Man City 1-1 CHELSEA: Not Bad For A Small Team

Possibly at the start of the game but definitely at half-time we’d have taken a draw. By the time Zabaleta was rightly sent off in the second half though, you’d have to think the game was ours for the taking. Any disappointment with a point away against the current Premier League champions isn’t spoilt brat [...]

CHELSEA 1-1 Schalke: In a Nutshell

I did say in the match preview, I don’t like going into games with excessive confidence – and last night’s result is the reason why. Complacent Street is never a comfortable place to be and yet, after going a goal up, that’s exactly where Chelsea appeared to take a stroll. Couple that with a few [...]

Steaua 0-4 Chelsea: More Cruise Than Crisis

Last time out in Europe we had a bad night, so this was one of them clichéd ‘must win’ games.  As it turns out, we didn’t just win it, we did so emphatically with a few more positives for Jose Mourinho to tuck under his belt as the work he’s put in (and the stick [...]

Spurs 1-1 CHELSEA: Torres Clawing His Way Back To Form

No handbags at dawn in the dugouts, whatever the press might have us believe, but the claws were definitely out on the pitch – or at least Torres’ were anyway. Gutting to see him go off for a non-offence in the end though, given it was the best performance we’ve seen from him in a [...]

CHELSEA 2-1 Villa: Lambert Left Livid

So, 2 games in and the sight of Jose Mourinho throwing his arms up in the air at the officials was like he’d never been away. Of course, these were purely distraction techniques – diverting their attention away from the fact that we really should have conceded a penalty. But then considering Ivanovic was fortunate [...]

CHELSEA 2-0 Hull: Happy Homecoming

Out like lions and in like …….(not lambs exactly) calmer lions maybe? Whilst there were plenty giving it all that ‘typical Mourinho’ nonsense, I certainly wouldn’t complain about yesterday’s game. Rampant in the first 45, the game was effectively won by half-time, giving us the luxury of sitting back and soaking up anything Hull could [...]

CHELSEA 2-1 Sunderland: Lady Luck Shows Some Form

It didn’t look great for us at half-time, but a bit of good fortune got us back into it and we capitalised on the slip from Spurs in their earlier game. So, here’s how it went:

CHELSEA 1-0 United: Sublime Strike & Save Take Us To Wembley

So, the interim’s plan to put all his eggs in the FA Cup basket paid off this weekend. I’m still aggrieved his priorities don’t seem to be in line with those that really matter to us but a win over United will always be welcome. So, here’s how it happened:

Man City 2-0 CHELSEA: So much for bridging the gap!

Another day and another soul destroying game to endure, except this time we didn’t sneak any late goals to paper the cracks with. Did I say cracks? Of course I meant gaping great chasms! I honestly haven’t got it in me to rake through the debris, so here’s a few who can:

CHELSEA 4-0 Brentford: Old Boys Fighting Back?

In spite of FSW, it seems we can still win consecutive games – in different competitions no less – and neither JT nor Lampard are past it. So, here’s a summing up of our 4-0 win:   The full match report comes from the official CFC There’s opposition opinion from West London Sport Bleacher Report [...]
