Are we still interested in milikivic savic? Saw where you mentioned him on the European page that fio may accept a bid of 40- 50euro which I find interesting considering how highly regarded few seasons ago.
So we hold any serious interest in him or just in case he becomes available.

1.) 25 May 2021 10:36:31
At that price, I would gladly let Jorginho go for SMS.

2.) 25 May 2021 14:55:01
Neves is said to be available for 35m.
I'd say let's replace both Jorgi and Kova.

3.) 25 May 2021 15:48:08
Kovacic too?



08 May 2021 07:28:28
Hi Ed, vis lewandowski leaving Bayern Munich this summer. wil Chelsea be interested to sign him.

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't hold your breath.}



10 Mar 2021 07:33:14
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.}

1.) 10 Mar 2021 11:45:51
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.

11.) 11 Mar 2021 12:50:57
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.

After watching the game last night I think a certain kind of midfielder now if we are to survive at the top. bG can't be relied on yet and we need one with certain attributes to knit the team. J5 was looking to convincing many since TT took over but has once again reminded us that he's not what we really need in middle. he can't pass forward and is vulnerable when pressed. we need a passer in the middle who is also versatile to play with Kante.
zouma us looking the cb that dmay be sold to make the way for another needed cb unfortunately. Very clumsy in the ball. lacks technicality.
Three areas I would like us to address versatile striker, cm and a cb. J5 should be the one to make way in the middle. besides he had wanted to return to Italy. do we still have interest in SMS?



06 May 2021 09:28:20
I'm sure some big clubs will come in seriously for Kante and we should never sell. he's a special breed and the best at what he does. in solidarity to non attacking players Kante should win the balloon d orfo this year if espcially we win the UCL. suddenly j 5 has become good because of a powerhouse with him.
U don't know if we're interested but aguero for free will make a lot of sense. he would thrive in our pattern give other options to the coach who's has affinity for tactical changes. this I dmea. We can still sign main striker. anither striker may certainly need time in the EPL.

1.) 06 May 2021 09:34:30
Chelsea are a big club.

Kante is going nowhere.

2.) 06 May 2021 09:35:27
Can’t see anyone being able to afford him nor could I imagine the club considering a sale he seems happy too a world beater him pure class.

3.) 06 May 2021 09:43:19
As it looks likely that both Giroud and TA will be leaving, and there is no young CF ready yet to step up from the youth team, we will need to be bringing 2 strikers - would love to see Aguero but think he might be Barcelona bound.



24 Apr 2021 07:19:33
Are Chelsea looking to sign belloti. i want ask again if things are now clearer at Chelsea on transfers for possible updates.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed.}

1.) 24 Apr 2021 16:55:31
Ed I only wanted to confirm as per your insinuations few weeks ago that in about 3 weeks from then things might become clearer in terms of transfer planswhen one of us asked about any possible update. sorry if you are not cool with taking you back. im itching to know the plans going forward.

{Ed002's Note - I am not providing a Sharkopod for Chelsea any longer.}



21 Apr 2021 06:53:44
Away from the house esl, please is our transfer plans clearer to you now for possible update.
Thanks and have a great day.

{Ed002's Note - No final decisions have been made.}



06 Apr 2021 19:36:51
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.}

Imo we need a striker and cm with knack for passing forward to break down opposition and shoot for on distance rather than a dm. that rules out rice. we are not in desperate need for a dm, we have ngolo for now except like Ashk21 and tomb who would sell ngolo for rice. as for traore I don't see why we need himexcept the manager prefers him. in an ideal world we should use one of our lwb to get hakimi and cash ideal replacement for ca.

I would rather get even an unproven striker than lukaku and Werner up top. the structure is already there that chances will be availed the striker but could be depressing to waste them in a bizzaire manner. we only need a clinical finisher twith good first touch and he would always have chances to take. the fio guy can do it for me instead of lukaku.
We're going to have teams sit back on us next season and we need a fabregas kind or good passer to break teams down. this is where hazard return could be necessary. ed please in the mood of our success in Europe, kindly help us with updates especially in the striker front's and others if possible. thanks.

Imo he's more suited to us and would like another striker who's hardworking and get mixed up with with other players and good on the ball For certain matches where lukaku is isolated. I realised Warner is a weapon that we are not properly used with other attackers o open up spaces in the opposition back line. He misses chances but he forces chances for himself by being in the position to score. We never know why we won ucl last season but Warner was very instrumental in the attack. Was thinking we would go for agreeing hen I was clear e was leaving city. Would have uplifted us more with the kind of attack we have. we don't necessarily need one wo just stand around the box waiting for ball to score. A mobile striker strtches defences to both flanks even t the middle to open up spaces for other and make the attack more fluid and dynamic. Making it difficult for defenders to isolate the striker In bug games.

Standard have always enjoyed your posts like Jackson before he took break but this one is definitely so English biases. Note Sterling will be very expensive for obvious reasons. The obsession about rice us becoming so irritating like he has but right to play for Chelsea.

If it must be English then it has to Bellingham or even Philips Chelsea will be cheaper than Sterling and I know who to choose between the two. Please let us drop this rice obsession here it's boring and irritating now to always mention him even when we never showed serious interest. We are never going to sign rice because there will be a better value for money elsewhere for the amount that will be required to buy him English premium will deter many clubs. united seem to want another company but still don't see value for money in him.

i don't have issues with English players but they are ridiculously expensive and given privileges not given to others who have football qualities. English players are overhyped. Just look at rudigar who's asking for 200k but even odo is on 120k or more, Chilwell etc gets kings sum rudigar is far more important to this team than both.

I would try to give cheese and let go of ziyech. tt should fit tomorrow with lukaku as he lights up our attack and brings. I will take a Warner with 15 goals to lukaku because he drag out defenders out of positions with his runs. our midfielders don't take advantage of his pace and movements. Try set him up on the run by playing it in-between defenders and the keeper. Like Pedro he's a willing runner but only lack technicalities and finishing.

I disagree that Chilwell is far better than alonso. Depends o the opposition and state of the game. If we are chasing goals alonso offer more but if we are defending a lead or trying to see out a game Chilwell maybe be preferred . one is faster and maybe little more defensive but alonso has a better football brains. alobso can play as a striker because he's that vasatile and better on the ball and keeps possession.

I think very important players were missing like reece and if jabte is played up front takes away what he brings to the team. He's very effective when he's played in the middle where he face the opposition attack and no balls are played behind. i believe City over ran us because there wasn't enough steel in the middle to brake up the balls and collecting lose balls. Again tt should try to harness the attack the same way he did in the defence. Lukaku always isolated. We don't drive the balls into the box often. I believe we can hut our stride of last season when all players are back and fit. Like our defense is more efficient when ca play ib the right defence and reeece on rwb. reece compensate for ca loss of pace with his energy and doggedness.
I would like TT give saul a run of games to adapt and regain sharpness and see what he can bring to the team because obviously we need a midfielder with a different attributes especially creativity and forward balls.
