Arsenal v CHELSEA: Preview

                Venue: Emirates Stadium Date: Monday, 23 December Kick-off: 20.00 GMT Well, Arsenal were well and truly found out in their last game with a 6-3 defeat to City but then our exit to Sunderland in the cup wasn’t exactly convincing either. So probably the less we dwell [...]

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 [...]

Chelsea Injuries: Cahill & Cole

So, we get a win against United but it costs us Ashley Cole. Our left-back looked for a minute as if he’d given up the chase down the wing this afternoon although a second looked saw him pull-up with a hamstring injury that’ll see him out of action for the next couple of weeks.

Chelsea’s Busiest Recruit?

Chelsea Injury Update: John Terry – And Why It’s Not All Good News

  Well, the replays and stills we saw might not have pointed to it Sunday but it seems John Terry’s injury doesn’t look to be anything too serious after all with a statement on the club’s website saying “Today’s MRI scans on John Terry’s right knee thankfully show no significant damage to the cruciate ligaments.  [...]

Chelsea’s Euro Injury Update

We really haven’t had a lot of luck in the Euros with injuries have we? So far, we’ve seen both Frank Lampard and Gary Cahill miss out altogether, whilst both John Terry and Ashley Cole have had niggles. Now though, it’s Petr Cech.

Euro Injury Watch: Cahill & Terry

Two friendlies in, the Euros haven’t even started and our players seem to be dropping like flies. With Frank Lampard already out of the Euros altogether with a thigh injury, yesterday’s game saw both John Terry and Gary Cahill leave the field injured.
