This morning Carlo Ancelotti and Chelsea have been dealt a massive blow with the news that Branislav Ivanovic is out for a month with damaged medial ligaments suffered in the game against Blackburn on Sunday. With Ashley Cole & Jose Bosingwa already out long term and Juliano Belletti suffering from a knock its bad news for Chelsea. Paolo Ferreria will now have a chance to play in his usual position until the end of the season, with Zhirkov down the left.

Congratulations to the Chelsea Youth Team who have made it through to the FA Youth Cup Final for the second time in three seasons after thumping Blackburn 4-0 and 5-0 on Aggregate. The boys look as though they are showing the first team how its done. They will play the winners of the Aston Villa v Newcastle Semi Final.

Joe Cole has said that he is awaiting an offer from Chelsea of a new contract but hopes to remain at the club. He said:

"I've never spoken publicly about contracts before, I don't think contracts should really be discussed mid-season. I have always signed mine in the summer in the past. But this time it's different. We can't seem to find common ground and it's distracting. At the moment there is no offer on the table, so I know where I stand. I still hope to talk in the summer. There are no niggles. Of course, I am not match fit, but how can I be when I don't play? I want to be part of the Chelsea team to win the Premier League and the FA Cup. But I need an opportunity to start games back to back. I know I can help my team achieve our dream this season if given a chance. I am not giving up on this Chelsea team. I am not giving up on England and the World Cup either. I need to be playing consistently well for Chelsea before I can hope to be part of the World Cup squad.

I just want to play football for Chelsea."

Joe has a point you know as I have mentioned on the site that he needs to play to provide us width that we haven't got at the moment. Carlo play him now sooner rather than later!
