All not well in West London?

Unlike last season, Chelsea haven't hit the ground running. True, they've only played a few games, and also it's true many of their players were on World Cup duty, so perhaps it's a case of being slow starters this term?

However, during pre-season and the early games in the Premiership, they don't perhaps look as formidable as some had been predicting they would do with their summer acquisitions.

At present Chelsea have that square pegs in round holes look at about them. Last night they took on Werder Bremen in the Champions League, it finished 2-0 to the blues. The main talking point being, Ballack replaced Lampard as penalty taker. The German nearly bust the rigging with this second half spot-kick...

In his after match press conference, the media darling that is Jose Mourinho, explained why Lampard had been replaced by the German as penalty taker. Jose, it has to be said, looked a bit flustered, and dare I say, looks to be showing signs of pressure? Is managing Chelsea and its circus of big names getting to him?
