CHO to sign a 5 year contract.

1.) 16 May 2019 22:39:31
That would be good news!

2.) 17 May 2019 09:27:38
I hope so. But wouldn't jump the gun.



04 Feb 2019 20:57:28
Whats peoples thoughts on the Courtois situation in the media. He came up with a story of Marina breaking a verbal agreeement which Chelsea have denied and are angry about!

1.) 04 Feb 2019 21:01:43
I think Mr Courtois might have a selective memory complex.

Mind you I wasn’t at the meetings but I would prefer to believe the club.

2.) 04 Feb 2019 21:03:29
He was paid by Chelsea under contract, if his agreement wasn’t honoured that’s not fair but to go on strike and let down fans and talk about a dream move away at every chance is not on and hope the madridista’s turn on him, plus his now talking about hazard moving over there with him, can’t stick the bloke, I do get how these questions are leading for players but don’t keep talking about our club/ players, worry about your front post and keeping those legs closed.

3.) 04 Feb 2019 21:51:41
Strange how footballers are all about contracts, contracts and "my contract says" etc and he accepts a verbal agreement! Probably lashing out because his season has come undone.

4.) 04 Feb 2019 22:02:56
He needs to focus on Real Madrid, his happiness could be short lived if he carrys on performing poorly. His too focused on Chelsea despite leaving.

Best case scenario for us here at Chelsea would be if Kepa continues to perform at a high level. Real Madrid would regret not taking Kepa when they had the chance.

5.) 05 Feb 2019 07:53:47
As a person, Courtois is taller than his sense of loyalty and talks too much. I think he should shut up and concentrate on the keeping clean sheets cos at the moment he's swallowing goals like aspirin.

6.) 05 Feb 2019 13:00:24
From what I read on courtois he didn’t even want to leave athletico. We let probably our best ever keeper in Cech go for courtois to take his place and not reach anywhere near Cech standard. He was so over hyped it’s unbelievable. Yes I agree he is a good goalkeeper but not a great goalkeeper. When the team played well and he only only had to make one or two saves he looked good but when the team had problems that’s when his true ability was there for all to see. I will use David de gea as an example, Utd playing bad yet David de gea is keeping them in games and earning his team upto 20 points a season over the past few years. Courtois doesn’t have the mentality to be a world beater and I’m glad he’s gone.

7.) 05 Feb 2019 14:23:41
U didn't add that he's very slow in reacting with his legs, I am guessing that cos of his height, it takes a very long time for information to go from his Central Nervous System (Brain and Spinal cord) to his effectors (hence poor reaction with his legs) .

8.) 05 Feb 2019 14:35:14
NWBLUE you have hit the nail on the head with the comparison to De Gea. Look no further than what De Gea did against Spurs and Arsenal. Countless saves. When the team played badly so did Courtois.

9.) 05 Feb 2019 18:55:28
four words "he is a clown! "

10.) 05 Feb 2019 22:22:18
Kepa every time.

11.) 05 Feb 2019 23:34:20
Agree Nibby. Kepa all day long for me too. Courtois was a bad bad mistake. He should never have replaced Cech.



23 Jan 2019 18:48:33
Looks like PSG have taken a march on us and are on the verge of signing Parades, a player we wanted but maybe had 2nd thoughts on.

1.) 23 Jan 2019 19:02:34
who cares i never even heard of him at a cost of 40 million. go and spend 80 or 90 and actually buy a top class player and make a statement not some average joe soap from the russian league. golovin or golokvin wat ever his name was apparently was d star of the league an he's strugglin big time at monaco aren't we glad we signed him.

{Ed002's Note - Maybe the issue is your lack of knowledge?}

2.) 23 Jan 2019 19:17:03
maybe either way wel still survive without him.

3.) 23 Jan 2019 20:03:52
he could still sign for us magic mate then you have shot yourself in the foot mate haha keep the faith.

4.) 23 Jan 2019 20:27:26
Survival is one thing, but we should want to flourish! To make top 4 we need strengthening this window beyond Higuain. Fact that PSG want to hijack (perhaps already have hijacked) CFC attempt at deal for Parades suggests to me that he's someone who has been scouted by a number of top teams and might have been just want we needed in terms of improving our midfield and offering competition/ alternative to Jorginho.

5.) 23 Jan 2019 20:29:00
Parades is a good player magic. There is no need to say anything else otherwise. His done well at Roma and Zenit. We have scouted him for a while.

6.) 23 Jan 2019 20:45:23
just saying in general i don't no who he is so not bothered either way im sure if he signs for a big club he must he decent but wel survive with or without him and if its with i hope he's a good player.

7.) 23 Jan 2019 21:30:29
If Barcelona paid £75m for De Jong, I think Chelsea might have to pay top money if the club wants Leandro Parades, there's no way around this one besides there's no arguing that Leandro Parades is a good player (that is if the club wants him and if PSG haven't taken the player? ) .

8.) 23 Jan 2019 21:45:25
I thought PSG had dropped out and now going for Allan of Napoli?

9.) 24 Jan 2019 00:27:46
PSG have financial constraints, given that it’s reported that Allan is valued at around £80m according to some newspapers, it doesn’t seem likely.

10.) 24 Jan 2019 01:53:36
ed donwe have another midfielder in mind if paredes goes PSG?

{Ed002's Note - I am not interested.}



21 Jan 2019 20:31:49
All three domino deals will become official tomorrow! #Higuain #Morata #Piatek.

Im excited with the arrival of Higuain. I really hope we sign Parades too. These two players are loyal servants of Sarri who have played under him at Napoli and Empoli respectively.

Sarri needs more loyalty on the pitch from his players. I suspect we have bad eggs in the team and these transfers will go along way in eradicating the issue. They should be able to promote his tactics and hopefully it rubs off on the others too. Something needs to change for the good of the club though.

Its no coincidence Sarri's predecessors suffered from player power too which led to their downfall.

But with new signings i think we will be fine. I am glad the club are backing sarri and making the requested transfers. I don't think the others in the squad will demotivate big players. I don't agree with Sarri there his obviously frustrated.

Any guess at the bad eggs in the team guys?

1.) 21 Jan 2019 20:59:51
I think Willian and Alonso definitely. Hazard and Luiz maybe. Rüdiger, Azpi, Kanté and Pedro all seem proper professionals in my eyes but could be wrong. Kepa has a very good attitude also he’s like a breath of fresh air compared to Courtois.

2.) 21 Jan 2019 21:07:35
As I’ve said in a previous post, we have now had three managers saying similar things, maybe its best to look at the players who have played under those three managers!

This is only a theory!

3.) 22 Jan 2019 00:14:53
He's been a great player for us, but all three times, this "player power" appears when Hazard gets frustrated. JM values result over his fitness and demands defensive work, Conte plays him false 9, Sarri plays him false 9.

I'm not suggesting, if player power exists here, that it's only him, but it could be a very good place to start.

4.) 22 Jan 2019 07:53:15
I have to agree with the suggestions, Hazard, Willian and Alonso seem to be the ones for me. Courtois was a major player in this all in the past.

I love Hazard for what he does on the pitch but my patience with him is running so thin when he speaks to the press. let's be honest, his been at the club for the past 6-7 years and you would expect professionalism when he opens his mouth but his calling out Madrid each time indirectly. He needs to be patient and stop talking and let nature take its course. If Madrid want him then they will have him for the right price. Its simple.

Personally, Hazard has been great for us and the premier league but if he leaves at the end of the season then that isn't the end of Chelsea. It will be a blow of course. However, the club is bigger than each individual and it will give the platform for other younger players to shine. Plus it would mean the end of another era. The board have tried and continue to do so with him but they have been good in all of this so credit where uts due. If he doesn't want to sign a new contract then we should look to move on quickly though and look for his replacement.

5.) 22 Jan 2019 08:31:16
I’m not sure it is in any way relevant but I think there are four players who have been at Chelsea with the last three managers. Willian, Pedro, Azpilicueta and Hazard.

6.) 22 Jan 2019 10:22:28
I can't imagine Azpi not playing well for any manager. He's too professional and constant.

7.) 22 Jan 2019 12:59:16
Totally agree re player power. It’s important we back the right manager to deal with this. Hopefully Sarri is the man. If not we’re buggared 😅.



19 jan 2019 21:57:05
Have faith guys. We will turn this around. Need a good transfer window now. It is very important.

Its clear the players ain't playing to Sarri's philosophy yet. He was shouting at them to press but obviously they weren't doing it.

Stay positive.

1.) 19 Jan 2019 23:21:27
He needs to find a way to add some spine into the team. Without RLC, I don't know where that comes from? Barkley instead of Kovacic? CHO instead of Pedro / Willian? Ampadu in midfield?

At the moment, the only two players with some Welly are Luiz and Rudi. Even Hazard just looks frustrated, but he's not yelling at team mates and leading.

Hopefully Higuain can help the cause, even if it's just his experience and winner's mentality.

2.) 20 Jan 2019 00:09:16
Press what to Kepa we only go in reverse slow boring football don’t think Sarri knows what to do been the same tempo slow football for weeks.

3.) 20 Jan 2019 06:56:08
Thank goodness, besides Sarri being so predictable, Sarri himself has started seeing that the players are difficult to motivate (which is his fault- not the players) . If I may ask why will the players go out of their skin to play when they know Sarri will stick with them even when they aren't putting in good performances- my point is Alonso will keep playing like rubbish cos Sarri will never start Emerson; Jorginho feels he doesn't have a replacement and clearly has no room for improvement; Willian knows he will definitely start no matter of how bad he plays (meanwhile there's a Hudson Odoi that could be more productive in some days) . Sarri's way of sticking with one player forever even when their back-ups are doing better makes no sense. There's no competition in the team.

4.) 20 Jan 2019 08:31:50
It will all change guys, patience needed even though its gone and wearing thin with many on here. Sarri is obviously frustrated and so are many fans are too.

However, new additions will help the spine of the team because these are all sarri's requests. The board are backing the manager which is great.

I think its fair to criticise the manager with his team selection and late substitutions yestersay but wanting him out so soon is overkill. He needs a proper chance with new signings. If he wanted the team to play like they did yesterday then he doesn't get so angry after the match. Even duting the match he was exploding at our players not pressing.

The players we have are very hard to motivate and i do agree with him here. Afterall these players have a tendency perform when they want. Look at our stats, we finish 1st, then 10th, then 1st, then 5th and now 4th after starting so brilliantly. Same core of players who are aging too. Also remember we don't have a proper striker.

Yes i agree i with frustrations of CHO and Emerson not playing but obviously Sarri doesn't seem to trust them. RLC is being missed so much.

Sarri is a quality manager, he has proven that at Napoli. I have faith that with new addtions we will see the Chelsea that we all want to, attcaking and fluid. However, if we don't after sometime and a fair chance then yes its fair to want a change. But calling for sack now is silly, we are known as the club who don't back their manager and that stigma must go if we are to fix the mentalities of the players.

5.) 20 Jan 2019 11:55:25
CFCShak, I really do respect your opinion a a lot but Sarri is so stubborn, stereotyped and predictable; these are undesirable and unproductive traits in the EPL. The is the league that doesn't give gifts, the league where the best managers are reduced to nothing. At the moment all we can do is pray cos one can't bank on Higuain.
Besides all the Sarri talk, the Chelsea board should strengthened themselves to spend big cos a lot of our players are past their good days esp if the club wants to win laurels.

6.) 20 Jan 2019 22:33:03
If sarris sticks with 1 player for every position how do you the others are playing better makes no sense.

7.) 21 Jan 2019 08:01:31
ADL said same thing about Sarri- not wanting to rotate and sticking with one player for one position (ignoring backups), and I think he was right. I feel it wouldn't have been much of a problem if Sarri is sticking with an exceptional group of players that are young like in Liverpool or Mancity. My point is what will our fate (future) be like as Pedro and Willian (who are in their 30s) are the ones Sarri's decided to stick with, then think of how good they will be next season in a fast league like the EPL as their age increases? Now imagine how good Mancity or liverpool's core players like Sane, Sterling, Salah (in their early 20s) etc will be next season as they grow into their prime- This is part of the reason why the club needs to start thinking of spending on younger exceptional players (or start giving players like Hudson Odoi and Ampadu a big chance to play) . At this rate, I pray it doesn't take us another 3 years before we win the league again.

Juventus want Sarri as their manager and Chelsea want Frank Lampard. Sarri wants to stay at Chelsea but I can't help but think the above may occur.

Juventus are a very well run club and with Sarri they will be a powerhouse. He will be able to implement his style with ease.

Hope the above isn't true. Lampard is nowhere near ready. I wouldn't be surprised by Chelsea though.

1.) 19 May 2019 21:39:21
Words can barely describe how dissappointed I would be with the leaders of Chelsea, if we decide to sack Sarri. This one time we decide to bring in a manager with a completely different philosophy than the one our club's had for many years, and even though we get a very good placement in the league and play to finals, the board is still not satisfied? Firing Sarri would simply reek of incompetence.

2.) 19 May 2019 22:27:23
Don't think the board aren't satisfied EmilSC, think it might be more towards the pathetic toxicity Sarri has received since he's been here that they feel they may need to move on from him. Lampard would bring a better connection with the fans but he's in no way a better coach and i just don't think we'd progress under him. Would youth be given a better chance? Possibly. That for me may be the only real positive i'd see from this appointment.

3.) 20 May 2019 19:12:14
If we appoint Lampard and he begins to struggle then the same fans would cry/ moan for a change. There is no winning with this lot sadly. If he plays defensive stuff then they would cry for attacking.

We have a massive waiting list at the Bridge for season ticket holders, if your unhappy then simply give up your ticket to someone who will be satisfied.

4.) 20 May 2019 21:40:45
a massive waiting list? Hmm, think you've been reading too many inaccurate newspapers mate. We didn't sell out a lot of our games last season, there hasn't been the rush to get them renewed either. The list isn't massive and the demand isn't fever pitch.

If Lampard was installed he'd be given a lot more breathing space then any other manager I can absolutely guarantee that. If this ban isn't lifted, then I am all for Sarri leaving and Frank coming in. Him and Jody know the club inside out and know all about the youths. I think we'd be fine.



12 May 2019 17:50:32
Zappacosta showed today what Chelsea lack for Sarri's system to work. Zappacosta is very good bursting forward.

I am not saying Zappacosta or Emerson are what we need going forward but good wingbacks who can attack and defend will make Sarri's style work.

1.) 12 May 2019 19:56:29
Reece James would seem a perfect fit.

2.) 12 May 2019 22:55:46
MDW I agree. I hope Reece James turns out to be the player we needed since Ashley Cole.

3.) 13 May 2019 23:44:55
Zappacosta and Emerson aren’t great at the attacking end but they do overlap and show good energy. I was at the game and thought Zappa did well.



10 May 2019 19:19:05
Well deserved contract extension David Luiz!

He has won it all at the Bridge;
- Premier league
- FA Cup 2x
- Europa League
- Champions League

The above is in addition to the bucket loads he has won at PSG and Benfica. Was he not called a clown at circus throughout his career at chelsea? Controlled by a kid playing Playstation? Biased punditry at its best.

Has won 17 odd tropies in his career. Not many out there that can boast such records.


1.) 10 May 2019 23:01:55
Well said Shak.

2.) 10 May 2019 23:56:46
Cheers ELI. It's the honest truth, the guy deserves so much more than what he gets from the pundits. His record speaks for itself, he always has to prove his worth.

3.) 11 May 2019 01:59:35
Deserved but he shouldn’t be starting next season he should be a squad player like Terry was. I do think Zouma is a better defender but others will disagree.

4.) 11 May 2019 01:05:44
I think it's a huge sign that sarri will be here for another season too. As we all know he's a huge fan of Luiz. And it's broken Chelsea's over 30's contract rule.

5.) 11 May 2019 09:33:16
Great news, as I have said before, he is a unique player. Rudiger and Luiz as a partnership will be first choice in my opinion.

6.) 11 May 2019 12:04:46
Well said G8. They will only get better a pair.



09 May 2019 23:11:54
Good win given that it wasn't out best game. RLC is the man for us going forward.

1.) 10 May 2019 02:05:54
Keep him fit and we’ve got one of the next best midfielders on the planet and that’s not even being biased.



09 May 2019 18:18:19
It's pretty certain to be Eden Hazard's last Chelsea performance at Stamford Bridge tonight.

I would have loved for him to stay forever as he is the King at the bridge where he is adored by the fans. Sadly, he will just be another player at Madrid where he will be compared to Ronaldo's stats. Hopefully, he won't be a Coutinho. His too good for that!

All good things come to an end unfortunately. I am very thankful that he played for my club for 7 years and bought us some of the finest memories.

Enjoy one last time.

1.) 09 May 2019 23:09:06
What memories he isn't a big time player in my book
Great skillful player
But big games goes missing name 1 massive match he made a difference
Drogba lamps Terry essien ballack desailly de matteo poyet petrescu Dixon wise le saux cech ivanovich la beouef de matteo gullit hoddle are all ahead of him in my list of greats
Drogba is king by a million miles.

2.) 10 May 2019 08:50:25
Oh give over Gola. The guy has almost single handedly got us too 4 this year, and was POTY for his first title winning season, has scored loads of goals vs the top 6 sides and just last year scored the winner in the FA cup final off the top of my head as a “big match”. Ridiculous post, the guy is absolute class, and we should all cherish having him at the club. The guys you mentioned are good, and many of them legends, but to say they are all above Hazard? Really.

3.) 10 May 2019 22:14:41
Yes really imo.

If the ban stands then Chelsea will trigger the extension in Giroud's contract and look to recall Batshuayi or Abraham.

If the ban is lifted then we are likely to find out in July leaving it bang in the middle of the transfer window.

Chelsea are very much interested in Coutinho as a potential Hazard replacement. Asensio and Zaha are aalso mentioned.

There is also interest in Cavani for the striker position. PSG looking to sell him due to his recent fall out with Neymar.

Personally I would settle for Coutinho and Cavani. Coutinho is a proven player, he is still young and on form is world class. He is the ideal haaard replacement for me.

Lol Mrs Costa your intelligence is beyond belief haha. You must have direct sources within the board room to have come out with that level of garbage. If that was to be the case then the board would just manage the playing squad.

Give the manager credit, the tactics he employed yesterday worked when we won 2-0 earlier on in the season. So he simply reverted back to them. It's not rocket science.

Exactly Tom, in my opinion he has had a fantastic season. Not only has he got us 3rd and into the champions league, he has also got us into two cup finals and more importantly he has changed our style of football in doing so. He hashad a great seasonal and rightfully so he won't be short of admirers in Italy from massive clubs.

Chelsea are known for bad press when it comes to sacking managers and this will be another that will create bad press for us. He finishes ahead of Poch and gets two finals and gets chop. It would be terrible.

I don't get it, majority of our fans were crying to see some attacking football at Chelsea to move away from this defensive dross. As soon as we get a manager and ask him to implement attacking football we moan, we boo him and effectively boot him out because it isn't working out. Nothing working straight away. Klopp, Poch, Pep etc all had time to work with the squad. Obviously the core of fans at the clubs and their difference is huge. Surely Chelsea won't sack Sarri because of the fans. That would be silly.

Where the F is the patience these days? Rome wasn't built in one day. We have some real bunch of Instant success winning fans at the bridge.

Dave I 2nd your comments. I was really baffled at the flat at atmosphere at the bridge vs Watford.
