CHELSEA vs Wigan: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Date: Saturday, 28 February

Kick-off: 1500 GMT

We go into today’s game against Wigan ten points behind the league leaders and if we’re going to continue to push Liverpool for second place, then nothing less than 3 points will do at Stamford Bridge today.

Hiddink seems to be going on about something a little more than second place, however unrealistic that might appear to the rest of us, and prior to the game says “If we are focusing on the title then we have to win everything that is true.Read More

Guus Hiddink Waiting For Love At Stamford Bridge?

It seems to be one Russian connection after another lately as far as links in the press to Chelsea are concerned anyway and with Didier Drogba’s future never certain, it seems Chelsea are keeping CSKA Moscow’s Vagner Love in mind as a possible replacement.

With the Ivorian playing his usual guessing games this season, it’s hardly surprising Chelsea have declined to open talks yet on his contract which expires next summer.Read More

Hiddink’s Future Still Undecided?

Will he? Won’t he?

The question of whether or not Guus Hiddink will stay at Chelsea past the summer is one that probably won’t be answered for certain until the time comes but that doesn’t stop the speculation.

And the latest round of speculation seems to be based on the fact that he hasn’t categorically ruled it out.Read More

Roman Invasion?

Roman Abramovich seems to be collecting quite a family around himself. It wasn’t that long ago we were hearing stories linking Chelsea with a couple of young Russian players and now it seems he’s snapped up one of Russia’s under-17’s to boost our youth academy.

16 year old Roman Emilianov was spotted during an Abramovich-sponsored training camp in Russia last summer and has since been signed by the club.Read More

Kalou Dreaming Of Arsenal

What the bloody hell does Salomon Kalou think he’s playing at?

It’s the business end of the season, he’s had over 30 appearances for us so far and yet he’s shooting off at the mouth about his ‘dream’ to play for Arsenal.

In a little chat with Setanta, the Chelsea winger says “Every single player in the world dreams of playing for Arsene Wenger.Read More

Chelsea Chasing Another ‘Wonderkid’?

If recent reports are anything to go by, it would seem Chelsea are after another ‘wonderkid’.

16 year old Vaclav Kadlec is regarded as the best thing to come out of the Czech Republic since Tomas Rosicky and according to the press, we’re keeping more than a close eye on the £6million rated youngster.Read More

CHELSEA 1-0 Juventus: Still Work To Do


Pretty much as expected, Claudio Ranieri received a warm welcome from the home crowd,  with the crowd almost as pleased to see him as they were to see Drogba and Anelka starting together for this one.  Ok, so it wasn’t quite the formation we’ve been waiting to see, with Anelka again on the left but we’ll have to make do with it.Read More

Essien Setting His Sights On Juventus

With us playing Juventus tonight, there could be one spectator in particular with a lot more interest in the return game than this one.

A certain Ghanaian midfielder trained with his team mates ahead of tonight’s game and has his sights firmly set on getting himself in shape for the return leg in Italy.Read More

CHELSEA vs Juventus: Champions League Preview

Uefa Champions League, First knock-out round, first leg

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Date: Wednesday, 25 February 2009

Kick-off: 19:45 GMT

Former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri makes a return to Stamford Bridge tonight in the first meeting between us and Juventus. Ranieri managed us for almost 4 years between 2000 and 2004, a period during which we played a total of 12 Champions League games, reaching the semi-finals in 2004 before being knocked out by Monaco.Read More

Deco Missing Again

Oh look, we have a big game tonight and a certain Brazilian playmaker has withdrawn from the squad – excuse me if I can’t act anymore surprised but it seems ‘big game’ and ‘Deco out’ are a much more predictable pairing than our front two this season. Or am I just a cynic?Read More
