And first to set the standard is enoch tobe
1 - What is your abiding memory of 2013?
On a personal note, my moment of the year was getting to know I'd cleared my semester exams. I'm studying to be an engineer, and it's a big deal to me.
On Chelsea related issues, it definitely had to be when 'one of us' was unveiled as the new coach. No contest.
2 - Who do you perceive was the best and most consistent Chelsea player of the year?
There were a lot of good performances from the lads; but my standout player in 2013 is Eden Hazard. The lad has grown in influence especially since the ball boy incident. I think he is the player most opposition are wary of, as the get multiple markers for him.
3 - Who scored your favourite goal of the year? (It can either be a Chelsea player or somebody else)
Again, Hazard. His curler at Old Trafford in the FA cup; turned the game and the season around.
4 - What is your biggest regret of the year?
Well this one is personal. Girls and trust issues. :P
5 - Who disappointed you most in the year? (It can be either Chelsea, or something else, related)
I wouldn't say a disappointment; unfulfilment, maybe. When Ba came in, he scored more often than the strikers we had at the time. That really raised expectations. But then he just fizzled out, just like that. Probably due to limited chances, but he definitely failed on his
6 - How do you see the season panning out with regards to Chelsea possibly winning a trophy?
A trophy this season would be tremendous. I really thought we had a chance at the COC, but then...
The FAC maybe. The EPL becomes difficult to predict after every set of games, but if we maintain momentum, we can finish well. The UCL has never been an easy guess. To win you need team spirit and cohesion, and with Jose who knows?
7 - Who do you reckon is in the running for the Chelsea Player of the Year award come April / May?
The players who've impressed the most are Hazard, Terry and Cesar. Those three have been immense in form and character. Also on the periphery, Ivanovich, Torres, Cahill, Cech, Oscar, Willian.
8 - Which of our growing band of youngsters do you reckon will make the grade first?
If Lukaku is considered 'growing youngster', he's the obvious option. If we're talking about the reserves, then Loftus-Cheek comes to mind. He's physical, technical, adaptive - an all-round player. Plus a lot of investment have been made on him already.
9 - Who do you reckon will finish top-scorer, for Chelsea, this season?
Hazard is already leaving everyone in the dust.
10 - Gaza into the crystal ball and predict one major event that will make front page news in the world this year?
I'm going to be prophet of doom here and predict that the crisis in South Sudan isn't ending anytime soon, unfortunately. The personalities in the centre of the action are rather too influential and powerful; sadly the ordinary man is ready to die for someone
influential from his tribe or religion.
