What do you make of the atmosphere at Stamford Bridge this season? Whilst not exactly in the realms of ‘the library’, it’s not really conducive to Champions of Europe style performances either is it? One person who sounds as if he thinks both of the above apply though is TheChelseaBlog reader Josh Holmes. Have a [...]
Let’s be under no illusion here. Roman Abramovich was spot on in sacking Roberto Di Matteo. No question. Di Matteo wasn’t delivering the results Roman craved, and he had to go, it’s really very simple. Chelsea’s performance in Turin was embarrassingly bad.

Exactly how improbable was Chelsea’s run to European glory last season? Well let’s take a look at how the bookmaker’s saw Chelsea’s chances as the Champions League 2011/2012 edition evolved.
