Next season they will join Norwich and Swansea as new boys who are shaking up the Premier league and giving some of the old clubs something to think about.
The emphasis is slanted too heavily on the top 5 clubs and fresh blood will be welcomed next season.
Meanwhile the blockbuster, and one of the most important matches in the Premiership is set for Monday in Manchester.
The anticipation is bubbling over as the two giant clubs go head to head.
The winner of this local derby will be … Manchester!
Over the next few seasons Manchester will be a very busy place, especially on a weekend.
The clubs going down have a whole summer to rue their mistakes and plan for their return to this prestigious league.
However, there is only room for 20 clubs in the Premier League and it’s apparent which ones are going to follow Wolverhampton (already relegated). They are, inevitably Blackburn, Bolton or QPR.
Chealsea on the brink
Chelsea have come alive at the end of the season. They are on track and well prepared for their Champions League final against Bayern Munich after thrashing QPR 6-1 on Sunday.
Roberto Di Matteo has instilled confidence in his team and they are looking like champions again.
Good to see Torres smiling again after scoring a hatrick against QPR.
