CHELSEA 2-0 West Brom: Boing! Boing!

You probably won’t read much about it because there was a late game on for 4th place but just to be clear, Chelsea remain unbeaten in the Premier League after yet another impressive display against West Brom yesterday. Realistically, the game was won before half time in 45 minutes of football Jose Mourinho described as [...]

Liverpool 1-2 CHELSEA: Tidy Job From Jose

I had an uneasy feeling about this game before the start, even more so once we’d gone a goal down. I should have had more faith because as it turned out, it was litter rather than points we were guilty of dropping yesterday. Not the best start we’ve had to a game although they could [...]

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 [...]

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:
