Apparently you guys have agreed a deal with Lazio for Savic. 95m or something around that.

This comes from the same guy that also said Poch is coming to Chelsea though, and he called Arteta to Arsenal a couple of weeks ago.

Just wanted to let you know. I'd be ecstatic if Chelsea could spend that way again. Sergej is very good.

Whats the name of the 'guy' Jackson?

2.) 18 May 2018 20:59:17
No disrespect jackson but why would poch go to chelsea considering they have no champions league to offer and hazard and courtois look to be off.

Its a sideways step at best and hell have bigger clubs knocking at his door surely, Barcelona real or psg.

3.) 18 May 2018 21:27:37
All the info seems to be from a Spanish journalist called Diego Martinez the info given is off his twitter so it’s just 1 of many “in the know” people that will crop up in the next couple months.

4.) 18 May 2018 21:37:40
Diego Martinez or Stephen Howson.

5.) 18 May 2018 22:46:46
Mort, I think it's that Diego Martinez guy. I'm not on Twitter myself but someone told me about it.

And yeah, Chelsea don't look like winning the PL any time soon with the way we're spending, and the type of players we're spending on. Frankly, it's a bit pathetic. But I love the club, so whatever. Support them till the end :)

So it might be a sideways move for Poch. But on the other hand, we did win 2 of the the last 4 PL titles, and we sure as hell can pay Poch more than Spurs can. So for monetary reasons alone I could see him moving to us. Or maybe he likes the look of our outstanding youth players :-P

We'll see whether this Martinez guy is full of rubbish (similar to his namesake, Roberto lol) . He also said Martial will be starting for you tomorrow with Lukaku on the bench. Could be a first test for his knowledge.

Hey Ed, thought I'd ask this one on the United page. Any truth in the rumours that Juventus quoted United a figure that they would accept for Pogba?
Thanks for any answer.


{Ed002's Note - It is conjecture based on discussions with two other clubs and vGaal saying he thought Pogba was nifty or whatever.}

1.) If you don't mind me asking, which clubs were those discussions being held with?
Anyways, thanks for the info as always.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea and Real Madrid - possibly PSG as well.}

2.) Thanks a lot, Ed, great stuff as always :)

Chelsea fan here. Was just wondering what you guys would say to a Willian + cash offer for Martial? :-) Let's say the money would be around 15 to 20 million. Something like that seems fair.

Jose loves Willian, and doesn't appear to rate Martial all that highly. Would you guys be willing to sell Martial to another PL club if it meant you got a player Jose really likes?

Just a question. I think it would benefit both clubs.


1.) 26 Jul 2018 19:58:26
Would do a swap of Jose and Fellaini for Hazard.

Let us know if you’re interested?

2.) 26 Jul 2018 20:11:37
With the way United conduct business these days, I would say we would the the ones paying 20m + Martial for an ageing Willian.

3.) 26 Jul 2018 21:55:38
Thanks for your input there, Danny. Really adding to the conversation :)

4.) 26 Jul 2018 22:45:28
I don't really see what united get out of it. A 30 year old limited player on big wages in exchange for a young player with potential to be very good if he sorts his attitude out. What would the next manager say. No deal. Although i'd swap you Fellaini for a pack of cheese Doritos and a can of irn bru.

5.) 26 Jul 2018 23:16:36
he was the worst right winger at the world cup.

6.) 27 Jul 2018 06:32:29
I’m with Mort in this. I’d rather keep Martial, put him
On the left, Sanchez right, Lukaku up top. That could be one hell of a forward line. All three can interchange and the movement and pace should be scary.

7.) 27 Jul 2018 06:39:15
Many would rather keep Martial, but it seems he has had enough and Jose also wants him out.

8.) 27 Jul 2018 07:38:46
AJH, that's why I think it could be good for you too. Seems Martial is unhappy, and Jose isn't too happy with him either. He would be delighted with Willian though, and you guys have enough money not to worry about spending some big money on a slightly older player.



24 Oct 2016 12:59:14
Chelsea fan here, and I'm not looking to cause trouble or anything. I'm not here to gloat. The season is long, and we've been beaten badly by Arsenal as well. Every team will get his share of beatings and wins over the season.

I was wondering what United fans thought of Mourinho's "talk" to Conte at the final whistle. I myself thought it was pretty rich coming from the king of sideline antics :-) Conte is just an extremely passionate manager, and I'm pretty sure he wasn't looking to humiliate anyone. Just that he was happy.
What did you think? Ed004 or other Eds too, if you like. I love reading your opinions.


{Ed004's Note - I think it was petty from Mourinho TBH. I can see why he was annoyed but every manager celebrates differently and everyone knows Conte is a passionate fan. Tbf before he started trying to get the crowd going the commentators had said it was the Utd fans making the noise in the stadium so I can understand why Conte was trying to get the Chelsea fans more vocal}

1.) 24 Oct 2016 15:07:55
Summed up the whole day for united in my opinion, we couldn't even be good sore losers lol.

2.) 24 Oct 2016 16:18:17
maybe he was trying to take the attention away from the players?

3.) 24 Oct 2016 16:35:08
In italy its a unwritten rule that basically you don't take the mickey of another side when there down, that is probably what mourinho is alluding to.

But yeh there's nothing in it for me, he was embarrassed by the home support being out done by a set of fans at 4-0 down and wanted them to make some noise.

4.) 24 Oct 2016 16:55:16
Spot on Jackson and Ed004. A bit rich coming after some of Jose's antics over the years. Classic Jose attempting to deflect the attention away from his poor tactics and poor team selection, as well as the players' poor performances.

5.) 24 Oct 2016 15:25:59
Spot on, Jackson and Ed004. Thought it was a bit rich, but typical Jose looking to deflect attention away from another poor performance, poor tactics and poor team selection.



02 Sep 2015 11:27:08
Chelsea fan here, I come in peace :-)
This post is directed to Shappy actually (I think it was Shappy). A couple of months ago I read a post of yours regarding central midfield options. You mentioned some names and wrote a short few sentences about each.
Now I'm particularly curious about one of those players, namely Morgan Sanson. I haven't seen him play myself, but I remember Ed002 mentioning that a lot is expected of him.
So I was wondering if you perhaps could share some more of your views on him? I'm really curious to hear more about him from people who have actually watched him.
Hope you see this, but no problem if you don't have anything to add to that post from April I think it was.

Cheers! And congrats on the transfer window, guys. I think you brought in some good players. Martial especially I'm high on. You paid way over the top for him, but it just so happens that your club's got cash to burn so it doesn't matter ;-)


1.) 02 Sep 2015 12:30:56
Everyone even the clubs in the championship overpaid on their players.

No player is worth what a club pays for them, personally I think we have overpaid on every player we have bough for the last 20 years. It's just the press warp peoples opinions of what is acceptable to spend on a player.

The press will have you believe if you signed Messi for 200m that you got a bargain because he is the best player in the world(possibly ever) and you bought him for less than his buy out clause. Yet 10 years ago 200m would have been an outrage, and you can't say that's inflation as the last 10 years we have mostly been in recession. And inflation hasn't been that high.

The fact is if Messi played for Exeter city he wouldn't get them into the champions league final or promoted to the Prem by himself. It is a team game so spending such massive amounts on players is stupid and unjustifiable.

Look at the cost of your squad, transfer fees over the course of their contracts and look at the wages, then look at how much it costs to train and keep these players in medical bill, food and everything else the club supplies them. add that all together and look at how much your squad costs you a year, then see how much they bring in via performances and sponsorship deals. If your in profit then they are worth it, if you make a loss then they aren't. It's as simple as that.

We will make a profit this year, where as Chelsea probably won't Man City definitely won't. So who over paid for their players.

But I seem to have digressed from the point of this post.

Morgan Sanson is an excellent prospect, I've watched him around 15-18 times I think. He is a very well rounded midfield player, his vision is his strongest attribute which in midfield is vital as it gives him a good all round idea of the game so he can contribute in both defence and offence. He can make a key interception or tackle one moment then make a key pass the next. His passing and tackling are good, especially his passing range. He has a good engine and is capable of playing box to box. His weaknesses at this moment are his inexperience and his shooting. His shooting is decent but he will want to improve it as he often gets in good positions and then either shoots off target or straight at the keeper or fails to shoot and the chance is gone.
The other issue he has at the moment is he lacks patience, he tries to make every pass the killer one, and tries to beat every man who stands him up. This is the inexperience showing.

With a bit of hard work and luck he will be a top midfielder in a few years time, I could see him playing for Bayern or PSG might see him as a replacement for Matuidi.

He will be a top player for whoever gets him. Similar to a young Herrera but with more potential maybe.

2.) 02 Sep 2015 12:57:34
Cheers, man :-)
First off, I stand by the fact your club committed some very big money on a young player in Martial. But as I said, United is very rich so it doesn't matter. So yeah, you'll make a profit. You can spend whatever you like and still make a profit. Chelsea can't, it's that simple. We can't pay whatever we want to get a relatively unproven player. Chelsea has to be smarter and that's what they have been doing. The club is self sustainable, something very few people would have predicted a couple of years ago. Both clubs are doing well, and my comment was certainly not meant as criticism, so I apologize if it sounded like one.

Thanks for your answer on Sanson, he sounds promising. Midfielders that can set the tempo, switch play etc. don't grow on trees so he could definitely become a hot commodity. I'll try to catch some of his games this season.
Thanks, man!!



14 May 2015 11:45:44
Ed004, Ed018 pointed me towards you and told me to ask you this question. I love working out in the gym etc, some might call me a gym rat haha :)
Well, Ed018 said you're quite a fan of working out as well and said that you'd probably have some interesting tips and hints about training and stuff. Care to share them with me (and other interested readers)? :)
Hope you don't mind me bothering you with this :)


{Ed004's Note - I think somebody is pulling you're leg mate. I enjoy going to the gym but never stick at it long enough to make any sort of progress. Your best bet is the talk health page. Ed001 surprisingly knows quite a bit about supplements. I would usually buy stuff off his recommendations.}

1.) 14 May 2015 22:11:29
Hahaha apparently Ed018 got me then :-P
No matter, man. Hope some day you find the motivation to keep going. I've been working out for a couple of years now and can honestly say that consistency is the key.
Sorry to have bothered you, mate.

{Ed004's Note - Thats no problem at all}



22 Oct 2014 10:13:22
Hi guys, I hope you don't mind me visiting the page with a question.
Regarding Di Maria, is he injured or what's his situation? Unlike some other people, I'm actually worried about your team. And that's due in large part to ADM.
Our own situation doesn't look so rosy at the moment. Costa injured and Remy as well. Most likely you're going to go up against Drogba leading the line at the weekend. Probably a most welcome sight for you guys ;-)
With Azpi suspended and Mikel, Ramires and perhaps even Schurrle all in some sort of doubt, this is a great time to play us.

So was just wondering whether one of you had any knowledge regarding the Di Maria situation.

Cheers lads


1.) 22 Oct 2014 13:22:57
I expect costa to make a miraculous recovery in time for the game.

2.) SomehowI doubt that. It's just too good an opportunity to let him rest for a couple of weeks now and allow him to finally fully recover. After playing you guys there's Swindon, QPR and then Maribor before we play Liverpool. Apart from the game on Sunday, we should be fine without him up until Liverpool.
So for the greater good, I think he'll sit out.

3.) 22 Oct 2014 15:33:57
Hello mate, I think for that reason he will play, be can be rested for those games after. Trust me Costa will play.
I expect ADM will play too.

4.) I agree with Chris completely! ADM and DC19 will both feature.

5.) It'd be awesome if both of them could play. Sure it would be harder for both teams to win, but it's always more fun to play a team when they're at least close to full strength.
Well of course I hope Chelsea gets the win, I also hope it's a good game to watch. I'm sure your boys are going to hold up their end of the deal when it comes to attacking football.
With the talent both teams have, it should make for a good one.
Cheers guys

6.) 22 Oct 2014 17:50:43
Lets hope so Jackson mate.

7.) Costa will play because he has the strenght to beat our centre backs pace wont

8.) MrE

Totally agree, costa will play and not a sign of an injury and don't really believe that he is injured.

Age gets to us all I suppose. McTominay is a fine deputy to rotate into the side and give Matic rest though.

I'm still happy we got Bakayoko as I genuinely like him :)

Wouldn't call that heated at all, just a discussion. And even if I did say we got the better deal, that's a far cry from laughing on here about it as if you'd just bought a clown.

In all honesty, Matic hasn't been top for you, but he's a good player still. Baka had some great games for us, but also a couple of really bad ones and then he sadly disappeared and went on loan. I hope he gets another shot as I know what he can do. Next to Kante he could be really strong in a 2 man midfield.

To follow up on my post, I actually recall my calling the Matic deal a good one for both sides.

So I'm a bit disappointed you took a cheap shot at me, Wazza. Was uncalled for and incorrect to boot.

Can you find the post where I supposedly laughed at you? Because knowing myself I find that hard to believe as I always try to keep it respectful, especially with other clubs' fans.

If I did I apologize, because that's not who I am. And for what it's worth, I'd hate to see Baka sold. Good player.

I'll come on here even then, Shappy! May the best team win that one ;)

Which sadly will probably be United, but you never know :)

Some Pool fans are probably just not used to their team actually challenging for things (though still just the 1 trophy in the Klopp era), and don't know how to be honorable about it. Wouldn't worry about it.

Greenwood's going to be good. Only preseason, but with you guys being in Europa this season it's a fantastic way to get him integrated in the first team.

Indeed he looks a better talent than Rashford, and contrary to Rash he looks like a real striker. I don't think he's suited to the wing positions as his dribbling probably isn't up to that level yet (his technique seems good though) .
Finishing is crisp and his movement is smart and lively, similar to our Tammy. Greenwood's technique is better than Tammy, and that's the difference between them. He can get involved more in play that way.

The big PL clubs combining to produce England's future forward line.
Callum - Greenwood - Sancho looks tasty, with a top Liverpool prospect as well in Rhian Brewster :)

Can't wait till our match in a couple of weeks. You're lucky we'll be missing Ruben and Callum! :p.

Tore his achilles so I think I speak for all Chelsea fans when I say it'd be fantastic to perhaps see him getting some minutes towards the end of the season.

However I don't think we can count on him for any significant time this season.

Calling us (Chelsea) a settled team is a joke :p

Eden's gone, and Sarri will be too. Giroud is our starting striker (I actually like the guy, but let's be real here lol), Ruben and Callum are out injured, and our best CB (Rüdiger) is too.
On top of that we can't buy this summer. We're there for the taking, certainly in the early part of the season with those 3 starters missing through injury and Pulisic being new to the PL.
