Chelsea have made serene progress this week, maintaining their five point advantage at the top of the Premier League with a hard-fought win over Blackburn and in beating Spartak Moscow at Stamford Bridge during the week, qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League at the earliest possible opportunity.
However, questions have been raised about the strength in depth of Carlo Ancelotti’s table toppers, as key personnel continue to lack fitness, and as the season heads towards the most intensive period of games to be played this season, the Italian may be re-examining his pledge not to sign any new players in January.
On the blogging networks there is speculation as to whether the Blues should pursue a move for Brazilian playmaker Kaka, the merits of Ancelotti’s transfer denials and praise of footballers with asthma playing at the top level of the game.
