Shoutout to olive. Told us Lukaku was coming home weeks ago. Still things can happen but it's looking likely.

So happy we might finally be getting this done. Broke my heart when we matched United bid too late on the Morata season. Should never have let him go imo so will be great to have him back.

1.) 08 Aug 2021 11:22:27
Please just tell us Tchouameni is coming next, after Kounde.

{Ed002's Note - I can’t do that I am afraid.}

2.) 08 Aug 2021 12:34:32
I take it's unlikely then.

3.) 08 Aug 2021 21:19:14
Sorry Ed, my comment was targeted Olive.

4.) 09 Aug 2021 10:01:32
Thanks Standard, I passed on yours and others thanks to Olive.



28 Dec 2020 10:18:09
Costa to replace Giroud in January? Yes please. This team needs some character. Not a fan of the signings of werner or havertz. Should have just signed Sancho, would have been cheaper and more effective.

1.) 28 Dec 2020 11:31:11
How about giving our players a fair chance to shine? Werner has a very rough period right now, sure, but he did start off fine, and has been played out of his natural position. I'm fairly confident he'll turn it around later this season.
I think Havertz played very well just before he got C.V.. We need him in his natural position, too. And he needs time to adjust. I'm very confident we'll get to see a brilliant player in Havertz soon!

2.) 28 Dec 2020 11:47:58
I think Havertz will be a top player for us in years to come. I also think when Werner plays in a slightly different position he will be our top goal scorer over the next five years.

3.) 28 Dec 2020 12:40:05
Shocking post tbh. I have worries about Werner but Havertz will become class once he adjusts exactly like it took Ndombele a year last season for Spurs.

I also remember Joao Felix receiving lots of criticism for Atletico and he’d been one of the best players in La Liga this season.

4.) 28 Dec 2020 13:13:42
Don't think Sancho has scored a goal in the league this season. Can you imagine how much some fans would be getting on his back at Chelsea if he had a return like that this season?

5.) 28 Dec 2020 13:32:23
Honestly there's been so much toxicity on this site and of course on twitter.
And this is what's being posted. Imagine the rubbish the eds must sort out.

6.) 28 Dec 2020 15:00:16
Both Werner and Havertz will be top players there’s no doubt about that (that’s besides the point that Werner is still our top scorer in all competitions despite all the misses) . Chelsea fans will always love Diego Costa but I am guessing he burnt too many bridges and could be cup tied for our Champions league campaign.

7.) 29 Dec 2020 09:02:57
Werner and Havertz will both be brilliant for us.

8.) 29 Dec 2020 10:12:22
Some players simply can not adapt to PL.

9.) 29 Dec 2020 16:04:19
Antibody back at it.

10.) 29 Dec 2020 16:12:21
How is this toxic lads. I obviously support the players but I never agreed with the signings, especially havertz. No idea why we signed him when we had mount. We've been crying for a natural winger and instead spent 140 million on a striker and a midfeilder.

11.) 29 Dec 2020 22:22:06
Standard, your opinion isn’t toxic IMO.

I think Lamps would like to play Mount and Havertz together and would appear he fancies Rice sitting behind them.

That would give us a 4123 formation very similar to the shape Lamps had as a player with us.

I hope it’s all part of a plan.



02 Jul 2020 10:31:22
Transfer plans made simple for the summer?

Sign Onana and sell Kepa

Sign a commanding centre back, (Giminez or skriniar) sell zouma

Sign Havertz, sell Jorginho and Barkley

Willian 2 year contract.

1.) 02 Jul 2020 11:03:45
If only it were that simple Standard. Rather sell Rudi than Zouma at this point to be honest.

2.) 02 Jul 2020 11:51:59
Jorginho not playing is interesting. I wonder what's happened?

Personally he should play in the no.6 role now. I'm starting to think Kante is better in the free no.8 role which is saying a lot about the other midfielders.

3.) 02 Jul 2020 11:54:46
Gimenez I agree with he’s a beast, I want Tagliafico as well though.

4.) 02 Jul 2020 13:40:14
Onana GK
Upamecano CB
Tagliafico or Telles LB.

5.) 02 Jul 2020 14:14:03
People say sign this player and sell that player like this is a video game.

I don't know if fans realise this, but these are actual human beings involved, not some bloody objects.

6.) 02 Jul 2020 14:22:55
Jorginho not playing will start lots of conspiracy theories.

I take your point Roman.

7.) 02 Jul 2020 14:32:41
Oh my goodness.

8.) 02 Jul 2020 15:11:09
Won't be able to sell Kepa unless we're Willing to take a massive loss on him and the board wouldn't do that. If he goes i see it being a loan for a season or two with an option to buy so we can get as much money back as possible. Oblak is the dream but Onana would be a very good 2nd choice. Gimenez would be great and is definitely the type of CB we need. It's a shame Zouma may be the one to be sold to make way for a CB since he's easily the best defensive CB we have.

Tagliafico is my 1st choice LB but since Zouma may be moved and i assume Everton may come in for him if he's available, maybe a swap deal involving Zouma and Digne? . Spurs seem to be the other team that may approach him in the summer so maybe another swap deal with Alderweireld? He'll definitely bring what we lack at the back. Already been said that teams will be looking to do more swap deals in the summer so it can definitely be a possibility.

9.) 02 Jul 2020 23:24:53
Mine is unrealistic to say the least.

But going pure football manager style I’d offer Kepa, Rudiger and Jorginho to Athletico Madrid and wipe some of their Morata money and in exchange ask for Oblak and Gimenez. I’d then buy Jamal Lewis at Norwich as I think he’s got bags of potential and in a good team he could take the next step up. Also take Havertz. Would love to see us go after Lautaro Martinez at Inter maybe one for next year though.

Kepa, Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Bakayoko, baba Rahman, Jorghino, Kennedy, Barkley, Batshuayi and Abraham.

10.) 03 Jul 2020 06:58:35
Emerson or Alonso too.

11.) 03 Jul 2020 10:13:41
Roman, it says made simple lol. Obviously not many of these will happen.



02 Jun 2020 11:59:11
If possible, which were the strikers chelsea are interested in? Can a poster update?

I know of interest in Dembele and werner but that's it. Doesn't look like chelsea will be able to sign a striker.

1.) 02 Jun 2020 12:36:23
There has not been any change to what has been said before.}

2.) 02 Jun 2020 12:57:55
Dembele, Werner option to Giroud but have other options Martinez but fee may put us off or wants Barcelona I’m not sure what, havertz but I’m not sure if his a cam / cf / striker as playing further forward this season, I know Ed’s said we don’t have interest in Thuran Osimhen aubamayeng, I’m sure I remember a long time ago interest in isak, don’t know any more, and there are as ed say/ some “ kiddies “ were keen on,

{Ed002's Note - If you use the search engine it might be easier for you. try searching on Osimhem as an example - although he will likely be heading elsewhere.}



25 Apr 2020 07:33:24
Callum Hudson Odoi doing some recruitment of Sancho! Let's hope.

1.) 25 Apr 2020 09:12:05
Don't think any of that would be necessary. From what Ed002 has told on the sites here it seems like Sancho would gladly join Chelsea if possible. But of course that's only possible if Chelsea can strike a deal with Dortmund and Sancho's agent (agent fees exorbitantly high apparently) .

2.) 25 Apr 2020 17:01:56
Were very rich honestly. I can see United getting him, and him being a top top winner for 10 years. Well worth a high fee.

3.) 26 Apr 2020 12:13:33
As I've said before, would we have paid £100m for Ronaldo or Messi? In hindsight, I think we would have.

Ed what are your thoughts on kai havertz since moving to chelsea? I've been very unimpressed by him for a 90 million pound player. You can see he has the talent but he's a passenger most of the time and just strolls across the pitch in my opinion. Your thoughts?

{Ed001's Note - he does very much play like that, he is not a grafter. Havertz is the kind of player that is wonderful on his day, but on an off day he does not do enough to make up for it. He probably needs a manager like Conte, rather than Tuchel, someone who is hard on him and is on his case to work harder constantly. I am not sure you can get away with a player like him in the English game too often. When you face the likes of Norwich yes, but up against the likes of City you need everyone to put in a shift as well as be able to play. If he can't be made to see that he needs to up his workrate, I think sadly (and I do mean sadly as I enjoy watching him play on the ball) you might be better off moving him on.}

1.) 17 Jan 2022 16:04:22
Standard; please drop the price tag issue and talk about the player, if I must ask, who has impressed in Chelsea’s attack this season?
Besides I still think Havertz performance against Manchester City in UCL final was top notch.

2.) 17 Jan 2022 18:03:28
Obinna, Harvertz is a class player: he is not getting a run of games: none of our attacking players have impressed including Mount. TT needs to stop rotating the front three he needs to make his mind up.



17 Dec 2021 11:44:51
Havent even watched the last few weeks. Very very uninspiring.

We need to look at the scouting. As much if not more money spent than city and we have so many flops, year after year.

Too early for lukaku, im a massive fan of his and think a formation change is neccesary.

Havertz and werner, 80 million and 60 million and in two seasons, 11 premier league goals. Very very poor return from those two.

Ziyech and pulisic. Flashes, but no consistency. don't even get me started on kepa and saul.

Of course, i support the players, but its getting quite ridiculous. Think we need a restructure and a proper DOF.

Cheers, hope everyone has a good christmas.

1.) 17 Dec 2021 14:12:28
Have a good Christmas Standard and let’s all hope for a happy and healthy new year.

2.) 17 Dec 2021 16:33:57
Ziyech and pulisic. Flashes, but no consistency?

can that be said as they been in and out of the team. surley that no consistency too.

3.) 17 Dec 2021 18:10:44
When Pulisic is fully fit (and sadly too often he hasn't been), in team for several games in a row and played in proper position (not LWB) can be one of most effective of our strike force, as he has shown in the past.

Ziyech beginning to get better as gets more game time/ increasing match fitness after also havibng injury problems.

I wouldn't part with either yet.



06 Oct 2021 21:32:55
Bit of a side shout, I think we should seriously consider signing sterling if he's available. he's always played well with an intelligent number 9 and a front free of Lukaku Werner sterling would be incredible. Young, 26, English and an overall quality player. Sterling and rice would be my picks for signings in the summer.

1.) 06 Oct 2021 22:05:19
He would probably cost £100m. I don't think we are interested.

2.) 06 Oct 2021 22:15:36
I seem to remember Ed saying Sterling was available but I also seem to remember him saying we had no interest.

Of course I could have imagined the whole thing!

{Ed002's Note - No you recall well.}

3.) 06 Oct 2021 22:17:06
No thanks to Sterling overrated, I suspect Pep would be happy to let him go for a stash of cash.

4.) 06 Oct 2021 22:33:30
Blimey, maybe I’ve not drunk all the grey cells into oblivion.

Thanks as always Ed for the clarification.

5.) 07 Oct 2021 08:53:02
Standard have always enjoyed your posts like Jackson before he took break but this one is definitely so English biases. Note Sterling will be very expensive for obvious reasons. The obsession about rice us becoming so irritating like he has but right to play for Chelsea.

If it must be English then it has to Bellingham or even Philips Chelsea will be cheaper than Sterling and I know who to choose between the two. Please let us drop this rice obsession here it's boring and irritating now to always mention him even when we never showed serious interest. We are never going to sign rice because there will be a better value for money elsewhere for the amount that will be required to buy him English premium will deter many clubs. united seem to want another company but still don't see value for money in him.

i don't have issues with English players but they are ridiculously expensive and given privileges not given to others who have football qualities. English players are overhyped. Just look at rudigar who's asking for 200k but even odo is on 120k or more, Chilwell etc gets kings sum rudigar is far more important to this team than both.

6.) 07 Oct 2021 12:59:27
Good post ilo, I agree.

7.) 07 Oct 2021 19:19:23
Well said Ilo.



02 Oct 2021 17:42:55
How on earth does Werner miss all these chances? Completely scoffed that finish. Unreal.

1.) 02 Oct 2021 18:19:45
The One disallowed, the world class safe from McCarthy or the winning goal?

2.) 02 Oct 2021 18:39:09
Spot on Matt. Standard mate did you watch the game? Sounds like you have an agenda against Timo slightly he was class today.

3.) 02 Oct 2021 19:04:10
FYI I have huge timo agenda. I’m here to defend him at all costs,

4.) 02 Oct 2021 19:18:29
I thought that today was the best Timo performance in a Chelsea shirt so far.

5.) 02 Oct 2021 19:27:16
He was struggling a little in the first half but in the 2nd half, especially when Mount came on, he really played better.
If we want to play Lukaku and Werner both, they should both play centrally and be in the box. Timo's not very good playing wide.

6.) 02 Oct 2021 19:31:44
A little Harsh Standard mate, for me that was an unreal save. Timo dropped his shoulder brilliantly made space for the shot and perhaps he should have smashed it but the keeper had no right to save it either way. Also he still scored two goals (the first unfairly chalked off)

Let’s stand behind the lads, we are top of the table here .

7.) 02 Oct 2021 19:54:49
Timo isn’t the best wide, but it stretches the defence and we have nobody else who makes runs like him, it’s no coincidence we play better with him than without, and yes he misses to many chances,

8.) 02 Oct 2021 20:49:56
I didn’t see the game today but I really like Timo although I suspect he will go back to Germany in the summer.

9.) 02 Oct 2021 21:12:22
He was good today Jimbo.

As always he worked hard and deserved his goal.

10.) 02 Oct 2021 22:31:44
leave the guy alone! he works his socks off. He first should of counted . that was poor referring. soft foul . was a joke of a decision.

11.) 03 Oct 2021 00:39:48
Apparently Timo has had 16 goals ruled out for offside, VAR etc.

{Ed0666's Note - the surprising thing about that stat is he's had 16 shots on target.

12.) 03 Oct 2021 11:34:16
Ed0666, bit of hard cheese from a Liverpool fan methinks?

{Ed0666's Note - not at all mate. It’s a banter site just having some bantz. Apparently we offered him 10 miilion a year and up to 21 mill in bonuses and he turned us down in the hope Bayern would come and get him. I think the guy just needs a move to rediscover himself. He’s stagnating at chelsea.

13.) 03 Oct 2021 11:38:46
Oh he did play well. But he completely scoffed the shot on the McCarthy save. Let's not be biased lads, the man miss hit it.

I always support Timo, I just don't think he's got the mentality for a football player and needs to go back to Germany for his own career. Misses too many chances, and always scoffs his shots.

14.) 03 Oct 2021 11:40:13
Precisely ed0666. It's crazy how he can never get a good connection with the ball. Would be a fantastic player otherwise.



25 Sep 2021 21:55:56
I do feel for Tammy. More G/ A than Werner and better performances yet could never get in the team over him because he was a big money signing. I suspect we'll be seeing Tammy back, or in red or sky blue in the next 3 years.

1.) 25 Sep 2021 22:17:58
He didn’t have a better G/ A than Werner, Standard, although he did okay fewer games. I hope he dies well in Roja and establish mes himself as a top striker and why not comeback here some day .

2.) 26 Sep 2021 01:06:39
Give up on Tammy for god sake. His no longer a chelsea player.

3.) 26 Sep 2021 09:33:39
Tammy stat peddled in fa cup games and goals when already winning, we were a better team when werner started ahead of Tammy. Maybe Italian football suits Tammy and maybe he’ll come back to prem, would he start for city? United Liverpool? Chelsea?

Jimbo Rudiger plays well in a 4 for Germany and under Sarri. He can definitely play well in a 4, like I suspect he will be doing for Munich next year.

Fantastic player Mendy is. Provijg Himself more every game. I did think the same as you ed14, but this past year his positioning itms top tier as well as his organisation. Playing the ball out he's a little uncomfortable but he's so slouch.

Mendy is a fantastic keeper and Salah is greater than hazard by far. All of this is subjective and I don't understand why people can't respect others opinions lol.
