Is Romelu Lukaku The Missing Link?

Didier Drogba left, after firing Chelsea to a FA Cup and Champions League double, Fernando Torres couldn’t hit a barn door with a banjo, and around 73 strikers were linked with a move to the Bridge.

Skip forward a few months, and Fernando Torres produced a cameo role to fire Spain to European glory, and everyone has suddenly remembered the £18m Belgian we acquired last season.

A Bright Future In Store At The Bridge.

John Terry, Frank Lampard, Petr Cech. All names you associate closely with Chelsea FC, and the modern Roman Abramovich era.

But who are the next superstars to grace the hallowed turf? Im going to run through a starting eleven at the club, all of whom are in the process of transforming into settled Premier League players.

Has Andre Villas-Boas Gone Mad?

After a less than successful spell in charge of The Blues, AVB has set up camp down the road at White Hart Lane. A risky move at best, the Spurs fans have instantly warmed to him, and seem to have got on board his ideas.

Many top managers have had a poor spell at one club in their career, but after his failures at Stamford Bridge, he surely cannot afford to do it at consecutive clubs in the most prestigious league in the world.

Could We Forgive and Forget, If The Worst Happens?

John Terry is in court this week, facing trail for allegations he verbally attacked Anton Ferdinand during the 1-0 defeat at Loftus Road last season.

Luiz Suarez was found guilty of a similar matter last season on Patrice Evra, and served an 8 match ban, but we are told that should Terry be found guilty, he would receive a fine of up to £2,500 for his actions. The main difference being that John Terry’s insult comes under the term “racially aggravated comment” and not a full blown racist slur, such as Suarez’s incident

A Big Summer For The Blues

In March, Andre Villas-Boas was sacked as Chelsea manager. At the time, the Blues faced the possibility of an early exit from the Champions League, a difficult away trip to Birmingham City in the FA Cup and a top four finish was looking increasingly unlikely. Come May, the West London side had won two of the three competitions.

Transfer Update….

Its been another week of speculation and rumours in the press this week, adding a few names to the bubbling pot of targets for the summer, which has now breached fifty.

Firstly, Hulk has insisted that nothing has been agreed regarding a move to Chelsea, stating that his agent deals with such things, and he is focusing purely on the Brazilian Olympic team, which he is one of the three registered over the age of 23.

Sturridge’s Chance To Shine

After narrowly missing out on the English Euro 2012 squad, Sturridge has been handed a massive chance to shine on the world stage this summer, after being named in the 18-man Great Britain squad for the Olympics this summer.

A collection of the world’s young starlets will take centre stage this summer as they battle it out at London 2012, and will play Senegal, UAE, and Uruguay in the Group Stages later this month.

Transfer Rumours of the Day…

With former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas taking charge of Tottenham today, there are rumours that he is interested in taking Daniel Sturridge along with him as one of his first signings.

There is talk of a £10m bid being lodged, as AVB is apparently going to be given a £70m warchest to work with once Luka Modric has been sold. With us being in the market for Modric, could this work for us and could be negotiate a Sturridge + £ for him to join us? Im sure we will find out in time.
