Mmmm, looking good there Calleti! The team had their second training today as we chug towards the end of the season. Continue reading
I thought I was going to be ok when Mou’s departure was made official, but as soon as I started reading the presser tweets, I found myself wishing & hoping the decision would be that he’d stick it out for one more season. My heart actually skipped a beat when I saw the tweet confirming the opposite. I really will miss Mou. Sure, this was a tough season with all the drama, but I like to look at the big picture and appreciate all that he did. Looking back, the good outweighs the bad, heavily. There were a hell of a lot more times that I loved Mou, than the times that I was unhappy with him. We won three trophies with him, learned to be unafraid of Barca, and believed that we could triumph when things were close to impossible. We didn’t always win, but Mou built a team that fought hard….and if they didn’t want to put up a fight, he was willing to put the fear of Mou in them at halftime. Aside from the technical things Mou did for the team, you gotta give it to him for the entertainment he provided as well. I don’t need to tell you guys how fucking hilarious the guy is, but people should remember the fun & laughs he gave us. We could always count on him, his crazy faces and gestures to lift our spirits when the matches weren’t going so well. I’ll miss his presence on the bench and hoping he would keep his legs shut when the cameras panned & zoomed him! To me, no one is going to be able to fill the space that he’s leaving in the club,I just hope I come to love the new coach, half as much as I loved Mou. So here is a Moupreciation post, full of some of what I think were Mou’s best moments with us. Feel free to share some of your own.
So yeah, before the presser, there was actually a training (one that Mou was looking very good at, may I add). The team is preparing for this weekend’s match with Real Sociedad. Continue reading
Chelsea wrapped up their season today, with both goals scored by these two hubba hubbas! Chelsea beat Everton, 2-1, and finished 3rd in the league.

We’ve got less than 24 hours to go until the FINAL kicks off! Training done? Check. Interviews & pressers done? Check. Tucked in at the hotel? Check. Freaking out? Check. Hopefully that last one is happening only on our parts, we need cool, calm, & collected boys who are ready to kick some ass tomorrow. I want to see big goals, a big win, and a big celebration! Make it happen boys, we need that trophy!
Look at that goofy smile. Winning the Europa League will do that to a person and it looks good on him! Chelsea beat Benfica, 2-1, with Nando scoring the opener & Ivanovic supplying the last minute winner. Congratulations to Chelsea FC & their fans! Continue reading
