Top 5 candidates to replace Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager

It would be very surprising if Antonio Conte remained at the helm at Stamford Bridge. To be very honest, I’m very surprised he’s still here. Apparently, it’s going to cost the club £9 million in severance fees to sack him. Either way, the Italian’s lack of passion on the touchline and disinterested interviews mean that the writing is very clearly on the wall.… Read More

Chelsea’s longest-serving player set to leave the club

Goalkeeper Matej Delac has signed a contract to join Danish side AC Horsens in the summer, according to internet-based newspaper Bold.dkThe Croatian, who has been on our book since 2010, is currently the longest-serving player at Stamford Bridge, after John Terry’s departure last summer.

Incredibly though, he will leave without making a single competitive appearance for the club.… Read More

Why Edin Dzeko to Chelsea doesn’t make much sense

Diego Costa’s exit was possibly the worst thing that happened to us last summer. We’ve talked a lot about our defence and midfield, but the Spaniard’s ability to single-handedly win us crucial points has what has been most sorely missed. We signed Alvaro Morata for 58 million, but he hasn’t really set the world alight despite a very good start.… Read More

Will Antonio Conte start playing Ross Barkley in his best position?

Ross Barkley is set to return to full training next week, as reported here by the Telegraphafter recovering from a hamstring injury that has kept him out since January. The former Everton man only joined us in Jan for a bargain sum of £15 million, and has made an appearance each in the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup.… Read More

Lampard v Chelsea: does he sky it or score?


Widespread pictures of Frank Lampard in a Manchester City shirt made my heart ache a little yesterday. In fact more than that, I actually winced at the sight. Why? He left Chelsea this summer after 13 years of service, so it’s entirely up to him where he plays out the remainder of his career.… Read More

Chelsea Dwelling on the Past?


It might be silly season, with Chelsea linked with everyone except Joey Barton so far but the link with a return for Didier Drogba at least gives us something to debate. … Read More

CHELSEA v Galatasaray: Preview


Venue: Stamford Bridge
Date: 18 March 2014
Kick-off: 19.45 GMT

With Chelsea’s lack of strike force this season, there’ll have been plenty of times we’ve longed for Didier Drogba back but none of us would have opted to see him back in someone else’s colours. That’s how it is though because tonight we see our former Ivorian striker running towards us on Galatasaray’s behalf in the Champions League.… Read More

Bison Bids Chelsea Farewell


So after some nonsense in the Italian rags, it’s been confirmed Michael Essien has indeed passed his medical at AC Milan.

A Mata of Motive?


I’ve had to sit back a bit this week and soak up the mass hysteria as Chelsea sell one of our best ever signings to a rival club in the Premier League……and not just any rival club either, because as even the remotest of Inuit tribes running around the Arctic with their harpoons will by now be aware, Chelsea have sold Juan Mata to Manchester United.… Read More
