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.

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.

Good points Adam.


8.) 21 Jan 2019 22:38:38
Mdw, there's no coming back from Adams post well said adam.


9.) 22 Jan 2019 12:57:22
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!

Ed002, Mario Pasalic only has a year left on his contract so was wondering if there was any discussions to offer him a new deal or are the club looking to sell him on now? Thanks =].

fuser

{Ed002's Note - Pasalic signed a new contract and has gone to Spartak on loan.}


1.) 11 Aug 2017 15:08:31
I must've missed him Joining Spartak on loan. Seems an odd move after 2 successful years at significantly bigger clubs in more competitive leagues.

{Ed002's Note - It was complicated.}


2.) 11 Aug 2017 16:22:50
I won't ask but cheers for the update and new sharkopod, legend.


 

 

08 Jun 2017 01:31:13
Ed002, you said Matic is a maybe to leave, so I was just wondering what clubs were interested in him? Thanks =].

fuser

{Ed002's Note - Juventus and don't rule out Manchester United.}


1.) 09 Jun 2017 00:43:11
Ed could we possibly use matic in a potential deal for sandro?
Or bonucci
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Try not to complicate everything.}

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.

Any interest in Ben Gibson or Michael Keane ed002? Thanks =].

fuser

{Ed002's Note - Both have been looked at.}


1.) 10 Dec 2016 23:22:44
Is there any chance of christensen of Ake coming back next season as Terry's replacement?

Is Tammy Abraham waiting on who we sign as a striker as to whether he’ll extend his contract or is it purely wanting parity with CHO?

fuser

{Ed002's Note - It is neither.}


1.) 08 Mar 2020 14:50:15
Can you shed any more light on the situation, Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - There is no "situation".}

CHO wearing a suit at Chelsea today. Seems like he’s finally put pen to paper on a new contract.

fuser

1.) 11 Aug 2019 08:30:35
Or maybe he was dressed for an event? 😉.


2.) 11 Aug 2019 18:29:12
Not bothered what he’s wearing will not sort that out.


 

 

27 Jul 2019 23:55:33
Ed001, what’s your opinion on mount. I didn’t really get to see him in the championship but he’s been pretty decent/ good in pre season for whatever that’s worth.

fuser

{Ed001's Note - to be honest I have not seen enough of him to judge him properly.}


1.) 28 Jul 2019 09:47:46
I see a lot of Oscar's playing style in him.

Hopefully he'll be more consistent than Oscar though. But the intelligence, work rate, eye for goal, hybrid between attacking midfield and central midfield.

Man, to me it screams Oscar.


2.) 28 Jul 2019 11:38:12
Oscar was underrated and under appreciated at Chelsea,


3.) 28 Jul 2019 18:41:14
Good God Matt. I agree with you. A rare treat for me.


4.) 28 Jul 2019 18:48:56
A midfielder that gets into the opponents box late and scores goals - exactly what we've been missing since Frank left.


5.) 29 Jul 2019 09:34:26
That’s a really interesting comparison and one that I completely agree with Jackson. Tons of industry from an attacking midfielder and an absolute nightmare in terms of his ability to press the opposition. I could see him playing anywhere in that group of three behind the striker.


 

 

10 Jun 2019 10:21:48
Ed001, I was wondering if you saw much of Bakayoko this season at Milan and what you thought of him?

fuser

{Ed001's Note - I didn't see much of him last season, sorry.}

Don’t really see it happening. Think the club will want to wait til January to see if anyone steps up and then revisit transfers then.

Sky saying £180k/ week which is eye watering for an 18 year old imo but then again not my money so the club know better. I just think in a year or two he’ll want another contract or the club will want to extend it which will bump it even higher.

We lack a lot of HG players, Christensen counts as one so he should stay. Whilst i think Pepe would be great, we’ve just spent £60m on a RW in Pulisic.

5th place will get the CL spot if City finish within the top 4 and remain banned from the competition. However there is also potential talk about a points reduction in the PL from the FA which could see city miss out of the top4 regardless.

We need somewhere to play for like 4 years and as far as I’m aware we’ve struggled to find somewhere for that long.

Taking £100m, you’d still need to pay taxes, agent fees, FA fees, any bonuses still owed to the player. There are a lot of extra fees that don’t get mentioned so there’s no fixed amount or percentage you can attribute to what would be available following the sale of a player.

I’m not worried about the figures. They have very little impact on us fans but I worry more about the expectation that would be placed on him (by fans and media alike) Perhaps he could surprise me and be our Sterling but I personally don’t see him having that sort of impact. I see Zaha as an incremental upgrade, and for the price we can do a lot better buying a player from Europe.

I don’t see how anyone could say we should buy Zaha for the figures quoted. He’d be our most expensive signing ever and at 27 he’s already at his peak now. Whilst he does have a decent level of assists I don’t think of him as a creative player which is something I think we need. Is he an improvement on what we currently have, yes most likely but I only see it as an incremental improvement and for £80m I’d argue we needed someone who would be a big improvement.
If he comes I’ll be supporting him from the offset but with our own academy players being phased into the first team I think we can look to bring in a player who is not HG and therefore isn’t monumentally overpriced.
