Hi Ed; How's your day? Any truth to Chelsea being interested in a Lyon player called Houssem Aouar?
If true, how do you rate the guy?
Have a good evening.

obinna 123

{Ed001's Note - not as far as I know, I know some English clubs looked at him but felt he was a bit slow and not up to the physicality of the Prem.}

1.) 22 Nov 2018 13:58:52
Surprised they thought he was slow, I watched most Lyon games last year and the kid has some immense potential. Definitely one to keep an eye on.

{Ed001's Note - depends on what they mean by slow, could be slow of thought or slow of understanding instructions.}

2.) 22 Nov 2018 14:22:41
Thankyou Ed, Kentonio- a lot of people are saying good things about him (Houssem Aouar) .

3.) 22 Nov 2018 15:42:38
A lot of people who watched the French league also said good things of Bakayoko. French league is a pub league. 1 team dominates, the others are crap. Probably on par with the Scottish leagues,

4.) 22 Nov 2018 16:00:47
Eden Hazard, Didier Drogba, Ngolo Kante, Thierry Henry etc. were all from the French league.

5.) 22 Nov 2018 16:14:48
Disagree with Adams comment. Load of tosh.

6.) 22 Nov 2018 19:49:01
Obina and you're point being? Bakayoko was made to look good in a poor league, got found out in 2 different leagues in 2 different countries.

7.) 22 Nov 2018 19:34:52
Our greatest striker ever came from the French league 🤦🏼‍♂️ There’s some fickle fans 😂.

8.) 22 Nov 2018 21:52:56
the French league was stronger back then until a little country decided to buy PSG and turn the league into a crap one. Its hardly made the league stronger has it? Fickle hardly mate, just don't get hyped up like you Fifa lot who think you know everything because you've signed him on a game. or watched him for one season. Bakayoko, Fabinho (liverpool) both look out their depths in this league.

9.) 22 Nov 2018 21:54:23
Totally agree Obinna some fans need to take a trip down memory lane before they comment. Let’s not forget Essien either.

10.) 22 Nov 2018 22:20:21
Kingkante, its truly quite a long list.

11.) 23 Nov 2018 01:37:16
I agree mate I find it quite disturbing the lack of knowledge some apparent Chelsea fans have on here already. Doesn’t matter what league you’re from there’s class and average players in each one.

12.) 23 Nov 2018 07:59:24
Adam is one of those fans. No point wasting your breath.

He says 1 team dominates, however only recently Monaco won the league.

Mbappe, Neymar, mendy, B. Silva, Fekir etc etc. The list is endless. Get your head out mate.

13.) 23 Nov 2018 09:50:36
Yes and they all dominate the champions league don’t they?

14.) 23 Nov 2018 09:54:53
Neymar hardly made himself in the French league you whopper. He learnt his trade in brazil, then Spain and now a piss easy league in France.

I think you’re all missing the point. Some players look good in a poor league and then get found out in stronger leagues. Not going to go through every player who has made the transition from one league to another. But there are players who look good and can make the step up, others can’t.

15.) 23 Nov 2018 10:13:13
Oh such a strong league. PSG already 13 points ahead. Played 13 won 13. Monaco 7 points. 19th place. Brilliant comparison. Even our below average players look good in the French league. Joey barton anyone. just because a player looks good playing in that league doesn’t mean he’s good enough for Chelsea.

{Ed001's Note - you could say the same about a player playing in any team outside the top 6 in England....}

16.) 23 Nov 2018 12:06:20
In What way have PSG dominated in the champions league? They’ve done nothing considering the money they’ve spent. Lyon have some fantastic young players there. Fekir, Aouar, N’Dombele and Ferland Mendy could all go on to become world class one day.



16 Nov 2018 16:50:55
Hi Eds; Is Chelsea interested in the Napoli RB- Elseid Hysaj? Seems like he could be on the move with all the talk coming from his agent OR I guess it's right to say that any interest in him will depend on possible departures. Maybe is he a player that Sarri would like in his present team?

obinna 123

{Ed001's Note - Sarri loves him but he has had serious injury problems I am not sure if the club would agree to move for him right now.}

1.) 16 Nov 2018 22:36:38
Thanks man.

2.) 16 Nov 2018 20:43:46
Ed001, any idea on which positions we will try to strengthen in January and in the summer?

{Ed001's Note - not really mate, the problem is that the people making the decisions there I do not know. I know Sarri wants someone for the right side to replace Willian but I don't know if they will decide to agree with him.}

3.) 17 Nov 2018 10:15:06
Thanks anyways, Ed.

{Ed001's Note - welcome. Sorry I can't help more.}



09 Nov 2018 14:33:45
Hi guys, how reliable is the source El Gol Digital? They are stating that Sarri has spoken with Fekir over the phone about a move to Chelsea in January (winter) . Ordinarily, that would be tapping up but the move does make sense since Chelsea reportedly missed out on the player in the summer ; Fekir is reportedly entering the final year of his contract come summer next year and Chelsea being linked to lots of attacking midfielders. Good player.

obinna 123

1.) 09 Nov 2018 16:47:44
rubbish source.



06 Nov 2018 14:23:29
Hi Ed001; would it be right to say that Chelsea is definitely in for a winger in January transfer window with all the talks going around names like Suso, Malcom, Lorzano, Nicholas Pepe, Fekir, Leo Bailey (talking) etc.? Can you please shed some light.

obinna 123

{Ed001's Note - more of a right sided forward, but yes, there does seem to be a definite plan to get one.}

1.) 06 Nov 2018 14:56:29
Thanks Ed, you are a lifesaver. This guy Nicholas Pepe- how do you rate compared to others that I mentioned in my question?

{Ed001's Note - I have only seen clips of him mate, so not enough to judge him at all.}

2.) 06 Nov 2018 16:56:16
Who do you think would be best for the role Ed? I’d personally like to see Hudson-Odoi a go but no change that’ll happen. We need a direct winger like Robben. I’d try for Dembele as part of the Willian deal. Suso isn’t quick enough for me although I rate him highly.

{Ed001's Note - Lozano looks best suited to the Prem to be honest. Dembele seems to just constantly give the ball away, which is what has annoyed Barca and made them look to move him on already. Leon Bailey would probably be the best though, if he is attainable.}

3.) 06 Nov 2018 17:38:56
If Dembele gives the ball away too easily, it means that Sarri won't like him either.

{Ed001's Note - good point.}

4.) 06 Nov 2018 18:51:58
I loved Bailey last season but he’s been shocking this year. If he can’t start for Leverkusen he won’t do much for us. I like Lozano though he’s got goals and assists in him.



31 Oct 2018 12:25:23
Any truth to the news that Chelsea is interested in signing West Ham contract rebel- Declan Rice?

obinna 123

1.) 31 Oct 2018 18:02:52
He was a Chelsea youth player obinna.

2.) 31 Oct 2018 22:53:20
Hearing it for the first time. I don't know him before now.

Sarri citing Alonso's aerial ability in defending set pieces as his reason for picking him (Alonso) over Emerson; my question is- which do you think is more valuable and beneficial to the team- Alonso's superior aerial ability at set-pieces or Emerson's superior mobility in open play (considering both players' strengths and weaknesses)?

obinna 123

1.) 08 Dec 2018 14:18:57
Can't remember Alonso ever winning a heading dual - Sarri picking at straws (rather than his nose as usual) .

2.) 08 Dec 2018 18:12:39
Why would you need a left back to be able to win aerial duels much anyway.



04 Dec 2018 14:53:04
Just read an ESPN report of Sarri thinking that Chelsea's over 30 policy (giving them one year deal) is making things difficult. I think that policy is good. I don't know if its the Italian in him talking- Sarri seems to like older players a lot. Besides the pace of the EPL being too quick for older players, i feel the club has to build with good young players for the future (Mancity doing a great job at that) . I truly can't understand Sarri pushing for another year for D. Luiz.

obinna 123

1.) 04 Dec 2018 15:55:04
I wouldn’t read too much into what he said. what do you expect a manager to say when asked about contractual issues of his players? Even if he doesn’t want them around he won’t come out saying all that instead he would say what he said earlier today. relax! Chelsea will surely replace both Luiz and fabregas come summer transfer window with or without them in the club.

2.) 05 Dec 2018 12:04:58
Why not just let D. Luiz and Fabregas leave and replace them with Matthijs De ligt and Frankie De Jong; heard the both of them would like to head to the same club. Any thoughts Ed001?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know, I have only seen them a few times, but they have not impressed me all that much in Europe.}



21 Oct 2018 23:35:38
How trustworthy is the site called Calciomercato- as they are saying that Chelsea will prioritize a deal to sign Leon Bailey in January?

obinna 123

1.) 22 Oct 2018 00:51:59
Last January I would have loved to have signed him but he hasn’t been great since. I’d actually give CHO a chance instead and readdress the position in the summer if there’s still problems.

2.) 22 Oct 2018 06:35:21
I agree with frank, what little I’ve seen and checked up on him this year he hasn’t been the same, insigne depay Pulisic would be ideal winger/ forward in my opinion, with CHO going to France or Germany on loan like Sancho etc and shine there.

3.) 22 Oct 2018 17:51:37
Very untrustworthy.

4.) 23 Oct 2018 00:51:31
I want to be positive that Hudson Odoi's issue will turn out well for Chelsea soon.

5.) 23 Oct 2018 06:29:21
The just regurgitate things from other untrustworthy internet sites.

Hudson Odoi is one of the best young talents the club has, and I really want to see him break into the first team. But he is still only a 17 year old lad, he's at a top club with a new manager who won't be taking any risks at this stage of the season.

6.) 24 Oct 2018 18:59:43
The guy called Lorzano of PSV isn't bad.



15 Oct 2018 17:44:27
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)?

With all the talk of Fabregas leaving, someone should replace him I guess?

Hi Ed001; how about the the Cagliari midfielder called Niccolo Barella? Any truth to Chelsea being in negotiation for him?

{Ed001's Note - there has certainly been some interest but he is looking for first team football guaranteed.}

Richarlison might be very difficult to pull off cos he just moved to Everton. Besides that he's my number one pick. The guy should practically fit into our attack perfectly.

Matt, you are right about your analysis earlier before the game when you said that Mancity's strength is in their wings. Good game from Chelsea. There's an obvious change in the dynamics and defending in the way Chelsea played.

Truly there was a change in the tactics. The team played like a 4-5-1 formation each time Mancity was on the ball and the wing defenders did well today. Good game.

I wonder too if Chelsea have forgotten or don't know what counter attacking football is anymore? When they win the ball from the opponents, no one seems to want to break quickly anyone.

My man CFCShak, normally if I hate something, I neglect it. I feel now is the best time to slate him so that he wakes up. He's continuously refusing to deal with the facts even when he's got options available to him. I want him to stay cos I like his brand of football but it's looking like he doesn't want to evolve. The best coaches in football had to evolve at some point when there are challenges but it doesn't seem like he wants to evolve or knows another way.
For instance like you said, if Alonso, Willian, Azpilicueta and Morata doesn't suit his style why doesn't Sarri put more faith in Emerson, Hudson Odoi or Pedro, Zappacosta and Giroud- until the transfer window resumes or until they decide to wake up.

When the balance of football isn't right, no one plays well or at least consistently well. Sarri has got his job cut out for him.
