Chelsea are still a top club in Europe, but the Blues at the moment have reached a low point and will need to make moves to climb up to its peak before being left behind by the rest of Europe powerhouse.

From early 2000s to 2014, the Blues had a way to reach the semi finals of the Champions League, but such an ordeal might seem far for this current Chelsea side, and reaching the last eight might even be termed as a massive achievement for this current Chelsea.

Chelsea now struggle to qualify for the Champions League, compared to time past when qualification was a no brainer and was a matter of how far the team can go in the Champions League.

The 3-0 defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday night proved just how far out Chelsea are from the big boys in Europe, and Bayern Munich players were so confident of beating Chelsea that they had time to take beers and whiskeys before the game as revealed by Rock legend Jon Bon Jovi, who was staying in the same hotel as the German giants on Monday night.

Not too long ago, Chelsea were one of those teams that top sides want to avoid which isn’t the case anymore, and it only shows how much work Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has as he rebuilds a young and inexperienced Chelsea squad.

While speaking to BT Sport, Rio Ferdinand and Joe Hart tipped Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Manchester City as their likely teams to win the competition. This brought me to the thought: when will Chelsea return to this class?

  1. Until we believe in a particular Manager for more than a season, empower him and support his philosophy.
    Conte was too good, he left for the same reason as Mourinho two times, Strengthen with better option not 50-50 likes. Support my project-give me time to implement it, fail and find a way. Same as Sarri. Sarri though rigid wasn’t that bad but again not as better as Conte.
    Chelsea FC has to choose between a Strategy or a Business approach. If you look at teams that have maintained a high leve and also, as when Chelsea was a formidable force, excellence and quality wasn’t a compromise. For the last 10 or so years Business approach has been a key and so the dwiddling performance in the arena of the great and might.
    It was only a fool who would believe Lamps would go past Bayern. No way! Look at their attack alone and their youth. Kimmich Davies et al found the likes of Robben and Ribery and they picked much from them. See now, they are at their game. There must be a strategy for the young to integrate with the experienced for them to reach their maturity. Chelsea is suffering from the Arsenal syndrome, after the failure of a follow up in their unbeaten fit.
