Why Chelsea Have it Right Now

So, United kicked off the 2014/15 campaign with their first home defeat of the season out of the way. Not the end of the world really although probably not what they’d have expected given they hadn’t lost on the opening day at Old Trafford since 1972 and Swansea had never won there in the Premier [...]

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 [...]

The 2014/15 Season: Jose Knows

Our Premier League campaign might not kick-off until Monday but in yesterday’s press conference, Jose Mourinho sounded more than ready for the new season. Our first XI might be a different matter, with the Chelsea boss confirming ‚ÄúProbably the first two or three matches will be more about the team that is ready than what [...]

Will ‘The More Carefully Selected One’ Match Mourinho?

Remember this time last year when United were making lame comparisons between their Chosen One and The Special One? Of course, that initial and as it turned out, naive crowing only added to the hilarity as the season progressed – although theirs didn’t really, did it? Whilst Jose Mourinho walked us through the season, always [...]

Pre-season 2014/15: Tears, Tantrums & Testosterone

From the stagnation that is closed season, pre-season proper is a time for speculation, excitation and potentially even ejaculation, or at least pre-season on Twitter is. With testosterone levels increasing on an almost tweet by tweet basis, shoulders are squared, chests puffed out and keyboards undoubtedly hammered as one-upmanship starts in earnest.

Lampard v Chelsea: does he sky it or score?

Widespread pictures of Frank Lampard in a Manchester City shirt made my heart ache a little yesterday. In fact more than that, I actually winced at the sight. Why? He left Chelsea this summer after 13 years of service, so it’s entirely up to him where he plays out the remainder of his career. Realistically [...]

Suarez: The Ugly Side of the Beautiful Game

It’s 2014 and football has finally lost it’s way. Ok, not necessarily the game itself because we’ve seen some lovely stuff during the 2014 World Cup, but everything else that surrounds it. From the supporters, managers and players, through to the pundits, journalists and governing bodies, the plot has become well and truly lost. Or [...]

Old Wounds Still Sore For Wenger

It may only be February but Pantomime season seems to have arrived early in the Premier League and there’s no prizes for guessing who’s been cast as the villain. There is a seriously unhealthy obsession with Jose Mourinho in the Premier League. He’s like an itch the football world just has to scratch. A wound [...]

A Mata of Motive?

I’ve had to sit back a bit this week and soak up the mass hysteria as Chelsea sell one of our best ever signings to a rival club in the Premier League……and not just any rival club either, because as even the remotest of Inuit tribes running around the Arctic with their harpoons will by [...]

A Mata Of How You Play The Game

The transfer window is open again and predictably Juan Mata has become a hot topic for debate – I say predictably because aside from the fact he’s barely got his boots dirty for Chelsea since the return of Jose Mourinho, the way he stropped off the pitch when subbed against Southampton at the weekend spoke [...]
