Sturridge Shines At St James Park

December 4, 2011

Andre Villas-Boas finally had something to cheer about as Chelsea gave a performance which showed they are making progress and moving in the right direction after the recent debacles, after they broke Newcastle United’s unbeaten start to the season at home and recorded a 3-0 victory at St. James’s Park. The pressure had been mounting on the young manager after a series of insipid performances which have resulted in us…


Wolves Slaughtered At Stamford Bridge

November 27, 2011

A win, a clean sheet and three points in the bag, this sounds like the perfect recipe for a Saturday afternoon for this Chelsea team who have had a horrendous time off late, and this is what we got as Chelsea cruised to a 3-0 win over a below-par Wolves team. There was a first start for Oriol Romeu as Frank Lampard was rested, while the rest of the team…


Familiar Face Decisive At Stamford Bridge

November 21, 2011

The curse of Liverpool just doesn’t seem to end for the Blues as we suffered our third loss in our last four home games against the men from Merseyside. Maxi Rodriguez had given Liverpool the lead in the first half, but Chelsea came roaring at them in the beginning of the second half before a late winner from the former Chelsea man, Glen Johnson, ruined the day and brought them…


Pain In Spain As Late Penalty Snatches Draw

September 29, 2011

Another game, another defensive mistake and another goal conceded, and this time that goal made all the difference as València snatched a draw right at the end at Estadio Mestalla. Frank Lampard had given the Blues the lead just before the hour mark, but a handball by his substitute, Salomon Kalou, gave the hosts a chance to equalise from twelve yards out from which Roberto Soldado coolly finished. After being…


Torres Off But Blues March On

September 25, 2011

Two goals either side of the half ensured Chelsea maintained their 100% record in the league at Stamford Bridge thanks to a double strike from the ever impressive Ramires, despite going down to ten men in the first half after Fernando Torres was shown the red. After a lacklustre start, the game came to life in a crazy ten minute spell in the first half which included two goals and…


Much More Than Just A Defeat

September 19, 2011

It’s not often that a score line so blatantly refutes the events of the game, but the 3-0 sore line at half-time did just that, and even though Fernando Torres scored early in the second half and we had chances to reduce the deficit it was not to be, as Chelsea’s unbeaten start to the season came to end on a crazy day at Old Trafford. All of Manchester United’s…


First Blood In The Champions League

September 14, 2011

A late goal from Juan Mata rounded off another opening day victory in the Champions League, after a brilliant strike from David Luiz had broken the deadlock in Andre Villas-Boas’s first game in charge in Europe. With the game against Manchester United on the weekend in mind this was a decent result after many of the regular starters were given a rest, as Villas-Boas surprised everyone by resting the likes…


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…


Late Strikes Seal Blues Win

August 27, 2011

Late strikes from Frank Lampard and Juan Mata sealed Chelsea’s victory over Norwich, after Holt had cancelled out Jose Bosingwa’s early strike. Villas-Boas made a tactical change for the game as he started with a flexible diamond formation, which meant that both Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres started, much to the surprise of most fans. Branislav Ivanovic came in for Alex, with the Serbian now seemingly moving ahead of Alex…


The Chelsea Twitterati

August 24, 2011

How many of us have had the chance to meet or interact with our Chelsea heroes? As things stand, not many would answer that in the affirmative I would presume. Only a few lucky ones amongst us have had the chance to meet up with them at charity events or official club events, but this excludes the majority of us who have to resort to various media outlets to get…
