With Napoli holding out for a lot of money that Chelsea don't want to pay for the manager
Sarri seems to be the hardest word.

Wonder what sort money Cavani would go for, age and contact and high wages, PSG have to raise funds and have the mbappe money to pay out. Seeing costa other day we miss the fiery player. Maybe worth it if we could get cheap enough.

whats all your thoughts on england last night? as an irishman i want england to do well as i mentioned previously but you looked awfull last night it was 1 of the worst performances from any of the top teams so far. felt your whole team ran up the pitch when henderson was in posseion lingard an sterling ali all went in line with kane i stead of moving towards the ball an freeing up space for kane in behind it was really poor to watch.

i genuinely thought hendo alli lingard would dominate midfield which for me now is the main reason ye will moat certainly not win this tournament because yer midfield isn't good enough. i also thought walker been played cb instead of rwb is crazy u think he's better going forward than trippier an he's just won a league he has the no how in a winning team. rlc looked really bright he showed for it every time he could an made nice runs he looked very positive. him an rashford replaces ali an lingard for me all day long but its tough to pick dier may feel unlucky not to be starting.

I don’t think we played badly at all, dominated the game from start to finish and missed a hell of a lot of chances. Could easily have been 5-1. Sterling, Lingard, Alli and Maquire were pretty poor and I’d replace some if not all for the Panama game.

RLC certainly deserves to start as he was our brightest player second half and only played 10 mins.

We should’ve had 2 penalties if the Walker one was a penalty which would’ve really killed the game.

I see us getting quarters minimum and with a bit of luck maybe even further.

Irish tend to be bitter towards England I live in Belfast and it's so annoying especially when they all support English teams.

i think its a bit biased to say ye played well been honest ye have to hold yer hands up after that performance ye should be absoloutely thumping teams like that in a world cup but once u get out of the group stages anything can happen an as long as harry kane is fit ye have a chance. i thought ye created very little i thought ye were really poor to watch an the link up play was terrible its a real bad sign when ashley young is starting rose would give ye way more pace an energy same with walker on the right hand side id drop trippier stick cahill in cb to settle them down. just my thought don't mean to slate ye here but ali lingard an sterling id drop the 3 of um for panama game they were woefull.

i wouldn't say all irish i hope they do well given we watch them week in week out but ye were terrible v tunisia.

Magic you said out of all the top teams we were the worst thanks for saying we are a top team lol
Brazil Argentina Germany Spain Portugal none of them won
Belgium although won 3 0 they were shocking in first half
France struggled to beat Oz
So I don't see how we were the worst really don't the only team to totally dominate our match and win.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2018 21:31:08
We’re a pot 2 side haha. Beat panama and we’re basically out of the group and then as you say anything can happen. First 20 mins we tore them apart and completely outclassed them all game we just had poor finishing. Bear in mind we’re as close to Tunisia as we are to Belgium in the world rankings I think we did well.

Slowed down second half but despite the score we were still in control. Should’ve won by 3 or 4 and on another day we would have.

Increasingly looking like Sarri will be the new manager. Be interesting what ED01 thinks of him as a coach? I see he achieved 90 plus points with Napoli last Season with attacking football and Pep described Napoli as the best team City had faced all Season. If he does join us it will be nice to play attacking, possesion based football. Might encourage Hazard and Willian to stay as well.

{Ed001's Note - as a coach he is one of the best. He will just coach as well, he is happy to work with what he is given, which is great for the Chelsea system. Players love him and he produces brilliant football. What he needs now is to win a league title and he will have a platform to do so with Chelsea.}

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jun 2018 12:01:37
Thanks ED for your input. Exciting times ahead and great that he works with what he is given, as you say, suits the Chelsea system perfectly.

{Ed001's Note - exactly. Looks a good choice football-wise.}

I expect the hierarchy will be wetting themselves during press interviews. Do u know if he speaks English?

{Ed001's Note - I know he has taken English lessons but I don't know what kind of level he has reached. He might be completely fluent or completely useless, but he did attempt to learn it.}

do you think there will be an overhaul of the squad or much of the same with 1 or 2 added.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Jun 2018 17:28:22
When you look at the quality of the squad Magic we probably only need 2 or 3 to come in to freshen things up plus 1 or 2 loanees coming back and 1 or 2 youth players like Hudson-adoi coming in providing we can keep the top players like Kante, Hazard etc.

Couple of thoughts on ins/ outs managers etc. Regarding manager I would be happy with sarri. I think abramovich has long wanted us to play exciting football and that's certainly what Napoli have done last season. Half of our problem has been the quick success under Jose by playing with big physical players that just basically bullied whoever we come up against. Since winning the champions league we have still had that mindset but the players we have been bringing in have not been of that type (physical) . We have bought in players who are better on the ball but we never adapted as a club/ team to play that pressing quick football even though the players have played this way at previous clubs. I'm not sure if I'm getting my point across as well in words as I'd like but I'm sure you get the idea.
Now to ins and possible outs:
For the football possibly under sarri I'd like Alex telles or Alex Sandro to replace alonso. Christensen and rudiger I'd be happy with at centre back with azipilicueta at right back. Midfield of Kante, David Luiz and loftus cheek. Would to see milinkivic Savic from lazio in there for Luiz but can't see it happening. Front three of hazard, bailey and icardi would be the dream.
Long post but haven't posted for a while so appreciate the feedback and other options.

we just paid 30 odd million for emerson who looked really decent when played left back isn't a position we need to waist money on. evrey man amd his dog can see we need an out an out winger a partner for kante in midfield maybe a more attacking midfielder an a tlisman up front. don't under stand all this nonsense of bringing in left backs an centre halfs when they aren't pur weakest positions.

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Jun 2018 06:42:34
Emerson palmeiri is our best left back.

Agree0 1Disagree

19 Jun 2018 12:34:09
Why are none of you putting forward the idea that Luiz could partner Kante in midfield - save us a bucket-ooad of transfer budget.

Agree3 0Disagree

19 Jun 2018 20:00:39
I’d lobe to see Luiz back in midfield with Ruben and Kante. I would like Milinkovic-Savic but he looks Juve bound.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Jun 2018 21:36:34
Luiz is not a midfielder, other than a short period for us and a couple of other single games or subs appearances filling in for injuries etc, he has always been a centre half. When he is driven and happy he has proven to be a very good centre half, one of the best in the league.

A club of our standard should not be looking to fit square shapes into circle holes. Playing Luiz in midfield is doing just that.

What do we think Ed's, manager announcement in next 48hrs.

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea on timings mate.}

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2018 18:23:40
No worries, was clutching at straws asking anyway. But the idea of Zola being director of football or assist, what would ya thoughts be on that. assistant, yeah, knows the league and club legend and can relate to players. DOF . not sure about that at all, what experience has he got that role? If there’s any truth that is.

{Ed001's Note - as assistant manager I think he would be excellent. He is a very good foil between the manager and players. He is very well liked, trusted and has experience of both roles to help him act as a go between. He is also a very good coach.

As a DoF? There I would have my doubts. It is a totally different role and I think the same things that make him struggle as a manager would hold him back there.}

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2018 19:32:06
Are there any names discussed for the DoF position, Ed? It seems to have died down recently, with the only named banded about being Zola and Ballack.

{Ed001's Note - I actually thought it was going to be Ballack. That was my understanding.}

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Jun 2018 19:32:10
Agree mate, any truth in those Zola rumours, was reported he has been allowed to leave media duties and return to England Wednesday.

{Ed001's Note - I do know that the story has supposedly come from friends at BeIn Sports that he told he was needing to drop out of some work for them as he was talking over a role at Chelsea. Difficult to track that back from here though to find out if it is true. Qatar (where BeIn is based) are not exactly on good terms with the UAE, so it can be difficult to trace anything back.}

Hey Eds, I read about the charity match for the nurses. sounds like it was a lot of fun. Well done to the winners and awesome support that you guys received. Im in a different country, but if i was there i would have played or donated. Stay blessed brothers.

Can't remember last time there was this much excitement for England in a tournament, dunno if it's as no teams have looked great or what but I'm buzzing. Think a 3-0 with sterling and kane getting the goals, kane 2.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 jun 2018 12:54:54
matt and others.
england will be the next world champions.

Agree0 0Disagree

I think semi’s and the pressure will be our down fall. Kane and sterling will be the stars for us, good young team. Attacking wise good, maybe lack of experience Southgate ( who I wasn’t keen on ) so far done superb job and kept everyone grounded and always says right thing will help.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2018 00:24:12
semis😂😂 based on tonights performance ye have a lot of work to do and southgate needs to learn how to change a game every time henderson wa sin possesion ali lingard sterling all ran away up in a line with kane instead of coming to henderson really poor performance . thoughy loftus cheek gave a good acount of himself and i felt sorry for walker he's clearly better dan trippier in my books he should be yer wing back . id probably play cahil for experience over stones aswell.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Jun 2018 12:39:40
Yeah opinions have changed a little after that, was loads of excitement and second half disappointed, lol thought it was strange he waited so long to take Alli off who was struggling from 20 min. And he was going to bring delph on but changed his mind luckily? Think I’ll take it one game st a time now lol.
