This is probably just wishful thinking on behalf of the sender and I personally hope it's not true but I've just been messaged by a mate who says there is a strong rumour of a 9am board meeting being called. My bet would be that this is just normal procedure and people are making 2+2=5.

Tom

Hopefully it equals 4, this cannot continue with a toxic atmosphere at the Bridge, it just will not help with player confidence.

I wanted Poch to succeed and I believed he was the right person to guide these youngsters but his tactics, substitutions and him coming out stating his job is not safe suggests that he feels his time is up and maybe the players know it as well.

I'm sure TS's wife also does not help matters and I won't be sorry to see her ho at the end of the season.

Simon Johnson on talksport this morning says it's being reported in Argentina that Enzo has a serious groin problem that may require surgery.

Obviously he wasn't well last night but if true about his ongoing groin injury, it would explain a lot about his recent performances.

And also Tom, we have yet another injury to add to our long list.


2.) 21 Dec 2023 09:09:10
Yes have read these reports and would ecxplain both his drop in form and why the poor lad was in tears when came off on Tuesday night. So if true it's - and I also don't know what the prognosis would be if it is - this is wretched news for the player and for CFC. The club's injury woes are truly dreadful.

Does antone have any update on when Lavia might be expected to make his debut or CC likely to be back from his long injury?


3.) 21 Dec 2023 15:09:40
JBS, the same guy who told me about Nkunku coming back slightly earlier than expected told me Lavia will be fit to play early January. So about two weeks.


4.) 21 Dec 2023 18:14:56
Thanks Tom might be good news then about Lavia.

We will have to wait and see about Enzo but most treatments of his kind of injury if reported accurately take time with or without surgery. Would be months rather than weeks it seems.

A West Ham supporting mate tells me they are looking to loan Lukaku.

Would be interesting if true!

I'd call it desperation not interesting.


2.) 23 Aug 2023 07:20:23
RD, I told him he was a very misunderstood player with lots of talent.

I like the bloke and I didn’t want to burst his balloon. Anyway, I can’t see it happening.


3.) 23 Aug 2023 10:43:22
The club's stance is there will be no loan deals for Lukaku.

If unsold when the window closes, they are looking to Saudi's to strike a deal.


4.) 23 Aug 2023 11:04:23
Bill, I understood it to be their “preferred” route and while I personally can’t see a loan happening, we surely can never say “never”?

Little whisper for Bradley Barcola, whoever he is?

I'm sure I've seen his name mentioned before, probably on this site.

TomB

{Ed002's Note - Bradley Barcola (F/W) Having a very good season but should stay where he is as a move may see him pushed on to the bench. Has seen scouts from numerous Premier League and Bundesliga clubs to watch him but taking him now to play in England would likely mean he would need to be loaned out out for a couple of years before he could obtain a Work Permit unless someone pays well over the odds. Manchester City and Chelsea may offer him an option. PSG would take him as cover only. Riems may offer an option.}


1.) 21 Aug 2023 21:22:54
Thanks for the info Ed.

{Ed002's Note - You are welcome.}

For all of those interested in transfer dealings. Ed02 has given a very full summary of the potential transfer interests for many clubs on the Man Utd site.

Have a good one lads and looking forward to catching up soon.

COME on MY MIGHTY BLUES.

Just home from the match.

My negatives from the game. 1) Mudryk continually losing the ball left Cucarella exposed far too often. 2) The penalty fiasco has been dealt with by Poch. 3) Poch could have made some substitutions much earlier.

Obviously Palmer MOM. What a class player this lad is. The bloke next to said he has now scored more Chelsea goals than Havertz.

Jackson was a real handful throughout the game. Two assists and a goal and he gave the Everton CH's a torrid time.

CG gave a very assured and disciplined performance as a DM.

Noni was always willing to take on his man and caused them all sorts of problems.

I don't see Everton often (thankfully) but I have read suggestions that we should to sign Onana. Well tonight Caicedo had him totally in his pocket and it was no surprise that he was hooked at HT. For me it was Caicedo's best performance in a Chelsea shirt.

So pleased with the result and performance and I can now have my treatment with a smile on my face.

TomB

Caicedo immense. Regarding havertz, never wanted to say it like this cuz he was a chelsea player but he was absolutely rubbish for chelsea. lol.

I now wish I hadn't started this. Apparently it's too early for the West Ham game tickets to go on the resale site.

The spurs tickets on now on sale.

TomB

 

 

15 Apr 2024 12:36:53
Lads I'm so sorry, my son will be putting bothe the Spurs and West Ham tickets up for sale in the next few mins.

Good luck and sorry for the short notice.

TomB

 

 

15 Apr 2024 12:25:37
I have just received the good news that from tomorrow I can continue with my treatment.

So, tonight could well be my last game at the bridge for sometime. I will certainly be missing the semi final, Spurs and West Ham games.

I will be putting our tickets for both games on the CFC official re-sale site. I know some of you have declared an interest in buying tickets so I will give you 24 hours notice when the MH upper tickets are going on the site.

Please Chelsea send me away tonight with a good performance and hopefully a win.

COME on MY MIGHTY BLUES.

TomB

1.) 15 Apr 2024 13:19:25
All the best with your treatment Tom.


2.) 15 Apr 2024 14:59:37
Thanks Bill that’s very kind. I’m hoping to be firing on all cylinders in plenty of time to see us pick up this seasons FA Cup.

I can’t see any choice but CG playing as a DM tonight if Enzo is injured/ sick.

That’s a shame but at least we are not signing Rashford or Bruno Fernandez. So happy days!

RBD, on the few times he has played this season he has contributed a lot to our attacking play. Like you I rate him highly and I see him as an important player for us for seasons to come.

I thought it was a very average performance by Mudryk who constantly left Cucarella exposed by losing the ball or just not being strong in the challenge.

Poch in his press conference said the players know who takes the penalties and it’s Palmer. He was very angry about a situation that was agreed pre match. He expressed his anger in the dressing room post match.

Hope that is the last time that happens.

Ed, I said for “me” the main measurement is
winning trophies. Other fans clubs and commentators can choose any other criteria they like to measure success.

Of course they can be well run. I guess it depends on how you measure success. I choose to measure it by the winning of trophies. Other fans might well see staying in a division as success.

TomB

{Ed001's Note - you said the main measurement is trophies, but small clubs can't do that can they? That is a ridiculous assertion as the trophies are mostly being picked up by a bunch of cheats who buy the trophies, leaving nothing for actual well run clubs to win anyway.}
