Speculation has been rife about Wesley Sneijder’s future at Inter Milan and having been frozen out of first team affairs for much of the current campaign it seems entirely plausible that the Dutch international is set to leave the San Siro. For those doubting the possibility of a move to White Hart Lane one would have to recall the North London club’s coup to capture then Real Madrid midfielder Rafael Van der Vaart in similarly circumstances, as Tottenham beat off interest from a host of interested parties to land the Dutch playmaker. Tottenham boss Andre Villas- Boas could well feel his squad could do with added creativity having lost the aforementioned Van der Vaart and Luka Modric over the summer and therefore chairman Daniel Levy may well be open to the mounting of a move to capture the 28 year old. Sneijder had an excellent start to his Inter Milan career, collecting a Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League treble in Jose Mourinho’s final season in charge of the Nerazzurri but failed to mak ...
Clive Allen all the way with you ... Carl Former Spurs striker Clive Allen believes the club can finish in the top four this season. Tottenham have won four games on the bounce in all competitions for the first time since February 2011 as Andre Villas-Boas finally looks to have got his side to gel at White Hart Lane. And Allen feels, with the players at his disposal, the Portuguese manager could well lead his charges back into the Champions League after a two-year absence. He told the Weekend Sports Breakfast: “It’s been an indifferent start but what [Andre Villas-boas] has is a magnificent squad of players. He has got some top players within the squad. “He’s got players that have found their form over the last few weeks and they’re capable of finishing in the top four, as we did last season and they must be striving for that and they’ve got a great chance.”

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has spent a staggering £76 MILLION on firing managers during his time in charge at Stamford Bridge. It’s been revealed Andre Villas-Boas was paid a staggering £12million after being sacked last season. Abramovich’s hire-and-fire approach has now cost the Champions League winners £76m in five years on management and coaching staff.

Vanguard Malouda won’t leave Chelsea On May 24, 2012 · In Sports 6:15 pm PARIS (AFP) – Chelsea’s French international winger Florent Malouda admitted on Thursday that he would like to stay with the London club next season amid talk of a move away from Stamford Bridge. Having won the Champions League in a penalty shoot-out against Bayern Munich last weekend, Chelsea will face Europa League winners Atletico Madrid in the European Super Cup in August and will also participate in the Club World Cup at the end of the year. Malouda admitted that the possibility of taking part in these tournaments is an extra incentive for him stay put.“The European Super Cup and the Club World Cup are two competitions close to my heart,” he told reporters at France’s pre-Euro 2012 training camp in Clairefontaine.“In five years at Chelsea, I have won five trophies, the ones that I came here to try and win. “During the last two transfer windows, the club have said that I was not available for transfer.”When ask ...

Liverpool cool Villas-Boas interest - report Liverpool have cooled their interest in Andre Villas-Boas as they seek to fill the vacant managerial position at the club, according to The Guardian. The Portuguese manager had been touted as one of the front runners for the position at Anfield, after the club started its search to replace Kenny Dalglish, who was sacked just over a week ago. But the Reds have reportedly begun to seriously consider other candidates, such as Wigan's Roberto Martinez and Swansea's Brendan Rodgers. Despite the 34-year-old's failure with Chelsea in the Premier League, he had previously guided Porto to three titles in his sole campaign at the helm. The Blues went on to lift the FA Cup and Champions League following his sacking, with his former assistant Roberto Di Matteo taking charge on an interim basis. My take Did I just hear thank God from Liverpool fans?
Winning the Champions League has boosted Roberto Di Matteo's chances of landing the Chelsea manager's job "enormously", according to chief executive Ron Gourlay. After taking over from the sacked Andre Villas-Boas in a caretaker role in March, Di Matteo led the Blues to the FA Cup and then, last weekend, Champions League glory with a penalty shoot-out victory over Bayern Munich. He is now the bookies' favourite to...

Di Matteo Deserves 3-Year Contract, Bayern Coach Tells Chelsea Owner Published on May 21, 2012 by pmnews · No Comments Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has called on Roman Abramovich to give Roberto Di Matteo a three-year contract after Chelsea secured Champions League glory for the first time in their history. After presiding over a startling upturn in fortunes following Andre Villas-Boas’ dismissal in February, Di Matteo still doesn’t know if he is going to get the job on a permanent basis. Heynckes sees no reason for further delay. “I congratulate Chelsea on their victory,” said Heynckes. “If you wish me to say something about Roberto Di Matteo it is that Chelsea should give him a three-year contract.” Heynckes admitted his side had no-one to blame but themselves after dominating throughout the 120 minutes. However, after taking the lead through Thomas Muller with just eight minutes remaining, Bayern allowed Didier Drogba to level in the final minute. Then, after Arjen Robben had a pe ...
From zeros to heroes, chumps to champs: in three short months Roberto Di Matteo steered Chelsea back from the precipice to the greatest moment in the club's history. Chelsea's stunning Champions League victory over Bayern Munich on Saturday completed one of the most dramatic reversals of fortune in football history, the glorious final act of a season which had once threatened to unravel. When Di Matteo was appointed as interim manager following the dismissal of Andre Villas-Boas in early March, few observers viewed the Former Chelsea midfielder as a viable long-term candidate for the job. In the days that followed Villas-Boas's dismissal, a laundry list of potential managers were name-checked in connection with the vacancy at Stamford Bridge - Pep Guardiola, Rafael Benitez, David Moyes, even former boss Jose Mourinho. Meanwhile, down at Chelsea's Cobham training base, on the leafy outskirts of London, Di Matteo was quietly setting about the task of restoring belief in a team who had won only once in their ...

Salomon Kalou admits Chelsea only started to believe they could win the Champions League after Andre Villas-Boas was sacked. The Portuguese boss was relieved of his duties in March after a disastrous spell at Stamford Bridge, with Roberto Di Matteo taking over temporary charge.
AVRAM GRANT: 'He is the man. Roberto Di Matteo is responsible for the biggest achievement in Chelsea's history.' AVRAM GRANT: 'What he has done is unbelievable. He has led the team out of a miserable season to win the Champions League and the FA Cup.' AVRAM GRANT: 'Chelsea only got to the Champions League final because of the players everyone calls 'old' AVRAM GRANT on 'OLD-GUARDS': 'Chelsea scored with their first corner of the match and who scored it? Didier Drogba.' Look, Andre Villas-Boas started to play without them and what happened to results?' AVRAM GRANT: ''Frank Lampard loves getting into the box, he loves scoring goals but when Bayern Munich were dominating what did he do? He dropped back and played more defensively. How many balls did he win in midfield and play forward? Lampard followed orders to play for the team.' AVRAM GRANT: 'So you can go on and on about getting rid of the Old Guard at SB, those players are more important than at any other club.'
Bayern MunichChelsea Preview: Of home comforts and a fighting spirit May 19, 2012 · It is the ultimate meeting of the perennial bridesmaids. For years on end, German powerhouse, Bayern Munich have excelled magnificently on the domestic scene but have fallen just short on the continent. The Bavarians last won the Champions League in 2001, two years after a great miracle handed it to Manchester United. The last time they came close, a certain Jose Mourinho inspired Inter Milan to victory in 2010. Having exacted revenge on the Portuguese, Bayern have booked a date with history, at their very own Allianz Arena, with Chelsea. Who ever gave Chelsea a chance? Struggling both in England and Europe under Andre Villas-Boas, they piled up one bad result after another. Until Roberto Di Matteo came along and changed their season dramatically. It all started with that sensational turn around against Napoli at Stamford Bridge. Since then, the Blues have made little matter of the might of Barcelona. They almost w ...
When we step out onto the Allianz Arena on May 19 it will be the culmination of a rollercoaster ride that has seen us go from the brink of exiting the Champions League to within 90 minutes of winning it. To track Chelsea’s road to Munich you have to head back to last September when we kicked off our campaign with a 2-0 victory over German side Bayer Leverkusen. A solid draw at Valencia was followed by a 5-0 trashing of Genk at Stamford Bridge but the wheels came off as we followed up a 1-1 draw against Genk with a 2-1 defeat at Bayer Leverkusen that left us needing either a win or goalless draw in the final group game against Valencia and we got what we needed as 'The Drog' was unleashed and struck twice in a 3-0 victory. Napoli were next up in the last-16 and the side from Naples looked set to end Chelsea’s quest after Ezequiel Lavezzi netted twice in a 3-1 win for the Serie A outfit. The Blues returned home in crisis but boss Andre Villas-Boas was soon shown the door and replaced on an interim basis ...
Chelsea's date with destiny: the occasion when their Roman empire can finally achieve its aim. Comrade Abramovich fell in love with football when famously watching a Champions League match and everything since arriving at Stamford Bridge has been aimed at the lifting of that famously oversized trophy, the European Cup. He has been within an inch of the post, a slip of Luzhniki sod, and for a time that had looked like his last chance. An ever-revolving cast-list of coaches has been and gone since John Terry's moment of truth in Moscow. Since then, the players who took them to the brink of a dream becoming reality have aged and agued. This was supposed to be a season of rebuilding. A young coach with new ideas was hired to sweep out the Old Guard. Yet they remain, and Andre Villas-Boas is jobless, only recently reappearing as a possible suitor for the vacant Liverpool position. Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, Ashley Cole and Petr Cech take their place, but the suspended Terry will not, as penance for his stup ...
Chelsea's Old Guard: The decision to sack Andre Villas-Boas has been made to look an inspired one by Chelsea's players, with the Blues winning the FA Cup and making the Champions League final under the Portuguese's successor Roberto Di Matteo. However, I firmly believe it was Chelsea's players, specifically the so-called Old Guard, rather than Villas-Boas that was the problem. I don't doubt the former Porto boss made mistakes trying to change too much too soon, but I also don't doubt that some of the players did not try their hardest to make the changes work such was their disbelief and anger at being asked to do something different. The Blues have gone back to basics under Di Matteo and I can only applaud their turnaround, but there will come a time when Terry, Lampard, Drogba et al will have to accept they are no longer good enough to build a team around. But will their egos allow it? History suggests not.
Chelsea will lift the Champions League trophy, according to Nigerian prophet. TB Joshua. According to a report, the prophet who is also into football administration and currently manages Lazio's young duo of Edmund Ogenyi Onazi and Sani Emmanuel, prophesied after the sacking of Portuguese manager Andre Villas-Boas that Chelsea will play in the finals and if John Terry does not play the final, Chelsea will win it because there is a bad luck hanging on the head of the skipper. He made the prophesy before the semi –final clash with Barca. Terry was given his marching orders during that match. Yesterday, Chelsea won the FA Cup. Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua is not new to such prophesies as he prophesised Nigeria's failure to qualify for the 2012 Gabon/Equatorial Guinea African Cup of Nations, Zambia's triumph in the 2012 AFCON, Asamoah Gyan's last minute penalty miss during the 2010 World Cup and a host of others.
Roberto Di Matteo claimed his Chelsea Old Guard delivered the perfect response to their critics with the 2-1 FA Cup Final triumph over Liverpool - but flat-batted speculation over his own future on yet another day of triumph for the Blues at Wembley. Roberto Di Matteo: 'It's quite special' Goals from Ramires and Didier Drogba proved enough to repel Liverpool's late rally, with Petr Cech making an incredible save to deny substitute Andy Carroll, who had already pulled the Merseyside outfit back into the game. Inspired defensive performances from John Terry and Ashley Cole also helped Chelsea on their way to a fourth FA Cup success in six years, in a season that could yet end in Champions League glory as well. It represents an incredible turnaround from their mid-season slumbers, which resulted in the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas. But interim manger Di Matteo never did feel his club's stalwarts were past it. ''We've had a difficult season and a lot of criticism,'' he said. ''But the players responded today ...
Leading Chelsea out at Wembley for the FA Cup Final on Saturday will no doubt be a very proud moment for Roberto Di Matteo, but the next couple of weeks will only be a final flourish in his brief career at Stamford Bridge. The final against Liverpool is a great opportunity for Di Matteo - and no doubt a huge surprise too. Having been sacked by West Brom not much more than a year ago, the Italian is probably pinching himself constantly now he has an FA Cup Final and a Champions League final to look forward to. A great many managers go through their entire career without getting even close to such a stage. However, even if he does win either or both of these competitions, I don't think it will suddenly make him a great manager or the right long-term choice for Chelsea. If somehow Di Matteo does mastermind a victory at Wembley and then again at Munich's Allianz Arena it may prove very difficult to get rid of him - particularly given the affection that Chelsea fans hold him in following his playing days with ...
Who is Chelsea’s Player of the Season? Goal.com names the top three stand-out performers for the Blues in 2011-12 and then declares the overall winner. Have your say below! May 2, 2012 9:00:00 AM Juan Mata, Chelsea This season was supposed to be the start of a new era at Stamford Bridge under the guidance of Andre Villas-Boas , who arrived fresh from guiding Porto to Europa League success and was handed the chance to overhaul an ageing Chelsea side. Juan Mata , Romelu Lukaku , Oriol Romeu and Raul Meireles all arrived at the club with fans hopeful of challenging for silverware. But the Blues stuttered their way through the first half of the season, losing a number of matches and finding themselves well off the blistering pace set by the two Manchester clubs at the top of the table. However, unlike both United and City, they scraped through to the knock-out stages of the Champions League. Gary Cahill arrived in January with the aim of shoring up a leaky defence seemingly struggling to come to terms with ...
Chelsea stun Barca to reach final An heroic Chelsea survived the dismissal of captain John Terry to eliminate holders Barcelona 3-2 on aggregate and clinch a place in the Champions League final after an action-packed last-four clash on Tuesday in which Lionel Messi missed a penalty. The dramatic semifinal second leg at the Nou Camp ended 2-2 and meant Chelsea, chasing a first European title, will play Real Madrid or Bayern Munich in the May 19 final with the Germans holding a 2-1 lead ahead of Wednesday's Bernabeu game. A victory for Real would pit coach Jose Mourinho against former club Chelsea, who were in disarray just a few weeks ago. Tuesday's match first swung Barca's way when they opened a two-goal lead through Sergio Busquets and Andres Iniesta and Terry was sent off for lifting a knee into the back of Alexis Sanchez off the ball. The home side appeared in total control but Chelsea hit back unexpectedly when Frank Lampard sent Ramires clear in first-half added time and he lifted the ball brilliant ...
It’s been 10 years since Chelsea finished outside the top four, 10 years since they have failed to secure their position among Europe’s elite. This season could be that season but a recent resurgence under Roberto Di Matteo has seen them close the gap on their London rivals. Many things have been said and written on Andre Villas Boas and his shortcomings, I will not dwell on his reign nor jump to his defence. However, the fact is that upon his resignation he left Chelsea in fifth place, they now lie in fifth place. Maybe, just maybe, their crisis was overstated. In their interim manager, this Chelsea side have a man who knows the club and knows the team, they feel comfortable with this man, but ultimately they play for themselves, not Di Matteo. Now playing with the shackles well and truly off, Chelsea find themselves in a Champions League semi-final, and FA Cup Final and only two points off Tottenham who sit fourth in the league. Not bad going for a club in crisis. Just think about that for a minute. ...
