Arsenal v CHELSEA: League Cup Preview

Venue: Emirates Stadium

Date: Tuesday, 29 October

Kick-off: 19.45 GMT

 

Well they say there’s no rest for the wicked, so we must be on that list because less than 48 hours after our late win against City, it’s away at Arsenal tonight in the Capital One cup.

It goes without saying Jose Mourinho isn’t impressed with the scheduling but the Chelsea manager, who won the League cup twice in his first spell in charge at Chelsea is likely to utilise several of our players who didn’t feature at the weekend.… Read More

CHELSEA v Manchester City: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Date: Sunday, 27 October

Kick-off: 16.00 GMT

 

It’s a home game against City in today’s late kick-off and hopefully a better return than last season’s drab 0-0.

Of course much has changed since then. City have added to an already quality side but then so have we, so we can’t have any complaints there.… Read More

CHELSEA v City: Talking To The Opposition

Ahead of tomorrow’s game against City, The Chelsea Blog and Chelseadaft answered a few questions for the opposition over at Bluemoon. Here’s how it went:… Read More

CHELSEA v Cardiff: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Date: Saturday 19 October

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 15.00 GMT

 

Well, the internationals are sorted again for now and England are off to Brazil. As for Chelsea, we’re staying at home today, with Cardiff coming to town.

For a change, much of the gossip going into today’s game has been around the visitors, or at least their manager’s position after the owner replaced their head of recruitment with an inexperienced 23 year old.… Read More

Chelsea On Collision Course With FA Now?

I have a feeling Chelsea might be in for a rocky ride with the FA.  Not that we haven’t had our issues with them before of course, but with Dick van Greg Dyke appearing less than subtle in his dislike for Chelsea FC, let’s just call it intuition.… Read More

England: Why Wilshere Isn’t Wrong

Jack Wilshere saying he thinks English players should play for England is a bit like saying professional football players shouldn’t smoke – you know it’s the ideal but there’s bound to be some who don’t agree with it, eh Jack?

I mean, in theory you’d think it was pretty black and white but in practice, once everyone from TV pundit, journalists and supporters, right down to the landlord in the local have stirred their bit in, it all becomes a bit grey – because it leaves us with the problem of the England squad not being good enough.… Read More

Mourinho: Why All The Questions?

From Twitter to MOTD Jose Mourinho is questioned week in, week out. From team selection to transfers, it’s analysed, criticized and second guessed. In fact, whatever Jose’s done is usually the exact opposite of what every pundit, be it armchair amateur or studio, would advocate – and yet, Jose Mourinho is the only one of those with a side sitting 3rd in the Premier League table.… Read More

Norwich v CHELSEA: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Venue: Carrow Road

Date: Sunday, 6 October

Kick-off: 13.30 GMT

 

Right, no time for hanging about, it’s Norwich away today for us in the early kick-off. Results haven’t gone quite as much in our favour this weekend as they did last week, so we have to get a result to keep up now.… Read More

Steaua 0-4 Chelsea: More Cruise Than Crisis

Last time out in Europe we had a bad night, so this was one of them clichéd ‘must win’ games.  As it turns out, we didn’t just win it, we did so emphatically with a few more positives for Jose Mourinho to tuck under his belt as the work he’s put in (and the stick he’s taken for it) showed real signs of paying off.… Read More
