Alfredo Pedulla also saying that Chelsea have opened talks with Kostas Manolas' rep. I don't know how true but its fine by me if we can get this one cos he's a really big fish (one of the best out there) .

obinna 123

1.) 17 Jun 2018 07:32:35
I don't see that a centre half would be a priority.

2.) 17 Jun 2018 11:09:14
i don't think he's any better than what we have been honest he's overrated for me.

3.) 17 Jun 2018 12:53:49
His one of those players who has a lot of pace for CB and that gets him out of trouble, surely we wouldn’t be looking at CB when we don’t know If we will be playing 3 or 4 at the back. Where as midfielder and wingers is priority whatever or whom ever comes in,

4.) 17 Jun 2018 15:21:58
Kostas Manolas overrated? Funny. Which of our central defenders do you think is better than him?

5.) 17 Jun 2018 15:46:05
azpi rudiger for definete an id also dissaprove because it would hinder christensens progress an every1 will be moaning youth don't get a chance.

6.) 17 Jun 2018 16:53:31
Yes, Azpi and Rudi are at least add good.

7.) 17 Jun 2018 17:04:43
Azpi will likely move back to the full back position next season so it won't affect him. As for Christensen, if Sarri is appointed manager he'll likely be a starter. He's the only CB that is really suitable to flurish in Sarri's play style. Add that to the fact Luiz is likely off with Cahill and Zouma, we'll be in need of another CB. Only person this will have a negative affect on may be Rudiger as i can't see him performing well in a two CB partnership. Manolas will be more suitable in that area for me but personally someone like Rugani would be better than both.

8.) 17 Jun 2018 18:51:14
Good opinions guys. I think given that Sarri will be the manager, another CB is probably not needed but ignore they choose to buy one then Manalos fits the bill. His a quality defender and within budget.

CB: Christensen, Rudiger, Zouma, Cahill, Luiz
RB: Azpi, Moses
LB: Alonso, Emerson, Zappa

Personally I think Cahill and Luiz will be phased out or sold. I think it's wise to keep them for experience. Luiz is still good enough but not sure Sarri will risk him. Zouma got right battle on to save his career. I think a CB of either Manolas or Rugani will be bought. Gives us options. 4 main ones.

9.) 17 Jun 2018 20:40:37
Even if his not overrated he isn’t much of an improvement on what we have and would take chunk of any budget we do have. Christensen will be better than last season. rudifer too, Cahill and Luiz maybe could move on but we would have Zouma back and Azpilicueta can play there. How much would Manolas cost? £35m? That’s almost the Malcom fee or golovin or most of bailey fee, half of Savic fee. See my point. far more important areas than adding a CB unless it’s a world class player who’s contracts up or club looking to sell. But should be last position to be looked at.

10.) 18 Jun 2018 00:11:58
i completely agree with your point matt martin only way it makes sense to buy manolas is if we raise the fee from selling luiz an zouma or cahill luiz etc.

11.) 18 Jun 2018 09:43:36
So what's wrong if you replaced D. Luiz with Manolas.

12.) 18 Jun 2018 17:53:45
Obinna, Manolas is fine but an in form Luiz is far better. Plus Manolas would cost a fair amount and Luiz wouldn't fetch much in return.

13.) 19 Jun 2018 17:16:11
zouma could replace Luiz in squad and we’d be making money rather than spending money,



13 Jun 2018 00:42:14
Sky sports reporting that Chelsea and Juventus is in talks Stefan Savic of Athletico Madrid.

obinna 123

1.) 13 Jun 2018 08:03:29
promote a youth player instead please.

2.) 13 Jun 2018 09:07:30
Definitely or Zouma is to come back don’t need him imo.

3.) 13 Jun 2018 09:09:46
Haighton87; will your reason for saying, 'promote a youth player' be that Savic isn't good enough? Though Chelsea should be looking out for better players, I think he has improved a good deal at Athletico Madrid since the last time he was at ManCity so let's not be in hurry to judge this one.

Maybe Chelsea's interest in Savic stems from the 'DEBRUYNESQUE MISTAKE': Comes to Premier league- doesn't do well- leaves the Premier league to another league, does well a bit- returns back to the Premier league and becomes the bomb. Besides that, if Juventus is interested in Savic- then he must be doing something right as a defender.

4.) 13 Jun 2018 11:33:14
we have had the best youth teams in the country for a number of years now and i think now is as good a time as any to start bringing some of them through.

we bought Emerson as "competition" for Alonso and yes he had a few good performances, i would have rather them promote a youth player to give that competition - young and hungry to prove their worth.

*cough Jay Dasilva *cough.

Also, I don't judge players on their interest from other clubs and certainly not Juve.

5.) 13 Jun 2018 12:18:32
following on from that, players like sterling, RLC, Abraham, Hudson Odoi, Mount, Chalobah, get them in an around the squad - with the experienced players. Then add in some young "flair" asensio

if we don't give them a chance, someone else does - we are back here again complaining we never gave them a go.

6.) 13 Jun 2018 12:27:33
Great post Haighton87.

7.) 13 Jun 2018 16:50:11
The club wants these players to come through more than you; cos at least it will save them loads of money which can be put into other projects of the club; but bringing them through should be done properly and at the right time so that it doesn't become counterproductive to both the club and these young players that you listed in your post.

8.) 14 Jun 2018 08:20:50
obinna 123. Like I said, i think now is as good time as any, don't you?

9.) 14 Jun 2018 21:23:53
Not all of them are ready for Chelsea's first team though some are ready but for the fact that someone else plays their position at the club very well (at the moment) will make it difficult for to come through and develop well coupled with the fact at this stage of their careers they need to be playing regularly.

*Odoi should go on a 2 season loan to be ready come back and take a spot when Willian would be on the decline.

*Let's wait and see how well Loftus Cheek performs at the world cup before we conclude on him but he will be perfect for the Chelsea squad if he stays one more year at Palace- playing regularly. He is the only one carve a niche for himself out of the present Chelsea squad.

*Mount still needs a 2 season loan, come back and be accessed.

*Abraham- 2 season loan will be good and then check his development.

*Dujon Sterling can play as backup to our RB next season but that would mean letting one of our RWB leave.

*Jay DaSilva- 2 year out on loan mainly cos he have 3 players that can play LWB ahead him right now at Chelsea- M. Alonso, Kenedy and Palmieri.



09 Jun 2018 20:54:18
Chelsea's transfer for the summer is gradually taking shape:

* A goal keeper should be coming in if Courtois goes or just maybe Courtois might still stay.

* Seri or another box to box central midfielder should be coming in for Drinkwater.

* A central defender should be coming in for David Luiz. Another central defender might come in should someone else leave but highly improbable

* One attacking midfielder should be coming in ; maybe another attacking midfielder might come in too if Willian joins Man U.

* A striker but that will depend on a lot of factors.

Blue_Nose, i don't understand your post. What does it mean?

3.) 10 Jun 2018 18:46:33
Theres a bloke who you runs a chelsea transfer rumor channel on youtube. sharing info from some seemingly ‘known sources’. channel name is Blue Lions TV.
some of the info has been good to hear btw, can't say anything about authenticity .

4.) 10 Jun 2018 18:47:41
So some of the things you mentioned are what he's been saying.

5.) 10 Jun 2018 21:29:26
I don't get blue lions to so thanks obinna for taking the time to pass on what u have heard.

6.) 10 Jun 2018 23:53:14
I didn't watch anything from any bloke. It doesn't take rocket science to deduce what I posted from the players that we are linked to since the end of the season. For instance;
* Central defender: Lascelles, Lenglet, Koulibaly etc. We can't sign any of these if we don't let someone go which is most likely D. Luiz- that's linked to Napoli and Benfica.

* For attacking midfield- we obviously need to freshen up that area. We all know that Willian is strongly linked to ManU and might go if they put in a good offer; if that happens, we will need to replace with a capable hand. Chelsea is linked strongly to Leon Bailey, Lemar, someone talked about a player called Aleksey Miranchuk the other day (he's a good player), even Martial was rumoured. Do the math.

* it's obvious the club doesn't believe anymore in Drinkwater; and you see Chelsea being linked with Seri every day, Jorginho could be available, Zielinski is mentioned (has a release clause), I would have said Bryan Cristante but he's likely headed to Roma. If Drinkwater is going and Fabregas is not as good as he used to be- do the math.

The striker area is quite complicated.

If we keep hearing Hysaj and Florenzi, just maybe one of our RWB might just be going and I think it will be Zapacosta. Moses did better last season coupled with the fact that he counts as a home-grown player which is hard to come by.



09 Jun 2018 10:37:51
Anyone heard of Clement Lenglet? Central defender of Sevilla. Looks like we are interested.

obinna 123



02 Jun 2018 14:16:48
Dimarizio saying- Chelsea have held talks with Jokanovic for the job.

Looks like Zidane is heading to Qatar.

obinna 123

1.) 02 Jun 2018 15:51:05
Now going for championship leaves managers smh.

2.) 02 Jun 2018 21:49:10
Just holding talks doesn't mean we're after him. Just keeping our options open which is the right thing to do. I'd be very suprised if they end up appointing him though.

3.) 03 Jun 2018 10:14:06
He could be the next big thing you have to start somewhere
I would like someone like that.

4.) 03 Jun 2018 12:01:31
Big risk for big club surly. Hasn’t managed at highest level? Does seem good manager just a worry, as would be Blanc Sarri and Zidane tbf.

5.) 03 Jun 2018 17:36:07
Jokanovic has apparently led 2 Championship teams to promotion in 3 seasons there. I'd say that means he's no dud at all.

It'd be a slightly more risky move perhaps, but things have turned bad fast with coaches like Conte and Jose. So why not try something different then?

6.) 03 Jun 2018 18:27:00
Neil warnock has been promoted how many times? Shall we look to him too.

7.) 03 Jun 2018 18:36:10
Enrique is just as big a risk in my book I could manage Barcelona lol
And when he managed celta and Roma he had a win loss percentage the same
Won 15 lost 15 at both clubs
Hardly inspired but if he comes IL support him until we lose our first match then I want Enrique out,

8.) 03 Jun 2018 22:43:56
Finally we agree loko lol, personally I think Sarri is without doubt best choice. Albeit needs to keep quiet at times, blanc I don’t know anything about and can’t judge anyone at PSG, not sure what he was like with France, no to zidane too, Fulham boss risk. monaoco boss not sure his / we interested,

I feel Spain's coach should have gone to the world cup with Morata cos he suits their game better than D. Costa or I. Aspas. German coach - I think was a bit confused to leave out L. Sane.

obinna 123



05 Jun 2018 12:44:27
Despite the wide spread talk of Chelsea selling Courtois, there's still a reasonable chance that he will stay- as he plans talks after the World cup.

27 May 2018 12:11:24
Does anyone know that Messi is paid £750,000 and Neymar is paid £600,000 weekly. Ain't that crazy? Could it be the reason why Hazard is stalling on signing a new deal.

obinna 123

1.) 27 May 2018 12:56:24
Some people would say that's a reflection of how much better and how much more they’ve achieved than Hazard.

2.) 27 May 2018 14:09:44
I wouldn't say Neymar is so much better than Hazard. That's a ridiculous judgement. Hazard is on par with Neymar, maybe not Messi.

3.) 27 May 2018 14:25:22
CFCShak u read my mind.

4.) 27 May 2018 20:08:06
Hazard is world class quality. I think we need to realise we have a world beater in our team. Hazard unfortunately has been graced by defensive managers at Chelsea, RDM, Rafa, Jose and Conte. Hopefully we appoint Sarri and we see a Hazard that is a lot better than we have ever seen!



26 May 2018 22:57:34
WHAT A BRAND! Same team, same personnel - 3 consecutive UEFA Champions league title. Who said that wannabe winners shouldn't emulate their model? TALK TO THE HAND.
My second favourite team Real Madrid.

3.) 27 May 2018 07:58:27
Hahahaha. Why do you hate them? They didn't steal no one's dinner. I have always liked them. If Chelsea ain't in the UCL- Real Madrid becomes my team. Just like if Nigeria ain't in a competition, my love goes to Brazil and England.

Guys, I have to admit to a soft spot for my old team Dulwich Hamlet.
Hope they get there ownership and ground issues sorted out asap.

7.) 27 May 2018 10:29:43
off course u can have a soft spot for another team. I live in Gillingham so they are equal to Chelsea for my love. I also have a soft spot for West Ham because of the 1966 World Cup and Spurs because they were my dads team and I loved the greaves Gilzean era. Wouldn't call myself a supporter of either Spurs or West Ham but don't mind seeing them do well. But not against us off course, then my soft spot turns to hate.

9.) 27 May 2018 11:56:27
If it's only kids that have 2nd favourite teams then I completely agree that I am a kid. I like Real Madrid much more than any other English team asides Chelsea. I think they are brilliant club and a great team.

12.) 28 May 2018 08:03:48
Sorry guys Real Madrid is a brilliant club with a brilliant president and shouldn't apologise for them being rich and successful. Their brand is extraordinary. If you doubt it, try winning three consecutive UCL titles in this era. Great things come to those that appreciate great things.
*Fernando Redondo's pass to Raul (that sunk ManU) still plays in my head.
I would love Chelsea to win like that.

{Ed001's Note - brilliant club with a brilliant president? They got big and rich off the back of money stolen off the poor by a dictator who was on the side of the Nazis. They have prospered on the back of government protection and aid. They are the Spanish equivalent to the Eastern European sides that had secret police involvement to create their legacy. Not sure what is brilliant about that? Do you think West Ham getting a virtually free stadium is brilliant or do you think it is unfair that they get one when everyone else has to pay for their own? Because Real Madrid's old training ground was falling apart, with the club under immense debts, so it was bought off them by the local govt, at a massively over-inflated figure, which paid off their debts and gave them money to invest in players. Oh and they were also given a brand new, much bigger and better equipped training ground as part of the deal. All this in a country where large portions of the population have nothing and is in major financial difficulties, yet still they propped up an ailing team. I won't even get into Dr Fuentes, who was employed by the club (amongst many others to be fair) while also being the doctor to provide Lance Armstrong with 'help'. It's ok though because all the samples pertaining to Real Madrid were ordered to be destroyed by the Spanish courts....}

13.) 28 May 2018 11:40:59
With all due respect Ed; Is Real Madrid the only club with a 'history'? I would say NO. But even if they are the only club with a history, I would say they have utilized their 'talents' from that history and have done exponentially well with it - so for that reason, they are brilliant.
No club comes into a competition arena with his past or history written on its forehead; if not some teams will be made to play twelve against eleven man 'favoured' Real Madrid.
What's the guarantee that if some football clubs were in Real Madrid's shoes then - they won't do worse (from the Nazi thing) cos you can't predict the human behaviour at any point in time.
A man that's born rich/ helped owes no man no apologies.
I would rather be lucky, helped and make 90% good results than not helped, be hardworking and make 30% good results. I think Real Madrid is brilliant cos they have done very with the 'helped' riches that they have received.
If favour and help isn't sweet- try hard work.

{Ed001's Note - so you are purely a gloryhunter then. Nice to know, but I will stick to supporting a club because it is my club, not because of what they win. At least we all know where you stand. Your choice is different from mine, that's all. I would rather earn what I have than be handed it on a plate.

As for most of the rest, I don't know what you are trying to say with the twelve against eleven stuff, it makes no sense, but I am sure that is probably a language issue mate. No matter.}

14.) 28 May 2018 12:03:55
Glory hunter yea you could call me that, I have no issues with it.

15.) 28 May 2018 13:09:15
When your team looses a game, I bet you get angry. Where does the anger come from? If not that hunger for glory (we all wanna win and keep winning- it's human nature) . Show me a man that doesn't love glory and I show you a man that's a hypocrite.
Please I love to earn things but I wouldn't refuse help esp when I can't do something. Objective matters to me a lot if not why the struggle and work in the first place.
Chelsea isn't the only football team that I like but I like Chelsea the most. I live in Nigeria and we have football teams here too that someone can like but I know what it costs me to see all Chelsea games, buy their merchandise, travel to see some games.
I guess it wouldn't have been an issue if I liked a lower team rather than Real Madrid. Cos its R/ Madrid (a big successful team) that makes me a glory hunter. You guys are funny.

{Ed001's Note - no it is glory hunter because you choose a team that wins because they win, not because you identify with anything about them other than that. You don't care about anything other than they win things.

As for anger, no why would I? It's a game. I am not some teenage brat who has to rage quit games either, because they are games. There are more important things to worry about. Like morals, doing the right thing etc.}

16.) 28 May 2018 15:32:52
You are right, 'Anger' isn't the right word. One thing I know is that emotions and football are symbiotic brothers- can't keep one away from another. Football- is a. Powerful game- it messes up even the smartest, oldest and wisest of men.

17.) 28 May 2018 23:34:46
To CFCMatt, I've got a 2nd team: Northampton Town! No-one can claim I'm a glory hunter!



20 May 2018 17:14:41
Does Chelsea need to evolve to a more attacking kind of football? YES OR NO. Pick one.
My answer is YES.

obinna 123

1.) 20 May 2018 17:52:32
Obinna 123: Absolutely. Back to Mourinho's first year. Brick wall defence and the ability to counter attack with width, pace and a target man. Midfielders that can spring defence into attack and forwards that can finish the job.

2.) 20 May 2018 18:02:37
YES but Conte ain't changing and he ain't the man for it.

3.) 20 May 2018 18:41:42
Oh Lordy Lordy YES.

4.) 20 May 2018 19:12:17
Conte is absolutely the man for it he just needs backing. the man has done his job with his hands tied behind his back. it's easy to change the manager again, but if the philosophy is the same we will be having the same conversation next season. chelsea as a club are in it for a quick win. yep it has worked to some degree but since Jose first stint we have never had continued success really.

5.) 20 May 2018 19:37:20
Hahahaha. You see lots of us are saying 'YES' and 'BUT' Leave the 'BUT' and go with your heart and head. Please guys stop fighting this attacking football thing. Growth is beckoning on us. We have to evolve.

6.) 20 May 2018 20:34:05
Let me ask you guys a question.
Do you want to play so called entertaining football and win nothing?
For gods sake get a grip on reality!

7.) 20 May 2018 21:09:42

Pragmatic football (not defensive) is more attractive than possession obsessed football.

8.) 20 May 2018 22:46:31
I keep using the term ATTACKING football not ENTERTAINMENT football. Football in general is a game that's meant to entertain (whether its defensive or attacking) . If you wanna go on entertaining the crowd and not winning- it's your call but I am more comfortable- winning which means attack.

9.) 21 May 2018 11:03:32
What Obinna 123 means, the ability to effectively turn defence into an attack that bears fruit which means width and pace and finishers. This is not about entertaining, if it was we would not have enjoyed Saturday's result because without that penalty I could not see us scoring from open play.

10.) 21 May 2018 12:05:22
Thanks C1955, For me I wanna win by playing good attacking football (that brings out the best in footballers) and behind me should be a resolute defense. Entertainment, flair, less tension, less error, free/ easy-scoring are major bye products of attacking football.

11.) 21 May 2018 12:33:54
Statistical, attacking teams have won more games and titles and produced better players compared to defensive teams (in the UCL, EPL etc. The statistic is like 80-20. I wonder why anyone wants to play defensive football.

12.) 21 May 2018 15:38:17
Obinna 123:! told you should have been an accountant.

Don't be happy just yet cos ADL is stating otherwise. In his words, 'this club cannot be pillaged'; he went on to say that no one has called him yet about Sarri and he'll be reasonable with whoever calls him about Sarri- rather he's seeing a different story on the pages of newspapers.

Why would CFCShak be slayed if what he said doesn't happen? If all is well with our board, that should be their exact line of action; I like his comment, I hope its true.
The only person that has a right to slay him later should say what he or she thinks will happen later- otherwise, the person should shut up- whether what he said comes to pass or not.
