Ed002, since you did a shortlist of strikers for us, I was wondering if you could do one for the other positions as well (I know you did one some time back, but that was mostly for youth players and kiddies) .

Thanks in advance!

1.) 26 Nov 2019 12:59:49
No worries!


2.) 27 Nov 2019 16:29:04
Thats a shame ed, when you have time would appreciate it a lot if you could do it when you can thanks alot.

Ed002, are Chelsea interested in Fedor Chalov?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Chalov has been looked at as a replacement for Giroud - but another side are particularly keen.}


1.) 23 Nov 2019 12:27:51
Werner chalov, who else is of interest if OG leaves ed,

{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.


2.) 23 Nov 2019 15:01:28
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,


3.) 23 Nov 2019 15:35:03
Ed 002
Would you see Godoy as a replacement for Giroud at such a tender age or would he be loaned out and a more established player bought for the 1st team squad?
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - He would stay where he is for a while.}


4.) 23 Nov 2019 23:28:38
im guessing the other side in for godoy is inter and we will give them giroud cheaper or something like that my guess and they drop interest in godoy.


5.) 23 Nov 2019 17:11:28
Ed002, would we lean towards 2 strikers in the lineup in the future or would we keep Batshuayi as well?

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any intention to change the formation.}


6.) 23 Nov 2019 17:14:28
Thats good to hear Ed002 .


7.) 25 Nov 2019 19:36:28
Thanks for input eds
How are you lads I would just like to say how much I'm enjoying this season so far
We are playing a good style of football no negative media crap and everyone seems like there enyog life under Frank I know I am, ktbffh.


 

 

10 Nov 2019 06:24:30
Ed002, what's your opinion on which positions need to be strengthened at Chelsea?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - The club will be losing a S, W and a young RB where there is nobody quite ready to step up, so they are the most likely - although the club will be meeting during the international break, after which it will be clearer.}


1.) 10 Nov 2019 09:52:15
Is this in January Ed002?
Are you referring to Giroud/ Pedro?
Which right back are we likely to lose?
Many thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going to answer questions about dates. Tariq Lamptey is the RB.}


2.) 10 Nov 2019 11:07:28
I believe Ed may have shared that Tariq Lamptey has an offer from PSG.


3.) 10 Nov 2019 11:27:06
I’m hoping the Lamptey deal is just a loan as he a player I rate highly?

{Ed002's Note - No, there is no loan.}


4.) 10 Nov 2019 11:32:52
For me, that’s a very big shame and loss. I hope the lad can be persuaded to stay.


5.) 10 Nov 2019 12:59:48
Thank you Ed! We appreciate you keeping us updated.


6.) 10 Nov 2019 16:37:46
Cheers ed. Atal and Werner, I’d be more than happy.


7.) 10 Nov 2019 17:18:07
Glad it’s Lamptey and not Reece James, that had me worried then!


8.) 10 Nov 2019 19:57:13
Lol RVD, Lamptey is pretty good you know.


 

 

09 Nov 2019 05:25:39
Ed002, would Chelsea be interested in bringing Boga back?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - No.}


1.) 09 Nov 2019 15:26:51
Shame, I always liked him a lot. Good to see him do well in Italy.


2.) 09 Nov 2019 17:45:48
Always had the potential but i'd like to see him stay in Italy for another season or two and continue his progression. Who knows maybe in the future we may see him back in a Chelsea shirt.


3.) 09 Nov 2019 20:51:56
I think Chelsea has a buyback clause on him- I stand corrected.

{Ed002's Note - They do, as they do with a number of players.}


4.) 10 Nov 2019 00:01:08
Ed possible to ask which other players we have a buyback for thanls.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea are not looking at bringing any of them back.}


5.) 10 Nov 2019 17:19:45
Ake is one we have a buyback clause in place for I understand.

{Ed002's Note - Right. And others.}


 

 

28 Oct 2019 19:59:40
Ed002, is there any significant interest in Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmeiri?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - There have been recent enquiries about Emerson.}


1.) 28 Oct 2019 21:36:32
And what has been the response?

{Ed002's Note - There is no need for a response - it really doesn't work like that. If a player wishes to leave then Chelsea will not stand in his way if a decent offer is made.}


2.) 29 Oct 2019 08:04:45
Is one Juventus Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes but it is not viable at Juve right now.}

Ed002, would you happen to know anything about a Chelsea scout who will be present in the Dijon vs Rennes game tomorrow?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea scouts will be a number of games tomorrow.}


1.) 22 Nov 2019 19:27:14
Thank you Ed!

Chelsea scouts have been at a number of Dijon games this season. I just wanted to know if it's a coincidence or if we're interested in a player.

{Ed002's Note - I am not going in to who scouts are watching - the list would be huge.}


2.) 23 Nov 2019 07:19:12
Hi Ed, I was wondering if the concerted scouting now is based on any optimism that the ban will be lifted for January transfers. Any lead on that please.
Again I feel we need an quality and experienced CB and unlike the other positions, nothing is said about it. Is this area not a priority because our defending is not as strong and IMO is our major weaknesses this season.
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Nothing has changed with the scouting - the scouts work all year round. If a CB were to leave he would be replaced.}


 

 

17 Nov 2019 06:19:47
Ed002, will any of Victor Moses, Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta return to Chelsea in January?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - VM - it is complicated. DZ - out injured for the season. DD - No.}


1.) 17 Nov 2019 10:39:01
Is VM's future dependent on Pedro's?


 

 

14 Nov 2019 02:32:27
Ed002, are there plans to offer Willian and Willy Caballero new contracts since their current ones expire in 2020?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Yes.}


1.) 14 Nov 2019 10:39:23
Thank you!


2.) 15 Nov 2019 00:22:23
Yeah give him a contract so we can sell him in the summer and get a good fee for him.


3.) 15 Nov 2019 06:48:07
The way Willian is playing at the moment he deserves a contract extension.


4.) 15 Nov 2019 15:13:41
Agree TomB, he deserves a contract and deserves to stay.


 

 

03 Nov 2019 04:46:49
Does anyone know if Makelele is employed by Chelsea in some capacity currently?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - Yes he is.}


1.) 03 Nov 2019 08:25:51
As a scout, Ed? Or in the loan players division?

{Ed002's Note - No, it doesn't work like that.}


 

 

17 Oct 2019 18:28:58
Ed002, earlier Chelsea used to buy renowned world class players in the transfer market.
Nowadays, we are focusing more on younger players like you said in earlier posts.

Does this mean our mode of operation changed?

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - I am not sure what you mean by "mode of operation" - I am not aware that Chelsea has such a thing. The club has invested heavily in the academy system and has managed the loan process well all to the end of bring players who are good enough through to the first team squad. Because of the "ban" on registering new players and a decision made by the club, they have provided an opportunity for a few more younger players to progress - and as everyone knows that it has generally gone well this season. It is what it is and to a large extent what was expected in the "big scheme of things" and the club are very pleased by the relative success.}


1.) 18 Oct 2019 01:11:17
And I’m loving it! Even if we don’t achieve our targets this season I pray we stay with the youth and Lamps because I believe in a few years time we will smash everyone in front of us. Also off topic but if we consider selling Kante to Madrid we are crazy and better ask for Neymar money.


2.) 18 Oct 2019 02:09:09
I meant for buying players from other clubs. Earlier we used to buy well-established players like Arjen Robben and Ashley Cole.

But your latest list points us moving towards targets who have lots of potential but unproven as of now, like Benoit Badiashile and Raphinha.

I was referring to that.

{Ed002's Note - Arjen Robben was hardly a “superstar” when Ranieri decided to buy him. Ashley Cole was purchased close to 15 years ago. I will be far more careful with any information I provide.}


3.) 18 Oct 2019 12:00:34
I wasn't contradicting you, Ed. Just being curious.

{Ed002's Note - It is the usual thing - start throwing up examples from 15 years ago. So I will tread very carefully from now on.}

I remember you support OM, Ed. Maybe you can catch a game at the stadium.

Roman_199

{Ed002's Note - I would not say I support l'OM but there will not be a game on when I am there.}
