Good evening Ed002; please is Chelsea interested in signing Frenkie De Jong?

obinna 123

{Ed002's Note - This is tedious. Read the posts.}



23 Jun 2022 12:30:56
Good day Ed002; please can one rule out the possibility of signing Nkunku in this transfer window, now that he has signed a new contract with RB Leipzig? Thanks and have great day.

obinna 123

{Ed002's Note - Yes the club have moved on.}

1.) 23 Jun 2022 14:37:29
ED002, Who has the interest moved to no that Lukaku is also gone.

{Ed002's Note - There are several options being looked at.}

Good evening Ed002; please is Chelsea interested in Sergej Milinkovic Slavic?

obinna 123

{Ed002's Note - No, the club has other targets.}

1.) 17 Jun 2022 23:27:46
Thank you Ed.

2.) 18 Jun 2022 07:31:51
Since tchoumani has gone to Madrid, qh is now the prime targets for the midfield.

3.) 18 Jun 2022 09:58:54
Who on earth is qh?

4.) 18 Jun 2022 15:07:34
Qeclan Hice.

Qude Hellingham.

Good evening Ed002; please is Chelsea interested in Luka Hyrylainen?

obinna 123

{Ed002's Note - He has been recommended by an ex-player but he would not be for the first team.}

1.) 18 May 2022 20:29:19
? gracias.

2.) 18 May 2022 21:52:41
Seeing as they almost got relegated, I would say the Dev squad could use the reinforcements :)



09 Feb 2022 12:36:41
Marc Cucurella’s name is coming up again according to Nizaar Kinsella. Clearly means Chelsea will be looking at signing a LWB in the summer.

Would be much smarter to give Maatsen a chance instead. Will be the ideal moment to integrate him with Chilwell hopefully returning from injury slowly next season.

2.) 09 Feb 2022 18:23:42
If there’s an opportunity to sign a player like Cucurella, I think the club should take it.

3.) 09 Feb 2022 20:21:07
He's a good player, but not at all an elite level player. No reason to think Maatsen can't replicate his level soon. Championship is also an excellent preparatory league for PL football.

Alphonso Davies, now there's a fullback you try to get if there's a chance he'd join. But Cucurella? Good player, but probably not a real upgrade on what we've got.

4.) 10 Feb 2022 04:22:18
In general I agree with you Jackson that the practice of purchasing squad players rather than promoting youth isn’t beneficial. The one thing I will say is that we are desperately short of depth at the wingback position which has been exposed by the prolonged absence of James and chilwell. Dave and alonso don’t quite have the legs anymore and CHO/ Pulisic haven’t worked there when deputizing. I can’t speak on whether maatsen is ready as I don’t watch him enough but I will say I’d feel much better going into next year if we at least had 3 dependable options.

5.) 10 Feb 2022 08:16:38
The best solution is let the club to solve LB issue if there is one at all.

6.) 10 Feb 2022 12:16:43
Marc Cucurella is far more dependable than Ian Maasten, they are not at the same level in any lway as long as that LB/ LWB position is concerned; if I had the option to pick one, I will pick Marc Cucurella all day long, I even think Cucurella is amongst one of the top 6 LB/ WB that’s out there at the moment and should draw comparison with Chilwell- not Ian Maasten.
Marc is a first team player (that doesn’t mean that he won’t sit some games out or can’t play as a backup in a team like Chelsea) . I just think a stronger bench or better depth gives one the edge in football, hence if you have the opportunity to buy, always go for the best whether as backup or no backup.

I have nothing against promoting the youth players but in this case, I pick Cucurella all day (that if Brighton doesn’t slap an astronomical fee on him as they should because he’s a quality player) .

Nkunku, Tchouameni, J. Kounde, Borna Sosa/ M. Cucurella, C. Gallagher and A. Broja are six players that won’t be bad to have in our squad next season, I honestly hope we can make it happen.

obinna 123

I think it will all depend on who buys the club obinna?
Hopefully an enthusiastic owner like Roman. That said, the club will be debt free with a lot of saleable players on the books and young academy players coming through on loan and via the development squads. As much as fans from other clubs would like us to implode it simply won't happen. We are in good shape.
For me, keeping TT long term is by far the most important thing.

2.) 08 Mar 2022 18:42:28
G8, let’s hope you’re right, I’m a little apprehensive about the future.

3.) 08 Mar 2022 18:54:20
I was at first Jimbo until Roman wrote off the loan. That at least means, whoever buys us, we are debt free. With the whole structure of the club being very strong we are still in an enviable position which most clubs around the globe would like to be in.
I'm hoping big Pete stays and obviously Marina, although I suspect Roman will want her back. A lot of fans, myself included, have often questioned some of our big money purchases so maybe this might turn out to be a blessing in disguise if we need to follow the example of say, Liverpool who look for up and coming players for smaller fees?
Hindsight is just that but imagine if we hadn't bought Lukaku and were "forced" to play Broja?
That said, the opportunity to buy the very best has been wonderful for us fans and that has been down to Roman.

4.) 09 Mar 2022 07:57:38
I will say that the thought of losing Marina absolutely terrifies me. There are countless clubs that can validate that money doesn’t render success (manu, psg, early City) . Ultimately it takes elite organizational structures with elite resources to produce elite clubs and she is the unequivocal focal point of our club.

Side note Nkunku is the one attacker that I would absolutely love for us to add. He plays in a comparable ball dominant, high press system. He’s comfortable operating as a focal point, a secondary forward, and in wider areas. I’m actually quite nervous that City could add him as he’d suit their system down to the ground.

5.) 10 Mar 2022 10:19:31
To roman is more important as the new owners may not back marina like roman do which ultimately will limit her duties.
I still hope that a solution will be found for roman to remain as I fear a change may adversely affect us. Is not possible to sell with a buy back clause when everything is cleared for roman to return. Just my wild thinking.



01 Mar 2022 23:59:19
I like TT’s serious response to questions on Abramovich, it should teach him that when he call things out, they take him seriously.

obinna 123



28 Feb 2022 17:44:23
I listen to this Labour MP and I laugh, what a shallow, poor minded and vindictive fellow. He should shut up and leave Abramovich and Chelsea alone.

obinna 123

1.) 28 Feb 2022 18:07:07
Obinna, I mentioned this issue earlier on a thread under the heading “other posts”.

Your input to that thread would I’m sure be very welcome.

2.) 28 Feb 2022 18:09:40
Ok TomB, sorry I didn’t see it.

3.) 28 Feb 2022 18:14:48
I think Chelsea fans in England should come out and show visible support for Abramovich, the man has not done anything wrong. it’s clearly beginning to look like a witch hunt against Abramovich and this Russia Ukraine crisis has given the conspirators more ginger.

4.) 28 Feb 2022 19:10:17
As an owner and for his reported efforts for peace he should be given our support Obinna.

I haven’t got a clue about his business history but I do honestly believe he is “caught between a rock and a hard place” and I do wish people would cut him some slack.

5.) 01 Mar 2022 14:16:46
Nice to see some balanced journalism by Martin Samuel in the Mail which basically says Roman made English football exciting again.



28 Feb 2022 09:14:40
I honestly think Tuchel should be serious and call out these errors/ mistakes (that is if they are actually errors) that keeps befalling Chelsea in England, it's not right at all. Yea yea yea, I understand that he (Tuchel) might want to do things (in England) differently from the way he did things in France (which isn't a wrong resolution), but the truth is that if you don't speak up in English football, the officials tend to take your team for granted- and try to do this 'balancing act' they tend to do (with your games) .

The officials have to take Tuchel (and Chelsea's games seriously), if he wants to be successful in England. The game yesterday was a Final and we are seeing this type of controversial officiating (or decisions) - what does it say of the general officiating in English football?

The funny thing is that when you see English officials officiate games in Europe, they tend to do very well but coming back to England, their brains starts toughing (releasing sparks), it's not proper at all.

obinna 123

1.) 28 Feb 2022 12:44:30
I agree, I think generally the fact that we are always near the bottom of the stats table for wrong decisions that haven't been corrected speaks volumes.

On another note, we have ourselves to blame for yesterday anyway. I think the misses we see from certain players is a totally normal now. It's actually harder to miss them chances than score. If you can't take your chances in a final or big games as we've seen than its very worrying.

I thought Ruidger and Silva were immense. Kovacic was his usually classy self. Havertz has to lead the line for me always, robbed off two clear assists yday.



23 Feb 2022 09:39:13
I think we should pause and take another good look at Kai Havertz:

* Pace: not bad for a striker

* Finishing: top notch

* Heading: very good

* Positioning: very good

* Runs: good

* Link up play: very good

* Hold up play: not bad

* Strength: not bad for a striker, and will keep growing.

* Shot: his shot accuracy is ok but his shot power needs to be worked on.
Already he (Kai) possesses solid qualities of a striker; if you add his ability to drop deep into the midfield (to help the midfield), you can see that he's a striker that can't be marked out cos he's always moving.

I think we have something special in Kai Havertz, his versatility is out of this world and i feel we could be seeing the emergence of a CF that can be an excellent fit with our 3-4-3/ 3-4-2-1 system; and a CF that can pair very with another pacy CF. With our wingbacks fully fit and our defence and midfield beefed up, we can have a very strong title winning team with Havertz (Broja etc. ) as our CFs.

Honestly, we can be very formidable and mount a serious challenge with Havertz and Werner up top together this season, although my only worrying concern about our team (at the moment) is the absence of our wingbacks and incessant injuries.

Obinna, I too am a big fan of Havertz. It amazes me that Chelsea went into to the season we no real cover for wingbacks, I suppose you could argue that Alonso was cover for Chilwell but Dave hasn’t got the legs to play at wingback effectively. I hope we’ve learnt our lesson. We also need to be aware that Chilwell may not get back to his best next season: so there needs to be a quality left back brought in .

I like Matheus Nunes and Laimer as alternative options to FDJ.

Chukwuemeka should follow the Phil Foden-path-of-development/ succession.

I am hearing that CHO could be part of Fofana’s deal (with Leicester City) just like the Levi Colwill deal with Cucurella.

The competition for Josko Gvardiol’s signature next season will be fierce if he stays fit and continues from where he left off. A central defender at such age with such ability- just wow.

Badiashile is left footed, I think he would be best suited for LCB rather than a RCB; however, Fofana is a right footed and better suited for RCB.

We won’t know if we are overpaying yet until we see how the new signings turn out but I’m optimistic they will turn out fine.

RLC (whom is well appreciated for contributions over the years for the team) ; should never be put in central midfield again for Chelsea, as he’s clearly lost as a central midfielder, it’s best Chelsea sells him. Also, If another RWB comes in, he should be sold, however, I feel that if Livramento would want to return to the club next year, Chelsea should shelve the plans of Dumfries or Walters Peters (as a RWB option) and use RLC as a RWB backup to James.

Gilmour is the player I think we should keep for the future as a central midfielder, however, he needs to be patient and go on loan like his counterparts (Mount, James, Gallagher. ) all did. I also feel Tuchel has to show that he could have a future in a couple of years time at the club; or sell him now with a buyback clause.
