Just seen Mount is close to joining Derby on loan.

Excited to see him working with Frank Lampard and Morris.

Thank GOD we kept hold of Hazard.


1.) 27 Sep 2018 10:04:25
Need to keep him till he retires.

2.) 27 Sep 2018 20:44:12
kylian or eden?

3.) 27 Sep 2018 22:05:52
Your on fire loko!

4.) 27 Sep 2018 22:18:16
Either way, every time he scores goals like that, his pricetag edges towards £300m.

5.) 27 Sep 2018 22:26:10
Kylian of course.

6.) 28 Sep 2018 04:44:35
Miss Darren Wood, that would have been the case if he had a longer contract.

Anyone else worried about Morata?


1.) 03 Sep 2018 13:50:22
Not any more than last season. We all wanted bats to stay and morata to go.

2.) 03 Sep 2018 14:07:44
Not me Bobski.

3.) 03 Sep 2018 14:52:11
Tbf to morata he hasn’t done a great deal wrong this season it’s hard to get many chances when teams play so defensively, not a lot of space for him. He had one chance against arsenal and stuck it away. the chances will come this year for him. I do agree that for his price tag we should expect a lot more from him but with the great start we have had to the season I don’t think it’s fair to get on anyone’s back just yet it’s far to early for that.

4.) 03 Sep 2018 16:54:01
Hasn’t played bad hasn’t played well. Doesn’t seem to really be involved in games a lot of time. Giroud comes on and is amongst it and linking. Morata seems to be waiting for a tap in, also a lot of his goals were headers and were more patient and not a lot of balls into area from deep places like Azpi was last year.

5.) 03 Sep 2018 17:25:04
We need a kane or an aguero.

6.) 03 Sep 2018 22:27:29
Or a Costa bobski.

7.) 04 Sep 2018 15:25:37
Watch the game from Saturday, all the balls that went into the box, or to Morata, were low

0-0 and then Giroud comes on and we started to go longer and higher.

There was 2 different game plans when either striker was on.

I can guarantee, we'd be pissed off if Giroud started and we turned to hitting it long.

8.) 05 Sep 2018 09:45:06
When it's in the air unless it's straight at Morata he doesn't win it. Gets bullied by defenders whilst Giroud does the bullying.

9.) 05 Sep 2018 11:34:25
I agree with Saim. A better striker will expose to you Morata's inabilities. Morata is poor with his feet, hardly beats his man and very frail on duels. He scores mainly when the ball is on pinpoint to him. How I wish Costa had stayed (without his baggage though. ) A striker who can decide a game even when the team is not at their best especially now that we boss teams.
Giroud should start now on until we can a better striker. Michy is not the solution as we don't need a goal scorer but who can lead the line.



02 Aug 2018 09:01:24
I didn't watch the game last night but read some reviews.

Heard some positives re: Morata's etc. but seems he still can't finish his dinner (and pens) .

We need a proper striker who is guaranteed goals. we have never replaced Costa and I can see it costing us big time.

Hudson Odoi is confirmed as staying and I couldn't be happier with that.

After a summer of hype, Loftus Cheek (i am a fan FYI) was brought back to reality with a bang and he needs to knuckle down and really prove his worth at Chelsea. its OK doing it at Palace but Chelsea is a whole different matter.

I'm hoping to see a few new faces before the end of the window and hope Courtois and Willian have their futures sorted out sharpish!

Roll on Sunday.


1.) 02 Aug 2018 09:19:49
I don’t know why we haven’t aimed at Icardi he’s a leader and a proven goal scorer. Sell Morata and Giroud and go for Icardi and use Michy as back up.

2.) 02 Aug 2018 10:30:06
Morata was poor mate, not sure who told you otherwise. Back to the missing one on ones and jumping on the floor waving at the ref because he was weaker than the defender. I'm finding it difficult to keep supporting him when he isn't delivering. Whilst I would never demand that we sell a player, I'm not overly enthused by him being our first choice striker.

3.) 02 Aug 2018 11:23:17
Can we please stop with all this Icardi nonsense - his club don't want to sell him and he doesn't want to leave. And if he is ever available, the big boys will be in for him.

4.) 02 Aug 2018 13:31:15

5.) 02 Aug 2018 15:28:16
Hahaha; is Chelsea not a big boy?



25 Jun 2018 15:50:12
Kovacic wants to leave Real for more game time. Would love him at Chelsea.


1.) 25 Jun 2018 19:27:59
Same here we should be all over him he’s like a gong bull good on the ball and physical too would suit the league to a T.

2.) 26 Jun 2018 02:18:44
Raging bull I meant 🙈.

{Ed001's Note - so glad you explained that, I was so confused!}

3.) 26 Jun 2018 16:12:25
What’s you’re thoughts on Kovacic as a player Ed? Would he suit Chelsea and the premier league if we decided to take interest.

{Ed001's Note - ability wise he would be perfect, the problem is that he has not been able to play regularly and that has to be a worry. I know people bow at the altar of Kroos, but to me he is a lazy get and has a tendency to give the ball away easily. Kovacic has the potential to be a much better player but he has been unable to displace him. That suggests he is probably not working hard enough in training to force his way in.}

4.) 26 Jun 2018 19:26:13
You know if Chelsea are interested, think I read spurs were interested and Juve?

{Ed001's Note - I know they have been in the past, not sure about now.}

Lee Bowyer quoted this morning in the DM claiming Jay Dasilva is better than Ashley Cole was at the same age.
Promote the youth.


1.) 10 May 2018 14:44:26
A good friend of mine is a Charltom season ticket holder and he rates Dasilva incredibly highly, he also won player of the year for the addicks this season. I’m sure he’d be a decent option as cover at wing back but the premier league is a huge step up from league 1.

2.) 10 May 2018 15:45:30
The kid (Jay DaSilva) is always got the ability (to play in the Chelsea squad) but not at this time. He's still got a lot to learn and needs quality experience (loan) . l.

3.) 10 May 2018 21:08:34
Add Mason Mount (Vitesse player of the season) to DaSilva - but I agree with obinna, both are a season or 2 away from our 1st team.

The new "squad" suggestion above pretty much undoes all the hard work currently being done by lamps and Morris to blood these youngsters in.

do you really think if any of them start making the first 11 then get bumped down into the subs bench for young foreigners is the way we should go? we've got youngsters proving their worth here, which is what most fans including myself have wanted for sometime and already you're dismantling it.

Tomori Geuhi Zouma at CB. i think we are good for a while, Rudiger can more than mentor these lads in defence. Unless any of them decline seriously like Christensen has. We need monsters at the back at to me he comes across too nice.

Reece James is Azpi's successor that's clear as day and he's going to be some player. yet you've put him on the bench. Azpi can still do a job at centre back so there is even more experienced cover there.

I'd love Chillwell at Chelsea personally for LB and i think that move might happen just hope the fee isn't too daft. Emerson has been great. I expected Alonso to move on in the summer but im certain he won't be here next season.

The hardest decision is the central midfield. we have players now abundance and with RLC still to come back which i think will be the end of Barkley. I don't think Kante will be with us much longer (season or two left if that) .

Pulisic is and will continue to really struggle with us. super cup final i thought he was great but he's fizzled somewhat and I'm conscious that his eagerness to return early has played its part in that - i don't know.

You've also demoted Abraham at the moment he's scoring goals, yes he's missed a few chances but he's scored 7 goals, one shy of aguero and I'm not suggesting that he is of his level - but to have an opinion like that (which you are entitled to of course) after only 6 games into the season i feel is ridiculous.

Batsuayhi i feel has always been unlucky with us, he knows where the goal is and he does score goals when given the opportunity.

Giround i expect to move on at the end of the season.

the post above suggests a complete overhaul and i really think you're over thinking it. we just need a few additions unless of course someone leaves. There's already been massive changes, let's just see how this season pans out first, aye?

Completely agree Shak. I think the integration of our youth would play a huge part in that "team mentality/ unity" with a Lampard/ Morris/ Terry appointment.

Some positive signs regarding Abraham too!

I "read" somewhere that Chelsea have warned Madrid off jovic as a side agreement in the hazard transfer. Jovic would then remain at Frankfurt until Chelsea are in a position to purchase.
