Scolari (......woa oh oh oh)

After all the debate and speculation - now we know – it’s “Big Phil” at the Bridge and one thing’s for sure; if we thought Mourinho did colourful press conferences, wait till this guy gets going.

Personally, and for what it’s worth, I think it’s a great move and a big signing in itself – that’s, before we get on to the transfer speculation. This guy 'brooks no crapulence' so he’ll deal with the dressing room egos and at least we won’t see all that press speculation about Abromovitch picking the team or giving tactical advice to players anymore. OK, so he hasn’t managed a club side in Europe but he’s the real deal when it comes to motivating and inspiring his players so I can’t see that being a problem.

As for the transfer speculation, it looks like we’ve bought and sold just about everybody – at least according to the press. My hopes are for Lamps and Rickey to stay (Deco’s good but we’ll get more goals from Lamps), Drogba to be shown the door (as good and important as his goals have been, he’s become a petulant liability and I can’t forget the Champions League sending off) along with Malouda and then perm any three incomming from Kaka, Van de Vaaht, Villa, Drente, Ribery, Robinho et al.

One thing you can be sure of, it’s never dull following Chelsea

Come on you Blues

Now that the Euro's are over....

..... we can get back to the proper side of football (by that I mean following the mighty blues).

Yes it was a mildly entertaining tournament and yes the Spanish deserved to win it by virture of being the best team by a country mile; but overall it was a series of disappointments from my perspective. Really wanted to see a good Dutch performance, hoped that the Czech Republic might come good, couldn't believe how poor the French and the Italians were...... but then England weren't even good enough to qualify - hey ho

Anyway, I've had a blogging break and got over the heartbreak of the Champions League final - well as much as any blue blood possibly can - so its back to the keyboard and bring on the Premiership

Come on you Blues
