Its just under two days until kick off, and whilst we may have had a taste of football through the Engladn team's travails and the Confederations Cup, nothing quite beats watching Chelsea! (Even if it is Hull!) What are you most looking forward too?
I personally can't wait for that 12:45 kick off to come - finally we'll be able to see how Ancelotti has managed to transform a team that were largely written off at the start of last season into Championship winners.
With Ronaldo, Tevez, Alonso, Adebayor and Toure all moving on and not being replaced, its time for us to step up a gear and really put the pressure on. Whilst we might not have had the marquee signing we were all hoping for (though there is still time... :) ) we have been strengthened in attack by the return of Pizarro and Shevchenko, who Ancelotti at least knows how to deploy, having had the best years from the Ukranian at AC.
How long will it be before John Terry gets to show the love he professes for the club and kiss his badge after scoring? How long will it take for Essien and Lampard to become the best midfield partnership in the Prem? How many goals will the rejuvenated Anelka-Drogba strike-force smash home? Only time will tell, but I can't wait to find out!
