Coming up to this game, I was hoping RDM wouldn’t take a negative approach as he did in our last league game. From that point of view, I’m truly pleased, as the Blues actually went out to play, and didn’t sit back waiting for the old lady. Before the game, I tweeted that I was happy to see Oscar given a go as #10, but also that I was hoping Lampard would actually perform. Well let’s talk some more about this 2 points. Continue reading
Coming up to the Reading game this past weekend, I was very excited about the potential lineup.

The Portuguese player who was brought in for 12 million pounds last summer has now been sold for 8 million pounds to the Turkish club.

Sorry I’ve been away for this long, but guess what? I’m back now!
Where should I start? Well maybe with the recent activities and news surrounding Chelsea FC. For once in the past 3 years, I was delighted with the club’s recent transfer policy. Chelsea dipped very early into the market, got their main target in Eden Hazard, and allowed him to gel with the current squad during pre-season. If I had to pick a single player to reinforce the squad over the summer, it would’ve been exactly him: Eden Hazard.
