City Do The Double

Chelsea crashed to a 4-2 defeat at home to Manchester City, after Carlos Tevez, Craig Bellamy and Frank Lampard all scored twice. There were two penalties, two red cards and the infamous Wayne Bridge handshake snub, in a match that only heated up in the second half. Florent Malouda continued at left back in the absence of Ashley Cole and Yuri Zhirkov, whilst Joe Cole was recalled, in place of…

Advantage Inter

Internazionale will travel to Stamford Bridge in just under three weeks with a 2-1 lead to preserve, having defeated Chelsea at the San Siro. Diego Milito and Esteban Cambiasso scored for Jose Mourinho’s side, whilst Salomon Kalou scored for Chelsea. The Blues also lost Petr Cech to a serious looking injury in the second half. Florent Malouda was preferred to Juliano Belletti at left back for Chelsea, which mean that…

Deadly Drogs Does It Again

Chelsea laboured to a 2-0 win at Wolves thanks to another brace from Didier Drogba, taking his season total to 25 in all competitions. However, Manchester United’s crushing defeat at Goodison Park now sees Chelsea open up a four point lead atop the English Premier League.

Cardiff Suffer The Blues

Chelsea dispensed with Cardiff City 4-1 in the FA Cup fifth round, courtesy of goals from Didier Drogba, Michael Ballack, Daniel Sturridge and Salomon Kalou. Cardiff’s goal was, at the time, an equaliser scored by Michael Chopra, but in reality, they were never in the hunt. It took just two minutes for the Blues to take the lead and it was Drogba’s 23rd goal of the season that did it….

Tall Poppy Syndrome

As someone who has followed Chelsea Football Club for a considerable period of time, I find myself in a strange and unfamiliar land. There was a time when one had to buy half a dozen papers on Sunday and then spend lunchtime down the local hunched over a hair-of-the-dog Stella trying to find something interesting about our beloved and at times, somewhat beleaguered club. My, how times have changed. Ne’er…
