Gianfranco Zola has taken time out to speak of Chelsea. He has talked about our plight this season, the arrival of Torres and Luiz and the future for us.

He said:
To be honest they've lost important players throughout the season, like John Terry and Frank Lampard to injury and Didier Drogba who had had malaria for several months. So to think that you have a team that is missing three such important players, that doesn't help the situation.

In previous years Chelsea had a bigger squad, they had so many players, but this year I think they've reduced the squad and so that could be one of the reasons.

Obviously there must be something else, but from the outside it's very difficult to spot. Don't forget that we're talking about a team that in the last decade or so has been at the top all the time, and it didn't change very much.

Fernando Torres and David Luiz arrived late, at the end of January, so I think they'll become very, very effective players next season rather than this. Will they be enough? I don't know - I think maybe another player as well, in my opinion.

Whoever is the manager next season, which I hope will be Ancelotti, will know exactly what to do. Chelsea will be competitive next year, no doubt about that. Whether they'll change more players or not, I don't know.

With Torres it's not just about him, it's also about Chelsea finding a way to deploy him at his best. I believe that Torres is not playing his best football at the moment, but he's a striker that moves in a way that is beautiful. I've not doubt that he will be an effective player, and he will be a player who'll make Chelsea stronger.

Something could even happen this season. There's still plenty of football to play and they can still make an impression. In my opinion they are still champions and can still do something yet.

Franco has it spot on in my opinion about everything he has said. I would love to see him come to the club in some capacity, even as a No2 to Ancelotti!.
