Poch has just signed an extension. Guess he was never really an option, but no doubt he'd been an excellent choice. Really hope clearance is provided soon!




18 May 2018 11:46:56
Could any of you Eds perhaps shed a light on what happened Wednesday night in regards to Chelsea's managerial situation? Would be highly appreciated!


{Ed001's Note - no sorry, I don't know.}

1.) 18 May 2018 16:04:00
Fair, one cannot know everything ;)

{Ed001's Note - sadly no. I wish I could though!}

2.) 18 May 2018 20:03:47
Apparently it could seriously be Poch to Chelsea. I'd be very surprised and confused though.

3.) 19 May 2018 09:59:29
Where did you hear the from Jackson?

4.) 19 May 2018 19:11:55
Apparently some guy claims it on twitter. Probably not true, but it's strange that it's even being touted as a possibility.



10 Mar 2018 18:22:22
We definately need to start Zappa against Barca! Always gives his all, and quite a threat offensively, too!


1.) 11 Mar 2018 09:25:22
agree . I prefer him too. not as physically strong but for me can offer more. more games he plays the more consistent and better he will get.



28 May 2017 12:07:05
Hey ED. I'm not sure if this is one of the questions that you don't like, but hopefully that isn't the case - at least, it isn't my intention to waste your time. But seeing how other teams such as City and United are already bringing in some solid reenforcements, could you perhaps provide some information about Chelsea nearing any deals? Perhaps drop a few names as Well? I understand if it's not possible, I was just hoping for some Nice updates after yesterday's dissapointment!
Regardless - you have yourself a nice Day - take Care!


{Ed002's Note - There is no way for me to try and anser questions about the ti,img of transfers.}

1.) 28 May 2017 14:01:43
Okay, I understand - and Sorry to bother, I'just struck by some mean hangovers and thought you might have some uplifting news 😉.

{Ed002's Note - There is always uplifting news Emil - summer is just about here, the butterflies are out.....}

2.) 28 May 2017 16:23:08
News of Bakayoko and Naby Keita signing for Chelsea would be more welcome than 30 degrees outside while I have to prepare for exams though :P.



11 Nov 2016 12:21:21
Hello Ed. I was just wondering if you could provide an update on these (or at least just some of them) players that I've seen linked with a move to Chelsea (some more realistic than others) :
Javier Pastore, Kasper Dolberg, Moussa Dembele (Celtic), Bazoer, Kondogbia and Niklas Sule.
I'll understand it if you haven't got the time!
Have a nice weekend :)


{Ed002's Note - There will be an update fairly soon.}

1.) 11 Nov 2016 14:44:17
Hahaha I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve, waiting for the presents the next day :-P.

2.) 11 Nov 2016 14:44:17
Hahaha I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve, waiting for the presents the next day :-P.

{Ed002's Note - I am guessing Monday. I have just finished a short Liverpool one and my PA is threatening me with no more today.}

3.) 11 Nov 2016 17:46:28
No rush, Ed, we all know you're busy :-) But I am certainly looking forward to it. Your info is the best.

There's been a lot of talk recently that the club needs leadership. This has let me to wonder, in general, if clubs sometimes look especially for players with leadership qualities? If that's the case, do they then try to judge their leadership from the way the players act on the field? Or perhaps from insiders knowing of the players' personality?
And is it possible within a short time to gain new leaders? Obviously, Van Dijk springs to mind as a player who's taken on leadership incredibly fast, but surely a lot of that must be down to the chemistry that new player gets with his team-mates?
Hope my question makes sense, otherwise you can feel free to just delete it ;)

Paredes off to PSG. Really think that's a shame - he looks like a brilliant player who would give Jorginho proper competition and perhaps a player who could also have played the other midfield positions.
I am one of the few people on here that rate Jorginho, but he obviously needs competition and and a back up, in case he gets injured or suspended. I think both Kovacic and Ampadu looked like they weren't able to fill in Jorginho's shoes, and since I do agree that Jorginho's level has been declining recently, I think it's fair to say that we should be bringing in a back up. Therefore I think Paredes to PSG is a shame. Really hope that Ampadu proves me wrong, however - he didn't get a lot of runs to prove his abilities in the position, and hopefully it's too soon to say that he can't play the position.


1.) 29 Jan 2019 10:23:46
It's unfortunate that Maria and her team don't see value in him 34 million in this present day transfer market. Well I will wait until after the summer transfer to tell if she's doing a good job but all don't look well to me since she assumed that office. Imo we really need an upgrade in the midfield than mere back up player.
I hope Jorginho/ Kante decisions won't hunt Sarri future.

2.) 29 Jan 2019 10:48:35
£35m for a back up. 🤭 Club have done well this window, higuain, keeping CHO even if it’s for another 6 months. Signing a brilliant youngster in pulisic. 👍🏼.

3.) 29 Jan 2019 11:07:43
Don’t get me wrong - I too think we’ve done well, but I think we need competition for Jorginho. But yes, £35 mil would be too much for a back up.

4.) 29 Jan 2019 13:34:27
I think we have more than enough in midfield with the likes of Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Barkley, Ampadu and RLC. 3 positions and we have 6 players. Almost 2 in every midfield position.

Kovacic did well in the regista role and is easily capable in that position. He passes well and is actually very good defensively. He could be the cover we need if the former got injured.

However, I do suspect a final push for Barella. I can't see the Kovacic deal being permanent in the summer witout RM asking for Hazard or a big fee in return. Barella may be the cheaper and better option.

5.) 29 Jan 2019 14:08:49
I’m sure we would have paid the £34m. PSG just likely won the race. It’s not as if a choice between Chelsea and PasG would mean that Paredes would definitely choose Chelsea.



26 Jan 2019 19:44:38
If CHO were to leave, surely the club would buy a replacement? Wondering if they'd be willing to buy a player like Nicolas Pepe or if they'd go for a cheaper option? Sarri seems keen to use Willian on The left, so perhaps Fekir might be brought in for The right wing?


1.) 26 Jan 2019 19:56:54
They should spend the money on the best young talent they can find.



29 Dec 2018 10:02:51
Just read on the Liverpool page, that Asensio is available. Also says that he "has already rejected one offer of being involved in a part exchange". Can't tell if it's in any way related to us, but regardless, I think he'd be a very, very good choice, if Eden were to leave. What do you guys think? And could you perhaps say how you feel about Asensio, Ed01? :)
Also, happy new year to all!


{Ed001's Note - very good player mate but I do have worries about his attitude. He seems to expect to get games without performing.}

1.) 29 Dec 2018 12:51:40
Would be brilliant signing; a lot more so than Pulisic ( who I like )

2.) 29 Dec 2018 13:23:36
What I am scared about dealing with Real is that they would probably want Hazard in the return.

Ed001 do you think Real want Hazard? Or they have different targets.

{Ed001's Note - if they really wanted him he would already be there mate.}

3.) 29 Dec 2018 13:30:46
Thanks for the quick reply mate, i do hope he stays.

I can't see why he is so desperate to join them (maybe there is a child who lives in Madrid we don't know about, aka Courtouis)

{Ed001's Note - it is bizarre. They are a mess but kids and players still seem to love them.}

4.) 29 Dec 2018 16:04:22
Also, their fans aren't too shy to boo of the very biggest legends of the club.

5.) 29 Dec 2018 17:13:03
What about asking Bale in return for Hazard? Would anyone take that.

6.) 29 Dec 2018 17:31:59
An about-to-be 30 year old winger who couldn't stay injury-free in Spain?


7.) 29 Dec 2018 19:16:45
How did we allow ourselves to be well-overtaken by Liverpool in the 'clubs players want to join' stakes? So sad.

8.) 29 Dec 2018 21:35:43
I must have missed that Darren. Please enlighten me when that happened.

9.) 30 Dec 2018 11:26:06
Well, the inference is that Asensio turned down joining us in favour of wanting to join Liverpool.



17 Dec 2018 11:14:32
I don't know why, but I've got a feeling that we'll see a top player join us in January, that we don't expect, and one that the media hasn't really been mentioning. It's not really based on anything other than the fact that Kepa seemed to come out of nowhere, and it is afterall just a gut feeling, but I wouldn't be surprised to see us make a big signing, that none of the medias have been talking about.


1.) 17 Dec 2018 13:35:50
Realistically we desperately need a forward if we are to have any slender chance of winning the league. I think if we remain in contention by the time January is here then maybe we look for star quality, otherwise it will be a stop gap and I suspect we will push for Wilson. Not entirely sure my self but anything is better than Morata on current form.

Rumours regarding Pulisic are gathering pace and maybe he is someone we sign in January or may be we complete the deal in January for him to arrive in the summer. I think it's clear that he is the perferred choice for the right sided midfield position. It makes sense because he should be the one that is easily attainable and is of star quality.

I can't see any other transfers unless any of the targeted defenders become available.

2.) 17 Dec 2018 13:54:24
Three players definitely out and maybe a fourth who’s going, will make some fans happy.

One supposed top player joining and the club are working on a second player but his club don’t want to sell him this window.

3.) 17 Dec 2018 14:56:41
Sarri’s signings have been very good so far but Pulisic doesn’t convince me. We desperately need someone who can score goals and Pulisic doesn’t.

4.) 17 Dec 2018 21:59:03
Slight change. Now looks like we have definitely got two of our targets in the upcoming window.

5.) 17 Dec 2018 22:47:12
Tomb who are the two targets we have got for the upcoming window mate.

Kante would also walk into every single team in the world, in my opinion.

Well, Ed's said a lot of times that Lyon won't sell more than one key player a year, or something like that, so that would seem very unrealistic.

Both players play for their respective national teams, first of all. Haven't seen either of them play, but I believe the Eds have been writing, that Barella is seen by many as a potential captain for Italy in the future.

All I've seen from both players has been on YouTube, so it goes without saying that I've only seen the best parts of the players. However, Barella in my eyes seems like a very good box to box midfielder, that can also go out wide, and he seems to make absolutely wonderful passes - from what I've seen, I'm sure he'd had a lot more assists with better team mates! Think he'd be a perfect fit to either the left or right central midfield.

Paredes, on the other hand, seems to be almost the same as Jorginho, from what I've seen. Should be taken in regard, that most of the videos I've seen must've been against Russian teams, so I don't know how he's done against better teams.

Tammy Abraham i suppose.

One of the things I really like about what I've seen of him (which, admittedly is very little) is that he seems to see passes that very few players see, kind of like our very own Eden. I think that Eden and Pulisic, switching around the front three, cutting inwards would really tear apart defences once they'd get to know each other and the way the other plays. Obviously, it won't be important, if Eden leaves, but if that's the case, then I believe we'd get a player, quite similar of Eden, but without that bit of end product, that Eden's bringing at the moment.

I have been advocating that we keep him as well, but I honestly don't know what to think anymore.
Bringing on Zappacosta instead of CHO or Giroud yesterday, when we need to score two goals, is proof of how little grip Sarri has. I don't think I've ever seen a manager be that unambitious in a cup game, and honestly I don't really care if he stays or not. However, I do care about the players. I think yesterday, at least in the first half, they tried. Hazard took runs he hasn't taken before (at least I haven't noticed), but still I feel this will be the third manager sacked because of player power, and it's got to stop.

I do agree that yes, Barkley works harder than RLC. I do agree that yes, Barkley is more dangerous offensively than Kovacic, and yes I also agree that Barkley has a better shot than the other two.
I do not, however, agree that Barkley is a better player. Either he doesn't have the sense of when to utilise his skills or he's not confident enough, 'cause most games, all you see him do is stay central and pass sideways or backwards. Almost never goes for any decisive passes, almost never drifts out wide the way Kante does, and very rarely shoots from outside the box, which in my opinion is something he's way better at doing than the average player.
A player with his skillset should be getting so much more out of it, but in my opinion, he doesn't seem able to translate his skills into his play, and therefore I think both Kovacic and RLC are better options than Barkley, apart from the Barkley we've seen 3-4 times this season, including the game against Huddersfield, where he showed that once he utilises his talent, he's a great option.

Don't know why I said Morata and not RLC, which was what I meant. But a bit curious that the plan has always been to buy another winger regardless of CHO leaving? Or perhaps that was simply due to my brain fart? ;)


{Ed001's Note - Chelsea have been looking to sign players for that role anyway, which is probably a large part of the reason the lad wants to go.}
