So the jury is out on Carlo Ancelotti at the moment, but now the question remains as to whether he can make his first season at Stamford Bridge into a success.
He certainly needs to keep improving his English if he is to get his tactics across to the team, and i bet he is spending most of his time concentrating on that right now, so has he got time to sort the team out?
Here is a comparison of prices available on Chelsea trophy hunting next season, and we’ll start with the odds on Chelsea to win nothing, although we all doubt that very much!
Betfred are not very generous and only off 4/5 (1.80) but Paddy Power will give you even money (2.00), but we won’t be betting on that one anyway!
For Chelsea to win the League and FA Cup domestic double is a reasonable 12/1 from Paddy Power, but an even better 14/1 from Betfred. Can Chelsea stop Man Utd winning a fourth title in a row?
Chelsea are one of the few teams to take the Carling Cup seriously, so it may be worth looking at the prices for both domestic Cups. To win both is 22/1 from Betfred and Paddy Power.
To win the FA Cup and the Champions League is only 28/1 from Powers but 33/1 from Betfred.
To do the domestic treble (League, Carling Cup and FA Cup) is 50/1 from Paddy Power but a better 80/1 from Betfred.
If you fancy them to win the two most important trophies, the Premiership and the Champions League then both bookies offer 20/1.
What about the clean sweep of League, Champions League, FA Cup and Carling Cup? (Well, we can dream can’t we?). Paddy Power will give you 200/1, but Betfred will give you a massive 350/1.
How confident are YOU feeling about the new season?
