Mourinho already given the boot?

We have unconfirmed reports coming out of Stamford Bridge has been given the boot out of Stamford Bridge as the Board are unhappy with the way Jose Mourinho has been handling the Transfer's of the club with the Catalyst's being the purchase's of Willian, Eto'o and the Loaning out of Young striker Romelu Lukaku.

If the rumours are true many speculate who is actually going to take over the helm at the Bridge with no big names in the market wanting the job a lot of sources close to the club are looking at bringing in Alex Capp a seemingly unknown man in the world of Football but people who know the man have all said he is a student of Jose Mourinho and was one of his tactical advisors during Jose first reign at the Bridge along with a short stint at Inter Milan as well.

Many say that this is a money pressured move saying the club do not want to splash out on a expensive move for a Manager but it would be a risky move for such an inexperienced manager.

We will keep you update with any further news we hear.
Good luck mate!

Cheers given the wolves one a break

He has Gone!

Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Chelsea Football Club and his replacement is his old Tactical Advisor Alex Capp and many are speculating will he be able to make the step up to such a high level of managing.

Here's Capp's response to the Media Speculation to the reported wholesale changes he is to make to the squad.

I don't know where these rumours have come from. All I want to do is improve the youth players at this club and bring in new youth players. There are a few players I would like to bring in to improve the first team and for future. I will of course have to make space in a large squad by letting a few players go but we will see what happens.
Good luck :)

He stands by what he says

Alex Capp has stood by what he said about the youth players as three players go out on loan for first team experience with Chaloobah, McEachran and Omeruro leave on loan. He has also brought in 2 new youth players and an old Face returns to the Bridge.

Chalobah and McEachran are touted by Capp to be the future Captain and Vice-Captain at Chelsea

Omeruro goes to Chelsea's affiliate club ADO Den Haag.

One of the young players to come in is Southampton's young highly rated left back Luke Shaw for a record fee for a Full Back.

Another youth man is Mason Bennett and he is highly rated from Derby and a man for the first team is Chelsea old boy Nemanja Matic who has joined for 12million

Thank you
Very good signings! But didn't you overpaid for Shaw? I hope he prooves that he deserves that money!

Well I offered what I normally do of 25million but they said extra 4million and I didn't want him to go to United so I coughed up he turns great by 2nd/3rd season

1 Leaves for good two go for more Experience

Micheal Essien has left Chelsea with the best of luck from Manager Capp as they left on good terms. Capp had this to say:
After long discussions with Micheal and his people we both saw it as best that he moved on as I could not promise him the playing time he wanted

De Bruyne and Feruz have both moved on Loan to gain some extra experience.

Capp had this to say:

Feruz has gone on Loan as I see its the right time for him to be exposed properly to the world of First team football. De Bruyne asked to go out on Loan during the team meeting we had I full believe it will benefit him massively I would of liked to keep him at the club but I do not want to keep him and see him play a bit part role.
I can tell you, De Bruyne becomes a monster! Don't sell him!

Two more Youngs players come in

Harry Maguire has joined Chelsea from Sheffield United for 3.2million, he has gone straight back out on Loan to Brighton & Hove Albion for more first team experience where he will be used in the first team as a rotation option.

Brazillian centre-back Doria has been brought in for 7million and Capp is rumoured to be using him for the first team and he will not be going out on loan any time soon.

I know i've still got him on my first Chelsea save he's 29 he has 3 World player of the year awards
Doria it's a great signing!

End of pre-season

Chelsea look raring to go with the season with a strong pre-season under their belts and look ready to take on recently promoted Cardiff City. There will be regrets however as Torres was injured in the first game and will now be out until September and having Omeruro having returned from loan early with a injury which has put him out of action for 8 months.
