For RB we are looking at Azpilicueta who will be a decent back up, I would prefer Maicon though. RB will be sorted by the time the season starts.

As for CB we have 3 young CB's who will replace Terry, Kalas, who did really well in the Eredivise for Vitesse. Bruma who had a good season at Hamburg and Chalobah who is our next best youth product after Piazon. Chalobah will be a starter for us one day, no doubt.

But the replacement for Terry is Cahill.

Chelsea's attack will be completely different to last season. I don't know how the players will gel but Chelski will be a tremendously interesting team to follow this season.

I think the main thing will be how Hazard and Mata Gel, if they do it flawlessly, we will be awesome, if they can't we could be in trouble.

Centre forward is also a position where I find problems. What happens if Torres gets injuried or is off form, whos your replacement?

Sturridge, I am not too worried as he was our second highest scorer last year.

Who will finish above us saeco?

3rd/4th in EPL, CWC, FA/Carling(or whatever it is called now) and Semi of CL.
They are not stronger than Man City or United.

title contenders, really? takes a lot more than hazard and oscar to go from 5th to 1st...

not to mention their cl campaign was 90% sheer dumb luck and 10% drogba so they'd need a massive improvement to come anywhere close to what they did this year

plus having torres as your number 1 striker is like buying a ferrari and fitting it with shopping trolley wheels Laughing

We underperformed in the EPL last year. We could have been much higher than 6th had we not had an idiotic defencive tactic.

and you assume you'll have a better defensive tactic because...?

you can't park the bus in every game in the league, and chelsea's defence in the few relevant games under di matteo (cl) was all over the place, especially against napoli

I liked the way they're strengthing what they need most, but I'm still not convinced on Di Matteo.

They'll finish 4th or 3rd at most.

Yet to impress me in pre-season at all

Defensive frailties still showing

Also the team seems to have lost all its physicality and has switched to a fast light weight team

If anything it will take this team at least a season to find it's feet.

League titles are product of consistency, you guys have shown you have the consistency to finish 7th. It's gonna take a lot to finish in the top 4, let alone win the league.

I dont want to talk about Potential here because on potential alone, any big team in England could do it.

How good they were last season is a better indication of their ability to go out and win week after week.

Signing a myriad of players is always nice and exciting, but they can flop just as badly for all we know. RDM will be tested himself to a much greater length than what he showed last season for example.

Post by Die Borussen Thu Jul 26, 2012 11:15 am

i can totally see them challenging for the title until the end
they dont have avb which was a major reason of the team underperforming from the players disliking him to his failure to get the best out of the team using nosense tactics

one could argue that even with RDM things didnt change in the league but there are many reasons for that, he was declared to lead a "dead" team to success, when he became the coach the league wasnt a possibility so they focused in the CL i suppose

there will be stability in the defence as long as they dont use luiz

new season, good atmosphere, new/good players, new torres and mata who imo will have the biggest impact and lead the team to glory

I thought no one would admit that Chelsea have waning defense. They should probably sign new central backs.

Embarrassing knee jerk from kick before the window has ended silent. I don't think atm we are that much stronger than last year currently, due to players unfamiliar with the league coming in replacing those who were seasoned in.

That being said I read some crap about us being defensive in league under RDM, which I don't really agree with and how he may struggle to coach attacking players. I really can't remember his management at WBA or swans, so won't comment on that side. But as far as Im concerned he made the most of what he could with the players at disposal, so you can't write off this attacking players malarkey.

Our game towards end of season QPR in particular where Mata any Torres combo bromance was in full affect has given me some optimism, as someone who watched every game last season no one can doubt Torres movement. Yes hes somewhat weak minded, but with the players added in they will be able to find him better, he may not have deadly clinical precisionyyet but am sure he will bag goals as long as hes found. I mean there were stages of last year when he wouldnt move when Danny had the ball in tho box and it was almost as bad when Malouda had it too.

The defence and keeper side I have no problems with, Luiz under AVB and creative freedom from the back was a disaster but under RDM hes much better. Aa long as we sign Azpilcueta or someone for RB am sure we will challenge for the title.

I predict a top 3 finish, Man City got the best squad/players hands down, Man Utd got fergie factor and refs to help them which means they will always be there. Ill write off Spuds personally and Arsenal well meh depends as the window still has a long way to go.

Fourth imo. Too many players will want to play centrally, seen nothing from RDM to suggest that they'll play attractive football [though they can still grind out results] and lost a massive influence in Drogba. Their defence is average at best.

[quote="Mr Nick09"]
You have signed many talented young players, so gelling would be the first concern. I think Losing Drogba will have an effect sooner or later, and Torres is still a massive unknown in the league.[/quote]

Torres made his name in the league - how is he a massive unknown?

Top 3 in the league, CL quarters/semis, community shield 50-50, Supercup, CWC and maybe one of COC/FA Cup.

FA Cup Community Shield - not favorite against City, but 45% chance to win. Should be good game.
UEFA Super Cup - favorite to win it, but it won't be big upset if Atletico wins. I pick Chelsea to win it though
FIFA Club World Cup - big favorite to win.
Capital One Cup - depending on the draw and line-up they will put. 1/4 will be good result.
FA Cup - Chelsea should aim to win it, along with Man City the main contenders for the title.
EPL - if they add a good rightback, they are set to contend. 2nd favorite to win it after Man City.
Champions League - all depends on the draw. They won't defend the trophy, that's sure, but reaching QF should be their minimum expectations.

To conclude, I predict Chelsea to win 3 trophies from 7 that they will compete to win - UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and FA Cup. Let's see what will Chelsea achieve :coffee:

As for football they will play, they can be fun to watch in upcoming season, let's see what will di Matteo do with this squad.

They wont finish in the top 2.

Also lol @ taking encouragement from beating QPR and expecting Torres to replicate that performance.

Why do you think it was the only game last season where he looked half decent? Laughing

Chelsea actually have a good midfield and creative attackers now but i cant see the defence performing well in a attacking line up only Luiz is fit to perform in such a team.

And they have no goalscorers.

Despite the signings they still have a long way to go to get even close to the top 2.
