What a surprising week Sane has joined Bayern, Napoli are closing in on Osimhen and Bellingham is joining Dortmund. If only there was someone who could have predicted this for us all months ago. Fantastic stuff Ed really should start putting money on some of these ha, I know we do your head in sometimes on the Chelsea page but mostly it’s just because your info is so idiosyncratic that we become greedy little b#*%#rds for more and more of it. Much appreciation.

What do you mean, Ed - you don’t think Olive is a reliable source?

03 Jul 2020 16:33:21
EmilSC - What are you trying to wind Ed002 up for? We’d rather keep Ed002 as a source than have to rely on Olive 🙄🥺.

Hey Ed I’m not sure if you have expressly answered this before I can’t find a specific answer to it. If we do manage to turn our interest in Havertz into a transfer and sign him would we still look to a deal for Sancho if his overall package cost came down again?
I would assume the answer to be yes, but given Chelsea having LB as a priority and uncertainty with Willian. I Thought best to ask you, so if we manage to secure Havertz and a LB and Willian does not sign, would you expect Chelsea to look to a deal for Sancho this summer if his overall package was no longer seen as too expensive?
I hope I haven’t bored you or tied myself up with hypotheticals Ed I saw you mention on the United page that Chelsea and Madrid were offered a reduced package recently, I just feel that if the agents are fearing this new law coming in, cutting into their money, they would be doing all they can to secure a transfer this summer including not taking the Michael with their own fees to our off potential buyers.

{Ed002's Note - The transfers are all unrelated. I cannot answer convoluted whatif questions.}

Ed002, are Valencia interested in Kepa?

{Ed002's Note - It is unimportant what is happening in that respect. He is part of the defence so there is no point explaining about any discussions.}

Don't like to believe reports but it's that Zouma is being offered around for sale, he's our best defender I hope it's not true 😕😕.

Zouma has a couple of English club after him.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 16:03:48
I reckon that will be Spurs and Everton, if resorts are to believed we have Digne as back up to Chilwell and Digne is a far better player and Chilwell should be his alternative. If any Centre backs should leave it should be Rudiger and Christensen.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 16:44:55
I don't believe the Digne rumours click bait. Maybe in exchange for Zouma at best. No way are Chelsea paying the reported fees.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 22:29:45
Problem is no one wants to buy the other two.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Jul 2020 00:18:25
I still feel that Tomori is our best defender. Always liked AC too. Rudiger has been solid, but Rudiger needs competition and maybe David Alaba is the answer? Alaba can also play at LB. He is still a fast full back and he has tonnes of experience and we need that. Although Alaba prefers La Liga according to the newspapers. Kalidou Koulibaly always looked decent, leadership and steel, but the price is too high. Kalidou Koulibaly's consistency has also been a big question this season. We have the youngsters what we need is VDV or Kompany level at CB.

Rudiger solid? What games you been watching pal he’s awful.

Transfer plans made simple for the summer?

Sign Onana and sell Kepa

Sign a commanding centre back, (Giminez or skriniar) sell zouma

Sign Havertz, sell Jorginho and Barkley

Willian 2 year contract.

If only it were that simple Standard. Rather sell Rudi than Zouma at this point to be honest.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 11:51:59
Jorginho not playing is interesting. I wonder what's happened?

Personally he should play in the no.6 role now. I'm starting to think Kante is better in the free no.8 role which is saying a lot about the other midfielders.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 11:54:46
Gimenez I agree with he’s a beast, I want Tagliafico as well though.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 13:40:14
Onana GK
Upamecano CB
Tagliafico or Telles LB.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 14:14:03
People say sign this player and sell that player like this is a video game.

I don't know if fans realise this, but these are actual human beings involved, not some bloody objects.

Jorginho not playing will start lots of conspiracy theories.

I take your point Roman.

Won't be able to sell Kepa unless we're Willing to take a massive loss on him and the board wouldn't do that. If he goes i see it being a loan for a season or two with an option to buy so we can get as much money back as possible. Oblak is the dream but Onana would be a very good 2nd choice. Gimenez would be great and is definitely the type of CB we need. It's a shame Zouma may be the one to be sold to make way for a CB since he's easily the best defensive CB we have.

Tagliafico is my 1st choice LB but since Zouma may be moved and i assume Everton may come in for him if he's available, maybe a swap deal involving Zouma and Digne? . Spurs seem to be the other team that may approach him in the summer so maybe another swap deal with Alderweireld? He'll definitely bring what we lack at the back. Already been said that teams will be looking to do more swap deals in the summer so it can definitely be a possibility.

Mine is unrealistic to say the least.

But going pure football manager style I’d offer Kepa, Rudiger and Jorginho to Athletico Madrid and wipe some of their Morata money and in exchange ask for Oblak and Gimenez. I’d then buy Jamal Lewis at Norwich as I think he’s got bags of potential and in a good team he could take the next step up. Also take Havertz. Would love to see us go after Lautaro Martinez at Inter maybe one for next year though.

Outs:
Kepa, Zappacosta, Drinkwater, Bakayoko, baba Rahman, Jorghino, Kennedy, Barkley, Batshuayi and Abraham.

Emerson or Alonso too.

Roman, it says made simple lol. Obviously not many of these will happen.

Watford an absolute must win if we want still to hope for top 4. Find myself thinking about the frailties of our defense as many of us did earlier in the season. New LB and 'leader' CM wanted for sure on last night's showing. We need play with passion and compete for every ball from kickoff this Saturday.

Would pick Mount for energy he brings in this respect, along with Kante and Kovacic in midfield. Willian Giroud and Pulisic up front. Back 4 a depressing topic, with lack of quality at disposal we seem to need back 5 to be more secure!, but think Dave and Christensen have to be two of them, and expect Toni R will still be other CH with orders to redeem himself.

LB a tough choice. If James had shown some form might have had him on the right and Dave as LB. Otherwise might start with Emerson this time as Alonso looked knackered last night and having played v Leicester.

Can we get something clear. So much talk about getting a new keeper but who's going to buy the worlds most expensive keeper from us,

Believable1 0Unbelievable

02 Jul 2020 05:10:29
That’s The issue; we took such a huge risk with Kepa and it didn’t pay off. I honestly don’t even see us get half of what we paid!

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 05:34:23
The loan deal to Valencia seems a bit more realistic than a sale.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 05:57:14
It’s not just a goal keeper problem Matt.

Individual errors, a mental fragility, lack of leadership and poor organisation are bigger worries.

Only an obligation to but and a years loan will get rid of that clown.

Kepa's amortisized value this summer is £53m - we need to sell for £53m to break even - this isn't going to happen. A loan move is the only possibility unless Chels are willing to make a loss (which is extremely doubtful) but then the problem of Kepa's high wage comes into play. The reported 2-year loan to Valencia would be ideal but who pays Kepa's wage?

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 11:44:09
We will just have to except Kepa ain’t going anywhere.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 11:52:58
exactly. No one will touch Kepa's wage unless we pay some of it.

I know what the word ‘EXCLUSIVE’ mean but Ed001; does a story or article being ‘EXCLUSIVE’ mean that it true or authentic even if the story or article is coming from a source that can be unreliable?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

01 Jul 2020 17:54:25
No. It just means that it is their own story.

Last rant. have we even spent 5 minutes as a team working on defending corners and set pieces? We are as bad now as game 1! Pathetic. Azpi on 6ft3 player while Tammy takes post?

Agree2 0Disagree

02 Jul 2020 14:05:32
I would like to think so Feeling Blue.

I’ve been saying for some time questions have to be asked of our defensive coaching. Although I’m not sure anyone can cure Christensens lack of concentration or Rudiger’s walkabouts.
