Could Mourinho Be ‘Special’ At Inter?

It would seem almost certain that former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is ready to throw himself back into the lion’s den of football management. Mourinho, who has been out of work since he left Chelsea in a blaze of publicity 8 months ago, looks like he’s going to try Serie A for size following Mancini’s departure.Read More

Would Scolari Fancy Chelsea?

So, the axe continues to fall at Stamford Bridge, with Henk Ten Cate following Grant out the door. Having had the ‘your job’s safe’ kiss of death off Gollum only days ago, Ten Cate was reported to have said “He (Kenyon) told me the news and he also said that the sacking of Grant would have no consequences for me.Read More

Mancini Not The Man For Chelsea

I have to say I was less than impressed to hear reports on Sky Sports yesterday of Roberto Mancini being the new ‘favourite’ to take over as Chelsea manager. I’ve touched on Mancini as a candidate recently and think my dislike for him is probably evident. So the fact that Sky seemed pretty certain there was some truth to these latest rumours had me a bit worried, until I looked at what exactly backs this particular ‘exclusive’ up.Read More

Arsenal Shocker: We Won’t Spend Big

So, Danny Fiszman, Arsenal director came out yesterday saying the club aren’t prepared to spend big – and this is news?!

The Gunners, who failed to win a trophy during the previous campaign (yeah, yeah, I know we didn’t either but at least we never gave up til Utd crossed the finish line), are determined to remain financial martyrs til the end of time it seems.Read More

Bentley To Chelsea?

With an announcement of our new manager apparently imminent, I’m sure most of us just want it sorted so we can move forward. After all, its even harder to believe all the transfer speculation when there’s no-one there for new players to actually play for.

Anyway, onto one of the latest players who’s rumoured to fancy a move to an as-yet manager-less club – Blackburn’s David Bentley.Read More

Terry To Lead England

After a pretty grim week, John Terry has been given the welcome boost of the captaincy for tonight’s game against the USA. The announcement came, as expected, by the England manager yesterday, who reckon’s he’d already decided it before Terry’s Champions League slip. Personally I think he’s a sentimental old sod really.Read More

Is Hughes The Perfect Man For The Job?

The talk seems very much about Frank Rijkaard taking over the poison chalice Chelsea hotseat in the near future and whilst I’ve seen that one coming for a while and would probably see it as an acceptable appointment (if I can get over the fact I can’t stand him as a person), there’s been another name in the press lately that’s caught my imagination – ex-Chelsea star and current Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes.Read More

Andriy Shevchenko: Will Roman Do The Decent Thing?

Andriy Shevchenko has had an outstanding career by anyone’s standards. 173 goals for AC Milan between 1999-2006, European footballer of the year in 2004, amongst the top ten of FIFA World footballer of the year six times, top scorer in the Champions League on three occasions and that’s without his international record taken into consideration.Read More

Chelsea: The Future

Wow, what a season its been, truly memorable, for both good and bad reasons, rollercoaster doesn’t really sum it up. Season was ended in proper Chelsea style, with sacking a manager in an extremely disrespectful way, after he took us to the brink of European glory. That’s all for another time, but now its time to look to 08/09 season, and what a busy summer its gonna be at the Bridge.Read More

Anelka Heading For Stamford Bridge Exit?

Well, he’s been with us since January and whilst we may have seen the odd scowl, there’s been nothing much to write home about on the tantrum front. So, having kept his temperament pretty much in check for the past four months, Nicolas Anelka has used the aftermath of the Champions League defeat as an appropriate time to let off some steam.Read More
