Following on now from the first part of my take on 2010 and moving on swiftly we come to..


With rumour and speculation going mad and the build up to the World Cup, Chelsea and their players were very rarely out of the headlines. Harry Redknapp stated he believed Joe Cole has agreed to leave Chelsea on a free transfer, Benitez was sacked from Liverpool and it looked like Torres will be coming to Chelsea. Chelsea then withdrew their contract offer to Joe Cole.

Didier Drogba suffered an injury that threatened his World Cup in a friendly, Michael Essien signed a new contract before Mikel was then ruled out of the World Cup.

I posted that the reason Joe Cole could be leaving was because of Malouda's form. We then had an official announcement that Joe Cole and Michael Ballack would be leaving the club in the summer. With that I asked if Ballack was undervalued at Chelsea. I also posted about Joe Cole, one of the most naturally gifted players we have ever seen. We then had additional news that Belletti would also leave Chelsea.

Being linked with Chelsea in June were: Benayoun, Ibrahimovic, Schweinsteiger, Stephen Ireland, Ozil, Silva and Kaka.

Miroslav Stoch was next to leave the club. Nico Anelka was sent home from the World Cup as John Terry sparked controversy by speaking out at a Press Conference with England. Malouda scored as France crashed out of the competition as JT demonstrated that even without the armband he is prepared to put his body on the line for his country.


Yossi Benayoun signed for club and I wasn't best pleased. We also signed Tomas Kalas. I personally asked Chelsea to try and sign Wesley Sneijder as Didier Drogba became the subject of a £20m bid from City according to the press. Ricardo Carvalho then became subject of speculation that he could be leaving. Carlo stated Champions League was the priority for the coming season as Joe Cole officially signed for Liverpool as I asked who had the better deal between him and Benayoun.

Chelsea's pre season was a disaster as we lost to Ajax 3-1. Fernando Torres then stated he wasn't happy at Liverpool as the bookies stopped taking bets on him moving to Chelsea. Bruma received his first call up to the national team. A young Brazilian called Ramires pleaded for a move to Chelsea.


Ashley Cole's future was still up for discussion with an article in the press stating that he wanted to leave. Meanwhile, our pre-season was even worse with another defeat this time to Frankfurt 2-1. Carlo then confirmed he wanted to sign Ramires. Torres had a change of heart and decided to stay at Liverpool. Carlo stated that Benayoun is better than Joe Cole and we lost another pre-season game this time 2-1 against Hamburg.

Deco left the club as I stated he wouldn't be missed. We then lost the Community Shield 3-1 to Man United as it was announced that Ricardo Carvalho had left the club. In response to the news I posted a tribute and a thank you to Carvalho.

Ramires signed for Chelsea as we got our season underway with a thumping 6-0 win over West Brom at home. Michael Ballack then revealed the club decided to get rid of him and not Carlo as Chelsea then beat Wigan 6-0 away. Michael Mancienne rejoined Wolves on loan as Chelsea beat Stoke 2-0.


September started with Chelsea naming just 19 players in their squad for the new season. Chelsea then beat West Ham 3-1 away, Zilina 4-1 away, Blackpool 4-0 at home but lost 4-3 at home to Newcastle in the League Cup.

After being told we hadn't played anyone of note yet in the League we came up against our first challenge at Man City and lost 1-0. Beat Marseille 2-0 in the Champions League as I asked the question, "Are Chelsea arrogant?".


Chelsea unveiled a state of The King of Stamford Bridge Peter Osgood, We beat Arsenal 2-0 at the Bridge, as Joe Cole was having a tough time at Liverpool, I stated to ignore Gareth Bale to Chelsea rumours and Didier Drogba was having issues with the Ivory Coast Manager.

I stated we had a lucky escape as far as Torres was concerned, Malouda stated he will stay at Chelsea just until 2014, Alex was ruled out for three weeks aswell as news of injury for Benayoun. I posted that Ashley Cole was making headlines for the right reasons, Bruma demanding first team football was him having a laugh, Juventus reportedly wanted Ivanovic as Jaime Redknapp asked England fans to lay of Ashley Cole.

We then had news that Benayoun was more or less out for the season, being linked with Lahm of Bayern was a great thing, also we were being linked with Henderson of Sunderland, Essien praised Carlo and so did Mikel as Chelsea then drew 0-0 with Villa away.

Ashley Cole revealed that Carlo convinced him to stay as Wayne Rooney stated he would be leaving United. Chelsea were reportedly back in for Torres in January as Zhirkov stated he didn't want to leave the club. I told Chelsea fans to ignore Rooney coming to Chelsea stories as Chelsea beat Spartak Moscow away 2-0 in the Champions League.

The first rumour about Frank Arnesen leaving appeared, Rooney decided to stay at United as Chelsea beat Wolves 2-0. Chelsea also announced a new 8-year deal with Adidas.


Chelsea beat Blackburn 2-1, Malouda praised Carlo, Scolari spoke out, Chelsea were linked to right back Srna, Chelsea beat Spartak 4-1 at home, Carlo praised Anelka, Alex stated he wants to stay at Chelsea for good, We lost to Liverpool 2-0, Discussed a move from The Bridge to Earls Court, heard that Borini was willing to sit out his contract and then beat Fulham 1-0.

Ray Wilkins left Chelsea, we then lost 3-0 at home to Sunderland, found out that John Terry has been carrying an injury, I tried to keep everybody calm by posting about our defence, midfield and attack, Stated that it seems as though Carlo has been told to bite his lip and deal with things, We lose to Birmingham 1-0, Then Carlo denies talk of him leaving Chelsea, Ian Wright has his say on Chelsea, We beat Zilina 2-1, Drogba states despite our poor run the players are still the same, Draw away 1-1 at Newcastle and rumours that Guardiola will replace Ancelotti are rubbished by me.


Bruma stated he would be interested in going out on Loan, Terry gave a message to everyone, Carlo opened the door to transfer activity in January, We drew 1-1 at home with Everton, I asked how much we miss Lampard, Cech spoke out to calm us all down, Ivanovic's agent spoke out about a move from Chelsea if not played at centre back, I rubbished rumours of Chelsea paying £30m for Luiz, Redknapp stated Spurs on same level as Chelsea, We lost to Marseille but still won our qualifying group in the Champions League, I asked if we were afraid to play our football, Had a pop at Drogba once again, Terry stated we do not want it as much as the opposition, Posted a Video of Josh McEachran, Drew 1-1 at Spurs, Stated we won't be signing Tevez, Lampard believed we will win the title, Terry told the fans to stay with us, Drew Copenhagen in the next round of the Champions League, Posted a Drogba video and a Malouda video.

Ramires stated things were going well, I rubbished reports we wanted Modric, Kakuta signed a new contract but still thought he could do better, Terry said we aren't strong enough, Stated that apparently Roman has pulled the plug on signings, Beckham to Chelsea on loan?, Lost 3-1 to Arsenal, asked if we were in a crisis, Sturridge to Liverpool?, Kaka once more linked to Chelsea, Emergency board meeting called at Chelsea?, Cech stated we were making wrong choices as we finished the year off by beating Bolton 1-0.

It's been an amazing year for Chelsea. At times it's been unbelievable and at times with Chelsea being Chelsea they put us through all sorts of problems. Like I say, that's part and parcel of being a football fan.

One thing is for sure, Chelsea have finished the year off with a win, with players back from injury and returning soon, with an easier draw in the Champions League and hopefully with new signings in January, everything is set for Chelsea to kick on and do well again starting on Sunday with Villa at home.

As we move onto a new year and a new start none of us will ever forget 2010 our double winning year!.
