A lot of age!
Seedorf, Gattuso, Nesta, Beckham, and Pirlo, to finish their careers at Chelsea! Maldini and Costacurta reconsider retirement. Peter Kenyon promises a good dental plan and monthly visits to the proctologist to massage the prostate. Metamucil bar anyone? Discounts to the West End?
OK. Required jibe gotten off.
Ancelotti signed a three-year deal worth £18million plus bonuses as Chelsea's newest manager.
This is a good move. Chelsea get an experienced coach who knows how to win CL championships which has become a symbol of annual angst for Chelsea fans. They must dread the inevitable derailment of their dreams. Well, Ancelotti won two with Milan even as Inter dominated the domestic titles.
Ancelotti is promising to bring loads of talent: Kaka, Ribery, Pirlo at the top tier. A level below: Adebayor, Alonso, and David Villa. Even Glen Johnson is in Chelsea's crosshairs.
Didier Drogba could be out the door. Juliano Belletti, Deco and Ricardo Quaresma will probably follow suit.
An exciting summer is promised.
