Adopted Frenchman Joey Barton doubts whether former England skipper David Beckham can have the same earth-shattering impact that he has had on Ligue 1. The Marseille midfielder said that if Beckham did manage to play against his side for PSG he would probably not be the "main concern" for their defence.

Come on Chelsea fans I want to hear from as many as possible on this. With no disrespect to Wigan or Reading, Newcastle is our first of the bigger games this season especially as we still have what happened at the Bridge towards the end of last season fresh in our minds.

Chelsea have started with two wins from two and will be looking to take another three points against Alan Pardew's good Newcastle side and as we all know, this is far from being a home banker!

Chelsea 4-2 Reading - Hard work - Credit to Reading.

For the neutrals it must have been a good game, for us it was another "typical" Chelsea display in a game that on paper, Chelsea should have won easily.

Now I mean no disrespect to Reading and their fans at all when I say that, but let's put things into perspective here. A newly promoted side come to Stamford Bridge on a Wednesday night, on Chelsea's first appearance at the Bridge since winning the Champions League and with plenty of attacking talent on the pitch, surely it's a home banker isn't it?

BRIGHTON 3-1 CHELSEA - CHELSEA'S 4-3-3 IS DEAD!

I am shocked and surprised by our performance yesterday and can't believe what happened with our defending.

Now I am normally the first to say "It's only pre season!" and to remind people to not jump to conclusions but after yesterday it's hard not to.

One thing is for sure, Chelsea's 4-3-3 system looks dead in the water now and should be disposed of.

France international striker Olivier Giroud is reportedly finalizing a transfer to Arsenal that the player himself has described as a dream come true.

Manchester City may not have enjoyed the most popular title celebration this week but that doesn't bother the club's players, who firmly believe that they can beat bitter rivals Manchester United to the crown next season.

Carlos Tevez stole headlines earlier this week when he held up a 'RIP Fergie' sign given to him by a fan during City's parade across Manchester.

During Man City's victory parade on Monday, Carlos Tevez gleefully held up a poster that read 'RIP Fergie' that he procured from the crowd. The message was a play on Man United manager Sir Alex Ferguson's response of "not in my lifetime" when asked in 2009 if his side would ever be underdogs in a Manchester derby and prompted a quick apology from City.

Over 100,000 people turned out for Manchester City's open-top bus title celebrations today and you just knew that Carlos Tevez or Mario Balotelli would do something to put the attention and focus of everyone on themselves and not the team.

With Balotelli back in Italy for medical checks after being named in his country's provisional squad for Euro 2012 that left Tevez to turn the focus on himself and he did not disappoint, holding up a cardboard tombstone which read 'RIP Fergie'.

With the pre-season now underway I've heard some supporters mention that tours over to Asia and America are actually doing teams more harm than good these days for several reasons.

One of the main objections is all of the travel involved. Some people feel players are simply getting tired out by travelling thousands of miles around the globe.

I have to say the news that Raul Meireles left Chelsea yesterday wasn't a surprise really was it? The only surprising thing about this was that he never ended up with AVB at White Hart Lane.

Meireles had been a long term target for Chelsea if reports were to be believed as recent summers past.

It's a question we have been asking for quite some time now isn't it. Well I say we have been asking, but it's mainly other people on here and family and friends I have that all say the same thing.

David Luiz without question is "World class" no matter where he plays. So comfortable with the ball at his feet (why wouldn't he be as he is Brazilian after all), is two footed, reads the game fantastically well and can pick a pass just like Leboeuf!

£9m Moses - A good deal or just someone to fill a space in our squad?

Victor Moses will finally sign for Chelsea this week in a deal worth around £9m after Wigan's Dave Whelan finally decided to let the player go.

Now for regular readers of my blog, you will know that when it comes to Moses, I am not 100% certain this is a good deal. I mean no disrespect to Moses as a person or a player in any way, I am just thinking that there are other "natural" wide players out there that Chelsea should be going for.

The Curious Case Of Nicklas Bendtner

Well, Nicklas Bendtner has walked back through the Arsenal door after his loan move to Sunderland ended and I'm sure many Gooners would prefer it if he just strolled back out of it again.
His exit could happen too if rumours that Borussia Dortmund are set to put a £2.5m bid in for the Dane are true, although I think that amount of money might just cover the price of his ego.

The Dynamo drew 2-2 with the Columbus Crew last night, coming back from a goal down late to equalize and then holding on late as the Crew came close to becoming the first MLS team to win at BBVA Compass Stadium. It wasn't the reaction match I was hoping for after last week's loss to New York, but it's a point and the Dynamo offense looked sharp, especially in the first half.
