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 [...]

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 [...]

CHELSEA 6-0 Maribor: Hurricane Hazard Hits Stamford Bridge

Whilst hurricane Gonzalo threatened to infiltrate Britain, at Stamford Bridge it was all a bit of a breeze for Chelsea against Maribor in the Champions League. Despite previous draws against Schalke and Sporting, last night proved to be a wake up call for the visitors, with their goal given a bit of a battering. Ok, [...]

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 [...]

CHELSEA 3-0 Newcastle: Hazard A Real Thoroughbred

Well, well, our little horse looked like a thoroughbred compared to the lame mare of Man City and Arsenal’s little donkey. Words just aren’t enough to capture what Eden Hazard brings to Chelsea this season, but here’s a few that will try to sum up his contribution in today’s 3-0 win: Match report comes courtesy [...]

Hull 0-2 CHELSEA: Bruce’s Tigers Tamed

So, we get to sit at the top of the table (at least for a few hours), thanks to goals from Hazard and Torres – not to mention the record breaking Petr Cech for not conceding. The game itself was pretty much about patience and digging in, as you’d expect against Steve Bruce’s dogged Hull [...]

Derby 0-2 CHELSEA: Rams Tired Rather Than Battered

A decent enough FA Cup game with Derby proving difficult to break down. It’s becoming a bit of a familiar habit again for Mourinho’s intervention to make the difference and so, with the Rams tiring and a couple of Chelsea subs, we managed to wear the opposition down. Here’s how it went: As ever, the [...]
