Ed 001,
Is the Fekir deal unlikely now?


{Ed001's Note - very unlikely now.}

1.) 09 Aug 2018 14:41:43
Chelsea ha hecho una oferta de último momento de 60M€ + variables al #Lyon por el mediocampista francés Nabil Fekir (25). Es muy difícil que suceda, pero hay posibilidades.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 15:07:51
A Journalist stating that Chelsea placed a bid €60m + bonuses. He stated that it would be difficult to get the deal done at this late stage, but if Chelsea have placed such a sizeable offer, we can’t rule anything out.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 15:00:42
I read that too but still will go with ed001 over some south America report.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 15:59:22
ah well i didn't expect it to happen anyway so.

5.) 09 Aug 2018 16:26:44
Remember as long as they get their sale sheet by 5.00pm they have a further two hours to complete everything.

6.) 09 Aug 2018 16:36:51
I still even at this time have a feeling we’ve got a signing to announce 😉 #Robinhomoment.



10 Aug 2017 11:17:34
Ed002, Can you let us know what strikers are we looking to add to our squad this window.


{Ed002's Note - Right now there is little or no efforts being made in terms of an out and out striker as Morata has arrived. Efforts are going elsewhere and we will see what happens with Costa.}

1.) 10 Aug 2017 12:02:30
will costa 100% never play for Chelsea again?

{Ed002's Note - I cannot possibly answer questions like that.}

2.) 10 Aug 2017 12:49:12
prob not @ Aberdeenblue.

3.) 10 Aug 2017 13:22:12
Thank you Ed for your response - as always much appreciated.

4.) 10 Aug 2017 14:33:43
I hope that Costa stays till January.

5.) 10 Aug 2017 15:00:13
sod that. if doesn't want to be at chelsea. give someone a chance who does.

6.) 10 Aug 2017 15:38:40
Agree but if Morata can pick up a few pointers and Costa helping us a bit till Athleti come knocking in January so why not. His attitude stinks but if he can put in a good 6 months.

7.) 10 Aug 2017 22:22:22
Given Contes approach to this situation you see no way back for Acosta however going into the start of the season with only two FWDs doesn't seem sensible either. If genuinely no way back for costs then I would of thought a 3rd FWD would be being lined up.

8.) 10 Aug 2017 22:30:33
What made costa top draw was nothing that can be taught, it was his hunger and character, his strengths were also his weakness,

9.) 11 Aug 2017 01:36:35
i think morata is a completely different player to costa give him time once marata is match fit hel be brilliant linking up with our wingers and midfielders i also think bakayoko will be a power house in midfield with kante. an arsenal fan posted on facebook recently a friend of mine actually asking whos the worse signing morata or lukaku an insane post considering neither have played a league game yet an morata hasn't even started a game for chelsea i hope they both score more than lacazate just so i can ram that post back at him come may next year.



30 Jul 2017 14:30:37
Ed002, Do chelsea have a plan B if hazard was to go next season. Any player / Players in particular we would see as a replacement for Hazard

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - I cannot talk about what will happen in a year.}

1.) 30 Jul 2017 14:47:32
Don't fear, mate. We won't sell Eden. Never!

2.) 30 Jul 2017 15:30:04
Dembele (the good one) was mentioned before as a possible replacement.

3.) 30 Jul 2017 18:20:59
Dembelle would be unreal but he's likely to end up at Barcelona.



31 May 2017 09:09:08
Ed002, Any update on the players going out this transfer window.

Thank you.


{Ed002's Note - Something like:
Kenneth Omeruo
Marco van Ginkel
Baba Rahman (if fit)
Cesc Fabregas
Juan Cuadrado (gone)
John Terry
Andreas Christensen (complicated and will need a commitment from the club to stay)
Asmir Begovic
Ruben Loftus Cheek (loan)
Dominic Solanke (out of contract)
Mario Pasalic (Milan want him)
Kurt Zouma - cound be on the move on loan or sale
Diego Costa
Christian Atsu
Willian (unlikely)
Michy Batshuayi (possible loan)
Matt Miazga (loan)
Nemanja Matic (maybe)

1.) 31 May 2017 17:40:35
Thank you Ed002,

As always - much appreciated


2.) 31 May 2017 18:08:55
Without putting words into your mouth, Ed: seeing a large number of first team players on that list has me thinking that at least 3 or 4 outfield first team players will be brought in. Is this true?

3.) 31 May 2017 20:34:28
Losing both Zouma and Christensen would be really incredibly stupid in my opinion. Both are some of the best young CBs in the world right now, and they're on our books. If we'd try to buy similar talents from other clubs they'd charge us at least 40 million or something for them.

Hopefully RLC gets a good loan where he'll actually be able to consistently play. And maybe Musonda to get a chance as part of the first team? Here's to hoping.

4.) 31 May 2017 20:41:28
Ed do you think chelsea will start putting buyback clauses on some of the loanees wensell

{Ed025's Note - very much so dazza..

5.) 31 May 2017 21:41:21
Ed what's gunna happen with baker.

{Ed002's Note - No idea.}

6.) 31 May 2017 21:45:24
Hi Ed, I notice you put Costa and Fabregas without any notes - does that mean they're pretty much certain to be going? I knew Cesc was likely but Costa's recent comments seem to suggest he'd only leave to Atletico - is that your expectation?

{Ed002's Note - No, there are no secret messages.}

7.) 01 Jun 2017 02:09:23
possible loan, maybe etc. doesn't mean that any of mentioned players will leave. Personally I don't expect many players to leave especially players who where starters this season.

8.) 01 Jun 2017 05:25:30
From their body language and their interviews I don't think either one of Fabregas or Costa will leave Chelsea.

9.) 01 Jun 2017 18:54:07
Absoloute joke conte isn't planing on integrating crsc to a starting spot. Building the team around him. We're gunna be so flat next year!



01 Feb 2017 08:46:23
Ed, Did Iva make his move to Zenit? and did we try signing dembele


{Ed002's Note - Yes.}

Hello Ed002,
wanted to get your take on if chelsea are happy with the play from midfield this season.
i have doubts if Lampard likes the current play and style from our midfield and still doesn't know his best 3 or 4 in there
Do you see him wanting to change his style of play come 2020/ 21 using the current crop?

Fellow fans are you happy with our play from midfield and what should change next season?



{Ed002's Note - I don;t know if Lampard is unhappy or not with the midfield performances but Ruben Loftus Cheek will be added to the mix next season and possibly Conor Gallagher will be integrated with the first team. Much will also depend on anyone leaving.}

1.) 05 Apr 2020 13:45:21
The midfield is a strange one for me. Some games we dominate yet some we’re completely overrun. Kovacic has been great this season, the rest have been on and off.



08 Jun 2019 00:42:41
Good Eden,
Thanks for all the memories.
I knew this day was coming but now that it's here, it makes me feel gutted to lose the best player we have had. Club legend. Wishing him all the very best and will support and watch RM too :)

Hazards FB post is 💓 lit


1.) 08 Jun 2019 08:30:51
£32 million bought us an Eden Hazard. if its invested correctly you never know (ban permitted of course)



15 Oct 2018 03:57:33
Ed, can you share some light on the bakayoko situation at Milan . Can they terminate the contract based on lack of whatever they say he lacks . and what's you opinion



{Ed002's Note - No, I really have no interest in discussing such matters here.}

1.) 15 Oct 2018 10:30:12
I really respect Bakayoko's exploits at Monaco and Makalele's impact in his Monaco's career; maybe now would also be a good time to give Makalele a call again. I feel Bakayoko can still improve and become the player that everyone expects him to be.

2.) 15 Oct 2018 13:28:01
I think the Milan move has killed off any confidence he had. The club and manager have been very vocal about his poor showings which isn't the best way to help a player. Gattuso is an inexperienced manager and his poor man management is showing, you do not grill a player lacking confidence in public repeated times.



01 Aug 2018 12:35:12
Is there a reason that Chelsea FC wait till the last day to make a move for some of their targets.
is it a strategy which has clubs cornered to make a quick decision rather than make more demands (monetary or otherwise)

i always feel that we wait and wait and wait and then move very close to deadline day which then makes it hard for other clubs to put in a counter bid

fellow posters - what do u guys think?


{Ed018's Note - I have no idea. It drives me nuts}

1.) 01 Aug 2018 22:43:06
Its because we cannot get into a bidding war with other clubs. We simply don't have the resources to get into a bidding war with the likes of City, United, Liverpool, Madrid etc. (I read that somewhere, but cannot for the life of me, remember where! )

2.) 02 Aug 2018 03:06:40
Risky this season with the sellers not needing to sell by our deadline, our deadline being earlier could be very favourable for clubs in other leagues.

3.) 02 Aug 2018 10:19:21
good point there, I was thinking the same

this strategy would leave us in a bit of a bother, i suspect.
7 days to go, we will know soon enuf

CHO is like a new signing for us and hope he can kick off from here.
RLC has to put in a shift or else he would not ever be good enuf for us
RB will be a my pick for this year for Chelsea amongst the usuals.



28 Jul 2018 05:32:01
Ed018, can you confirm the players who could be on the move out of Chelsea

Pedro bakayoko hazard tho willian morata batsuayi Giroud Cahill zouma and if any others.


{Ed018's Note - I can’t confirm, but from that list I’d guess Zouma, maybe Cahill, and maybe either Giroud or Bats.}

1.) 28 Jul 2018 17:09:53
If Zouma leaves it has to be a loan. He's way too talented to give up on already.

I take this as a positive . i feel that we already have a clear target for the summer window and don't want someone to come in beyond that period.

Dries Mertens / Cavani would have been perfect till summer but if we can't get either then its not worth spending this window.

Someone mentioned Jovic on Loan which would be ideal but i don't see any site reporting this so its far from happening.

Dembele seems likely and id be happy with that for now.

Lamps will need a full summer window to get clear targets come in . rather than a Jan one.
4th spot is important and i think M Bats can help us with that.

I'd say . If we cannot get the ones we want. We wait till the summer . And that's that.

My reservation with kepa is that's he is not getting better as time goes by . We have potentially good . But hasn't achieved or grown as much as we would have liked since 18 months.

I hear you Matt but we didn't have the summer window to address the issues youve mentioned and this window is the worst to do any meaniful business. Plus i would not compare us to the signings of spurs or utd . their recent track record has been really bad.

with RLC back and Pulisic getting closer to full fitness . i don't see the need for any panic buys.
we may need to find a giroud replacement but that's that . and we want a player that fits us and improves us . hard to find that during this time of the year.

i would hold back from getting a player that we don't really want or need right now

We already have players better than those u mentioned . We don't need to strengthen if we don't get our targets.

Couldnt agree more Edoo2, we should take our time. I think we can consolidate 4th with the squad we have. and look at the ones we need end of season.

If he is causing trouble there then I'm sure Chelsea will be advised against buying him . love the harmony in our team right now . hate to spoil it.
