This transfer saga segues another beacon of hope for Lampard’s squad to sort after crowns in the forth-coming season. He should up his game or shown the exit door. Chelsea fans expectations are high.
The Italian at the Goodision Park
A time Chelsea boss, Carlo Ancelloti assume the reigns of Everton following his shocking exit from Naples in December 2019. The former Parma player took the Toffes from the zone of relegation (18th) to a second place in the bottom- which considered being impressive of the experienced manager. In over twenty matches at the Goodison Park, Ancelloti won eight times, settling for six draws, and lost half a dozen.
Following the exit of Leighton Baines, Everton welcomed nine signings for the coming season, among which three were major signings. James Rodriguez is on another reunion with Ancelloti after he has played under the Italian in Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. The Columbian will add more spice to the middle third.
It would be expected that Ancelloti and his squad should at least qualify for the UEFA Europa plus, winning an English crown league since they might want break their twenty-three year wait for a trophy
The ‘Special One’ magic on Spurs

The Portuguese who had won major trophies in England,Italy,Spain and Portugal elevated Tottenham to the sixth position- winning eighteen(18) matches, had nine (9) draws and lost ten in all thirty-seven appearances.
As the 2020/21 season starts today, the Portuguese gaffer is expected to rejuvenate Spurs to winning big crowns at Tottenham Stadium. Though, the Londoners, at the moment, made five transfer signings at which former Manchester City goalkeeper, Joe Hart and Matt Doherty were major signing.
But the former Real Madrid manager needed a substantial striker, which means that Harry Kane days are numbered in the club. The last Spurs won an English title was 2008 in the then Carling Cup with Chelsea. 2-1 it ended.
Can the Special One win titles for Spurs?
