Tonight, Chelsea have their first pre season outing against the Seattle Sounders and it's a game we are all looking forward to.

As we know we have a pretty broken up group at the moment with Juan Mata being in London with the Spanish Olympic team, Ryan Bertrand with the GB Team, JT being allowed extended time off due to his Euro2012 involvement, his court case commitments, Rual Meireles and Florent Malouda because of Euro2012 and Fernando Torres because of the same, so the group isn't complete as one and won't be until the Olympics has finished.

JT and Fernando will join up with the group shortly following Frank Lampard, David Luiz and Ramires who all joined this week so we are almost there.

So what of tonight's game? I would say expect plenty of changes to begin with. I wouldn't think that Ramires, Lampard or Luiz would start tonight but maybe have only a short involvement in the game.

However, for the likes of Hazard, Marin, De Bruyne and the returning Yossi Benayoun, it's a chance to really impress.

Sounders are in the midst of their season and their fitness should be way ahead of ours, but for Chelsea it's all part of the preparation to the league starting in a month or so.

I wouldn't expect anything outstanding from Chelsea at the moment as RDM said, it's just the next step as we look to transfer what we have been doing on the training pitch into a proper game.

One thing is for sure, the interest across the pond in the game will be huge because we are the European Champions ( I still love saying that! ) so the Sounders will be well up for this one.

It will be interesting to see how the new boys do!

  1. We'll dey shud just play as champions and that's all. Up blues

  2. It's 4:35am South African time and it's half time now. Damn,it's going to be a long day for me! Hazard and Marin are so slippery and the Sounders just simply cnt handle them. lol! Great to see Lukaku performing. The defense kinda worries me although i know it's not our full strength back four.

  3. seeing as no one seems to have an answer i doubt you will but maybe you can tell me whether or not torres will arrive before the new york game??

  4. I think Torres,Terry,Cole and Meireles will join up on Saturday..and they might play in the PSG game on Monday. Only as late subs I think due to lack of training but should play the All-Star game.
