Kenyon rules out January buys....

Peter Kenyon has revealed the club have no plans to do any business when the transfer window reopens.

Kenyon insists Blues boss Luiz Felipe Scolari is happy with the squad at his disposal and is not seeking any new additions.

Kenyon admits the only prospect of Chelsea entering the transfer market in January will be if they pick up injuries to key players.

When asked if the club would be making any signings in January, Kenyon told Sky Sports News: "Absolutely not."

"It's our intention at the start of the season to put our squad together for the rest of the season so I don't see us being active in the January market.

"I think where we are at the moment I don't think there is a need and unless that changes through events I don't think we look at January as being a time that we would go in unless it is to cover injuries or something of that nature."

Kenyon says Scolari is happy with the club's decision not to bring in any more players when the transfer window reopens.

"I think he is very on board," added Kenyon. "I think he is delighted with the opportunity of joining Chelsea and what he has seen is a club very well structured and that has got immense depth of talent.

"He was party to what we bought in terms of Deco, Bosingwa who obviously is a great addition; we brought in Mineiro until the end of the season in order to cover some injuries we have got.

"I think that has given him confidence that he has got enough cover.

"He is absolutely on the same page in terms of the aspirations of Chelsea and what we have got in order to achieve those."

So Scolari was party to the purchase of Boswinger, was he? A month or two before he became our manager, even though we were (supposedly) keen on Ancelloti?

Was just thinking the same thing Backbiter. I always thought Boswinger was a Scolari buy.

I really don't think we will go after anyone in January. Although I'd like for us to go for Huntelaar, I don't think he's a Scolari target. I think we'll just see us stick with what we got. The only position we need additions in is up-front. With FDS getting some time, Kalou available to play there, and Drogs coming back...Not worried

My thoughts precisely nick. If we come out and start talking about targets (or even areas we want to strengthen) it will get the rumour mill going and the silly season will begin early. I fully expect us to make a move or two in January however I hope it is a move for a long term player rather than a short term measure to see us through till the end of the season.

Just back from the game and I've logged on specifically to post on this thread.

When I read this in the papers this week it bothered me greatly. Couldn't say I was shocked by it because of course Kenyon has 'istory. He is, after all, the John Prescott of football administration. Move the lips first. Put the brain in gear second. And even as Chelsea fan there is now a perverse pleasure in listening to him and hearing him. It has become both ghastly and amusing at the same time. You know. Kind of car crash TV.

But what on earth prompted these comments? What was he thinking? Anyone reading this would think we are brazil '70.

But then we have a centre-forward, who although undoubtedly one the very best in the world, is increasingly suffering serious injuries and prolonged absences. And then we have two wide players, (G4 may perhaps permit me to call them wingers, although I agree, it may well be a mis-nomer), who have huge, nay massive, question marks hanging over them. I accept kalou has promise and may well prove to be the genuine article, but boy, does he have consistency issues. Not to mention his final ball issues!!!! Not to mention his best position issues!!! And then Malouda? Well, I'm sorry. I said a long while ago he just isn't good enough and unfortunately every game against big opposition, he is proving me right. Don't believe me? Then tell me which one of the top four teams he would command a starting place in and why?

Don't mis-read this my friends. These comments aren't borne out of frustration at today's result against the mousers. They aren't. And I appreciate that there isn't a whole host of top-class wingers and centre-forwards who are readily available and that we can just go out and grab. But Mr Kenyon, please. Please, please, please. Don't say we ain't even looking.

In my opinion we should just put in an offer this january to Atletico for Aguero that they cant refuse.

Some people will say that we shoudlnt get him in january as he'll be cup tied but what difference does that really make to us? all it means is we have one extra player for the league and the same amount as before for europe plus i doubt anyone would expect it (by that i mean city and barca etc) and it would probebly be alot easier than waiting till the summer and fighting it out with all the other top clubs in europe for him.

I just doubt highly that aguerro would come to us in January and give up CL football just to be played in the 3 other competitions.

Just throwing this out there, but would anyone here be upset if we played more youngsters this season and set our sights firmly on 4th spot?

Kenyon Was No Loss, Declares Ferguson

Sir Alex Ferguson has declared that he deflection of Peter Kenyon from Manchester United to Chelsea was no great loss.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has issued a barbed comment aimed at former chief Peter Kenyon, whose deflection from Manchester United to competitive rivals Chelsea proved no loss.

In an even bigger swipe, Sir Alex said that the best thing that has happened to the club was his direct replacement that arrived, David Gill.

Speaking to the Times, Ferguson said: "Peter Kenyon? He wasn’t a loss... The best thing that has happened recently has been [his replacement] David Gill."

Ferguson also said the club will continue it's success once he retires: "There will be no problem. The foundation is here. The morale is here. I am not responsible for everything. It’s a funny thing, though; the older I get, the more frightened I get of retiring. But there will come a time when I clear my desk and someone else will take over.

"I hope and expect that they will be a formidable person [his replacement]. Because this job, believe me, is not easy."

will have to agree unfortunately.. and yes I know it's Fergie's typical mind games

May be, but I doubt it is the Russian youngsters we need to buy in January..

Yes, but according to current rumours of the papers that Chelsea is targeting Gareth Barry, I guess the Russian youngster will be more useful to our existing contingent than some English players!
