JOHN Terry finally had a smile back on his face last night.

After the week from hell when his missed penalty cost Chelsea the European Cup, he was celebrating instead of crying at Wembley.

His moment of salvation was not that far from the penalty spot, but this time he buried his header from a pinpoint David Beckham cross to give England the lead against the USA.

Fabio Capello showed faith in the Chelsea defender by handing him an audition to become his full-time skipper. And when the chips were down, Terry responded in the only way he knows how.

He might wear his heart on his sleeve, but he bleeds the blue of Chelsea and the red and white of England.

When Beckham swung in his 38th- minute free-kick there was only one person who was going to be on the end of it.

Terry made the point of apologising to Chelsea fans for letting them down in Moscow, but the 26-year-old does not need to say sorry to his club or his country.

Steven Gerrard made it 2-0 when he slotted home from second-half substitute Gareth Barry’s pass in the 59th minute.

And with 12 minutes left Terry’s team-mate Joe Cole had something to shout about when he came on for his 50th cap.

Capello is in danger of becoming England’s very own tinkerman.

The amount of changes he has made to his starting England side in the last three games would make both Claudio Ranieri and Rafael Benitez proud.

For example, last night against the Americans, Gerrard was played on the left of midfield.

It was his third different starting role for England under Capello in three games.

Against Switzerland he was in the centre of midfield, and in the defeat by France he was played as second striker behind Rooney.

He must have been pulling his hair out last night as he is used to being shoved around the Liverpool team by Benitez, but perhaps expected some consistency from Capello.

The Italian boss talked before the game about finding a place in the team for Gerrard, but that is hardly the way to treat a dynamic star who this country considers one of their very best.

But the bottom line is that wherever he plays Gerrard knows how to score goals. Jermain Defoe laid a Owen Hargreaves ball into the path of Barry,

The Aston Villa skipper had just replaced the impressive Frank Lampard as sub and virtually with his first touch he swept the ball into the path of Gerrard.

With only substitute keeper Brad Guzan to beat, the Anfield ace scored easily as his accurate strike eased its way inside the far post.

Becks was given a special golden cap before the game, presented by one of his Manchester United heroes, Sir Bobby Charlton.

He won his 100th cap against France in March, which made him only the fifth England player to pass the century mark — with Sir Bobby one of the others.

The USA have had a great record recently, having won four of their last five games, with their last victory a 3-0 win over Poland, who by the way will be at Euro 2008 unlike England.

But the Americans’ football was poor as England slowly but surely took control of this game.

England’s opening efforts were tentative with Beckham shooting over high and wide from a Gerrard cross.

Then, from a set-piece, the two swapped roles as Becks provided for the Liverpool skipper and his on-target strike was only headed away almost on the line by Fulham’s Clint Dempsey.

Defoe should have got on the scoresheet before Terry scored.

The Spurs striker’s inclusion was a bit of a surprise given that it was widely expected that Dean Ashton would be given his debut.

But Defoe’s end to the season at Portsmouth was impressive, and he has the pace to sit in front of Rooney, who was just tucked in behind him.

But in the 34th minute he did not have the accuracy. Gerrard pounced on a loose ball on the left, and crossed deliciously for Defoe, who had got in front of his marker, but with the goal at his mercy he wastefully guided the ball wide.

Terry’s goal was a magnificent lift and sent the players in at half-time in the right mood.

The only change Capello made was to swap David Bentley for Beckham as he clearly wanted to take another look at the Blackburn man.

But it was the USA who nearly scored at the start of the second-half. Heath Pearce found space on the left and he crossed smartly for Fulham’s Eddie Johnson.

The striker hit his effort first time and it whistled just past the post with James stranded.

Defoe then had two great chances only to be denied by Tim Howard.

The Everton goalkeeper easily held a long-range shot by the Pompey man. Then when Defoe turned the defence his scissor kick was straight down Howard’s throat.

Terry climbed above the USA defence, and, just like he had in the first England game against Brazil at the new Wembley, he headed home perfectly to hand the Three Lions the lead.

It was exactly the response that Capello was looking for from a floored hero.

Another Name Enters the Frame!

With so many contenders emerging and then being ruled out, the scope to suggest who`ll be the next gaffer at Stamford Bridge expands by the hour.

According to L`Equipe, Didier Deschamps has been contacted by Chelsea with regard to the position.

Didier, a World Cup winner with France and ex-Chelsea player, has carved out a reputation in football after spells as manager of AS Monaco and Juventus.

Whether he`ll emerge as a leading candidate remains to be seen.

Could the player labelled as the Water Carrier by Eric Cantona, be a surprise choice?

Your thoughts please!

Chelsea To Swap Drogba, Carvalho For Kaka?

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is lining up an incredible player-exchange deal for AC Milan superstar Kaka, according to reports…

The Blues are currently without a manager following the sacking of Avram Grant after a trophyless season, with ex-Barcelona boss Frank Rijkaard and Russia coach Guus Hiddink favourites to take the reins.

But whoever is appointed may arrive to find a significantly altered squad from the one that fell to Manchester United in the Champions League last week.

Although Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck has played down talk of wholesale changes over the summer, Abramovich is reportedly keen to overhaul the team as he seeks a more attractive brand of football.

And The Mail claims the Russian billionaire is preparing to offer want-away striker Didier Drogba and defender Ricardo Carvalho plus cash in order to tempt Milan to part with the reigning FIFA World Player of the Year.

It is not the first time in recent months Chelsea have been linked with an audacious bid, the club shouting down claims they were prepared to pay ₤80 million for Barca prodigy Lionel Messi.

And nor would it be the first time Abramovich has bought a player – a Milan player, indeed – without the manager’s consent, as he famously spent ₤30 million to bring Andriy Shevchenko to Stamford Bridge despite then-manager Jose Mourinho’s disapproval.

Kaka, signed a contract extension with the Rossoneri in February, is currently out of action after undergoing surgery on his left knee.


The rumour just refuses to go away!

Sunday, Sky Sports ran a Breaking News banner implying that Jose Mourinho had ruled out a return to Chelsea.

Monday was supposed to be the day that, according to various reports, Jose Mourinho would be announced as the manager of a major club, probably Inter Milan.

However, this morning an exclusive in the Sun, penned by Ian McGarry, suggests that there is a possibility that Mourinho could make a sensational return to Stamford Bridge.

Now normally anything printed in the aforementioned rag could be taken with a pinch of salt, however, I`ve watched Ian McGarry on Paper Talk on Chelsea TV and he normally has his finger on the pulse.

Naturally, a Jose return would see an incredible turnaround and would also involve a certain amount of upheaval as McGarry points out that Jose would only come back on the following terms,

1. That he would have complete control of all football matters including transfers, first team and the academy.

2. Academy director Frank Arsesen is sacked.

3. That he could bring back all his backroom staff with him.

Now points 1 and 3 do not seem to be a stumbling block, however point two could be the proverbial sticking point considering the rumoured closeness of Arnesen and Abramovich.

However, whilst accepting that McGarry has uncovered something of an exclusive here, I can`t help feeling that Mourinho is playing a few mind games, in a very similar manner to which he supposedly courted the England job!

Therefore, it poses the question, is Mourinho the proverbial tease?

Lets Sing Together With Our Special One


After the dismissal of Avram Grant, our ex-manager, Jose Mourinho hasn`t been slow in coming out and criticising Avram.

In a leading Sunday tabloid, Jose, on asked if Grant`s failure to win silverware means he is a failure, is being quoted as saying,

"That depends on your philosophy of leadership.""In my philosophy it was a very bad one because in football 'almost` means defeat."

"Chelsea almost own the Carling Cup, almost won the Champions League and almost won the Premier League. Almost is nothing."

"After two titles per season for the last three years there were zero titles this season which, in my philosophy, means a really bad season."

"Maybe in the philosophy of a loser this was a great season, which I respect. The best team lost the Champions League Final, like last season the best team lost the Champions League semi-final."

"That is football. I have always said that details make the difference at this level - and luck is a big detail."

"The supporters deserve more, Roman Abramovich and the board deserve more."

Is Jose right?

Your thoughts please!

Hello once again everybody! Yes, AVRAM GRANT has left Chelsea.

I was never a fan of Avram Grant from the very beginning as I am a loyal Jose Mourinho fan and knowing that Avram backstabbed Mourinho
leading to his sacking back in September ( correct me if im wrong! ).

It appears that Avram was invited to Roman`s posh London gaff yesterday afternoon and emerged some three hours later having dramatically altered his opinion of his former boss and Chelsea Football Club.

Amongst the quotes lurking in the article, is one that suggests that Chelsea somehow tried to contrive to take the easy way out,

"Roman offered Avram the opportunity to resign but he was having none of it."

Avram, according to the same source, implied that would not be the case and that if they wanted rid they`d have to sack him, which it appears they promptly did.

This has resulted in an icy blast being fired in the direction of Roman with another of Avram`s associates remarking,

"Roman is treating Chelsea like one of his businesses in Russia. The problem is it`s not about metal, oil and gas, its people he is dealing with and he is being totally ruthless."

A fair point but when you`ve invested as much as Roman has in our club do you not have the right to hire and fire as you see fit?

Seemingly, amongst the furore of yesterday, Avram was offered the chance to return to his old position of 'Director of Football` an offer he promptly, if the source in the NOTW is correct, refused.

Once again a close friend has been lured into making a comment remarking,

"How could Avram have accepted a new job of 'Director of Football`, which effectively meant taking a pay cut of £1.5 million a year. It`s nonsense."

In the world of football it probably is but in the real world I live in, I know thousands who`d snap your right arm off to be even offered a salary in the region of circa £2 million a year.

However, perhaps the club were a little misguided in offering Avram such a role as the friend goes on to remark,

"Anyway, no other coach would have come in knowing that Avram was still in the background - they would have been worried he would have been after his old job back."

A fair point, except after removing him from his post once would the club even consider offering him a return to that position one day?

Naturally, the events of yesterday have soured what was once a good relationship, probably inevitable in a high-pressure sport where success, after investing millions, is the minimum requirement.

However, a parting quote from one of Avram`s friends would indicate that it might take more than the occasional phone call to repair the damage, remarking,

"Avram said he doesn`t trust them any more. It was not a friendly meeting. Avram does not want anything to do with the club at all now."

"He didn`t even want to discuss his compensation, which will run into millions. He told Roman to speak to his lawyer."

WOW! That hurts! :)

Looking back though, there`s no doubting that Avram did a good job for us, albeit with limited abilities that probably affected his hold over the dressing room.

Untold glory was but a penalty kick away, his win ratio as Chelsea manager remains testament to his eight month spell so you would have thought that his dismissal would have merited more than the two paragraphs on the official web site that read,

"Chelsea Football Club can confirm that Avram Grant has had his contract as manager terminated today. This follows meetings over the last two days."

"Everybody at Chelsea FC would like to thank Avram for his contribution since taking over as manager last September. We will now be concentrating all our efforts on identifying a new manager and there will be no further comment until an appointment is made."

Well, now I wanna know what you guys think about his removal?

Don't Worry Lampard Will Not Leave Chelsea Next Season...

The Sun reports that Frank Lampard is set to open fresh talks with Chelsea over a new deal at Stamford Bridge, once he returns from Englands upcoming friendly internationals.

The star midfielder’s future had been thrown into choas after media speculation strongly linked the England international with a move to Inter Milan.

Chelsea were left stunned by rumours that Lampard was set to join Serie A champions Inter Milan after the UEFA Champions League Final was over. Rumours suggested that the possible arrival of Jose Mourinho was the reason Lampard was supposedly set to arrive at the San Siro.

Lampard told the press: “My contract has obviously been the last thing on my mind in the last six weeks, but i will sit down with them (Chelsea) aftr the England games”. He added “I hope we can come to a conclusion. I am pretty confident we can, I have said that many times before”.
Lampard has played for Chelsea 247 times since joining for £11 million from West Ham, and is currently with Fabio Capello’s England side, who take on the USA at Wembley before travelling to Trinadad and Tobago.

This Does Not Mean A Failure

I guess all Chelsea fans had been disappointed with the result just now. It had been a very challenging match and both side was held together with the score 1-1 until penalty shootout.

But yet Chelsea’s performance this season was not too bad, we were in the final of League Cup and the UEFA Champions League. And again, we were the runners up of English Premier League this season. We should be glad with the season's performance.

Back to the highlight of the match, Manchester United opened the score with unmarked header from Chrsitiano Ronaldo. Just before the first half finished, Frank Lampard with a great strike find the net to give the score 1-1.
Second half saw Chelsea controlled most of the game. A very powerful shoot by Didier Drogba almost changed the score, but the shoot just hit the post.

During the extra-time, Lampard almost scored his second goal, but his strike again hit the post. The final 15 minutes produced little in terms of goalmouth action as the mentality of both sides reverted to ensuring that they avoided a last-gasp knockout punch.

There was enough time, however, for Drogba to get himself sent off for a petulant slap on Nemanja Vidic. It is at times like this that heroes and villains are created, and in the torrential rain of the Luzhniki Stadium would be no different. As fate would have it Ronaldo saw his penalty saved by Cech, only to be rescued when Terry struck with the post with his. Otherwise we would witness Chelsea to hold the trophy just now, which could be the memorable thing to see.

Van der Sar then ensured that it would be United who lifted the trophy when he pushed away Anelka's sudden-death effort to hand the Red Devils a 6-5 victory. Congratulation again Manchester Utd, this season you did not give us chance to win any trophy, that's okey. A very competitive battle and SEE AGAIN NEXT SEASON!

This is Lampard's comment after the match.

"Penalties are difficult and that's why players miss. Cristiano Ronaldo is probably the best player in the world at the moment and he missed. John Terry missed. Anyone can miss. That's how cruel it is. I have respect for anyone who stands up and takes a penalty in that sort of situation."

Rumours are spreading like a wild fayahhhhhh (fire)! There are reports saying that Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini might be going to Chelsea.

I personally don't think he is the right man for Chelsea and why is that? I'll tell u why.. SERIE A sucks! There is no competition there and they can't even beat AC MILAN! The style he plays makes you want to sleep but hey, thats only my opinion!

So now, referring back to my article "GOING DUTCH OR DANE?" Now i can make it, "GOING DUTCH, DANE, or ITALIAN?"


Roberto Mancini (born November 27, 1964 in Jesi, Ancona) is an Italian football coach and former player. He is currently the head coach of Internazionale in Serie A.

Club career

One of the most talented players of his age, Mancini debuted in Italian Serie A for Bologna on September 12, 1981. The following year he was bought by Sampdoria, for which he played until 1997. Later he played for Lazio (1997–2000) and Leicester City (2001).

With Sampdoria, he formed a dynamic strike partnership with Gianluca Vialli, and led the club to its only scudetto in 1991, four Coppa Italias (1985, 1988, 1989 and 1994) and a Cup Winners' Cup in 1990. He also lost the final of the 1991–1992 European Cup against Barcelona. With Lazio he won his second scudetto (2000) and Cup Winners' Cup titles (1999) as well as two more Coppa Italias (1998 and 2000).


Despite his success at club level, Mancini never became a regular for Italy. He only won 36 caps and scored four goals for his country (including a goal against West Germany at Euro 88). He was also a non playing member of the Italian squad at 1990 World Cup, being kept out of the side by the likes of Andrea Carnevale and Roberto Baggio. At U-21 level, Mancini finished runner-up in UEFA U-21 Championship 1986, and reached the semi-finals in UEFA U-21 Championship 1984. His international career came to an end after a dispute with national team coach Arrigo Sacchi when Mancini found he would not be guaranteed a first place team at USA 94.


After retiring as a player, Mancini coached Fiorentina (2001–02) and Lazio (2002–04) before moving to Inter in 2004. He won the Coppa Italia with both Fiorentina (2001) and Lazio (2004). During his tenure with Fiorentina, Mancini was occasionally willing to come out and play for the team due to the club having financial problems with its players. With Inter, he has won two Coppa Italia (2005 and 2006), two Supercoppa Italiana (2005 and 2006) and three Scudetti (2005–06, 2006–07 and 2007-08), becoming the most successful Inter coach of the last 30 years. However, Mancini failed to replicate his domestic successes with Inter at the European level, as he never managed to win the UEFA Champions League during his time as nerazzurri boss.

On March 11, 2008, Mancini announced his intention to stand down at the end of the 2007-08 season after his side were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League after a 3-0 aggregate loss to Liverpool in the round of 16. Mancini rescinded this decision on March 12 after meeting with Inter president Massimo Moratti.

There has recently being rumours that former Chelsea boss,Jose Mourinho would be taking over Inter Milan after the summer.

Everyone Can't Wait For The Big Battle

The UEFA Champions Trophy. Who will hold it this year???
All Chelsea fans are now can’t wait to see the great battle in the final UEFA Champions League with our greatest rival Manchester United, we treat them as ‘the enemy of the season’. We already disappointed last time because failed to win the title of Barclays English Premier League.

But Chelsea fans don’t be sad, there is one chance left for us again, to get at least something this season. Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow will be the witness to see which team will hold the trophy and celebrate there. Both teams can win the trophy because they were really in a great form this season. But the question is who will be the lucky one who will win it??

Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow

But, I don’t want to see the game ended up with penalty kick again. I remember the bad time during the last UEFA CL semi-final encounter with Liverpool that Chelsea failed to win it and also during Final World Cup 2006 where France lost to Italy. By the way I’m a France fans. It makes us nervous actually to watch penalty kick out to decide the champion.

Fourth encounter this season.. and this is will be the big one..

I have an instinct actually Chelsea can win the title, everyone have got their instinct right. Because I remember how the past Europeans Champions like Porto who won it in 2004, Dortmund won it in 1997 and Marseille in 1993. Why can we, Chelsea FC be the champion for the year 2008?? Chelsea FC has the capabilities and great players. The big names are all in the squad. Jose Mourinho ‘the special one’ failed to do it before for Chelsea, but our Uncle Avram has something special for us this season.

Chelsea's Captain, John Terry will be in the line up this final

This match will be the closing of all the european clubs competitions this season. This is the first all-england final. It never happened before in UEFA CL history. And this is the first time Chelsea play in the final for the competition and will be the historical moment for us. Lets hope the result of the final FA Cup 2007 and 26 April 2008 match happen again for this 21st May 2008. This is the game that we are waiting for. It will be telecast LIVE on ESPN, on 22 May 2008, at 2 am. Lets cheeeeeer up for Chelsea!!!!! Keep the blue flag rising up!!!!!!

Saturday, May 17, 2008


I for one remember that night when we defeated the MANCS. Although I didn't watch the game due to the BLACKOUT! PALUI the BLACKOUT! Yeah, 26th April 2008 when part of BSB was in the dark due to a Power breakdown.

Yes, I was really worried and without electricity there was nothing much I could do to find out what the score was. I went out to Kiulap and Gadong but it was the same. I texted my darling in Tutong and she said "Here got karan!". Thats when i decided to go to Tutong but then again my car ran out of Minyak! What a Night! Nevertheless, i asked my darling to watch the match for me and keep me up to date. My mobile phone was nearly out coz abis battery and by 10pm, my darling message me and told me that my favourite team has just scored!!! I was SOOOOOOOO Happy that the ELECTRICITY ON TARUS!! Hahaahaa...

Anyway, the game was Chelsea's in the 1st half and MICHAEL BALLACK scored in the 45th minute to give Chelsea the lead. But a mistake by Ricky Carvalho proved to be vital and the Mancs equalised through Wayne Shrek! Then 5 minutes from time, Chelsea were given a spot kick after Michael Carrick handled the ball. The penalty taker was our own Michael Ballack and he scored it and took us level on points in the PL standings.

Yes, that was the night! This is just a reminder of what's to come on the 21st May! We beat them before and we can beat them again and again and again..... Btw, here are some pictures just incase the Red Fans Forgot! haha.. Enjoy!


I can't believe i missed out writing about our new guy! How could i miss?! Yeah well, this time I'm
gonna write about Jose Bosingwa who was signed from FC PORTO RIGHT UNDER THE MANCS NOSES! HA HA HA HA HA.....

Yeah! Take that you Mancs! We bought him and you didn't!

José Bosingwa da Silva (born August 24, 1982 in Kinshasa) is a football player from Portugal currently playing for Portuguese club FC Porto but due to transfer to Chelsea FC in the English Premier League after Euro 2008 following the agreement of a £16.2m fee between the two clubs.

Born in DR Congo (to a Portuguese father and a Congolese mother), Bosingwa moved with his parents at a very young age to Seia, inner Portugal, in the Guarda district. He was picked as a youth to play in Boavista F.C., where he stayed until picked by José Mourinho in 2003-04 for his FC Porto squad,[1] where he was used sparingly (11 league games) that season. He made his UEFA Champions League debut on September 16, 2003, in a 1-1 away draw with Partizan Belgrade (playing 8 matches in the club's victorious campaign).

Fully established as a right-back (he started as a midfielder), and Porto's first-choice since 2004-05, after the departures of Paulo Ferreira and veteran Carlos Secretário, Bosingwa was a vital element in the team's conquest of four league titles in five seasons.

The season ended on a sour note as, in May 2005, Bosingwa was at the wheel of his jeep when excess speed and wet road conditions led to a serious accident, with the vehicle skidding off the motorway and rolling down an embankment before bursting into flames. Along with the Porto player, four other footballers travelled, including then-Boavista player Nélson. All escaped alive, but one of them, Sandro Luís (player of modest Grupo Desportivo Os Minhocas), had to have his left foot amputated as a result of the accident, which took place in Valongo. Bosingwa was subsequently suspended by the club.

On 11 May 2008, Porto announced that Bosingwa had come to verbal agreements with Chelsea for a €20.5million/£16.2m transfer.[2][3] He put pen to paper on a 3-year deal,[4] and joins the London club after Euro 2008.

As we all know that Frank Rijkaard is already goin out from Barcelona and now another coach who is heavily linked with Chelsea has also quit and that is Michael Laudrup of Getafe.

I'm a big fan of Michael Laudrup and i remember that he was once a SUPERB player back in the day when playing for BARCA and REAL MADRID. AND, if i am not mistaken, he had a younger brother playing for Chelsea before BRIAN LAUDRUP was his name but sadly he was a flop! Nevertheless, i'm talking about Michael Laudrup and his coaching ability. Just look at Getafe's game against Bayern Munich and how Getafe stood up to the European Giants! That night i said to myself that this guy could be the next Chelsea coach replacing uncle Avi.

So if i had to choose which guy to coach Chelsea, i will no doubt choose Michael Laudrup as Uncle Avi's successor coz i don't like Frank Rijkaard and the way he manages the team. Look what happened to Ronaldinho! In terms of rating, i give Michael Laudrup a 9/10 and Rijkaard an 8/10!

Here are some short facts about Michael:

Michael Laudrup (born 15 June 1964) is a Danish former professional football player. He is now manager of Spanish club Getafe CF. His most prominent run of football came with Spanish club FC Barcelona, with whom he won four straight La Liga championships. He famously moved to arch rivals Real Madrid in 1994, with whom he won his fifth La Liga title in a row. He scored 37 goals in a total of 104 appearances for the Denmark national football team, which is only topped by Peter Schmeichel's 129 games and Thomas Helveg's 108 games. From November 1994, he captained his country for a total of 28 matches[1] before his retirement in June 1998.

In 1999 he was voted the Best Foreign Player in Spanish Football over the previous 25-year period[2] and in April 2000 he was knighted, as he received the Order of the Dannebrog. In November 2003, to celebrate UEFA's Jubilee, he was selected as the Golden Player of Denmark by the Danish Football Association; their most outstanding player of the past 50 years.[3] He was officially named the best Danish footballer of all time by the Danish Football Association (DBU) in November 2006.[4]

After ending his playing career, Laudrup took up coaching, and became assistant manager of the Danish national team. He got his first manager job at former club Brøndby IF in 2002, whom he guided to the 2005 Danish Superliga championship. He chose not to extend his contract with Brøndby IF in May 2006. In 2007 Brøndby IF decided to name a new lounge at the stadium "The Michael Laudrup Lounge", with Laudrup's approval.


When I woke up this morning and had my breakfast while browsing the internet, I came across of Florent Malouda possibly going to Poo! Liverpoo! I was really surprised and choked on my food! First of all, I think Malouda has something in him and like the others before him, he's just having a hard time of suiting in. When he does fit in with the squad, he will be marvelous and to sell him to a rival like POo is ridiculous!!

Another transfer rumour that i read this morning was about Real Madrid and Ricardo Carvalho! Ricky has quoted that " Anything can happen after the final and some will go and some will stay, but for now, i still have a contract." That surely tells me he's on his way out! Ricky for me is the best defender in the world alongside John Terry and if we were to lose him than i have fears for the next season! What worries me is the loss of Drogba and Lampard who are heavily linked with a move away to another club! Now Now Now.... These two are like the Heart and Soul of Chelsea Attacking.. Without them, we are simply nothing! Although we have Ballack in Midfield but i just think Lampard is ESSENTIAL and ofcourse Drogba who is IRREPLACABLE.

Another news today is about Cristiano Ronaldo opening up doors for Real Madrid to sign him and all i can say is... MUDAH MUDAHANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN TAH BANAR!! I actually fear this guy coz he can do damage to any defense and defenders find it hard to follow him up coz he's lightning quick and really skillfull! D**N! this guy is good and all the awards he won this year and the which includes the PFA player of the year, PLayers PLayer of the year, Goal of the season, Top Goalscorer in a season, Rambut beminyak paling banyak of the season and so on.... SO I HOPE HE GOES to Real Madrid.
Well lets not talk about that guy, come May 21st, we will be looking at HISTORY in the MAKING! UP THE CHELS!!

Zola was here.

Chelsea’s Concern Of The Earthquake in China

Everybody at Chelsea Football Club has been shocked and saddened by the consequences of the 7.8 richter scale earthquake in China recently on 12 May 2008.

Our deepest and sincerest condolences go out to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones, and we wish those who are injured a very speedy recovery. Even from the pictures we see in England we can also appreciate the bravery of the emergency services who are doing a fantastic job in the most difficult and harrowing circumstances.

Chelsea FC has a particularly close connection to the city of Chengdu and the province of Sichuan. The city is one of the first in the Vision China grass roots football project of the Asian Football Confederation in which Chelsea is the exclusive football development partner.

We will be doing what we can to make sure this continues and help in our small way to bring the city and region back to normality.

So we see now, this is what we call the team with full of responsibility and humanity. Chelsea FC is not just concern about the progress of their team itself but also the outside world.

1 week left!

Ladies and gentleman of all ages! The young and old, are you prepared for the final in Moscow? Its only a week left and I can't wait for it!

Now, I just read about our other Ivory Coast star Salomon Kalou urging his buddy Drogba to stay with Chelsea. Other than that, he was talking about a possibility of playing alongside LIONEL MESSI!

Now this is BIG BIG BIG! :) I just wish Uncle Roman will buy Messi AND Quaresma ( they are both sponsored by ADIDAS mind you! :) )

It is reported that 7 Chelsea players will be going out namely Ben Haim to Spurs maybe, Sidwell to Everton maybe, Boulahrouz to Bundesliga maybe, Belleti ( To Valencia as part of a player exchange with David Villa), Nicolas Anelka ( To where ever he goes is not my concern! hehe), Florent Malouda ( previously reported that he is to be exchanged with Frank Ribery)Claudio Pizzaro to another Bundesliga Club. Shawn Wright Phillips to I dont know where but he is reportedly going out. AND finally the Drogman going to AC MILAN which i hope is a bait for KAKA to come in!

Boyyyyyyyy! Thats a long list of players coming out, actually its more than 7! I haven't mentioned Andriy Shevchenko who is reportedly going back to AC MILAN.

So, PLEASE UNCLE ROMAN, Make my Birthday wish come true! Hehe..
