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.



23 Jul 2017 12:22:01
Eds, is there any truth to the rumours that we want Oxlade Chamberlain?


{Ed018's Note - it sounds that way}

1.) 23 Jul 2017 17:17:55
Thanks for the reply Ed018. I guess he would be a decent squad player to fill the wing back and midfield roles.

{Ed018's Note - I'm thinking he'd be ok to provide some cover at wingback and the winger position.}

2.) 23 Jul 2017 18:15:15
I personally think he'd be an upgrade on moses think he's better technically who would you go for ed018 with who's out there and available at the minute.

3.) 23 Jul 2017 18:32:08
I don't think Wenger had done him any favours. It would be interesting to see what Conte could get out of him.

4.) 23 Jul 2017 19:23:26
He'd be a good addition and could provide cover in 3 positions. RW, RWB and CM, also only 1 year left on contract.

5.) 23 Jul 2017 20:03:16
Ox Chamberlin isn't an upgrade on Moses.

6.) 23 Jul 2017 21:10:58
Oh he is Moses has had 1 good year out of 6.

7.) 23 Jul 2017 21:15:33
great player. injury record worries me.

8.) 23 Jul 2017 21:22:48
Moses had a good game yesterday. didn't see Ox.

9.) 24 Jul 2017 04:01:43
Ox can play goalie too :-p.

10.) 24 Jul 2017 09:41:53
The Ox wants to leave Arsenal due to lack of game-time - why would he join us where he is likely to get less game-time?



19 Jul 2017 17:36:43
Lots of reports that a fee has now been Agreed for Morata. I guess now we have to just sit and wait (with which we've been doing a lot of this summer) for confirmation from either Real or Chelsea.


1.) 19 Jul 2017 18:04:46
Medical next.

Excellent performance from the whole team today, we just need to see this level of performance week in week out and we'll be absolutely fine.


1.) 05 Nov 2017 19:59:12
Agree Bobby. We were on form today. Mid 3 really work for us that's when Fab is at he's best. Would love to end the season top 3.I think we can di it. Manu out of top 4 even better.



31 Oct 2017 21:19:44
Fabregas and Morata have been woeful tonight. Fabregas has constantly given the ball away, and let's be honest if his passing is not on point he offers absolutely nothing to the team. Drinkwater needs to play against any half decent opponent as fabregas just doesn't have the legs or any defensive capabilities.

Morata has also been woeful tonight, nothing sticks to him. Luiz just doesn't fill me with confidence this season either, he's making silly mistakes almost every single game and he was lucky not to be punished in the first half.

Get Drinkwater and Kante together in midfield for the weekend for all of our sakes in my opinion. I'd even start Batshuayi at the weekend and bring Morata on around the 70min mark.

Tonights result has been coming for a few weeks but we've just had luck on our side, tonight our luck is out and we've been exposed. Simple as that. Not good enough at present.


1.) 31 Oct 2017 21:27:41
Morata hasn’t been good but the service is terrible, and conte needs to have good look at himself as this bakyoko cesc partnership is worst I’ve seen, cannot close anything and can’t keep it, confidence low with United next,

2.) 31 Oct 2017 21:29:04
Can’t think of anyone who has a decent game!
The strange thing is we have played better against them tonight then we did at the bridge!
Going to find a place to drown our sorrows!

3.) 31 Oct 2017 21:35:24
Conte is simply not inspiring players this season. Something is not right bts. we r 3 -0 down and watching Willian is frustrating. the whole team is just eager to get home. At best fourth position this season. Nothing more . I don't want to watch Europa league again.

4.) 31 Oct 2017 21:44:35
Chelseaforlife, totally agree. We have to fight for a top 4 finish this season and the build from there. Being in the Champions League next season has to be our top priority now, with maybe a decent FA Cup run.

5.) 31 Oct 2017 21:44:38
Willian ran and put in the effort which can’t be said for a few, we just didn’t / couldn’t get close to them, we couldn’t press them enough, and were sloppy in possession.

6.) 31 Oct 2017 21:51:30
At times it looks as if the players had just met. As I have said before you can only play Fabregas against teams we will dominate otherwise I think Drinkwater has to play now he's fit and Bayakoko needs a rest as he is not living up to the transfer hype. Only a kid but could do worse and play Ampadou who is far more controlled. The back three are not working and making far too many mistakes, Luiz and Cahill do not work anymore. Up front we create but cannot put them away. Luckily for us Atletico Madrid are playing badly!

7.) 31 Oct 2017 21:52:19
All about opinions but the only players who I would give a five out of ten would be Pedro and Courtois. The remainder would get a three out of ten or less!

8.) 31 Oct 2017 22:49:22
*Some players aren't performing to the level that is expected of them.

*Some wings need depth.

*Some players are still adapting.

*Injuries have not helped.

9.) 01 Nov 2017 02:27:49
Really? I thought Hazard in the first half was easily our best player. Created chances for himself and kept the ball well, in the 2nd half he just looked fed up and i don't blame him. I thought Pedro was good and Courtois definitely kept the score down! . Feel sorry for Thibo having to put up with that defence right now. Would be suprised if him and Hazard signed contract extensions any time soon.

10.) 01 Nov 2017 06:50:36
Don't know but I'm yet to be convinced on Courtois hype. He doesn't inspire confidence like Cech did. Crosses up high seems to be his strength. Not to say he's bad but I was made bliv he's even better than De Gea but tbh he's far below.
The team was bad but very good keepers live on that. 1st and 3rd goals exposed his positional awareness which I have noticed other times.

11.) 01 Nov 2017 07:33:38
Freeborn, you're honestly blaming Courtois for the first goal?

12.) 01 Nov 2017 08:56:39
Freeborn did you see that save in the second half.

13.) 01 Nov 2017 13:25:23
I'm not judging him based on only yesterday but I have noticed that over time. I remember when we played so badly and ended up with goaless draw with Cech. You bliv its a goal only when its in the net because the opposition need to do well beat Cech but such confidence is not there now. Most of our goals conceded in Rome were outside the box. Exceptional keepers don't concede often in that position. Again close range reflexes are so lacking in him. I'm just not convinced yet about all the hype around him.



21 Oct 2017 20:18:23
We have to be honest with ourselves today and not let the win fool us.

Teams are creating bucket loads of chances against us and Watford could easily have been 4-1 up before we made it 2-2. Richarlison missed when it looked easier to score and then he missed another albeit a more difficult header. But if those chances went in we couldn't have said Watford didn't deserve it because they fully outplayed us at times.

Yet somehow here we are with a 4-2 win and things suddenly do not look so bad, especially with United losing today.

We certainly need a big improvement over the next few weeks though, because we will not keep getting lucky like we have against Roma and Watford. The chances we're giving our opponents is the most worrying thing, and our forward play isn't exactly flowing right now either.

But at the end of the day a win is a win and today showed that we never give up no matter what, which is always good to see.


1.) 22 Oct 2017 07:29:59
100%. People on this site are so fickle and get carried away. We were poor at stoke And won 4-0 and people were saying we were going to win the league again, we'll look how that turned out. We haven't turned a corner and we need to improve quick.

2.) 22 Oct 2017 09:33:28
This is a great opportunity to see players that wouldn't normally get a chance. Ampadu, Bats and Musonda.

we are not. going to win the league this . so be it. But let's be positive and get behind our boys.

When fit id love to see 3 in midfield.
Bakayoko Kante Drinkwater.



18 Oct 2017 20:41:37
So yes we are 2-1 up against Roma, but it has been far from convincing. Roma have had and missed a host of chances and we're fortunate to have scored twice, albeit Luiz's strike was a beauty.

We seem to have a real problem once again holding possession and passing up the field, Roma have had us pegged back in our own half for much of the first half. It was the same against city a few weeks back, although less to that extent tonight. I'd just like to see us control possession a little better and pass through midfield instead of hitting so many hopeless long balls.

Hopefully we can grab another goal in the second half and shut them out. C'mon Chelsea!




15 Oct 2017 11:32:07
So I don't want this to come across in the wrong way, but if Conte were to walk away at the end of the season. Who would you prefer to replace him?

I honestly hope Conte stays for a few years to come, because I don't see anyone better than him. Guardiola now has City firing, but he has been given the players he wanted. Give Conte a few more transfer windows and buy the players he specifically wants and I honestly believe we would be unstoppable. But will the board give Conte precisely what he wants? Unfortunately I doubt it.

Had we got Alex Sandro, another top class midfielder and an extra striker in the summer we would be looking much stronger right now with our injuries.

Last season we were blessed with very few injuries but this month alone has derailed us slightly with no world class back ups to come into the starting XI.

Also players are not performing to their levels from last season, Luiz looks like the player from his first spell at the club and not the imperious form of last season. Hazard although still finding his feet, besides the Atletico game he hasn't looked great so far. Courtois also hasn't looked great in goal, although don't get me wrong he's made some great saves already this season to win us points. And Willian? right now he brings nothing to the team. Pedro, also looks inconsistent so far.

I just feel if the players can find their form and our injuries abate, this could still be a very good season. The league will be tough but I wouldn't bet against a good Champions League run.


1.) 15 Oct 2017 14:23:38
Hey Bobby,

I would love to think that Conte is fully committed to Chelsea and that Roman and Co were going to spend big like City and United to compete with the Manc Clubs domestically and the likes of Barca, Bayern, Madrid and PSG in Europe but the reality is clearly different.

We don't generate the income of Barca, Madrid and United and We don't have the private wealth of City's and PSG's Owners.

We have spent big money since Conte has been at Chelsea but have brought in huge money to snd whilst We have signed some good players We have let good players move on to, so the squad is at best as good as it was but certainly no better.

This isn't a complaint, just an observation but I think We as fans have to temper Our expectations.

We Won the Prem last Season and clearly deserved it but We had no European Football which clearly helped with recovery and preperation, aswell as having just 1 competition to focus on and I felt Our rivals also underachieved massively with the exception of Spurs.

I would say realisticaly We are a Top 4 side with outside ambitions of challenging for the Prem but We are not at the same level as City and United.

I want to Win every game as all Fans do, I'm disappointed when We don't as all Fans are but I have come to accept that the days of spending huge without selling big first are long gone and Roman is no longer the biggest fish in the pool. Therefore I don't expect the same success as before.

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

Oxlade-Chamberlain looked terrible today, of course Conte would improve him but Moses is 100 times the better player. Especially at RWB.

I don't actually know if Oxlade-Chamberlain has a problem with which position he's played in at arsenal. I believe it's more his ambition to win trophies, compete for the league and play in the Champions League that he wants. Arsenal cannot offer him that (especially now Wenger is there for another few seasons) .

Oxlade-Chamberlains ambition is bigger than Arsenals and that's why he wants a move. If he moves to Liverpool that's just a sideways step, if he wants to achieve things in his career he should join us.

Miss Darren Wood, I'd hardy call Hazard's performance at Bournemouth as a masterclass. Even his goal should arguably have been saved. Bournemouth gave Eden space to look good. Hazard has shown us glimpses of what he can do this season, but nothing more.

Hazard hasn't really impressed me so far this season, I know he had that injury but besides that Atletico game he hasn't really stood out. We know he has the quality but he needs to show it game in game out.

I wouldn't want Martial/ Rashford running at Pedro. Just give Zappacosta a chance at RWB for a few consecutive games, that's the only way he'll settle and improve.
