Ah, glorious August, when football fans up and down the country are filled with what usually turns out to be misplaced optimism about the fate of their teams over the coming nine months. And speaking of misplaced optimism, TheChels.Net has asked their resident Old Crone to look into her crystal ball and see what might lie ahead. Please note that these predictions may contain a hefty dose of bias and/or…

Cheeky Sturridge Seals The Points

September 11, 2011

Chelsea continued their impressive record at the Stadium of Light as they beat a rather average looking Sunderland team by 2-1, which included a cheeky backheel from the returning Daniel Sturridge. André Villas-Boas has so far impressed a lot of people with his talks about the club and the team, but it was the first, hopefully first of many, time he showed that he can deliver on those statements too…

Chelsea Maintain Momentum

Chelsea are back, Chelsea are back!! These were the chants that were on everybody’s mind after the transfer window shut down and Chelsea gave further credence to this belief with a mighty impressive 4-2 victory at the Stadium of Light. Chelsea’s record signing, Fernando Torres, and Brazilian David Luiz were not available for the match, but Carlo Ancelotti was able to call upon the young, yet experienced, duo of John…

Back To The Main Course

February 1, 2011

With yesterday’s incredible deadline deals still fresh in the memory, focus shifts to the main course of Premiership football. Neither of yesterday’s signings will be available to play this evening, and with the departure of those out on loan too, it means the squad may be a little stretched for the journey north and we may see some newer names on the bench. Sunderland served up a shock last time…

It’s a bit of a crap game to be kicking this feature off with as it’s not often we lose 3-0 at home, to Sunderland of all teams! Yet we’ll get over it I’m sure, plenty of us have seen far worse, so suck it up and let us know who you thought was MOTM against Sunderland. This weeks winner is Petr Cech, by a clear margin! Thanks for voting….

..And Now For Something Completely Different

Hands up those of you who saw that coming? A tumultuous week at Stamford Bridge ended with the club’s worst defeat in the Roman Abramovich era, as Sunderland came and conquered the defending champions to the tune of a 3-0 reverse. After a terribly below-par performance at Liverpool last Sunday, Carlo Ancelotti’s men ground out a hard-earned three points in midweek at home to Fulham. Things have rather gone downhill…

Unlucky Lamps Misses Black Cat Visit

Sunderland are today’s visitors to fortress Stamford Bridge, for a match in which many of us had hoped to see the return of Frank Lampard. Sadly it won’t be, as our talismanic midfielder suffered a fresh injury this week in training, straining an adductor muscle, meaning he will be out for another two-three weeks. Lampard’s last appearance was in the 2-0 win over Stoke City on 28 August, and despite not…

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…

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…
