24th November 2011
I sat watching the highlights over and over again, making notes then ripping them up again. The highlights of course was the Bayer Leverkusen match. The time was 12.48am i needed sleep.After yet another disappointing result, i knew and thought to myself that things can't carry on like this or i'll be out of a job, my system will take time to implement and i know if given time Chelsea will benefit in the long-term. A disappointing 2-1 loss left us 1 game away from the Europa League, the 1st time Chelsea have failed to qualify for the Champions League group stage, it will all come down to a crunch match against Valencia at the bridge in 2 weeks time. It wasn't that we played poorly, individual areas particularly on the 1st goal but the 2nd we conceded was the bitter blow that we did not want or need considering our recent poor run of form. As i turned on sky sports news, Valencia had demolished Genk 7-0 filtered through, all i thought was wow! Do i need a change of formation? Do i need to ditch the high line? So many questions but i had to get this right before the clash with Valencia
2nd in our Champions League group which on our paper when you look at the squad we should win it quite comfortably. 5th in the Premier League, it just simply isn't good enough for a club the size of Chelsea
I will pretend to be AVB in this story after the shocking start to the season as you will follow my attempts to turn Chelsea's season around.
The Premier League table above is the same in-game even to goals for and against using fmrte. After you have edited the table you will need to go on holiday, and by the following weekend the points and table will have updated
