CHELSEA v Manchester United: League Cup Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Date: Wednesday, 31 October

Kick-off: 19.45 GMT

 

Back to the scene of the crime tonight then – of course I’m referring to the robbery we were subjected to in the Premier League on Sunday – although this time it’s the League Cup and whilst we’d usually place a lot less importance on this game as a rule, the injustice at the weekend is still raw enough to not really want to lose again.… Read More

Chelsea’s ‘Annus Horribilis’ Continues

Back in November 1992 a pretty well known woman reflected on the year gone by and decided it had been pretty grim all round really. Ten years on and I can’t help but find myself doing much the same thing.

Of course I don’t have her fame (or money, more’s the pity) and the horrible events she was looking back at were probably more serious than a football supporters’ woes to be fair but nonetheless, she summed it up perfectly by declaring “1992 is not a year on which I shall look back with undiluted pleasure.Read More

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Date: Sunday, 28 October

Kick-off: 16.00 GMT

 

If I’m honest, I’m dreading this game a bit. I know we’ve been the better side in the league so far this season but the game midweek unnerved me a bit.

Exactly how improbable was Chelsea’s run to European glory last season? Well let’s take a look at how the bookmaker’s saw Chelsea’s chances as the Champions League 2011/2012 edition evolved.… Read More

Reaction: We’ve got the Substance to go with the Style

What a game that was against Spurs last weekend. It had goals, an exciting twist, and sweetest
of all we beat one of our biggest rivals in their own backyard.  As if crucifying Tottenham at Wembley in the FA cup semi-final, and then pinching their Champions League place right at the death wasn’t enough, now we’ve gone and taken all three points in our first clash with our old minder AVB.… Read More

Is It Football Or The Fans At Fault?

The hypocrisy in football never ceases to amaze me. I mean seriously, we all do it at some point and it’s laughable most of the time but then occasionally, it starts to grate a bit.

I’ve lost count of the arguments I’ve had over the years with opposition supporters who’ve claimed some of our players have thought they were bigger than the club, or that they’ve ‘brought shame’ on the club and still been held in such esteemed positions by our fans.… Read More
