Here we go, Here we go, Here we go.

Everybody loves a cup final weekend, it's tough to believe that it's now 13 years since a collective of blue strolled back down Wembley way after witnessing Wise going up to lift the FA Cup.

Since then we've been fairly regular visitors to the famous national stadium, old and new, and here is a potted history.

And it's back. Already within ten minutes of being crowned I struggled through a throng of Chelsea faithful declaring to the Fulham Road that is why indeed we are champions.

On three occasions we have knocked seven goals past the bewildered defences of Aston Villa, Stoke and Sunderland and to win the trophy by topping that with a spectacular 8 past Wigan on Sunday was the icing on the cake.

Surely now I will no longer be reading comments from opposing fans declaring that referee's decisions were the reasons we won the title. Or are 103 goals still not proof enough?

You may have read articles from both Lampard and Cech in the aftermath of the 2-0 victory against Liverpool where they have both stated we deserve the title this season, sentiments echoed from my blog last week.

Petr Cech maintained that this was down to the fact that we have taken all 18 points from the "big four" games this season - a feat achieved only by Chelsea in Premier League history.

Of course this is a major factor in Premier League success, but I think there are several more reasons why we are on our way to our fourth top flight title.
