Even as someone who doesn't like Chelsea I think this is the most exciting managerial appointment in the prem that I can remember. He does need to knock Terry off his perch pretty quick, though, and hopefully Abramovich will have learnt his lesson and stop tinkering in transfers and just leave Villas-Boas to get on with things.

WHAT A GAME!

Women's World Cup 1/4 final, England-France...
Keeper Karen Bardsley helped England alot, and I feared my compatriots would lose, til Elise Bussaglia scored some wonderful goal, 2 minutes from the end...
Then, Bardsley and her partners saving whenever France shot (that was every 2 minutes)...
And the spot-kicks, with my fave seeing her shot blocked by damned Bardsley...
Some relief in the end...
England-France : 1-1 (3-4)

Germany-Japan is quite boring up to now...
Well...

It may well wear off quickly, but I'm reasonably interested about the forthcoming season - far more than I have been the last couple of seasons. I honestly can't remember the last time I went to a match, just because I don't really feel emotionally attached to Chelsea as a team in the way that I used to. The players have some time felt more like a group of people playing for Chelsea, rather than a Chelsea team (does that make sense?) - the Chelsea shirt has seemed like the shirt that they wear when they play football, and they could just as easily pull on any other shirt and it would make no difference to them. Even the players that you used to feel would run through walls for the club (Terry, Lampard) don't inspire these days. And I just had to look on the web to check who else is in the squad these days to see who else I might have considered Chelsea through and through - that says a lot, don't you think? In fact, I could probably pass 75% of the regular starting eleven in the street (possibly do, actually, seeing as I only live about three miles from the training ground) and not know them from Adam. In the days when we were crap, I would've recognised every single one of them, and probably half the reserve squad too.

Yeah, Chelsea's just a bunch of tabloid fodder and a few add-ons these days, not a football team. Not a hero among 'em.

(Apparently, though, we have a player called Bertrand. Is that THE Bertrand?)

Aw, fuck it, the interest's worn off already. But I'm going to watch them in a pre-season friendly against Portsmouth next weekend. Maybe they'll inspire more than I'm expecting. But not too much I hope, 'cos they're a fucking expensive team to support, and I haven't got the finances to see them more than a couple of times a season.

Was there a point in that? I don't know. I think there was when I started typing, but I forget what it was now.

Yes, I'm playing with Torres for Chelsea, with a two year old toddler as manager.

It ain't that different...

I'm looking forward to seeing how Liverpool does this year. Suez is my favorite player in the league he, Andy Carroll and Charlie Adams will be there for the entire year hopefully. Delglish is also there for the entire year. If they can pick up some defensive help top 4 should be in their grasp. If Tevez leaves City do they become one year wonders? I'm rather new to this but I still can't see why Terry is so highly thought of? Chelsea's going to regret the move for Torres..

I don't think Tevez going will have that big an affect on Man City. They literally have the money to buy any player they want and if they seriously want to challenge for Champions League titles, they'll need to bring in better playerts than him. Tevez is always popular when he's happy at a club but his agent continually unsettles him.

As for Terry, a once very good defender who may be coming to the end of his shelf-life. He's a big presence in the team, maybe too big a presence and Villas-Boas is gonna have a job on his hands if he's even contemplating sidelining him.

Since Dalglish took over Liverpool, they definitely seem on the up. There seems to be 6 teams realistically looking at a top 4 finish next season (qualifying them for the Champions League: Man City, Man U, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool. I can't see either MC, MU, or Chelsea failing to make it but any one of Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool could make the other slot. A lot's gonna depend on the transfer window, I suppose.

(i can see Tevez going to Real Madrid.)

i can't see why Liverpool sold Raul Merelles and bought Charlie Adam! Just like they forced Alonso to leave by chasing Gareth Barry. I must have missed something...but yeah, they are definitely a team who will do well this season (2nd again?)

I read he's pretty close to signing for Corinthians. A bit odd seeing as how it'll have to mean a major drop in wages.

Supposedly the move to the Corinthians is to be closer to his family who have moved back to Argentina as they just can't adjust to England and the language barrier. Yes Man U will probably stay in the top 4 because of their defense and Mancini's schemes. I actually can see Chelsea as the odd team out as they're old and bound to be bickering over playing time.

Paul if you're out there are we still going to have the liquid league this year? I hope so.

Redkapp still refusing to let Mordic go as Chelsea just upped their offer.

Also did anyone else catch the USA women against Brazil? One of the best matches I have ever watched male or female.

That's becoming silly. I respect them for standing up to a team like Chelsea but once a player decides they want to go it's difficult keeping them at any price.

And yeah, Pauly, is Liquid Football being revived for this season?

Saw it too and I felt happy the US won.
I must say I don't feel the same now Rapinoe ended French hopes (to me, she's among the best players of the tournament; she's been excellent in all her games, and it relieved me seeing her on the bench; then she came on...).

I was going crazy at home wondering when the hell she (Rapinoe) was going to get into the game. Clearly the whole game switched when she came in. She was the reason they beat Brazil and now France.

More EPL rumblings Steward Downing also on his way to Liverpool and Snjeder has signed with Man U.

Paul are you out there? The Barkley Premier Fantasy Page is up and running.
I picked a team today to join a public league. Still hoping we're going to have the Liquid League as my ego wants to see if I suffer a sophomore jinx or I move up into the top 5 this year. Can't wait for the season start. Lots of switches made how will they work out. Will King Kenny bring Liverpool back to the top or is Sir Alex to cagey to be caught? Is Villas Boas the answer for Chelsea? Is Torres washed up? Will Ashley Young become a superstar at the Old Trafford? Is my man Jermain Beckford ready to bring Everton to new glory? Will Luis Suez win the Golden Boot?
