Does This Really Help?

As I write this piece, we are at the end of the first month of this World Cup year and the build up is slowly starting to crank up. By June, it will be at fever pitch. After all, within a month or so, we will be starting to get our free wall charts and some retro football stickers complete with a glossy brochure of the ‘players to watch’ during…

The Christmas tree formation was again on show with Ashley Cole, Yuri Zhirkov and Florent Malouda all present in the same starting side. Alex was also preferred…

Lamps At The Double

Chelsea rolled Birmingham with ease, winning 3-0 at home to continue our excellent run of form. Frank Lampard scored twice and Florent Malouda netted a header as our clinical finish proved too much for Birmingham. It took all of four minutes for Chelsea to take the lead. Joe Cole beat Bowyer for pace on the right, before standing up a cross that was easily headed in by the unmarked Malouda….

Cup Campaign Continues

Chelsea eased through to the fifth round of the FA Cup, defeating Preston North End 2-0. It was a professional, clinical performance from Chelsea with goals from strikers Nicolas Anelka and Daniel Sturridge enough to guarantee that there’d be no “cupset” from Darren Ferguson’s side. Ancelotti was true to his word, sticking with the side he named 24 hours earlier. Hilario, Ferreira, Alex, Zhirkov, Belletti and Sturridge were some of…

Carlo Up For The Cup

Deepdale plays host to an FA Cup fourth round tie between Preston North End and Chelsea. Preston North End reached this stage by thrashing Colchester United 7-0, whilst Chelsea were victorious over Watford 5-0. Curiously, Carlo Ancelotti has named his side already and without doubt it is one strong enough to beat Preston. Hilario, Ferreira, Alex, Terry and Zhirkov make up the back five, Belletti, Ballack, Lampard and Deco the…

Sunderland Seen Off

Chelsea shellacked Sunderland 7-2 on Saturday to consolidate their position at the summit of the Premier League. Nicolas Anelka and Frank Lampard scored a brace apiece, whilst Florent Malouda, Ashley Cole and Michael Ballack also scored one each. For Sunderland, former Blue Boudewijn Zenden and their top scorer Darren Bent found the net. As expected, Belletti started in midfield, but there was no place for Daniel Sturridge in the starting…

Beware The Black Cats

Chelsea resume their league campaign at Stamford Bridge against Sunderland this afternoon. It’s been 19 days since our last league action but nonetheless Chelsea are still one point clear at the top of the table, albeit still with a game in hand over Manchester United. Drogba, Kalou, Mikel and Essien are all still away on international duty, whilst Deco and Jose Bosingwa are still injured. It could mean more action…

Incidentally, on loan Chelsea winger Scott Sinclair scored the final goal for Wigan. Chelsea have Drogba, Essien, Mikel and Kalou away at the African Cup of Nations.
