The Ghost of Rosenberg being talked of. No chance as our season starts here!

I remember being at the Bridge on that cold September night being a goal down to lowly Rosenberg in the Champions League in 2007. On that night, Andriy Shevchenko scored (yes scored) for Chelsea for the game to finish in a draw and it was disappointing to say the least.

Little did anyone expect the major announcement that shocked football the day after - Jose Mourinho had left Chelsea. The shock waves were still being felt for weeks and months afterwards.

So to tonight and Maccabi Tel Aviv - almost eight years to the day into the future and people are already speculating of what another poor performance and result could mean again for Jose Mourinho. Some state that a poor result could mean deja-vu or would increase the pressure on the boss ahead of Arsenal. God only knows what could happen if another bad result followed then!

However, I like to think and feel that things this time around are very different. Chelsea are the defending Premier League Champions and do not become a bad team overnight. In 2007, we had won a cup double but missed out on Premier League success.

This time around, virtually every single player in our starting eleven has been below par, off the pace and under performing - you cannot blame the manager for that.

This time around, every little mistake Chelsea have made has been punished whereas last season we had that slice of luck at times that you need to be successful. This time around, Chelsea have far more options to call upon to help change our fortunes.

None of us could have predicted where we find ourselves in the Premier League right now and talk of defending our title is long gone. It's not impossible and you know that until it's mathematically impossible, Chelsea will continue to take each game as it comes to try and win three points every week.

This time around Jose Mourinho is a wiser, more experienced Manager and knows what it takes to win the big games, to win trophies and despite a disappointing start with losing to Manchester City, I still back the man to take us back towards the top of league and to get us firing again.

Everyone at the club has a responsibility to do their jobs. From the Owner, the Board, the Manager and the Players, we have put ourselves in this position and now must work even harder to get out of it.

This time around, Roman Abramovich backs his man. This time around there WILL NOT be another Rosenberg.
