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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
