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.

Oh boy, is Koulibaly a beast of a center back. Yes, he did get wrecked by Salah, but that can happen to anyone when Salah's on this level. Just imagine Rudiger and Koulibaly together, would be such a strong, fast pairing, where both are capable of passing well. Know that he'd cost more than a fortune, and that dealing with de Laurentiis is near impossible. But what an addition he would be to any team in the world.


1.) 12 Dec 2018 01:28:53
I agree i think we need a top CB as well as Striker and RW Koulibaly or Skriniar would be perfect.

{Ed0333's Note - Koulibaly is an absolute beast. He would strengthen any defense in the world, or even Upamecano from Leipzig would be great for you guys.

2.) 12 Dec 2018 04:41:42
Koulibaly is quality. Never heard of upamecano ed0333, I’ll have to try watch a few of his games.

{Ed001's Note - you will be impressed, Upamecano is incredible.}

3.) 12 Dec 2018 04:57:40
I’ve heard of him but never watched him. Think De Ligt will be the future best defender though. Unreal that boy and already a leader.

{Ed001's Note - you really think he is that good? He has been dreadful every time I see him. No positional sense at all.}

4.) 12 Dec 2018 07:02:31
Tbh I don’t watch him every week I’ve only followed him in the champions league but I’ve been impressed. I’d still obviously rather Koulibaly or Skriniar to partner Rudiger though we’d be next level then.

{Ed001's Note - do you not think Koulibaly is too similar to Rudiger? They are both all physical power and pace, surely you need a Luiz/Ampadu ball player alongside him?}

5.) 12 Dec 2018 07:56:04
How is Upamecano on the ball? Is he 'just' a beast or also a good ball player?

{Ed001's Note - he is actually very decent on the ball, but not at the level of Ampadu or Luiz. But a level or two above Rudiger.}

6.) 12 Dec 2018 08:34:23
He sounds like a very good signing then. What I don't get, however, is how you seem to not rate Rudiger at all on the ball? I actually think he makes very few mistakes, and every once in a while, he makes passes like the one David Luiz made in the weekend. At least, I think he's quite decent on the ball!

7.) 12 Dec 2018 09:57:40
What do you think of Benjamin Pavard, Jonathan Tah and Niklas Stark, Ed001?
Would they be good signings for Chelsea at CB?

{Ed001's Note - Pavard I like, doesn't hurt that he is good enough on the ball to not look out of place at full back in the World Cup. Looks like he could be a good ball playing centre back.

Tah is excellent too, not sure he is quite good enough on the ball, but he is certainly close to being good enough. He is one of those players that could play alongside a ball player or a powerhouse and fit together with them.

I can't comment on Stark as I have only seen him play midfield.}

8.) 12 Dec 2018 10:15:29
I think these are some plausible options to go for. Getting Rugani or Romagnoli is a hassle in itself.

9.) 12 Dec 2018 21:19:29
We’ve Ampadu there already just use him more like Ed said he’d complement Rudiger or Zouma very well imo.



07 Dec 2018 10:50:19
I've just seen that Bakayoko has got a FIFA inform, and although that's not the best descriptor of how well a player has been playing, it is an indication. However, I saw a lot of Milan fans saying that he was their best player all throughout November, and that he might just be one of their best signings in the last few years (not that the last part is such an achievement) .
Regardless, I'm glad to see him do better, and I actually did like him whilst playing for us, and he always seemed to do very well in the biggest matches. Perhaps we're going to regret giving Milan the option of buying him (which I believe to have read - not something I'm entirely sure of though, maybe, just maybe Ed would tell? ;) ) .
Can't really see him playing in our current system, considering how he played most of the time, but in his best matches, I think he would've played Kante's role really, really well. What do you guys think?


1.) 07 Dec 2018 16:35:15
Are you really talking about Bakayoko having a good game for us? :D i haven't seen a player who was so lost on the picth before or after him.

2.) 08 Dec 2018 14:24:43
Surely that's the on-going problem at Chelsea - we don't give players enough time to show their ability. Baka was reportedly awful at the start of the season, but Milan kept playing him and are now reaping the rewards. Just think of players who were never given long enough at Chels: de Bruyne, Salah, Lukaku as a start.



01 Dec 2018 12:07:23
Has anyone seen the video with Zola on Chelsea's Instagram? Reckon it's just some stupid PR stunt. Can't help getting a slight hope, that there actually is an exciting announcement to come, but it's just such a dumb video, that it's probably something just for a FIFA signing or whatever.


1.) 01 Dec 2018 13:22:47
It's bizarre, but I'm sucked in.

2.) 01 Dec 2018 15:21:14
what was it about.

3.) 01 Dec 2018 18:39:58
Sponsorship nonsense.

4.) 01 Dec 2018 20:04:20
If it were sponsorship bs the sponsor would be obvious. So I don't think it is.

It might be Kante's contract rather than a new player though?

5.) 02 Dec 2018 07:18:27
Hazard perhaps?



20 Oct 2018 08:40:15
As usual, I'm really looking forward to today's game. I don't know what to expect from United - they could've gotten a big morale boost from their last victory, but we should still be the clear favourites, which we'll hopefully live up to.
I think and hope that it'll be a win, perhaps 2-0.




19 Oct 2018 22:53:25
Hello Ed02.
I know that you don't really answer Chelsea-related transfer questions, but I was wondering if you could perhaps tell us a bit about Mr. Abramovic and what is happening at Chelsea in regards to ownership and stadium plans.
Understand it if you do not wish to do so, but I'm just curious as to what's happening :)


{Ed002's Note - Truly not worth the grief Emil Sorry

1.) 20 Oct 2018 08:37:26
I fully understand. You have a nice weekend!

As a Dane I hear so much hype of AC, some of which is justified, some which is simply rubbish put out by the media and so-called experts.
However, I get why AC and his father would get the idea that he's good enough to play as a starter for a top 10 club, as so many people in Denmark seem to be thinking that's the case.
Same with Bendtner a few years ago, and while AC's obviously VERY different, much more mature atc., atc., it seems quite common for Danish people to expect way too from our talents, and the players themselves seem to get deluded because of this.
I do think it would be a mistake to let AC go, but no one should give the club ultimatums and expect to come out on top, perhaps unless you're Eden Hazard or of similar caliber. AC, however, is nowhere near that level, and if he truly means what he's said, he should just be moved on.

Would the deal for Vecino mean that Zappacosta would perhaps go to Inter?


{Ed001's Note - I don't know sorry, but it is certainly a possibility.}

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but it sure seems the source to these rumours is quite simply the Metro? .

I must say, that I would welcome Sarri with open arms as well, as I would with whoever is appointed manager, no matter how stupid a decision I might find that. And I fully agree with TomB - this isn't a case of just being politically correct, as what he's said isn't just politically wrong but simply things you'd never hear from a proper human being with wit and just a tiny respect for others. And fair if you do not care about what he's said, that's up to you, but think of what our sponsors would say if Chelsea's primary outside face were to say that of thing? We haven't always been the least controversial team, as has been mentioned, so I couldn't imagine the media going light on us. And after all, football is very much about the business end nowadays.

I don't think Morris was in the picture either, what I'm saying is just that I think he's done enough to at least be considered, which he doesn't seem to have been.

I think the first few games with Mourinho after buying Cesc and Diego, we were playing some of the most beautiful football I've ever seen. Especially, I recall Schürlle's goal against Burnley as a symptom of how well we were playing at that point. I also think that we played extraordinarily in some of the games with Conte.

Every once in a while, it's nice to be reminded that there's a world not only surrounding football, and although these sites are football-related, I myself would enjoy reading random anecdotes on here as well!
