Chelsea Tickets

Chelsea FC have been one of the major forces in the English Premier League, and are currently the reigning champions. A surprisingly poor start to the 2015/16 season by their standards has put a successful defence of their crown in serious jeopardy. Yet since their formation in 1905 they have won the top flight of English football 5 times, the first back in 1955. Among their other major trophies are 7 F.A. Cups and a famous victory in 2012 in the UEFA Champions League. Such success, with 17 trophies since 1997, makes Chelsea tickets much sought after, particularly when their ground, Stamford Bridge, has a capacity under 42,000, significantly lower then some of their rivals.

Stamford Bridge has been Chelsea's home since the club formed, witnessing all the ups and downs in the years since. From club legends of the past such as Ron Harris, Peter Bonetti and Peter Osgood, to the current crop of Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and John Terry, Chelsea have seen many of the games top players pull on the club's blue shirts. The famed Champions League winning team, under the guidance of manager Roberto Di Matteo, included Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard, Petr Cech and Ashley Cole, with Drogba scoring the winning penalty in the shoot-out after the game against Bayern Munich finished level after extra-time.

Since 2003 Chelsea FC have been under the ownership of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. In that time he has hired a string of high-profile mangers, including Guus Hiddink, Carlo Ancelotti and Rafael Benitez. In 2013 he brought Jose Mourinho back to the club for a second stint, following a successful first spell between 2004 and 2007, during which time he won two Premier League titles. Mourinho's success in winning the league again last season cemented his reputation as one of Europe's best managers, as well as one of the most colourful.

As a result of last season's success demand for home game tickets has increased considerably and often Chelsea tickets are impossible to buy at the gate and sell at premium prices via third parties.

Based in West London and nicknamed The Blues, Chelsea's rich heritage was under serious threat in the early 1980's following a ground redevelopment. Bought by Ken Bates for a nominal £1 without the freehold to the ground at the time, the club was facing possible relegation to the third division of English football. Yet the club was stabilised over time with the team initially recovering under the astute management of John Neal. After initially struggling when the Premier League was introduced, Chelsea have since seen mostly success, with a host of top players, both domestic and international, playing for the club.

Liverpool F.c This Season

To the Reds, this is a particularly exciting season given the fact that they are participating in some major leagues. These includes the prestigious UEFA Champions League, English Premier League, FA Cup as well as the Football League. As it the norm, the season will run from the first of July 2015 to the 30th of June 2016 and there are great expectations from the stakeholders in the club as well as the strong fan base that follow the teams progress from all over the globe. Though things are not as per the expectations as per the moment, the team looks strong, and thus events are expected to change soon.

Seasons Performance

The performance of the team in the friendly pre-season games in the months of July and August matches saw the team have major success when they won five out of six games and got a draw of 1-1 in one of the games that were against Malaysia XI in Kuala Lumpur. However, when it comes to the major source of attraction for the season that is the English Premier League, the performance is not that appealing with the club having lost two games and achieved a draw in two of the six matches it has played. The performance, therefore, places the team in position 13 that is not that great and a goal difference of negative 3. When it comes to the to the Champions League, the club has played only a single game, and it has emerged as a draw of 1-1 against Bordeaux and this is considered a major achievement given the fact that the team was away. The performance is an indicator that there is a great deal of expectations from the teams this seasons which explains why Liverpool tickets for sale are selling out for almost every home game.

New Signings and top stars

As it is expected with any major team, there has been some transfers both in and out. Of notable interest is the transfer of the long-serving captain Steven Gerald to the LA Galaxy of the US. Also, the transfer that earned the team the most amount of cash is from Raheem Sterling to Manchester City at a fee of 35.2 million pounds.

For the in transfers, Christian Benteke from Aston Villa was the most valued transfer for the season to the club at a whopping 32.5 million pounds followed by a Brazilian Roberto Fermino from a German club 1899 Hoffenheim at a fee of 21.3 million pounds. The transfer of Benteke seems to be paying off as he has already scored two EPL goals. Other goals so far are single goals from Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana and Danny Ings.
