Looks like Higuaín will soon be signing and should be available for the Arsenal game.


1.) 17 Jan 2019 17:36:34
Would be good to have him on the bench. Think we'll start with a false 9 either way.

2.) 17 Jan 2019 19:09:55

CHO Pedro and HAZARD.

3.) 17 Jan 2019 20:19:37
weely if he won't sign a new contract why would sarri bother having any time for him? cho.

4.) 17 Jan 2019 21:16:49
Pedro, Hazard and CHO would form our best attack, but think Sarri will favour Willian. Especially as both he and Pedro scored last game. Here is to hoping that Higuain brings back the best of Hazard - we need him scoring like he was at the beginning of the season.



13 Jan 2019 13:23:19
It looks like Michy is going on loan to Monaco until the end of the season.

Hope it goes well Michy.


1.) 14 Jan 2019 10:58:52
Like the guy. Hope he does well.



12 Jan 2019 23:09:52
Looks like Higuain is on his way, according to Sky.

My views are well known but I hope I'm wrong.

Welcome to the Mighty Blues Higuain.




08 Jan 2019 22:55:11
Big and maybe some people will say good news just around the corner lads.

Our squad will look so, so different in the next few days!


1.) 08 Jan 2019 23:13:56
eh? what's that tom? don't leave us hanging like that.

2.) 08 Jan 2019 23:15:31
You just being hopeful or.?

3.) 08 Jan 2019 23:22:45
what u heard?

4.) 08 Jan 2019 23:33:55
Spoke to the guy that told me minimum three out and minimum two big signings this window.

He tells me the two in could now be four.

He told me that Sarri is going to be very happy, so I assume one of them is Higuain. I’m not happy because I want Us to keep Morata.

My only concern is the same guy told me JT was going to sign an extension to his contract.

Don’t shoot the messenger lads.

5.) 08 Jan 2019 23:49:39
I hope you’re referring to Icardi, that’d make any manager happy ;)

I’m looking forward to the coming weeks, thanks for the update Tom!

6.) 09 Jan 2019 00:25:38
I think your guy could be right Tim. Some big transfers are around the corner.

Higuain will make a difference. His clearly disinterested at Milan.

7.) 09 Jan 2019 00:44:05
I agree about Morata, I have no doubt he will turn out to be a great striker, such a confidence player . He makes it look easy scoring with his head . He has the natural goal scorers ability to be in the right place to score goals, but has such a lack of confidence in finishing. I would preserver but he obviously wants out, and maybe not a sarri type player. No doubt another one we will have let go too early .
Going by tonight's reports then I assume it will be Higuain, I suppose he will do a better job in the short term, but long term, someone else in the summer .

8.) 09 Jan 2019 07:53:59
I just don't feel Morata could cut it out at a big club due to his fragile mental state. He is so based on confidence and that is probably because of his lack of game time in his career. As a striker you need to sometimes make something happen out of nothing, the amount of times Costa bailed us out when we won the league under Conte is the benchmark in terms of confidence for a top striker. Confidence is massive.

Morata will probably come good at an average team somewhere in the world where there is no pressure or little of it. Obviously at Chelsea you will headline every week. Everyone want to compare you to Drogba or Torres. I am actually confident that he will come good but he don't have the confidence for a big club and his almost 27 soon. I say he will come good because his career at Chelsea started brilliantly. His movement, headers and scoring with his feet were ok. Surely you can't go from being a hero to zero in terms of goals, he has ability.

Good luck to him for the future. Hope it works out for him whoever he plays for and hopefully we can recoup as much money back as possible.

no not hopefull tom b but wondering wat news you might have pal.



02 Jan 2019 13:04:59
Not sure about this supposed TA transfer.

If he is leaving, I wish him well in his career.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 14:24:59
Who is TA?

2.) 02 Jan 2019 14:54:11
Tammy Abraham i suppose.

3.) 02 Jan 2019 14:57:26

4.) 02 Jan 2019 15:12:58
Never thought he was Chelsea level think he’ll be a very good striker at a lower premier league club or upper championship level.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 15:32:59
Best of luck to him, I do like him but don’t think he’s quite good enough for a top team.

6.) 02 Jan 2019 16:00:11
Tammy Abraham?

7.) 02 Jan 2019 22:33:53
This has got to be a nonsense post - why would we sell for £18m? Why would we sell at all? Nonsense.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 22:34:24
Also, I thought players could only play for 2 teams in a season - he has played for Chels and Villa? Nonsense.

9.) 02 Jan 2019 22:35:35
We’ll never find out now will we as unfortunately we don’t play people who warrant a chance. Instead we play strikers who can’t hit a cows arse with a banjo. Tammy has scored goals consistently and you’re either born a goal scorer or not.
We’re becoming a laughing stock of a club now. I see Juve also want CHO now, meanwhile we’ve signed an American who won’t end up being anywhere near the level of CHO when they both hit their peaks.

I’m writing this whilst watching the game, and yet again Sarriball continues to be boring and non-productive in the attacking phase. I’ll be honest I’m nowhere near impressed as what I thought I would be with Sarri. If plan A doesn’t work he’s got no back up plan. Changes needed at the club!

10.) 02 Jan 2019 23:08:57
I understand the frustrations of posters but let’s keep the faith, look at the positives and hope the second half of the season produces positive results!

I'm told Michy played well tonight as did a couple of our youngsters!




19 Aug 2019 07:50:41
Just a few things about our opposition yesterday.

a) The best team performance against us so far this season.

b) I was impressed with their midfielders. Particularly the way they supported their play across the pitch.

c) One of the better team presses on our defence. They closed down one side of the pitch well. This is something our coaches need to work on as other teams will do the same at our place.

d) what a good user of the ball Schmichael is.




12 Aug 2019 08:06:38
I think I am one of the more positive posters and yes, I still believe we will win the Premiership but all teams require a balance between risk and pragmatism.

I also believe we need a three in front of our back four but the thing that struck me most from yesterday's game was the distance between the lines.

A lot of work required Lamps.




05 Aug 2019 19:06:10
Good luck to Garry Cahill at Palace.

A fantastic servant who gave everything for the club.

His performance in Munich was the stuff of legends.


1.) 05 Aug 2019 20:53:42
Couldn’t agree more Tom. The man won everything in europe and England he possibly could with the club- including an incredible performance in the big one as you mentioned! Best of luck to Gary Cahill and hope he does well in that Palace team and glad he’s still in the peen- far too good to drop down to football league.

2.) 06 Aug 2019 00:34:43
If I were arsenal management I would have snapped him straight away. He is better defender than any they have now.

3.) 06 Aug 2019 11:50:27
I think at this stage in his career he’s an arsenal fans worst nightmare. Ex Chelsea and he’s always had an error or a lapse of concentration in him and the older he gets the less likely he’s going to be able to use pace to get himself out of danger. Fantastic servant for us for many years but he’s definitely not good enough anymore for a side that wants to challenge top 4.



01 Aug 2019 15:44:26
Good luck to Sterling on loan to Wigan, hope it goes as well as the James loan.

Also good luck to Palmer at Bristol. There was a time when I was convinced he would make it into our first team but ho hum!

I would like to think of myself as a balanced fan but Luiz making demands from the club and wanting to go to Arsenal sucks.

He was on course to become something special at our club but any chance of that will disappear as he trundles over to North London.

I can’t think of two many times when we have kept players who want to leave, so I guess we will sell him and keep Tamori in our squad.

Sometimes people are a rush to make comments. I’ve done it myself plenty of times.

Onwards and upwards MY MIGHTY BLUES.

My point is Frankie, it’s NOT the little voice in someone’s head. It’s Sky making out, as usual, it’s got the inside track.

Frankie it is Sky who mentioned the figure of £180k per week.

I personally don’t care what the number is. For me it is just a statement of intent.

I do feel some pragmatism in shape is important over the next few games and as I’ve said before for me, at this stage, it’s about results rather than style.

All about opinions but for me Tammy offered much more than Giroud when he came on against Leicester. Giroud had a shocker!

Tammy has surprised me with his hold up play. It’s improved enormously.

I would have Michy on the bench rather than Giroud and from what I’m told Michy played well last night scoring two but missing another three.

I’m also told Rudiger looked good but apparently the real stars were three youngsters. A forward, the left back and the young centre half.

The next crop of young talent are almost ready lads!

I think in general posters and fans are positive and excited about the Lamps project,
