Chelsea had such a great team back in the 2000s and the nostalgia is intense watching back some of the old clips and looking at just how incredible this era was.
Of course we had current head coach Frank Lampard as the pinnacle of these times, and John Terry at the heart of the defence.
But one player who was absolutely indispensable was left back Ashley Cole. In fact, Chelsea have never replaced Cole and it’s hard to imagine that they ever will.
He was one of a kind, just check out this short clip of him keeping a young Cristiano Ronaldo quiet during a Chelsea vs Manchester United match.
