Ed,

Will John stones remain a Chelsea target despite Everton telling us that he isn't for sale? Do you think we will bid for him in either January or next summer? I like him as a player and would love him as a long term partner with zouma. Everton seemed pretty sure in the fact he isn't for sale but his transfer request surely suggests that long term he would rather join a bigger club.

Thanks

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea will not overpay for him. Right now the club has moved on. If he were to be available at a reasonable price in the future, possibly.}

Everton need a rain check if they think John Stones is going to retire their.
Stones will move on eventually and I reckon it will be next summer, its the question what club are going to pay a silly price for him.
Stones will want a move to a club that plays champions league football, it's very footballers dream.

Ay wheely, a rain check?? That saying has absolutely nothing to do with what u r saying, I think u mean a reality check, yano like Chelsea got when they thought they could buy stones even though he wasn't for sale haha?

Ed002 as Chelsea have picked up a lot of Brazilian kids is Lucas Lima from Santos one the club are keeping a eye on? As much is expected of him?

{Ed002's Note - There is, I think, some sort of agreement in place with Lyon. His agents got Feyenoord interested as well, but I think Lyon has something in place.}

Ed002, as I saw you did on the United page, could we possibly have your views on our transfer window dealings and also if there were any deals you think we should have done that we didn't look at etc.?
Thanks again.

{Ed002's Note - Pedro was purchased at a good price. Not sure about a wet Tuesday in February at Stoke but he will prove to be a very good buy. Begovic arrived and will provide excellent cover when required. Pantic is one for the future and much is expected of him. The same is true for Maneo and Nathan who will also stay on loan for at least a season. Falcao will be a good deal if Chelsea can get the best from him - I have a sneaking suspicion it will be away from home in the Champions League where we see the best of him. One of the reasons he was taken on loan is his ability to run across the defence and his timing - and that is what the club will look to get back - training hard apparently. Baba will start to appear more regularly in games as the season progresses - all signs are that he will slot right in with no period of transition. Djilobodji has been on Hillions list for a while and has been interesting a number of sides - he will be used as cover I would think but is very well thought of in France and was seen to be a real bargain by Chelsea. Hector came on the recommendation of his manager and Emanalo took a look at him. During the discussions for Piazon Mr Emanalo raised the subject of Hector again and a deal was struck.

In terms of what didn't happen. There were efforts last week to sign Marquinhos. Chelsea backed out of increasing their bid for Stones a lot lower and earlier than reported. The Abdennour deal was one of those completed during the meetings in Monaco last Thursday - he was not going to be moving to Chelsea. Again, Chelsea spoke with Juventus in Monaco with a view to agreeing the Pogba deal. Efforts continued most of yesterday but nothing could be finalised. About three weeks ago Chelsea dropped interest in bring in another goalkeeper (who turned down two offers and has gotten an injury). There was some disappointment that Donsah could not get agreed as well.}

Hey Ed002, glad you're posting again, what of Kenedy? What do you make of it? Thought he was probably the best piece of business from us great price and looks like under the right guidance could be quite the player for us and Brazil. Thanks for yesterday too and the whole window by Ed018 really appreciated. Looking forward to talking football with you guys and fellow posters.

{Ed002's Note - Sorry I missed him. Kenedy is an excellent buy and will be in the first team squad this season. There was a lot of interest in him from elsewhere and Chelsea has another little gem with him.}

Great insight ed thanks

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Sep 2015 18:44:04
Fantastic Ed, thanks very much and very interesting to see the comments made on Falcao, Dijilobdji and Hector. I noticed on the United page you mentioned they tried to get Kenedy in; can I ask did any other teams besides us and them try for him (if so which) and also how well he is regarded. Finally, did anyone have any interest in Jean Kevin Augustin at PSG as I believe he is highly regarded also.
Thanks again!

{Ed002's Note - Augustin is just a kid, he won't be going anywhere.}

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Sep 2015 18:44:16
Thanks Ed for that a great info. Whoa, we missed missed your insight during the window, but all thanks to Ed018 who gave us a relief. I look forward to a much better window with your insights.

Good to have you around Ed002 and thanks to Ed018 for your good work too throughout the transfer market.Pls I will like to know Ed002 if the club is still interested in Donsah, maybe still try for him. might the the answer to our midfield challenge.like the look of him. the new beast.(Essien)

03 Sep 2015 10:50:07

Thats a shame Ed. Thanks for your information today. I presume that's the window shut for us or is there still a move or two on the cards?

Frustrating, knowing Barcelona's wage bill is larger than ours too when the bidding for Pogba starts again.

01 Sep 2015 16:50:39
I am gutted but would like to thank all the eds for their patience and work today and all other times. I am planning on having a pizza and a glass/bottle of wine tonight to help me forget this window. The only. Police I see is that we should see more youth players given a chance. If we could just not see mikel in the team/bench any more I think I will just see this season as a stop gap.

Hey tweeted that on the 22nd of August. Learn to read.

Well I just saw it on a chelsea forum so assumed it was recent.

Alarmingly quiet on here by the EDs, and with only an hour and a half to go. Looks over anyway

{Ed002's Note - He is wrong in the detail, but it is effectively over now.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 16:46:09
Ok, we tried but failed. It was always a long shot as Pogba wants Barca and Juve didn't want to sell. It was always going to take silly money in fees and wages to get him and I think it may be a blessing in disguise. It's good to know that we've got that sort of money available and means we can compete for any player who becomes available.
Right, let's move on and get back to football.

Agree2 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 12:49:28
my favourite club is Chelsea however, I am from Aberdeen and watch a lot of there games. I have just seen on ssn that we are away to sign Michael hector. i'm not sure how well known he is down in England but I can assure you up here in Scotland he is very, very well regarded. not looking at a replacement for terry or cahill or iva but all the same with some good advice and coaches he could be a big surprise.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

01 Sep 2015 12:55:02
Care to give us some more info on him? I presume he's a centre back, but what's his age etc?
Cheers mate :)

Agree0 Disagree1

01 Sep 2015 13:13:23
So it seems from what we've read/heard that we wanted to sign John Stones for £38m and Paul Pogba for £72m. Yet we've ended up with 2 unknown players. Costing us £7m lol. Maybe Roman, Marina, has something up their sleeve!

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 13:13:24
sure thing Jackson.

he's a young tall defender who has played CB and RB from what I know.
age - 23
height - 6'4"
nationality - English
country represented - Jamaica
he has had as many loan moves as the whole of the Chelsea youth team and has only just established himself at Reading this last year making 41 appearances. I remember him as being quite pacey for a CB and good in the air. he only ever scored one goal in his 6 month stint at Aberdeen but it was a screamer and I was at the game;)he was due to return to Aberdeen but with a severe injury crisis at Reading he returned there, thus missing out on Aberdeens first trophy in several years. He did however travel to Glasgow to watch us win the cup. I don't remember seeing him in the stands but there were 40,000 of us(big deal in Scotland) and actually, I can't remember much of the game because of the drink! if you check his twitter I think you can find tweets from two years ago which highlight that he's a Chelsea fan.

I just had a scout around and interestingly some websites claim he can play CDM.

hope that helps

Agree3 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 13:29:50
Not heard of hector but looking through his Twitter account looks like he's a big Chelsea fan so there's at least one plus. Let's hope these players are actually good enough to put pressure on first 11.

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 13:56:33
Cheers mate :-)

Agree2 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 14:57:15
This one is bizarre. If you look at his career in lower leagues and loans,at 23 he has certainly not caught the imagination of anyone and given the number of youngsters we have on loan and those knocking on the door of the main squad, you cannot help wondering why we appear to have done what we have recommendation or not. With Papys you can make a decent case of a well considered gamble for little outlay but the indication is we have offered the same money for Hector!

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 16:28:39
I believe if your not in or around the first team at the age of 23 then your never getting in. Total waste of time signing hector then loaning him back out. Moses signs a contract extension just so his value doesn't go down for when he's sold next season. A very average window for a team that thinks it's good enough to win champions league. Pedro was a good signing but too much squad strengthening instead of improving the first 11.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 11:46:47
Hi Ed002, so nice to have you back. Just wanted to ask about John Stones. Reports of Everton signing a new defender today. Is stones transfer still possible(hoping Everton didn't wanna discuss till they bought a replacement for a reasonable price) or is it unrelated.
Thanks

{Ed002's Note - All sorts of things are "possible" but Chelsea had already bid to a level they considered enough for him more than a week ago. They moved on and made an offer for someone else that was rejected.}

Believable0 Unbelievable0

01 Sep 2015 11:16:30
It's good to see ED02 back! ED18 did a pretty good job while he was away! Thanks guys!

Question: are we still looking to fill for the positions that we were trying since the beginning of this window? Has anything changed? I know Pogba is one we are trying based on your post below and Pappy might be for CB or holding midfield. Just wanted to understand the other positions since you said 2 or 3. Thanks!

{Ed002's Note - Well, Chelsea has given up on bringing another goalkeeper in. Aside from that it is the same positions as the club started the summer trying to fill - and most have been.}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

01 Sep 2015 12:15:45
ED0018 did a fantastic job while Ed002 he was away!

I just hope everyone stops asking Ed002 for clarity when he has already explained issues time after time. It is what it is!
harassing Ed002 isn't going to ensure we get Pogba
its just going to drive him away again.

{Ed018's Note - exactly, I'm sure he will provide an update if something happens through out the day. No need to send in 50 questions about Pogba}

Agree1 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 12:22:59
I was going to say the same thing it's almost like people just want him to say the answer they want! Anyway less that 6 hours left! COYB

01 Sep 2015 09:18:43
My guess is that Papy Djilobodji is being signed more as defensive midfield cover than CB.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

01 Sep 2015 12:07:57
Factfile:

Name: Papy Djilobodji

Age: 26

Position: Centre-back, defensive midfield

Current club: Nantes

Nation: Senegal (12 caps)

What type of player is he?

Djilobodji has played in defensive midfield for Nantes previously, but is more at home in central defence.

At 6ft 4in, the Senegal player is a powerful but pacey left-footer and his stats from last season demonstrate his combative approach to the game.

Djilobodji ranked fourth in Ligue 1 for clearances in 2014/15 (8.3 per game) and in the top 10 for interceptions (3.3 per game). Only 16 players won more aerial duels per game than his 3.1 – in contrast, Chelsea's top players in this category last season were Gary Cahill with 3.3, followed by John Terry with 2.6.

The 26-year-old was also the top Nantes player in 2014/15, according to WhoScored.com's statistical rankings, demonstrating his consistency across his 30 starts for the club.

Nantes may have finished 14th in Ligue 1 last season as they continued to establish themselves in France's top flight following their promotion from Ligue 2 in 2012/13 but they recorded the fifth-best defensive record. Djilobodji played a key role, with the team conceding just 40 times in 38 games.

For 2.3 mill can't complain . If he does well then great, if he doesn't it's only a small fee.

that time of year again lads. It's becoming as important as birthdays Christmas's even Halloween ;) let's all enjoy it regardless off the out come of our business and let's keep the page active. Although it hasn't been a great window for us I haven't seen this page so active in a long long time which is great to see! Good to see ed18 really involved . Ed02 if you want to take pity on us loyal uninsulting posters maybe 1 update of anything you have for us all would be great and really appreciates COYB

Thanks ed02 once there making efforts to strengthen we can't ask for more than that, let's hope for a deadline day like we had when Torres signed! Never forget the buzz of that day

{Ed002's Note - Probably not the best example. As for Pogba, it will be difficult but the club are trying.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 08:20:09
Surely they've left it too late though Ed002? Is signing a big name player more difficult to sign say then a not such a big name?

{Ed002's Note - I don't understand the question. I have explained the club are making an effort and I have explained all summer that it will be difficult. Nothing has changed, it will be difficult. I am not going to keep saying this over and over.}

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 08:39:52
Probably not the best example no haha let's just say the buzz of the actual day not taking into account the horror of his Chelsea career

Italy window is shut and Juve couldn't get Hernandes from Inter. Releasing Pogba will be much more difficult. We left things too late.

Doe signed? followed him since he was playing with the U6's. looks like a real talent.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 10:06:39
Surprised nobody has bitten already but I can't help myself. I guess one of the other 2 players is the cb from France but any chance you could shed info on who a third target might be ed? I do find it slightly hopeful on pogba front that Juventus signed 2 more midfielders yesterday.

{Ed002's Note - Not right now.}

He can't be worse than Brana

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Sep 2015 10:14:06
hi Ed002 sorry if this sounds ignorant but what is the difficulty? is it trying to persuade the player to come to us or the fee Juventus are asking for?

{Ed002's Note - It will always be difficult to complete a transfer at such a significant price with a club that doesn't want to sell (but realise the price is the best they will get) and a player who needs to think very carefully about his expectations financially and his future, whilst there remains interest in him from elsewhere.}

He was keen on a move to Chelsea but seems to be very happy at Atletico for now. Also they've just spent (apparently) an amount on Martial that can rise up to 80 million euros, though that's probably peanuts for them and I'm pretty gutted he'll join them. I truly hate them with a passion.

Ed018. Have you got ANY info for us tonight? Seems we are all going pretty mad over what we've read or heard. And what's actually true or not? Better still any chance Ed002 can come back for one night only and give us an update on potential signings. I'm sure it would be very appreciated. Thanks again for the work this window

31 Aug 2015 21:44:21
If Remy went away, it would be Lyon. And we will get Lacazette in return.

Ed says the club have discussed with Remy if he want to play in Lyon or not. Cause it could be a trigger for us to get Lacazette.

Actually, Remy also needs to be present on the field mor often cause this year will be the year of Euro and he really wants to be in French final team.

However, I don't think it will happen.

31 Aug 2015 22:42:37
Hope this doesn't happen. I like Gomis a lot and I think Swansea is a great club for him. Fact is he wouldn't get match time for us. I guess ultimately that'd be a decision for him to make but players like him at clubs like Swansea is what makes the Premier League the best in the World.

Would be good to get a extra 2-3 players in if they can improve this team. This new cb we are supposedly getting ( not even going to try pronounce his name) doesn't seem to fit that bill, we all didn't hear of Dave before hand but with Dave we was after him all summer. This is a quick panic buy. In terms of pogba. Good to see the board trying but I'm not holding my breath

I think we will find Papy Djilobodji is back-up to the current team at £2.7m, no more. I saw him against PSG and he was run ragged although not his fault. Playing for an average team in an average league outside the top five clubs it is difficult to impress. I do wonder if we have purchased him so quickly because Ivanovic will be on his way in this transfer window.

What qualities does he have Frensham?

Mc93: Sadly, I never really focused on him anymore than the other Nantes players. PSG won 5-0 and it was Ibrahimovic I was watching more than anyone, I think he scored two, maybe three. All I can tell you is what can be found elsewhere, he was very tall, decent in the air and athletic, looked a lot like Kurt Zouma but as I said the defence was run ragged. Sorry but I never dreamt that Chelsea would sign anyone from Nantes!

Thanks for the reply Frensham! And I wouldn't of thought we would spend 3.5mill on a defender and think he would reassure our defence. He might who knows but i'm not optimistic.

Pogba not going to happen at all if you listen to Di Marzio and a few other journos on Twitter. Shame really. Hopefully we have others lined up. Any info on the players we are after Ed018?

{Ed018's Note - not at the moment}

Ed018, any further updates? For example do you know if Dijiboulji is seen as one of those two/three significant players? Is there any chance of Pogba? Or indeed do we have any alternatives in mind?

{Ed018's Note - nothing further at the moment}

Mc93 and other: Papy Djilobodji. I have done what everyone else has probably done also and looked at him on the internet. For the money and if Guy Hillion was involved, we might, just might have found someone that will surprise us. No comparison to the Premiership the league he is in but there was a lot to like and there was definitely a Zouma manner about him. Worth reserving judgement until he gets game time

Talks this morning of us agreeing a fee for papy djilobodji. A defender from nates . Never herd of him tbh has anyone else

An ok player I guess but not exactly a world class player which is what we need, Laporte or Varane is who we should really try for

Papy Djilobodji - a summer of being linked to world class young defenders and we potentially end up with Papy Djilobodji for £3.5m!! If these rumours are true, and Francois Piraux is reasonably reliable when it comes to France and Chelsea, I am entirely underwhelmed!

What next? We'll realise Pogba isn't going to move this summer and look to sign Joey Barton instead?

I think we are safe from Barton he's gone to burnley 🙈
