Ed 001/ 2
Have you any idea why the directors of Juve and Bruce Buck met today in a hotel in Baku?
Seems a very public place to be discussing Sarri.
Thanks
T.

Turvey

{Ed001's Note - because that is where Chelsea are playing.}


1.) 29 May 2019 19:31:54
Great reply Ed001 😂😂😂😂.

{Ed001's Note - thanks. It seemed fairly obvious though to be honest.}


2.) 29 May 2019 21:01:52
So no connection to Sarri then?

{Ed001's Note - you asked why they were meeting there and I answered your question.}


3.) 30 May 2019 10:36:24
A supplementary question - Do you think the meeting involved a discussion about Sarri moving to Juve?

{Ed001's Note - I am sure they would have been preparing for the possibility that they do not get their first choice Pochettino, yes. Though I very much doubt they will want to act right now, as they will want to see what happens at the weekend. Dealing with Levy is hard work, but it might be made easier by Poch, if he looks to move on.}


4.) 30 May 2019 11:21:59
That is what I thought but just a tad surprised Buck would choose to meet in such a public location before such a big match for the club.
They could have been talking about just players of course or even the weather!
If Sarri does go he will want Jorghino to follow .


5.) 30 May 2019 13:18:10
Taking over at what is the best and richest club in their country - sounds like a job for Pep.


6.) 30 May 2019 17:31:41
They may also need to discuss Higuain.


7.) 31 May 2019 10:22:04
Hopefully not.

Ed 002
Would I be right in thinking that Real Madrid are yet to agree a fee with Chelsea for the transfer of Eden Hazard?
Thanks.
T.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - I am not interested in providing blow-by-blow updates - but there was no agreement as of yesterday lunchtime.}


1.) 15 May 2019 09:08:22
Tks so much for the update Ed!


2.) 15 May 2019 20:50:19
Thanks Ed002 much appreciated.

Ed 002
A few questions which I would appreciate your thoughts on.

1.Do you expect Sarri to be the manager next season.
2.Do you think Roman will sell the club this year?
Many thanks.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - The opinion here is I know nothing, get everything I have ever said from Twitter and cause all of the problems with the vegetables. There is zero point in me saying anything.}


1.) 17 Apr 2019 23:00:57
ed please don't stop answering here, you are appreciated by many here and your info is helping us a lot and we thankyou for everything, hope idiots don't ruin it for the ones who enjoy and want to hear what you have to say and info you give 👏.

{Ed002's Note - We can try again next year.}


2.) 17 Apr 2019 23:27:57
Sorry that people think this way Ed, can say for the majority of the users here we really appreciate your efforts and input into the page, frustrating some people keep trying to ruin it for everyone else again. Would be shame to lose you mate but if i had to keep deleting posts everyday i'd lose interest as well.


3.) 18 Apr 2019 02:52:16
The Chelsea page misses out once again. Final post for a bit.


4.) 18 Apr 2019 08:18:49
Yup we're missing out. Shame, as on the United page you can see another great overview of their targets and players looking to leave etc.

But it is what it is. We'll have to wait for stuff to actually happen to know what's going on. Either that or we can believe idiots like Duncan Castles etc But I'd rather not know than believe journalists like him.

Shame, Ed. But hope you're doing well :)


5.) 18 Apr 2019 13:23:51
Well whose doing it then? Surely it’s not the regular posters on this page is it?


6.) 18 Apr 2019 14:54:57
Doesn't make a difference if it's regulars or not. The fact the MODs have to read it, is enough.

If it was me, I'd be doing the same, keeping the info to myself to save from having to read crap.


7.) 18 Apr 2019 19:21:45
I don't even get to see these abusive posts and I'm sick of them. Getting me bored of this page too. I'm sorry for the abuse you receive ed. No one should have to deal with any.

Ed 002
Would you know if the club intend appointing a new Sporting Director any time soon?
Thanks.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer about timescales but they have continued to consider three (realistically two) good options.}


1.) 05 Mar 2019 14:06:44
Would it be possible to say who they are Ed 002?
I am also puzzled why it has taken so long to replace Emenalo do you have any insight into this?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get in to that, particularly when one is employed by another side - it will lead to the Chelsea fans trashing people they know nothing about again. It has taken a long time as the club want the right person and the first person offered the job was not interested.}


2.) 05 Mar 2019 14:26:10
Thanks Ed 002
I am just delighted that they are being so diligent .
But the sooner we have a senior football person involved in our transfer policy the better .


3.) 05 Mar 2019 17:45:28
Good day Ed002.Do you think that the candidates are good ones and how do you think once one is appointed will this affect the club.

{Ed002's Note - 2 are certainly. The other not. I would not expect to see any significant change.}


4.) 05 Mar 2019 18:31:56
Thank you Ed.


5.) 05 Mar 2019 21:44:47
Would ballack be 1 of the 2 ed.


6.) 06 Mar 2019 02:12:46
I’d assume Monchi and Ocampos would be two hopefully I’d like it to be Ballack though.


 

 

01 Nov 2018 14:12:09
Eds
A few italian outlets are claiming we are interested in Milans Suso maybe in the New Year which seems a bit unlikely.
Any idea if this is true and do you think he has improved sufficiently since his time at Liverpool to cut it in the PL?
Many thanks.

Turvey

{Ed001's Note - the actual facts are that there has been scouts from Chelsea at a couple of Milan games and the Italian press have decided it was for Suso. I don't know how true it is but Sarri does like him and he plays on the right side, so it would make sense.

As for improving to cut it in the PL, he was good enough, it was Rodgers that was an idiot and ignored him. He has a lovely left peg on him and loved to get stuck in while at Liverpool, not sure how that has changed in Italy but he didn't need to improve, he just needed a manager that gave him a chance. Personally I think he should never have been let go and should have been given more chances. I really liked him at Liverpool, he was incredibly poorly managed.}


1.) 01 Nov 2018 14:28:32
Thanks for that insightful reply Ed 001 much appreciated.
If the £34m euro buy out clause is correct it sounds like a sensible target.

{Ed001's Note - if true he would be a bargain in the current climate. A good manager like Sarri would have him ripping up the Prem with his delivery. His problem was always his size counted against him - he is short and so he was not the typical Prem player. I am not sure about the clauses though, or if it would even be a buyout.}


2.) 01 Nov 2018 14:45:46
Very different these days with the Silvas proving able to cope at City.
The style of play does help them considerably however .
I am delighted to see Sarri improving the younger players like Barclay and RLC .

{Ed001's Note - the problem was Rodgers looked at him as small and weak because he was small. The kid would run around getting stuck in and winning tackles and still Rodgers would rule him out for being small. It was ridiculous.}


3.) 01 Nov 2018 17:05:52
Ed001; you really do rate Suso- He constantly attacks and can press quite a lot too. The player that I want to ask you about is Pulisic, Is Borussia Dortmund looking to sell him in the winter or come next summer? And is Chelsea interested in him?

{Ed001's Note - I like Suso, he was a really nice lad at Liverpool. Pulisic is not one Dortmund are looking to sell right now, though they could probably be tempted by a huge fee or if the lad decides it is time for him to move on.}


4.) 01 Nov 2018 18:00:07
Thanks for the reply.

{Ed001's Note - welcome and Ed002 tells me Suso's release clause has expired during the summer so Milan are likely to look for big money for him as they have a lot of rebuilding they intend to do.}


5.) 01 Nov 2018 18:54:22
I get feeling that they might not get more £45m for him. Thanks to Ed002 too.


6.) 01 Nov 2018 18:58:10
From little I’ve seen I like Suso. insigne, depay Pulisic Suso Zaha asensio, anyone really with the instinct to give and go and run in behind, We need movement and that end product, with Sarri front 3 theere more RF then RW ( imo )


7.) 01 Nov 2018 22:50:52
Funny ed001, I remember you and I having a discussion about suso a couple of years ago, we and a couple overs seemed the only people to rate suso. he’s got his plaudits now after playing for Milan. Great player.

{Ed001's Note - lots of people tend to prefer physical players, ones that look big, strong and fast, rather than players like him who are more technical.}


8.) 02 Nov 2018 16:44:45
And that notion has lead to a lot of teams missing out on good players whom they- earlier in their careers thought was lightweight.

Ed 002
Reports are suggesting that CAS will not hear Chelseas submissions until after the sumner transfer window has closed.
Any truth in this?
Thanks.
T.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - I would say it will typically take four months, sometimes five.}


1.) 12 Jun 2019 17:36:35
And we have not appealed for it to be frozen like other teams have had done in past?


2.) 12 Jun 2019 17:46:36
So barring an unusual turn of events that rules out any transfers this summer Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Ok.}


3.) 12 Jun 2019 18:12:41
I don't have a clue Ed002 . Do you still think its possible we could make some signings?
Thanks.
T.

{Ed002's Note - I am not interested in getting dragged in to this.}


4.) 12 Jun 2019 18:42:09
I’d of thought the ban would be frozen until result of appeal, happened to other clubs,


5.) 12 Jun 2019 20:29:39
I’m no longer bothered about any potential signings.

My hope and information was we were likely to sign a top CF but I think there has been a change of plan.

I think we may well start with Giroud, Abraham and Michy. I was told that Pusilic and Michy played together at Dortmund but I have no idea if they did or if it was a successful partnership.

Maybe a fellow poster can let’s us know if this is factual?


6.) 12 Jun 2019 22:07:36
I think they did yeah. Not sure if Michy is thought of that highly by the club though? Anyone know any more about that?

Seeing as it seems to not be happening now and due to the unforeseen circumstances (I think most were thinking the ban would be frozen) would you tell us who you heard the club was interested in Tom? I’d like to hear who we are targeting, see what sort of player they are looking at for that spot.


7.) 13 Jun 2019 08:36:31
Let's just assume we're not buying this summer :)

You'll sleep better not worrying about it!


8.) 13 Jun 2019 11:34:48
I think you're all jumping the gun.

The window opens in July 1st. I'd wait until then until you jump to any conclusions.

Chelsea can still apply for a freeze. Written submissions are needed that's all.

I'd also ignore click bait stories preying on desperate fans.


9.) 13 Jun 2019 12:55:23
Come on lads, help us out. Was the Pusilic, Michy playing relationship at Dortmund productive?


10.) 13 Jun 2019 18:07:07
I'm not sure about the "Pusilic and Michy playing relationship" but Bats scored 9 goals in 14 games for Dortmund, not too shabby.


11.) 13 Jun 2019 19:09:37
Like it Blu. Thanks for the info.

Do you have any idea what Cech role would be at the club were he to join?
Thanks

No problem thanks for responding Ed 001.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate, sorry I was not able to help.}


 

 

09 Jun 2019 09:31:08
Ed 001/ 002
Any developments on the managerial front?
I am guessing nothing will be announced until after Cech is officially appointed.
Thanks.
T.

Turvey

{Ed002's Note - No, there is a tentative list of options and that it is.}


1.) 09 Jun 2019 10:39:14
Thanks Ed 002.
Do you see Cech replacing Emenalos role at the club or having more influence on the clubs long term football strategy?
More like Bayern for example.
Thanks
T.

{Ed002's Note - It is neither - I am not sure what you mean about Bayern.}


2.) 09 Jun 2019 11:47:04
What will Cech’s role likely entail Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get involved with that.}


3.) 09 Jun 2019 12:42:32
I don't see why people are excited about Cech incoming, he likely will act as Roman's eyes and ears at ground level and report as fit - to avoid player power and direct contact between players/ head coach and Owner.

With Roman's inability to work in the UK, its vital that he has someone whom he trusts and understands the inner workings of a dressing room to report facts, not opinions on how the head coach is performing.

Quite simply Marina does the negotiations for all financial aspects of the playing staff and this I would assume is unlikely to change and for good reason.

He will probably take a seat on the 'transfer committee' but only as a footballing voice, but they also have agents that they have worked with for years (Kia Joorabchian, Jorge Mendes etc) who are quite well informed about abilities of potential players.

Cech's role will largely be inconsequential from a fans perspective IMO.


4.) 09 Jun 2019 21:13:37
From what I have read Cech will be more of a liaison between the head coach and the board. Not sure how much say on transfers he will have. On a side note it really bothers me that Chelsea get advice from agents for which players to sign-what possible reason could an agent have to suggest Chelsea sign a player other than that they are a good player that would improve the Chelsea squad?

Any news on the appeal in the last few days?
Thanks

Turvey

1.) 04 Jun 2019 10:13:39
Someone said we might be talking to the FA as we followed an approved procedure. Does that make any sense?


 

 

02 Jun 2019 17:34:35
Ed 002
Do you know the date by which we need to appeal the transfer ban?
I thought it was either Thurs/ Friday last week but obviously not.
Thanks

We have a PL title winner and a french title winner available at no cost.
Why spend £30/ 40m for someone who contributed little in the season?
And supposing we returned to playing 4231 where would we fit in Bakayoko/ Barkley/ Drinkwater/ Kante/ Jorg allowing for Lofty/ Mount to play middle of the three?
If we are to spend anything it should be on a striker IF and only if we can get someone significantly better than we have Giroud/ Tammy/ Bats.
