More news about CHO going to Bayern on loan. entering decisive stage (apparently) according to Christian Falk.

CFCAdam

1.) 02 Oct 2020 18:36:38
I don’t believe the story Adam.

I just can’t see us allowing CHO to leave in this window.


2.) 02 Oct 2020 18:42:06
Well Ed002 already debunked this yesterday, but why on earth would he go when they have Gnabry, Sané, Coman, Davies and Musiala. Non-story.


3.) 02 Oct 2020 18:50:16
Falk has said untrue stories before, remember Mason not being happy? This false as well.


4.) 02 Oct 2020 18:59:33
I'm with you Tom and RJ. I hope you're right.


5.) 02 Oct 2020 19:15:54
Not that I want him to go, but does anyone think he will do better at a club like Bayern? can't see him getting much game time ahead of Gnabry, Sane and Coman.


 

 

02 Oct 2020 13:28:32
Ed002, please ignore if you don’t want to answer, but with only 3 days left of the window, do you think Chelsea will make an offer to West Ham for Rice? It’s pretty obvious they need the money, but just not sure if we’ve left it too late. Many thanks for all your info this summer. Been great 👍🏼.

CFCAdam

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed in that the coach would like the player and WHU expect an offer but unless it is too good to turn down, they would turn it down.}


1.) 02 Oct 2020 13:46:26
Lovely, thanks Ed002. Appreciate that. Have a good weekend.

{Ed002's Note - And you.}


2.) 02 Oct 2020 18:40:54
Zzzzzzzz.

Roll on Monday evening.


3.) 02 Oct 2020 22:01:23
Have I got this all wrong, but all this talk of the window closing on Monday, is this not just for international transactions? If we were to go for Rice, haven't we got another couple of weeks?


4.) 02 Oct 2020 22:56:59
We can buy from Championship I believe for 2 weeks after. (I think! )


 

 

27 Aug 2020 09:45:42
Ed002, are there any teams interested in the following players that could be sold by Chelsea?

Barkley,
Drinkwater,
Michy,
Kepa - not sure if you will answer him as he’s part of the defensive side.


I know of the interest in Emerson (Inter), Bakayoko (Milan) .

Thanks Ed, as always.

CFCAdam

{Ed002's Note - There is plenty of interest in Batshuayi.}


1.) 27 Aug 2020 12:33:29
Great stuff. Just caught up on other post too. Thanks Ed002.


2.) 27 Aug 2020 12:46:06
What’s happening with Moses Ed002 - is he joining Inter?

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}


 

 

14 Aug 2020 22:19:16
{Ed002's Note - Don’t forget, Chelsea already has £50M coming in for Morata’s sale in the summer, £12M or so from Pasalic. Plus an additional £9M for Hector, Lamptey and Clinton Mola being sold in January and assorted loan fees totally a little more than £1M.

Kepa Arrizabalaga (G) no decision yet but Chelsea has a list of possible replacements that they are looking at – right now don’t expect him to leave
Jamal Blackman (G) now 26 and wants to be playing will be likely made available after a loan to Bristol Rovers
Willy Caballero (G) out of contract in the summer but will be offered a one year deal.
Tariq Lamptey (RB) gone to Brighton after turning down offers from Lille and PSG
Marcos Alonso (LB) will likely move in the summer
Baba Rahman (LB) will be made available
Davide Zappacosta (LWB) will be available if fully fit
Juan Castillo (LB) Ajax will likely take up their option to buy
Jake Clarke-Salter (CB) club to discuss his future with him - interest remains from Germany and I suspect Championship sides
Marc Guehi (CB) loan to Swansea
Josh Grant (CB/ FB) will move to Plymouth
Matt Miazga (CB) will be made available – recovery from injury will need to be checked first
Michael Hector (CB) joined Fulham
N'Golo Kante (DM/ CM) there will be interest but could be priced out of a move

Tiemoue Bakayoko (DM/ CM) Monaco may take up their option to buy - else available for sale
Mario Pasalic (CM) will join Atalanta in the summer
Danny Drinkwater (CM) Chelsea want him moved on and a loan to Aston Villa gives a short term solution – but he will be gone in the summer
Tariq Uwakwe (CM) Should have got a January loan and the be assessed in the summer – but a year long loan may help him the – Hull are very keen
Danilo Pantic (CM) Fehervar wanted to take up their option and then sell him on – but he returned to Chelsea – expect a sale in the summer
George McEachran (CM) HG status will be secured with 6 more months in England - so a loan to SC Cambuur until the summer
Conor Gallagher (CM) loan to Swansea
Kenedy (LM/ LW/ LB) Getafe will take up their option in all probability and may sell him on
Marco van Ginkel (CM/ AM) Chelsea would like to keep him but a new contract and a slightly complex deal with PSV might be possible
Lewis Baker (CM) FD will not take up their option and Chelsea will look to get what they can for him.
Ross Barkley (CM/ AM) has had his head down for a couple of years but has been playing up lately - Chelsea will look to move him on with RLC near fitness (although he may never be able to play a full match or consecutive full matches)
Nathan (LW/ AM) contract extension and another year at Atletico Mineiro
Izzy Brown (AM/ F) not happening for him - will be available
Victor Moses (RW) available in the summer after a loan to Fenebace and Inter. Inter have an option to buy him.
Pedro (RW)
Willian (RW/ LW) Chelsea want him to stay and Willian wants to stay - the offer is a one year deal and then a discussion next year against the desired 2 year deal.
Lucas Piazon (LW) wants to stay in England - probably will be available - no option for Rio Ave
Michy Batshuayi (S) Chelsea have no interest in letting him go in January and will need to talk to him about his future - there is support to keep him at the club
Charley Musonda (S) will likely need to drop down a level or two - available
Ike Ugbo (F) expect another loan
Olivier Giroud (S) has a number of offers but will move in the summer when his contract runs out – Inter want OG or Mertens.

1.) 15 Aug 2020 10:55:32
Ed002, is this still largely the case? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Sure.}


2.) 15 Aug 2020 17:21:59
Thanks Ed.


 

 

04 Aug 2020 09:56:56
Ed002, with the reports coming out that Kante is one player that could be sold this summer, what other clubs are looking to maybe buy him please? I personally think it’s the right time now as his injuries seem to be adding up. Also, is there any plan for RLC, any chance he may go out for a loan to build his fitness up or prove his fitness rather?

Thanks as always.

CFCAdam

{Ed002's Note - Inter and PSG have enquired. Wages will be an issue for Inter who have a preferred option, but if an acceptable offer is made and the player wants to leave, Chelsea will not stand in his way.

Loftus-Cheek is not lacking or needing to prove his fitness.}


1.) 04 Aug 2020 12:07:50
Imagine selling our only world class player.


2.) 04 Aug 2020 12:17:48
• Kante is only world class in a two man midfield and we don’t play that way now unless we stick to 3-4-3. Long term Frank wants 4-3-3 with two attacking 8’s either side of a CDM.

• Controversial but if we got 60 mil plus I’d sell him for Rice. Kante’s injuries are getting way to frequent and getting Rice in would give us an extra presence and height at set pieces too which were really struggling with. Rice and Havertz are both 6 feet + it would be great if we could dominate midfield again like when we had Ballack and Essien as powerful players in the centre. Along with Zouma and a new CB and GK that would make us strong on set pieces again (Our biggest weakness) .


3.) 04 Aug 2020 12:49:24
Imagine having a player who can only play in 50% of the games. Age not on his side, hamstring injuries and his overall game is based on running constantly, chasing, harassing. Yes he’s world class, but what’s the point of having a world class player who spends half his time on the injury bench.


4.) 04 Aug 2020 13:08:37
Great points Adam agree thoroughly 👍🏻 If you want to get to the top again you have to be ruthless if they’re injured most of the time just sell. Think Loftus-Cheek is on borrowed time you can only wait so long for these guys to recover or get to that next level I. e Christensen who ain’t good enough and needs to be sold.


5.) 04 Aug 2020 13:12:22
i remember before he joined chelsea think ed002 said that he would of liked to join psg so possible to them as guessing they have money and he would be willing to join them.


6.) 04 Aug 2020 13:35:49
WC68, I’m with you. I’d take that £60m too and stick it straight into a bid for Rice. His height, versatility, and leadership wins it over for me.

I also like the signing of Lewis Dunk. Another leader, adds height and isn’t afraid of attacking the ball. Reminds me of Cahill. Not a big name at all, but neither was Cahill at the time and look what he achieved!


7.) 04 Aug 2020 14:24:41
I wouldn’t go for Dunk Adam as we’ll be back in the market not long after as I don’t think Dunk will suit Frank’s high line but it could work 🤷🏼‍♂️ Agree thoroughly on Rice though I’m a big fan 👍🏻 Wouldn’t mind Rice as our leader at CB to be honest then maybe target Zakaria as a new DM.


8.) 04 Aug 2020 14:34:41
Kante struggled with injuries early on as Sarri played him all the time when he wasn’t fit, half for for a final. akimg injuries worse, and kante isn’t only world class in a two, his world class and would get into almost every team, the fact his world class in a two should be more reason to build around him, get him a partner who can cover ground and contribute rather than slow Jorginho and kovecic, non of whom Other anything With the ball and all play in that position,


9.) 04 Aug 2020 14:44:49
I don’t think Dunk is that slow. As I said yesterday, he can ping a good long ball, particularly with his right foot but he is not hopeless with his left.

He is also a leader and we definitely need one or two of them.


10.) 05 Aug 2020 15:29:54
You have short memories guys. Kante played nearly every game for last 4 seasons. He gets injured in this one (rushed early for few games too) and suddenly you wouldn't mind selling him) .

Loads of Rubbish. He is one of our best players and should stay with us.


11.) 05 Aug 2020 22:57:45
We must keep some of our best and most experienced players and both Kante and Willian fit that description.

Lampard in.

That is all.

Hoping nothing changes and he’s given a good deal of time. We went on a 16 match unbeaten run only a month before. Players look tired, city had over nearly 10 days off. We didn’t. We’ll get there, let’s hope the board see that too.

Up the Chels and stay safe people!

CFCAdam

1.) 04 Jan 2021 12:03:57
If city had time off and we have had a busy schedule, why were we pressing them so much while they knocked it about us, I’d of liked to have been compact and solid and counter attack, not press high up then cross to werner, in that unbeaten run we drew to united and spurs and Sevilla, other games in there were draws to Southampton West Brom Rennes trasnador and wind v Barnsley Burnley Sheffield United Newcastle, all bottom half teams, I wasnn by pleased we were back to basics and looked solid, we’ve gone backwards,


2.) 04 Jan 2021 12:15:26
I too want him to stay and turn it around, but he has to start helping himself with his team selections.

I have no clue why Werner keeps on starting. Clearly he's in a rough patch and is giving Lampard very little on the pitch. Callum has been our best winger yet gets benched the moment Ziyech is fit. Tammy as well, he's been our best striker this season yet Werner is preferred up front.

Lampard needs to play the guys that are performing, not the guys that cost the most in transfer fees.

Yesterday was a horrible first half, with a disaster class from both Kovacic and Kante. The players also need to take responsibility at this point, especially the experienced ones. All of them have to be better, coaches and players. The good part is, I'm convinced they all can be better. Title challenge is out the window, but top 4 is still attainable if they get their act together.


3.) 04 Jan 2021 12:16:23
Also, DM like Soumare or recalling Ampadu in January would improve us a lot (though I realize recalling Ampadu might not be an option in the agreement)


4.) 04 Jan 2021 13:30:59
As one of the Ed’s mentioned before, I don’t think Kante works in this team anymore. Or something along those
Lines. And it’s true, struggles under pressure with simple 5-10 yard passes. I agree on CHO playing, Ziyech - Giroud should be the duo either starting together or coming on together. Pumping balls into the box with a 5ft 11 Werner won’t work, unless he’s arriving late at the back from the wing.

Regarding pressuring - that’s what we’ve always done against City and it’s worked, shuttle for 10-15mins, have a break and defend tightly - that’s what didn’t happen. Then means we have to press more.


5.) 04 Jan 2021 13:36:20
Think you need to calm down and lower your expectations Matt. Top 4 minimum is all that is needed for this season again and to blood in the new signings. What you think we should be beating everyone because we spent so much money in the summer? Really. 😳🙄🤦🏼‍♂️ Football doesn’t work like that I’m afraid. We are still a team in transition, no where near the finished product.

We’ve hit a bump in the road. and? We were top in December if I remember correctly, this season is all over the place, with teams dropping points everywhere, look where Arsenal where, United where, a few wins, a bit of confidence back and bang. They kick on again. It will happen with us too. Still a long way to go.


6.) 04 Jan 2021 14:18:57
Hoping nothing changes lol says it all.


7.) 04 Jan 2021 14:34:58
I don’t think expecting us to be better than last season after having a full season and £220m investment in better players is high expectations, I’d say it’s a bare minimum.


8.) 04 Jan 2021 14:57:52
Jackson - if Tammy is our best striker we’re doomed.


9.) 04 Jan 2021 15:18:37
Agree Jimbo. Thank god we have an ambitious owner.


10.) 04 Jan 2021 15:21:55
Yep nothing needs changing. What a surprise you want changes and big ones.

Stick to playing fifa mate where everything works instantly. Jeez, some people have been so spoilt with the success we’ve been accustomed too.

Some of us had to wait years for a decent side, and I for one would be more then willing to give this manager and this set of exciting young players ample time to deliver.

{Ed047's Note - just had to edit your post a little Adam. Stay chilled mate. 🙂


11.) 04 Jan 2021 15:41:07
Fair enough. Cheers Ed047. Just so difficult sometimes. 👍🏼.

{Ed047's Note - I know mate and no probs.


12.) 04 Jan 2021 15:41:50
I think we’re exciting now, especially when we work ball out wide and cross to our shortest player, or when we get thumped at home against city, not as if pep changes things up a lot.

Not as if we all know cities losses come from being compact and counter attacked, exciting watch arsenal play there way back into confidence, but it’s frank first season so we should see how it pans out, not as if we’re worse than last year and have a worst squad, not like werners confidence is rock bottom and been hauled of at half time and frank JR mount plays every game and every minute despite performance, frank in, results aside we play some beautiful football.


13.) 04 Jan 2021 16:34:46
Ahh time from a break here too. Jeez, social media is sooo draining. Take care Eds, Posters.

{Ed047's Note - and you Adam, hope to see you back soon mate.


14.) 04 Jan 2021 17:31:43
Never played fifa in my life and supported cfc since 1978 so I think I have been patient.


 

 

31 Dec 2020 07:01:49
Why are "fans" so quick to call for the managers head? Why can't we give a manager time? 18 months really isn't that long for a project to really kick on., especially with many new players, no real pre season and a very much congested season. Bearing in mind Timo, Kai, Hakim, have never experienced playing so many games in such a short amount of time, with very little rest in between. Think some of us need to be a little bit less demanding, its a project not an overnight completion. Will take time, we have a manager who is still learning and will continue to learn, I'm all for that. We will get there. Back Frank, back the players and back the project. Up the Chels!

3.) 31 Dec 2020 08:16:21
Great post Adam and so true as well. Sadly, some newer fans are not very patient and think managing an elite level side is as simple as playing on their xbox😁 I think we all know who he is😏
Lampard is learning and mistakes will happen but he needs time to see it through, at least until the end of this season.
Happy new year mate.


4.) 31 Dec 2020 11:20:28
Great post Adam. That is certainly true.


5.) 31 Dec 2020 11:32:53

Evening Ed002, hope you’ve had a good weekend so far. Quick question, do you expect any new incomings before window shuts? Thanks.

CFCAdam

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get dragged in to such questions.}


1.) 04 Oct 2020 20:03:33
No worries. 🤙🏼.


 

 

21 Aug 2020 09:11:44
Ed002, do you know what’s happening with Tomori? Talks about him being loaned out or even sold. I thought he was going to the one to step up this season coming. Thanks.

CFCAdam

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea know what they want to do with Tomori.}


1.) 21 Aug 2020 17:35:29
I really like Tomori. But I think he’ll be sold. I think Christensen should be the first to go! Great in the ball, but positonal play not the best. And he’s such a baby. We need someone tough, and a leader.


2.) 21 Aug 2020 17:42:54
And what is that Ed002, if you’d like to share? I’m hoping we don’t sell him as think he’s a great prospect. Thanks again.


 

 

11 Aug 2020 08:37:38
Haha people moaning about Havertz’s lack of energy last night, seem to be forgetting that this boy is on the verge of joining one of the biggest clubs in the world and wouldn’t want to jeopardise his move. Surely people can understand that!

CFCAdam

1.) 11 Aug 2020 09:40:52
I have to agree 100% Adam.

Its clear the player wants Chelsea and his mind wasn't up to the task yesterday. He came across disinterested at times and his goal celebration reflected.

I'm wondering whether it is due to the fee not being agreed etc. His mind seems elsehwere 💙.


2.) 11 Aug 2020 09:56:15
Exactly 👏.


3.) 11 Aug 2020 10:22:50
Also shows on this site the people who moaned about Havertz last night watched him for the first time whereas they’ve been wanting him on here for a good while since the links. Very contradictive posters on this site I’ve noticed 🤷🏼‍♂️.


4.) 11 Aug 2020 10:26:38
I think it’s perfectly reasonable to make the comment that his work rate in last nights game was poor.

That’s not a criticism of how he plays generally because there won’t be many people who have watched him over a season and that certainly applies to me but it is fair to say in last nights game he was strolling.


5.) 11 Aug 2020 11:40:51
Since we were linked with Havertz, I have watched him in 4 or 5 games - I have to say from what I've seen, I just don't get it. Last night he was particularly poor but he hasn't been much better in the other games. Fingers crossed I'm wrong but at £75m I'd be expecting more.

Also, I still don't know what position he plays - winger? No 10? Certainly not box to box.

7.) 11 Aug 2020 12:07:53
I think he is a No10 and that’s also the best position for RLC in my opinion but then Ruben has this ongoing back problem.

As soon as he signs for us he will automatically become the best player in the world as far as I’m concerned.

Not sure where you’ve got your info from. But can’t see CHO going anywhere. Rudiger will go - just like Luiz went last year.
