Chelsea Transfer Rumours: Malouda, Meireles Out, Moses In?

Right, the Euros are over – for England anyway and with few of our players left in it, the gossip around who may or may not be part of the Chelsea side next season continue.  Here’s some of the latest:

 

We Ain’t Got No History bring us word on a potential Malouda exit

Sport Witness seem to think Meireles could be on his way out

Metro.co.uk reckon there’s a German option if we don’t sign Moses

Football Friends online propose a right back for Chelsea

Whilst Emirates247 suggest we could end up looking for Pirlo… Read More

Ashley Cole: A Hateful of Hollow?

Ashley Cole. Say that name and most people (outside of Chelsea) will throw the ‘C’ word about.

Considering his service to England and English football, I find that a bit strange if I’m honest. Ok, so he may not be the subject of any ‘How to be the perfect husband’ manuals, but then there’s probably few professional players that would these days anyway.… Read More

Lampard: Ash Has Got The Lot

Strange that me of all people should seem to be championing the Ashley Cole cause this weekend but he really impressed me for Chelsea last season and his form and attitude have undoubtedly carried over into the Euros.… Read More

Ashley Cole On England & Unfinished Business

I can’t say I’ve ever thought about it before but Ashley Cole doesn’t really get involved in giving lengthy interviews does he? Obviously, given the way he’s always been portrayed, I don’t blame him. And yet, the most recent interview he’s given, talking about England, is such a far cry from the verbal two-fingers he gave after our Champions League win, it felt almost like a coming of age for the Chelsea defender.… Read More

Chelsea Transfer Rumours: Huntelaar, De Rossi…

According to ‘reports’,  Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is on his way to the Premier League and whilst Fergie is said to have his eye on the Schalke striker, it goes without saying these reports reckon United will have competition from Liverpool, City, Spurs – and of course Chelsea.  Huntelaar has a buy-out clause of £17 million and with 29 goals to his credit last season, it’s felt that’ a small price to pay for Chelsea following Didier Drogba’s departure.… Read More

Didier Drogba: Goodbye, Good Luck

We’ve all known since the end of the season – our Champions League winning season – that Didier Drogba would be leaving us, and yesterday came the confirmation of that with the news that he will leave us for Shanghai when his contract expires at the end of the June.… Read More

Chelsea Champions League Slip-up

Think back to 19th May this year. Brilliant wasn’t it? The overwhelming emotion when that penalty went in and the incredible sight of our players (yes that means John Terry too), lifting the Champions League trophy at last…..… Read More

Chelsea Transfer Rumours: Hulk & Desailly Next Season?

No Premier League and no Euro games last night either, so let’s have a look at the latest rumours doing the rounds during the break:

 

FootballFancast tell us Hulk is keen on a Chelsea move

Vital Chelsea have a look at potential bargains

Football Talk bring us Moses’ response to those rumours

ESPN tell us why there’s no chance of signing Jovetic

And Sport 360 bring us news of a possible return to the fold for Desailly… Read More

Explaining Football To The Doubters…

Years ago now, I was asked to write something in an English class to explain what it is that’s so special about football – no easy task when the majority of the class really weren’t into it and didn’t get what the fuss was all about. This week, with me refusing to go anywhere I’m invited while the Euros are on, I was put in a similar position of trying to explain to a non-football au fait gent (yes, they genuinely exist) what it is about the game that renders me an expletive ranting, hyperactive, nervous-wreck of an individual who refuses to answer the door/phone for at least 90 minutes of each night.… Read More
