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. 😏😏.

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.



27 Jun 2020 15:05:11
Just heard from my good friend Doris who is very well and contrary to some rumours😏 is still on cleaning duties aboard Roman's boat. She tells me things have been very quiet with no visitors but lots of activity on the phone. Roman is spending several hours a day talking to Marina, Bruce, Pini and other super agents. She can't tell me any specifics but whenever Kai Havertz gets mentioned so does Callum Hudson-adoi! . Speculate on that? Again, no specifics but Kepa's name keeps coming up as well and so does Willians. Whenever Willian is mentioned she also hears contracts so I imagine he might still stay. She did hear Roman talking to an agent about a leicester player but was drowned out by him laughing and talking to his Son in Russian who also started laughing. Her Russian is improving and she thinks they were saying "Leicester are having a laugh if they think he is worth that much". loosely translated.
Anyway a few snippets in there and I told her I shall phone again next week. 😏😏.


1.) 27 Jun 2020 16:23:17
I don't get the Kai Havertz and CHO link?

2.) 27 Jun 2020 17:34:33
This is nothing more than putting 2+2 and getting 10 but Ed002 has said that Chelsea had an interesting proposal to put to BL. CHO needs game time to push on. a year on loan to BL as part of a deal for Kai Havertz would be interesting.

3.) 27 Jun 2020 17:51:51
If we can find a solution for Willian then CHO could spend two years at BL? He’d be the main man and could really step up to be the player he has teased to be. We’d have plenty of cover with Willian, Havertz, Pulisic, Ziyech, Mount and Timo?

4.) 27 Jun 2020 19:10:33
Agreed Shak I was thinking the same thing both different players, different skill set and different positions (is Ben if Havertz can play wide) . but I know better than to doubt Doris/ Olive.

5.) 27 Jun 2020 19:39:20
Thanks Studley, it makes sense.

6.) 27 Jun 2020 19:54:25
Loaning Callum would be a dumb move in my opinion. He's plenty good enough to play a part for us, and I'd imagine the people at the club feel the same. Hence the big contract as well.

7.) 27 Jun 2020 19:58:47
His definitely good enough to play a part but will his development be hindered if he wasn't to play every weekend.

I reckon we should buy Havertz outright.

8.) 27 Jun 2020 20:18:23
I can see your point Jackson and I’m on the fence. That said he’s struggled with injuries this year and could see himself 4th choice next year. He’s also made some choices off the field that have hit the headlines. Perhaps some time away from Chelsea could be as important to his personal growth as well as his football growth?

9.) 27 Jun 2020 20:52:13
I agree with Studley and I’m a massive fan of CHO. A one year loan to gain some momentum and get proper minutes in a good league isn’t a bad idea. He has struggled with injuries and had some trouble off the field regardless. We would still have Pulisic, Ziyech, Werner, Mount and Havertz who can play wide and for some strange reason I see Willian staying even though I would have preferred Pedro to stay.

10.) 28 Jun 2020 04:44:23
I’m astounded how little slack CHO has gotten this season in light of his TORN ACHILLES. That’s generally a full year out (see RLC) .

I agree in that I would love for him to have a ton of time as he started to come into his own last year once he got consistent time. That said I don’t buy the notion that we’re swimming in depth.

Pulisic has shown he’s not a stranger to injuries, Werner will likely only play on the wing in emergency situations, Ziyech will be new to the league and have AFCON, Willian will be another year older if he stays, and Mount has almost never played wide this year and was absent when he did.

If city can justify keeping Sane, Sterling, Mahrez, and Bernardo on the same team then I think we should be able to make it work also.

11.) 28 Jun 2020 07:39:20
Maybe the interesting proposal was loaning CHO for a year as part of the package for Havertz?

12.) 28 Jun 2020 00:21:25
Ed2 is there a possibility that a player could go on loan to BL as part of any deal for Havertz. Will that be something Chelsea would consider? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to start answering arising from all of this nonsence.}

13.) 28 Jun 2020 10:52:12
Fair enough of Ed2. Tbf to the poster he did say 2+2 = 10. Its caused a bit of a conversation here, but I'm sure deep down everyone knows it's not true. Thanks anyway mate.

14.) 28 Jun 2020 15:18:16
Wait. Everyone knows this guys just writes this stuff up from what he is reading online / in papers right? Hopefully no one is taking this guys posts seriously he is doing it for “fun”, with tongue in cheek.

15.) 28 Jun 2020 20:14:01
I think we have all enjoyed the debate and speculation. It’s exciting to be signing players again!

16.) 29 Jun 2020 14:23:05
Don’t know what you are talking about, CP, Olive or Doris or Barbara or whatever her nom de guerre is clearly a lifelong friend (and maybe former romantic interest? ) of G8, who risks her employment and maybe even life (who knows how Roman deals with spies?! To feed our hunger for rumours.

The very idea that you would say that this brave, selfless woman is mere fiction shakes me to my core and makes me lose faith in humanity. This woman should be applauded, yet you question her existence?

G8, next phone conversation tell our cleaning heroine that most of us remain faithful to her snippets! We do not waiver in our faith!



23 May 2020 15:15:41
With left backs such as Chilwell and Sandro NOT being the clubs preferred choice, I wonder who is the preferred choice?


1.) 23 May 2020 15:23:08
Alex Telles. Dealt with repeatedly.

2.) 23 May 2020 16:33:20
Not once have I read on here that Telles is the number 1 choice. he and the others I mentioned earlier are on the list as possibilities.

3.) 23 May 2020 17:11:04
I’ve been a reader for many months without posting and it has been said REPEATEDLY.

{Ed002's Note - Gosh, has it.}

4.) 23 May 2020 17:15:41
I think our wonderful club is going to give Chilwell a swerve. I do believe, that despite certain news outlets saying Telles is going to PSG he will be joining our MIGHTY BLUES asap.

5.) 23 May 2020 18:59:31
Alaba wouldn't be too bad, either! Not sure if it's even remotely realistic though :)

6.) 23 May 2020 19:06:49
I must admit, I visit this site often and wasn't clear who the apparent first choice was.

7.) 23 May 2020 19:44:27
I think G8 is correct, it’s just my opinion about Telles!

8.) 24 May 2020 09:47:08
Never seen a LB identified.

Ed has mentioned that Sandro is not first choice and I THINK the same with Chilwell but not seen a first choice.

Telles is always linked but who knows? He feels quite mercenary and it may be his agent may hawking him around.

The benfica LB Grimaldi and Atalanta Dutch chap both look decent options that likely won't cost what chilwell would.



20 Dec 2019 22:02:53
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.

Season is finally over. Good, bad, indifferent?
Well, we started behind the 8 ball with the transfer ban and losing Hazard so to finish 4th was quite remarkable really so 100% good. Frank brought through a number of academy players so again all good.
Our football going forward was really eye catching so again, all good. Pundits and even some supporters from other clubs buying into our youth policy so again, nice to see, so all good. The emergence of Pulisic as a potential world class talent, all good again. Agree so far?
Now the indifferent, or not so good, or just bad. Kepa, lost all his confidence and just not good enough (at the moment), Frank and the coaching staff not being able to organise the balance of the team sufficiently to ensure a better defensive record. The high line in the Cup Final with Arsenal banging the ball long to Aubabongbong who has pace was a recipie for disaster.
Agree or disagree?
Overall more plusses than minuses for me plus the 2 new signings and 4 to follow, yes 4 to follow, as confirmed by Olive. So 8/ 10 from me. Well done Frank and Jody.


1.) 09 Aug 2020 12:12:37
Spot on post G8.

I’m very confident we are about to experience some more exciting times at the Bridge.

We have been very spoilt in the Roman era!

2.) 09 Aug 2020 12:18:24
Given the transfer ban and the number of young players brought through, getting top 4 and to an FA cup final is aa fantastic achievement.

I'm sure Frank and Jody are well aware of our deficiences at GK and in defence and will be working to sort them.

But just look at our attack for next season: Werner / Ziyech / Pulisic / CHO / Havertz / RLC / Mount / Tammy / Giroud - Wow, just Wow.

Can't wait.



13 Jul 2020 20:49:18
Just come off the phone to Olive, she has been polishing everything today, she tells me her right bicep looks like popeye😁, anyway, poor Olive is tired and ready for her cabin below decks. She did share this with me though. She has heard Kai Havertz will be announced very shortly, just a few final details need finalising. Interestingly though that might not be the last of attacking players coming in! She heard Roman and a prominent agent talking about the need for a young striker to challenge what we have! Several names were being discussed but she didn't recognise any of them. She loves the football but gets a bit lost if a name comes up that she hasn't heard before. I asked to listen a bit more clearly next time and she told me "don't push it"😁 She also reminded me how I used to pull her bunches at school and how she smacked me in the eye😂 She can be fiesty but we are great friends. Anyway before she got told to be quiet as the prominent agent and Roman were having caviar and a vodka, not Roman, he is tee total and was enjoying a milkshake she did hear hear Willian and contracts and the words "must try to keep him". Anyways. that was our conversation. 😏.


1.) 13 Jul 2020 21:26:50
well done Olive. Is she married I am looking for a rich woman to keep me in a life of luxury.

2.) 13 Jul 2020 21:45:26
Does Olive have any news about defensive reinforcements G8?

3.) 13 Jul 2020 22:08:25
Malamine Efekele I guess?

4.) 13 Jul 2020 22:52:31
Loving Olive. At times I wish I was her Arfur.

5.) 13 Jul 2020 23:39:18
This is the main snippet for me - Kai Havertz will be announced very shortly, just a few final details need finalising.

Let's hope your right Olive.



02 Jul 2020 21:01:27
Just had a text from Olive. " Roman was fuming last night, he and Arkadiy were saying yerunda, yerunda when the 3rd goal went in. They were also rather rude about Kepa, Alonso and Rudiger". Thought I would share you😏.


1.) 02 Jul 2020 21:25:48
G8, Olive is my hero can she play the banjo? Or, left back?

2.) 02 Jul 2020 21:27:54
Even if they announced Havertz right now nothing would change about my mood after yesterday's result.

3.) 02 Jul 2020 21:51:32
We can always rely on Spurs to cheer us up Shak.

4.) 02 Jul 2020 22:02:50
No Tom, that’s for Arsenal fans. I’m with Shak on this one I’m still vexed from yesterday’s result, currently in the south of France with my Girlfriend but still a little peeved off. Just how do you beat Leicester and City in one week then lose to Westham that hadn’t scores a goal in 6 games?!

5.) 02 Jul 2020 22:17:10
It’s to easy and flippant to say work in progress ELI. It was very poor but we move on to the next game with our destiny in our own hands.

6.) 02 Jul 2020 22:58:31
Not only did the result annoy me but the level of stick I've taken from Utd fans has been unprecedented lol.

Tom your right, the Spurs result has cheered me.

We go again, come on mighty blues.

7.) 03 Jul 2020 06:00:37
Seen a good one elsewhere if United fans are being annoying.

You know how they like to see Ole is special and a good coach as Lampard hasn't beaten him yet? Well, now Moyes has done the double over us as well. So by that logic Moyes is excellent too! ;-)

{Ed0666's Note - How Moyes is a premiership manager is beyond me. I’m really not sure what his purpose in life is.

8.) 03 Jul 2020 10:17:17
Nice one Jackson, food for thought. Hopefully Bournemouth can help us tomorrow too.



26 Jun 2020 17:00:03
Exellent performance from Chelsea last night with some outstanding displays from Pulisic and Willian and the whole back 4. Great that Lampard is now playing Kante in the centre where he protects the back 4. He might not ping a pass like Jorginho but he offers so much more. We have strength in depth all over the midfield and forward areas
Just need to add a defender or 2 and competition for Kepa and we can challenge Liverpool and City next season. In Roman we trust, In Marina we trust, in Lampard we trust.


1.) 26 Jun 2020 18:52:30
Fully agree.

2.) 26 Jun 2020 19:19:15
Hey G8,l mate, any news from Olive?! Any snippets on the pending Havertz deal?! Hope she’s doing okay amid these uncertain times.

If you manage to speak to her try and sneak in some questions on Havertz and maybe a left back would you?! Cheers.

3.) 26 Jun 2020 19:55:36
Hi ELI, hope you are well. I shall phone her later and see what I can find out. 👍.

4.) 26 Jun 2020 23:59:23
Apparently olive was sacked for stealing
The boat she worked on was losing stock on a daily basis
It started with black bags and toilet roll
She moved on to bigger things thinking she wasn't being watched
The straw that broke the camels back in Romans eyes and got her the sack was she stole his cash and carry card and got caught on cctv trying to buy bacon fries for John Terry
She denied it at first and said she'd go to the press over the havertz deal and the real reason spurs and Liverpool furloughed everyone. but once they showed her the VAR footage of her sneaking into Romans bedroom to nick his makro card out of his silky underwear draw she owned up and left but she did say
She saw kai havertz and Ben Chilwell playing twister in the office waiting room as she was escorted off the boat by security guards.



21 Jun 2020 12:38:23
Great to hear Lamps talking so highly about Kante and how important he is to the team. Also interesting to see he has been playing Ruben in a front 3 on the left. I have a feeling both will start today.


1.) 21 Jun 2020 13:59:36
We’ve seen last few days people getting injuries after long term injuries and putting them into a competitive match too soon can come back and haunt them so think that would be a silly idea. Kante, Ruben and even Pulisic would be better off coming off the bench and slowly being brought in. Don’t need injuries with Willian and Pedro going end of June as well. Should start same team as Everton we were brilliant that game and them players deserve another go especially the Barkley, Gilmour, Mount midfield.

2.) 21 Jun 2020 15:23:12
I called it, both Kante and Loftus-Cheek start...😏😏

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.

What a ridiculous comment, we have just agreed to sign Timo Werner while having no gaurentee of champions league football next season.
