The Loan Report: March 1-6

From week to week, the number of Chelsea loanees who receive considerable playing time can fluctuate. Over the last few years, Blues supporters will be familiar with the stories of the likes of Scott Sinclair and Ben Sahar, who couldn’t buy a place in the starting elevens of teams they spent a short spell with. It therefore comes as good news that this week, a considerable majority of those available…

We Are All Thinking It

It’s unspoken but it’s there, isn’t it? We are all thinking it, aren’t we? Come on, admit it. The win against the red half of Manchester, the stuttering return to team form, the increasing impact of Frank Lampard, the revelation that is David Luiz… Yuri back, Yossi getting closer. I could go on but I won’t… It all starts to point to one thing doesn’t it? But wait a minute….

FA Youth Cup: Chelsea 2-1 Watford

For the second year in a row, and the third time in four years, Chelsea have reached the Semi Final stage of the FA Youth Cup.

The addition of Tomas Kalas…

Home Win Sets Fergus Fuming

Chelsea continued their impressive home-record against Manchester United, as a David Luiz strike and Frank Lampard penalty completed the comeback after Wayne Rooney had given them the lead early on. It was the fifth anniversary of the death of Peter Osgood and Carlo Ancelotti’s men paid a great tribute to the ‘King of Stamford Bridge’ with a thumping victory. Carlo Ancelotti made only one change from the team that started…

The Harding Perspective: Manchester United

This game, without question, is pivotal for both sides. For United it gives them a chance to hammer home their title credentials; for Chelsea it is a chance to not only creep back into the top four but signal their intent for the remainder of an underwhelming season. With Chelsea’s switch to a flat 442 last week, Ferguson will have a few more questions to answer before he sets his…

The Loan Report: February 21-27

Daniel Sturridge continues to make the headlines in the latest instalment of The Loan Report as he scored his fourth goal in as many games on loan at Bolton. Elsewhere, Jack Cork also found the scoresheet in another busy week of action for Chelsea’s youngsters. We’ll start with Sturridge, who has hit the ground running under Owen Coyle, and having earned a starting berth with his impressive finishing, he has…

Under-18s: Chelsea 3-0 Ipswich Town

Chelsea’s strongest Under-18 team of the season led the way to a 3-0 victory over Ipswich Town on Saturday morning ahead of Wednesday’s FA Youth Cup Quarter Final.

Taking the opportunity to try out…

Transition NOT Revolution

I was getting ready to go to work the other morning and got fed up with Mrs Frank Lampard’s face on DayBreak, so I had a flick around the channels. Now whenever I see Premiership Years on Sky Sports I always get nostalgic and giddy so I have to put it on. This was a particularly good one – the 2004/2005 season. José’s first season in charge and the title…

Chelsea Hot In Copenhagen

So that was easier than many of us expected! What with Copenhagen’s impressive home form this season, and ours erratic, the 2-0 win was more than many of us could have hoped for. Chelsea lined up with Torres and Anelka up front, in what turned out to be more a 4-4-1-1 formation than 4-4-2, with the Frenchman playing just behind the Spaniard. Ramires took the right midfield position, with Malouda…
