Chelsea have offered Didier Drogba a new £130,000/week salary to match that of captain John Terry. Scolari is adamant about the striker staying on, rather than going to Italy:

“I want him to stay 100 per cent. No, 200 per cent”

Carvalho Sticking Around

After weeks of rumors pertaining to moving to Inter with ex-manager Mourinho, Ricardo Carvalho seems more than pleased to be under Felipe Scolari. Carvalho will remain in talks with Peter Kenyon to determine a possible pay raise to meet the standards of his more highly paid teammates.

Pompey After Bridge and Wrighty

Harry Redknapp has expressed interest in Chelsea stars, Shaun Wright-Phillips and Wayne Bridge. Wrighty is looking like the more likely of the two to depart the services of Scolari, after a public statement from his father expressing his advice to leave Chelsea. Bridge might feel slighted by the prominence Ashley Cole has had in the squad. With only 19 appearences last season, Bridge may have been left feeling superfluous.

I love them both. I don’t know if it’s their big lips or their underdog fighting spirit, but I think a little competition is what keeps the team so strong. Second string is a tough shoe to fill, but overall for the team their presence is imperative.

UPDATE: Wayne Bridge Signs New Four Year Contract (Eating my words.)

For some reason it really bugs me what Roman has done for the club. I am no Chelsea fan and I realise he won you two League titles and got you to the CL Final, but he has also taken any respect, honour or history out of Chelsea and replaced it with money.

You shouldn't have to throw ridiculous amounts of money at a player to get them to stay, they should want to stay and play for the club and set their sights on the top of football. They way he has frankley ruined your club is disgusting and I hope to god the yanks aren't able to do the same at Liverpool.
