Hi is there any chance of tammy signing a new contract and staying at Chelsea
And is there even one on the table
More to the point.


{Ed002's Note - Tammy Abraham (S) Was asked to sign a contract extension but is being a bit of a prima donna and a bitch which the club won't tolerate so the club will let him leave in the summer if an acceptable offer is made. Potential option for Wolves and Aston Villa but both have preferred options. West Ham have a huge list of potential striker options and have repeatedly failed to resolve their issue - they may come in to play. Borussia Dortmund asked Chelsea about his availability but it seems unlikely even though they have missed out on their preferred option. Newcastle, Arsenal and Milan may provide a wildcard options but Milan has preferred targets. Is being offered around.}

Thanks for your swift reply and comprehensive answer its a shame he won't knuckle down and sign the contract and see what happens he is either going to end up at a middle to lower end prem side or a back up striker at a top 6 club.

2.) 28 Jul 2021 11:19:44
Hi Ed002, who was the player that Borussia Dortmund missed out on?

{Ed002's Note - Martin Satriano.}

3.) 28 Jul 2021 12:52:18
@johnfozzie he didn't get a look in though and got no chances. I wouldn't sign a contract either. Had the same goals as Werner in half the appearances but never played for tuchel. I'd look to leave too.



12 Jul 2021 17:29:38
Would it be feasible to compromise with Dortmond to pay a fee in-between this years valuation and his supposed buy out next year

And loan him back for the season.


{Ed002's Note - For some sides yes but not for Chelsea

1.) 12 Jul 2021 18:17:41
Thanks Ed I was just trying for a back up plan.

2.) 12 Jul 2021 18:30:10
Presumably Chelsea want a deal done this summer or not at all Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - they need at least one striker.

3.) 12 Jul 2021 20:26:45
I say we push for Lautaro Martinez or the Brentford guy (Toney) if we can’t get Haaland. I don’t want Lukaku.

4.) 12 Jul 2021 20:47:57
Time has a way of solving some problems. As the transfer window progresses, a lot of things will indeed change, I am hoping that we might not have any need for other options cos we might have a breakthrough in the Haaland deal.

5.) 13 Jul 2021 07:13:58
I have always been optimistic about haland especially if Chelsea really want him. it will happen just needs time. we would have moved on if there wasn't hope.

6.) 13 Jul 2021 11:16:25
ED002, if we don't get Haaland . can you tell us who our other targets for striker are?

{Ed002's Note - There are a number of options that have been discussed but I don't really want to get in to it.}



06 Sep 2020 17:00:31
A question for the eds or anyone else really
I know we are looking to move players on but I wondered realistically what players you think will move and what will happen to the surplus players that we can't find moves for
Because at the moment with our incomings and returning players we have a very ober inflated squad.


{Ed002's Note - I have provided a list of players who are available - many have already gone - loans etc..}

1.) 07 Sep 2020 13:19:07
Talking of loans; Ethan Ampadu could be on his way out on loan (hearing Sheffield) . I am in support that he goes on loan to an EPL side as long as he plays regularly. Besides, Sheffield has a manager that can help him improve on his defensive game (whether as a defensive midfielder or a central defender) .



20 Aug 2020 15:17:33
Hi Ed I know this is probubly a stupid question and I am prepared to be shot down by your wicked wit
But there is talk of messi leaving Barcelona I know in the past we have been linked and a couple of years ago would have made a serious play
For him I'm just wondering would chelsea be interested
I for one don't think he fits into the brief of the team at the moment and what realistically would it take to buy him and who would be interested
Not totally Chelsea related but I know in the past it was said it was possible.


{Ed002's Note - Chelsea are not now nor have ever been interested in signing Messi.}

1.) 20 Aug 2020 15:38:59
Thank you
But out of interest what sort of deal would it take to buy Messi.

{Ed002's Note - Huge wages.}

2.) 20 Aug 2020 19:54:03
Love it Ed
As the saying goes you ask a stupid question lol.

3.) 21 Aug 2020 01:22:55
Judging by Ed’s previous comments on Messi moving it seems it would likely be to a team that is sponsored by Adidas. Adidas’ top 6 teams (income wise) that they sponsor are Real Madrid, Manchester United, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Flamengo which probably realistically leaves United, Juventus and Bayern as options for different reasons. (Assuming he wants to continue playing in the Champions League)

4.) 21 Aug 2020 03:19:39
Pretty sure it was 2015. Chelsea along with our then shirt sponsors, Adidas, attempted to come up with a package to lure Messi away from Barcelona/ Nike. This was happening around the time that Messi was have tax issues in Spain. Can’t recall whether we’d come up with anything close to be actually presentable but think 6-7months later we ended up cancelling our contract with Adidas and Barcelona ended up paying Messi’s tax burden.

{Ed002's Note - Only one club has actually tried to buy Messi by offering to pay his buy out clause and that was not Chelsea. Barcelona and a commercial partner resisted an approach by Adidas to help fund a purchase of a player on behalf of a club they were looking to invest in.}



04 Jul 2020 16:40:39
Hi Ed
I know you are not giving specifics
But are Chelsea looking to address the glaring problems with our defence and goalkeeper as most of the talk I am hearing is about forward players .
Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - There is no point in my explaining about the defence I am afraid John.}

1.) 04 Jul 2020 16:56:33
OK I understand thank you

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

04 Aug 2021 19:13:53
Hi Ed with no real firm offers seemingly on the table for zouma and the contracts of rudi and Christianson not not signed
Could one or both of those move on
Especially with chalobah doing so well pre season.


{Ed002's Note - It is getting messy again on here so I am going to step back again.}

1.) 04 Aug 2021 22:18:28
Johnfozzie Ed002 has only just posted an update on potential outgoings. Please use the search function if you're not bothered reading the posts.

2.) 05 Aug 2021 08:46:44
Apologies to all especially to Ed 2 I had read the info
And unfortunately my written question didn't come out as I'd intended it to in my head
So apologies for being illiterate hope I've not offended.



03 Aug 2021 20:13:38
A question for the eds and anyone
Our pursuit of a top striker if we don't get lukaku kane or headland who would be the next best options
Obviously martinez is one.


1.) 03 Aug 2021 20:35:00
Viahovic would be one to consider.

I suppose if the club believes it can sign Halaand next season then I guess they could go for a stop gap.

2.) 03 Aug 2021 23:20:19
Ed002 said that there is a lot of interest in Dusan Vlahovic but he didn't say from which clubs.

3.) 04 Aug 2021 07:49:12
Vlahovic will go to Spurs if they sell Kane.



28 Jul 2021 15:50:18
Hi Ed I apologise if you find this tedious
I was wondering if any other sides were in serious negotiations for
E headland regarding a transfer this year I know you said Madrid want mbappe and maybe eh
Next year
Many thanks
For boys of a vintage age thete isn't much to get excited about these days so a star signing for the blues as sad as it sounds
Is appealing.


{Ed002's Note - I do find it tedious. I have explained the situation with Real Madrid and nothing has changed.}

1.) 28 Jul 2021 16:21:48
Apologies I didn't word it well enough
Sorry will leave it now.

2.) 28 Jul 2021 17:58:11
I think we all should stop bugging Ed about Haaland. It is clear the club have indicated an interest and/ or made a bid. Chelsea want him but it’s up to his club and the player to agree the transfer. For all we know BD may have some sort of agreement with RM to sell him on above his release clause next summer. If we do get him it will be a long drawn out process but I think it’s unlikely to happen.
Eds you may not be able to comment but I presume the redevelopment of Stamford Bridge is dead and buried. I never thought it was economically viable in any event. The estimated cost was a billion pounds which I thought was very conservative considering the plan envisioned digging down 15 metres and a 3 year build for 18, 000 extra seats.

{Ed002's Note - There is no agreement with Real Madrid. The development issue is nothing at all to do with money.}

3.) 28 Jul 2021 19:59:42
Thanks Ed . Just my suspicious mind about an agreement between the parties involved. I am surprised the aborted redevelopment isn’t about money given the likely cost against benefits- I wouldn’t blame the club if it was.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with money.}

4.) 28 Jul 2021 20:48:05
Ed sorry to be cheeky but is it to do with Roman’s visa issue?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

5.) 28 Jul 2021 21:14:55
Thanks Ed, you have answered two questions, I won’t bother you again .

6.) 29 Jul 2021 01:18:16
Not posted for a while every time he speaks he doesn’t fill me with confidence that he wants to join Chelsea, so am not to interested in EH to be fair we have the money if we want him why not just come out and do it, there’s nobody to match us at this time Barcelona and Madrid are struggling Milan teams are broke no one in the prem are near us with fair play and money. Just go for him or leave it and go for someone else like Lukaku. Also the person who has the problem at Chelsea about RL must get over his self and move on due to he would most likely be the best option.

7.) 29 Jul 2021 09:17:28
If the club can’t get its first choice it will move onto its other choices Nib. My guess is Lukaku will be amongst those choices.

8.) 29 Jul 2021 09:28:18
Nib who has an issue with Lukaku? The only reason Lukaku isn't at Chelsea is because we penny pinched when he was at Everton.



27 Jul 2021 18:09:49
Has a new contract been offered to tammy A
And is there a chance he may stay and fight for his place or has his bridges been burnt
Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - RTP.}

1.) 27 Jul 2021 21:11:55
That’s the trouble with Tammy he doesn’t fight on the pitch only off the pitch to secure an improved contract.

2.) 27 Jul 2021 21:43:44
The first should get the second Jimbo.

3.) 27 Jul 2021 22:59:14
That’s why he won’t get a new contract!



22 Jul 2021 05:55:25
Hi Ed
Is there any serious interest in our established players that have become fringe or surplus to the squad
Bats, tammy, loftus, bakayoko
Or will they be integrated into the squad
Many thanks for your time.


{Ed002's Note - Yes, there is plenty of interest in players.}

Its a shame reuban has or had everything but I think injuries has just stopped him becoming the top player that he could be he definatly needs games so playing at Chelsea he's not going to get 9 or 10 chances with average performances it will be sad to see him go but for his career I think he has to.

Thanks for your swift reply .
I can see the press making a major issue of it if we don't get our targets and have a blip in form and can see that causing disharmony.
