A lot of posts this season have focused on the poor performances of Bakayoko.
When the drums were beating last year out his impending signing, I posted that in my opinion Chalaboa was a better prospect. I got totally slaughtered for this opinion.

I still think Chalaboa will go onto have a fantastic career but he no longer plays for our club so I've let my interest wain.
Bakayoko is in his first season at our club and like lots of players before him, he is finding it difficult to come tro terms with the Premiership.

We don't want anymore regretful premature departures from our club.
So, we should in my opinion, stop looking for perceived instant success and start giving this lad our full support.

Emenalo going to Monaco?
If correct, good luck to him!


1.) 27 Nov 2017 18:19:53
yeah. appointed already i think.



09 Nov 2017 22:44:21
Michy and Morata both picked up injuries although the Morata toe injury is supposedly minor!


1.) 10 Nov 2017 02:58:32
I get more anxiety than enjoyment from watching games during the international break in fear one of our players will get hurt. Every time they're tackled i fear the worst! . Especially with Hazard as everyone loves to hack him down a few times a game.

2.) 10 Nov 2017 12:20:18
I heard Drinkwater had a reoccurrence of his injury during the Man United game, I don't know how true?
Batshuayi and Drinkwater are injury concerns for now?

3.) 10 Nov 2017 15:31:30
Depending on who you believe but it sounds like the Drinkwater injury is a minor calf problem!

4.) 10 Nov 2017 16:15:01
Some News outlets are reporting Bakayoko in pain today at a routine training, don't know what to believe.

Hi Eds,

Do you know if we are putting a block on the Kennedy to Newcastle loan?


{Ed001's Note - I don't know about Newcastle, but his leaving on loan was contingent on reinforcements arriving.}

1.) 31 Aug 2017 08:16:49
i read somewhere that he won't be leaving if Chelsea doesn't get another LWB.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 08:17:57
Thanks for the clarification Ed. Keeping him would be better than making a panic buy!

{Ed001's Note - exactly and you are not exactly blessed with a massive squad with lots of spare parts to fill in.}

Happy ish with that draw.
I think Barcelona are Still looking to find a patten of play that threatens the opposition.


1.) 11 Dec 2017 11:46:32
great at going forward. but there defence. has weaknesses. If we attack. we can score. we just can't sit back.

2.) 11 Dec 2017 11:50:47
Have to agree here.

I think we have enough in the locker to beat them over the two legs.

3.) 11 Dec 2017 12:02:57
I’m just glad we avoided Burnley palace or West Ham.

4.) 11 Dec 2017 12:30:10
dihanio, I like your optimism and God-willing we will beat them but take it easy it's Barcelona we are talking about.
I guess if we succeed in the winter transfer window, it will greatly boost our chance.

5.) 11 Dec 2017 13:06:11
The transfer widow is open for them as well but a lot of the good players are cup tied.

6.) 11 Dec 2017 14:31:17
For instance if you have Alex Sandro (who is cup-tied) you have a player that the coach can be confident playing in the EPL while M. Alonso is well rested for the midweek champions league fixture.

7.) 11 Dec 2017 18:03:01
Obinna, my point is, Barcelona can sign players in the window as well as us!
Our squad in my opinion, lacks natural left sided balance and has for a few seasons. So any quality left players would be welcome.

8.) 11 Dec 2017 19:53:16
TomB; What did you insinuate when you said, "but a lot of good players are cup-tied".

9.) 11 Dec 2017 20:57:14
Not insuating anything, just stating a fact that a lot of good players play for teams that qualified for the Champions League and if they have played for those teams they are Cup Tied for the competition.

10.) 12 Dec 2017 09:24:31
Good you are stating a fact, I am concentrating on how my team Chelsea can be better not Barcelona (they can go ahead and sign whomever they want) but I know Chelsea's chance of beating Barcelona and doing well in the UCL will be boosted if we get some players in whether they are cup-tied or not (esp LWB, STRIKER AND ATTACKING MIDFIELDER) to alleviate the problem of crowded fixtures.
Today's news (from Conte's words) is stating that Morata is feeling tired and having a back problem; imagine this happening when the Barcelona game is close, you can rest him and play another 'coach trusted' striker (who is cup-tied for the UCL) so that he can play at optimal ability in the Barcelona game.

{Ed001's Note - Morata played at the weekend with the problem and a lot of painkillers. Probably explains his poor performance.}

11.) 12 Dec 2017 14:24:11
I don’t have much faith in mid season signings but if it helps the team/ squad all well and good.
When we reflect on our squad this year we see a least three players who are struggling in there first Premiership season but one could argue that signing any quality player in this window means there is more chance they will be settled into the club and league by the start of next season.
I’m sure we will stuff Barcelona over the two legs. So I’m a very happy supporter!



10 Dec 2017 22:46:09
Hi Eds,
I may well have missed any updates from Everton on the fitness of RB. Have you guys got any news?
I'm not a massive fan so I'm hoping we miss out on signing him but I guess as we tried in the summer we may still have an interest?


{Ed002's Note - you are on the wrong page Tom.}

1.) 10 Dec 2017 23:08:26
Am I?

{Ed002's Note - Try the Everton page.}

2.) 10 Dec 2017 23:19:12
OK will do. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.



10 Dec 2017 17:55:53
60 mins gone in the Manchester Derby and how lucky are we to have sold Matic?
He is total RUBBISH.




09 Dec 2017 12:30:12
Just taking my seat at the so called football stadium West Ham call home.
So far away from the action I need binoculars to see the match. A truly dreadful place.
London derbies are never easy but come on my mighty blues!


1.) 09 Dec 2017 12:56:56
Hope you have good day Tom! I really like Morata as a player but he seriously needs to be stronger and stop jumping on the floor, he’s not going to get free kicks just for falling over. You’re not at Madrid anymore Alvaro!

2.) 09 Dec 2017 14:29:20
I’m still sitting in my seat feeling very dejected.
My first thoughts are, ’we could be playing this game all week and not score.
So many players looked off the pace? We moved the ball so slowly? We lost out on so many 50/ 50 tackles? Did we really need to start with three central midfielders?
In so many ways it reminded me of our performance at Palace.
We just have to put in behind us, and avoid meeting any hammers fans for a few months!



06 Dec 2017 20:55:58
Ampidou, Lampidou, looks call the whole thing off.


1.) 06 Dec 2017 22:10:44
Lovely 4th goal. Michy lays the ball off for Musonda to slot in.
The ladsthat impressed me was Scott and Ampidou.

2.) 06 Dec 2017 23:39:21
Did you bring something back in your bag when you went to Azerbaijan Tom mate that's a random 1st post lol.

3.) 07 Dec 2017 11:01:27
I agree Franco when you look at the above post it does look a bit random but to sort of understand it, you have to look at a post further down.
Correctly Frank picked me up on my drunken spelling of our young Welsh stars name.
Alcohol and posts are not a good mix!

Them going one up within 6 mins and giving them something to hang to wasn’t part of the plan.
Unfortunately I was in the company of a West Ham season ticket holder tonight and he said that’s the best they have played since they beat us in the League Cup.
How lucky are we to support a team that wins more games that it loses plus wins competitions!

I was at the game and although I was a long way from the pitch (isn’t everyone at that athletics stadium) I can’t be having we were outplayed.
I guess people see things differently on TV than at the match.

Apologies for what will be my very last post on this site.
JD, I’m not sure if people agreed or disagreed with my posts but I always tried to be positive.

Cat I’m sorry you didn’t believe my posts sent on my many away trips but I can assure you as a long standing Chelsea supporter I was at the games I mentioned.
