Derby give Chelsea permission to speak with Lampard. Should all be sorted out, officially, soon now.

Onwards and upwards now “J”.

Winning the Premiership will be easy!

As I’ve said before this is the time of year we can all have dreams and be super confident.

TomB, it looks like you are our Captain America on the site: Fearless, never backs down and can fight all day. Your optimism is really infectious (and that's very good) .

Haha Obinna, this is the time of year when even Spurs, Arsenal or West Ham Supporters can dream. Or, in there case totally deluded.

Not that I want to trample all over your dreams Tom but (spoiler warning - I'm going to) I don't see us challenging for the title this season.

I think a healthy dose of reality is going to be needed, both on the terraces and in the boardroom. It'll be a massive suprise if 2019/ 20 is anything but a tough, hard slog of a season.

Top six, whilst challenging for the top four throughout, would be a decent start to a rebuilding project as far as the league is concerned. I don't expect United, Spurs or Arsenal to be much better than us but top six will be tight again. Lampard shouldn't have the sack hanging over him if we miss out on top four in year 1. Getting to the knockout stages of the Champions League and doing well in one of the other cups would also be good.

Real progress this season will see Hudson-Odoi becoming a focal point of the attack and signing a new contract. Loftus-Cheek becoming a. consistenr performer in midfield whilst Abraham, James and Mount break into the first team.

I'd imagine a lot will want silverware in the cabinet more than youth team players on the pitch. But in the long run there's no reason we can't have both. It might just mean a season or two of them developing to the required level. It's time for the machine that is the Chelsea Youth system.

J, at this time of year it’s safe to have dreams.

All opinions should be valued and evaluated but my dreams will remain intact, at least until October!

Let's hope the match day supporters have a sense of reality this season.

It's good to have a balance between optimism and reality. I hope we do really well this season.

It's not beyond a miracle that we do really well this season given that the Lampard appointment will boost the playing squad and more importantly the fans. If we can get some momentum going then who knows what can happen. We still have a very good squad and who knows we may have a few young gems I. e. mount, ampadu etc who perform fantastically. Also Lampard may have a positive influence on Barkley. 1 thing for sure without Hazard we will see a unit come out to play every weekend and not look for the big man in every game.

However, there is always the thought that Lampard is still a rookie. Petr Cech who will be the link with the playing staff and board is inexperienced and will he be able to put aside friendship . I hope so.

I am more inclined to believe that we will have a great season.
