Get On Mourinho’s Bandwagon, Not His Back

As we head swiftly into April, with weeks rather than months of the season left, it’s hard not to drag out a cliché or two. “If you’d told us in August we’d be top…..”, “6 point gap, game in hand….”, “it’s in our own hands…” But realistically, who wouldn’t rather be in Chelsea’s position right now?… Read More

The Greatest Gift the Blues Can Receive is Patience

As the football world is becoming even more popular, a new caliber of fan has been born. This new character amongst the sport is typically very passionate, smart (sometimes too smart), and can even be relatively wealthy. These new additions are great for football both globally and in England. However, this new found passion, coupled with their unfamiliarity with the cyclical nature of football clubs, leads to a considerable amount of impatience.… Read More

Is It Really Football That’s Toxic?

Last summer, John Bieniewicz, a referee in America was punched and knocked out by a football player he was trying to send off. Bieniewicz, a husband and father, died two days later and, last week, the player was quite rightly sent to prison. An absolute tragedy for his family and a stain on football for America that such unforgivable, abhorrent behaviour from a player should have such a heartbreaking and fatal end.… Read More

Strange Sort of Justice


It’s one thing the hacks jumping all over Jose Mourinho’s comments about yet another inept refereeing decision yesterday, after all, some parts of the British public might even waste the few minutes it takes to read their drivel but Garth Crooks? Really? If we’re supposed to take anything he has to say seriously, then I’d really rather be illiterate.… 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

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 managed to get him for little more than Everton paid us for Romelu Lukaku, no, the surprise part of the package for m is his work ethic.… Read More

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. … 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

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 League before Saturday either.… 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
