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. Ok, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Everton 1-0 CHELSEA: Reviews

Ok, so as bad days at the office go, this one was reminiscent of Monday morning with a hangover but we all have them. And it was maybe a little worrying that Samuel Eto’o looked about as likely to score against Everton as I would be with David Beckham but one can only presume the [...]

Willian: Welcome To Chelsea

CHELSEA 2-1 Villa: Lambert Left Livid

So, 2 games in and the sight of Jose Mourinho throwing his arms up in the air at the officials was like he’d never been away. Of course, these were purely distraction techniques – diverting their attention away from the fact that we really should have conceded a penalty. But then considering Ivanovic was fortunate [...]

CHELSEA 2-0 Hull: Happy Homecoming

Out like lions and in like …….(not lambs exactly) calmer lions maybe? Whilst there were plenty giving it all that ‘typical Mourinho’ nonsense, I certainly wouldn’t complain about yesterday’s game. Rampant in the first 45, the game was effectively won by half-time, giving us the luxury of sitting back and soaking up anything Hull could [...]

CHELSEA 2-1 Sunderland: Lady Luck Shows Some Form

It didn’t look great for us at half-time, but a bit of good fortune got us back into it and we capitalised on the slip from Spurs in their earlier game. So, here’s how it went:

CHELSEA 1-0 United: Sublime Strike & Save Take Us To Wembley

So, the interim’s plan to put all his eggs in the FA Cup basket paid off this weekend. I’m still aggrieved his priorities don’t seem to be in line with those that really matter to us but a win over United will always be welcome. So, here’s how it happened:
