Waking up on Sunday was accompanied with a warm fuzzy feeling that something momentous had happened the day before. Well that's what my head, stomach and less mentionable parts were telling me anyway. Winning at the new Wembley was done, the monkey was off the back, as Lukas would say and all that was left of an up and down but ultimately successful Arsenal FC season was to watch North London turn into a sea of red.

Mourinho facing difficult choice between Cech and Courtois - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

Chelsea fans will be expecting manager Jose Mourinho to expend major efforts this summer on solving the striker- or should that be lack of a striker – crisis at the club. It's certainly true that not having a front man capable of delivering goals on a regular basis seriously hampered the club's progress last term, but the other end of the pitch will also be occupying some of the Portuguese's thoughts as he seeks the best path to a solution of the Cech/Courtois conundrum for next season.
