Good News For Rafa: Liverpool Have Overcome This Before

Great to see Liverpool completely capitulate against Fulham today and have a good laugh at an exhausted looking Benitez as he trudged towards the tunnel.  I mean, we all know how arrogant confident they are irrespective of how many times they have to dust their ‘history’ down, but just when I thought I couldn’t laugh [...]

Carling Cup Draw: Chelsea The Victims?

The draw has been made for the quarter-finals of the Carling Cup and unsurprisingly we’ve drawn Blackburn away. Why do I say unsurprisingly? Well there seems to be a bit of a pattern developing in our games of late – Blackburn at home in the league, Bolton at home in the cup, Bolton away in [...]

Bolton vs CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Reebok Stadium Date: Saturday, 31 October 2009 Kick-off: 1500 GMT   So, it’s our second game of the week against Bolton and in terms of precautions against the swine-flu ridden side, it seems the only one we’ll be taking is putting out a full strength squad after we rested a few for the Carling [...]

CHELSEA 4-0 Bolton: Goals Still Coming

Well that wasn’t too difficult was it? Another home game, another 4 goals, all that was missing was the three points although on the evidence of this, we might only have to wait until Saturday before we take those from Bolton as well. Carlo Ancelotti made the changes he said he would, resting the likes [...]

Tonight, we’re apparently up against another set of potentially contagious opponents, with Bolton manager Gary Megson suggesting several of their personnel [...]

Carling Cup fourth round Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Wednesday, 28 October Kick-off: 1945 GMT   Another home game for us tonight – clearly a comfort zone for us again, unbeaten in 16 and winning the last seven at Stamford Bridge. Not that tonight’s opponents will necessarily be put off by that, given the sort of [...]

Chelsea’s Most Underrated Player?

Joe Cole left the field to a standing ovation on Saturday and to be honest, that appreciation has been a long time coming. It’s something I’ve never really understood (and raised on TheChelseaBlog in the past), how time and again Joe Cole’s worth not just to his club but also his country, is overlooked. That’s [...]

CHELSEA 5-0 Blackburn: Blues Back On Top

Can’t grumble at that eh? Well, you could say if we’d taken the chances we missed in the first half, double figures wouldn’t have been out of the question, but let’s not be picky here. Paul Robinson might have seen five go past him but he saved just as many and certainly worked a lot [...]
