Chelsea make late bid to hijack Sanchez move to united.

Loads of rumours suddenly flying around that we could sign Sanchez under United's noses.

Not sure if to believe it or not, but let's hope it's true as our team needs something new in attack and Sanchez would certainly add spark, tenacity and most importantly GOALS!


1.) 15 Jan 2018 21:46:05
It looks like Sanchez wants to remain in London. That means one choice.

2.) 15 Jan 2018 21:55:57
The only stumbling block I see will be his weekly wage.

3.) 15 Jan 2018 22:00:03
Hint: Don’t get too excited, we’ll end up with Albrighton and Carroll in a 50 million double deal.

4.) 15 Jan 2018 22:01:40
All journalists linked to chelsea in anyway are saying they’ve heard nothing and not sure where rumour is from and questioning if true why so late.

5.) 15 Jan 2018 22:05:41
Lol guys they are playing with us. The media are having fun and trying to increase costs and get the whole country attention.

Think for a minute. When has Chelsea ever paid over the odds for a 29 year? Lol.

6.) 15 Jan 2018 22:18:18
CFCShak, Shevchenko.

7.) 15 Jan 2018 22:25:45
I heard luke Chadwick.

8.) 15 Jan 2018 22:32:48
Bobby. them were the good old days of 2006. Things have changed drastically since then mate. Football has changed drastically since then. Chelsea have changed with their transfer strategy and Shevchenko was not getting anywhere near what Sanchez is demanding right now.

Don't get me wrong i would love Sanchez. But this will be a Lukaku scenario and don't forget it is not clear whether Chelsea were even after Lukaku or not. But we got blasted by the media for letting Lukaku go. If we miss out on Sanchez, watch the same stories circulate of how we let this slip, how we got rejected etc.

9.) 15 Jan 2018 22:53:59
CFCShak, I agree with what you say about how our transfer strategy etc has changed. The last what I'd call big move we made was Torres (obviously Morata cost more but he's not such a big name and today's market has just gone crazy) .

Over the next few windows I feel we really need to make a few top quality signings (not potential but already proven quality) . Because if we don't City, United and even Liverpool to a lesser extent are going to pull away from us.

Like you.

10.) 15 Jan 2018 23:34:17
I agree with you Bobby, Torres was the last big one. Maybe that failed transfer changed our stragey. But I agree we need proven quality. Teams around us seem to be getting proven quality and it is clear we are being overtaken.

I would love for Sanchez to happen, it would really be a boost and transfers like this would get hazard etc to extend contracts. But it seems unlikely.

11.) 16 Jan 2018 07:04:05
I would love to think Chelsea are targeting someone like Sanchez and pray that the Carroll talk is just smoking mirrors, because I don’t think anyone of us wants to see him pull on the shirt.



03 Jan 2018 13:05:08
Ed's, is there any truth to all these Vidal rumours? Lots of reports that we've apparently made an offer to Bayern.


{Ed001's Note - I don't know mate, I am still trying to catch up on what's going on after a couple of weeks off. Bayern were certainly open to selling him and he would be a fantastic signing for you though.}

1.) 03 Jan 2018 15:34:46
Thanks for the reply Ed001!

I think he would be a brilliant signing as well. Here's hoping :)

{Ed001's Note - welcome mate.}



29 Aug 2017 17:23:11
Kylian Hazard signs!

Chelsea have signed Edens younger brother Kylian (22) and he goes straight into the development squad.


1.) 29 Aug 2017 18:08:39
Pretty old for the development squad, no?

2.) 29 Aug 2017 18:38:26
probably just to get him to england and for profit.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 18:48:24
As was Hector at the time. If the club see a potential for profit, then it doesn't matter the are, especially if said player hasn't kick-started their career yet.



28 Aug 2017 17:21:59
Jeremie Boga loaned out to Birmingham, I guess that makes sense with ox coming in. But I would have liked to have seen Boga get a few chances this season. Hopefully Musonda stays.


1.) 28 Aug 2017 17:37:51
Good player for the future. Its better he goes on loan for his own development. I don't see him picking a shirt in that Chelsea; atleast not for now.



23 Aug 2017 08:39:57
Today's rumours are ridiculous!

Tuchel to replace Conte. Seriously?

Just when things seem rosier that bombshell drops. I don't believe it one little bit, but with our board you just never know. I'd honestly be devasted if Conte was to leave.


1.) 23 Aug 2017 10:04:13
would be an absolute joke if they was to get rid of CONTE. i don't believe it one bit too.

2.) 23 Aug 2017 10:13:02
With just a week to go in the window, these type of rumours are not exactly going to attract and or make it easier to sign players. Especially not even knowing if Conte will be their manager when they get here.

I think the Tuchel rumours are bs, but It doesn't help us transfer wise with these kind of rumours circulating.

3.) 23 Aug 2017 10:16:43
In the same sentence you wrote
"I don't believe it one bit but you never know" that's suggests you're at least a bit worried about it.

Its bs, don't even give it a second thought. Remember not too long ago the media were trying to sell him to INter Milan.

4.) 23 Aug 2017 10:19:38
paper talk like this. i believe is when the club should step in and release a statement.

5.) 23 Aug 2017 10:40:12
If this happens I am changing clubs.

6.) 23 Aug 2017 10:40:43
what a load of codswallop.

7.) 23 Aug 2017 11:30:26
I've put my full response to this story on the banter site.
I do understand why our club rarely make statements about unsubstantiated press stories but given the timing and how important Conte is to the club and the vast majority of Chelsea fans I think the club MUST come out with a response asap.

8.) 23 Aug 2017 11:39:11
Morata9. Well it's true, you just never know with our club and sacking managers. It's happened enough times before, whether that be Mourinho, Ancelotti and so on.

9.) 23 Aug 2017 12:42:07
Didn't conte already say he wanted to stay at Chelsea and help them into a new Stamford bridge - that's ears away.

10.) 23 Aug 2017 16:57:12
Letting Conte go would be worse than letting Mourinho go in his first spell. Conte is something completely different to previous Chelsea managers, although he wasn't given backup from board like others especially Mourinho(first spell).
Losing Conte would be much more than losing the world class manager.

11.) 23 Aug 2017 18:33:32
Please let's not get into even giving this rubbish air time.
It's the papers we lose to burnley, the team have turned against the manager blah, blah, blah. We win and the team are playing for the manager but the board are against the manager blah blah blah.
Let's just get on with important things like signing another three players and forget this BS.

This coming summer is going to be such a turning point for Chelsea, whether that be for better or worse.

No champions league football next season is going to make it harder to attract players and keep hold of our current players (although only a few are worth keeping on the basis of this season)

The player we need to move on the most in my opinion is Fabregas. Yes he can play a pass but it's criminal how many games he's played this season, Kante being made to do everything in midfield alone as Fabregas offers absolutely nothing without the ball.

Then there's Morata, who I've no idea how to feel about. He's far too whiny and gets bullied by defenders far too often. You could say Diego Costa was whiny too, but he roughed defenders up, and scored many vital goals for us

Then there's the manager situation, today we're being linked with Brendan Rodgers I kid you not. There are no great proven managers currently available in my opinion, besides Ancelotti. But would we really go back to a former manager once more, I don't know.

Now obviously the summer isn't here yet and we still have a few games to go and the FA CUP. For the remaining league games I'd just put Bakayoko beside Kante, Bakayoko has been woeful but giving him game time is the only way to see if he improves. And Giroud has to start up front, he offers us so much more than Morata as we saw yesterday.

Let's finish the season on a positive, and with a trophy. c'mon Chelsea!


1.) 15 Apr 2018 17:48:33
Isn't that we say every summer only to get dissapointed come September?



14 Mar 2018 12:25:36
Big game tonight, we're not expected to get through. But at the end of the day this situation is not an impossible task.

Don't get me wrong I can't see us not conceding, but a score draw is not out of the question. Barcelona are not the greatest defensively, we have to play with a big man upfront tonight, with Willian and Hazard either side.

We can hurt Barcelona on the break, but we have to play almost the perfect game. Conceding a goal is not the end of the world either, we just need to get a score draw. Ideally 2-2 to take us through on away goals. But I'd take a 1-1 and penalties and our chances.

We can do this tonight c'mon Chelsea!


1.) 14 Mar 2018 12:49:23
I am with you mate, If we are really up for this game and won't hide like in Man city's game Barcelona is for the taking.

We really need to try and attack ourselves and not hold all 11 players in defence.



21 Feb 2018 08:37:28
I see the media are still bashing Conte, they simply have it in for him. We had one of our best performances last night and were mightily unlucky not to have won.

Conte is the best thing to happen to us and long may he stay here in my opinion. Sure he's make the odd mistake this season, but everything is not always going to be perfect.

There's no one better or with more passion than Conte to lead us forward!


1.) 21 Feb 2018 15:15:22
He's simply the best coach we could hope for right now! He's completely changed our system, and if he were given the players that he wants the most, we would be a titan in Europe, I believe.

2.) 21 Feb 2018 23:41:32
And then conte says things again and gives them ammo. saying his bags are packed ready and it takes two to make a marriage work and how ( although true ) he will have lots of offers. doesn’t help with digs at board.



20 Feb 2018 12:46:46
Chelsea v Barcelona

These are the games we all remember, for the happy and sad times. This fixture over the past 15 years or so has been memorable on almost every occasion.

These are the nights dreams come true, and why we have to be in the Champions League next season at all costs. The excitement for tonight is already growing, we're underdogs and I'm quietly confident about us getting a result tonight.

Our form has been dodgy to say the least over the past month or so, but tonight could change our whole season with one good performance.

Let's get a result tonight, C'mon Chelsea!




29 Jan 2018 21:06:42
15m for Giroud would be a great bit of business. He's a very decent hold up player, great strength and always gets amongst the goals. Would certainly give our opponents something different to worry about.

Conte isn't the problem, it's the players. We've seen it with countless managers we've had before, the players just stop playing.

Conte is the best thing that has happened to us and it would be foolish to want him to leave (although we all know he will undoubtedly leave at the end of the season unfortunately)

Moses and Alonso are wing backs! When Azpilicueta replaces moses it's at wing back. We use wing backs!

We need a big man upfront to hold the ball up and bring Hazard and Willian into play. Disappointed in that aspect, Giroud would have been a perfect starter tonight, we need a focal point upfront simply so we can hoof the ball up field and one of our big strikers can hold onto it. Because we know we're going to be under immense pressure defensively.

I say let's get Drogba back, he might be nearing 40 but he's still better than everyone we're supposedly looking at. Drogba please save us!

At least you know what you get from Kante, half the players look like they aren't even trying.

Agree with everything you just said JBS. Last night felt more like a defeat than a draw, with the chances we missed and Arsenal's late equaliser.

But on your last point on Bakayoko, and I know I keep raving about Vidal. But if we could sign Vidal, he would be perfect in our midfield next to Kante. For one Vidal would add goals from midfield, I know people say he's too old blah blah blah. But he could be a great player for us for a couple of seasons. He would offer so much more to what we currently have.

Nathswindon, If not this month I certainly wouldn't rule us out of making a move for Vidal in the summer.
