Just seen an old rumour that inter want emerson, would love to see emerson go and hakimi come other way,

Matt martin

1.) 14 Apr 2021 15:34:47
Hakimi can only play as a right wing-back as far as I know - we already have CHO and Reece James in that position.


2.) 14 Apr 2021 17:39:25
Cho can play further up, competition for Reece and hakimi? Ed’s have mentioned hakimi as azpi replacment,


3.) 14 Apr 2021 18:48:33
I would snap their hands off immediately. not that Emerson has been a regular and hakimi is a class playercsn also evore. Much like Alonso dom needed for how TT play. good enough to replace CA and provide the needed motivation for Reece James. Big teams have options in all the positions.


4.) 14 Apr 2021 19:44:12
Is hakimi any good defensively? As in could he play on the right of a back 3, big strong fast but completely different position,

{Ed077's Note - Hakimi's strength isnt in defensive work IMO. I wouldnt think he would be ideal as a RCB in a back 3.}


5.) 15 Apr 2021 08:25:25
It all depends on who exits this club come the summer window and if we do 5 at the back or 4 at the back. Hakimi would be awesome but id say it will happen if CA retires and we move to a back 4 to give cover to RJ . i doubt Hakimi would move to be second choice to RJ.

plus we may also look to youth.


6.) 15 Apr 2021 08:49:16
I can’t see Dave retiring or leaving before the end of next season.


7.) 15 Apr 2021 09:09:46
CA is only 31, he has lost his pace but is still a very go defender. he still has a good 2-3 more years on him at the evry top.


8.) 15 Apr 2021 09:38:04
I can see Azpilicueta finishing off his career in Bilbao.


 

 

08 Apr 2021 15:34:34
Jorginhos agent apparently talking about jorg wanting a return to Italy,

Matt martin

1.) 08 Apr 2021 17:00:34
But also didn't he say he thinks the club will want to discuss a new contract?
I am sure the club would accept an offer of around £40m but in the current climate that seems unlikely.
The challenge this summer will be to find buyers for the players we do want to move on like Barkley.

{Ed002's Note - Jorginho (DM/CM) Expect him to stay - there is no declared interest at this time and Chelsea would want a decent return on the player - they have learned a lot from loans with options through the like of Bakayoko. Napoli has shown no interest and about fourth on Milan's list, and Inter have two serios options before they will be looking at the also rans.}

Thanks Ed002.


4.) 08 Apr 2021 21:33:25
Forgive me if already mentioned but what’s the situation with Bakyoko?

{Ed002's Note - He is on loan and Chelsea will look to sell him in the summer.}


5.) 08 Apr 2021 21:51:13
Ok, I wasn’t sure if finally there’s was an
Obligation with Napoli or other interest.


6.) 08 Apr 2021 22:44:45
Ed002 we should look to do loans with obligations then and hearing sarri linked with roma alot, if that happens then surely he would want roma to move for jorginho.

{Ed002's Note - It really doesn’t work like that.}


7.) 08 Apr 2021 23:55:32
We need dm though, if jorginho did stay then would that mean we would not go for a dm? And what would happen with gilmour as he is barely getting minutes now?


8.) 09 Apr 2021 10:28:05
Perhaps, Chelsea can do something with Bakayoko to get Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco. I am just thinking aloud 😜.


 

 

05 Mar 2021 19:00:59
Ed's, not asking who were linked to or interest more a general who is out there question, haaland seems to be the no1 option for a lot of clubs, what other strikers are out there who are at a level we need, I presume City turning to haaland because Martinez of inter isn't leaving, remember him being one of there targets? lukaku isn't really welcome back,

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City has an interest in Haaland because of Aguero - they would like Martinez but that is now very difficult. Obviously it is easy to list the likes of Haaland, Mbabbe, Maritinez and Kane, and youngsters like Jaoa Felix, Trincao, Antony, Esposito and Kulusevski who look to be heading for a very good future - but clubs need to look at how they will fit in, culture, language and critical the full cost of ownership.}


1.) 06 Mar 2021 08:53:35
Hi Ed
Are any clubs looking at Darwin Nunuz benfica heard both Liverpool and Chelsea have scouted him.

{Ed002's Note - Darwin Nunez (S) Only moved last summer but there is growing interest in the player and Manchester City remain very keen.}


 

 

24 Feb 2021 12:40:47
It's been same for 2 years now, so what's the deal with Tammy Abraham and a new deal, have we offered one or is it not enough or does he want assurances of playing time and role or what and if his not going or thinking of signing will we sell while he has few years left and again. any interest?

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea would like him to sign an extension but he wants assurances and Chelsea don't give assurances. They will also want to avoid him running his contract down.}


1.) 24 Feb 2021 14:45:42
Sell him.


2.) 24 Feb 2021 18:08:05
It certainly doesn't help a lot when we are constantly pursuing Haaland. A big money signing like Haaland will get more playing time no matter how he is playing.

It won't help if he goes out and have a career like Lukaku.


3.) 24 Feb 2021 18:09:23
Yeah get rid. Not strong enough on the ball to be honest.


4.) 24 Feb 2021 19:27:55
Cash in. Put it towards haaland, who would buy him, top 6 have better options, wolves Everton villa Leeds Southampton all have better strikers. Maybe West Ham? Ed, can I ask and forgive me if I’ve got it wrong, but haaland apparently has a release Clause which is active next year if rumours are true, the interest we have is it to try get something done before his release clause, I imagine it would cost bit more than his release clause but would stop a more teams being able to afford him next year?

{Ed002's Note - You should try and forget about release clauses. There is a termination clause but the expectation remains that he will be available and be sold this summer with a number of other major player assets Borussia Dortmund have whilst they fight off difficult times - they have a bunch of players available but there is no plan for bargain sales. A number of clubs are interested in EH but each has a different MO or circumstances.}


5.) 24 Feb 2021 19:57:13
Would throw him into a possible Halaand deal if he's insisting on assurance for a regular top striker for us like as clueless one gifted him . we need a a world class striker like big teams in europe. to return to our dominant best again . at least TT has shown we are not too far off unlike the the mile off with Frank.


6.) 24 Feb 2021 20:44:16
If we are going for the instant success route why not going for Harry Kane? It'll be hard but it won't be far fetched.


7.) 24 Feb 2021 20:48:45
Right now I'd sign Haaland (obviously), try and get Giroud to sign on for another year and, as I've said before, look to bring Soonsup-Bell through over the next couple of years.


8.) 24 Feb 2021 20:56:21
I think we all hope we had been “gifted” a 30 goal a season striker in Werner. Maybe next season.

I think we will be getting another striker in the next window but I’m not sure who be leaving.


9.) 24 Feb 2021 22:11:15
Harry Kane would cost more thanHaaland and Tottenham wouldn’t sell him to us and then there is his injury issues and lastly the cost of an interpreter .


10.) 24 Feb 2021 22:11:20
Sell tammy to villa and get grealish.


11.) 25 Feb 2021 00:25:34
Brilliant jimbo made laugh.


12.) 25 Feb 2021 00:28:39
Why would villa want him. They have Watkins.


13.) 25 Feb 2021 04:47:43
It's a good point Matt, I was trying to think of where he'd end up! I certainly don't think European football would be on the cards, if he stayed in England.


14.) 25 Feb 2021 06:45:34
Of course it would be costlier but if we get back to back PL/ CLs with him, wouldn't it be worth it?
And I'm sure Levy won't say no to 90m£.
Also his agent is not Raiola. So I guess that's a win in itself. Tammy can learn from him too.

{Ed077's Note - Levy rarely sells Spurs' first team players to another PL team let alone to a London based local rival 2ho also compete for top 4.}


15.) 25 Feb 2021 07:44:05
Jimbo, that was a good laugh.
on the point of TA . note that strikers rarely come good at 22 . we see the best of strikers after the age of 26 with a few exceptions.

if TA wants to leave for playing time and to develop further . i don't think we should stand in his way . as for the foreseeable future . he will remain No2 on the strikers list.

Grealish, as much as he is a good player . he likes the floor a bit too much for my liking.
As a person who like the physical side of the game, i completely dislike his style cause he goes down so easily. if he can just stay up and get playing . id say id want him at Chelsea

another player id hate to see in chelsea blue is Salah for the same reason as above . its shameful how he goes down like a theatre artist.


16.) 25 Feb 2021 08:14:05
We very rarely stand in players way. If they want to go we generally let them go.

This would apply to both Tammy and Giroud.


17.) 25 Feb 2021 09:57:24
Tammy is not good enough to get assurances.

Would cash in this summer before his value drops.

{Ed002's Note - The club don't give assurances.}


18.) 25 Feb 2021 11:59:23
Want to point out that Tammy is currently our top scorer at the moment, He's not brilliant at times to watch I'll admit but he's still learning and has his best years ahead of him. He's still very young and has an exciting future why do people want him out? I remember people wanting Lukaku out and now look at him wanted by every team in Europe! Tammy has proven himself a lot better than some of the strikers we have signed in the last 10 years and he's from the youth academy that every wishes we had more first team players from. What more does he need to do? We would be mad I think to sell or let him go.


19.) 25 Feb 2021 12:26:25
demmingtonbear, If Tammy insists on having assurances that the club are reluctant to give and with just one year left on his contract, he will probably be sold. There will be plenty of interested clubs

Giroud may not take up any offer of a contract extension of another club make him an offer of more than year. Giroud and his family may well want to satay in the London region. I can see at least one London club offering him more than a one year contract.

So, to a certain extent both decisions could be slightly out of our control.


20.) 25 Feb 2021 12:59:16
Very true ed077. Still it would be brilliant addition.
But my point is that if we are going to take the instant success road, we have to buy players that are in their prime.

Very good points dareryk. I completely agree.

I totally agree with you too denningtonbear. We also have at least 3 good striker in our academy. Borja is doing very well in Vitesse. Soonsup-Bell is another good prospect. And we have Ugbo that's doing good in Championship.

Tammy and Werner are more than capable to have 25 goals per season and in my opinion we should only look to add a player in his prime to instantly improve us, like when Diego Costa did.

I don't really like Lukaku but he seems to be the best fit.

{Ed077's Note - but Kane to Chelsea looks like a very very unlikely transfer at this moment in time to me.}


21.) 25 Feb 2021 14:31:33
Yeah that's probably right ed077.


22.) 25 Feb 2021 21:11:27
I think Spurs would be be looking for a lot more than 90 million for Kane - there is no way he is coming to Chelsea. As for Tammy, I accept his is still young but he just hasn’t got in. I imagine he is angling for a huge increase in his contract- he’s not worth it. Even if we don’t buy another striker I would get rid of him and try other academy players rather than boost his overgrown ego.


23.) 25 Feb 2021 23:54:38
wanting assurances= no cojones for the fight. He should be welcoming top competition for places. He sounds like he's got bundles of confidence and self belief so why not fight for your place. Arrogance?


24.) 26 Feb 2021 07:08:16
Maybe because they overlook homegrown talent?


25.) 26 Feb 2021 07:42:12
Of course Tammy is going to want an improvement in his current contract and that will mean he is paid a lot more money. Good for him.

He won’t be getting playing assurances so he has a decision to make and that’s ok.

I can’t really see what the problem is? We apparently want him to stay and are willing to offer him a new contract. If he doesn’t sign, my guess is he will be sold.

This decision would have nothing to do with him being an ex academy player, just good business.


26.) 05 Mar 2021 11:09:46
I agree Tom, his aspirations may have well overtaken his "actual". Tammy has attributes that suit certain games, but not all, and if he thinks he should be 1st choice every time then he is at the wrong club. If he want's to be an automatic 1st choice then he needs to lower his expectations to mid/ lower EPL or Top Championship side, where, if I'm brutally honest, is his actual level.

Havertz tested positive for C.V..

Matt martin

1.) 04 Nov 2020 23:22:08
Very sad. I wish him a speedy recovery. He definitely was missed today.

Havertz's short passes and receiving the ball in tight areas as well as finding pockets of space was definitely needed today.


2.) 07 Nov 2020 15:19:35
Rennes game showed how important he’s been to the team.

Well it was my wifes birthday weekend so she selfishly made us spend the day shopping. I'll give a recap on what I've read, man of the match names mentioned, jorginho silva mount chillwell hakim azpi, this tells me nobody out a foot wrong and lots of players stepped up, I've read the importance of a player like werner weather he was good or not the opposition can't relax and his always a threat and stretches Defences, mount from what I've seen was too much, saw a bit about him blocking KDB passing lanes and tracking him all the way until we win ball back, he has such an engine, I saw silva's stats today. wow. I'm going to watch to highlights and watch for myself but we're in a final, West Ham lost, spurs and Everton dropped points, every games a final. Well done boys, massive finish to season needed.

Glad we got Madrid but by time we face th, Verane Ramos hazard will be back lol.

Matt martin

1.) 14 Apr 2021 22:07:13
I didn’t fancy playing another English team, so I’m
pleased as well Matt but generally I like all our teams to do well.

Not sure Hazard will be back anytime soon but it would be nice to knock in a few against Courtois.

Would have helped with this weekend if the City game had gone into extra time.


2.) 15 Apr 2021 05:34:00
Real Madrid have shown they can defend and see out a game from how they played in this second leg against Liverpool. Zidane’s wealth of experience in this competition is frightening, won’t be an easy game. I pray we have a fully fit squad by the we play them.


3.) 15 Apr 2021 07:30:07
Madrid is going to be mighty tough Obinna but would be one of those too who prefer to face non English side even if it is the most successful one in history of competition just seems more glamorous than another clash with an EPL rival.


4.) 15 Apr 2021 08:51:25
All games in a Champions League Semi should be tough and of the three teams we could have played Real would be my preferred choice.


 

 

14 Apr 2021 20:50:46

Matt martin

1.) 14 Apr 2021 20:55:52
Me to I still think City will win they always do.


 

 

13 Apr 2021 22:01:03
The result is what counts, but if we play like we have in these two legs and it'll be as far as we go, porto never looked to threaten and it was a wonderful goal but Madrid / liverool have that quality to hurt us. As we do them, COME ON.

Matt martin

1.) 14 Apr 2021 07:22:29
We played that way knowing Porto would struggle to score. I feel giroud would of been best fit up top though.


2.) 14 Apr 2021 13:16:08
MM, I agree - if you compare the PSG / Bayern game to ours, it is like comparing top of the Prem to Sheffield United v Fulham.

And all the pundits are saying that Real are not the force they once were - they must have missed the way that Real tore Liverpool apart last week!


 

 

12 Apr 2021 14:23:54
Camavinga " apparently " not signing new contract, wonder if we are keen, hopefully not as a kante replacement as touchel appears to huge fan of NGolo.

Matt martin

1.) 12 Apr 2021 20:27:43
'A huge fan'? Why isn't TT starting him then?


2.) 12 Apr 2021 21:05:45
Because he’s had injury issues dating back to the Sarri season which are easily relatable to his over usage. Tuchel acknowledged it very early on.


3.) 13 Apr 2021 08:01:39
Completely sensible to save Kante for a tough League run in and potentially, at the very least, UCL semis.
