CHELSEA FC FAN'S GROUP : SUNDAY JULY 6, 2008 As we close in on the EPL'S season opener at Stamford Bridge slated for Saturday August 16th against Portsmouth, verious transfer rumors are still circulating. I'll keep everyone up to date on what becomes official. As of today Didier Drogba is still with Chelsea. As most of you have heard he's seeking a transfer to Inter Milan and yet another chance to play under former Chelsea Coach Jose Mourinho. In my last group blog two days ago, I said the same of Frank Lampard. There are alot of soccer fans that thrive off the rumor mill. Some people just love a good rumor, but I've never been one of those people. My reasoning for this comes from taking a good close look at where Chelsea was at the beggining of this decade compared to where it is today. I always have those two nagging questions in the back of my mind....Can Chelsea really get any better? (and) Can Chelsea stay as good as they already are? The only answer I can offer myself, is to keep moving forward. Always remembering that the "time capsol" is a pill that has already been swollowed. Being content in last season's success only leaves us with an empty glass, so we keep moving forward.
In so doing, we'll inevitably see new faces. At the same time we may look back at the empty glass wondering what if? I welcome everyone to take a final glance backwards and wonder to yourselves what if Avrom Grant could have managed two more wins? What if Didier Drogba's thirst for glory hadn't placed himself ahead of his team? what if Frank Lampards grief of unfortunate family circumstances hadn't overcome him? (and) What if John Terry's glorious Shoot out kick in the rain had found the net? Now....peacefully leave your glass in the sink Chelsea fans, because things are going to get better.
BREAKING NEWS : SUNDAY JULY 6, 2008 AC Milan officialy announced today that Chelsea FC has made an " astronomical" offer for Brazilian Globalstar Kaka, the 2007 European Footballer of the Year. A month ago AC Milan had given Chelsea the Hands Off warning, saying that the Brazilian midfielder/striker was not for sale. The Chelsea front office regrouped and reshuffled and made yet another offer believed to be around 50,000,000 Pounds ($100,000,000). AC Milan Vice President Adriano Galliani says this is an offer that almost can't be refused considering his clubs deep financial debt. With the sale of Kaka to Chelsea, AC Milan could completely wipe out its financial debt and have enough left to aquire a suitiable replacement. Although Kaka played a somewhat lesser role with AC Milan than what would be expected at Chelsea, he's said that he would be up to the challenge and would with out a doubt consider playing in the EPL. Yes, this is the guy who helped Milan win the Champions League in 2007. If Chelsea can sign Kaka, they may have found the answer to Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo!
