It's all gone quiet on Drinkwater?
Anyone heard anything?
Think he would be an important signing for us.

Don't worry, Chelsea will 'ZAP' Drinkwater to Stamford Bridge. Our luck just turned for the good- with this ZAPACOSTA deal.


2.) 31 Aug 2017 16:02:00
Drinkwater is actually key signing, today.


3.) 31 Aug 2017 16:14:54
Leceister City are looking for a replacement before they can sell. Chelsea delayed this deal so much, but fingers crossed.


4.) 31 Aug 2017 17:09:39
Agree antibot . Drinkwater is the most important signing we can realistically make today. Hope we get him.
Ed018 what do you think?

{Ed018's Note - I think Drinkwater would be a good signing. I hope they can get it finalized}

Deal will happen.

I read that Marin has signed for Olympiacos. Is that correct couldn't see anything on Chelsea website.
Good move for him, unfortunately never took off at Chelsea
If true all the best.

Article into why a Chelsea / Sarri combination will not give what we expect.

It depends how you want to see it, there are other, websites that say his napoli team play the best football in the world and its all his doing, different articles different opinions, i guess we got a choice the negative article or the positive one, i've personally chosen the positive version.

Hi Cat
To be fair the article states that Sarri is a fantastic manager. It doubts the ability of our players to have the positional awareness and continuous work ethic to be able to play in his style. Watch the videos attached to the article I personally can't see our current group of players pulling it off. Hope I'm wrong as I think Napoli play great football and would love to see us emulate it.

As it looks like Loftus Cheek, s injury is worse than expected and may need surgery. Will he return to Chelsea for the treatment?
Hope he recovers well. Bad luck for the lad feel bad for him.

Just finished work. still no news on Drinkwater. Hope it goes through. He will be such an important signing.

Sale confirmed. That was a tidy piece of business. Welcome to Chelsea Danny and Zapdos.


2.) 01 Sep 2017 01:41:49
He signs. Goodnight guys, we will have a good season.

Hi eds.
I know you don't like to talk about the money side of the game and I know it doesn't affect us as fans. Hiwever do you see an end to the stupid prices that are getting thrown around or will it continue.
If the european break away league ever happens will this end the silly spending in England due to the money leaving with the other league? Obviously I know very little about this but am just interested if there is an end in sight if these huge fees being thrown around.

BIGPHIL

{Ed002's Note - It will indeed reshape the financial side of things.}


1.) 28 Jul 2017 21:04:07
Too right ed. I see this transfer window being the beginning of a massive clamp down on money. Its out of control. I can't see a way out. Time will tell.


2.) 30 Jul 2017 13:43:30
An interesting development will be Brexit - especially for the football league.

Hi Question for Ed001 but any other eds please feel free ti give your opinion.
Regarding Chelseas young players and their game time, especialy looking at the likes of traore. Is it a case of Chelsea not giving them a chance, them not being thought of as good enough by the club or the players themselves not willing to do the loan time to prove they can play in the EPl elite.
Is it a flaw with our system or the players not willing to wait for their opporunity.
Many thanks.

BIGPHIL

{Ed001's Note - it is a mix of a number of things. It is not as easy to get them loan moves in the Prem, as clubs do not want a player that they cannot play twice a season, so weakening them against a team they really do not want to be weakened against.

There is a lack of opportunity, due to the stakes the club is playing for. It is difficult to take a chance on youth players, who are always going to be inconsistent and trust them to win games on a regular basis.

Also the players themselves have the wrong attitude, wanting assurances rather than earning their chances.}


1.) 08 Jun 2017 08:37:07
Thanks very much for the very quick reply. I appreciate your view on this.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate. It is very difficult to give a definitive answer as each case is different.}

Sky have listed the possible 10. we are only involved in Zouma to Everton.
Still been a great window.
Very happy with what we have done.
Looking forward to another season.

Thanks to the Eds for your stella work, enjoy a well earned nap before the season starts tomorrow.

There is a chance that Jody loves our club and would rather stay with us for a long time in his current role. Otherwise he will get a chance at the big job and be gone after two maybe three seasons. Also why would we want to lose his expertise at developing our youth. If he wants the job I would be all for him being given a chance but I feel he can help our club development better in his current role.

I agree. I miss the old game but that has gone the way of the dodo and the dinosaurs. I hope the people in charge of the transfers start to allow the loan army and the youth to fill the squad roles and spend big on one player a season who can improve the first 11. That is the change I hope for. we know we will always have a change of manager pretty regularly. Even before Roman took over this was the case. When was the last time we had a manager the lasted longer than 4 seasons? We have never really had a Ferguson or a Wenger and Undoubtedly we ever will. So whilst some changes will be needed in the recruitment process I don't believe allowing the manager that choice is the way to go for our club.

To he fair this has been our business model for a very long time and it has brought us success. We know our head coaches do not have a great deal of input into the players brought in. We have a team of people who look into that. I am sure there are lots of people who would prefer to have a manager who is in control of the transfers however this is not the way the club works and will not be changing its way anytime soon. I can only assume any coach coming in is aware of this information. (All information has been read from this site etc. I could have the wrong end of the stick-eds correct me if I am wrong)

I agree that Costa would of been invaluable this season. However his attitude throughout his Chelsea career is what caused him to go, nothing else. Would of loved to have kept Matic that was a big loss.
Again can't argue that we could of done with fortifying our team. However I still think too many of our players either have to much sway or just stir up trouble if things aren't done to their liking. It seems that when we seem unable to win the league we start to give up.

How many times has a manager gone for "losing the dressing room" how many complaints about tactics or over work etc. maybe just maybe there is a common denominator into why the players stop playing for different managers. if only we could figure it out. (Only my views. could easily be wrong)
