December is always the most hectic month for Chelsea and this time was not different. Chelsea had 8 matches (6 PL matches, 1 CL, 1COC). Chelsea had a great start, winning the first three PL matches but the fatigue caught up the squad and they lost back to back matches to Everton and Spurs. Everton were surprising at 2nd and by winning the match against us, they climbed over us to the top of the league and back to back losses caused Chelsea to fall down the mountain to second postion and only 3 points clear of Manchester City who are at third. The only good thing that came up was our win against Sevilla which saw Chelsea qualify for the knockout stage fixing their second position on the group table.

As January reaches for the premier league, all the clubs and the boards start clicking the back of the pens and prepare the scouting reports for the target. January might not be the busiest transfer window but it is important for the clubs to find players who could push the teams to the goals. It’s this time of the year when small teams start rumbling around the players and January also helps big teams to find further recruitments. Chelsea FC is no exception.

Reports from various Spanish media and newspapers suggest that Chelsea Manager Dennis Wise is interested in Carlos Vela. Recently Dennis Wise fielded various questions from about his transfer policy for January transfer window. chose the main focal point for the interview with Kierent Vincent asking “recent reports have linked you with a move for R.Sociedad right winger Carlos Vela. Are you prepared to go on record with your thoughts on this story.”

Wise responded, saying “I would love to make him part of the team and we are working towards that end”

Carlos Alberto Vela Garrido, born on 1 March 1989, is a Mexican professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Sociedad and the Mexico national team as a winger.
Vela has already played for Arsenal and West Brom

He started his career at Mexican club C.D. Guadalajara and caught the eye of various European clubs after finishing as the top scorer at the 2005 FIFA U-17 World Championship, finally joining Premier League club Arsenal that year. After joining Arsenal he had loan spells at Spanish clubs Salamanca and Osasuna, as well as fellow English club West Bromwich Albion, finally joining Real Sociedad on loan, then permanently on 10 August 2012.


Chelsea's 27 year-old Nigerian defensive midfielder John Obi Mikel has joined Wolfsburg on loan until the end of the season. He will receive £54,000 per week as a part of the loan deal.

As a part of the deal, Wolfsburg may purchase Mikel for £4,000,000 at any point during the loan spell.

Mikel, 27, arrived at Stamford Bridge from Lyn for a fee of £4M in 2006.

Mikel's arrival at Wolfsburg has been greeted in positive fashion, with fans having been impressed by the player's ambition and determination to succeed.
HAHAHAHAHA You've loaned Mikel? How did you got it? Offering 50% wages and stuff like that? I think I've sold him for 4 milions.... Forgot to see in my save hehehe. BTW how is the UCL?
Oh and Carlos Vela? I don't know mate... His lack of natural fitness and lower stamina could be a problem for a team like Chelsea...
Blitz- funny thing...i actually transfer listed Mikel, no body came...then suddenly wolfsburg came out of nowhere for loan. I grabbed the oppurtunity and loaned him out. They send their offer of 50% wage. I did not even see that. Just accepted it. Wanted to get rid of Mikel in any way possible. Sociedad are askin for 40m for Vela. So...its a no no for me too...Don't worry..
Good to see Mikel go! Hope they want him permanent after the loan
TaroMisaki - I hope for the same thing too. And if they don't want him permanent. They I'll terminate his contract mutually.
An interesting story so far, and a good read. How's Europe treating Chelsea?
Important Note: My PC has it will take some time to post again. Please stay tuned and have patience. Thank you all for appreciating.

Keep the blue flags flying High!!!!
Hi mate, Hope you get your story back again. Anyway, just for the record, that player Kevin Vogt I've told you to buy for the Mikel/Matic position, worth like 7M when u buy. I've sold him yesterday to Borussia for 22M hahaha, after just one season, winning the champions league fa cup and premier league. So... Buy him mate hahaha.
Hello guys, I am back with my game. I will start posting my story and continue my journey.
