Cech: Blues must learn lessons

Petr Cech has admitted Chelsea must learn from the mistakes of this season after they crashed out of the Champions League at Manchester United.

One big Bad period in chelsea's season has made everything impossible for them. Suddenly the players aren't good enough, like they were amazing at the beginnign of the season.

But their owner doesn't like this, he's paying money to win trophies. Can't argue with that as a lot of clubs are following the same policy these days.
