Chelsea FC Win EPL 2016-17

Chelsea FC Win EPL 2016-17 after dominating most of the season. All of the efforts exerted not only by the players of Chelsea in training hard but also their manager in showing his continuous support for the team seems to have paid off well, when they successfully brought back the championship from winning the EPL this year. This victory of the team allowed them to earn their 5th title in the last 12 years. This is the reason why they are considered to be one of the country’s best team, especially now that they have proven it yet again with their 1-0 score against West Brom.

For this victory of Chelsea, there is no doubt that their manager, Antonio Conte has played a very important role, especially when he brought in Gianluca Spinelli to be their goalkeeping coach. Because of this decision of his, many people, especially the fans of the team has witnessed an improvement in terms of the performances of Thibaut Courtois this season. It was also a great move for the team to have signed N’ Golo Kante, who is known for doing the work of two men and bringing back David Luiz. On the other hand, during their winning run, Chelsea was also able to beat Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Everton and Manchester United and this equaled the record that were set by Arsenal in a single season.

Now, when it comes to the best players of the team for this season, Cesar Azpilicueta is included in the list for he has shown great versatility throughout the entire season, being given 5 position and being able to fulfill his job well. In addition to that, he is also the player who has produced more passes as compared to the other players in the Premier League this season. Apart from Cesar, Eden Hazard, dubbed as Chelsea’s Ronaldo, also showed a great performance. He was dubbed as the 2nd most fouled player in this season. Of course, we should also not forget N’ Golo Kante, who already won the Football Writer’s Association’s Award and the PFA Players’ Player of the Year Award.

On the other hand, the opponents of the team also did their best, although it wasn’t enough for them to be able to return in victory. Nevertheless, we also cannot deny the fact that they have great players as well like Harry Kane of Tottenham and Leroy Sane from Man City. However, although Arsenal do have Mesut Ozil, they have experienced a couple of bad results, especially when they were defeated by Chelsea and Bayern Munich. Also, while Liverpool has been doing a great job on the first half of the season, things have started to go wrong in the latter part of the season, with some of their players becoming injured.

All in all, Chelsea deserves to Win the EPL 2017. Nevertheless, all of the teams who have participated this season deserves to be given a loud applause. After all, they were able to give us a very good game and season overall. On the other hand, with the bar set high, let’s look forward on whether Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Everton, Manchester United and Arsenal would be able to recover next season. Chelsea FC Win EPL 2016-17, can they do it again next year?

MLS All Stars Win Helps US Forget About Gold Cup

MLS All Star Game 2015  MLS All Stars win helps US forget about Gold Cup and the disaster

of the US men’s team trying to find their stride.

On July 29th in Commerce City Colorado, before a packed crowd of over 19,000,

to watch the 2015 MLS All Stars take on an

 

English Premier League favorite Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs have been playing some preseason

matches here in the states and were a good match for our MLS band of rag tags. The MLS held

their own in the first half, with many good chances and Kaka making things happen for the MLS.

David Villa was magical with a great corner kick that ended in a PK for the MLS, then taking on a

well struck cross from Kaka, Villa redirected it into the back of the net for a 2 – 0 lead for MLS only 30

minutes into the match. Nick Rimando was the real man of the match this night, I know people

love giving it to offensive style of players, but Rimando stood on his head to use a hockey term.

Three huge saves from Rimando and many more he made look easy, but Rimando kept Harry Kane

and a well-balanced Spurs team out of the net til 37th minute, when Matt Besler fell down and Harry

Kane unleashed a rocket that most keepers won’t have even touched. Second half was mostly Spurs

controlling the field, but MLS gave acouple of runs at goal only to have the 45 minutes fall away with

all defense being the story of that half. Solid showing by the MLS, 22 layers say the pitch for the MLS,

two completely different teams per half of play, was very interesting to watch. Spurs controlled most

the match but couldn’t finish, and the MLS capitalized on their chances. Now Gold Cup, the US squad

needs help. Very inconstant play, the defense looks very confused under pressure, not like the back five

of our US women’s team. The offense just could not finish when needed, we look close to putting it

together, then falls apart. Are we going to press full field or half field, do we support the ball or run all

over the pitch. Just looked confusing the last 2 matches the US men’s team had in the Gold Cup.

TheSoccerInfo believes they will put it together soon, you can see the pieces, and the puzzle will be

solved soon. Come on boys, red, white, n blue blood all the way. Watch some video of the MLS

All Stars win helps US forget about Gold Cup and let’s get ready for World Cup 2018.
