Deadline day: Will Nabil Fekir sign for Chelsea?

deadline day

We’ve certainly sprung into action in the past couple of days in the transfer window. Following a very quiet window involving the signing of only Jorginho from Napoli, Chelsea splashed out £71 million to bring in goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga from Athletic Bilbao, as a replacement for the outgoing Thibaut Courtois. We have also agreed a loan deal for Real Madrid’s Mateo Kovacic, adding more depth and experience to the midfield.… Read More

Transfer news: European giants want to sign Chelsea winger

Winger Kenedy’s loan move to Newcastle United is panning out very well indeed. Since moving to St. James’ Park inin January, he has started every one of their eight Premier League games, recording 2 goals and 2 assists thus far. His best performance came last month at home against Southamptin, where he scored a brace that included a truly wonderful solo effort.… Read More

Sunderland v CHELSEA: Talking to the opposition

Ahead of tomorrow’s game against Sunderland, The Chelsea Blog had a chat with Colin from Salut! Sunderland.

Salut! Sunderland: Welcome back. I think it’s been five years since you sat in the “Who are You?” hot seat and you’ve had a lot better than the present season. It cannot all be Mourinho’s fault.Read More

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 was intended as chastisement for poor performances or with an eye on Arsenal at the weekend, it was effective.… Read More

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 side in the second and were unlucky not to pinch it late on.… Read More

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 here.… Read More

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 response (or lack of) to the spanking we took.… Read More
