Is there any chance a late deal could still go through for ganso or anyone else {Ed018's Note - possible but doubtful}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Aug 2011 23:52:12
Whilst I don't view him as world class, let's not miss the fact that Meireles was PFA fans player of the year 2011. Sounds crazy but he was, so clearly he was rated by the Liverpool fans (who must have voted a lot!). AVP would know a lot about him from his Portugal years as well, so let's get behind the signing and see what happens

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Sort your life out and find some kind of positvity t**t. otherwise support the Gooners.

Liverpool fans are gutted. End of.

Go and look at the Liverpool site and I think you will find that is not the case.

Hi, to your knowledge is mereiles the only signing we have made on deadline day? Could be a shrewd piece of business but would like to see a More out and out creative midfielder. Thanks Appreciate the work you do. {Ed018's Note - as far as i know yes}

Give Meriless a chance before have a go at him, Ramires is doing all the running in midfield and we surely can't do no worse then Mikel !
Man ute must still laugh about the Mikel saga !

Believable1 Unbelievable0

If Mikel is given a chance this season which by the looks of it he will be, i think you will be surprised by Mikel and turn out to be a decent player in the holding role for Chelsea.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope you prove me wrong .

Hopefully he will come good. I think Avb has gambled a bit on this one.

Agreed
KTBFFH!

Agree0 Disagree0

Thank god someone on here with a less than bleak outlook on this transfer window. The club has spent well I think, and Miereles will at least put himself about, spot a pass and cause problems, I mean he came on the other week and changed the game at Arsenal. Not ideal I guess, but the squad we have now is certainly strong and it has been a positive summer. Thanks so much to Eds 2 and 18 for keeping us in the loop during all the transfer shenanigans.

Blue25

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the window has been very successful. Yes we didn't get the playmaker we crave but what more can the club do? Pastore wanted more money, Ganso wants a move to Milan, Moutinho is happy where he is and Modric isn't being allowed to leave. Yes there are many other great playmakers out there like Hamsik and Gotze but I am sure there are answers to why they did not come in. Basically, lets get behind the boys and not get on AVB's back. Keep the Faith.
P.S. Thanks to Ed's for the coverage, much appreciated.
Scotty.

31 Aug 2011 23:37:48
Ed, i am shocked about how these transfers have gone and i'm sure you are too, they shouldn't have loaned benayoun if they knew they would sign meireles. worst deadline ever. your thoughts on this Ed. i'm sure you're devastated too {Ed018's Note - all in all it was a good summer and we do have lucas coming in January, but i was expecting something a bit better today}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

There is no guarantees on how good piazon is. Listened to tim vickery ( south American correspondent) the other day say he was a world beater at under 15 level but lucky to get in the under 17 brazil team. Not pinning my hopes on this one.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 23:37:02
For all you chelsea fans that are slating Meireles already, the liverpool fans seem upset that they have let him leave, says something doesn't it?!

Believable1 Unbelievable0

Right!

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes i agree

Agree0 Disagree0

We're more concerned that we didn't get a replacement in for him rather than the fact that he's gone. In fairness, he's a decent player but a bit lightweight. 12m for him when Arsenal only paid 10m for Arteta is good business for us - just when I thought you might have learned your lesson
after Torres and Benny!

Evs the Red

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm a Liverpool fan and I'm not particularly upset. He's a decent player but not creative enough to be an attacking mid and too weak in the tackle to be a defensive mid. Decent link player but not what you lot need imo

Red Ollie

Agree0 Disagree0

Im a liverpool fan also, just gutted we didnt manage to get Sturridge as part of the deal, in all fairness he scored 5 goals in a 6 game run last season an apart from them goals he didnt reall

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh well scousers, sorry we have bicked a couple of you players. Be honest you would love to have our squad! Xx

Agree0 Disagree0

True we would love to have Lampard, Terry, Drogba, Cech, Cole, (and Torres of course) etc in our squad. Great players. Oh sorry, I've just woke from a dream, and it's not 2005 it's 2011 and all your main players are now five years too old (or shot) and are too powerful for your teenage manager to replace them. They were leggy last season, anyone could see that - can't believe you havn't done anything about it.

Agree0 Disagree0

A couple of years back maybe,but now I'm more than happy with the squad we have. Bring on the season and lets see who finishes above who!

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 23:34:18
i think chelsea have signed raul from scousers at a very decent price. Remember he has done well at porto and also at loverfool. His name was alwayd there among possible targets. Pastore didn't wanted to come, levy loves luka so much, moutinhio is home sick. Also these 3 players were highly overpriced by their owner teams. raul is decent if not marquee for me. He would give us short term ammunation for this season. looking at transfer value and his wages, he looks a shrewd buy.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Agreed - versatile too.

Agree0 Disagree0

Arteta - 10mil
Meireles - 12mil
doesn't sound to great to me......

Jimmy YNWA

31 Aug 2011 23:34:07
I really don't understand why we didn't get someone like Elia to play on the wing so Mata could player in the middle or sign someone like Pjanic/Jovetic. But hey lets give Meireles a chance and see how we go. Playing Man U in 2 games time should give us some idea how Chelsea may go this season with the current squad.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

Lets hope is not like the other ex Liverpool star

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 23:33:54
gigi salmon on chelsea tv says she thinks there are still gonna be some more chelsea involved deals to come through. Does she know something we don't? Or seen someone? Hope may not be lost yet!

so thats it ed, meriless? nothing more on ganso? {Ed018's Note - no}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Aug 2011 23:31:34
Ed would I be right in thinking that as we haven't managed to sign De Bruyne in this window that we will most probably go back in for him in January or next summer? Thanks {Ed018's Note - we probably will]

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Aug 2011 23:31:28
What is the matter with some of you? You want a creative midfielder so we sign 1 and u moan get behind the boys instead of moaning. 40mill for modric was ridiculous 12 milkmaid merieles is good business don't forger we brought oriel and mate in, Luiz to come back get Torres firing and we will be flying. Chelsea fan thru any storm come on the chels!

Believable0 Unbelievable0

He is box to box midfielder. We needed someone to control the tempo of our play, as we play in two speeds slow And slower.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think its good we didnt pay 40 mill for a overated rat weve had great signings and a great summer
chelsea til i die
matt

Agree0 Disagree0

40 mil for modric was way over the odds!
I was hopeing for ganso and de bruyne

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 23:31:07
Is there any news on why De Bruyne didn't come? {Ed018's Note - didnt meet Genk's asking price, i believe}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Aug 2011 23:29:15
In my opinion, the most disappointing thing about transfer deadline day, is NOT the fact that we signed an average midfielder instead of a top quality one, but the fact that we failed to offload players like Anelka, Kalou etc.

Ill still support these players fully and I also welcome meireles although, I dont really rate him. They still could all turn out to be important players.

I love Chelsea and still have high hopes for this season.

31 Aug 2011 23:26:38
I would have rather we had just kept Kakuta and played him. Admittedly, I haven't seen that much of Meirelles but surely he isn't much better than Yossi? Seems like a deal for the sake of it really.

You still speechless ED?

Yeti. {Ed018's Note - a bit}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

He's a good player, not world class, makes good runs but is an arse wipe when it comes to getting stuck in. Good business on our part! Thats another w**ker we've sold to you lot.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 23:26:15
Our transfer policy is crap. We've even given arsenal a helping hand in a player they have no intention of buying permanently. When has anyone been so generous to us, we're most probably paying a chunck of his wages as well. I hope avb isn't judged on trophies this year cause if he is it will be back to square one next summer.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Arsenal will have paid us to take him on loan and will also be paying his wages, so not really a helping hand as he was going to leave anyways.

Agree0 Disagree0

He will return a year older and a further year into his contract. We need to offload some wages so don't think arsenal would not be aware of this, we most likely approached them. They r the biggest beggars in the business so not for one minute do I believe that they are a paying a loan fee and his wages fully.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 23:23:56
ed could there be deals done behind closed doors? {Ed018's Note - could be, who knows maybe another signing will be announced}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Lets hope so.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 23:18:31
meirelles signs for us. Any updates on ganso? {Ed018's Note - no}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

I cant beleive this, he strugled to get into a crap liverpool side! I would rather have given josh a crack at it.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 23:17:05
ED do you know any secret deal that u know about that have been made or attempted behind closed doors? {Ed018's Note - no}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Aug 2011 23:16:33
Ed could you shed some light on the situation that has just occured. Sending Benayoun out on a season long loan to Arsenal to then buy a very similar player in Merieles for a reported £12m on a 4 year contract? He doesnt have the pass or creativity we desperately need in the middle of the field and is not a upgrade over our current squad players? Why does this leave McEachran also.... Thanks

PB {Ed018's Note - im a bit speechless on this right now, either way he's a chelsea player now and ill support him. theres nothing saying he wont come good for us}

Believable1 Unbelievable1

So now we are a hub for liverpool rejects...great

Agree0 Disagree0

Speechless is a understatement so much for AVB being a saviour!!
buying him is a joke should of just stuck with josh and kept benny and saved money and still stuck with kalouless

Agree0 Disagree0

People forget that he had a good season and he is seasoned in the Prem league I'm happy TBH n I'm quite happy

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets hope he starts his career at Chelsea better than Torres has. We can't afford for Meireles to have a slow start for Chelsea! I take it he will be a first team players and starting the majority of the games now?

Agree0 Disagree0

Stinks of another Torres

Agree0 Disagree0

Torres scores the winner against us, we sign him, mierless scores the winner against us we sign, hopefully suarez scores against us next time

Agree0 Disagree0

He always pulls out of 50 50s,ynwa,

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd have liked Cfc had made 2 more deals but I'm happy for Meireles to be a chelsea player! You'll like him too! He will score more than 3 goals as Modric and will defend and attack with all his strength and soul!

Agree0 Disagree0

Feigned injury in his last game for Liverpool,12m for a 28yr old that won't tackle,average player at best.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 23:16:09

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Aug 2011 22:58:40
Raul Merieles :( McEachran can offer us so much more than him, plus it will help his development, save us a reported £15m which is over priced and £50k minimum a week in wages. Pastore, Ganso, Moutinho, Modric are all top rate midfielders, Merieles who is 28 is not in that league, we were told no panic buys, it is now 10.55pm and were on and off buying him. Not Happy

PB

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Couldn't agree more. Very dissapointed. I really think we should review our transfer policy.

Agree0 Disagree0

Meireles is versatile and better option than Mikel deep,plus can play on the right...I know people are disappointed but Meireles is not as bad as people make out...we have to accept we are rebuilding and enough players havent left to bring more players in

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 22:58:23

31 Aug 2011 22:51:18
15 mil for mireles, cfc should hang thre heads in shame. If this isn't a panic buy then I don't know what is. What can this bloke add to our team that Josh mac can't? I'd rather have Joey Barton , swp , bellamy or Parker. What an absolute anti climax , what a shambles. If he's worth 15 mil then I'm worth 5 mil. And u'll only have to pay me 1k per week.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

Disgrace and very desperate

Well guy was best LFC player last season.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 22:50:46
Well, Meireles better than nothing? What else can I say? Can you see the slippery slope? Ganso, Pastore, Modric, Meireles. Maybe we wanted to sign somebody whose surname starts with an M?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

How does Ganso or Pastore start with M?

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 22:50:30

I'm a EFC fan and just heard the Arteta is infact going to Chelsea and not Arsenal. Kalou + 7M is though to be the deal. Arteta will be what Chelsea need. A playmaker to play along side Torres. Also Benayoun just signed for Arsenal.

well people its pretty damn dead out there!!
looks like modric made us a laughing stock!!
dont think anything will happen now
whats your views on how this window have been

Believable0 Unbelievable0

I think we've made some very positive signings. I think that we've actually done well to not spend over the odds on Modric, as we now have funds to build for a possible move towards Ganso or Neymar in January.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well ive kissed goodbye to winning a throphy this season! i havent got the words to express how i feel about not signin a center mid it was a must thing to do! joke!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Ur a joke calling ur self a Chelsea supporter ,with mata and now Sturridge back 2 very good players to feed Torres lamps sticking in the and Ramires improving we can do it ktbffh

Agree0 Disagree0

Well i wrote this post as pretty upset bout not getting neymar or ganso even if we would have got them and had them in jan when lucas arrived
no playmaker is a bad move i believe

Agree0 Disagree0

Quite happy with what we have done. Matta looked class when he played reminded me of Zola when he first played for us. Give Josh a chance in CM as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

Mate look we ve got mata an amazing player we got lukaku and we brought loads of good young player this wasimportant because ye we want to win the leauge season but wat about future when we r not aloud to spend money when ever we want we had to buy young player but if we do get last minute purchase amazing but still andre has done very well

Agree0 Disagree0

Think josh and mata and also sturridge coming back is great news
what do you think of the latest rumour on ganso?

Agree0 Disagree0

I totally agree we desperately need a creative midfielder who can link up play. We have a strong squad but lack any flair, as much as it pains me to say I think we will struggle without such a player. Hope I'm wrong.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a joke at all! if u wanna rely on old has beens then thats up to u! we are easy to play against! same old crap for yrs teams are wising up to us! getting out played at home to norwich was embrassing! need freshing up need a plan b and need compitions for places

I do not understand how you so called 'Supporters' can have a go at Chelsea for this Transfer Window.

How do you know what is going on behind the scenes?

As Ed002 and Ed018 have mentioned, many efforts have been made to bring in many different players, and just because the majority of these deals haven't come off, you guys are now accusing Chelsea of not trying to solve the problems with the team.

Players like Neymar, Ganso, Pastore, Modric, etc... have been targeted, and unfortunately no deals were able to be agreed, but at least the club realise they have the problem there even if they haven't been able to solve it in this window.

I personally feel that AVB will play Mata in the role behind the striker with Malouda on the left and Sturridge on the right of Torres.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Agreed

Agree0 Disagree0

Well, have you ever thought that choosing your targets wisely would also help? Nah?

Anzhi and PSG are trying for basicaly anyone they can find on some football manager video game. We do try also. That's given.

This is the results game, and if we do not get them, well... effort doesn't count.

Look - Elia was available for 9 million euros at the age of 24, great speed, decent finishing, plays both wings, an upgrade over Kalou anyday. Not in our interest.

Pjanic goes to Roma for 11 million and we are not even in the picture. Neat.

You count on Mata to be our creative force? Me too. And tell me what's our Plan B if he gets injured? Or are you expecting him to be everpresent for some odd 50 games? Oops, no plan B since Mourinho left. Sad but true.

I mean we could have got a loan deal for Diego if we were interested, but didn't go that route either.

If the club is content with the players we have got - so will I. But if it will cost our bright young manager a post in May whose fault would that be?

Agree0 Disagree0

The club have obviously picked the players they targeted for certain reasons and I will trust the club that they know what they are doing.

There must be reasons why the others were not targeted. Especially things like why has Pjanic gone to Roma who aren't even in the Champions League?!

Also we did not have a 'creative' midfielder when we won the league so Mata can only be an improvement on what we already had when we won the league.

Ok Utd and City have improved significantly, but I still feel Chelsea with a mixture of experience and youth will challenge on all fronts this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

We won the league not because we were great, but because United were poor. And that was 15 months ago. Also Lamps and Drogba were healthy.

Has anyone gotten younger and into a better shape all of a sudden.

It is pointless to judge the decision making of front office, we can't change them. We live by them. What irritates me is that their failures ends up in new manager turning up at Cobham.

So please, staying positive doesn't make you a "better fan". I go by AVB's words. He needed to add to midfield - didn't get one. OK. And how do you judge our dealings with expiring contracts?

We are basically giving Yossi away to Arsenal, Bosingwa's, Anelka's and Kalou's contracts are expiring at the end of the season. Letting them go for free? Nice

Agree0 Disagree0

I can't be bothered arguing with you and I never once said I was a 'better fan' for staying positive. I was only saying it is unfair to have a go at the club accusing them of not trying to sign the right players this transfer window, when it is clear that they have tried.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh you are very wrong. I am not accusing for not trying. All i am saying that for whatever effort you make 0 if you don't get the result - you are left with what you've got. If the front office and management acknowledges the problems, identifies the targets and gets nothing - you are left with the same aging squad, with same problems of breaking down stubborn defences. Generally our problems have just gotten older.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 20:41:42
Ed,
question on your post about Ganso,
surely there isnt enough time left to get a work permit for him before the deadline? {Ed002's Note - There would be no need to get a work permit beforehand - he qualifies easily. And he would only need one for when he arrives.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Im guessing that the deal proposed to Santos does not involve Ganso arriving in this window, but maybe in January or even later. {Ed002's Note - I don't know any details but suspect that would be up for discussion.}

{Ed002's Note - I understand that four separate offers have been made for Ganso in the past 48 hours and two of these are from British clubs (assume both are English). Santos have sufficient sponsorship to hold on to both Ganso and Neymar until the end of the season in December - but they are stuck after that. They have been given advice that says look for a deal to keep both until after the Olympics next summer and that guarantees a price thereafter as that should be enough to get additional sponsorship for the players. However, I understand that whilst Santos don't want to sell but that they will listen to offers. Much of this is new news but the same scenario as Ganso has his heart set on AC Milan or (it seems now) Barcelona. I don't see that either club are in a position to have made either one of the other bids. I am guessing Anzhi and a further bid from PSG. Chelsea are expecting the bid to be rejected, but it has not been yet. I don't hold out much hope. A final offer, including the one year loan back will be made for de Bruyne this evening - and it may have already gone in. Periera situation is unclear but there is a very nice gentleman empowered to discuss matters still in Portugal.} {Ed002's Note -

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Totally agree with this comment. There are rumours (yes I know rumours normally fame) of benayoun, kalou, Anelka, alex and malouda all leaving. AVB said he needs more midfielders n looks like benyaoun is a def to go so that would leave us even shorter. If anyone else leave would leave us short in them areas. Could there be ALOT deals being done behind scenes who knows. Buy surely we can't sell all these and not buy no1. Can still see it being a busy couple hours at Stamford bridge. I'm sure AVB knows what hes doing {Ed002's Note -

Are we going to get a creative midfielder? We really need one.

Modric is a NO go.
What about Moutinho?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

I think AVB knows that Moutinho is not worth 35M... He got him for like 12M last summer and Mountinho had an outstanding supporting cast last season. That team with AVB probably could have given Barcelona a tough match had they actually met last season. 35M is a lot to spend on a player who is unproven in the EPL.

Ed002: I highly appreciate your efforts on this site, but at the same time can't share your view unto some topics. I might not know some info you possess, therefor i judge from my knowledge.

Bruce Buck comes out with this marquee signing notion at almost every transfer window now, but unless Mata is a marquee signing, then i don't really see one.

AVB says he has a squad to challenge Barcelona. I love our manager, he brims with confidence, but i'm 33 years old also and i don't bite it one bit.

I have watched Barca play Villareal with 1 nominal defender and nine "forwards". They are in a league of their own.

I'm trying as much as i can to get exited when we buy the likes of Zhirkov and Benayoun, Bosingwa and the likes of them, for the club just to ship them out at first possibility. Please understand that there is also reasons to not be happy over our transfer activities and not just crap talk from someone who trats unability to sign Messis and Ronaldos as failure. {Ed002's Note - Efforts were made to sign Neymar, Sanchez and Pastore. I doubt Buck should be blamed for them not coming off. AVB will say lots of things that may or may not be true - I have warned of this before. Take everything with a pinch of salt. Benayoun came in to fill out the midfield and then got injured - assume he has gone. Zhrkov got injured and his international place was at risk. Bosingwa is a good player but there will be a different long term solution.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

ED002: I do not blame Buck for anything. He can't force them to come, neither can he change British climate, tax rates, etc.

I'm just sad we are after the top players and then in the final round they turn to be playing elsewhere and i'm left here with hours left till deadline trying to get excited about a slim chance of some belgian kid possibly coming of whom i've never heard before this window. Oh and we are about to loan him out.

I feel we lack fluidity not only on the pitch, but at the long term planning also. We have built a magnificent team of present, but unfortunately couldn't win the CL at it's peak. Now we do a wholesale makeover with Mata, Luiz, Ramires, Lukaku,Sturridge already in place for long term. But where is the balance? Now we have two types - either youngsters or 30 year olds.

Who are our players at their prime? Thought so. I don't want to critisize my team. I've loved it through thick and thin. And i was both excited when we signed Bogarde and Veron, so what do i know :) {Ed002's Note - So I get the feeling you don't care who joins as long as they are 25 - or is it 26?

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 16:59:33
hey ed,
with paulo henrique in england for the ghana friendly would a deal be possible? i know you have said ac milan is his preference but also that santos will probably have to sell one of him or neymar due to finacial difficulties paying both their wages.
is it just the fee or player demands (like neymar) that have stopped us pushing for this deal?

newbs {Ed002's Note - Santos are still trying to raise sponsorship to keep both - but they are only good until the end of the season - in December. I understand that AC Milan are still trying to obtain an addition non-Euro slot (At least they were last night). All Chelsea can do is try and figure out something for 2012 I would suspect. But I can say Chelsea are tiring of the process.}

Ed how likely is the following tonight:

OUT:
-Benayoun
-Anelka
-kakuta (loan)
-van aanholt (loan)
-malouda

IN:
-De Bruyne
-Pereira
-Ganso
-Modric

Also, are we trying to agree a deal for neymar. Thankks {Ed002's Note - Benayoun will go; Anelka may go; Malouda will stay; the loans I don't know but probably not PVA. De Bruyne and Periera are maybes and the others are rather less likely this evening}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

If this is so we still do not have another creative midfielder to back up Mata signing and would be loosing one in Benayoun. So I agree that not nearly enough done yet today to further freshen up squad, though certainly some promising youngsters signed for the future. Hope we are still ECL by then! But perhaps still time for a late surprise or two today?

Hi Ed, You mentioned Portugal and Belgium, i assume thats for Perriera and De Bryne??
What about a creative midfielder, We should have someone on the blower to Levy or someone in Holland snapping up WS. If we dont get some in then Mata has some serious work to do this season. And what about getting rid of Kalou and Anelka.. {Ed002's Note - I appreciate there are fans who don't want or are not happy with Mata and de Bruyne. Maybe Modric will sign later. There is a pretty good chance NIc Anelka will be gone later today.}

ED002 I cannot believe were at 6 hours 48 minutes until the transfer window shuts and not one creative midfielder has been signed, I feel sorry for Juan Mata as he will now have the sole responsibility to create for our side. I don't see the reasoning behind the efforts being made to sign Perreira i dont doubt he can add some much needed pace but not the guile we crucially need! Please tell me there is something happening! {Ed002's Note - Perhaps one will come later today to keep you happy.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

But the target in Belgium is Debryne who is not ready for first team duties and in portigal its another defensive player......CFC {Ed002's Note - Periera gives rather more than you think. It is a pity that the efforts to build for the future are disliked by so many.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think it is just me that would be happy to see one arrive any chelsea fan who has watched a game in the passed season or start of this would agree we need one. Perhaps Josh McEachran is going to suddenly be given a more prominant role this would appease my worries but again unfair to place that responsibility on such him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Efforts for the future are all well and good, but I expect AVB will be measured on his performance this season rather than one in 3 or 4 years time. No silverware = No Job?

Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy with the incoming signings thus far, just hoping for that one special signing later today. Fearful that the January transfer window will be too late. {Ed002's Note - AVB is under no threats.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed002 I very much like that we are building for the future and I never said that I did not. there is still a football season being played in the present though.

Agree0 Disagree0

ED002 Efforts for the future are much appreciated, but if today is not addressed, then we can challenge for CL on playstation3 at best. Have we had any success in bringing youngsters through i would take it as a plan. Now it is hard to accept it.

Agree0 Disagree0

We have bid for Aguero, Pastore, Sanchez. We have bids on the table for Neymar and Modric. I don't think anyone could accuse chelsea of not trying to bring creative players in!

Agree0 Disagree0

But at the end of the day it is not enough to sign one of those players who are terms as very best in their business...i really think we should build for the present and if we are strong at the present the future will come automatically...see the likes of Real Madrid,Barcelona everyone want to join these team because they are wining everything...and see arsenal the club clearly build a team for the future and now they lose their most valuable assets...as a fan i really can't think of such a situation of our club for the future...!!

He is with brazil right now. he should be fit now or avb wouldn't have allowed him to go.

Cool cheers dreamteam info

I can't honestly understand how David has been allowed to go back on International Duty. He has yet to represent Chelsea this season through an injury picked up while doing exactly this, and we have suffered for it.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Aug 2011 15:22:48
Hi ED! The whole transfer policy of Chelsea is signing young players and chasing Modric for 3 months. The young players are good for future. But how about the present? In two weeks we are going to face Man United at Old Trafford. Do you think that with such a game like with Norwich, West Brom we have any chances at Old Trafford? We are not solving the problems in the middle and wings. The players we have signed so far are forwards. I think we will fight for the 3rd place with Liverpool. If we want to have some chances we have to bring bright players like Sneider and pay him what he wants. I don't want to think about clash with Barca or Real in Champions League. They will tear us! We have to be realistic.Today is the last day, and we are still having Kalou, Anelka, Malouda...They should have been thrown long long before. {Ed002's Note - Young is subjective. Mata has been signed and efforts are still being made elsewhere. Chelsea's policy during the summer is not as you suggest with efforts being made for a number of players.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

Though i'm out an out Chelsea fan but this time i can't ignore what you have said...we should have more active in this transfer market because our main problem arise i believe in the middle of the season as your old ones doesn't get going as they start...Chelsea for life

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't forget we signed 2 internationals at Christmas also Ramires has come good. We have tried on a number of others. Sneijder wants to much and i guess would mean the other senior players want an increase if he came to us. Also Man city can outbid anyone and probably have hampered our chances with a couple of players. I think we needed a play maker more than anything and I'm sure AVB realises this but Levy has stuck his foot down and been backed into his own corner by his initial statement when he said modric would not be sold.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2011 15:21:57

31 Aug 2011 14:26:08
Ed - How does the process of signing a player actually work ? {Ed002's Note - Clubs will typically informally ask an agent (a) if the player is going to be available, and (b) would the player consider a move to the club. If the answer is yes, it is then necessary for the club to approach the player's club to ask if they would be willing to sell and if they would grant permission to speak to a player's agent and possibly even the player. This will typically involve either broadly (through an offer) or actually agreeing a fee and responsibility for any significant costs (agents fees etc.). Once this has happened the club will be able to speak to the player's agent and perhaps the player himself to look at the package that will be involved. So many players are looked at and discussed at a high-level with agents and clubs; a subset of those have an offer placed; a subset of those involve discussions with the player's club; a subset of those involve discussions over terms, and; a subset of those go ahead.}

How can u say we have to many wide players? The only decent one we have is Mata, we have nothing to offer down the right what so ever! Sturridge does not want to play wide right he has said that himself, besides even if he did he wouldnt be as affective as say a Lennon or a Tevez.

Heard about 30m bid for Ribery, ED is it true? {Ed002's Note - I don't know about it, but it is possible. I have no confirmation at all, but there was an enquiry about another Bayern Munich player.}

Believable1 Unbelievable1

Who did we enquire about?

Agree0 Disagree0

Robben?

Was the other bayern munich player Robben?

That player being?

Kroos? Muller? Schweinsteiger? Return of Robben? Would love it to be Robben. Does he still have the same injury issues?

Hi Ed, Harry is up to his old tricks again. Quoting on SSN that Modric is staying 100%. I think He wants to sell Modric but Levy is the one pulling the strings. .....I think you'll hear at 22.59, Modric signs for Chelsea. Come on.

reckon we should tempt city with a swap deal involving torres and tevez!

Believable0 Unbelievable5

Torres would hit form again at City due to all of there creative players. That's all Chelsea need, some creative players to play behind Torres. We already have Mata, but I feel that we need at least one more.

Lot of rumours over the United page that Modric is going there. SAF has been ignoring all bids for Berbatov, but supposedly a few came through today including Spurs. Berbatov to be used in a switch + cash deal for Modric. Seems fairly likely, or at least just as likely as Chelsea. What do you guys think?

Got a feeling Chelsea are in for a busy day, remember cfc always try for a big deal on last day and it may not be Modric, watch out for the falling to possibly arrive.

*Hamsik
*Modric
*Hulk
*Pato

one of the above would make the last day a cracking day for the super blues.

*Neymar and Ganso to be signed in January for a combined fee of 92 million, deal is nearly in place.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

Hey where do you find this rumour from that Neymar and Ganso is going to join us in January when ganso cleary stated that he wants a move to Seria A Club.

BETS, BETS, BETS PLACE YA BETS FOLKS.
LESS THAN 24HOURS TO GO!

Modric tops of list at evs
Hazard's 14/1
Ronaldo 100/1
Van der weil 10/2
Pereira 4/5
Tevey 50/2

Lol! Ktbffh!

Believable2 Unbelievable2

I hope they do

Agree0 Disagree0

A.Pereira will have a hard play to leave Porto at any price. It's written in portuguese papers that Lukaku will be part of the business. I don't believe Porto wants a good forward but without experience to substitute for Falcao. It's also written that if it fails, it will be Pavlyuchenko who will sign. In that case, A.Pereira will only leave for around 30M. Oh, do you still believe in Torres, Ed? I don't ;(. How much better Falcao would have been! I've seen every single match last season and it's really a pearl! Modric? Some doubts...

Agree0 Disagree0

Going by you list perreira tops it, hes odds on

Chelsea prepared to bid 25 mill for Eden Hazard, however if Lille agree to take Salamon Kalou as part of the deal Chelsea have agreed to pay them a extra 25 mill. :p
Anyways onto the real stuff Pereira deal close his international teamate Lugano had a press conference for his national team earlier and he advised that Pereira was joining Chelsea. Modric could go down to the wire, will Levy crack? lets see if he really does have the bottle

Believable2 Unbelievable3

Hazard will not leave this summer.
Modric to Chelsea is dead.

Ribery to sign if chelsea meet valuation of 36 million? What you think ed? {Ed018's Note - i just heard this report and if it is true Chelsea can meet that valuation if they choose. but i feel like ribery is a player who has struggled to stay healthy and isnt what he was 2 years ago}

Believable3 Unbelievable3

I dont rate him very high.

Agree0 Disagree0

Plus his personal issues make this a rather unattractive deal for Chelsea.

Agree0 Disagree0

Another Lm dont think so

Agree0 Disagree0

Ribery is past it. He chose to stay in Germany. I thought he'd move to Chelsea a couple years ago, but don't believe the hype this time around.

Ambramovic would be stupid to buy an aging winger. That is your issue already. Need to buy young players.
