CHELSEA v Burnley: Preview

Date: Saturday 27th August, 2016 Venue: Stamford Bridge’ Kick-off: 15:00 BST This afternoon’s game sees us play host to Burnley at Stamford Bridge. A nice little fixture at this point in the season maybe? Not so, if their last game is anything to go by. Because, whilst today’s visitors didn’t see a lot of the [...]

Watford v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Saturday 20th August, 2016 Venue: Vicarage Road Kick-off: 15:00 BST This afternoon’s game sees up travel to Vicarage Road to take on Watford. Our first game of the season Monday night was harder than it should have. We were head and shoulders the better side against West Ham in a game with more than [...]

CHELSEA v West Ham: Preview

Date: Monday 15th August, 2016 Venue: Stamford Bridge Kick-off: 20:00 BST Here we are then, another season, another Chelsea manager. This year we have Antonio Conte taking charge and given the shambles he inherited after our worst season in years, it’s no secret he’s got his work cut out between now and May. Conte’s first [...]

Chelsea 2016/17 Season: what can we expect?

The new season is upon us, we’ve got a new manager (yet again) and a couple of new players but what’s really changed? According to my Twitter feed, not very much. United and City pat themselves on the back every tweet for their spending prowess and every headline (predictably) has Mourinho as the messiah. Not [...]

Chelsea at Euro 2016 and Copa America 2016

Chelsea may have experienced their worst ever season since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003, but a number of key players still have the chance of winning a trophy. Both the European Championships and the Copa America start this summer, with six Chelsea stars jetting off either to France or to the USA to take [...]

John Terry: Why it’s not a ‘fitting’ end

We all knew the day had to come at some point but it feels maybe a season too soon, and now certainly two games too soon. With the club remaining as tight-lipped, and tight-pocketed as they have all season, it seems John Terry’s Chelsea career has come to an end. There’ll be some of us [...]

CHELSEA 2-2 Spurs: Finally Some Fight

The 2015/16 season is all over now bar the shouting (and a few FA charges) although in reality, ours was over a lot sooner than most. That’s not to write us off completely though because whilst the football and the attitude of our players have stank for most of the season, Monday night’s second half [...]

Chelsea’s Precious One’s Calling the Shots

My relationship with Chelsea Football Club is a love-hate one. Actually that’s not true, of course it’s not, but at times it’s a love-wind me up to the point I could headbutt a wall one. It’s a roller coaster of emotions I kid myself I want to get off sometimes but the reality is that’s [...]

Player petulance or board stupid?

In 2007, it was player power that saw the end of Jose Mourinho’s first spell in charge at Chelsea, fast forward 8 years and history looks to be repeating itself at Stamford Bridge. Just as it did in 2007 with Mourinho, in 2009 with Luiz Felipe Scolari and in 2012 with Andres Villas Boas, the [...]

Mourinho Could Stop The Rot

Remember the famous Mourinho bus that used to park itself firmly in front of our goal? Well I’m not going to suggest the wheels have come off because it would actually be a bonus if that had happened, or at least if it happened in the right place on the pitch. No, as the weeks [...]
