Chelsea Vs CPO – How Low Can You Go?

October 21, 2011

Since the announcement of Chelsea FC’s proposal to Chelsea Pitch Owners, the club have used every possible medium at their disposal to try and influence shareholders to vote “yes”. We have seen the club utilise current players, former players, columnist, the medium of Chelsea TV and the matchday programme. The intensity of their campaign indicates how seriously they are taking this matter. In the interests of balance, the “Say No…


Road to the Harris Suite – Latest Developments

October 18, 2011

Saturday was a key day for the Say No to CPO campaign, with volunteers taking to the streets and pubs of SW6 to hand out leaflets and discuss issues with supporters face to face. It was a hugely positive experience.  Many fans, even those in favour of the “yes” proposal, wanted to have a chat about what the campaign means and its objectives.  Many of those I spoke to had…


Reserves: Chelsea 2-3 Wolverhampton Wanderers

October 17, 2011

A strong-looking Chelsea reserve side fell to a second consecutive defeat on Monday afternoon as visitors Wolverhampton Wanderers came away from Cobham with a 3-2 victory. First half goals from Jamie Reckord, Sam Vokes and Ashley Hemmings proved enough to seal the points for Steve Weaver’s side, who took advantage of some poor Chelsea defending, and despite goals from Milan Lalkovic and Romelu Lukaku, they were good value for their…


Toffees Toothless As Chelsea Make It Eight In Two

October 16, 2011

John Terry scored on his 350th league appearance for Chelsea against Everton on Saturday, doubling an earlier Sturridge effort in the first half and preceding a Ramires goal in the second, which saw Chelsea beat Everton at home for the first time since 2006. With the international break coming straight after a 5-1 victory over Bolton, there was a concern that the teams rhythm may have been upset. This was…

October 16, 2011

We’re back to domestic action after the international break, and we’ve got a fresh loan report for you on the last seven days for Chelsea’s youngsters plying their trade away from Stamford Bridge. We’ll start in the Netherlands, where two Blues find themselves flying high in the Eredivisie with Vitesse Arnhem.

Diplomatic Immunity: Everton

October 14, 2011

An occasional series of open discussions with opposition fans. They can say what they like about Chelsea and I promise not to be rude back to them. Number 3:  Toffee Time Why Everton? As a Scouser, what’s the choice? Tranmere? I used to go to watch them play sometimes, but when you’re a kid you want a bit more razzamatazz don’t you? You want to see the big names play….


The Road to The Harris Suite – Action Stations!

October 13, 2011

Update 1 of The Road to the Harris Suite addressed the ethos of the “SayNoCPO” (SNCPO) campaign, issues that have arisen to date, and our strategy going forward. Whilst meetings with club officials are taking take place, and a meeting with CPO Directors is envisaged, this weekend’s home game against Everton, televised on Sky, and the only significant home game before the meeting on 27th October, provides an opportunity for…

It’s now been eight days since Chelsea FC announced that a General Meeting of Chelsea Pitch Owners would take place on 27th October, at which their proposal to buyback the Leasehold of Stamford Bridge would be voted on. Over course of the last week, tentative discussions between individuals via the medium of social networking have combined with supporters’ groups and CPO shareholders to form an umbrella group representing the interests…


Chelsea FC: Giving Up Your Rights

October 10, 2011

If it wasn’t enough for the club to show how little they care for supporters with regards to the CPO and Stamford Bridge issue, a piece of information comes our way today that shows this is a growing trend. The club have started a new ‘upload your photo/videos’ section on the Official Chelsea FC website called ‘All Blues. All Season‘ – we were asked to promote it a short while…

October 9, 2011

A few days ago we ran a survey and asked as many Chelsea supporters as possible to give us their opinions on the proposed buy out of the Chelsea Pitch Owners, and also any possible stadium move. We were amazed at the response to the survey with over 1000 people filling it in, although some were only partially completed we have included those questions answered in the results, this is…
