The Real Issue At Chelsea

It’s been a rocky ride at Chelsea this week and from the players to supporters, you won’t find many smiles on faces. In fact, the proverbial ‘furrowed brow’ had nothing on me yesterday every time I saw the dug-out – even a hefty trowel full of polyfilla wasn’t going to help my frown lines.  I’m [...]

CHELSEA v Man City: Preview

                Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 25 November Kick-off: 16.00   I don’t really know what to say about this game if I’m honest. Big game, certainly, but almost pornographic from the press point of view because Chelsea have left themselves completely exposed now. After yet another sacking [...]

Waving My Plastic Flag With Pride

The last time I felt so miserable as a Chelsea supporter, we’d just replaced Jose Mourinho with Avram Grant. Ok, so Di Matteo is no Mourinho but then Jose Mourinho is no Roberto Di Matteo either.

Sacking our Champions League-winning coach makes perfect sense

Let’s be under no illusion here. Roman Abramovich was spot on in sacking Roberto Di Matteo. No question. Di Matteo wasn’t delivering the results Roman craved, and he had to go, it’s really very simple. Chelsea’s performance in Turin was embarrassingly bad. Not only have we conceded 3 goals away from home in a vital [...]

RDM Sacking: Just Not Good Enough Chelsea

Nothing Chelsea does should surprise me anymore, yet to say I’m stunned about the decision and timing of Roberto Di Matteo’s sacking is a massive understatement.  More than stunned though, I’m genuinely gutted. Ok, so we’ve hit a run of poor form (not uncommon for us this time of year) and last night’s result wasn’t [...]

Juventus v CHELSEA: Champions League Preview

Venue: Juventus Stadium Date: Tuesday 20 November Kick-off: 19:45 GMT   Here we go again then, just a couple of days to get over the defeat to West Brom in the league and it’s back to the Champions League and a must-win game away at Juventus. No pressure then!

West Brom 2-1 CHELSEA: Groundhog Day

Not much to say about this one except we seem to be having a re-run of last season right now, so here it is in brief:

West Brom v CHELSEA: Preview

                  Venue: The Hawthorns Date: Saturday, 17 November Kick-off: 15.00 GMT   Our fortunes have definitely turned around recently – and not in our favour – and we’ve seen ourself going from top of the table with a 4-point gap to 3rd with a 3-point deficit. And [...]
