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.



28 Aug 2017 17:45:37
Apparently we have agreed $45 million for Costa to athletico, and loaning him to Everton until January.


1.) 29 Aug 2017 08:34:33
£30 mil. a joke in current market; when willing (! ) he is one of the top five strikers in world and we are weaker without his physical presence up front.

Can anyone explain why there are reports of us getting a 3 window ban? I don't understand why appealing to CAS would result in FIFA adding an extra window.

I'm all for serving the ban, but adding an extra window to our punishment because we appeal seems to be a bit tyrannical.


1.) 05 Jun 2019 21:25:59
Seems stupid to me, papers make out it’s a game show, you can appeal and walk away with a window to sign or in box number two lose appeal and be hit with extra window ban.
From what I’ve seen ueafa have been well over the top and unfair to us, I can’t see why we wouldn’t appeal and have the chance to clear our name and/ or at least give us a window to add prepare,

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with UEFA.}

2.) 05 Jun 2019 21:38:27
*fifa, is there anything you can say Ed. Risk of additional window ban seems strange if appealed, do you think CFC are guilty and if so treated fairly, we all speculate which must frustrate you as none of us seem to grasp what’s happening, with the like of hazard etc on way out should we be worried?

{Ed002's Note - I am not keen to share anything.}

3.) 06 Jun 2019 07:04:03

{Ed002's Note - We don't need some foul brain dead piece of trash like you posting on this page.}

4.) 06 Jun 2019 14:19:12
Hats of to you Ed002.

5.) 06 Jun 2019 15:08:15
I assume an extension to the initial ban imposed by F. I. F. A would be issued by C. A. S themselves. I guess this would be due to them deeming Chelsea's appeal frivolous.
It's a ridiculous thing to be able to impose but I think that might be what Matt Law is referring to.


6.) 06 Jun 2019 19:51:35
There's president for CAS freezing similar bans. And ed01 has implied that we are being treated poorly. So I think we will likely get a freeze (assuming we want one)



02 Jun 2019 19:53:39
Wonder if Juve will be tempted to go for Poch after spurs’ loss. Just hoping, I really don’t want Sarri to go!


{Ed001's Note - they already tried to get him. So you mean will they try again.}

1.) 02 Jun 2019 21:31:50
If he’s told the club he doesn’t want to Be there I wouldn’t let him through front door, simple. we move on.

2.) 02 Jun 2019 22:24:40
Imagine Juve try one last time, poch has decided that actually it’s the right time and expresses his desire to move to Turin, Sarri then after telling Chelsea he doesn’t want to be in charge and Juve not wanting him is stuck at chelsea with a transfer ban and hazard gone, lol.

3.) 02 Jun 2019 22:55:25
Check the Spurs page.

4.) 02 Jun 2019 23:51:38
wishful thinking is all!

5.) 03 Jun 2019 00:09:31
Ed002's Note - (a) A third party working on behalf of Juventus has tried to see if it would be possible to recruit him but my gut feeling is that Levy will block it by continuing to make outrageous financial demands - and that could upset Pochettino who will have seen all of the jobs he could be interested in pass him by as Juventus will recruit from elsewhere



31 May 2019 21:41:34
Reports saying that Sarri has permission from Chelsea to leave this summer, according to Alfredo Pedulla.

Massive blow if true, turbulent but successful season.




30 May 2019 15:28:29
What a way to end the season, happy for the lads and for the boss. Very sad to see Eden go, but I'm glad he went out with a trophy. We've been spoiled to see and benefit from his development over the last 7 years.

However I think I'd like stress how our initial treatment of Pulisic should be. He's young, and the expectations of him being Eden's immediate heir could prove to be detrimental to his development.

He has the confidence and the composure to be a star for us. I think that if we give him the time, which we notoriously don't do for non-academy players, he will come good. He and CHO could be a dangerous winger combination, and I'm excited to watch them play next season!


1.) 30 May 2019 16:49:20
Pulisic wouldn't be Hazard's heir it'll be CHO for me, Pulisic will play in that RW position and CHO will get the LW as well as getting the #10 shirt. I'm very excited to see them next season but as you said we need to patient with them both and not have too high expectations of them in their first season together. It's why i really hope we do appeal to CAS, we need to replace Hazards impact and i don't expect either CHO or Pulisic doing that yet. Getting a top ST would help take a lot of pressure off their shoulders.

2.) 30 May 2019 17:32:47
I agree that CHO will be Eden's replacement, but pundits and other fans assume that Pulisic is the replacement. Unfortunately, we will be hearing Hazard-Pulisic comparisons next season and seasons after.

I think if the ban is frozen, we should push hard for Jovic. He, Tammy and Giroud could be one of our better cohort of front men!



17 May 2019 18:00:52
Always felt sorry for Dave, seems like he never got a fair shot in the spainish national team.


1.) 18 May 2019 16:30:13
Not as good as Carvajal in terms of an all round better RB in fairness, great defensively but not going forward.

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 😉.

I really enjoy hearing the different perspectives and I anxious to see what the true outcome will be. Ominous times ahead, but I think we'll manage. For all we know, this ban could totally restructure the club for the better!

Obinna, if we successfully get the ban frozen, I think we will make a strong push for 2-3 signings to revamp our team. I fully believe that we have our targets identified and have held informal talks if the expectation is to buy during the CAS investigation. If I'm wrong, which I very well could be, then I think the club wants to get the ban over with ASAP.

Matt, I am not sure how the request to suspend the ban works. I don't think that there is any way that we get through this without a 2 window punishment. I think it'll be up to the club when we serve it however (serve now or after the appeal) . I still find it a bit odd that we can sign players younger than 16, which is probably what got us in this mess in the first place!

What is the source of us appealing to CAS? I feel like we are just going to take the ban, but this could change a lot if we did appeal.

We could be spend happy and target players like Icardi, Pepe etc. It could also signal a change of heart with our decision to back Sarri, meaning that he may opt to stay instead of heading to Juve. It could also hint that a manager like Allegri is incoming rather than super Frank.

Just feel like an appeal to CAS is opposite of everything I've read in the last weeks and could potentially implicate us having some major major news upcoming. I apologize for being skeptical Obinna (:

If Conte and Inter want him out, and other teams are staying away, could be a relatively smooth process to get him. Think that, beside the baggage, he would be a massive addition to our squad.

But with the ban, we won't be able to pursue him. Think he'll stay in Italy regardless.

Wouldn't be shocked to see that it's yet another Achilles injury. Regardless, let's hope he recovers soon.

Apparently we have not applied to freeze the ban in the mean time.
