Another £35m midfielder targeted, with Drinkwater future in doubt

After spending over £70 million on the duo of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater last summer, it looks like we are going to be at it again this summer. Central midfield remains a problem at Stamford Bridge, with Bakayoko flopping badly so far, and Drinkwater hardly getting a game.

According to French source L’Equipe, we could target Nice midfielder Jean-Michel Seri in the summer.… Read More

Transfer news: European giants want to sign Chelsea winger

Winger Kenedy’s loan move to Newcastle United is panning out very well indeed. Since moving to St. James’ Park inin January, he has started every one of their eight Premier League games, recording 2 goals and 2 assists thus far. His best performance came last month at home against Southamptin, where he scored a brace that included a truly wonderful solo effort.… Read More

Top 5 candidates to replace Antonio Conte as Chelsea manager

It would be very surprising if Antonio Conte remained at the helm at Stamford Bridge. To be very honest, I’m very surprised he’s still here. Apparently, it’s going to cost the club £9 million in severance fees to sack him. Either way, the Italian’s lack of passion on the touchline and disinterested interviews mean that the writing is very clearly on the wall.… Read More

Why Edin Dzeko to Chelsea doesn’t make much sense

Diego Costa’s exit was possibly the worst thing that happened to us last summer. We’ve talked a lot about our defence and midfield, but the Spaniard’s ability to single-handedly win us crucial points has what has been most sorely missed. We signed Alvaro Morata for 58 million, but he hasn’t really set the world alight despite a very good start.… Read More

5 players we need to replace this summer

There is a lot of deadwood in the current squad, and if we really want to elevate ourselves to being one of the top clubs in Europe, we need a re-haul soon. The last summer transfer window was pretty disappointing, as instead of signing top-quality players, we ended up spending on above-average ones who are only good enough to be squad players at best.… Read More

Player petulance or board stupid?

In 2007, it was player power that saw the end of Jose Mourinho’s first spell in charge at Chelsea, fast forward 8 years and history looks to be repeating itself at Stamford Bridge.
Just as it did in 2007 with Mourinho, in 2009 with Luiz Felipe Scolari and in 2012 with Andres Villas Boas, the Chelsea players’ abysmal form is putting the manager under ever increasing pressure.… Read More

Mourinho Could Stop The Rot


Remember the famous Mourinho bus that used to park itself firmly in front of our goal? Well I’m not going to suggest the wheels have come off because it would actually be a bonus if that had happened, or at least if it happened in the right place on the pitch.… Read More

Why Bale Signing is Hard To Resist

In the last few weeks, Chelsea have been linked with Real Madrid winger, Gareth Bale. It has survived past a few weeks, which means the media is either bored, or the move could actually have some substance. At first glance, the idea of Bale wearing blue next season seems ridiculous. I was guilty of taking the attitude of “we don’t need him anyway”.… Read More

Chelsea Dwelling on the Past?


It might be silly season, with Chelsea linked with everyone except Joey Barton so far but the link with a return for Didier Drogba at least gives us something to debate. … Read More

Chelsea Ready To Cash In On Players?


With Petr Cech now in his tenth year at Chelsea, a general assumption might have been that Thibaut Courtois would be the natural successor to the number 1 shirt in the near future. Having spent the past two and a half seasons at Atletico Madrid, the Belgian keeper has never made a professional appearance for us but has done pretty well for himself in Spain, and with Petr Cech showing no signs yet of climbing up the hill never mind being over it, Courtois knows he’ll need a chat with Chelsea to decide on his future.… Read More
