A comprehensive win last night has got the press buzzing again, Chelsea are back in the title race.

So they say anyway, I think the jury is still out on that one. We have a lot of ground to make up, but finally a foray into the transfer market could help us achieve it.

As Yazz once famously sang, the only way is up.

After weeks of downtrodden postings and hiding from the world media, we are finally - hopefully - on the rise again.

Blackburn, not the most worthy opponents of course, could well have been the recovery we needed, the players may well have some belief back.

The heading of this piece shows how hard times have become in the past two odd months as a Chelsea fan.

Firstly nobody is sure now that we are capable of reviving our previous form - I'm pretty hopeful we can, and secondly I have resorted to one of the most overused cliches of FA Cup history to try and imply that the FA Cup will see us through our woes.
