Good morning Ed;
a) Please would it be correct to say that Chelsea is interested in Elseid Hysaj or Youcef Atal?
b) If Marcos Alonso was to leave the club in the summer, will Chelsea be interested in Grimaldo?
c) Would it be right to say that Chelsea would be looking to replacing a winger; if so is the club looking at getting left footed wingers?
Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - (a) In 2018 there was interest in EH but Chelsea purchased EP. I have explained before about Atal. (b) Why would they do that? I don’t get your point. (c) Pedro will be replaced at some point but Chelsea are well equipped and the foot a player kicks with is not part of the criteria.}

Thanks Ed.

Some twitter sources are saying that, Hudson Odoi has signed a new contract with Chelsea, announcement coming soon. Can anyone confirm the gist.

Nizaar Kinsella is saying that Hudson Odoi is close to signing a new deal after having words with Frank Lampard. That will be good news if it comes to pass.

And Loftus Cheek has signed, up Chelsea! Hudson Odoi next- hopefully.

Ruben Loftus Cheek has agreed a new long term deal at Chelsea. Signs of good things to come.

Hopefully CHO does the same.


2.) 03 Jul 2019 07:40:03
Not my money I know, but am I the only one who thinks the reported wages are very risky for someone with essentially half a good season for us? I really like the player and think he will go on to be great, but we can’t deny he has injury issues, and will be coming off an Achilles injury next year.

I hope I’m three years time we aren’t looking at that wage as something stopping us from signing a top player that we badly need to replace him as his body just doesn’t let him perform. Still, got to be happy that the contract means they see him as close to an undisputed starter, as it’s a lot to pay a rotational option, right? Get fit and make it seem like a bargain Ruben!


3.) 03 Jul 2019 10:37:01
Roweycfc; that's football of nowadays.


4.) 03 Jul 2019 11:30:07
Nizaar Kinsella is saying that it's £120,000/ week; Matt Law is saying it's close to £150,000/ week- whichever it is, I am sure the club knows what it's doing.
As an aside: Loftus Cheek is a very good player, though I must confess that sometimes I wish that he played street football in Nigeria or West Africa, we would have thought him a little bit of how to use that massive viscera of a body that he's got (esp to shield the ball without getting injured) - I think he can watch a bit of Yaya Toure, Mikel and Essien in that respect.


5.) 03 Jul 2019 11:31:44
Rowey, look at it this way. If we didn't offer it, some other club would, he'd want to leave, and the board would be slated.


6.) 03 Jul 2019 17:25:42
True I suppose, and someone earlier told me Rashfords new wage, so suddenly Rubes looks positively cheap!


 

 

01 Jul 2019 17:13:51
Chelsea has confirmed the signing of Mateo Kovacic on a five-year deal for £40m. Lampard talks continuing today and tomorrow according to Sky sports.

1.) 01 Jul 2019 18:45:18
Our transfer activities for this summer have been concluded gents. Pulisic and Kovacic. Not bad given that we are banned.


2.) 01 Jul 2019 19:31:55
Looking forward to the pre-season games.


3.) 02 Jul 2019 09:33:14
Will be definitely able to see them play Bohs, and possibly even the St Pats game.

I have to be honest; the team has got me believing and dreaming (of a trophy) even though it isn't right to pressure Lampard and his boys (cos they are exceeding expectations in my opinion) . To be honest, I share in Jose Mourinho's worries of how Chelsea will fair when they clash against the big teams cos in my opinion, I think overcoming the big teams will be our rate limiting step to actually winning something (that is keeping in mind that we are serial winners) 😜.

obinna 123

I agree, when it comes to facing the big teams with world class defenders, midfielders and attackers, then that's where lack of experience will count. We have had a great run lately against the bottom half of the table teams. when we hit a bad patch, which we no doubt will, it will be a big test for Frank and the youngsters. But it will be experience whatever happens, and in the long run they will all end up as even better players.


 

 

11 Nov 2019 07:18:32
Now that it's established that the team can be very productive when Kante and Kovacic can play together (cos of their exploits against Crystal Palace) ; it's a welcomed development cos, we are going to be very strong as the trio of Jorginho, Kante and Kovacic can be rotated among themselves till the season ends which means that they all will be fresh and strong till the season ends.
Good morning Ed; I read that we are interested in Sergei Milinkovic Savic; please is the true as that would be something?

obinna 123

{Ed002's Note - I would not hold your breath.}


1.) 11 Nov 2019 12:31:54
Why do you want him? We are stocked with talent in midfield! Kante, Jorginho, RLC, Kovacic and Mount. Not to mention Gilmour and Gallagher coming through.


2.) 11 Nov 2019 13:42:10
Agreed BB91. I also think Ed once said that Gallagher was very much in our plans in the future? Or perhaps that's just me remembering wrong; nevertheless, it would seem like a very strange decision to buy Savic although he's a great player.

{Ed002's Note - You remember correctly.}


 

 

22 Sep 2019 22:25:42
Hi Ed001; please is there any reason why Pulisic is not playing? This is the 4th consecutive game that he has failed to appear even as a substitute. I have to confess that it's really annoying me that he isn't playing.

obinna 123

{Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware, he is just not being picked.}


1.) 23 Sep 2019 06:34:30
Well, it hasnt' really gotten easier to sub him on our last 3 matches, as we've been stuck with injuries. Especially yesterday would've been a difficult one to sub him on.
Speaking of our substitutions - I think Frank should have consideres playing with two strikers in the end instead of subbing Tammy off. If the team's going to mainly cross the ball, which was what we did, wouldn't it always be better to have two big guys instead of Michy and Kante in the box.
That being said, what a player Kante is. He never ceases to impress me, and it seems like season after season he adds another dimension to his play - this season I wouldn't be too surprised if he actually might become a thread with his head.

I came across a piece of information today- that 'wowed' me.
THE TOP 10 CLUBS TO SPEND THE MOST ON CURRENT SQUAD:
1. Man City (€1.014bn)
2. PSG (€913m)
3. Real Madrid (€902m)
4. Man United (€751m)
5. Juventus (€719m)
6. Barcelona (€697m)
7. Liverpool (€639m)
8. CHELSEA (€561m) *
9. Atletico Madrid (€550m)
10. Arsenal (€498m) .
I have to confess that our Chelsea board deserves a thumbs up, if one considers the fact that the Chelsea wins a trophy every season. Our numbers are relatively not bad.

obinna 123

{Ed001's Note - did you see that in my review of the day? Though not sure why it wowed you, it is nonsense numbers that mean nothing. They are not even close to the reality as it is purely just outright spend and only counts players in the first team squad as of now. Chelsea's 3000 (or however many it is now) loan players are not counted, but that is money spent on the squad, even if the team isn't using them right now. The same goes for all of the teams, there is no accounting for the money spent on youngsters, which is huge in some cases.}


1.) 10 Sep 2019 17:28:02
I haven’t got a clue what the spending table signifies but surely the NET TOTAL spend over the last five or so years would be more relevant and probably more interesting!


2.) 11 Sep 2019 03:50:22
The net total is important, where we don’t look good at all (including 150 million for Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Morata and Zappacosta) . Liverpool have an incredible net spend as do spurs, through money wise, they’re the teams to look up too.


3.) 11 Sep 2019 09:15:33
I think our net total won't be that bad, Morata's cash comes in next season for sure; Remember Chelsea recovered Bakayoko's cash from Matic's sale to Manchester United, although Bakayoko and Zappacosta can still bring some cash in next season; I can't say anything for Drinkwater.


4.) 11 Sep 2019 14:36:14
Just shows Liverpool trying to buy the title as they did in the 1980s.


5.) 11 Sep 2019 15:08:19
Drinkwater should be renamed to DrinkAlcohol or DrinkBrandy.


 

 

07 Sep 2019 18:46:08
Really loving the commitment that Pulisic is showing by demanding/ securing early release from international duty (after Mexico game) to report back to Chelsea- in preparation Wolves game. Thumbs up 👍and more grease to his elbow.

Yea J. ; I think Ampadu will do better in CB than DM.

Good post Turvey, but I think Berge has got more potential (as a DM) than C. Gallagher and Ethan Ampadu.

* Kepa;

* James, Zouma, Tomori, Azpilicueta;

* Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic;

* Pulisic, Abraham, Hudson-Odoi

.
I would leave out Emerson and start Hudson Odoi ahead of Willian for this game and Mount to come in the second half.

Why would any right thinking club bid a £100m+ for Chilwell?

obinna 123

{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.}

A STRIKER ALONE FOR JANUARY: Sell Batshuayi, Giroud and bring in a trusted striker.
In the summer we can then make some sales and bring in A left back, a right winger and Ziyech.

Losses help teams see their weaknesses and I feel as the season progresses we will see that certain areas of the team needs fortification and outright personnel change; how quick we react to these changes will depend on how fast the board wants to build the team.

So far I think we should be looking at:
* Buying a 'good' striker to add to Abraham and sell off Giroud and Batshuayi.
* Buying another winger (Jadon Sancho- good choice or someone else with pace, creativity and goals) ;p
* With the way the season is panning out, if Alonso isn't staying, someone else (that's trusted) should be brought in or promoted to take his spot.
* I wouldn't blame the guy that says that we need a proper holding midfielder, cos from what I have seen from the games, it feels like that bit of steel/ defensive awareness is lacking in that defensive midfield position but its good news that the club is looking at bringing back Connor Gallagher.

Yes I think he pulled Abraham down. The referee is a clown.
