B/R Interactive: Have Your Say... On Chelsea
As we edge closer to the Premier League, the "Have Your Say" countdown that focuses on the big teams of the Premiership begins with Chelsea. Fellow Chelsea fan and Bleacher Report's own Alan McGuinness speaks on Chelsea's transfer activity and The Blues' chances to win the EPL.

Do you think Chelsea are ready for the new season?

Definitely. We've added creativity to our midfield in Deco, and added quality to the right back position with Bosingwa. Equally as important, we have kept our best players such as Lampard, Essien, Cech, and Carvalho.
We came so close to winning three trophies last season with a manager like Avram Grant, so I'm eagerly awaiting what Scolari can do.

What deals would you have liked Chelsea to make?

Despite the strength of our squad, I would have liked to have seen us bring in a young striker, such as Huntelaar or Villa. Our forward line is quite old and I dont know if Pizarro is up to it.
Shevchenko can be a decent player for us if he is given a run in the side and stays free from injury. I also think we'll see a different Nicolas Anelka next season if he is played through the middle. Other than my slight worries with our strikers, I think our squad is well equipped to compete on a number of fronts in the coming season.

Who do you think is most ready to win the EPL?

Us and Manchester United. I think it will be a two horse race again, with Chelsea coming out on top, but only by a few points. Liverpool have brought in Keane, but I still think they need a new winger and Benitez needs to get his team to show some consistency over the course of the season. Also, Torres needs to score a lot more goals away from Anfield.

Arsenal have lost some good players and, for me, there is always a question over their mental toughness, especially with William Gallas leading the team. You can argue that they'll be stronger for the experience of last season, but I've been hearing the same argument for a number of years, and I remain sceptical.

Please feel free to debate and discuss the article.
