Hello Ed002, the Athletic are linking us with Haaland.

Is he one of the strikers on Chelsea's list?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Yes but it is very complicated.}


1.) 18 Jan 2021 12:13:32
As always, you were right Ed002.
As per reports, Chelsea are looking at a:

Striker (like Haaland)
CB (like Simakan)
GK (like Donnarumma)
DM (like Rice)

Guess I'll just take your word for it when you say one of Bondswell (if we sign him) or Maatsen will deputise for Chilwell.

{Ed002's Note - RBL have made it pretty clear that they will not look to selling Bondswell who it seems has settled well in Germany.}

Also Simakan is going to RBL. He is replacing Upamecano which is leaving in the summer.


4.) 18 Jan 2021 13:32:17
No way we beat other top clubs you his signature.


5.) 18 Jan 2021 14:54:00
Start again!

Rice, Haaland and Upamecano all done and dusted.

Looking forward to them playing in our Champions League side next season.

That would be dream but one I shall wish for until otherwise notified.


6.) 18 Jan 2021 15:45:35
The same Athletic that told us that Tuchel will have replaced Frank by the Fulham game!


7.) 18 Jan 2021 15:54:06
If Tuchel gets anywhere near our club I will be bitterly disappointed. IMO he is completely overrated.


8.) 18 Jan 2021 19:32:19
Agree Tom mate for once.


9.) 18 Jan 2021 21:15:42
Ed002, any other young LB we have taken an interest in? I heard Alejandro Balde's name being mentioned once.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea need to move three left backs on before anything else.}


10.) 18 Jan 2021 21:37:05
Alonso, Emerson and Baba?


11.) 18 Jan 2021 21:42:36
Almost forgot we still got Baba.


 

 

07 Jan 2021 10:37:25
Ed002, is there a possibility that Olivier Giroud gets a new contract at Chelsea?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea will not offer the contract he wants - they would like him to stay until the summer rather than leave this month.}


1.) 08 Jan 2021 11:04:39
I think there is still a possibility of him leaving in January.

West Ham owners seem to be interested in him a lot and they just sold Haller for 20m£. So they need a new ST.


 

 

13 Dec 2020 22:32:45
Ed002, could you atleast tell us the positions in which Chelsea are looking to strengthen?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Few clubs plan for transfers in January and much will depend on players leaving and sales. There is a desire over the slightly longer term to look to a G and a DM (but preference is to integrate Ampadu) and maybe a S if youngsters are not deemed ready.}


1.) 14 Dec 2020 08:55:59
G meaning goalkeeper right, Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


2.) 14 Dec 2020 11:48:33
Ed002 you are GOAT and plan to integrate ampadu is music to my ears 🙌.


3.) 14 Dec 2020 12:38:20
Nobody should annoy ed 002 again.


 

 

13 Nov 2020 22:40:33
Ed002, are Chelsea interested in Alejandro Balde?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - He was recommended as an option by an ex-Chelsea player as there was a push by English sides to sign 16 and 17 year olds from Europe this summer as there will not be a chance in the future. He was one of many considered but Barcelona will give him a new deal.}


 

 

06 Nov 2020 10:21:38
Ed002, does Kepa have a future at Chelsea?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Not in the longer-term but finding a buyer will not be easy.}


1.) 08 Nov 2020 09:30:39
Will we get our money back if we have the receipt Ed there's a 3 year warranty.


2.) 09 Nov 2020 15:20:50
Hoping it isn’t year after year of loans with OPTION to buy,

Ed002, you mentioned earlier that the club will look to sign a striker if the youngsters are not deemed ready.

Which youngsters have a chance of breaking in? Armando Broja seems the most obvious, but is there anyone else as well?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Not Borja, Ugo, Nunn but the focus is a couple of years away with Soonsup-Bell.}


1.) 17 Jan 2021 10:48:42
Soonsup-Bell is very interesting. One to watch surely.


2.) 17 Jan 2021 23:05:10
Ed002, you didn't mention any names of potential strikers (other than perhaps Ali Akman) . Mind sharing a few?

{Ed002's Note - It would be inappropriate right now.}


 

 

14 Jan 2021 23:30:59
Ed002, despite a number of academy players being integrated into the squad in recent times, none of them have been a GK.

Is there any specific reason for it and could that change in the near future?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Karlo Ziger has been with the CL squad and may be the next you see.}


1.) 15 Jan 2021 21:28:35
I read once that goalkeepers struggle to develop from our youth system because they often don't have much to do. In effect the strength of our team's over the last decade hasn't given them much opportunity. Not sure if that's quite the case, but makes some sense I suppose.


 

 

12 Jan 2021 10:06:50
Ed002, I have read about Chelsea's interest in a few players in the past. Would you be kind enough to confirm if they are true?

1) Juan Musso
2) Ben White
3) Jerome Boateng
4) Dayot Upamecano
5) Ali Akman.

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to start answering questions about the past.}


 

 

02 Jan 2021 09:49:30
From what I understand, these 7 on-loan players have the best chances of getting into the Chelsea squad:

1) Ruben Loftus-Cheek
2) Conor Gallagher
3) Ethan Ampadu
4) Malang Sarr
5) Marc Guehi
6) Ian Maatsen
7) Armando Broja

Ed001 and Ed002, your thoughts?

Roman_199

{Ed001's Note - it is a bit early to say mate, there is still half a season to go. I have to say though, I really can't see RLC doing so, he can't even manage a full 90minutes for Fulham.}


1.) 02 Jan 2021 12:28:40
I think RLC and Ampadu won't make it unfortunately. And for the rest it will be difficult but maybe they'll get a chance to show themselves in preseason.


2.) 03 Jan 2021 02:46:46
Ed mentioned in his sum up that the club want to integrate Malang Sarr, who's been excellent for Porto, with Zouma. I imagine this'll happen next season, at the expense of either Christensen or Rudiger. Makes sense to give him a year in the squad with Thiago Silva still knocking around.

Guehi has probably been the best CB at Championship level this season, a Premier League loan looms for next season.

Never liked the match of Gallagher at WBA, was always going to be difficult for him to express himself there. That tasks made all the more difficult with Big Sam at the helm. But, he's put in some very impressive performances. Possible place in the squad next season, if Jorginho moves on and Gilmour gets a loan.


3.) 03 Jan 2021 06:04:18
Sarr has a 2 Season loan, so he won't come back next season.


 

 

31 Dec 2020 16:18:38
Ed002, would you be free to give us the gift of Chelsea's incoming/ outgoing list that we all have been waiting for? :)

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - When I have time.}

Ed, is your report a bit dated? Since you talked about Ligue 1 getting cancelled which happened last season.

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - No, it is bang up to date.}

What position is he seen at in the long term? CB or LB?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - CB.}

Ed001, from what you have said, Ampadu suits the holding role more while Rice would be a bit more Kante-esque. Right?

Roman_199

{Ed001's Note - a little, yes. Rice can play the holding role, but he would just play it more like the way Liverpool do, where the holding mid has the freedom to get involved in the build up play and break forward when the moment is there. He doesn't just drive forward constantly, he does pick and choose his times. It does restrict him if you do not have someone alongside him who is capable of dropping in to cover. Whereas that would not really be an issue with Ampadu, so yes in that regard he does suit it more. However, if the team is working well together, there should be no problems with Rice playing there.}
