Spotlight On: Napoli

February 21, 2012

So, Chelsea supporters, you’ve had a tough time of it recently. And now you’re off to meet Napoli in the Champions League, hoping against hope that this will be what brings your club back from the brink. Well, in case you’ve been hiding under a rock, I’m here to tell you — this tie just might not be the simple one you’re wishing for. If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll…


The Wisdom Of Salomon

August 21, 2011

Never in recent memory has a player divided opinion amongst the Chelsea faithful as much as Salomon Kalou. The West Brom match however, may have been a tipping point for many who’ve otherwise sat on the fence until now. Generally regarded as poor against Stoke, grumbles were heard when his name was announced in the starting line-up, with questions of ‘why?’ and ‘how?’ Malouda didn’t set the world alight against…


Sky Wrong On Terry & Modric

July 19, 2011

With the current situation engulfing NewsCorp, you’d think Murdoch’s empire would be taking a little more care in their reporting. Sadly not, it would seem. Earlier today it was widely reported, with the source being Sky Sports, that John Terry had claimed Luka Modric has been ‘disrespectful’ towards Tottenham in trying to engineer a move to Chelsea. These quotes quickly spread like wildfire and have been repeated ad nauseum across…


The Games That Win You Titles

May 9, 2011

The night after the day before and it’s all still a bit too much to take. Having clawed back from so far behind, to get within touching distance of retaining the title and then lose it in just 45 minutes of football has left many of us feeling deflated. In March we were wondering if we’d even make fourth place, so credit where it’s due to Carlo and the lads….


And Now You’re Gunner Believe Us

May 1, 2011

Many said it couldn’t be done, the table now shows that it’s entirely possible. This has been the season of shocks, and none will be more so than if Chelsea take the charge and win the Premier League this season. Out of the blocks like a whippet, and striding into the lead until a November slump became a December disaster, and we were hoping, if not praying we could hold…


Europe…. Yawn

September 14, 2010

In around 24 hours Chelsea will again set out on the road to win the Champions League.  We know Roman wants to win this one and it would be nice to do it for him, if no-one else. Forgive us for not being to excited right now, we’ve seen all this before and after the utter bull we’ve had to put up with from UEFA, referee’s and the media in the past…


Four Out Of Four

September 13, 2010

It was never going to be a classic, with the pikey boys from East London looking to kick lumps out of us wherever possible, and the pitch resembling a gypsy caravan site, it was always going to be a battle. Thankfully in Michael Essien, we have the ultimate warrior for such occasions. Strong, quick, skilful and as we found out on Saturday, not too bad with his head either! Chelsea got off…


Over Land And Sea For Wet Sham

September 10, 2010

London, we love it, but one of the worst parts has to be the continual ‘improvements’ being made to the underground most weekends, that more often than not finds us blues struggling to get to a match, or stuck in the vicinity afterwards. Ironically these improvements aren’t making it any better for us this weekend either. With the usual district line weekend fiasco and militant muppet Bob Crows’ extra actions…


Squad List Announced

September 1, 2010

With a rather quiet closing of the transfer window, and contrary to many tabloid suggestions otherwise, there were no extra transfers by the club in addition to those of Ramires and Benayoun. Today the club announced the squad list for the forthcoming season, and with Premier League regulations now stating that only 25 players can be named, with eight being ‘home grown’ should the full 25 be named. A home-grown…


Blues Back At The Bridge

August 14, 2010

Finally it’s here, after a disappointing World Cup and a poor pre-season, we are now back to the main course of the countries top domestic competition. Chelsea kick off the defence of their title with a late afternoon kick off at Stamford Bridge, hosting former crowd favourite Roberto Di Matteo’s West Brom, in what we’d normally assume to be a formality. However with our form erratic thus far, and Carlo…
