Got excited about Chelsea having interest in Werner as possible Giroud replacement. I'm sure we have other targets and other factors so hopefully nobody takes its as definite or anything but little bit of news on transfer front,

Matt martin

1.) 27 Oct 2019 23:00:50
Agree Matt he’d be a great option. Can push Tammy and can also play out wide.


2.) 28 Oct 2019 10:25:00
Given a choice Werner would be my choice as well and as mentioned for his ability to score goals both centrally and playing in a wider position as Anelka did for us.


3.) 28 Oct 2019 16:36:32
Does excite me tbf, lighting fast, hard worker and presses well, hits the ball so well and is a really good age,


 

 

25 Oct 2019 13:09:13
Just saw the sun going with us wanting Callum Wilson and Tini Werner in January, lol as ridiculous as that is, I like the link to Werner, can play as wide forward or 9, I'm sure I reward something about him having medical problems, something with his hearing?

Matt martin

1.) 25 Oct 2019 15:12:16
Think he has to wear earplugs in loud stadiums.

{Ed001's Note - that is correct mate. Loud noises cause him to suffer with vertigo. Could be an interesting excuse if the ref wants to card him for diving. I didn't dive honest, it just suddenly got loud and my legs gave out....}


2.) 25 Oct 2019 15:54:17
Haha won’t be a problem for old Trafford emirates and etihad,


3.) 25 Oct 2019 15:55:49
Knew I was right Ed thanks for confirmation just incase G8 started again 😂 he needs to learn to listen to me.


4.) 26 Oct 2019 00:21:07
Or Stamford bridge Matt can’t be biased 😂 that’s why I only follow away games.


5.) 26 Oct 2019 11:38:52
And Liverpool, YNWA before the game * 90 silence * YNWA at full time,

Youcef atal linked, £35m, from what I read he was really good last season. And would be a top player, But his a RB, Azpi, James and now linked to atal. Not sure this one has legs to be honest imo, other positions need addressing,

Matt martin

1.) 10 Sep 2019 21:17:38
Makes complete sense that we are linked to Atal. Solid player, I would love Atal and James at RB, maybe it's about time Azpilicueta joined a slower league- his performances since last season has being depreciating.


2.) 11 Sep 2019 09:08:32
Football has evolved so much; to have a good defense and attack, I think wing defenders (that is 2s' and 3s') should be able to play as both fullbacks (defend) and wingbacks (attack) on the pitch. Make no mistake, I have complete respect for Azpi and his achievements for Chelsea, but I would rather sell him now that he still has some value and reinvest the cash from his sale in a player like Youcef Atal (that fits the description of a player being a fullback and wingback) ; and if Azpi doesn't want to leave, I think he should be moved to central defense (cos his pace has depreciated for a modern day rightback- who should defend very well and be able to go forward when need be) . A modern day wing defender should be like Emerson or Cancelo.
Besides Atal can play left back too.


3.) 11 Sep 2019 09:27:20
Cracking player. We need quality depth regardless of James and Emerson. Atal and Telles would be great.


4.) 11 Sep 2019 09:29:40
Bring in Atal to compete with Reece for RB and move Azpi to LB. Sell Alonso to make room. Atal can also play on the wings so he'd be a excellent buy for me.


5.) 11 Sep 2019 13:30:09
Emerson’s doing more than good enough at LB, Azpi has become easy to beat and complacent - imagine that’s be even worse out of position. Agree strength in depth just hope it doesn’t affect Reece James.


6.) 11 Sep 2019 14:33:45
I still think Azpi should be moved to CB alongside Rude.


7.) 11 Sep 2019 15:51:23
Azpi is on the decline anyway and Christensen is far better on the ball and in the air. Azpi should be 2nd choice RB or emergency rotation at CB at best. Tbh id even prefer to see Tomori start RB against Wolves.

Callum has apparently signed a 5 year deal. Great news, one for the future and we get to see him grow at Chelsea,

Matt martin

1.) 23 Jul 2019 20:09:46
Matt Law has confirmed that he has agreed a new deal with Chelsea worth over £100,000/ week. Good news.


2.) 23 Jul 2019 23:09:32
Sky saying £180k/ week which is eye watering for an 18 year old imo but then again not my money so the club know better. I just think in a year or two he’ll want another contract or the club will want to extend it which will bump it even higher.


3.) 24 Jul 2019 03:10:11
It’s 100k and no more! Stop spreading false rumours of 180k. I’ve seen enough unnecessary CHO hate on Twitter that’s come from lies people spread. Half of Twitter was telling him to leave last week because they thought he was holding the club to ransom. No one knows the true story.


4.) 24 Jul 2019 10:18:26
Frankie you say it’s 100k and I’m spreading False stories but also say no one knows the true story 😂😂😂.


5.) 24 Jul 2019 13:50:30
Because about 5 different people like Matt Law and Simon Phillips (who both know a lot more than) are reporting it 🤣 so get with it and don’t make up pure rubbish! Who told you 180k a week? The little voice in you’re head? 😂.


6.) 24 Jul 2019 14:20:49
Frankie it is Sky who mentioned the figure of £180k per week.

I personally don’t care what the number is. For me it is just a statement of intent.


7.) 24 Jul 2019 15:06:24
Ah I wouldn’t listen to sky sports tomb much rather listen to carefree youth on twitter who’s very reliable. Sky have gone really downhill. Simon Phillips and Matt law are also very good when it comes to Chelsea news.


8.) 24 Jul 2019 15:43:27
My point is Frankie, it’s NOT the little voice in someone’s head. It’s Sky making out, as usual, it’s got the inside track.


9.) 24 Jul 2019 17:01:26
I even wrote sky in my comment 🙄😂😂😂.


10.) 24 Jul 2019 17:47:04
Sometimes people are a rush to make comments. I’ve done it myself plenty of times.

Onwards and upwards MY MIGHTY BLUES.

What's the obsession with Nathan ake? On here and social media, his a good defender, not brilliant but not terrible, doesn't concentrate and hardly rock solid for Bournemouth, £40m player who would only improve depth rather than quality in the squad, would be a sideways step and £40 of budget gone,

Matt martin

1.) 07 Dec 2019 20:17:38
I thinks its for depth. His better than the depth we have I suppose.


2.) 07 Dec 2019 20:24:09
Exactly, good player but in the same bracket as Christensen/ Zouma. Not an improvement on what we have I think. Needs to be a game changer like Koulibaly.


3.) 07 Dec 2019 21:02:01
matt martin im not sure he's going to improve much either but if it is a transfer that's going to happen let's be positive rather than negative about it.


4.) 07 Dec 2019 22:20:18
£40m of our transfer budget to not improve though. A player we sold, that £40 could buy dembele or grimaldo, I find it unbelievable that we haven’t learnt our lessons ( if even true ) with the Bakyoko drinkwater deals, players who will be amongst the squad but not give any real competition, rudiger back almost so that’s 4 CBS, why spend £40m on one who’ll be behind 3/ 4 names we have, I’m just saying I don’t think our transfer business in recent years has been great and these kids are good enough to be amongst it so only players bought in should be too top class, quality over quantity,


5.) 08 Dec 2019 08:56:20
to be fair matt martin every chelsea fan thought bakayoko was going to be a midfield destroyer so u can't use thay example. id go more to the easy picks like zapacosta drinkwater barkley etc.


6.) 08 Dec 2019 10:41:09
To be fair I did think that too about Bakyoko but yeah any squad fillers, a player who we know won’t be a starter but good squad player, we need serious competition, players looking over there shoulders because the man behind him is good enough to take his spot,


 

 

07 Dec 2019 13:21:05
How many goals have we conceded inside the 6 yard box?

Matt martin

 

 

06 Dec 2019 11:06:57
Chelsea win appeal and can sign players! Let the rumours begin, sancho chillwell atal dembele etc etc etc.

Matt martin

1.) 06 Dec 2019 12:21:04
I guess if we do sign any plait will depend if sell or release players from our current squad.

I assume, Pedro, Giroud and Alonso are the most likely candidates to leave in January, so I suppose we will be looking at players to fill those places.

I also don’t think it will be easy to sign quality players in this window. For example I can’t see Leicester selling Chilwell in this window but I would happy to be wrong.


2.) 06 Dec 2019 12:29:57
Its likely to be a bore fest on here with people making endless lists of transfers targets that just are not realistic in January .
Top players like Chilwell simply won't be aloud to leave short term and Leics might convince him to stay if they are in the CL next year.
The squad we have is good enough to get top 4 if Frank can keep them all motivated.
After a season it will be clearer how the kids have developed and what we need to get closer to Citeh and the Scousers.


3.) 06 Dec 2019 14:18:19
I want Mbappe, KDB, Oliver Khan and peak R9. And I'll be disgusted if we get none of them!


4.) 06 Dec 2019 14:20:28
Put the right money on the table and Leicester will sell Chilwell. That said, the right money may well be a silly figure in January.
I have heard that Chilwell is a Chelsea fan and his social posts do seem to support this. For anything under £50m, he's a steal as he'll fill the role for a decade or more. That said, I imagine Leicester will want twice that.

{Ed001's Note - why would they sell him? They don't need the money. They only sold Mahrez because he forced his way out. That is the only reason they will sell Chilwell in January.}


5.) 06 Dec 2019 17:06:48
Ed001, I think you kind of missed my point. I'm sure if someone offered say £100m for him; they'd take it. But it would take a stupid figure like that. Look at Maguire for instance - silly money offered and they milked it for everything!

{Ed001's Note - they sold Maguire because he wanted to leave and they had a better player waiting to step in. You are the one missing the point. Money is not everything. They do not need the money. They have money. They will not sell for the money, they will sell because a player wants to leave or they feel it is the right time to move him on as they have a replacement to step in.}


6.) 06 Dec 2019 20:42:13
So you think they'd reject £100m+ for Chilwell if it was on the table?


7.) 06 Dec 2019 23:57:09
I think players like Chilwell will have to wait til the summer. If Leicester get into the CL Chilwell will have a tough choice if we were to go in for him but if I was Chelsea I’d say to him it was now or never, as it is a position that we need to Reinforce especially if Alonso wants out. Don’t think it’s something where we could wait 18months for him.

I think January we’ll see Giroud and possibly Pedro leave and replacements bought but otherwise I don’t see much activity unless someone we want comes onto the market. Possibly Alonso if he pushes for a move but doubt we’d see him replaced

GK- Kepa needs to be at least given the season. Caballero a decent back up.
RB - good options with Azpi& Reece
LB- Emerson good enough to see the season out as first choice with Azpi and possibly Reece deputising if Alonso leaves
CB- with Rudiger coming back from injury we have 4 options and the rest of the season will see who can cement a starting berth and whether we need to invest come the summer. AC is probably 4th choice atm but HG. With the influx of academy players it’s possible we could see him leave in the summer
CM- well stocked with RLC, Kova, Kante, Jorginho with Mount able to drop back in if required. Also have Barkley who I see leaving at the end of the season
AM- A position I see as being slighting weak. Only Mount being a real option with Barkley, RLC able to deputise but possibly one for the summer to look into
Wide forwards- Two potential stars and two elder statesmen in their final year of contract. If Pedro were to leave in January then a replacement would definitively be required. The other 3 favour the left more than the right so definitely need to target someone who prefers the RW. A replacement for Willian can wait for the summer if he doesn’t sign an extension
Forwards- Tammy imo should be our first choice regardless of the transfer ban being lifted. He’s still young and not quite as clinical as we need but he needs the space and time on the pitch to grow. I’d expect Giroud to leave and a replacement bought (not a player we’ve been linked with but Mandzukic could be a decent option) . Batshuayi could offer decent back up til the summer but I’d see him replaced then unless he pulls up trees between now and the end of the season.


8.) 07 Dec 2019 00:44:38
Why would any right thinking club bid a £100m+ for Chilwell?

{Ed001's Note - it is a pointless conversation, he has clearly not got the reasoning to realise that a team in Leicester's position are not going to sell a key player mid-season.}


9.) 07 Dec 2019 09:14:08
Lol ed1 us there any chance we can sign messi mid season too? Probably more likely. I think Chilwell in Jan is a dead rubber debate and Chelsea know that.


 

 

05 Dec 2019 00:42:50
And as it's due, Willian was superb tonight, carrying the ball, covering ground,

Matt martin

1.) 05 Dec 2019 07:51:35
Willian has been very very good for awhile now this season. He gets a lot of slack wrongfully by a minority of our fans. But I'll keep saying on current form he starts over CHO all day long.


2.) 05 Dec 2019 11:23:49
It’s his end product that gets to me, last night he carried the ball well and went at players and caused problems all game,


3.) 05 Dec 2019 19:31:33
I couldn't disagree Matt. Just imagine his end product was just as good as his dribbling?


 

 

04 Dec 2019 21:27:26
tomori instead of christensen and that's my ideal lineup, kante kovecic brilliant, getting forward and defending, good hard fought win, spurs lost which opens gap,

Matt martin

1.) 04 Dec 2019 22:29:08
Good match good result but we didn't convert all our chances again but when we do we are going to beat someone badly.


2.) 04 Dec 2019 22:58:17
Considering we have a young forward line it's no surprise we'll have games where we struggle to convert our chances. Why it's important we're more solid defensively, and besides from defending crosses with Kova and Kante i think it's the way to go.

Ed, very very appreciated, thank you, Werner wouldn’t of been my 1st choice but he wants Bayern and they want him, I imagine dembele there’d be competition but I’d be over the moon, don’t know enough about others to comment,

Werner chalov, who else is of interest if OG leaves ed,

Matt martin

{Ed002's Note - Timo Werner (S) RBL know of the interest of Chelsea who consider TW as a suitable replacement for Giroud. Very unlikely.
Moussa Dembele (S) another suitable replacement for Giroud.
Fyodor Chalov (F) Has been watched and one person is very keen.
Emrehan Gedikli (S) Chelsea wanted the kid (16) in exchange for JCS but BL said no - he would stay in Germany until 2021 - so won't happen.
Matias Godoy (F) Chelsea are very, very keen on the kid and there may be a little horse trading with another side to remove their interest.
There are two German kiddies the club would not want named
Joe Gelhardt (F) Wigan kiddie.

Zaha would cost ridiculous amount of money and his goals / assists isn’t that of a £80m player or whatever it would take to get him, names I’ve seen are same as before
Atal ake ( Tomori zouma rudiger and probably Christensen all better than him ) sancho and demebele and Ed’s have informed of Werner interest, if Giroud goes we need a striker imo.
