Anyone know why Emerson Palmieri hasn't travelled with the squad to Greece? I read that he isn't in Chelsea's provisional squad that travelled for PAOK Salonica.

He’s ill.

2.) 20 Sep 2018 04:09:09
He's injured or ill, Sarri mentioned it couple of days ago. He would've definitely featured if he was fit.

Chelsea are working on a deal to sign Nabil Fekir. Lyon have raised the price to try and keep Fekir but Chelsea are trying to meet the demands- Alfredo Pedulla (from Simon Phillips)

Would be surprised if it happened. Can't see us getting Martial or Fekir this window now. Nobody reliable has really confirmed concrete interest in Fekir, just been rumours and you know Liverpool will likely come back in for him if we tried getting a deal done. Although if these rumours going around about Batshuayi going on loan are true, we desperately need one of the two, we simply won't have enough goals in the team if he leaves.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 00:58:21
maybe batshuayi on loan to lyon as part of the deal?

3.) 09 Aug 2018 02:16:36
Don't think they want Bats as they like Mariano Diaz playing upfront for them. Apparently they're interested in Zouma though as i'm sure they've been looking for a CB. Wouldn't mind using him in a deal if it helps getting Fekir, would prefer it to be a loan but it doesn't seem as if he's in Sarri's plans unfortunately. Just want this deal to happen soo badly, i remember last season when beIN sports reported we had a bid accepted for Mahrez on deadline day and everyone went nuts. I expect a lot of guessing and false reports tomorow, same could easily happen with Fekir.

* December 17 ✔️ Courtois close to an agreement over a new 5y deal with Chelsea, ✔️ Kepa close to Real Madrid ;
* January 18 ✔️ Kepa’s Real deal collapses after a 'no' from Zidane ✔️ Courtois ends contract talks ;
* August 18 ✔️ Courtois close to Real ✔️ goes AWOL that prompts Kepa to Chelsea? - from journalist- KRISTOF TERREUR.
Looking at this chart's series of events, do you completely believe that Courtois' decision to join Real Madrid has completely been about his family? Please look through the chart very before you answer.

obinna 123

1.) 07 Aug 2018 22:31:21
I think your looking in to it a bit to much. of course he would want to go to Madrid regardless. His family being in Madrid would be a massive reason why he would want to go there. Why would he not want to play for the European champions and see his kids on a regular basis?

2.) 08 Aug 2018 08:06:49
Offcourse you are right he's gone- he's gone. What intrigued me about this tweet from Kristof Terreur is '* January 18', if Kepa had gone to Real Madrid, wouldn't Courtois be a Chelsea player today?

3.) 08 Aug 2018 08:33:55
Obinna123 - if Kepa had gone to Madrid then we would be looking at an alternative, we had a short list of about 4/ 5 potential replacements. A couple of days ago we were all discussing replacements and I didn't see a mention of Kepa then.

Courtois was never going to stay at Chelsea.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 08:35:38
Both keen on a move to Real Madrid, but their club wanted to keep both of them.

One accepts the decision and proceeds to be happy captaining his club.

Whilst the other sulks and goes AWOL to force a move.

Human levels of decency.

Hazard 💙👏🏼.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 11:05:42
fine him. it's disrespectful. chelsea pay his wages.
if I did that at work I'd get the sack! shouldn't be allowed in football. players have far to much power.

6.) 08 Aug 2018 16:51:56
I agree his attitude has been poor at times . However his children live over there, imagine seeing them during the summer break then having to say goodbye again, knowing that there is an opportunity to live close by. However bad it seems to us you have to do what U know is best for your children.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 17:18:23
Surely with the wages he is getting he could easily move this family o.



07 Aug 2018 11:39:16
Now MARCA is saying that kovacic will join Chelsea on loan in the next few hours. Alfredo Pedulla said earlier that Chelsea's the only remaining club interested in Kovacic.

Chelsea have lodged a late bid to sign Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Bernard, but the Brazilian is on his way to Everton and is expected on Merseyside for a medical in the next 48-hours (Sky Sports) - Simon Phillips.

obinna 123

1.) 07 Aug 2018 10:26:38
Bernard really isn't what we need, we really have signed some bang average players over the past few years. So I certainly hope Bernard does join Everton.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 10:44:39
Typical Sky Sports mate. All bullrubbish.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 11:11:49
He's free and can surprise everyone - atleast that should count for something (HALF BREAD IS BETTER THAN NOTHING) It's better we get a player like this than end up with nothing (if he isn't good enough, the club can sell him) . This is the kind of player that the club can take a gamble on. He can also be the perfect squad player.
No Ramsey, No Bailey, No Zaha, no Fekir, no pulisic, no Vecino, no SMS etc; no nothing- even the one that's free? Before now we all knew that the attacking midfield/ winger position needed some fortification but nothing has been done about it. This year it's Courtois' problem that we are facing, what if we don't qualify for the UCL next season and certain key players decides to leave- then we the fans starts hating them again. I feel every fan should encourage the club spend now so that we don't face dire situations later. Honestly if we think that we are good for this season- then we have to think again.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 11:43:49
obinna 123, we all know we need additions to our squad. But Bernard really isn't what is needed, it was the same with Drinkwater and Zapacosta last summer. They were squad players and added literally nothing to our team!

The million or so wages Bernard would earn over a year or two's contract should just be put to better use. We already have enough bang average players on our wage bill that should be sold and put to better use imo.

But knowing us we will end up with Bernard, as those are the only type of players the club seem interested in signing of late.

We all want what's best for our club, let's just hope we are a little happier come Thursday.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 11:49:15
I’d rather play Hudson-Odoi every game then have a half talented Bernard on the wings. I think the agent used Chelsea to get a higher contract elsewhere.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 18:27:12
Cos its looking like the club isn't doing anything. Guy we are Chelsea and Chelsea is no small so we should stop acting like one.

Certain reports of Sarri interested in a certain young Andrea Pirlo name Sandro Tonali. Anyone seen how good he is?

obinna 123



15 Oct 2018 10:17:26
With all the talk coming from Elseid Hysaj's agent about his failed move to Chelsea and rumour of Napoli adding Zappacosta to their list of potential targets; can one begin to wonder if Chelsea and Napoli would be interested in a deal that sees each player move over to the either clubs (swap maybe)?

Hazard says, 'If I'm asked one coach I would like to work with again, I would say Mourinho'.
What is it about Jose Mourinho that his players (both the ones that like him and those that dislike him) see. Most of his players see him as he is and others tend to see how good he's when he's gone.

obinna 123

1.) 13 Oct 2018 17:55:25
Hazard has to have had his tongue firmly in his cheek if he said this!

2.) 14 Oct 2018 11:42:24
Pretty sure hazard was just being nice, trying to take some of the blame and justify our bad season finishing 10th. I personally think hazard will stay. I love the comment he made when asked if he thought he was the best player in the world he simply replied. yes!

3.) 14 Oct 2018 15:06:44
“In 12 years I've only had 1 bad season, the last 6 months under Mourinho and it was partly my own fault. After the title, we asked Mourinho for extra holidays. I came back totally out of shape. ”
This is really interesting, this whole international break has been Hazard's.



11 Oct 2018 13:43:17
It really looks like Chelsea are interested in the English guy- Sancho. I heard he also got a call up to the England squad, how good is he (to anyone that has seen him)?

{Ed002's Note - That was in 2017.}

1.) 11 Oct 2018 14:26:32
It’s an international break and the newspapers have nothing better to report.
At the beat of times they are crap through an international break they are even worse!



09 Oct 2018 16:41:19
Anyone heard of Real Madrid's Carvaghal stating his love for the Premier league? Surely Chelsea has to be interested in him I guess. I think he can be an upgrade on all right fullbacks that we've got.

obinna 123

1.) 09 Oct 2018 23:00:56
Better than who?

2.) 10 Oct 2018 01:22:30
I love Azpi but he’s an average RB.

3.) 10 Oct 2018 10:59:14
I do like Azpi aswell but he’s always going to be that B player. He gives his all but the last couple of seasons I have not been the most convinced him.

4.) 10 Oct 2018 18:10:23
Azpi will come good. Maybe he hasn't fully adjusted to the Sarri style. He still is one of the best in league, of not the best. No doubt.

5.) 10 Oct 2018 19:24:44
Azpi is a very good RB on his day but if you watched him last season he was dragged out of or played out of position so often by defensive frailties. At the season start with our back four not playing well as a unit he again ended up being dragged out of position. If we keep progressing with Sarri's set up he will come good again.

6.) 10 Oct 2018 21:24:25
Is this the same Azpi (Dave) that displaced the best left back in the world and before Conte’s arrival was considered by some as the best defender in the league?
He hasn’t hit top form so far this season in a back four but can I suggest some patients,
Form can be temporary class isn’t.

7.) 10 Oct 2018 22:13:50
Tomb, the Azpi criticism is a joke mate. It's the same group that ridiculed and wanted hazard gone last year.

8.) 10 Oct 2018 23:35:18
CfcSHAK I never wanted hazard out, I was his biggest supporter last year if you can remember.

Yeah I’m im criticising him but it’s not on form, I’ve just never rated him as highly as others. Still love the guy though.

I presume that Hazard knows that and he wants the club to do something about it.

The question is what should Hudson Odoi do in a couple of months so that he can start playing a bit more with the team and continue his development?

Though he has to improve, good central defenders are hard to come by these days. Looks like Sarri rates him, so I think Sarri should sit with him and talk. He's a good player.

Finally my mind is down after this whole Hazard nightmare. He talks about staying- “I can finish my career with Chelsea. I am very happy with this club, with the team, my family is happy here. So If I don't go to Spain, it is not a problem. I love the fans, I think the fans love me! What happens in the future, I will be happy, so that's it. "

Yea man, if we can get Kovacic over the line next season then that I think will be start of something great at Chelsea (a midfield combo of Jorginho, Kovacic and Kante), I pray he forces his move cos with his improvement I feel Real Madrid might look to dig their heels in. It would also be good if there's an option to buy in his deal.

I really respect Bakayoko's exploits at Monaco and Makalele's impact in his Monaco's career; maybe now would also be a good time to give Makalele a call again. I feel Bakayoko can still improve and become the player that everyone expects him to be.

5 years? That could be a far time, I think he can be up there in three years (never mind me, I am just impressed with the guy) . Good deal- Kepa!
