Have to say I worry increasingly Tuchel will walk towards start of the season. He made it clear he wanted efficient business and a squad finalised before the start of pre-season. Now one key target has gone elsewhere; another seems likely too. We expect to lose 3, maybe 4 central defenders, a left-back, a midfielder, two attackers and a striker. This is already on top of needing midfield and wingback cover.
Have to say it, I would not blame Tuchel for walking out.

FGS. The window has only just opened. Of course it would be nice if all our business was done by tomorrow but we have to be realistic.

We will sign several new players in this window and then the moans will be they are the wrong players or not good enough for Chelsea.

The idea of TT walking out after a few days of the window opening is in my opinion just crazy.

Yes Tom it looks like Kounde heading to Barca. How? Search me.

Tom, we have been close to Koundé for a year and penny-pinching has prevented a deal. Tuchel has walked out on clubs before. He made it clear - deals done early. So far, no evidence of it.
I'll call it now, we won't sign any 1st team player before August.

My guess is you have no idea if the club has been, using your phrase, “penny pinching”.

There are lots of moving parts in any transfer including the players wishes.

We are not privy to the negotiations and as much as I would like him to come and play for the World Club Champions, we can’t make him.

If TT wants to leave and I very much doubt then so be it. Life goes on.

We could sign five players in the next ten days and that won’t make some fans happy.

Just enjoy the good weather and Ascot.

Tom, we should have been at our most attractive last summer and we squandered it. It was a chance to get Haaland, Koundé and Tchouameni - spine done for years.
Haaland, I can accept the cost issue.
Koundé and Tchouameni, there are no excuses.
At the same time, we sold 4 excellent young players. 2 CBs, a RWB and a Striker. All of which now would walk into our side.
We know Koundé wanted to join - we sat and quibbled over several million and now Barcelona have sold him their project.
Like I said, would not be surprised if we kick off at Everton with 0 new signings and Tuchel gone by September. I hope I am wrong but this club never learns.
Incidentally, the last window we went in quick and got deals done was Summer 2014. We walked the league.

How about this as an excuse. There parent clubs didn’t want to sell. It happens.

I want all our signings at the training ground day one of pre-season. It makes little difference if they are signed before that date.

Who said we quibbled over a few million? Did Chelsea or Sevilla come out and say it? The players agent? No. It’s newspapers ? the same newspapers who link clubs to every Tom dick and Harry to get clicks and make money.

It’s been pretty much exactly 2 weeks since the takeover was fully completed. You’ve said you want to hold Boehly and the consortium to their word about data led signings etc, surely they need time to run through our previous targets to see whether they fit into this new policy, or did you just expect them to come in, slam a suit case of £200m on the table and tell Marina to go out and buy whoever Tuchel wants ?.

Sevilla said it last summer. Monchi specifically, if you really want to know.
For sure I want data to drive recruitment in the longer term as every bit of data told you Lukaku was a recipe for disaster in our system. But this window, we do not have time for that. Players return for pre-season two weeks Monday. This needed to be a window where they came in, backed Tuchel immediately and showed thanks for him for navigating us through the biggest crisis our club has had since 2003.
Instead so far, it has been silence. I said it elsewhere and I await to be proven wrong: we won't sign a single 1st team player by the first pre-season friendly, or even by August.

RJ, we will sign players over the next couple of weeks. I await to be proven wrong.
