Chatting Courtois

Almost through the season, so thought I’d take a look back at one of our key player’s contribution – Thibaut Courtois – and to help me do that, I’ve had a chat with Ah Lau, better known in Singapore as Home United keeper Mohamed Hyrulnizam Bin Jumaat. So, here’s his take:

Chelsea Must Cash In On Salah This Summer

Mohammed Salah has been somewhat of an inconsistent player during his career. When he was at Basel, the Egyptian winger terrorized defenses, scoring several goals while at the Swiss club. After impressing Mr. Abramovich, scoring 3 goals against Chelsea in 4 games, Salah earned a big move to West London. Since his transfer Salah has [...]

John Terry: Adored and Abhorred

Love him or loathe him, they can’t ignore him and the critics will have him around for a while yet because this week, John Terry has signed another 12 month contract at Chelsea. The fact that the Chelsea captain has earned an 18th professional season is an absolute credit to him as a player and [...]

The Greatest Gift the Blues Can Receive is Patience

As the football world is becoming even more popular, a new caliber of fan has been born. This new character amongst the sport is typically very passionate, smart (sometimes too smart), and can even be relatively wealthy. These new additions are great for football both globally and in England. However, this new found passion, coupled [...]

Mourinho’s Options on the Bench

Chelsea have finally reached the business end of the campaign. There is no more time for mistakes, figuring out preferred squads, or trying new tactics. Our starting 11 is pretty much set, barring injuries or slight rotation. Assuming Oscar is preferred to start over Ramires, we will discuss the Blue’s options coming off the bench, [...]

Is It Really Football That’s Toxic?

Last summer, John Bieniewicz, a referee in America was punched and knocked out by a football player he was trying to send off. Bieniewicz, a husband and father, died two days later and, last week, the player was quite rightly sent to prison. An absolute tragedy for his family and a stain on football for [...]

CHELSEA 1-1 Southampton: Advancing Slowly

The draw and performance might not have blown us away but given a six point lead with a game in hand at the start of the weekend – then after a two hour game midweek, we probably would have taken it. After a poor first half, we took the game to a very resilient Southampton [...]

Azpilicueta Has Won the Battle of Left Backs

César Azpilicueta is the best defensive fullback in the Premier League. At age 25 he is growing into the strongest one-on-one defenders in the world, and he isn’t even playing in his natural position. He was asked to deputize long-time Chelsea left back, Ashley Cole last season, and the Spaniard hasn’t looked back since. “Dave” [...]

United 1-1 CHELSEA: One Man & His Whistle

Shall I have a rant or just accept the draw gracefully? I won’t be celebrating the draw, I know that much. I won’t argue they had a marginally better first half than us but then, getting away with synchronised WWF moves in the box would give most sides the upper hand to be honest. As [...]

CHELSEA 6-0 Maribor: Hurricane Hazard Hits Stamford Bridge

Whilst hurricane Gonzalo threatened to infiltrate Britain, at Stamford Bridge it was all a bit of a breeze for Chelsea against Maribor in the Champions League. Despite previous draws against Schalke and Sporting, last night proved to be a wake up call for the visitors, with their goal given a bit of a battering. Ok, [...]
