Perhaps Abramovich wasn't too wise to sack Ancelotti... that grass isn't always greener!

Torres better start stepping up. Drogba won't be here next season. I didn't get to see the match yesterday. How did Lukaku look?

3-0 Blues over the toon. Score doesn't tell the story as newcastle had plenty of chances.

Whew...that result had me terrified until about the 85th, when I realized we were probably going to pull it out. Torres doesn't score, so we paid way too much, but the chances created, especially with the rest of a lethal attack, are exceptionally valuable as well. He's more mature than I remember him in his days with Liverpool.

Great win. Nice to see a clean sheet. Mata did a lot of good things. They need to keep giving him touches. And Terry finally looked to be with it today.

I read this on a Chelsea Forum and had to chuckle...

I hate manchester(s)

PRO BLUES *****!

Ugly win today, still playing loosey goosey on D. AVB needs to shore that up. Agreed that Mata looked good, he really can setup some chances from anywhere on the field... love watching him work. Unfortunately I saw the score before watching the recording, so I knew we won it. At about 80' I was thinking "did I see the wrong score?"

Torres still rips my guts out... hoping to see him continue to improve and put it on net. Seemed like he was headed that way earlier in the year before his idiot red.

tilznit - truer words were never spoken. sigh.

and less than 2 mins later, Alba hits the **** post! He had that one gift wrapped by Sturridge who was taking a dang nap.

and a goal from Ramires at 22'

Valencia controlling the ball waaaaaaay more than I would like to see. 2-0 is a good lead though. Of course this **** defense could give that up inside 3 mins.

Doesn't look like it. He just refused a one year extension and looks like he wants to go elsewhere. And it doesn't look like Chelsea wants to give him a longterm deal.

Good win today.

Hopefully they can take a lot away from these two shut outs and have confidence going into Monday's big match. I love the way Sturridge is playing. You think we'll see Lampard benched again?
Terk

Who the heck knows? With Essien out, I have been wondering if AVB was going to feature Meireles or not.

Lampard is a king around London (err... parts of it) but he works best with DD and Anelka. With Anelka and Alex not training, I wonder if that plays into it.

AVB seems to like speed and seems to lean towards youth, but I am still learning about him.

Drogba, Anelka and Alex are all gone in January. There is no way we will let Drogba leave in May for free. No way...

I would love it if Kalou and Obi left as well.

It seems like all of the older guys have issues with accepting a new style of play because they have the "he'll (AVB) get sacked in 2 months anyway, why should we follow his instructions if a new coach is soon to arrive" mentality. This was caused by RA's previous 'happy sacking' actions...

What makes you think DD will be transferred this season?

He wants more £££! It would be stupid if we let him go on a free transfer in May and since he will not agree to our current offer it leads me to believe that he will be gone.

Another indication of his departure IMO is the amount of playing time he is seeing as of recent. I think we are showcasing him for a future sale!

FWIW, this is all just my personal interpretation...

Damn. They are about to be really thin at striker. I know Drogba has taken Lukaku under his wing. Hopefully he's been taking notes because he is going to have to contribute.

Did you forget about Sturridge and Torres? We may need one more as a back up but i'm fine with those 3...
Enzo The Baker

I know. And Sturridge has been playing terrific. I'm just thinking in terms of insurance if one of them goes down.

Agreed. You never know with this club. I wouldn't be surprised if we dropped the £88 for Hulk in January!

Big game this afternoon to get some points in the league. On ESPN2 if anyone wants to watch
