Not sure if he will do that good in England, not in the short timeframe that Chelsea will give him to work at it.

Time will tell for sure paull, but will Chelsea give him the time he may need is the question. Theyre not going to run away with the league like he did at Porto.

yep no chance of that, i think he MAY be the man to make chelsea an unstoppable machine again, but like you say he will need at least 2 seasons to do it, up to roman to give him that time though!

With the official hiring of Villas-Boas it looks like Falcao and Joao Moutinho want to follow him to Chelsea.

A Falcao signing would mean the end of either Drogba or Anelka, and might take them out of the running for Neymar (even though they are very different players) It may be time to cash in on Drogba and get younger up front anyways. Just dont know how he would pair with Torres in a likely 4-3-3 formation.

Moutinho would be interesting though because he is the perfect fit in the middle of that formation for Porto, but with Mikel and Essien in the way not sure how much burn he would get. Essien I guess could shift to RB in a more attacking wing system because Ivanovic does not fit that mold at all. Plus Bosingwa is all but assumed to be moving on and back to Portugal or Brasil.

Definitely an interesting signing, probably going to see some significant turnover on the Chelsea roster.
