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…


Nine-Man Blues Go Down Fighting

October 24, 2011

In the end, Chelsea’s second defeat of the season went down in entirely predictable fashion as another London derby ended with tempers frayed and the Blues with reduced numbers. Heidar Helguson’s early penalty proved enough to seal three points for Queens Park Rangers which were celebrated as loudly as any in their history, as first half red cards for Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba left their West London rivals facing…


Toffees Toothless As Chelsea Make It Eight In Two

October 16, 2011

John Terry scored on his 350th league appearance for Chelsea against Everton on Saturday, doubling an earlier Sturridge effort in the first half and preceding a Ramires goal in the second, which saw Chelsea beat Everton at home for the first time since 2006. With the international break coming straight after a 5-1 victory over Bolton, there was a concern that the teams rhythm may have been upset. This was…


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…


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…


Everything But The Goal

August 14, 2011

The start of a season that heralded a new beginning, and a break from the old, turned out initially to be much the same as last season. A familiar line up read; Cech, Bosingwa, Alex, Terry, Cole; Ramires, Mikel, Lampard; Kalou, Torres, Malouda – eight of whom started the final match of last season, with Kalou making a substitute appearance in that match too. Yet to focus only on the…


A Difference Of Perspective

May 12, 2011

So, here we are at the season’s end, and I have a problem. So I thought I’d put quill to parchment to put a few words out there and see what you, the goodly lords and ladies who follow our fine club, think. My problem is that I appear to have a different perspective on things to the majority of observers I see who comment on these matters. Specifically; on…


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….
