Looks like Higuaín will soon be signing and should be available for the Arsenal game.


1.) 17 Jan 2019 17:36:34
Would be good to have him on the bench. Think we'll start with a false 9 either way.

2.) 17 Jan 2019 19:09:55

CHO Pedro and HAZARD.

3.) 17 Jan 2019 20:19:37
weely if he won't sign a new contract why would sarri bother having any time for him? cho.

4.) 17 Jan 2019 21:16:49
Pedro, Hazard and CHO would form our best attack, but think Sarri will favour Willian. Especially as both he and Pedro scored last game. Here is to hoping that Higuain brings back the best of Hazard - we need him scoring like he was at the beginning of the season.



13 Jan 2019 13:23:19
It looks like Michy is going on loan to Monaco until the end of the season.

Hope it goes well Michy.


1.) 14 Jan 2019 10:58:52
Like the guy. Hope he does well.



12 Jan 2019 23:09:52
Looks like Higuain is on his way, according to Sky.

My views are well known but I hope I'm wrong.

Welcome to the Mighty Blues Higuain.




08 Jan 2019 22:55:11
Big and maybe some people will say good news just around the corner lads.

Our squad will look so, so different in the next few days!


1.) 08 Jan 2019 23:13:56
eh? what's that tom? don't leave us hanging like that.

2.) 08 Jan 2019 23:15:31
You just being hopeful or.?

3.) 08 Jan 2019 23:22:45
what u heard?

4.) 08 Jan 2019 23:33:55
Spoke to the guy that told me minimum three out and minimum two big signings this window.

He tells me the two in could now be four.

He told me that Sarri is going to be very happy, so I assume one of them is Higuain. I’m not happy because I want Us to keep Morata.

My only concern is the same guy told me JT was going to sign an extension to his contract.

Don’t shoot the messenger lads.

5.) 08 Jan 2019 23:49:39
I hope you’re referring to Icardi, that’d make any manager happy ;)

I’m looking forward to the coming weeks, thanks for the update Tom!

6.) 09 Jan 2019 00:25:38
I think your guy could be right Tim. Some big transfers are around the corner.

Higuain will make a difference. His clearly disinterested at Milan.

7.) 09 Jan 2019 00:44:05
I agree about Morata, I have no doubt he will turn out to be a great striker, such a confidence player . He makes it look easy scoring with his head . He has the natural goal scorers ability to be in the right place to score goals, but has such a lack of confidence in finishing. I would preserver but he obviously wants out, and maybe not a sarri type player. No doubt another one we will have let go too early .
Going by tonight's reports then I assume it will be Higuain, I suppose he will do a better job in the short term, but long term, someone else in the summer .

8.) 09 Jan 2019 07:53:59
I just don't feel Morata could cut it out at a big club due to his fragile mental state. He is so based on confidence and that is probably because of his lack of game time in his career. As a striker you need to sometimes make something happen out of nothing, the amount of times Costa bailed us out when we won the league under Conte is the benchmark in terms of confidence for a top striker. Confidence is massive.

Morata will probably come good at an average team somewhere in the world where there is no pressure or little of it. Obviously at Chelsea you will headline every week. Everyone want to compare you to Drogba or Torres. I am actually confident that he will come good but he don't have the confidence for a big club and his almost 27 soon. I say he will come good because his career at Chelsea started brilliantly. His movement, headers and scoring with his feet were ok. Surely you can't go from being a hero to zero in terms of goals, he has ability.

Good luck to him for the future. Hope it works out for him whoever he plays for and hopefully we can recoup as much money back as possible.

no not hopefull tom b but wondering wat news you might have pal.



02 Jan 2019 13:04:59
Not sure about this supposed TA transfer.

If he is leaving, I wish him well in his career.


1.) 02 Jan 2019 14:24:59
Who is TA?

2.) 02 Jan 2019 14:54:11
Tammy Abraham i suppose.

3.) 02 Jan 2019 14:57:26

4.) 02 Jan 2019 15:12:58
Never thought he was Chelsea level think he’ll be a very good striker at a lower premier league club or upper championship level.

5.) 02 Jan 2019 15:32:59
Best of luck to him, I do like him but don’t think he’s quite good enough for a top team.

6.) 02 Jan 2019 16:00:11
Tammy Abraham?

7.) 02 Jan 2019 22:33:53
This has got to be a nonsense post - why would we sell for £18m? Why would we sell at all? Nonsense.

8.) 02 Jan 2019 22:34:24
Also, I thought players could only play for 2 teams in a season - he has played for Chels and Villa? Nonsense.

9.) 02 Jan 2019 22:35:35
We’ll never find out now will we as unfortunately we don’t play people who warrant a chance. Instead we play strikers who can’t hit a cows arse with a banjo. Tammy has scored goals consistently and you’re either born a goal scorer or not.
We’re becoming a laughing stock of a club now. I see Juve also want CHO now, meanwhile we’ve signed an American who won’t end up being anywhere near the level of CHO when they both hit their peaks.

I’m writing this whilst watching the game, and yet again Sarriball continues to be boring and non-productive in the attacking phase. I’ll be honest I’m nowhere near impressed as what I thought I would be with Sarri. If plan A doesn’t work he’s got no back up plan. Changes needed at the club!

10.) 02 Jan 2019 23:08:57
I understand the frustrations of posters but let’s keep the faith, look at the positives and hope the second half of the season produces positive results!

Every season I try and go to a FA cup 1st round game.

This season I will be going to my old teams FA cup game, Dulwich Hamlet v Carlisle. I will also be taking my young grandson to his first professional football match.

Lads if you get a chance, I would recommend going to see a local lower tier game. They are good fun.


{Ed047's Note - lovely thing to do Tom and hope it’s a great game for you both.

1.) 21 Oct 2019 19:50:21
I played a few games for Hamlet in my youth so it’s like going home. It will also give me a chance to have a look around East Dulwich again.

Hope it’s a good game and my grandson enjoys the day!

{Ed047's Note - fingers crossed! 🤞😁

Watched Klopp hyperventilating in his post match interview.

Putting aside how many teeth he has got. He is, IMO, a weird bloke, I suppose it could be that as English is not his natural language he just comes across as being one step away from losing the plot.

Still not convinced about the scousers and not just because of this performance!


1.) 20 Oct 2019 22:41:29
They have won a fair few games at the death and I thought today was going to be another. I was just waiting for the last min goal and Klopp to run onto the pitch as always.



20 Oct 2019 15:04:29
Good luck Luca. One my favourite players.

Be strong and keep up the fight.


1.) 20 Oct 2019 17:20:25
Vialli was one of my favourite players too. Brilliant player. Hopefully his strong will get him through this fight and he will win.



14 Oct 2019 22:53:20
Also, Tyrone Mings spoke and played very well tonight. Looks like a captaincy candidate to me!




07 Oct 2019 08:48:31
Apparently the NFL have kindly arranged for a trophy presentation to take place on the pitch the next time they come to town.

It will give a chance for any Spurs fans attending and the Spurs management to see what a trophy looks like!

Canadian, i have said I don’t think we will sign any players in the January window.

IMO given our current performances I don’t think a centre half is going to be a priority.

I think there will be decisions to make about certain players. Pedro and Willian are two that spring to mind.

If we do let one or both of them go I think the winger from Ajax could be our target.

While I hope and believe our ban will be reduced to one window, I just can’t see us signing many, if any, players this mid-season!

I’m not happy he hasn’t signed a new contract but I’m still hopeful.

If he is fit and impresses in training then we should play him. If he hasn’t signed by the next window we can reconsider our options!

30 Aug 2019 14:30:15
So, NOT playing CHO would make him sign a contract?

I think he will sign a new contract and as long as we are paying his wages we should play him!

If he hasn’t signed by the next window we then review our options!

I would like to think of myself as a balanced fan but Luiz making demands from the club and wanting to go to Arsenal sucks.

He was on course to become something special at our club but any chance of that will disappear as he trundles over to North London.

I can’t think of two many times when we have kept players who want to leave, so I guess we will sell him and keep Tamori in our squad.

I rate Kepa very highly and remain confident that he will in the future be recognised as the No1 goalkeeper in the world.

I agree Shak, this season and the majority of last season Jorginho has been fantastic but it will only take one poor performance for the same old haters to come on crowing about how they were right about him all along.

The William performances so far this season have been a revelation and I have to admit I have been critical of him in the past.

Although Alonso scored on Saturday, I don’t think it was one of his better games and it will be interesting to see what Lamps does when Emerson is fit.

Big game on Wednesday, I suppose a draw would be a good result but I believe the Ajax style of play will work for us, so I think we can nick a win.

Competition for places can only be healthy. At the moment the team is in a good place, long may it continue.

This might sound bonkers but I would leave Mount out for a game or two!

For me, the MOM was Willian. CHO always looked dangerous and Zouma looks more solid the more he plays.

Our supporters chanting Jorginho’s name towards the end of the game was fantastic and well deserved.
