And now there`s Three Again!

And now there`s Three Again!

Chelsea winning the Champions League isn`t what we really wanted.

Although in a way I don`t begrudge them their success, the reality is that their first Champions League success elevates them to another level.

Finishing sixth and not being in the Champions League next season would have opened the way up for ourselves and City to dominate the top end of the transfer market as was about to be proven with Eden Hazard admitting he`d be playing for a Manchester club next season, albeit the comments being spoilt with a reference to a blue shirt.

But now Chelsea`s status of not only being in the Champions League but being the holders has given them undisputable leverage when it comes to transfers. Assisted by the huge amount of revenue the win has brought them, we now discover that Eden Hazard has suddenly developed an interest in a move to London.

Suffice to say that it`s not only Spurs who looked to have been affected by a Champions League victory from a squad that our own Sir Alex Ferguson deemed as being an ageing squad!

Seriously do not want Hazard. He's a classy player but his attitude is awful. He's offering himself out non-stop (to Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, City and Ourselves) just to facilitate a move. He's not fussed where he plays or even if it's attractive football just as long as it pays his ridiculous (reported 170k a week) wage demands. Furthermore before even signing for a premier league club he was whoring himself out to Madrid and Barca in the future but for now he feels the premier league is the next step he needs to take meaning whoever he signs for is just a stop gap while he develops his game, a stepping stone on his route to the glits and glamour of Spains giants. His attitude is just one of the reasons i dont want him. Thankfully we can't and surely won't pay the fee and wage associated with him.

I hope you have been reading about Roman's targets for the future..another 4 CL wins ! Have a happy transfer window!
22/05/2012 11:52:00
Targets are all well and good Blue_mel, it's meeting them that's the real test. TBH, I think Chelse have a major rebuilding task on their hands over the next few seasons, and whilst you did incredibly well to win the CL this season, even your own fans agree that you were largely outplayed in most games, particularly against Barca and Bayern. Now I seem to remember Abramovitch getting rid of Mourinho because he demanded attractive, free-flowing attacking football - and we haven't seen too much of that from Chelsea this season! Obviously no-one can predict the future, but I'd say you may have to wait a couple of years for a new squad of players to acclimatise before lifting another trophy of any sort.

Romans targets are unrealistic and always have been, it was through pure luck that you won it this season having been outplayed for most of the competition against all of Napoli, Benfica, Barca and Bayern. Let's put it this way you won't ever again see Messi or Barcelona be so poor In front of goal (hitting the woodwork 5 times and missing a penalty), you won't see Cavani, Lavezzi and Gomez struggle to find the net like they did v you again. The simpe fact is whilst you won the Champions League (congratulations for by the way) it only masks how poor, old and boring your squad is evident through your league position. Your success and manner of playing relies so heavily on Terry, Lampard and, most importantly, Drogba and they're not getting any you get are they? AVB tried pretty football with you but you're too accustomed to the long ball to Drogba for it to ever happen, you know no other way of playing. A serious squad overhaul is needed at Chelsea and then you've got to hope they all come together as a team and develop as expected and still hope to qualify under the FFP rules. It will be a very long time before Chelsea play Abramovichs beautiful football, even longer before you win another 4 European titles. Your welcome to Hazard if you want him, not too many other clubs would be silly enough to even consider paying him his ridiculous wage demands. The fellas a mercenary (evident through him whoring himself out and trying to spark a bidding/wage war), so he'll fit right in at Chelsea... Until he hears Barca or Madrid are interested anyway.

You get? Younger* rather.
22/05/2012 13:03:00
Sour grapes , methinks ! Ive been hearing that Hazard is headed to United... I hope you tell him exactly what you have just quoted about him...and not changing your story ! I also been reading that Chelsea are in for Moura ...and are leading the race.... I also thinking and hoping that Chelsea are in for Falcao and Hulk. Im thinking that second CL trophy isnt far off , especially since the FInal will be held at Wembley again - in effect OUR home ground
22/05/2012 17:38:00
Hulk? SERIOUSLY? Now Falcao is a truly awesome player, and if you got him that would be a real coup. But forgive me if I put my hand over my mouth to supress the laughter - I saw Hulk in person this season and he is surely the most overrated player in the world at the moment!
22/05/2012 18:17:00
TBH Blue_Mel, a lot of City and Chelsea fans are saying the same things as Famoyus - the guy is class, and will potentially go on to become a superstar, but he really isn't doing himself any favours with his behaviour - he really doesn't seem to care where he goes, as long as the money is right. Of course, as with all things football related, the fans of the club that sign him will be extremely forgiving if he starts doing the business for them - myself and famous included!
22/05/2012 19:37:00
Trust me Blue_Mel I will be saying the something and even if he does the business I would still expect him to leave in just 2-3 seasons for Spain. Think fcb is right about Hulk, whenever his played decent opposition outside Portugal his disappered everytime. Who knows he might end up being sensational and proving us wrong but I can only go on what I've seen. Lucas Moura looks like a sensational player from the very little I've seen but, like with all players I suppose, there's that massive jump from the time, space and quality of defence is Brazilian sides and the Premier League sides. Falcao no argument is a great player, would cost a fortune though. Personally I would prefer us to go for Kagawa rather than all these extortionately priced players.

0 many of your players are there for the money ?
