ED007 just read about your father in law last night, my condolences to you and your wife and rest of your family. I was down near St Constanines church today and lit some candles for my deceased relatives but also lit one for your father in law. Sorry for being so late.
Anyway, I have a question if you do not mind, at the game yesterday, gossip was Boyata may stay until January, unless we get a replacement and a big offer.
Have you heard anything on the grapevine.

{Ed007's Note - Thank you very much, Tim that's a lovely gesture and my wife sends her love and thanks.
Some bad news this morning on the transfer front - Andoni Zubizarreta the Marseilles Sporting Director and a few legal people/agents are due in London later this week to see if a deal can be done for Dembele.......
Gary Cahill or Michael Hector who will both be leaving Chelsea this week, perhaps to Galatasaray and Sheffield Wednesday - and remember BR knows John Terry well.
(I'm waiting on Ed002 getting back to me about Harold Moukoudi but she said that clearly a CB is wanted by Celtic.)
BR to return to Chelsea and enquire about Tammy Abraham who wants to stay but
will get very few chances this season - although he is not keen to drop down to the Championship with Nottingham Forest or Aston Villa.
With Southampton overrun with striker and no one showing an interest in Manolo Gabbiadini and Sam Gallagher now staying, Shane Long is now certainly on the possible out list with interest from Celtic and several Championship sides. This would allow Dembele to be moved on but Southampton would want a sale and I suspect Celtic might just want a loan whilst they consider their options.
Interest in Nick Powell (AM/S) from West Brom and Celtic is known, but Wigan are not looking to sell or loan him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, is the prospect of Dembele leaving really that bad if we get a strong fee for him which is then reinvested in the playing squad? I know he's very capable but he is also very injury prone. When he's fit he is definitely the best we have up front but a lot of the time he isn't fit. Of course any fee received may not be spent in which case we should hold onto the lad. HH.

{Ed007's Note - There were murmurs that Dembele was going to extend his contract but the longer this windows went on the more I've thought he could leave, Marseilles are long time admirers of Moussa and I'm surprised they've waited this long sine the Pub League window closed to make a move.}

PS: Ed sorry to hear about your father in law. A close death is always a tough hit. RIP


{Ed007's Note - Thanks, Bob.}

Benkovic From Leicester any known interest in him ED?

{Ed007's Note - That could be a possibility but I'd be surprised if it happens.}

27 Aug 2018 13:45:12
Yeah specially when he's just arrived but BR was asked about this French lad and he didn't say no so time will tell and thanks for the update. I hope MD stays cause I don't think replacement this late on will be as good.

{Ed007's Note - I don't know if maybe Leicester bought him think Man Utd would be back on deadline day for Harry Maguire but from what I've read it seems Benkovic will be fifth choice behind Maguire, Soyuncu (when fit), Morgan/Evans, so I do see him going out on loan.}

Sorry for your loss ed. Hope u and the Mrs are ok.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, Steph. I'm fine and she'll get there.}

Sorry to hear about your father in law ED. Condolences to you and your Mrs.

So the mumurs are Dembele could be sold to Marseille and replaced with a loan? Seen another post about Ntcham too!? What a disaster of a window this could turn out to be. Tammy Abraham would be a good like for like but do you think Chelsea would deal with us after the Musonda fiasco? Also what was the mention of John Terry do you think that's a possibility?

{Ed007's Note - Thanks mate. Edouard was bought as Dembele's replacement. I don't know anything about Ntcham leaving and have no idea how Kris Boyd of all people would know. I'd say John Terry's a possibility - the clue being that I posted it up 😉

Ah okay ED lol I just got a little confused (doesn't take much) JT surely do a job for a season as cover for Compper if we can get him out the door. If Dembele is being sold hopefully we can get another CAM in as well as the 3-4 signings expected.

{Ed007's Note - I wouldn't be overly impressed with Terry signing, the only good point is that it would help develop Ajer but the last few times I've watched him he looked sloooowwwww.}

He turns like the fecking titanic.

Hi Ed always sad to lose someone close, you will always have the memories. The loss of anyone just seems to bring those close a little closer.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks mate.}

27 Aug 2018 18:24:07
Sorry to hear about your Father in law ED. I will keep you and your wife in my prayers.

{Ed007's Note - Thank you, Gerry.}

JT has lost a lot of pace but usually made up for it with his positioning. Haven't seen much of him at Villa but surprised he played over 30 games. Agree a season moulding Ajer and bringing him on would be worth the signing. Plus he's the type of player that could debit against them and cruise it, No pun intended Kev. Has the Chirivella interest cooled off now Ed? Maybe end up a loan for Drinkwater or McTominay instead?

If you look back a couple of months on the archives ed you will see i posted about Dembele to Marseille.
