Vote Your MOTM: MSK Zilina

November 23, 2010

Well that was a close call, or was it? The Stats would suggest otherwise with 31 shots on goal, bringing 9 on target, 12 corners, and 60% possession. Chelsea were undone by a good goal, however showed resilience enough to recover the match, especially considering the average age of the team. Who do you think was the best player? You voted the man of the match for Zilina as Patrick…


Mugged In The Midlands

November 21, 2010

Our poor away form continued as we lost against Birmingham in the Premiership on Saturday afternoon, or did it? Despite battering the Birmingham defence we somehow managed to leak a goal with the only real effort on target. It was a classic snatch and grab. Birmingham keeper Ben Foster earned all three points for Birmingham with a string of good saves to deny Anelka, Drogba, Malouda and others, as Chelsea…


Vote Your MOTM: Birmingham

November 20, 2010

Around 20 shots on goal, over 15 corners and despite having Drogba, Anelka, Kalou, Malouda and Sturridge on the pitch, we still couldn’t find a way to put the ball in the back of the net. The defeat to Birmingham is the first time in over four years that Chelsea have lost two in a row, so even though we lost the match, please vote and let us know who…


Alex Returns In Time For Brum Rumble

November 20, 2010

Considering many of us were wondering how we’d have a defence up until January, the news that Alex can play, and Terry may be back for Newcastle, is more than welcome. Considering we played with four recognised full backs at Sunderland, and were roundly spanked, the thought of having to see through some big games, and our traditionally tricky Christmas fixtures was a worry. However after sitting on the bench…


Vote Your MOTM: Sunderland

November 15, 2010

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….


Unlucky Lamps Misses Black Cat Visit

November 14, 2010

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…


Hughes Returns To Old Stomping Ground

November 10, 2010

Chelsea entertain Fulham this evening looking to make up for lost ground in the title race after the defeat to Liverpool at Anfield. Chelsea old boy Mark Hughes brings his 13th place Fulham side to Stamford Bridge looking to put one over on his own club. Didier Drogba will return to lead the line despite his malaria scare, as will Essien who should be fit again after a toe injury,…


Anfield Awaits Ancelotti

November 7, 2010

Anfield, the scene of many a battle with Liverpool over the past several seasons, some good, some not so good, however no visit by Chelsea has seen them in such a bad situation, for a long time. It has been a source of great humour, not only for Chelsea supporters but many across the land to see Liverpool in such a situation, however with the pairing of Gillette and Hicks…


The Russians Are Coming

November 3, 2010

Tonight Sir Didier of Drogba makes his return to the Champions League, in an effort to help Chelsea secure qualification for the next round. With injuries mounting up, Ancelotti gave some indication of who may play by stating who won’t. “Malouda and Bosingwa are not available for tomorrow. Malouda has a problem on his ankle after a tackle in the last game,’ reported Ancelotti. ‘It’s not a big problem but…


Not 100%, But Still Top Of The League

October 31, 2010

Ewood Park has never been an easy place to go, with Blackburn renowned for their physical approach, and more so since Sam ‘Bolton’ Allardyce became their manager. It was no surprise then that we were in for a tough match, what was a surprise was the style of football played by Blackburn, rough yes, but more football than fight. Chelsea lined up exactly as I’d predicted, with Ivanovic replacing Ferreira at…
