What’s happened at Chelsea?

Where to start.

Seriously, we were at home to Spurs and we were a goal up. Not just that but we were the best side for the first 44 minutes – and yet we threw it away. In fact, we didn’t just throw it away, we put a ribbon round it, stuck a bow on it and gifted it to a team we’d refused to lose to in the previous 28 years.Read More

Why the summer transfer window will be the most important in the Abramovich era

There is a sense of deja vu among us Chelsea fans as this dismal season enters its final phase. There is an increasing feeling that Antonio Conte is going to join the long list of managerial casualties in the summer, after failing to follow-up on last season’s heroics. It’s been a series of events we’ve seen time and again in the past, but always, the trophies have continued to flow in.… Read More

Chelsea: Patience and Perspective Needed

Chelsea’s first three games of the season looked promising. Even the draw against Swansea could be put down to poor officiating but last night, after some early season dizziness, we came back down to earth with less of a bump and more of a crash. Quite where our expectations have come from I’m not sure, this is virtually an unchanged side from the one that limped home mid-table in May.… Read More

Chelsea 2016/17 Season: what can we expect?

The new season is upon us, we’ve got a new manager (yet again) and a couple of new players but what’s really changed? According to my Twitter feed, not very much.
United and City pat themselves on the back every tweet for their spending prowess and every headline (predictably) has Mourinho as the messiah.… Read More

John Terry: Why it’s not a ‘fitting’ end

We all knew the day had to come at some point but it feels maybe a season too soon, and now certainly two games too soon. With the club remaining as tight-lipped, and tight-pocketed as they have all season, it seems John Terry’s Chelsea career has come to an end.
There’ll be some of us who’ve watched his entire career develop, as he’s grown from his debut as an 18 year old, into our our highest scoring defender, our most successful captain, a leader and yes, ultimately a legend at Chelsea Football Club.… Read More

Player petulance or board stupid?

In 2007, it was player power that saw the end of Jose Mourinho’s first spell in charge at Chelsea, fast forward 8 years and history looks to be repeating itself at Stamford Bridge.
Just as it did in 2007 with Mourinho, in 2009 with Luiz Felipe Scolari and in 2012 with Andres Villas Boas, the Chelsea players’ abysmal form is putting the manager under ever increasing pressure.… Read More

Mourinho Could Stop The Rot


Remember the famous Mourinho bus that used to park itself firmly in front of our goal? Well I’m not going to suggest the wheels have come off because it would actually be a bonus if that had happened, or at least if it happened in the right place on the pitch.… Read More

Jose Mourinho: Business As Usual


No sooner has the new season got under way than Chelsea find themselves in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Not the red card for Courtois though, or even the draw at home to Swansea on the opening day – as ever, it’s Jose Mourinho. … Read More

Eva Carneiro: Who’s Really Got The Agenda?


Eva Carneiro, is still Chelsea’s first-team doctor, she hasn’t been sacked and she isn’t some poor victim of sexism from Jose Mourinho. She was simply told off for actions the Chelsea boss disagreed with – and she chose to take to Facebook as a result. … Read More

Anti-football or Just Anti-Chelsea?


Anti-football they say? Top of the table since August, still the only unbeaten side at home, lost just 2 games all season, 10 point gap, better goal difference – anti-football my backside. … Read More
