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 [...]

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 [...]

CHELSEA v Arsenal: Preview

                  Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 22 March Kick-off: 15.00 GMT  The press might want to pile on the pressure with talk of not just Mourinho’s unbeaten run in ten meetings with Arsene Wenger but also his record 75 game unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge but given [...]

Do City Really Have The Edge In Title Race?

With Pellegrini confidently stating “the biggest club is City now” and the Manchester club still fighting on all four fronts, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho believes as far as the Premier League title goes at least, Man City have the advantage.

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 [...]

CHELSEA v Manchester United: Preview

                Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 19 January Kick-off: 16.00 GMT Here we go then.  Historically one of my least favoured fixtures sees us up against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge in the late game today.  Why least favoured? Just because its Manchester United and controversy is bound [...]

Wenger 0-1 Mourinho

You have to love Jose Mourinho (although apparently some don’t). While Wenger was getting all bent out of shape over their ‘penalty’ appeal and Arteta’s bruised ankle (completely ignoring that challenge on Azpilicueta by the way), Mourinho was pointing out what pussies they all are. Ok, it wasn’t our best performance (again) but going into [...]

CHELSEA v City: Talking To The Opposition

Ahead of tomorrow’s game against City, The Chelsea Blog and Chelseadaft answered a few questions for the opposition over at Bluemoon. Here’s how it went:

United 0-0 CHELSEA: More Questions Than Answers

As ever, the hype pre-match was a lot more exciting than any of the attacking moves in the game itself but then for me, this rather resembled ten-pin bowling…….. albeit minus the bowling ball. I mean, you’re going to struggle from the start if you’ve forgotten that piece of equipment, right? Well, it seems Jose [...]

United v CHELSEA Preview: From The Fans

Something a bit different to the usual pre-match blog interview this season. Twitter always seems to have plenty to say for itself so ahead of today’s game, @TheChelseaBlog posed a few questions to its followers and here’s a selection of what came back:
