I for one was surprised to hear Alan Shearer state on BBC's Match of the day that Chelsea are "The closest to Barcelona we have in this country" on Saturday night but then again are we surprised?

Now don't get me wrong, I am far from going over the top here about our new playing style and attacking three this season but you have to admit, the way they have got used to playing alongside each other and the understanding they have already is surprising and things are going well.

You think of Barcelona and you think of their midfield. Busquets, Iniesta, Xavi, Fabregas and Pedro all playing behind Lionel Messi and we have all seen just how amazing they can be.

We look at Chelsea now and we see Mikel, Ramires, Hazard, Mata and Oscar all behind Torres and you have to say we are well on the way to something similar but to say we are close to Barcelona is early days indeed.

The thing is, I can't help but think that the more the likes of Mata, Oscar and Hazard play alongside each other, they can only get better and better.

Maybe then, and only then, we can even be compared to the best team in the world over the last few years (even though they still haven't beaten us!).

What do you think about the comparison and our playing style this season?

    Anyway, i would have apreciated ds praise d more,if it has bn 4rm anoda person,but 4rm such a stupid person as Alan Shearer.Now he wants 2redeem himself after he had went public 2incites d bunch of twats of F.A's 2charging our own Arshley Cole.Whoever that hates any of d chelsea players/heroes is an enemy of blues's progress. We revered our players so much dat we dont tolerate any negatives against dem. Infact,we ar not even in dsame clas wt Barca,d record is there showing we ar better 2dem,looking @our past outings against dem. All hail Arshley Cole,all hail d captain,leader,legend John Terry,all hail Chelsea d 3ru pride of London.Blue is our colour
