Arsenal 0-3 CHELSEA: Easy Afternoon at The Slowly Abandoned Emirates

Shame about the weather for this one, especially after Cesc had clearly taken so much time over his hair – pretty boy.

Arsenal had the better start and plenty of possession in the first twent minutes, whilst Mikel was found wanting in the concentration department and was pushed off the ball a little too easily.Read More

Arsenal vs CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Emirates Stadium

Date: Sunday, 29 November

Kick-off 1600 GMT

 

A win for United yesterday put them just two points behind us so we need a result today to make that gap a little bit more respectable again – and it’s Arsenal at the Emirates.

We go into the game eight points ahead of Arsenal, although they have a game in hand to reassure them the gap between us this season isn’t quite so big.Read More

Wenger Gets His Handbag Out Ahead Of Chelsea Game

You have to laugh at Wenger really, he always tries to give mind games a go before big games and never quite gets it right.

Bearing in mind we haven’t done much wrong in terms of our football so far this season, the sour-faced Arsenal manager has had a scrabble round and come up with some half-cocked notion that our transfer ban isn’t a punishment.Read More

Porto 0-1 CHELSEA: Top Spot Secure With A Game To Spare

Well, it weren’t pretty but seeing as we’ve clinched top spot in the group, you’d have to say it was effective.

I suppose with us both having qualified for the knockout stages already, the sort of game we got was the sort of game we expected.  We started off ok with efforts from Malouda, Drogba and Ballack, but to be fair, Porto had the better first half with Petr Cech at fault for giving away second chances before redeeming himself.Read More

Chelsea To Miss Usual Liverpool Fixture

What we won’t see this season:

What we will see this season:

Yep, that’s right, ickle Stevie Me could spend the rest of this season burying his head and pretending Liverpool’s failure to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League isn’t such a bad thing.

After the game, the Liverpool captain tried to dress it up a bit, insisting “Of course it’s disappointing, we played fantastically well tonight and despite getting three points we don’t progress.Read More

Are Chelsea Champions League favourites?

Very often during football, there is an opinion that seems to be mutually accepted regardless of how valid it is. The view Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard can’t play together for England is one example and the view that the Serie A is boring is another.

Stretching this to beyond football, in this year’s X Factor it was mentioned once that contestant Danyl Johnson wasn’t likeable and suddenly everyone believed it.… Read More

CHELSEA vs Wolves: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Date: Saturday, 21 November 2009

Kick-off: 1500

 

It’s been a while since we played Wolves in the Premier League and the last time we did do that at Stamford Bridge, we battered them 5-2 courtesy of a Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink hat-trick.

Mind you, that was back in 2004 and Jimmy Floyd won’t be up front for us this time, unfortunately though neither will Didier Drogba because his is one of the names on our ever-increasing injury list.Read More

Right Result For Bad Boy Essien?

Oh dear, looks like Michael Essien is in a spot of bother with his national team.

Apparently, the Chelsea midfielder went walkabout with Inter’s Sulley Muntari and Rennais’ striker Asamoah Gyan for Ghana’s trip to Angola and it looks like he could get the boot, with Ghana FA chairman Dr Nyaho Tamakloe insisting “No European footballer will behave the way they have done if they are called for a national assignment.Read More
