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 [...]

Lukaku Loan: Just Common Sense

With the haul from our strikers as scant this season as a Mylie Cyrus hemline, it’s not all that surprising Jose Mourinho has had the loan of Romelu Lukaku thrown at him on an almost weekly basis – or is it? Whilst Chelsea have had to rely on goals from anywhere but our frontmen, Lukaku [...]

Chelsea: Reverting To The Blame Game?

What a difference a week makes. One minute we’re ecstatic after a hard fought 3 points away – the 3 goals conceded overlooked in favour of our fighting spirit in the triumph – the next, we concede the same amount of goals in defeat away and the six goals together are a sign of our [...]

Chelsea On Collision Course With FA Now?

I have a feeling Chelsea might be in for a rocky ride with the FA.  Not that we haven’t had our issues with them before of course, but with Dick van Greg Dyke appearing less than subtle in his dislike for Chelsea FC, let’s just call it intuition.

England: Why Wilshere Isn’t Wrong

Jack Wilshere saying he thinks English players should play for England is a bit like saying professional football players shouldn’t smoke – you know it’s the ideal but there’s bound to be some who don’t agree with it, eh Jack? I mean, in theory you’d think it was pretty black and white but in practice, [...]

Mourinho: Why All The Questions?

From Twitter to MOTD Jose Mourinho is questioned week in, week out. From team selection to transfers, it’s analysed, criticized and second guessed. In fact, whatever Jose’s done is usually the exact opposite of what every pundit, be it armchair amateur or studio, would advocate – and yet, Jose Mourinho is the only one of [...]

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 [...]

Jose: Through Doubt and Derision

So, after the win against Fulham, Jose Mourinho took the opportunity to explain his stance on Juan Mata.  He did so openly, honestly – and in English – and yet, given the constant questioning, second guessing and downright disrespect aimed at him since, he might as well have been speaking double Dutch. In front of [...]
