Lukaku Loan: Just Common Sense


With the haul from our strikers as scant this season as a Mylie Cyrus hemline, it’s not all that surprising Jose Mourinho has had the loan of Romelu Lukaku thrown at him on an almost weekly basis – or is it?
Whilst Chelsea have had to rely on goals from anywhere but our frontmen, Lukaku is on 9 for Everton before we even move into 2014, so naturally questions will be asked – but isn’t the answer really just common sense (aka sound management)?… Read More

CHELSEA v Liverpool: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Date: Sunday, 29 December

Kick-off: 16.00 GMT

This afternoon’s game sees the reunion of Jose Mourinho and Brendan Rodgers, who was of course at Chelsea as reserve team manager during Jose’s first spell at the club. Unfortunately, it also sees the reunion of Branislav Ivanovic and Luis Suarez after ‘that’ biting incident.… Read More

Wenger 0-1 Mourinho


You have to love Jose Mourinho (although apparently some don’t). While Wenger was getting all bent out of shape over their ‘penalty’ appeal and Arteta’s bruised ankle (completely ignoring that challenge on Azpilicueta by the way), Mourinho was pointing out what pussies they all are.
Ok, it wasn’t our best performance (again) but going into last night’s game, given the comparison in form of both teams we probably would have taken the idea of a point.… Read More

Arsenal v CHELSEA: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Venue: Emirates Stadium

Date: Monday, 23 December

Kick-off: 20.00 GMT

Well, Arsenal were well and truly found out in their last game with a 6-3 defeat to City but then our exit to Sunderland in the cup wasn’t exactly convincing either. So probably the less we dwell on recent form the better going into tonight’s away game at the Emirates.… Read More

CHELSEA v Crystal Palace: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Date: Saturday, 14 December

Kick-off: 15.00 GMT

There was plenty of sulking and finger-pointing after last week’s defeat away at Stoke so we’d better have our act back together again for today’s home game against Crystal Palace or bottom-lips will definitely be a trip hazard on the way out of Stamford Bridge this afternoon.… Read More

Chelsea: Reverting To The Blame Game?

What a difference a week makes. One minute we’re ecstatic after a hard fought 3 points away – the 3 goals conceded overlooked in favour of our fighting spirit in the triumph – the next, we concede the same amount of goals in defeat away and the six goals together are a sign of our impending downfall.… Read More

Stoke 3-2 CHELSEA: The Aftermath

Well, yesterday’s game has certainly caused much stamping of feet and tantrums following a bit of a defensive disaster (again). Is the end of the Chelsea world really nigh though or is it just a blot on the landscape in our picture perfect world? My guess is it’s somewhere between the two and we need to learn from it, dust ourselves off and move on.… Read More

Stoke v CHELSEA: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Venue: Britannia Stadium

Date: 7th December 2013

Kick-off: 15.00 GMT

Our game midweek brought a win over former Chelsea man Gus Poyet for Jose Mourinho, with Chelsea making hard work of it with the defence taking fourty winks at some inopportune moments. It wasn’t all bad though because the trip to Sunderland brought out the best in Eden Hazard, who undoubtedly had anyone who appreciates genuine talent salivating – and in spite of a bout of defensive hiccups, we still came away with a win.… Read More

SUNDERLAND v CHELSEA: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Venue: Stadium of Light

Date: 4 December 2013

Kick-off: 19.45 GMT

Well, we had a dodgy first half against Southampton at the weekend after being stunned by their early opener courtesy of Essien’s gift of a back pass but with the sort of fighting spirit we know Jose Mourinho has a habit of instilling in his teams, it really was one of those games ‘of two halves’. … Read More
