The Drama: FA Cup

It was all set for Chelsea: we had one trophy in the bag, and we were now searching for the trophy that we had won quite a few times in recent years. Stoke, however, were out to stop us.

We got off to a good start, dominating possession, and we were probably unlucky not to score earlier than we did. So in the end, we went into the break at 0-0. Afterwards, we came out roaring, with Torres nabbing a goal almost straight of the restart.

We then really started to tighten our grip on the game, and were unlucky not to score earlier. It was only until the 57th minute that we had to wait to before we scored again, and Fernando Torres scored again.

Then, late on in the game, Torres scored again, making it 3-0 to Chelsea and Torres picking up his hat-trick. Things turned sour for Chelsea at the end though, as Michael Essien was handed a straight red card for a dangerous challenge on Stoke's Peter Crouch. But Chelsea had won anyway, and it was now 2/ 3 for the Treble.

The Drama: Champions League Final

The match, set up as Chelsea's first go in the final since that night in Munich in 2012. It would be United's first final appearance since they were outclassed by Barcelona at Wembley in 2011.

Th first half was quiet, and there was only one booking, going to Marouane Fellaini, and that was it. In the second half, United started brightly, with Michael Carrick scoring after 48 minutes. Chelsea were pressing for an equaliser, but couldn't find one until Fernando Torres popped up in the 74th minute. Chelsea now had the momentum behind them. Frank Lampard then scored on 81 minutes. Chelsea held out until the 92nd minute, where Chelsea broke and scored again. But the end of the game was not without late drama, as even after Torres' second, Fabio scored for Manchester United in the 93rd minute.

However, Chelsea held out to win 3-2, and win a final that was almost asa great as in Munich. Chelsea had won their 2nd Champions League in their history from three final attempts.
Awesome season, I'm still in shock over the 6-0 win over Real Madrid

Haha cheers! :D
Dear Guys,

I hope that you have all enjoyed my story so far, and will be looking forward to seeing some more. I do realise that my monthly reports are often not very long and I don't really ever write enough. This was because I just wanted to power through the first season and get it out of the way.

From now on, posts will be much more in-depth, and I will hopefully throw in a few more ideas in the shape of updates. Just warning you all.

Keep reading! Thanks.
Your story's been great, just need to lengthen the monthly reports as you said.

And you should also change your profile picture, that pic of Ballack just makes me want to smack him :/
Great season! Fantastic wins in the Champions League and F.A. Cup as well!
Glenn: I will lengthen everything from now, but the picture is great :P

Pompey: Cheers mate, It all went really well.

End of Season review: 2013/14

Firstly the real result to our season with the last four wins of the season. It was great to get these results and win, and we played very well against Southampton and West Ham. To win in the FA Cup final we played well too, and the Champions League was a great result.

End of Season review: The Players

Juan Mata

Mata was definitely the creative force of my team this season, as he picked up 28 assists for the season. He also scored 16 important goals, which helped us towards our fantastic season. He may have been very quiet during the first-half of the season, but after Christmas he really came alive and showed why he was Fans' Player of the Year 2 years running.

Fernando Torres

Torres was firing in goals all season long, and got some amazing hat-tricks and important goals too. May not have set too many up, but such a good finisher and consistently scoring too.

End of Season review: Competitions

Barclays Premier League

We did extremely well to come out on top after a long season, and even though we almost threw it away towards the end, have some quite impressive statistics. Hopefully, we can push on and do better next season.

UEFA Champions League

We had a very impressive Champions League campaign, with some astonishing wins and comebacks in the list. We did, quite embarrassingly lose to Leverkusen 5-1, but we were fantastic in turning it around. The 6-0 against Real Madrid is still my favourite though.

FA Cup

Another tournament where we shone through, especially with a fantastic result against Millwall. It probably was my favourite of the season, getting such a huge win over rivals like Milwall.

Capital One Cup

Easily our most disappointing tournament. It started well against Crystal Palace, but we couldn't beat Tottenham and we ended up being dumped out of the tournament.

UEFA Super Cup

A nice victory over Bayern Munich, especially as they have such a strong squad.

Thanks to Nick for the banner!
