Thank you Michael for your years of service - my highlights are the goal against Blackburn in the semi-finals of the FA Cup, and the Chelsea vs. Mancs match where he ran the show 2-1. I'm gonna miss him more than I thought.

Great servant and I feel under appreciated by many fans, hopefully someone will be able to step in where he left off or we could very well miss his presence this season. I really think we should of kept him for this season if claims are true that he was willing to take a massive pay cut. Anyways, probably has some of the worst luck Ive ever seen in football, but atleast he went down in our history being a key player in us winning the double.....even if that costed him a last shot at the WC with a very young promising team....man such bad luck!

Oh, and you got my gf exited in Chelsea briefly which was massive.....but only because she thought you were hot! Still, was an impressive accomplishment considering how much she moans whenever football is on the TV!

didnt get the complete effection a player of his magnitude deserved, prob for that dive against us in 05! 1 of the most technically gifted players of the last 20 years, would love to have signed a couple of seasons earlier, as i dont think we ever saw the best of michael ballack, the player he was at leverkusen and bayern where he'd nonchelantly control the midfield like only a german could, then pop up with all types of goals. has anyone got a link for his goal against liverpool for bayer leverkusen in the cl?

Great job Gem, I'm looking forward to the third installment featuring Deco. :unsure:

Scotty, you are in for a surprise, that little man done more than he gets credit for (Didn't even BB have a half decent word last season when he came back in to the squad, though it could have been the drink talking)

Loving these Gem! Be good to have this every year.

PS; Could we have a f@*^ off Joe one too just to change it up a little!

er........................sorry boys but I was not a fan, especially last 2 seasons

yes he was a big personality

yes he had been a big player

yes he got some important goals

but thats it, poor touch, limited passing (all short or sideways), one paced, plenty sloppy give aways and fouls and commitment variable

take a look at barca goal in cl at sb, he bottles it nad doesn'y close down iniesta - its on you tube

all hype and posing

limited talent

there you go

He was a great player and I really enjoyed having him at Chelsea. I have fond memories of him doing an incredible job filling in for Lampard towards the end of Avram's season and destroying Man Utd at the Bridge.

Was just about to mention that Plok. Noone could ever question him of not having passion. I'd honestly say that match was one of the best wins we've had in years.

There are plenty on here who put him in the scapegoat pile, all sideways passes, silly fouls etc. Honestly they miss the point. I think it's credit to the man that he was able to adjust his game to suit our style. The United game was a perfect example of how he could dominate a game if need be, but rarely because of Lampard's presence did he have the oppurtunity, so he simply slipped effortlessly into a role that we needed him to play.

I'd honestly have kept him for another season, and I think we'll miss him more than many on here will give him credit for.

Sorry, mate, but you are just wrong in so many ways. But no matter, he's gone now.
