CHELSEA 1-1 Southampton: Advancing Slowly


The draw and performance might not have blown us away but given a six point lead with a game in hand at the start of the weekend – then after a two hour game midweek, we probably would have taken it.
After a poor first half, we took the game to a very resilient Southampton side in the second and were unlucky not to pinch it late on.… Read More

Spurs 5-3 CHELSEA: No Defence Offered

I’m not really sure what to say after yesterday’s game.
Whilst I agree with Jose in terms of the handball/penalty decision, I don’t think this is a result we could blame anyone but the boss and players for. I don’t understand how we could play in the manner we did and I don’t understand Mourinho’s response (or lack of) to the spanking we took.… Read More

Southampton 1-1 CHELSEA: No Luck, No Judgement

So, 1-all it finished but given our dominance in the second half and Fabregas’ yellow card for daring to be fouled in the area, we can probably consider ourselves unlucky not to have taken all 3 points at St Mary’s. On the other hand, some say you make your own luck – and we didn’t do enough of that on the day.… Read More

CHELSEA 2-0 Hull: Points Deserved

There was an abundance of bookings in this one yesterday, some justified, some less so. A fully deserved red card for Huddlestone, a completely unjust booking for Costa again and overall, a ref who completely lost control of a game in which a couple of our players embarrassed us a bit.… Read More

CHELSEA 2-0 West Brom: Boing! Boing!

You probably won’t read much about it because there was a late game on for 4th place but just to be clear, Chelsea remain unbeaten in the Premier League after yet another impressive display against West Brom yesterday.
Realistically, the game was won before half time in 45 minutes of football Jose Mourinho described as ‘amazing’, with Eden Hazard and Diego Costa terrorising the Baggies defence.… Read More

Liverpool 1-2 CHELSEA: Tidy Job From Jose

I had an uneasy feeling about this game before the start, even more so once we’d gone a goal down. I should have had more faith because as it turned out, it was litter rather than points we were guilty of dropping yesterday.
Not the best start we’ve had to a game although they could consider themselves extremely lucky with a deflected opener.… Read More

CHELSEA 6-0 Maribor: Hurricane Hazard Hits Stamford Bridge


Whilst hurricane Gonzalo threatened to infiltrate Britain, at Stamford Bridge it was all a bit of a breeze for Chelsea against Maribor in the Champions League. Despite previous draws against Schalke and Sporting, last night proved to be a wake up call for the visitors, with their goal given a bit of a battering.… Read More

Steaua 0-4 Chelsea: More Cruise Than Crisis

Last time out in Europe we had a bad night, so this was one of them clichéd ‘must win’ games.  As it turns out, we didn’t just win it, we did so emphatically with a few more positives for Jose Mourinho to tuck under his belt as the work he’s put in (and the stick he’s taken for it) showed real signs of paying off.… Read More

Spurs 1-1 CHELSEA: Torres Clawing His Way Back To Form

No handbags at dawn in the dugouts, whatever the press might have us believe, but the claws were definitely out on the pitch – or at least Torres’ were anyway. Gutting to see him go off for a non-offence in the end though, given it was the best performance we’ve seen from him in a very long time but there were more positives than negatives to take away from this game, not least of all the return of Mata – because for all the focus on ‘the sorcerer and his apprentice’ before the game, Juan Mata was the one who really brought a bit of magic to the proceedings.… Read More

CHELSEA 2-0 Fulham: Critics in Crisis Now?

If anyone has managed to wade through various tweets/back pages/football forums etc dedicated  almost solely to Juan Mata’s non-selection, they might have picked up the merest hint that a game was actually taking place at Stamford Bridge.  Before that game, we had suffered one narrow defeat in the Premier League to Everton but the mass hysterics coming from the media had Jose on the ropes, the wheels coming off Chelsea’s wagon and our season written off with just about every football cliché you can imagine.… Read More
