Ed is there a chance bakayoko could play for chelsea this coming season I always thought he s a really good player I know he didn't have best of times before but I would like to see him back playing well.

gianfranco gola

{Ed002's Note - It is possible but the preference is to sell him.}

1.) 19 Jul 2021 16:03:00
OK cheers for reply.

2.) 19 Jul 2021 18:48:00
Trevor Chalobah is better and will do a better job than Bakayoko for me, I think we should stick with Chalobah if our DM options prove too expensive. I pray T. Chalobah can impress Tuchel in our ungoing preseason training.

{Ed002's Note - It is very unlikely.}

3.) 19 Jul 2021 19:23:45
I pray we don’t sell Chalobah though even if it’s unlikely he stays with Chelsea this season. I think there’s really a powerful CDM in him and his height makes everything about him even better.

{Ed002's Note - Trevoh Chalobah (DM/CM) WBA have asked for a loan to buy but a decision needs to be made if he is to be sold or not. Lorient want him back and Montpellier and Lens would be open to buying at the right price. Whilst discussing other players, Crystal Palace asked after his availability. Chelsea cannot offer him game time.}

4.) 19 Jul 2021 20:04:27
Chelsea knows best but I strongly think- Chalobah will be ready in two years if he eventually goes where he will get steady game time (week-in week-out) . Should Chelsea decide to sell him, I think he should remain in the Ligue-1- they seem better at developing defensive midfielders; and would be cheaper and easier (for us) to buy him back in the future; maybe Chelsea could also look to adding a better and similar clause to his deal like we did with Marc Guehi.
My take: I think N. Chalobah can be a better player than Declan Rice (with constant football at a good club) .

Looking back on the fa Cup final highlights again
The Leicester goal was a screamer but I urge you to watch tiago silva he basically gets out of the way tucks his arms in and turns his back on it very poor defending.

1.) 18 May 2021 06:26:45
What about Jorginho? He only jogs a bit and points and Tielmans and then shouts something. But hey, that's what you expect from him I guess.

2.) 18 May 2021 07:50:59
Tielemans had an acre of room around him. No one went to close him down.

3.) 18 May 2021 12:49:44
Never miss a chance to criticise Jorghi when it was a misplaced pass by Reece and shocking defending by Silva.
No way should a top defender stand and watch a player in space advance without a challenge and shoot.



17 May 2021 08:58:27
Are there any clubs interested in tammy Abraham.

gianfranco gola

1.) 17 May 2021 09:24:31
The last time Ed was asked the question the answer was yes!

I think he also gave a list and of course at the time we were still discussing a new contract with him but that now seems very unlikely.

2.) 17 May 2021 10:36:52
West Ham, Villa and Leicester are said to be interested.

3.) 17 May 2021 11:41:06
I think there was some European teams interested as well.

4.) 17 May 2021 15:33:40
Hopefully it’s permanent and no more loans. Be helpful if we could strike a deal for Rice as part of a deal with West Ham. I also think Villa will come in for him.

5.) 17 May 2021 15:35:16
Would like to know if the club is actively looking to sell J5 this summer and bring a suitable cm that can move us forward. Personally I already got fed up with him until TT came on boardand managed to put him in a small space and lat ngolo cover him up but he's been a disaster again lately . obviously the weaklink in our set up. nit hating on our player but I also need to point out our weakness and hope it's improved on . imo J5 doesn't suit our league and don't seem to settle in since his arrival here.
Please nobody should come up with we don't need a cm because we have bG. he's talented but not ready for a starting role for a chelea team that want to compete at the highest level.

6.) 17 May 2021 16:39:17
I’m confused about the contract position of Tammy. Some saying he has only one year left others saying two on his current contract.

If it’s one year, it won’t be a loan.

7.) 18 May 2021 08:14:15
Thanks for reply ashik.



19 Apr 2021 13:51:40
Ed is it possible the 6 clubs from premier league get thrown out of the league as punishment and esl doesn't go ahead.

gianfranco gola

{Ed002's Note - Of course. But they will be allowed to rejoin in the National League.}

1.) 19 Apr 2021 14:24:39
Sort of hope it happens teach these money grabbers a lesson.

2.) 19 Apr 2021 15:04:15
ESL will probably happen though.
They have signed a 23 year contract, JP Morgan has given them $6b.
The EU and UK competition law will allow it to go through. All the 12 founder teams have came out of the ECA.

3.) 19 Apr 2021 16:29:12
I think those 12 teams need psg and German teams in it or it won't have the credibility it needs you couldn't say you were the European champs without the German and French sides in it
It will end up like darts
Bdl and pdc a farse.

4.) 19 Apr 2021 17:58:16
I Hope mount picks that ball up tommrow and walks off the pitch can’t be an esl if the players refuse to play I will have so much respect for any of them who walk off.

5.) 19 Apr 2021 17:05:20
I figured this was the best place to ask, since the subject is already kind of brought up.
The chairman of the Danish FA has today said that he "expects" UEFA to 'kick out' the 12 clubs that are forming the Super League this Friday, which - according to him - would either lead to PSG winning the CL, or some alternative solution which includes none of Chelsea, Manchester City or Real Madrid.
As I have been unable to find any similar statement, I kindly ask you - is this a possibility?

6.) 19 Apr 2021 19:39:16
The players have contracts and families.

I’m sure your comment is slightly tongue in cheek Lampsy but as far as we know the players have had zero input into this proposal.

7.) 19 Apr 2021 23:26:18
Not tongue in cheek at all they get payed handsomely they don’t need the money and what’s worst can happen contract gets torn up they would all walk into anther club just because they have a contract doesn’t make them slaves and it would be nice to see them make a stand.

8.) 20 Apr 2021 06:47:42
Other than saying they are in agreement with the majority of supporters like Bamford and Milner did post match yesterday. I can’t see what else’s they can do at this stage Lampsy.

9.) 20 Apr 2021 04:27:02
Chelsea should exit the european super league. If these owners want to run a franchise they have to make (setup) their own effin teams and not use chelsea. let's see who waches those games. our game is nothing without the fans.

ED002, now that chelsea have signed their intent, would it be possible for them to leave / exclude themselves from the european SUper league . or have they (chelsea) already received money for signing up?

{Ed002's Note - They can leave if they want.}

10.) 21 Apr 2021 01:53:38
Well they done it least they have listened fair play for admitting the mistake and doing the right thing. Ed I saw on some other pages people mentioning sharkopods are you doing then again if so could we get a Chelsea one when you have the time please.

{Ed002's Note - There is no plan to do one for Chelsea right now.}

11.) 21 Apr 2021 11:06:03
Ok mate no worries thanks for sticking with us all over last few days been a gentlemen throughout and the information you have given we’ve all been grateful for so thank you.



06 Apr 2021 18:07:47
Ed with tammy not agreeing to his contract offer yet
Is there any clubs declaring an interest in him yet
Thanks in advance.

gianfranco gola

{Ed002's Note - Two clubs have spoken with Chelsea directly to say that should he be available they would like the opportunity to discuss the player. If Chelsea were to make him available I suspect a number of other sides would also be interested.}

1.) 06 Apr 2021 18:37:44
Interesting who are the 2 clubs eds if I may ask.

{Ed002's Note - I don’t want to get in to anything specific this year. Some of the regulars on the site spent their weekend spewing their hate on the club, the players and the coach after one loss in 15 games or so, so some time off is due.}

2.) 06 Apr 2021 18:59:35
Saw that I understand no worries and thanks for replies
Enjoy your margaritas.

3.) 06 Apr 2021 20:00:38
Very disappointing I agree Ed002 with a few turning up specifically to criticise a very rare set back under TT and nothing else.

{Ed002's Note - Yes it is a disgrace.}

4.) 07 Apr 2021 07:25:54
Ed002, would Chelsea be interested in Jude Bellingham as a replacement for any midfielder heading out this summer. Or as an alternative to Rice.

On a side note . Can't wait to see us bounce back tonight against Porto . Come on you blues


{Ed002's Note - Jude Bellingham is one of many, many players the club are not looking to sign this summer.}

5.) 07 Apr 2021 20:09:39
At is this rate it almost feels like there are few players left to ask about. :)

Ed001 been watching videos on YouTube came across gazza videos I always thought he was brilliant I know he's a nutter but what's your opinion of him as a England great or not
Imo I thought he was amazing.

gianfranco gola

{Ed001's Note - for England? He was great though the midfield he played in often struggled as it would normally outnumbered and he was not much help defensively. But when he got on the ball, he was a special player. I do think he let his country down with his tears and letting his head go because he would be out of the final. Compare that to Ballack a few years later who was in the same position and just played the game of his life. So mentally I would have to say he was a weak link, Gazza I mean not Ballack. Other teams could target the space he left and he could also lose his head. But overall he was as good as he could be in the England team of the time.}

1.) 20 Oct 2021 08:07:14
Thanks for your reply Ed
I loved ballack at chelsea such a good player.

{Ed001's Note - Ballack is one of my favourite ever players. He was world class. Loved him, just gutted he never played for my team! And you are very welcome.

I remember a few international coaches said they would set up their teams to go at England's midfield when Gazza played there, as they could overrun it, with there not being enough cover. Especially with Robson in there, as he liked to get forward too, I remember one said, so there would be a hole to attack. I can't remember which coach it was now though.}

2.) 20 Oct 2021 15:56:27
I bet it wasn't Jack Charlton lol he just bypassed everyone with a hoof up to his front men but it worked I guess
Good chatting with you mate cheers.

All getting a bit heavy on here
Ed did a piece on goalies and everyone has shat themselves coz mendy isn't on there
Then the I'm going to write a really intellectual post to justify my actions
Lighten up sometimes I wish I supported spurs like my dad at least the raver has a laugh
No petrol
Food shortages
Tax increases
Fuel prices going up
Universal credit going down
NHS being dismantled
Chinese threat to the west

The world is one big rubbishshow at the minute
But thing are serious when mendy is 11th on the list.

I won’t hold that against you Jimbo. In fact I live a Jameson’s when I’m at the Cheltenham festival.

9.) 06 Oct 2021 13:46:52
TomB bringing us back to CV - wasn't allowing full attendance at the Festival what started all this?!

Tom can I recommend Naked Grouse. Unbelievable as a daily dram.

11.) 06 Oct 2021 14:40:26
Jamie, you can’t blame Tom for the C.V. unless he was moonlighting in a Chinese laboratory.

12.) 06 Oct 2021 15:28:59
Jamie, That festival wasn’t the best idea but I was out of my head the whole week and couldn’t have cared less about CV. I’m hindsight all very anti-social. Anyway, I’m sure the scientists will eventually confirm that alcohol keeps away all germs.

Nathswindon, I will definitely be looking to take up your recommendation. Thanks.

Jimbo, ?⛩??.

13.) 06 Oct 2021 16:51:49
The Cheltenham festival may have increased C.V.s here but I’m pretty sure it had a more significant effect in the Emerald Isle??.

Gola we can't expect him to come back and take over the game. He needs at least 3 games to be match fit again.
