Olive has been on the blower Tonight, her Day off. Some interesting updates. The Isco rumours are not true, Madrid would love to sell him but Maria said fook you. Sancho and Werner are of interest but not in this window. Expect a bid for Benny C but club don't expect it to happen. Frank wants competition for Kepa but nothing agreed, Roman said he spent a lot on a keeper and will give him time. Zaha will sign in January as will Ake. A Chelsea player might join Palace in exchange for Zaha. No other transfers being considered as of Today. Roman and Maria and Brucie Buck having caviar on the boat as I speak. Just saying.


1.) 20 Dec 2019 23:14:12
Thanks for the update G8. Yeh I fully expect Zaha to sign for Cheldea. I can't see any of the high profile names. Do you reckon Ake will sign despite his injury?

2.) 20 Dec 2019 23:46:06
Benny C?

3.) 21 Dec 2019 01:04:56
If we spend £120 million on Zaha and Ake when we can pay that for Sancho then the board and especially Marina have learnt nothing.

4.) 21 Dec 2019 03:49:50
I might be wrong, but I think he means Ben Chrisene.

5.) 21 Dec 2019 11:04:14
Personally, I've never understood caviar - it's like putting a lump of salt in your mouth. Rich people: weird.

6.) 21 Dec 2019 11:14:56
Oh yeh Ben Chilwell. Thanks mate.

Frank's it's more so what we need in January. Sancho will be a summer target.



04 Dec 2019 08:38:55
Any chance of an update on any players Chelsea are actually considering for the Summer ED02? Or even this coming window if the ban is lifted? Would be much appreciated.

The new Chelsea management team will be announced this week. Pete Cech, Frank Lampard and Jody Morris. Welcome home.


1.) 17 Jun 2019 12:46:40
Steve Holland needed, hopefully frank has the sense to invite on board,

2.) 17 Jun 2019 14:32:12
Getting Steve Holland back would be wonderful, but seems highly unlikely that he would agree to come back as a number 2 to Frank. Yet we could certainly do with some personnel with more managerial experience in the dug out I'd think.

Along with all others, massively hope that if Frank is our new manager he can find - and be given the time to find - success in this. We all know how bright he is, and how committed to CFC, and I still have a couple of his number 8 shirts! But he would be taking over at an immensely challenging time and with so little experience that it is hard not to be a tad worried for the immediate future. Leave aside feeling pretty exhausted by seemingly never ending managerial musical chairs (had wanted both Conte and Sarri to stay longer) .

Had hoped Lamps would be our manager in about five years time ie after he'd really learnt more of the trade, built up his own confidence/ cv OR if manager now, at least have a more grizzled old managerial pro alongside to help. Anyway, let's hope for the best!

3.) 17 Jun 2019 17:27:45
While I can understand the worries from some of our supporters, I’m really excited about Super Frank ruling the roost. I’ve always thought he was tailored made for the job and I’m not too worried (but I will eat my hat if I’m wrong) because:

A) Now is Frank’s time to get the job.
Something that hasn’t really been considered in the ‘time’ equation is the level that Frank is cutting his teeth at. While I agree it’d be great if he was 3/ 4 years in theoretically, I don’t think after 3 or 4 years he’d even be considered. We’ve struck gold in the fact he is now! As much as it could go poorly, it could go well! We may have our Ferguson. Football is so reliant on players and even without the loan players they had last season Derby would really struggle. They’ve let a whole host of players go this summer and the next years hypothetically could potentially harm Franks credentials rather than aid them. I can understand why our fans are worried for the same reason but as any follower of our youth team will tell you - you shouldn’t be. Transfer ban or no transfer ban the club has been dialling back big transfer expenditure for a while now, I’d argue the last few big signings have been so big because of the proportionate inflation in the market and not because of the clubs dependence on the player I. e Kepa, Morata, Pulisic.

B) It’s been said time and time again but Jody Morris is so key. His relationship with the players in the academy is invaluable and while “knowing the club” isn’t perhaps the best meritocracy for choosing a management team; the fact of the matter is he knows it just about as well as you can.

4.) 19 Jun 2019 11:31:31
People didn’t want Sarri as he hadn’t won anything and hadn’t been managing st the very top for very long and were worried about his experience. if his name wasn’t frank lampard and was any other manager with a years managing and not winning anything they’d be uproar .



27 May 2019 09:09:12
ED01 do you know if Ampadu is fit? I know he has been injured but wondered about his availability for the final particuarly if Kante is ruled out. Thanks in advance.


{Ed001's Note - last I heard was he is out for the season.}

1.) 27 May 2019 10:49:23
He has returned to full team training, Ed 3-4 days back. Judging by pictures.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I don't have time to look at the pictures, just going by what the club said. They did not expect him to play again this season. Mind that was before you qualified for the final so that might have a bearing on matters.}

2.) 27 May 2019 10:05:51
I thought he was out, but he did train this week.



16 Jul 2018 15:19:55
A question for ED01 please if I may. I see Chelsea are now favourites to sign Leon Bailey, do you know if we are strongly interested or is it just a case of bookies trying to generate bets?
Thanks in advance.


{Ed001's Note - it is a case of him being a Chelsea fan and there being interest from Chelsea.}

1.) 16 Jul 2018 21:25:23
I read Leverkusen are going for Ocampus of Marseille, I wonder if it's because they are looking for a replacement for him?

2.) 16 Jul 2018 21:32:32
Hey Ed001, I've heard so much about Bailey, but I haven't really seen him play yet. What are your thoughts of him? Do you think he's ready for a club like Chelsea, or would he need another season or two?

{Ed001's Note - it depends on how he is used, but yes, I think he looks ready. The pace he has is always useful.}

3.) 16 Jul 2018 22:14:19
he would be my first choice to replace Willian if he goes not sure about hazard though he would be very difficult to replace.

4.) 16 Jul 2018 22:21:09
Interesting, thanks for the swift reply.

{Ed001's Note - welcome.}

5.) 17 Jul 2018 08:06:54
Do you know if a move for Bailey is dependent on Hazard leaving or is he more of a Willian replacement? Or neither?!

{Ed001's Note - I believe he is replacing Willian, though not sure if that is dependant on Willian going or not, or just upgrading the team anyway.}

6.) 17 Jul 2018 08:29:41
Great that’s what I wanted to hear ed! Fastest reply ever too, thanks.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

Just had Olive on the dog and bone, I called her earlier and told her I was getting pelters from King Frank and his various aliases about not signing anyone. She was adament Roman and the board wanted to bring in 2 players, She heard Ake and Zaha early doors but Chilwell, Dembele and Sancho were also targets, although more for the Summer.

A lot of chat about others and lots of super agents on board. She was getting fed up with having to host them all. The bottom line appears to have been money, she heard Roman saying he has "been taken to the cleaners" (his slang english is so good now 😁) so many times in the past and regrets a couple of recent "panic buys" in January.

Word has it that Lamps is not happy and was making a point to Roman Today by dropping Kepa, ignoring Batsy off the bench and playing Pedro but Roman is thick skinned and will accept that. Poor Olive has worked so hard recently and only had 4 hours sleep last night between serving Caviar to Roman, Bruce, Pini and Marina plus all their entourage to getting up this morning and being draped overboard to ensure the bow line was polished correctly. 😊She will be back in the Summer and as my good friend from School I salute her. Thanks Olive😏😏.


1.) 01 Feb 2020 23:30:10
I wouldn’t listen to Olive like nobody listens to you now. ☺️ Ruined you’re Chelsea rumours rep making up stories 😂 just listen to the Eds next time mate 👌🏻.

2.) 02 Feb 2020 08:33:31
true or not true it's a good read and highly entertaining. keep it up G8.

3.) 02 Feb 2020 08:43:39
It's very difficult to complete deals, however credit to G8 for being able to confirm where the interest was via Olive. Just because the club has strong interest it doesn't mean that the transfer will happen.

Credit to G8 for the insight and for making the posts very readable. Thanks mate.

4.) 02 Feb 2020 09:35:03
G8, you and Olive have made a lot very well laugh!
Thanks to both of you!

I’ve been viewing the site on a regular basis over the last week and I would like to add my thanks to the many posters who have praised the work of all the Eds.

I would also like to thank all the posters who have, as usual, expressed there opinions with passion.

One particular post, I think it was from “J”, Was in my view brilliant in the way supporters/ posters view our mainly young team through the twists and turns of a season.

While it’s obvious we have some posters with split personalities, it doesn’t mater because it is so obvious and anyway, all there views are just as valid.


5.) 02 Feb 2020 10:17:58
Thanks for your support guys, I shall let Olive know.

6.) 02 Feb 2020 11:59:00
Yes thanks for fun posts G8 and great to sere you back posting again TomB, hope that means you are on the mend?

7.) 02 Feb 2020 08:42:52
I shall try JBS and thanks for your concern. I will have good days and bad days but I will be looking at the site frequently as in my view it’s a top venue for fans. Plus, we get the Eds valuable input.



16 Jan 2020 16:57:24
Just heard back from Olive following a request from CFCShak for an update. Olive was caught out last week listening by the door to the conference room on board where Roman was entertaining a well known superagent and was asked what she was doing? luckily for her Eugenes phone rang and She legged it back to the lower deck where she was supposed to be polishing. 😁. anyway, the talk has mainly been about what players may be leaving this window and also 'the bigger picture' of building a squad over 2 windows so one or two potential signings may happen in the summer and not in this window. What is clear though is that Zaha and Ake's names are still very much in the picture but alternatives are being considered. Sancho is the dream signing and would be a statement of intent but she can't elaborate anymore other than to say she expects 2 signings this window, a forward and a defender. The latest name to be cropping up again is Ben Chilwell, this might not happen until the summer but it might also happen this window if Leicester can bring in a replacement. Alonso's name keeps popping up as well so . Roman is very active this window and is talking to Marina upto 4 times a day. Hope this helps Shak! 😏😏.


1.) 16 Jan 2020 17:17:10
God bless Olive and all that sail with her!

2.) 16 Jan 2020 20:22:19
Bless you G8, I really appreciate the update. Always look forward to the info and the humour you add to the text which is brilliant. Thanks.



14 Jan 2020 11:13:49
Just re-read ED02's transfer update he gave us a few weeks back. He mentioned Bryan Fiabema who I had never heard of. Youngster. We have now signed him. The insight from ED02 is fantastic and I would urge all posters to re-read as it has been stated "nothing has changed" before asking questions.


1.) 14 Jan 2020 12:34:50
I agree 100% G8. It would be great to have those summaries pinned to the top of the page.

2.) 15 Jan 2020 07:50:54
G8 what is your mate Olive upto these days?

3.) 15 Jan 2020 12:38:55
CFCShak I shall text her this afternoon and see if I can get an update for you. 😁.

4.) 15 Jan 2020 21:56:18
Nice one G8. Appreciate it.



05 Jan 2020 20:59:14
Was at the game Today with my Wife and Son and had great seats in the West upper. Got to say Tomori is a rolls royce of a footballer, so calm and elegant, Reece James was putting in cross after cross, great strength and accuracy, CHO was a constant threat and the goal seemed to give him confidence.

In fairness Pedro was lively as well. They were the stand out players. Ross gave the ball away time after time and looked rusty but he does have something about him and can score goals. Jury is out on him.

Willy, Emerson, Kovacic, Jorginho, Christensen all did what I would expect of them. Batsy? Sorry for being down on the guy, which is unlike me, but he was terrible. Reece put several balls in for him and he could of had a hatrick.

We are well covered all over the pitch bar CF/ S. We need to cover Tammy this window and anyone else will be a bonus. P. S Olive has been on shore leave for a few days (Roman is moored up in sun) but will speak to her in the next few days for an update.


1.) 05 Jan 2020 21:16:00
Tomori was lucky though to not give a penalty away, offside saved his a$$.

2.) 05 Jan 2020 21:17:39
Thanks for an accurate summary G8.

Hope you and your family enjoyed the experience. Sadly I didn’t go and I can’t make the next couple of games.

I thought RB improved as the game went on but its hard to be to definitive watching on a screen.

I suppose with his lack of mins that Warsaw to be expected.



27 Dec 2019 15:58:53
Just been chatting with Olive, she was polishing the quarter decks earlier and her knees are sore. She said Roman and his family and friends watched the game yesterday and were very frustrated just like all Chelsea fans but equally he was dancing on the table when we beat Spurs and shouting "fook you Jose". 😁 Olive wasn't happy with that as it meant more cleaning as he had his deck shoes on! Anyway she says he is fully behind Lamps and wants to see how the 2 new signings fit in this coming January. Marina and Bruce are locked in conversation on the upper deck with a super agent as I write this apparently but she has to go back on her knees cleaning. let's hope we beat Arsenal.


{Ed047's Note - let’s hope you don’t! 😉

1.) 27 Dec 2019 18:59:49
Interesting post G8 referring to the two signings as past tense.

You could turn out to be the latest transfer Guru should Olive get things right.

2.) 27 Dec 2019 21:35:58
you related to the Raver G8.

3.) 28 Dec 2019 08:46:34
While I'm not necessarily a fan of the transfers you've alluded to (Zaha and Ake if I'm not mistaken), it would be quite cool if your Olive turned out to be correct/ real :-P

Some good old fashioned rumor posting haha.

My team as well Shak but I have a feeling he will somehow squeeze Mount in as well, possibly for Pulisic. Not my choice but I think Lamps will play him for his pressing and energy.

I agree Tom and I don't want us to sign any new players at this point. We need to see these fantastic young talents develop this Season and then review in the summer when the Season finishes. The transfer ban is the best thing to happen to us.

Totally agree TomB, AC is a very good player, underated as well (apart from Pat Nevin, who adores him) . Question for you King Frank, why do you want to change players natural positions? You were suggesting Reece James as a holding midfielder last week and now AC? James is a brilliant right back as is AC at CB. May I suggest you look at Billy G as a possible DM or even EA. Or just go with Kante and Kovacic? Why complicate things?

Olive called me earlier, she was hyper ventilating, poor thing, as she had run up the stairs from the lower decks to her cabin in mid-ships where she can pick up a bit of mobile reception. She told me Roman has given the go ahead to back Frank this window and spend what it takes to get a new striker in. Frank wants a striker to compete with Tammy over any other position in the squad. This is the priority. Roman has been heard on the dog and bone talking to Jean-michel Aulas and there is a hope something can be done. Frank has told Marina and big Pete that he is happy to foresake his other targets, Winger (Zaha) and defender (Ake) if he can have a striker. Roman, although frustrated with some of the recent results, is very happy with the progress being made and is keen to support Frank. This one might go all the way to the wire. Poor Olive is on mopping duties lower decks Today but is serving Romans guests Tonight as they tuck into caviar and smoked salmon washed down with dom peri. mmmm, Roman is on his usual pineapple juice being tee total. 😏😏.

Hard as it is though, we are streets ahead of Arsenal. They really are in a mess. No chance of getting top 4. We have a chance. They are terrible. The capital is still blue, only one london winner of the champions league so less of the trolling.
