Hey Ed002, long time no speak. Just wondering if there’s any chance you know and can provide an update on who chelsea maybe willing to move on in the summer.

Sorry if I’ve missed it already.




{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.) 28 Feb 2020 08:41:21
I think outgoings are definitely the more important. I think selling Kante is questionable but the right choice. Think we’d get around 60m for him. He just doesn’t fit this system and we need an out an out DM.

For outgoings mine would be Caballero (Kepa as back up unless we find a buyer? ), Rudiger, Emerson or Alonso, Kante, Barkley, Willian, Pedro, Giroud, Batshuayi

We also need to trim the loan army to players who are not going to make it here need moving on or we can’t find buyers. Pasalic and Hector deals are already agreed. So I’d also try to move on, Blackman, Baba, Miazga, Baker, Van Ginkel, Drinkwater, Bakayoko and Kenedy.

2.) 27 Feb 2020 22:09:27
Wow, thanks so much. Appreciate that 👍🏼.

3.) 27 Feb 2020 22:48:46
Ed002, possible to ask if Chelsea have a buyback in place for Lamptey?

{Ed002's Note - No they don't.}

4.) 27 Feb 2020 23:01:01
Brilliant Ed thank you.

5.) 28 Feb 2020 05:52:48
Thanks for the update ed002.

6.) 28 Feb 2020 21:16:38
Financially we should be in a very very good position to strengthen.

7.) 28 Feb 2020 21:14:04
Thanks Ed. Very interesting.

8.) 29 Feb 2020 07:04:05
Did that dude actually just say we should sell kante.

9.) 01 Mar 2020 17:09:48
Thanks ED002 v impressive info, much appreciated. Yes that dude did say we should sell Kante which to my mind seems absolutely crazy. rather play the man in his best position again.



01 May 2019 07:24:09
Morning ed002, hope you’re well. Any chance of having a major write up please for Chelsea. Thanks in advance!


{Ed002's Note - I am afraid there won't be any write ups about Chelsea Adam.}

1.) 01 May 2019 17:16:07
Ed, there has to be something we can do to change your mind. A bottle of gin as a gesture of peace and goodwill maybe? :)

The real fans already suffered for long, we don't want to do that again just when things were looking a little less bleak.

{Ed002's Note - It is best I say nothing - which is fine given I apparently know nothing.}

2.) 01 May 2019 19:49:29
The ones who read what you talk about know what you know and what you don't. You shouldn't concern yourself with the rest anyways.

3.) 01 May 2019 22:15:12
What he said ^^^.

4.) 01 May 2019 22:58:43
Damn, shame Ed002. Ok mate, take care anyway 🤘🏼.

5.) 01 May 2019 23:01:54
ed please don't leave us when we need you most, a lot here that want to hear your wisdom and great info you give, don't let idiots ruin it for the good ones on here please, much appreciated 🙏🏻.

6.) 03 May 2019 06:41:26
Well don't really know if right now is the time we need him the most, since we're probably not even allowed to sign anyone ;) Let's everyone enjoy a nice friday, perhaps with a beer or two. Cheers, everyone - good times are ahead!



11 Apr 2019 07:46:02
Ed002, on another page you’ve mentioned that Pulisic isn’t a direct replacement for Hazard. Would Hudson-Odoi be Hazards replacement as and when he leaves? Hope you’re well.




{Ed002's Note - Right, they play in different positions. Chelsea are planning for Hudson-Odoi to be one of the wingers for next season.}

1.) 11 Apr 2019 09:12:18
Good news :) can't wait to see Callum and Captain America go to work on the flanks!

2.) 11 Apr 2019 10:24:32
Still need another quality option Willian and Pedro are not good enough and declining more all the time. If we can't get Pepe maybe Leon Bailey or Chiesa or someone else young, fast and direct. Id sell Willian if we can get a good sum and use Pedro as 4th choice.

3.) 11 Apr 2019 10:32:32
Sweet. Thanks Ed002. We’ve the chance of having a good backbone to the team again in Kepa, Christensen, Loftus, Cheek and Hudson Odoi.

I also seem to recall you saying that Chelsea had higher hopes for Ugbo rather then Abraham. Is that still the case as he seems to have gone quiet on his front.

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Someone else has come through instead. I don't expect Abraham to stay and an offer will be made for him.}

4.) 11 Apr 2019 11:16:31
Presume it's Redan but there's a good chance even he will leave.

{Ed002's Note - Right.}

5.) 11 Apr 2019 11:53:06
I still think we should give Tammy a real shot with our first team. He's got a nose for goals that you can't teach.

Strong, fast, intelligent movement, pretty good touch and good passing. He's got it all. It'd be a real shame if we sell him without at least trying him out.

Redan is apparently really good, but I can't see him being given a shot, and as BlueDragon alluded to he'll probably look to leave as well : (.

6.) 11 Apr 2019 13:31:14
Just shows how we all see players differently. I think Redan is average. The best youngster I’ve seen in kids football this year is lad from from Utd. I think his name was Greenwood.

7.) 11 Apr 2019 13:14:43
Ed is the offer for abraham going to be from leipzig? And is redan going to renew or is he leaving? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - (1) Yes. (2) All options are open.}

8.) 11 Apr 2019 16:08:47
Ed imo with a lot of our youngsters and loanees we should sell with a buyback clause like with Boga, will we be seeing more of these deals? Say for Abraham and others?

{Ed002's Note - Forget any clauses. It is not a "buyback" clause with Boga or any others - it is not how it works.}

9.) 11 Apr 2019 21:11:46
I will be very happy next year if we have Da Silva James redan all around the first team squad is there any other youngsters we’re looking to integrate if you don’t mind answering please Ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea are not going to integrate all the kids next seasons.}

10.) 12 Apr 2019 14:16:04
James, RLC and CHO have unreal potential in my eyes but I don’t rate Mount and Abraham like others.

11.) 12 Apr 2019 18:10:02
Thanks for the reply Ed002 much appreciated mate.



11 Mar 2019 19:37:52
hi Ed002, Any truth that N'Golo Kante wants out of the club?


{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of him telling the club that he wants to leave, but as in the case of most players if there were interest from high profile clubs he might well have to consider his future.}

1.) 11 Mar 2019 21:13:00
I don't blame any high profile player that wants to leave cos the Chelsea team that we have now is barely a shadow of the team that brought glory to the club (whom every good player want to be a part of; and made the club very attractive to players) .
Top players wants to keep winning things and when it doesn't look like that's possible or when it doesn't seem like the club doesn't look like showing any ambition, then don't blame top players for wanting to leave.

2.) 12 Mar 2019 07:50:09
The team we have did bring glory to us. 2 league titles.

3.) 12 Mar 2019 15:13:52
Not this team! 4 or 5 players were involved but unfortunately the rest aren’t!



25 Jan 2019 08:34:47
Morning Ed’s. Do we know if there’s anymore incomings this window? I’d imagine there is, but cannot think of any names off top of my head. Thanks.


{Ed001's Note - still looking to bring in a midfielder.}

1.) 25 Jan 2019 10:29:04
Forgive my insistence but I thought Chelsea had approached Zenith for Leandro Paredes? I'm really interested in this particular player because I feel he's ideal quality for our midfield needs.
Please share your thoughts as I heard PSG is also keen on the playet.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know about whether or not they made an approach, only that they are interested in him.}

2.) 25 Jan 2019 11:15:44
Hi Ed, good afternoon; with Barcelona buying Frankie De jong (to resume in the summer) it looks like Rabiot might not be going to Barcelona anymore; and I'm hearing this morning that Chelsea is interested in Rabiot and want to do a deal for him this January. My question Ed is- how true is it? and do you think he will be a good fit to replace Fabregas (considering the profile of player that Sarri wants for that role)

{Ed001's Note - Rabiot has pretty much sold himself to Barca and been a bit of an arse about it. I still think he will go there on a free as it allows them to recoup money selling others.}

3.) 26 Jan 2019 20:46:07
any names were looking at ed?

{Ed001's Note - nothing has changed, though Brozovic is looking to leave Inter so I would not be surprised if he became a target. Might be the summer before they let him go though, as they will hope to persuade him to stay.}

4.) 27 Jan 2019 00:15:06
Ed033 mentioned that by the end of the window we'd be happy. That still the case Ed?

{Ed033's Note - Don't you mean Ed0333?

5.) 27 Jan 2019 07:17:30

6.) 27 Jan 2019 07:33:29
Lol how many are there of you? Ed0333!

{Ed001's Note - 948. Though 900 of those are Ed0333's other personalities as he is the basis of the film Split.}

7.) 27 Jan 2019 13:46:59
Haha that’s a mental film.

8.) 27 Jan 2019 01:23:35
19 Jan 2019 19:39:57
Let's hope so Ed.

{Ed0333's Note - you will mate. You’ll be happy come January 31st.

amything you can share ed0333?

mich appreciated.

{Ed0333's Note - it’s only 27th Jan mate

9.) 27 Jan 2019 23:12:47
intriguing, so more coming in then?

10 Jul 2020 22:20:20
Ed002, what’s the plan for CHO. Would there be any chance he goes out on loan next season? Say if Willian decides to sign a new contract. Thanks.


{Ed002's Note - In all honesty nobody is sure. The club need players who have the right attitude, who don’t have any issues and right now Hudson-Odoi needs to apply himself if he expects any sort of future at the club.}

1.) 10 Jul 2020 23:31:45
in a footballing sense i do feel sorry for CHO, feel like fans forget he is still very young and is coming back from a very serious injury- i always think of john barnes when it comes to achilles injuries.

the expectations were very high when he first made it to the first team squad and he seems to have been caught up in his own hype maybe? there's no doubting that he's very talented and we can only hope that he manages to work hard and translate that talent across into performances before its too late!

2.) 10 Jul 2020 23:14:10
Exactly what I thought. Thanks very much for the quick response. Maybe a loan would be good for the boy. Get his head down and get some game time under his belt. Cheers Ed002.

3.) 10 Jul 2020 23:31:41
Interesting that you say that Ed2. As a fan you could see his attitude becoming a slight problem. Let's hope he applies himself sooner rather than later.

{Ed002's Note - It is already an issue.}

4.) 11 Jul 2020 00:01:02
Did big contract distract him ed
Would Chelsea been better to sell him on current form.

{Ed002's Note - Not even close to being a sentence.}

5.) 11 Jul 2020 03:17:12
Ed002 can you say what these issues are? Training? Off the pitch stuff? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - It is not somewhere we want to go.}

6.) 11 Jul 2020 08:27:37
ed0002 - lol.

7.) 11 Jul 2020 08:55:31
Sorry for grammar Ed didn't realise we were being tested on that now as well.
Did the contract cho received from Chelsea distract him in terms of attitude and application
And would Chelsea been wiser to sell him to bayern munich
Hope this is OK for you sir.

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea.}

8.) 11 Jul 2020 09:05:17
Thanks Ed. Its a shame that its got to this stage.

Being a young player playing for Chelsea should give you the motivation and drive to become one of the best especially if you have the talent like CHO.

Let's hope he can apply himself.

9.) 11 Jul 2020 09:12:32
Keep him (Hudson-Odoi) on the bench and strap him tightly to that bench with a seat-belt, I am sure that will make him repent; and if he doesn’t repent, sell him. In fact, offer him to Borussia Dortmund in a swap deal for Sancho.

10.) 11 Jul 2020 12:33:21
That is extremely disappointing then, Ed. Kid had the world at his feet if he could simply apply himself and try to be the best he can be. He has the talent to be one of the top wingers in the world. If he's not showing a good attitude then he's throwing all that away and is destined for a subpar career, disappointing himself and his fans in the process.

Can I ask, Ed, have the attitude issues been going on for a longer time, or is it a recent phenomenon? I hope someone can get in his ear, shake him up and make him see sense in any case. Still only 19, so definitely not too late. But he needs to get it right asap, or soon it could be too late.

This is one of the most disappointing pieces of news I've read in a while. Utter shame. Seems like there's some sort of curse on our best talents. Callum a devastating injury and then attitude issues, Ruben a horrible injury just when he was playing like a top class mid, Gilmour now injured for 3-4 months just as he's been getting more and more minutes. I'm sad now.

{Ed002's Note - It is the character Jackson.}

11.) 11 Jul 2020 13:57:25
Sounds like somewhat of a lost cause then. Looks the most talented kid that's come out of the academy (that I've seen) . Shame he doesn't have the character and discipline then to make all Chelsea fans proud.
Pff this is bothering me more than it should, but yet I can't help it :- ( Thought we finally would've produced a world class attacker of our own. Wasn't meant to be I suppose.

{Ed002's Note - He is young and needs to work hard in training otherwise he will need to look elsewhere.}

12.) 11 Jul 2020 15:56:15
Fully agreed. If you don't work, you shouldn't play. Can only hope the added competition of guys like Ziyech, Werner and maybe Havertz will get him in line.



21 May 2019 14:15:37
Ed002 what’s your view on the europa league final taking place in baku? Surely this is one of the biggest cock up UEFA have done to date. And to top it all off, Henrik won’t be travelling with Arsenal due to his safety. Its just incredible.

Will you be attending at either final?


{Ed002's Note - Personally I don't have any major concern with the game being held in Baku, and if HM decides not to go that is fine. Both Arsenal and Chelsea have played at the stadium in Baku in recent years and tickets for the game are freely available. There are plenty of flights from Paris and other major European cities so travel may not be as easy as folks like, but it is hardly a show stopper. I am thinking about going to Madrid if commitments allow but have not yet made my mind up.}

1.) 21 May 2019 17:04:22
Go to Savile and travel back up to Madrid by train.

Cheaper flights, wonderful city and a very good train journey!



13 May 2019 11:06:07
Morning ed002, with the league matches now completed. Please can we have a write up of what may happen this summer. Even if it’s just little snippets. It really would be very much appreciated by all who read this site.

Cheers and have a good week my man.



{Ed002's Note - It is not worth the grief I am afraid Adam.}

1.) 13 May 2019 11:17:18
Ok mate, I tried. But understand. Thanks anyway.



21 Mar 2019 14:58:02
Ed002, I know I may be pushing it a little, but any chance of a write up like we used to get before please? Ins/ outs. Etc.

Thanks in advance.


{Ed002's Note - In a month or so.}

1.) 21 Mar 2019 19:18:58
Probably the best thing I have heard all day.

2.) 21 Mar 2019 21:08:53
Why would anyone write up for you Adam you’ve always been the one arguing on here giving it the big one. You been hiding for a while or on a bab?

3.) 21 Mar 2019 21:22:14
Would take me back to the old days haha :)

4.) 21 Mar 2019 22:29:05
Aaah thanks a lot ed appreciate all the info and you coming back, missed this.

5.) 21 Mar 2019 22:40:06
Think you have the wrong person mate 🤨.

6.) 21 Mar 2019 22:45:42
Blue dragon, seems you’re quite new around here. So no idea where you’ve got that conclusion from and answer your question, not banned or hiding. Just don’t feel the need to vent my frustrations on here as it doesn’t get you anywhere. Anyway, Ed002, appreciate that as always 👍🏼.

7.) 21 Mar 2019 23:37:56
Adam is a good guy. We’re all here because we support Chelsea so let’s get along! Nice one Ed brilliant having you back.



13 Feb 2019 07:27:45
Ed002, if I may, is Roman looking or thinking to sell the club? I know he has issues with visas etc with the UK Government and he’s not seen at games anymore, but just wondering if this could push him into selling his asset?



{Ed002's Note - He attends games when he is available. I don't know what he is thinking but he has turned down a very good offer for the club.}

1.) 13 Feb 2019 11:24:30
That’s fantastic to know Ed002. Thanks a lot.

2.) 13 Feb 2019 13:38:07
Thanks for the reply Ed002.

Just because someone signed a contract, doesn’t mean they will stay. Didn’t we give Eduardo another years contract and then let him out on loan, with the clause of calling him back if he was needed?

HAHAHAHA Some of you lot on here are hilarious, majority of people on here wanted Sarri out at one point or another during the season. And because its now happening on his own accord, you all start blaming the match going fans. Behave.

Man was out of his depth, had one player to rely on in Hazard and now he's going and knowing we have a transfer ban coming up, he jumped ship. He already said he can't train these players to play his way, also said he couldn't motivate them, yet that's his job, but you all feel sorry for him? If Spurs, United and Arsenal didn't drop points at silly times, we wouldn't be 3rd or even top 4. Get a grip some of you.

agree Nibby. he's carried us all this season. If it wasn't for spurs, united arsenal dropping points as silly stages we wouldn't be 3rd. No manager should stay after a 4-0 drubbing to Bournemouth, especially a top 4 club. It didn't work, he moves on, we move on and go again. Wasn't the right fit for us. Ed002, you're certainly vocal on this issue, but isn't football all about opinions? We started off well and then regressed. The EL painted over a very lacklustre season. His stubborness in not changing formations, subs, starting 11 etc drew criticism from fans that pay a lot of money, take time off work, miss various things in their lives, so are they not entitled to have an opinion at a match? Sarriball as his cult seem to preach didn't work when the opposition found out, yet didn't have a plan B. All these things grow over time. Im glad he's going, it wasn't going to work for us.

a massive waiting list? Hmm, think you've been reading too many inaccurate newspapers mate. We didn't sell out a lot of our games last season, there hasn't been the rush to get them renewed either. The list isn't massive and the demand isn't fever pitch.

If Lampard was installed he'd be given a lot more breathing space then any other manager I can absolutely guarantee that. If this ban isn't lifted, then I am all for Sarri leaving and Frank coming in. Him and Jody know the club inside out and know all about the youths. I think we'd be fine.
