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.


1.) 18 May 2018 20:49:02
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 :)

Congrats on winning the Sancho sweepstakes in the end, people :)

Think with him and possibly Varane in the fold it's high time you stop downplaying the quality in your squad. Some really top players in there.


1.) 01 Jul 2021 10:05:15
Thats if we get Varane. i think Sanchon is over priced, but it isn't my money. On his day he is a top player.

2.) 01 Jul 2021 10:15:34
Per reliable sources, the fee paid for Sancho is 72.9m.
It's much lower than last year's quoted fee of 100m+.

Anyway, I fee it is a solid investment for a player who can go on to give more than 10 years to the club (hopefully) .

Upto the coaches now to help him fulfill his huge potential.

3.) 01 Jul 2021 13:42:06
TRD, Jones has given the club 10 years of service. It's quality we need not longevity 😂.

{Ed077's Note - very well put Shappy. Specially considering how concise it is.



11 Aug 2019 20:02:16
Well I won't be a coward about it now. Congrats on the victory :-)

Guess it was deserved, though I don't think the difference between the 2 was nearly as big as the score suggests. We got a bit unlucky with the finishing on a couple chances, and on some other the players just didn't pick the right options.

After your penalty our inexperience showed and it took a while for us to regain composure and take control again. 2nd goal sealed it (lazy by Azpi), and 3rd made it worse than it had to be (again, thanks for switching off, Azpi) .

4th goal I thought was a bit of a shame. Zouma was down because of contact to the head. Maguire even signalled to stop play. Taylor even looked at it and just didn't do anything. Was a bit sad to see that happen.

Winning 4-0 is never undeserved, but I thought it was overly harsh for us. Good start to the season for you.
As I've said before, you have a good team with some very good players. But chance creation has to be a bit of a concern as you had to rely on idiot errors from us. Obviously we gladly obliged today lol.

Onwards and upwards for us. We've still got some big players getting back from injury in Rudiger, Kante and Callum, with James and Pulisic also getting starts soon probably. So things should improve rapidly. Hopefully.


1.) 11 Aug 2019 20:30:55
It’s fine margins sometimes Jackson. I don’t think we should get over excited and I don’t think you should get too depressed, it was a very even game for an hour. However, I don’t see where your goals are going to come from which is going to hurt you mate.

2.) 11 Aug 2019 21:00:14
Jackson 4 nil does not reflect the game as a whole mate but pulisic had to start for me. Goals are going to bee the issue. Big fight on for Chelsea to secure top 4 imo.

3.) 11 Aug 2019 21:25:13
We rode our luck in the first half, Jackson, and it just clicked in the second. Flattering, but that's football. Kudos for coming on here as well, mate.

4.) 11 Aug 2019 21:28:31
I thought you guys played some nice stuff in the first half Jackson but maybe lacked that killer instinct. Defensively you just caved after the second goal. I don’t think you are quite as bad as that result suggests. But I think it will be a bit of a struggle.

5.) 11 Aug 2019 21:34:34
Goals will indeed be the issue for us. But then we've had Morata, Torres and Shevchenko up front, so nothing new for us I guess haha.

6.) 12 Aug 2019 05:46:37
Kante in the starting 11 will make a huge difference Jackson.
But the world class quality of Eden Hazard was clearly missing.

7.) 12 Aug 2019 08:26:31
Fair play to you coming on here Jackson.
If one or both of those two efforts that hit the woodwork go in it's a totally different game with Chelsea in charge.
Bloody glad they didn't!
I had the feeling with everything that has gone on and been talked about this summer that this result would be a surprise to us all.
I just didn't know if it would be a positive or a negative.
Delighted it was the former :)
I think ths season is going to be one hell of a ride!



26 Jul 2018 19:48:00
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!!

You genuinely believe that's the end of it, Shappy? If I were a betting man I'd be confident in betting a good amount of money on Sancho signing for United in the coming weeks.

Pulisic was kept out because of injury and his unwillingness to sign a new deal.
There's a reason he got starts again after getting fit and they started struggling later on in the season. Ideally he would've started alongside Sancho, if circumstances had permitted that.

04 Aug 2020 16:01:48
Yeah I think it's more that the club see an opportunity to get a talent they otherwise would probably lose out on to Madrid, Bayern etc .

I do agree a CB and certainly a GK are needed. But I doubt the buying will be done after Havertz. Onana shouldn't be too hard to sign, and if we can sell a CB I'm pretty sure we'll sign a new one. But you are right, they're more needed than Havertz.

04 Aug 2020 13:20:41
I wouldn't expect your summer to be over in terms of buying after Sancho. Probably another defender to join you guys. You'll be solid.

Hopefully we do something similar in signing Havertz plus a CB. I doubt one club will run away with it next season.

Well, congratulations United fans :-) after months of bantering and competing online for his signature, seems the United fans win this one over Chelsea fans!

Really expensive signing, but for sure now you'll have a top attack and should be competing for title next season. Seems like the Liverpool-City dominance should be broken for a bit.

Nice transfer :)

Chelsea could probably buy Kane. The interest in Haaland is also there, and Ed002 has stated that Chelsea can offer a nice financial package. Now I know Haaland won't join Chelsea, but it means there's money available to buy again.

That said, no way in hell Levy sells him to us, so it's a non-starter. If Kane leaves I could only see him joining United or City. Probably United as City haven't ever quite spent that much on just 1 player. I think Kane himself might well want to stay in PL to break Shearer's record, so if he leaves I'd guess it's to United. He'd immediately transform you into title favorites too.

Desailly, Gallas, and especially Carvalho were all very good, definitely agreed. Carvalho probably one of the more underrated defenders from those years.

But I just can't agree on Terry. He read the play wonderfully well, otherwise he would've been lost a lot due to his lack of pace/ mobility. Talk about last ditch tackling, that's pretty much Cahill's bread and butter. Cahill is the embodiment - or perhaps I should say 'was' - of reactive defending, not Terry.

Another aspect that made him special was his organization of the defense, something we've sorely lacked over the past few seasons. Terry was brilliant at it, which is probably again due to him being excellent at reading the game.

Perhaps he was never at Maldini's level, but then who is? Terry's one of the top CBs to have played in the PL, and that's not because of last ditch tackles.

I don't come on the sites often anymore, long time no see!

Shappy, so you honestly think Terry didn't have good reading of the play? I know you're a United fan and I'm a Chelsea fan so bias is a factor, both for and against. But Terry is rightly lauded as one of the greatest CBs of his generation. He didn't have great speed, but his game intelligence and reading were superb. If not he would never have been able to reach the heights he did.

To be fair, guys, I think a LOT of neutrals would like watching a Lyon vs Leipzig final. Leipzig play some phenomenal football, and if Lyon were to make it that would mean they beat both City and Bayern, indicating they're a very strong team as well.

This isn't me hating on United, it's been only a year since Chelsea won the Europa. But there's no comparison. Obviously it's nice to win a trophy, but playing CL (even with extremely limited chances of ending up the winner) easily beats playing Europa and having a bigger chance of going to the final.

As a rival fan indeed it's pretty annoying seeing United get most 50/ 50 penalty decisions in their favor. Not saying they're not penalties, but some are just soft and only given from time to time, while United seem to get them all the time this season :-p

That said, United fans shouldn't care. It's in your favor, so enjoy it. I would if Chelsea got those decisions.
