Hi Ed can I ask does a transfer offer really go as the news make it sound. As in chelsea first bid of x amount plus tammy or is it more just a discussion that chelsea have said this is an option to BD.


{Ed002's Note - It will be a point of discussion.}

1.) 15 Jul 2021 20:37:09
Thanks Ed.

It just the papers make it sound like a fax is sent.
"Hi £100mil plus tammy"

2.) 15 Jul 2021 21:21:33
lol could u imagine.

3.) 15 Jul 2021 23:20:18
Think their fax machine is broken.



07 Jul 2021 13:04:21
Hi ed002

Any truth in the bid of 150 million being put in for haaland?


{Ed002's Note - Chelsea have and interest in Haaland and there have been discussions.}

1.) 07 Jul 2021 14:35:00
ed002 in your opinion with everything you know about the deal, do you think we will sign haaland thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to make predictions but Chelsea will do what they can or turn elsewhere.}

2.) 07 Jul 2021 17:42:30
Surely if Dortmund make it clear they won’t be selling and / or price to high they’ll be no official bid,

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what you mean by an "offical bid" but Chelsea and Dortmund have been talking.}

3.) 07 Jul 2021 18:17:00
For some reason I feel pretty confident this deal will go ahead. I just really hope young Charlie Webster doesn’t become a part of it. He really looks a special talent and would hate the club to lose him. Are Dortmund still interested in him Ed or trying to include him in any potential future deal?

{Ed002's Note - They maintain an interest but he won't be part of any transaction.}

4.) 07 Jul 2021 18:27:58
I mean the term official bid really Ed, like sky sports and journos online always say, “ chelsea lining up official bid “ makes no sense if talks between clubs are clear a deal can’t be made, well fingers crossed we can strike a deal, enjoy the football this evening Ed,

{Ed002's Note - I have no idea what they have said or why they would try and distinguish between whatever and an "official"bid.}

5.) 07 Jul 2021 18:52:14
Please try not to get too entwined with the detail. It’s great to see Ed answering us. We know Chelsea like to do their business quietly and Marina is one of the best!

6.) 07 Jul 2021 19:33:05
Thank you for the reply Ed. I’m glad the club are holding firm over Webster .

7.) 08 Jul 2021 11:33:38
Ed002, would you be willing to shed any light on the finances of the deal?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}



17 Jun 2019 15:26:57
Any news on managerial front Ed's? Have you heard anything for us polite Chelsea fans?


{Ed001's Note - it looks sure to be Lampard, Chelsea are happy to pay the compensation and bring him in.}

1.) 17 Jun 2019 16:44:16
great something positive around the club for a change
wish him the best and let's stick by him through thick an thin

2.) 17 Jun 2019 17:12:13
That's a good one from the club. Thanks Ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}

3.) 17 Jun 2019 18:12:54
Praying they get ban froze and get frank off to a good start, rathe a two window ban after a window than before.

4.) 17 Jun 2019 18:37:52
To be honest I would risk the ban and settle for a top 6 finish if he could really get these youth players in.

I know people will say you cant, but just a vision from a u10 youth coach. Nothing better than seeing the development. Of our own players.

5.) 18 Jun 2019 07:51:21
It's a huge gamble with Frank which I think it is worth taking. However I hope it works because I'm sure the fans will revolt if it goes awry regardless of his legendary status.
I would wish him all the best and support him once he is appointed.
No matter whatever you think, I would not want us to serve the ban right away unless it's impossible to overturn.

6.) 18 Jun 2019 08:56:51
If I were you Matt, I won't expect anything from Chelsea. The future is very pregnant and no one knows what it will give birth to.



22 Jul 2018 19:50:37
Any truth to us accepting a bid for Willian?


1.) 22 Jul 2018 20:55:01
I hope so 😂.

2.) 23 Jul 2018 07:05:32
just heard it myself apparently done deal.

3.) 23 Jul 2018 07:09:59
There's no smoke without fire. If Chelsea's interest for Martial gathered pace at this time then just maybe we would have accepted or are close to accepting a bid for Willian.

4.) 23 Jul 2018 11:42:20
Interested by the 3 dislikes on my comment. Are people unhappy with the news of us selling Willian for what is rumoured to be £67m? Personally that’s a massive fee for a 29 year old that has never been consistent for us anyway. 15/ 16 when he was player of the year everyone was that poor that he had it sewn up by November and really wasn’t good enough to win player of the year any other season if he performed like that. Provided it’s reinvested into a Leon Bailey or Martial I’m very happy with this news.

5.) 23 Jul 2018 12:30:13
i'd take the money and buy bailey or insigne personally myself.



04 Jan 2016 18:21:29
Hi ed I know from what you have said that we are interested in Teixera but does that mean any of our players look like they would leave as we would have a few players in his position.


{Ed002's Note - I would not get carried away with "position" but a couple of the returning loanees will go out on loan, one or two might leave and a couple of others out on loan will not be returning.}

1.) 05 Jan 2016 11:38:58
Will Teixera go straight into the squad or out on loan?

{Ed002's Note - In to the squad.}

2.) 05 Jan 2016 12:12:49
Thanks ed.

Afternoon Ed hope you are well.

I am pretty sure I know the answer but if we do get lukaku back what's the chances of you giving us the info on what happened before for people at the club not willing to take him back.

Obviously the club see that as water under the bridge so would love to know.


{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant.}

1.) 03 Aug 2021 17:21:27
Knew I would get that. Worth a try thanks anyway.



07 Feb 2021 19:58:34
Mount poor in the final 3rd.




19 Jan 2021 21:45:51
Doesnt matter if you want lampard to stay or not this is so embarrassing. There is no choice other than having to go.

The question is. Is there a list of potential managers.


1.) 19 Jan 2021 21:50:33
Leicester are giving a rest to Maddison against us. cmon.

2.) 19 Jan 2021 21:53:42
Tony Pulis is available.

3.) 19 Jan 2021 21:53:44

4.) 19 Jan 2021 21:53:50

5.) 19 Jan 2021 22:03:17
Someone will say Jose sooner rather than later.

6.) 19 Jan 2021 22:13:56
The spurs manager is meant to know what he's doing.

7.) 19 Jan 2021 22:29:16
You should know gola!

8.) 19 Jan 2021 22:42:34
I didn't say it Tom lol.

9.) 19 Jan 2021 22:43:37
Shevchenko favoured by bookies and he has only managed a national team ie Ukraine not a club one. Not sure that there's much evifence yet that he could be any better than Frank.

We tried to accelerate rebuild with multiple new additions plus blending in youth but too much rotation between one game an next and particular in attack and midfield - sone forced by injury or suspension - has contributed to us looking so disjointed. So. many of opponents much more settled as ee should be by this stage of the season. Perhaps too. many options in attack not enough quality in midfield despite Mounts huge efforts and Kovacic coveringa lot of ground too.

Havertz disappointing tonight, CHO largely anonymous, Tammy not strong enough in hokd up play or in box, Pulisic still to het back to best.

This was a very depressing evening and think i will watch highlight of our miraculousxwin v Barcelona in semi final of Champions League 2012.

10.) 19 Jan 2021 22:45:23
Not on this site gola.

11.) 19 Jan 2021 23:06:12
Oh are you dredging up a post on spurs site when I said
I'd take Jose over Frank about 6 months ago lol your really trying tonight Tom mate.

12.) 19 Jan 2021 23:23:51
Would for sure take allegri any day.

An amazing manager with Italian passion, may be as good or even better than Conte.

Been in 2 champs league finals so maybe can try to win it with us this season.

13.) 19 Jan 2021 23:27:20
So you did say it then?

14.) 20 Jan 2021 00:17:45
Absolutely Jose serial winner over Frank serial loser
Ermm you decide.



19 Jan 2021 21:11:50
Sorry but lampard out!

He is out of his depth!


1.) 19 Jan 2021 21:15:09
His well out of his depth. His drowned.

2.) 19 Jan 2021 21:35:04
So concerned with possession we don't create just backward passes all the time.



07 Dec 2020 09:38:17
I hope he proves me wrong but havertz is a massive worry for me in the premier league.

Alot of his passes, have been hospital passes not having enough weight on them putting the receiver under undue pressure.

He is also not great in 50/ 50 challenges. He seems to back out if someone looks like he is going full blooded.

I just think at this minute kovacic is probably better playing the second 8 with mount. Hopefully kicking havertz up the arse.


1.) 07 Dec 2020 10:21:46
I think he will be fine, apart from the first game snd being caught few times in possession his shown good signs, think the opposition and Timing didn’t help, just back from C.V., and played a team who pressed as fast and hard as Leeds was a surprise to him, second half v Leeds he was ok, we saw what he has v Sevilla, ramification was busting a gut and he strode forward and set giroud up . There will be certain games kovecic will be better suited to do the tracking back but I wouldn’t worry.

2.) 07 Dec 2020 10:27:48
He is the youngest of our major signings and it will likely take him until next season to fully adapt to the PL.
He should be used as an impact sub certainly against the tougher sides as Kova is playing well and offers more currently as you say.

3.) 07 Dec 2020 11:11:32
Patience will be needed with Havertz. You can see the quality in his touch, I'm 100% sure he'll be a quality player for us. At the moment though, I would be starting Kovacic.

Apparently he had pretty bad C.V. symptoms.

4.) 07 Dec 2020 12:41:52
Havertz will take a season to settle. Next year will be his breakthrough season I think similar to how Joao Felix has been for Atletico now.

5.) 07 Dec 2020 15:06:02
Very good player IMO. I have NO doubt he will be a top player at our club for years.

6.) 07 Dec 2020 17:33:50
There is no doubt at all that Havertz has all the skills to be a truly great player for us. Am sure he will adapt in time to greater pace and physicality of the EPL and given fixture list will get plenty of game time to do this sooner than later.

7.) 08 Dec 2020 09:36:05
I'm more concerned about Werner whos still adapting to the league, I would say. He's too wasteful and his technical ability is becoming a worry. He seems to be doing every other things right but his finishing remains a lot to be desired. Maybe I expected him to just adapt seemlessly or could playing in the attacking positions be also affecting him?

Thanks Ed appreciated.

Do you see him taking jorginho place in the squad then.

Him and kante.


{Ed001's Note - very welcome.

Once he is up to speed and Kante is fit, I would expect it to be those 2 as the first choice midfield. And it is, on paper anyway, a bloody good, great even, midfield.}

As always ed001 love your opinion on players.

What do you think of Saul and how do you think he will fit into our team?


{Ed001's Note - I love Saul, he is a fantastic player and can do pretty much anything on his day. He is a proper utility player as he can play pretty much any position. You can use him to sit behind say Kante or further forward in the central midfield. I think he was exactly what you needed. Get him playing to his best and he will be a fan favourite because he works his backside off and has quality to go with the workrate.}

Would you think we would make another offer ed?

Is it true alonso was added to the potential deal?


{Ed002's Note - Inter have been pressing Chelsea for Alonso, so yes.}

Midfield not good enough?
We just drew 1-1 with what is classed as one of the top 4 with that midfield and with 10 men.

Am sorry. I really like the bring youth through but! If it's true that Tammy wants playing time assurances for a new contract without putting 100% effort in then for me. He can be let go.

Look at the effort levels of mount when tuchel first came. He battled to show him he can't be dropped. If only everyone put that much hard work in.
