Chelsea’s season can RE-kickstart in crucial month for Blues
Chelsea’s season has been one of many lows. However none seem to remember Benitez had inspired Chelsea to an excellent run of form away from home, but also a complete anihilation of Aston Villa (8-0) at the Bridge.
However, for two seasons straight, QPR had dented Chelsea’s season. Their incredible 1-0 win at the Bridge damanged confidence, and also started a run of games where “weaker opposition” were even harder to beat. Is the fact that London has so many Football clubs in the top flight, e.g. Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea, Fulham, West Ham, QPR in the premier league alone another reason why the Manchester clubs get away with having so many derby days? That’s another point entirely.
Yet Chelsea on Sunday proved to still have fire in the belly. With two players who SHOULD have started in Hazard and Mikel, the blues played Man Utd off the park in the second half. Its the football Abramovich was hoping Guardiola was going to bring had he not gone to Bayern.
The desire and passion shown by Chelsea was similar to the hunger that brought them the European cup.
Now it is a week, and a month where the boo’s must be silenced, and the team must be supported, because incredibly, despite the turmoil Chelsea can still come out with a trophy. Perhaps even a “European cup?” With Bucharest on Thursday and West Ham on Sunday, both at home, victory would send the Blues through to the next round of the Europa league and Chelsea could be above Spurs with a game in hand, assuming Tottenham perhaps slip up against Fulham.
Chelsea’s fans have been largely to blame, but with a very egotistical squad, the blues must now shrug off all negativity and just strive to finish strong, to make way for the summer arrival of yet another new manager.
