Everton 3-6 CHELSEA: The Fast and the Furious

Think Crank meets the Fast and the Furious and that sort of sums up events at Goodison yesterday. The whole game was like one long action sequence, with pauses for goals. We played keep-ball for a whole 35 seconds before Diego Costa started us off with his third goal for Chelsea this season – not [...]

Everton v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Goodison Park Date: Saturday, 30 August Kick-off: 17:30 Today’s late game sees us travel to Goodison Park for a game against an Everton side without a win so far. Not that The Toffees have been particularly poor at the start of this season although their defence might have been guilty of a little jet-lag [...]

CHELSEA 2-0 Leicester: Jose Labels Players ‘Lazy’

We may have been on cloud nine after the opening game of the season against Burnley but the first half against Leicester seemed to bring us back down to earth. The showboat was a bit out at sea for the first 45 minutes, in a display Mourinho called “lazy”, right after he’d given the players [...]

CHELSEA v Leicester: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 23 August Kick-off: 15:00 GMT Monday night saw a really impressive start to the season from Chelsea, with the sort of football mere words don’t really do justice. The fact that Arsenal’s response to Fabregas’ performance was to get bent out of shape, sums up the bargain we’ve bagged with [...]

Why Chelsea Have it Right Now

So, United kicked off the 2014/15 campaign with their first home defeat of the season out of the way. Not the end of the world really although probably not what they’d have expected given they hadn’t lost on the opening day at Old Trafford since 1972 and Swansea had never won there in the Premier [...]

Burnley 1-3 CHELSEA: Fifty Shades of Fabregas

After what was quite an uninspiring opening weekend to the new season, football arrived last night – in style. If we’d been expecting an improvement following the changes in personnel over the summer, we weren’t left wanting either. Costa opened his account for us, Courtois pulled off a ridiculously good save but it was Cesc [...]

Burnley v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Turf Moor Date: Monday, 18 August Kick-off: 20:00 GMT At long last our first game of the season is here and it’s an away fixture against Burnley to kick off our 2014/15 campaign. An easy one considering the Betfair betting odds for the game, you might think? Well there’s no such thing as an [...]

The 2014/15 Season: Jose Knows

Our Premier League campaign might not kick-off until Monday but in yesterday’s press conference, Jose Mourinho sounded more than ready for the new season. Our first XI might be a different matter, with the Chelsea boss confirming ‚ÄúProbably the first two or three matches will be more about the team that is ready than what [...]

Will ‘The More Carefully Selected One’ Match Mourinho?

Remember this time last year when United were making lame comparisons between their Chosen One and The Special One? Of course, that initial and as it turned out, naive crowing only added to the hilarity as the season progressed – although theirs didn’t really, did it? Whilst Jose Mourinho walked us through the season, always [...]

Pre-season 2014/15: Tears, Tantrums & Testosterone

From the stagnation that is closed season, pre-season proper is a time for speculation, excitation and potentially even ejaculation, or at least pre-season on Twitter is. With testosterone levels increasing on an almost tweet by tweet basis, shoulders are squared, chests puffed out and keyboards undoubtedly hammered as one-upmanship starts in earnest.
