Ed002, any truth to a CHO-Coman swap?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - There is a significant difference in price so there will not be a swap.}


 

 

15 Jul 2021 13:31:25
Ed002, anything on Adama Traore or other RWBs we could be pursuing?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - No.}

Ed002, what are the positions at which Tuchel has asked for signings? Media reports point towards ST, DM, CB and RWB.

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - It doesn't really work like that. He named three CBs he was interested in.}


 

 

12 Jul 2021 19:33:14
Ed002, apologies if it has already been asked, but are we interested in Griezmann?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Not at €45M a year wages.}

That’s insane Ed. No wonder Barcelona are in such a mess.


 

 

12 Jul 2021 02:56:52
Ed002, are Chelsea interested in Gianluca Mancini?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Gianluca Mancini (CB) Roma do not wish to sell but there is clear interest from Inter Milan and his agent has said he has spoken with Juventus and they have shown some "affection" for the player. Prior interest of Everton would appear to have gone.}

Ed001, I had some questions about pre-season friendlies.

1) Is the main objective of friendlies to build player fitness and conditioning or are they just showcase events?

2) Is there an optimal number of pre-season games that a side should play? For instance, Chelsea played 7 pre-season games in 2019 (plus the Super Cup), while this year, it will be 4 games (plus the Super Cup) after one of our matches got cancelled. Will such a low number of games affect our preparedness?

Roman_199

{Ed001's Note - 1. Fitness and conditioning are the main objectives, though some of the events can be about money and building a fanbase in a country or region as well. But the team and manager are focused on getting the players up to speed in terms of fitness and conditioning. A lot of the time they also give managers a chance to look at some new ideas he has or fringe/young players.

2. There is no optimal, as it will vary from year to year and person to person as to what they need. Too few or too many can affect the team, but not so much now as once would have been the case. These days most of the players have a diet and training plan they follow over the holidays and so only need a few weeks training and a couple of games to be back at it. The only time it is likely to really show up as an issue, having too few games I mean, is if you are up against a team early on who have had competitive football and tuned themselves properly. For example, if you take on a team that has already had a run in the Europa League qualifiers to get the players prepared, then it would show. Otherwise, pretty much everyone will be in a similar position this season as the Euros and Copa America interfered with everyone's preparation.

It might even turn out to be an advantage later on, as players are fresher than they usually would be, having played less football. It is very small margins we are talking about, but tiny margins are the difference between winning and losing these days.}

Lovely stuff. Cheers Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome.}


 

 

22 Jul 2021 01:51:26
So, looks like Broja, RLC, Anjorin, Dujon Sterling, Sarr/ Ampadu are the ones who could feature for the first team next season.

Ed002, any thoughts on that?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - If you say.}


 

 

17 Jul 2021 02:10:32
Ed002, I had two questions.

1) Is there a plan for Reece James to be shifted to centre back?

2) Do you have any idea about the players Tuchel will integrate from the loan army yet?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - (1) He can be used there if needed to replace CA. (2) There is no decision on some but many will be sold.}


1.) 17 Jul 2021 10:28:04
Ed002, With you mentioning that many will be sold . is chelsea going to change the way it managed players on their roster as previously they were happy to loan them out rather than to sell them?

{Ed002's Note - No, players will still go on loan and some already have.}


 

 

03 Jul 2021 16:09:05
Ed002, I am seeing rumors about Wayne Hennessey and Jiri Pavlenka? Any truth to those rumors?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Someone at the club would like to add Pavlenka but the issue is game time.}


1.) 03 Jul 2021 23:46:50
Ed002, is he being considered as a Willy Caballero replacement?

{Ed002's Note - There a]has been no decision about the youngsters and an older player.}


 

 

20 Jun 2021 21:23:41
Ed002, are Chelsea interested in?

1) Alfonso Pedrazza
2) James Maddison
3) Caglar Soyuncu.

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Try searching.}

Ed, I suppose all moves for him are off in the short-term after his Achilles injury last night?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - It depends when he will be fit.}

Ed002, have you heard anything on Armando Broja, Malang Sarr, Trevoh Chalobah, Ethan Ampadu and Xavier Mbuyamba with respect to their futures?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - The club is working on making decisions over loan players.}

Ed002, out of curiosity, are there any clubs who do that?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get in to this.}

Ed001, do you think his injury issues would have partly been less were he to stay at Chelsea?

Roman_199

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

Sorry Ed, I phrased it wrong. I meant that you said they were potential outgoings for the club when Lampard was in charge. Has that changed?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - No nothing has changed. There are plenty of potential outgoings this summer.}
