Roman Abramovich has reportedly sacked Andre Villas Boas due to rumours that he has been sleeping with the Russian's wife. To replace AVB he has brought in Connor Newman who is a unknown face to football but the Russian owner has stated that Connor is a close friend of his and has the upmost confidence in him to perform.

In my first Press Conference as manager I stated that I want to bring attractive football to the club and I believe Chelsea have a strong chance in all competitions this year with the players available, but I also commented that I would be looking to bring new faces to the club.

My first job was to choose the formations Chelsea were going to be using so they could start practising in training to get familiar with the new tactics.
I chose 4-1-2-1-2, 4-5-1, 4-2-3-1 as I believed these formations would bring the best out of my players.

Pre Season Results.



After a good pre season Im now confident of a good start to the Premier League season. Fernando Torres topped the pre season goal chart with 9 goals and was closely followed by ageing but quality Ivorian striker Didier Drogba with 6 goals.

Transfer Details.



I have signed a couple of hot prospects to prepare for the future, I hope we can nurture their skills so that in the future they can be quality players for Chelsea.
I have also made a solid investment in Marek Hamsik who is a quality midfielder that plays very similar to that of Frank Lampard, In pre season he has impressed and has made a solid partnership with Lampard in the centre of midfield. New signing's Erick Torres, Yaya Sanogo and Leandro have gone on a season long loan to feeder club Vitesse to improve their skills as they are not needed for the first team at this time.

We have also had to say goodbye to Nicolas Anelka and Florent Malouda, two players that just didn't fit into my plans, all of us at Chelsea hope they can further their careers at their new clubs.
Love a Chelsea story !

Had Leandro & Torres myself but had to let them go, as they were both unhappy playing a backup role. With Mbaye Niang on the other hand, I still have him now in 2017. Got him for about the same price 8 million - definitely an excellent buy & hasn't complaint once yet playing a backup role to Cavani/Neymar/Torres.

Hey Chris, thanks for the feedback, ill keep it in mind, just starting the PL season now, hopefully i can get off to a good start :)
August.

The First day of the Premier League season has arrived, with John Terry and Didier Drogba out of contention due to injuries sustained in pre season, I am forced to call Romelu Lukaku from the reserves to replace Drogba, and Alex will play instead of Terry. Before the game I was confident and expressed my confidence publicy in the pre-game press conference, I sent the lads out and told them I was expecting a win.

Chelsea vs Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-3

Team hugely underperformed, we created the chances but Torres and Lukaku couldn't finish them, Very different to the performances in pre season.

The whole team was hoping to bounce back with a win against Bolton.

Bolton vs Chelsea 0-2
Fernando Torres
Marek Hamsik

Team News
Drogba has returned to full health.
Terry has returned to full health.

Champions league group draw.


According to the media Chelsea have been handed a easy and simple group to progress from, with only SLB providing any real threat.

Im hoping for my first home win as manager of Chelsea against a strong Aston Villa side today.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa 1-0
Didier Drogba

We've made improvement's from the first game dramatically and I can only be pleased with that, but I am still in shock after the first game and if we want to push for a Champions league spot this year there cannot be a repeat performance.
