Where Are They Now? Charlie Cooke

One of the most skillful players ever to have pulled on a Chelsea shirt and is certainly one of the most popular. A truly great entertainer who played in four Cup Finals during his ten years at Stamford Bridge, as his Chelsea career was split into two parts either side of a 16 month stint at Crystal Palace.

Defeats, sackings, internal turmoil, and rumours about Carlo’s future and injuries wasn’t the best preparation for the Champions League tie against MSK Zilina.

Mugged In The Midlands

Our poor away form continued as we lost against Birmingham in the Premiership on Saturday afternoon, or did it? Despite battering the Birmingham defence we somehow managed to leak a goal with the only real effort on target. It was a classic snatch and grab. Birmingham keeper Ben Foster earned all three points for Birmingham with a string of good saves to deny Anelka, Drogba, Malouda and others, as Chelsea…

Around 20 shots on goal, over 15 corners and despite having Drogba, Anelka, Kalou, Malouda and Sturridge on the pitch, we still couldn’t find a way to put the ball in the back of the net. The defeat to Birmingham is the first time in over four years that Chelsea have lost two in a row, so even though we lost the match, please vote and let us know who…
