I love Chelsea; this is no lie. My love for the club has been even before I hit adulthood. Amongst the reasons I was drawn to Chelsea in the beginning was because of the fighting spirit in the team. We do lose games, but it’s not our thing. Even after we lose, we bounce back stronger and better. There’s a hunger to always win, through thick and thin.

Like any top team, we have our top players, but we never depend on these players to win. Present or not, we win games because we know we must, and that is the difference between us and other top clubs. At Chelsea, we have notable names like Hazard, Willian, Pedro, Fabregas, Costa and more, but even in the absence of these big names, the team still wins matches.

Against Stoke City, our star player, Hazard, perhaps the best in the league was unavailable due to injury, but that did not affect the outcome of the game. Against all odds, we still grabbed a vital win, and it wasn’t even a forward player that won the game for us. That is what makes us different. We have that fighting spirit. We have a winning mentality, and every player is an attacker. Of course, this mentality isn’t new, it always was there, at least, since Mourinho took over. We saw the same during the days of Lampard and the rest. When other teams struggle and lose games without their star players, Chelsea will keep winning with or without our star player. We’re not a one-man team, we have several big-game players, and that is the one thing I find amazing about our darling Chelsea.

What makes him perfect for this blog? He lives for Chelsea FC, in fact, I heard he sat in the middle of a road, and refused to go home after that bitter loss to Barcelona in 2009. Haha.
