There are things that leave me feeling frustrated. Like a team of winners who appear not to have turned up, and who lose to a team of lesser skill and ability who put a lot more effort into the game. There are things that leave me feeling angry. Like a deliberate handball that robs a nation of a dream-fulfilling place in the World Cup. Or when the ball crosses the…

Chelsea sealed their first league and cup double with a 1-0 win in the FA Cup Final against Portsmouth, at Wembley Stadium. After hitting the woodwork five (yes, five!) times in the first half, Chelsea looked like they would pay when Portsmouth were awarded a penalty, but Petr Cech’s penalty save closely followed by Didier Drogba’s free kick, saw Chelsea close out a deserved victory. Chelsea were unchanged from the…

So the weekend began, a Friday night full of excitement and anticipation. I looked at the Chelsea team to face Wigan and I smiled. The little gremlin Doubt sat in the corner, tiny and huddled. It was a shame I did not notice the evil glint in his eye or I would have done something about it then. Something like watching a few vids of our triumphs on TheChels.tv. But…

Chelsea stormed to the English Premier League title by thrashing hapless Wigan Athletic 8-0 in the final match of the season. Manchester United’s 4-0 win at home to Stoke City was irrelevant, as Didier Drogba’s hat trick, Nicolas Anelka’s brace and further goals from Frank Lampard, Salomon Kalou and Ashley Cole rounded out a sensational victory. Wigan started brightly, but the Blues took the lead in the sixth minute and…

Chelsea has one hand on their first English Premier League trophy since 2006 after a straightforward 2-0 win over embattled Liverpool at Anfield. Yet again, Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard stepped up for the occasion, as a goal in each half proved more than enough against a limp and uninspired opposition. There was only one change to the side that thrashed Stoke City 7-0 last week. As predicted, John Terry…

Hands up who expected that one then? If you’re still sat there as normal, then I expect you’ll be like the majority of supporters who, before the game, saw this as a potential banana skin. With the long throws of Rory Delap renowned for causing unease in opposition penalty areas, and our not so good record of conceding far too many from set plays this season, the outcome of this…
