Hi Ed, i dream of Halaand but in sure if we even have a serious interest in him. ivwint quite you for it but do think we stand any chance? I feel we only need a goal poacher to challenge any team right now. and Halaand is ideal for this and can be for a very long time. He's obviously the heir to Ronaldo who man not do much but score goals. i understand he would cost a king sum but I believe we can if we really want to. just your opinions if don't mind. thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Erling Braut Haaland (S) It would take a lot of money plus a player or two in exchange to make it work in 2021 for Real Madrid, and that would only be the case if Mbappe does not sign in the summer, which is looking to likely be the case right now with him staying in Paris a year or two more - but EH is still potentially a priority for Real Madrid in 2022 unless something changes during next season. And if the money stretches, there will also be interest from Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Chelsea and Juventus - although Bayern Munich have priorities to deal with in defence and Juventus accept their focus is on someone else. I expect Manchester City and Chelsea to try to sign Haaland this coming summer although Dortmund will resist a sale unless they fail to reach the Champions League but may commit to a 2022 sale. Borussia Dortmund have financial problems and they will get considerably Depending on the election result, there is a slim chance Barcelona could also look to him in 2022, but I think it unlikely. A cash offer from Chelsea interests his representative and Dortmund would push for a player from Chelsea as well - although they would need to wait a year before he can join. Manchester City had a preferred first choice target as an Aguero replacement but he will almost certainly not be available now, so their focus will shift to Haaland.}

Thanks for the update Ed02.

2.) 10 Mar 2021 15:58:53
Thanks so much Ed. Imo I imagine odoi being the player durtmund would want in exchange with money but I would throw in TA into the deal he's like for like in position of play TA can't reach Halaand level so nothing much to regret in future.
I would do everything to bring in Halaand this summer otherwise he will be out of reach thereafter. the lad replace DD and even to a better effects. we already have young players that could grow with him and the future could be secured for years to comewith our young but talented players. every successful clubs must have a consistent goalscorer which he's looking like he can do. i would like your opinions on who you think Dortmund would want in exchange or Chelsea will like to include. thanks as always.

{Ed002's Note - They want Charlie Webster.}

3.) 10 Mar 2021 16:21:14
I hope if CW does join them it’s only on loan. I think he is a very talented young lad.

{Ed077's Note - Dortmund ideally want Webster as a Sancho replacement, along with Donyell Malen; ideally}

4.) 10 Mar 2021 16:39:58
Hope we bend over backwards to keep the lad.

For anyone who hasn’t seen him play, I would suggest they look him up asap.

5.) 11 Mar 2021 07:02:20
If CW is what it will take to get Halaand, u would throw him in after all we have many other young players to groom. halaand is both a player for now and also for the future. We need a class goalscorerand Halaand can be that for now and even some years to come. strikers of world class are not always available and while CW us still a potential with uncertainty Halaand is already made and also for the future. Give them CW to facilitate Halaand for me all day.

6.) 11 Mar 2021 07:49:12
Haaland looks like a very good player but he is, I think, only 20 so there are no guarantees about his progression either.

In my opinion Charlie Webster is a special talent. Of course he may not progress but as things stand today, I would be trying very hard to keep him at the club.

My view on Charlie Webster is obviously shared by the Dortmund scouts.

7.) 11 Mar 2021 00:11:00
Dortmund's recruitment truly is world class. Thanks for the info ed002. Wish you wrote a book about football because learning about the game is great for all involved.

8.) 11 Mar 2021 11:30:18
We need a established scorer not another 20 y. o with one good season in Bundesliga.

Haaland is a very good talent but not what we need.

9.) 11 Mar 2021 12:04:45
We also don’t want to lose players like Charlie Webster.

I really do urge fans and posters to check this guy out. It’s no wonder Dortmund are after him.

I don't believe all these hype around English young players as they never lived upto the hype. CW looks a prospect but that's what it's. It's funny how mischievous some posters could be you push forvrice who's quoted around 100m+but thinks Halaand is not what we need. A guy who has shown everywhere he's beenincluding the UCL. i have no doubt Halaand would Bea success here. he's well built for the EPL. Btg strong and clinical in front of the goal. yoy feel CW is a potential world class because Dortmund scouts are coming for him but Halaand who every bug club in Europe is tracking with serious interest is not what we we need even when we have been lacking an out and out striker who can score consistently since costa. infact we need him more than others and I have a feeling RA would want to solve this see triker issues once and for all with Halaand. The racks up with the best for goalscoring prowess and you think he's not what we need because the finances may not stretch enough to buy Rice a player you're obsessed with. at the moment is tipped to be a future ballondor winners alongside Mpape and you would pass up sty opportunity to sign such a player for some average English player who's not among the be midfielder in the EPL. thank goodness RA has shown over time that he operate above this primordal sentiments when making decisions for his beloved club. chelsea over anyone. Halaand is what we really need now if we still want to return to reckonings in all competitions. not he's all we need but he's a kind of player for serious contenders which I think we all went to see again.

12.) 11 Mar 2021 14:19:27
Haaland has to be a priority, he’s just the missing piece in that Chelsea. I say we give them Charlie Webster and add a first option/ refusal to the deal (should Dortmund want to sell him in the future- which is likely inevitable) - that is if Chelsea can’t pay the whole cash for Haaland.

{Ed0666's Note - you and city will be favourite for the title if you get Haaland

13.) 11 Mar 2021 14:58:04
Ilo, there is no agenda about Charlie Webster is just a talented player we should try and keep.

I want us to sign Haaland. So, just offer them the cash they need and tell them to f•ck off when it comes to Charlie. If Charlie wants to leave them there is no problem.

I hate “over hyped” players of any nationality and saying one is going to be a future Ballon Dor winner of the future is just going to put ridiculous pressure on any player but that’s what the press do.

My guess is the happy hammers won’t sell Rice anyway but if they did, I would should sign him as well. It doesn’t have to be an either or situation.

{Ed002's Note - Webster cannot move this summer.}

14.) 11 Mar 2021 15:10:11
Thanks very much for the clarification Ed02. That makes me very happy.

15.) 11 Mar 2021 15:09:55
I'm happy we still have posters who can see what Halaand can bring. he's scored 40 UCL goals in fewer appearance than both Messi and Cristiano and somebody sti think he has only one good season with Dortmund. like obinna rightly said he's the missing piece in our attack if can replicate the form he's showing now and we can play even Bayern favourable with such a striker . which is like reliving the good old days when even the best would want to avoid chelsea. city will further move away if they get him performing for them. he's likely to score in every game and will be up for both EPL and UCL golden boots. which will impact the fortune if any club he plays for. i optimistic that TT will get the best out him with his tactical genius. halaand must be our priority this summer and I feel Dortmund will sell if acceptable offer is made. i trust Marina's wand. I have a feeling just as harvertz played out we shall be in the mix for Halaand because we go straight for a deal and other rivals may not be in a strong financial position to do the deal in the summer. we in otherhands will some some players which boost finances for transfers. i expect TT to want to bring in a few of his own players. he would have won the trust of the board by the season end to prompt beIN backed. we may go further than expected in UCL this season which will only show that like klop if certain marque signings (van diik influence that Halaand can bring) are made we could take both EPL and UCL by storm. ed please throw some opinions on teuch scenario.

16.) 11 Mar 2021 16:37:18
I will be happy if sign Haaland but now I’m very happy that Charlie Webster will not be going anytime soon.

17.) 11 Mar 2021 19:01:04
We need Haaland to take us to the next level. We should push the boat out to get him. If City get him they will win the EPL for the next 3 years.

18.) 11 Mar 2021 19:26:11
He looks a talented beast that’s for sure!



10 Jul 2020 17:50:43
I read on the European page where Ed02 said Alaba is willing for a move but the club in question cannot make it happen this summer. Ed could be kind to if Chelsea could look at him when available?

1.) 10 Jul 2020 20:51:02
I am guessing the club is Real Madrid.

{Ed002's Note - Right - they have other priorities first.}



08 Mar 2020 08:07:37
Hi Ed, I'm aware of your update on our targets and like you said, can change depending on other factors like availabilities. Will Chelsea be open to bid for Harry Kane if, as rumoured, he decide to leave Spurs this summer? My bad if you consider it frivolous.
Thanks and do have a nice day.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware he is being allowed to leave and Chelsea would have no interest.}

1.) 08 Mar 2020 11:35:23
More of a chance of us signing Harry Houdini than Harry Kane as long as Levy is in charge.



12 Nov 2019 13:52:35
Hi Ed, trust you are fine. Though
you never mentioned Chelsea's interest if I'm correct but do you think we may enter the bidding for Erling Haaland? His stats this season are very impressive and as such could ignite interest from the big European clubs.

{Ed002's Note - I think it unlikely.}



08 Jun 2017 10:05:46
Hi Ed, it's obvious now that Costa will leave this summer just as u stated earlier. Not a fan of Lukaku but he's rumoured to be d likely replacement. However please could u help with information about Morata and Belloti, in particular, or any other striker as regards to Chelsea this summer. Sorry if it borders u but I don't seem to find any info on it using the search function.
Have a nice day.

{Ed002's Note - See another reply Ilo.}

Hi Ed z pleasevr ok you know if any club has declared interest in halaand. in your opinion where do see him ending up if Dortmund decide to sell this summer. sorry if it been answered in your previous possts.

{Ed002's Note - Lots of clubs have a declared interest in Harland.}



04 Apr 2021 13:00:02
I just learned that pulisic is injured again. The guys injury record is disruptive. I'm beginning to worry about it. being available is a skill aswelll and I was of the opinion that we should keep him regardless of his injuries. but TT don't seem to rate him. i would bring someone who can replace hazard especially as Werner doesn't seem to cut it yet. we don't have a leader of the team by performance. i expected that pulisic should be in contention for player of the season but never settled in the team. we need another winger who can contribute with goals as that will help any new striker succeed. we lack goals.

1.) 04 Apr 2021 14:08:50
I would look at Neto personally as he’s a proper winger and only going to get better. Sancho is the big name on everyone’s lips because he’s English but after seeing Werner and Havertz struggling to adjust it worries me with Sancho also.

2.) 04 Apr 2021 14:10:06
The thing with Pulisic is that he needs a run of games to find his form, but his injuries simply never allow that to happen.

This season whenever he has played, he's looked nothing like the player we saw at the back end of last season. I just don't ever see him being fit enough to consistently show his best on the pitch. He had the same problems at Dortmund.

Personally I'd cash in on him this summer, who replaces him though I'm really not sure.

3.) 04 Apr 2021 21:28:20
I think it’s tightness of hamstring not quite a hamstring tear. He should be ok in a week and some days or less.

My question about Pulisic is: is his hamstring reoccurrence issues something that can be solved or corrected with surgery; something he will outgrow; or is it something that Chelsea has got to live with all through his career?



01 Apr 2021 15:43:07
Will spurs ever sell us kane. vi think we should try to sign him if possible. if we can't get Halaand I think we should chase Jane . he would improve us. maybe still want London could work for us. this is because the Manchester clubs have been linked to him recently.

1.) 01 Apr 2021 19:09:29
Kane or Lukaku prem proven. None of these bundesliga lot who take ages to settle. Havertz will be class eventually unfortunately I’ve already give up on Timo. No excuses for them misses no matter how bad you’re form is.

2.) 01 Apr 2021 19:54:45
If you look on city page you get good info on strikers from ed02
I asked about calvert lewin to on Everton page and at this time there is no one interested in him
But City page is definitely worth a look.



01 Apr 2021 07:06:42
We must sign a striker this summer. each time I watch Werner he continues to confirm he's not a clinical finisher which makes it even imperative that we get in striker Halaand who can give us goal consistentlyand from little chances.
Harnessing our attack could be our undoing vfor the rest if the season.

1.) 01 Apr 2021 08:44:22
Werner has been our best attacking force this season, even with all the misses. He does need a traditional 9 to play with though.

2.) 01 Apr 2021 08:56:11
If we can't get Haaland, we just need to go all out for a goal scorer pure and simple.

Kane, Ronaldo, Lukaku, Aguero (not sure his injury record is worth the risk) . But we just need someone who can score game in and game out!

Kane, would be a struggle to deal with Spurs. But whatever you think of Kane, he scores goals. Add his goals to us and we're a completely different team!

Ronaldo, supposedly available for 20m this summer. Yes he's aging and not the player of a few years ago. But he will still get you 20+ goals a season with his eyes closed.

Lukaku, been very good at Inter but I'm still not convinced about him. On his day unplayable, but he often goes missing

Aguero, a proven Premier League goalscorer but injuries are a huge concern. Would we even get enough game time out of him? He'd be a gamble.

3.) 01 Apr 2021 09:48:50
We will almost certainly be signing one or maybe two strikers this season.

I would like Haaland. ’ The amounts mentioned are eye watering but that’s up to the club to decide and I’m happy with that.

4.) 01 Apr 2021 12:14:42
Leaving aside English prejudice, I was never keen on us buying Chilwell he is average and we could have done a lot better for the money we spent on him.

5.) 01 Apr 2021 12:52:46
Werner will come me good . He just needs confidence and a bit of calm in front of goal. He snatches the chances he gets but he does a lot of work for us upfront. Dare I say Reminds me of Torres.

Hopefully TT gets him right and scoring frequently.


6.) 01 Apr 2021 12:56:47
So hard to get a striker who is not proven in the pl to ask him to come out all guns blazing. Aguero is a no no for me . age and injury issues plus wages.

If Kane goes to city, might as well give the title to city again.

Lukaku or Ronaldo still doesn't fit our style . We have a possession based game . So hard to get Haaland.

I truly don't know which striker suits us to be honest.

7.) 01 Apr 2021 13:23:35
I think Kane would really do well at City dereryk bu if he does leave I think he will be going to Utd.

My guess is The Spuds would like one or two players from Surrey Utd and some cash and that might work for Utd as well.

8.) 01 Apr 2021 14:08:20
Tom, Id Still fancy our chances with Kane at utd rather than city. UTD with Ole aren't title winning and that makes me confident (unless they change their manager) .

with FFP not in the picture, i think (not sure) ones who have the money will spend to bring in talent . utd city and hopefully us will be willing to splash the cash.

currently utd city and us need a striker desperately for next season . can add liverpool to the mix but Jota is some signing for them.

I have serious doubts who will fit our play and make us bridge that gap to the title? Tom . do u have that player in mind and why?

{Ed077's Note - FFP is still in picture. Some of the rules are getting changed.}

9.) 01 Apr 2021 14:26:57
That is my problem dereryk.

I want Haaland because he looks and plays like a total beast. I think we are to nice, if that makes sense and a Costa or Drogba type player will do for me.

I don’t want Lukaku for the reasons I’ve stated many times and after that I’m struggling.

10.) 01 Apr 2021 14:45:28
I'd agree Tom, not too many out there but Haaland . someone mentioned Nunez but that's also unlikely.

Ed077 mentioned ffp is still in the picture but I still think utd city will have the money to spend this summer window.

11.) 01 Apr 2021 15:02:39
I should have added Kane dereryk but that’s never going to happen.



24 Mar 2021 18:20:36
About Halaand and some pessimism from some posters that we either don't stand a chance for him.
Imo I'm sure marina has swung into pilling necessary strings for the transfer. it will happen and may take Kai pattern where against certain perceived odds we quickly became favorite until it happens. i feel it's a kind of transfer RA likes to pull. he knows we need a super star striker again and Halaand maybe one around now that may not come along regularly. I have a feeling that Halaand is doable and likely because we look more financially stable than many big clubs as a result of cv. He is a kind of marque signings that RA pulls.

I would test the keeper search now with Mendy having proved good enough and a a shrrwf signing. a back up should be targeted instead.

I would snap their hands off immediately. not that Emerson has been a regular and hakimi is a class playercsn also evore. Much like Alonso dom needed for how TT play. good enough to replace CA and provide the needed motivation for Reece James. Big teams have options in all the positions.

05 Apr 2021 19:05:11
May I ask for the midfield. is TT satisfied with what we have or does it depend on ok n if anyone who leaves will be replaced. any specific players looked at for midfield additions regardless.

{Ed002's Note - Clearly if players who are part of the first team squad are to leave they will be replaced with players from the U23 or youth set up, or players will be purchased.}

27 Mar 2021 17:01:32
From few times u have watched him. he has beastly approach t scoring goals. He looks a fox in the box. i only feel in a while we haven't got replacement for a striker that can score consistently. he's also young and could turn out securing for the future Ed you may also share your thoughts here.

In the Case of both of them leaving, we should look for 2 strikers. U would like aguero to be one of them. This casts doubt about werner. its true he needs time but his in efficiencies are just not encouraging. my choice of aguero is for the obvious reasons. and then a specialist or an out and out striker like Halaand. Tammy will come along but will take a few years but we need a quick fix.

12 Apr 2021 15:41:09
Tomb mate Halaand will happen just remember I was this optimistic. Again aguero would be a good acquisition. he's EPL proven and I'm sure we can manage his injury worries better which will make him even more useful an Halaand could lrean from him especially about the EPLand allow for tactical switches but I will like a dynamic cm. if RB is not sold permanently he should be brought back as he TT can touch out a player we have all wanted. can shoot but not sure of his passes.

12 Apr 2021 05:45:05
Halaand is a must for me as he can be 35 goals striker for now and in the future. chelsea of the old would get Agueri regardless, on free and could make a difference anytime. I will like a dynamic midfielder who can pass and shoot to create for the attackers because we don't have that player that distribute ball across the attacking lines. as for Kai, he would provide options and there are so many matches to be played, even ifhe was was supposed to claim a spot. He will come a life at some point.
So me being greedy will replace giriud with aguero and get Halaand and a midfilder with different attribute like forward passing and shooting and let j5 get his Italy wish.

Except we are unlucky like The WBA game we shall surmount Leicester and the hammers to make the top 4 finish regardless of EPL experience. besides we are still th dark horse in UCL this season, not banking on it though but we can pull it off.

{Ed077's Note - btw I mean I too think top 4 is in your hands like GS but dont agree on 2nd best squad part..}

Halaand is a specialist goalscorer and beastly too mbampe is slightly overrated I'mo. his hype. Is similar to British players. haland is more needed for me. We also need to ressuffle our attack because they don't seem to deliver. im worried werner. patsob Daka should also considered as he's within 20m.
