There's only so many times that I can come on here and dig out the same players for the same old things.

What we saw on Monday night was an example of some extremely positive signs of the future ahead for Chelsea.

We all know that players like Lampard, Malouda, Essien and Drogba have been far from their best - God only knows I've written it enough - but they will always come good for a bit longer, form is temporary class is permanent.

The Torres Show didn't start with the happy beginning we have all been hoping for this past week, but he can't be blamed for what was all in a performance where we were tactically weaker than our opponents.

It is a painful moment when you look at a game against your nemesis and have to hold you hands up and say that defeat was probably the deserved outcome.

Lot's of blame is being placed on Ancelotti's tactics once more, but surely his tactics don't involve rendering a whole midfield anonymous.

Wow. It's easy to forget there is a match against Sunderland on Wednesday night what with all the excitement of the last four days.

The acquisition of Torres, a world class striker, and Luiz a highly rated centre-back have just flip reversed us from an ageing shrinking squad, to a versatile slightly younger one.
