Ashley Cole Tweets Farewell to Chelsea FC

Ashley Cole has finally put to rest all of the speculation regarding a potential contract extension with Chelsea FC through a series of tweets this evening. Cole has been at Chelsea for eight years and was arguably the best left back in the world for most of that tenure. He has been a tremendous servant for the club and has garnered a plethora of silverware to show for it.

We will miss you Ashley Cole, Chelsea legend, and bid you good luck in your next adventure whether it be MLS or another European club.

John Terry Signs Contract Extension For 2014/15 Season

For those who don’t know, since living in London a few years ago I’ve taken a rather fervent interest in football (soccer in the US) particularly in Chelsea FC as Stamford Bridge was located down the street. Therefore, expect some Chelsea related posts in the future. On that note…

Chelsea announced today that captain John Terry will be sticking around for another season as he’s signed a one-year contract extension through the 2014/15 season. The terms of the extension are undisclosed but there have been rumors of Terry needing to accept a reduced salary to continue on for another season. This upcoming season will mark Terry’s 17th with the first team, and 20th with Chelsea Football Club overall.
