Hey Ed001,

Apologies if this has already been answered elsewhere but would You know if Chelsea will be in for a Striker in January. I appreciate Jan is a particularly difficult time to aquire talent but I think We will be playing with the handbrake on if We don't bring someone in.

Looking forward to Your reply Mate and Thanks in advance


{Ed001's Note - Sarri would certainly like to bring someone in, he is not happy with either option available to him and is not willing to place his faith in a youngster.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Not even Tammy?
I somehow think that Tammy is our best striker.
And this is coming from someone who is not even as pro-youth as most other Chelsea fans.

{Ed001's Note - he is out on loan and Sarri is not happy with either Giroud or Morata as options, so needs to bring in replacements for them. Abraham's best hope is as the 3rd choice for next season.}

Giroud is very limited and morata can’t score in an empty net. A striker is the absolute priority.

Though Abraham’s having a good season from what’s i at, he’s not an improvement on MORATa or giroud.

I feel like we missed a trick not signing Aubemeyang.

Completely agree we missed out by not signing Aubameyang, something I and others) had written hoping would happen quite a long time before his move to AFC when Costa on way out. He was then apparently offered to us, and we didn't take him. He seemed so obviously what we needed, hugely better proven track record of scoring than Morata. Of course there were rumours of Aubameyang having a 'difficult personality' but many confident strikers do - eg Costa - have something of an attitude. It's often part of ego/ self-belief required in the job. The problem with Morata is that he doesn't seem to have enough of this, nor quite the physical strength needed for EPL, though he has displayed plenty of skill at times, and it all looked very promising to begin with.

Thank for the reply Ed001, much appreciated.

Would You know if the Club are on board with Sarri's desire to bring another forward in and if so would this likely mean one going out in some capacity?

Also would You know of any potential targets. I've read rumours linking Us with Immobile but can't see Us concluding that if true and definately not in Jan.

Thanks again for the reply and I look forward to hearing any more info You might have lol.


{Ed001's Note - I don't have the contacts within the club Ed002 has, so I have no idea for sure what the club are thinking. I do know there has been a number of forwards scouted, according to people who should know. The problem is that this is due to scouts being at games and there is no guarantee that they are scouting the player it is believed they are scouting. Or that they actually recommend the player looked at. Lazio have been watched and the assumption is it is him. Icardi seems to be under the impression he is a target as well. So it can only be inferred from those two beliefs that the club are targeting a striker. However it is not concrete I am afraid.}

By Lazio, you mean Immobile, Ed?

{Ed001's Note - yes mate, sorry, I should have made that clearer.}

03 Dec 2018 23:04:28
Maybe we should go back in for Crouch as a big man? We were linked last year, might be another option.

Thanks again Ed001. Top Man.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}
