Bethany England, Chelsea’s No.9 and main striker for the past two seasons, has signed a new long-term deal which will keep her at Kingsmeadow for another four years.

In those two seasons, England has scored twenty-six goals across thirty-three league appearances. Excuse me, I need to do something...




Please pardon the temporary misplacement of my professionalism. A neighbor has lent me a cup of theirs so I can finish this post.


During a loan stint at Liverpool in 2017-18, England worked hard to reach the levels Chelsea manager Emma Hayes demands, and has built herself into a goalscoring machine. In addition to being able to scan defenses to find their weaknesses, she has developed the wide-range of tools necessary to be able to take advantage of any opening. From goal-poaching to thirty-yard blasts with either foot, Bethany England is a nightmare to defend, and dream to support.

This also solidifies Emma Hayes’ plan to play her two world-class strikers in tandem, and for as long as she can. Sam Kerr, who, after being the National Women’s Soccer League’s leading scorer for three consecutive seasons, came to Chelsea in January with the global reputation as one of the best strikers in the world. Prior to the suspension of the league, Hayes has worked to get her two world domination-seeking strikers on the pitch together. The results were, um, astounding.

Bethany England’s new contract is as important to Chelsea’s domestic and European ambitions as the arrivals of Sam Kerr, Melanie Leupolz and Jessie Fleming. If England can maintain her form, then she will quickly join the conversation as the best in the world, particularly if she’s able to have similar success in the Champions League.

With this new deal Chelsea and England are ready to oh no it ran out BETHANY ENGLAND IS THE BEST STRIKER IN THE WORLD AND IF YOU DISAGREE MEET ME IN TEMECULA COWARD.
