Chelsea, written off after the sacking of Luiz Felipe Scolari, could still make this the most glittering season in their history.
And if they do, says captain John Terry, they could yet bag the biggest prize of them all – Guus Hiddink's signature on a permanent managerial contract.
In what could have been a season to forget, the Blues have reached an FA Cup final against Everton, are still in contention for the Premier League, and are just five days away from a Champions League semi-final tie against Barcelona.
"With the Premiership everyone ruled us out half-way through the season," said Terry.
"We changed managers, and since the new manager has come in we've really turned our form around, our spirit and our work-rate for each other, and our performances."
Terry is certainly fired-up for the challenge, and he believes a record-breaking season for the club could entice the Hiddink, the club's widely-respected temporary boss, to switch the red of Russia for the Blues of London.
"We've still got a lot of trophies to play for ourselves. Who knows what can happen: if we go and win one, or two, or even three trophies who knows what's going to happen.
"[Hiddink] has definitely been a breath of fresh air since he's come in, and everyone is bouncing off him and playing very well."
And, as always, Terry's never-say-die outlook is showing no sign of abating.
"We'll keep going until the end," he said. "We're now in the FA Cup final. And in the Champions League we've obviously got a tough draw against Barcelona. But we're right in the thick of things now, and in good form coming into the back end of the season. So we'll definitely take where we are at the moment."
