Callum has apparently signed a 5 year deal. Great news, one for the future and we get to see him grow at Chelsea,

Matt martin

1.) 23 Jul 2019 20:09:46
Matt Law has confirmed that he has agreed a new deal with Chelsea worth over £100,000/ week. Good news.

2.) 23 Jul 2019 23:09:32
Sky saying £180k/ week which is eye watering for an 18 year old imo but then again not my money so the club know better. I just think in a year or two he’ll want another contract or the club will want to extend it which will bump it even higher.

3.) 24 Jul 2019 03:10:11
It’s 100k and no more! Stop spreading false rumours of 180k. I’ve seen enough unnecessary CHO hate on Twitter that’s come from lies people spread. Half of Twitter was telling him to leave last week because they thought he was holding the club to ransom. No one knows the true story.

4.) 24 Jul 2019 10:18:26
Frankie you say it’s 100k and I’m spreading False stories but also say no one knows the true story 😂😂😂.

5.) 24 Jul 2019 13:50:30
Because about 5 different people like Matt Law and Simon Phillips (who both know a lot more than) are reporting it 🤣 so get with it and don’t make up pure rubbish! Who told you 180k a week? The little voice in you’re head? 😂.

6.) 24 Jul 2019 14:20:49
Frankie it is Sky who mentioned the figure of £180k per week.

I personally don’t care what the number is. For me it is just a statement of intent.

7.) 24 Jul 2019 15:06:24
Ah I wouldn’t listen to sky sports tomb much rather listen to carefree youth on twitter who’s very reliable. Sky have gone really downhill. Simon Phillips and Matt law are also very good when it comes to Chelsea news.

8.) 24 Jul 2019 15:43:27
My point is Frankie, it’s NOT the little voice in someone’s head. It’s Sky making out, as usual, it’s got the inside track.

9.) 24 Jul 2019 17:01:26
I even wrote sky in my comment 🙄😂😂😂.

10.) 24 Jul 2019 17:47:04
Sometimes people are a rush to make comments. I’ve done it myself plenty of times.

Onwards and upwards MY MIGHTY BLUES.



16 Jun 2019 15:32:55
Read that Chelsea wouldn't release Sarri until a manger is in place at chelsea, so Ed's does that mean frank is all but done or is there a twist to this managerial positions at chelsea,

Matt martin

{Ed001's Note - Chelsea were always willing to let Sarri go if he wanted to go, just like they do with players. They don't hold staff to ransom. It has been a policy since Roman took over that they only want those who are happy to be there.}

1.) 16 Jun 2019 15:38:12
Makes sense, there still an shortlist / interview stage or is frank the one now,

{Ed001's Note - as far as I know, which is not from the Chelsea side so it could be wrong, Frank is the chosen man. Certainly Derby are worried about losing him.}

2.) 16 Jun 2019 15:45:54
And also. Any sign of chelsea wanting the ban frozen to add anyone or they accepted and will go ahead with current players plus young loanees integrated into squad.

{Ed001's Note - I don't know what's happening there, it is between directors and lawyers, everything in the press is pure speculation. I would assume it comes down to whether or not Chelsea feel they will win. It is difficult to tell for sure.}

3.) 16 Jun 2019 15:51:35
Cheers ed for responses, hopefully additions can be made. Think frank will need some match winners, When Sarris tactics and plan A wasn’t working he had hazard to get us over the line, frank won’t have that so I think he will beee some help,

{Ed001's Note - it might help to have the players not rely on one player so much though. Liverpool were the same with Coutinho but the team lifted so much once he left and they stopped looking to him it was much better.}

4.) 16 Jun 2019 16:18:00
Agree but Liverpool had a CF who does the dirty work in pressing and dropping and links play who also scores and mane and salah either side, we have Giroud and an aging Willian / Pedro, and hoping Pulisic can hit the ground running and adding to that a manager who we don’t know how he will get on just the face the fans will back him even when / if things aren’t going well, it’s almost as if we’re starting the season expecting it to be poor but ktrying to keep fans onside,

{Ed001's Note - it was more that the players stopped looking to others than it is was about who was there mate. It was the same when Gerrard left too, the team actually played better as a team.}

5.) 16 Jun 2019 16:19:26
Plus Liverpool invested the coutinho money in VVD and Allison which ultimately made the difference in previous seasons, we can’t with hazard money which is a double blow.

{Ed001's Note - Allison only came in for last season, Coutinho effectively left the season before due to his feigning injury and playing up for most of the first half of the season before leaving in Jan. Honestly it did help bringing in van Dijk but you have 40 players (or however many it is) to come back from loan that could have a similar effect. Pulisic is a major talent too, he could be just as influential in time as Hazard.}

6.) 16 Jun 2019 16:35:04
Really looking forward to seeing Pulisic, his direct a work horse,

7.) 16 Jun 2019 17:20:12
Matt, it is true Liverpool did invest in a keeper and centre half but it could be argued that we have already made those investments in the last two windows.

Also, if some of our brighter loan players are in the squad they have a chance to impress the new manager in training and then matches.

8.) 16 Jun 2019 17:50:30
Those positions were examples, we need a few additions but ultimately we need a world class striker that we could again be without, and same for a world class midfielder who can contribute to goals, or a left back who doesn’t wish he was a winger, Liverpool lost a player and invested in were they needed to, we don’t have that luxury, Zouma / James etc may help with some depth but we lack goals,

9.) 16 Jun 2019 18:05:08
I agree about the lack of a goal scorer but it’s looks to me as if we will have Giroud, Tammy and Michy as our choices.

We will win the Premiership easy, NO worries!

10.) 16 Jun 2019 18:18:52
Obviously we will win it but it’s going to be a problem scraping 1-0’s with no goals, Giroud is a back up, Michy gets loaned out and doesn’t even become a guaranteed starter anywhere, and Tammy is ok I’m championship. let’s be very clear there’s a bit of a difference.

11.) 16 Jun 2019 18:57:47
This is the time of the year when I hope every Chelsea supporter, like you and me Matt, truly believe we win next seasons Premiership.

I also believe, we have to except that it’s unlikely we will ask for the ban to be postponed. If we do that, we are left with opportunities for some of our better loan players being given a chance to stake a claim for first team football.

I think adding them to our current squad and with a better work ethic from every player we will win the Premiership comfortably.

12.) 18 Jun 2019 01:10:22
Great replies ed001. Informative and friendly 🙂.

13.) 20 Jun 2019 08:40:07
As above Ed's really appreciate your replies/ input. Just a thought and looking for peoples and Ed's opinions. We had IMO the beast of a centre forward, perfectly suited to the EPL in Diego, apparantly not wanted by Athelico now. Yes, he may be a little delicate off the field, and on field wasn't what Conte obviously wanted, however I still think he's the centre forward we need back.
If appointed I think Lampard would get the very best out of him.
Straight swap for Morata, couldn't be happier.
As for the potential appt of Frank, yes, I agree with some posters out there, possibly a year or two too soon, however, what people don't take into account is Lampards high intelligence and the respect he would have from current players, many of which have played alongside him.
Hopefully if appointed he gets time (at Chelsea, yeah right lol) to create a culture within the club rather than a "win everything or your'e gone" attitude that our more recent "fans" seem to buy into.
I welcome yor comments.

{Ed001's Note - I think you would not recognise the Costa of now. Last time I saw him he had piled on the pounds and was back to being the 'not giving a toss' Costa. Someone like him at his best, perfect, but he is never going to be at his best for more than a couple of months at a time.}



09 Jun 2019 15:45:52
Chelsea have filed for ban to be frozen with CAS and expect to be able to operate in window - Marcotti.

Matt martin

1.) 09 Jun 2019 16:00:31
I assume, if it’s true, they have done it for a reason. Let’s hope it’s the centre forward.

2.) 09 Jun 2019 16:05:54
Moussa Dembélé or Seb Haller would be good choices probably. We've always done well with a strong forward to hold up the ball and occupy the CBs. Haller would fit that role perfectly.

Moussa Dembélé is more all around but I've read he's really good with his back to goal play as well. I'd take either in a heartbeat.

3.) 09 Jun 2019 16:10:46
It’ll be interesting if you’re right Matt. I’d immediatly go in for Nicolas Pepe, an Ivorian from Lille is the best of both worlds 😉.

4.) 09 Jun 2019 16:11:11

That's not what Marcotti said. It's on the podcast / TV Show.

He assumes that chelsea are hoping for a ban, and he offers an arguement. But he does not say that Chelsea have appealed.

5.) 09 Jun 2019 16:13:46
I’d take Moussa, we wanted him from Fulham before Celtic, quick natural finisher, young too, Moussa Haller Giroud would offer is everything and selling morata Michy Abraham would surely make it cost affective?

6.) 09 Jun 2019 16:36:24
Oh apologies, saw a quote on social media, I presumed it’d been a snippet but didn’t realise it was wrong, and yeah nicolas Pepe should be no1 target. Can take on and runs in behind and cuts in from left onto right foot. makes sense, a player like Moussa who’d attack 6 yard box be good too.

7.) 12 Jun 2019 22:42:53
So much for that. eh?



25 May 2019 20:05:06
There are actually social media journos claiming Sarri to Juve is done with details of the compensation to Chelsea. Ed's what is going on, surely if some truth in this Sarri and Juve would wait u til after Europa league final.

Matt martin

{Ed001's Note - it is certainly not done, Juve have been chasing Pochettino.}

1.) 25 May 2019 20:23:54
Have Chelsea got targets / person in place to take over, hopefully jive get Poch, would be great for them and bad for spurs,

{Ed001's Note - I am sure they will have people in mind just in case.}

2.) 25 May 2019 20:39:03
Always something with Chelsea hey, little unrelated by loads about United almost wrapping up De Ligt. if of loved Chelsea to be in for him but thought he’d made mind up with Barca,

{Ed001's Note - he does not convince me at all. Easy to look a good defender in Holland, but he is slow and positionally I do not like what I see of him.}

3.) 25 May 2019 20:56:20
Strangely Ed001, I agree with you. People rave about him, but apart from charisma and really good leadership qualities I don't see the superstar top class CB there.

Good talent for sure, but if United are offering him 250k or more in wages they're mad. Much better CBs out there in my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - exactly mate, a good leader but he lacks the ability to take that leadership into the Prem I think.}

4.) 25 May 2019 21:20:48
You take maguire over him then ed? We conceded a lot of crosses / goals, Christensen isn’t aggressive enough. Luiz possibly lesser playing time, HM would add some steel next to rudi,

{Ed001's Note - god no he is positionally inept.}

5.) 26 May 2019 08:05:24
I suppose we'll see that soon, Ed, as it does really appear that United will once again blow other clubs out of the water with the fees and wages they offer. Doesn't surprise me either as Raiola loves sending his clients to United apparently.

Though I'm not that bothered with De Ligt going there. I'd be more worried if they got guys like Upamecano, Romagnoli, Tag, Varane etc.



14 May 2019 21:12:46
David ornstein ( reliable regarding arsenal ) said If we can sign players we're interested in zaha and Ryan sessegnon.

Matt martin

1.) 14 May 2019 22:14:46
Sessegnon will go to Sours so not that reliable.

2.) 14 May 2019 23:26:28
If the ban stands then Chelsea will trigger the extension in Giroud's contract and look to recall Batshuayi or Abraham.

If the ban is lifted then we are likely to find out in July leaving it bang in the middle of the transfer window.

Chelsea are very much interested in Coutinho as a potential Hazard replacement. Asensio and Zaha are aalso mentioned.

There is also interest in Cavani for the striker position. PSG looking to sell him due to his recent fall out with Neymar.

Personally I would settle for Coutinho and Cavani. Coutinho is a proven player, he is still young and on form is world class. He is the ideal haaard replacement for me.

3.) 14 May 2019 23:47:20
David Ornstein is of BBC so the source could be reliable but Ryan Sessegnon's interest doesn't make sense.

4.) 15 May 2019 02:21:58
Cavani would go into sane bracket as shevchenko falcao patio and Higuaín, a once world class striker wring end of career,

5.) 15 May 2019 05:49:34
Agree with you Matt, cavani and Coutinho are not the answers,
we have to think long term as well.

And will need a strong defender as priority.
I don't think christensen is there yet and needs more time. Zouma also needs another season on loan, im still not convinced.

would pick costa over cavani
zaha is a good candidate but still raw

hazards replacement will be hard to find . we should work on getting the whole team stronger rathere than look for one player who can make the difference.

RLC will have a next season where we will know if he can be a Lampard for us.

What we need is a Leader . i still can't see a strong candidate in our team at the moment.

6.) 15 May 2019 11:52:40
Coutinho is best as a number 10 we don’t play that so it’s a waste of money. Sabe, Ziyech or Pepe should be our marquee if it’s frozen along with Jovic. Zaha is selfish and not a team player.

7.) 15 May 2019 11:53:01
Cavani is a massive no. Coutinho is in poor form and suits a system mainly as a #10 so a big no. We need young hungry players. Zaha is selfish and all himself.

Jovic, Sane or Pepe for RW, Romagnoli (A Leader for CB) and Chilwell for LB would be my options.

8.) 15 May 2019 17:04:43
Agree, coutinho is a 10 and if we were to change and get a ten why spend double the money that we could get fekir for, we need a player who can play wide and score, Pepe Ziyeck sane, but also a striker, we all want jovic. then a midfielder who can play in a 3 but score goals, Bruno Fernandes, Kai havertz, Van De Beek, someone like that.

9.) 15 May 2019 19:29:26
Unpopular opinion here, but I would actually think Zaha would be a wonderful signing. got to say that I haven't seen Cavani so much the last year, but I really love him as a striker, and really he can't be worse than any of what we've got. Also, I think Coutinho might be a decent signing. None of us really know if Pepe would make it in the PL, but Coutinho has proven so much here.

10.) 15 May 2019 19:56:26
I also think that Zaha would fit really well. He'd have to work hard in the press mind.

11.) 15 May 2019 23:11:20
When talking about a 'lack of leader', can someone answer why David Luiz is never mentioned as a possible. Yes, he can be a bit hot-headed, but he is passionate, committed and, unlike Azpi, is not afraid to voice his concerns on the pitch.

Maybe Bakyoko would be of some use after all,

Matt martin

1.) 20 Aug 2019 10:41:18
I have said this exact thing before now. I think the club should wait till winter before considering the sale of M. Batshuayi, Bakayoko and Zappacosta. I heard Zappacosta is off to Roma on loan, so hoping Bakayoko and Batshuayi will be at the club at least till January.



17 Aug 2019 15:50:49

2.) 18 Aug 2019 08:22:37
2 Goals and a penalty won in his first two matches. I'd certainly say so!



16 Aug 2019 11:40:02
I've been on here and said that I don't think Tammy is good enough for Chelsea. He missed a penalty which isn't really about ability rather than luck / pressure / nerves / bottle. but for apparent Chelsea fans to go on social media and abuse him and send death threats by keyboard clowns is disgusting and embarrassing and as a Chelsea fan / football fan I can't believe how some people can be so stupid and horrible, the poor lad, hopefully he starts v Leicester and silences some of these morons. I view my opinion on here and may come across negative. I wouldn't boo at a game shout abuse and get personal with these players, chin up Tammy!

Matt martin

1.) 16 Aug 2019 12:01:05
The problem is a sickness in society and our game.

Tammy IMO will answer the football critics in the best way and that’s by playing well and scoring goals.

The mindless idiots who use social media to abuse people are to be viewed as pathetic and people at any, football match who shout abuse at anyone are also pathetic scum.

2.) 16 Aug 2019 15:05:41
I'm really happy Lampard has come out and publicly expressed his disgust over these so-called fans. These people aren't Chelsea or football fans, they are just narrow-minded.



15 Aug 2019 09:02:25
It's gutting that we are playing so well but results not been good, albeit 2 games, top teams play bad and win we are the opposite, kante adds so much, Emerson brilliant, Mount kova etc etc but until we get a goalscorer we will struggle, Michy should get s chance imo, offers less in play but more clinical.

Matt martin

1.) 15 Aug 2019 23:56:12
Batshuayi was ‘clinical’ at BVB for 6 months. He’s been anything but at the rest of his loans.



15 Aug 2019 01:23:32

Read Chelsea Will get around or close to £15m for him, that’s brilliant business of true, Zouma Rudiger both better, Christensen would be a lot better if he was bit more aggressive but that £15m can go with the hazard money morata money and go towards strengthen attacking wise end of season,

David luiz scored the winning goal v us in champions league and went absolutely mental ( as he should of ) and now refused to train to get his move, if this is the case I imagine it’s because he knows his not a regular starter under frank with Zouma back and rudiger close.

Vardy has explosive pace and thrives in a counter attacking team, Tammy doesn’t have explosive pace and his strengths of being tall, strong and alive in and around 6 yard box are also 90% of the defenders strengths in Orem league.

Giroud set up 3 clear chances, Mount Kante and Pedro. He could of had 3 assists in 45 min. But either way Michy should get a run out. But also it’s like last year, higuian should start until he does and isn’t good and Giroud should start until he does and isn’t good, lol.

Giroud has done better than Tammy, if anyone should have a chance either starting / bench it’s Giroud and Michy. I’d 100% go with Michy v Norwich just because they will be open and end to end.

Oh right ok, more click bait I’ve fallen fo. Though I saw on sky how chelsea were following the situation as the punishment we received compared to them for the same breaches in signing u18 yo, with the difference that they admitted and complied with fifa investigating. Hope your well ed. What part of the world are you this month.

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what Sky have said nor what "following the situation" means. Manchester City potentially face a serious charge. Other clubs, such as Liverpool, potentially face the same charge as Chelsea and the FA were signed for.}

Can I ask about the chelsea punishment and the Man City punishment with signing of u18’s, is it seen as bit of an outrage what we got compared to them. are chelsea angry about it like reported or is it in fact completely different and a fair punishment regarding both teams,
