Thought I'd share this as seen it on the West Ham page from ed02.

There is a chance the West Ham can get Conor Gallagher on loan next season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Potential to help get rice maybe? Although hoped they would take barkley.

Or maybe just a chance for Gallagher to get some experience in the prem.

Think it would be safe to assume Rice won’t be joining unless Jorginho and/ or Kante were to leave.

Palace were interested but can't loan two players from one prem team in one transfer window.
They want Bats more I think.

i don't see Rice as a DM but could turn into one . alternatively, i don't see him as a CB either.
He is still developing and it all depends on which position the manager plays him.

Similar to Ethan Ampadu.

ED001, what would be your assesment on Rice and how does he compare to EA?

{Ed001's Note - I think Rice is a very good midfielder, not really a holding midfielder, but a very good defensive midfielder. He can play the holding role, but it restricts him too much as one of his key assets is the ability to drive forward at the right moments. Rice has a very good eye for just when to get forward and when to sit back, though a lot of that might just be that he works so well with Soucek and they have a natural partnership there. He can play in defence, but he is not really ideal there, lacks a little aerially, not so good on the turn and is still learning to read the game.

Ampadu is more of centre-back playing in midfield, he naturally sits and holds, making him more suited to the holding role. With his range of passing he should be capable of playmaking from that role, sitting back and spraying passes around. He has the pace and mobility to be more than that though, but he needs to learn how to do so, right now his tendency is to err on the side of caution and sit a little too deep to make the most use of that mobility. Shame he has not grown another couple of inches, then he would be the ideal modern centre-back.}

Wow ED001, Great insight.
dont see a role for Rice at chelsea right now. hard to see chelsea put in the money for Rice and snap him up.

sinve westham are in the PL . i doubt if he wants to move from WH to us knowing that his chances of playing day in and out will be limited.


{Ed001's Note - I think he is one for next summer, a finishing touch to the team. And thank you.}

So maybe Rice is more of a Kovacic type of player? Big fan of Kovacic but he has to get forward more and score a few goals.

Tomori or Ampadu? Who will be the Chelsea CB of the future?

{Ed001's Note - yes closer to Kovacic I would say.

Tomori, I don't believe Ampadu is seen as having a long term future at CB.}

Tomori or Ampadu at CB? Ampadu as the holding mid or maybe the feisty Gilmour. Rice or Kovacic as the defensive mid.

We are going into this season with Kante and Jorghino. IF we are playing the ball out from the back, then Jorghino is the player we are most likely going to use to do that this season.
