CHELSEA v Everton: Preview

Date: Sunday 27th August, 2017
Venue: Stamford Bridge
Kick-off: 13:30 BST

After the hysterics that followed the Burnley game, last week quietened things down a bit, but the reality is it was Spurs at Wembley so the odds were always in our favour.
Today, it’s Everton and with Wayne Rooney back at a club where he’s genuinely valued, we’ll probably have a tougher test than last week.… Read More

Chelsea vs Everton: Blues must continue momentum after Tottenham victory

Chelsea return to Premier League action on Sunday as Everton are the visitors to Stamford Bridge, with Antonio Conte’s men looking for three points to go into the international break with spirits high.

The Blues remain the team to beat this term after last season’s momentous Premier League title success, but retaining English football’s top crown looks set to be a more-difficult task in 2017-18.… Read More

Tottenham v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 20th August, 2017
Venue: Wembley Stadium
Kick-off: 16:00 BST

I’m not sure who wrote the script for our opening game of the season but the critics have fallen over themselves to give their two-pence worth for the last week.
Conte’s not supported by the board, Conte’s the villain, Costa’s treated like a criminal, the title’s already gone to United, Willian’s not trusted….whatever angle there might, or might not be, we’ve read them all – and more – and at the end of the onslaught, Antonio Conte laughed his arse off.… Read More

CHELSEA 2-3 Burnley: False Start for Chelsea

You know when the gun goes off at the start of a race and there’s someone with their foot trapped in the starting blocks and they try to free it but their shoe comes off? No me neither, but if Chelsea were Olympic sprinters………..you get the picture.
It’s fair to say it took us a while to get out of the starting blocks yesterday and yet another red card thrown into the mix, this time for Gary Cahill, didn’t help much either.… Read More

CHELSEA v Burnley: Preview

Date: Saturday 12th August, 2017
Venue: Stamford Bridge
Kick-off: 15:00 BST

After a ‘summer’ of whinging, today sees the start of a new season – and probably more whinging, as we play host to Burnley.
Last weekend’s Community Shield didn’t go our way in the penalty shoot out and not only did we lose Pedro to an unnecessary red card but we’ve also lost him to an ankle injury, so he’s yet another player out of our ever-decreasing squad.… Read More

Arsenal 1-1 CHELSEA (4-1 pens): No ABBA fans here

As Community Shields go, it was more of a curtain twitcher than a curtain raiser but it gave the neurotic section of support a trial run to the supermarket for their pampers, so all was not lost. … Read More

Arsenal v CHELSEA: Community Shield Preview

Date: Sunday 6th August, 2017
Venue: Wembley Stadium
Kick-off: 14:00 BST

Today’s game between the two sides equals the most played fixture at the new Wembley, along with Chelsea v Spurs and Chelsea v Manchester United (four each), so clearly we’re not shy of the venue. In fact, it’s only 10 weeks since our last visit, even if we failed to turn up against Arsenal in the FA Cup.… Read More
