    I decided to take over chelsea and try something different.The first thing that crossed my mind was to create an all english side.Now this was going to be a difficult task as i had taken a side filled with expensive foriegn players DROGBA, SHEVCHENKO ETC.So somehow i had to get rid of the players and make sure i made enough cash to build a new squad of english talent. Here's who went

    OUT

    I had problems getting rid of a few i.e Shevchenko and Ballack as their wages were so high i loaned both to barcelona hoping to put them in the shop window.

    So everyone's gone and now i need fresh blood heres the english talent i decided to snap up

    IN

    Obviously it was going to be hard to get gerrard, rooney and ferdinand but i was happy my signings.

    So i had my squad and was raring to go i decided to begin with a 4 4 2 and got off to a flying start

    My perfect start continued and i flew into a lead at the top of the premiership and easily through to the knockout stages of the champions league with defoe and bent especially in great form.

    Things then began to crumble somewhat injuries to the in form and great strike partnership of bent and defoe had something to do with this. I was knocked out of the f.a cup by Aston Villa and began to slip away in the title race to Arsenal and Man U.

    I had to think hard and decided in a change of formation to get things going again.As goals for bent dried up i had a new idea and it produced the goods.

    Here is what i decided on

    Change

    it produced great results and got the best out of defoe

    my fortunes changed and the form continued as i lifted the league cup

    final

    things were now going great i wizzed to the champions league final with ease taking out bremen, barcelona and ac milan respectively on my way to facing lyon in the final.I set up a fantastic end to a great premiership season.Arsenal had crumbled after i hammered them which left me top with one game to play and man u second.My final game saw the visit of fierce london rivals west ham who are known to be party crashers while utd travelled to charlton while with no offence i expected them to pick up the points meaning i had to beat west ham to seal the title.with the league cup already in the bag confidence was high and here is what happened in a thrilling finaly to a great season in the best league in the world.

    upset

    UTD HAD WON 2-0............

    tragedy, disapointment, heartbreak call it what you want after such a trilling race and hammering west ham for 90 mins plus injury time it was over we had blown it(i think there was a case of a dodgy lasagne again)

    heres the final table

    league

    despite the hurt there was still the little matter of a champions league final against lyon.with confidence low after blowing the title i needed to pick my boys up for this one.

    heres what happened.......

    joy

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS some pride was restored thanks to the fantastic defoe

    class

    my player of the season was obvious!!!!!!

    so i look back on a great season and despite throwing title by winning the league cup and the champions league im very satisfied.with amount of change in the squad it was always going to be difficult but i take great pride in my achievements with a fully packed squad of just englishman "GOD SAVE OUR QUEEN"

    next season i aim to win the quadrouple and will continue my only english policy

    heres my squad so far for the new season and money is still available

    squad

    Meh, might try to make an all Dutch team one day, but it wont be in the Dutch League. Playing in the EPL with 11 Dutchmen...(I bet Wenger's done it with Frenchmen :()

    simply fantastic, i probably wouldn't have the guts...mainly because getting 11 portuguese champions league material players is hard :p

    it's not that fantastic, I've made a CL-winning all-italian team with Sampdoria and an almost all-scandinavian CL-winning FC Kobenhavn team, it only had 2 non scandinavians. With Chelsea's finances, it should be even easier...
