So Who Is Villas-Boas?

June 23, 2011

A young, charismatic football manager is about to join a top premier league side after an outstanding season with Porto, sounds familiar? That must be the only comparison that is made with Andre Villas-Boas and the ‘special one’, Jose Mourinho. There’s no doubt to Chelsea fans, Mourinho was the most successful manager ever to have graced Stamford Bridge and his legacy is somewhat still part of the team now. However,…


Internationals – A Look Back

June 13, 2011

International fixtures and friendlies especially, in most people’s eyes, are normally seen as a disruption to the ever growing number of games that players have to play in a calendar season. However, as one season comes to an end and preparation for the next season begins, for Chelsea, it could turn out to be a very important week. Daniel Sturridge scored after 9 minutes for England’s under 21’s in this…


A Date With Destiny?

May 8, 2011

Last seasons victory at Old Trafford was the turning point, Chelsea went to Manchester at a similar time of the season and victory was arguably the difference in finishing the season as Champions. Double-winning Champions. This Premier League season, however, has been very bizarre to say the least. Chelsea are currently on course to reach the lowest amount of total points gained since Roman Abramovich took over in 2003 and…


A Look At Where We Are

February 17, 2011

After the first two months of the Primer League, Chelsea were sat at the top looking down on everyone. Most pundits, journalists and even Premier League managers correctly claimed Chelsea were the team to beat. However, this has all changed and now most fans accept retention of the title is out of the question, and now we are chasing the leading pack to even qualify for the Champions League. How…


January Sales And Risking The Kids…

January 7, 2011

January is the worst time to buy players. Clubs and managers are reluctant to break up squads, especially let their prize assets go when they are playing so well. But we are getting desperate now; Spurs and Arsenal are sitting above us and were in the Europa league spot with Sunderland and Bolton breathing down our necks. Wow, who would have thought that 6 games into the season? A new…


Damage Is Done, But We Need To Move On

January 6, 2011

Well, that was embarrassing wasn’t it? All the teams around us dropped points last night and we fail to even get a point against rock bottom Wolves. Some say you can’t become a bad team over night, a lot people would argue Chelsea have. In 2010/2011 Chelsea has now dropped as many points as we did in the whole of the 2009/2010 season (29). As champions, this is unacceptable. We…


Who Snows What Could Have Been?

December 20, 2010

As the snow causes chaos across the country, it also prevents Chelsea from potentially sitting top of the table before St.Nic does his rounds. Shame. This could have been a perfect time to play United at home as our form has been awful to say the least, but positives were starting to show, particularly after an impressive second half display at White Hart Lane. JT showed us all why he…
