Reports of Fekir agreeing personal terms, is there any truth to this or is it just nonsense?


1.) 09 Aug 2018 16:59:46
the fee has now been agreed so there is a chance, it is just time that is the issue now.

2.) 09 Aug 2018 17:03:50
I'm pretty sure it's paper talk as the window has closed.

3.) 09 Aug 2018 17:03:50
R u kidding me right now . Id b over the moon if we get this one over the line.

4.) 09 Aug 2018 17:03:57
Ed001, you tease.

5.) 09 Aug 2018 17:06:27
are ye been serious here is it this a piss take? if fee is agreed can they talk after deadline is over or how does it work.

6.) 09 Aug 2018 17:05:00
Please say your not winding us up ed001!
This would be our best window in years if we can get Fekir over the line!

{Ed001's Note - I'm not but time is pressed so it is likely to be too late.}

7.) 09 Aug 2018 17:08:03
Wow did not expect that ed, if we get this done I’ll be in shock. We don’t have long to agree personal terms and sort a medical though so I’m not getting my hopes up just yet.

8.) 09 Aug 2018 17:08:04
Any truth that Lyon upped the price to £72m 15 minutes before the deadline?

{Ed001's Note - no that was Tuesday they did that, hence why it took until now for Chelsea to agree. Obviously a case of time and options run out so they said yes.}

9.) 09 Aug 2018 17:11:20
Did they get a deal sheet submitted in time?

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea, it could be hours before we know for sure. They might have filed for an extension. Again it comes down to the FA getting through all the paperwork to get to it and confirm it.}

10.) 09 Aug 2018 17:11:43
still highly unlikely to happen so edd as not even sky sports have announced it?

11.) 09 Aug 2018 17:12:04
Think they have until 7 to confirm as long as the deal sheet was in for 5.

12.) 09 Aug 2018 17:17:09
bit dissapointing they left it so late and now didn't get him.

13.) 09 Aug 2018 17:22:23
I thought that there are documents that can be submitted that will make the give you more time to complete a transfer.

14.) 09 Aug 2018 17:43:44
Sky reporting the FA have received 10 deal sheets from premier league clubs allowing them to work on deals until 7 o clock .
Hopefully Fekir is one of them deals! Fingers crossed.

15.) 09 Aug 2018 17:46:39
sky news is saying 10 deal sheets are up for extension maybe we are among them I hope.

16.) 09 Aug 2018 17:57:37
Anybody else seen the photo put up by Jorginho on his official instagram account?
Quite blurry but the guy walking with Willian looks an awful lot like Fekir!
Very strange and random pic for Jorginho to post, on today of all days?

17.) 09 Aug 2018 18:07:48
no dice guys he won't be coming we are not on the deal sheets according to sky left it too late.

18.) 09 Aug 2018 18:11:52
I’m not turning SSN off until this is confirmed or denied 😂 I will literally sit here all night if I have to.

19.) 09 Aug 2018 18:11:56
Sky have listed the possible 10. we are only involved in Zouma to Everton.
Still been a great window.
Very happy with what we have done.
Looking forward to another season.

Thanks to the Eds for your stella work, enjoy a well earned nap before the season starts tomorrow.

20.) 09 Aug 2018 18:55:18
Ed001, is it time we all go to sleep?

{Ed033's Note - Ed001 has gone bye byes.

21.) 09 Aug 2018 18:36:06
Dan, i agree . will wait til Ed 001 confirms that the deal is off or on.

{Ed001's Note - sorry mate I fell asleep but it did seem to have been just too late to get it done.}

22.) 09 Aug 2018 19:10:37
Any idea if anything happened in the end Ed? Traveling through twitter and can’t find much! Cheers.

{Ed001's Note - I think it was just left too late. That was certainly the way it seemed when I fell asleep.}

23.) 09 Aug 2018 19:14:59
Hi ed any chance that we could get Fekir on loan with option to buy if we have missed the dead line.

{Ed001's Note - no, Premier League teams are done now until January on incomings. Only outgoings allowed now, loans or otherwise. Football League teams can make loan signings up until the 31st.}

24.) 10 Aug 2018 11:31:50
Cheers for the reply Ed. Shame we didn’t get him but looking at the positives, other players like Hudson-Odoi and Batshuayi might get more of a chance now depending on what position Fekir was bought to play.

{Ed001's Note - true.}



07 Aug 2018 11:50:21
Kovacic reportedly joining on a season long loan, I'd take that.


1.) 07 Aug 2018 12:03:24
Bobby23 - literally just read this! with an option to buy. Great little deal if we can get that done.

2.) 07 Aug 2018 12:18:58
Haighton87, totally agree. Kovacic would bring something completely different to our midfield. Let's hope there's some truth behind this deal.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 12:27:05
Buzzing about this. What a piece of business that would be. Such a quality player, he’s literally got the full skill set. Midfield 3 of Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic? WOW! Let’s hope the 3 backups are Cesc, Ross and RLC.

Now we just need to pack Courtois’ bag and replace him.

4.) 07 Aug 2018 12:27:31
Loan with 'obligation' to buy. Which means he's potentially our player once the deal is agreed. The deal makes sense. Hope we Oblak or Kepa too.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 13:02:26
Check the European page for a bit of info.

6.) 07 Aug 2018 13:53:36
Dantheman. what info?

7.) 07 Aug 2018 14:19:27
Ed has given some info on this.

8.) 07 Aug 2018 15:16:28
Where do i go to check the European page. HELP🤔.

{Ed001's Note - European Soccer Page

9.) 07 Aug 2018 15:36:51
The thread has been deleted unfortunately.

10.) 07 Aug 2018 15:47:01
Basically said that RM we’re in discussions yesterday re Kovacic and they still had business to complete in the next few days in England. From what I remember.

11.) 07 Aug 2018 16:53:18
option to buy could mean nothing if he has a great season madrid will just say he's worth 100 million an where screwed.

12.) 07 Aug 2018 17:19:13
I’d assume the option to buy fee would be agreed before he comes on loan.

13.) 07 Aug 2018 17:32:30
Reports saying no option or obligation to buy.



06 Aug 2018 18:10:44
Reports that we're going to trigger Oblak's release clause. If there is any truth to this, he would be an upgrade on Courtois imo. Fantastic keeper!


1.) 06 Aug 2018 20:24:01
I’d love that. Exceptional GK!

2.) 06 Aug 2018 21:17:04
Spanish sources are linking Chelsea with Kepa A. of Athletico Bilbao (his release clause is said to be €80m) . Oblak deal looks very unlikely cos reports are saying he wants to stay and sign a new deal with Athletico Madrid.

3.) 07 Aug 2018 00:21:46
No way will we spend the money required for those two . Butland at around £20m more our level these days.

4.) 06 Aug 2018 22:15:59
Butland will be our keeper.

5.) 07 Aug 2018 06:35:56
Goal keeping position is one position that any ambitious club shouldn't have to pinch or mice money on (you gamble on it) . If the top goal keepers like Oblak, Kepa etc. can be available, PLEASE CHELSEA, SPEND THE MONEY NOW or we might regret it now and in future (ask Liverpool of their experience) . I don't support buying a half baked goal keeper. If we can't get the top goal keepers, I would rather prefer we use Baulka this season. I don't support we go for Butland.



01 Aug 2018 11:56:41
30m plus Drinkwater for Zaha.

I'd be more than happy with that, Zaha is the pacey direct player we're missing. Hopefully some truth to this rumour!


1.) 01 Aug 2018 13:35:50
Like the sound of that! Get a player we don't want off our wage bill and sign a player we're interested in at a lower fee. Not sure how good this deal is for Palace though.



24 Jul 2018 21:45:10
Not to worry guys, we're about to sign a new goalkeeper. The mighty Rob Green!


1.) 24 Jul 2018 22:05:23
makes sense to be honest.

2.) 25 Jul 2018 07:01:09
Eduardo has gone to Vitesse so we do need a third goalkeeper! So why not bring in an experienced and home grown player.

3.) 25 Jul 2018 07:56:51
I'm glad there's some people seeing a bit of sense in this one. I don't mind the signing cos, barring an absolute disaster with injuries, he won't get near the 1st team

I was expecting to see peaople going mad over this.

4.) 25 Jul 2018 13:50:04
or reina.

Don't want to seem all doom and gloom, but we're just starting to see our players slipping back into their old ways under Conte.

These players were magnificent for Conte one season and a shadow of that the next. And players don't become that much worse in one summer.

We've started well under Sarri, but the players are just beginning to look disinterested again. I could just be jumping to conclusions, but we've seen it time and time again.

Let's hope for a great second half performance and I'm made to look a fool here.


1.) 24 Nov 2018 18:56:21
Man this was only one game we been below par, and you comw with nonsense like this.

2.) 24 Nov 2018 19:09:28
Nonsense of a post. It's frustrating seeing crap like this let alone the defeat.

It's a bad defeat yes, but its 1 below par.

3.) 24 Nov 2018 19:23:08
People saying it's 1 below par performance, but it's not. We've been pretty poor over the past few games. This performance is exactly what we saw time and time again last season.

Sarri has been banging on about our mental problem recently and now we're seeing it once again. Disagree all you like, but something isn't quite right.

4.) 24 Nov 2018 21:48:39
People will always have their reservations about a team no matter how successful or unsuccessful the team is; and these big games are the acid test of how good you are- as a team. Personally I think Chelsea should begin to look beyond certain players. Sarri could make a mistake if he puts his faith on certain players.

5.) 25 Nov 2018 10:51:58
ChelseaLRD, it's not just one game it's been coming Everton we were poor and even the Europa games we been poor. This has been ready to pop up for a bit they won everything and wanted it more and let's be right they have not been playing great but made us look amateur big January forget right winger we require a striker as morata know where near good enough give drog a bell.



01 Sep 2018 17:02:38
Another 3 points in the bag, but once again Morata looked very poor!

Neither Morata or Giroud are prolific goalscorers, but Giroud simply offers so much more with his aerial ability and overall link up play.

For me Giroud has to start ahead of Morata after the international break. Hopefully Morata can score a few goals in the Europa League to somehow find some kind of form. Because at the moment he offers very little to the team.




01 Sep 2018 07:25:48
So the European transfer window has now shut, and we still have Kante and Hazard at our club. At one point this summer it was looking certain we'd lose Hazard.

Courtois was the only big name to leave, and I'm sure we're all happy it was him rather than Kante or Hazard!

Things are looking very promising for the season ahead, we might need to sort ourselves out defensively but I believe that will come the longer Sarri is here.

Now to today's game, Bournemouth have started the season very good and will be one of the toughest opponents we've faced this season imo. They will try and hit us fast on the break, but we should have enough going forward to see them off. A 3-1 Chelsea win is my prediction!

Cmon Chelsea!


1.) 01 Sep 2018 10:02:32
People who don't watch Courtois week-in-week-out are shocked when I tell them I don't see him as a big loss. Very commanding on crosses but very weak at facing one-on-ones and positioning - gets beat at his near post far too often.

2.) 01 Sep 2018 10:03:21
Ever the optimist, so a. Comfortable 4-0 win for me Bobby.

3.) 01 Sep 2018 14:26:11
J I’m in your camp on this one, I’m not overly upset at losing courtoise. Only worry is new boy has had an average start. Thought he could have had a couple of the ones he conceded but it takes time to settle.
Only concern he keeps sticking with Luiz.



26 Aug 2018 12:47:09
While the media continue their love affair with City and Liverpool we can quietly go about our business of picking up the points.

We all know City are head and shoulders above anyone else, with Liverpool slightly behind them. But at the end of the day we still have an amazing squad when you look at it.

Now I'm not saying we'll win the league this season, but I feel we will be much closer to City and Liverpool than everyone thinks. A bit like that first season under Conte, we could surprise a few and shut a few pundits up who have already written us off.

Back to today's game, and it won't be easy. We always seem to struggle away at Newcastle, but I'm feeling fairy confident with a 3-1 win for us today.

Cmon Chelsea!




18 Aug 2018 18:24:16
Great start to the half and then I've no idea what happened. We can see the team now showing signs of how Sarri wants us to play, but we can't quite play a full half of that kind and intensity of football yet and defensively we look very vulnerable.

Compose ourselves over half time, get back into our groove, get hazard on and we should be able to see arsenal off. c'mon Chelsea.


1.) 18 Aug 2018 18:35:01
The defence has to be rethought and reorganised, Arsenal could and should have scored 5. We started so promisingly but was always going to be hard to keep up that intensity and our defence like at Wembley v City looks all over the place when put under pressure.

2.) 18 Aug 2018 18:44:05
So far the defensive system does not work with the players he is using.

obinna 123, we all know we need additions to our squad. But Bernard really isn't what is needed, it was the same with Drinkwater and Zapacosta last summer. They were squad players and added literally nothing to our team!

The million or so wages Bernard would earn over a year or two's contract should just be put to better use. We already have enough bang average players on our wage bill that should be sold and put to better use imo.

But knowing us we will end up with Bernard, as those are the only type of players the club seem interested in signing of late.

We all want what's best for our club, let's just hope we are a little happier come Thursday.

Bernard really isn't what we need, we really have signed some bang average players over the past few years. So I certainly hope Bernard does join Everton.

I hate that we'll be in the Europa League. It means we'll be playing on Sundays every other week and playing catch up from the get go to City, United and Liverpool.

If we're not in the Champions League I'd prefer us not to be in Europe altogether.

Just get him sold as quick as possible, he clearly doesn't want to be here and I don't want players not committed to our club. We're better off with someone who wants to be here.

Salah, what quality goalkeepers are out there and available in your opinion? Because there are very few at this moment in my opinion.
