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 bad for a player who’s hamstring injury was reported to look like keeping him out for six weeks.… Read More

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 from their summer holidays.… Read More

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 the benefit of his vocal chords.… Read More

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 his signing though.… Read More

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 League before Saturday either.… Read More

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 Fabregas who really impressed.… Read More

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?… Read More

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 “Probably the first two or three matches will be more about the team that is ready than what I have in my mind as a first-team choice,” but that doesn’t seem to be bothering him unnecessarily.… Read More

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 with a focus on building for the future, for David Moyes, a future with Manchester United was harder to see with every passing game.… Read More

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.… Read More
