I think it's safe to say, and Cech himself would hold his hands up and admit since the awful injury he suffered a few years back at Reading it has taken him a long while to recapture the form he showed in the early days at Chelsea.

For anyone to come through a life changing injury like that and try and get back to the person you used to be must have been hard and would be hard for anyone. We all know Cech has had to wear his protective head gear ever since. To suffer another blow to the same part of his head isn't worth thinking about so to make the decision back then to get back between the posts was huge at the time for Petr and he deserves credit for making that decision. This has always been underestimated in my view.

As a result Cech came back and did ok but never to the point where he or at times our back four looked comfortable and had full faith in him. For example coming to get crosses high in the took Cech time to establish his confidence once more. Then we had seen Cech begin to look like he was getting back to his best but threw in a few mistakes into his game and it looked at one stage to me anyway that he would never bring the old Petr back.

I have to say this season (apart from West Ham) Cech looks like he has had a new lease of life. He has been a major part in Chelsea's success this season and defensive record. Chelsea have conceded just two goal this season, away at City and at West Ham and it's fantastic. Now and especially at Stamford Bridge, Cech looks like a man who is on his game and ready to stand firm between the posts. You often hear him bellowing to the back four throughout the game. Its the little things like that that go to show you that he feel right within himself and is determined to show everyone he is back to being the player of old.

I have posted earlier today about our defensive wall and they deserve their own credit of course but to have a World Class goalkeeper in your side who can get you three points in a good few games in the season, is what Chelsea have.

I can say now that the old Petr Cech is back, playing well, confident and making the kinds of saves in games that took us to back to back titles in 2004/5 & 2005/6.

I wonder if lightening is about to strike twice!?

  1. He is back to his formidable best, but I don't think he was much at fault on the goal against West Ham. Parker wouldn't score from there if you gave him another 100 crosses to volley over Cech. However, he had a big blooper against Zilina that you obviously have forgotten about, but other than that, just simply brilliant.

  2. I think that we have not seen the best of him yeat...I believe that he is feeling strong and doesnt fear a new injury anymore. Every day He gets more confident with that helmet.
