    I know Essien is a huge player for us, but from December onwards he looked a shadow of the player he once was. In fact, I'd say that in the last few months of the season, he rivalled Malouda for being our worst player. His passing and drive went, not to mention his 'engine,' he looked laboured for the last few months of the season.

    In all honesty I think this may be a blessing in disguise for us, let him have couple of months off, come back to full fitness, and hopefully we'll see the player with the same energy he once had.

    Modric is not happy, definitely a lot more to come from this transfer saga...

    Modric would be amazing for us, but this situation is escalating like crazy. Seems like Redknapp and Levy are making a 'stand for football' by forcing players to honor their contracts, regardless of what happens. And looks like we've really pissed them off. Can easily see Utd coming in with a bid and spurs accepting, just because 'they went about it the proper way'.

    And if they did get modric, we'd be screwed.

    We'd be more screwed if they got Sneijder...

    if we got modric and they got sneijder, i wouldnt mind so much. they've got such a strong team atm, I think next season'll be a real struggle regardless. Although it'll just be a 3 way horse race, with us, city and utd.

    I'm just looking forward to seeing more of Luiz and Ramires. AVB has seen them both play before, so I can see them being used effectively. I was worried that under ancelotti - and especially after the 'disagreement' - that Luiz would be dropped for an extended period of time..

    ....Great...right we're going to need a top class CM now. A huge bid for Sneijder, Moutinho or Modric will go on now..But what about his versitility, none of the above can play in different positions?

    This could be a blessing in disguise tbh. Ramires is better than the current Essien, who was a shadow of his former self last season.

    I agree in a way, ever since Essien had injuries involving his knees he hasn't been the same player. In contrast, Ramires has seemed to settle in fairly well and I'm sure to expect the same if not more from him next season.

    First game back in and a 3-0 win, loved to see that AVB had used all the kids in this game and reading the article above they played well! Rajkovic played his first game for Chelsea. Torres scored woo! xD

    Take a look at this sweet goal from Benayoun in the practice match against Wycombe.

    Modric handed in his transfer request today, so it'll be interesting to see what happens next

    £5m for a season long lona + £70,000 a week wages is absolutely obscene and pointless.

    Also read somewhere that Modric really is wanting the Chelsea move, but Dawson has supported Redknapp and Levy in keeping their star players such as Modric, Bale, Van Der Vaart etc
