Silly season is in full swing, Don Balon reporting that we are interested in signing Bale. Same outlet that stated that a reunion with he and Spurs was imminent.


{Ed002's Note - There is an active discussion with another side but not with Chelsea I am afraid.}

1.) 08 Jan 2020 16:36:06
I was riding it off as nonsense altogether, but it will be interesting to see if he ends up anywhere this window. Thanks for the insight, Ed!

2.) 08 Jan 2020 18:21:12
Another premier league club if I may ask Ed?

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Hi all, I'd just like to get your opinions on our possible January transfers. It look like we'll push to Callum Wilson and possibly for Pulisic (to arrive in the summer? )

What do you all think of this? I think Wilson's pace and genuine strength will be incredibly effective in our system. Pulisic would be interesting. I'm from the states, and while he is far and away our best player, I'm not sure that he will do well with Chelsea.

What do you think, and what other rumors have you heard about?


1.) 18 Dec 2018 16:10:47
Calum Wilson is the perfect January transfer. Fast strong and knows were the goal is, and come summer if we got a big name he would be brilliant back up, 24 and home grown. knows the league, Abraham 3rd choice next year?

2.) 18 Dec 2018 16:20:49
I believe that he is 26, but I still think he is plenty young enough! Do you have an idea of what "big name" you think would come in during the summer? I've been hoping for Icardi for the last few years, but I'm not sure that will ever happen!

3.) 18 Dec 2018 17:53:27
I think we have needs at LB, RW and CF.

Like many others on here i think that Ben Chilwell would be the ideal signing at LB, but I don't thing Leicester will sell him for anything other than a ridiculous price. To be fair, with his new deal, the club seem pretty content with Alonso so we probably won't see much movement here till the summer. I've mentioned him before, and I will mention him again, but Jay Da Silva is having a fantastic season.

Pusilic seems like a fair shout for the RW spot, I'd also like to see a move for Thorgan Hazard who is having a very good season in Germany.

I agree that Wilson would be the ideal signing for the CF position. Could even have the type of season that would eliminate the need for a "big name" signing.

4.) 18 Dec 2018 19:00:05
I’m not sure to be ho eat, I personally like icardi but he isn’t a Sarri type player of Sarri likes the target man who gets in the score sheet. Oscar did won’t be in the game for 75 min but 2 chances could bogey two goals, morata in theory is his type to link play and technically good but mentally he is so weak you have to feel for him. Mitrovic would be another one similar to Wilson for me. Good option but will only upgrade in summer, I honestly don’t know what strikers are about who are top class, the Cavani type except Harry Kane?

5.) 18 Dec 2018 19:22:34
I tend to disagree with your Icardi statement, I think he does well holding the ball up. IMO he's able to be more than a target man, his movement is very good, he's strong and has pace. I think Icardi would not only bring goals, but he would bring a similar scrappy attitude like Costa's, which I think we've been missing.

Remember that Sarri used Mertens and Hazard, who are smaller players, as a #9. But I do remember that he wanted a reunion with Higuain, so maybe he does prefer a big man. Only time will tell!

6.) 18 Dec 2018 19:53:19
J don’t know which Jay Da Silva you’ve been watching but he’s only played less than half their games. He can’t even get in the side ahead of Lloyd Kelly. We need to cut his loan short and send him somewhere else. I like Wilson but the price is a joke why not Vardy? A short term option who’s homegrown until we can find a world class striker. Vardy is a leader too he’s horrible but he’s what we need I’d try for him and Chilwell in a double deal very unlikely but it’s what I’d like to see.

7.) 20 Dec 2018 01:36:04
vardy a good shout fast agressive an finish good player.

8.) 20 Dec 2018 17:09:38
Vardy is 31!



09 Nov 2018 18:01:15
Seeing that we are interested in Denis Suarez from Barca. Does anyone know if this is true or not? Can’t see us having space for another midfielder honestly.


1.) 11 Nov 2018 05:23:27
I read somewhere that Sarri likes him and went for him on more than two occasions when he was at Napoli.



07 Jan 2018 18:31:34
Saw a rumor today about possibly bringing back Thorgan Hazard over the summer. I don't watch much of the German league, has anyone paid attention to his development? Would he be an upgrade to Pedro or Willian?


1.) 07 Jan 2018 20:25:52
This is me just speculating but it might be something that Eden has "demanded" before he signs a new contract

Again, that's me speculating.



27 Dec 2017 18:31:53
Hi eds, hope you're enjoying the holidays. Is there any hint on which teams are most interested in Hazard? Madrid is the obvious, but are there other teams monitoring him? Cheers!


{Ed002's Note - Can't help, sorry.}

1.) 27 Dec 2017 19:44:26
Ed002 any chance you could provide us with some transfer updates. But for a few trolls our page seems to have gone so dull without transfer input. Fair play to the other posters who kept things moving here of late. Tbh the trolls probably ain't even chelsea fans and are probably loving the fact that we get nothing here anymore. Any chance ed2?

{Ed002's Note - Zero chance. Even on Christmas Day I was getting foul abuse.}

2.) 27 Dec 2017 20:09:31
I know u won't say who they are ed02, but are the brain dead morons regular posters on this site, or other lowlife who don't usually post banter about Chelsea, but just take pleasure in writing cowardly abuse at u,

3.) 27 Dec 2017 20:10:50
Hopefully you can block The dickheads that ruin it for The rest of us, but understandable that you don't want to help under these circumstances.

4.) 27 Dec 2017 20:36:18
No worries Ed. Appreciate the quick reply. It would be good if you could somehow get these idiots banned. Because of them dickheads we are not able to maximise our use of the site which is obviously fantastic.

5.) 27 Dec 2017 23:41:05
I think banning has been suggested and maybe even tried before but it’s always going to be ineffective when they can create a new account in about a minute. It baffles me as to why anyone would abuse the Ed’s when they spend time giving us information we couldn’t get elsewhere for free.

6.) 28 Dec 2017 00:34:40
Ed002, let me preface this by saying that the abuse you're on the receiving end of is unneeded, and quite frankly, cowardly. but I don't feel that punishing everyone just because of a select few is the way to go about things. Because of some people's actions, us real supporters who enjoy reading your input are void of any information. Tarring everyone with the same brush is exactly what these abusers want, and they'll continue to abuse, and as such, us genuine supporters are feeling the effects of it. Introducing bans would be quite helpful, and easier for you.

7.) 28 Dec 2017 08:55:26
That's a real shame.

Hi Ed,

I saw on the ..............


{Ed002's Note - Wrong page.}



11 Feb 2020 16:08:25
Hi Ed,

What is your opinion on rail seating/ safe standing in English football? I saw that United put in a request to install safe standing, with Wolves planning to implement safe standing during their stadium revamp. I believe that Spurs have this as well.

Has this been discussed as a possibility for Stamford Bridge? I recall you said that redevelopment may not be possible at this time. I'm interested to hear your thoughts.


{Ed002's Note - As a club Chelsea has been one of the sides that have resisted moves to move any sort of open terracing again - as have the National Football Policing group (I don't recall their correct title). Periodically the question comes up and if the Premier League clubs are not of one voice it means club-by-club applications. Surveys by the clubs usually get pretty much full support and assurances there will be no issues from the fans - but West Ham fans showed with their coin throwing that what they need are cages rather than safe standing. Spurs have stepped away and say it could be used at the new stadium but want to understand "what is safe". Arsenal has reservations and Liverpool have said they would have concerns that it may mean reduced capacity for them with the existing stadium. The giant risk remains the first failure and the impact that would have - which gives the Manchester United idea some good credit in having a test zone so to speak. Manchester City are with Chelsea and don't want to introduce risk at this time.}

1.) 11 Feb 2020 21:52:21
Superb note, Ed002 - many thanks for the insight.

2.) 12 Feb 2020 17:30:50
Brilliant, thanks for that!



03 Feb 2020 18:29:24
Is there an update on when Pogba will be fit? I see that he may be back for their visit to the bridge.

I will be a bit concerned if he and Bruno will be in the midfield together. I don't have the confidence that our midfield can contain the both of them.




15 Dec 2019 17:00:52
I've seen rumors of Ben White from Leeds (on loan from Brighton) . I admittedly don't watch much of the championship, what is the opinion of him? Any truth to these rumors?


1.) 15 Dec 2019 18:05:11
There are three players that have really impressed me at The Bridge this season, Rice, Chillwell and Grealish.



12 Aug 2019 02:45:26
When we see United again, I’m confident that it will be different. Assuming things happen like we expect, Rudiger, Kante, James and CHO will be match fit. RLC likely to be 100% by then too. I think we bossed the match for nearly 70 minutes, and if one of our chances goes in, the game is completely different. Let’s not be too reactionary, KTBFFH.

chelseab, I think that Chiesa is going to be a very good player. Compared to last year, he already matched his goal tally and has 2 more assists in Serie A with 14 less matches played. I genuinely hope that we are one of the English teams that are reportedly "knocking" for his services.

One has to assume that this will be to raise funds for some high profile signings. Personally, I think we should send a cheeky bid to BVB with a Bats plus cash for Sancho (;

GK- Ter Stegen. Has flirted with the idea of moving, might be worth a go. I would be OK with Kepa for another year.

LB- Alex Grimaldo. Younger than Telles, 6 assists this season.

Winger- Sancho, no need to defend that one.

Striker- Lautaro Martinez. Being courted by City and Barcelona, has been wonderful for Conte this season. 10 goals and 3 assists this season. Small, but his pace and movement would do well in this team!

I think that we should wait for more concrete reports from trusted sources before we bombard the Eds with our repetitive questions. We don't want to lose their wisdom again (:

I believe LM is tailor made for Barca, who (I suspect) will be looking to bring in a Suarez replacement. Thank you for the update, Ed!
