Chelsea were the revelation of the 2016/2017 Premier League season after a horrible previous season as they topped the league table for a while and didn’t show any signs of easing their grip on the top spot before eventually emerging as Premier League champions against all odds. Nobody saw them coming with Antonio Conte at the helm at the start of the season This is dedicated to them
If Chelsea FC were human, Antonio Conte would be a major part of the ‘CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM’! Performing duo functions as a brain and spinal cord. Carrying out his responsibilities and laying down the tactical blueprint for success with signals being transmitted by him like a neuron from the touchline to ensure his boys leave the pitch with maximum points. He would also serve as a spine as he would provide motivational Support for the team in winning, drawing or losing situations through his tactical awareness and tactical decisions to save the day.
Roman Abramovich and the Chelsea Board would be the ‘CIRCULATORY SYSTEM’. Providing financial support. Making key decisions at the top, providing and distributing funds in an orderly manner in wages and salaries for the smooth running of the Club.
Chelsea’s defense would be the ‘EXCRETORY SYSTEM’. Neutralizing and expelling wastes in the form of opposition attacks and goals week in, week out throughout the season which if not checked or countered, would bring about chaos and hamper the club’s ambitions.
The central and defensive midfielders would be the ‘DIGESTIVE SYSTEM’. Protecting the defense, breaking down opposition runs and attacks week in, week out and converting them into half chances and long or short ball clearances for the attacking midfield and strikers to feed on thereby bolstering the club’s points advantage. N’golo Kante would be Gastrin (Go do your research).
Chelsea’s Attacking Midfielders would be the ‘REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM. The likes of Hazard, Pedro, Willian, and co, creating chances, making decent runs, making key dribbles and providing assists from tough situations for the striker to slot in. Thereby resulting in the birth of goals! goals!! and more goals!!!
The Center Forwards would be the ‘RESPIRATORY SYSTEM’. They score the goals. No team wins without goals. Lack of goals might not suffice in earning a draw as the opposition can score. As they slot in the goals, the team, managerial crew, and fans would be able to breathe, compose themselves, heave sighs of relief and not suffocate or expire. It improves the overall performance of the other systems and enables the club to reach its goal in a season.
Finally. The Fans who support Chelsea would be the catalysts or enzymes. With their provided support from all continents, they speed up chemical reactions resulting in clean sheets, opposition mauling, trophy hauls, goals, etc. This will result in significant achievements yearly.
Let me add one more! No matter how comical it may sound. If Chelsea FC were human on that cold night at the Hawthorns, against Tony Pulis’ West Brom, who were hell bent on not letting Chelsea win the title in their ground, Michy Batshuayi would be the ADRENALINE, as his goal and winner spurred Chelsea fans, players and faithful around the world back to life as Tottenham Hotspur were doing a good job of putting the pressure on Chelsea as they racked win after win against supposedly difficult opponents.
Chelsea fans! KTBFFH!
