Like most I assumed that Zidane returning to Madrid was a certain catalyst for Hazard definitely going to Madrid in the summer.

There's an assumption that Zidane would have returned on the condition of Madrid signing Hazard, amongst over. But maybe Zidane returned despite Madrid offering no guarantee of following up their interest in Hazard.

If I'm honest, I can't see Madrid weighing out the sort of money we want for Hazard. Not when he turns 29 in the next twelve months. It is not how they have characteristically operated.

I guess I’m like a few fans J, bored with the whole Hazard saga!

He'll go. We can't ask for much given the circumstances and after everything he's done for the club, we should just let him leave. Hopefully if our ban isn't frozen and he still leaves the fans don't think any less of him. He shouldn't feel forced to stay because of the clubs mistakes.

Is Ed02's return to the Chelsea page when we enter a transfer ban the ultimate act of irony? It's too well timed not to be.

If so, I have nothing but respect.

{Ed002's Note - It is no problem for me not to bother if it is all about to start again.}

Don’t think he meant any harm Ed002! Nath has usually been a respectable poster!

Sorry Ed, it was a well intentioned joke nothing more.

Eds, if our transfer ban remains, can we buy players and loan them out until our ban is over?

{Ed002's Note - No, Chelsea cannot register any new players that are not already notified on the FIFA TMS.}

Could we do what (If I remember correctly) Athleti did with costa and buy someone but not register them and just have them train with the club then? Just our of interest. Also is the registering that we cannot do different from the registering for competitions then? Sorry for the stupid question Ed, just curious.

{Ed002's Note - The "registering" is notification of the transfer to FIFA via the TMS. Chelsea, if banned, cannot register new players for the duration of the ban - it is really, really simple to understand and I am surprised folks are struggling to understand this.}

Ok, thanks Ed. Was just curious if we had any sort of workarounds that we could be following to be honest. Was hoping it wasn’t as simple as it sounded haha.
Cheers for clarifying.

{Ed002's Note - It is not complicated. Things may well change before the summer is out though.}

The club is hoping to be able to appeal to CAS to delay the ban?

{Ed002's Note - What?}

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Mar 2019 09:27:25
Court of Arbitration for Sport - CAS.

{Ed002's Note - I think it best you all just ignore this matter for now.}

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 17:23:50
ed002 is it true were interested in pepe, jovic and Maxi Gomez thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to get in to your giant lists of random players.}

12 Mar 2019 18:28:51
sorry ed can i ask about one player then, if were interested at all in pepe.

{Ed002's Note - No, Pepe will be moving elsewhere.}

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 22:17:12
Hopefully Bayern then. So Callum sees sense and signs an extension here lol.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 22:46:33
Which Pepe is that though Ed? 😏.

Agree0 0Disagree

13 Mar 2019 06:38:17
In the nearest future, I get the feeling that we will wish we signed Pepe. Unless the club is interested in someone better.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 08:30:22
Hazard's idol, Zidane is back at Madrid. Eds please can you tell us if Hazard will get his request to move to Madrid next summer.
Please who do Chelsea look at for the replacement? Cheers!

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with his childhood idol, but nothing has changed and he is one of the players they are keen on.}

Does it even matter who we’re looking at as a replacement given we can’t sign anyone till summer 2020 at this rate? The biggest signing we could make this season would be keeping hold of him but that’s only going to be remotely possible if we secure champions league football.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Mar 2019 23:47:07
Zidane back at Madrid! I wonder if he's asked them to sign Hazard yet. Enjoy watching him play for us for the rest of this season people.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

12 Mar 2019 02:58:47
Yep he’s gone.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 07:26:37
And yet Chelsea will remain.

Agree1 0Disagree

12 Mar 2019 11:52:35
Maybe it would help us to become a team that doesn't have to constantly rely on one player.

Agree1 0Disagree

13 Mar 2019 18:34:52
BruCeFC we coped in the past and we will cope in the future. It may make others step up to the mark instead of standing in the back ground. I think he will go. So we will find out next season.

hi Ed002, Any truth that N'Golo Kante wants out of the club?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of him telling the club that he wants to leave, but as in the case of most players if there were interest from high profile clubs he might well have to consider his future.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

11 Mar 2019 21:13:00
I don't blame any high profile player that wants to leave cos the Chelsea team that we have now is barely a shadow of the team that brought glory to the club (whom every good player want to be a part of; and made the club very attractive to players) .
Top players wants to keep winning things and when it doesn't look like that's possible or when it doesn't seem like the club doesn't look like showing any ambition, then don't blame top players for wanting to leave.

12 Mar 2019 07:50:09
The team we have did bring glory to us. 2 league titles.

12 Mar 2019 15:13:52
Not this team! 4 or 5 players were involved but unfortunately the rest aren’t!

Frustrating game but credit to Wolves, they defended brilliantly and it took a quality strike from Hazard to break them down. Nothing new that we struggle to break teams down when they just defend, been that way all season. Don't have enough quality upfront or creativity in the midfield. Kovacic hasn't brought anything to this team going forward to play the LCM role, looks like a rabbit caught in the headlights once he reaches the final third. Desperately need Ruben fit and starting in this team.

Also been very unimpressed with Higuain so far, clearly unfit and his overall play besides from his movement has been very poor. Still a long way to go but we probably have the toughest fixtures out of the 4 teams chasing the top 4 besides maybe Spurs. Everton next week is crucial, drop points there and i think Europa will be our best chance of getting Champions league football.

Massive credit to solves but we weren’t near good enough. Higuain has been absolutely poor.

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Mar 2019 11:24:41
Part of our major problems all season is that we've always been too predictable with:
* Our formation (always 433),
* Starting personnel (our starting lineup is always very predictable)
* Substitutions (which is always been a direct swap) .
I thank God that Sarri saw the beauty and benefit of a tactical substitution (when he brought in Willian for Jorginho) - the ball moved quickly, pressure came down on Wolves from the central attacking midfield area and wide area (with the central defensive midfield area still intact) which eventually broke the deadlock.

Hey Ed002 or Ed001 do you expect chelsea to have a big summer? I think it’s a neccesity to sign both Koulibaly and Chilwell for our left side of defence. We’ve seen how big of a difference Van Dijk has made, now we need to sign the other best CB in the world.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea obviously has players the club are interested in but these are just random names.}

If we do buy a CB it won't be Koulibaly. Napoli would only sell for an exorbitant fee.

Perhaps if we're lucky we could get Romagnoli. Papers today reporting he might be for sale for around 60m. He's captained his side, and I think he'd provide a valuable leadership personality even at his younger age. Also left footed so would be another plus.

Not saying we need a CB as I love Zouma. But if the club don't want to use Zouma it should be Romagnoli or Upamecano or Tah.

The first question was all I was asking if you could share, Chilwell and Koulibaly are players in my opinion who I think we should go all out to sign, Koulibaly more so. He’s phenomenal.

{Ed002's Note - Right, just random players that Chelsea has no interest in.}

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Mar 2019 12:02:04
Hardly random but righto buddy.

Prefer Skriniar and Mendy myself. Think Chilwell will be nailed on for City.

If Madrid have other targets ( Neymar mbappe etc ) would the arrival of Jose bring interest in hazard?

{Ed002's Note - As you should know, Madrid already has an interest in Hazard.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

06 Mar 2019 17:37:35
Sorry I mean, would he be a priority, move up the pecking order or is he behind other targets.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Mar 2019 23:21:56
What do think Hazard was meant when he recently said that he's open to playing for Mourinho again? If you ask me- I think Hazard might have guessed that Mourinho might end up at Real Madrid and he (Hazard) wants to make sure that the bridge between them is amended.
