Damage Is Done, But We Need To Move On

January 6, 2011

Well, that was embarrassing wasn’t it? All the teams around us dropped points last night and we fail to even get a point against rock bottom Wolves. Some say you can’t become a bad team over night, a lot people would argue Chelsea have. In 2010/2011 Chelsea has now dropped as many points as we did in the whole of the 2009/2010 season (29). As champions, this is unacceptable. We…


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…


Conflict And Collaboration

November 16, 2010

Part 1: Conflict. If you are of the persuasion that conflict and adversity brings out the best in an organisation, you may not be too upset by what is going on at Chelsea the moment. On the other hand, if you believe that collaboration is the way to achieve your aims, the events of the previous week may leave you with a sour taste. Conflict always exists within a football…


Happy Birthday Carlo Ancelotti

June 10, 2010

The current manager of Chelsea, having been appointed on 1 June 2009, during his first season in charge he led the club to the League & FA Cup Double, becoming the first Chelsea manager to achieve the feat, and the first Italian manager to win the Premier League title. Carlo opened the season with a penalty shoot-out win over Man Utd in the Community Shield, ending a hoodoo of several…


FA Cup Retained, Double Done

May 17, 2010

Chelsea sealed their first league and cup double with a 1-0 win in the FA Cup Final against Portsmouth, at Wembley Stadium. After hitting the woodwork five (yes, five!) times in the first half, Chelsea looked like they would pay when Portsmouth were awarded a penalty, but Petr Cech’s penalty save closely followed by Didier Drogba’s free kick, saw Chelsea close out a deserved victory. Chelsea were unchanged from the…


Chelsea FC – Champs 09-10

May 9, 2010

Carlo’s Chelsea have won the league at the first attempt, scoring an incredible 103 league goals this season. Frank Lampard had his best season ever, Didier Drogba scored more goals than any other season and won the golden boot, and Petr Cech has won the golden gloves. We’ve won the Community Shield, The FA Youth Cup, The Premiership and now have the FA Cup final to play. We’ve beaten every…


Is Carlo The Right Man For The Job?

March 26, 2010

OK so Ancelotti has won a few titles in Serie A and he has also won the Champions League, as well as losing it after being three up against the Scouse Scum. He came to us in a blaze of publicity. But what has he achieved? It comes to something when I agree with certain hacks who have said we should have walked the league this year with our squad,…
