Watch: Chelsea lift the Premier League trophy

New, comments

It had been far, far too long since Chelsea last won the Premier League. After taking three out of six between the 04/05 season and the double in 09/10, the Blues went four years without until this year. Which makes this moment just a little bit sweeter:

Winning the Premier League isn't nearly as difficult as claiming the Champions League trophy, but it's reflective of sustained excellent throughout a season rather than the combination of luck and quality which make for success in Europe. Being the best team in the country -- easily the best team in the country, no less -- is a great feeling, and nobody can argue that we've failed to deserve it.

There's room to improve next season, no doubt. But for now, let's spend a little savouring a rare moment to its fullest. It's been a very pleasant ride: Chelsea Football Club are Champions of England.
