Feeling The Blues?

On the 31st of January 2011,  I woke up @ 5 am with butterflies in my stomach. What caused them you might ask? Torres was coming to Stamford Bridge. I was going to church with a friend on the day before and thought that I should check BBCFootball on the net for any rumours/gossips. There, lo and behold, was the rumour about a fifty million pound transfer between a London Club and a Merseyside club. I started drooling..who wouldn't want Fernando Torres in their team, even if he is the uneffective and unstriking Fernando Torres. @ 12am it was confirmed and we(the blues fan) were all in cloud 9. F9 is really a beauty and talent to behold.aaaahh. The rest as they say is history.

 Now, almost a month to that day, I'm thinking, was it a right choice by Abramovich? We have no doubts he loves Chelsea Fc, any1 who doubts  his love didn't watch last season's last premier league game @ home. The day we lifted the trophy after three years. We loved and still love Drogba, Ashley Cole, Bosingwa and co. They are just feeling the blues. A time when they can loose to any team, and when I say any team, any team e.g Wolves. Even though wolves did great by beating Liverpool, Man city and Manchester United, it was the worst defeat that I, a true blue, could ever take.

 I love football. Watching the game is a favorite past time of mine. I love watching the Blues play. Their story made me love the game. The fact that our very own Mikel Obi is one of their starting X1 has made me love them more. During pre-season, the Chelsea team went on tour to Germany loosing four of their six games. But they were easily forgiven  given the fact that 2010 was a World cup year and a disapointing one , I understood that it would be difficult getting back the form they had when they won "the double".

They lost the Community Shield to Manchester United. Doubts were raised if the champions could defend their EPl title.  But loosing to.....arrrggghhh. Let me stop here.

I pray EL Nino settles down @ SW6. But I won't be convinced until he scores his first goal. We would love it more if he scores them in the champions league.
