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 do enough of that on the day.… Read More

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.… Read More

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 ‘amazing’, with Eden Hazard and Diego Costa terrorising the Baggies defence.… Read More

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 consider themselves extremely lucky with a deflected opener.… Read More

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.… Read More

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.… Read More

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 syndrome though, it’s simply a reflection of our strength so far this season.… Read More

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 missed chances, a striker we adore but who, realistically isn’t quite match fit and a bit of a defensive lapse and what we have Ladies and Gentlemen – is really not the end of the world.… Read More

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:

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 City but it paid off in the end.… Read More
