Man City Sink To A New Low

Oh dear, oh dear, Man City really are classless.

Ok, so that’s not exactly news but they really gave new meaning to the word today because stripping off their shirts after their win over Portsmouth this afternoon, Tevez, Ireland and De Jong were seen sporting ‘Team Bridge’ t-shirts.

I mean ffs what is this?Read More

Burnley 1-2 CHELSEA: John Terry Grabbing The Headlines

Chelsea had a game yesterday – not so you’d have noticed though because just about the only thing being written about us right now relates to our captain – and not the fact he scored the winner either! Still, the less said about his morals, which are evidently as loose as his pants, the better.Read More

Lucky Escape For Chelsea

There’s been plenty of occasions I haven’t agreed with Tony Cascarino’s opinion but having read what he’s had to say on Robinho, this time I think he’s spot on.

Having seen Robinho’s departure from Citeh following their Carling Cup exit, Cascarino says “Goodbye and good riddance to the worst signing in Premier League history.Read More

Burnley vs CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Turf Moor

Date: Saturday, 30 January 2010

Kick-off: 1730 GMT

 

This evening’s game sees us away at a Burnley side on an 11-match run without a win, so we’ll be looking to put a bit of distance between us and the opposition who don’t play until tomorrow.

Owen Coyle’s departure has seen Burnley drop into the relegation places and new manager Brian Laws is still waiting for a point after his first three games in charge.Read More

Mutu Does Chelsea A Favour At Last

After writing endless articles about Adrian Mutu over the past year or two – most of which probably talk about him in derogatory terms – TheChelseaBlog would now like to thank him.

No, he hasn’t paid up what he owes but his latest misdemeanour certainly hasn’t done Chelsea any harm. In fact if anything, after years of playing the victim and making us out to be the bad guys, the fact that  Mutu has got caught out after another drug test, looks to have vindicated us of getting shot in the first place.Read More

CHELSEA 3-0 Birmingham: Lampard’s Found His Range Again!

Going into this one, it looked as if we would have a proper fight on our hands against a Birmingham side who’d seemingly forgotten how to lose. As it turned out though, right form the off it didn’t look as if this would end in anything but another home win.

Joe Cole, who had a good first half beat Bowyer just six minutes in, putting in a beauty of a cross for Malouda to head past Joe Hart.Read More

Right, we got ourselves comfortably through to the fifth round of the FA Cup with a 2-0 win over Preston at the weekend, now it’s back to the job in hand – getting some points back in the Premier League.

Could Chelsea Risk Losing Anelka And Cole?

This weekend, it was Nicolas Anelka who opened the scoring for us (ok, technically it should’ve been Malouda but let’s not split hairs), underlining his importance to Chelsea. Not just because Didier Drogba’s away right now – although clearly it’s great to have Anelka’s goals to fall back on – but because he really sets an example when it comes to getting the job done.Read More
