Seasonal Preview

The 2012/13 English Premier League season is set to kick off this weekend, many will be expecting to see Drama in the opening fixtures as We will play away against Wigan Athletics on Sunday. And here is a preview on some of the hottest talking points towards this new season togetther with some of International football Experts/Journalists.

Its a season where we will have to defend our UEFA Champions League title, and also the FA Cup as we also eye to win other Silverwares, something which has never been easy for any club as far as European football is concerned. Chelsea will play in six different tournaments, and over 60 games.

The Squad and the Transfer Activity

The transfer activity so far has been impressive, bringing new and young talents to the squad – transforming the squad from an aged to a youthful side, adding more pace and creativity.

Eden Hazard, Oscar, Marko Marin are the big names to have been signed so far and many others rumored and may arrive soon with the likes of Hulk, Neymar, Azpilicueta, Edinson Cavani, Victor Mosses to mention a few.

Creativity needs such attacking players, and with a creative squad more goals will be produced, and we will be able to win games.

When it comes to new signings for Chelsea, Eden Hazard comes first. Young, creative, he has got the speed and the technical ability. He is a player who is expected to make a difference in the team, and help the team to reach its goals. Having scored 20 goals and 15 assists in 35 starts appearances for Lille last season in the French Ligue 1 and his performances have been improving now and then.

Fernando Torres
Torres had a very difficult beginning with Chelsea, after his lost his form. But now he has been very impressive scoring braces, crucial goals and even a hat-trick. According to the statistics, there is a huge improvement on his performances compared to the first season when he was under intense pressure from the fans and media, but now we are talking of a confident Fernando Torres whose formed has been brilliant from last season to the Euro 2012 for Spain, and this season he is the man to look after to produces more goals and win games for Chelsea.

John Chapman (Belgian Football Journalist – www.belgofoot.be) gave his thoughts on Eden Hazard’s move and future at Chelsea.

John Chapman: I think Eden Hazard has great potential. He’s quick, clever and explosive. He can make and take goals and should succeed at the very highest level. He’ll probably develop into a central midfield playmaker but may have to play on the wing initially; and fans will need to be patient as it does take time to settle in the Premier League.

And also John Chapman shared his views on Chelsea’s Belgians youngsters Thribaut Courtois, Romelu Lukaku, and Kevin De Bruyne.

John Chapman: Courtois has great skill that he has shown in a very short career at Genk (champions) and Atletico Madrid (Europa League winners). He’s maturing rapidly, on and off the field, and has the ability to be a top five (in the world) keeper within the next 3-5 years.

With Romelu Lukaku, I have doubts. He lacks the technical ability to
reach the top; his main strength is his strength (very powerful) and that’s
not enough at the very top.

Kevin De Bruyne is another player with a lot of potential. I think the
move to the Bundesliga will be great for him. Like Hazard, he’s spent most
of his career on the wing but he should develop into a central playmaker. I saw him in that role for Genk vs. Anderlecht and he was excellent: good vision, passing ability, speed, enthusiasm.

ESPN Football Analyst and Commentator Janusz Michallik and Daily Telegraph’s Correspondent Henry Winter gave their views on some talking points.

Is there a realistic chance of winning the league or Six trophies?

Janusz Michallik: Winning 6 trophies is an impossible task even for Barca. They did it once but these things don’t happen too often. I would say that Chelsea will have a shot but they still need to add players in key areas.

Henry Winter: Manchester City and Manchester United are too powerful so I can’t see Chelsea winning the league. They may win the Super Cup or the Fifa gong in
Tokyo but it’s not going to be like last season’s successes.

Is there a need for another Striker?

Janusz Michallik: I would say that Chelsea need at least two quality strikers. Losing Drogba does not only mean goals and the fear factor but a target man that can hold the ball with back to the goal and bring others into the game. That is especially important with the technical player like Mata, Marin, Hazard, Oscar. Torres does not offer that. The question of a quality right back is obvious. Need a player that understands the position and will provide pace and width to otherwise very narrow Chelsea team.

What other areas do you think Chelsea need to Strengthen at the moment?

Henry Winter: They need another Makelele, somebody to anchor midfield. They need a right-back as Ivanovic has become slightly indisciplined. They need another centre-forward to ease load on Torres.

Thoughts on Chelsea’s current Squad depth, Creativity and strengths?

Janusz Michallik: We knew that Chelsea needed to get younger and more creative. I think they have addressed these issues very quickly but as we said still have some work to do. Overall very impressive so far.

Henry Winter: Creativity obvious with Oscar, Mata and Hazard. Oscar will need time to get used to pace and pressing of English football. Torres looks in the mood.

Henry’s Chelsea XI: (4-2-3-1) I’d have Ramires deep as not going to get in ahead of new stars and more reliable than Mikel.

Munich 2012

Munich 2012

Is RDM the right man?

Is Di Matteo the Right Man?

After sacking of Portuguese Andre Villa-Boas as the Chelsea manager, interim coach Roberto Di Matteo has brought that lost belief back to the hearts of the blues.

 

Since his take over, Roberto Di Matteo has managed 6 wins, 1 defeat and 1 draw in 8 games in all competitions. Having a 75 winning percentage, taking us UEFA Champions League quarter-finals and one step close to the Semis, also in FA Cup Semi-final at Wembley. All this has just been a great achievement to what has proved to be a disappointing season so far for Chelsea.

 

Di Matteo’s tactics;

Squad Rotation Tactic
Now they call him “The Rotatovator” due to the tactic he uses of rotating players, so far the tactic has proved to be working and bringing good results. The importance of this tactic is that it helps to keep each player on form hence it improves team performances week in and week out.

 

Di Matteo says: “I just talk to the players, give them my opinions and explain the reasons behind my team selections”

 

Maybe the reason for AvB’s failure at Chelsea was that, when he tries to give out his opinions and explanations – the elder players don’t even listen to him due to the fact of Age difference, no one knows exactly.

 

Players Torres, Kalou and Mikel, are now on-form players and most important players in the team, playing week in and week out.

 

Fernando Torres – I say he is back, the El Nino is back!!! 3 goals and 4 assists in the last 5 games. He has now developed the belief and he more of a confident player, his perfomances get higher and higher each week. With such a form, we expect goals to rain from our big man.

 

Di Matteo on Torres: “I have always said it does not matter who scores, and Fernando has been providing goals for his team-mates, its great that he is scoring as well”

 

He is likely to be in Spain’s squad for Euro 2012 tournament and as Spain coach Del Bosque said: “If Fernando improves his form, I will select him for the Euros”.

 

Kalou and Mikel among the players whose futures at chelsea have been a concern, still they have been improving on daily basis. They have both find their places in the first team playing match to match, included in overall Chelsea’s top performers so far.

 

Kalou is out of contract at the moment, the rumors say “Kalou wants to play in the central role, or else he will be forced not to renew his current contract”.


The central role is occupied by on form Fernando Torres and Didier Drogba, in order for Kalou to get his place on the team and keep on his brilliant form, he has to hang on as Wing forward to secure his place in the first team. Ac Milan and Galatasaray reportedly to be linked with Kalou, who could be available on a free-transfer in the summer.

 

Mikel has completed 833 of 910 attempted passes (91.54%), his best at the club. He lost his place in the first team but now he is enjoying playing match to match, Mikel has been a solid player in our midfield and his presence makes it more stable. Rumored to join russian side Anzhi managed by Guus Hiddink (Former Chelsea Coach), but at the moment he is not going anywhere.

 

Back to the question, Is Roberto Di Matteo the right man?
1. Coach to Player Relations.
A good coach is the one who has good relationship with his players, the one who speaks and his players listen a respond positively.

 

2. Manager tactics.
His tactics are working at the moment, rotating the players and keeping them in firing form. And bringing good results.

 

3. Objectives.
His objective is to put the team in a Champions league qualification position, currently seems difficult. But as we continue to win our games, it will be secured. On the other hand, he is in a position to lead the team in Fa cup and Champions league glory. Something that may look impossible, but all he needs is to give the team maximum belief and every thing will be possible.

 

Have a productive day and always be carefree.

Chelsea January Transfer Window Analysis

January! January! January! The month we have been waiting for, when transfer window opens and the rumors rise till they get ridiculous.

It is believed that Roman will give Villas-Boas a war-chest of £150m to spend in this January transfer window. If that’s true, AVB should seize the opportunity to sign quality players that will enable our squad challenge and hopefully win some trophies.

If AVB signs some quality players, I believe we can even win the premier league this season. It may seem impossible but there is still half a season of games to play. As AVB said: “In this season’s title race, there will be a lot of surprises”.

It’s up to our players to surprise everyone including themselves. I believe they are capable because these are the same players who got us from 7th to 2nd place in the league last season. We could have even won the premier league if we got a result at Old Trafford. It is mathematically possible for us to still win the league so we must keep the faith.

Let’s take a look on our current squad, this is the same squad that won at Valencia, Man City, Newcastle and other places. Also it is the same Squad that lost to QPR, Aston Villa, Leverkusen – to mention but a few. If we compare the depth of squad that Man city have, it is bigger than that of Chelsea. To improve our current squad we need to bring 3-4 new players in this transfer window which will help us for the rest of the season.

Here is an analysis of some of the transfer options or possible players to join Chelsea:

Gary Cahill: At 26, his age is not a concern; his performances are the most important. Cheap to be honest, not many defenders will be available at £7m. He’s demanding around £120k wage in wages. Signing for Chelsea will keep alive his chances to play in Euros for England.

According to the reports, Owen Coyle says his move to Chelsea will be completed by Sunday. And he rates him as good defender, who can play for any team.

He has made 19 Premier League appearances this season for Bolton scoring 2 goals, with no assists, 2 yellow cards, 1 red card, 74 percent passing success and 0.6 shots per game.  A bit average of him, but I won’t judge him much before he plays for Chelsea. He plays in the centre back role which is occupied by John Terry, David Luiz and Ivanovic.

He is weak at passing, but strong in blocking the ball and playing it into air, strong in aerial duels, clearing the ball out of defence, scores in set pieces especially indirect free-kicks.

Edinson Cavani: He is a Uruguayan forward, 24, of pace that resembles that of Diego Forlan. He has made 13 appearances (1 as a sub) for Napoli in the Serie A scoring a total of 9 goals with one assist and one yellow card in the other hand, 3.4 shots per goal and 68 percent passing success.

A player that his price could be a bit high £45m – £50m, but that wont be a problem for Chelsea. His attributes – Strong in finishing , headed attempts, holding on the ball and also he provides defensive contribution.

A player that will fit in Chelsea’s squad and tactics, and will close the gap to Drogba & Kalou who will depart for Afcon tournaments. He is very useful in counter attacks and also in normal build ups. A kind of player that Chelsea need.
Gonzalo Higuain: He is 24, 7 apps (8 as a sub) for Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga, scoring 12 goals with no assists, 2 shots per game and 88 percent passing success. He has an impressive scoring record since arriving in Spain in 2006 but he has failed to hold down a regular starting role under Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

His price tag is around £25m – £30m, a good finisher and a key passer, Good dribbler with skills and long shooter. He can boost the attacking role at Chelsea and score some handy goals along side others. Not only Chelsea are after him but also the Argentine forward is linked with Juventus and PSG.

Marek Hamsik: 24 years old Attacking midfielder and he can play as a right forward in a 4-3-3 formation, his price could be a problem, rated at £45m – £50m. After Chelsea failed to capture Luka Modric – he grew up as a possible target for Chelsea. He has made 11 apps (5 as a sub)  for Napoli in the Italian Serie A scoring 5 goals and providing 4 assists, 1.4 shots per game and 84 percent passing success. He is good in releasing key passes, assisting and finishing too.

He can help to feed the strikers with balls, and adding creativity in our midfield  alongside Mata, Romeu, Lamapard, Meireles, Ramires and others. He is in a class of players that can add creativity at Chelsea and boost our attacking forces.

Alvaro Pereira: He is a defender (left) of 26 years old, he has made a total of 10 apps for FC Porto this season in the Liga Sagres, he will provide aid in our defence also in creating attacking build ups – bringing crosses and good runs through opponent’s defence. He has a release clause of £25m.


Cheich Tiote: A 25 year old Ivorian midfielder who has been pretty in good form recently, capable of controlling the midfield defensively and also in attack. 83 percent passing success. Strong in passing, dribbling, tackling and ball intercepting. Good option for Chelsea, but he may find a difficult way to get regular chances of playing at Chelsea since we have a lot of midfielders. He may coast £30m, as Mr. Alan Pardew is in charge of the magpies.


Milos Krasic: He is a 27 year old winger who joined Italian side Juventus from CSKA Moscow, linked with Chelsea also with other Russian clubs but he doesnt want to return to Russia. He may cost around £20m – £25m.  He has 85 percent passing success, Strong in dribbling, holding the ball and providing key passes. He can help Chelsea and cover the wing role.


Kaka: He is one of the intelligent playmakers in football and 29 years old. He has made 6 apps (6 as a sub) for Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga  scoring 3 goals and providing 2 assists having 86 percent passing success. He has quite been faced with injuries, making him out and in some poor forms but still a player that Chelsea will need to buy to add more creativity. £30m was a rumored price that Real madrid will sell him.

He is good at scoring, shooting, dribbling and providing key passes also his has a good vision on the pitch and good mentality.


Chelsea need new blood that will make us play top class football like the season we won the historic  domestic double, with some quality signings, we can only get better, compete for and win title(s).

Keep the faith wherever you read this from!

UP THE CHELS!!!

Chelsea Need new Blood

We need more strength and depth in the squad to challenge in the Premier League title race. This season our squad has been too inconsistent, we earned draws where we should have won and lost games that could have been draws.

Currently we are out the Top 3 and 11 points below the League leaders Manchester city and Manchester united each with 45 points. Luckily, Arsenal failed to take advantage of us dropping points so they remain in 5th place. The miserable thing about our current situation is that Spurs are right above us in third place with a game in hand.

Our season has been poor so far due to goal scoring ducks, controversial refereeing, defensive errors, injuries and off-form runs. It is a miracle that we are in 4th place. Our season has poor and it can get worse if we do not strengthen our squad. We need to first fix our leaky defense and then focus on sharpening our attack. I hope AVB takes advantage of Alex and Anelka’s exit to bring in a quality centre half and a creative midfielder.

In an ideal world, Malouda and Drogba would join Alex and Anelka out of the club this January. Seydou Doumbia would replace Drogba, Hazard would replace Malouda, Hummels would replace Alex and Thiago Alcantara (through a Romeu type deal) would replace Anelka. Unfortunately, we do not live in an ideal world. Most of the best players in the football do not move to new clubs in January. Given the intensity of the rumors, expect Cahill replacing Alex as a Chelsea player by Sunday. We will not buy another striker to replace Anelka; AVB will argue that he has enough strikers i.e. Kalou, Lukaku, Torres, Drogba and Sturridge. Despite Malouda’s threats to leave, I expect him to stay and enjoy his paycheck unless PSG are silly enough to sign him. Close your mind to players like Thiago Alcantara, Mario Goetze, Khedira, Sneijder, Kaka et cetera. Chelsea will not move for them because Essien’s return will strengthen the team.

AVB has to be brave this transfer window because Chelsea finishing top four partly depends on the players that join this January. I see parts of AVB vision already and I like it; if AVB can get quality players who can clearly depict his vision in January, he should not wait until July 2012 because it could be late.

Match Preview: Wigan v Chelsea

Hello Blues,

Today, our Blue Army is in Manchester to face relegation candidates Wigan. Over the years, Wigan has become one of the teams Blues look forward to meeting. They are the gift that keeps on giving. If we had a home away from home, it has to be the DW Stadium. I expect our Blue Army to cruise to a victory there.

A win against Wigan will put Chelsea in four successive Premier league victories, since the defeat to Liverpool in the league. We also hope to extend the streak further till january and so, our next fixtures could be handled well. Coming to the new year, we will find Chelsea in unbeaten run in december and that could also take Chelsea another Step on top of the Premier League. We have also won eight of nine Premier League games in which we have opened scoring.

As we close the gap on the league leaders, this weekend we may see new leaders on the standings, at that could be Manchester utd but it will happen only if Arsenal beat Manchester City on Sunday. And that will put us just 5 points behind the New leaders.

Raul Meireles score his first Premier league goal against Manchester City on Monday, while his last Premier League goal was against Wigan before his move to Chelsea.

In the last six away meets at Wigan, Chelsea have received only one defeat and winning five games – scoring 13 goals and conceding 3 goals.

My Chelsea Team (4-3-3): Cech, Ashley Cole, John Terry, David Luiz, Ivanovic; Mikel, Ramires, Lampard; Mata, Torres, Sturridge

Wigan Team (Probable 4-5-1): Al Habsi; Gohouri, Caldwell, Boyce, Figueroa; McCarthy, Gomez, Moses, Diame, Jones; Sammon

Good News:
We face Napoli in the next Champions League round; the first leg will be in Naples and the second leg in London. If you are not happy with us drawing Napoli, note that Ballack’s Leverkusen got Barcelona. Michael Essien has been dropped from the Ghana squad for the African Cup of Nations. Hurray! Essien will join Mikel on the available list this January. Mikel’s Nigeria failed to qualify for the competition.

Should AVB try a 4-5-1 formation in January? If AvB decides to use the 4-5-1 formation, it will help Chelsea to dominate possession in its games. If our opponents don’t have the ball they can’t hurt us. We have won all six Premier League matches in which Oriol Romeu has played a part. This boy is a master mind!, and we are all glad that Villas-Boas clarified on the buy-back clause. He is a bright future for the Club. Finally, one of my favorite geezers David Luiz confirmed via twitter that he has passed his English test.

Chelsea Need More Goals

Let us recall back to 2009-10 season, the historical season for Chelsea football club and in English football – the season in which saw Chelsea winning the domestic double. It doesn’t seem an easy task to reach to such achievements against all rivals we know about from the English football, with the likes of Man utd, Arsenal and Man city to mention some. But Chelsea got the achievement not only they were the better side than others but also Chelsea scored many goals.

Scoring many goals comes from this equation; “Score goals, you win games, if you win games then you win titles”. And the inverse of this equation results to Relegation or under performing “Don’t score goals, you won’t win games, if you don’t win games then you will end up relegating or under performing”

Coming back to this new season (2011-12), the season that has proven to be the toughest ever since there have been a lot of tough underdogs and big team have been getting a lot of surprising results, such as Man utd beaten 6-1 by Man city, Chelsea beaten 5-3 by Arsenal, Tottenham beaten 5-1 by Man city and also Arsenal lost 8-2 to Man utd. All of these results surprised the whole footballing world, since it was top rated teams losing to such extents.

Having Andres Villas-boas as the big man in charge of Chelsea, so far Chelsea haven’t had the best start to the Season and have been losing a lot points in the journey while scoring at minimum. But Villas-Boas has always insisted that he will motivate the team to gain confidence and belief which will help the team to get the results, we have seen the effect of having maximum confidence and belief, it has help Chelsea to qualify to knock-out stages in the Champions League and back to back wins in the Premier League by beating Wolves, Newcastle and league leaders Man city.

For the past seasons, Chelsea’s midfield has been a source or good results and titles, where we have seen players Like Frank Lampard scoring 20 goals a season, Malouda getting 15 goals. The sum of goals scored by Chelsea’s midfield, defence and attack have played a vital role to Success of the club. But these players who have been on target aren’t getting any younger – the pace has been going down now and then, we have all seen what has happened to Drogba, Lampard, Anelka and others who have been faced with off-form states.

A lot of blames have end up facing the manager, that he is not good enough, too young to manage an aged Chelsea club, he has tactics which don’t fit with the players and many of them.

When it gets to a club like Chelsea which has a lot of ambitions, it gets very difficult to manage the club if the players fail to score (Torres to be a good example), if players fail to score all the title ambitions start to fly-off.

SOLUTION:
If Chelsea’s attacking side that includes Torres, Drogba, Lukaku, Sturridge, Mata produce at least 50 goals in their names, while the midfield and defence produce at most 40/50 goals in their names, then that will put Chelsea in a position to win the Premier league and other tournaments, since they will be scoring goals.

Players like Torres, Drogba, Lampard, Kalou, Malouda should be motivated so as to recapture their top forms once again and put them in a good shape, but if that will be a difficult thing to make the players regain their forms, then it will need Andres Villas-Boas to visit the market and bring at least three new players in the January Transfer Window.

Talking about three new players, I mean players who won’t take even more than 1 match or debut to score goal (s) for Chelsea, there are players in the market of Such quality – if they are brought they will help to produce more goals for the Club. For example, Juan Mata who didn’t take long to hit the net and he has been a master mind for Chelsea so far. If Chelsea bring two or three players of such quality, then goal scoring won’t be a problem.

For Chelsea to win title (s) this season, they need to score goals just like in 2009-10 when Chelsea passed the 100 goals mark per season, and this will be possible if they win matches by large margins, and winning matches by large margins needs top on-form players to hit the back of the opponents net.
