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. As [...]

Terry & Costa Cut From the Same Cloth?

Not wanting to turn the blog into a Costa love-fest too early in the season but what a ridiculously good buy he’s looking to be. So far this season, we’ve had 7 goals in four games, so there’s no doubt we’ve got ourselves a striker. It’s not just the goals though, or the fact we [...]

Costa Comfortable in Premier League

Some said he was overrated, some said he’d be a waste of money, some even said he’d score goals but I bet none of us expected quite what we’ve got so far. Diego Costa. What a player. What a buy.

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 [...]

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 [...]
