And Now You’re Gunner Believe Us

Many said it couldn’t be done, the table now shows that it’s entirely possible. This has been the season of shocks, and none will be more so than if Chelsea take the charge and win the Premier League this season. Out of the blocks like a whippet, and striding into the lead until a November slump became a December disaster, and we were hoping, if not praying we could hold…

Gooners Pile On The Misery

Sometimes you just have to accept the fact that you weren’t good enough and it was one of those days for the Blues at the Emirates. Chelsea have had some big results against Arsenal over the years and were expected to get the result again despite being on a terrible run for the past month, but unfortunately it wasn’t to be the case, as some horrible mistakes in quick succession…

Vote Your MOTM: Arsenal

For many weeks now we’ve been looking at our performances, and not seeing what we’re used to seeing. The team appears disjointed and despite seeing ‘improvements’ in players, or passages of play, it’s just not good enough overall. Arsenal earned a deserved win over us for sure, but who was your best Chelsea player on the day? [fppp_display_poll] Check out our fantastic NEW Chelsea T-Shirts site at TheChels.biz – the best…

Let’s Kick Some Arsenal

December 27, 2010

The leftovers are eaten, the alcohol has run dry, and football finally returns. Tonight we see the festive treat that is Arsenal vs. Chelsea at the Emirates. Didier Drogba should be lining up against his favoured opponents and we will need him to be on form if we’re to have a chance of bagging all three points. Expect Anelka and Malouda to flank him, Anelka getting the nod ahead of…

The Harding Perspective: Arsenal

With the United match now on the back-burner until March, the focus switches to another of this seasons title contenders; Arsenal. Fabianski’s return in goal should be a welcome sight for Chelsea fans. His presence in goal this season has made a shaky central pairing look even more fragile, as Vermaelen’s loss is felt with each passing game. Fabianski possesses an inability to claim crosses and is a man with…

Didi Does It Again

Sometimes I wish I was a betting man, because Drogba scoring against Arsenal is now, it seems, pretty much a forgone conclusion. It was no surprise then, that in the 39th minute, up stepped our super striker to do it again, and deflate Arsene Wengers pre-match bravado that this would be the year they beat us. Every season it’s the same, it’s becoming as iconic as Liverpool’s ‘we’ll win it…

Force Or Finesse? We’ve Both, Arsene!

The only thing I love more than beating Arsenal, is listening to the musings of their slightly senile manager. Unless he didn’t see it, that is. A lot has been made of our physical strength, and whilst we are the tallest and heaviest team in the league, with Arsenal being the shortest and lightest, it’s disingenuous of Wenger to suggest that’s all we have in our Arsenal. When asked about…

Drogba Does It Again

February 8, 2010

Chelsea went back to the top of the English Premier League with a resounding 2-0 win at home to Arsenal. Didier Drogba was the chief destroyer with two well taken goals, whilst the defence plus Petr Cech were outstanding in Chelsea’s gallant victory. Florent Malouda was preferred to Deco and Joe Cole as the support to Drogba and Nicolas Anelka in attack, whislt Ashley Cole returned to the side at…
