"Borg takes charge at Chelsea ! Chelsea have announced that rookie Chris Borg will be the replacement for outgoing manager Andre Villas-Boas at Stamford Bridge. It is Borg's first job in management and it is highly likely that the Chelsea fans will be upset that a completely unproven manager has been placed in charge. Roman Abramovich has stated that although the media might be questioning his credentials, he has the full backing of the club's board. After his announcement as the new Gaffer, Chris Borg felt the full glare of the media spotlight as he answered a range of questions such as the new job and transfer policy & also promised the fans entertaining football whilst maintaining good results!"

I have just accepted a 2 year contract worth 31,000e p/w & believe I can challenge for the title whilst having a good run in the other 3 cup competitions. As a result my transfer budget for this season has been set at 16.1M and my wage budget at 2.3M.

So first of all I have decided to keep the current staff & Roberto Di Matteo as my right hand man who will be in charge of most press conferences & arranging friendlies. I also believe highly in sending youngsters out on loan & will look to do so with most of my U21s. Will start off with a 4-1-2-3 as my main formation.

Good signings there, what will be your tactic in detail and line up?


So here are my results for my Pre-Season friendlies, played all the squad on rotation. Daniel Sturridge & Fernando Torres excelled up front scoring 4 goals each, meanwhile rest of the goals came from Didier Drogba, Nicolas Anelka, David Luiz, John Terry, Frank Lampard, Marko Marin, Salamon Kalou & Frank Lampard !
Should have kept Alex; hes a rock solid defender.

Coming Right Up With Some Screenshots
#50222 patrick1 : Should have kept Alex; hes a rock solid defender.

You are right, he is a solid defender but needed the funds from the transfer & also he was on high wages and would want higher wages when contract expires. I might regret this decision but we will see :)


Here are my team instructions :

And here is my ideal starting 11 at the moment if all players were fit :

Will update with some more squad rotation later on throughout the season !

Let's Go !!


Chelsea player of the month :


Kalou netted two goals against West Brom earning him the MOTM and in my opinion player of the month. The other goals came from Fernando Torres, Marko Marin, Juan Mata & David Luiz.

Manager of the Month Award !


League Cup 3rd Round : Away to Manchester United

Uefa Champions League Group Stage :

Chelsea (ENG)
Valencia (SPA)
Zenit St.Petersburg (RUS)
Napoli (ITA)
Shaqiri is a beast after a couple of years, i've got him for Inter and trained him for advanced playmaker and his shots are unstoppable!

He definitely looks quality, on his debut he gave a great assist to Drogba coming on as a sub. Might send him out on loan for a year maybe...


Chelsea player of the month :


Fernando Torres netted 5 goals this month which earned himself MOTM in two of the matches. Other goals came from John Terry, David Luiz, Salamon Kalou, Juan Mata, Frank Lampard & Didier Drogba


After our 2-1 win at Old Trafford, the League Cup 4th round fixture will be away at Manchester City !


Chelsea player of the month :


Sturridge scored two important goals during our Champions League clash against Zenit earning him the MOTM & player of this month. The other goals of the month were scored by John Terry, Ashley Cole, John Obi Mikel, Didier Drogba, Juan Mata & Romelu Lukaku

Unfortunately we have been knocked out from the League Cup in the 4th round by Manchester City.

Media !


Chelsea player of the month :


Didier Drogba, despite his age, has been unforgiving once again this month scoring 5 goals which earned him MoTM in 3 of our 5 fixtures & the EPL player of the month. The other goals came from Daniel Sturridge, Fernando Torres, Frank Lampard, Branislav Ivanovic & Juan Mata. Not forgetting some unbelievable performances by Petr Cech in goal.

Manager of the Month Award !
