Fans returning and the Champions League – Five things for Chelsea fans to look forward to in 2021

There are two months to go in 2020/21 but there is still a lot more football to be played throughout the rest of the year

There are two months to go in the 2020/21 season, which has been congested and hectic for pretty much every club owing to a later than usual start to the current campaign following the coronavirus enforced stoppage of 2019/20.

There has been an excellent start to the season which saw Frank Lampard’s side riding high at the top of the table before it all went pear-shaped. Five defeats in eight games saw the former manager lose his job and Chelsea drop right out of the top four.

Roman Abramovich, despite his huge admiration for Lampard and what he achieved as a player for the Blues and securing top four last season as a manager, had seen enough and wielded the axe, with Thomas Tuchel parachuted in to rescue things.
He’s done just that as well, going on a 14-game unbeaten run to start his tenure in west London, conceding a ridiculous two goals in that time and securing 12 clean sheets in 14 games.
Silverware remains a possibility as well, with Chelsea through to an FA Cup semi final against Manchester City on April 17 as well as the Champions League quarter final tie with Porto next month.
The important goal for Tuchel is to get Chelsea into the top four come the end of the season and anything else will certainly be a bonus.
There is still ample opportunity to create memories for Blues fans for the remainder of the year so here are a few things you can look forward to.

Getting back to stadiums

Premier League football has been played behind closed doors with no fans in attendance since “Project Restart” in June last year for the majority, although there was that one game in early December last year when 2000 fans were allowed into Stamford Bridge to watch Chelsea play Leeds.

England was plunged back into lockdown not long after and fans have not been back at Stamford Bridge since. It has been more than a year since the Blues’ home ground was full to capacity.

The Premier League is hoping that there will be scope to have fans back in stadiums for at least one home game before the end of the season but there is hope that for the start of the 2021/22 campaign, Stamford Bridge could be full once again.

Kai Havertz’s time to shine

Following a tough start to his Chelsea career since his big-money move from Bayer Leverkusen last summer, Havertz now looks as though he might be hitting his stride for Chelsea.

The attacking midfielder has been sidelined with injury and coronavirus this season, as well as simply having to adapt to a new country and league at the age of 21 and now he has had to go through a managerial change as well.

But, Tuchel looks to have found a home for Havertz as a false nine, with good displays against Everton and Leeds in the Premier League adding to a good outing against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

He has headed off on international duty with Germany this week and scored against Iceland in a 2-0 victory, finding his goalscoring boots once again. It all bodes well for Chelsea not just for the rest of this season but going forward into next as well.

The Champions League journey

If you had asked any Chelsea fan who they would have wanted their team to draw in the quarter finals then there would have been one answer that 99.9% of them would have given: Porto.

That’s exactly who the Blues drew in Nyon last week at the quarter final stage. Not only that, they also stayed on the half of the draw that means they wouldn’t play either Bayern Munich or Man City until a potential final in Istanbul in May.

Real Madrid or Liverpool await the winners of the Blues tie with the Portuguese side. It is clearly not foregone conclusion that Tuchel’s side will progress to the semi finals of the competition but they certainly are heavy favourites to do so.

The transfer window

There is not a transfer window that goes by without Chelsea being linked with a host of star names, maybe the last January one amid the covid pandemic and financial repercussions, but this summer is expected to be different.

Not that loads of cash will be floating around as clubs will still be feeling the pinch after more than a year of football behind closed doors.

Chelsea have already been linked with Erling Haaland in what would be an absolute blockbuster of a move were it to happen this summer. The Blues very much want to sign a striker in the window and perhaps a midfielder as well.

The transfer window is always an exciting time for supporters but it may well be a case of players also making way for new ones to arrive.

Breaking: What God told me about Sunday Igboho, Nnamdi Kanu – Primate Ayodele

Published

on

The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has revealed what God told him about the Yoruba Fighter Freedom, Sunday Adeyemo, popularly known as Sunday Igboho and the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu.

The cleric said that God revealed to him that Nigeria will break up, but not through Nnamdi Kanu or Sunday Igboho.

The cleric said some powerful forces like the spirit of Nigeria’s nationalist; Abubakar Tafawa-Balewa would lead to Nigeria’s peaceful break-up, Daily Post reports.

He warned that if Nigerians fail to appease Tafa-Balewa’s spirit and these other powerful forces, the country will break up peacefully.

Primate Ayodele, however, urged the government not to ignore the cries of IPOB and those agitating for the Oduduwa Republic because that would also lead to the country’s disintegration.

According to Ayodele: “The spirit of Igbo is no more in Nigeria, and since their spirit is no more in Nigeria, the country will break peacefully.

“Some people like Tafa Balewa were killed, the spirit of Tafawa Balewa is fighting, why will we not appease his spirit? Instead, we say Nigeria should be in unity; we can’t be in peace or unity again.

“Nigeria will just be facing one problem to another. There will always be problems and that is the fact.

“We need to realize that Nigeria needs many prayers to survive this situation and for sustainability. The moment we ignore God, then the country will collapse.

“It’s not this IPOB, Oduduwa, that will break Nigeria. There is a powerful force that will break the country if we don’t appease it.

“If we don’t do what is necessary, Nigeria will break. Many people don’t want it, but when you go to the divine realm, do you know what is going on there? Many people have died as a result of injustice in Nigeria, so what is going to happen is that Nigeria will break peacefully without fighting or making noise.

“IPOB are making points, the people of Oduduwa Republic are also making points, and if the government neglects these, it will happen suddenly.”

“Nnamdi Kanu is not the person who will actualize this, not that he will die, but the thing will happen in a surprising way.

“Everybody will keep quiet, but some forces will stand to be fighting it, saying no. Two things are involved: either Nigeria is restructured, which we know will not favour many people or break up. It’s either we go back to true federalism, or we break up; any of these issues is going to be better for the country, so said by God not by man.

“Another thing is that only God can stop Nigeria from breaking up; the pathfinders of this country are tired of our co-existence.
