Rooney: Chelsea’s Priority, United’s Option

I don’t want to go into the new season with a row (although I probably will) but some things just can’t be left unsaid. It’s this whole Wayne Rooney thing – or more to the point, United’s reaction to it – it’s driving me up the wall now and if I bite my tongue any [...]

Chelsea: The Rationale for Rooney

So, Wayne Rooney eh? Is he coming or not? And more importantly, do we want him to?  Well that depends on who you’re talking to. I had a conversation with my dad about him the other night and we’re both on the ‘yes’ side of the fence. My eldest son however, whilst inheriting the general [...]

Midfielder Heading To Chelsea

I have to admit I know nothing about Marco van Ginkel but Jose obviously knows a lot more because the 20 year old Vitesse Arnhem midfielder looks set to become Mourinho’s second signing of the summer. Rumoured to be worth somewhere in the region of £8 million, the youngster who was a regular for the [...]

Cavani: Are Chelsea Really In The Race?

Chelsea & Lampard: Just Gamesmanship?

Ok, so I don’t want Lampard to leave yet either but are we going to have the daily outcry/mourning/rumours for the next five months? Whilst the press have happily picked it up as yet another stick to beat us with, Twitter is doing its very best impression of the world’s worst ever round of Chinese [...]

Good Luck Sturridge!

So, Daniel Sturridge has made his move to a “humungous” club and despite this being his third permanent Premier League club at the age of 23, has been warned it’s his “last chance”.

Chelsea’s Busiest Recruit?

Ok, I appreciate Eva Carneiro has her attributes as a physio but is it necessary for the club to keep her quite so busy? She’s already got Oriol Romeu on the books for six months following his knee surgery and John Terry with a bruised bone in his knee. The weekend saw Petr Cech added [...]
