Dizzy Heights For Chelsea Supporters








If you’re reading this there’s a high probably you support Chelsea and an even higher probably you’re a decent sort with a bit of compassion and a few quid. Ok, I’m buttering you up a bit now but I’m after a favour – a little favour really because all I ask is you have a read of this post and appreciate what these people are doing: … Read More

Napoli v CHELSEA: Champions League Preview

Venue: Stadio San Paolo, Naples

Date: Tuesday, 21 February

Kick-off: 1945 GMT


When we can’t buy ourselves a win in the Premier League – or even in the cup against Birmingham – an away tie against Napoli is just what we need, right? Ok, so we’d probably prefer Northampton but then it wouldn’t be the Champions League.… Read More

AVB Suffering For Past Mistakes?

I was watching some old Chelsea videos at the weekend – well let’s face it, it was preferable to our highlights against Birmingham wasn’t it?

With everything that’s going on at the club right now, particularly the pressure AVB is under and the (mis)reported chants for the return of Mourinho, there’s definitely a feel that some of us are harping after the past, so, true to that form I revisited our relegation back to the second division in ’88 (because I’m obviously sadistic) and ended the evening with some old favourites from 1997 through to 2005.… Read More

CHELSEA vs Birmingham: FA Cup Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Date: Saturday 18 February

Kick-off: 1230 GMT


After so much doom and gloom surrounding us lately, I’d really like to be at least a little bit optimistic about today’s game – but since I’m neither drunk or on drugs, I’ll stick to realism.

In our last five games, the only win we’ve managed was in this competition against a piss poor QPR, we were worse than useless against Everton last weekend, the players apparently can’t stand AVB and of course the press will be wanking themselves silly at the thought of us playing ‘hunt the manager’ again.… Read More

Anyone Not Got The Knives Out For AVB?

Either TheChelseaBlog was clearly right about our senior players having absolutely no respect for Andre Villas-Boas whatsoever, or someone’s still a little bitter about his departure. … Read More

Is Torres Feeling The Love?

I was in a cab when I heard we’d signed Andriy Shevchenko. I remember it because I’d been saying for two seasons we should sign him.  I remember how I took the absolute piss out of the other passenger in the cab with me – a Milan fan who’d sworn all along Shevchenko would never leave AC. … Read More

Chelsea Concerns: From Boardroom To Pitch

When it’s supporters rather than the press calling for the Chelsea manager’s head, you know he’s in trouble.  Mind you, let’s not pretend the press hadn’t already sown the seed, they had, months ago and now it seems that following our first defeat of 2012, the ‘AVB out’ campaign is in full swing.… Read More
