probolems (including departures) . So more patience probably necessary. I would be amazed if we could seriously challenge City or LFC next season. But hugely hope I'm wrong of course! KTBFFH.

Dear Ed,

Is there any remote truth in the rumour that Chels are after Hugo Ekitike?

{Ed002's Note - What is a Chels?}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2022 20:19:26
Ed, I think Chels is a chavvy girl.

23 May 2022 09:43:59
Just want to thanks to all the eds for replying to all our posts!

Ed002 thanks for all our thorough transfer updates!

Agree0 Disagree0

23 May 2022 20:51:24
Ed002, just like to echo what Wheely said: thanks for the update info. I’m not getting excited about possible transfers until the sanctions are lifted and the new owners are in place.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome. I will try and offer what I can but there are a couple of things going on (rather in abeyance just now) that will lead to abuse. Sof I have to be careful.}

22 May 2022 21:49:35
The league doesn't lie, we were the 3rd best team in the country, and in the finals only nerves were the difference, the rebuild starts now, tuchel has said he can't go on holiday as too much to do, we will need him rested and recovered to close the gap on city and Liverpool, my player of the season would be mount, he frustrates Me, he sometimes goes missing. But the course of season he has been good, disappointing player I'd say pulsic for his end product and we know look forward to a new era under a new owner,

Just got home from todays match but first things first.

Congratulations City, well deserved and in my opinion the best team in Europe.

Funny old game with nothing to play for but three things of note:-

1) Very funny when the Chelsea fans started chanting the Gerrard on his arse song when City went in front.

2) Saul being picked and generally having a very solid game. Putting aside todays opposition it begs the question should he have played more games?

3) pleased to see Chilly back on the pitch.

Regardless of other fans opinions my POS was Silva and today he was class again.

This is my opinion on our season:-

TT. Got us the Super Cup and World club Championship plus two finals and Champions League qualification but yet I find myself slightly disappointed.

I have found some of his team selections surprising and his substitutions lacking ambition and I have to admit I find our play less than easy on the eye.

We have missed some crucial players through the season but that happens with most teams. On the other hand he is managing a team that in my opinion lacks leadership on the pitch and is mentally weak.

Mendy. In my opinion is not top class. To be a top class keeper in the modern game you ability with the ball at your feet has to at least good, his is average. I would look to find keeper to strongly challenge him for the No1 spot.

Kepa. I think he should have got more games for us this season. I assume he will be leaving and I think he is another player we may well regret letting go.

Silva. Class and a credit to himself. Just wish he was 20 years younger. Next season's captain.

James. I think h sis the beat RWB/ RB in Europe. Shame he missed so many games.

Chalaboa. This has been a big learning curve for him and generally he has come through it well. Very good squad player.

Sarr. Gave one of the worst defensive performances I've seen from a Chelsea player in years against Arsenal. I will be disappointed if he is in our squad next season.

Dave, Alonso, Christensen and Rudiger I think will all be leaving to pastures new. I wish them all the best. Rudiger to my surprise has had an excellent season and Dave has been a legend for our club.

Jorginho. I think may well be leaving in this window. He has always had the ability to control certain games but his lack of pace cause problems and he isn't the quickest in moving the ball forward.

Kante. Still top class. I think the player we have missed the most this season. He needs to play every game. A stop start season isn't good for him or us.

Kovacic. Good workrate and he can see a pass and carry the ball but he doesn't score anywhere near enough.

RLC. Improved as the season progressed. I think he wi be in our squad next season and the manager seems to like him.

Mount. I said at the start of the season I thought he would find things hard after the Euros. He hasn't found it as easy to find the gaps between the lines this season. I think he is top class and will be important for us in years to come. Has to find different ways to make space for himself and he needs to get beyond the CF more often.

Pusilic has missed some important chances when given the chance but I still believe in him and think he can be a future match winner for us in years to come.

Ziyech. I'm not sure what to make of him and I'm also not sure he has been given the run in the team his form sometimes deserved. Sadly I think he might be the wide player to leave.

CHO. Got a run of games and for a while he looked to be on his way back but generally he has been a disappointment. His injuries haven't helped.

Havertz. Reminds me of George Graham (stroller) or maybe Martin Peters. He looks class but can still drift in and out of games.

Werne. Has zero positional sense and his first touch is truly appalling. His saving grace is pace but that's not enough for me and I think he will be leaving.

Lukaku. It remains a mystery to me why we signed him and then decided not to play to his strengths. His last few games showed some sign of improvement but I'm not sure if he has a future at our club. A lot will depend on who we sign in this window.

Saul, I assume we will not be taking up our opinion but I haven't seen enough of him to know if that's a wise decision. '

Barkley. I think he will be going back to play for Lamps and maybe that's the best thing for him.

I will probably be away from this site for a couple of weeks now. So, let's hope for a good window and as always thanks to the Ed's and my fellow posters.

Tom good post., I agree with about 90% of it. I would get rid of RLC to allow another academy player to get a shot, he is 26 has had 2 seasons without injury scored a couple of goals and isn’t going to get any better. I would like Silva to stay as a coach especially if Colwill joins the squad. Chalalboa has has a season on the training ground with Silva and hasn’t learned to keep on his feet and when you head the ball out try to aim for a Chelsea player. As or TT I agree he needs to establish a style of football but he has been a rock during this sanctions issue. If he gets the a say of who comes in and who goes we can make an objective judgement on him.

22 May 2022 21:56:20
Was you really at the game Tom? I can remember your bull posts about going to away games many moons ago.

22 May 2022 22:37:42
Yes G8 but as It’s now almost impossible to go to away games unless your an away season ticket holder I don’t bother.

I didn’t go to the Champions League final last year (health) and didn’t go to Wembley for either final this year.

I will be renewing my season ticket for Mathew Harding upper for next season but I think it will be my last season of attending any games. I will give my ticket to my youngest grandson.

22 May 2022 22:51:08
G8, have you got anything relevant to say about Chelsea or football rather than questioning whether someone was at a game. I’m suprised your post got through.

23 May 2022 09:40:48
I was there yesterday. was a strange atmosphere.
Good post Tom.

22 May 2022 18:57:03
Well the season is over, third place, lost two finals on penalties but that's what can happen if you don't win the game in playing time. We have had injuries but that's no excuse it happens to all teams. However, we have had an unprecedented issue with sanctions which has never happened to any PL club. Throughout, TT has been calm and diplomatic, I know some people have been critical of him but I hope with new owners he gets the say in who comes in and who goes out. Next season is going to be be interesting.
