CHELSEA 4-0 Maccabi: Normal service resumed?

So finally we get a win again, albeit against Europe’s equivalent of Accrington Stanley but as the cliché goes – you can only beat what’s in front of you – and to be fair, 4-0 was a convincing win. Jose rang the changes, dropping Ivanovic, JT, Matic and Costa to the bench and whether that [...]

CHELSEA v Swansea: Preview

Courtesy of watching Tom Jones gyrate last night, it’s a short round up of previews out and about today. Here’s a selection on Chelsea’s opening game in their title defence at home to Swansea today: Pre match briefing from the official CFC Two minute preview from Walesonline Full preview from Sky Sports Team news, line-ups [...]

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 [...]

CHELSEA v Man City: Talking to the Opposition

Ahead of this evening’s late game against City, The Chelsea Blog very politely answered a few questions for Blue Moon – and then got duly slated on the City forum for everything from being arrogant to not being cocky enough! As bad as their neighbours really. Anyway, you can have a read of Her Boring-ness [...]

Spurs 5-3 CHELSEA: No Defence Offered

I’m not really sure what to say after yesterday’s game. Whilst I agree with Jose in terms of the handball/penalty decision, I don’t think this is a result we could blame anyone but the boss and players for. I don’t understand how we could play in the manner we did and I don’t understand Mourinho’s [...]

Southampton 1-1 CHELSEA: No Luck, No Judgement

So, 1-all it finished but given our dominance in the second half and Fabregas’ yellow card for daring to be fouled in the area, we can probably consider ourselves unlucky not to have taken all 3 points at St Mary’s. On the other hand, some say you make your own luck – and we didn’t [...]

CHELSEA 2-0 Hull: Points Deserved

There was an abundance of bookings in this one yesterday, some justified, some less so. A fully deserved red card for Huddlestone, a completely unjust booking for Costa again and overall, a ref who completely lost control of a game in which a couple of our players embarrassed us a bit. At the end of [...]

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 [...]
