Hi Ed002 hope you’re doing well- same goes for the other Ed’s and posters on the site and across the other sites if you’re reading!
Just a quick question, no worries if you don’t fancy getting into it.
I saw on the arsenal page you commented on Chelsea potentially helping ease Atletico Madrid’s financial strain- my question is are we interested in one of their players? And who it might be?

Thanks for all the hard work and stay strong everyone.

Saim

{Ed002's Note - No there is no interest in their players.}

Interesting reading on the Man United banter page that Chelsea have agreed to two players arriving this summer. Obviously one being Jorginho who's already arrived and the other I'm assuming is Rugani. Ed002 also said we are continuing talks today regarding a couple of other players, so no need to panic guys! He also said we've agreed to selling three who still remain at the club. I'm assuming one is TBo but the others are anyone's guess! Just hoping it's not Hazard and Kante otherwise I might cry a little.

my take on that.
golovin and jorginho - agreed
higuain and rugani talks
tbo, zouma and boga

no idea why its in my head but I had a nightmare last night and lallana was a Chelsea player hahahah.


2.) 20 Jul 2018 15:23:43
It looks like Chelsea is about to make an official offer of €50m+ for Rugani- with first option in case of a sale belonging to Juventus. Maybe that would do the deal. Who knows if Ed002 means that?


3.) 20 Jul 2018 18:41:55
Courtois and Willian could be going.


4.) 20 Jul 2018 20:02:44
From what we have gotten from the press- Hazard, Willian, Courtois, Kante, Pedro, D. Luiz, Cahill, Bakayoko etc. all have certain degree of question marks over their heads.


5.) 20 Jul 2018 20:05:29
Courtois, williams and hazard are going but higuan and rugani are coming though is painful to see hazard go but the prize I believe will be right.


6.) 20 Jul 2018 20:10:27
Drinkwater Zappacosta boga mushonda Morata Michy Giroud. question marks over the whole squad lol.


7.) 20 Jul 2018 20:20:58
I forgot Drinkwater, Giroud and Zapacosta.


8.) 20 Jul 2018 20:23:05
And Morata- this is becoming needle in a hay sack.


9.) 20 Jul 2018 20:56:13
All we know is Jorginho will not be sold this summer!


10.) 20 Jul 2018 23:30:01
Saim, hahaha. you are funny.

I think at CB we need to push hard for John Stones. We can't allow United to get him before we do. He's already one of the best CBs in the league, he's still very young and he's English! Marquinhos would be good nevertheless. I mentioned Kouyate as a good option for CM but I also like Jackson's suggestion of Xhaka.

He always seems to put in a solid yet unspectacular performance whenever I've seen him play for Monchengladbach and Basel. I know the word unspectacular doesn't sound too appealing but it is something I believe we need right now in midfield, stability and no drama (i. e. Magic with his silly 2nd yellow) .

And I agree on Griezman, he's awesome! Btw I don't know about you guys but I can't wait for Courtois to be back. Begovic has been pretty good but I can't help but feel Thiabaut wouldn't have conceded nearly as many goals whilst he'd have also shored the defence up I think. We've conceded far too many headers this season and I think had we had Courtois in goal this wouldn't have happened, he's such a physical presence!

Saim

1.) 27 Oct 2015 01:46:39
That's a great point about the conceded headers. We've given up a ton this season and I think courtois' best quality is his ability to come for the high ball.


2.) 27 Oct 2015 02:32:09
Why is Stones rated so highly on here. Yes he's a good player but he's showed he's still raw with some of his mistakes this season. Marquinhos and Laporte are both experienced and have had a lot of game time for their age and would both be better options I think. I'd personally like Marquinhos as he reminds me a lot of Carvalho.


3.) 27 Oct 2015 07:42:37
Marquinhos has been playing CL football as well for a couple of seasons now so he's used to high level football. He'd be a very good addition.
And indeed your point on Courtois is valid. Courtois is exceptional at dominating his area and snuffing out high balls and crosses. Hopefully he can return without much problems in December.


4.) 27 Oct 2015 09:35:16
Stones would be my first choice we already have a lack of home grown players plus you don't know would Marquinhos manage in PL. What we need is left back for sure (left footed off course) .


5.) 27 Oct 2015 16:55:12
I think with John Stones you have to watch Everton games week in week out to appreciate him fully. Not only is he a fantastic defender, he is a fantastic player with the ball at his feet. He reminds me of a young Rio Ferdinand ability wise (obviously not personality wise) . I can't say I've seen more than a few games of Laporte so I can't comment on him but I think that whilst Marquinhos looks like a very intelligent footballer, I have concerns that he might be a little lightweight for the Premier League. Again though, I haven't seen too much of him myself.

I've seen a rumour today linking Schurrle with Athletico with Miranda coming to us. Please tell me this isn't true ed

Saim

{Ed018's Note - sounds like some rubbish to me}


1.) This rumour is a joke, Why would you part exchange one of the most promising wingers in the world for an old and average defender?


 

 

07 Jun 2014 17:49:11
Hi Ed, just a question about Mikel. Is it likely he'll be leaving in this window or are the club looking to keep him? I ask because I'm actually a fan of his and think selling him would be a mistake! Cheers

Saim

{Ed002's Note - Yes, John Obi is expected to leave and has been the target of interest from Inter Milan.}


1.) I agree he has been excellent defensively for us if especially in big games (like ECF, against LFC recently etc), if often criticised for slowness or sideways passing when going forward. But if Mikel leaving as well as Lampard and Ramires we will definitely need more than Fabregas as replacement but would guess that all at Stamford Bridge know this. In particular Luiz and/or Ramires were great against City and LFC away, and have not seen enough of Van G. because of his injury to know how well he could do such a job (doesn't seem such an imposing physical presence). Or one of our current Under-21s?

10 years since that magical night in Munich. Watching Drogba’s penalty go in still gives me goosebumps!

1.) 19 May 2022 17:26:42
Best journey home from a match ever and can I also say the people of Munich were very welcoming and understanding.

wat a night the emotions i put my body through that night il never forget.

That Havertz goal was the most I have celebrated since his goal against City in May. What a player he is turning out to be. Beautiful assist and an incredible touch and finish, up the Chels!

Will keep it short and sweet and say what a win! Like many others I feel that blogged to praise Ziyech for his performance, not just the goal but his attitude towards the game and energy levels were great. Given him a lot of criticism over the past two years so it’s only fair to praise him when he deserves it!

Hi Ed002. You mentioned that Chelsea would like to finalise the deal for Tchoumeni from Monaco. Does that mean they’d like him to join the squad in January or would it be a deal for him to move in summer? Have a great day!

Saim

{Ed002's Note - It is not easy to identify when transfers can be completed. I would not expect to see him playing for Chelsea this season.}


1.) 31 Dec 2021 09:51:26
I assume the club will go for a Pulisic-style deal: signed now and loaned back.


2.) 31 Dec 2021 11:09:37
I’m guessing that’s right RJ. At least if it does happen he’ll get a pre season and join from the start.


3.) 31 Dec 2021 16:12:50
Ed002 do you expect kounde to join this season? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot sensibly answer about the timings of transfers.}

Sceltical about any signing from the Bundesligq but Nkunku does look immense.

Awesome thank you Ed! I must admit I forgot about Xavier Mbuyamba, does anyone know how he performed for the development squad this past season?

Don’t want to be too cheeky Ed but may I ask who is on the A list? Assume Gallagher is one but is there any others?

Saim

{Ed002's Note - Levi Colwill, Xavier Mbuyamba (who maybe loaned out), Ian Maatsen, Amando Broja.}

Ed thank you for giving us bits of information in such a confusing and worrying time for us chelsea fans. Your info has made me a little more optimistic about the future that’s for sure! All we can do until this mess is sorted out is to keep the blue flag flying high, don’t let anyone make you feel ashamed for supporting the champions of the world!

Saim

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

Sad to lose him but he is the centre back I would rather lose out of him, Silva, Rudiger and Trev. Just read Newcastle and Man United want to sign Rudiger in the summer, if he leaves for either of them he’ll be making an enormous mistake. Still think he will stay, he’s loved by the fans and can be a real leader for us for years to come!

I’d love to add Sterling to the squad as long as we also add another player like Nkunku or Raphinha. Don’t know why we weren’t looking at Mane if we are going after Sterling though. Ziyech and CHO can leave in my opinion. I’d be tempted to loan Pulisic somewhere to regain confidence and form because he’s one who could come back to haunt us if we sell too soon.

Guehi and Tomori were pretty big errors looking back. Is it true we have a buy back option on either/ both of them?

You’re not the jinx Tom, Tuchel just made a bad team selection today and he was also unfortunate with the injuries (although I know arsenal have their share of injuries too) . The defence was terrible, Christensen isn’t a huge loss but I think it’s evident how much we need Rudi to stay, the man is one of our only leaders in the squad and has been probably top 3 defenders in the world for 18 months now.

Must’ve missed the sanctions currently imposed on the world and European champions! Stay in your lane raver, go banter with some West Ham fans.

I really hope not but also would expect James and Mount to be the Chelsea players least likely to leave of them all. Proper Chels.
