Jorginho a agent talking again about jorginho going back to Italy, Italy, and a dream move etc etc, be handy if he could actually move his player on and get decent fee, wants to talk to Italian clubs as much as the media,

Matt martin

Agents have a duty to do the best for their client.

He could just as easily be after a new contract from us with higher wages by saying what he is saying. I treat it all as a silly game that all agents play!

2.) 07 Sep 2021 08:23:15
Don't get frustrated Matt. Whatever happens, I'm sure we will get the best outcome.

3.) 07 Sep 2021 10:53:39
A month ago he was talking about extending his contract which seems a more likely outcome.

4.) 07 Sep 2021 12:59:44
See how Saul does, move him on and in the summer get kantes successor. I get it’s his agents Job but it’s all the time, tell this rubbish to the club if it’s for negotiations, not talking about his players desire to go Italy, we’ve all had that desire for him at some point.



05 Sep 2021 20:28:22
Apparently Martinez and Beundia won't be available for Villa v us next week,

Matt martin

1.) 05 Sep 2021 21:55:03
They might be in prison at this rate never mind playing 😂.

2.) 05 Sep 2021 22:28:51
What a shambles and embarrassment,

3.) 06 Sep 2021 04:27:09
Obviously could be good news for us but this is exactly why clubs didn’t want to release their players. Ridiculous.



31 Aug 2021 18:20:55
Saul apparently DONE, enough time to get kounde?

Matt martin

1.) 31 Aug 2021 18:41:43
Good question!

2.) 31 Aug 2021 18:46:17
That would make this a pretty special window.

3.) 31 Aug 2021 18:51:31
Kounde deal is off apparently, at least in this window.



19 Aug 2021 19:12:05
A week and half left of window, gone really quiet, guessing we're working on departures. any news on Barkley / Bakyoko / emerson / alonso / drinkwater to name a few.

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - You can consider Bakayoko, Emerson and Zapata gone. Alonso is not leaving and the club are looking to move on Barkley and Drinkwater - and some others.}

1.) 19 Aug 2021 19:22:53
Barkley is the one, so much ability, physically his a big bloke, quick for midfielder and can score goals, ticks every single box … except consistency/ attitude.

2.) 19 Aug 2021 21:10:16
Delighted to hear Alonso is staying.

3.) 19 Aug 2021 21:30:59
Alonso makes sense . Great Full. back . attacking positioning is great, only down fall is his pace.

4.) 19 Aug 2021 22:25:48
I would have preferred Emerson to stay and Alonso leave but we definitely don’t always get what we want.

Alonso now becomes the second best wing back in the Premiership. Hope he has a fantastic season.

5.) 20 Aug 2021 07:33:42
Tom, I prefer Alonso more. he's more suited to our system.
Eye for goal too and is a good set piece taker.

6.) 20 Aug 2021 09:21:18
It’s all about opinions Wheely. Lots of fans will agree with you but I’ve never rated his defending and I think we will all admit he is slow and if a player goes by him he is never going to recover.

On the plus side he takes a very good free kick and he does get into the oppositions box.

7.) 20 Aug 2021 10:50:15
The current formation plays to Alonso strengths and with a pacey left sided defender like Rudi he rarely gets exposed badly.
From a defensive perspective his height is a real asset.
But his real quality comes alive in the final third where he is a real goal threat and chance creator.

8.) 20 Aug 2021 12:17:43
Now he has potentially got a focal point to aim maybe he won’t check back as much and that can only speed up play.

I’m hoping it’s the same on the other side.

9.) 20 Aug 2021 13:24:11
Ed002, most if not all of these players you mentioned are departing on loan.

Surely, we need to start selling them sometime instead of perennially loaning them out?

{Ed002's Note - You have obviously missed a lot of what has gone on. Lots of players have already been sold - Tomori, Guehi, Simeu, Abraham, Livramento, Moses, Bate, etc.. A couple of others are just about gone.}

10.) 20 Aug 2021 18:52:21
We will never get rid of Drinkwater: he’s in the last year of a 100K a week contract: who would buy him or take his m on loan?

11.) 20 Aug 2021 19:56:05
Strangely Jimbo he was very good against Bournemouth in pre-season. I thought someone would take him on that performance.



12 Aug 2021 18:34:53
Ok, his in, he looks happy, he wants to be here and I'm buzzing. I want him and Werner together, I want to see werner running beyond him or making runs wide and lukaku bullying defenders in the box. You happy with the signing ed002?

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - Yes but it is a very large fee for a 28 year old.}

1.) 12 Aug 2021 19:10:18
Not cheap, but IF he's the right player at the right club he could be perfect.

Interested to see what happens with Kane also. Cost / output / playing time / etc

One of the two will likely work out well.

2.) 12 Aug 2021 19:07:34
Without doubt Ed but my guess is if we win trophies over the next five years the club will perceive it as value!

3.) 12 Aug 2021 19:08:38
Absolutely Ed002, but I think we didn't have better choices.
The reported wage is mind-blowing as well.

4.) 12 Aug 2021 19:31:13
Anyway, I try not to think of transfer fee or total costs. I will leave that to the club work what it can and can’t afford.

If we carry on winning pots like we have throughout the Roman era, I’m happy.

5.) 12 Aug 2021 20:44:49
not our money. who cares lol. Let's hope he hits the ground running and hits last year's form:)

6.) 12 Aug 2021 22:34:33
just think Tom, if there was a transfer fee for good posters on these sites, u would be in the 100m range, and u are just over 28 years of age. But u would have to pretend to support city or united for a couple of years, before u finished your career back at chelsea, arriving on a free.

7.) 12 Aug 2021 22:46:54
Sid, couldn’t pretend to be a supporter of any other team although I’ve always had a strange liking for two of our local rivals. Fulham and Brentford.

Can’t wait for Saturdays game,

8.) 13 Aug 2021 09:34:09
Funny when I read about Tammy Abraham welcoming him (Lukaku) to Chelsea when he (Abraham) should be concentrating or thinking of how would leave Chelsea. Abraham doesn’t seem to have good advisers.

9.) 13 Aug 2021 10:10:23
What's funny about that Obinna? Tammy has been at Chelsea for a long time and he probably knows Lukaku since they were both very young.
It has nothing to do with Tammy's situation.

10.) 13 Aug 2021 14:18:14
Putting aside Tammy not wanting to extend his contract at the club I think his attitude has appeared to be very professional.

Good luck wherever he ends up.

11.) 14 Aug 2021 13:59:07
As a Chelsea supporter I welcome Lukaku back of course.

But £100m for a 28 year old plus extortionate wages seems wildly extravagant.

I do wish we had gone all out and paid £150m for Haaland - 5 year contract and we would have got our money back at least through his resale.

Lukaku is irredeemable money spent and just seems like bad business to me.

21 Sep 2021 18:33:57
I'm quick to criticise so I'll praise two players I think after the first few games deserve it, alonso and kovecic, I want Chilwell in there but at the moment alonso deserves to be staring, Chilwell may have chance tomorrow, and kov has added some assists to his game so hopefully it continues.

Matt martin

1.) 21 Sep 2021 19:39:23
Alonso is in the form of his life, I must confess, Chilwell has to wake up indeed.

2.) 21 Sep 2021 20:04:56
Alonso has played well so far this season.

Chilwell has to take his chance when it eventually comes along. In the meantime he just has to train hard.

3.) 21 Sep 2021 22:03:13
Matt you’re right Alonso and Kova have been our most consistent players so far this season. One note of caution, just because Kova and Rudiger have scored this season doesn’t change my opinion that they should be fined if the shoot?.



21 Sep 2021 17:12:54
If we tried for and could of got Marquinhos, what a signing that would of been,

Matt martin

1.) 21 Sep 2021 21:59:48
Not in the same as Chalaboa!

2.) 21 Sep 2021 22:13:42



19 Sep 2021 20:10:10
Villa midweek

Christensen silva chalobah
Chillwell Saul jorg kov James
Havertz werner

Rest lukaku and kante, get Saul in there with cover snd try two up top,

Matt martin

1.) 19 Sep 2021 21:57:08
Havertz needs a rest and also either Kova or Jorghi.
So probably Ziyech and RLC.

2.) 19 Sep 2021 22:30:22
I think these players will start, Kepa, Chilwell, James, Chalaboa, CHO, RLC, Ziyech, Saul and Werner.

My guess is Dave will also start and maybe Rudiger.

3.) 19 Sep 2021 23:50:46
I’m gutted it v a decent team, would
Of really liked it to be v lower league so we could rest more and give chance to few others, but yeah forgot about ziyech barkley RLC Cho.

4.) 20 Sep 2021 05:41:13
* Kepa;

* T. Chalobah, Christensen, M. Sarr (or Mbuyamba) ;

* James, Kante, S. Niguez, Chilwell;

* Ziyech, Loftus Cheek (or Mount) ;

* Werner.

5.) 20 Sep 2021 09:26:27
You obviously didn't watch the U23 lose 6-0 on Saturday!
Mbuyamba had a mare along with a few others.

6.) 20 Sep 2021 09:37:58
I certainly didn’t watch it Strasbourg, thank god.

That doesn’t bode well for some of the youngsters!

7.) 20 Sep 2021 17:54:41
I would definitely play Saul against Villa, give him a chance to redeem himself.

8.) 21 Sep 2021 08:01:09

Chalobah Christensen Rudiger

James Saul Loftus-Cheek Chilwell

Ziyech Werner Hudson-Odoi.



19 Sep 2021 19:40:28
Pulisic not likely back for Villa game, more games missed / missing,

Matt martin

1.) 19 Sep 2021 20:58:11
That’s a shame for the lad. He will be playing fitness catch up now for several weeks.



19 Sep 2021 18:29:26
Hard to judge because game had gone for Spurs but werner and lukaku looked good together. Lukaku tried hard to get timo a goal and timo should of had one but the movement of him is so good, mount needed a rest havertz could play behind them, first half was so poor but Kante is a game changer,

Has he the ball quality, press resistant / creative, whenever I’ve seen athletico everyone just seems to be work horses. Left footed cm, so I’m happy,

Matt martin

{Ed001's Note - he was an excellent attacking mid before Simeone worked on him. Plenty of ability on the ball, it was just not being used at Atleti. Honestly he is one of my favourite players.}

With both being Difficult will we go for another target or accept defeat and stick with what we have.

As frustrating as it is that we’ve targeted players who’ve not worked out ( possibly ) haaland Saul kounde etc, I hope we don’t buy for sake of it and settle for 3rd or 4th choice targets, club have done well moving players on snd that was always going to be a big task, thank you in advance Ed because tomorrow will be a busy one if your about to answer us,

Why does alonso have to run his ideas past anyone when it’s the same message said differently? BLM stand and want more than just equal rights which not all people agree with, alonso’s msg is the same that we’re against racism in all forms, and it’s got the msg spoke about again, his driving offence is appalling and I don’t know the details so won’t comment.

I loved the plans for the new ground, I like the design like Bayern’s to trap the atmosphere so it’s as loud as possible. Shame it fell through.
