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,…

Blues Batter Bottom Boys

Chelsea moved to within a point of Manchester United at the top of table after an impressive 5-0 drubbing of bottom of the table Portsmouth. Daniel Sturridge came in and replaced the out of form Nicolas Anelka in the side, which also included Petr Cech for the first time since the defeat in Italy, as well as Ricardo Carvalho who’d also been out through injury. Deco was handed his first…

Blues Fratton Bound

Chelsea travel Fratton Park, where former manager Avram Grant is in charge of the debt ridden, relegation threatened Portsmouth. The FA has docked the South Coast club nine points for going into administration, leaving them with virtually no chance of staying in the Premier League beyond this season. John Terry will match Chopper Harris’ benchmark of 324 appearances as Chelsea captain, having first led Chelsea out on December 5, 2001…

Out Of Our Hands

A disappointing week for Chelsea has ended with points dropped at Ewood Park. Despite taking an early lead, the Blues could only draw 1-1 with Blackburn Rovers. Petr Cech hadn’t recovered in time, so Ross Turnbull started his third consecutive game in goal. Yuri Zhirkov was only on the bench with Paulo Ferreira at left back, whilst Salomon Kalou came in for Michael Ballack. Chelsea took the lead in the…

Make Mine A Double

With aspirations for the Uefa Champions League once again filed away (in a somewhat burgeoning file our sources tell us) under ‘how could that not be a penalty’, Carlo Ancelotti now focusses efforts on a domestic Premier League and FA Cup double, the like of which has never been seen at Stamford Bridge. That’s what you need to think about when you ponder how doable that little gem is, before…
