Hello ED02 A few posts on here about Wijnaldum? Is it just random play station stuff or do Chelsea actually have an interest? Thankyou.


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

1.) 07 Jan 2021 06:34:21
He hasn't renewed his contract so that's why they are talking about him.

{Ed002's Note - There are numerous players who have yet to renew their contracts.}

2.) 07 Jan 2021 12:35:34
Chelsea doesn’t want him. Suddenly they are linked to Chelsea whenever they are in need of a mouth watering contract.

3.) 07 Jan 2021 13:46:43
I know ed002 that he hasn't been linked to us. I just provided an explanation about why people are talking about him coming to Chelsea.



28 Dec 2020 08:42:46
A question for ED02 if I may.
Do Chelsea have any interest in signing Pedro Neto or is it just a random name I keep seeing on this page? Many thanks for your time.


{Ed002's Note - No, there is not any interest from Chelsea.}

1.) 28 Dec 2020 08:54:41
Would this be the proper time to ask you if you would do an update on Chelsea's targets? :)

{Ed002's Note - I plan on trying before New Year if possible.}

2.) 28 Dec 2020 09:08:35
Thankyou ED02 for clearing that up, much appreciated.

3.) 28 Dec 2020 09:38:00
Okay - no pressure :) Much appreciated!

Just been on the blower to Olive, she is working so hard at the moment, bless her. Social distancing means fewer agents on board but more work. Anyways, bit of an update, she said the 4 new players maybe now 5? Kai, Benny C, Thiago are all done deals as is the Barcelona kiddie. It appears only a keeper and maybe, just maybe another centre back are coming in.
Werner, Ziech, Havertz, Chilwell, Silva, Barcelona kiddie. lots of talk of a loan for Keppa but not much interest. The talk is all about Oblak, yes Oblak. Olive is trying so hard to listen at Romans top deck suite but keeps getting caught. but the big Olive rumour is Chelsea want Oblak. My old school mate does me proud, I thought I would share with you. chow.


1.) 24 Aug 2020 23:07:57
Let's hope this dream continues G8. Oblak would be the icing on the cake.



21 Jul 2020 22:39:54
Wow, the negativity on here started by a few regular, good posters. blown me away. Calm down boys. Tomorrow will be difficult but who knows? Beat Wolves all sorted. Now Rewind. Utd are nothing special and Moyes will be after a result. And Leicester are without 2 or 3 very good players so even if we lost (which we won't) our last 2 games we will still qualify for top 4. Anyways, bit of news, My mate Olive rang me earlier. Roman, Bruce, Eugine and Marina have all been over and the talk is all about Declan Rice. It appears that Kai Havertz is a done deal. CHO keeps popping up as she told me 2 weeks ago. Ben Chilwell will not happen.100%. She has heard Kepa's name a lot and also "the need for another striker/ forward". But, the main name is currently Rice. just sharing. P. S. Poor Olive lost her glasses in a force 8 gale yesterday, she was outside when the wind struck and her thick rimmed black glasses went overboard and were last seen heading towards the Cayman islands. Poor old Doris (Olive), Bruce Buck has offered her his second pair but she is now getting double vision. 😏😏.


1.) 21 Jul 2020 22:48:58
Sorry for my unusual negativity G8 but I’m in a right old two and eight.

I hope Olive finds a spare pair soon!

2.) 21 Jul 2020 22:53:36
Lovely stuff, thanks G8 and Olive 😁.

3.) 21 Jul 2020 22:56:04
TomB, chill out bro and just bank on Frank 😁.

4.) 21 Jul 2020 23:25:14
Blue Tan, I’ve only got a few things that now work normally and one of them is my very old ticker. My unusual negativity isn’t helping it much.


5.) 22 Jul 2020 10:08:41
I agree, I think a few are a little nervous and anxious. It happens when things are so close. One thing for certain, both Man Utd and Leicester would love to be in our boat right now. Whatever the outcome today, I'd rather play Wolves in our last game than what the other two are faces with.

I'm feeling confident today. Hopefully the nervous feelings will be over tonight lads. Lampard will steer the ship safely to shore.

By the way as always, great post G8. Appreciate the news and the humour combined to make it enjoyable.

6.) 22 Jul 2020 13:10:37
Just preparing for worst then I won't be as disappointed but if we do win il be even more delighted
So it's positive really g8 haha.

7.) 22 Jul 2020 16:58:41
I really do wonder about all our funds. Ed002, is there any good links to read all about how it works and in depth football articles? Ed001 even, if you guys know of any. Very interested in financials in football and could be a possible career for me so thanks for any help.

Hope all the editors and posters are well.

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

8.) 22 Jul 2020 17:47:20
SwissRamble on twitter is a good follow for those interested in club finances and FFP, he's not an "itk" he's just an accountant who analyses the club annual statements.

{Ed001's Note - he is very good.}

9.) 22 Jul 2020 22:15:48
Can’t wait to see the back of Willian and Alonso though boys.



30 Jun 2020 19:05:06
Just come off the phone to my old schoolmate Olive, her real name is Doris but we all called her Olive due to her uncannot resemblance to an actress who played in "on the buses" many moons ago. but that's another story. anyway bit of gossip, Roman has been talking for much of the day to various people and the same name kept coming up, Kai Havertz, maybe coincidental but I thought I would share with everyone😏😏.


1.) 30 Jun 2020 20:02:10
Thanks for the info G8, fingers crossed.

2.) 30 Jun 2020 20:35:48
Hope we can get the Havertz deal done. Next season is going to be immense.

3.) 30 Jun 2020 21:08:19
Thanks Olive and G8 (;

4.) 30 Jun 2020 21:09:26
You related to Raver on the spuds page G8.

5.) 30 Jun 2020 22:03:28
Is Olive Martied?

6.) 30 Jun 2020 22:10:16
Good humour in your post G8. Always very enjoyable.

Its been well reported by media outlets that Chelsea are considering making a bid. Hopefully these talks with RA pushes one forward.

Just waiting for the that reads "Chelsea agree a deal for Kai Havertz".

7.) 30 Jun 2020 23:55:48
Il get you butler.

Been reading all the posts over the last few days and the debate on Lampard. "Should he stay or should he go now". The Clash. what a band they were.
Anyways, He is not going anywhere just yet, the board want to back him but doubts exist as to whether he is the right man to take the club forward. The plan is still to review the situation at the end of the season but that will change if results don't pick up and quickly.
Top 4 is the bottom line, miss that and he is gone 100%.
The next 4 games are very important, win them all and he likely stays, lose the majority of them and he is gone.
Roman and the board will be working on several scenarios and discussing potential replacements. The squad is good enough without doubt to finish top 4 and therefore it really is down to Lampard as to what potential outcome is achieved.
For me I'm hoping we win all 4 games and get back on track, confidence returns, we get past Athletico Madrid and push up the table. After all, the great Sir Alex was one game away from the sack all those years ago as a young manager and look how that story turned out. Over to you Lamps and good luck.


1.) 21 Jan 2021 19:18:31
Brilliant post G8.
I think we can get 13 points from our next 5 league games and that would be a great confidence booster.

The bit about Sir Alex, that's exactly what I thought about the whole situation that Lamps is in. Hopefully he can turn it around like him.

I think both Lampard and our players have to look at themselves and just do better and put a lot more effort and energy into whatever they do. And surely a different approach is badly needed.

2.) 21 Jan 2021 19:21:13
I’m with you G8.

3.) 21 Jan 2021 20:10:24
Yes but Ferguson had a track record he won the Scottish League with Aberdeen, the European Cup Winners Cup and the European Super Cup before he joined United.

4.) 21 Jan 2021 20:25:31
But he was still Scottish. Only joking!

5.) 21 Jan 2021 21:03:47
Haha, Ferguson and Wenger are the last of the long- term managers. Whatever people think about Frank, 3 years is about the norm for managers at top club nowadays either because of lack of success or because of the style of football.

6.) 21 Jan 2021 21:22:47
What has olive heard G8 I'm sure Mr abramovich was lying in a pool of his own sick after spending 200 million and drowning his sorrows after the Leicester game

7.) 21 Jan 2021 21:55:50
Not a pleasant picture!



14 Jan 2021 15:23:19
I would like to see some continuity in team selection over the next few games with just one or two changes. With Kante out I think young Billy deserves a start ahead of Jorginho and I also think CHO deserves to keep his place. Werner up top ahead of Tammy and Giroud as well.






1.) 14 Jan 2021 17:08:48
Will be a tough fight. They will be up for it,



04 Jan 2021 09:21:58
Happy New Year fellow posters, EDs and lurkers.
I'm not going to get involved in the Lampard in or Lampard out debate as that is something only Roman and the board will decide, equally any debate on a replacement for the same reason.
What I shall say though is I think we really do need to look at each player and decide on a system to suit the squad we have starting with the best players available to us.
Firstly Kante, world class on his day when played in his right position which is part of a midfield 2 where one sits deep and allows him to attack the ball while still given protection. We won the league under Conte with him and Matic and so did Leicester with him and Drinkwater.
So a 2 it is.
Havertz, bought for a huge fee as one of the worlds brightest young talents, someone who can create and get beyond the striker. a number 10.
So play him in front of the 2.
Ziech loves to come off the right and use that left foot wand of his, a shoe in when fit.
Pulisic and CHO both prefer playing on the left so go with the one in form and rotate during the match, season.
So we now have a 3 in front of the 2.
The full backs when fit are good enough to serve the club for years to come, provide width, crosses and energy so James and Chillwell are in.
Zouma and Silva or Rudiger are what we have and are all competent enough at CB.
That leaves 3 strikers in Giroud, Tammy and Werner who can be rotated depending on the opposition but I do think Pulisic in particular would prefer to play off Giroud just as Hazard did.
So for me
Don't try to fit all the so called best/ expensive/ recent/ big name etc players in but play to strenghts.
We have the players to turn this around and get back to winning ways bar maybe 1.
That being the player to play alongside Kante.






Heres to winning our remaining games in January and beyond. cheers.


1.) 04 Jan 2021 09:30:53
Like the sentiment of your post G8.

2.) 04 Jan 2021 09:50:36
Excellent post G8. I agree with everything you said.

I think Lamps wants to play 4231, but we don't have that one DM to play alongside Kante. I think we need to add that player in January, ideally it would be Rice, but if we can't get him, then we must bring in someone similar.

3.) 04 Jan 2021 10:48:24
Ashk121, I think we do have a midfield 2 - Kante and Gilmour. If he's good enough, he's old enough and the way that Gilmour has played as a sub demands that he starts.

4.) 04 Jan 2021 11:23:44
My problem with Billy is that he is not physical enough (both his height and his build) and that he is a bit slow. But I agree that the lad needs to start, surely over Kova for me.
I haven't seen him next to Kanté, but it wouldn't be a bad experiment in an easier game like Fulham.



27 Dec 2020 09:30:35
I try not to react on the day of a defeat, particuarly when accompanied by such a poor performance, so decided to relect this morning.
When I saw the starting lineup I was generally ok, although surprised that Werner was included after his recent poor performances. I thought CHO should of started. Other than that I thought Lamps set the team up ok. First half we were slow to react, devoid of ideas and some of the passing, Kante in particular was poor, he also conceded the free kick for the 2nd goal. At that point I said to my Son I thought CHO needed to replace Werner. 2nd half saw that change which was good. Well done Lamps for spotting the obvious. What did surprise me was seeing Jorginho come on after his recent showing in previous games. 2 nil down and you have to be more positive, anyone remember Conte going to a back 3 against Arsenal when 3 nil down when we won the title? Lamps needed to be bold, a formation change, 2 up top, give Billy a go, any number of positive changes would have been good. Poor by Lamps. He then pushed Kante into the 8 where he offers very little, again poor decision making. At 3 nil down we were getting some joy down the right with CHO and James (who looked leggy) putting in some decent crosses, I'm thinking we need Giroud on the end of them and we might just get back in this game. Lamps brings on an out of form player who is down on confidence in Havertz instead of shaking it up and bringing Giroud on. Poor by Lamps. The players did look out of sorts, tired, lacking spark, just poor all round but to then come out and say what he did after the match was a misjudgement which might of been better kept in the dressing room?
Anyway, a poor poor performance by most, but not all, the players. CHO was very good. And a poor poor performance by the manager.
The time to react is now, get everyone up for a performance against Aston Villa, maybe one or two fresh players, CHO starting, set up correctly and get the 3 points before a big game against Man City. This can be turned around, the squad is good and the potential starting 11 certainly capable of top 4 at least. I'm still backing Lamps as the road to becoming a top manager is not easy and the learning curve is steep but the pressure is on. KTBFFH.


1.) 27 Dec 2020 10:15:14
Fine post G8.
Agree with most. I do think Werner starting was a decent choice - the problem was that he was on the wing again. Everyone and their grandmother knew that Arsenal would have a high defensive line. Why not use Werner centrally and try to exploit that? CHO on the right, Pulisic on the left would be my choice.
Concerning how many games we draw or lose to the better teams of the league. We were dominated from minute 1 vs an Arsenal team in awful shape. Seemed somewhat like a motivational issue yesterday? Otherwise I can't explain how bad we were.
Choices have to be made. Either play Werner centrally the next few games or don't play him at all!

2.) 27 Dec 2020 10:33:23
Spot on G8, very good post.

This one is surely on Frank.
Kante has been poor for quite some time in my opinion, but his defensive stats are good but that's just it. He can't turn defence into offence and he's not a playmaker.

In my opinion the most important reaction against Villa should come from FL. I'm very curious to see what team he chooses.

3.) 27 Dec 2020 11:04:08
Great Post G8.

Emil I hear you about Werner. let's hope lampard does before its too late. He will regret his decisions badly in hindsight. Not everyone is lucky enough to manage Chelsea and if this project ends then that will spend the end for any future apprentice managerial appointments.

4.) 27 Dec 2020 11:24:37
I agree with the sentiment of the above posts.

Lamps like all managers should but very rarely do, take full responsibility for that performance.

CHO starts against Villa and that will be interesting and i assume Silva will be rested. James will also be given some time off to get help with his knee issue.

I thought Tammy took his goal well but I can see the reasoning behind a Giroud start.

Anyway, as G8 said in his post, a good couple of wins and then we will be back on track.




22 Dec 2020 21:32:21
Got to say this page is starting to become toxic again, a lot of negativity from posters, or I suspect poster, King Frank is all over this page as Graham and others talking to himself. Where are all the original posters like ELI, Jackson, Kiwi Pete etal? let's get the page back to what is was and have a bit of "glass half full". Anyway, rant over and best wishes to all the eds and genuine posters on here. Cheers.


1.) 22 Dec 2020 22:04:26
Think you’ve got it wrong there pal.

2.) 22 Dec 2020 22:13:16
Nice, as always, to see you posting G8.

Let’s put any negativity down to a crap year for everyone and this being a forum for people to vent their frustrations.

As I always say, I love posts that are critical but constructive.

I hate abuse of anyone and I hate posters who dismiss other posters views.

Posters using multiple names is just strange!

Happy New Year G8. IMO you are one of the top posters.

3.) 22 Dec 2020 22:51:01
Well said Tom. You on social media G8? You should add me on either/ or if you are.

4.) 23 Dec 2020 08:39:10
G8 it's wrong to tag a post negative just because it doesn't agree with your opinion. It's a site where everyone is supposed to share opinions and views and all perspective must not agree at all times. Only thing constant is change and opinions continue to change with events and developments.
One Blues one luv.

5.) 23 Dec 2020 11:15:28
Negativety comes in many forms, it mainly stems from 'a difference in opinion'. We should respect opinions of others whether or not they agree with your own personal view. End of the day there are many points of debate here which include the manager, players, positions etc. If we were all machines then fair enough. Once again ilo has out in a great post. Blue 💙.

Great to hear your view on Kante ED047.I was having this conversation on here with someone recently. Why on earth would you sell your best player. Some posters play too much play station. 😀.


{Ed047's Note - he’s incredible G8 and I’d have him in a heart beat, play the guy in his right position which Sarri and initially, Frank weren’t doing and he is awesome mate.

One of my favourite players and such a great guy too.

I'm still of the opinion that Willian might agree a new contract. I think it would make sense. Nice thread this one, good comments, well balanced and no trolling. long may it continue.


{Ed002's Note - I agree and that might well happen.}

With Werner hopefully joining and Giroud signing a 1 year extension I think we are in great shape up front. I'm also excited with our midfield options now Ruben is fit again (big question mark as to whether he can stay injury free though) and the emergence of young Billy Gilmour, I really think he is going to be a star. Kante, Kovacic, Mount, Ruben, Gilmour, Barklay, Jorginho? plus Conor Gallacher and Ampadu both returning from loans. a lot of talent to pick from although I guess some will move on either sold or loaned. exciting times.

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.
