Chelsea Going Nowhere

There’s been all sorts of speculation surrounding Chelsea this season, from unsettled players through to an unsettled owner. However, one thing that appears to have been settled for now is the fate of Stamford Bridge because the following statement was made at the CPO AGM:


Chelsea statement re stadium development:
 
“Chelsea Football Club has always taken the position that our number one priority is to remain at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea’s Kakuta Attracting Attention

Versatile Chelsea youngster Gael Kakuta has caught the eye of a couple of Premier League clubs, namely Newcastle and Spurs.

Having failed in their bid to get Stewart Downing, Spurs are after a decent option on the left and with Kinnear describing his own left-sided option (N’Zogbia) as “insomnia”, it’s fair to say he’s looking for someone a little more lively down that particular wing as well.Read More

Chelsea And Those Tevez Stories

I read some silly story the other day, so ridiculous in fact, I couldn’t even be bothered putting anything on the blog about it. You know the sort of thing I mean – Real Madrid and Man City are linked with a player, so the press throw Chelsea in as an interested party, just to pad the story out a bit.Read More

One In, One Out At Chelsea

Well, we’ve finally made a signing in the January transfer window – even if it is an academy player.

Yesterday saw confirmation of the signing of 17 year-old Turkish youth International Gokhan Tore from Bayer Leverkusen for an undisclosed fee. The German-born attacking midfielder has been with Bayer Leverkusen since 1999 but despite playing at both Under-17 and Under-19’s for ‘The Werkself’, Tore hasn’t made the step-up to senior level with them and has now signed a three-and-a-half year contract, keeping him at Chelsea until 2012.Read More

Liverpool vs CHELSEA: Video Preview

Tomorrow sees our return game against Liverpool at Anfield and having seen our home record go against them already this season, we’d better make up for it this time around. Watch the video preview here.Read More

Yet Another Chelsea Departure?

With us turning into a selling club this season is there yet another Chelsea departure on the horizon?

Well, it’s being reported by Sky Sports that after much speculation, Branislav Ivanovic is to become a Gigliati player.

The Serbian clearly hasn’t been happy with his lack of playing time at Chelsea and his agent, Vlado Borozan, had previously suggested he’d agreed a deal with Fiorentina and was simply waiting for Chelsea to give him the nod to go ahead.Read More

Former Chelsea Man Writing Us Off?

Former Chelsea man Tony Cascarino seems to have plenty to say about us this week and none of it good.

Unsurprisingly, his opinion of Didier Drogba is pretty low, with him suggesting “The underlying problem within the camp now seems to be the behaviour of Drogba.  To be honest the Chelsea players have had enough of his behind-the-scenes antics.Read More

Ivanovic Getting Ahead Of Himself?

Despite Chelsea suggesting after Cudicini’s move to Spurs there’d be no more comings or goings at Stamford Bridge during this transfer window, according to recent reports that might not necessarily be the case.

There’s been ongoing speculation about Branislav Ivanovic for ages but according to his agent, today will be decisive in terms of his future.Read More

Kalou And Drogba Getting Political?

Salomon Kalou’s goal celebrations against Middlesbrough last night had me raging when I mistakenly thought he was showing support for John Obi Mikel following his arrest for drink-driving.

However, it actually turns out the gesture is thought to have been of a political nature. Both Kalou and Drogba celebrated by making a ‘handcuff’ gesture and the suggestion is that this was in support of Ivory Coast activist Antoine Assalé Tiémoko.Read More

CHELSEA 2-0 Boro: Set-Pieces Work For Us For A Change

CHELSEA 2-0 MIDDLESBROUGH

Forgive me if I just bypass the first half but to be honest, it hurt my eyes watching it. We lacked ideas and enthusiasm and although I’ve never agreed with booing players off, it was easy to see where the supporters were coming from at half-time.

We were pretty dull and unimaginative but fortunately, Boro were marginally worse so we got away with it for the first 45.Read More
