Reports appearing everywhere that we are interested in Palmieri of Roma for £20m. Anyone guess why we are after a player for that money who has been on loan most of his career, played one game this season for Roma and we 'might' pay £20m? We obviously have someone who likes Brazilian born players and few work out in the EPL.

His equivalent to to Andy Carrol but in the left wing back position.

This lad was loaned out from Santos to Palermo and was playing as a back up to their first team player. He was then loaned out to AS Roma and was playing as a back up to Digne. He was then bought for a small fee. He also got injured seriously. This lad has hardly played enough football, if he can't make the first team of Palermo or be ahead of Kolarov in Roma then how is ever going to be good for us as a back up? I would rather throw in Kennedy and give him games. This is the story of our transfers nowadays.


2.) 17 Jan 2018 15:47:53
Palmieri isn't the finished product yet but he does have potential.


3.) 17 Jan 2018 16:23:39
We don’t need potential we need quality. Proven quality,


4.) 17 Jan 2018 17:16:35
Exactly. Had it with word 'potential'. For the last 5 years we have had potentials in our academy. We need quality now.


5.) 17 Jan 2018 17:53:33
Then let's pray that our beloved club repents and starts spending money again.


6.) 17 Jan 2018 18:37:46
Lol Obinna. I think the Torres transfwr broke camels back.


7.) 17 Jan 2018 18:53:07
£20m for Carroll, £20m for Palmieri, £40m for squad fillers. That £40 would go a long way to get someone that actually compliments the team. Come the end of the season and we lose Conte plus the transfer fiasco we have and the likes of Hazard, Courtois, Azi and even Morata would think "this club has lost its ambition". Actually, Batkley is looking a steal at £15m!


8.) 17 Jan 2018 21:36:43
Emerson had a fantastic season for Roma last season, before getting injured in May. He only returned last month for them, and has played one or two games since then.

For under 25m he'd be a fantastic buy in my opinion. We can't compete with PSG if they're going for Sandro. Emerson would be a very good alternative, if his health isn't an issue of course.


9.) 17 Jan 2018 22:53:31
CFCShak - and Aubameyang isn’t quality no? 21 goals on 23 games this season.


10.) 18 Jan 2018 11:38:12
TruBlu . Auba is more than quality. Why you reffering to a player we are not linked with?

Good result for us with Bournemouth winning, now for Manchester City to turn Liverpool over and gain us a bit of breathing space. Not so long ago I thought we were nailed on top four and I still hope that's the case but boy do we like suspense at Chelsea.

C1955

1.) 14 Jan 2018 17:43:51
Well, that wish went out the window. Note how both teams play with width and not frightened to pass more than ten feet. Out close quarter passing in front of a packed defence is killing us.

The rumour season is upon us once more. Two articles one regarding Barkley. After his behaviour last time around why would we be interested? Conte cannot possibly know anything about him as he has been injured for most of his stay so who is pulling the strings? The story about Andy Carroll; once again Conte would have little knowledge of someone constantly injured so again someone other than him is having a say on rumoured interest. 'If' true it does not augur well for Conte seeing out his contract!

C1955

1.) 04 Jan 2018 23:44:16
nobody knows the full truth maybe he knew hed be injured til d new year an wanted to stay in liverpool with family rather dan move to london in the summer knowing hed be at very little only he knows the answer but for me i think maybe spurs came calling an hed prefer that move time will tell.


2.) 05 Jan 2018 15:06:20
C1955 You have to realise agents play a big part in the modern game. RB agreed a deal, was about to take his medical and pulls out. Why? Because he was never going to be fit by Christmas and his fee reduces from £35M to £15M! A nice little signing on bonus going his say as opposed to Evertons! Anyway, money apart a fantastic addition to our squad.

We are smothering each other at the moment, Conte will have to make some changes. 60%+ possession and not really got anywhere and as for this passing backwards and forwards to Courtois in defence!

Not impressed with Morata's comments about 'not staying in London very long as it is too big and stressful'. That maybe the case but keep quiet please, you are getting a lot of fan support and have a huge price around your neck.

C1955

{Ed001's Note - why does he not just live in a quieter part then?}


1.) 30 Oct 2017 17:49:06
Or just stay outside the actual city. Perhaps he’ll settle but it seems like another potential Costa situation where he’ll want to return to Italy regardless of how well he does for us. If that’s the case I’d push hard for Dybala next summer and offer Morata in exchange personally.


2.) 30 Oct 2017 18:14:55
Ed001:- He lives in Chelsea and apparently enjoys the ethnicity of the city but finds it a stressful environment. Fine and I would probably agree but he is still trying to establish himself, we have a big game coming up so why say anything. Very disappointing especially after the fiasco with Costa.

{Ed001's Note - that's my point, if you find it too big and stressful move to somewhere smaller and less stressful. I can understand him not liking London, it is not for me either, and he does come from a totally different lifestyle, but you have to find ways to make it work.}


3.) 30 Oct 2017 19:52:50
It’s what he said that he won’t be there long, I’m second interview his said he loves London but lots of traffic and crowds, same stuff that people who live in London and work in London think about London., will no doubt move further outside like few of the players have done,


4.) 30 Oct 2017 20:25:36
Did he also say, that if Chelsea offered him a ten year contract, he would sign it?


5.) 31 Oct 2017 07:13:56
He did say he would sign a ten year contract after being in a corner and of course he also knew it would never happen. I personally don't mind if he is unhappy but there is a time and place to say those things, not before an important game for your team. Personally I am looking for a hat trick in payment!


6.) 31 Oct 2017 15:16:37
Hatrick and 3 assists.6-0.

G8: No criticism it's a banter forum and if we all agree it would be a miserable one. I remember those heady days of Clive Walker (under rated) but I started in 1955 so I have been to hell and back a few times and I worked with Matthew Harding and we had plenty of arguments also. As of today I think Bats and Bayakoko are losing a lot of support so that spat is going to run and run. Never sad supporting Chelsea, frustrating is the word I would use. Till the next clash.

G8: I don't hate any player and all try. To me Chelsea are too big to spend money on the likes of Barkley BUT I hope he works out because of the team. I don't rate Bats and I think him and the likes of Rahman and Cuadrado were absolute wastes of money and somebody should be held accountable. Willian frustrates me as he is talented, has a good shot in both feet and works his socks off BUT the end product is missing and we didn't buy him to just run a around. Loftus-Cheek is lazy and I doubt he will make it anywhere; he moved to Palce 'because it is near where I live', honestly. Bakayoko has all the attributes but so far he looks like an athlete trying to play football. Christensen I saw several times when he was in Germany and he looked average BUT he has really won me over and gets better every game. I would play Drinkwater over Bakayoko and I like him and did when he was at Leicester but given all the the players we had been apparently associated with I thought it was a big climb down. Clearly I am older than you and view chelsea differently but never through rose tinted or in your case blue tinted glasses. To me SID summed up the Barkley transfer well; if he had gone to Spurs he would have been ripped. Keep up the banter I miss it when you go quiet.

G8: You were blowing a gasket after the Arsenal game about Morata being a waste of money when his movement is superb, heading equally good but he is having a crisis of confidence in front of goal and here you are ecstatic about about a player who has done nothing in two years and 'never' got near any of the potential people 'believed' he had. I guarantee Conte had no say whatsoever in that buy.

£15m for a player out for a year, intermittent the previous year and never got anywhere towards fulfilling the potential they 'felt' he had, to me an absolute waste of money. As infuriating as he is and in fairness he does seem to have found a new lease of life, what does Barkley offer that we cannot get from Willian. I am adamant this is nothing to do with Conte who would not have a clue about Barkley. Another concern, the last three players we bought (including Barkley) have been injured. There are lot here that are supporters of Loftus-Cheek but I cannot see him playing for Chelsea unless he sees the light and ups his workrate.

He is not being guided and is not used to EPL defenders on him so quickly. As pointed out already, Drogba used to fall over as if he had been shot until told to cut it out.

I am a big fan of Morata but his confidence is shot but more importantly he is complaining after every tackle and hitting the ground needlessly and at the moment I see signs of Torres. He is clerly not used to defenders on him straight away and he will either have to adjust or he is going to get less game time if we spend in the summer. Norwich played well albeit we let them and our performance was shocking with many of the first team shown by Amapadu who, who looked very mature for a young kid. Matt Martin summed up Willian nicely, he has everything we need and everything we do not, the downside being he slows play down at the wrong time and has no end product, goals.

Even if we were after him why would he consider it when there is no guarantee the manager will be there next year.
