Ed the last update for midfielders was Marquinhos cb / dm
Kessie
De jong
Tchoumeni
Neves

You've kindly updated us recently and rumours today Tchouameni is Madrid bound and we have moved on from The above. Where do our interests lie now with cm / dm, if it leads to abuse then don't worry about answering.

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - From where. You seem to be making stuff up about what I have said. I have zero interest in attracting more abuse from the vegetables here.}


1.) 24 May 2022 21:09:36
Ed calm down, that's a sweeping insult to every chelsea fans.

{Ed002's Note - Only the ones here. There is a guy in Seat G65 who is fine.}

Marquinhos (CB/ RB/ DM) Tuchel provided a list of CB options to Chelsea that he would be interested in signing - and that list included Marquinhos. At the right price and if the player so desires, he will be allowed to leave but he is not top of the list for Chelsea. Real Madrid offer an option as he is a player the coach is keen on, but the club do not have him top of their list. New contract.
Aurelien Tchouameni (DM/ CM) Juventus and Chelsea have all declared an interest in the player and have both held discussions with Monaco. Manchester United could look to him as a Paul Pogba replacement. Borussia Dortmund are interested in upgrading Axel Witsel and have looked at him as have others, such as Liverpool and Manchester City, without declaring an interest. Real Madrid opted for Camavinga and will concentrate on other priorities. Monaco have told clubs that they are not looking to sell. Juve may make an offer in January and would look to including a player in any deal - that could result in an offer from Chelsea and just possibly Real Madrid - who would also look to include a player in any deal. Juve's issue is money which may see them switch their attention to Witsel or Zakaria if Monaco won't accept a player exchange. For Chelsea something can be done.
Gavi (CM) Barcelona will not sell and that has been shared with Manchester City, Chelsea and PSG who enquired. He will get a contract with a Buy Out clause which will make him pretty much untouchable. Still a kiddie.
Ruben Neves (DM/ CM) Wolves would look to get as close to €50M as they can should circumstances dictate Neves is sold, but they certainly don't want to sell and have made clear that he has a long-term contract and there have been no approaches at this time. Mr Mourinho is a huge fan and has tried to take him to three different clubs in the past - and he would, I am sure be interested in taking him to Roma but their focus right now is elsewhere. He has always been seen as an option to replace Matic at Manchester United, but they have other priorities to deal with first and preferred options - although Wolves might see an offer. His agent has been actively offering him around and has spoken with Juventus who are looking to offload players but none that I would expect Wolves to be interested in. The Spurs coach would like him as an upgrade to Sissoko (who has now left) and Ndombele but it is likely both would need to leave as they have added another addition in midfield as well - if Winks were sold an offer is likely. Chelsea have a preference for Tchouameni. Arsenal are likely now out of the picture. Nothing will happen in respect of Chelsea.
Frenkie de Jong (CM/ DM) Tolisso upgrade for Bayern Munich but Barcelona don't want to sell although if a significant offer (perhaps €90M) were made their financial situation would mean they would have to consider it. During discussions between Barcelona and Chelsea, options for a number of players were discussed but Chelsea do not again want protracted negotiations which led nowhere over another player in the summer and they have a preferred option. Manchester City may provide another solution.

Was referring to this update long time ago. Plus a bit about kessie, none seem viable currently, never mind, appreciate the response.

Trubluu; Ed002 is not referring to every Chelsea fan, the vegetables know themselves.

Some German journo who apparently r pretty reliable has said Barcelona are favourites for lewandowski but don't rule out chelsea, what do we think? Short term fix if any truth,

Matt martin

1.) 15 May 2022 10:02:35
He is going to Barcelona. Shame he isn’t coming to us, would have been interesting.


2.) 15 May 2022 10:27:02
We should have bought him this season.


3.) 15 May 2022 11:26:50
If had bought him we wouldn’t have won the World Club Championship.

We should have signed Haaland instead of Lukaku.

Ifs buts and maybes what’s the point.

The vast majority of fans were happy with the squad at the start of the season.

It’s all happened, let’s just put it all behind us and be thankful for what we have achieved.

Is James tavenier a good wing back option, seen he does well in Scotland so who could judge but done well in Europa league,

Why’s this thread unreadable?

{Ed002's Note - Because it is misinformed rubbish that should never have been posted.}


8.) 04 May 2022 10:27:43
Ed2

Chelsea fans have no idea what is happening with the sale of the club therefore without information from our board/ raine or our preferred bidder (if indeed we have one as this has not been confirmed) then the media is the only place fans can source information albeit its probably totally inaccurate.

Can you shed some light on the current situation which would stop us fans from running with what media outlets are telling us.

I thought aftee the ESL issue the fans would have more transparency but this does not seem to be the case and its not just with our club.

Thank you in advance.

{Ed002's Note - Nobody has an obligation to try and explain anything to the fans. They tend not to grasp a lot of things and then that leads to posts that are complete nonsense and simply misinforms people. My understanding is that the process is continuing and a "preferred" bidder identified by Raine Group and the Chelsea Board and Owner have been informed of that. Additionally there is a second bid that Raine have not fully assessed on the table. This is from Jim Ratcliffe who might also have made his pitch directly to the owner who he already knows. And that is it.}


9.) 04 May 2022 11:06:40
Thank you for your quick response Ed, not sure Ratcliffe should even be mentioned in conjuction with the sale as he could not be bothered going through the bidding process in the first place.

What message does that send out about the fairness of the bidding process.

{Ed002's Note - Jim Ratcliffe would be my first choice - he would be the ideal owner.}


10.) 04 May 2022 11:41:23
I see where you're coming from, Bill, but in the end, would it not be most fair for the fans if the ideal owner is chosen? The way Roman has led the club, I trust no one more than him to make that decision.
Sure, it may be unfair for the other bidders, but if you're not the best candidate in life, for whatever it may be, you can never be too dissatisfied about not being chosen.
I am not one to judge who is the best bidder, but Ed02 sure is a better judge than me, and with all due respect, I also believe that he's a better judge than you! :)


11.) 04 May 2022 13:45:29
I would also prefer Ratcliffe and don’t care about fairness to other bidders, if his bid is in the best interests of Chelsea’s long term future .


12.) 04 May 2022 14:29:47
Ah thanks ed002, wasn’t sure if it was a browser issue on my end or something.


 

 

30 Apr 2022 14:45:55
Apparently sir Jim did bypass rains and went to chelsea directly, hopefully he is in romans ear and can get it done, I was all for boahly as he was best of the options, read very good things, I personally prefer the one person owner, very rich, ties to the club, and British, keeping the balance of Premier league clubs owned by British rather than American, I rang the bell for radcliffe as soon as it was up, annoyed he waited to what seems possibly too late but I don't think he would of bid / gone public if he thought there wasn't a chance.

3.) 22 May 2022 19:50:06
Like I normally do. Settle down James, there wasn’t really a curse lol.


4.) 23 May 2022 12:23:36
This is so naive. Lukaku is going nowhere, hopefully Jorgihno too. Werner as well.

20 May 2022 02:22:11
We've won only 8 games at HOME this season, one more to play, our most creative players are chillwell and James and one was out most of season and James had his injuries, we've had rudiger silva alonso get most goals, we have serious serious creativity problems, mount has good numbers havertz was better, ziyech pulsic Cho offer nothing really let's be honest, and with rudi azpi Christensen going, our priorities will be on defence and DM before attackers,

Matt martin

1.) 20 May 2022 08:39:53
Man City and Liverpool have each won 14 home games this season, as a comparison.


2.) 20 May 2022 08:47:46
Said this all year we have no one who can go past people and we have no creative midfielders we have a lot of midfielders that just run a round and like me first boss told me once when I was a young boy
‘Just because you are doing a lot more doesn’t mean you are getting a lot done, don’t confuse movement with progress.


3.) 20 May 2022 08:56:55
Our home form this season is appalling.

Lack of ideas and movement in front of low block teams is a problem for us in comparison to Liverpool and City.

Both have players who rarely stop moving and are willing and comfortable receiving the ball in tight situations.

We have two forwards who struggle with control and a midfield that can be static and rarely see a forward pass. Of course this could all be part of a TT cunning plan but it’s not easy on the eye. ’.


4.) 20 May 2022 09:06:05
Astonishingly poor home form this season. For me this shows that we are absolutely not ready to compete for the top spot.
In my opinion there is a mentality issue in our squad which needs to be addressed.


5.) 20 May 2022 10:00:27
It's frustrating when we have a throw in near the opponents penalty area and 30 seconds later the ball is back with Mendy. I've seen that happen so often in matches.


6.) 20 May 2022 10:01:01
If you look at the stats across the season, creating chances ain’t the problem it’s finishing them. We had another 19 last night, 1 goal!

Lukaku, Pulisic, Ziyech, Odoi, Werner all need replacing. None of them based on this season are good enough or even consistent enough.

You can see why TT calls it a rebuild, we need about 6 players : (.


7.) 20 May 2022 10:38:21
FL recognised that this group could not win the PL. He started to move the players that couldn’t deliver toward the door and gave youth a chance. I agreed with most if not all the moves he made in terms of who should be shifted. The only player he (maybe) got wrong Rudiger? I am prepared to give you a debate on that another day. The football however, was sharp and attacking but they couldn’t defend, he paid the price for dropping out the top 4 and the rest is history. Tuchel tackled that, by steadying the ship won a CL. All good. However, what I do not see is a vision for the future, to go forward, a Tuchel style of play. He has played the midfield to a virtual standstill. The forwards do not move in relation to the position of the ball, or on who is in possession at any one time. The recruitment and tactics for me are random, scattergun, not joined up without rhyme or reason. Chelsea loan Gilmour and Gallagher but borrow Saul? (Btw Billy will never be back, the moment has gone, that for me is a disgrace) They sell Livramento and Guehi but keep Alonso and Dave, they loan Broja, sell TA then play without a 9 for weeks on end, they field that disgrace Kepa in the most bizarre of circumstances (Chelsea are a laughing stock for that nonsense) . Not one area of the forward play has improved individually or as a group under Tomas, indeed all the forwards have got worse. Tomas will now work with a budget lower then his predecessors but roughly the same as fellow managers in the top 6, City apart. The trade off is they won’t bullet you in a heartbeat. But does he have the steel, the oomph the personality the guts to really build a team. I do hope so.


8.) 20 May 2022 12:17:47
Look at how comfortable all the City and Liverpool players look when receiving the ball.

Werner has never had a first touch and Lukaku’s may have slightly improved but not enough for him to bring other players into play. Who gave the green light for those two?

I would suggest that Kovacic is the only player in the side who can carry the ball.

Also, if we can’t find Mount between the lines we are pretty much toothless from midfield.


9.) 20 May 2022 14:08:51
Stephen, you can’t resist harking back to Lampard and criticising Kepa - who isn’t even playing even though Mendy is very poor. Who are the players that FL ushered out of the door other than Tomori, our best young CB. As for TT he isn’t responsible for players who have gone or come in. You are right though about next season if there is a rebuild we need to establish an identifiable style of play and he will be judged by performances and results.


10.) 20 May 2022 17:12:07
Jimbo, If I wanted to hark back to a better time in Chelsea managerial history I could easy go to Jose or Carlo. The reason I mention Frank is that he was the first manager to really deal with the RA era “Chapter 2” . The group minus any of the greats. I am stating that I could see what Lampard was trying to do. He was trying to make room by unloading the disastrous recruitment and clear Cobham out, from memory he pinpointed Zappa, Kepa, Baka, Drinkwater, Batshyui, Emerson, Jorginho, Rudiger and then he got Alonso in his sights due to his behaviour and overall below average performances. This was to clear the way for new players that might actually have a tilt at winning the PL, something Chelsea were getting further away from doing, whilst also trying to improve the playing style of the team. I don’t want to quote Roy Keane but as he so avidly puts it “ before getting good players in you’ve got to get the bad ones out! ”
Now I did happen to agree with everyone of those players being sold on. But that is another debate. and Don’t forget FL played more than a third of the season without Kante, he picked and rotated Christiansen, James, Mount, Gilmour, TA, Werner, Pulisic, with relative success in keeping the players turning over decent performances and growing into playing for a club the stature of Chelsea, he changed selections and formations home and away to suit the opponent coming up, he also signed Mendy, Silva, Havertz, Chillwell, Xiyech, Werner. Four of those started the CL final with two on the bench. I accept that Chelsea couldn’t defend under Frank and he unfortunately but deservedly got sacked. But I honestly do think he had a plan, a vision? Tomas has come in and steadied the ship, got top 4 and won the CL. But he is no nearer the title. My post is posing the question as to whether we all think that Tomas has the vision to rebuild the team. because in the 18 months he has been in charge in terms of playing style, formation changes, nothing has actually happened. If anything the overall style of play is stale and all the forwards seem to be getting worse. But Tomas has had to deal with C.V., and the club sale etc, so fair is fair as they say. Big year coming up. With regard to Kepa? He is the worst keeper in Chelsea and PL history, his performances were utterly wretched, including that recent halfwit cameo role in the league cup final. Imagine turning to that no mark to get you out of a jam? but he was true to what he is, a rank failure.


11.) 20 May 2022 17:27:19
I think we will regret selling Kepa in years to come.

Man Utd have had a few horrors as keepers but in recent years we got spoilt with Carlo, Big Pete and Courtois.

I want TT to carry on winning trophies but I would like to see some football that is a little easier on the eye.

Players leaving this season should be seen as an opportunity on lots of levels.


12.) 20 May 2022 17:50:48
Ha ha, Stephen you really hate Kepa! Kepa is a better all round keeper than Mendy who looks scared of the ball. Did FL make the decisions to buy or get rid of players, I’m not so sure. Will TT make these decisions, if not, who does? You are right about next season if nothing else I would like to see some sort of system or style of play become clear. Obviously, we don’t know who will be in the squad but I would like to see a settled or preferred front three, the constant chopping and changing has cost us this season. As for next season, I don’t think we should set our sights too high. We know who the top two will be, Man U can’t possibly be any worse, Spurs will be stronger if the hang onto Conte and, of course, Newcastle and their money burning a hole in their pockets. If we can get the balance right of the players coming in and the players going out, I think we will be alright.
