I recall from when my people eased them on me this morning that they were green based. But I was so wasted I could be wrong.

Hi Eds.
Would you mind giving me your opinion on Gael Etock,
who we may be signing from Barca.
Also do you know when the next african nation's cup is & after chelsea losing numerous players to this competition over the years, weather you think that the club will sign less african players in the future. {Ed002's Note - There will likely be less African players in the future. Etock is one of the youngsters that was being looked at by Arnesen originally. I know he is going on loan to Sporting right away, but otherwise I know nothing of him at all.}

Hi Ed, I read that according to Dutch reports that Wesley Sneijder's agent is in talks over a possible move to Chelsea, could that be the case?thanks Ed. {Ed002's Note - I really don't know.

Hi Ed, as you have said it is unlikely any serious movement will be made on the likes of Pastor, Neymar and Sanchez untill the copa is over, i was just wondering the dates of it, when it starts, and the day of the final? And also if you have an idea of players that AVB will want to bring to the club, not necessarily those who are already targets? Cheers {Ed002's Note - You may have misunderstood something I said. Chelsea have bids on the table for all three of the players. The only player that I jknow has been discussed separately is Falcao right now, but there may have been more. Time changes between England and Colorado and Brazil have made things a little difficult I am told. I am also travelling again and I have much more limited access to information whilst on the road.}

Hi Ed,

U say that Pastore has options for other clubs to opt for, we know that Chelsea have made a bid for him to Palermo, but have Barca and his other options also made a bid?

dunno if im being naive but if we are the only ones to put a bid in then surely we are the only one who have a chance and he doesnt have any other options

cheers for answering a novice to the transfer markets questions :) {Ed002's Note - Other clubs have made bids but they are not cash bids - part ownership is an option that is not allowed for English clubs but is very common in Italy, Spain and Portugal. These are teh options being looked at.}

Have Chelsea put in a new bid for Aguero?
If yes, how much? {Ed002's Note - No - just a watching brief at the moment.}

Believable4 Unbelievable2

30 Jun 2011 10:43:03
As well as Ramires and luiz, also alex and a few brazillian youngsters i believe. I do think we have a strong chance with Neymar, and i would love to see sanchez at chelsea. i know he would do well in England. Pastore is quality and does look like our best hope for a creative midfielder. Other than that i dont know why we are looking at Fabio Coentrao, i dont think he is good enough, and with A.Cole And R.Bertrand i think we have great cover. Id love to see us go for M.Richards and also Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mesut zil, T vez and Aguero {Ed002's Note - Coentrao will come in to the equation if Cole moves to Real Madrid. Cover will be provided by Patrick Van Aanholt.}

Chelsea have had a £4million bid rejected for Thibaut Courtois. Lets get serious and put these bids on the table £40million for Neymar - will be worth every penny £35million for Sanchez - looks like the next or closet thing to C.Ronaldo. £45 million for Pastore - will defo succed in england JOB DONE {Ed002's Note - Sadly it is not as simple as putting a bid on the table. With the bids made the club is still finding it tough to get the players to move to England. As an example, whilst Luiz and Ramires are fighting Chelsea's cause with Neymar, Robinho is poisoning his mind about England. As another example, Chelsea agreed a deal for Sanchez in January only for Pozzo to, proverbially, move the goal posts. Pastore is a more interesting situation as the interested clubs are the same and he has options to consider. If Barcelona opt for Sanchez and Fabregas then I guess there is no place for Pastore. We will see.}

30 Jun 2011 09:52:01
Just 1 quick question ED'S. It looks like Chelsea will miss out on Neymar (R.Madrid) and Sanchez (Barcelona) so from what i've been reading on here, we are left with Pastore and Falcao but we are in need of some quality wide players which explains trying to get Neymar and Sanchez. So ED'S are there any other targets incase we miss out on those players? {Ed002's Note - There will be thought given to the situation and the club will need to look elsewhere. It will dealt with.}

ED if you had a gun against your head and you had to choose 3 realistic signings who they be {Ed018's Note - a water gun? or what}
Hahahaha, bravo Ed one of your funniest answers ever BTW, Marca says that Neymar only wants to play for Real Madrid, not for Bar a or Chelsea. I think this might be another Marca invention.

Believable1 Unbelievable4

30 Jun 2011 08:18:51
Ed is it likely that we would get two of those: Neymar, Sanchez, Pastore and Aguero?

I think we should be more than happy with this. {Ed002's Note - I really can't answer these "what if" questions about players from a list. Individually recent bids have been made for three of the four and a watching brief is being kept over the other.}

Ed, its ridiculous isnt it, how can we not be interested in nasri hes fecking awesome and just the player we need. Im your average joe and even I can see what needs to be done at chelsea, Lampard bench, Drogba bench, Ramires bench then bring in nasri and sneijder to slot in midfield next to essien, nw u have benayoun and lampard as cover in the attacking mid dep. Then sanchez and neymar playing upfront either side of torres with vdw and cole flying up the flanks. We need a big squad with lots of attacking options. your thoughts? {Ed018's Note - yea we need a tad b igger squad than last year. nasri is a good player, but all i can tell you is chelsea at this point dont have any interest in him}

Believable0 Unbelievable6

30 Jun 2011 01:59:37
Ed, im hearing alot of rumours that nasri has signed for manchester united. Apparently the deal is suppose to be woth 23 million which i would see as a bargain. Is there any truth in these rumours or are they false? and if so what are chelsea doing letting bitter rivals man united capture a player like nasri without even attempting to sign him themselves. I dont see what the big thing is with chelsea n transfers is, we stall and drag our feet all the time it really irratates me. Uve got a player there that is world class, hes attacking mid which is exactly what we need and hes premiership proven. Chelsea are foolish for not even considering him as a target. {Ed018's Note - maybe try asking on the United page. i have no idea if Nasri has signed. I dont know why Chelsea dont have any interest in him.}

Believable0 Unbelievable4

30 Jun 2011 01:32:29

Ed what are the chances of Chelsea being able to bring Philip Lahm, Wesley Sneijder and Sergio Aguero in this summer?three signings that could improve the current squad and it is difficult to find players to improve a great squad.thanks {Ed018's Note - no chance on Lahm, Sneijder may become an option if Chelsea are unable to sign Pastore. And Aguero is possible but they have different targets right now.}

Believable4 Unbelievable1

30 Jun 2011 00:54:35
do you think as soon as chelsea purchase there first big signing the rest could follow ( pastore neymar sanchez etc ) {Ed018's Note - i dont know if it will happen like that but if those 3 were to come i'd be a very happy person. even if 2 of them came. but i dont think just one player coming would persuade another player to come, we already have alot of proven well known players, that should make the club inviting to come to.}

Hello Ed, I Have Heard So Many Rumours today that Chelsea will be signing this play and that player in the next few days , it's a joke if they have seen AVB's Press Conference He Clearly states that he will not be signing Any player until the Chelsea players come back on the 6th Of July . He and his Staff will sit down and see what players he needs to win trophies again . {Ed018's Note - well dont be totaly fooled,they are definitely in the process of trying to bring players in. it will take time, but yea there are alot of rumours out there that are way off}
