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 [...]

Stoke 3-2 CHELSEA: The Aftermath

Well, yesterday’s game has certainly caused much stamping of feet and tantrums following a bit of a defensive disaster (again). Is the end of the Chelsea world really nigh though or is it just a blot on the landscape in our picture perfect world? My guess is it’s somewhere between the two and we need [...]

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 [...]

Spurs 1-1 CHELSEA: Torres Clawing His Way Back To Form

No handbags at dawn in the dugouts, whatever the press might have us believe, but the claws were definitely out on the pitch – or at least Torres’ were anyway. Gutting to see him go off for a non-offence in the end though, given it was the best performance we’ve seen from him in a [...]

CHELSEA 2-0 Fulham: Critics in Crisis Now?

If anyone has managed to wade through various tweets/back pages/football forums etc dedicated  almost solely to Juan Mata’s non-selection, they might have picked up the merest hint that a game was actually taking place at Stamford Bridge.  Before that game, we had suffered one narrow defeat in the Premier League to Everton but the mass [...]

Everton 1-0 CHELSEA: Reviews

Ok, so as bad days at the office go, this one was reminiscent of Monday morning with a hangover but we all have them. And it was maybe a little worrying that Samuel Eto’o looked about as likely to score against Everton as I would be with David Beckham but one can only presume the [...]

United 0-0 CHELSEA: More Questions Than Answers

As ever, the hype pre-match was a lot more exciting than any of the attacking moves in the game itself but then for me, this rather resembled ten-pin bowling…….. albeit minus the bowling ball. I mean, you’re going to struggle from the start if you’ve forgotten that piece of equipment, right? Well, it seems Jose [...]

CHELSEA 2-1 Villa: Lambert Left Livid

So, 2 games in and the sight of Jose Mourinho throwing his arms up in the air at the officials was like he’d never been away. Of course, these were purely distraction techniques – diverting their attention away from the fact that we really should have conceded a penalty. But then considering Ivanovic was fortunate [...]
