Chelsea Ashley Cole staying PUT!

Okie you Real Maderid fans… Enough… Stop it, will ya? The BEST left back in the world will not dump the spotlights of London for the dimmer ones in Madrid and if that is still not enough to convince you people, well… let Mr. Carlo came out and straight things out, ok?

According to a very reliable source, Cole, who has been strongly linked with a move to the Bernebeu, with the player reportedly unhappy with the tabloid intrusion into his life in England. However, Ancelotti has now said he is “100%” certain that Cole will be staying at Stamford Bridge.

“I didn’t speak with him,” he said. “I don’t need to speak with him and he doesn’t need to speak to me. He is a player of Chelsea, did a fantastic season for us and will be an important player for us next season – 100%.”

Next destination: Stamford Bridge?

Well… that’s enough said… so go away and do your shopping elsewhere… Chelsea FC will definitely not be selling our best center back whose overlapping runs last season would make Dunga wished in his dream that Cole should be Brazilian! LoL… Dream on Maurinho…

Meanwhile, Chelsea are contemplating a £25 million bid for Brazilian starlet Neymar (pic), a deal that would see the highly-rated striker become the most expensive teenager in world football.

Neymar, 18, has impressed at Santos over the past 12 months, and his performances led to widespread calls for Dunga to call him up to Brazil’s World Cup squad. Neymar has been turning heads with his speed and close ball control and recently was hailed as the ‘New Pele’ who could take the world football by storm.

I am sure that Chelsea fans worldwide will welcome the confirmation of the purchase of Neymar with great delight as this will only show that the club is going the right direction into making Chelsea FC a real force to be reckoned in world football. While I believe that the EUFA Champions League crown will only be a matter of time, I am pretty confident that Chelsea FC will one day be hailed as one of the most successful team in English football!

£55 million man – Fernando Torres?

BLUE ALERT Breaking News!

Benayoun... Wait for me... I'm Coming!

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has flown to South Africa to try to complete the signing of Fernando Torres and sources have estimated that the super-rich Russian owner of the Blues are willing to go as HIGH as 55-million Pound to get his man. Roman Abramovich believes that Torres holds the key for Chelsea to attain to their ‘Holy Grail’ that is being crowned the European Champions in coming years.

Liverpool are believed to value Torres at around £70 million and refused to respond to speculation over his future until they had a new manager in place. Now Roy Hodgson has succeeded Rafa Benitez, he is evaluating the situation regarding five big-name stars at Anfield who are reviewing their own futures.

Torres has made it clear that he is focusing on the World Cup, but with the tournament drawing to a close, talks between all the interested parties are believed to be underway.

A well-placed source told the WIZ : “Abramovich has authorised the bid of £50 million, and he’s not expected to go much higher than that … [but] I would think he might go to £55 million.

“Without any other creditable bidder, he sees no reason to go any higher. It’s quite clear that Liverpool could get more from Manchester City, and the player could earn more from Manchester City, but the player doesn’t want to go there. He wants Champions League football and the chance to win the major honours which he can do at Chelsea.

Indeed it is very TRUE! You can only have the chance to win major honours with Chelsea FC! Come on Fernando, even a little kid of 3 years old will know that Liverpool is hopeless and a lost cause. Just look at their Finances and the numbers will tell you that not only world-class stars will not be joining the team, they are constantly on a look-out to sell their best – starting with you! 🙂

They could not even attract big name managers as it was evident for everyone to see in their current recruitment of Roy Hodgson from Fulham. Poor poor Liverpool… their new American owners came in and whack havoc with their stupid management and here you are, 7th place in the league. We should give Benitez the credit of finishing a respectable 7th place when taking into considerations all the off-the-field havoc the Liverpool board was causing…

Now I am really anticipating the arrival of El Nino to Stamford Bridge this season with great excitement and I can foresee another Chelsea dominance on the English Premier League! The Lion roarsssssss and let the ‘devil’ be afraid! Hahaha… Chelsea Chelsea is our NAME!

Chelsea Signs Yossi Benayoun to trigger Anfield Exodus?

Chelsea FC has confirmed that they have signed the Reds’ midfielder Yossi Benayoun for 3 years in a fee believed to be in the region of £5Million. The rumour mill has been running quite awhile on reports that Benayoun will eventually ends up in Stamford Bridge and at las, it was confirmed not long ago that this is TRUE!

Terry: Welcome to Stamford Bridge!

According to Soccernet.com, “I am very excited to come to a club like Chelsea, it is a big club and I think it is a dream for every player. Hopefully we will be successful,” Benayoun said on the club’s official website.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti added: “We are happy to have this new player. Yossi has a lot of quality in midfield and can play in lots of positions. I like his behaviour on the pitch and he will do a great job for us next season.”

While the Kops faithfuls will disregard this as JUST another transfer where players traded clubs to ensure a bigger pay pocket. However, the exit of Benayoun from Anfield has triggered a bigger rumour mill that their biggest stars such as Torres and Gerrard will ALSO be leaving! If Anfield is to suffer such a great exodus of good players, there will be a very high possibility that the Reds might implode into a minor force come next season. New manager Roy Hodgson will find it very difficult to rebuilt a squad challenging for honours next season when there is virtually NO money to spend and the good ones have left.

Sources close to Anfield insiders have revealed that it is going to be hard for the new manager to keep these players. Hodgson plans talks with Gerrard, Torres and Mascherano but all three are now likely to leave Anfield,

“There is now a good chance Torres will come to Chelsea, and Gerrard is going to find it hard to resist going to Real Madrid to join up with Jose Mourinho. I cannot see them staying.”

Watch It guys – Gus Hiddink

After witnessing his team came from behind to beat hapless Watford, Chelsea FC new manager Gus Hiddink issued a veil warning thru his assistant Ray Wilkins that the Premiership big boys better watch out for a New Chelsea that will re-mount their serious challenge on 3 trophies which they are still in the race of.

Peter Kenyon, Guus Hiddink, Roman Abramovich

Known as the ‘magican’ to many of his fans, Gus Hiddink has had a cult following since his miracle of transforming national sides such as South Korea to reach the World Cup’s semis in 2002 as well as architecturing the defeat of the ‘Orange’ Holland recently in Euro 2008. Van Basten’s Holland was on a rampaging mood after depatching former world champions France and Italy respectively with big margins and yet, found their own Archilles Hill when they met the Russians in the last 8.

Enjoying a ‘special’ relationship with Chelsea owner, the billionaire Abramovich, Gus Hiddink might after all stay on as the manager of Chelsea beyond this summer IF he is able to bring back the Premiership or better still, the Champions League trophy to Stamford Bridge. That would definately please the Chelsea owner very much!

Gus Hiddink have done lots of wonders and miracles in today’s footballing world and it’s time for him to perform such feat with Chelsea – a team who has been underperforming for the past 2 seasons due to instability on and off the pitch.

Lately, Saturday night has been quite boring for me. My usual habit of watching EPL is no longer there as Chelsea kept on producing disappointing play that will only make my Blue blood boils and blood pressure increased. Hopefully, Mr. Hiddink could bring back the good ol’days where the winning mentality coupled by attractive play will, once again, make my Saturday night fill with great excitements!

Watford 1 – 3 Chelsea : Young Blue Lions roar

chelseafcYesterday, Chelsea was staring STRAIGHT at the face of defeat before they were rescued by their own HATTRICK hero in Nicolas Anelka who scored 3 times in the last 15 minutes of the FA Cup match with Watford the Bees.

New interim manager – Gus Hiddink was on the stand to watch the match and I’d say this is one of the first time when Chelsea really ‘click’ when they play with 2 forwards in Anelka and Drogba. Maybe Mr. Hiddink really got the ingrediant for these 2 world class strikers to play together and here we are, giving Watford FC their footballing lessons where it’s due.

Nicolas Anelka
Anelka begins his three goal salvo at Watford….
 
There is another point in the match which I am proud of is the inclusion of young Chelsea lions in the squad of the match. We got Michael Ma5877240ncienne on the right back – putting more familiar stars such as Bosingwa and Paulo Feriera on the bench. Michael is a up and rising star in Chelsea rank and his talent was so apparent as recently he earned a call to the England senior squad by Fabio Capello.
Another rising star in Chelsea young lion is Miroslav Stoch (pic) where only at 19, was given the role to sub a Big Star such as Michael Ballack at 80th minute. So those to critics out there, don’t accuse Chelsea of only buying established stars while did not put any effort to build our own young players. Such inclusions of young Blue Lions would only pave ways for more to come forward and fight for a place in the first XI team.
One of the first few words by the new manager Gus Hiddink is “Our season is not YET finished” and I realli hope Hiddink will be able to revive the sleeping lions to capture the Premier League as well as the Champions League. If we can put the FA Cup in the pocket as well, hmmmm…. won’t it be icing on the cake then? 🙂
