Atal injured today, serious knee injury apparently, rules him out of a move, shame.

I believe your travelling ed so can't give a full update but wondering briefly what defenders we are looking at and if the Nathan ake rumours are true that we are very keen on him .

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - Ian travellingfor a couple more weeks. Nathan Ake is a player Chelsea would like when a need arises but there is very significant interest from elsewhere to take him in the summer.}

1.) 08 Dec 2019 16:25:22
Thank you for response and safe travels.

{Ed002's Note - Thanks.}

2.) 08 Dec 2019 18:25:56
Personally It is a relief, not much of an improvement on what we already have. We should be aiming for an experienced CB with physical and leadership attributes. I would wait for ED2 update later.

3.) 08 Dec 2019 19:07:13
Wonder what Ruben Dias would be valued at, ticks a lot of boxes. 22/ 23 years old so don’t know if his the big commanding experienced man we need .

4.) 08 Dec 2019 20:51:11
Nathan Ake would do a Van Dijk I think, if he came back. Superb defender and can cover many positions.

5.) 08 Dec 2019 23:55:00
Van Dijk lol.

6.) 09 Dec 2019 07:27:01
Why is that so farfetched? Van Dijk had a similar situation at Southampton to Ake at Bournemouth. If you are going to criticise an opinion, at least say why, rather than just belittiling it.

7.) 09 Dec 2019 11:22:49
I just wouldn't understand why we would be interested in Ake. Personally, I think that he is a very average defender and certainly no better than what we have - in fact, I would suggest that Tomori, Rudiger and Guehi are far better. And, as for comparing Ake with Van Dyke, I just don't see the comparison.

8.) 09 Dec 2019 12:46:40
Because Ake is nowhere near Van Dijk nor will he ever be so there’s my opinion I’d of thought it would have been obvious to everyone else why.

9.) 09 Dec 2019 15:27:25
I’m not a fan of making player comparisons. If he joins our club he will, I’m sure, be given every chance by the fans to show us just how good he is in a better team than Bournemouth.

10.) 09 Dec 2019 16:55:49
Ake would be needed because he's a left footed CB. We don't have any of those and it's no surprise whoever's had to play the LCB spot has struggled. Playing the ball out from the back you need your CB to either be good with both feet or to play on the same side as their strong foot. Personally i think we can do better than Ake but i like him and he's an upgrade on any of our CB's playing in the LCB spot.

CAS appeal to be heard on November 20,

Got excited about Chelsea having interest in Werner as possible Giroud replacement. I'm sure we have other targets and other factors so hopefully nobody takes its as definite or anything but little bit of news on transfer front,

Matt martin

1.) 27 Oct 2019 23:00:50
Agree Matt he’d be a great option. Can push Tammy and can also play out wide.

2.) 28 Oct 2019 10:25:00
Given a choice Werner would be my choice as well and as mentioned for his ability to score goals both centrally and playing in a wider position as Anelka did for us.

3.) 28 Oct 2019 16:36:32
Does excite me tbf, lighting fast, hard worker and presses well, hits the ball so well and is a really good age,



25 Oct 2019 13:09:13
Just saw the sun going with us wanting Callum Wilson and Tini Werner in January, lol as ridiculous as that is, I like the link to Werner, can play as wide forward or 9, I'm sure I reward something about him having medical problems, something with his hearing?

Matt martin

1.) 25 Oct 2019 15:12:16
Think he has to wear earplugs in loud stadiums.

{Ed001's Note - that is correct mate. Loud noises cause him to suffer with vertigo. Could be an interesting excuse if the ref wants to card him for diving. I didn't dive honest, it just suddenly got loud and my legs gave out....}

2.) 25 Oct 2019 15:54:17
Haha won’t be a problem for old Trafford emirates and etihad,

3.) 25 Oct 2019 15:55:49
Knew I was right Ed thanks for confirmation just incase G8 started again 😂 he needs to learn to listen to me.

4.) 26 Oct 2019 00:21:07
Or Stamford bridge Matt can’t be biased 😂 that’s why I only follow away games.

5.) 26 Oct 2019 11:38:52
And Liverpool, YNWA before the game * 90 silence * YNWA at full time,

Remember Jody Morris Instagram post laughing at jose about Jose being worried for us, we'll by time we finish game v Tottenham they could be above us. Funny one Jody.

Matt martin

1.) 14 Dec 2019 19:58:11
You never know, the Jose comments could work in a favour!



14 Dec 2019 15:49:07
First half v Bournemouth, we look comfortable in play, not so much from corners. Nothing really sticking for Tammy. But flat and predictable, need to go up a gear or 2,

Matt martin

1.) 14 Dec 2019 17:09:23
finding home games tough all season mate.



11 Dec 2019 15:53:41
Busy period coming up, CHO needs to play his way back into form, start him and give him that confidence, his been a little flat recently. Need him carrying the ball and 1v1.

Matt martin

1.) 11 Dec 2019 17:57:57
I can't see how he gets in ahead of Pulisic or Willian. Worst yet, given our recent form can Lampard take the gamble and start him?

He has been very flat. His had minutes off the bench and a lot more than what was afforded to Pulisic or what's being given to Batshuayi currently.

Maybe the injury is mentally affecting him.

2.) 11 Dec 2019 18:08:18
he hasn't got a run either he seems like he needs a run but its a big call to drop pulisic an willian both work very hard for the team and playing well.

3.) 11 Dec 2019 18:51:07
Pulisic and Willian played a lot of games, frank will have no choice but to rotate, maybe 343 like v wolves at times too, Bournemouth are in terrible form like West Ham were but they do have a way of playing that’s open, will need to be clinical, Wilson and king are fast so we will have to be switched on,

4.) 11 Dec 2019 22:44:10
and bournemouth always make it tough for us 2.



10 Dec 2019 16:58:27
Werner could be our vardy, willing runner, rapid and knows where the goal is, I know Ed's has said he wants Bayern and Bayern want him but rumours and odds are picking up so hopefully we can go for him,

Matt martin

1.) 10 Dec 2019 17:33:41
Another name I think might be interesting is Omsimhen from Lille. I hope plays tonight, impresses - although not that he scores - and perhaps he might be an interesting replacement for Giroud?

2.) 10 Dec 2019 18:19:21
I think Werner might be available I heard Bayern waited too long and messed him about so he doesn’t want to go there now. Is there any truth in that Ed?

{Ed002's Note - There isi Teresa in him from a number of sides including Bayern - but they also have an interest in another.}

3.) 11 Dec 2019 02:01:11
Teresa? Teresa May isn’t back is she?



07 Dec 2019 18:58:59
What's the obsession with Nathan ake? On here and social media, his a good defender, not brilliant but not terrible, doesn't concentrate and hardly rock solid for Bournemouth, £40m player who would only improve depth rather than quality in the squad, would be a sideways step and £40 of budget gone,

Matt martin

1.) 07 Dec 2019 20:17:38
I thinks its for depth. His better than the depth we have I suppose.

2.) 07 Dec 2019 20:24:09
Exactly, good player but in the same bracket as Christensen/ Zouma. Not an improvement on what we have I think. Needs to be a game changer like Koulibaly.

3.) 07 Dec 2019 21:02:01
matt martin im not sure he's going to improve much either but if it is a transfer that's going to happen let's be positive rather than negative about it.

4.) 07 Dec 2019 22:20:18
£40m of our transfer budget to not improve though. A player we sold, that £40 could buy dembele or grimaldo, I find it unbelievable that we haven’t learnt our lessons ( if even true ) with the Bakyoko drinkwater deals, players who will be amongst the squad but not give any real competition, rudiger back almost so that’s 4 CBS, why spend £40m on one who’ll be behind 3/ 4 names we have, I’m just saying I don’t think our transfer business in recent years has been great and these kids are good enough to be amongst it so only players bought in should be too top class, quality over quantity,

5.) 08 Dec 2019 08:56:20
to be fair matt martin every chelsea fan thought bakayoko was going to be a midfield destroyer so u can't use thay example. id go more to the easy picks like zapacosta drinkwater barkley etc.

6.) 08 Dec 2019 10:41:09
To be fair I did think that too about Bakyoko but yeah any squad fillers, a player who we know won’t be a starter but good squad player, we need serious competition, players looking over there shoulders because the man behind him is good enough to take his spot,

7.) 08 Dec 2019 18:00:52
yeah wev signed a lot of those types last 3 or 4 years remember that baba rahman fella he's another 1 we waisted money on an keep sending him out on loan.

Lampard wants to improve the team - zaha is better than Pedro and Willian, my worry is it’s 70-80 million of our budget when there’s other younger players, 50-60m would be about right but to palace his worth a lot more and that’s my problem with a move for zaha.

Ed, very very appreciated, thank you, Werner wouldn’t of been my 1st choice but he wants Bayern and they want him, I imagine dembele there’d be competition but I’d be over the moon, don’t know enough about others to comment,

I am angry mate. The result was bad but it’s what we deserved, we’ve lost to teams we shouldn’t and players when u look over a season and the loses and the wins you think, would we of won without them. yeah probably. would we of lost if XXXX was bought in, . no we wouldn’t, And I hate spurs and top 4 would be huge in franks first year and with hazard gone and blooding young players I got, I do expect more from some, and what I will say is, dean frank to terry to mount and Jorginho, praise when deserve and be critical when deserved, I don’t want frank gone, Mount is good squad player, but we can strengthen in quality. Hope your in a better mood than me mate lol enjoy rest of weekend.

Is it negative to point out who wasn’t good today. Lampard for one, and this isn’t a frank out etc but he was naive today, he can’t get them performing v teams bottom of league, William again offering nothing. Jorginho. first time chipped passes which are a nightmare to bring down and do anything with because closes down, Tammy had no service, honeymoons overs and I think the transfer ban being lifted has made few players heads drop,

I’m really nervous, but a confident 4-1, hoping we score early and there heads drop: and the 1 is because we can’t keep clean sheet,

I think it’ll be close and agree, think United problem is that chelsea city spurs Leicester arsenal all played you they have a way of playing and with attack, which suits you, hence why v Newcastle and wolves etc teams like that don’t care about attractive football and will defend, so rashford and James and martial pace isn’t key with the space to run into, arsenal are so low I’m not overly worried with them, spurs will be very dangerous and once they stop the soft goals they’ll go in a big run,
