If it’s possible to ignore a disappointing sixth-place finish in the Premier League, then Chelsea’s 2011-12 season has to be counted among the finest in club history. FA Cup title? Check.

Embroiled in drama both on and off the field, the Blues will try to move forward from the roller coaster of last season when their preseason American tour begins on today ( 6:30 p.m. on ESPN2) with an exhibition against the Seattle Sounders. A year ago, Seattle hosted Manchester United in its lone international exhibition and a 1-0 halftime game turned into a 7-0 rout by United. – AP
