Hello ED02 A few posts on here about Wijnaldum? Is it just random play station stuff or do Chelsea actually have an interest? Thankyou.


{Ed002's Note - Not that I am aware.}

1.) 07 Jan 2021 06:34:21
He hasn't renewed his contract so that's why they are talking about him.

{Ed002's Note - There are numerous players who have yet to renew their contracts.}

2.) 07 Jan 2021 12:35:34
Chelsea doesn’t want him. Suddenly they are linked to Chelsea whenever they are in need of a mouth watering contract.

3.) 07 Jan 2021 13:46:43
I know ed002 that he hasn't been linked to us. I just provided an explanation about why people are talking about him coming to Chelsea.



28 Dec 2020 08:42:46
A question for ED02 if I may.
Do Chelsea have any interest in signing Pedro Neto or is it just a random name I keep seeing on this page? Many thanks for your time.


{Ed002's Note - No, there is not any interest from Chelsea.}

1.) 28 Dec 2020 08:54:41
Would this be the proper time to ask you if you would do an update on Chelsea's targets? :)

{Ed002's Note - I plan on trying before New Year if possible.}

2.) 28 Dec 2020 09:08:35
Thankyou ED02 for clearing that up, much appreciated.

3.) 28 Dec 2020 09:38:00
Okay - no pressure :) Much appreciated!

Just been on the blower to Olive, she is working so hard at the moment, bless her. Social distancing means fewer agents on board but more work. Anyways, bit of an update, she said the 4 new players maybe now 5? Kai, Benny C, Thiago are all done deals as is the Barcelona kiddie. It appears only a keeper and maybe, just maybe another centre back are coming in.
Werner, Ziech, Havertz, Chilwell, Silva, Barcelona kiddie. lots of talk of a loan for Keppa but not much interest. The talk is all about Oblak, yes Oblak. Olive is trying so hard to listen at Romans top deck suite but keeps getting caught. but the big Olive rumour is Chelsea want Oblak. My old school mate does me proud, I thought I would share with you. chow.


1.) 24 Aug 2020 23:07:57
Let's hope this dream continues G8. Oblak would be the icing on the cake.



21 Jul 2020 22:39:54
Wow, the negativity on here started by a few regular, good posters. blown me away. Calm down boys. Tomorrow will be difficult but who knows? Beat Wolves all sorted. Now Rewind. Utd are nothing special and Moyes will be after a result. And Leicester are without 2 or 3 very good players so even if we lost (which we won't) our last 2 games we will still qualify for top 4. Anyways, bit of news, My mate Olive rang me earlier. Roman, Bruce, Eugine and Marina have all been over and the talk is all about Declan Rice. It appears that Kai Havertz is a done deal. CHO keeps popping up as she told me 2 weeks ago. Ben Chilwell will not happen.100%. She has heard Kepa's name a lot and also "the need for another striker/ forward". But, the main name is currently Rice. just sharing. P. S. Poor Olive lost her glasses in a force 8 gale yesterday, she was outside when the wind struck and her thick rimmed black glasses went overboard and were last seen heading towards the Cayman islands. Poor old Doris (Olive), Bruce Buck has offered her his second pair but she is now getting double vision. 😏😏.


1.) 21 Jul 2020 22:48:58
Sorry for my unusual negativity G8 but I’m in a right old two and eight.

I hope Olive finds a spare pair soon!

2.) 21 Jul 2020 22:53:36
Lovely stuff, thanks G8 and Olive 😁.

3.) 21 Jul 2020 22:56:04
TomB, chill out bro and just bank on Frank 😁.

4.) 21 Jul 2020 23:25:14
Blue Tan, I’ve only got a few things that now work normally and one of them is my very old ticker. My unusual negativity isn’t helping it much.


5.) 22 Jul 2020 10:08:41
I agree, I think a few are a little nervous and anxious. It happens when things are so close. One thing for certain, both Man Utd and Leicester would love to be in our boat right now. Whatever the outcome today, I'd rather play Wolves in our last game than what the other two are faces with.

I'm feeling confident today. Hopefully the nervous feelings will be over tonight lads. Lampard will steer the ship safely to shore.

By the way as always, great post G8. Appreciate the news and the humour combined to make it enjoyable.

6.) 22 Jul 2020 13:10:37
Just preparing for worst then I won't be as disappointed but if we do win il be even more delighted
So it's positive really g8 haha.

7.) 22 Jul 2020 16:58:41
I really do wonder about all our funds. Ed002, is there any good links to read all about how it works and in depth football articles? Ed001 even, if you guys know of any. Very interested in financials in football and could be a possible career for me so thanks for any help.

Hope all the editors and posters are well.

{Ed002's Note - I really have no idea.}

8.) 22 Jul 2020 17:47:20
SwissRamble on twitter is a good follow for those interested in club finances and FFP, he's not an "itk" he's just an accountant who analyses the club annual statements.

{Ed001's Note - he is very good.}

9.) 22 Jul 2020 22:15:48
Can’t wait to see the back of Willian and Alonso though boys.

A question if I may for ED01.
Do you think we could play a different shape, say, 4-2-3-1 and still be ultra solid at the back and have more attacking impetus?
I would like to see something like this when everyone is match fit and sharp.







{Ed001's Note - on paper it looks good, but in practice Rudiger struggles as part of a 4 and James is not the best defensively. You could certainly get away with James playing alongside Silva though, as he is good enough to cover that, I am not sure he could cover Rudiger as well. Personally I would like to see one of the youngsters alongside Silva, Chalobah or Sarr, to develop them and bring them on.

The front four looks very good, when Pulisic is fit obviously. You do have options for those positions as well, so that looks to be very workable.

The midfield two is the one that is difficult. It feels like it would restrict Mount far too much and fail to get the most out of him, though I have no doubt he could play that role. He comes across as a clever and adaptable player, he certainly does not lack the talent or work rate for it. If you could get Saul back to his best, he would surely be the ideal player in there? But again you do have options to switch things about to suit the opposition and rest and rotate, so there is no reason it couldn't work.

Really the strength in depth is there to make any formation work and the style of play would decide how much emphasis is placed on attack and how much on defending. On paper it looks very workable, no shape is perfect and there are always weaknesses you can pick out, but Chelsea have the options to make it work. Even more so next season, if Gallagher stays at the club instead of going out on loan, he can provide the energy to allow Kante to rest and Gilmour would offer more options alongside him.}

1.) 08 Oct 2021 13:28:48
Thankyou ED01, your response and insight is much appreciated.

{Ed001's Note - very welcome mate.}

2.) 08 Oct 2021 14:04:15
Rudiger and a back four would give me nightmares G8.

3.) 08 Oct 2021 14:05:57
Enjoyed your response Ed.

{Ed001's Note - thank you Ash.}

4.) 08 Oct 2021 14:32:45
Sorry Ed. Thanks for the summary.

{Ed001's Note - nothing to be sorry for Tom.}

5.) 08 Oct 2021 15:10:31
How many times did we see Werner fail as a winger under Frank to realise he’s not good enough there. Pulisic is never fit and should be sold. Mount should play behind Lukaku to press from the front. I think Rudiger is good in a back four. The problem under Frank was we had Jorginho and Kovacic in front of them when Kante was injured who are awful defensively and can’t track runners. You sign a Rice type player and we could go to a back four.

Havertz needs to earn his place here he’s dissapointment everyone and he’s had time to adapt now. Move CHO to LW and bring in someone like Raphinha or Chiesa who are proper wingers. Get rid of Ziyech and Pulisic.

6.) 08 Oct 2021 15:20:15
Rudiger playing well at the moment but in a four he always looked as if he needed a sat nav.

I hope he can play in a four for TT as it would save us a lot of money.

7.) 08 Oct 2021 16:04:34
If you play 4-2-3-1 with this team it’s an easy pick.






8.) 08 Oct 2021 17:26:28
Really hoping Saul lives up to the hype or the player I’ve read he can be, him beside kante in theory is perfect.

9.) 08 Oct 2021 17:49:08
I’ve not given up on him Matt.

As I’ve said before, he had a poor debut but there were things to build on!

10.) 08 Oct 2021 18:23:28
If we sign a player like Rice and add Conor and Billy to our ranks of midfielders, I think we are well suited to play 433. Of course, assuming that we are going to sell a couple of midfielders we have now.

11.) 08 Oct 2021 19:29:50
So we’re selling Kante then? I don’t think we’ll be selling any midfielders next summer but then who knows?

12.) 08 Oct 2021 20:57:25
No Jimbo, surely not Kante, but maybe Kovacic and/ or Jorginho?
Anyway this is just a thought, nothing more.

13.) 08 Oct 2021 22:42:24
Anything is possible maybe Newcastle will put a bid in January. ?.



05 Oct 2021 14:30:48
Seen all the posts on the Mendy threads and must say I'm firmly a great admirer of his, he is a leader in the dressing room and a great shot stopper and commander of his box and most importantly has the trust of TT who always speaks highly of him. Big Pete uncovered a gem for us and he is here to stay for sure.
As for top 10? who gives a toss, certainly not me. The key thing is he keeps clean sheets and gives confidence to his defence. We have a very assured keeper in Mendy.


1.) 05 Oct 2021 15:22:30
Couldn’t agree more G8. He is playing well enough for us and that’s all I care about.

2.) 06 Oct 2021 09:40:14
2nd choice
donnarumma would of been amazing signing
I like mendy but Ed was right he isn't world class far from it
Stop gap signing.

3.) 06 Oct 2021 09:54:06
We needed another keeper desperately. That isn’t “gap signing”.

4.) 06 Oct 2021 11:13:25
He was bought as 2nd choice as the club wanted to sell kepa and get donnarumma.

5.) 06 Oct 2021 12:12:26
And our keeper now is now Mendy not Donnarumma.

Our club didn’t get its first choice so moved onto its second choice or maybe Mendy was our third choice, who cares?

I haven’t got a clue if Lukaku was our first choice, he certainly wasn’t mine but he is now a Chelsea player and he immediately gets my support.

People, fans, commentators, posters are all entitled to there opinions and those opinions have to be treated with respect.

I’m not a fan of Alonso or Rudiger (back four) for lots of reason but these are just my biased opinions. I’m sure very few people care about them or agree with them and that’s fine with me!

6.) 06 Oct 2021 13:35:46
What are you talking about.

7.) 06 Oct 2021 22:20:51
I may be wrong but I assumed Ed01 was saying Mendy was our second choice to be our No1 choice. If that makes sense in my drunken haze! ’.



30 Sep 2021 09:36:53
We have one of the worlds best coaches in TT, some of the finest players and a great owner.
1 point off the top of the premier league having played Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs away and Man City at home.
We have already won the European Super Cup this season and are contending on all fronts.
Just thought I would say. ?.


1.) 30 Sep 2021 10:50:01
In fairness to TT he never had Kante, Mount, Pulisic, or James. But the niggle I have (& I had this last season) is the intent and the instinct of the team. It is utterly predictable, it is boring, and it lacks ambition. Not quite at Sarri levels……but not far away.
If he had started with the team he finished with (Barkley apart, that was unfair on the boy, although I know he is not Chelsea class) Chelsea might have been 1-0 up, then he could have made the subs in reverse, ie bring Jorginho and Azpi on to defend it. As I have said a million times on here, Chelsea won’t wipe the floor with anyone under Tuchel. They might win a game 3-0, but they won’t school anyone.

2.) 30 Sep 2021 11:02:18
stephen60, interestingly, throughout last night I kept thinking I was watching a Sarri team - loads of possession with no end product.

3.) 30 Sep 2021 11:46:56
We need to acknowledge that Juve parked the bus in an extreme way for a home team and they are very good at setting up defensively.
I wasn't concerned until they scored as they were going to get tired as the game progressed.
In essence they played us at our own game and had a better striker on the night.
We are Champions of Europe and teams will set up to stifle us on a regular basis now.
We desperately need Pulisic, Mason and maybe RLC to break the lines and create space.

4.) 30 Sep 2021 12:17:53
Valid and interesting points by everyone.
The thing is we need to have a better solution for teams with low blocks.
Under Lamps, our team was young and a bit inexperienced so we didn't do very well against these teams although we played a more attacking game. Right now, it has been the same since TT was appointed and I don't remember when was the last time we beat a low block effectively.
Anyway we need to find an answer sooner rather than later.

Also G8, what we have managed to win has got nothing to do with how good we play.
We were champions of Europe in 2012 and couldn't even go through the group stage the year after.

5.) 30 Sep 2021 13:39:52
Ashk1 Chelsea played better football under FL. Simple.

6.) 30 Sep 2021 13:45:12
Very interesting posts from everyone. To me the midfield and forwards look lacklustre and void of ideas. A lot of players have been poor and appear to have lost their desire. I have no suggestions to make about players or formations as many of you have made some valid points. A couple of days ago I posted moaning about the international break: I now welcome it to give TT some time to put his thinking cap on. Let’s hope for 3 points against the Saints.

7.) 30 Sep 2021 14:36:42
I know what you mean Jimbo. I get brain muddle reading some of the posts on here, (wouldn’t be difficult I know)
just about every good player in Europe in every position has been mentioned as a potential positive addition to Chelsea over the summer. I’m actually sick of it.
It’s the “elephant in the room”.

8.) 30 Sep 2021 17:26:04
I agree Jimbo, I think it's actually the system that keeps us back a bit and that's because we don't have a balanced midfield.

Stephen, I agree with you again on both comments.

22 Sep 2021 08:20:19
I think we will go fairly strong tonight.3-5-2


Big Trevor




1.) 22 Sep 2021 10:21:46
I hope Mount doesn't start he needs a break and RLC needs a game.
I would prefer Rudiger/ Kova to be saved for the weekend as well but I can see them starting unfortunately.

2.) 22 Sep 2021 12:08:14
I think we will play 352 as well. This my prediction for the starting XI:


Trevoh Christensen Sarr

James Jorgi RLC Saul Chilly

Werner CHO

I think RLC will have a more advanced role and join Werner in attack, while CHO drifts to the left a bit.

3.) 22 Sep 2021 12:44:58
My team for tonight.


CHO, Chalaboa, Rudiger, Sarr, Chilwell

James, Saul.

RLC, Ziyech
