Strange Sort of Justice

It’s one thing the hacks jumping all over Jose Mourinho’s comments about yet another inept refereeing decision yesterday, after all, some parts of the British public might even waste the few minutes it takes to read their drivel but Garth Crooks? Really? If we’re supposed to take anything he has to say seriously, then I’d [...]

Mourinho: A Campaign Against Chelsea

Another game, another penalty claim, another yellow card – it’s a conspiracy I tell you! Flippant? Probably but then whilst I might not agree entirely with Jose on this one in terms of a deliberate ‘campaign’, I certainly didn’t agree with Souness saying Mourinho made a ‘massive’ deal of it ‘to put pressure on the [...]

Southampton 1-1 CHELSEA: No Luck, No Judgement

So, 1-all it finished but given our dominance in the second half and Fabregas’ yellow card for daring to be fouled in the area, we can probably consider ourselves unlucky not to have taken all 3 points at St Mary’s. On the other hand, some say you make your own luck – and we didn’t [...]

Southampton v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: St Mary’s Stadium Date: Sunday 28th December Kick-off: 14:05 GMT This afternoon’s early kick-off sees us travel to St Mary’s for an away fixture against Southampton. The Saints come into this game back up to fourth in the Premier League after their four-game losing streak was put to bed with back to back wins [...]

CHELSEA v West Ham: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Friday, 26 December Kick-off: 12:45 GMT Today’s early Boxing Day kick-off sees us play host to West Ham. They frustrated us in this fixture early in 2014 when they came and parked their bus, or should that be coach and horses after Jose’s ’19th century’ comments? This time round, West Ham [...]

Happy Christmas Blues

The Chelsea Blog would like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy, Happy New year

Stoke v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Britannia Stadium Date: Monday, 22 December Kick-off: 20:00 GMT I’m not a fan of games on a Monday night, even less so when we’ve had to wait it out with City winning at the weekend and drawing level with us in the table. Not that we should be worrying what the opposition are doing [...]

CHELSEA 2-0 Hull: Points Deserved

There was an abundance of bookings in this one yesterday, some justified, some less so. A fully deserved red card for Huddlestone, a completely unjust booking for Costa again and overall, a ref who completely lost control of a game in which a couple of our players embarrassed us a bit. At the end of [...]

CHELSEA v Hull: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 13 December Kick-off: 15:00 In spite of press reports predicting we were just about washed up after we’d lost our first game of the season to Newcastle last week, our response against Sporting Lisbon should have demonstrated we’re some distance from being on the ropes yet. Of course, we’ll play [...]
