I just wondered if anyone knew what was happening with Barkley, is he likely to get a loan somewhere on deadline day?

Also, Charly Musonda? I know he was working his way back to full fitness and took part in early pre season sessions but since then it's all gone a bit quiet?

dan23

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea are looking to sell Ross Barkley but it is likely now that they will need to consider a late off of a loan. Nothing will happen with CM until he is fit.}


1.) 31 Aug 2021 11:18:08
Thanks Ed and thanks for all your time and info over the transfer window. Hope today goes well and isn’t too crazy for you.

Well looks like CHO is on his way to Bayern. Can't help but think it's a big mistake, I know we have options but Werner clearly isn't a winger and Mount is also wasted out there which leaves just Pulisic.

If reports are true letting Tomori go will also be suspect unless we plan to keep Rudiger but I'd still take Tomori in our starting 11 over the others.

I feel a lot of mistakes are starting to happen which could cost Frank. Barkley, yes he won't start but he's a good option from the bench. I hope I'm wrong but to me this stinks of the AVB season where it had so much promise but bad decisions cost us.

dan23

1.) 04 Oct 2020 07:10:22
I don’t think he will leave Dan.


2.) 04 Oct 2020 07:24:10
Not sure where you’ve got your info from. But can’t see CHO going anywhere. Rudiger will go - just like Luiz went last year.

Which mistakes are you talking about exactly?

And comparing this to AVB’s season - 🤣🤷🏻‍♂️.


3.) 04 Oct 2020 08:07:53
Werner needs to be played up top. Mount is no winger. We Ziyech to come back, and Pulisic is back. Cho is back up to Ziyech and Pulisic. I think we still need another winger let alone letting cho leave!


4.) 04 Oct 2020 11:48:02
Simon Johnson said he is staying.


5.) 04 Oct 2020 12:23:40
Quick reminder that AVB season ended in us winning the champions league.


6.) 05 Oct 2020 22:25:21
If it wasn’t happening I think Lamps would have said so in his interview. If was lose CHO we down to Pulisic as our only natural winger. We can’t keep wasting Werner out there.

Mistakes would be allowing Rudi to leave in a season where we have the CV situation and also we could potentially play about 50 games. Letting Barkley go who is one of our only natural goal scoring midfielders. I think we’re cutting the wrong players lose.

I referenced AVB as that was the year we were tipped to challenge playing this attacking football and also the year we signed Lukaku, De Bruyne, Mata and Courtios.


 

 

29 Sep 2020 14:45:33
Really hoping the rumours of Zouma leaving aren't true. I know he's not the best on the ball but he's probably the best at defending.

I'd sooner let Christensen leave if I'm honest. I think he's had his chances over the years and hasn't really progressed too much.

Looking forward to the game tonight. I'd like to see Tomori and Chilwell get a start. I'd also like to see Werner start down the middle as I think he's wasted on the left.

dan23

1.) 29 Sep 2020 15:42:46
Zouma is our best CH in my opinion dan and I would be amazed if we let him go. Christensen has been playing well and Tomori is all promise and pace.


2.) 29 Sep 2020 15:47:45
Christensen is doing well at the moment too, why would you let him go now that he’s beginning to show good maturity in his game? How a player peaks differs individually. I agree with you that Zouma should stay this season and I also think that Christensen should stay this season too if Chelsea isn’t looking to sign another CB.


3.) 29 Sep 2020 15:48:06
Been saying it all season, he should be in the team 🤷🏽‍♂️.


4.) 29 Sep 2020 15:58:27
Dan we think alike mate 👍.


5.) 29 Sep 2020 19:11:12
He's good I agree but his lack of confidence on the ball is kinda concerning. I say let him and AC stay this season, if they don't do well we can let them go next season.


6.) 01 Oct 2020 02:57:47
Reason i'd let AC leave over Zouma is because he's simply too weak, same reason i don't like Jorginho as a DM. Both players get bullied consistently whenever they come up against physical players.


 

 

08 Sep 2020 16:56:13
Seems Tomori is heading to Everton on loan. I find that a bit disappointing if I'm honest. Would sooner have let Christensen go.

Was looking forward to a Silva/ Tomori partnership.

dan23

1.) 08 Sep 2020 17:22:35
Well he won't get much playing time since we have Zouma, AC, Rudi and Silva. Even Dave can play as a RCB too.
So I think it's a nice loan. He would improve under Carleto.


2.) 08 Sep 2020 19:12:28
I think he could have partnered Silva, but if he has to go on loan then this is a positive one. Everton are looking like they'll be competitive this season.


3.) 08 Sep 2020 23:06:09
Agree that he stands to benefit more from the possibility of getting minutes there rather than being the likely 4th choice defender here. It’s easy to say we want to sell X and Y player but it doesn’t work that easily and this has been made all the more difficult by C.V.’s implications on club finances.


 

 

07 Sep 2020 22:00:44
According to Romano, we should get Mendy in the next few days. Interestingly he stated that Rice is next on the list. he's not been wrong about much this far.

Imagine topping the window off with Rice. What a window!

dan23

1.) 07 Sep 2020 22:13:47
Any Ed’s have opinion on mendy as a player?


2.) 08 Sep 2020 14:48:08
Someone did an overview of Mendy using three different websites featuring top 30 keepers -
Shot Stopping. 3rd
Aerial Ability 1st
Leaving the line/ Sweeper keeper 25th
Passing 17th
The passing is weaker as he was one of the highest using launch balls in the list.
Overall a significant step up from Kepa.


3.) 08 Sep 2020 21:22:24
out of intrested who was number 1 in shot stopping.


4.) 09 Sep 2020 13:11:09
I can tell you who it wasn’t, Wheely haha.

Well, I reckon Trev's just saved us £68m 😂
I see absolutely no reason why we would go and spend that sort of money on a new CB! No thanks, save the cash Marina, he'll do just fine. One of our own!

dan23

1.) 14 Aug 2021 18:02:46
There's room for both Chalobah and Kounde / Marquinos.


2.) 14 Aug 2021 18:05:18
Trevoh Chalobah is solid but we have to sign Kounde.


3.) 14 Aug 2021 18:32:24
If neither Rudi or Christensen sign a new deal we could be out 3 CB’s next year with Silva’s contract ending.


4.) 14 Aug 2021 18:13:51
We will make room for Koundé. But we shouldn't sign a RWB at this point. Azpi and James are good enough until Sterling is ready.


5.) 14 Aug 2021 18:13:51

6.) 14 Aug 2021 19:44:59
I agree Ashk RWB is not necessary a CM to take the weight of Kante should be the priority .


 

 

09 Jun 2021 12:41:11
If reports are true we've bid for Hakimi. Personally, I think it's good business. Azpi isn't getting any younger and Tuchel seems to prefer Reece as a RCB. It's nice to see that we're going after someone of that quality rather than a cheaper option.

Would I say it's a priority, probably not. I think a centre mid should be top of the list alongside a world class striker but if that's what Tuchel feels we need then I'm happy the club are backing him.

dan23

1.) 09 Jun 2021 13:26:37
You see Azpilicueta make really good runs, taking up good offensive positions, from RCB. When James has played there he's been a bit more conservative, quite rightly so for someone new to the position.

But, with all his abilities, if James can make similar runs and find himself is similar positions then he'd have a great future in that position. Put Hakimi ahead of him and that right side would be amazing.


2.) 09 Jun 2021 13:26:53
Mendy
James rudiger varane
Hakimi kante jorginho chillwell
Havertz mount
Werner,
Obviously I’d like to add haaland and rice etc etc but this isn’t completely unrealistic is it,


3.) 09 Jun 2021 22:28:40
Where does Varane come from? And Rudiger is not good in the central position. Put Silva or AC in there and move Rudiger out. I don't see us getting Varane.


 

 

23 May 2021 21:42:35
So we didn't get over the line in style but the top 4 wasn't about today it was about the whole season.

What with C.V., a change in managers, misfiring forwards, injuries, a hectic schedule and new players bedding in I'd say top 4 is a small success. Especially given where we were at Xmas.

The shouts of Tuchel being clueless in big games is ridiculous. 2 finals and numerous wins over big teams blacks that up.

Yes, some players need moving on but the ones in question needed moving on before this season started, that's nothing new.

Look at things differently. We've done this without a prolific striker, just imagine we sign one or and better still Werner finds a bit more form in front of goal next season. Personally I'd be optimistic about next season.

Well done to Frank and Thomas as well as the players for what we've achieved this season. In what was probably yet another transition period.

dan23

1.) 23 May 2021 22:07:42
Well balanced post as usual dan, most enjoyable.


2.) 23 May 2021 22:14:19
Mind boggling the money and experience that’s been put through this team and we have had to wait till the final day and then fail on our own front and people saying we are ok?
It’s laughable we’ve been so lucky that we are even able
To talk about the big competitions. Hope we win.


3.) 23 May 2021 22:19:36
Nib how on earth were we lucky to be iN champions league final?


4.) 23 May 2021 22:28:17
Nib. When Roman first splashed the cash, the club was criticised for buying the Premiership. There was no guarantee that team would gel or be successful but Jose got it playing and it was a thing of beauty.

This season has been strange for lots of reasons and it was never a given that the signings would be successful.

Werner hasn’t hit the ground running with lots of goals. Ziyech picked up an injury and hasn’t look the same player since. Havertz got C.V. and he has admitted how long it took him to get over the effects of this dreadful disease.

Next season will be the time to judge these players in my opinion.


5.) 23 May 2021 22:42:34
Dan i think vast majority of us have thought TT and the team have handled the big games very well. who hasn't agreed here?

The problem has been in the games against 'lower' clubs in terms of league position in what on paper were not so obviously big games eg in this run in against likes of West Brom and Brighton and Arsenal and yes Villa today. They lost us 11 out of 12 points and too qualifying for top 4 up to a Spurs win v Leicester nerve wracking stuff.

But we did make it .


6.) 23 May 2021 23:10:24
Fantastic post. TT has done a phenomenal job to get us the top 4. It was a distance memory back in February. Thankful for the two Finals aswel.

We just need to sort our finishing before the UCL final. The chances missed at Villa were terrible, I'm glad Ian Wright called it out on MOTD.


 

 

15 May 2021 19:39:14
Poor, didn't even turn up for the FA Cup final, you shouldn't need any motivation for that.

Tuchel also to blame for me, back to back games he's picked the wrong team. He's been a revelation since he came but got it so wrong.

For me, Jorginho should be done now. Slowed the game down to walking pace and sucked the life out of any intensity we tried to build the same against Arsenal.

Rudiger, how many times did he want a pop shot from 40 yards? Pass the ball!

Must win game in the week, again if we don't turn up for that or lack motivation they don't deserve to finish top 4.

All that being said, amazing to see the fans back, such a special moment. Congratulations to Leicester and Brendan, totally deserved.

dan23

1.) 15 May 2021 19:46:33
Like your post dan.

We have thrown in a few tepid performances and certainly for the majority of the game this was another one.

Two big games to come. It will be a test of character for the players and a tactical and motivational exercise for TT.


2.) 15 May 2021 20:23:41
whatever the problem with Abraham, he should have been on the bench today. If he wants out then
a- he had the audience to play well and show chelsea what they will be missing and how wrong TT has been and
b- obviously put himself in the shop window.
could not TT understand that.


3.) 15 May 2021 20:32:55
That decision was truly baffling for me.
And yet Werner plays almost every game until the very end.


4.) 15 May 2021 20:59:57
No Tammy on the bench but I believe two left backs were. Strange but maybe he is injured.


 

 

06 May 2021 09:10:00
Brilliant from the team last night. Nullified their threat and we were so dangerous going forward. The combination of pace, power and finesse was great to watch.

Kante. just wow. I've said it so many times but those calling for him to be sold, embarrassing. Still the best in the world at what he does.

The team was littered with top performances. So happy for Mason, you could see post match he was emotional.

Yes, we missed chances and yes a couple more of them from Timo but that's 13 goals 14 assists this season, in a so called poor season for him. Just imagine next year if he hits form, scary! He deserves a lot of credit for keeping going all year, despite his many critics, mentally tough.

Can't wait for the final. Could it be so, 10 years on. KTBFFH 💙.

I think my only issue with this, Tammy leaving and Broja going on loan is we now have just one recognised striker for the season. If big rom has any lengthy spell out the side we’re back to Timo and Kai up top. Which is fine but it got us 4th last year, we want that top spot.

I’d have kept one of them, probably the young lad as back up. I know it’s about his development etc. but he’ll probably learn more being around big rom than he will fighting relegation with the Saints.

Anyway, I’m not one to be negative on here, squad is looking well balanced and I’m optimistic about what we can achieve this season.

Ps. If Marina wants to put the cherry on top of the cake and get us a DM, the lad Bissouma from Brighton is super talented ;)

I think we'll need him. The season could become very disjointed in terms of CV, more regular fixtures and multiple competitions.

Usually teams like to work with small squads of 22ish players. I think this season teams will have slightly larger squads of 26.

Be interesting to see how we set up. With all this attacking talent, Kante might need some help in front of the defence. I'd like Ampadu to stay as we'll need the cover.

It’s not about punishing the players or us fans. But I don’t think a board member stepping down is good enough and then they just expect the footballing world to forget about it because some suit lost their job?

Hit the clubs in the pocket, European ban = less revenue and points deduction means less money from a premier league finish. This whole scam was about more money after all so take it away from them and take away the things they undermined I. e. premier league and Europe.

Bit of a ridiculous statement that mate. You can’t judge them on “making a killer pass” especially as that pass relies on movement of others and often they were the last man. You aren’t just going to kick the ball in the box when they’ve got 6 men back, you need to have something to pass to.

Hazard, Cesc and Bruno were/ are all in their prime. Mason and CHO are at the start of their careers.

I can’t believe you’ve tried to find a negative from that performance, we completely dominated them in every department.

He asked what his style was not how the players played on the one occasion you switched BT on and saw them in the champs league pal.

He hasn’t even got the job yet and I’ve seen your negativity on at least 3 posts already.

Most of us are gutted it didn’t work for Frank but there’s no point starting the Tuchel out campaign before he’s even sat down.

He has a similar pressing style to Klopp, as do a lot of the younger German coaches. I think he's very detailed in his approach and every player has a specific job that they're expected to learn and carry out.

Plays out from the back, usually in a 422 or 442.

From what you hear he has the tendency to fall out with pretty much everyone so that'll be fun.

I'd like to see Rangnick come in above him as a Technical Director.
