    As there was no point made at the start of this thread, I'll make one now.
    I'm a chelsea supporter, and I have to admit that I'm surprised at the way Avram Grant has managed to get results at the club. He came to Chelsea complately unknown outside of his homeland, Israel, and has had some excellent results in one of the toughest leagues in the world. I still don't think Chelsea are consistently playing the kind of Football that Abramovich wants played, but if we make a couple of more decent signings, then we could indeed be playing some "Sexy Football" and hopefully still winning the games.
    Obviously, being the Transfer window Chelsea are being linked with everybody, yet again, hardly any of which (particularly big names) ever come to the club. I'd love to see some of the players who have been linkeed with Chelsea come, particularly Messi and Ronaldinho, but I don't see it happening. I still want to see Daniel Alves there though, hopefully Roman will stump up the cash for him no Mourinho has gone.

    I think Chelsea are real title threat.

    They have so many players out and are still just 4 points off the pace, plus the new signings, its scary.

    They have 16 games left, I could see them wining 13 or 14 if they get it right. Especially as their games against United, Arsenal and Liverpool are at home.

    I think United will win the league but I think it will be decided on the last game of the season.

    As for Arsenal, I think they will fall way back and finish about 10 points from the top, especially looking at recent results.

    And 4th spot to Everton, just beating Liverpool by a single point.

    yep its a three horse race... Chelsea, Man U and Arsenal..
    Liverpool are now fighting for the 4th spot.

    I also agree with you that Arsenal and starting to lose that 'edge' they showed at the start of the season,

    However man U and chelsea seem to be getting it all right in terms of results

    I have also been impressed with the results that everton are putting togather and even Man.city are picking up wins. This is going to be one of the tightest prem league finishes who have had for a long while

    Fer guss son's sake you must be Avram a laugh. No-one is taking Chelski for Grant-ed. The blHughes have a strong squad. My Redknapp would still be Arsene-l, but Sven Chelski's Jewel's shine the media will be O'Neilling at the alter. If they show their current Keaness they could be top in a Coppel of games. Then Juande they get off their McCleish the Moyes in Blue will be difficult to stop.

    Obviously I'm hoping that Chelsea can keep up the pressure, and keep winning games. We're definitely not out of the title race yet. If we keep playing the way we have recently, until we get a full squad back together, then I think we can dominate the rest of the season. With wins at home to Arsenal, Man U and Liverpool we could see ourselves in top spot come May. However, the last time we played the top two teams we didn't exactly look great.
