Blackburn runs in with a loss of a long time manager. Might affect their game a bit. Players to watch- Santacruz, Derbyshere and Pederson..

Chelsea still don't seem to utilize the oil money usefully. A great manager in Scolari is a gain but i wonder whether Bosingwa is worth 16 million. They did justice to Makalele by selling him to PSG. Players to watch- Deco, Ballack and Kalou..
