A year later and to be honest not much has changed at Stamford Bridge. A year ago Chelsea dealt with a season where two new managers came and went and where disappointing rained through in the Premier and European League. Carlo Ancelotti is set with the task of trying to please everyone in the league with Chelsea’s performance, and come question his ability. One thing is for sure though, and that is that Chelsea live football is always entertaining and will continue to be in 2009-10.
It is up to Ancelotti to keep up the team’s momentum that Guus Hiddink got started near the end of last year. He has been unable to find that marquee player that team is after but there is still more than enough talent to compete at the top level. Frank Lampard should be liberated under the new system and Didier Drogba, John Terry and Yuri Zhirkov should provide much needed energy all across the field.
Fans of Chelsea live football were more than pleased with the team’s ability to hang onto John Terry after Manchester City came knocking on the door. Terry partnered up with Ricardo Carvalho should provide solid defense and the likes of Michael Ballack, Ashley and Joe Cole, John Mikel Obi and Florent Malouda should bring all the firepower the team needs to stick to the top of the league.
Ironically some pressure may be relieved this year for Chelsea now that Manchester City has taken over the spot as top spenders in the league. Now it seems that football fans will take down some of their unrealistic expectations for the team. With Manchester United losing their top two players, Carlos Tevez and Cristiana Ronaldo, there is no doubt that Chelsea may be able to compete for the EPL title.
Will Chelsea be able to excel under their new manager or will teams like Manchester City be able to overtake Chelsea in the English Premier League 2009-10 season? Tune in right here on OleOleFootball and find out just exactly what will happen with all the live Chelsea football you want.
