Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread Well, if the moment when Silva scored the winner for PSG ever becomes a "what were you doing when.." moment, then here's what Cahill and Terry was doing:

Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

Looking ahead to next season, what changes would everyone like?

What do we need and is it just the players we should change?

Personally, i think we need to adress 3 key areas, LW, CM (Creative Midfielder) and an Attacking RB.

I'd love to see us bring in Neymar, Sneijder and Van Der Wiel.

It'd also be great to see Zola return in a coaching role.

In terms of manager, i'm still very undecided. I mean i like Ancelotti, he's a nice guy and has got us playing good attacking football but i question his decision making in big games. Like against United in the second leg he brought on P.Ferreira when he had Benayoun on the bench.

If he were to go, i'd be happy for just 3 managers to take over:

Mou (Unlikely to happen)

Hiddink (Also unlikely to happen after what he's said recently)

Andre Villa Boas (Inexperienced but has done an amazing job at Porto)

They're my only 3 candidates and i'd much rather them than Hughes or Rikjaard.

I dont think Neymar will join us next season , IMO either Schweinsteiger or Sneijder will be our target for the midfield also Bale will be a great addition + Sanchez and Pastore , I really want Carlos to stay as the manager I think he will be better next season with the new players , Abrahimovic said that he is ready to buy any player:cool:

Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

You have been linked to Lukaku regularly for months now' date=' and there are strong reports in Belgium recently suggesting that you have entered negotiations for him.[/quote']

That probably means that Anelka or Drogba wont play next season in Chelsea,or maybe both of them.

Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

I'd rather Neymar than Bale tbh. I don't think Sanchez will join us, it looks likely he'll join City. I could easily see us bringing in 3-4 high profile players before the start of the season.

I wouldn't mind Anelka going, same goes to Bosingwa and Ferreira. Regardlessof the players we bring in i still think we should keep Malouda as well as Drogba ofcourse, it would be a massive mistake to let Drogba go.

There's been rumours around Lukaku for ages with Chelsea. He's a Chelsea fan apparantly as he took a stadium tour with us last year. We also apparanty tried to sign him when he was 16 but instead he stayed at Anderlecht to continue with school there. As long as we don't have to sell too many players to bring more in i'd happily take Lukaku and anyone else they decide to sign.

I don't think Pastore will be going anywhere if their chairman keeps us with his crazy valuations of him.

Kaka's mother hints at London move

May 10, 2011

Email Print

By ESPNsoccernet staff

The mother of Real Madrid midfielder Kaka has opened up debate over her son's future, by claiming on her Twitter account that they will be in London in August.

Kaka has slipped down the pecking order in Madrid following a £59 million transfer in the summer of 2009 and has been constantly linked with a reunion with former AC Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti at Chelsea.

His mother, Simone Leite, has increased speculation that a deal has already been done after she wrote on her Twitter account: ''We are going to be in London next season where we will be preaching the word of God. We will be there from August - I can tell you.''

Kaka, a devoted Catholic, brought his family with him to Europe when he moved to AC Milan eight years ago and, with Madrid signing Borussia Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin, rumours are that his days in the Spanish capital are numbered.

Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

If we sign Kaka' date=' then Ancelotti is sure to stay. This seems quite probable, espeically with Madrid buying Sahin.[/quote']

From an Epl fans perspective, i'd love to see him in the prem. Spain has taken over in getting all the finished articles, and i think it's about time the premier league got some stars.

Kaka's far from the player he was for milan, bit still has some magic in him, and if he can stay free from injuries, he can really make an impact in the prem.

Guus Hiddink and André Villas Boas top Chelsea's managerial hit-list

• Carlo Ancelotti set to be sacked after trophy-less season

• Hiddink could also have a place as sporting director

Chelsea are to intensify their search for a manager to replace Carlo Ancelotti, with the club's owner, Roman Abramovich, seriously considering the merits of Guus Hiddink and Porto's André Villas Boas to replace the Italian at Stamford Bridge.

Defeat by Manchester United on Sunday effectively ended Chelsea's title defence, condemning the club to the third trophyless season of the Abramovich era. Ancelotti, who had claimed the London club's first league and FA Cup Double in his first season, is due to meet the chief executive, Ron Gourlay, in the week after the final round of Premier League matches and is expecting to be relieved of his duties after two years in charge and with 12 months of his contract to run.

The lack of obvious, high-calibre candidates to replace the 51-year-old had offered hope that he might be afforded a reprieve, though the combination of relative failure in successive Champions League campaigns and a mid-season slump that wrecked their domestic pursuit of honours – despite a late-season revival – appears to have terminally eroded the owner's faith in the management team. Ancelotti has already made it clear he would prefer to remain in England next season and, despite interest at Roma, is not inclined as yet to return to Serie A.

With Pep Guardiola to remain at Barcelona for another season at least, Hiddink continues to top the list of potential replacements for Ancelotti. The Dutchman is a familiar figure in south-west London, having enjoyed a successful spell, including winning the FA Cup, at Stamford Bridge in 2009 as caretaker after the dismissal of Luiz Felipe Scolari. The 64-year-old is contracted to the Turkish Football Federation to the end of the 2012 European Championships and is loth to break that agreement. He has forged himself an admirable reputation over the years for refusing to walk away from contracts, a stance that cost Chelsea the chance of securing his services full-time two years ago when he was still working for Russia.

However, the Chelsea hierarchy retain some hope that Hiddink could yet become available in the summer, particularly if Turkey lose their Euro 2012 qualifying fixture away to Belgium on 3 June. The Turks are third in Group A, a point behind their next opponents. It remains to be seen whether the veteran manager – who has coached seven clubs in four countries and five national sides – would be willing to take on another major full-time club job though, if there are any doubts, the club would be keen to secure his services as a sporting director to replace the outgoing Frank Arnesen.

That would allow them to supplement his appointment with that of a young, up-and-coming manager to oversee the first team with the safety net of Hiddink in the background. The Dutchman's instinct may be to promote Marco van Basten, a former Holland and, briefly, Ajax manager, in that scenario but Villas Boas has caught theeye after a startling campaign with Porto. The Portuguese club will meet their compatriots Braga in next week's Europa League final in Dublin having secured their domestic championship with a record points tally and five matches to spare.

The 33-year-old has already worked at Chelsea, having joined José Mourinho at the club in a role that ultimately saw him scouting opponents, a relationship that was maintained at Internazionale before Villas Boas took over at the Portuguese club Academica and went on to save them from relegation last season.

His qualities are known to the Premier League club's hierarchy and, while Mourinho arguably boasted more established pedigree having won both the Uefa Cup and the Champions League before he was prised from Porto in 2004, the younger man's achievements this year have been noted with interest.

Villas Boas himself believes he may be better suited to continue learning his trade in Portugal for a further season but he is ambitious and would struggle to resist an offer to return to Stamford Bridge. "London is a city where I could live perfectly," he said this month. "The people in the club are fantastic – from the players, staff and the owner. With José we reached maximum success. Chelsea won the Premier League title, 50 years after they last won it. It was something very, very strong and made a big impact on world football and maybe it established the name of Chelsea as a really successful club in the world."

While the former Liverpool manager Rafael Benítez would be interested in the position, Chelsea are not inclined to turn to the Spaniard, while others within the game have pushed the credentials of Mark Hughes and Harry Redknapp. The former Barcelona manager Frank Rijkaard is not thought to be under consideration.

Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

Really unsure if I'd want Kaka at the club' date=' no doubt he is/was an amazing player. But he is far from what he use to be! :o Hmmm.

I've heard very strong rumours about[b'] Lukaku and Neymar[/b], would be immense if we go both :P

I will kill myself if you got both of them :P

lukaku you will get him

Neymar will end up at Madrid or Milan

Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

I wouldn't mind Kak joining, i'm optimistic that he can return to near his best if he gets a good run of games and stays free of injuries. On form Kaka was the best in the world, if he could get anywhere near that level for us he'd still be a great signing.

I'd much rather Sneijder though.

I'd love to bring in both Neymar and Lukaku too, as well Van Der Wiel as i think our RB needs strengthening and he's a good, young and cheap option.

Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread

If there is anybody I would love to see manage Chelsea it must be Owen Coyle. he did amazing with Bolton this season and have seen Bolton join the WC picture in the SM world. I reckon he would be excellent at the blues although Boas sounds good too.

As for transfers. Drogba, Zhirkhov, Bosingwa and Mikel out. Kaka, Neymar, VDW in. I can't see Lukaku at the blues, he sounds more like a gunner to me.

I'm sorry but that can't be a valid reason why he should get a big job.
