Unfortunately none of the issues I politely asked for help below on were attended to by anyone. It only adds to the sense that no one; and I mean no one, has a clue about what is going on at the club.

The constant sense of uncertainty this summer is horrendous. 11 days until the window closes and, as it stands, there is nothing on Hazard's situation (club's most valuable asset) and Courtois's ( IF he goes, what is being done about an adequate replacement) . Waiting to speak "face to face" is a cop out and possibly a club line spun to Sarri. It is also a way of justifying getting sub standard replacements' due to "not having adequate time to replace".

It really does feel like the last few windows, where reporters are regurgitating the same stories written in different ways over and over again due to having no idea as to what
the club is doing. "In talks for Rugani, Interested in Higuain, Have a number one target if Courtois leaves". If, if, if.

It has got to a point where I have no expectation that anything will be done in the next 11 days'. Again, I use the example, surely the club knows what Courtois wants, why therefore can they not be making a comprehensive effort to acquire a replacement of similar or potentially similar quality instead of "waiting to speak face to face" and using that as an excuse to go to plan c. That will be the only option left at that point.

When a buyer tries to dictate the price from the seller, no matter what in life, it always will end going nowhere, the tail does not wag the dog.

There seems to be a pattern over the last six years (since Hazard, the last time we signed a truly tier one talent) . One thing is being an outstanding business executive; another is being an effective football executive.

It would help not having to put up with speculation over possibly being sold also, which is another issue which has, and probably will not, be clarified officially.

It would just be nice to have some final clarity on a number of issues which are going to have a direct impact on the short and long term future of the club.

{Ed033's Note - Sounds like it's the end of the world.

Maybe wait until the end of the transfer window and then you'll have your clarity. The club doesn't have a duty to keep us informed with the ins and outs of how it's run. Be patient and then you'll see the outcome. No point in moaning before a ball has been kicked.

. does it really bother you THAT much?!

It strikes me that you’re worrying about things that are not in your control, therefore you have no influence over any potential outcome.

Take a step back and wait to see what happens. what will be will be.

The club never puts out that sort of information about transfer targets. I don’t think any do really except for a few which have very active presidents such as Napoli etc. Just because Sarri says that he wants to speak to Courtois doesn’t mean the club aren’t actively looking for a replacement or aren’t already in ‘advanced talks’ with a possible replacement. I’m afraid you’ll only get the answers to your questions by the end of the transfer window and maybe not even then in regards to hazard.

Even if nothing happens over the next 11 days, we have a squad strong enough to compete in all competitions throughout the season. This is a team that romped the league 2 seasons ago. Now put this team with an attacking manager that will suit players like Hazard, Willian, Fabregas, Barkley and Pedro. Not to mention a centre midfield pairing of Jorginho and Kante (which could possibly become the best in Europe) Then we have great youth coming through with Hudson-Odoi, Ampadu and Loftus-Cheek. Teams will be scared to play us. There is literally nothing to worry about!

Jimmy1986 - Good post.

C1915,1955 and now this one I guess. Why do you write this crap?

30 Jul 2018 23:34:47
Not taking the 'no news is good news' approach then CFC5091?

We'll sign players, or we won't sign players.

We'll sell players, or we won't sell players

Roman will sell the club, or he won't sell the club.

The world will keep on turning, and Chelsea Football Club will keep on playing football - maybe even on Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 1945 GMT!

G8: Sorry some on here must keeping forgetting it's your site and only your blue tinted view of the club counts. Clearly if it doesn't go the way you think it should you'll be in tears again, dump the Chelsea pyjamas and bed clothes and grow into the adult word and remember it is not your site and every opinion counts whether you like it or not.
