Sir Alex on Chelsea

Sir Alex on Chelsea

Although Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed that his target for the coming season is to wrestle the Premier League title back from our noisy-neighbours, he is perfectly aware that there are other dangers.

With the new season approaching, Sir Alex expects one of our adversaries to mount more of a sustained challenge this season, commenting about our main London rivals,

"Chelsea`s owners have got their enthusiasm back after winning the Champions League, there`s more expectation on them now."

"That was the trophy Roman Abramovich always wanted, so he`s invested in the team again this summer."

"It`s a challenge for us, and we always respect Chelsea. You just have to wait and see how good these players are."


Will Chelsea push us all the way or is the London club destined to fall by the wayside under the tutorship of Roberto Di Matteo?

Well you can never rule Chelsea out and they're signing the players to add youth to their squad again and quality to challenge again. Still lacking true wide players and seem to be interested in signing players who start out wide then come inside. They've lost their biggest and best player in Drogba and will struggle for goals when it matters without him. Personally think their Achilles heel is there manager though, from what I understand his league form last season was worse than his predecessors AVB who got fired for it. Can't help but think he flattered to decieve with his champions league win watch came from stoke city like football and a load of luck, nothing really to suggest they were worthy winners skill wise.
