Is Ed02's return to the Chelsea page when we enter a transfer ban the ultimate act of irony? It's too well timed not to be.

If so, I have nothing but respect.


{Ed002's Note - It is no problem for me not to bother if it is all about to start again.}

1.) 16 Mar 2019 12:19:21
Don’t think he meant any harm Ed002! Nath has usually been a respectable poster!

2.) 16 Mar 2019 13:35:23
Sorry Ed, it was a well intentioned joke nothing more.



23 Jul 2018 12:20:09
Can any of the eds firm up the Martial to Chelsea gossip?

It sounds like lazy journalism but I like the idea at least.


{Ed001's Note - he has been offered around, I don't know of any interest in him at the price being asked.}

1.) 23 Jul 2018 16:32:45
strange that united apparently blocking a move to Chelsea.

2.) 23 Jul 2018 16:33:03
especially the fact we sold them to mata an matic.

3.) 23 Jul 2018 20:10:52
Thanks ed.

I would be concerned by his attitude anyway.



06 Feb 2018 08:58:18
This site is becoming too poisonous, the team weren't good last night, but the sending off was harsh and everything else was as a result.

Conte needs to be more of a positive influence, and he'll probably go at the end of the season but that's not a reason to slag off all the players, many of whom have been stand up for seasons.


{Ed002's Note - It is the ignorance of the modern day fan Nath. The majority who do nothing but abuse players, the coach and the board know nothing whatsoever about the club or what is going on. It is absolutely laughable and getting more and more embarrassing. They are happy to drag the site down and will go elsewhere after they have been removed from here.}

1.) 06 Feb 2018 09:10:56
Ed02 I agree, albeit your return in the summer might change the emphasis of this site? It used to be excellent. Any chance?

{Ed002's Note - It is not worth it Nath. My explaining what has been going on and what is still going on regarding transfers will simply result in abuse.}

2.) 06 Feb 2018 09:17:39
Okay ed, for what it's worth there's still plenty on the other rumours sites to enjoy.

{Ed002's Note - Good.}

3.) 06 Feb 2018 09:31:01
Nath, I agree that no supporter should be slagging off players (or Ed002) unless that player is obviously not trying. But I don't think the sending off dramatically changed the game last night - we were being overrun by Watford anyway and didn't look as if we had any idea as how to counter them. Babayoko needs to be sidelined for his own sake - his confidence is so obviously shattered that to play him is just extending his nightmare - Bakayoko's evening consisted of 7 touches, 7 times lost possession, and 2 bookings (both harsh by the way but that's Mike Dean for you) .

4.) 06 Feb 2018 09:34:35
Ed002 what is going on at our club

I know you don't want to divulge in transfers but why are we so clueless as to what's going on
Why not tell us is there something major going on or not
I don't want to be rude but you have attacked us on here a couple of times now in the last week
Why not give us mere mortals some insight to what's going on and shut us all up
The site works both ways and could make us more insightful and less negative with snippets of info t.

{Ed002's Note - I have zero interest in explaining what is going on with the club or any other transfer information. The Chelsea page has been completely consumed by the vegetables now, as was evidenced from the trash filling the pages last night - and most of it was actually deleted rather than posted.}

5.) 06 Feb 2018 09:50:20
Fair dos.

6.) 06 Feb 2018 11:39:32
I think as fans we all tend to overreact when results are poor, however I cannot understand why so many fans want Conte out, remember how both Mourinho and Guardiola did last season in the league and how well they are both doing now. That comes from sticking with your managers when things are hard. Football works in cycles and you have to have faith that things will get better. They usually do.

7.) 06 Feb 2018 13:09:56
With all due respect Ed002 and I stand corrected; I feel that fans will continue to be ignorant of what happens at the club but like the board and the coach, fans also want good results. It's not right for any fan to talk bad of the coach or the board when the club is in a situation- but like the coach or board will try to remedy a bad situation at the club: A fan feels he can change the situation by talking (which can sometimes end up hurting the coach or the board) .

The coach, the board and the fans are all trying to protect their happiness but their approach are all different. So I won't blame the fans completely cos all the marathon is to entertain them and when you scratch a man where he doesn't feel itchy, most times they react.

{Ed002's Note - And that may be true but it is not like that on these pages - all of the toxic ignorant morons do no more than troll the site.}

8.) 06 Feb 2018 13:14:18
MDW I tend to agree with you on most things and yes Baka could benefit from a rest. He was poor last night.

But slating Cahill etc is shameful and pointless.

We'll be back, we're still top four and there will be a plan in place.

9.) 06 Feb 2018 14:39:23
Well said Nath and I fully agree about this site being trolled and made toxic. It is obvious who the trolls are as well. Real shame.

10.) 06 Feb 2018 18:12:54
I have read above, however I feel some of the players last night were very poor. Not only in there play but attitude. That being the case we as supporters should be able to be critical
The trouble is people post in anger ie having just watched what can be called an abysmal performance. So they react and maybe go over the top with there posts. But some of the performances last night were nothing short of awful.
Suffice to say players need to look at themselves and possibly have a team meeting and sort it.
The problem is there isn’t a JT or Frank to take hold of them, I think that is part of the problem. They would not have tolerated the last two performances.

11.) 06 Feb 2018 18:13:27
Do we know how long Christianson is out for.

12.) 06 Feb 2018 20:59:40
As frustrated as I was last night and in a lot of performances this season and conte seeming to take dogs at everyone at club. if players knew hat he is staying and they would be cashed in then maybe . maybe things would be better, it’s the cycle of the club and will happen to the next manager and one after.

13.) 07 Feb 2018 02:58:24
Conte is a Genius but like every genius he is a bit mad- Pirlo

Conte is great at building teams and winning titles but when things don't go his ways he becomes bit eccentric.
This has always been his problem in the past. In Juventus he famously quoted " you can't dine in $100 restaurant wearing $10 suit". This was said criticising juventus 's lack of spending. Two days after he parted ways.

Now similar story is playing out at Chelsea. He is disgruntled with mediocre buying of the board. Having said that we all know the spending power of Chelsea is greatly reduced by this so called financial Prudence. The club now clearly want to buy young players cheap and sell on a profit. Hence the bakayoko, Barkley, Emerson etc.

I am following Chelsea since 1999 and can't comment on the era before that. But this Chelsea side is used to winning and I can't fathom the lackluster attitude of players. Losing is fine but not trying to win is .

Squad needs rejuvenation and motivation. I am not sure Conte can do that but if he turns this around then I am sure we will achieve something great this season. A champions league perhaps😀 hey a fan can always wish.

Sorry for the long post.

PS: I am not a troll😂.

14.) 07 Feb 2018 17:56:29
Am I the only one who thinks that Chelsea's January spending was an incredible achievement - to get Barkley, Emerson (who I think we'll all be amazed that he was so cheap) and Giroud for an outlay of approx £40 mill - wow!

15.) 07 Feb 2018 21:10:10
MDW, I totally agree.



30 Jan 2018 19:07:44
Any chance of a sharkopod on the last day? (not Chelsea)


{Ed002's Note - Chances are slim.}

1.) 31 Jan 2018 06:03:01
Okay, thanks anyway.



03 Jan 2018 10:52:48
On the SSN Transfer Talk podcast (02/ 01/ 18) there's a good explanation of both the Cortois and Hazard situations.

Chelsea have offered a big contract to Cortois, it's complicated by his family issues but optimistic for Chelsea.

Hazard not yet discussed contract, there's some miscommunication regarding an extention, but Real may not even move for him.

It's worth a listen for full details.


1.) 04 Jan 2018 10:40:50
Thanks for then heads up on this!

Lothar Matthaus was bullish as heck on ESPN. Spoke about Sane, Dembele, etc.

No mention of CHO whatsoever.

Very positive about Pulisic also.


1.) 18 Jul 2019 13:46:12
I just love that we have Pulisic now. Seems like such a high character guy, in an era where most are entitled divas.

He may not be the most talented guy in the world (though he's really really good), but not many can boast his track record at a mere 20 years of age.

Really looking forward to watching him and Callum on the wings next season.

2.) 18 Jul 2019 17:23:14
Would love to see 4-2-3-1 next year. Kanté at his best in a two the Pulisic, RLC and CHO begins the striker when everyone’s fit.



06 Jul 2019 11:40:47
Okay, so we're all excited about RLC, CHO, James, Mount, Timorri, Abraham's etc but very few mention Chritsienssen.

So with that in mind Ed01, do you have any string opinions on him as a player.

For me, his potential is very high.


{Ed001's Note - I liked him in his season in the Bundesliga, he was excellent and showed massive potential. Since then his confidence has disintegrated and he has not been anything like the same player. There is something there though, someone just has to get the potential turned to actuality.}

1.) 06 Jul 2019 12:34:03
Thanks ed.

I tend to agree that his form relates to confidence.

He's clearly good in possession, but I'm no expert on defensive play. He looks like he reads the game very well, and his tackles are clean and decisive. But I wonder about his strength in the air and concentration.

{Ed001's Note - his physical strength altogether looked his weak link to me, but that is something that can be worked on fairly easily.}

2.) 06 Jul 2019 13:52:12
Indeed, physical strength and confidence are about the only things that become better in my opinion. Though with regards to confidence he started looking better already after Rudiger's injury, when he started more matches.

Christensen is actually pretty good at aerials.

3.) 06 Jul 2019 16:00:05
I can see him continuing to progress, so am excited to see.

AC RLC and (hopefully) CHO in the first team regularly not to mention the rest. And they say that the Chelsea academy is window dressing.

4.) 06 Jul 2019 19:45:41
You guys (Ed001 and Jackson) are on point about Christensen's physical strength- that is what I think is his main if not his only downside. Physical strength is very essential for a central defender.

{Ed001's Note - I do wonder why it has not been addressed to be honest. Work on his power to improve his recovery pace and it would increase his strength too, both very helpful attributes for a centre-back.}



20 Oct 2018 17:41:11
Get over it!

Chelsea DOMINANT today against a tough team with a great record.

Support the team.

Lastly, the fitness coach should be allowed to celebrate. Sarri conceding fault was a dignified move and was classy, but José needs to take a look in the mirror of he's taking offence to someone celebrating (again)


1.) 20 Oct 2018 19:58:15
We have forgotten how bad we were last season.

For gods sake, we are unbeaten and playing some lovely stuff.

If you can’t enjoy the football we are playing so far this season then I would seriously have a look yourself.

Come on my mighty Chelsea.

2.) 20 Oct 2018 20:39:15
I think you two are really taking things the the wrong way totally. Nobody here is criticising the way Chelsea are playing or what position we are in.

We all want Chelsea to win badly and a few are making suggestions about Morata and Willian who need to improve massively. There is no harm in stating the truth. I for sure would like a goal scoring striker at Chelsea and I'm sure the players would. Rudiger mentioned it before the international break.

3.) 20 Oct 2018 23:08:51
We can all have different opinions and that’s fine but i will not have an opinion and declare it as a truth.

I’m in a minority, I like Morata. It’s just an opinion not a truth!

4.) 21 Oct 2018 00:27:41
I like Morata too, but I don"t believe he is suited for premier league.

I think it was a mistake to play him up front today, though I understand why he was played.

Anyway I am not here to blame anyone but come on Alonso you have let the team down today (if I were him I would rather fake the injury and get substitued than cary on playing after you were at fault for theirs first goal)

5.) 21 Oct 2018 07:13:15
That's good on you Tom, however for me 2 or 3 goals since Jan 2018 is pretty much rubbish, those stats are poor for a sttiker and that is a fact mate, his clearly not good enough for the premier league.

It's a results game mate, we understand your a fan and want to be positive always, however there is always rooms for improvement and you can't ignore the deficiencies purely because you want to be positive all the time. Surely you want the team to improve or maybe you don't.

I clearly remember you as one of the posters who wanted Conte to stay, however his gone and we seem to have improved from last year. Hence thebreason our board keep chopping and changing, we always strive to improve.

6.) 21 Oct 2018 15:34:40
Yep, I wanted Conte to stay and because of his reported comments I definitely didn’t want Sarri but within reason, whatever the club does I will continue as a supporter.

As far as Morata is concerned I’m still waiting for the player I think he is, to come out and play.

I remember several players, incluthe likes of Drogba taking time to settle. I remain a fan of the player and I’m convinced he will be successful.



29 Mar 2018 12:59:27
So everyone is convinced Conte is off, but where?

Just my opinion but.

PSG: cannot see him and Neymar happening.

Madrid: more interested in Poch.

Italy: been there since that.

Milan: very dodgy situation, no chance.

Bayern: dark horses but there's a plethora of young German coaches and dealing with their hierarchy will present some similar issues to Marina and Co.

Arsenal: ha ha ha ha ha ha. No.

Inter are happy enough, Allegri will stay put.

I'm confused.


1.) 29 Mar 2018 19:17:24
Neymar wants out of psg anyway so whoever is there won’t make difference, his style would suit psg because even he can play attacking football in the league and still walk it but in Europe although his record isn’t great he will be hard to beat,



15 Jan 2017 11:04:10
A moment for Alonso please.

I've seen him take a load of flack. I have no idea why?

He had a wand of a left foot, works like a horse, and adds height to our team.

Absolute class. A brilliant signing.


1.) 15 Jan 2017 18:26:54
Wand of a left foot? I agree with the other points but despite scoring 2 yesterday his shooting is pretty awful on the whole, he's missed a lot of chances. The first goal was with his right foot too!

2.) 15 Jan 2017 18:45:53
Stick him in a back four and he's probably awful but credit where it's due, he fits the formation really well and having a left footed player on the left side brings so much balance to our play.

3.) 15 Jan 2017 18:55:16
I'll stand by that, check out his free kicks and his long passes / crosses. He finds his man far more than most.

4.) 15 Jan 2017 21:39:21
Well said Nathswindon, the guy is class, his record in our side speaks for itself. How could anyone doubt him? 1 defeat at Spurs and won every other game he has played in! Ake is now good cover for him as well. We probably need a bit of cover on the other side though, Antonio of west ham would be nice to cover or compete with Moses.

Jeez, you lot are intense!

Take a look at his social media, everything says.

'I'm signing for Chelsea, we're just waiting for the right time. '

Matt Law confirms this.

I suspect that the right time will be soon, perhaps in the international break?

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.

I'm pretty sur ethat all of the articles you are reading are speculation. Therefore, who's to say Chelsea won't apply for the ban to be frozen. the window opens soon and I'd not be surprised if Chelsea didn't make the application once everything else is in place (manager / DOF. )

Ed is not about to reassure your worries (with good reason) so just wait until next week before jumping to conclusions.
