New Chelsea manager- André Villas-Boas

Waa….xtekejut pon bile Chelsea lantik André Villas-Boas pas pecat Ancelotti… hopefully he can bring success to this the way kite dok sebok2 ckp ‘wei Chelsea angkat bekas pengurus porto lah’ tp kenal ke korg???haha..ok b4 kite g lebih mendlm jo kite tgk skit biodata mamat nie..

André Villas-Boas

Nama asal dia Luís André de Pina Cabral e Villas-Boas. Lahir 17 October 1977 so makne nyer dlm umur 33-34 gitu la kan.lahir pulak kat Ulu Yam silap2x..haha lahir kat Loreto do Ouro parish of Porto.. nenek dia nie English tp nenek2 ats dia nie asal berasal Portugese.die nie becakap boleh tp "flawless English" la skit…dah kawin makne nyer wat girl2 tu xde makne nyer nak tegedik2..bini die Joana Teixeira kawin br g tahun 2004 ari tu..n dah ade 2 org ank pompuan….
[He is the youngest manager in history to win a European title and the manager with the highest transfer fee in history of 15 million Euros]->statement tu je kite dah tau yg die nie bakal jadi  jutawan..haha..xde la so die nie very2 talented person la bak kate org win 4 trophy with Porto fc 2010/2011 . The former Porto boss, who won the treble in his first season with the Portuguese outfit!!! nak bukti?  Sedikit story time dia kat Porto dulu:

When Jesualdo Ferreira left Porto, his name was also linked with the job at Estádio do Dragão, and Villas-Boas was finally announced as their new manager on 2 June 2010, having been presented on 4 June.[9] On 7 August 2010, he won his first trophy when Porto beat Benfica 2–0 in the Portuguese Supercup. He followed this with the Portuguese Primeira Liga, UEFA Europa League and Portuguese Cup titles.
In his first season as coach, Villas-Boas set the following records:
By winning the UEFA Europa League on 18 May 2011, he is the youngest manager ever to win a European competition, at 33 years and 213 days of age.
The club record for the most matches across all competitions unbeaten (36). This record was previously held by José Mourinho at 33 matches. Part of this streak was completed by the previous coach of FC Porto, Jesualdo Ferreira.
  • Ø  The most wins in Europe in one season by a Portuguese club (14)
  • Ø  The most points in a 30-game Portuguese league season (84)
  • Ø  The highest number of consecutive wins in the Portuguese league (16)
  • Ø  The biggest margin over the second placed team in the league (21)
  • Ø  The only team to win the Portuguese league without being beaten aside from Benfica in 1972/73.
On 3 April 2011, Villas-Boas won his first Primeira Liga, five rounds before the end, by defeating second-place Benfica 2–1 away at the Estádio da Luz in Lisbon, becoming the third youngest coach to win it, only behind Mihály Sistka (1938–39) and Juca (1961–62). It is the second time that Porto won the Portuguese league by beating its rival at its home soil, the first time being 71 years ago, in the 1939–40 season when Porto clinched the title by defeating Benfica at the Estádio das Amoreiras.
On 22 May 2011, Villas-Boas won the Portuguese Cup, equalizing Tomislav Ivić (when he won 4 titles for Porto in 1987/88).

On 21 June 2011 Villas-Boas tendered his resignation as manager of Porto.The day after, he was appointed as the new Chelsea manager.

Yang menarik nyer die nie bkn pemain bola tahap pro pon..stakat main estate jer..itupon main time friendly lawan kilang kicap..sempat la score 3 biji..itu pon gol nasib keper silap tangkap..haha

Sedikit story career die dlm ke’coach’an:

At the age of 16, Villas-Boas (who was always a Porto supporter) lived in the same apartment block as the English Bobby Robson, who was managing FC Porto at the time. Following a debate between the two, Robson appointed Villas-Boas to Porto's observation department. Curiously, Villas-Boas had argued that Robson should play Domingos Paciência more regularly, the future coach of S.C. Braga who Villas Boas would defeat in the 2011 Europe League final to make history.Under the guidance of Robson, who was impressed with his fluent knowledge of the English language, he achieved his UEFA C coaching license as a minor at the age of 17 in Scotland. He then had a short stint as head coach of the British Virgin Islands national team at the age of 21, before he moved onto a career as an assistant under the management of José Mourinho at Porto, another protégé of Robson's. As Mourinho moved clubs to Chelsea and Internazionale, Villas-Boas followed suit.
Die punyer mentor xlain xbkn mentor aq gak iaitu Mourinho.caya sama lu..

Bile dah masok Chelsea die ckp 'The challenge for me is to keep winning' ..nampak beno Chelsea boleh menang 3 piala r musin 2011/2012 nie..confident is high! Kate aq la kan..

“No doubt the challenge for me is to keep winning, I am an individual who has that hunger for success and wants to keep it that way,” Villas-Boas told Chelsea TV.

“Don’t expect something from one man," he said, “expect a group dynamic of everybody getting together. Of the fans getting together, of everybody getting excited with the motivation that is around us and the new way of communicating and the new leadership.” Kate nyer lagi la kan…

Bagi aq la kan..byk Chelsea nie kne improve…hmm..malas nak pening2 aq nak bg pendapat la kan..dr segi tactical André Villas-Boas should try a new formation because 4-3-3 is a formation that has been used by mourinho and other manager..only Ancelotti used variation formation[it upon lepas beli Torres. He also should scout for a new player right now! My opinion 4 player is enough..first aguero-kun or Neymar as a young striker.kolou should be sell to another team because he cannot give a lot of goal to the team..drogba is passing out of age..following with anelka..torres? out of mind la..for midfielder the best is sneidjer from Inter Milan..he is the best midfielder in the world..another candidate maybe javier the way don’t forget the talented teenage JOSH McEACHRAN!!..lastly for the winger the best choice is DANI ALVES from Barcelona to play alongside with david luiz or alex..Develop young player la bro..xkan sorg je kot mampu?! And others thing you think by yourself la k..jual2 la player yg xbg sumbangan tu..mcm Henrique Hilario, Paulo Ferreira, Yossi Shai Benayoun, Jon Obi Mikel, Zhirkov, Salomon Kalou n Florent Malouda. Bawak masok palyer mcm aguero,neymar,sneider, pastore,bale,dani alves..dah!!!xyah byk2..mantap beb..jgn simapn sampah byk2..wat busuk jer..

Pe2 pon tahniah kat André Villas-Boas. Hopefully die dpt la menang trofi kat Chelsea nie..kang radang plok ABRAMOVICH…haha

Lagi info ttg Andre Villas-Boas

Andre Villas-Boas returns to Chelsea after a gap of just under four years.
He was our scout responsible for assessing opposition teams throughout Jose Mourinho's time in charge of the team which was between the summer of 2004 and September 2007.

He remained part of Mourinho's staff when Inter appointed the ex-Chelsea manager as their new coach for the 2008/09 season, allowing Andre to extend his experience of working in Europe's big clubs and experience more trophy success as the Italian club won the Serie A title.

Shortly after the start of the following season came the chance to move into management in his own right, the offer coming from Portuguese club Academica from the city of Coimbra. Raising the previously struggling club up to 11th in the table by the end of the season and into a League Cup semi-final impressed Porto sufficiently for Andre's former club to give him the senior coaching position with less than one year's experience of that role. He did not disappoint them.
The club returned to the type of silverware haul they enjoyed under Mourinho, winning the Portuguese Super Cup at the start of the season and progressing to win a domestic league and cup double and the Europa League by beating another Portuguese side, Braga, 1-0 in Dublin in May. Aged 33, Andre became the youngest manager to win a European trophy.

At home Porto had broken their own record for games unbeaten at the start of the season in all competitions, previously set in the Mourinho era. They played 36 times before losing a group stage League Cup game. They went through the league campaign unbeaten, drawing just three games out of 30 and scoring 73 goals as they finished a record 21 points ahead of second-placed Benfica, earning praise for their attacking style of football both at home and in Europe.
Andre was the first at Chelsea to hold the opposition scout role as a dedicated, full-time position and was innovative in the use of up-to-date computer and video technology to brief the coaching staff and players. It played an important part in bringing back-to-back Premier League titles and FA Cup and Carling Cup victories to Stamford Bridge.
His involvement in professional football began as a 17-year-old when then Porto manager Bobby Robson moved into the same building in the city.
A young enthusiast for the sport, Andre soon enjoyed conversations with the highly-experienced ex-England manager. With an English grandmother, he spoke the language to a very high standard which also helped his work when he moved to Chelsea.

He was invited along to Porto training sessions and Robson recommended his new protégé travel to the UK to take courses. He became the youngest person to gain the FA's coaching qualification.

Robson then made Andre the youth team coach at Porto where he remained until Mourinho's arrival seven years later, when he began working in the role he fulfilled at Chelsea first time around. Porto won two Portuguese League titles, the Portuguese Cup, the Uefa Cup and the Champions League before the coaching team moved to London in 2004.
 so harap2 la  zaman kegemilangan Chelsea akan bangkit semula dibawah pemerintahan rejim Andre Villas-Boas nie..wa die hard fan Chelsea mengucapkan slamat maju jaya..harap2 Malaysia menang lawan Chelsea 4-2..haha

D7000 review


The Nikon D7000 is a powerhouse camera at an excellent price. It offers a huge range of features that will make shooting quicker and easier for the experienced shooter, with lots of customizable options and quick control access. However, we did find that the images it took were a little soft, and the higher ISO settings were rather noisy.

The D7000 is Nikon's most advanced camera at any price. The facts that it sells for RM4100 make it a no-brainer, which is why it's sold out. The D7000 is Nikon's best DSLR ever.

Among the many things I love about the D7000, in addition to how much better and faster it handles than any other Nikon DSLR (and I also own a professional Nikon D3), is that the pictures I make with the D7000 simply look better than what I've ever gotten with any other digital camera. The effects are subtle, but as a prolific photographer, I see that the colors are simply better, especially under difficult light under which my D3 just doesn't look as good.
The D7000 has the highest linear resolution of any Nikon DSLR, and more overall resolution than any other Nikon under RM5000. The Nikon D7000 has technical performance better than every other Nikon DSLR priced under RM5000, and handles better than any Nikon DSLR, regardless of price.
The D7000 certainly replaces the old D300s, at a lower price for even higher technical and ergonomic performance.

The secret inside

Currently the second highest resolution sensor in Nikon's DSLR lineup, the D7000's 16.2MP CMOS offers a standard ISO range of 100-6400 and 1080p HD video recording. NEF (Raw) files can be recorded in either 12-bit or 14-bit quality.

Brand new in the D7000 is a 39-point AF system. This is the Multicam 4800DX sensor...

The D7000's shutter is tested to 150k actuations - the D90's shutter, by contrast, is tested to 100k actuations. 
The focusing array, as seen through the D7000's viewfinder - all 39 points indicated here for clarity. This is 12 points less than the system used in Nikon's D300S, but 28 more than the D90. Of the total 39 points, 9 are cross-type.

A pentaprism distinguishes the D7000 from it's lower-end cousins the D3100 and D5000, which use pentamirror viewfinders. Pentaprisms are heavier, and add to the cost of the camera, but offer a brighter viewfinder image.

Although not a 'new' feature as such, the D7000 is a much more capable video camera than the D90 and D300S. As well as quality and sound options it is also possible to trim movies in-camera (which isn't an option on the D90).

The D7000's Fn button can be assigned to a range of different functions, including a viewfinder virtual horizon display, framing grid and as a shortcut to enable use of one of 9 non-CPU lenses.

New in the D7000 is a fine-tunable 'Auto2' AWB setting, designed to give slightly warmer color rendition.

The D7000 provides a virtual horizon type electronic spirit level - shown here in Live View mode. It can also be displayed in the viewfinder 'on demand' (using the Fn button) at which point it takes over the exposure compensation bar.

In-Body AF Motor

Just like the D90, the D7000 features a built-in lens motor for driving older screw-driven lenses. This feature allows you to drive the AF of older AF-D lenses like the cheap Nikon 50mm f/1.8D, which lack a built-in AF motor that all AF-S lenses have. 


This motor is a great feature to have because it opens up the number of lenses you can use on your on this body, especially in the area of fast prime lenses.

U1 and U2 Instant Recall Modes

The D7000's U1 and U2 positions finally address my biggest beef with Nikon, which is the lack of any fast way to save and recall complete banks of camera settings.

With all my other older Nikons, it takes too long to reset a camera to go from people to landscape photography, so I keep one camera for each kind of shooting. With the D7000, I now have two cameras in one, each recalled in the flick of the dial.

Gone are Nikon's two sets of four stupid settings banks, which took as long to select as not having them at all, and they never locked or could be saved anyway. Good riddance to bad rubbish!

The U1 and U2 modes are easy to set in MENU > SETUP > Save user settings > (select U1 or U2) > Save settings, and the camera's settings are burnt into that spot on the dial.

My white balance and trims, exposure compensations, exposure modes, AUTO ISO minimum speed settings, flash modes and everything else I want in each setting follow along, and instantly recall as I set either on the dial. This is even better than Canon, whose C1, C2 and C3 settings remember everything, but Canon's Auto ISO can't be programmed to higher speeds to optimize it for action as I do on my Nikons.

Better than Canon's C1, C2 and C3 positions on their mode dials, Nikon's U1 and U2 settings save whatever tweaks you make to them, even if you turn off the power, and then reset to your personally preset defaults any time you switch to a different setting and return! Yay! This way if I have to tweak a white balance it stays that way for the duration, and next time I select U1 or U2, I'm back to my personal defaults. I love it!

If you want to make a permanent change to either of these settings, simply make the changes while in the U1 or U2 position, and then MENU > SETUP > Save user settings > (select U1 or U2) and you're done.

Hopefully the D700X and D4 will have at least four or five U settings in place of the AUTO and SCENE positions. (Hey you hackers: feel free to disassemble Nikon's code and fix this. When you buy a D7000, there are no firmware click licenses or stickers to prohibit reverse engineering.)

Two Card Slots

One of the biggest reasons I love shooting my professional D3 is because I get free, live backup of everything I shoot because I record it to two cards simultaneously.

I can download and reformat one card and not worry if I backup my computer that day, because if I drop my MacBook Pro into McGee Creek, it's all still on the second card in my camera. I never worry about backing-up until I return from the field.

I'll say this again: set card two as backup (MENU > SHOOTING > Role played by card in Slot 2 > Backup), and so long as you copy card 1 to your laptop each night, you can reformat and reuse card 1 the next day, and then if your laptop catches fire or your camera falls out of the helicopter, you've still got backup of everything you've shot on card 2 without ever having had to back up!

2,016-Segment RGB Meter       top

The D7000 has the world's first 2,016-segment RGB meter, which is Nikon's first upgrade since the spectacular 1,005 segment RGB meter of the Nikon F5 of 1996.

The number of meter segments isn't relevant; what is relevant is the intelligence programmed behind them, and Nikon's meters have always been decades ahead of anyone else's.

Canon still has no full-color RGB meters in any of its SLRs; most of Canon's cameras, like the 5D Mark II, still only meter in black-and-white!

Overall performance
The D7000 is solid, small and light, and everything just moves fast!
It's quiet, smooth, sweet and effective, even without using its QUIET mode. 

ISO go through review analysis

Handling mode


  • Good detail and dynamic range (even better in RAW)
  • Exceptionally low shadow noise in RAW files
  • Arguably the best high ISO performance of any current APS-C DSLR
  • Good build quality and handling
  • Maximum ISO of 25,600 st full resolution
  • 1080p HD video mode with basic editing built-in
  • Efficient Active D-Lighting
  • Comprehensive customization options
  • Large, bright viewfinder with 100% coverage
  • Fast contrast detect Auto Focus in Live View
  • Useful electronic horizon
  • Comprehensive feature set
  • AE metering support for up to 9 'non-CPU' Ai lenses (in A, M modes)
  • Twin SD-card slots


  • Tendency to overexpose in bright sunshine/high contrast situations
  • ISO button is poorly positioned, and cannot be assigned to any other control point.
  • Ditto white balance: poorly positioned, cannot be re-assigned
  • Exposure mode dial slightly loose, and easily knocked
  • Shooting mode dial can be awkward to manipulate
  • AF can be hesitant in poor light
  • Auto ISO function is confusing and poorly implemented (but no worse than any other Nikon DSLR)
  • Aperture not adjustable in manual mode in live view (and won't stop up/down in any mode until exposure).
  • No live histogram or exposure indicator in live view/movie shooting.

People verdict

Nikon DSLR users have been waiting a long time for the D7000, not so much as an upgrade for the D90 but as a hint at exactly what Nikon is planning to do with its higher end DSLRs. From what I have seen in the D7000, they shouldn’t be disappointed. The improved build and handling make the D7000 feel solid, in much the same way as the D300S, and there is of course the new AF system, too. While the specification of the metering system is also improved on paper, there are still a few minor creases to iron out. Hopefully, this can be done easily and quickly via a firmware upgrade.

If you don’t factor in the 39-point AF system, which has fewer points than the D300S, then to all intents and purposes the D7000 feels more like a replacement for that camera. With this in mind, it should provide an excellent upgrade of the D90 and D5000, and for many D300S users, too. In fact, it should also make a good reasonably priced backup for professional photographers. Although the resolution is two million pixels fewer than on competing Canon models, the D7000’s image quality is comparable – I’m looking forward to a comparison test of the D7000 and EOS 60D. Nikon users should also be looking forward to seeing exactly how the new features of the D7000 are implemented higher up in the range.

 The Final Word

In most respects, the Nikon D7000 is an excellent enthusiast's DSLR. The camera produces great image quality in most shooting situations, and it shines in low light, providing (just about) useable images right up to its ISO ceiling of 25,600 (equivalent). It feels swift and positive in general use, even in live view mode, thanks to greatly improved contrast-detection AF - not a traditional strength of Nikon's DSLRs. The D7000's buffer is decent, especially considering the large size of its files, but not in the same league as the D300S. However, although potentially irritating to a D300S user considering a second body, this shouldn't stand as a serious criticism of a camera aimed essentially at the upper end of the enthusiasts' market. Ultimately, the D7000's specification is hard to argue with. A newly developed, 16.3 MP resolution sensor, 6 frames per second continuous shooting, 1080p full HD video and an abundance of customization options place this camera firmly into the upper regions of the mid-range market segment. In the final analysis, the Nikon D7000 is a very good DSLR which only just falls short of greatness. Nevertheless, the Nikon D7000 earns our second highest award and will make a great addition to the kit bags of current D90 users, D300(S) users and ambitious photographers that are new to the Nikon brand alike.
