Now that Rooney is out I am certain that England will play better as a team in the qualifiers. Roy might do much better if he chooses a few more younger players with the desire to play football and less concentration on the highlife and their own publicity.

Dear  all blues, I am so happy its really  a good start, fingers cross from the bad eyes...

Guess what if but it's a BIG BUT if we stay like this till Xmas with heavy gap, we will win the premier ship and more...

It's ONLY about 12 weeks therefore we have to win these 12 games by 3 points will be 36 plus 9 points, the total will be about 43 points and this will quaranty to win the trophy, God wants Blues to win 2012-2013 Trophy...

Be aware, on control, consistancy, constantly around the clock, don't panic and do not think of way coming back from the top league, do not give a chance to any kind of any things it may happen...

Good luck and I love to see Chelsea's football it's exactly like washing Barcelona, Keep up the hard work...

Hi all,

take it or leave it Chelsea & Barsa are the only 2 clubs I love to see.

Chelsea it the Barsa for England & vis versa the Barsa it the Chelsea for Spain.


I have watch the current game for both Barsa & Chelsea and I find out they both have more or less same style, tactics, and can make the game cool & hot within a second.


However my message to Chelsea players that you are the best, and make sure play for speed and fastening the game and you can change the game for a minute... you know what I means...

Speed speed speed and scores as much as you can play for haterics...


Good luck see you next game
