Ed 002
Do you think Jorghino is likely to leave the club in the transfer window?
If so where do you think he will end up?


{Ed002's Note - There have been no offers for Jorginho but Juventus could be interested - but they will want to include players in any deal and that is a problem.}

1.) 05 Jul 2020 20:07:13
Could a loan be a solution Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea would not want to loan him out.}

2.) 05 Jul 2020 20:32:26
Ok, thanks.

3.) 05 Jul 2020 21:16:33
Many thanks Ed002.

4.) 06 Jul 2020 00:09:18
If they want to include players let’s include De Ligt in the conversation (I can dream) .!

5.) 06 Jul 2020 18:50:21
Maybe a loan with obligation to buy deal maybe.

6.) 07 Jul 2020 03:04:56
I’d love it to be Demiral but it would also be a massive risk after he’s just come back from a big injury.



23 Jun 2020 22:13:21
Club have just confirmed Willian and Pedro have extended until the end of the season.
Great news we are going to need them to to qualify for the CL.


1.) 24 Jun 2020 06:16:03
I agree Turvey. Both players may well have an important part to play before this season ends.

2.) 24 Jun 2020 12:04:31
Also agree, and if both go (and Pedro seems certain to) having helped us to top four place they will go with all our blessing I'd think, though do hope Willian would not go to an EPL rival.



19 Jan 2020 21:35:03
I notice from the Madrid page that the club are open to selling Kante I presume in the summer?
Who do you think will replace him?


{Ed002's Note - I really don't know at this time.}

1.) 19 Jan 2020 23:54:59
What are we thinking, jeez, a backwards Step imo,

2.) 20 Jan 2020 07:15:08
Let's hope Soumare and Ndidi are on the list if so. And if I'm greedy Fabian Ruiz as well.



10 Jan 2020 14:37:45
Franks press conference played down the liklehood of any signings.
In addition he said Christensen was not leaving but Giroud may if it suits all parties but no decision currently
Pulisic has an injury which is more weeks than days.


1.) 10 Jan 2020 15:05:05
I wouldn't pay much attention to press conferences. Conte said we aren't signing a left back and Emerson joined 12 hours later.

2.) 10 Jan 2020 15:25:20
Good summary Turvey.

Also the latest news on RLC doesn’t sound encouraging.

I’ve still got a feeling we will sign a left footed defender and that could be Ake and maybe one other player before this window closes.

I am also pleased Lamps doesn’t want Christiensen sold. I’m convinced there is a proper “modern” defender there trying to get out.

3.) 10 Jan 2020 15:52:13
I can't see Ake arriving unless one CB is leaving which doesn't seem to be the case.

4.) 10 Jan 2020 17:31:42
To a certain extent I think you are correct about Ake Turvey.

I tagged onto the Ake idea after I was told (not sure how accurate the info was) we wanted to sign a couple of natural left footed players and another poster suggested one might be Ake.

I suppose Ake could play left back as well as a central defender.



08 Jan 2020 19:29:01
Sky reporting we have made an offer for Gedson Fernanades of Benfica.
Any truth in this?
Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - Really?}

Would the club need to sell some players if they decide to try and sign Havertz or do they have suficient funds available?


{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get in to the finances.}

1.) 06 Jul 2020 12:56:36
OK Ed 002 I thought it might have been a general enough question for it not to be complicated or controversial.

2.) 06 Jul 2020 16:36:24
The club will sell players like they do every year. It’s been made clear already who is available and who might be available and that we are after Havertz if a deal can be agreed that suits both parties. Best to just wait and see.



23 Jun 2020 15:26:35
And Pedro apparently!
Great news if true of course.




23 Jun 2020 15:22:51
Willian has agreed to stay until the end of the season apparently.
Could any of the Eds confirm if this is true?




12 Jun 2020 21:05:36
A number of journalists are reporting that we are a long way from Leverkusen valuation of Havertz.
Does this fit with your info?
Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - The situation is that theree is yet to be an agreement between Chelsea and Bayer Leverkusen.}

1.) 12 Jun 2020 21:33:16
To be honest Turvey I haven’t seen any reports saying that, only of course if it’s from Twitter, unfortunately don’t have an account on there. Can you please tell me where you read that?! Thanks.

2.) 13 Jun 2020 00:40:59
"Yet" so maybe ed002 implying there will be one in time and we should get the deal done? hope so.

3.) 13 Jun 2020 00:41:59
ElI the source is the Athletic. I read it on the Metro and they referenced the above source stating that BL want closer to 90m and interested parties are wanting to start bidding at around the 55m mark. We are miles apart apparently.

It further adds that Chelsea are not the favourites as there are many interested parties who are after the player.

It does add that Bayern are not the Favourites as they are keen on Leroy Sane and therefore credit to Ed for confirming that with us previously.

Maybe we can tick Havertz of the list for now.

4.) 13 Jun 2020 07:08:14
The Metro totally ignored what The Athletic actually said and just quoted something Iam McGarry said. It was terrible reporting.

5.) 13 Jun 2020 07:54:50
I think perhaps it's just a case of newspaper linguistics?
Ed very rarely mentions "favorites" when teams are interested in players, so perhaps it's a term that's not really used by those who are actually part of the footballing world?
Regardless, few would have said three weeks ago and the months before that that we were favorites in the Werner transfer. Sometimes things just change, and perhaps we'll end up with an agreement with Leverkusen - time will tell :)

6.) 13 Jun 2020 10:23:52
Oh okay, thanks Shak, good to see you back on here.

I for one don’t pay much attention to reports from certain journalists, and I’d be surprised if we jus paid what other clubs wanted without negotiating, let’s see how things play out.

7.) 12 Jun 2020 22:29:56
Thanks Ed002
Its an article by a couple of journalists from the Athletic.

{Ed002's Note - You should ask them in that case and not me.}

8.) 13 Jun 2020 00:31:53
Ed do you think an agreement can be found or is the difference in valuation too far apart between the clubs? Thanks for your input.

{Ed002's Note - I have not said anything of the sort - you need to try Twitter or wherever this is coming from.}

9.) 13 Jun 2020 02:49:21
How’s it going, are clubs far aspect in value and have we spoke with the player or will that come after a fee’s agreed.

{Ed002's Note - It is not worth explaining details to you.}

10.) 13 Jun 2020 10:55:51
Thanks Eli. It's good to be back on here and active again.

Really glad that the league is about to restart. Missed it a lot.

11.) 13 Jun 2020 11:00:44
No worries Ed. Usually try to stay away from all these paper gossip but sometimes I can't help but read it. I'll take what you said previously. Cheers.

12.) 13 Jun 2020 11:03:14
Ed002 no offence but nobody has been rude to you in those comments? They have seen certain statements from journalists but yet they come on here to gain your opinion and insight, they clearly value yours above anyone else’s, myself included. This is a banter and rumour site so the rumours have to come from somewhere otherwise we would have no questions to ask you? We all value the information you give us but if we don’t ask we don’t get.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry, where did I say that someone had been "rude" to me? I have explained for the last six months that Chelsea were not going to be paying the €100M asking price, why should I have to say it again because someone has repeated it?}

13.) 13 Jun 2020 11:51:52
Apologies, you never said rude but your replies give the impression you were offended by the questions.

I believe I’m worth explaining the details to as I value your knowledge within the game as all the Ed’s, it’s tough being a fan with no knowing of what’s going on behind closed doors.

{Ed002's Note - The situation is unchanged.}

14.) 13 Jun 2020 14:35:57
Bet the Ed's feel like a parent in a car with kids.

Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

I can see how they many come across short. I know I do when my boy asks the same question for the 3rd time and the answer is the same. Never mind every day.



01 Apr 2020 13:04:22
EDS 001/ 002
Canal Plus have announced they will not be paying the next installment of fees for covering Lique 1.
If this was replicated in other countries would this change the dynamics of the next transfer window in a significant way?


{Ed002's Note - FFF and clubs will only get pro rata broadcasting money - but they have nothing close to that of England. I would expect pro rata payments to be agreed in many countries.}

Maybe do a bit of research before posting meaningless rumour that is freely available to everyone on News Now and Twatter.
The Express is one of the worst culprits for picking clickbait from Twatter.
No wonder the Eds get annoyed at rumours that come from such unreliable sources.

Be good if you quoted the source which I presume is the Express quoting Pipe Sierra (whoever he is) on Twitter?
All this 'I have heard' makes a mockery of the genuine info the Eds pass onto us.

Would you know the current situation with regard to Jeremie Boga?
I read a report that Sassulo had agreed a fee to take the buyback option out of contract but don't know if this was more media nonsense?
Many thanks.


{Ed002's Note - The buyback option has been traded for a sell on fee.}

I can see that Torres has potential and has good passing ability and his height would be a plus.
But how he would cope with the PL roughnecks I am not sure.
He and Zouma might just work together well.
Rice I think would be a good addition as we have a group of small midfield players.
He has the potential to become an important part of a tougher defensive outfit we will need to challenge for the title down the road.
I like his attitude as well which reminds me of Henderson who despite not being the most skillful player has become a rock for the Scousers .

Thanks for asking mate I am lucky to live in the country near the sea so able to keep away from contact quite easily.
So far so good!


{Ed001's Note - fingers crossed you and all your loved ones stay safe and well. Living in the country must be nice right now.}
