Ed002 any truth in West Ham interest in zouma? Or any other interest in him?
Many thanks.

fuser

{Ed002's Note - Kurt Zouma (CB) Will be available in the summer but the interest of Spurs went with Mr Mourinho. Maybe Roma will be interest or perhaps there is still interest from Everton. Offered to Seville as part of a deal for Kounde but I doubt that would suit the player. I am not aware of any approach from West Ham but they are keen on a CB and he fits the bill.}


1.) 30 Jul 2021 09:04:47
Hopefully Sevilla's offer of sun, sea and UCL football can persuade Zouma.


2.) 30 Jul 2021 12:58:05
RJ Seville is not on the coast but it has a river. I went there many years ago it is a beautiful city.

{Ed0666's Note - boiling hot aswell. The frying pan of Europe

Short train journey down to Cadiz for all your seaside needs. It's a wonder more English players don't give the continent a go.

Everyone is saying we should replace Hazard (if he leaves) with Griezmann. Griezmann earns £350,000/ week after tax so. I don’t think the club would match that.
I understand the desire of posters wanting to replace players they feel aren’t up to par but the expectations of some are ridiculous.

fuser

1.) 21 Jan 2019 08:31:58
Greizman a striker / CF, hazard a winger, if hazard goes we need a winger / wide forward,


2.) 21 Jan 2019 11:08:55
And why would Griezmann come to Chelsea - a team sinking into mid-table obscurity?


3.) 21 Jan 2019 11:40:58
Don’t see us mid-table! Very strange “supporter” aren’t you MDW?


4.) 21 Jan 2019 15:00:22
CFCAdam, unlike some, I deal in reality - would you seriously consider us 'on the up'? We're losing Hazard and CHO seems determined to leave which leaves us with an ageing side; we are replacing Morata with Higuain - a massive gamble in playing terms and financially; we have seen little real investment in the team since Fabregas and Costa; we have employed an ageing manager who has never won anything in football and who plays our 2 best players out of position. Would any of this entice Griezmann to join us?


5.) 21 Jan 2019 15:26:00
mid table hahahaha.


6.) 21 Jan 2019 16:27:03
in reality. really?!

4th in the league, still in all comps. Not bad in my eyes. Mid-Table finish - Never. Top 4 - yep, united will have a blip. Arsenal too inconsistent to finish top 4.

No investment - Whattt! We spent £57m on Jorginho - who may still be a success. £71m on a potentially world class Keeper. Yet no investment? We've offered Hazard THE biggest contract in the history of the club, not our fault if he wants to go elsewhere. We've (supposedly) offered CHO the biggest contract for an 18 year old, who let's be honest hasn't yet achieved anything in football, but we've offered it to him. We've tied Kante down to a new contract. that's investment too. We've just signed one of the most up and coming talents in Europe in Pulisic, but stupidly let him stay at Dortmund.

Sarri will come good if the players back him, i think the club will and cannot see him going anywhere for 2 years at least. I think you forget that no other club in Italy won anything apart from a very good Juventus side, but his Napoli side pushed them hard.

Formation is down to Sarri yes, that i agree with and hopefully he's not too stubborn to change it. But only a few weeks back we beat City at home, where has that passion gone as the tactics where the same! Also, Kante scored that night and again against Palace and people weren't moaning then. We should have beat Spurs last week but due to lack of a striker - we spent big on Morata, who turns out is a bit of a wimp and not suited to Prem - hardly Sarri's fault. Higuain could be the man we need, scored goals wherever he's gone. The Milan side he's currently in is a poor attacking side, not his fault in the lack of goals.

Have faith man, everyone was raving at start of season, with how we had started etc. Just a dip in form, like we have every season.

Keep the faith.

i don't see higuian missong all the chances morata has in last 12 months and i also don't see him getting disposessed every time he has possession cause he's strong an sturdy and not a big baby like morata throwing himself to the ground every oppertunity an moaning to the refs and let's be honest just looking like an absoloute ejit. shame it didn't work out i liked him bit he's just not mentally strong for pl or physically for that matter.


10.) 22 Jan 2019 20:31:43
gg, oh yes there is a 'coming back' - it's called going to games and seeing how we are declining week on week. We are a demotivated, ageing team that is very obviously not happy with so-called 'Sarriball'. We had a fortunate start to the season (anyone remember the sitters that Arsenal missed against us at home? ) - but since the end of our unbeaten start we have been getting worse and worse (allowing for 1 good performance against City) .

Man United and Arsenal are both on our tails and will overtake us sooner rather than later - which will leave us in 6th - not exactly mid-table perhaps but only because every other team below 6th is ordinary. As for cups, we are in the semi-final of a cup that nobody could give a toss about and we haven't played any team worth mentioning yet in the other 2. But you lot continue along happy, clappy way that I can only attribute to a vast intake of mood altering drugs!

I'm pretty happy with he business done in the January window as we moved on a few players and recouped a nice amount of money. Whilst the summer transfer window is far away, I'm expecting it to be very busy and Conte will have a massive job on his hands imo trying to balance integrating returning loan players whilst replacing and potentially upgrading a few positions.

Definite outs: Costa, Terry.

fuser

1.) 02 Feb 2017 08:26:54
I agree with that, not sure costa is definite just yet.

what do you think of musonda?
I think he is very talented but not nearly ready and I don't think we will see him unless we win the league a few matches before the season ends.
kenedy will provide cover and potentially get the chance to impress in the cup imo.
still cannot decide if ake becomes a starter or not


2.) 02 Feb 2017 18:59:33
I pressed post without finishing so just left it there. I haven't seen enough of musonda to know whether he's ready. I don't see him, Ake or kenedy or even Batshuayi getting a game unless we win the league with 3-4 games to spare.

Come the summer though we'll need to try and figure out whether we want to sign a new CB to replace Cahill in the starting 11 or whether Zouma/ Ake/ Christensen will take his spot. And then whether Cahill will want to stay or move on.
We'll probably need a versatile WB preferably RWB.
A new back-up GK to replace Begovic and perhaps a starting GK if Real Madrid come in for Courtois.

CM I feel we're okay but it'll depend on whether Fabregas will want to stay as a bit part player and whether Conte believes he needs someone with a bit more magic than Matic.

Forwards: think we'll see Costa leave so we should target someone versatile who can play either up front or on the wings in the mould of Dybala or Griezmann or failing that i'd go for Aubameyang. Failing that I'd stick with Batshuayi and bring in a backup/ promote a youth player.

Think there’s a massive overreaction over the results from the last few weeks. We’ve had injuries to key players for the most part.

I’m not saying Lukaku is going to turn out to be great for us, but he’s played like 5-6 games and then got injured and yet people want him sold back to Italy already ? Italian clubs are in dire financial straits, we’d be lucky if any of them could afford £50m for him.

Ziyech, RLC, Barkley all definitely need to go. Saul let him go at the end of the season. Same with Azpi and alonso. The rest of our forwards I’d wait and see how they do for the rest of the season and potentially what players are available to replace them.

fuser

1.) 17 Dec 2021 09:56:46
The way he is playing at the moment I can see some value in keeping Ziyech, at least to the end of the season.

I would also keep RLC until then as well.

I think we are stuck with Saul until the end of the season so let’s hope his form improves.


2.) 17 Dec 2021 10:09:59
I agree if Ziyech played consistently he would be a decent player. can't expect to do wonders with a game here and there.

Agree tho.
Alonso
Dave (as much as I hate to say it)
Saul (looks lost)
Barkley
Sarr
need to be replaced.

Need fresh and exciting youngsters to come in.


3.) 17 Dec 2021 10:13:35
I also thought Ziyech first half looked very good. there's quite a player there potentailly for us, and he has been one who has for me improved in recent games and worked really hard. Was involved in many of what were fine movement with no end result in first half, with Pulisic and Mount so nearly with stunning team goals. So nearly.


4.) 17 Dec 2021 11:33:01
But Ziyech needs to play as a an attacking-mid not a number 6 as we was moved to after the substitutions on 56 mins.


5.) 17 Dec 2021 11:05:15
Smart additions are needed, can't really argue too much with those who you say could / should be replaced. Although I do think Ziyech is currently performing better than a lot of our attacking options, even if he fades in and out of games. I'd also argue (ok so I can argue with a couple of them) that RLC is a good squad option, although him starting so many games in a row has shown our lack of depth through injuries / C.V. at the moment.

Azpilicueta looks to be heading back to Spain, I'd imagine him, Saul and Alonso can all travel together come the summer. CB's will be signed, I imagine at least one attacker will be signed and one, possibly two, of CHO, Ziyech and Pulisic will leave.

There has been an overreaction to what, for now, I'd consider a stutter, rather than a collapse. The criticism of Lukaku is pretty crazy. This squad is definitely capable of winning trophies, could win the UCL again. But, over the course of a League season we still look short of Liverpool and Man City. Nothing wrong with that, they're probably to two best teams in Europe at the moment, and we're clear of the rest of the league. Smart additions, not mass additions, will allow us to close that gap.

Could be worse, try being an English cricket fan struggling through the Ashes at the moment. Tune into that to see really poor coaching, team selection, captaincy, tactics and general play.

7.) 18 Dec 2021 06:43:20
Few tweaks needed obviously and u would let go off cho, rlc, barkeley to add effective players who can perform when called up on. With these players we feel we have depth but when required to play games in a row, you realise they are not good enough which will only be the best to sell them and get in players who disciplined and dedicated enough. Big things were expected of rlc but its better to sell now before as usual he goes for another months. being English we can at least realise a reasonable amount if sold to an epl club. its obvious kante is our most important player and lots weaker without him in the squad but we don't have a proper cover for him which is one of the reasons we have been poor lately. We can't remain stubborn for tchoumani and look for alternatives ASAP, i will look at kassel or bissouma.
Imo i disaggree on the gap between us and city and Liverpool. We can both of them with our full squad but struggle with limited squad more. liverpool almost missed out on the top 4 last season when they lost a few key players to injury.
Tom you can be so pathetic with your sentiments, you don't wait until season end to do the needful when things are bad when things become irreversible. You were hiding your support to keep lampard last season on waiting until the end of the season to assess him when we were in 9th position in the winter. Rlc has been with the 1st team for some seasons yet he is been overtaking by James, Mount and even Connor at cp. like barkeley he's not good enough for Chelsea and should be used to exploit the English privileges by selling for premium and get proper Chelsea standard players and move on.
Again I hope that toress/ ancelotti won't happen to tt and lukaku. Except certain players are brought in to help lukaku his flaws are much to fit into the team now and will soon start weighing on the coach. Was against resigning lukaku he's not a team player and limited in skills. I will take werner everyday in our team over lukaku even if he missed chances but lukaku not free of this unfortunately our attack is weaker and rigid with lukaku. He may not have played so many but its obvious he's a misfit. If we can get haland with him included I will be over the ?. A striker with such first touch as his and not clever with his builds is not one Chelsea should have. I would try to get auba in the January to add options. Stop gap though until we sort out the striker situation in the long term but imo lukaku is not the solution. shouldtnt have giroud go.
We need to have squad be good as the starter or else we lose grounds on our rivals with rlc, cho barkeley etc.

{Ed014's Note - don’t be rude to other posters fella, if I find you doing it again I’ll just delete your post. It’s not the first time you’ve done it either.


8.) 18 Dec 2021 08:44:18
Zealot, I certainly didn’t hide my support for Lampard last season in what I believed was a club project. When he was sacked I also took the typical Chelsea supporters view of “The king is dead long live the king” and said I would give my 100% support to TT.

I will continue to be critical of the players, manager and if necessary the club on a game by game basis but I will always try (not always successfully) to be constructive.

As far as players leaving mid-season are concerned I have given my views several times. I think Barkley will leave and think the situation with Rudiger’s contract may make it difficult for TT. I would like Alonso to leave but obviously only if we can get a quality replacement.

Im generally happy with the squad but not with some performances and unfortunately there are a few players who I don’t think will improve if they stay at our club but I will give them my full support throughout this season.

I will continue to give my end of season summary on individual performances also adding who I think will be leaving and who I would like us to sign or not sign.

30 Jul 2021 19:59:57
I don’t see us signing Rice (given how high the fee would be) unless we sold one of Kante/ Kova/ Jorgi.
I’ve seen people saying if we were going to get Haaland it would have happened by now. And I totally disagree. BD don’t want to sell but I think if we offered 130-150 I think they’d struggle to turn it down considering they’d get less than half that next summer. So I think it’s probs a little bit of brinkmanship, where Chelsea want to try lower it a little bit. Could also be that BD want to line up and secure a replacement before they green light it so the price of the replacement isn’t hiked up. There’s plenty of possibilities and there’s still a whole month of the window to go. If in 2 weeks time we haven’t signed anyone then maybe I’ll start to get nervous.

fuser

1.) 31 Jul 2021 09:05:58
If we say we're going to pay £150m for Haaland that would work out at about £50m (including wage and bonuses) a season over a 5 year contract - it would be a massive risk for a 20 year old. Just consider how many goals that Werner scored in the German League and we can see what a huge step up it is to the PL.


2.) 31 Jul 2021 11:33:38
JamieP; Good thing you said 20 year old, meaning he still has value even if it doesn’t work out for him in the EPL. I feel it’s part of what makes a move for Haaland more attractive in some ways.

I think there’s a whole lot of differences between Haaland and Werner, they are not the same type of player in many ways hence their returns (in goals) to the EPL might not necessarily be the same. Haaland is clearly more powerful, central, robust and rugged- he possesses all the qualities of the Chelseasque striker than Werner. True they both might be coming from the same league but Haaland is a monster of a centre forward. On the other hand, imagine Werner tucked away HALF of the chances he got last season, perhaps we would have been telling a different story now. One glaring thing about both players is that no defender wants to play against either.


 

 

16 May 2021 11:39:57
The top 5 in the PL will qualify for the CL this season.

fuser

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 16 May 2021 12:16:16
I think I am correct in saying, if we win the Champions League and Utd win the Europa League with us finishing outside the top four then only the top three would qualify for next season’s Champions league.

If we lose the Champions League then it’s the top four spots that qualify.

Only five teams from any country can qualify for the Champions League competition.

I hope that makes sense.


2.) 16 May 2021 16:05:43
In the first scenario, the top 4 and Chelsea would still qualify because utd would be one of the top 4 and that would be five teams. The scenario where only the top 3 qualified was if utd won the europa league and Chelsea won the champions league and both finished out side the top 4.


3.) 16 May 2021 16:31:36
eden, Utd can’t finish outside the top four.


4.) 16 May 2021 17:13:45
No, exactly, so the top 4 will qualify even if Chelsea win the champions league and finish outside the top 4 and utd win the europa league. The only scenario 4th wouldn't qualify would of been if arsenal had won the europa league, Chelsea the champions league and both finished out side the top 4,but obviously that can't happen, so the top 4 will qualify.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester United winning the Europa League makes no difference. Chelsea would qualify if they won the Champions League and finished outside of the top four.}


5.) 16 May 2021 17:43:07
Ok thanks Ed.

So just to clarify, if Chelsea win the Champions League and finish outside the top four and Man Utd win the Europa then only the first three in the Premiership qualify for next season’s Champions League?

{Ed002's Note - No, Manchester United have already qualified for the Champions League.}


6.) 16 May 2021 18:06:05
OK, got it now. Thanks Ed.


7.) 16 May 2021 19:16:51
Sorry and thanks eden.


 

 

30 Jan 2021 08:31:16
This whole Lampard wanted aubameyang and tarkowski is a joke. If he did actually want them then I’m glad the board laughed him out of the rooms they’re not Chelsea quality at all. Auba is like 30 at least rn and we can see how poor he’s been since signing his new contract, I’d expect as much from him on a new big Chelsea contract.

Frank wanted Rice and that’s pretty much been played out. But both Werner and Havertz I believe have been quoted as saying Lampard talked to them (in Werner’s case extensively) so I don’t get why he’d go out of his way to convince a player to join who he didn’t want.

Then onto people who claim Klopp gets his firsts choice. You’re completely wrong. Salah was I believe 3rd on the list and Jota more a backup for traore. I’m sure there’s others too.

So maybe yes Pep gets the exact player he wants but 99% of managers don’t unless their 1st choice is actually attainable.

As usual a very interesting and informative post fuser.!


2.) 30 Jan 2021 11:34:24
That certainly reflects what I believe to be the case.
The idea that few if any were the last managers 'signings' was sown by his uncle and a few friendly journos who should know better.
He for example talked up Ziyech for months and said specifically he had watched him for a few years and claimed he was a special player who had been missed when he was injured.
Bad workman always blames his tools comes to mind.

Definitely think team selections have been dodgy recently except for the 2 spurs games. Despite his goal I think Ziyech and CHO have been pretty poor and both should have been subbed far earlier than the 80th minute. Obvs have no idea about players fitness and recoveries etc but Havertz has been woefully underused imo.

I would not touch Dembele at all. Inconsistent and makes Pulisic look like he’s made of steel. Rudiger as a make weight for Dest or De jong maybe but doubt Barcelona would entertain it when they can just sign him for free in the summer.
