Chelsea Win League Cup 2015

I’m a little late to the party but I couldn’t not write about Chelsea winning the League Cup yesterday, now known as the Capital One Cup. We beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Wembley Stadium in a game which was much more pleasant than our last outing against them on New Year’s Day. Goals from John Terry and Diego Costa (or perhaps a Spurs own goal) on either side of half-time coupled with a solid defensive performance proved more than enough in the end – including centerback Zurt Zouma filling in for Nemanja Matic in defensive midfield.

Not much more to say about this other than it feels great to finally win another trophy. It’s been nearly two years since we won the Europa League and for Chelsea that feels like an eternity. Barring a major collapse this should be the first of at least two trophies as we are comfortably atop the league right now, which will be a much sweeter trophy if and when it arrives.

KTBFFH!

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. He’s currently the fourth highest appearance maker at 621 games and that figure will only rise next year, especially if he’s able to maintain the scintillating form and center back partnership with Gary Cahill.
