One Step Closer

Chelsea extended their lead at the top of the English Premier League to four points with four games to play, by defeating a spirited Bolton Wanderers outfit 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. As expected, Michael Ballack and Salomon Kalou returned to the lineup, the latter starting up front with both Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba. It was Anelka’s goal that proved the difference just before half time. A clash of heads…

Blues Get A Bolt-On For The Title

Chelsea have the opportunity to extend their lead at the top of the English Premier League to four points, by beating Bolton Wanderers tonight at the Stamford Bridge. Branislav Ivanovic may be fit to start, but Paulo Ferreira’s excellent form of late means he may well keep his spot. Michael Ballack and Salomon Kalou will both start in place of Deco and Joe Cole, whilst there could be further rotation…

Club Before Country, Martin

Martin O’Neill isn’t shy of a moan, we all know that. This weekend’s diatribe is aimed at everyone’s favourite man; John Terry, meaning that O’Neill is already very late to an already oversubscribed party. Yet it’s not the target of his outburst which has goaded a reaction out of me, but rather the nature of it, and the predictable reaction of the wider footballing public. Apparently, Terry should be publicly…

Another Year Another Cup Final

Chelsea have again reached the FA Cup Final by defeating Aston Villa 3-0 in the semi final at Wembley Stadium. Decisive goals from Didier Drogba, Florent Malouda and Frank Lampard proved to be more than ample on the day. Avram Grant’s Portsmouth will be our opposition, after they beat Tottenham 2-0 after extra time in the other semi. Drogba was the only change from the side that beat Manchester United…

Entertaining Villa At Our Second Home

Chelsea’s defence of the FA Cup reaches a pivotal stage at Wembley, with the semi final against Aston Villa. Still smarting from their 7-1 crushing at the hands of the Blues a few weeks ago, Villa must produce something altogether improved if they are to figure in the final come May. For Villa, James Milner is under an injury cloud, as is Richard Dunne, though the former is expected to…

Blues Back On Top

Chelsea took a decisive step towards securing the English Premier League by winning 2-1 at Old Trafford. In a dramatic match, Chelsea were deserved winners with goals scored by Joe Cole and Didier Drogba. Federico Macheda scored for United. Despite comments to the contrary, Carlo Ancelotti left Drogba on the bench for this match, preferring to keep the same side for the first time in his Chelsea career. Coming off…

Could Tomorrow Decide The Title?

Chelsea travel to Old Trafford for Saturday’s early kick off, where the result will have a large bearing on where the league trophy ends up this season. Heading into this match, United are top of the league by a solitary point, with Chelsea second and Arsenal third. Chelsea’s last outing was the 7-1 thrashing of Aston Villa last weekend, whilst United’s was the last gasp 2-1 defeat in Munich against…

Blues In Seventh Heaven

Chelsea demolished Aston Villa 7-1 in an amazing display of flowing football. Frank Lampard netted four, whilst Florent Malouda’s double and Salomon Kalou’s first league goal of the season underscored a fabulous night for Ancelotti’s Blues. The lead was Chelsea’s early on, when Malouda blasted a cross right through the penalty area, where Lampard was at the back post to slide in past Friedel. A lapse from the otherwise impressive…

Another Thriller With Villa?

Chelsea will be looking to continue where they left off after their 5-0 win at Portsmouth, by putting Aston Villa to the sword this weekend at Stamford Bridge. It will be a true test of whether the Blues have pushed through their recent form slump. Unfortunately though, Ricardo Carvalho has been ruled out for four weeks through injury, so he joins Bosingwa, Ivanovic, Ashley Cole and Essien on the sidelines….

Is Carlo The Right Man For The Job?

OK so Ancelotti has won a few titles in Serie A and he has also won the Champions League, as well as losing it after being three up against the Scouse Scum. He came to us in a blaze of publicity. But what has he achieved? It comes to something when I agree with certain hacks who have said we should have walked the league this year with our squad,…
