Sport bild got a story about haaland saying chelsea don't stand a chance because haaland doesn't see us as one of the top clubs anymore,

I’m sure that is just paper talk Matt. I’m also sure he is a player we will be looking at closely.

I have said this several times before, it isn’t a given Haaland will sign for us, Tammy doesn’t have to sign any contract offered to him and Giroud doesn’t have to extend his contract.

I assume the club will be looking at all sorts of contingency’s but I’m sure it will be very interesting to see who our forwards are for next season.

Yea Matt, I read something like that but I don’t think it’s true that Haaland has said anything like that. If Haaland actually did say something like that, then why didn’t he say it in openly? I think If he didn’t say it in the open, it could mean he’s never said something like that at all or he’s scared or cautious or concerned about saying such a thing in the open, and the question would be- why would he be scared or cautious or concerned about saying something like that in the open? The answer is simple- he can’t buy himself (or he can’t pay for his transfer fee to where he wants) . I think the believable thing is what his agent Mino Raiola has said, ‘only ten clubs have the financial strength to sign Haaland’, which means he’s open to the top clubs.

Sometimes, these Sports dailies are funny: by saying ‘Chelsea don’t stand a chance’, I am sure they gave the other clubs that they think stands a chance the money to sign the player (Haaland) whenever he (Haaland) becomes available.

That's rubbish. We are still a big club with lots ambition. remember the lure of london. my concern is the the competitive packages of other rival clubs. I believe Halaand must be aware of the d vacuum and we are always trying to strengthen the squad to be able to compete as as always. i guess the bold want to influence his decision to remain in Germany with Bayern also interested as lewa is not getting younger .

Makes top 4 more important, hopefully Leicester drop off with there injuries, West Ham and we can do some damage to Liverpool’s fight tomorrow night too.

Sorry for the repeat post.

If we don't make top 4 then we can forget Haaland.

It wouldn't surprise me if Haaland stayed at Dortmund (again dependent on them getting top 4) which would greatly expand his choices the following summer - he is only 20.

{Ed001's Note - they need money desperately.}

My opinion should never be aired more than once Ed. It’s not fair on other posters!

Boring old fart springs to mind.

I predicted 7pts from the Utd, Liverpool and Everton games.

Some posters thought we would win all three some thought one win and two draws would be ok.

Three of those points I believed would come from the Utd game. So, I'm now relying on us beating the two clubs from Scouse land.

We need to start creating more and taking more of our chances that's for sure but I'm struggling with my usual optimism.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 19:13:14
I thought 5 points would be a good result and still think the same.
In essence no defeats is the priority at this stage of the season and given we have a new coach.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 19:46:24
Take four points from Liverpool and Everton games, and I'll be very confident of a top four finish.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 20:06:27
I’m usually the super confident poster but that has gradually been drained out of me.

I can see us giving a good side a proper thumping, let’s hope it happens soon, it might boost our confidence in front of goal.

Agree0 0Disagree

Tom, Tom, TomB - your role is to keep us all positive and moving forward into golden uplands! Now we're all negative and depressed!

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 10:24:01
MDW, I’m truly sorry for falling so appallingly in my role as Mr Positive.

I’m sure “Tommy Tickle” and the team will shift this dark clouds away sooner rather than later.

Results at any stage of the season are the important thing and certainly our results have improved marginally but the football is not easy on the eye.

I have this horrible feeling I’m going to be defending TT at the end of the season if we don’t get into the top four or if the style of football doesn’t improve. I’m remembering how fans have called for management changes before for similar reasons.

tbh it is probably the best time to play liverpool, they've lost 4 of the last 5 and like us seem to be having trouble scoringa nd we're looking a lot more solid. dare i say im hopeful of a win at anfield.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 13:09:30
I'm upbeat about liverpool. they are also not at their best and a good time to play them. we also have to take risk and not play like with United where we were too cautious. We need to attack teams and not ju recycle passess around the middle and defence.

02 Mar 2021 17:55:01
Ed, has anything changed with Donnarumma since your pre January summary?

Recent reports are that his contract talks have stalled, but I'm guessing that's pending UCL qualification being confirmed?

{Ed002's Note - No nothing has changed. His agent and Milan are still talking about him and two other players. It is a matter of reaching agreement over two points that they don't have right now.}

Agree0 0Disagree

I'm guessing you saw the article about Maguire on the Chelsea website and that influenced you, and your decision to omit him from the list?

{Ed001's Note - no, I have never rated Maguire. I pointed out all his shortcomings when he was at Hull and nothing has changed with his game, other than he now gets paid many times more than he did then. He would struggle to get into a top 10 of defenders that have the name Harry Maguire.}

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 17:51:30
He's a very well paid, terrible defender. I find it so frustrating that, no matter who our coaching staff are, we're intent on playing into what limited strengths he has - every time we play United!

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 15:30:34
Is Tammy unhappy and has been linked to other clubs? Rumours circulating that West Ham are looking at him.

{Ed002's Note - He is refusing to sign a new contract.}

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 16:22:18
Does that mean he is likely to be sold in the summer Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Will be asked to sign a contract extension but is being a bit of a prima donna and a bitch which the club won't tolerate so if he threatens to leave then the club will say yes.}

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 17:52:55
All the best Tammy. 👋.

Agree1 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 16:35:35
Is that why he was left out of the squad for the Utd game Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - No, that isn't the concern of the coach.}

Oh Kevin you aren't good enough and never will be to throw tantrums and be a bitch at a top club
Sell him as I've said before giroud is the ultimate professional and Kevin has achieved nothing and gets on like he is a legend
Clown.

Agree1 1Disagree

02 Mar 2021 20:55:22
All about opinions.

Let’s see if he signs the contract that will be offered to him and let’s see if Giroud wants more than a one year extension.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 21:39:39
True thrush let's see what top club come in for Kevin, bayern Barcelona real psg maybe City or Liverpool
Or West ham villa or palace not my opinion but I'd say reality of his skill set.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 22:07:52
TBH there is no way back for Abraham if he is sulking and being a prima donna. If he thinks he is good enough he should sign the extension and fight for his place and perhaps reflect on how he could improve his game just like CHO he thinks he has made it and is the complete article- far from it.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Mar 2021 23:08:24
My view on Abraham is that he's got a pretty good scoring record, all be it mostly against opposition in the bottom half of the table.

He's hold up play isn't great, he's not quite worked out when to hold onto the ball and when to lay it off. My biggest frustration around him is that he rarely seems to anticipate a ball into the box, he's never on his toes expecting the delivery. This often results in low crosses flashing past him and good opportunities going by with no threat on the goal.

Look, he's an excellent second choice for us - he's just never going to be the main guy I think he wants to be / thinks he is. If he can't accept that, and threatens to leave, then he should be shown the door.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 08:21:57
Tammy needs to improve no doubt but what posters aren't mentioning is his physical progress over the last 2-3 seasons - non existent. Every time I watch snippets of warm ups and training sessions the club share on social media and their media channel, he's always looking half arsed. Whilst Reece, Mason and Callum have taken an interest in gym work and supplementary training outside of what's prescribed for them, Tammy seems to be more interested on being in insta and playing FIFA. My opinion as a striker and taking into account the role he's been asked to play during games, he needs to put the head down and work on getting bigger and stronger. He has enough speed and technical ability to put away chances but not the physicality to power through gaps, hold off players, hold the ball and he's always off balance at the slightest touch. Personally I think this is all that's stopping him.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 00:21:15
Ed002 other than haaland, any other strikers we are looking at with possibly tammy and giroud leaving we will likely need one.

{Ed002's Note - Options are being kept open and they have looked at other strikers but it has gone no further than that at present as far as I know.}

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 10:32:47
I don’t want to misquote any of the Eds but I think they said the club want him to stay.

He wants assurances and he is not going to get them.

So it’s simple, he either excepts our contractual offer or he doesn’t. If he doesn’t he leaves.

I think he has a lot of good points to his game but IMO great strikers anticipate chances, they have an instinct. That for me, at the moment is missing from his game can he improve in that sphere? I hope so but it’s not a certainty.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 10:45:52
prima donna and a bitch love it.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Mar 2021 13:10:39
Possible for names if possible ed002? Alexander isak or andre silva being looked at? Thanks alot.
