Lukaku: Should He Stay Or Should He Go?

CFC-Lukaku
August 17, 2016

There seems to be a growing trend for players returning to their old clubs recently. This could be down to mistakes, or even lack of worry about the financial losses it takes to enable them, but either way Chelsea are re-joining the trend they started with Matic. Romelu Lukaku who was once lauded as the next Didier Drogba, and could be coming back to the bridge, but is such a…

For most of the Stamford Bridge faithful, the real start of the season will come at the weekend, when Chelsea play Leicester in their first home Premier League game. For 4,000 lucky (and hardy) souls, the trip to Burnley on Monday night was made well worth their while by a sparkling 3-1 win, with the Master of Cesc winning plaudits from pundits and fans alike, and the big beast Costa…

Well, that wasn’t too bad.  Thanks to the World Cup and an early pre-season opportunity to watch the boys in blue, compared to other years the close season has positively fled.  And that can only mean one thing.  TheChels.Net’s resident Old Crone, Gypsy Rose Baby, looks into her crystal ball to predict the future and also looks back to last year’s predictions.

Much has been made by the media (particularly the Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph) of an alleged decision by the Premier League that they intend to “help” Chelsea by switching one of our forthcoming Premier League fixtures featuring Sunderland and Liverpool games to a Saturday. That’s great, until you look at the detail.  One of our Champions League semi-final games must be played on a Tuesday.  For the PL…

Spring brings a feeling of renewal; a fresh start.  Supermarkets are advertising product discounts for a “spring clean”.  The crocuses and daffodils are out – Hyde Park was looking stunning, albeit somewhat overcast today.  For those of us of the Christian faith, the great season of Lent is upon us.  And at the risk of being accused of attempting to steal the thunder of my dear friend, Driver on The…

This is a season where the cost of attending football has been under the spotlight like never before. As the Age of Austerity drags into its sixth year, even those supporters who are in relatively well paid employment are having to juggle increasingly high living costs, coupled with below-inflation wage rises – and that’s if you’re lucky. The Football Supporters’ Federation (FSF) launched their ‘SCORE’ campaign (motto: Twenty’s Plenty’) in…
