Willian: Welcome To Chelsea

United 0-0 CHELSEA: More Questions Than Answers

As ever, the hype pre-match was a lot more exciting than any of the attacking moves in the game itself but then for me, this rather resembled ten-pin bowling…….. albeit minus the bowling ball. I mean, you’re going to struggle from the start if you’ve forgotten that piece of equipment, right? Well, it seems Jose [...]

United v CHELSEA Preview: From The Fans

Something a bit different to the usual pre-match blog interview this season. Twitter always seems to have plenty to say for itself so ahead of today’s game, @TheChelseaBlog posed a few questions to its followers and here’s a selection of what came back:

Manchester United v CHELSEA: Preview

                Venue: Old Trafford Date: Monday, August 26 2013 Kick-off: 20.00 BST. Our game this weekend sees us travel to Old Trafford this evening to face Manchester United where Moyes’ first home game in charge pits him up against Jose Mourinho in his first trip back there as [...]

Moyes Making Fewer Friends Than Foes

If I start criticising David Moyes, the assumption will be it’s because he’s managing United, whatever, I’m going to do it anyway.

More Worried About Willian Than Spurs

Of course, these were purely distraction techniques – diverting their attention away from the fact that we really should have conceded a penalty. But then considering Ivanovic was fortunate [...]

CHELSEA v Villa: Preview

                Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Wednesday, 21 August Kick-off: 19.45 GMT   So, Jose Mourinho got his new Chelsea reign off to a decent start with a solid performance and win at home to Hull at the weekend.  He sent us out all guns blazing and to be [...]

CHELSEA 2-0 Hull: Happy Homecoming

Out like lions and in like …….(not lambs exactly) calmer lions maybe? Whilst there were plenty giving it all that ‘typical Mourinho’ nonsense, I certainly wouldn’t complain about yesterday’s game. Rampant in the first 45, the game was effectively won by half-time, giving us the luxury of sitting back and soaking up anything Hull could [...]

CHELSEA v Hull: Preview

                  Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 18 August Kick-off: 16.00   Rumour has it we kick off the 2013/14 season against some outfit by the name of Hull City Tigers so we shouldn’t be surprised if they come out of the tunnel in shoulder pads and helmets [...]
