Good afternoon Ed002; please is Chelsea interested in F. Mendy of Real Madrid?

obinna 123

{Ed002's Note - No, Chelsea has not made any approach for Mendy. They have no need for another LB at this time.}

1.) 23 Oct 2021 23:15:05
Thank you Ed;

2.) 26 Oct 2021 15:17:52
why would Chelsea need a LB Obinna?

3.) 26 Oct 2021 19:24:53
Wheelycfc; If Marcos Alonso were to leave, I presume Chelsea will be interested in a left back.

Good evening Ed002; please is Chelsea interested in Jurrien Timber?

obinna 123

{Ed002's Note - Jurrien Timber (CB) Monaco have identified the player as a target andd ioffer a route to first team football but it would be seen as a sideways step. An ex-Chelsea player and advisor to the club has spoken with his agent and has recommended the player to Chelsea - but the club would not be able to offer first team football in the short term which is why the likes of Tomori, Guehi and Dynel Simeu moved on. Chelsea have two youngsters on the fringes of the first team and space would be an issue as the focus is on a starter. Barcelona have a scout in Amsterdam who has been pushing the club to look to Timber instead of another option. Spurs have had a scout attending the Ajax and Jong Ajax games and he has alerted Spurs to the player.}{

Thank you.

2.) 15 Sep 2021 15:41:03
Hi Ed002, who are the 2 youngsters on the fringe of 1st team action?

{Ed002's Note - Mbuyamba and Sarr.}



23 Aug 2021 01:29:53
Good morning Ed002; wishing you a great week ahead. Please is Chelsea interested in Tajon Buchanan?

obinna 123

{Ed002's Note - Tajon Buchanan (RW) Augsberg knew that they would need a replacement for Marco Richter this summer and have had two offers rejected for the New England Revolution player who is open to a move to the Bundesliga, but perhaps not until next summer. He was one of two players considered as Hudson-Odoi replacements by Chelsea after a recommendation by an ex-player. Lens, PSV and Metz have made enquiries and there is an interesting proposal from a new MLS franchise which has a Sporting Director with a great ability in identifying very talented youngsters.}

any truth we bid £8m ed002 thanks.

{Ed002's Note - See above, or below.}

Hi Ed what midfielder are we currently pushing to sign since you mentioned that the prime targets are deemed not for sale like tchoumani. Kounde seem to be the one we want now. please do TT want to use him in the middle if he signs. Just would like your clarification
Again you also mentioned cfc would like to bring in another striker and not just one as in lukaku especially if girondel and tammy leave. is it still the case or something has changed because there seem no talk about another striker.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea would like Aurelien Tchouameni but Monaco are not keen to sell. I don't know what you mean by "middle" for Kounde. I said Chelsea would like to avoid adding another striker and they have also allowed Ugbo to leave.}

4.) 24 Aug 2021 11:25:34
Could Monaco's stance change if they were knocked out of the UCL this week?

{Ed002's Note - Why?}

5.) 24 Aug 2021 13:21:01

{Ed002's Note - No.}



06 Aug 2021 09:44:55
Seems Tammy Abraham is the one that has been offered for the Lukaku deal according to Matt Law. Better for Abraham, I must confess.

obinna 123

1.) 06 Aug 2021 11:29:40
Seems unlikely if they are selling Lukaku for financial reasons surely?



04 Aug 2021 17:26:12
Good afternoon Ed002; please if Chelsea doesn't sell Zouma, does it mean the Kounde deal is off?

obinna 123

{Ed002's Note - Space will be made.}

1.) 04 Aug 2021 18:14:32
Thank you my man.

2.) 04 Aug 2021 18:20:28
Good to hear! Kounte is a fantastic player.

I think Chelsea had no business loosing this game against Manchester City, the worst I saw us getting was a draw; I think TT got it wrong with his starting eleven today: by starting three central defensive midfielders (Kante, Kovacic and Jorginho) at the same time.

I won't say I was sceltical about somethings about us before now, but somethings puzzled me in the course of the game, like:

* Why play a defensive 3-5-2 at home against a team that we have better winning form against and when clearly all the victories that Chelsea had against Manchester City last season was because Chelsea were able to attack Manchester City?

* Why didn't TT stick to the tactics that always given him result against Manchester City?
TT had to know that Chelsea beating Manchester City has always been down to tiny details- like his wingbacks (Alonso and Azpilicueta) weren't mobile. We all know that Wing backs are clearly more ideal for a 3- at the back formation than fullbacks- cos their mobility brings a balance to the attack or else it becomes too defensive- which we were today until we conceded the goal. I wonder the wisdom behind using Alonso ahead of Chilwell and taking out James instead of Azpilicueta when Chelsea was a goal down.

* What is the reasoning behind using a Lukaku and Werner partnership in attack against a Manchester City defence that's clearly our strongest opponent when the Lukaku-Werner partnership have not been used before against any team in the course of 90mins?

Let’s say James came off injured, we needed mobility in the wingback.

2.) 25 Sep 2021 19:50:51
I’m not a fan of Alonso so my opinion will always be biased but mobility and Alonso don’t generally go hand in hand but he has played well so far this season.

3.) 25 Sep 2021 19:51:15
Obinna, I understand your frustration; this was a good lesson for us. As things turned out it wasn’t too bad for us with Utd and Liverpool dropping points. You are right our midfield is too defensive, Kova, Jorginho and Kante are never going to score a significant number of goals. We lack a creative midfielder. It proves we are not the finished article. On the positive side, TT is a good coach and will hopefully make some tweaks in tactics and personnel. ”.

4.) 25 Sep 2021 21:01:12
You are right Jimbo; it was indeed a good lesson for us.



18 Sep 2021 15:50:25
I strongly feel Livramento will be the first player that Marina will sign back if we continue with 3-4-3/ 3-4-2-1 formation in 2-3 years time cos the boy has got a future (in RB/ RWB position.

obinna 123

1.) 18 Sep 2021 17:30:25
He has been named young player of the season for a very good reason.
But the thing is, he is behind James and if both continue to grow, I still can't see him overlap James.
He is a fantastic player nonetheless.

2.) 18 Sep 2021 17:56:23
Ashk TBH I think Reece’s development has stalled he has become a bit predictable and passes back a lot when in good attacking position.
On a completely separate note, I read today that when TT was in France he paid for his housekeeper’s son’s operation and bought her a villa in her homeland. I know people will say he is not short of a Bob or two but still a very nice thing to do.

3.) 18 Sep 2021 18:28:06
I haven't picked up on that Jimbo, but I think some of it is understandable against defensive opponents.
One area I think he could still grow in and do better is his defensive awareness and doing less mistakes.

Jimbo I have read that too, it's a very nice thing to do.

4.) 18 Sep 2021 21:54:19
A teacher once told me that: learning starts with confusion at times, so when you see him (someone) looking like his/ her performance/ development has dropped off or stalled, give it time, it will fall back into place and he or she will become better than before.

5.) 19 Sep 2021 08:21:51
James was previously guilty of crossing into great spaces, but without a Chelsea player in them; which often resulted in handing possession to the opposition and counter attacks.

It might not be highlight reel worth. But, if anything, his reluctance to simply toss it into the mixer, be patient, work the ball back to someone and keep possession, shows his game is maturing.

I'm sure the more he plays with Lukaku, the more we'll see them link up and James feeding him with crosses.

6.) 19 Sep 2021 09:24:09
Good observations J.



17 Sep 2021 12:05:56
One striker that Chelsea should start preparing for (in the future) is Victor Osimhen of Napoli. He is completely the CHELSEA KIND of striker. When I say 'completely’: I mean, in totality, Osimhen is born to suit Chelsea.
The boy’s genetics is specifically stranded for.

obinna 123

1.) 17 Sep 2021 12:37:14
The boy’s DNA is stranded with Chelsea’s amino acids. Born-Chelsea player.

2.) 17 Sep 2021 12:38:48
Cost €70m to go to Napoli, can you imagine what they’d want, there apparently a nightmare to deal
Woth at best of times, kid looks look,

3.) 17 Sep 2021 20:27:17
Think of him as a project in 2-3 years time.

4.) 17 Sep 2021 22:06:52
ED02, are Chelsea interested in this player?

{Ed002's Note - No. It is simply another random name.}

5.) 18 Sep 2021 12:31:16
Regardless of his 2 goals this week Osimhen's actual scoring record is very poor.

6.) 18 Sep 2021 15:57:56
JamieP; the goals surely will come for Osimhen- from this season (I have no doubt about that cos he’s a born goal scorer) . I think if you sit down and watch him you see how good a CF he is and how he can be well suited to Chelsea in the future.



02 Sep 2021 14:23:23
Good morning Eds; please do you know when Reece James will return to action, in other wards, how many games is he suspended for?

obinna 123

{Ed002's Note - He will be suspended for one game.}

1.) 02 Sep 2021 14:35:16
Thanks Ed.



01 Sep 2021 10:44:20
🙏 thanks and big ups to Ed002 and all the other Eds, you are all amazing people. God bless you all.

Besides the fact that Tchouameni and Rice are good at shielding the back four, my biggest issue with Rice as a central defensive midfielder is his ability on the ball. His control on the ball isn’t as good as Tchouameni’s. I think ball control is the first and most fundamental attribute of a midfielder. Tchouameni’s ease of ball control and and flair on the ball makes him a better player for me. Rice clearly has more Leadership on the field but Tchouameni can develop that over time.

NB: Personally, the first quality I look out for in a midfielder is his ball control in tight space; then passing ability etc.

We have been doing this comparison on this site for some months now and my stance still remains that I will take Tchouameni a thousand times over Declan Rice.

That’s if Manchester City doesn’t pay £50m for him before his buyback clause kicks in.

J. ; it doesn’t work like that completely. The set of players on that team is a thousand times better than the Malmo players but some of them aren’t in a great place at the moment and we just have to win this match; you can see what I mean from the line up that Tuchel has picked.

All them attacking midfielders are playing below par at the moment, they are part of the reason why Lukaku seem to be struggling at the moment.

I think Tuchel is 100% correct with his comments about the guy, Havertz has to wake up, he has being sleeping since after the game against Liverpool. He can do more what he’s doing at the moment. Perhaps, a bit of benching will help him.
