While most of our supporters here in the Football Transfer Tavern can’t wait for the current international break to be over, our Chelsea fans can wait…unless their team decides to stop feeling sorry for themselves.
Going down to Stoke City despite putting up a good fight at the Britannia Stadium prior to the Premier League going on hold temporarily, it seems that whatever Chelsea do, they are doomed at the moment.
Facing Norwich City at home this forthcoming weekend, this looks a really winnable game for Jose Mourinho but he’ll be taking nothing for granted regarding Alex Neil’s side because is something can go wrong for the Blues at the minute, it is going wrong.
Mourinho will be back on the touchline for the game against the Canaries after serving a one-match ban during the Stoke fixture and Chelsea just need wins now to haul themselves back up into the upper echelons of the Premier League where they’re usually used to competing.
While the reports received rolled eyes in abundance earlier today, we read in the Daily Star that Chelsea and Arsenal are being alerted to the fact that London is apparently Lionel Messi’s preferred destination if he gets in even more hot water regarding those tax authorities in Spain.
Maybe even Messi would struggle to get the Blues out of their current predicament but given his links with the Blues right now, how would he look in Jose Mourinho’s team?
