2012/13 Chelsea FC Season Best Bits: Mata, Hazard, Oscar
The Deadly Trio. The Three Amigos. The Little Magicians. Whatever you choose to call them, no one can deny that these three players have been a revelation in Chelsea’s attack this season. Despite all being 25 and under, the three play together with an understanding beyond their years. When they’re all having a good day, there is no defence in Europe that can contain them. No Chelsea fan could have expected that they’d gel this quickly and file seamlessly into the team, helping their team’s creativity blossom.
“On the way to London:) Great game! Faith.”

“English fans love spectacular players like Alan Shearer and that is exactly what United have now signed. He has magic in his boots. The first thing you notice about him is that he is incredibly quick and very, very powerful for such a young man. He has great, close control and his technique is excellent. He believes he can do anything with the ball, and that confidence makes him very special indeed.” — Eusébio [x]
MY TOP 15 FOOTBALL MATCHES || Spain vs Netherlands (1-0) | July 11, 2010
“It was sensational, a historic moment for Spanish football. We’re not yet aware of what we’ve done––we will be after some time. It’s what we’ve wanted since we were little. It’s a special moment, much more moving than the European championship… It wasn’t easy but with luck we managed to win.” – Iker Casillas
1 year ago today, the most important match in Chelsea FC’s history took place. Playing a very strong Bayern Munich team at their own stadium, didn’t bode well for the West London club. But against all odds, at 1-0 down in the 88th minute, the man for the big occasion, Didier Drogba stepped up and his headed goal helped send this match into extra time. Ultimately the match would go all the way to penalties, despite Bayern being awarded a penalty in extra time, which Petr Cech saved incredibly. The last spot kick, which would win the Champions League for Chelsea was taken by Didier Drogba. No one could doubt him from the spot, and of course, he slotted the ball past Manuel Neuer and into the net. Chelsea FC were crowned Champions of Europe.
