Chelsea FC: A Few Of My Favorite Things


With the summer in full swing and another memorable Chelsea FC season in the books, here are a few of my favorite things from the 2014/15 campaign. We have already covered favorite goal and what I think needs to be upgraded in the squad but here are a few more reflections on the season.

Favorite Moment In The League: The 1-0 win over QPR was my favorite moment. The Blues were frustrated most of the game, as QPR was battling to stay out of the drop zone and were playing like it. Ultimately, the win was another great example of Chelsea FC’s desire to win by any means necessary, as they sacrificed style for the sake of three points in a tight and cramped Loftus Road.

Chelsea knew they didn’t want to go into games against Manchester United and Arsenal with a draw over QPR, and in the end they found a way. Perhaps it was fitting that Cesc Fabregas, with his facemask reminiscent of “Zorres” of years past, secured what was a really ugly but deserving win for Chelsea.

Favorite Player: The ageless wonder, John Terry. He provided more than intangibles for this Chelsea team. He won us games on more than one occasion, the most notable being the Capital One Cup Final where he was a very deserved man of the match. While he wasn’t bad last year, he wasn’t our best defender as that would probably have been Gary Cahill or Cesar Azpilicueta.

However, in a contract year, Terry showed why he can still be valuable to the club while showing that he wasn’t ready to give up the armband. Mourinho rated his performance against Arsenal a few weeks back as his best ever, and that he deserved another one-year contract. Now the only question about John Terry is how long he can keep up this incredible level of play.

Favorite Jose Mourinho Quote: This is a simple one, “boring is ten years without a title”. Jose Mourinho isn’t afraid to take jabs at Arsene Wenger, as last year he stated that the Arsenal boss was a “specialist in failure.” No matter how hard he tries to hide it, Wenger is always rubbed the wrong way by Jose’s comments and it’s no wonder he’s never beaten him in his career.

After being labeled boring by the fans and players following a 0-0 draw against the Gunners, Mourinho’s quote summed up what the sport of football is all about, and that playing beautifully has done Arsenal no favours. A manager who’s well-known for his soundbites, that was by far the best one of the season.
