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

Everton 3-6 CHELSEA: The Fast and the Furious


Think Crank meets the Fast and the Furious and that sort of sums up events at Goodison yesterday. The whole game was like one long action sequence, with pauses for goals.
We played keep-ball for a whole 35 seconds before Diego Costa started us off with his third goal for Chelsea this season – not bad for a player who’s hamstring injury was reported to look like keeping him out for six weeks.… Read More

CHELSEA 2-0 Leicester: Jose Labels Players ‘Lazy’


We may have been on cloud nine after the opening game of the season against Burnley but the first half against Leicester seemed to bring us back down to earth.
The showboat was a bit out at sea for the first 45 minutes, in a display Mourinho called “lazy”, right after he’d given the players the benefit of his vocal chords.… Read More

Burnley 1-3 CHELSEA: Fifty Shades of Fabregas


After what was quite an uninspiring opening weekend to the new season, football arrived last night – in style.
If we’d been expecting an improvement following the changes in personnel over the summer, we weren’t left wanting either. Costa opened his account for us, Courtois pulled off a ridiculously good save but it was Cesc Fabregas who really impressed.… 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
