That could be a great signing but I fancy Frank will have get a stay that fits all the team now. I think that has been missing, great at times then goes missing for some reason but I think Frank will get it right and if this is true and not fake news he is on his way to building a good team with the youngster he has as well, fully expect them in top4 next season18th June 2020 at 11:36 am #119254
Confirmed on the official Club site now and joining in July is a bonus.18th June 2020 at 4:33 pm #119446
When Twitter user @Masoud_Karimis replied to a tweet from the official Chelsea account with the words ‘Announce Havertz,’ he probably didn’t expect the player himself to like it.
In so doing, he’s surely dropped the biggest hint yet that he could be about to form a fearsome partnership with Timo Werner, who was officially announced by the club on Thursday morning.
Surely not?😊21st June 2020 at 1:47 pm #122022BlazeParticipant5 pts
Lampard has too many players at his disposal, very difficult job keeping players not selected happy, I was always upset if I was on the bench though you obviously still desire your team to win however if a victory wasn’t crucial not so much hey.

True enough Blaze I think that’s where the squad of 20 helps and the 5 substitutions personally I would like to see that continue into next season.
Anyone though who isn’t upset by not starting is not worth having.21st June 2020 at 2:04 pm #122035
The links of Ben Chilwell going to Chelsea aren’t going away but it’s meaningless without Leicester City get a bit more realistic with the fee.
At circa £75m Chilwell won’t be going to Chelsea and we need to look to sign an alternative if we want to strengthen that position.
At circa £50m which is still a tad steep imo given Chilwell is still a bit vulnerable defensively he might be coming to Chelsea.
But it’s all down to Leicester City and if Leicester take the position they did on Maguire we are wasting our time and need to move on to other targets if left back is an area that Frank wants to strengthen.21st June 2020 at 3:53 pm #122101Chelsea.manParticipant142 pts
that is the line up i’m getting at Livescore not sure how accurate it is. but while I’m happy with the return of Loftus Cheek, I’m not thrilled about the return of Christensen. he is an accident waiting to happen.21st June 2020 at 8:36 pm #122268
Today was a cameo of our season where we dominate a team without taking our chances when we are on top. 90% possesion and we go in at ht a goal down?
Congrats to the players for sticking at it and turning it around but with all due respect to Villa it would have been a much tougher job in the same circumstances against a better team.
I don’t like to dig individual players out so I won’t but there were a couple today who were poor imo.
It will take time to get up and running again the most important thing is we took the 3 points but we’ll have to improve considerably v City on Thursday night.
Thought Kante was our MoM back in his best position.21st June 2020 at 11:09 pm #122363MightyMoosParticipant36 pts
CM you were thrilled about RLC I also like him but he was our worst player by a mile, not his position, Mount and Kante were good but I agree we need another centre half and Kepa is still suspect too.25th June 2020 at 12:40 pm #125567Chelsea1967Participant92 pts
5.15am kick off here in Oz. A bit scared to get up and watch it live but I will. Just hope we keep it close. A draw would do me.25th June 2020 at 12:51 pm #125577PaxtonParticipant98 pts
just seen the supposed package werner will be on. basic salary of £250k a week, £10m signing bonus and his agent is getting £11m signing fee. there will also be plenty of other bonus involved. looks like roman isn’t messing about!25th June 2020 at 1:55 pm #125634
Difficult to tell Paxton these figures have come from Germany and disagree with the reported figures from the UK media.
Either way it will be a lot of money which rightly or wrongly is what all the top players cost a Club these days.
If Werner helps to deliver major trophies over the next 4/5 seasons whatever the figures it will be money well spent but there are no guarantees.

Woke up for the kick off and glad I did. Brilliant result and thumbs up to Christensen who I thought did well. City put in and we handled them pretty well. Our defence appears to be much better than that pre – covid. Top 4 looking much stronger a bet now with those three unexpected points.1st July 2020 at 9:32 pm #125993
Watching the second half and gotta day, at first glance I can’t tell which way the players are facing as the new logo and badges are the same size as the numbers and players names. Think it’s time I go to spec savers…1st July 2020 at 9:49 pm #125994sean the sailorParticipant461 pts
442, the logo looks rubbish chum. Ireland had the same and it’s just to big
Have to say, really enjoy watching pulsic play. Fast with two great feet2nd July 2020 at 10:28 am #126024
Sean, yeah, it looks hilarious, like the kit colour but that logo… anyhow…
that’s the double over us this season… The game at the bridge was turgid and we didnt look like winning yesterday. Soft underbelly with us and the last two results show were a long way off the top, a win at city and then lose to a team the wrong end. Congrats West ham.
Antonio has always been a tremendous player throughout his career, makes such intelligent runs and is an absolute handful. Would love to see him join us this summer as he can play anywhere across midfield and attack and England could do with a player like him around the squad. Gives so many options for an outlet pass.
either way, top four race is back on.2nd July 2020 at 1:21 pm #126026
I thought the new kit was the one positive from last night.
The 3 logo is the 3 logo it doesn’t bother me especially as they’ve paid Chelsea circa £50m to put it on the shirt.😊2nd July 2020 at 1:59 pm #126029
The back 4 were really poor last night Alonso can only function effectively as a wing back in a 3/4/3 criminal how he let Yamalenko go last night for the goal.
Also there were too few chances created in open play by Chelsea and some of our passing was dreadful.
I’m afraid we are going have to bite the bullet on Kepa he’s a decent shot stopper but he’s too slight for the PL and doesn’t command his area.
Also why was Azpi marking giants at corners defending balls into the box has been our Achilles heel all season and you can bet the next two sides up in Watford and Palace will be looking to exploit that.
It’s not gone yet but it will be uphill from here and we may need others to capitulate like last season.
Realistically though how many of us saw us competing for a CL place this season given all the circumstances but we have to solve our problems in the Summer if we want to progress further.
Importantly we have progressed under Frank despite the difficult circumstances and we are buying quality players but we have to sort ourselves out defensively if we want to continue to progress.2nd July 2020 at 2:54 pm #126035
999… theyve spent big on the logo for sure… But for the first five mins i did wonder what direction the players were facing, they either moonwalked towards the ball with pace or ran towards it. Hence why i need to visit an opticians.
Poor performance but think we’ll be alright, other teams will drop points around us over the remaining games.3rd July 2020 at 3:10 pm #126094
Chelsea target Kai Havertz “dreams” of playing in the Premier League, according to Bayer Leverkusen team-mate Wendell.”
Potentially good news for Chelsea if accurate?
We need to be focussed on strengthening the defence though too which will require some sales out despite circa £50m of the Hazard and Morata money still being available after the purchases of Werner and Ziyech.
