Hello Ed001 hope you are well.

What do you make of Nicolo Barella. and is there any interest from Chelsea for the player?

Thanks.

AfroBlue

{Ed001's Note - according to the club and at least one of his team-mates, yes there is interest from Chelsea. Naingollan was talking about it and how he thinks the lad is his successor for Inter, which would make sense. Cagliari have ruled out a sale in January and Barella himself has said his family are Inter fans and he would be keen to move there. He has also made it known he wants guaranteed first team football and talked of an interest in joining Liverpool, not so long ago, which sparked off rumours of him signing. I think he is just one of those players who is looking for a move and is touting himself, rather than he was especially interested in joining Liverpool or particularly interested in Inter. He does talk a little too much about other clubs for my liking, it feels disrespectful to Cagliari for me.

I have to be honest, I have not seen a lot of him playing, when I did see him there were some nice touches etc, but overall he was unimpressive. Like I said I haven't seen a lot and as the likes of Pirlo and Naingollan are saying he is top class and they have seen a lot of him, I would personally bow to their wisdom on this.}

"some nice touches. " I'm of the same view especially when you look at his long range passing abilities. He's a young talent and could attain great heights of the likes of Pirlo, hopefully his glut liking of other clubs won't come in his way.

. and hopefully we snatch him.

Thanks Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - I think, to be fair to the lad, that he is being asked leading questions by journalists and so can hardly say "f off I wouldn't join that shower if they paid me a billion". But it still does not look good and he would be better off batting the questions away and just talking about Cagliari.}


2.) 18 Dec 2018 08:50:28
Just curious. is this usually the case with Hazard and Real Madrid?

{Ed001's Note - no mate, he is not being led in that respect, he is leading the conversation. It was the same thing as Lukaku kept doing while at Everton, when he spent his entire time talking up the prospect of a move. Hazard is just desperate to move to Madrid, though it is beyond me why he is so keen on them. They are a mess and his career is too short to be taking a chance that they will avoid the kind of decline Man Utd have suffered.}


3.) 18 Dec 2018 09:32:39
Ed do you mean according to chelsea or cagliari there's interest? And do you mean his italy teammates like jorginho maybe?

{Ed001's Note - Cagliari and I meant a team-mate at Cagliari. Sorry, that wasn't very clear I realise now.}


4.) 18 Dec 2018 09:42:27
Ed can i ask which teamate/ s,

{Ed001's Note - I don't know if I can say to be honest, without checking, I wouldn't want to get him into trouble.}

Hazard, Azpi, Jorginho, Kante are the only top players we have. We really are going to be in trouble if one of them picks up an injury this season (May God forbid) . Last seasons thrashing by Watford and Newcastle shall be the norm.

NB: I totally support Sarri. It's the board that has me a bit gutted.

AfroBlue

1.) 05 Aug 2018 20:25:10
I think Azpi is a quality defender. But I’m not sure if he’s a quality RB in a Sarri system. It will be interesting to see. His passing was poor today when he got pressured.


2.) 05 Aug 2018 22:05:15
You need to watch the way you speak about azpi king frank.


3.) 05 Aug 2018 22:47:47
KingFrank I made this your exact same point about Azpi not been optimal for that RB role anymore some weeks back. I prefer Moses for that RB role currently cos it might be easier for Moses to adapt to that position than Azpi. If Azpi is to play RB again, it will take him some time to adapt and be excellent at that role. You can see how difficult it is for Alonso to adapt again to LB role (from the left wing back position that he was used to) . My fear for Azpi is that he might not be optimal too- playing in a two man central defense, if the coach was to move him to centre back.


4.) 06 Aug 2018 08:09:40
Frank - been saying this for a few months now. As good as Azpi has been, his performances have dropped. He doesn’t look happy at right back. I love the bloke, but feel him and Alonso are there to be got at every game. Alonso is particular. He’s awful.


5.) 06 Aug 2018 13:04:28
I feel It is easier to convert an ageing (experienced) player from RB/ LB to CENTRE BACK than from CENTRE BACK to RB/ LB.
I also think that it's easier to convert a Wingback to a fullback than convert a centre back to a full back.
It's like water flowing uphill (very difficult) - trying to convert a Centre back to a wingback.

NB- The position of a WB > FB require players with relatively more mobility compared to a centre back; and mobility is one thing that reduces with age.
In conclusion, Moses and Zappacosta should be adapted to become our RB (right full backs) while Alonso and Emerson should be adapted to become our LB (left full backs) . Azpi will defend better than Moses or Zappacosta in the box, but he would slow us down when the fullbacks need to attack (or overlap) and if our full backs aren't overlapping, we can't say that we are attacking team.

I think Moses is a home grone.


2.) 22 Jul 2017 09:29:10
Victor Moses not a homegrown? I don't really understand all these obsession for homegrown and English players. I prefer merit to some quota system that breeds mediocrity.


3.) 22 Jul 2017 09:35:12
Yes, Moses is a homegrown player.


4.) 22 Jul 2017 10:58:33
Matic has about as much of a chance of being in the squad this season as I do.


5.) 22 Jul 2017 11:32:48
The club can register only 17 non home grown players. No home grown players no depth in the squad.

Hi Ed002,are Chelsea in pursuit of Lacazette?

AfroBlue

{Ed002's Note - Please don't ask about random players - we cannot deal with. Go to the European pages and search.}


 

 

11 Jun 2017 09:39:59
I'm really hoping we don't sign Lukaku, If we can't get a striker to replace Costa, we would better have Traore and Batshuayi as strikers come next season.

AfroBlue

1.) 11 Jun 2017 10:53:36
AfroBlue. It seems you are out of your mind. We will require to replace Costa with a proper striker, Michy and may be Traore will be back ups.
We will get Lukaku surely, if we fail to convince Everton to sell at right price we may go and get Morata.


2.) 11 Jun 2017 11:33:36
Edd mentioned traore will bd likely off to lyon permanently.


3.) 11 Jun 2017 11:51:07
Morata has signed with Man U. Lukaku it is for Chelsea.


4.) 11 Jun 2017 12:08:58
Though my opinion but I don't believe Lukaku is better than Michy. I still think Michy will be a better all round if given proper opportunity but the pressure @ Chelsea means he may not get such chance now. We shall certainly buy him back if we ever sell Michy now.


5.) 11 Jun 2017 12:34:18
i also think that michy is all round better than lukaku.


6.) 11 Jun 2017 12:47:02
Based on?


7.) 11 Jun 2017 13:00:02
movement, touch, technique, link up, work rate, attitude,


8.) 11 Jun 2017 14:22:57
Touch? Michy has a woefull first touch mate just look back to tge game he got d winner agaisnt west brom the ball was bouncing off him ans he was running around like a headless chicken fouling everyone michy needs game time to be judged do.


9.) 11 Jun 2017 15:05:48
yes michys touch is better than lukaku, even everton fans say if he don't score all he does is stand there being lazy throwing his hands up and down moaning at everybody, maybe he will change under conte.


10.) 11 Jun 2017 15:33:50
I agree when he doesn't score he doesn't affect games i wish we didn't sign him but it looks inevitable.

Yes, by all means let's get Sandro, but we would be out of our mind to include Azpi in that deal. After all the hard work, consistency and dedication Dave has shown, he should be among the players in the NOT FOR SALE list.

Anyway, thanks God its rubbish.
