TheChels Meets The Chelsea Glamour Girl

February 22, 2010

If you’ve not seen the WAG parody doing the rounds, head on over to and check out the Glamour Girl video. Since we first ran it on Friday it’s had literally thousands of views, fast becoming one of the sites most popular videos. We managed to grab a space in Chenille’s extremely tight schedule to pose a few questions to her, and find out more about the Chelsea ‘Glamour…


Deadly Drogs Does It Again

February 22, 2010

Chelsea laboured to a 2-0 win at Wolves thanks to another brace from Didier Drogba, taking his season total to 25 in all competitions. However, Manchester United’s crushing defeat at Goodison Park now sees Chelsea open up a four point lead atop the English Premier League. Paulo Ferreira made a rare league start at right back, whilst Florent Malouda started on the left of the midfield four. Drogba and Anelka…


Thrown To The Wolves

February 20, 2010

Just four days out from the trip to play Jose Mourinho’s Internazionale, Chelsea have another less glamorous away trip to Wolverhampton, to take on Mick McCarthy’s side. Chelsea have a one point lead at the top of the table heading into this match, whilst Wolves are just a point outside the bottom three. Chelsea have injury problems, with Alex, Belletti, Essien, Bosingwa, Ashley Cole and Lampard all out of action….


Cardiff Suffer The Blues

February 15, 2010

Chelsea dispensed with Cardiff City 4-1 in the FA Cup fifth round, courtesy of goals from Didier Drogba, Michael Ballack, Daniel Sturridge and Salomon Kalou. Cardiff’s goal was, at the time, an equaliser scored by Michael Chopra, but in reality, they were never in the hunt. It took just two minutes for the Blues to take the lead and it was Drogba’s 23rd goal of the season that did it….


Cardiff Cup & Thrust

February 13, 2010

Cardiff City travel to Stamford Bridge for an FA Cup fifth round tie against Chelsea, having won all four previous League Cup and FA Cup ties against the Blues. As is becoming tradition, Carlo Ancelotti named his side ahead of kick off. Hilario is the goalkeeper, whilst Ferreira, Alex, Carvalho and Zhirkov make up the back four. Mikel, Ballack, Lampard and Joe Cole are in midfield and Drogba is partnered…


Tall Poppy Syndrome

February 12, 2010

As someone who has followed Chelsea Football Club for a considerable period of time, I find myself in a strange and unfamiliar land. There was a time when one had to buy half a dozen papers on Sunday and then spend lunchtime down the local hunched over a hair-of-the-dog Stella trying to find something interesting about our beloved and at times, somewhat beleaguered club. My, how times have changed. Ne’er…


Bad Night Up North

February 11, 2010

Chelsea’s lead at the top of the table is a solitary point after the Blues crashed to a 2-1 defeat against Everton at Goodison Park. Manchester United’s draw with Aston Villa ensures that things remain very tight at the top as we enter the final third of the season. Yuri Zhirkov replaced Michael Ballack in the only change from the side that beat Arsenal and it took just sixteen minutes…


Blues Bound For Goodison

February 10, 2010

For the second midweek running Chelsea are away from home, this time at Goodison Park. Chelsea are atop the Premier League with a two point gap over Manchester United, whilst Everton are currently exactly mid table. Chelsea are coming off a resounding 2-0 win against Arsenal on the weekend, whilst Everton were defeated in the Merseyside derby 1-0 by Liverpool. The Blues have no fresh problems heading into this match,…


Drogba Does It Again

February 8, 2010

Chelsea went back to the top of the English Premier League with a resounding 2-0 win at home to Arsenal. Didier Drogba was the chief destroyer with two well taken goals, whilst the defence plus Petr Cech were outstanding in Chelsea’s gallant victory. Florent Malouda was preferred to Deco and Joe Cole as the support to Drogba and Nicolas Anelka in attack, whislt Ashley Cole returned to the side at…


Here Come The Arsenal

February 7, 2010

Chelsea host Arsenal on Sunday in what is expected to be a fierce London derby. Chelsea go into the match six points clear of Arsenal who are third in the league, a win for United yesterday sent them back to the top of the table, bringing the result at Stamford Bridge into even sharper focus. William Gallas will face his former club, whilst Nicolas Anelka and Ashley Cole will do…
