It is the song that really got Chelsea fans going in the triumphant last few weeks of the season. Here is a video of the Cesc Fabregas Magic Hat song being led by Cesc Fabregas and his daughter
Cesc Fabregas is magic he wears a magic hat
He Could Have Signed For Arsenal but he said no “F$%K that
He passes with his left foot, he passes with his right
And when we win the league again we’ll sing this song all night
We hope you enjoy the Fabregas magic hat song.
It has been a busy week for football, with FIFA seemingly lurching into their largest crisis in recent memory. However the usual rumours regarding Chelsea are still bubbling over quite nicely, despite Jose Mourinho stressing the desire to avoid spending large sums in the summer, something that young stars, such as Ruben Loftus-Cheek, will be hoping is true.
Petr Cech is reportedly free to speak with any interested clubs, according to his agent, Victor Kolar. Having lost his starting berth to the young Courtois, Cech is keen to move on in order to gain regular playing time.
FamousCFC.com Chelsea Transfer Rumour Analysis – Sometimes it can seem rumours are plucked out of thin air, this one however, appears an absolute certain. There are realistically only three or four keepers who are better than the Chelsea legend, it’s just a shame for him that one of them is Thibaut Courtois, who has had an imperious debut season. Cech’s departure seems nailed on to happen before the start of the season, with the most likely destination being either Arsenal or PSG. Manchester United may also emerge as contenders should David De Gea move on.
No Chelsea fan would begrudge him a move, even to a Premier League rival, after standing between the sticks for the clubs most successful decade in our history. And indeed, after his penalty heroics on “That night in Munich”, he has license to do whatever he pleases.
Chelsea look set to continue last seasons plunder of Atletico Madrid by signing the French winger Antoine Griezmann. The Frenchman has a hefty release clause of �46.3 million, meaning this deal would represent the vast majority of our transfer budget.
FamousCFC.com Chelsea Transfer Rumour Analysis – The right side of midfield has been primarily occupied by the industrial Willian for the past two seasons, however, there is a general sense that the Brazilian doesn’t offer enough in the final third, scoring only two goals in the Premier League this season. Antoine Griezmann on the other hand has scored an impressive 22, in Liga BBVA this campaign, the third highest in the league (No points for guessing the top two).
This rumour has been around for a while now, and given that Abramovich has made a habit of writing cheques to the coffers of the Calderon, it seems fairly plausible. However, given the hefty price tag, and the consensus that Juan Cuadrado should be given more time to make his mark on the right side, this could be one for the January transfer window.
The Belgian born striker has been rejuvenated under Tim Sherwood at the latter end of this season, helping Aston Villa to a rare FA cup final, and Premier League survival. A reported �32.5 million release clause has caught the attention of the Blues.
FamousCFC.com Chelsea Transfer Rumour Analysis – With Drogba set to leave the club after helping us to the league title, Chelsea will undoubtedly have to bolster our striking options once again. Whilst many fans will be hoping that young stars such as Patrick Bamford, and Dominic Solanke could be drafted in to the first team, Benteke would bring undoubted quality into the squad.
Benteke is very much a “Mourinho player”. Strong, good in the air, the Belgian striker would suit Chelsea very nicely, particularly given the current friendship the countrymen share.
The transfer rumours are still in a quiet phase for Chelsea particularly as there are only one or two areas that we are looking to improve this season.
Here are the latest Chelsea transfer rumours that are doing the rounds.
There is widespread reports that former Chelsea and Real Madrid coach Paul Clement is moving to England to manage Derby County. Although this is not a transfer story involving Chelsea directly, a Chelsea man at a Championship club could mean lots of loans between Chelsea and the midlands club.
FamousCFC.com Chelsea Transfer Rumour Analysis – This seems like a done deal and would be a great move to have a Chelsea man managing an English league club
Despite winning the Champions League in his first season the fans seem to have turned on Bale at Real Madrid and with increased competition for places he may be heading for the exit door.
FamousCFC.com Chelsea Transfer Rumour Analysis – This rumour is just speculation with no clear sources or new information but it is worth monitoring as Bale may be returning to the Premier League
Chelsea have a thing for buying players from Athletico Madrid having bought Diego Costa and Felipe Luis from there last season. The rumours are strong that the first signing of the summer could be Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann.
Who is he? Having come from seemingly nowhere he scored 22 goals in La Liga last season filling the shoes of Chelsea bound Diego Costa nicely.
The Metro reports that Atletico will not sell him for less than his release clause, which would make him an expensive acquisition but with the TV money this would not be out of Chelsea’s reach.
FamousCFC.com Chelsea Transfer Rumour Analysis – This is a strong rumour and is not going away, it would not surprise FamousCFC.com if this was done, although whether he will be happy being a back up player is another matter.
The season is not over but with nothing else left to win the Chelsea 2015/2016 planning starts now.
This summer is going to be interesting, mainly because the other teams in the league are going to buy in order to strengthen. Manchester City might need a serious overhaul and new manager, and Arsenal…will probably just buy more attacking players instead of what they actually need. The wild card is Manchester United, who might pose a threat under Louis Van Gaal next season if he can get the right players to balance his squad and fill the holes.
Chelsea however will see changes too. First, and most tragic, is Petr Cech leaving. I was hoping Cech would retire here, but he is a top 3 keeper, and so is Courtois. That situation can’t stay the same forever, and one of them has to leave. As much as I hate to say it, the team has to look to the future, and Courtois is young enough to be part of that future, Cech is not. He wants to play for a top team, and this summer will have plenty of offers. I will be sad to see him go however.
As I mentioned earlier in the post, we need some better cover for the center midfield and attacking midfield positions, so that suspensions and injuries don’t disrupt the team in the way they did this season. This need not be a massive influx of players, maybe one signing in each position should suffice, and then bring in several young players. Ruben Loftus-Cheek would actually be sufficient if Mikel doesn’t leave this summer, though I suspect the Nigerian might be on his way out.
He will also be missed, and he was always one of my favourite players at the club.
I’m curious as to whether or not Drogba will stay as a player. He provided some massive goals this season, but everyone could see that his age was finally catching up to him, and he didn’t have the legs to threaten as he once used to. I wonder if Patrick Bamford is brought in next season to provide a third option, or if Drogba will continue to play for one more season as third choice.
But I am glad him and Remy were brought in, because they scored massive goals when Costa was gone, and deputized ably.
Next season Chelsea 2015/2016, I would like to Chelsea retain the league title, and also win at least one of the domestic cups again. A league and cup double is always so satisfying. I also expect them to move further into the Champions League next season, ideally to win it. The squad we have is excellent now, and with some more depth, means we can rest big players to keep them fresh for the big CL games. I think this squad can handle the big guns next season, be it Madrid, Barca or Bayern, and there is no excuse for at least not making it to the semi finals.
This season actually saw two different versions of Chelsea. In the first half of the season, Chelsea played some really beautiful football. There was quick passing, chance creation, trickery, flair, speed, and good defending as well. It was pleasing on the eye and saw plenty of goals. However, January saw a different Chelsea side, that started grinding out wins slowly and methodically.
Whether it was due to fatigue, critical injuries or suspensions or teams adapting to their style of play, Chelsea fell out of the attacking rhythm they had developed in the first few months of the season.
But Mourinho knows how to get results, and he set his team out to win, and win they did. Consistently, methodically, one game at a time. It is this consistency that saw Chelsea win the league. The team were top of the league since day 1, and lost only twice all season, freak results that no one really saw coming. Some weak refereeing in big games meant Chelsea had to settle for draws with the big teams instead of wins, but those results ended up working out in Chelsea’s favour anyway.
But it was crucial wins against Everton, QPR, West Ham and Hull that saw Chelsea pull ahead of Manchester City, who had drawn level on points with Chelsea in January when the team lost 5-3 to Tottenham of all teams (Shocking right?). But as the second half of the season wore on, Chelsea pulled away from City again, creating another big gap in points.
It is typical of Mourinho sides, but this Chelsea side just know how to win. Whenever a goal was needed, someone stepped up and provided it. Whenever a good defensive performance was needed, the team dug in, rolled up their sleeves and got the job done.
Whenever a big a game was played in the league, Chelsea focused and kept their shape, using counter attacks to devastating effect. Nice performances are great, but wins are what matter, and Chelsea developed a knack of getting those 3 points every game, somehow, someway. That’s how champions are made, and that’s how champions stay at the top.
Yesterday Chelsea won the Premier League with three games to spare underlining the force of nature and hunger for winning at Stamford Bridge. This hunger extends beyond the first team and has permeated across the English game at a Mens, Womens and Youth level, even our loanees have been getting in on the act.
This Chelsea meme shows the dominance that the Blues have had in English football this season across all levels of the game.
Premier League Champions – won with three games to go, we are Champions for the first time in five years
League Cup Champions – As in his first season at the Bridge this was Mourinho’s first trophy that was followed up with a Premier League title
UEFA Youth Cup Champions – The U19’s beat Shaktar Donestk to win the UEFA Youth Cup as part of an exciting double for our youth team
FA Youth Cup Champions – For the second year in a row our u18’s won the most prized competition in domestic youth football with talented players such as Dominic Solanke starring.
Championship Player Of The Year – Patrick Bamford’s goals on loan to Middlesbrough earned him the player of the year award in the Championship.
Women’s Player Of The Year – Ji So-Yun won the PFA Women’s player of the year award and the Chelsea Ladies team sit top of the Womens Super League. Whatever level or competition across the board the blues are dominating.
Six Players In The Player Of The Year Team – Chelsea players took more than half the spots in the PFA team of the year – John Terry, Diego Costa, Gary Cahill, Branislav Ivanovic, Eden Hazard, Nemanja Matic
PFA Player of The Year – Eden Hazard took home the PFA player of the year award ahead of Harry Kane and co
What a brilliant season for the Blues.
At FamousCFC.com we are the most cautious and superstitious fans you could imagine, however after Leicester we cannot help but feel wholly optimistic and borderline celebratory.
It has been a long season and a nervy couple of month but it now seems that Chelsea are set to win the Premier League at a canter.
It is now a case of when and not if we will win the title as even if our closest rivals win all their games in the run in only Arsenal can currently overhaul the blues with 15 points to win and the Blues 13 ahead.
It is conceivable the Blues could lose their last four games of the season and still lift the trophy. Yet with three of our four remaining games at home it would be a brave man that would predict Chelsea will triple their number of season defeats.
Victory against Leicester means that a win at home to Crystal Palace would see the Blues win the trophy with three games to spare, which will be one hell of a statement given the jealous charge of “boring” being levied by rival fans.
Win It Against Palace
The hope among Chelsea fans will be that the league is won against Crystal Palace on Sunday giving fans an afternoon in central London to properly celebrate and be 100% sure that the job is done.
Another side effect of this would be that Liverpool have confirmed that they would give Chelsea a guard of honour should Chelsea have won the league ahead of the fixture between the two clubs.
Something that would be incredibly satisfying given the history between the two clubs and that Chelsea were instrumental in denying the scousers a title last season.
It should be a great day out and we look forward to a brilliant day in London and hopefully a party on the Fulham road.
It has taken almost a year but Cesc Fabregas finally has his own song from the Chelsea faithful to the tune of “My Old Man’s A Dustman”
The Cesc Fabregas song was doing the rounds before, during and after the Arsenal game and has caught fire since then with fans even bringing their own magic hats.
Here are the words
Fabregas is Magic, He Wears A Magic Hat
He Could Of Signed For Arsenal But He Said No F&*K That!
He passes with his left foot, he passes with his right
And When We Win The League Again We’ll Sing This Song All Night
Saturday’s game was huge for Chelsea and here are some videos of just before the end of the game and outside Stamford Bridge. The photo was taken just before kick off in the Matthew Harding Upper against Manchester United.
