Smoke And Mirrors

Football’s magic isn’t it? Yes, even during the close season. Is it called the close season because everyone keeps their cards ‘close’ to their chest I wonder? Story after story, rumour after rumour. Very few pieces of hard fact. And the scope for Fleet Street’s finest – oh sorry, you can’t call them that anymore can you? That would imply reporters’ gathering real news, informative journalism at its best; opinion…

A Question Of Blame

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…

FA Cup Retained, Double Done

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…

Blues On Brink Of Historic Double

In just a few hours Chelsea have the chance to write their names into an elite group of clubs who’ve won the ‘double’ in England.

No Doubt

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…

The Perfect Ending

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…

Destiny Awaits

Today could possibly be the start of an historic double winning season for Chelsea. Scrap that, today WILL be the start of an historic double winning season for Chelsea.

However it’s also been a season of goals galore, with three 7 goal thrashings at Stamford Bridge this season. Chelsea’s starting 11 should…

A Step Closer

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…

Anfield Awaits

Chelsea can be crowned Premier League Champions this weekend should they defeat Liverpool at Anfield and if Manchester United lose to Sunderland. Conversely, the Blues could feasible end the weekend two points behind Manchester United should results go the other way. It is a huge weekend, one that could define the season. Chelsea, coming off the massive 7-0 win against Stoke City last weekend, welcome back John Terry from suspension….
