Oops! Did I miss some names, maybe I did. Who cares! My article, my way.
Chelsea was founded on 14 march, 1905 at the rising sun pub, opposite to the present-day main entrance to the ground on fulham road, and were elected to the Football League shortly afterwards. Chelsea gained a reputation for signing big-name players and for being entertainers, although in the initial years, they made little impact. It was not until the appointment of former ‘European Footballer of the year- Ruud Gullit’ as player manager in 1996 that their fortunes changed. He added several top-class international players to the side, particularly Gianfranco Zola, and established themselves as one of England’s top sides.
In June 2003, former owner Ken Bates, who had acquired Chelsea for a nominal sum of ₤1, sold Chelsea to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich for ₤140 million, completing what was then the biggest ever sale of an English football club. After that the club never looked back. Over ₤100 million was spent on new players and Jose Mourinho, Chelsea won the treble in 2005. Chelsea holds numerous records in English and European football. They hold the record for the highest points total for a league season (95), the fewest goals conceded during a league season (15), the most consecutive clean sheets during a league season (10), the highest number of premier league victories in a season (29), the highest number of clean sheets over-all in a premier league season (25) and the most consecutive clean sheets from the start of a league season (6). In 2006 again, they were league champions, equaling their own Premiership record of 29 wins, set the previous season.
They also became the first London team to win back-to-back championships since the Second World War. The club’s 21-0 aggregate victory over Jeunesse Hautcharge in the UEFA cup winner’s cup in 1971 remains a record in European competitions. Chelsea player ‘Robert Di Matteo’ holds the record for the fastest goal in an FA cup final at Wembly, which came 42 seconds into Chelsea’s win over Middlesbrough in 1997. Chelsea won the last Premier League as well in 2009-2010 season.
Now I know the fans of a certain stupid club called ‘manchest-er united’ must be crying hoarse over their club being the best, because they have won the most leagues in England but don’t listen to those ‘red fools’. The change is upon us, the football world is going to witness a huge change with ManU going down the drain, with the departure of Alex Ferguson. I am just waiting for the retirement of the old man, god knows why he still comes to the playground. Maybe his wife should keep a better constraint on him, and his kids, sorry its now time for great grand kids, who should ask him to give their generation a chance too, and kindly sit at home. For the sake of everything that is pure and holy, retire Mr. Ferguson. The same happened with Liverpool in 1990’s. Chelsea will emerge as champions, shaking the whole hierarchy. The future belongs to Chelsea. Chelsea has won the FA cup 5 times and the Premier league 4 times, till now, and more are sure to come.
Players like Didier Drogba, Petr Cech, Frank Lampard and John Terry are the face of the football world today. John Terry (the best defender in the world) and Frank Lampard (the best mid-fielder in England) are the only reason why England can even dare to stand in World Competitions. Had it been for Rooney (probably the world’s ugliest player on the face of the earth), England wouldn’t have even qualified for the world cup. The only thing that Man U players are good at is cribbing about their history, of crying over the tragedy of the aeroplane crash in which their few players died, and they show everyone the stupid clock that has been stopped since then. For god’s sake get a battery, dude! Move that damn clock and take my advice, for the next time, don’t sit in local planes.
