The Blues Chelsea F.C.

Chelsea F.C. (Chelsea Football Club), also known as The Blues or previously as The Pensioners (London FC), is an English football club which plays in the Premier League and is headquartered in the city of London. The club was founded by H.A. Mears in 1905, and has its own stadium, Stamford Bridge, which can accommodate about 41 841 spectators, located in Fulham, London.

Chelsea have spent a lot of history in the world of English football, and having success as much as two periods, during the 1960's and early 1970's, then in the late 1990s to the present. Chelsea have won four Premier League titles (1954-55, 2004-05, 2005-06, 2009-2010), six FA Cups (1970, 1997, 2000, 2007, 2009, 2010), four League Cups (1965, 1998 , 2005, 2007), and two Cup Winners Cup (1971, 1998).

The first manager was John Roberson (1905-1906). Chelsea won the Premier League (Premiership) in 1955 at the Ted Drake's tenure as manager.
Chelsea return to Premier League champions 50 years later, in 2005, the tenure of manager Jose Mourinho (2004-2007), who was fully supported by national oil billionaire Russian owner, Roman Abramovich.

In the same year (2005), Chelsea also won the Carling Cup by beating Liverpool. Subsequently in 2006, Chelsea won the Premier League. And in 2007, Chelsea won the Carling Cup again after beating Arsenal 2-1 and won the FA Cup after beating Manchester United 1-0 through extra time.

But because of some poor performances at the beginning of the competition 2007/2008 coupled with the discrepancy with the owner, Jose Mourinho finally resigned as manager, and was replaced by Avram Grant the former Israel national team manager.

Grant at the beginning of the coaching, many people are out of my eyes. However, Avram Grant led Chelsea to be able to treble the runner-up in the Carling Cup before losing to Tottenham Hotspur by a score of 2-1. Followed by a runner-up under the English Premier League Manchester United and was runner-up in the Champions League after losing 6-5 on penalties from Manchester United. But these achievements are considered not good enough so that Grant had been fired at the end of the season.

In late January 2009, replacing Chelsea coach Avram Grant with Brazil, Luiz Felipe Scolari. However, Scolari is also unable to provide satisfactory performance for Roman Abramovich. So at the end of April 2009 suffered the same fate with Grant. Chelsea manager vacant position was filled by the time the Russian national team coach, Guus Hiddink, until the end of the 2008-2009 season. At the end of May, before leaving Chelsea, Guus Hiddink gives good memories to take Chelsea's FA Cup fifth.

Beginning 2009-2010 competition, Chelsea announced a new manager Carlo Ancelotti is, with the contract for 3 seasons. Provide direct Ancelotti Chelsea won the title with the 2009 Community Shield after beating Manchester United on penalties. Victory in a penalty shootout was a first for Chelsea since 1998, when Chelsea face Ipswich Town in the League Cup.
At the end of the season 2009 - 2010, Chelsea won the Premier League and FA Cup, which is the first achievement in the history of Chelsea. Chelsea is also a club that managed to get a record seventh title wed. (Double winner).

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba managed to get the Golden Boot (top scorers) with a notch 29 goals. In the final game of the season 2009 - 2010 dated May 9, 2010, Chelsea humiliated Wigan to score a landslide 8-0 with Drogba scoring three goals. Chelsea also won a record is absolutely 100% against all the big four EPL teams (Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal).

Carlo Ancelotti Chelsea sacked in May 2011 after a 1-0 defeat of Everton in the final game of the season 2010-2011.
Currently the position is filled by a former manager of FC Porto coach, André Villas-Boas.
