Late Goal Deflates Chelsea Comeback

January 3, 2011

When we see Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and John Terry on the score sheet, usually this is the cue of a big win, but sadly the usual isn’t the case at Stamford Bridge at the moment, as Chelsea were held to a 3-3 draw against the visiting Aston Villa side. Both teams went into the game not in the best of forms and it will be fair to say that…


…And Breathe

December 30, 2010

Ask any set of Chelsea fans and they will tell you that past few weeks have been very hard for the club. And after that demoralising defeat at Arsenal just 48 hours ago, it was important that we got all three points over the in-form Bolton Wanderers, thankfully that’s what we got as we returned to winning ways with a 1-0 win. With only a day’s rest between games it…


Gooners Pile On The Misery

December 28, 2010

Sometimes you just have to accept the fact that you weren’t good enough and it was one of those days for the Blues at the Emirates. Chelsea have had some big results against Arsenal over the years and were expected to get the result again despite being on a terrible run for the past month, but unfortunately it wasn’t to be the case, as some horrible mistakes in quick succession…


Marseilles Defeat Extends Poor Run

December 9, 2010

Chelsea travelled to Marseilles hoping to break the winless run in the league and thereby becoming the first English club to win every game in group phases of the Champions League. But, as our recent form suggested, this was going to be no easy task, and so the case prove to be, as Olympique de Marseilles registered a 1-0 win through a late Brandao strike. Carlo Ancelotti stated in his…


Terry & Essien Return Yet Blues Still Slip

December 5, 2010

We wanted John Terry back, we got it; we wanted Michael Essien back, we got it. Yet sadly the thing that we wanted the most, three points, eluded us on a day when a win would have taken us to the top of the league. Everton hadn’t beaten us at Stamford Bridge for 16 years, but this didn’t highlight the fact that we haven’t got three points against them on…


Away Form Remains Cause For Concern

November 29, 2010

Chelsea’s away troubles continued as The Blues could only draw with Newcastle United on a cold snowy day in the North-East of England. The match was initially under threat due to the ongoing severe cold conditions prevailing in Newcastle, but was given go ahead, much to the relief of the travelling Blue supporters. Carlo Ancelotti made seven changes from the midweek win over MSK Zilina and called back experienced senior…


Youngsters Impress Against Zilina

November 24, 2010

Defeats, sackings, internal turmoil, and rumours about Carlo’s future and injuries wasn’t the best preparation for the Champions League tie against MSK Zilina. But, here at Chelsea we have grown accustomed to all these things and the player‘s on the pitch showed that they have as well, as we overcame a  1-0 deficit to record a first win in 3 in all competitions and keep our 100% record intact in…


Essien Off As Blues Go Four Points Clear

November 11, 2010

Chelsea returned to winning ways after the disappointment of the weekend as they overcame Fulham to win their eleventh consecutive home game in the League, with Michael Essien scoring the only goal of the game before being sent-off late on. The Blues welcomed their local rivals, Fulham, for another West London derby on a cold night at the Bridge as we looked to avoid suffering consecutive defeats in the league…


Poor Away Form Continues

November 8, 2010

Chelsea went to Anfield full of confidence and expected a win over Liverpool to maintain their 5 point lead over the rest of the chasing pack, but were found wanting as Fernando Torres struck two well taken goals in the first half, and inflicted the second defeat of the season on the Blues. Carlo Ancelotti had already announced his probable line-up on Friday, but when the teams were announced at…


Anelka Leads The Way

November 4, 2010

Chelsea continued their impressive run in the Champions League, winning all three points and extending the unbeaten run in the group stages of the Champions League to 22 matches, spanning over 7 years. After a goalless first-half, which lacked in quality and cutting edge, Chelsea came out roaring after the break with the impressive Anelka opening the scoring for the Blues, before a Drogba penalty and a brace by Ivanovic…
